By Henry Smith Women who comsistantiy remove their shoes while relaxing in the movies or at the dinner table may well learn a lesson from'Pat Goodrich. It seems that young lady removed her shoes to rest her feet while eating in the cafeteria recently. During her conversation with others at the table she failed to notice the culprit who quietly sneaked the pedal covers away. A few minutes later Pat started feeling with her feet. Where, oh where, could her little shoes have gone? To make a long story short, they were served to her on a tray. Moral—He who lives in a glass house should undress in the dark. Speaking or undressing reminds one of the regular Friday afternoon volleyball sessions of the male members of the faculty. It is in these sessions that the profs let down their hair, and figures too, and go to a lively afternoon of slammin* the game along. The games include such notables as George "Slugger" Nelson, Norvall "Sock 'em" Bovee, E. c. "Smash 'em" Beck, Judson "Show- me-a-point-I-caii't - make" Foust, Lester "Keep 'em Flying" Serier, Cleon "Another-point-for-our-side" Richtmeyer, Walter "Quiet - but- powerful" Ryder, George "Official Scorer — for-the-other-side" Lauer, George "Skyward bound" Depuy, Robert "Hey, that's our point" Campbell, and Jesse "Important Cog" Thorpe. Since it is possible that the editor may be in the army next semester he is taking a week's vacation to allow his assistant to get the "hang of things." This week's paper was edited by Kathryn Wirth, managing editor. Life urges all Central girls who have a few moments to spare to attend the Keeler Union writing bee on December 1. The program is sponsored by the Union and needs the 100 per cent cooperation of 300. Central girls. Spare an hour, girls, and make a soldier happy. See the editorial on this page for further particulars. Incidentally, the editorial was written by Mrs. Norvall C. Bovee. From Life to Life goes the name of Pvt. Bill Sfexton..

Represented at the tournament besides Central were: Capitol University; Findlay College; Toledo University; University of Detroit; John Carroll College; Bowling Green University; Marietta College, and Denison University. The debate proposition was: Resolved: that the United Nations should establish a federal union with the power to tax and regulate commerce, to settle international disputes' and to enforce such settlements, to maintain a police force and to provide for admission of other nations which accept the principles of the union. Jean Cooper, Jackson junior; Virginia Palmer, Chesaning sophomore, and Eleanor Philp, Bad Axe freshman, the affirmative team, won debates from the University of Detroit and Toledo University. They lost to Findlay College, Capitol University, and Bowling Green University. Bette Baldwin, Vassar sophomore, and Arlihe Laage, Grayling junior, the negative team, won debates from Toledo University, Capitol University, and Marietta College. They lost to Bowling Green University and the University of Detroit. With the exception of Cooper, this was' the first experience in college debate competition for the members of the teams. Dr. Eugene C. Chenoweth, assistant professor of speech, accompanied the teams on the trip. By Kay Campbell Symbol of the faith Central Michigan College students and faculty place in the future is the Victory Loan Fund Service Flag which will be hung in Warriner hall following the Thanksgiving holiday. The flag, which is being made of red, white, and blue stamps, will hang in the corrider between the offices ' of the president and the dean of women. Delay of hanging is due to failure of ;he stamps to return from the printers'. It is the aim of the fund to raise $3750 by the end of this college year with which to purchase government bonds and create a loan fund available to- students who are now in the service and who return to Central after the war. The flag, 16 feet long and 10 feet wide is being made of white stamps with a red stamp border and has blue stars. Tau Upsilon made the first contribution when they turned over their prize money won in the Homecoming- parade. Dr. Ernest J. Merrill, assistant chemistry professor, contributed the first star in the name of John C. Ellis, High land Park chemistry major who' graduated in 1939. > Money turned in to date totals^ about $200. Red stamps cost 10 cents each, white stamps 25 cents and the blue stars in honor of a soldier $2.50. Stamps are being^ added to the flag as quickly as they are purchased by the students and faculty. It is' requested that everyone pay his pledged amount before leaving for the Thanksgiving vacation. The Rev. C. W. Mackenzie and the Rev. James Peters were speakers at the Y.W.C.A. meeting in Sloan hall last night. At the November 17 meeting the Reverend Moreno of Shepherd gave a talk on Mexico.
