Faculty Volley Ball Game
One of Big Features
Last Wednesday evening the University gymnasium was the scene of
a most successful athletic carnival,
the purpose of which was to raise
money for the athletic fund. The
eram was vare,l interesting, and well
prepared, consisting of boxing, wrestling, games, dances and music.
First on the program was Mr. Bart-let- t,
who amazed his audience by his
daring work on the high bar. Among
his stunts were the "fly away" and
the "giant swing" which are seldom
seen outside of a professional performance. Later on he gave an exhibition of .his prowess on the parallel
bars and was equally as good at this
as his former act.
A wrestling match between Benson
and Magregor was the. next feature.
The time allowed for this match was
eight minutes, and the two heavy
weights grappled with each other until the time was up, without either
man winning a decision.
Margaret Parrish, in a quaint,
dress, delighted the audience with her dancing of "Dixie."
This dainty little lady, as she danced
to that good old southern tune, completely won the admiration of all who
saw her, and she is Justly deserving
