Fears That Pastime Would Interfere With Military Course Cause Aban donment of Game. After a tenure of almost, forty years the great American game of football will be abolished at llaverford college this season. It was believed that the pastime would materially Interfere with the students' army training course. Wednesdays and Saturdays both big days for football, will be de voted to military work. Interelass games alone will struggle for existence. An entirely different program has been adopted by Swart hmore, which was approached on the subject. Here the schedule will be played out as planned, unless government regula tions forbid such precedure, which h unlikely. According to Dean Alexander ot Swart hmore, "the students need recre ation and as football provides the nec essary sport the Institution will, if pos sible, continue competition." The annual struggle with llaverford, which must now be abandoned, came as a rather severe blow to the Garnet, but failed in any way to alter its de termination to see It through. Dr. Koy Mercer will be retained and the sport run on the best basis possible. 8on of Olambala and Nightfall Nvf Speedier Than Whan Ha Droka Down Colt Waa 8ufferar of Autointoxication.

Ins the corn crop. With the exception j of chickens, they are the most nnmer- ous of all farm animals, and are grown for market on more farms than any j other stock. Hog raising has probably made more clear money for the corn I belt farmers than any other enterprise, j In view of this one might expect to j find hogs the best housed of any ani : ma Is on the farm, but the opposite is ! the case. It is still hard for many 1 farmers to get rid of the notion that I anything is good enough for a hog. ; Yet there is no animal on the farm j which requires better protection from j cold than the hog; none for which a i I good bed is more necessary, and none I so much In need of sunshine ns the when It Is most needed fhfi'c. indeed, n hog house with the windows In tho proper position Is rnrely seen. iMrert sunshine should sMfce the floor In every pen for as many hours In day na possible at the time v in n thn pigs are farrowed. Nanrly everyone realizes this Is n mr.ttef of the gr lit est Importance, hut too ofUn the build er does not take the trorble to I'm 1 out whether he Is getting It or not. Or dinarily the farmer haa no means of ascertaining where to put the windows so to get the maximal.', amount of fumshlne at the time h? rants it un less he happens to be building Just nt that time, which Is very ur.usiial.

Advantages of Colon?- House. Whether the large houe with indi vidual pens Is better than the individ ual cot or colony house is an open question, perhaps largely a matter of individual preference. Each has its distinct advantages which cannot bo secured In the other. Many of the best hog raisers are now providing them selves with both types of houses, and this seems to be the most satisfactory method. It is no more expensive in the long run, for all the buildings c.iu be kept In use the year round. In such cases the large houses are used for fan-owing quarters, and ns soon as tho pigs are a week or two old, or as soon EARLY DREAMS NOW RETIRED Sensational Trotter of 1917 Will Be Tried Again Next Spring Met With Accident. lhe sensational Indiana trotting gflding of last year, Early Dreams, 2 :044, Is taking it easy In a paddock it Indianapolis, nnd nothing more will be done with him until early next spring, when he will be put in training again.

OHIO. Disguised as a woman sine last May to avoid being 111 acted as lie was Not Afraid of th harka. Cuba has six vowinf clubs. drafted Into the army, August Schwertfeirer Is alleged t have his father's housekeeper since the recent death of his mother, arrested by a squad of police after the house was surrounded and searched. The young man was found secreted Under a bed tick in an upstairs room. He was taken to jail, and locked up pending orders from the department of Justice, Cleveland. The Schwertfeger home had been searched by the police and govern ment authorities on former occasions, but the man's hiding place was not de termined until recently. Young Schwertfeger Is alleged to have been seen on numerous occasions dressed In women's clothes, but !t was nt first thought that his father had employed n housekeeper since the death of his wife and that the son had left the city. The queer actions of the supposed housekeeper excited suspicion, and a neighbor penetrated his disguise. Draft board officials were Immediately notified. August Schwertfeger, Sr., made a pathetic plea to the draft board when hla son was first ordered to training camp and declared, It la said, thnt If he were drafted he would run a dagger through his son's brain nnd then through his own heart. He made these assertions on several occasions at the draft board rooms, It Is said, nnd the local police nre Investigating re ports that he kept his son nt home under threats that he would kUl him If he went Into the army. In order to have them large enough for the fall demand, nnd producers of market hogs firwl the practice profit able. Early pigs have several marked advantages. Without a good house two litters a year cannot be raised to ad vantage, because the spring pigs must be put off until so late that the fall litters do not get well started before cold weather, but with a good house two litters can well be raised. Most farmers do not feel that they can keep an old sow for one Utter, but with two litters It becomes a different proposi tion. It Is universally conceded that old sows raise better pigs than young ones, and the keeping of old sows en ables one to select and keep only the best producers. Typea of Large Houses. The variety of hog houses Is almost as great as the variety of Individuals using them. It Is rare, indeed, to find even a semblance of uniformity pre vailing In n community. There nre. however, only two or three general types which commend themselves to the careful hog; man. Of the two styles of large houses, the larger has two rows of pens, an alley through the .r.Idrllo, nnd n jog In the roof for win dows to light the north pens, while the smaller has but one row of pens, with an alley and a row of windows on the south side. The double house is much cheaper per pen, and for that reason is to be preferred. Less work Is also required to care for the hogs than where a single row of pens Is used. Probably the cheapest house possible Is a low building with a single row of pens and no nlley, but such a house is much less convenient, especially In stormy weather. In the majority of large hog houses the npper windows are not so placed that sunshine will strike the floor' bers. These houses can be moved from field to field as the pigs are changed from one grazing crnp to another. Their use makes it easier to keep tbo hogs healthy, ns the house may be moved an soon ns one place becomes Insanitary or unclean. There nre two common typr s of col ony houses the box shaped nnd A type house. The box-shaped house is the most desirable of the two. espe cially for those who have a sow and litter to care for. This house has an advantage over tho A-type house in that It is cooler in summer, for the roof Is not so near the floor, thus giv ing more air space. It Is easier to clean, easier to work In, gives better ventilation and admits more sunlight. Tiie box house is usually built eight feet square by six feet high. Tho front of the house is in two sections, each containing a window, and both of which are hinged at the top nnd may be lifted In warm weather. The buck wny is also provided with hinges at the tor, and when raised serves as a shed. The A-type house usually has a floor space of eight feet by six feet, and the boards nsod for the side walls are eight feet long. Under favorable weather conditions the front of the house may be removed to admit sun light and air. Both of these types of houses ore built on runners, so thnt they can be moved about easily. 5 MHUi,lxuxj.xj.j.jxj Aj. . . . xx 2- 1 1 11 rTTTTTTTTT I i'l T I T .
