We Seniors recall hours of pleasure and hours of labor ; we can remember honors, j oys, and victories that have come to us.

We have been forced to make

decisions when there was no one to help us ; we have had to bear di sappointments of which others knew nothing.

All of these things have been more than a prepara颅

If we did not think that we were being better prepared

to go to our l i fe's work, we would not be graduating from this college. Bethany-Peniel College has been of benefit to us along other l ines than that of getting an education from books.

vVe have learned the art of being friendly;

we have learned to accept responsibilities ; we have caught a vision of greater service to mankind. Bethany-Peniel College has taught us o f the good things which come from being a Christian.

We appreciate the faculty members who have shown us by

their lives the worth while things which come from right living.

We have

learned that God comes first at all times, and that success in our lives will largely be due to our attitude toward H im. W e trust that as we pass from these halls to the opportunities beyond, we will have a firmer resolve to uphold the i deals of Bethany-Peniel College as they have been given to us.

The

Arrow Juniors "Once in the dear, dead days beyond recall-", a group o f boys and girls with bewildered faces stood in l i ne before the door o f registrar Overstreet's office. What would happen to them they knew not . for it was their fil'st registration day in Bethany-Peniel College, Septe1llbe" 2, 1928. I t is needless to say that these freshmen were somewhat f rightened, for always before Mother, Dad, big brother or si ster had gone with them on the first day 0 E school and all was well under their protection-but today-. Some of their 1110thers were far away back home, aud at the thought, tears gli stened in many eyes. There came another feeling, h0wever, that now they were grown-ups--almost. and starting to college. Down the l ine, i f one noticed closely, shoulders were tl'aightened, tears were winked away, and some eager ones began to look around Eor the flrst time. ·'Say. boy. where do we go f rom here? I never can remember."' The two boys walked down the hall together. EYidently, they were old students and probably pal s. Down the l i ne traveled a mutual thought, "It wouldn't be so lonesome i f I had a pal-vVel l , why not !" Then and there the tense feeling was released. One handsome young fellow turned around and began a conversation with a pretty but shy young lady. Friends were made rapidly f ro111 then on and the day turned out to be very pleasant a fter all . That group o f timid boys and girls. who stood in that seemingly unending line three years ago, were the begi nni ngs of what is now the Junior class o f B ethany-Peniel College. Since that memorable day we have had our work and our play ; we have met with many new exp�riences and learned many lessons. We have made f riends and we regret to say we have lost some because they are not permitted to be here this year. But with all this we have found time to achieve accompli shments . vVe t h e Junior Class o f ' 3 1 are as different f rom that group of boys and gi rls first mentioned as i E we had never been them at all. Why ? B ecause o f the thl'ee years spent i n our belm'ed col lege. Truly we can say this t ime has not been spent in vain. Three years ! It seems a long time, but think aga111. It has not been so long, a fter all , compared to the long. toilsome road to cli mb before we recei\'e that bit of sheep-skin at the end of our college days. It is worth it, howeyer, j ust to know that next year we will be digni fied SENIO R S . and we hope to be able to fill the place as worthily as those who have gone before us. Nevertheless, the Junior Class has helped to make hi stol'Y for dear old B. P. C. l\lay we ever be loyal and true to her. -So S.

SHELBY lR . WlllLU3

The j oys o f Chri stmas day were abruptly broken for the greater maj ority of the Bethany folk when the sad news that an alumnus and beloved friend had been i nstantly killed by a fast moying train. The accident occurred at Ada, Oklahoma where Mr. vVillis was teaching in the public school system. Mr. Willis was a Christian young man. He had the respect and confidence of all who knew him. He took considerable interest in school act ivities during the four years spent in Bethany- Peniel College. H e edited the college Arrow the last two years in school here. By his Christian living and love for righteous足 ' ness, he contributed much to the moral and social l i fe of the school.

This was his second year with us, and it i s not too much to say that no student o f Bethany足 Peniel has ever been helel in highel- esteem. by Fa::ulty anel fellow students. Al足 though still i n his teens, he carried himsel f as a mature man-steady, thoughtful, conscientious. faith ful. His was one o f those Christian experiences which shine with an unflickering glow.

