But as he missed Hughitt hugged
the oval to his jersey and, jumping
to his feet, swept around the Quaker
line like a jack rabbit with a date
in the next county and late to plant
the ball between the Quaker goal
posts, while the Pennsylvania for
wards fought desperately to get back
through the line they had been pur
posely permitted to penetrate.
Such the perfection of plan and
execution that thousands did not rea-,
lize until the next day that it was a
Yost coup and not an accident. -

A Diagram of Hughitt's Run from Fake Kick Formation, Which Tricked
the Entire Red and Black Eleven.
If the law in every state were as it is in Oregon, forbidding the em
ployemnt in any mercantile establishment of a woman later than 6 p. m.,
it would, of course, interfere greatly with Saturday night shopping; if not
put an end to it.
Which would mean, of course, that the shopping habits of a large per
centage of the population would have to be re-formed. For at present many
wage earners and wives of wage earners find it most convenient to buy on
that night and if the man of the house is to be a partner in the shopping,
that is the only time available to him.
Where it happens as, alas, it sometimes does that the man of the
house, were he not to be collared by the missus under the pretext of a
shopping tour, would be apt to go with his week's pay on a disastrous
shopping tour of his own, amongst wet goods, theclosing of big stores on
Saturday nights would be of doubtful social advantage.
But isn't that rather an argument for more closing rather than less?
Would it not be better for everybody if business of all kinds were kept as
closely confined as possible to the hours of daylight, and the evenings be
left free for recreation and rest?
In those countries of Europe where this has been the practice it does
seem to American visitors as if life for the masses was simpler and less har
ried than it is here. Among store proprietors and sales people it plainly is.
And though earnings may be less, measured in figures, we have not been
convinced that contentment is less. They seem to have excelled most of
us Americans in their ability to get the most of fellowship out of life.
Oregon's experiment will bear watching. If it shall really make for
greater welfare, it will quite certainly spread.
