PAGE TEN RED CROSS NEWS President Hoover affd all members of the Hoover family made it a 100 per cent membership in the American Red Cross when they signed the 1933 roster during their recent visit to Palo Alto, California. On learning that the president would be home at the opening of Roll Call Armistice Day, volunteers from the Palo Alto Chapter planned to call upon him to renew his membership. Mrs. Herbert Hoover, Jr., a member of Palo Alto Chapter to whom had fallen the honor of enrolling the pres- ident at the time he was elected four years ago, thought one of the volun- teers in Roll Call service should have the privilege this year. So the honor fell to Mrs. Bailey Willis, captain of Roll Call workers on the Stanford University campus. Mrs. Willis, wife of Professor Bailey Wil- lis, former Stanford faculty member, now retired, not only enrolled Presi- dent and Mrs. Herbert Hoover, but also Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Hoover, Jr., and their three children, and Allan Hoover. The cnrolhncnt also included other members of the presidential .party be- fore their departure from California returniug to Washington, D. C.

CATALINA GOLF "BAWLS" By Robert Davidson The first Annual Catalina Island Athletic Association Golf Touruament got under way early Sunday morning. The tourney is slated to last four Sun- days and is to go over the 64 hole route. The first (lay of play saw the elimination of some of Avalon's most spectacular players. Jack Davis, following the old saying, "The early bird gets the worm," hus- tled Fred Berning, present Avalon City Champion, out before the sun could cast its golden glow over the entire, course, and proceeded to take Fred's nleasure for a complete shel- lacking, to the tune of 3 and 2. The other outstanding defeat of the day was the stopping-of Vincent Petrich, winner of the First Annual Bobby Jones Tournament, by a bundle of stiff competition in the form of none other than that up-and-eonfing golfer, Mr. Austin Shonafelt, with a card of 3 and 1. The most exciting round of the day was that.betweenWilfred Laurin and Yale McWane. Laurin had a 1 hole lead over McWane up to the 18th hole; but Yale came back strong o~1 the 18tl! with a birdie 2 to tie ttie match. A bogey 3 was the best tiaat Laurin could "check up. On the 19th hole, both of the boys were on the green in .three, but Laurin sunk ;t long one tO go down in 4 and taking the match from Yale, who took two putts turning in a 5.

WEIRD POSES OF DANCE DISCLOSED By Emma Reh Science Service Correspondent Oaxaca, Mex., Nov. 19--(S.S.)--Ar- chitectural glories of the old mountain- top city of Monte Alban,,are emerging as Mexican archaeologists push their exploring spades. Uncovering a "dancers' temple", Dr. Alfonso Caso has disclosed a long frieze of figures in weird postures. Looking upon gestures and poses of these dancers preserved for so many centuries, one may think back to the living city of Monte Alban and see flesh-and-blood Indian dancers, per- for:ning gyrations before the stately teml)le. The temples of Monte Alban have been somewhat overshadowed in inter- est by the glittering treasure from Tomb Seven, and the possibilities of other unopened tombs. Excavation of the great ceremonial center of the city is a main objective of the expedi- tion this year. The ceremonial center was laid out in a system of platforms, stairways, temples, and'tombs. Working here last season, the ar- chaeologists unearthed a stairway which is apparently the widest in America. It is nearly 130 feet wide. In the Mexican Indian fashion of building one structure over another, three layers of stairs could be detect- ed. Now, Dr. Caso has found that there was even a fourth stone stair- way buried under the third. Another grand stairway on the east rising from the central plaza has also been unearthed. Exploring the tunnels Which honey- comb the mountain city, Dr. Caso re- ports that another subterranean pas- sage has been penetrated to 50 feet. A mound which has been known as "Tomb Ten" has now been revealed as an earth grave rarher than a tomb. In it are three skeletons, pottery, and idols which suggest to the archaeolo- gist's expert eye the art of TOltec In- dians of Teotihuacan, more than 200 miles away. Monte Alban was a city of the Zapotee Indians. --;O:~ WHERE CREDIT IS DUE By Theodore Roosevelt "It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out lmw the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, and comes short again and again because there is no effort without error and s'hortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devo- tions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and tinfid souls who know neither victory nor defeat." -- "o:-- "Well, Mose, I can give you this di- vorce, but it will cost you $3." "Three dollars, boss?" "That's the fee." "Well, boss, I jes' tell you, I don't believe I wants no divorce.
