Athletes Are Wrought Up Over Method
of Dividing Out Class Letters,
Claiming Discrimination.
The awarding of letters to the Holy
Cross athletes brings to light a queer
situation. Of 50 men who reported and
slaved through the season, 20 were
given letters, which is a greater num
ber than is usual at the institution,
but the puzzle conies in the naming of
the games in which the men must play
to get the coveted letters.
Holy Cross played Princeton. Yale,
Harvard and several smaller elevens,
but in naming the games where play
ing counted in getting letters, both
Princeton and Yale games were left
off. and Kordliam, Worcester Tech and
Georgetown were named, says a Uos
ton dispatch to the Detroit Free Press
Why the Tiger and Eli games were
not rated as high enough to warrant
the issuing of letters is hard to un
They certainly were bigger games
than that with Worcester Tech, which
Holy Cross won by an overwhelming
score of 72 to 0 for Holy Cross. An
other uuique turn of affairs at Holy
Cross kept Captain Metiver from win
ning his letter. He was injured at the
time of three of the four' big" games—
Fordham. Worcester Tech and Georgs*
town—but played in the Yale. Har
vard and Princeton games. In other
words, he played in the real games
and did not get his letter, while sub
stitutes played in the easy games and
received their letters.
Sidney Marvin. Wealthy Resident of
San Francisco, Developed Mc
Loughlin. Johnston and Others.
• _
Developing tennis champions is the
favorite pastime of Sidney K. Marvin
of this city, a man of wealth who de- j
votes his spare time to the promotion
of juvenile athletics. His success is !
measured by the progress of Maurice
E. McLoughlin. I'nited States cham- ;
pion; William M. Johnson, winner of j
the Longwood cup at Koston. and John ]
Strachan, winner of the national clay ]
court championship at Omaha. This !
trio was graduated from the club j
which Marvin founded ten years ago
and his directed since.
It was Marvin's idea that if through
constant tournament play, great ac
curacy could be obtained with the |
j speed developed on the asphalt courts
William M. Johnston of California.
| of California, a series of champions
| would be produced. At the outset he
engaged a veteran professional to in
struct his young charges, and monthly
ournaments for high class trophies
! have stimulated interest in the game.
"Mr. Marvin's boys," as they are
hnown on the Pacific coast, develop
championship caliber early. McLough

on his invasion of the east and his

courts, celebrated his eigtheenth birth

clay court champion, is the same age.
Fighters Sail for Australia.
Ray Bronson, Eddie McGoorty and
young Saylor have departed for Aus
tralia to fight the rising stars of that
island. It is a recognized fact that
lighters take on weight very fast in
the Antipodes, so It will not be re
markable if these fighters come back
ns heavyweights. The most striking
example of this occurred to Cyclone
Johnny Thompson. A lightweight on
ieaving, but after staying away for
two years, came back to the Cnited
States and lought Bob Moha. Papke
and other light heavyweights.

