The Monks of New Skete garnered national media attention with their dog training techniques and best-selling books, \TTow to be Your Dog's Best Friend\ and \The Art of Raising a Puppy\. This new book \In the Spirit of Happiness\ explores contemporary monastic life and the belief that human beings were created to be happy, and that the elements of a monk's life-self discipline, solitude, prayer, acts of love and forgiveness are the pathways any­ one can follow to achieve true happiness. One of their famous dogs will ac­ company the monks. A modest fee will be charged, one dollar of which will benefit the Humane Society.

Based on student essays, EF will offer scholarships to 12 juniors, 10 from the United Stales and two from Canada. Each student will re­ ceive $1000 toward their college tuition and a ten-day expenses-paid educa­ tional tour of Europe. The scholarship program was estab­ lished to inspire students to think about their evolving roles in an increasingly global community. Applicants must be nominated through their schools. They,, are asked to submit an essay describing how a personal travel experience changed diem and demonstrated their \global citizen\ qualities. In addition to receiving funds tor college, scholarship recipients will travel together in July on an expenses-paid educational tour in­ cluding London and Pais.

There are so many new bowling balls on the market, new gadg­ ets for your wrists, your arms, your fin­ gers, that it is almost impossible to know what to get the bowler. They now have designer shoes, bags, towels,, and, o f course, bowling balls. Did you see the. pro tour with the bowlers using the skull ball? What a change from the equipment o f yesterday that was only black rubber bowling balls. S q much has changed not only the lane conditions and equipment, but the bowlers themselves. So it is difficult at best to know what to get that favorite bowler of yours. When in doubt, get that gift certificate so he or she can pick out their own colors, models or styles they desire. Whatever the gift, the bowler will appreciate it greatly. Years ago I mentioned I wanted a new ball, and I was given a beat up hammer and another year, a plastic rhino. So I guess to avoid confusion, the bowler has to be really specific. I would urge the gift giver to purchase the equipment from a pro shop, not a department store. That equipment tends to be seconds, so make your purchase of a ball at a pro shop in the area. You can't go wrong. The season is fast approaching the halfway point. Can you reflect on your season so far and be happy with it? If not, then the word practice always comes up. Missing those one pin spares really hurts your score, I know from personal experience. There is no excuse for missing a one pin spare, it is just a lack of concentration. Bowling, accord­ ing to some writers, is 70% mental and 30% physical. That is one of the rea­ sons bowlers come in all sizes, ages and are both men and women. The bowler who is older and can no longer roll the big strike ball will still beat the big shooter if he or she can convert their spares. Remember, missing just one spare per game co-'s you ten pins. Over a season doing than your average is ten pins lower than it could be if you had coverted those spares. If you look back and have done a good job of converting 90% or more of your spares, you are having a good year. If not, you must strive to convert the spares.

Every pin. adds up, A game the other night was won by bne pin, so it is critical you get the pins on the im­ possible splits. A split like the 4-6 or 7-10 is not made very often, so unless you are the anchor bowler and have to convert that split to win the game: or face a loss, just get the pins and when you come down to the bottom ofthe or­ der in the tenth frame, you may, have saved your team the game by getting those few pins back in the early stages of the game. That could be your new year's reso­ lution. Convert all your spares, get the wood on the splits, and the strikes will come. WOMEN’S INTERNATIONAL Teams Won Lost Eagles 49 2.1 The B.
