"A BACHELOR'S HONE YMOON" ILLINOIS
Chicago, Oct. 21. The gridiron pro
gram of the "big eight" conference
may be termed at the turning point of
the season. The defeated teams have
to wait another year before making
claims to the conference title. Illinois
was prepared to contest with Chicago
with lesa hope than a week ago, owing
to the injury of Captain Roberts. The
game at Minneapolis between Minne
sota and Nebraska was regarded as
one of the mot important by earn
team. At Madison, Colorado college
The games between Harvard and
Amherst; Yale and Army: PrinreTen
and Navy, And Pennsylvania and
Brown were regarded as the most im
portant in the east today.
At West Point rain turned the fiid
'into n quagmire. b;!t the storm had no
terrors for th teams. Yale was de
termined, if possible, to wipe out its
defeat of last year.
At Annapolis, the Titrera were to ':
put to a severe test, as the Navy has
been progressing with fewer ups ar.d
down than Princeton.
Harvard felt no ureat concern re
cardinsr the outcome with Amherst.

As typical of the best and most up-to-date practice in the central electrical
6tation industry in our larger cities, thre is no investment more worthy of
investigation than the stock of the Commonwealth Edison Company of Chicago.
Notwithstanding its astonishingly rapid growth and its present strategic position,
this Company is as yet doing only a fraction of the business that it will do
in the near future.
The Cox imonwealth Edison Company is at present retailing electricity in s
territory that covers 200 square miles, but that territory is only "tapped," v to
speak. There is expert authority for the statement that three times the present
volume of business should naturally come to the Company's Central Station.
Yet, gigantic as is the retail business of the Commonwealth Edison Company,
it fotms only one-third of its total business, two-thirds of which is wholesale. It
Bupplies electric ity to 120 miles of street and elevated railway track and its ser
vice to smaller Central Stations extends h miles to the north, 55 miles to the south
and C5 miles to the west of Chicago.
A very considerable portion of the Company's wholesale business ?s concerr.ed
in the sale of electricity for light and power to manufacturers. In this field there
is still opportunity for a vast increase of business in replacing private power plant
with the more economical Central Station service.
The Commonwealth Edison Company represents an investment r,f ov-r
70,000, "00, and is paying dividends at the rate of 7 per annum on its capital
stock. The future prospects of this stock are indicated by the recent advance in
the dividend rate from (Yfo to 7o. At the present market price of about gl 30.00
per share, the net return to the investor is about Tt&. While the stock was pay
ing C dividends it sold at average prices that yielded a smaller net return. This
justifies us in the belief that Commonwealth Edison stock is now a more debirabio
investment than ever before.
Commonwealth Edison stock is listed on the Chicago Stock Exchange.
We recommend this stock as an investment of exceptionally high character,
paying 7 dividends, ar.d as le;:;g exempt from taxation under Illinois lawi.
Full iiiforriatiun will be gladly supplied in answer to all inquiries.