Rain Falling on Highway Properly
Crowned Will Run Quickly to Side
and Not Soak Into Surface.
If you look at the ordinary county;
road after a shower you will see smalll
puddles along the wheel ruts and)
sometimes larger pools. This water
stays on the road surface beside ditch
es. If you look closely you will see
side ditches which have grown up with
bushes and weqtfs in many cases, and
which are so far from the traveled
part of the road that the rain water
does not drain into them. That part
of the roadway where the wagons trav
el is called the traveled way. To pre
vent water from standing on the trav
eled way the road should be raised in
the center and should slope gently in
to broad shallow ditches. It is then
said to have a crown. If it is ten
feet from the center of the road to>
the side ditch, the surface at the side
ditch should at least bo ten inches
lower than It is at the center where
the horses travel. The road then has
a ten-inch crown. The rain that falls
on a road properly crowned will run
quickly to the side and not soak into
the surface or form pools. The side
ditches for surface water should run
parallel to the right of way. and should
be open at every low point so that
the water can run out of them into
neighboring brooks or streams. If the
ditches merely collect the water from
the road surface and it can not run
away, large pools will be formed along
the roadside, which will gradually
6oak into the soil beneath the road
and make it so soft that the wheels of
the wagons will cut through the road
surface and soon destroy it.
Sometimes water runs from land
along the road into the road and
forms a little stream down the wheel
tracks or in the middle where the
horses travel. When driveways into
farmyards are built across the side
ditches they frequently form channels
for water from the farmyard to run
into the road. The pipes under drive
rubbish and the water can no longer
run away. If the driveways that stop
the ditch water were rebuilt so that
no pipes were necessary and the ditch
could be left open, much trouble from
surface water would be stopped.
Sometimes a road runs across low
ground or through a swamp where the
road cannot be drained by side ditches
alone. If the road were built higher
like a railroad embankment across
such low land and made with a crown,
it would be dry and hard. Sometimes
a road passes through what is called
a cut. This is a place where the earth
has been dug out so that the road can
go over a hill without oeing too steep
The water which always flows quietly
under the ground on hill sides is
known as ground water. In road cuts
such water sometimes makes the road
very muddy, and the road then needs
what road builders call underdrain
age. A good kind of underdrainage is
a trench to go along under the side
drain and about three feet deep and
a foot and a half wide. In this trench
a pipe is laid near the bottom and cov
ered with loose stones no bigger than
an egg. When the trench is com
pletely tilled with loose stones the
ground water, instead of soaking into
the roadway, will stop among the
stones and flow down the hill through
the pipe.
To keep a road smooth and crown
ed the best method is to drag it with
a road drag. A road drag is made
easily with two halves of a log which
has been split.
Time Will Come When Permanenc)
in Thoroughfares Will Be More
Highly Appreciated Than Now.
A prominent good roads advocate be
longing to the American association
says: “It is a waste of time to build
roads of anything better than gravel
and not so good as concrete.” By
which he means that if the road is to
to be anything less than absolutely
permanent, it should be of gravel or
plain earth. One thing is sure, the au
tomobiles are putting macadam roads
in the category of things which will
not do, says the Baltimore American.
Concrete roads built over 20 years
ago have been kept in repair under
country-town conditions at an annual
expense rate of $15 a mile, and are
still better than any macadam road
Is likely to be in one-tenth the time
In this age of rubber tired vehicles.
The ideal road would seem to be a
narrow concrete roadway with earth
or gravel ways at the sides. The mo
tor cars will follow the concrete, and
in ordinary going the drivers who con
sider their horsse' feet will keep on
the pleasanter and softer track at the
side. In bad weather all could use the
narrow concrete roadway with earth
gravel road should run alongside every
macadam, brick or concrete way. It
keeps teams off the motor path and
makes pleasanter going for both horse
and horseman. The time will come
when permanency in our roads will
be more highly appreciated and work
ed far more generally.
Thrifty Turkeys.
On farms having high, dry land
which has a light growth of grass, and
where a new breeding gobbler has late
ly been introduced, the largest flocks
and the most thrifty-looking turkeys
are found.
Avoid Winter Troubles.
If fowls are started out right in the
fall they will go through the severest
winter without trouble. Do not house
your stock closely in the fall. Get it
accustomed to the weather condition*
as they come.
Cloth Gown Suitable for Daily Wear
AS comfortable and easy hanging
as a morning gown bnt with every
mark of afternoon apparel, this de
sign is the simplest of all interpre
tations of our present modes. The
skirt and bodice appear to be cut in
one, but are separate.
The skirt, made of two pieces in
goods of average width, might be
draped on the figure from a single
width of the widest materials. It is
shaped in at the hips and there is a
little fullness at the back. The shap
ing and gathers afford just room
enough for the swell of the figure at
the hips.
The waist line is high and very
easy in order to make a free move
ment of the arms possible. It is cut
with long shoulders and large arms
eyes. The fullness at the bust is ta
ken care of by a group of plaits at
