THE WOODWARD TATTLER
BEARS UNABLE TO
OPEN BALL SEASON
Team Will Receive Batting
Practice In Preparation
For Coming Games
Woodward's Bears were un-
able to begin their baseball sea-
son this week because of a steady
downpour of rain. The team
should have met Scott on Tues-
day and Waite on Thursday.
The team will receive some
batting practice on Saturday in
preparation for the two games
next week. The team encountered
Libbey at their diamond Tues-
day, and Central here on Thurs-
day. Libbey is said to have an-
other strong team and so has
Central, but both teams will
have to do some slugging to keep
up with the Bears.
Bevan practically has his first
nine picked already. Katafias,
who will be at first, is a real slug-
ger. Weisberg at second has some
sandlot experience. Kokocinski
will be shortstop while Zaremb-
ski or Kryzyzanowski will be at
third. His outfield will be com-
posed of Maur, Kudlinski, and
The batteries are the two most
important defense men on the
team. According to Grantland
Rice, nationally known sport
writer, the pitcher is 27 per cent
of a team's defense and the
catcher is next,
Jaworski will be on the mound
for the hard task while Pawlicki
or Friedman will be behind the
RAIN STOPS INDOOR
LEAGUE FROM PLAY
The intra-mural indoor league
can't agree with the weather so
they can't get going. The teams
played one game last week and
were rained out all this week.
Looking over the teams the
Puieper club has a chance to
climb over the Machine Shop,
which is leading the league, when
they beat the Pica club last
The pitching staffs ofthe teams
consist of some good hurlers.
Charles Segal can fan by the
batters with great skill.
Jianiak, who pitches for the
freshman and Planers club, can
also bench most men that come
Fraser, Crzanowski and Kim-
melman, pitchers for sopho-
mores, juniors and seniors, re-

Boosters' Club Annual Picnic
To Be Held At Devils' Lake
Boosters' club will hold its
second annual picnic at Devils'
Lake June 6. Although a definite
program of entertainment is to
be arranged later, it is certain
that a weiner roast will climax
the activities of the day.
BEARS, IRISH MEET
IN OPENING MATCH
First City Sched Tilt Slated
For Ottawa, Good Golfing
Woodward golf team will play
its first game on the 193 1 city
schedule when it meets the Cen-
tral Catholic golfers in a match
at Ottawa Park this afternoon.
Good golf is anticipated as Cen-
tral has always been noted for
its teams and the Bears have a
group of veterans who showed
some class last year.
The Central team, which won
the city championship and then
proceeded to take the state high
school crown last year, will be
handicapped by the loss of four
of its players due to ineligibility
Mr. Phipps, Woodward golf
coach, has not announced the
lineup he will place against Cen-
tral, but it is sure to be a veteran
team. The Bears have Ralph
Gale as captain and Frank Molik,
stars of last year's squad. Wood-
ward will also have Wasserman,
Rosinzki, and Woodfil of the 1930
team, and Kalinowski, Hoobler,
Dart, and Boyer who have been
showing enough form to warrant
a place on this year's team.

Defiance relays which will be
held tomorrow. Libbey, Scott,
Waite, and Woodward track squads will attend.
The inter-class meet, which was won by the juniors, proved to
be a scource of material for the coach. Kimmelman starred with two
firsts and being on the winning relay team, he took honors in the
100 and 220 yd. dashes. Warden won first in the 120 yd. low

Adoption of Stu de nt Ticket
Formation of a Woodward
Boosters' Club in the community.
Restriction of membership in all
Firm establishment of a student
I Q i
Woodward can boast of one
organization that no other school
in the city equals-the Royal
Woodwardite Orchestra. These
musicians were organized by Mr.
L. C. Clark and have worked hard
and faithfully during the past
year. They have not only furnish-
ed music for dances and innumer-
able social functions, thus sav-
ing the school money, but have
taken a big step toward uniting
the students into a more friend-
It seems the least that can be
done is to give the orchestra
members a prominent place on
the stage during Recognition Day
services, in order that they be
given their share of honor due
them for their services.
O C O
. The Sophomores have been
active all t h r o u g h the year
sponsering many affairs. One
commendable p o l i c y of their
activities has been the fact that
they always make it a school
affair. The Royal Woodwardite
Orchestra played for all their
dances, Mr. Hugh Montgomery
and his printing classes have
done all their printing, Miss Ma-
rie J . Doering directed the Soph-
omore play and many others are
entitled to share in the success
of the class activities. The Soph-
PRI CIPAL POINTS
By Mr. LaRue
. Next week we have the opportunity to give again to
,X 1' the Community Chest. . . i .
This is a project that touches every individual in
A f,,,, ,I Toledo, no matter what his creed, color or social position.
2 1 The Chest furnishes a huge budget for taking care of our
ij less fortunate citizens. It is not a perfect plan, but it is
' practicable and is far superior to any scheme that has so
far been attempted, to care for our needy people.
Thousands of people are today alive and on the road to a new
prosperity because funds from the Chest have been available to
help them in their adversity.
The need this year is greater than ever before. Don't knock
this magnificent project. Any thing that has contributed to the
comfort of time poor and suffering is deserving of our heartiest sup-
port. Let's ll, the 1931 Chest to overflowing.
DVERTISING pays" is a slo'g n that has been used any num-
ber of times and itfseems tmt many organizations believe
in it. At least, judglngnfrom the advertising literature sent
out by colleges to seniors in hmhuschoolmzl this time of the year,
the institution of learning believe in it. ether or not it is good
policy for colleges to advertise so elctensively cannot be said, but
the flood of pamphlets should help to- choose the school that will
give the individual the type of education wanted.
Most of the advertising literature deals with college life in
general. Therefore, if one school is ahead of the others in athletics
and social affairs many students will be attracted by that phase of
college. Since a person expects to spend a great part of his time
there during the next four years it is natural that all these things
should be considered. Education is more than just acquiring tech-
nical knowledge, and a college that has a great deal of prestige is
desirable. However, such schools are not always the best to attend.
Many students are not qualified for such institutions, others
would have to change their course in order to attend and for vari-
ous other reasons colleges that seem particularly attractive are
not suitable. Therefore, in deciding which school to attend let's
give consideration to every detail and not be influenced by cleverly
written accounts of only one side of the question. A good plan
would be to find a college that will answer your needs, rather than
to adjust yourself to fit the college.

prize from this renowned com-
pany hereby follows. Miss Louise

correctly answered, "six." Enu-
merate them, asked the teacher.
"One, two, three, four, five, six,"
was the brilliant response.

And then in Geometry, Mr.
Rike asked John King, "How
long is a piece of of string?" And
the scholarly reply was, "Yes,l
Another prize winner was the
one submitted by Mr. Bitter. He
asked Al Rozinski, one of his star
students, "What makes wheels
round?" and Al responded "Be-
cause they are round and if any-
thing is round it's almost sure
to go round in the same way in
which it is round and if it was
not round it wouldn't go round."
