many girls are walking. With eyes

Besides working briskly, the girls
who once panted over a stroll
find time and energy to play soccer
and tennis for long, hard hours.
They conscientiously keep count of
the number of glasses of water they
drink daily, the number of hours
they sleep nightly and the number
of colds they have weakly.
Should they lag in their efforts
they have two incentives to urge
them on and make them take new
courage. One, and foremost, is the
thought of that handsome loving cup
now in the possession of the Sopho
mores. Eaeli class is hoping to own
it for a while.
Then another thing which will in
spire a number of the most obese
maidens, is the idea that moderate
eating and much exercise are sure toi
bring about a reduction.
It is our firm belief that, through

SO IT SEEMS

And says, “W^e’re going to the dogs.”
His granddad in his home of logs
Swore things were going to the dogs.
The caveman in liis queer skin togs
Said, “Things are going to the dogs.”

“BY SOOCIIPW!' WATERS”
An old Chinese garden gay with
hrilliant-plumed birds, and multi
colored flowers; lanterns dro|iping
from trees covered with foamy eher-
blossoin.s—all this is a bit of
Sooehow, old in years, in tradition
and custom, but still young in its
Chinese h. art.
In such an atmosphere Louise
Jordan Miln places her latest novel,
‘By Sooehow W'aters.” Mrs. Miln
is known to thousands of readers as
a writer thoroughly familiar with
and sym])atlietic with her subject,
China. Here wc find the old, old
’ of an inter-raeial love told in
w way. For the first time in a
way. For the first time an Eng
lish girl sees and knows a Chinese
:ntlenian of the old regime. In
tensely interesting in every way the
' winds its thread in all conceiv
able plaee.s—down the water of a
turquoise lake which the slowly
moon turns to silver; into
temples whose walls depict
■s of centuries past; at .smart
functions of the English colony; in
the ancient courtyards of mandarins’
palaces; in those fascinating out-of-
vay little shops whose very por
tals breathe the exotic lure of the
orient, and through it all comes the
poignant, gay yet sad, lyric of an
ipossible love, it predominates, and
t at tlu' end—there is the inevit
able sacrifice. Man Ling returns to
his umpty courtyard for the time
weary of life Margaret returns to
England to sing again to the world
though her world is Man I.ing.