each side terminating under the belt.
It is in its careful finishing touches
that the gown displays the talent of
its noted designer. All very simple
models must rely upon finish and clev
erness in cut or drapery, to rise out
of the class of the commonplace.
The square neck is shaped and fin
ished with a piping of velvet. The
front is cut into a double breast, the
overlapping side fastened down with
two buttons. Its lower edge lies over
the top of the skirt where bodice and
skirt are joined.
A narrow belt, with rounded ends,
is finished with a piping and fastened
with a fancy button at each end. It I
does not encircle all of the waist, al- j
lowing a straight front appearance
(which is smart and clever) in the ,
interval between the ends.
There is a small turnover collar in j
the sailor shape, of fine embroidered !
batiste. The neck is filled in with a
folded chemisette of fine figured net. ;
A plaited ruffle of the same net fin-!
ishes the sleeves.
A strand of large pearls and a long- j
er one of smaller pearls finishes the !
pretty toilette. But pearls might be j
replaced with strands of any of the j
many fashionable glass beads that !
harmonize with the gown in color.
This model is well adapted to the
unusual new shades In which fashion
able fabrics are made. Mustard col- j
or, gold, green, paprika, mahogany j
and the curious blues and greens that !
are displayed in cloth and silk look
best when made up in the simplest
manner. But the design is good in
the colors which we know well, such
as royal blue, amethyst, golden brown
and dark green. It would be pretty
developed in black, and is an especial
ly good model for velvet.
Colonial slippers and silk stockings
are worn with it, and such a dress
calls for a simple and well dressed
coiffure. Lake all simple things it will
not grow tiresome to the wearer, and
might be used daily during the reign
of our easy going fashions.
rHE baby must have his airing
every day no matter if the weath
?r be sharp. He must be thoroughly
protected against the cold and never
illowed to get chilled.
Besides the clothes he wears in the
aouse he Is to be provided with ar
ticles which he will need to fortify
dim against the cold. If he is dressed
is the right way a jaunt in the open
air can do him nothing but good ant1
he will like it and thrive on it.
An extra flannel skirt and long soft
woolen stockings should be added to
the clothes he wears in the house,
when he is going out. at this time of
the year. His little boots of yarn are
to be worn over the stockings. His
mittens of silk and wool are knitted
double, and his little cap is very
closely knitted of the softest yarn.
In making the cap it' is not only
closely knitted but made large enough
so that it turns back at the front.
This gives additional warmth, and as
he grows larger rapidly, allows the
cap to be turned back less, so that he
may wear it for some time. Narrow
ribbon run through it at the nape of
the neck ties in a little bow at the
back. This allows the cap to be ad
justed to the tiny head and let out
afterward as needed. The ties are
either of narrow ribbon or soft mull.
A small close-fitting silk cap may be
worn under the knitted cap.
His little boots and shoes are often
made of flannel embroidered with silk
and laced with ribbon. They are cut
out of a pattern and are soft and
pretty. Knitted or crocheted boots are
made with quite long tops for the
baby's outing, and fastened with soft
crochet cord and small zephyr tassels
at the ankle.
When his head and hands and feet
have been protected, he has the added
comfort of his co&t. Finally he is
tucked into his carriage under a robe
of fur or eiderdown and the top ad
justed to protect him from the wind
if there is any.
The baby is sometimes kept too
warm in the honse, and is fretful on
this account. In steam heated apart
ments particularly, he will not need a 1
lot of flannels. He must always wear
his band over the bowels, but a pin
ning blanket is not needed. He wears
a flannel petticoat and a light slip.
But for a house not so warm, or when
he goes out, he must have an ample
supply of extra clothing.
His dresses and skirts are not made
as long as they used to be. Twenty
seven inches now is the standard
length. They are not much trimmed,
but are made of very fine materials
and finished with fine face edgings,
little tucks, small sprays of hand em
broidery and scallops. Feather stitch
ing is much admired. One who knows
how to sew nicely can make all his be
longings in the beet manner at hon»

Rich Philadelphians Show Prefer

John T. Morris of Quaker City Seeks

Others Do Likewise.
Philadelphia.—The boyish fancy for
building a log cabin and playing In

of a larger growth. On many of the
estates of rich men log cabins are
being built. Thus in a secluded cor
ner of the estate of John T. Morris
at Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia, a tiny
log cabin has been erected.
The interior consists of only one
small room, neatly furnished in con
ventional log cabin style, with a Nava
jo blanket on the floor and a few sim
ple articles of furniture. Here the
owner of the mansion and its big
grounds retires to read when he has
a fancy for complete isolation.
A little rustic bridge leads across
a brook in front of the little cabin,
and in fine weather the owner of the
cabin can sit on a tiny porch and
listen to the rippling water and be

This is a more pretentious structure
than that of Mr. Morris. It is model

The floor well waxed for dancing

setees around the wall. A feature
is an immense fireplace for the burn

German Inventor Would Carry 300
Passengers Across the Atlantic

Vienna.—The German airship in

rying 30C passengers and of crossing
the Atlantic in 50 hours.
French experts state that the new
airship certainly is the most practica
ble yet designed for long voyages. The
inventor says It will bring Vienna with
