was in residence here as a Barbour
scholar from September 1926, to July
1927, when she returned to China. She
has written to Miss Grace Richards,

a. score of 910. It was a fair game
with good team work on both sides.
The fastest game of the season so far
was played at 5 o'clock in which Kap-
pa Delta defeated Alpha Epsilon Phi
by a score of d-3. The ball was on
both sides of the field in real see-saw
fashion. Both teams were evenly
matched and not for one moment did
the interest lag either for the watch-
ers or for-the players. Members of
both teams were alert and quick.

Golf Classes Will
See Films Of Jones
Moving pictures of Bobby Jones,
holder of the British Open and Amer-
ican Amateur golf championships, are
being shown to golf classes this week
in Barbour gymnasium. It is thought
that in all sports much can be learned
by seeing a good player in action. If
this golf experiment proves fruitful,
Miss Ethel McCormick, assistant di-
rector of physical education, intends,
through the courtesy of Calkins and
Fletcher, local druggists, to introduce
moving pictures in other sports.
At 8 o'clock and at 9 o'clock today
two films of the champion will be run.

fith, chairman of the finance commit-
tee, is launching an intensive drive to
collect a dollar from every sophomore
woman on campus to cover the ex-
penses of the annual party to be given
by the sophomores for the freshmen
on October 28. A booth has been set
up in the Barbour gymnasium and all
sophomore women are expected to pay
the fee as they enter the building. The
campaign will continue until Tuesday,
October 25, and in this time the total
amount must be collected. The mem-
bers of the. finance committee have
been assigned beats in order to col-
lect from the girls who are unable to
be reached otherwise. By working in-
tensively for the next five days Dor-
othy Griffith hopes to get the whole
amount into the hands of the treas-
urer, that the other committees may
begin their work in earnest.
Margaret Babcock, chairman of the
spread, is stressing the surprise party
idea, which the committee believes
will prove very successful.

minimum facts in regard to their fam-

The fourth group includes those
children who are placed out in homes
on trial and under active supervision.
The homes are visited at least four
times a year until legal adoption. The
visit is not a superficial one, and the
report sent in covers a wide variety
of phases of the child's life and the
home. Practical results have justified
this policy. The children are put only
into homes into which it is thought
they will fit, attention being paid to
the life of the possible parents and
the tendencies of the child. IfI the
childis above infancy this is a serious
problem as its readjustments to the
new home and environment present
many difficulties. Thus, experienced
and sympathetic visitors are often
able to turn doubtful and discourag-
ing situations into ultimate success.
