TENNIS TOURNAMENT The tournament will be conducted under the double-defeat system, that is no player can be eliminated until he shall have been twice defeated. Thus there will be no eliminations during the first round of play. No player shall be required to play the same opponent twice until he shall have met all other contestants. Players must have their match com- pleted by the evening of the date set, unless the committee shall give definate permission to change the playing schedule. On the dates set under their names those players have first call on the courts. Players may, however, play their matches as long before hand as they wish, starting November 1st. A player failing to appear for his match or to make arrangements for its change, shall be considered as having forfeited his match, and it shall stand as one defeat against him. No one but officials and players are allowed on the courts during the time of tournament play. If any official is unable to act on the date scheduled be should report to the committee, and either the committee or the interested players may select another official to act. The decision of an official is *final, and players are to accept it without discussion. All score sheets are to be handed to Mr. Robinson immediately after the match. There will be a separate draw for each round of the tournament. The same regulations will apply to the Junior High Tournament except that it shall not be double elimination, and will start on November 17th. The draw for the first round is as follows : First Round Draw, Seniors November 3--Grace Tregarthen and Edith Stone; Gordon Coleman and Bob Garcia. November 4--Mary Gibson and Catherine MacKay; Walter Coffey and John Shields. November 5-Patsy Lee and Blanche Runnels; George Minney and Edward Feltrop.

ARTHUR MAKES DISCOVERY Arthur G. has grown two inches--so we hear. He told us so himself, when he discovered he was taller than any one of his fellow students. Here is Arthur's receipt--"Eat eggs." Honestly, folks, Arthur is serious about it. Jail Prisoner Forgotten. After being held in Schenectady county (N. Y.) Jail more than three months, a prisoner was set free. Ofll- elals were unable to determine why the man was a prisoner. Police roe- ords, however, showed that he had been arresteu on a charge of robbery and was sent to Jail to await action of the grand Jury. Since that time the man had been forgotten, it was said, because no records eoneerntng him were found in any of the various county departments. Orders Hard to Carry OuL An order-in-council authorizes Uon- don policemen to confiscate the license of an aviator "suspected of being un- der either the influence of liquor or drugs." The satellites of Justice are wondering Just how enforcement of the law Is to be carried out in the event of non-compliance with orders to deliver. The London "Bobby" is considered one of the best, but to stop an airplane is certainly quite a task even for him. . WHAT MAKES 'EM ATTRACTIVE "is the an attractive wldowF' "1 don't know.

Usual Fate of Peacemaker, A young woman who tried to stop a fight between a (log and a cat in a baekyard In Louisville, Ky., was at- tacked by both animals. She was bit- ten on the hand by the dog, while the eat sprang on her shoulder and clawed her arm. Subscribe now--S2 per year. HISTORY History is an important department of work in high school. Its four main divisions are Ancient, Medieval, Mod- ern and American. Ancient history is taken during eith- er the Freshman or Sophomore year, as it is the first department taught. It's chief aim is to show the earliest known beginnings of civilization; to show its progress stage by stage, and how slowly this development took place. This history works up from the pro historic age to Greek and Roman civ- ilization. At that point it is carried into the Medieval and Modern period. The study of this new period com- prises the second division of work. Its aim is to show the progress of civili- zation and its advancement by the dif- ferent peoples up until the present day. Neither of these classes .are in session this year. World history, however is being taught. It gives a general out- line of the progress of civilization, dealing both with ancient and Medie- val and modern periods. Those who take it do not need the other two years of history, because both cover the same space of time. American history is opened only for juniors and seniors, and is a required subject for graduation. Its chief aim is, of course, to give a complete out- line of American history and the pro- gress of the people. '/'he first semest- er's work deals entirely with history, while the last semester is devoted to the study of civics. CHEWING GUM BIG INDUSTRY IN THE UNITED STATES Movie fans of the world---and others who like to give their jaws exercise-- chewed enough gum last year, says a. Washington dispatch, "if each stick were placed end to end, to circle the earth 210 times." This bit of figuring by John D. Shea, an expert statistiean, was based on the announcement of the Department of Commemcc that chewing gum worth $40,324,409 was manufactured in the United States in 1923. "And further," said Shea, "assuming that each of the 1.20,000,000,000 sticks, estimated as the production on the- basis of the department valuation, was- chewed for a half hour, we have 372,- 000 billion jaw motions for consump- tion of the year's output. We figure each stick is masticated at the rate of 104 crunches per minute." That chewing gum is profitable to manufacture was shown by the depart- ment's figures for the year. Salaries and wages to the 2,554 persons em- ployed in its manufacture in forty-five plants amounted to $3,173,736. The costs of all materials, including fuel and containers, was $15,487,188. The difference in the producing cost and the value, listed under the caption, "value added by manufacture," was $25,383,726.
