Lund was back to his stride on the floor, and to his generalship in directing the game. The score ended 49-2- 0 for Dixie. In the third game, that with Beaumont, Texas, the Dixie five were able to step to the victorious tune of All the boys were working better in this game, especially Empey who was able to intercept the overhand passes and deliver the ball into the hands of the Dixie team. In the game with Waterloo, Iowa, the Utah five almost met their Waterloo. The game was a bull fight from start to finish. It was fought within the 41-1- 9. neutral territory, neither team being able to carry the ball on to its own end of the floor. Most of the baskets were made by long shots. At the close of the fourth quarter the score wasatie at 13 points. The five minute period to end the tie was scarely started when a foul was called on Fawcett. The Waterloo player was able to ringone only of the two throws, thus placing his team one point in the lead. Fawcett, having four personal fouls against him, was replaced by Cox. Cox entered the play like a mad bull. The ball was in the Waterloo territory. He made a dive through the defensive, secured the ball and dribbled it near the Dixie ring, passing it to Lund who sent it on to program was rendered and where reports of the trip and the games was given by Coach Chester Whitehead and by D.

As they drove into town, headed by the Dixie College band and some twenty or twenty five cars which had met them on the road to escort them home, they were greeted by the cheers of hundreds of students and townspeople who had gathered to welcome them. It was a sight that thrilled the heart of every citizen to see the team driven into town with five basket balls hanging from the side of the car' representing the five teams that had met defeat at the hands of the Dixie boys. Immediately upon the arrival of the team the students and townspeople assembled in the Tabernacle, where a very fitting NUMBER 10. I4 I I 4 .

The number was thoroughly enjoyed. His pictures of the Great Literary Men are the kind that live on in the memory, long after the words of the lecturer are forgotten. His portrayal of Victor Hugo on his eightieth birthday was perhaps his favorite. Of the humorous representations, Mark Twain making his birthday speech was popular.
