Dancing doesn't come under the heading ol sports but the subject ol flsh does so we are "prompte'd to'^ass" on to you the pronouncement of Dr. Foster Kennedy, famous brain surgeon and neurologist ol Cornell University and Bellcvue Hospital in New York City, before the Pan- American Medical Association who in giving science's answer., to the question: ^JWhy j3o we dance?" said: ~ --~ ~~~~ ~~ -- ~ "We dance because once we were .- . --- - SUU1C We've had- the monkey angle- WPA pitched in our direction "from time to timo since Clarence Darrow's big moment d o w n South - but the speckled, finny creatures had been spared up to now. Whether the doctor drew his conclusion after he sow some of the dancers gliding on the door "iUled to the gills" we don't know. But back to Dr. Kennedy's discourse. His thesis was lengthened into an encyclopedic- 'discussion of "The Organic Background of the Mind," highly^instructiye for ncurologisti, doctors m general and even the loy. In his own words, our dancing is n symbol of the whole complex relationship between the architecture of the body, especially the nervous system, and .what we call "mind." International" News Service quoted Dr. Kennedy: "Did it ever occur to you why we dance, why we like to dance? Dancmgsurcly seems a curious occupation lor a rational animal. Your psycho-analyst will probably tell S'ou that we dance in order to have sex on the half-shell. I think this is confusion of thought. They .interpret the purpose of dance, without explaining why such quaint occupation should exist at all. "I believe that the reason why the human animal dances lies in an odd anatomical and physiological circumstance. It is in our eighth cranial nerve, the auditory nerve, Continued on Page Thirteen, Plans Completed For Wildlife Show In Baltimore, Md BALTIMORE, Feb. 4.--With al preliminary arrangements having been made the officials of the North American Sports, Garden and Outdoor Life Show arc now completing the flnal"details for this outdoor spectacle, which will open in Baltimore next week.

Leading Penn Stale Baskeieers Play Two Games Away This Week PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 4.--The leading Pcnn State qumtct faces its stlffcst assignment of the young Eastern Conference basketball campaign this week, appearing on the road twice against formidable foes, tonight the unbeaten Nittany Lions engage Temple here and on Saturday continue on to Washington to battle Georgetown. Both Temple and Georgetown arc tough barriers on their home courts and if tho Lions can snare one of the two frays their chances for gaining the crown will be exceedingly bright, for already the charges of Johnny Lawther own one away-from-home victory, downing Carnegie Tech ol Pittsburgh several weeks ago.

By United Press. SANDXJSKY, Ohio, Feb. 4--Mrs. Dan Morris, freckled and auburn- laired, who hid behind a post at her firsfwrestllng match a few years ago, snid today that she was "getting along okay so far" with the wrestling promoting she took up after her promoter husband's death. Mrs. Morns, pretty and only in her Inte twenties, became a full- fledged promoter ot weekly "grunt and groan" shows here and in Elyria, Ohio, after the sudden death of her husband last .summer. It was her own decision. Her .friends promised their support nnd she decided to carry on. "I think it was the excitement of it all that persuaded me to do it. And it's Iccpt me going." she smiled. Wrestling fans in both cities have shown confidence in the sprightly young widow. Cash at the box office, even in the current recession, has held up, the pert young womnn admitted, shruwringly. 'There really isn't nny slump In the .wrestling game. I guess." Mrs. Morns' husband rose from wrestler to piomotcr. In his ring days, his young helpmeet could not al first bear what she called "the brutality." 'I hid behind a post the first lime I saw Don climb into the ring. But I changed my mind later. 'It Isn't so brutal, cspocially after you meet some of the fellows. I became a rabid fnn." The prim Mrs Morris acquired her training in promotion similarly. When Morris left the img and started promoting, his wife handled the box-offlco duties In Hint way, ;hc met the wrestling participants. Now a piomotT in her own name, she has hired an tiRcnt to do the actual mntch-mnking. "I watch the business. I gi\c the contestants the once-over before the card is offered to the public." As referee for hoi mutches, she uses George Nichols, retired light heavyweight boxing champion. Mrs. Morris was nskcd If shr c\cr had run into emergencies which required her retorcclng. "No " rhc smiled, "but I would get right in there if I hid to." Younjrn'DOd Wants Games.
