SCOTT AND GROW SHINE ON ALL-STAR TEAM SHENANDOAH COLLEGE On Tuesday, January 11, the Rats opened their season by winning from Shenandoah College by a score of 30- 24. Although it was their first game, and they played a bit ragged at times, the Rats showed plenty of fight and at all times held the lead. The score was close throughout and Shenandoah came dangerously close to tying the score on several occasions. Scott and McCray led the point scorers for the Rats, while Chambers played well for Shenandoah. The summary: V. M. I. Rats (30) Shenandoah (24) Scott Chambers R. F. Schmitz Crouch L. F.

Jack had served the class for the past two and a half years exceptionally well as vicepresident and a better man for the presidency would be hard to find. To fill the vacancy of vice-presidency Bill Morgan, formerly historian, was elected. Morgan, whose home is in Washington, D. C., has been very active in his work on the class Finance Committee.

The rat boxing team showed up extremely well last Friday night by defeating S. M. A. by a score of 5 to 2. 1 The meet as a whole waB a pleasant surprise to everyone, as it showed that there is excellent material and real talent upon which to build a team next year. The first bout of the evening was in the 115-pound class, between Russell of A. M. A. and Mclntoch of V. M. I. Mcintosh put up a good fight, but the bout went to S. M. A. Noted Englishman Speaks; Tells Cadets of Facism Ainslie Praises Government of Massolini and Effects of Facism On Italy. IS TOURING U. S. TO COL- LECT MATERIAL FOR NEW BOOK Extolling the virtues of Facism and the power of the regime of Mussolini in Italy, Mr. Douglas Grant Duff Ainslie, well known English poet and philosopher, delivered an interesting address before the two upper classes in the Jackson Memorial Hall last Friday. Mr. Ainslie is an expert in the use of the Spanish, Italian, and French languages. He has published several volumes of poems and his work in philosophy is notable. He is also a diplomat, being attached to the English Embassy in Paris for a number of years, and having resided in Italy for some time, he is well acquainted with the situation there. He is at present touring the United States, collecting material for a new book on his impressions of this country. Mr. Ainslie gave a picture of the inner workings of Mussolini's government, and his obvious policy of a rule by the few. He declared that it was not only a militaristic government, but one based upon the spiritual side of Facism, and predicted a struggle between this element and that of the Roman Catholic church in the near future. Italy was in the toils of communism when Mussolini stepped in and gave it Facism. Of humble birth, he has risen gradually to absolute power, putting in force a unique policy for labor control by local arbitration, (Continued on Page Eight) MIDWINTERS NEXT FRIDAY AND SATURDAY Kike Kyser of North Carolina University Will Play. DANSANT SAT. AFTERNOON The Mid-Winter Hops, which always serve as a timely break in the monotony of the post Christmas season, will be next Friday and Saturday, February 4 and 5. They are predicted to eclipse all that have gone before. To support this premonition are the enviable reputation of the orchestra and the unique character of the decorations—to say nothing of the charm of the elusive sex which always plays so formidable a part. (Continued on Pace Five) RAT WRESTLERS TAKE MEET FROM AUGUSTA Saturday afternoon the Rat Wrestling team won its initial meet, defeating the team from Augusta Military Academy by a score of 21 to 8.

C. "Bill" Raftery, who has ably assisted in coaching major sports at V. M. I. for the last five years.

The 21st of February has been set as the date for the Dramatic Club's FLYING SQUADRON DROPS FIVE OF FIRST SEVEN COURT GAMES Richmond, Elon, N. C. State, Virginia, and V. P. I. Score Close Victories. GAMES FEATURED BY WORK OF HARNER, BISHOP AND BRIDGEWATER COLLEGE B. FULKERSON In the opening game of the season on Jan. 8 the Flying Squadron finally succeeded in taking a victory from Bridgewater College, to the tune of 31 to 25. This is the first time that V. M. I. has ever succeeded in breaking the "Bridgewater jinx," Bridgewater having copped the three previous opening games. Working like one machine, the Squadron displayed a far better brand of basketoall than has been offered for a few years. The passing seemed to be timed better, and the shooting to be divided among the team as a whole, rather than depending on one man, as in previous years. B. Fulkerson was high-point man, but individual stars were lacking, and the whole team played well. Bridgewater put up a good game, particularly in the second half, but their rally fell short. Captain Glick, Payne, and Cuppe played very well throughout the entire game, Glick falling only one point short of Fulkerson, while Payne ran the floor excellently. The summary: V. M. I. (31) Bridgewater (25) Fulkerson, B Cuppe R. F. Harner Leavel L. F. Bellenger (C. ) Payne C. Mondy Glick (C.) R. G. Bishop Garst L. G. Substitutions—V. M. I.: A. Fulkerson for B. Fulkerson, Frost for Bellinger, Hewlett for Frost, Frost for Mondy. Field goals—B. Fulkerson 5, Harner 4, Bellinger 2, Mondy 3, Cuppe 2, Leavel 1, Payne 3, Glick 5. Foul goals—B. Fulkerson (2 in 6), Harner (1 in 5), Mondy (0 in 1), Cuppe (1 in 1), Payne (1 in 3), Glick (1 in 3). Referee—Lambert. Time of halves—20 minutes. VARSITY GR4PPLERS DOWN FRANKLIN AND MARSHALL Take Four of Seven Bouts For 14 1-2 To 12 1-2 Victory. FIELDS THROWS OPPONENT IN 175 POUND CLASS The varsity wrestling team officially opened the season on January 8th with a hard fought victory over Franklin and Marshall, 14 1-2 to 12 1-2. This was the first meeting between the grappling Cadets and the Pennsylvanians and the contest was undecided until the last few minutes. Through aggressiveness and skill Coach Player's men proved superior, although they were not in RICHMOND UNIVERSITY On the following Wednesday V. M. 1. bowed before the fast Richmond University team to the score of 48 to 23. Though the score looks as if it might have been a runaway for the Richmond team, it was far from it. The Squadron showed plenty of their well known fight, but it seemed that their opponents couldn't miss the basket. The first half was close and hard fought with Richmond slightly in the lead. However, in the second half the game slowed up a bit on both sides, neither team displaying their best brand of basketball. For V. M. I. Harner seemed to be the only man who could get his eye on the basket. "Slick" had six baskets to his credit, and ran the floor in excellent style. Bishop also turned in an excellent game at guard, being the cause of more than one march down the floor turning into a rout. For Richmond both T. Sanford and Peterson seemed to be unable to miss a shot, and ran the floor superbly as well. Captain Demotte also ran the floor well and added three field goals to his average. The summary: V. M. I. (23) Richmond (48) Fulkerson, B T. Sanford R. F. Harner Peterson L. F. Bellinger (C.) Demotte (C.) C. Mondy Caskins R. G. Bishop Bell L. G. Substitutions—V. M. I.: McGloane for Fulkerson, B., Frost for Bellenger. Richmond: Ragozzino for T. Sanford, N. Sanford for Peterson, Flemming for Bell. Field goals—Harner 6, Bellinger 2, Frost 1, T. Sanford 8, Peterson 8, Demotte 3, Gaskins 1, Flemming 1. Foul goals—Fulkerson, B.

Alumni Hall, the scene of the Hop, lacked nothing as a setting for such an informal dance. Some sixty Cadets, including members of the Monogram Club, who were guests of the First Class, were in attendance. An unusually large number ol beautiful girls made the dance a well balanced affair, a feature so
