In tho final period, however, St. Joe bogged down, and Burt, led by Bolife, began 1 to overtake thfe south Kossuth boys. Morris Reding went out on fouls, and Mary Reding replaced rilm in the final two minutes of regular tijmc. The two teams wefe ti^d at 39 all when the buzzer sounded to end the fourth quarter.

Not over seventy-five year* ago a man of superior intelligence could possess a working knowledge of all of science. Now, however, the realm of the known is to vast that it is necessary for men to specialize in order to master one small but deep corner of Scientific knowledge. , Thus we have the physician, who diagnoses disease and prescribes medication and treatment. The,, pharmacist compounds and dispenses. Both the physician and the pharmacist benefit greatly from the researches of the biologist, the chemist, the physiologist, and the physicist, to name but a few.