The

Arrow Sophomores B revity, according to Shakespeare, is t h e soul o f wit. This may be said to apply to the Sophomore class. Though we are smaller by ten than the class of '32, nevertheless we have succeeded in maintaining the honor and high standard held by the class in former years. Not the least of our achievements has be:!n in scholarship, athletics and sportsmanship. The class was organized last September w ith Mr. Gish as president . Mr. Gish i s our director o f athletics, and we are fortunate in having him in our class. Other o f f icers of the class are Glen Jones, vice-president, and Lura Forister, secretary. These officers continued throughout both semesters. The outstanding social event of the first semester was the class party, held the library reading room. Under the di rection of our sponsor, Professor Taylor, we had a very enjoyable time. Needless to say, we also shared i n the Freshman-Upper-classmen fight ; though not completely subduing the Freshmen. we held our own , and the affair was fi nally called a truce . For the second semester, a hike has been planned. 111

<

We are glad to be the class of '33. Though small, we feel that we are contributing our part to the work and advancement of the school . Six of us are in the Glee Clubs : two are members of the College Junior Quartet ; three are in the Dramatic Club ; the staff of our new school paper, the Reveille Echo, contains three Sophomores, and two are on the staff of the ARROW itsel f. We 'are also glad for and proud of B. P . c . , where not only education is stressed. but also Christian character ; we are glad for our four-year accrediting with the State, so that we can gt-aduate and receive OUt- degrees in this school. In our class, we have 1 1 1'. Gish, the di rector o f athletics and Miss Evelyn Harding, the one selling the highest number o f annuals . Our group represents two nations : the United State and Canada. We were fortunate in securing Professor Taylor as sponsor of our class. Taylor has cooperated with us, and has joined enthusiastically in our social affair . ::\l1 r.

Vve feel that we are advancing. This year, we have acquired a little more dignity, a little more prestige. Our bewilderment of facing the more difficult work of college is past ; we are slowly broadening. The struggle for more acquisition of knowledge is sli pping by, and we are applying our knowledge in broader fields. We are facing l i fe more steadily ; the work in the future will not be such a grind as formerly. -L. M . G.

The

Arrow District Assembly The E ighteenth Annual Assembly o f the Western Oklahoma District, Church of the Nazarene, convened in the Church of the Nazarene, Bethany, Oklahoma, with General Superintendent J. W. Goodwin presiding. Dr. Goodwin opened the Assembly with a very inspiring address, in which he expressed deep regret that Dr. Will iams was unable to hold the Assembly as he was seriously ill at that time. Dr. Goodwin was de­ lighted, however, to serve for Dr. Williams and the Assembly responded with expressions of appreciation for set-vices rendered by Dr. Goodwin. W ednesday a fternoon a motion prevailed to send Dr. and M rs. Williams a telegram expressing our sympathy for them during his present i llness, and our heart felt ap­ preciation 0 f them and their work. Among the vi sitors at this time were Mrs. J. W . Goodwin, wi fe 0 f our General Superintendent ; M r . H aldor Lil lena o f Kansas City, Mo. : A . F . Balsmier, Superintendent o f Kansas District ; C. W. Davis o f Color­ ado ; Mark Whitney, Superintendent of Eastern Okla­ homa District. DR. J . '0/ . GOOD W I N Special music was rendered b y Mr. Lillenas. Jack General SUIJerintendent and R uby Carter, Mr. and Mrs. K. S. White and Mrs. Oti s Peck. Friday morning Dist rict Superintendent Hall gave his annual report a fter which he was again elected Superintendent of our great district. B rother Hall has proved himsel f to be a true f riend o f Bethany-Peniel College, and o f the Church, for which we are thank ful. A fter M rs. Hall had been called to the platform and introduced to the Assembly by Dr. Goodwin, B rother Hall very graciously accepted the responsibility , speaking words of kindness and appreciation for the people o f Western Oklahoma District, pledging his faithful services t o t h e people a n d Church. Saturday morning a motion prevailed that the Assembly extend to Dr. and M rs. Williams its appreciation for them, and to express to them the great j oy that was felt because Dr. W illiams was able to return home. This sentiment was beauti fully expressed by a floral offering presented to them by Rev. A. L. Parrott in the name of the Assembly . At n ine-thirty Sunday morning 9-1-7 were present in the Sunday School. At the morni ng preaching hour, our hearts were blessed with a message i n song by a trio, Mr. and Mrs. K . S . White, and Mrs. Oti Peck. Before the hour arrived for the preaching service, all o f the seats were taken and scores o f people were standing. General Superintendent Goodwin brought a very inspiring message on "The Field I s White Unto H arvest. " The hearts of the people were touched and they went away inspi red to do greater things during the coming year. Sunday a fternoon Dr. Goodwin conclucted a very beauti ful bapti smal service at which time nine children were baptized. Fol lowing the baptismal service came a very i mpressive ordination ervice, i n which seven ministers were ordained. One was a Bethany-Peniel student : Chalmette Bordelon . The District Superintendent of the Colorado District, Rev. C. W . Davis, brought the message o f the evening on the "Unpardonable Sin." The altar was fil led with earnest seekers, ancl the Assembly closed with a t ide of spiritual victory. -A. L. TAYLOR.

