OF BASKETBALL SEASON By Dale Evans

Seven wins against five losses te lls the story of the 1931-32 basketball season of the Otterbein Cardinals, but does not in any way explain some of the great battles put up by the Cards in lo sing those five games. Real basketball was played by those veterans An drews and Francis and the spohomores, Hinton, Schick, Albright, Worstell, Rice and Axline. In summarizing the season, the play of every one of the the men stood out. "Long Lank" W orstell developed into a mighty fine center during the last part of the season. Ramy Schick was a good guard who al so has a fin e shooting eye, and Hinton and Albright, regulars, with Axline and Rice dese rv e especial mention. Francis was elected honorary captain by hi s mates. A ndr ews rated third team All Ohio and Albright received h onorable mention. Board of Trustees Conducting Survey

A very interesting survey of the Social and Religious life -o f the college is being made ·by a committee composed of Rev. J. Stewart Innerst, Professor J. S. Engle and Professor E. M. Hursh appointed by President ,Clippinger o n r equ es t of the Board of Trustees. The survey is being made through a que sti-onaire to be a nswered ·by all the students. The questions were chosen after the comm ittee had examined. a nu mber of similar lists for other instituti-ons. They are grouped in three divisions: (1) The relation orf the individual to vario us organizatons and agencies; (2) Problems of personal belief; (3) Problems of personal conduct in private, religious• and moral life. The tabulation when completed will be available to any ol'ganization which may desire to use them in planning future activities.

FAIL TO CLICK Baseball Team Having Poor Season Due To Injuries BASEBALL By William Botts The crack outfit that was to represent Otterbein on the diamond, has failed to click together and consequently the Cardinals have not been able to win an encounter as yet. Injuries and a half-heart ed attitude are the reasons given for the failure of the Cardinals to attain the heights that were thought to be present in the material that r eported to hea dcoach, Dr. Edler. Capital Wins Three Capital University seems to be the stumbli ng block of the fallen Cardinals. The Lutherans have taken the measure of the Tan men three times, twice by sco r es of 5-3 and once by the score of 6-3. The other games hav e been with Ohio State, Ohio Nor th ern Ash la nd and Ohio Wesleyan .

TRACK By William Botts The prestige which Otterbein lost in track a few year s back, seems to have been a ll regained with the current issue of th e cinder artists. Not in the last two seasons has the Cardinals dropped a meet, wh ich speaks we ll for the masterful handling of th e thin -clads by Coach Beelman. Soph Stars Two real underclassmen stars were among the candidat es to report. George Bradshaw, an excellent pole vaulter and half miler reported for the 440. The other is Ray Schick, dash man, who runs the century in ten flat. His other race is the 220, which he can run in 22.6. Other sqphomores to answer the call were Tryon a good distance runner; Glover, a weight man; Capehart, pole vaulter; Henry, dash man; >Schott, a javeliner; and Garrett, shot put man. Hal Martin, a junior, is a javeline man. The cinder men have met and defeated Ohio Northern and Kenyon.

TENNIS Captain John Shively and his racquet weilding team mates scored three victories and one tie match against •o nly one defeat thus far this season. Gerald McFeely of Windber, Pennsylvania and George Robinson of Westerville are the only veterans of last year. Shively played in 1930-31. Botts, Barnes, Aggery, Brubaker and Peerless are th e new men this year and are all playing good tennis. The prospects are very bright for a successful season.
