liberal arts college went on the air. Through the cooperation of the National Broadcasting Company and a group of ed ucators interested in the future of the liberal arts college as a vital unit in our educational system, its case was forcefully presented to the radio audience of the nation. Beginning at nine o'clock, Eastern Standard Time, a network of fortysix radio stations carried a half-hour program on the general theme of "The Liberal Arts College", which, according to the estimate of the National

BROADCAST TO BE ON APRlt 2 "Otterbein Night" To Go on Air From Station KDKA April 2-Broadcast from KDKA Every college group and friend of Otterbein should be looking towards the annual Otterbein Night, April 2, 1932. f 'o s·e veral eaics ,:his- irrrporta11l eve nt has ,been se t for the period just before Easter which often conflicted with local program s, especially church services. Thi s year Otterbein N ight will occur during vacation week when th e students wil l be at hom e and can participate in this celebration with the local gro up .

Broadcasting Company, was heard by more than 4S;000,000 listeners-in. President Rerbert Hoover said: "I am glad to express appreciation of the service of the liberal arts college-that is, the small college. I do this the more freely because of the more than 600 such in stitutions in our land. Most of them have little, if any, endowment or state support. In these times of trends toward larger units the difficulties of the unsupported small college multiply, which make their successful operation s less hopeful, and in many cases a desperate struggle. "The important place which these institutions hold in our system of ed ucation renders their support of the utmost importance. Whatever be the magnificent services of the larger and highly specialized universiti es, the liberal arts colleges place an emphasis upon personsal contacts of teacher and student which render them a vital part of our educational system. "A primary purpose of education is a product of high character and noble ideals, which r egard moral and spiritual qualities superior to mere material things, without which any purely economic system would collapse. "Throughout our history these colleges have been and are now the seedbeds of leadership. They have cont ributed a large part to the presence in our land of nearly 2,000,000 co llege train ed men and wom en. There is a great hon or toll of m en and women in our nation . The fine st trad itions of our co untry are rooted in their association s and their in sp iration s".

HOMECOMING FEBRUARY 12 Basketball Game And Parties Planned For Alumni Friday night, February 12, has been set as the date for the Winter Homecoming. This event has been growing in popularity for several years and numbers of alumni and friends find their way back to the campus to see the basket ball team in action. This year our old rivals Heidelberg will p rovide the opposition. Heidelberg has a great team and the game will be a hard fought one . Reunions and parties usuall y follow the game and the studen t body is lookin g fo r ward to the day with pleasure. This is also the time when some of our alumni bring in the boys and girls from their local schools who are looking forward to a course in Otterbein. If any friend or former student has not made preparation for the entertainment of these prospective students plea se communicate with the Alumni office. Some rather big events are being planned this year but the details have not ye t been worked out. Set this date aside and plan to be of the number who will make this a grea t day. \ l,/ ore! has ju s t been received of the death of Joseph Milton Bever of th e class of '76, at Seattle, Washington, September, 19.31.

Alumni Council Member Dies Since our last issue Otterbein and the church has suffered a great loss in the death of Dr. Noah E. Cornetet, professor of Greek since 1902. Dr. Cornetet was known and loved by hundreds who had known him as a teacher and friend, as pastor and advisor. He had been suffering for several years from a heart weakness which culminated in his passing on Friday, November 13th. He was especially interested in the work of the Alumni Association and had been a member of the Alumni Council since its organization, where his good judgment and kind couni3el was an 111 spiration to his associates. He leaves a loving wife and five children to mourn his loss.

