Marsh, of Texas Chris- tian University, held the spot- light as he upheld the old style regulations concerning the pay- ing of athletes. ' "It's O.

Style Show at Loeb's Miss Betty Duncan, manager of Loeb's, has announced, to the interests of the fashion lovers, that a fashion show will be pre- sented here Wednesday after- noon at four o'clock. Five lovely madamoiselles from Gay Paree will be the model artists, Misses Fox, Guirl, Zeigler, Burkholder, and Lloyd. Not that we mistrust Loeb's statement, but that list sounds like the roll call of the class of '39 at W. L. H. S. to us. Yates-Ramsey Circus Enters Winter Quarters Peru, Ind.
