FRESHMEN GIRLS ININ
CAPTAIN BALLI3 TOl2
An athletic track meet was held
in the gynasium Friday night, Dec
ember Bth which was well attended
by the students and a small num
ber of spectators from up town.
Unusual interest was taken in this
event and each feature of the pro
gram was hotly contested by the
candidates. The coach of gymnas
tics, Mr. Bonner is to be congrat
ulated for his interesting program.
The program was as follows:
1. Dodge ball elimination con
test, Boys. This was a thriller that
brought many laughs and shrieks
from the audience. The two teams
were rather evenly matched. Soph
omores winning the first and the
Freshies coming from behind with
some great help on the side lines
to win the next two games and to
take the contest.
2. Captain ball contest. Girls
This contest seemed to have three
thrills per minute with girls beau
tifully arrayed in their new gym
suits. And did they play rough.
This was a game for the survival
of the fittest. Anyway the Fresh
men trailing in the score column
finally pulled tile game out of the
fire for a spectacular finish and
won by a score of 13 to 12. (It
must have been “Freshmen Night”
