Equal Plane; Farmers Were
Champs Last Time
With two weeks more left before the
first match and with some of the men
shooting 96 out of a possible 100 from
the off-hand position,prospects for the
Rifle club this year look rather good..
Competition among the contestants
for berths on the team is growing very
keen and some sort of a trial match
will be necessary to decide who's who.
Captain Schoepfle expects to have
the men line up against each other
the latter part of next week, and a
tentative team will be chosen from
among those who turn in the best
Last year the rifle team won the
championship of class "B" and as a
result will automatically compete in
Class "A" this year. M. A. C. reg-
istered a large number of perfect
scores in this class last year and won
the championship very handily. The
W lverines have nothing to fear from
tli Farmers this year since the re-
cent change in the rules calling for 10
shots standing and 10 more from prone
places both teams on an equal basis.
Last year all 20 chances were from the
prone position. A recent report from
the National Rifle association's head-
quarters states that the size of the
bull's eye has been reduced.
Since the inauguration of the mem-
bership campaign a large number of
names have been added to the already
large list of members.

As the coach dented a pair of boards
on the side wall of the gym, the three
were off. Before Eddie had gone ten
yards, Obie and Le were way off. As
the first mentioned neared the 20-yard

DARTMOUTH WITHDRAWS FROM
NEW ENGLAND ASSOCIATION
Decide to Take Step at Mass Meeting
After Considering All
Hanover, N. H., Jan. 13.-At a mass
meeting of the students in College hall
it was decided by the athletic council
that they with the sanction and con-
sent of the student body should resign
from the New England Intercollegiate
This action has been taken by the
council only after long consideration
of the fact that Dartmouth has become
too strong for the best interests of the
association. In as much as it has al-
ways been the athletic council's aim
to work to this end the members did
not hesitate to bring this matter be-
fore their students as is provided for
by the constitution.
Prof. C. E. Bolser, president of the
council, addressing the students, told
them of the decision of the council and
explained to them that this stand was
taken only after a thorough considera-
tion of what it meant to Dartmouth as
well as what it toathetassociation.

In advancing the date of this famous mid-Winter Event from February to
January we were influenced by a number of important considerations. Chief
among them was our desire to offer unusual inducements to fraternities and
clubs who regularly contribute a large share of our furniture business during
these weeks preceding the Junior Hop season.
So instead of quoting discounts at a time when there is comparatively little
interest in things of the sort, we have unexpectedly announced sweeping re-
ductions on everything in the magnificent furniture collection, besides consider-
able portions of the rug and drapery stocks.
Here you will find large representative assortments of Karpen overstuffed
chairs, rockers and davenports; art craft pieces from Stickley Brothers,, reed
and fibre chairs for sun porches and smoking rooms, handsome library tables
of oak or mahogany, and all the exquisite pieces needed for reception rooms
All these and thousands more you will find here in greatest varieties. The
woods are true, the designs correct and the qualities dependably high.
Fraternities, house clubs and private home owners are invited to inspect
