TIIAXKSGIVl.XJ FOR ALL.
Despite wars and elections, national
and international upheavals this year,
eatables for the Thanksgiving dinner
will be cheaper. Everything good to
eat will cost less this Thanksgiving'
say merchants, and they are the ones .
Poor as well as rich can
enjoy a bountiful dinner which, after
all, is an important part of Thanks-'ing
giing. Turkey, chicken, ducks, geese
and the whole line of vegetables and
fruits will all be well within the reach
of the average pocKetbook. And, too,
some of the staple Thanksgiving deli
cacies will be cheaper than they have
been for years. Think of it. pumpkin
for those favorite old pies can be
bought for 10 cents apiece, big ones
at that! Turkey sells for 23 cents a
pound this year; but they cost 2S cents
last Thanksgiving. Chicken, ducks
and geese will sell for 15 cents a
pound this season. Cranberries will
cost the Thanksgiving buyer only 9
cents a quart, and mixed nuts 1.1
cents. Apples are cheaper than ever
before; they sell for from 33 to 50
cents a bushel.
With these prices in mind anybody
can finance the Thanksgiving dinner
THE BETTIXG EVIL.
The past presidential campaign was
productive of much betting. This pe
culiar form of gambling flourished.
Likewise the football season affords a
source for the culture of the evil.
The danger of betting lies not in the
money lost or the money gained with
out equivalent. The danger lies in
the passion or craze which is develops
for getting something for nothing. It
is the thief qualities which it develops
that are dangerous. While an honest
gambler is not a thief, he resembles
one in that he gives no returns. But
whether it is pitching pennies at a
crack, playing pitch in the parlor, bet
ting on college athletics, or standing
at the roulette-wheel, the basic motive
is always the same the desire to get
something for nothing. And, however
veiled, that is always essentially a
sordid and vicious desire.
Tn one sense betting is worse than
tsealing. It develops into a passion
and a craze stealing does not. It is
a vicious and contemptible way of get
ling a person's money without giving
any return. It is high gambling that
brings the indictment, but it is small
.gambling that creates the passion thak
leads to the high.
Nothing is more destructive to
morals than gambling. Nothing is
more alluring to men and women of
weak character than the elusive hope
of getting something for nothing. It
is a symptom of a jaded moral sense,
of a tainted honesty and a blunted
honor. Surely college students should
not be addicted to this evil.
STATUS OF WOMAX SUFFRAGE.
Woman suffrage carried in four of
the five states which voted on it at
the last election. It failed in Wis
consin. There is equal suffrage now
In Wyoming. Colorado, Utah, Idaho,
Washington, California, Arizona,
Oregon, Kansas and Michigan. These
states have seventy electoral votes
and two and a half million enfran
The result of the vote on the pro
position in Michigan has greatly en
couraged the equal suffrage leaders.
It means that the cause is advancing
to the East. All the other woman
suffrage states are west of the Mis
sissippi. Michigan's attitude shows
that the demand is not a sectional
one. A New York newspaper says
the tide cannot now be turned.
Plans are being made for early
campaigns in New York, Indiana, Illi
nois. Wisconsin and Ohio. The wo
man suffrage amendment to the con
stitution of Ohio was voted down in
September. The leaders of the wo
men's cause think that Montana and
Nevada are ready now to join the
other Rocky Mountain states in equal
The United States is recognized as
the birthplace of the idea of woman
suffrage although the country has
been slow in establishing it. The
London Times has conceded this to
our country and recalls that a de
mand was made for equal suffrage
when the Constitution was con
structed In 17S9. But the proposition
was not tried out in this country
until it was put in the constitution
or Wyoming in 18C9.
New Zealand led the world and es
tablished equal adult suffrage in
1S93, it being the first place to try it.
Finland and Norway have followed,
Great Britain is now the center of
America, though, is
'the place where real progress is be-
made. This country' is beginning
to show the world that a suffragette
is not necessarily a window smasher
or a chair-puller but rather the
mother in the home asking for a
right to help in the making of the
laws so fundamental and vital to her
own welfare and the safety of her

T. E. Jones, trainer of the Tiger
teams. "A man who wants to be

willing to train." And with that he
told all that was required to become
proficient in that sport.
Cross-country runners come in all
sizes and shapes, said Mr. Jones.
Most of them, however, are of a rangy
The method of training them is
similar to the methods employed in
other sports which require great en
durance. " The first day I start
them out easy, and run them about
a mile and a half," said the coach,
apparently deeming that distance
a mere trifle. " By the third day the
men will run half a mile more. At
the end of the week they will run
three miles. And at three miles they
I wi" remain until their muscles be
come strong, and their hearts devel
oped. A coach can tell when this has
taken place, either by feeling the run
ners, or by merely looking at them.
"Heart, lungs and muscles are the
three points to be worked on in train
ing the runners. And it is not hard
muscles that we want, either. When
muscles are hard they are not In good
condition. Good muscles are soft

when all strength seems to have
