The plans for the interclass
games which are to open the Basket Ball season have finally been
formed with four teams, representing the Junior-Senior, Sophomore, Freshmen and Academy
The plan suggested by the Gold
" Q " club for this year's preseason games, which were finally
adopted, were voted down at the
first Athletic Association meeting, and a committee was appointed consisting of Manager
Howard Elliott, Frank Colcord
and Alfred Haworth to decide
upon some division of men so
that the greatest number could
plan and spirit be aroused. As
this committee was unable to
come to any agreement, it was
referred back to the Athletic Association. After each member
of the committee had explained
his plan, by voting it was decided
to carry out the original plan of
four class teams.
The following schedule was
drawn up by the council, the
games starting Wednesday, November 21, and two teams playing each evening at 4:20:
WEDNDSDAY, NOVEMBER 21.
Sophomore vs. Academy.
Junior-Senior vs. Freshmen.
The Musical Arts Quartet appeared at Wood-Mar Hall last
Thursday evening as the first
nnmber of the 1917-1918 Lyceum
course. The auditorium was well
filled and Mr. Woodward, manager of the course, spoke his appreciation of the way in which
the people of Newberg patronized the entertainment.
The Quartet had several numbers of patriotic and national
trend, the program being opened
by the selection, "Tenting on the
Old Camp Grounds," sung behind
the scenes. The numbers were
well chosen and the encores always ready and full of fun. Mr.
Baker sang some tenor solos, the
aecond one, "Little Pink Rose,"
being especially well rendered.
The base solos, "Toreador's Love
Song" and "Roll On, Thou Deep
and Dark Blue Ocean," were appreciated very much by the audience.
The Quartet also sang those
two pieces so popular at present,
"Keep the Home Fires Burning"
and "The Long, Long Trail."
The pianologues given b y Mr.
Tosch were new to Newberg audiences and given with a zest
which was enjoyed.
The drive for money for the
Y.M.C.A. was a big success and
the students of Pacific raised
more than twice their quota. The
drive, which took place last Tuesday, was aided by both John
Rudd, student Y. M. secretary,
and Rev. D. A. Tompson of the
Mispah Presbyterian church in
Portland. The exact amount
raised in the two hours after
chapel was three hundred seventynine dollars and five cents.
The campaign was started some
weeks ago when several of the
students were at the meetings in
Portland addressed by Whitehair
and Bartholomew and where there
was a conference of students on
the drive. The cabinets of both
the Y. M. and Y. W. have been
planning the work ever since and
each move was laid out beforehand. The different teams were
chosen and the school divided up

difficulty in arranging games
with most of the colleges playing.
From the time the first couple
arrived until the last candle went
out, faculty and student body enjoyed themselves at the annual
Hallowe'en party in Kanyon Hall.
As every boy was supposed to
take a girl, a lottery system was
used by which every one might
draw a slip with a girl's name
written thereon and who he was
supposed to take. This plan
turned out very successful, as
was shown by the number of
After choosing sides, a very interesting game was played by
which it was proven that girls
are better shots when throwing a
ball into a hollow jpumpt in than
boys. When the winning side had
eaten their pumpkin pie, the boys
picked up the grains of corn and
pumpkin seeds which were scattered around over the rooms.
These were used as money to bid
for tiny favors in shapes of baskets and pumpkins, each of which
contained the name of a girl. After the boys had found their partners, all were divided into four
groups, and each were to entertain the other with some Hallowe'en stunt.
The couples then adjourned to
the dining room, which was artistically decorated with autumn
leaves, and the table with small
candles and apples. After the
corn bread, honey and milk were
consumed, President Pennington
told a perfectly horrible ghost
story which gave the proper
shivery feeling to take home.
President Pennington gave a
chapel talk Monday on the minor
virtue, as he called it, of
adaptability to ones surroundings in which he told of some
places where men had failed utterly because they failed to "get
on" well with those with whom
they worked. He stated that no
matter how much a man knows
it will be of no use unless he is
able to fit himself to conditions.
