Cage Practice Arkansas Looks Too Tough for Foes in Southwest By HAROLD V. RATL1FF AP Feature Service DALLAS — When you mention bas- cetbalt own here in the Southwest t's spelled A-R-K-A-N-S-A-S. The tall Razorbacks have won eight championships and tied for another n 17 years and the signs say they'll 30 up there battling for the crown again come December, They call Coach Glen Rose "Gloomy 31en" although he's had little to DC sad about since Arkansas entered ihc Southwest Conference in 1024. This time, though, he has a wail coming, but you still can't count the Porkers out of the race. Noble Hobbins, big, steady forward, decided to get married and accept a job on a defense project, That left only four lettermen, but what guys! Tall Timber Center Gordon Carpenter is G-feet- 6, forward O'Neal Adams is 6-feet-3 and Guards R. C. Pitts and Clayton Wynne each are G-feet-4. The defending champion Razorback who swept through 12 games for a perfect season in the conference and lost to only one college team through out the campaign, lost Forward John Adams, Center John Frieberger and Guard Howard Hickey. "We'll have a good club but we need ball hustlers like oJhn Adams and Howard Hickey," Rose said in commenting on conference prospects. "Right now Pitts looks like the player most likely to hawk the ball all the time." Rose predicted Rice and Southern Methodist would be as strong or stronger than Arkansas. "The Owls' two or three individual stars and the Mustangs' abundance of fine team-play men wil make them tough to beat," he said SMU Promising Southern Methodist, however, can' match Arkansas when it comes I lettermen. The Mustangs had figurcc on four but Bryan Lloyd, star for ward, joined the air corps, leaving Johnny Sebeck and Roy Baccus, guards, and big Hugh Welch, center. S. M. U. has come up, though, with several potential greats from junior colleges and some promising squad- men. Rice threatens to be plenty trouble some. In fact, Rice might well be labeled the favorite with its wealth of material including towering Bob Kinney, who got all-America mention at center last season, and forward Bill Tom Closs. Both are 6-feet-G. There are seven lettermen in the Rice fold, including the 1941 captain, Placido Gomez, who missed competition last season because of a broken foot. Texas A. and M. also has seven lettermen, Baylor has five, Texas Christian four and Texas three. Bill Henderson, giant guar, heads the Aggie array which looks quite formidable. Old soldiers of 1917-18 may deny it, but It's doubtful If their nurses matched the comeliness of these members of the first class of nurses' aides graduated under the Office of Civilian Defense program.

So much so that recently they met to voice their protest. Before we women get all excited and start writing our congressmen, lot's think what life would be like if we didn't have to put enamel on our nails, rouge on our checks, lipstick on our lips, mascara on our lashes; if we didn't have to got permanent waves every few months and have our hair-dos re-crcntcd every week; if we didn't have to remember to cream our faces at night and rub special oils around our eyes. If we gave up all our beautifying We'd hnvc an average of an hour or two a day that would be free time, to spend just as we please. And according to the complaints of most of us, we need that hour or two. We all talk about how busy we are, and we tell each oilier about all the things we would do if we just hnd the time, and we excuse ourselves for all that wo don't get done by saying that there just aren't eno'Hi hours in the day.

Well, if we didn't have to spend so much time on our looks in order to be just as well groomed and glamorous as the next woman, we could have some time for helping to run the affairs of state.

Y., are having the time of their lives watching government bureaus work here and hearing the wheels of congress grind. They think it's much better than sitting in dull classrooms and studying the facts from dry-as-dust textbooks. This is the seventh year this has been done and the whole plan is unique with Colgate University. Every year 10 students who stood highest in their freshman and sophomore years are selected from the junior a fellow is turned down by he isn't well off, he class. Attendance at the study course in Washington 'is entirely optional and also depends upon whether the boys feel they can afford it. The course is very serious work, but made intensely interesting by the opportunities offered the students who come to the capital in charge of Dr. Paul S. Jacobsen, assisant professor of political science. Under the Colgate plan, the boys spend the first semester from Sept. 25 to Jan. 25 here, and while in Washington they get credit for the work done here.

