Dave Stern, manager of the Washington team, says the ,-English school accepted the challenge in a letter from Frank G. Kenshaw, honorary secretary of the Cambridge Tiddly- wink Society. If financial arrangements can be made, Ken- shaw said the West Coast contest would follow scheduled at Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth, Chicago and other "Tiddlywinks is a sport, not a Kenshaw wrote, we hope to be able to prove to you. Gamesmanship .Is inapplicable." Stern and his nine-man-one-girl team consider it a sport. .too.-They are busily trying to become ambidextrous (ap- proved under international rules) and working on thumb de velopment. ;As in most sports, tiddlywinks has its own vocabulary .The squop is a tactical move to cover an opponent's tiddly and the pot is something you try to. shoot rake in Stern's team won its first collegiate match against Seat- '.tie Universtiy 19-9, and now is considering a challenge it has received from Washington faculty members.

In the office of-a protection agency, a burglar alarm sounded. Patrolman B. W. Halm rounded a corner just in time to.see Butch take off.

Some northern senators who have been hostile to the ;overnor's plan are beginning to show a more conciliatory attitude. There are those who are now willing to see North- ern water piped to the South if they can make sure of get- ting something out of it for their own people. THE NORTH needs the votes of Southern Califoma's big population to put over Thursday night. The commit- and help pay for a bond issue, especially one the size advo- cated by Brown. In return, the South wants assurances of a firm supply of water once the project is built. Meanwhile, it will be at least late this week before Ways and Means Chairman Jesse Unruh {D-Los Angeles) calls up the budget bill in the Assembly.
