lection for states that have no pri
mary laws.
Representation in a national con
vention's hall consists of one dele

ty that cast fewer than l!5,0(M) votes
for president in a state shall have one
delegate and one alternate at large for
each congressman at large.
In the case of a state which has no
primary law, the national committees
shall incorporate in their calls for
nominating conventions a requirement
that all expressions of preference for
presidential candidates, and the se
lection of delegates and alternates
shall be made through a primary elec
tion conducted by the party organiza
tion in each state.
Any political organization which
cast five per cent of all the votes cast

A small boy in Morocco is not a
very important person, or a very in
teresting one when thought of a way
off there, but Mustafa, Mohammed
and Haraado, when tumbling on the
Orpheuin stage with Miss Emma
Francis, in her whirlwind dances are
Their oriental costumes, brown
skins, raven hair fcd big smiling
brown eyes save them a decidedly
foreign appearance, but their manner
was quite like the average American
child as they told of their distant
homes and native customes. They
are all older than their size and man
ner indicate and while they seem
small and almcst delicate, they are
in reality remarkably strong with
wonderful power of endurance, being
especially strong in the trunk and
How did they happen to come to
this country? What was their prep
aration for their work? Are they
going to stay here? What was their
life and what are their ambitions?
Life in Morocco is very different,
they said. The houses are low and
white and not at all like ours. Tum
bling and acrobatic work are natural
to them. The work of their act is
very much like their games. About
three years before they came to this
country they entered the school of
Sie Hassan Ben Ali. where they were!
taught reading, writing and numbers
and at the same time were strength
ened and instructed in the greater
secrets of tumbling. Three years is
long enough to become sufficiently ex
pert In their art to secure a contract.
At the end of that time if they show
sufficient talent, Sie Hassan Ben Ali
makes a contract with the f.ither by
which they are brought to this coun
try and positions secured for them
under his protection. In turn he is
under a bond to ensure their safety.
The boys are wonderfully enthusias
tic over their work and when asked
If they wanted to do what they were
doing they replied in the affirmative.
What will you do after you have work
ed a long while and made a lot of
money? was asked. We want to buy
gardens in our country and live there
always, was the reply.
"The girls go to school only to
learn to sew," they said.
Miss Francis is a charming Ameri
can girl, born and bred in the profes
sion. Her act with the boys is ab
solutely unique. She has been able
to keep it nearly seven years, but of
course, is careful to introduce new
features so that it never grows en
tirely old. She not only keeps up with
the present but predicts the future.
Her novel featuro at present is her
Futurist dancing. She is a pupil of
the Russian school. Her dream is
undoubtedly a ranch in Colorado, as
she is a native of that state, while
her boys see between the whirls of
their dancf a verdant and blooming
spot on the edge of Allah's garden.
Rev. Merriit C. Reale of South
Rend is one of the first men in the
United States to get one of the new
American flags since It has been re
designed by Wayne Whipple of
Philadelphia and has been approved
by Pres. Wilson and the secretary of
The flag was sent to Mr. Reale
shortly after it received the otlicial
approval from Mr. Whipple, who was
an old college friend.
The changes made in the pattern
are in the star arrangement in the
blue background. At present it is im
possible to add another star without
breaking up the arrangement of the
field. According to the design to bo
used in the future, 13 stars will be
placed in a star arrangement in the
center of the blue field.
These 13 will represent the original
states and around them will be a cir
cle of stars, one for each state that
entered the union in the ISth century.
Outside of this circle will be still an
other with stars farther apart. These
will represent the states that came
into the union since tho 18th century.
There will be plenty of room in the
outer circle to add new stars in case
more states come into the union.
Rev. Mr. Reale placed the flag fin
exhibition at St. Paul's M. K. church.

Two of Notre Dame's star football
men. "Gus" Dorlas, quarterback, and
