In the Wittenberg game the regular appointed referee failed to put in an appearance and Wittenberg selected one of Its former players to act as ref eree. He was very Incompetent and was the cause of much dissatisfaction. The play which Camp rules on is as follows: - . Quarterback Jones of Earlham. made 1 forward pass to one of the Quaker backs. While the ball was in the air the referee blew his whistle, declaring the ball out of play, holding It had not been passed out the required five yards from the point of play. However, the ball missed the outstretched hands of the Earlham back and a Wittenberg seized It and ran the length of the field potting It down back of the Quaker goal line. Wittenberg then kicked goal. It "was pointed out to the ref vree that he had called the ball dead before it was seized by the Wittenberg player, but he ruled that the touch down be allowed. "The ball is out of play the minute the referee's whistle la blown," Camp rules in his letter to Vail. , He states that in the recent Yale-West Point game a similar play came up, but the referee called the ball back, not allowing the touchdown.

Mothers In Proverbs. Practically every country has prov erbs about mothers. Here are a few of the most beautiful and lesser known ones: "A mother's love is new every day." "Better lose a rich father than a poor mother." "X father's love is only knee deep, but a mother's reaches to the heart" These three are German. The Hindoos poetically say. "Mother mine, ever mine, whether I be rich or poor." From the Italians we have: "Mother! He who has one calls her; he who has none misses her." The Bohemians say, "X mother's hand is soft even when it strikes." "Mother means martyr" is Russian. A striking one comes from the Swiss: "It is easier for a mother to keep seven children than for seven children to keep a mother." POSTPONED GAME. Richmonds and Entre Nous Meet Tonight.

BUSINESS LACKING IN CITY AFFAIR Councilman Englebert States That the Palladium's Story Was Correct. STREET IMPROVEMENT ENOUGH SPENT ON NORTH 8TH STREET REPAIRS TO PAVE THE THOROUGHFARE FAVORS PAV ING NORTH E STREET. "The story recently published by the Palladium that the city had not gov erned in a business like manner is an absolute fact. Everthing in the ar ticle was accurci3 and a true statement of facts. I ha'. lked with several council members uJ they agree with me in that," stated Councilman H. H. Englebert today. "In the past several years enough money has been spent on making tem porary improvements on Eighth street to pave that street nearly, if not its entire length," he said. Mr. Englebert also stated that the reason council did not support the board of public works in the move ment to pave North E street from Tenth street to Sixteenth street, was because some of the councilmen did not have the backbone to withstand the protests of the effected property owners. He thinks that North E street should be paved to Sixteenth as such an improvement- would save money for the city. Mr. Englebert, in speaking of the two large west side sewers constructed this year, which cost the city alone ap proximately $80,000, said that it was right that the northwest sewer system should have been constructed this year as this improvement had for years been promised the property owners in that section of the city, but he thought the building of the southwest sewer system could have been postpon ed a year or two. "That section of the city has only been a part of the city for two years, but since it has been incorporated into the city it has had street Improve ments, fire alarm boxes, street light ing and other improvements, the cost of which I do not believe the taxes paid by the property owners In that part of the city equals."

EYE FOB AN EYE TOOTH FOR TOOTH POLICY, PUZZLES- (Continued From lage One.) account of the contests for state otfi ces. Republicans Would Gain. On the other hand the republicans would gain through an application of the eye for an eye and tooth for a tooth policy. If they unseat the thrn. senators from Marion county, whic' they would probably do if they startel anything at all, they would gain ttmr senators who would be hold-overs. These three republican senators would serve not only at this session but alo at the session two years hence when a successor to Senator Beveridge is to be elected. And a gain of three votes" for this purpose would not be bad at" all. There is no telling what the poli tical complexion of the 1911 legisla ture will be and it might come in very hand- to have an additional three re-, publican senators to vote (or the re-1 election of Senator Beveridge. Three Contests Pendinr. Soon after the election the three defeated republican candidates for senator in Marlon county filed con-, tests in the superior court here and these contests are still pending. So it would be easy enough for the repub licans in the senate to give them their' seats on the ground that they were ' defeated through fraud. And the sen ate, like the house, is the exclusive Judge of the eligibility and qualifica tions of its own members. There It no appeal from its decision. There fore, if the republicans see fit to seat the three Marion county republicans or any others they can do it without any fear of trouble from any one. Conference Tuesday. This Is one of the very Important matters that will come before the con ference of ' democratic legislators in this city tomorrow. This conference will have to decide Just what course will be pursued In the matter of con testing the seat of Wlckey In the , house, and on the 'decision of this question may depend whether or not there will be a lot of party firework! ' dnrlqg the session. Already several of the democratic ' legislators are in the city for this con- ' ference and nearly all will be here by tonight. Not only are they here but the candidates for senator are here, too. They are the busiest men In the lot. There is wild talk of combina tions and deals and all that sort of ' (thing but there Is no definite evidence that any have been framed up yet. But they win come, all right. Things will be brought around after a little while to where there will be only two candidates. Kern and Slack, just as I have predicted several times. That Is ' the only solution to tb present situa tion. None of the other candidates has a look In, as the matter now stands, and unless there If a miracle -performed before the democratic can- cus is held. Just prior to the opening ' of the session the next United States senator from Indiana will bo either John W. Kern of Indianapolis, or I. Ert Slack, of Franklin. The other candidates may talk, and predict and claim all they please, bnt they have no greater chance of landing the job than that little snow ball has of roll ing un scorched through a certain realm far distant from Indiana.

This he believed to be an excellent way to stop the increase for. he said, "in this church the ratio of su icides to the membership was very small." TO QUIET TITLE.
