WINNING THE GAME

The victory Thursday was accom
rli"red b) a team which lacked not at

In athletics as well as in politics wom
an is beginning to gain attention. An
athletic association for women was an
unthought-cf organization on the college
campus of a co-educatonal school even
as late a thirty jears ago, but now it is
almost as active as the athletic organi
zation of the men. In the Unitcrilv of
Missouri women are not onl) required
to enter into athletics but they plat ten
nis, hockey and ba-chall aid go hiking
with a much enthusiasm as the men.
The fact that practically all of the
American wnmen picked for the interna
tional track meet for women held in
France the last of Augu-t were chosen

just discrimination. Statistics have been

The Eim-tein theory of relativity with
its basic concept that all things are rela
tive to the individual again arises as a
subject for discussion among investiga

The eclipse of the sun last September
and the results obtained by various in
vestigators with their recording photo
graphic plates, who set up their para
phernalia in the line of the ecbpe. is
expected to proie of greater importance
than any previous eclipse in the history
of astronom) because of the fact that
the result obtained is expected to prove
or disprove the Einstein theory.
But the general public will never know
whether or not the theor) is right or
wrong if it depends upon the results ob
tained b) the expeditions which are
triving to determine some of tbe im
portant points of the theory, according
to Dr. E. R. Hedrick of the mathematics
department of the School of Engineering.
"The general public does not even un
derstand the Newton theory although
the) ma) think that they do," said Doc
tor Hedrick. ".Most persons might as
well try to determine whether a Hindu
poet is greater than a poet of China.
Ver) few will ever go to the trouble of
learning either of the two languages in
order to stud) the works of the two
poets. And very few persons will ever
stud) the first principals of astronom) or
geometry to find out about either the
Newton or Eintein theory."
The experiments conducted by these
expeditions striving to photograph the
movement of the sun and the stars
whose light we see, although they are
behind the sun, are expected to be of
the utmost importance to facts concern
ing the material universe, explains Dr.
"The Einstein theory claims, as one of
the fundamental-, lliat all space is
'warped' b) the mass of antthing contain
ed in it. This is expected to be proved
b) the results of the eclipse, because, if
this theor) is correct, some of the stars

Doctor Hedrick explains the above
statement taken from the editorial!
columns ol tbe Uinstian Science .Monitor
"These men are trying to take pictures
of the sun and stars that may be behind
it to determine the exact movement of the
star as the sun passes and the star casts
its light in a curved line around the edge
of the sun. The stars that are in reality
behind the sun are expected to move, but
the movement of stars is so slight that the
general public cannot imagine it.
"If a person were to try and look at a
period, at the end of a sentence, that was
a cil) block awaj, they might get some
idea of the space through which the star
motes in casting its light around the sun.
That is what .these investigators are try
ing to photograph and it is of a very deli
Regardug the statement that if the
Dnstein theor) is proved true the entire
mas of theories of geometry will have
to be complete!) recast and that the gen
eral!) accepted ideas of almot every
thingtime, space, energ) will hate to
be altered. Doctor Hedrick said.
"We will continue to teach the arae
principles of geometry and man will keep
on budding railroads with the same
theories as before. The Einstein theory
will not effect such things in such a way
that we will notice it. The effect could
onl) be noticed at a distance from the
earth as is the sun, and the difference
there will be so slight tliat most persons
cannot imagine it.
"The Newton theory had some things
that were slightl) off. The planet Mer
cury is out of line about fort) seconds of
a minute once in ctcr) 100 )ears. But
few persons can realize how slight this
"The Einstein theor) is an important
one and is of great interest to man) per
sons but it i exceedingly hard to under
stand. Most persons do not realize how
little of the theory the) do understand,"
said Doctor Hedrick.

MILLIONAIRES AND LAW
There is a notion everywhere that men
of wealth, no matter how sincere, can
not serve the interests of those lower in

chosen as representatitcs of the lower
classes. When Lenin took oter the Rus

that a mm of his intellectual standing
would not be able to co-operate with the
proletariat, and predictions were eten
made that he would betra) his followers,
in Englang, the great iconoclast, George
Bernard Shaw, himself one of the millionaire-radicals