Li fe is what we make it. We are each responsible for the path 011 which we trayel through li fe, whether it leads us to success or to failure. True uccess is never an accidental achievement. I t takes time and earnest effort to build a great I i fe. Seeds o f thought and patience carefully planted in the heart 0 f tender youth will blossom into loving seryice with the passing years. The quotation, " Li fe's field will yield as we make a harvest of thorns or of flowers, " may well be spoken of college l i fe. Bethany-Peniel College offers students an excellent opportunity for character buildi ng, intellectual deYelopment, and religious t raining in the midst of an ideal social envi ronment. The Freshman Class of 1 93 1 recognized t hese opportunities promptly and determined to make the greatest possible use 0 f them, We have been represented in all of t he many student activities of the campus. We have been represented in the list of (, Straight ' A' Student s." The Gospel Teams, Glee Clubs , Dramatic Club, and l\Iinisterial Association have all felt the strength o f our talent. We have endeavored to do well. that which our hands have found to do. Two i mportant social events were enjoyed dur i ng the school year. In the fall the entire class were delight fully entertained in the Library Reading Room of the Science Building, and in t he early spring we went one Saturday on a hike to Doctor's Lake. We have been glad to have been in B. P. C. this year, and we feel that the t raining we have received within her wal ls will bring forth fruit many- fold in later years, -H . T . 1 9 3 1

Fri . 1 3th, 1 940, A . M. I t i s Friday the thirteenth and dark clouds o f forebodi ng and premonitions of misfortune seem to smother me. _ _ _ ___________

P. 1\1. I t has happened as T expected. My mis fortune has come to pass. I have been run into by one of these " Hit-and-Run" drivers who make the l i fe of the pedestrian very uncertain. It happened in this way : Forewarned i s to be f orearmed-so the saying goes, but in my case it true. When I sta1-ted to work this morning a heavy black mist which was l ike a shroud seemed to smother everything. It made weird and ghostly out of ta1 i buildings. Automobi les, street cars. and vehicles of all sorts emerge as some fantastic spectre f rom the gloom.

I sa fely reached the corner across f rom which my office was located. I started to cross the street. A voice seemed to whisper. " Don 't cross the street.'.' I held back for an instant . shaken by this voice o f woe. Finally I again started across. A sudden terror gripped my heart and I knew no 11100-e. I I found mysel f in a hospital with a white robed nurse standing over me. rubbed m} eyes in bewilderment. I t seemed as i f I were once more in B . P. H . S . The nurse was Edna Yr arie Tate. A door opened and a voice asked. . " I s he conscious?' _______ _ _ _ _ _ .

Edna Marie rep! ied. " Yes. Doctor."

