Six thousand persons saw the tilt, marked by fumbles and numerous hard breaks for both teams. Athletic ties, between the schools were severed three years ago because of an eligibility ruling againt Ouachita by the North Central Association of Colleges. The Tigers wasted no time in scoring. After plowing into the Beddie territory on power plays, Fullback Leo Westbrook broke through the line and . weaved his way from the 28 yard stripe for a tally. The second Tiger marker came in the samte period after Ouachita had driven 70 yards to the Reddie nine. A lateral from Reed to Westbrook registered the touchdown and Reed con. verted from placement. The Reddies rallied in the second period after interceptions had malted their aerial attack. They pushed to the 12 on power plays by Tollett and Feeley and Buddy Parker tossed to Ramsey in the end zone for the tuoch- down. Lsite in the third period, the Tigers opened a sustained drive that carried them from midfield to the Reddie eight from where Reed heaved a short pass to Myrick for the final score.

Snorts fiSorts Has Own System MINNEAPOLIS—Such things as how a halfback sets his feet, the thickness of the fullback's legs, and the way a tailback holds his hands may be just so many eccentricities to the rest of the Minnesota team, but to Dan Elmer, G-opher center, they are keys to successful passing of the ball. "When I'm over the ball;" Elmer explains, "all I see are four pairs of legs and hands. This means that I have to spot the first ball-handler by identifying quirks. "When Harold Van Every and George Franck are halfbacks, I can tell who's who by the slimness of Frank's legs. I can tell Wilbur Moore because he has one ankle taped higher than everyone else. "A center has time for only one quick size-up from his upside down position. He does not even have time to watch the ball after it leaves his hands. I£ he does, an opposing line- jnan will tramp all over him."

IMC. Television "Covers" Fire Miles Away "Spot" coverage of a news event by television accidentally occurred when a mobile television unit focussed their lens on a fire at. •Ward's Island, New York. This picture was thrown on an indoor screen four miles away. Paul Harrison in Hollywood Donald Crisp, Actor and Banker, to Retire After 32 Years of It HOLLYWOOD—Probably no other actor in or out of movies is as wealthy as Donald Crisp, and certainly none other is as financially important. Far from delegating his affairs to business managers and bankers, Crisp is a bank er himself. On the board of the Bank of American, he passes on loans made to motion picture studios. And there is a great deal of such finascing; one example was the advance of ?1,500,000 to Walt Disney for the completion Hold Everything! *'J hope you Ijad a good lime last night— I'm sicker than * a dog today!" of "Snow White." This may be a cross way between a story about an actor, but Crisp doesn't expect to be an actor after his current Wanrer Brother contract expires next spring. He entered movies in 1907, and 32 years is an unprecedented time for anybody to stay al the top of the heap. He still commands a neat $2500 a week, and after his present chore as a judge in the Cagney western, "The Oklahoma Kid," he goes into the fourth biggest role in "Jua- rex," a super dooper. Hc'LL, Leave the Screen For the Sea When Crisp leaves the screen there still will be several activities which he can't abondon. His business ni- terests include a great amount of rea gold mine in Northern California Mostly what he wants to do is a lo of traveling on his yacht. It's a motor- sailer, really-a revolutionary ,, stainless steel hulled, 96-foot, twin Diese craft with a cruising speed of 32 knots That's faster than the Normandie or the Queen Mary. It's so fast, indeec that the boat has been a blockade runner carrying ammunition to Loyalis Spain. She cost about 5300,000 when bull by the British aviation magnate, bu Crisp will pay 5175,000 when she is delivered here in a few months. He has sold his yachts White Wing, 112-footer, and the slightly smallei Zema, and now has only a comparatively modest motor cruiser for fishing The new craft will be called "Younj April," a name with a sort of defiani verna! symbolism of which Crisp is especially fond. "I'll have everything on that bout that I've always