"Out of curiosity I tried a pair of
Neslin Soles,'' writes W. P. Macartney
of St. Louis, "and today, after five
months of hard service I fail to notice
Any real signs of wear on them."
This statement points the way to
real economy in shoes. What your
shoes cost, by the year, depends largely
on how the soles wear and Neolin Soles
do wear a very long time. Moreover,
they are exceedingly comfortable and
waterproof—scientifically made to be
exactly what soles should be and so
worn now by millions.
They are available everywhere on
new shoes and for re-soling. They are
made by The Goodyear Tire & Rub

make Wingfoot Heels, guaranteed to
outwear any other heels.

Penn basketball five overwhelmed
Princeton by the score of 3 7 to 21.
By this victory the Red and Blue
team went into the lead in the In

Tiger live into a tie with Yale for
second place. The Penn five dis
played its best form of the season
and the spectators were never in
doubt as to the ultimate result of
the battle after the first ten minutes
of play.
It is hard to pick an individual
star from the Penn team, for every
member contributed to the victory.
Mike Sweeney, the star forward, was
the leading scorer, being individual
ly responsible for 17 points. Mike
was all over the floor and was dan

ing six pretty field goals from vari
ous angles, the Penn forward made
good in five out of seven tries from
the foul line.

and In Sweden. She subsequently became associated with Ranft in sir
James Barrio's "Quality Street." Lavendan's "Catherine, Bernard Shaw s
"You Never Can Toll" and M. Donnay's "I.'Autre Danger. It may be
remembered that she first came to New York from London, sent by Sir
George Alexander to the lato Charles Frohman to play Renee de Rould,
the leading feminine rolo In "The Attack," with John Mason. In this
| play Miss Hedman literally listened herself into prominence. Her part
was one of few lines to speak, but she was required to be on the stage
throughout most of the action in the play. All she had to do was to listen,
which is generally conceded among players to be the hardest thing to do
on the stage. Later she appeared here in R. C. Carton's "Liberty Hall"
and Augustus Thomas' "Indian Summer." Miss Hedman subsequently
went to London, where she appeared with Sir George Alexander in "The
Attack," which had been a failure in New York. The play was a great
success in London, where Miss Hedman appeared in it with Sir George
Alexander for over a year. She then appeared in Alfred Sutro's "The Two
Virtues," in which E. H. Sotheru appeared! in this country. Miss Hedman
has appeared in various successes since her return to this country and dur