A busy young doctor stepped to my bedside. 0 f all persons-who was thi s ? The young doctor was no other than Charles \"i ill iams. Edna Marie and I b'egan to talk over old times. She told me her sister . Clara Virginia. had married Walter Holt and they l i ved on a farm in Arkansas. We were rudely interrupted by the entrance of a young man trying to sell subscriptions to the Woman's H ome Com足 panion. Again J was dumb founded to find this young man was no other than V i rgil Roane. the president of our class of '3 1 . Virgil stopped f01- a chat. H e said that Dorothy Logsdon had gone o n some kind o f a diet and was now very slender. He also remarked that Edgar Howard was the proud father of six children and was manager o f a sub-station o f the Daily Oklahoman ; also that the great inventor of the . . Sel f- Setti ng" Mouse Trap. of whom we had heard so much lately. was no other than Charles R ice. A woman came into the room and Edna Marie told me that she was the one who had run i nto me. 1 looked towa1-d her. and it was-Vernocia Koons. She said that Kenneth H arper and Sada Beth Gifford were teaching school in B. P. C. I told them that Fletcher McLain was running his father's store i n Bethany. A fter an hour's conversation, a nurse entered the r00111 and said I could go home. A fter all-Fri day the thi1-teenth hasn 't been so bad. -H . H . 1 9 3 1

Arrow Vita l i z i ng Our Visions One o f the most thrilling stories o f modern ti mes i s that of the life and work of Rev. H . F . Schmelzenbach. It was the writer's privilege to hear B rother Schmelzenbach relate his experience and tell. as only he could, the wonderful vision God had given to him of dark A frica and his call to that great continent . Day and night for weeks and m 0 n t h s , B rother Schmelzenbach declared, the vision rel1lained w i t h h i m . Whereyer he went, whatever he did, there seemecl to stand before him millions perishing without God and who with out:;;t retched arms sounded forth the Macedonian cry, " Collie O'l'er alld help liS. "

tepping out enti rely by faith, B r o t h e r Schmelzenhach was soon Livingstone had done so and he vitalized it.

on his way to A f rica to enter fields no white man had ever penetrated before. He was soon to face dangers and endure hardships and to pass through expel'iences that neither the pen nor the tongue of man could tell. That was twenty years ago now ; and eighteen vears later, when the ent i re C h u r c h of the N azarene was shocked by his untimely death, a representati ve 0 f t h e R EV. H. B . r-IACRORY British government said that no 1 1 1 a n s i n c e much for Africa. Brother Schmelzenbach had a vision

One of the greatest needs o f the church and 0 f the people o f God today is VISIon. We 11eed a visioll of oursel' ves. The church is a sleeping giant. Her power i s almost omnipotent because Jesus Christ, the Head o f the church, is omni potent. We need a visioll of our opportullities. Wherever one looks the fields are white unto harvest. Yes, we need vision, a visioH that will stir w e n to actioll-a vision that will 1I0t die.

To me one of the most beauti ful sights I have seen i s that of the rainbow as it wraps itsel f about the shoulders of a dyi ng stOrm. But the rainbow soon fades and dies. Beloved, the tragedy is this : that many visions are like the rainbow. They are beauti ful while they last, but they are soon gone. What has been your experience. 111y friend ? How i s i t with you today ? Has God given to you a vision o f l i fe, its opportunities and its responsibilities ? I s it your determination that by H i s grace you will b e true t o the vision ? How happy the Apostle Paul must have been when standing before Agrippa, a prisoner, in chains, on his way to R ome. and soon to lay down his l i f e for Christ, that he could say, "0 Killg Agrippa, [ was 1I0t disob('diellt ItO the heavenly . . ďż˝ ' IS I O I I .

Along with the evolution of the Piano颅 forte to its present distinctive place as the " I nstrument of the I l11ll1ortals"-came a long line of great M asters.

Like flowers, 111usic is one great C01111110n language the world over, and our beloved pianoforte belongs ali ke to rich and poor, great and humble. In the last decade, the superb teaching profession in its rami fications has made it possible for all classes to appreciate the loveliest in music and to touch the hem of the garment of those whose souls poured fOl路th such wealths of harmony. Could I conj ure words to express 111y love for our own McDowell and my deep delight in the harmonies which surely have their begi nni ng and end in H eaven, I would pen them here. To all those whom I have had the honor to teach in Bethany-Peniel College and to whom I have given my best, I hope I may have brought encouragement and definite desire to seek to achieve the rare distinction of truly artistic Piano forte playing. -J A N ET S.

WHAT I S LIFE ? Such a broad question has more phases than one. To some, it suggests a basketball game that has gone into the second period of overtime with the score tied ; to others a close tennis match ; to others a date with a girl friend ; to others problems i n sociology ; to others an evan颅 gel istic service. Vile each have some one thing in which we are intensely interested. Scarcely a day has passed i n the last year that the t remendous responsibility of editing our year book has not been upon us. And now the book is before you. We hope you will enjoy it.

