Notre lame proved the largest
drawing card, prolil.s from the game
being more than $2,000 in excess of
the .Missouri purse which was the
next highest. The homecoming clash
at Missouri drew larger crowds than

pointment. Hut for the extreme cold
and snow on Thanksgiving day, the
llusker authorities feel confident that
the Notre Dame total would have
been topped. The easterners also
were disappointed, evidently, linan-

financial policy of the athletic de

in keeping with this custom the class
of 1020 yesterday afternoon enter

the afternoon period.
The program was opened by Mari

th.ese voung ladies displayed the
erearest talent and skill in their of
fering. This was followed by a read
ir-.g by Miss Huth Jacks, which wa
-til-i- ..neored ;iud re-ponded to
by another pleading recitation. Mis?
V.ihle T.ee 'onenhaver gave a vocal
number during the course of the pro
mam that was much enjoyed and as
si-ted in her select inn by Mason Wos
cott as pianist and Miss Whelan on
the violin. One of the fun produc
ini2 features of the program was the
humorous paper prepared by Mi.-
( arla ISrandt and which was read by
Miss Henrietta YVaintroub. and
which the different members of the
class were given a mention that
brought out much merriment and
laughter from the audience and
especially the class membership.
The final stunt of the program was
the visitation of Santa Clans to the
members of the faculty and for each
teacher there was a well filled stock
ing which was overflowing with
good advice but little more.
The formal program was conclud
ed bv President Duxbury who thank
ed the members of the faculty and
the school for their assistance and
interest taken in the program, and
this brought to a close a very pleas
ant afternoon and the commencement
of the holiday reason for the young

thing I wanted!"
