over the walls and cover the floors
of the basement, are genuine Chi-
nese ones, each made completely b:
hand. It takes four men, working
10 hours a day, from four to six
weeks to make a 9x12 foot rug.
This widespread importation be-
gan in 1918 when Professor Mer-
rick was sentto North China to aid
in flood-control work.C
Looms Operate in Tientsin.
The next year Mrs. Merrick and
her two daughters joined him there
and made their home in Tientsin
which is the largest commercial
city in North China and the center
of the rugmaking industry. While
she was living there, from 1919 to
1922, Mrs. Merrick, aside from col-
lecting many art treasures, had
several Chinese rugs made for her-
self. When she returned home, her
friends were so interested in the
rugs that she offered to order for
them. Their fame has spread in
this way to all parts of the country.
Mrs. Merrick, since the death of her
husband, carries on the work withE
her daughters' help.
Shot Guns Tally Touchdowns
A new feature will be employed
at all the Carleton College football'
games this year. Five students'
with' a captain will fire volleys{
from sawed-off shot guns when-
ever touchdowns are made.

Since the opening last fall of the
tennis courts at the W. A. A. build-
ing, tennis has become one of the
most popular sports on campus. Thc
first tangible evidence of the new
interest in this sport was the In-
tramural tournament held last
C spring. The entries for this compe-
tition were so numerous that it
was impossible to finish it all last
semester. A determined effort is
being made to complete the unfin-
ished sets now.
Another land-mark of the tennis
season last year was the Play Day
held here. Many of the Highland
Manor girls visited the field house,
t where a very successful tennis com-
petition and tea was held. "The
purpose of such meetings is to fos-
ter good will and sportsmanship,"
says Miss Dorothy Colby, of the
I Physical Education department,
who is in charge of tennis. It is
hoped that similar Play Days will
be planned for the future.
The season is now under way
with a general tournament open to
everyone. The lists are already
posted at the W. A. A. building. The
first round should be played off by
the end of the week. Each player
is asked to co-operate in accom-
! plishing this by seeing that her
own telephone number is posted be-
sides her name.
