Coach Bob Bell has had a hard problem on his hands in selecting the five men to take the floor for the opening whistle. Two teams have been showing fine ability to score in all the workouts to date. The team Planning For Holiday Mail Rush The local post office is busy as usual at this time of year planning to handle the large amount of Christmas letters and packages sent at holiday time, and the coopera­ tion of the public is asked that there may be no delay in deliveries. The necessity for early mailing i has been so thoroughly explained in ' the past that it seems unnecessary to stress this point again. Orders from the department arjp that every postal employee shall not be re­ quired to perform any service on Christmas day, but that the 350,000 postal employees may spend the) w,hole day with their families, a privilege which th«|r are surely en­ titled to. I The service at the post office will Extra clerks, carriers and trucks have • already been engaged to handle the increased, volume of mail, and with the earnest cooperation of the public in mailing early so as to avoid a last minute congestion, there should be no delays. The* personnel of the local post office pledges tiieif very best efforts to perform thifc big task to the limit of their ability.

Until recently Calcutta was the capital of India and home of the viceroy and the government house is its finest building. It consists of a spacious central structure sur­ rounded with four great wings and surmounted by a magnificent dome. Calcutta has six or seven colleges, under government control, the ac­ quirements of whose students equal those of European universities. The commerce of a large pro­ portion of India centers in Cal­ cutta and its foreign trade is main­ ly in the hands of English mer­ chants. The portion of the city occupied by foreign residents and wealthy natives is built in palatial magni- ficance in strong contrast to the squalid condition of the poor quar­ ters. The fine post office building stands on the site of the horribly famous \Black Hole of Calcutta,\ where 146 men of the garrison were captured and locked in this dun­ geon, 18 feet square, with only two small windows, and all but 23 were dead the next morning. Mrs. Sutfin described the wonder­ ful parks in one of which a famous banyan tree—which trees are re­ markable for their strange growth and great age. They are not lofty trees but their horizontal branches send down slender fibers which take root and become other trunks. The Calcutta banyan has over 200 trunks and is 1,000 feet in circum­ ference.
