"We have before us a copy of the

BOWLING IS OFF
ON A GOOD START
Bowling which started in the new
field house Wednesday is open to all
students and women members of the
faculty. Anyone who is interested is
urged to come out and play. It is
not necessary to be a good bowler
or even to know the game. There
will always be someone in charge to
teach beginner's.,
There are fonr bowling alleys all
of which will he open Monday, Wed-
nesday, and1 Friday from 4 to ( o'clock.
It has been found necessary to charge
10 cents a string to cover the cost of
pin boys and general upkeep.
No competition will be offered in
bowling until later in the season so
as to give beginners al iopportunity to
learn the game well enough to play
with teamns la 0r. Aitei' spring vaca-

charge of the sport and will prob-

On Wednesday, 20 people bowled at
thr field house. Among them were
several very p~romhising players foi'

nament, all the games in the first
half of the contest have been fin-
ished, and the teams are now well
started in 'the final or elimination
tournament. In the first tournan'ent
or league tournament which ended
last Friday, Feb. 10, the teams were
managed through leagues each of
which were made up o ' four teams.
Each team played three gaines with'-
in its own league, and the rosults
of these games are what decided the
present standiig of the teams in
either the A or B tournament in the
contest that is now taking place.
This elimination tournament which
is made up of the A and B tourna-
imsents began on Monday, and will
problably continue until March 2. The

4 o'clock Monday, Wednesday, and
Friday, and evenings to be decided

ation tournament will be played on
JMarch 2, and there will necessarily
lbe two winners, one fiom the A and
one from the B tournament. Further
details as to when the teams play
and other details will appear later.
The spirit during the whole tour-
i'amnent so far has been encouraging
and shows the interest of the houseF
ir. supporting their teams. The play-
ing during the tournament has beer:
exceptionally high grade and some
v(ry close and exciting matches hav
already been played even though th
tournament is still young.

KAPPA DELTA IS
WINNER OF GAME
Kappa Delta advanced a step near-
er the intramural championship title
yesterday by downing the Phi Sigma
Sigmna team in a listless game by a
58 to '6 score. Jones, forward on the.
winning tear, marked herself as
high point scorer dn the tournament
so far by tallying 39 points.
After piling up a 29 to 3 lead in the
first half, the strong team rushedbin
to almost double their counters be-
fore making substitutions early in
the second period. At this juncture
a shift in the lineup of the Phi Sig-
ma Sigma team. kept their opponents
scoreless for a short time. Hoover
and Peters for the Kappa Delta team
with Jones were offensive stars. Mor-
rison was the most dependable phly-
_ ci for the losers.