wanted,' he said. "I'll do exactly what I've always wanted to do. And I'll have it for the rest of my life." Try Gjeen Apples on Him, Olivia The spring-like spirit is by no means foreign to the nature of Donald Crisp Ihis afternoon he may be a stern in- quistor into the affairs of great studioi and the object of executives' deference. And this evening he may be hosting an odd assortment of current stars obscure veteran* und visiting celebrities He brought along Oliva de Havillam for my luncheon interview and spen the time trading outrageous insults with her and ribbing her about her Brent. He calls her a hag. She ad- mits he has certain small boy charm but declares that hs intellect is equally Juvenile. All this in fun, of course. Crip's wife of 14 years is Jane Murfin, one of Hollywood's top scenarists and former actress and stage playwrite (With Jane Cowl she wrote hits such as "Lilac Time" and "Smilin" Through Miss Murfin doesn't wholly share her husband's liking for long cruises in small craft; she prefers big liners. She likes city life, which he avoids. Crisp says his idea of the way to really to enjoy a play is to get the script and curl up somewhere and readit. The actor is neither an amateur nor a social yachtman, and never in his life has he been in Avalon harbor at nearby Catalina Island, where most Hollywoods-men sail. His last cruise covered 18,000 miles around South America A Jaloppy Herder At Heart The couple live in a big, old house above Hollywood, and Crisp drives a light car. He had a 16-cylinder limousine but found it so cumbersome that one day, in disgust he traded it, even, to^a garage man for his present second-han'd jaloppy. singer and a opera company manager ni his youth, Crisp acted and directed. He played the role of General Grant in "The Birth of a Nation" and directed most of the battle scenes. For ears after that he was a director and executive, but returned to acting for relaxation because studio organizations were becoming too complex, are trying to persuade him to direct again, buthe'cl only consider a story that he especially likes and with a budget maybe a million and a half. He wants to quit and have fun, or at leas' to see whether retirment can be fun Crisp tried it once and soon carm back.

CHAPTER XII TTJDY ALCOTT didn't want to J 0o to Dwight Campbell's wedding. She shrank from the thought of It equally os much as she had shrunk from the very Idea of acting as bridesmaid. But not to appear would be to confirm, undeniably and forever, that what people were saying about her was true. The bridge party, that afternoon, had been bad enough. Maybe the others had tried to be kind. They had succeeded only in emphasizing the fact that they were thinking of her as the girl Dwight had jilted. She had lived through the bridge party. Even smiled and laughed and thanked her hostess for a good time. She had lived through the tea that Mrs. Lane, as the wife of Dwight's skipper, could not avoid giving. But every time she remembered those tortured minutes in Mrs. Lane's living room, she clenched her hands. She and Jack Hanley came in late. Purposely. Judy wanted the roorr filled with people, with talk and taughtcr, so that no one would notice her especially. But as it happened, Mrs. Lane was pouring tea when they arrived, and Marvel was sitting in a wing chair, Dwight bending over her solicitously. Mrs. Lane had evidently called some remark to Marvel acrocs the small space between the table -and the chair where Marvel sat, because there was a lull in the room — one of those waiting hushes. And as Dwight smiled down at his fiancee, Jack Hanley and Judy camo into the room. * * * balanced her teacup and said coolly, "How are you, Miss Alcott?" She nodded to Jack, who was leading Judy toward their hostess. Then Marvel said, "I really don't know where we'll live, Mrs. Lane. Is it usual to take one of these little houses?" So Mrs. Lane had asked Marvel house made it so real, so final! Dwight took Judy's hand and pressed it warmly. "Haven't seen you for n long lime, Judy. How have you been?" "Just fine," she said crisply, turning to Jack. But it had been agony, after that, to sec him smiling at Marvel. Whispering to her. Once he took her arm and brought her to Captain Lane's side, and tho very expression on his face seemed to shotU