The latest acquisition of the Chicago
University Is the Yerkes observatory,
and President Harper Is to bo con
gratulated. Tho observatory, which
was dedicated with due ceremony Oc
tober 21, is situated on the shores of
Lnko Geneva, seventy-flvo miles from
Chicago, and cost about $400,000. As
tronomical science has received mer
ited Impetus In Chicago University and
in fact throughout the country. The
dedicatory exercises brought together
Harvard, and Cornell men, who have
at ono tlmo or another played In tho
"big" games. Tliolr Interest In the
game Is only equalled by their desire
to humble Yale. Wo are a long dis
tance from the game, hut tho outcome
will bo Interesting to all foot lialllsts.
Ileecnt action by tho faculty of tlio
State llnivcrslty of Washington pro
hibits co-eds from attendance at foot
ball games. Ono "young" man on the
faculty opposed the action. He was
hanqiu'ted by the girls the next day.
Will someone kindly circulate a peti
tion that our faculty take similar ac
tion, or will someone equally kind
write a postal can) to our legislature
and tell them about the case?
For the proper and artistic use of
foot ball terms, commend us to the
athletics editor of our contemporary.
The following gem Is taken from the
account of the Wesleyan game: "Slow
gains took the ball within thirty-live
yards of Wosloyun's goal. Then came
the feature of the game. Tho ball was
punted to Cowglll and he kicked goal
That was truly a wonderful perform
ance. The ball was on the thirty-live
yard line, and yet Cowglll kicked goal
from center. No wonder the crowd
went wild with delight. Cowglll must
have run back twenty yards to center
and then kicked a goal. A kick of
llfty-llvo yards for goal Is a play
worthy of special notice. Hut If tho
ball was on the thlrty-llvo yard line
and Cowglll kicked goal from center,
who punted tho ball back to Cowglll?
The enterprising reporter neglected to
mention this fact. That is left to tho
Imagination of the reader. No doubt
Herbert, by a double back-action kick,
did the business, but If he did ho
should be given credit for his novel
play. No mattor how It Is construed,
such a play as that should be heralded
throughout the length and breadth of
the land. Great Is Cowglll, who, with
the ball on the thlrty-llvo-yard line,
kicked goal from center. Great Is tho
unknown person who punted the ball
