From the sophomore, junior, and
senior members of the unit 28 men
have listed themselves as candidates
for the team. From the freshmen, 20
men will be chosen from the highest
scores turned in by the new men. In
order to equalize the period of train-
ing to a certain extent, these men
will not be picked until their entire
class has completed the course in rifle
markmanship, which is one of the re-
quisites of freshman R.O.T.C. work.
The results of this course, Capt.
Hardy stated, will provide an index
as to the comparative abilities of the
men engaged in firing. Scores fired
during the week of Dec. 10 will count
as a record forming the qualifica-
tion necessary to tryout for the rifle
The 20 men with highest scores that
week will be excused from rifle mark-

Four little children, ranging in age from four months to five years, were burned to death when an oil stove
exploded in their home at Inkster, Mich., a Detroit suburb. The father, Gus Wendt, and the mother were out
of the house when the fire occurred. Above are shown the remains of the small frame house.

The advertisement calls it "avast.

nail was hit on the head, and although
the promoters would have us think
this leads to something swell, there is
nothing more to it. "The Scarlet Em-
press" can boast of no praiseworthy
acting, no plot of any satisfactory in-
terest, no historic significance, and
above all nto honest-to-goodness
drama. However, the exploitation of
Marlene Dietrich is well achieved by
the famous Von Sternberg, and the
super-magnificent pageantry is about
the most extreme and most profuse

What plot there is is based on the
diary of Catherine II of Russia. It
tells the story of how she is taken as
a young, innocent girl to become the
bride of the half-wit heir to the Rus-
sian throne, and how she grows up in
the court, learning the tricks of am-
bitious women. She stalks up the lad-
der of success and eventually finds
herself at the top, followed by the
Russian army, a la Joan of Arc. There
are only one or two moments in this
plot that produce genuine enjoy-
ment, and those moments rely chief-
ly on the Dietrich sex appeal.
Explanatory sub-titles are used
freely to get the plot in motion, and
whenever it falls flat, another one
is stuck in to pick it up. There is one
scene after another showing the bar-
baric splendor of the Russian court,
the extremities to which the 'royal

"Best-dressed" seniors at America's lead-
ing colleges are definitely against the clumsy
old-fashioned fly. Though they prefer the
smooth flat slide-fastened fly, they are also
opposed to the uncovered zipper which dis-
plays a strip of bare metal. Kover-Zip, the
invisible seamline closure demanded by
good taste, has won approval in colleges
from coast to coast. Here are a few typical
comments on Kover-Zip by college men
selected as "best-dressed":
