at 4 o'clock and the sophomore and
senior players practicing at 5 o'clock.
The junior candidates were the first
to show their skill on the floor yes-
terday. Two sixes were picked com-
posed of junior players entirely and
were matched against each other. Al-
though play was ragged, the bas-
keteers displayed exceptional pep and
seemed rested and eager to improve
their gamey
The vacation period put additional
enthusiasm into the senior and fresh-
man team enthusiasts. As a result
the floorwork of the two groups
proved to be much more speedy and
flashes of real teamwork was ex-
hibited. The practice 'session was
mostly devoted to individual exer-
cises on ball passing, jumping and
the technical points of the game be-
fore two teams were matched against
each , other. Cooperative teamwork
was the major weakness of the groups
and much improvement will be neces-
sary in basket shooting and free
throw attempts before close games of
any kind will get under way.
The practices will be held under the
suprevision of Miss Figge and Miss
Campbell of the physical education de-
partment and will be more specialized
as the season advances. According to
Miss Campbell all the players seem
in good physcial condition following
their rest and appear to have a re-
newed vigor as they take the floor.
Much improvement must be made be-
fore any kind of a real game will be
played, Miss Campbell announced, the
players needing to round into form in

Davies Prophesies
Women's Dominance
According to a statement made by
John Langdon Davies, English scien-
tist and writer, in his book "A Short
History of Women," women of the
future will dominate the men.
This prophecy is based on a survey
of the history of woman's place in
society from the earliest days up to
the present and upon actual condi-
tions in America and Russia today.
The American women are finding
themselves amply provided with the
means of discovering that their own
sex is betterseducatedand will con-
tinue the practice of disintellectualiz-
ing men until the latter occupy a very
negligible place in life. Women will
supposedly dominate the arts and lit-
erature and reorganize social insti-
tutions to suit themselves.

College women do not know how

by members of the department of
physical education of the University
of Minnesota, following conferences
with 1,000 freshmen women.
Systematic studying habits were
noticeably lacking among freshmen
living at home. Women living in
