A marked success, characterized by many varied episodes created a very interesting atmosphere and held the interest of a large audience throughout. This Pageant presented entirely Qoupie at Home to Friends by Foreign students under the direction of Miss Francis Lucas is the pro- Will Soon Receive Their duct of a Club tradition created twor'-------! years ago by Mr. Harry MacMath ‘o be staged as a Harvest Festival annually at Thanksgiving time. A procession of the Nations served as an opening feature followed by six separate acts presented individually by the different groups. A grand ensemble closed the entertainment with much applause. It wae hard to distinguish and grade the various acts in proportion to each other owing to the wide amount of difference in the character of each. Possibly the most original and cleverly presented scene was presented by the Chinese. In the form of a humorous Festival the act was beautiful to the uttermost in dramatic Chinese lan guage. Miss Elinor Chan interpreted and explained the progress of the pre- ^ sentatlon. 14 BIBLICAL PLAY GIVEN B< Y. M. C. A.

Those who are in charge of directing the movement of the invader report that the advance may be delayed due to a shortage of provisions necessary to fill the hold of the Wooden Horse before setting it in action. Erciiio Adasmus and Rossus Will-Bio, assistant commanders of the horse, are working over time trying to get the thing out of the garage. The commanders were under the impression originally that ttfe Wooden Horse was equipped with a selfstarter; however, investigation has revealed their mistake. The horse has been found very stubborn and has refused to move despite all efforts of the grooms. Every inducement to action has been tried from the push and pull method used on the ouija board to hard, bed-rock mind-over-matter concentration. The horse even balks at sugary temptations.

And one could almost bet fifty cents that the Navy will play Washington In the Rose Bowl ■son January first. The football fan has been led a merry, dizzy pace through the news that Syracuse will play U. S. C., ■---„ will play Washington Dec. 25th in the Coliseum; Syracuse won’t play anyone; U. S. C. declines to play at all; California won’t play; Navy backs down, Washington does not know what to do, etc., etc., etc. But it now seems settled that the game is as good as on. Navy has renewed its declaration that it will play Washington, and further it has sent a communication to that school urging them to accept the Rose Bowl, engagement for New Year’s Day. The only thing to make the contest an absolute certainty is the receipt here of the Northern faculty’s endorsement, said to be already given.

And it looked for a time that the Navy would turn the game down but having an immense respect for the Northern school, they have welcomed the substitute opponent. Southern California supporters received somewhat of a setback in hopes when, after wishfully believ-] ing their school would meet Syracuse on Christmas day. the faculty committee, with the endorsement of representative students and Coach Henderson, decided it would not be a good plan to tackle the Eastern team. However, U. S. C.’s attitude was quite understood by the authorities promoting the game, when it was explained by the local committee that, since U. S. C. just played Penn State the first of last year, it would be a hazardous procedure to place the amateur athletic standing of several of the Tr >-jan players in jeopardy by playing in two such games within one year. It was felt that, should several U. S. C.’s first string players play against Syracuse—and that would (CONTINUED ON PAGE 4) Professor Harley to Speak On the Student Movement in America .
