Prof. Milton Whitney of the United State Geolo
gical Survey spoke in chapel this morning. Prof,
Whitney is an authority on soils acd is not only do
ing investigative work for the Agricultural Depart
ment, but also looking for assistants in the Depart
ment. There are position with good salaries wait
ing for the proper men to fill them. The reluctance
of those to whom they are offered foaccci them, is
because of the nature of the work. This Is necessarily
narrow, as it has to do mostly with economic qoes
lions; but the men must not be narrow, and can
bring as much theory as they like to the work.
Western institutionsgive the best men to the depart
ment, the most satisfactory hecauge willing' to look
at-work from the shift of utilitj. They aru better fit
el from their preparation.

A minstrel show will be given Saturday, Oct. 23rd
in the chapel for the benefit of the football team.
Those who saw the minstrel show last spring are
unanimous in its praise. The show last spring was
for the benefit of baseball; the one this fall is to be
given for the benelit of football. This show deserves
a liberal patronage not only on account of the fact
that it is given in the interests of a giod cause, but
because of the merit of the performance. Since the
renovation of the chapel it is admirably fitted for
an entertainment of this kiBd. There will be three
parts to tlie show, a minstrel, a few specialties and
a new farce. It promises to more than duplicate
the entertainment of last spring. There will be an
unlinked supply of the latest popular songs, local
"gags" and several new features.
Tina is not a "barb-" or a "frat" affair,but a Univer
sity affair. There will be theatre parties from nearly
every organization iu the University. Remember
the proceeds go to football, yet the performance
itself is worth the money.
