though a ten-minute overtime pe-
riod was played neither team was
able to score another goal.
The best teamwork was done by
Kappa Kappa Gamma, but Alpha
Xi Delta was able to tie them be-
cause of the excellent defense work
of Kathryn McMurray, '31 Ed., Jean
Porter, and Jean Bentley; '33. Jean
Botsford, '33 Ed., also, starred for
Alpha Xi, but because of her speed
she had no support from her team.
Kappa's goal was the result of a
triangular pass: Jane Brooks to
Margaret Eaman to Annette Cum-
mings. Olive Dawes played a good
game on the defense for Kappa.
A strong forward line and team-
work in the backfield marked Kap-
pa as the better organized of the
two teams. Nevertheless, Alpha Xi
did excellent fighting, and manag-

The game, although exciting, was
full of hard and wild hitting of the
puck by both teams. In the second
half Alpha Xi showed a remarkable
spurt, .and during this time made
its goal. The playing after this was
in Alpha Xi's territory with Kappa
Kappa Gamma rushing hard, but
Kappa was not able to break
through Alpha Xi's defense.
The teams will play again tomor-
row to try to break this tie. The
hockey banquet will be held Tues-
day, and at this the winner will
be presented with the silver cup.

Problems of School, Home Life,
Play and Work Observed by
Social Service Heads.
"The Child Health and Protection
Conference," states Miss Dorothy
Ketcham, who is attending the one
which is being held this week at
Washington, D. C., "is concerned
with all problems pertaining to
children-children at home, at
school, at play; children at work;
child race problems, problems con-
cerning the prevention of the
neglect of children. They have
assembled people from agencies,
clubs, and committees to meet to-
gether and study all that they are
doing so that they can form a
basis for the exchange of informa-
tion on everything that relates to
the care of children.
"The first of these conferences
was held in 1909 because Mr. Roose-
velt was asked to see what could
be done in the line of the 'care of
children. Out of this conference
came the principle that children
should not be taken away from
their homes because of poverty.
The home means a great deal to us.
Sometimes they are broken up; but
nevertheless the fact remains that
they are our homes and we are an
intrinsic part of them. As a result
of this principle came the Mother's
Aid relief which has grown as a
standard of child care. Out of that
also came the Children's bureau, a

dren's problems throughout the
country," she said.
"The present conference is muchk
more extensive," Miss Ketcham
stated. "Committees have been at
work all year studying the prob-
lems of children and devising plans
for correcting these problems. Much
will be done at this convention
towards correlating all the infor-
mation brought in by the various
committees and sub-committees,
and towards forming new plans for
the aid of children.
"Of course," said Miss Ketcham,
"our greatest interest in the con-
vention is the effect it will have
on us in Ann Arbor.