An audience made up of college students is usually critical, and i f one can merit their approval he should be able to face the world with a greater degree of sel f-confidence. A critical attitude is not necessarily taken toward programs rendered, but the society i always I-eady to offer con­ structive criticism where needed. The programs given contain a variety of numbers. such as readings. scenes, instrumental and vocal solos, quartets, and dormitory orchestras. The society strives to create and maintain school spirit. It not only furn ishes entertainment but furnishes recreation from the regular grind o f school activities.

Girls Gospel Team t

Bethany- Peniel College, being a college holding as her motto " Di l igence, Thoroughness, and Holiness , " should of necessity devote a part of the time to the training of her students in Christian character and Christian se" vice. A high standard of educational requirements necessitates that she confine training for Christian service largely to extra-curricular hours. The Young Women's Gospel Team is an organ ization of coll ege women who have banded together f01' the purpose of training for Christian Sf'rvice. This training i s given by allowing different members to conduct the weekly services and by going out to conduct special sen'ices in the surrounding community. The services held each Thursday are very inspi rational. and hell' materially in rai sing the spiritual tone of the school . One night each week the women o f t h e college can pause in their work, meet together a n d touch t h e Throne, thus gathering new strength and power for the Christian service. The Gospel Team has j ust experienced one of its most successful years. ttendance has increased. and the presence o f the H oly Spi rit has been felt more than ever before. During the revival meeti ngs special prayer-11leetings were held eacb night for the success o f the campaign. The Gospel Team is. without doubt. a vital factor in the development o f spi ritual ity in B . P . C. -\' .

Arrow Men s Gospel Team t

This i s a religious organization which consists o f the Christian young men of our school. It has been an organization for many years. but i t seems that this has been the most successful year o f its history. Each Thursday evening the young men meet for a hal f hour of worship. In addition to this. the members of this organization go out to near-by towns and hold reli gious services. In revivals and evangel i stic meetings they work th1'Ough the congregation and at the altar. Thus the Gospel Team affords the student an opportunity of getting the glory of heaven down upon his soul. This organization also gives the student an opportunity to improve his talents. We are told that one can best learn to sing by singing and best learn to preach by preaching. Experience is a teacher which, although it assigns no lessons, is indispensable in a course of learni ng. Consequently, the student will receive such training in this organization as could not be obtained elsewhere. Through the work of the Gospel Team we haye been abl e to give the people about us an i nsight into our school . \Ve believe thi work to be a great asset to Bethany- Peniel College. Vve earnestly desire to hold up the standard of our beloved institution and to further the cause. of hol iness on earth. -W .

Could eyery minister say with the great apostle, " Now then we are am足 bassadors for Christ," there surely would be more of si ncerity in our ministry. Let the ambassador of Christ catch the vision of the S hepherd suffering for his sheep. The sincere minister will count the cost o f his mini st ry . Christ's legacy to the Christian ministry was not a promise of world fame or recognition. But H e did promise, " Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end !" An ambassador with such a King as his constant companion shall surely win in every country ! In order to be the successful ambassador for Chri st, he should know not only the Ki ng, but the King's M essage. It is God beseeching you through us. The world i s thi rsti ng for a message hom God H imsel f. Their cry i s ever, "Let us hear the still smal l voice, 0 God !" And the Voice answers again, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for us ?" It i s easy to find those who are reconciling people to themselves. But the minist ry of ministry i s to reconcile men to God. What a glorious task ! What governmental ambassador could boast such a mi ssion ? Reconcili ng humanity to its Creator ! I f we would have a fruit ful ministry, we must have more weeping prophets. God has said, " He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again rejoicing, bringing hi sheaves with hill ! . " G o d has called to this ministry those who are willing to pattern their l ives aft er the good Shep足 herd. He gave H i s l i f e for H i s sheep. They will give their lives, also, faith fully standing between the thief and the flock of God. He will keep them f rom being scattered. Yea ; he will weep with them that weep, and rejoice when they rejoice. H i s heart cry will always be : -T. H .

