teams lined up lor signal practice.
The formations oT the varsitv were
gone through witli the r .' Ion
..nap and "igor. CufT did the punting
in the absence ol Pillsburv and proved
to be quite elTective In gaining
ground by tliis metliod. Both sets
of oacks were used and it is very hard
lo tell which were t lie surer.
The work of the senilis was not up
to the usual standard. Many fum
bles were made winch In a name
might prove vervVosth. This was
due no "doubt to the tact that Mc
Donald the regular quarter was tried
aOull-back and Itcaid who took his
place did not play as sure nor as
quick as the regular quarter
The team did not line up lor sciim
inagc but were kept busy by the
coaches, pounding away at signals
until it was almost too dark io see

The Alumni-Illgh School game was
a tine exhlDition of foot-ball and was
a tight to the finish.
The Alumni scored twice on the
regular team. Ra mond kicking
both goals. It was a pure case of the
survival or the tiittesc from the be
ginning. The score: 12 to (.
Tho high school bujs are a erv
last aggregation ol piavers who have
not been scored against this year,
save by the Varsity team. But vthey
met their Waterloo yesterday. One
or the most marvelous things if the

the stars or the Alumni, always
gaining their ground when called
upon, and tlvey were continually
spoiling the formations of the high

of 3.r yards. Captain Westover acted
as referee and Professor Condra as

three books that antedate this; a
Terence of I.mS and a Horace of 1 .",-)!.

together in beautifully tooled ellum

Basle in 15:18 and similarly bound;
and another Pl.iutus by Angelus pub

Is exceedingly rare. Professor Kitsch I
says that he hunted not less than
twenty years In Germany, Italy,
France, and Holland before lie could
secure a copy for lnmselt. The latin
department also has a manuscript of
Sallust of the Fourteenth century.
The seniors will play the sopho

Lieutenant Barlow Speaks in the
Chapel of Conditions in the
I8lands---Feel the Need
of Better Schools.
Lieutenant Barlow, an ex-l nlvei
sitv student of the class of 1800, now
lieutenant in a regiment of native
Philllpine scouts, spoke for a short
time yesterday in chapel. He said he
was glad to note the Improvement
the I "diversity h;,d mado since he
was a student and considered It a
great favor to be allowed to call at
tention to some or the features of
Filipino life as he saw It.
He was surprised to see the effect
Catholicism hud bad upon the na
tives. In this country Catholicism
aids the advancement of the people
and be supposed he .vould find the
pocplc theie highly civilized But
the contrary was true. in every
town no matter how small there was
a large stone church and often It
would be larger than all the houses of
the town put together. This plainly
showed bow tho people were ground
down by the Spanish Friars. Every
Sunday moining everyone In the dis
trict attended mass. Many of the na
tives came bringing cocks under their
arm for the cock fight which invari
ably followed tho mass-service. One
thing was peculiar in this, the priest
and prominent men of the village al
ways won all the money while the
poor people went home to scrape up
some more money b the next Sun
day. Economically, tho islands arc cap
able or much advancement. Tho soil
is very rich and productive especially
Tor rice, tobacco, hemp and sugar
cane. Agriculture is very ruoe ow
ing to lack or implements. Harvest
ing is also ' very crude. The rice is
threshed out by beating the rice beads
with clubs, throwing the grain up to
let 'the wind blow out the chalT.
Flour is then made by pounding It up
in a wooaen bowl. He considered
that 't would take as much labor to
make one pound of rice flour by the
Filipino method as It would to make
."iOO iounos in the United States.
He said that the schools were also
very poor but are gradually advancing
under United States government in
struction. School books have been
introduced and the schools have been
The Islands need help and the peo
ple can never be aioed properly un
less ull the psoplc or the United
States lend tnolr influence. He urged
the students to make a thorough
study of tho question D6forc con
doming the governments action in
tho Philippines.
