game between the frats north and
south of O street was the principal at
traction in the afternoon, and resulted
in a ictory for the north side. The
foot-races, pie-eating contest, and
other athletic events scheduled to fol

After lunch the rain began to descend
at a lively rate and the crowd assem
bled under shelter and enjojed a spcc h

Students In systematic botany are
continuing their counting of the seeds
of the dandelion heads. It appears
that the numbers vary greatly, the
smallest being about 150, while the
largest exceed 300. Even the smaller
number Involves a reproductive ca
pacity which Is quite discouraging to
the owners of lnrge lawns. Experi
ments are now under way to determine
what proportion of the seeds actually
grow when they fall to the ground.
It Is suspected that a good many seedH
are not fertile.
