hurdle leapings . In this race there w ere over 10 0 freshmen who toed the line at the crack of the gun. The inside dope was: Take the lead, and th e R. I. State "Frosh" team pro ceeded to follow out instructions. For the first half mile the State yearlings set the pace a nd appeared in go od shape · to gather in the laurels. But this lead was lost w hen the Rhode Island boys too k the wrong r oad and lost their good start, and, a s every hill and daler k nows , it is next to i m possib le to regain a lost le ad . Even so the R. I. 1929 lads m a naged to co me thru with a fourth place. The positio ns. ,in which the yearlings of the State finished was as follows: S. :NJwcom~r, 4th; ' H. Miner, 12th; D. Fine, 18th; S. Szulik, 22nd; W. Fleming, 30th; E . Pykosz, 31st; J. Willard, 41st. This is a very good showing when we consid er that the fresh men h ad only one meet this year in which they could get some experience with competition. The t eams enter<Eld in t he freshman run wei·e as follows in order of points: M. I. T., U. of Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island State, Bates, Williams, Holy •Cross, Tufts, Brown. Immediately after the Freshman •meet, the call came for the varsity to report and over 150 athletes, the -cream of New England's hill and dal ·ers, romped on the field. At the start, our good old "Bob" Strong took the lead and held it f or the first two m iles, but he was forced give up the pace-making. The . . . . vars ity course IS over ·five miles long ,and is much more difficult than our -own co-urse, so that the result of the R. I. · team is a cause for optimism.

According to college tests, man develops one-eighth horsepower for short periods and one-twentieth in steady work. As a craftsman-a worker who uses brains-he is well worth his daily wage. But as a common laborer, matching brawn against motorized power, he is an expepsive luxury.

With a fi:fty~horsepower rpotor, for instance, one "' man can do the work of 400 common laborers. He is paid far more for his brtlims than his brawn. The great need of this and future generations is for men who can plan and direct. There is ample motorized machinery for all requirements of productionand constructi.o n. Butmotoriz.e d machinery, no matter how ingenious, can never plan for itself. And that is precisely where the college man comes m. Highly trained brains are needed more and more to think, plan, and direct tasks for the never~ending application of brawn~saving · electricity. 32-2DH