Good playing weather prevailed through the early weeks of school , and baseball enthusiasts were oUl on the diamond regularly. The sophomores of 1 929-30 were school cbamps , and accordingly the soph class of this year was challenged by the freshmen. Captained by Glen Jones, they advanced to meet the onslaught of the hosh club, which was headed by Paul I rick. The worm t urned-and the sophs were hopelessly swamped. I n their next game they were matched with t h e high school nine under t h e leadership of Reuel Parrish, and the proverbial worm kept on in the same d i rection. The next game of the high school showed them to be a strong club, and revealed that their first victory was not an acci dent . When thei r match with the f rosh was past t hey were deci sive victors, the score again being a two-digit number. Other games were played but these were the deciding ones. There was some excellent material i n all the clubs. Parrish, l' kClain . Sullivan and t he H enson brothers were Eigh school stars. For the f rosh I rick, R i dings, Creech, Bundy and Reed were t he mainstays.

Though the players were completely exhausted, one could see a gleam of t ri umph in t he eyes that were drenched with briny perspi ration. The crowd was all but madly wild with the glory of success. While the crowd was hilarious over the greatest feat ever sCOl-ed in a game of tiddly-winks, we were reluctant to predict the outcome of t he team which was to represent our college in the Pee \Vee gol f classic t hat so f requently takes Ii fe due to Q\路er-exert ion. -1'1.

The fal l tournament began with about twenty men trying for the singles title. and with four or five days in which to play off the matches. This made it necessary for the winner to play o ftener than he ordinarily would have i f he waited to reco\'er the energy used up in each match. I rick went through this grind. keep­ ing his head. and not losing his pace. to de feat every opponent. He played with ease-almost nonchalance. Because o f this fact.

a more aggressive. speedy, and brill iant style o f play had been favored above him. The factor o f sel f-control . however, coupled with no mean ability, was the big reason for hi winning. When his opponents were driving their hardest, and showing their best forlll he held steady, turning with apparent case, showing skill in the handling of his racquet. and in the placing of his return dri\'es. The finals o f the singles tournament arri ved with I rick. Bundy and R eed in a three-way tie for the championsh ip. B undy ga\'e I rick a hard battle in the first set , but went down before I rick's steady confident style o f play. R eed. Irick's last opponent also fur n ished a great battle. but was made another \'ictim. -D. R. G .

Tennis Doub l es

T h e doubles teams which entered the tournament were liJ11ited to t h e various classes, and were either chosen by the classes or appointed by one of the officers. The high school was represented by McClain and Harper ; the f reshmen by Theus, Creech, and I rick ; the sophomores by Laeger and Jones ; the j unior-seniors by Garrett and Stahly ; and the faculty by H all and Gish. In the first round the faculty defeated the j unior-senior team, and the high school lost to the f reshmen .

The faculty then lost t o the sophomores i n a close battle, and t h e sophs i n turn were eliminated by the f reshmen, who were accordingly acclaimed school champ颅 lOll S .

None of the doubles teams were as distinctive and outstanding in teamwork as they should have been. Several of the games were interesting because they were hotly contested, and because their outcome was not certain unti l the end. The result came about more by individual talent than by teamwork. Tenni s talent is centered in the freshman class. It remains to be seen whether the other classes can develop players for the spring tournament who can match their abi l ity success fully with the fi rst year men. 1 9 3 1

Arrow Women 's Tennis Doubles The young women did not go in for tennis as enthusiastically as the young men, nor did they get the support of spectators that the men did. In the singles, the sophomores had a genuine champion . Lura Forister easi ly defeated all other contendel's, finding her trongest opposition in the freshman representative, T\Iattie Krey, and in the senior contestant, Verdi Mae Fain. In the doubles, only the freshmen and sophomores were represented, and in their only game, the freshmen, Krey and Walrafen l ost to Forister and Roberts. I t was not an easy victory ; the outcome was in doubt for a considerable portion of the time. A comparatively large number of young women played tenni s, but they seemed to feel elllbarras ed or backward about taking part in tournament play.

More young women would have taken part i f i t had been possible to play mixed doubles, which time ' prohibited.