aloud, "Isn't she wonderful, sir?" "We must get out of here as soon as we decently can," said Judy hurriedly. Jack answered slowly, "We've just come." He gave her a sandwich. "That's one of those thin nutbreads you always liked. What's your hurry?" "I'm not in a hurry," she said. "Stand here and take it. Chin up!" he replied. Ho knew what her hurry was, all right. And he knew, too, that she mustn't be routed; she mustn't turn tall and run. where they would live. That ordinary question shouldn't have the power to hurt. But it had. The skipper's wife had known it would hurt Judy. Dwight and Marvel—together. Married. A Nothing had changed since then. She must brazen this out, and the wedding, too. * * » /~\N the morning of the day they ^ were to be married, Judy rose early nnd went to the window. Dwight's wedding day. The sky was deeply blue, already the sun was warming the dew from the grass on the lawn. "I hope he'll be happy!" she said fiercely. "Even if—even if she's the one!" Judy looked at the dress hanging on the velvet hnnger. It wns lovely, splashingly colorful print, not too formal for n noon wedding, and yet special enough so that no one might feel Judy hadn't cared what she wore to Dwight's wedding. She and Diane had ransacked the town for it. Diane had said practically, "You'll be able to wear it all through the summer —it's a gorgeous thing. Teas— Sunday afternoons—" Her narrow patent leather pumps, her pretty new gloves, that were exactly the golden-rust of one of the jungle flowers splashed across the dress. A wide, flat sailor in nnlural straw completed the costume. Her father was in full-dress un'- form, as the ushers nnd bridegroom and other officers would be, too. Driving to the church, she nvoided hot mother's wise eyes. She said, "You look lovely, Mother." Mrs. Alcott wore a pale cream and lavender print. Entering the church, murmuring, "Friends of the groom," Judy caught sight o£ Diane nnd Bill. Diane wns stunning in a scarlet polka dot, the skirt of which repeated the pattern in purple. They had bought their dresses at the snme time. Bill, with his Viking blondness, looked very handsome. And then Jack was nt her side. Judy's breath caught in her throat. He sat between her nnd her mother. He, too, wns very good- looking in the dress uniform, his epaulets cmphasizihg the breadth of his shoulders. * * * TT was a polite, handsome nssem- binge. Smart hats, pretty women. On the other side of the church, Judy snw the "friends of the bride." They were stunningly dressed. The men in civilian clothes were not the same type as the navnl officers, but they looked bland and accustomed to ease. Lilies were banked at the altar. There were tall ferns, tho scent of flowers. Judy closed her gloved hand tightly on her bag. She must stop thinking. She must get through this somehow without giving in to the wild desire to screnm. The orgnn's sonorous pealing began. .Tnck whispered, "They're doing it up brown!" and Judy gave him a tiny, grateful smile. It was then, while-the organ played, thnt Judy s;iw the mon again. The one who had lunched with Marvel. That smooth, dnrlc head; the self-possessed, assured air. The long, thin face—the lips Hint were set in an almost mocking expression. She had never forgotten him. The man who was so perfectly the sort Marvel would know. There was no doubt about it—it wns he. "But of course," Judy snid to herself, "He'd be nt her if he's n friend of hers." wedding Yet that had beon more than n friendly lunch. She remembered ngain tho wny the man's hands lind reached for Marvel's. There wns n stir in the church, nnd people turned their heads. The bride. The bride coming down the nisle, on the arm of her un^c. Jack snid involuntarily, "By God, she looks Rood!" She did, Judy admitted. Her dross wns of exquisite white tulle. It billowed about her like soft, lacy clouds. The shining, burning red of her hnir was veiled by n simple length of tulle, crowned by a tiny wreath of orange blossoms. There wns color only in her hnir, nnd in the flaunting, amazing fact that in- slcad of tho traditional white bouquet, Marvel wns carrying deep red roses. Rich, heart's blood red. Judy watched her walk slowly down the nisle. Dwight, his love shining in his pyc-s, wns wniting for her. Judy foil a sob gathering in her throat. Her