score. 'These “ladies” turned out to be
our own basketball boys.

FROM SPRAINED ANKLE
Miss Ida Belle Moore sprained her
ankle 'Tliursday evening, March 18, while
practicing for the game between the fac
ulty and students. 'The sprain was seri
ous enough to put her on crutches for a
few days. She was back on the job Fri
day at school but was unable to go to
the game Friday night. On Monday
Miss Moore was still on crutches and said
that she felt so discouraged that she
never expected to walk without them.
In her classes she has to sit in one place
all during the class, but the students
sympathize with her and try to do their
part to help her. “Here’s hoping you’ll
soon recuperate. Miss Moore,” is the
message one hears ringing out from
Room 12 at all intervals during the day.