The 1 93 1 basketball tournament o f B . P . C . came to a thrilling and memor足 able close Saturday February 28, with the final game between the college freshmen and the high school. From the beginning of the season it was evident that un足 less some un foreseen developments took place, these two departments would place the strongest teams in the tournament. The sophomores were not a strong team even after their merger with the upper-classmen. The faculty team hel d its own with all the class quintets, but it did not compete for the prize offered by the school. A fter the smoke of the first few clashes had cleared away, the sophomores were out of the race, the alumni had been eradicated. and t he faculty. high school, and frosh fives were still going strong. In the first high school-ft-eshman game the frosh won 23-27. The second game was a victory fOl- the high school 24-2 1 , and the first game. mentioned above was a f reshman win with a 22- 1 3 score. This game was the climax of the season both from the standpoint 0 f attendance and o f brilliance. Both teams played as i f inspi red and thei r hackers may well be proud of both of them.

Spruce, Stephens, Webber, Fain, Wright, Hounshell. M ore games have been played between the women's teams, and more con­ sistent training has been done, than has been for some years. However, the games that have been played were not officially recorded and counted, since there were always some i neligible players on at least one of the teams which participated. Consequently the games were not recogni zed as decisive, although the teams were representati ve of classes. Undoubtedly t he best all-round player was Loula Taylor. She was fast, aggressive, and a very accurate shot . Her floor work was exceptionally good, and her ability to handle the ball surprisi ng. Mary Neely, Lura Forister, Louvee Garrison, Verdi Mae Fain, and Helene Walrafen were outstanding players and would be fitting teammates for Loula Taylor to compose an all school team. All these players were aggressive and capable. Throughout the school year the time for practice was set at three-five ( 3 :05 ) o'clock daily and there were few afternoons that girls' teams did not claim the floor at this ti me. -D. R.

The

Arrow Field and Track Meet On April 2 a great many athletes were out for the an­ nual honors attached to the numerous events of the track and field meet, held on the college campus. The track meet can be con­ si dered a success f rom every standpoint despite the damp ground and the inclement weather that preceded a few days before and tended to render the conditions a little bit unfavorable at the first. The Comets were again victorious by a score of 81 2-3 points to 76 1 -3 points, mak­ i ng three victories in the last four yeal·s. The crowd was stunned by the total amount of points amassed by Garrison, the Gr sH GARRISON Comet captain. He scored GARRETT 4 8 1 -3 points, followed by Garrett, who scored 27 points. Gish was third in the scoring, and Stahly was fourth. One of the high points of the track meet was the vaulting duel between Gar­ rison and Stahly. The cane was raised until the fellows could not make it, and the fi nal outcome was a tie for first place . A new event that had long been looked for, was added to the meet this year. This contest was the hammer throw, and it seemed to be a popular feat . Venable, a Ranger, from the beauti ful state of Arkansas, won this event by a large margin . Another interesting feature of t h e track meet was t h e running broad-j ump, with Garrison and Stahly again contesting for first place, Garrison winning by a mere three i nches. F. V. Cain, a local merchant, added i nterest to the track meet by giving two crates of apples to be thrown i nto the crowd f rom the roo f of the gymnasium. A prize of one dollar was awarded to the one who got the most apples out of the melee. I rick won the prize with eleven apples. The contest this year was a very close one all through the day. The Rangers started off in the lead only to have the comets overtake them, and then they would again forge ahead and on through the day unti l in the final event, the mile run, the Comets took all three places, and the victory was won. Five new records were established. In the shot-put, runni ng broad-j ump, baseball throw. and pole vault, Garrison beat the records of previous years ; while Garrett beat his own previous record in the j aveli n throw. A large candy sale tended to make the track meet a greater success. We are looking for a big time next year as the enthusiastic competitors plan for a -G. J. record breaking occasion.

Arrow Girls' Events H onors go to the Rangers when it comes to the women's part i n the meet. The gi rls entered in three events this year : t he fi fty yard dash, the relay, and the baseball throw.

Those running were : M ary Scar­ borough, Geneva Dodson, Marilee Roberts, and Louvee Garrison for the Comets ; and Ruby Dal1as, Margaret Armstrong, Lois Serl, and Syble Camp for the R angers. Velma W right, a ranger, threw the baseball the farthest distance. Those entering with her were : Louvee Garrison, Lura Forister. and Stella A rmstrong. -R. N.
