Veteran Basketball Squad Opens with Normal Tuesday Central's varsity basketball team, heavily fortified with veterans from last year's wbaning squad, opens a 16 game schedule Tuesday with a home engagement against Michigan Normal. Starting time is 7:30 p.m. The campaign will continue in full swing following ihe Normal game, as the Chips face Soo Tech. December 1. and Western Michigan's Broncos, Saturday, December 10. Both are home games. Coach Danny Rose has a likely starting lineup of Captain John Parfitt and Jack Scott at the guards, Al Barnett at center, and Lyle McDonnell and Jim Doyle at forwards. These performers were largely responsible for Central's 15-1 record last season, which surpassed all other collegiate quintets in the nation from the standpoint of games lost. The Chips defeated Normal twice last year by scores of 60-43 and 68-58, but this contest figures to be no set up as the Hurons are improved and rate as one of Central's toughest rivals through the years. The freshman squad opens its season against Art's Cleaners of Midland in a preliminary to the Soo Tech game. The frosh also tangle with Western's freshmen here December 10.

Special Edition This is a special edition of LIFE. Generally there is no edition of the paper immediately following a vacation, but the editors feel that this is the time when the paper is most needed. Since most pf the material had to be written at least a week in advance the paper does not contain complete campus coverage. The editors have endeavored to pick out the articles which they feel must appear at this time, but they have been limited by lack of space.

Bagwell's topic will be "Learning to Live Together." Bagwell was national president of the Junior Chamber of Commerce last year and in 1946 was president of the Michigan Junior Chamber of Commerce.

The president has told the Senate to submit a plan which can be taken up by the Faculty Senate.