fingers went to her lips, but before she could stifle it, Jack had heard her moan, "I can't stand it! I 'can't, I can't!" (To Be Continued) By Olive Roberts Barton Youth Can't Ever Take Kindly to Its Years "How long will it be before a fellow can get married?" wondered Bill half to himself and half aloud. Bills father was reading the paper, but he heard that. Mother was in the kitchen washing dishes and the two had the room to themselves. The radio turned low was humming a tune that got you, so felt Bill. Mr. Wright knew all about Bess. Bill couldn't half study any more. Bill was eighteen and Bess sixteen. He said casually, pretending to catch an item on the stock page, "Oh, when he can afford to keep her, I suppose." "But how the he—heck can a fellow keep a wife when he has to go to some- fool school all the time? Arid how can he get work anyway? It's going to be a hundred years before I'm able to do any better than that Peter. You got 'nVarried when you were twenty and mother was eighteen. But even that's too young." "Well, I'll tell you, Bill. Our folks had a farm. I made thirty dollars a month in town clerking in a store and we lived at home. One or two more in a large family didn't make and difference. Besides your mother was strong and helped with the younger children. She worked hard and did half tho house work when Grandma began to feel her years. We got along." "Didn't Uncle Matt get married when he was just nineteen? He got a job with the Company and made enough to live on. They lived in two rooms over the butcher shop." "Thinking of getting 'nVarried, Bill?" "You bet I am, and how. But if Bess and I thought of marrying next year, the S. P. C. C. would bo after us. He—heck. You gottn go to school now till you're on crutches. I certainly think it's putrid. College. Heck, I don't want to go to college. I want to work with my hands and the little brain I have. I want to get married when I'm nineteen. I'm not wuitin' till I 'deserve a wife.' I think a man deserves a wife when hcs willing to work fifteen hours a day and half die for her. College, humph. It's all talk. I'm fed up." His father thought, "He will be telling his children some clay about an old flame of his called Bess. And how he meant to marry her or jump in the river, when he was eighteen.' But he said, "It is too bad the way times are, son. And Bess is not very strong. She is as thin as n broom 1 straw. Doctors cost money. And a week's wash would kill her." Bill continued to rumble and reason. His father resumed his reading. It all seemed like a comedy in one aet to Ihe older man. But Bill wanted to work. He was tired of school and more school. He was at an age when natured begged to he heeded and not put off loo long. Restlessness and rebellion in young people is sometimes duo to this feeling of hopelessness and frustration.* "THE ROBARY" by Ethelbert Nevin Robert Cameron Rogers BIRTH OF A SONG From ASCAP Files By Joseph R. Flfesler and Paul Carrurli CTHELBERT WOODBRIDCE NEVIN was ^ born to the music of the Cods on Movember 25th, 1862, in the family home It Vinacre. Pa., in the shadow of the hills of Pittsburgh, -,' The first grand piano in the west belonged to his mother, and Nevin learned to play on this instrument. When he composed "Narcissus" the maids were drawn from the scullery by the beauty of his performance. He was married to Miss Anne Paul on January 5th, 1888. Shortly afterwards the young couple moved to Quincy, Mass. It was here that Nevin received, from a friend in California, a copy of the lyrics of "The Rosary. Enthusiastic and inspired the young composer set to work immediately to write' music to suit the mood of the poem. After wrestling with the muse all night the song was born. Nevin was giving a series of concerts at which Francis Wilson sang, and he urged his new song on Wilson. Nevin's brother-in- law wagered he would not have the orchestration, completed in Jim« for th» But the brother-in-law lost. The orchestration arrived on time and Wilson scored with his new song. "The Rosary" was first highly appreciated, however, in Boston. Only four years later, the brilliant young composer was called back by the Cods to join Schubert, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Chopin and other great composers who had been cut off in their early years.
