Pillow Fight, Cane Spree, And Flag
Rush Colnprse Events
On Program
Freshmen, daubed in the traditional
green paint of their class, will meet
the red-besmeared sophomores in the
annual underclass Fall games at 10
o'clock this morning on south Ferry
field. Both classes will meet at 9
o'clock, the freshmen in front of the
Union and the sophomores at Water-
man gymnasium.
Edward N. George, '28E, will lead
the second year men into the fray
and George E. Rich, '29, will captain
the yearlings. With the aid of lieu-
tenants, who have already been ap-
pointed, they will start their men on
the march to Ferry field at 9:30
o'clock, and the games will start
promptly at 10 o'clock, according to
Earl Blaser, '27, chairman of the Fall
games committee of the Student coun-
cil, who will direct the combat.
TIree Events Carded
There will be three events on the
program, the pillow fight, which will
count two points; the cane spree,
counting one point; and the flag rush
which will be worth two points to
the victors. The class gaining a ma-
jority of the total of five points will
win the games. I
Picked teams of nine men each will
represent their classes in the pillow
eight. The event will be run off in
three heats, with three individual
fight. in each heat. The winner of
two or more of these individual
battles will win the heat, and the
winner of at least two of the three
heats will receive the two points.In
the cane spree ten men from eac h
class meet, and the class having the
majority of the canes in its possession
after the time allowed by the council
has elapsed, will receive one point.
In this event the two captains meet.
In the last event, the flag rush, all
members of both classes participate.
There will be three poles, 26 feet high
and 30 feet apart, on which- will be1
mounted green flags of the freshman1
class. The sophomores will be given
two 15 minute periods, separated by
ten minutes of rest, in which to cap- I
ture the flags. If they accomplish it,
'28 receives two more points; if the
freshmen successfully defend the
poles, '29 gets two points.
Bands representing both classes
will parade on the field of battle be-
fore the games start. The freshmar
band has been practicing for weeks; +
the sophomore band was organized
after the class meeting Thursday.{
Officials Meet
The games will be conducted by
the Student council, asssisted by
members of the "M" club, junior hon- i
orary societies, and the sub-committee '
of the council. All these men, who
will act as officials, will meet at 8:30
o'clock this morning at the offices of
the council on the third floor of the
Union, where they will receive in-
structions and be given their official

Buried Miners
Force Way Out
After 11 Hours
(By Associated Press)
TRENTON, Mo., Nov. 13.-Seven
miners early tonight dug their way to
freedom after having been entombed
for 11 hours more than 200 feet under-
ground by a cave-in of the shaft of
the Trenton coal mine.
They were none the worse for their
experience. They had taken food into
the mine with them and there was
ample air supply.
Rescue workers, who had dug fever-
ishly at the fallen earth and rock
shutting the men in, heard the click
of shovels on the other side of the
barrier late today. Soon the entomb-
ed minners tunnelled through to the
open passage.

(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 13.-The Mit-
chell court martial refused today to
strike out the testimony of Mrs. Mar-
garet Ross Lansdowne or to hear out
of order Capt. Paul Foley, judge ad-
vocate of the Shenandoah navy court
of inquiry, in reply to her charge that
he had sought to influence her testi-
mony in the statement she was to
make before the naval court.
Col. Sherman Moreland, chief of the
Mitchell prosecution, moved to elimi-
nate from the records the statement
of the widow of the commanding offi-
cer of the Shenandoah on the ground
that it related to facts developed sub-
sequent to the offense cited against
Colonel Mitchell in the charges of
conduct prejudicial to military dis-
cipline. His motion was overruled.
Advised of this development, which
took place when the court first opened
its sessions, Captain Foley appeared
an hour or so later with a request
that, as a matter of "personal privi-
lege and fair play", he be allowed to
take the stand to reply to Mrs. Lans-
downe's statement of yesterday. De-
fense counsel objected on the ground
that rebuttal testimony was out of
order since it would come in the midst
of the presentation of the defense.
This view was sustained by the court.
