Three-cushion billiards has long
been regarded as too technical for
the novice and its boosters think this
method will help make the game pop
ular. The great popularity of college
football Is indicated by the action of
the Yale athletic management in
voting to build 8,000 more seats in
the Yale bowl and raise the seating
capacity to more than 70,000.
This is a greater number than has
ever attended a professional baseball
game, a prize fight or a race in
America. A few soccer matches in
England have drawn larger crowds,
as have one or two championship
amateur baseball games in Cleve
land, but these contests were held in
the open and no admission charged.

Judge Hughes' "deeds not words"
speech stamps him as a dangerous
man for president of the United
States. "Deeds, not words," means
fight first and talk afterwards. They
did that in Europe two years ago and
are fighting yet.
Do Americans need any such ex
perience? Common sense tells us
that it is better to use the supply of
good words before doing the deeds
that may mean war. America can
get a fight any time she wants it,
even with crippled Mexico.
If Judge Hughes thinks his fore
sight is as good as his wonderful
hindsight he should have told us
what to do to avoid the railroad
strike, and exactly what he would
do with Mexico; also with the allies
for interfering with neutral com
merce and mails, and with Germany
for refusing to explain the Owego
shooting incident On all of these
he is silent.
I am a Republican, but I shall vote S)
for Wilson. We know he will ex
haust all available good words before
doing "deeds" that would justify war.
We know his legislative record of
things done for the direct election of
U. S. senators, sailors' freedom, re
serve banking, rural credits and the
abolition of child labor.

Ben Blewett is from Missouri, the
"show-me state." He's superinten
dent of the public school system of
SL Louis. Before city council schools
committee Saturday he was asked
about Loeb Rule No. 1.
"If a teacher can't show by her
work that she is a responsible person
she shouldn't be allowed on the
teaching- staff," said Blewett Which
sounds like Jake Loeb.
"If a teacher shows skill and en-
thusiasm for her work it is no one's
business what she does after hours,"
also said Blewett. Which is quite
different from Jake Loeb's idea that
the school board can regulate what
organizations a school teacher shall
