IN FALL GAME
Michigan and Harvard Have Met
Three Times in Past
Those who rcud the announcement
received yesterday from Cambridge to
the effect Michigan has accepted Har
vard's invitation lo meet on the grid
iron on October III next fall, may
imnrine that this will be the Ill's I
meeting between these teams, leaders
111 their respective Koctiolis. Such is
not the case, however, for Michigan
and Harvard have fa e, each other
t hree I lines in t he past.
Mole than T.'l years ago the Maize
and Dlue and the Crimson clashed on
the football Held and there were two
other games, the last of which came
In the fall of lVi.-,. The Jirst battle
was played In ISM and it resulted in
a 4 to 0 victory for Harvard. Just
what this four represented cannot, '..e
told at this time, for the scoring rules
were (iieer in those days and there is
1.0 description of the contest available.
The following season, Mi. higan did
not have a regular team at all, but
footliall was resumed in schedule. The
Crimson again won. but had n. hard
lime doing It, lis the score of : lo 0
attests. After this scrap the two riv
als parted company Tor pj years, re
newing their conflict 'n X!tri, when
Harvard won another 4 to 11 victory.
One thing that may stand in the
way of a game next fall Is the fa
that the Michigan team has fo make
trip to Philadelphia in November to
play Pennsylvania, and possibly it
would not car.- to attempt s'tiothor
long voyage to Cambridge in the same
year that peimsy is attacked on
Franklin field. The team also must
go to Syracuse in 1MI4, if it continues
relations with the Orange, which, ae
(ording to latest reports, it intends to
A Joiirm y to Cambridge on Octo
ber 31. following one to Syracuse prob
ably a week earlier than that and
followed only a fortnight later by the
Philade'phia Jaunt, would entail a lot
of traveling, and there might be sotiu
objection to the schedule on this ac
count. Still the Michigan players are
required to keep up in their classes all
through the season, and if they cannot
be in attendance every day must

TOUR WAS PROFITABLE
P.ay and Varden, the Knglisli pro
fessional golf players, have returned
home. Their trip through this coun
try extended slightly over three
months. In addition to the cliamp-
lonrhip, tournaments and practice
games, they took part In nearly 4i
thirty-six hole matches. They receiv
ed ?!() for each Ilti-ln le match and
have received nearly $12,too. In the
ol, days even the best professionals
would be content to play a. match for
fLTi a side bet. Put in the old days the
professional did not rank much above
tho first lass caddie. Now the load
ers, at all events, are n Raided as al
most infallible uuthorilier. on the game.

U. 8. SCHOOLS IMPRESS PARISIAN.
Power of Education and Amiability of !
Students Please Academician.
Paris, Dec lfi. Kmlle J'.oiitrox, the
French Academician, was particularly
impressed during his recent trip In the
Fnited States by the tremendous faith
in the power of education which he
everywhere encountered. In this con
nection he says:
"Nowhere els' in the world is mole
faith placed in the powers id' iristrue- j
ti..p ami moral education, to increase
Ihe capacity, the wisdom and Ihe moral
qualitii'H of man."
"I was greatly touched. ' he contin
ues, "by the attention paid ine hy Am
erican students and by their conil.l
ing amiability, and it was not difficult
for me to believe their maslcrs when
I was tohl o the spirit of duly and
morality which prevailed among them.
The prasers with whbh the universi
ties are opoi'cd each morning are not
merely a vain formality. P.eligion In
America is above all a question of
mental perioiistiess which may be ex
pressed in the well-known verses of
"'When duty whispers low. Thou
The youth replies: I can.' "
Mr. Doiitroux adds 11 note of warning
in reference to the new Princeton
iragnate College, of which one of the
principal Ideas is, he says, lo create a
enter of culture on American soli
which will supply at lioine the equiva
lent of til" culture which students in
the past used lo come to the Old World
lo seek. 1
"It is thought that 1 I. Inviting the
masters of Kiiropoan, I'niv ersiiies to
lecture in America. -be im r-nlr
will be oMaincd as by sending Ameri
can students lo Kuropo,' he sas. and
I hc'l goes on to express doubt as to the
outcome for the reason that Prince
ton will, of' necessity, be without that
intangible but potent influence of post

IN PACT AGAINST FAIR.
England and Germany Reported
Derlin. Dec. It!. It has been decided
to withdraw the bill for the appropria
tion of $.-.011,000 for derman represen
tation at tho Panama-Pacific exposi
tion at San Francisco. This step was
taken owing to the strong object i. n.-
raised by several state ministers.
When the bill came up for farther
discussion in the .ini(cria! parliament
Finest D.issermann read th commit
tee's report, stating the arguments of
the ministerial representative agaiiut
participation in the exposition. The re
port referred also to statements made
to the committee which arc said I
have referred to agreement between
C01 many and Croat Drltain to stand
together in the matter.
Dr. Theodore Dow aid of the ministry
of the Interior, who was Herman c mi
missioner at the St. I.onis oxpositaa..
then rose and reiterated the otli.-ial oh.
lections to Kirtieipatioi saying "he
