Chicks, Goats Buy a College Career Indiana Youngsters Take <IOU Chickens, 3 Goats to College UPLAND, hid. —(/V)— When lla/.el and Mabel Jane Smith and their brother, Logan, entered Taylor university this fall, they brought with them .KM) chickens and three goats. The chickens and goats are to earn the Smith trio's way through the university. The trio really is four, because Logan's wife, Opal, came with them. She's to be their housekeeper. It's a habit with tho Smith fanidy, farmers near Hager.slown. OIIK-I Smith, the father originated tin 1 poultry method of financing college exjjeiiM'S when bis oldest daughter, Martha, started to Taylor in l!)2'.l. Martha kepi chickens through her five years of university training. She now is teaching school at Coulterville, 111. KKK Market Good 'Hie three Smiths now in school arrived by truck and moved into a four- room house. The job of registering for classes had to wait until the flock of chickens were housed in two poultry buildings and the goats turned out to pasture. The egg market i.s good and the Smiths figure the net profits for the winter fro m.salc of eggs will be $8011. School expenses for the three will be about $1125 and living easts $300. Thus, the hens come close to paying the entire bill. Ha/.el, now 22, is in her senior year. Logan. 20, is a junior and Mable Jane, 18, i.s a freshman. Opal keeps house for the other three in the home which they rent for ?100 a year. The chickens have been bought each year from their father at SI each. When school i.s over they sell them barlt to iJiL-jj father at the same price and since most laying hens sell for 51,50 after a year's production, Mr. Smith doesn't do badly either. The feed is bought at home and. trucked to Upland. liens (id Extra Meal Last year the youthful egg merchants didn't do so well. The market was bad football it wants-hard games where the thrill of the play exceeds even our desire to remain unbeaten, or an easier schedule with the .smaller cities of our own district, lleie in Hope the biggest crowd in our history was drawn to the Shrcveport game, with the Hobviits facing an admittedly superior team and certain defeat.

It is imnarflon.iblr to leave school athletics completely nl the mercy nf that .section of the pub- lit 1 whose sole interest is the stadium seat they temporarily occupy. The human being doesn't live who actually loves to lo.se. But there is something more to sport than compiling a statistical record of infallibility. Only one man ever won all his victories and conquered the earth -and history tolls us when he had gotten everything he was unhappy. What we nrcd in football i.s less of this "unbeatable" stuff and more of the spirit of baseball, where a team that takes thrce- (fuarlers of its games is a world champion.

Out.—The Dionne quintuplets may look ns much alike as five jwas out of the same pod, but their personalities arc already as different as five personalities cnn lie. They have .the same heredity and tiiey'-hayp beetv-growing. up in tho same Qnvirof\tncnl—but the- result Uj five utterly distinct little girls who nre plready setting the patterns for widely divergent character trails. If you wanted to characterize the Kirk briefly, you would do it about like this: Yvonne i.s the motherly type, the most mature socially of the five. Annette is the social climber. Kmilie is the happy-go-lucky member of the crowd, willing to give and take on a 50-50 basis. She i.s also the most .self-sufficient. C'ocile is the unknown quantity. Marie i.s the baby of the family. Plain Common Sense These are not mere casual observations, hut the settled conclusions of .science. They arc expressed in a I HI per on the quints' social development written by Dr. W. K. Blatz, D. A. Millichamp and M. Charles, after three psychologists had spent two years observing the quints. During those two years the psychologists scrutinized the quints methodically to sec just what their social relations with each other were. The way such an investigation is carried on looks like hocus-pocus, at fir.st glance, but when you strip it of iUs solemn verbiage it turns out to he plain common sense. For instance, suppose that a study i.s being made of you and inc. 1 offer you a cigarette; (lie psychologist notes that 1 have made an "initiated-to" contact. If you turn away and pay no attention, it's no dice; but if you lake it, you are credited with a "re- ,-pouse-to contact, and if you say, "Thank you, old-timer," 1 am credited filh a "from" contact. See'.' Watched Them Solemnly That was the way the psychologists worked with the quints. Sometimes they would isolate two sister in a play pen and make a note of every contact between (he two; sometimes they turned ;ill five loose together and sat there, solemnly, pencil in hand, to write down what happened. Here is a sample from their record: "Annette runs and pushes Cccile, who apparently ignores this overture." (Score as a contact between the two, initiated by Annette.) "Then Annette pushes Yvonne, who pushes hack in retaliation." (Recorded as a contact between Annette and Yvonne, initiated by Annette and responded to by Yvonne.) "Then Annette pulls off Yvonne's hair ribbon, causing Yvonne to cry, whtieupi'ii Annette hands back the iibbon which causes Yvonne to stop i-iymg and look at it." (Annette is credited with one "iniliated-to" contact and one "response-to" contact; Yvonne gets credit for two "response- to" contacts.) From all of this the psychologist makes up a box score, thus: Annette: lour "tu-eontaets" (three initiated, one response); three "from" contacts (all resiMiises). Cecile: one "from" contact (from Annette'. Yvonne: three "to" contacts (responses to Annette'; three "from" contacts ifrom Annette). Which leaves Annette, for the moment, leading the league.

Page, about 68, retired Nashville railroad foreman, was mysteriously shot at 9 o'clock Wednesday morning when he knocked on the door of a woman's home at Mineral Springs, about eight miles southwest of Nashville. Page was brought to Julia Chester hospital at Hope suffering with a bullet wound through his stomach. Sheriff Clarence Dildy of Howard county quoted Page as saying that he didn't know who shot him—that when, he knocked on the door a gun was fired inside, the bullett crashing through the door and striking Page. The sheriff said that Page, after being shot, walked to his automobile nearby and drove to Nashville where a physician advised him to come to the hospital at Hope. i. Page obtained a driver and arrived at the hospital here shortly after 10 a. m. Page underwent an operation at 11 a. m., the bullet being extracted at that time. No one had been arrested early Wednesday afternoon.
