Speedy McKay-Hart Tennis Match Today at
Saturday March 30 was a gala day for the. mighty men
of the "White House." Mr. 1. M. Fixemup interior decorator
from London completed his unfinished decorating at the
White House. All the athletic heroes from. Hog Hollow
Goose Creek and Muleshoe returned home from the Easter
holidays to get the surprise of their lives. Their place of
abode was not a ten-room house any longer; it was (and is)
tt uuee-Biury iiiuiiaiun.
Not even the older bova reeoa-
nil their former headquarters.
Alonzo Blttiok and Talpa Thomp-
son slept on the two-Inch rugs In
the beautiful parlor unable to find
their rooms on the third story.
The entire first story is devoted
to recreational purposes. When
you open the door which faoes
Coggln Avenue you are immedi-
ately welcomed by Walter the
used-to-be shine boy who is now
the doorman for the White House
Elite. He supports a wife and
' seven children on his monthly sal-
ary. Several girls are lounging in
the parlor probably come to see
"Red" Adams John Barton and
Gene Hopper using Leap Year as
'an excuse. The parlor is to be
used for the "home lovers"
Squinch "Wolf" Andrew Camp-
bell and J. H. Childs who will do
their home-loving there.
After checking your hat and
coat you are escorted through the
dance hall built to the size of one
of our popular "plonkey tonks."
Where did that name come from?
This was done in order that Hugh
Gleaton Trussell Gaddy and Os-
car would feel at home really.
The College Swingsters are play-
ing every Saturday night.
When the visitors (which are
many) leave the dance hall they
enter the sixty-two table dining
hall. If one visits before the af-
ternoon meal is served he will
find a long table with thirty plates
on each side and one at each end.
At each plate the boy's names
are enseribed on a place card be-
fore It. The two captains Wil-
liam Lee and Leo may be found
sitting at the ends of the tables.
Coaches Ransom and Blair were
table waiters while Mrs. Helen
Post Wright and Mrs. Dora Hunt-
er wash dishes. McNutt the re-
tired governor of Arkansas is
the chief cook.
After partaking of a three-
course meal your writer suddenly
remembered that he had a mes-
sage to send to his girl-friend.
Looking about I discovered Rob-
ert the janitor dressed up in an
official bell-boy's uniform. He
immediately asked to communi-
cate the message for me.
All day Sunday was spent in
preparation for the "Open House"
which has been declared here for
today. Everybody is Invited 1 The
open house is to be topped off with
a buffet supper of "stewed Jack-
rabbits clabber milk and corn-
bread." The climax of the day
will be at 8:00. Immediately fol-
lowing the supper will be a party
on the front lawn. A game called
"briar rabbit sopping" will be
supervised by Red ftoscoe. New-
ton Whitehead the season's fore-
most oontender will be matched
against Sid Pointer last year's
champion for the delight of the
guests. A close race is expected
but Newt with his superior "sop"
is doped to dethrone the cham-
Pon . ..

Library Dice Game
Friday afternoon during a dull
session in the library Miss Rayma
Dillingham cleaned Bertha Foul-
ger of two cents three matches
and five straight pins in a game
of African dominoes near the
book shelves in the far dark cor-
ners. A stray visitor to the sanc-
tuary of the book room overheard
Mrs. McDonald calling on Dilling-
ham to use her Sunday shot. Miss
Dillingham hit a winning streak
at one time during the game and
rolled five sevens and three elev-
ensbefore she diced out.
It is reported that Mrs. McDon-
ald lost a few cents in the game
also as she was fading the in-
vincible Dillingham. The reason
for Miss Foulger's losses is said
to have been her inexperience in
college dice games. She got her
start and fundamentals from that
wicked city of Podunk where she
attended high school. But Miss
Dillingham coached by those two
superior crap shooters Gene Hop-
per and Clifford Ashton easily
overcomes any difficulty present-
ed by her opponent!.
For further results on the daily
crap games in the library see

keep you informed. And watch

3:00 P. M.
Hart Doped Winner;
This afternoon at 3:00 p. m.
Professor T. H. Hart defending
champion of the Daniel Baker
Faculty Tennis Club will meet
Professor McKay in an expected
thrilling tennis match. Prof. Hart
who defeated Dr. Chandler for
the title last year will enter into
the match as the slight favorite.
This is due to the fact that the
reflection of the sun off of the
top of Hurt's bald head will par-
tially blind the contending Mc-
Kay and therefore put him at a
great disadvantage. Hart's wick-
ed serve will also be in favor of
bis winning but McKay's brilliant
backhand stroke may off-set his
opponent's experience. Also Dr.
Hart is said to approach the game
with philosopicul strategy playing
his opponent up into a hole and
then lambasting him to a dead
loss. The local fire department
and ambulance companies have
been notified to be on hand in case
of such an event.
In the semi-finals of the Faculty
tournament Hart defeated Mc-
Nutt 6-3 6-1 while McKay easily
defeated Shorty Ransom 6-love
The matches will be played in
the Daniel Baker Gymnasium in
order to have a good court and
stands for the large crowd of spec-
tators who are expected to attend
the affair. The admission to the
match will be 20c and 36c and the
proceeds will go to buy linament
for the players to use after the
game is over. A shirt-tail parade
will be held on the campus to
honor the winner of this long-