Geoffrey Keyes, division chief of staff, warm up for second phase of fourth army maneuvers in gouth, .Carolina. time is spent in these proportions: for every nine hours' devoted to the study of public administration, six other hours are spent' in the study of political control. ' A Typical Day From 8:30 to 10:30 a. m., the boys meet Dr. Jacobsen in an informal class in which topics connected with their studies are discussed. He then assigns two students each to go to the offices of the Securities and Exchange Commission, Food and Drug Administration, Civil Service Commission, Interstate Commerce Commission and he Customs Bureau of the Treasury Jepartment. Arrangements for their •eception and guidance are made in advance by Dr. Jacobsen. The students are given every opportunity to see how the bureaus are organized, what their work is, how .hey arrange their budget and di- •ect their personnel. Day after day may thus be spent for a month. At :he end of the semester each student is supposed to write elaborate reports on what he learned about at least three government bureaus or departments. In the matter of political control, the students sit in the gallery of the senate and house and thus see congress in action. They attend congressional committee meetings, hearings and investigations. They have opportunity to attend conferences with the majority and minority leaders in congress. Finally, they usually get consent of the congressman from their district or one of the senators from their state to do some work in his office. They thus get an idea of the mail the solon gets from his constituents, and also what arguments are made by pressure groups and lobbyists. Eye on Defense This year they are concentrating on public administration in relation to national defense. They also watch the propaganda machines at work in their drives for and against matters connected with defense and foreign policy. Through Dr. Jacobscn's acquaintances in Washington the students have an opportunity to meet personally man yof the leaders in congress and, sometimes, cabinet officers and justices of the Supreme Court. An annual social event is a tea given them by Mrs. Roosevelt. The students this year are Robert Beit*, Buffalo, N. Y.; Robert A. Walker, Hamilton, N. Y.; William J. Barber, Cleveland Heights, O.; Noel Ru- binton, Brooklyn, N. Y.; William J. Smith, Westfield, N. J.; Joseph de Bragga, Richmond Hill; N. Y.; Edward S. Jones, UUca, N. Y.; Robert McCallum, Nuttley, N.

Marriage Helps Students Study SALT LAKE CITY, Utah-(#-)—Married students at the University of Utah say that matrimony has aided their scholastic careers. ,They have more time for study,, desipte the duties of earning a living and keeping house, and they can prepare lessons better in their own homes than in the university library, say the students. Mrs. Mary Malmstrom Shields, who was married to Jed W. Shields last summer, explains it this way: "It makes studies more intresting when we can study together." Mrs. Mary Jane Carter Due, who i was married a few months ago to John F. Due, economics instructor, reports she has time not only for her student activities but for attendance at meetings of the faculty women's club Most of the students agree that marriage won't work in every case, suggesting that men students usually are too young and too poorly prepared Jack Oakie, Linda Darnell, George Murphy in Saenger Film Centers of social life for American youth, hub of its pleasures and good times, are the colleges of the country. Here, in addition to education, young men and women gather to enjoy life. With this in mind, the 20th Century- Fox studio set out to create its newest musical funfest, Mark Bellinger's "Rise and Shine," starting Sunday at the Saenger theater, with a background of college life. Surely, if the young people of the nation find so much to enjoy there in real life, a rousing, trub-to-life comedy could be made. Clayton College, a mythical institution of learning in the middle west, was selected as the locale. Clayton, of course, has features which al" alumni remember—the class rooms are not prominent, though the fun and good times are. This program was t into effect in order to let Jack Dakie, Linda Darnell aid George Murphy have more time for fun, foot- aall and dancing. The most important activity at Clayton is football. Nothing matters except the undefeated season, which is in the heart of every student. And in order to accomplish this, all efforts are bent toward making the star fullback, "Boley" Bolenciecwcz, happy at all times. Swarms of girls sing to him, others lullaby him to sleep. Nothing is allowed to interfere with his comfort. With this background, everything is set for a fun-filled musical. Pretty co-eds abound on the campus. Singing beauties sing top-ranking hits to their heroes. Cute young things perform new dances. And they are all natural activities for a college where fun is the keynote of all activities. Starred in "Rise and Shine" with Jack Oakie, George Murphy, and Linda Darnell are waiter Brcnnan and Milton Boric. Allan Dwan directed the film, which features Sheldon Leonard, Donald Meek, Ruth Donnelly and Raymond Walburn. Saratoga High School News Honor Roll For Third Month, Those students who had no grade lower than 80 and A on conduct for the third month of school were: Juniors: Dexter Alford; Sophomores: Mildred Evans and Betty Jo Reed; freshmen: Mary Louise Biackwood, Edna Pearl Gray, and Rachel Porter. The seniors received their rings last week. Because of the ruby sets 12 out of the 18 chose, everyone seems to think these the prettiest rings ever bought by Saratoga seniors.

