If there is a sporte Valhalla somewhere up in the clouds we ire sure there was a grinning tousle headed boy leaning over the parapets this afternoon as an Ole Miss team rose to fighting heights to beat Tulane 20 to 13. ; And the name of that boy is Jesse Ward, great Rebel end of two seasons ago whose death in an auto accident just before the Mississippi-Tulane game of 1939 cast a pall over the Red and Bluejhat effectively prevented their playing good football. The 1939 Rebels were a bunch of broken hearted kids. . , . . y But that day's sophomores came back to win one lor Jesse today, and they did a very artistic job of it, take it from any of the 44,000 fans who saw the clash. With a conspicuous absence of maudlin sentiment, but with a timely reminder that the seniors of 1941 probably owed Jesse Ward a supreme type of effort today. And that's what they gave in a spirit that was marvelous to see When Harry Metre beat LSU his first game at Ox- ford, we nominated mm xor governor of the state by ac- I A;-, A far as we are clamation. As iar as we are . rnncpme e he deserves a re newal of that nomination. You'll have to pardon us for getting so wrought up. but as we crouched down In that Ole Miss dressing room before the game and heard Coach Mehre's little talk and felt the surge of spirit that he brought In response as the shouting, cheering boys brushed by us golnsr onto the field, some wiping a few tears away as they ran, we went Into a frenzy of anticipation that not even the Tulane first quarter touchdown could erase.

The weather was warm, but a rather keen north breeze cooled things down to a comfortable level except for those who made the mistake of wearing heavy clothes. Crescent citians are still wearing seersuckers and linen in profusion. Ole Miss kicked off out of bounds on the first kick in respect to the touchdown runs of Thomas and Bubber Ely last week but after the score got 7 to 6 in favor of the Rebs, they grew bold and kicked it tight at the Oreenies.

Two Negro Workers Awarded Millions In Oil Property KANSAS CITY, Kas., Oct. 35 (INS) The whole world changed today for two overall-clad negro brothers who became millionaires overnight. "Don't know Just what we'll do about It," was their first comment. Almost too dazed to do more than mumble what they plan to do with then suddenly acquired wealth, the pair, Floyd and Willie Mayweather, reported for work as usual today at the Swift Packing company plant where Floyd works in . the freezing department and Willie in the pickled pork section. They were besieged by reporters, photographers and people with things to sell almost from the moment that an Oklahoma district judge awarded them a half interest of an oil-rich quarter section of Indian-Grant land near Drum-right, Okla. The court held that the fortune, including more than $7,000,000 cash, be divided among the Mayweather Brothers and Mrs. Ozera Lee, 65, a Creek Indian of Claremore, Okla. on . the land, which had belonged to the Mayweather brothers' late uncle are 50 operating oil wells and a gasoline refinery. "Right off I don't know just what IH do about it," said Willie. "But we're going to Invest most of it right off, -1 think, in government defense bonds and annuities. But I'm going to let my lawyer do the talking. We don't want to be pestered by a lot of people selling tilings." Wife Fainted Less calm was Willie's wife. She fainted when she was told of the decision that will mean an immediate award of nearly $2,-000,000 cash to her husband, unless an appeal is entered in the case. Later, Mrs. Willie Mayweather commented : "Sure enough, that's a killer. And was I tickled. . I don't know, but I think we'll buy some bonds." Willie, it developed, wants to buy a cattle ranch when he gets somewhat straightened around. And Floyd, who has" been estranged from his wife for a year, hopes to get a chicken farm started. Floyd's wife filed suit for a divorce in August, and was awarded $7 a week for temporary support until her divorce suit is settled. :.- Asked if there was a chance of a reconciliation now, Mrs. Mayweather snorted: Studebaker sedan, was damaged and the front end of the Ford was damaged. There was no agreement reached by the parties involved, according to the report of police. The 3023 N. State Dial 3-2269 WATCH This Column Each Sunday for COMING ATTRACTIONS Tue.-Wed.

Retiring Student Club Advisor Tells History Of Group A brief histroy of the Student Club section of the Mississippi Home Economics Association has been released here by officials of the organization. The history has been prepared by Miss Helen Hawkins, retiring Sudent Club Advisor of the state. The history of the Club Work is as follows: In 1923, Mississippi State College for Women, Columbus, organized the first student club to be affiliated with the Mississippi Home Economios Association. In 1925, a Home Economics Club was organized at State Teachers' College, in Hattiesburg, by Miss Settle Mae Jenkins with Wilma Hollingsworth as the first president. One of the objectives of the M. H. E. A. in 1927 was to en-courage the organization and affiliation of student clubs. The first club News Letter was published that fall. Two new clubs were organized that year one at Delta State Teachers' College, and the other at Grenada College. In 1928-29, Miss Orances, O. Henley, Student Club Chairman, completed a handbook for student clubs. This year fourteen clubs affiliated with the M. H. E. A. In 1930, Miss Mary Wilson, state advisor of student clubs, started a scrapbook that created an interest in club work. Sven new clubs affiliated. In 1933-35, Miss Loyette Webb Your "Lucky Strike" HIT PARADE Saturday Niyht, Oct. 2 On Victor Blue Bird Records - -.yr to strr DON'T FIRE , TOU AND 2.Tommy Dorsey JIM TTMT: WAS WayT,e Klnc DO TOtr CARln4h Shore lOURS xaTer THE EES Mil AIM Be1" Ttt REV ?- -nirT we tore HI NEIGHBOR D-rf-- Blue Birds 37?e Victor 55c THE EMPORIUM "MUSIC BAR" ,1 was the state advisor. In 1934-35 the number of affiliated clubs reached 33. From 1935 to 1938, Miss Jane Adams was the state advisor. In the December 1936 News Letter, 37 clubs were reported as affiliated. The clubb constitution was adopted on December 5, 1936. In 1937-38, 58 clubs affiliated. The information concernine the clubs before 1938 was taken from old News Letter and old lecords, and is as nearly correct as can be obtained from these sources. One can see that the student club is a new organization and has grown gradually since 1923. Today only Louisiana and Illinois have more high school clubs affiliated than Mississippi, we have 125 high school clubs and 13 college clubs. Miss Gladj'S Short, Chairman of Student Clubs of the American Home Economics Association, wrote: "The very generous contributions that the Mississippi Home Economics Student Clubs have made to the Foreign Fellow-ship Fund, is greatly appreciated. Your club apparently realize the significance of our association's desire to help foreign students learn American ways and take advantage of educational opportunities in the United States". The .clubs report improvement In Home Economics Departments, Mothers and Daughters Banquets, social service work, community projects, club programs and socials. , . The State meeting, November 15-16, 1940 at Mississippi Southern in Hattiesburg, was attended by 420 members, 108 sponsors and eight guests. The variod programs were inspirational and helpful to all. The student ciuo win meet in 1941-42. at Ole Miss in Oxford, at a date to be announced later. Mississippi was allowed 25 delegates to the American Home Economics Association in June, 1941. The goal for 1941-42 Is: An affiliated Home Economics Club in every school offering Home Economics. This will require the cooperation of every teacher of Home Economics, and every principal in those schools. Mississippi should be proud of her club girls and their accomplishments. . MON. - TUE.
