8chool of Journalism.
The now school of Journalism estab
lished In the Missouri State University
at Columbia has already attracted a
good deal of attention, and the pros
pectus Just Issued by the University
scorns to indicate that It will be con
ducted In a brooder and more thorough
fashion than other' ventures of the
same sort. Thoro Is room for dif
ference of opinion as to whether the
Intending Journalist should receive
a special education or follow the or
dinary liberal curriculum, trusting to
actual experience for such special
knowledge as Is required; much may
be said on both sides. But if a course
In Journalism is worth while at nil,
it Is such a broad and educational
course as Is here marked out. The
routine of a newspaper office Is not
quite as much a gift as an accomplish
ment. The things newspnper men
can profitably know, too, nre so In
numerable that no college course could
Include them all. Yet In a more re
stricted way there 1b a body of knowl
edge which Is of paramount value in a
newspaper ofllce, nnd which an ordin
ary college education gives in part and
in part misses. Broadly speaking,
Journalism as a field for intellectual
effort has always meant one of two
things. It has mennt politics or it
has meant literature an the arts.

WELL AS BOYS
A COMPLICATED TASK
MAKING OF LARGE TELE8COPE 18
A DELICATE TASK.
TESTED IN PHYSICS BUILDING
Artificial Light Is Used to Test the
Lens After It Has Been Ground
to the Approximate 8hape
At chapel Tuesday morning, Profes
sor Sweezy attempted, by means of pic
tures to explain the methods by which
a modern telescope Is built. Ho ex
plained that tho building of n telescope
naturally falls Into two divisions. First,
the cutting of the lenseB, which taxes
the Bklll of tho best mechanics, and
second, the making of the machinery
which runs the telescope.
The llrst problem In the making of
tho lenses Is to get a suitable piece of
glass. There aro only three firms In
the world that make a business of sup
plying lenBeB for great telescopes. The
reason for tho great difficulty encount
ered Is the fact that (he-glass must be
cooled slowly. The glass naturally
cools more rapidly on tho outside than
the inside and this makes a uniform
density Impossible. The glaBS comes
out of the furnass aB a big mass likely
to contains flaws of many kinds, such
as air bublcs. Chunks of the glass
containing the flaws are first sawed
off. The glass Is cooled in a huge
oven made especially to prevent the
outside of the mass from cooling more
rapidly than the Inside. It is sealed
in this oven and Is left there for days
until it becomes thoroughly cool,
The Grinding Process.
A big disk Is used for grinding which
has exactly the right curvature. With
tills machine the lens Is ground until
it has reached tho approximate shape
required. The glass is then polished
with fine emery paper.
When the lense has reached this
point it 1b ready for the testing room.
This Is a long dark room with an ar
tificial light at one end. The light Is
focused through the lense nnd the op
tician can then tell where the lense
In the Physics building an arrange
ment has been made so that the lenses
can be tested there. A thermometer
bulb with sunlight flashed upon It is
used as the artificial light. It has
been found that thiB makes a very
good artificial star.
A Great Difference.
There 1b a very great difference In
the complication of large and small tel
escopes. In the Bmall telescope alP
parts are reached easily from the floor
and can be manipulated by hand. A
thirty-six Inch telescope 1b a remark
ably complicated and delicate instru
ment. The machinery must at the
same time be massive enough to carry
a great weight and delicate enough to
make possible the most careful ad
justments. The Season.

Fall Boat Training.
Fall training for the oarsmen of
Stanford and California will begin at
once. Stanford has a strong squad this
year, many old men having returned
and announced their intention of try
ing out for the crew. A full regatta to
be held under tho auspices of the Los
Angeles and San Diego athletic clubs
will" be participated in by Stanford
fours and eights. Coach Dan Murphy
will soon resume work.
California's prospects wei'e never
brighter. Fall training for freshmen
will soon begin under the direction of.
Dean" G. Witter, 09, captain of last
year's varsjty eight, assisted by the
coflswain and other members of tho
crew. Coach E. M. Garnett will not
be with California this year, although
his successor has not been appointed,
Coach Colson of Cornell will' probably
be selected to coach the varsity crow.

SOPHS GETTING BUSY.

served to agitato matters considerably
The situation in the class Is some
what peculiar from several stand
points. For one thing the sudden Im
petus which the campaigns of various
aspirants received last week was sur
prising to nearly all tho members of
the class. A quiet time had been an
ticipated and only one man was in the
field until Wednesday. On that date
two others publicly announced their
candidacy and things have been hum
ming since. Tho class Is being thor
oughly canvassed and it is probable
that an unusually large number will
turn out at the election.
