So far this year Jim Tarleton has not lost a gamp in football or bas- ketball and if they are able to go through an unbeaten baseball season a most enviable record will have' been established by the freshman teams.

All the long day he has not been able to concentrate his mind upon his studies. The once delightful Calculus had become distasteful. Nothing interested him.
