from a Reporter's Notebook By JEAN OSTBY PATTER BY HOLVIK ANDERSONS, FITTEST NEKOMA WINS COAT-ATION "When he smiles he uses a lot of face," the remark included in Patter in the Readers' Digest for January was spoken by Concordia's Prof. J. A. Hoivik. The gen tleman who col-lected the reward was that shrewd observer, Rolf Aaseng. Calvin Anderson refuses to be discouraged about the number of people with tne same surname as his. He merely dismisses any unkind remarks with. "Well, you've heard, haven't you, of the survival of the fittest?" To simplify the orgy of signing guest books at the Grose hall open house, one visitor brought his rubber stamp. Far neater, legible and distinctive than other autographs was the "D. C. Jesperson" which appeared on each book. "Nekoma Wins Second in District" were the headlines on "The Trojan", Nekoma high school paper for March 10, 1038. Placed on the bulletin board of The Concordian office by its editor, at that time, Irwln Sholy, (the paper relates ihe startling defeat of the Osna-brock high school "powerful and highly rated team" by the "classy, scrappy, Nekoma quint" In the district tourney.) Guard for the Nekoma Trojans was Sholy while Harold Poier and Harley Nelson led the Osnabrock Orioles. What made the defeat bitter, says Poier, was the fact that they defeated Nekoma by 18 point two weeks before.

PATTER BY HOLVIK
"When he smiles he uses a lot of
face," the remark included in Patter
in the Readers' Digest for January
was spoken by Concordia's Prof. J. A.
Hoivik. The gen tleman who col-lected
the reward was that shrewd
observer, Rolf Aaseng.
Calvin Anderson refuses to
be discouraged about the number
of people with tne same surname
as his. He merely dismisses
any unkind remarks with. "Well,
you've heard, haven't you, of
the survival of the fittest?"
To simplify the orgy of signing
guest books at the Grose hall open
house, one visitor brought his rubber
stamp. Far neater, legible and
distinctive than other autographs
was the "D. C. Jesperson" which
appeared on each book.
"Nekoma Wins Second in
District" were the headlines on
"The Trojan", Nekoma high
school paper for March 10, 1038.
Placed on the bulletin board of
The Concordian office by its
editor, at that time, Irwln
Sholy, (the paper relates ihe
startling defeat of the Osna-brock
high school "powerful
and highly rated team" by the
"classy, scrappy, Nekoma quint"
In the district tourney.)
Guard for the Nekoma Trojans
was Sholy while Harold Poier and
Harley Nelson led the Osnabrock
Orioles. What made the defeat
bitter, says Poier, was the fact that
they defeated Nekoma by 18 point
two weeks before.
