owner of Rogers Park and Wondei
Cave to put on a contest among the
summer students for the best, most
original and individual account of a
tram p thru “Wonder Cave.” Any
student, regular or summer Normal,
regularly enrolled for the summer
1921, is eligible to the contest. Man-
uscripts must not exceed 1,000 words
in length. They are to be submitted
to the English Department for read-
ing and rating not later than August
9th. The writer of the manuscript
rated first by the judges will receive
a cash prize of $10; that of the
second best, $5; all manuscripts to be
the property of Mr. Rogers.
The English Department will an-
nounce later the details of the con-
test and instructions to contestants.
If you think you are a good observer
and can tell what you observe in an
original and interesting manner, now
is a good time not only to see the
very interesting sights of “Wonder
Cave” but also to convert your ob-
servations into ready coin thru the
medium of effective communication
Prospective contestants will do well
to see either Mr. Thomas or Mr.Mills
at once, to get specific directions
about the details of the contest. We
hope the students will show their ap-
preciations of Mr. Roger’s offer by
putting on a lively contest.
Many complaints have come to our
attention recently concerning the in-
convenience of securing books from
the Library. For the past few weeks
an important change nas been m
effect in the Normal Library. The
privilege of reserving books for defi-
nite times as been discontinued.
This has worked a serious hardship
on many students, particularly those
who participate in athletics, for ow-
ing to the shortage of reference
books the supply is always exhausted
before the athletic boys can come to
the Library The rule is that no books
can be taken out until six p. m., and
that books cannot be reserved ahead
of time. This compels those who
wish to get books to appear at the
Library at that time. This is not
democratic for only a certain part of
the student body can secure the bene-
fit of reference books, baseball men
and many others being prevented
from securing proper reference books
whereas if the system of reserving
books was in use as formerly every
one would be given a fair chance
If you are interested in securing this
needed reform express your wishes
to your member of the Student Wel-
fare Council Council.

At seven o’clock last Saturday
a representation of the membership
of the Harris-Blair society, accom-
panied by an equal number of the
fair sex and under the chaperonage
of Mr. and Mrs. C. E. ChambefS-n
left the city for a moonlight trip to
Dew Di-op Inn. After arriving there
we found to our disappointment that
it would not be possible to indulge m
a plunge in the Blanco, as previously
planned, as the water here was too
deep for amateur swimmers, as
some of the young ladies professed
to be. A very pleasant time was en -
joyed strolling along the banks of
the river and enjoying the cool
breeze which offers such a strong-
contrast to the dry hot wind of the
city and the monotony of the class-
room to which all of us had more or
less been accustomed to. The fea-
ture of the entertainment, howeved,
was conceded to be the miniature
boxing match between Messrs. Bachie
and Perry, in which Mr.Perry show-
ed splendid spirit and extraordinary
courage, but was clearly outclassed
by the clear-headed and hard-hitting
Bachie. Immediately after the con-
tests, the Harris-Blair boys displayed
their talent as hosts and waiters by
serving ice-cold water melons to the
guests. In order to conform to the
boarding house regulations, the party
left the camping grounds aFout ten
o’clock, each one expdessing nis grat-
itude and appreciation of a very en-
At the regular meeting of the
Harris-Blair society last Monday
morning, as there was no regular
program, the Society considered the
election of the debaters for the annual
inter-society debate to be held at the
close of the Summer Session. Much
enthusiasm was shown by the mem-
bers and prospective debaters, and
after some discussion, the debaters
were elected. There is much interest
being manifested by both societies re-
garding this debate, and as the ques-
tion to be debated is a live and cur-
rent question, the student body is
looking forward to the solution of
the problem with anticipation and

Johnson also received a free pass
while Mahew temporarily crumpled
Brown singled over second and Jen-

to score in the ninth altho they put
two men on base.
The Cats are getting over their old
fear of the Legion and with a little

Time—1 hour, 40 minutes.
I ve got three B’s and on my knee
I’ll thank myself and Heaven;
I wanted A’s, but then dear me
I’m glad for what I’m given.
Mr. Birdwell, I could tell, *
Had ne’er a A for me.
Because I slipt and nearly fell
On question four, you see.
And then, by golly, Dr. Nolle,
Altho he acted squarely,
Could not o’er look my lack of book
When the term had started, barely.
When e’er I’d etymologyze
And think quite sure I had it,
He would advise, to my surprise,
“Get the dictionary habit.”
Ah, dear me, in Chemistry
My chance seemed mighty slim
But “heart’s” in Harter, don’t you see ?
That’s how I “got by” him.
And then Miss Goodman is a. woman
Familiar with the “lab” book,
She aided me and also Cowan
And counciled us on note books.

College 4; Summer
Manager Marsh pushed his College
Stars to a decisive victory over Man-
ager McWilliams’ Hopeful Pedagogs
on Evans field Thursday afternoon.
Mahew proved too much medicine
for the smaller boys, and allowed
Finfrock to take his dictatorship in
the seventh inning. Weige had the
“stuff” on the Collegians but his
team erred behind him at critical
times. The feature of the game from
the students standpoint was the sin -
cere backing the two managers gave
their teams. Several times Coach
Strahan rushed between the two
“John McGraws” to keep the fans
from witnessing a fistic duel. The
situation was averted however and
the two managers are on speaking
terms ’tis heard.
Batteries: College, Mahew,Finfrock
