It is es timated that at least two hun dred thousand Japanese troops are now facing MacArthur. The enemy has landed troops near Australia in the Island of New Guinea and others near by.

The first tournament will be held at Appalachian State at Boone, North Carolina, Febru ary 5-7. Both men and women will participate, but in separate divisions.

The second tournament they enter is the annual Smoky Mountain Men's at Tusculum College, Greenville, Tennessee, on February 14. This is a very excellent tournament with twelve or fourteen teams and the usual events. On the some date is the Smoky Mountain Women's Tourney at Virginia Interment, Bristol, Virginia. Poetry reading will be another feature of the program. Another important event on the fourteenth will be the state convention at Greensboro, in which Edith Floyd, vice-presi dent of the Young Republicans Club of North Carolina, wil participate. The debaters for these meet ings have not yet been chosen. Mr. Huff, coach of public speaks ing, says that all debaters must work up a new query.

For instance, Calvin Stringfield was the only summa cum laude graduate at Wake Forest in June of this past year. All of which means that for his entire stay at Wake Forest Calvin has averaged over ninety-five for his honors, which, translated into your language and mine means "With highest praise." Being summa cum laude at any col lege is no mean feat as these last exams have just shown, because it means straight "A's" all the way through. Calvin, not content with ordi nary grades, had to make his in the Wake Medical School. Eugene Brissie, who is Bob's brother, has just finished a fine piece of work on Wake Forest's Old Gold and Black".
