Garber of Duke University will teach “The Spirit and Genius of Methodism.” There is also a course offered on “The Problem of the Small Sunday School,” or “How to Run a Small Sunday School.” These courses are up to the present age of thought and are of vital impor tance to all who are interested in Church and Sunday School work. When the school opens in January why not make the attendance for Rutherford one-hundred percent?

GRANT IS POSSESSOR OF VALUABLE ANIMAL Audrey Grant Has a $20,000 Cow Which Will Raise a Valuable Herd. KILLARNEY COLEENS APPEAR AT COLLEGE The Killarney Coleens were here some time ago. They were very entertaining and the trombone and readings were much enjoyed by the audience. There was a good crowd present and all were very recepitive, getting the most out of the evening of delightful enter tainment. Thieves stole a $400 painting from the University of California, leaving a Remibrandt worth $20,- 000 untouched. Which shows the importance of education. It was quite a pleasant s'urprise for the students of Rutherford College to learn that “Useless” Grant was the proud possessor of a $20,000 cow. This cow had tak en several prizes at various shows, but until this time she was not so well known. At the recent fair Grant’s cow took first prize in her class and immediately the owner was offered $20,000 for her. Grant says that he will not sell her, and that he is not afraid of her dying ■on his hands. He has her insur ed for the full amount, and is thereby protected against loss. It was with regret that we learn ed Qf Grant sickness last week, but we are glad to see him around the campus again. Americans spend $287,000,000 a year for soaip. There’s no little hoy in this country who couldn’t think of a better use for all that money. RUTHERFORD DOWNS MARS HILL IN GAME Rutherford kicks off to Mars Hill downing them on their (thirty yard line. The Blue Jackets fail to make a main and punt to the Ramblers, the ball being downed on the 50 yard line. Payne and Ward plunge through the line for first and ten. Payne runs again for first and ten. Smith makes a right efid for .first and ten. After the Ramblers had compl'-eted three censecutive first and tens the Blue Jackets intercepted a pass on their own twenty yard line and was downed on the liae.

According to the college Calen dar classes will discontinue work on December 21, Friday, at 12 M. for the Christmas holidays. Work will be rseumed at 8 A. M. Wed nesday, January 2. This allows eleven days absence from the scene of action. This is a time shorter than at most. colleges and universities, but it is occasioned by the prolonged Thanksgiving holi days. Students will remember that all cuts taken immediately pro ceeding and succeeding the holi days will count as double cuts. Pu pils will also remember that if there is over eight cuts in any one course, they will not be eligible for examination, and will therefore be debarred from credit on such HUNT SELECTED NEW NAME FOR RECORDER The Rutherford Rectangle Chosen As the Name to Re place The Recorder. The Rutherford Recorder is his tory now, for as you will see from the beau/tiful masthead on the front page a new name and mast head has been designed for the college paper — The Rutherford Rectangle, and it will henceforth be known by this name. This college publication is now in its third year and with this is sue adopts a third name. “The Ruitherford Breezes” was the style of the paper thru the first year of its existence. However, this name was not altogether satisfac tory and with the beginning of the second year the name was changed to “The Rutherford Recorder.” But this burensome and unattractive heading ceased to meet the re quirements to make the publica tion as neat, interesting and at tractive as it should be. Since the beginning of this school year a new name has been under discussion. It remained for Edwin B. Hunt, who hailed us this year from Reeds High School in Davidson county, to suggest the new name and design the masthead. The beautiful new masthead and name is an exact reprodutcion of the original drawing of Hunt, and is one that has met the keen approv al of the staff, the faculty, and the student body as a whole. To Hunt, who is considered one of the best all-round students on the cam pus, goes the honor of naming and designing The Rutherford Rectan gle- Trade with our advertisers. A group of students met the other night and organized a local Anninias Club. It seems that they arc making good headway. Charles Pinckney Roper was elected Presi dent and Lynn Loy polled over ''.aws for the Vice-Presidency. Fol lowing are the political speeches male by the candidates: Mr. Roper. (Editor’s Note: Mr. Roper has never been kno'vvn to' get out of a :inail’s gallop only when in contact wtih snakes; and the reader shall now have, in Pinckney’s own style, an account of his flight from a coach whip snake). “I had a hog claim over beyant Moor’s Fork, and I concluded I’d take old Bucksmasher (his rifle) and go inter the big hlckleberry patch, on Round Hill, in sarch for ’um. Off I trolloped, and toddled about for some time, but couldn’t find head nur tail uv ’im. But while I was moseyin’ about, I cuni right chug upon one uv the big gest, longest, outdaciousest coach- whip snakes luver laid my peep ers on. He reared right straight up, like a May-pole, licked out his tarnacious tongue, and good as said, “Here’s at you, sir. What bizness have you on my grit?” Now I’d heam folks say ef you’d look a vinimus animal right plumb in the eyes he wouldn’t hurt you. Now I tried it good, just like I were trying to look through a mill stone. But, bless you, honey! he had no more respect fur a man’s face and eyes than he had fur a huckleberry, sure’s as a gun’s iron. So I seed clearly that I’d have to try my trotters. I dashed down old Bucksmasher, and jumped ’bout ten steps the fust leap, and on I went wnsser nur an old buck fur ’bout a quarter, and turned my noggin round to look for the critter. Jehu Nimshi! there he were right dab at my heels, head up, tongue out, and read as a nail-rod, and his eyes like two (Continued on fifth page) CHICAGO CONCERT CO. FEATURES AT SCHOOL The Rutherford Rectangle Chosen As the Name to Re place The Recorder. The Chicago Concert Company rendered a very excellent program here some few weeks ago which was very entertaining and amus ing. The program consisted of musical selections, a reading, and an act in costume. We were very fortunate in se curing this high class entertain ment. It was possible on account of the fact that their schedule was open on this night and their ser vices were secured at much below their regular price.
