The chairman even produced pho

whose curls.were the product of the
X-Hays, and these were handed for
inspection to the members.

Yet, despite this, the parents of

yelled for Stanley Ketchel, but he
failed to respond.
At the end of the fifth round both
men were fresh, as no considerable
damage had been done by either. Hon
ors were slightly in favor of Cross.
The latter's footwork was good and
his blows were delivered with a cal- j

Boston, Mass. -? Professor George
Herbert Palmer, of Harvard, sixty
seven years old, twice wed and re
ported to be ^contemplating a third
venture in matrimony, his next bride
to be a Wellesley professor, has come
forward with the statement that a lit
tle flirting, properly conducted, of
course, is not only advisable, but
even imperative, for the average col-,
lege boy and girl.
"Flirting is the stirest road toward
the proper knowledge of social life,"
says the professor, who has the dis
tinction of being the oldest member
of the Harvard faculty,. and whose
second wife, Alice Freeman Palmer,
was president of Wellesley College
from 1881 to 1887.
j "I think the girls of Radcliffe and
the boys of Harvard devote too much
of their time to study. They actually
bury themselves In their books, and
the result is that when they get
through college they don't know a
thing about social life.
, "They Bhould mingle a little frivol
ity with their studies - In other
words, they should flirt a little. Were
I to advise the boys of Harvard or
the girls of Radcliffe, I would tell
them to go around and' see things
more than they do.
"I am always reminded of a girl
graduate of Radcliffe, who studied so
hard that she got the reputation Qf
being over-studious. She never went
anywhere. While the other girls

Monk, when called upon afterward to
explain her conduct, experienced no

imputation which had been cast upon
her. Notwithstanding that, she went
home, determined to die rather than
face her comrades in the exchange.
Before she drank the acid she wrote
a note. Ip it she called attention to
the fact that she had bsen repri

Senator Aldrich said he would sup
port the corporation tax amendment
.as a means of defeating the income
tax, expressing the opinion that the
