Hadley Smith, '40, chairman, an-
nounced yesterday.
The handsare previously made up
so that every team plays the same
hand during the evening, thus elim-1
inating luck, which is often a deciding!
factor, and introducing a real chal-
lenge and test of skill to card players,
Smith said. n
Another factor in the tournament!
is the elimination of unequal playing
opposition which is called the Double
Howell Movement. The teams en-:
tered in the contest are moved aftert
every two hands, Smith pointed out,
and thus no team will.have easier or
tougher opponents than the other.
The result of this scheme is that!
at the end of the tournament every
team will have played with every,
other team, and will also have played
the same hand.

Financial Facilities for the Faculty
The law of demand and supply has never been
repealed, and even a college professor may find it
hard to make both ends meet. That is the time to get
a Personal loan-any amount up to $300. No co-
signers. No embarrassing credit inquiries. No
security of the kind usually required elsewhere. The
only requirement is the ability to repay in small
monthly payments.

11937, that an English officer told his I
dinner guests that there was no possi-
bility of Japanese attack on Tient-;
- Early the next morning two Ameri-
, can girls, Trenetta and Frances Fox,
s left the British Concession for a swim
at a near-by club. They found the
club deserted and a hole blasted in
the roof. An accident, of course. That
Japanese bomb had been aimed at a
point a mile and a half distant. Say
the Misses Fox, daughters of an;
American officer stationed in Tient-
sin at the time, "A mighty poor shot."
Bombs Destroy University
Nan Kai University, one of the
largest universities in China and situ-
ated only a few blocks from the Fox
home, was bombed the same day.
Strangely enough, these two girls, now
juniors at the University, maintain
that they felt no fear though they
could hear the noise of bombs falling
in other parts of the city. The Brit-
ish Concession, a two-mile square dis-
trict of neutral foreigners, was sup-

ventures of our stay in China came
a few days following the attack,"
Trenetta Fox said. "Several couples
decided to do a little exploring in a
railroad station which had been com-
pletely demolished. It was rather a
gory picture with an occasional leg,
still booted, appearing among thet
debris, or an arm with clenched fist
protruding from a pile of bricks. The
sudden appearance of a Japanese
soldier, with bayonet lowered, was the1
most startling, however. He permit-t
W.A.A. Creates
New Position
To Pick Bowling Manager
From Among Petitioners
Petitioning for a bowling manager,
will be held today through Wed-!
nesday at the Women's Athletic build-
ing, Norma Curtis, '39, W.A.A. presi-
dent, announced yesterday.
Because there has been a great in-
crease in interest in bowling in the
past five years, Miss Curtis said, it has
been decided by the W.A.A. board
that a bowling manager should be
chosen. This manager will have
,charge of bowling for individual tour-
naments and intramural tourna-
ments and may form a club if she
desires. She will also become a mem-
ber of the W.A.A. board.
Anyone interested in the office may
secure a petition today through Wed-
nesday at the desk of the Women's
Athletic Building and may leave her'
petition at the desk. The manager
will be chosen from those who peti-
tion by the W.A.A. executive board.
Two new members have recently
been added to the W.A.A. board, Miss
Curtis announced. Sally Corcoran,
'4lEd, is an assistant intramural man-
ager in charge of zones and Clara
Lenfestey, '41Ed, has been appointed
rthe new swimming manager.
