number of press notices which have been received
give proof that it must be good and should prove de-

Synopsis: Jack and his Uncle
are on their way to Treasure Moun-
tain in quest of a treasure. They
find a dead man by a spring who
has been stabbed. Jack's Uncle is
nearly killed by a knife hurled
through the air. It is the same as
the one that was found in the dead
man's back. One of the servants
has just come in with a message
which he said two men gave him to
deliver to Jack.

Students in Professor Verner
W. Crane's American History
Lecture (Tuesday at ten) were
charmed and delighted at the
inspiring lecture on "The Rise
of American Sports." Epeially
choice were the remarks about
Lulu Loomer, the demon wo-
men's walking champion of the
UnitedI Stjtes, and about John
L. Sullivaan, the first boxing
champ. We were hoping Profes-
sor Crane would break down
and give us his predictions as to
pennant possibilities in the
American League for 1932, but
he 0idn't. Too bad, professor,
too bad.

thentic news item written for the
