Upon reading an editorial .under the above caption written by a commercial concern in a late copy of the "Manchester Guardian," the editorial staff of the "Cub" thought it worthy of reproduction in their paper. The following is an excerpt from the editorial: "It has often occured to us, as we survey the formidable lists of 'isms' and 'ologies* in the curricula o£ modern schools that a little more attention might usefully be devoted to encouraging the development of 'mental' calisthenics.' Physical fitness is an entirely admirable thing, and an A number 1 goal most surely worth striving for. This more especially in an age when press, mo- lion picture and radio attempt lo think for the public vicariously. "It is astonishing to observe how small a proportion can be credited with a capacity for sound, constructive, independent thinking. They are prepared, speaking for the majority, to take things for granted, to carry on their routine jobs under the guidance of a superior, without question, without deviation, assuming that the manner of carrying on their particular job is traditional, unalterable. 'Not for them to reason why.' " S. F. G. And Then Go to RAY SENEY 19 EAST STATE For Watches Diamonds Save the Difference HAVE YOU SEEN THE LATEST IN TRACK AND BASEBALL EQUIPMENT?

C. H. S. FITZGERALD IS PARODY AUTHOR Assistant Band Director to Present Number at Next Concert. J. J. Fitzgerald, assistant director of the M. C. H. S. band, has written a vocal part as a parody to the new number, "Comin' Round the Mountain," just purchased for the band. His arrangement has the same tune and words as Ihe old familiar piece by the same name. The only change is that he has turned the original "hill-billy" number into a choral selection with a hymn -tempo. The new piece is first played by the entire band and sounds as if a train were coming around a mountain. Several instrumental solos then followed with a piccolo feature playing the tune as it would be played in the "Spirit of '78." The clarinets then portray butterflies; the oboes, fan dancers; the basses, cows; the trombones, elephants and the drums, hoof beats. The number will first be presented to the public at the next band concert. S.U.I. Alumni Here Urged to Help With Student Loan Funds Local alumni of the Stale University of Iowa have received this week printed pamphlets urging life membership in the Iowa Alumni association so as to build up a student loan fund comparable to those of five other mid- western state universities. Loan funds in these institutions range from $130,280 to $477,387 while Iowa's is but $38,000 which is utterly inadequate lor the school with a total.annual attendance of 10,000 students. The fund will be invested in interest bearing loans to needy and worthy students through the University Loan committee. Life membership in the association costs $25, while the regular annual fee is one dollar.

Ph. 3272 GONE WITH THE WIND One of (he minor highlights ol the operetta was, to my way o£ thinking, that blood-curdling scream in the? first act. The screamer was Alice Hood, a sophomore. And, don't you think our comedian, Lester Boyce, is an appealing actor? When he stands on the stage, lie looks and sounds like a little boy in a- sand pile. It was a real performance, Les. Congratulations, also, to Bill, Tommy, Stan, and Bob, Ruth and ray the, and all the others. i'f * Ct Ed Hunter told me the other day that when he was a little boy, Tommy Rye used to win all his mavbles. That reminds me, have you noticed how many high school hoys are playing marbles now? Around the grade schools, the girls will soon be playing jacks and slapping rope. 0 3 =.1 I'd be almost willing to wager that the thoughts oC the musical half of the student body are turning to Iowa City, where tlie state music festival is to be held early in May. Perhaps, we'll be seeing you there. Yours WIND-O-PANE May See Grade School Art Exhibit Evenings An exhibit of the art work done by the grade schools of Mason City under the supervision of Miss Ethel Roberts and Miss Betty Leland which is being held in the children's room of the public library, has attracted a great deal of attention. To give an opportunity to all those unable to come before G p. m., arrangements have been made to have the children's room open Friday evening from C lo 8 o'clock. Children will not be admitted unless accompanied by their parents. Coach Clayton "Chick" Sutherland has been working with his 1937 baseball candidates since March 1 in the high school gym until weather permits practice at the stadium. The following letter men appeared: John Thompson, who led the Mohawks in batting last year, Harris Dilabough, regular shortstop, Bob Woodward, reserve catcher and outfielder, Eddie .Tim- inez, pitcher, Everett Fletcher, pitcher, Jack Wallace, pitcher and first baseman, Leland Huff, first Baseman and Bob Cookman. third Baseman. Four Letter Men Gone. Coach Sutherland lost only four letter men from last year's squad which lost to Rodman in the finals in the district tournament. One of the four was an iniielder, while the other three were outfielders. The vacant second base position will probably be filled by Orin Thom'pson, while others trying for infield berths are: Billy Challas, Jimmy Huensch, Don Wass, Date Fox, Anthony Accurso, Jim Cookman, and Walter Eau Claire. In the outfield every position is wide open with three men coming up from the reserve squad. The outfielders that are trying out are: Claude Snell, Junior Law, Dauane Law, Kenneth Brunei 1 , Gilbert Christianson and James Humphrey, while pitchers are: Everett Fletcher, Jack Shire, Eddie Jiminez, Woodie Soals, Fred Doderer and Ed Clouse. Coacli Sutherland has no worry over the catching position because of two returning veterans and two newcomers. Tlie veterans are John Thompson and Bob Woodward, one of whom may be shifted to the outtiold, while Maurice Cooper and Ross Anderson are the newcomers. "Chick" started his 1937 football campaign by calling all candidates to report [or spring practice in thi; gym and wrestling room until weather permits them to engage in outdoor practice. The spring drills will be topped off with a gamu against Clear Lake during sprinjj vacation for boys not out for track or baseball. Report for Grid Practice. The squad which reported'was as follows: Fred Stoecker and Ed Clouse, ends; Tommy Galios, Resla Kavaya, and Bert Roberts, tackles; Tom Rumeliote, Ross Anderson, and Don Leake, guards; Maurice Cooper and Presley O'Gren, centers; Clark Sweelscr nnd Jim Peterson, quarterbacks; Harris Dilabough and Fred Clavis, tailbacks; Bob Woodward, fullback; Junior Law and Woodie Sonls arc the wing backs. Others to report are Bob Cookman, quarterback; Harold McKenzie and Howard Gorman, ends; Wayne Wood, tailback; Jack Wallace, wingback; and Leland Huff, center. ' Medal Contest System. In order to promote better all around football ability Coach Sutherland is reintroducing a medal contest system which ho inaugurated about six years ago when old slars, such as Bob Burns.

Late copies of the city edition of one of the world's greatest newspapers--The Manchester Guardian, and the Daily Mirror-- were received by the Cub staff, Monday from Calhryn J. Parklan, senior student of Detroit, Mich., who served as escort for the M. C. delegation when they attended the N. S. P. A. convention there. Cathryn gets complimentary copies from er uncle who is n member of the 'Guardian" staff. Christopher Morley in his lecture, to the students at Detroit, stressed tlie fact that the Manchester Guardian was one of the world's greatest newspapers. Students are impressed with (he personal ads on page one instead of news stories,'and the tremen- lous lack of cuts as compared with American newspapers. Century Old News. In the column--"100 Years Ago" paragraphs are quoted from the uardian of Wednesday, Feb. 8. 1B37, concerning an epidemic of influenza in England at that lime. Perhaps the most startling editorial was "Big Bill" which reads as follows: Little Dodgers Report 100 Per Cent at Meet Members ot the ''Little Dodger" stuff a t t e n d e d t h e journalism meeting 100 per cent Friday. They accompanied Miss Dora Holman, student council adviser, nnd Miss Doris Lumley, a d v i s e r , for the *'IJtUe Dodger/' of Fort Dodge high school.
