It is thevessel which the maidens took to the spring; filled with water; andthen bore home on their heads. It was carried, when empty in ahorizontal; and when full, in a vertical attitude. Of all vases: it isthe most perfect in form; its aim being so well expressed in its con-struction. It must be easy to carry, convenient to fill and empty,and to hold as much fluid as possible; it therefore has a verticalbody of the shape of an inverted egg (this form places the centi-eof gravity at the top, which facilitates transportation in a verticalattitude); on which a funnel-shaped neck is placed. It has throehandles: two are horizontal, diametrically opposite to each other at VASES. 321

As regards productiveness, theperiod excites astonishment; but as far as variety is concerned, it issingularly meagre.

Defending Florida State champion Fort Myers lost their second game in the tourney, losing to Memphis Melrose 74-45. Melrose blew the game open after being tied at the end of the first quarter. Adonis Thomas, who is ranked in the top ten in almost every recruiting service, scored 25 points with 11 rebounds and five blocks. He is said to be going to Memphis whereas as teammate and Auburn recruit Cedrick McAfee added 15 points. Fort Myers was led by Evin Graham’s 13 points.

AT&T is also adding expansions in major areas such as Twin Cities, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Atlanta. All this and the fact that AT&T seems to be getting all the best new phones first will definitely attract a lot of new customers.

On a lighter note, other worthwhile things to travel to in Germany are their vehicle museums. The Germans are known everywhere around the world for their impeccable taste and craftsmanship for cars. If your a fan of car, it would only be appropriate to travel to the BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche Museums. There, you might see the evolution of several cars of these makers. The Mercedes-Benz plus the Porsche Museum is located in Callgirls Escort Stuttgart, while the BMW Museum is found in Munich.

The U.S. Under-20 Women’s National Team – competing in the ultimate Frisbee World Junior Ultimate Championships in Begleitagentur Heilbronn, Germany – played Australia in the third and fourth-place game on Saturday, Aug. 7.

Wisconsin has had the luxury of being able to cruise through the early part of their season. Wins over UNLV, Northern Illinois, and Oregon State, the Badgers haven’t really had that game that can be looked at as one that has showed the team’s true grit. Don’t expect South Dakota to be the team that does that. Wisconsin will win again by 30+ points and walk their way to the first of major match-up of the season the next week against Nebraska.

The Horned Frogs had some issues in the first half trying to shake off Louisiana-Monroe and i mean some real troubles. Ulm led 17-14 after the first and was only down 21-17 at half. TCU broke the game wide open though with a 94 yard kick return from Greg McCoy. After that, Ulm never was the same as TCU dropped seventeen unanswered points to get 38-17 win. TCU is slowly climbing back up the Top 25 on the back of these somewhat easy wins and the failure of others. While a good portion of teams this week have challenging match-ups, TCU will host Portland State in an attempt to move to 3-1 and continue its march down the trail of mediocre teams.

Bowling in the TGIF Mixed League on Friday nights is Tim Willner 300-813 and in the Commercial Men’s League Robert Hamilton had a 300-727. The second week Tim Dunbar managed to have a 289 with a great 824 series, in his Funtime Mixed league on Thursday nights.

PSV Eindhoven was very good in this tournament last year and CSKA Moscow was mediocre. I think that Eindhoven has a great chance to win this game at home and if they can play like they did last year against Arsenal, they can beat most teams in this league.