Gentle Reminder"—newspaper headline. What's gentle about it? By HAY JONES <i Chief portrait photographer, Uni-1 vcrsal Studios, today's guest columnist during Paul Harrison's vacation, HOLLYWOOD — The still camera finally has come into its own, not only in newspaper work and the picture magazines, but also 'in Hollywood. For years movie companies have annually spent more than $1,000,000 on photographs for publicity. At the same time, they long failed to realize the value of photographs for use in actual production planning. I am naturally prejudiced, but I.pre- dict that portrait sittings will soon rival screen tests as media for the discovery of new motion picture personalities and development of the versatility of established players. The average feminine star has about 20 portrait and fashion sittings a year, and it is our job—with varied makeup, hair-do, costumes, expression and NYA Workers Selected , The five students selected by the faculty to serve as NYA workers for December are: Mabel Clayton, Wai-lace Schooley, Jack McCorkle, CRar- lene Hester, and Lloyd Spates. A visitor in the village was greatly interested in all he saw. In particular he noticed that one of the inhabitants was treated with marked respect by the others, so he remarked: "I observe that you all treat that man with marked deference." "Yes," was the answer, "he's one of the early settlers." "Early settlers!" exclaimed the other, "Why, he can't be more than 30!" "That may be true," -the other answered, "but he pays his bills promptly on the first of every month."

Maria Made It An example of the part still photography now plays in a career is furnished by the campaign on Maria Montez. Before she ever played an important role, our department had shot nearly 1000 negatives of her, at a cost of some $10,000, Besides publicity stills, they included several One beautiful thing about winter is winter clothes have more pockets than you can fill up with stuff.

When these pictures were slud- ed by Producer-Director George Wagner, lie selected her for the part. Many present-day stars owe a large measure of their success to the ef- lorts of Hollywood photographers. B'ct- ,y Grable was kept before the public 'or years, through the medium af stills, at a time when she was play- ng minor roles. When her big break came, the public was ready to accept her as a top-ranking star. Myrna Loy's discovery is generally credited to a photographer whose stills brought her to the attention of the Studios. At one -point in her career,. Carole Lombard was glamorized largely through still pictures, Jean Parker took on a new and colorful personality about a year ago when attractive "leg" and action stills of her began to flood the country. A single picture of Betle Davis once encouraged her to carry on in her struggle to become a movie actress. When she was first under contract in Hollywood, a succession of bad breaks depressed her and caused her to lose her vital spark. One day I made a candid shot, without her knowledge, of Bette laughing, and next day I showed it to her as an example of what her personality might be. It gave her new confidence and animation. How to Do It While it is necessary for motion picture people to take on different personalities in a studio portrait gallery, the average girl who has her picture taken perhaps once a year should try only to be herself in front of the camera. Dress and make up as if you were going out for an evening, and keep the clothes simple and the makeup at minimum. If you wear an eccentric hat or dress which happens to be in the current style, your photograph will be out of date as soon as the style changes. After that it will be just a subject of comment on what funny clothes women wore in 1941. Most men have to be dragged to a photographer, so there is little advice they can be given. All I can say is: Wear :i lie 1 , shuvc und comb your hair. The photographer will tlo the rent.
