PROFESSOR FREEMAN MEMORIAL SPEAKER Professor Stephen s Freeman addressed the college in the chapel service Armistice Day. He pointed out the ease with which we overlook the horrors of the Great W< i, never to be forgotten by men Who served in France.

He continued: "Death is not the only means of ■ " i iiii • . I hi o-m is not a single act but months of enduring the hell of War. This means submission to the humdrum, weary conditions that war nts.

Band Accompanies Team To Burlington Quick work by Willi, im Gazdagh '29 enabled the Band to accompany the team to Burlington on Saturday. Following the rally Friday night there was such a demand for the presence of the band lat the game, that Mr. Gazdagh circulated a subscription paper and engaged a truck for conveyance of the members and their instruments. The Middlebury musicians made i particularly good showing during the contest. Between the halves the R. O. T. C. band of Vermont ancl the Middlebury i'i rid marched to the east end of the field Where in combined formation they marched to the center of the field and played the "Loyalty March" and The Star Spangled Banner." Together the bands consisted of one hundnd piedes. The .Middlebury band then marched to the center of the Vermont si md nd played the Vermont ilma mater, "Champlain," alter Which the Vermont band played "<: i- rnaliel Painter's Cane" in front of the Middlebury cheering section Both binds have been under the direction of Mr. Joseph F.

This year's Sophomore Hop. which is to be given Nov. 23, at tbe Middlebury Inn, gives promise of being the most successful affair of its kind. From the arrangements made by the committee, a most delightful evening can be expected by those who attend The class of 1930 has engaged the ball-room of the Middlebury Inn for the occasion, and in doing so has secured practically the finest place of its kind in 'Xew England. A large floor in excellent condition, combined with a beautiful and stately Colonial atmosphere, renders the Inn very inviting for formal dances. The Junior Prom of last spring proved a great success, due largely co the fact that it was held there. The committee has secured, 'it a great deal of expense, the services of Wittstein's Victor Recording Orchestra of New Haven, Conn This group ■of harmonizers 'has played for proms at Yale, Brown, Vassar, Wellesley, Sm.ith, Boston University. M. I. T., and many other eustern colleges and universities. In every instance it has met with nothing but the most favorable criticism. At Yale, especially, Wittstein has proved to lie a great favorite, playing there at the most important soei'.il functions, year after year. The music that such a highlj approved orchestra can afford will make the Hop .in affair to be eagerly anticipated and later remembered with pleasure. During the course of the ball a novelty dance is planned. The couples will dance as per program and the leader of the orchestra will call each couple, land as they are called they will leave the floor, tbe last couple remaining will receive an appropriate prize. During intermission the management of thc Inn will serve refreshments. Programs for the dance have not been given out yet. Tbe committee is withokling a description of them from publication, but something new md unique is promised. They bid their own artist plan and design the cover. Tickets for the dance have been fairly well sold out. The few that are left may be obtained from the various members of the committee or can be reserved by dilling Val .1 Goltry at the D. K. E. house. PANTHER LOSES TO OLD RIVAL AFTER HARD FIGHT Vocational Guidance Committee Meets Edgar C.

The faculty, at a meeting held last Thursday afternoon, voted to adopt several recommendations of the curriculum committee relative to whole ■and half year courses ancl preannounced tests. The most important change is that which provides that preannouncing tests include only those which require the major portion of the period. The adopted recommendations, in full, are as follows: Courses designated as year courses shal have no final examination listed a.t the close of the first semester and final examinations will he given at that time only in semester courses and in such other cases as shall be provided for by special action of the administration committee. In view of the fact that this interpretation of the year course rule may not have been understood when such courses were designated, the faculty is asked to immediately notify the Registrar as to how their courses shall be designated, so that announcement may be made to the students and work be begun on the mid-year examination schedule. In attendance rule ft (a), on page 8 of the Regulations of Middlebury College, the words "preannounced test" will be interpreted to me in tests for which at least the major pontion of a period is allowed and which would normally occur not oftener than once in three weeks. All such tests should be announced to the respective classes and to the Deans at least one week in idvance of the day When they are to i"' given. ALPHA MU OT CHI PSI TO HAVE XEW LODGE Plans for the new Chi Psi Lodge, recently completed by B. X.

(By D. FRANCIS HOWE) In a game which was a fight all the way, the Green and Gold defeated Middlebury on Centennial Field, Burlington. Saturday. Vermont showed unexpected strength and although .practically all the breaks of the game really deserved to win. The old saying that comparative scores meant nothing when these old rivals cume together, was certainly proved Saturday. Only in the last quarter did the Panthers outplay their opponents. In this period the Blue showed 'her only real form. After a march down the field from her own 22 yard line, Palmer went over for our only touchdown and Webber added the 'point from placement. The Vermont backfield ran wild aided by the fine work of their fast charging line which opened up hole after hole through which the backs slipped for long gains. Estabrook at quarter and Conway at half, gave fine exhibitions of broken-field running. In the line, Winehenbach, Sirois, and Levine played great games and stopped the Middlebury Ibacks time after time on line of scrimmage. For Middlebury, Palmer at end played a great game. His tackling was hard and sure. Time and again, when he could not possibly get the runner, he piled up the interference, leaving the man with the ball to the secondary defense. In the second quarter, he showed pretty work, when after rushing in amd being supposedly picked off by a protecting halfback, he succeeded in blocking Smith's punt. He was ulso on the receiving end of a beautiful pass which vent for Panther's longest g^ain. The Blue ancl White backfield deserves plenty of credit for their fine defensive work. Johnson, at 'half, made tackle after tickle as did Hinman, Guarnaccia and Gollnick. All through the game Johnson stood out with his great tackling. Guarnaccia at full, gained much ground on his line bucking, and it was he who set .Middlebury's 'hopes high when he intercepted Smith's pass in the third period and ran 30 yards before being- forced out of bounds on Vermont's 4 3 yard murk. These hopes were short lived however, because a few- moments later, Conway snatched a pass almost off the ground, which Palmer juggled and dropped, almost into tbe Vermonter's hands. Hinman. Jones. Palmer, Gollnick, and Hendrix in their last game for the Blue and White, all put up a fine game, flght- ing every minute. In the kicking department Huntington and Smith were about even, both getting oft several punts for more thi m tio yards. Smith kicked one which went over 70 yards. The strong wind hampered both kickers during parts of the game. Vermont opened the scoring in the first period on lheir first break. After the Blue bad received the ball on a (Continued on page 3) Attention Juniors }lrs. Vantine arrived yesterday to Hike orders for Junior pictures.
