to the members of tho class at retail
prices. It Is not expected, however,

against tire class can no raised in this '
way, and new suggestions will he re

abundance of thi-i quality so far this
year. Still other members of the class
(irtiio a 1 lass play or some such func

Basketball Game With Gophers
May be Played January 21.
A tentative dute for a game of bas
ketball with the University of Minne
sota, has been made by Manager Boers
lor January 21st, In Minneapolis. II
games ca.i be scheduled en route to do
fray part of the expenses and warrant
our accepting Minnesota's proposition,
we will meet the Gophers on that date.
With the lesson learned Friday even
ing lu the game against Highland Parl
marked- im.roemcnt should begin to
be apparent from now on. .Our for
wards will have to learn how to hang
on to swift passes, for to tho fumbling
ot these swift throws are due many of
the failures to score Friday night.
Whether or not our long swift passes,
il handled properly, aro more effective
than the short pass used by Highland
Pnrk is still a question. A combination
of the two ought to be thtybeM, and
the short pass, at the side lines, where
thete Is more open space and less
chaiKc of blocking should ho .rac
tlced more.