CAGE TEAM IS ONE OF BEST Has Possibilities In Spite Of Two Defeats By William Botts .'\]th o ugh the Otterbein coll ege bask et ba ll team ha s only been able to break even in the four game s played so far, no o ne can den y that the team this year ha s possib iliti es. We can even go so far as to say it is one of the best court team s to eve r re.p resent Otte1·bei11. Stars On Team \\ ' hen Dr. Edler issued his initial cal l, five lettermen, An drews, Francis, Axlin e, Robinson and B-otts r epor ted from la st yea,r 's squad along wi th a likely looking group of sophomo r es. T he main cogs in the new varsity five are Sam A ndr ews, Dayton and Barney Franci s, Tiffin who were given honorable m e ntion on last year's AllOhio. Several of the lettermen, counted upon to w111 r egu lar berths, were shoved out •by the sop homore men: V ir gi l Hinton, Canton M-cKinley; Bob Albright, Dayton Stivers; Ray Schick, Westerville; Bud ·worstell, Lima; Henry Furniss, Galena; Claire Rice, Danville: and Roger Huhn, \i\l es terville, Of the above mentioned, Hinton, Sc hick and Albright have' won positions on the varsi ty with Worstell and Rice bei ng first s ubstitutes . For the first time in man y years the center position , a cause of worry to the coaches, has been ably filled by A l'bright and 'Worste l. Both m en are agre ssive and scrappers. Al·bright, by hi s con iderable expe rience, has won th e regular position . At the forwards we hav e Hinton and Francis. Hinton is a newcomer to the team and is the first left-handed man on an Otterbein team since the clays of Ralph Gibson. He is an excellent shot, but lacks experience. Francis was second high scorer of the team last year with 141 points in twelve games. He is an excellent all -around man. At th e gua rd s are Andrews a nd Schick. Andrews is a real star-lead hi s team in scoring last year with 142 point s. Sc hick is a so phomore and a scrappy one at that. vVith m o re experience, Schick wil l be anot her Andrew s. Win Two Games The first two games played were victories for the Ecllerrnen over Bowling Gr een 29-28 and Kenyon 36-28. Andrews won the Bowling Green game with a ·basket in the final minutes of p lay. Otterbein lead througho ut the contes t and were better shots then their opponents. The Kenyon game was a shooting practice for Otterbein . Andrew s a nd Francis lead the scoring. In the two defeats suffered by the Cardinals, Ohio Northern won 36-28 and Marietta won a thriller in two overtime periods by a 43-42 score. As usual Andrews and Francis were the hi,gh point men, although pressed hard by Albright. Rice a sub entered the

TRACK TEAM IS ONLY UNDEFEATED OUTFIT Otterbein had good athletic teams in every s port this year but the only undefeated group was the track team. The Otterbein thin-clads ran roughshod over all their opponents to complete the season without a blemi sh on their record . Coach Floyd Beelman, Otterbein star of several years back was the guiding mentor and secured fine coope rati on throughout the year. As in football not many men were lost by th e way of g raduation and the team for next season shou ld be able to keep up the good wo rk of the pa s t sea son in fin e s ty le.

THE SHIVELY FAMILY ON FURLOUGH Rev. B . F . S hively, '05, ~fr s. Grace R es ler Shively, '06, and son, Donald, are spending th ei r furlough from the mi ss ion field in 1i\l esterville. They returned last summer bringing their son, J ohn, with them to re-enter Otterbein where he had al re ady spent two years. Mr. and Mrs. Shively also have two -daughters, Mary an-d Alice, in col lege. These three children are all in the Junior class, which is unusual for one family. Rev. Shively ha s been teaching in D os hisha Missio n School in Ky oto , J apan for more than twent y years. The Shiveleys a re fillin g speaking engagements in variou s part s of the country and are in demand at thi s time for _such subjects as the "Manchurian Situation" and phases of Japanese life and culture. If interested in ha vi n.g Dr. Shively speak to your people addre ss hi m at vVe sterville, Ohio. They expect to return to Japan so metime this year.

Marietta game near the encl of the game and kept his team in the running ·by scoring five points. There are eight games remaining on the schedule with the homecoming game on February 12 with Heidelberg. For the first time since 1927 prospects loom very bright for a successful baseball t eason. .Only two lettermen were lost through graduation and both of these were subs.

GOOD TEAM

IS PROSPECT· Gridiron Outfit To Be Composed Of Veterans By Dale B . Evans Otterbe in fans s hould see one of the fine st footba ll teams in history twt upon the field October fir st, when the Cardinal s line up against the best Oberl in ha s to offer. Coach Edler has a team of vetera n s that knovv the Edler system of football read y to answer the call as not o ne fir s t team man w ill be graduated in June, that is if the boys a ll make the grade and come back. Coach Ed ler developed two All-Ohio men this year in Francis and Bowells and s hould make ever yo ne of the eight opponents of the coming season realize that at last little Otterbein has a real -c oach and a real team . Lane and Camp'hell will be at the end posts next year with Sprecker, Heil and Worstell pushing them hard to get the job s. Garrett and Bowells, those two iron men of Dayton will make the Card's opponents "take them and like it" from the tackle position. Spor'k and Bennett with the the experience gained last season should also see a bit of action. Huhn and Miller, two hard driving interference running guard s will have a hard time holding their positions against the on--rush of Morri so n and Shope. Shope won a letter this yeat at the g uard posts. Hal Mart in and Hugi: Glover will aga in be r eady to handle the center pos t. Both are mighty tough boys. In the backfield will be All-Ohio Francis directing the play with Schick, Hu ston, Albright, Knepshield, Nu tt. Scott, and Weaston trying for halfback jobs. The elu sive, hard hitting Schick seems to be most sure of his job as a running mate to Albright. The veterans S:hort, Paul Schott, and J o hn Schott will take care of the full-back's work with Short ahead in the race for the post. Other members of the freshman team who shou l-d give the vets a workout are George, Barton, Orndorff, Shish ler. Cox , Land o n , Messmer, Pu rel y, Va n Sick le, and Harr is.
