To the IMItor nf the UniTersity Mls.-ourlau: A great many individuals and or ganizations in Columbia will doubtless be desirous of helping their unfortunate neighbors to have a cheerful Christ mas this year. To these the Charity Organization Society offers its services, not to take their places, but to help them get together and co-operate, in order that the good work may be done with mutual understanding on the part of all. and hence the field covered most wisely and effectively. The C. tl. S. Hoard, at their regular session this week arranged for a meeting to be held at the courthouse on Monday. Dec. 14. at J p. m. Individuals ami icprescn tatives of societies, who wish to give Christmas baskets to the poor, are in vited to attend this meeting, or to send to me secretary, liev. Henry r. llorton. before the meeting, the names of fami- ! lies they wish to help. The lists re ceived will be compared, and in tin case of duplicates, the person best ac quainted with the family in ipicstiou i can be given sole re-pon-iliilit v. In , this way the Held will be most effect- ' ivcly covered, and self-respecting poor pel sons, instead of a public dole will receive- their share of Christmas cheer, j fiom one kindly hand, without pain ful and harmful publicity. 'Hie society wishes merely to help organi7e the work, leaving actual presentation of the gifts to each giver. Name- sent in will be tieated as con fidentially given and will not be made a matter of record, so that no fears iii-Til be entertained by tho-e co-operat ing that the recipients of their bounty will be (oiifti-,-,1 with the beneficiaries of public funds. To those, however, who would like to take pait in the work, and have no particular families in mind, the society can furnish the name of some family whose condition and needs are known to it. The Charity Organization Society has no desire to pry into the affairs of others, but by acting as a '"clearing; house of charities,"' seeks to enable all charitable organizations or individuals to do their own best work in their own best way. without interfering with oth ers, or having the good u-siilts of their own efl'oits undone by other distribu-tu-s. and without causing unintentional injury to needy people.

The Japanese Football. One of the odd things which strikes one in Japan is the football, so differ ent from the sound made by shoe leath er, filling the ears in -ay crowded station in Tokio with its European looking trains, platforms, ticket offices, book-tails and other familiar objects! The musical clicking noise of the wood en sandals or clogs, which are worn out of doors by all chts-cs of Japau-i-e and which an- raised above the giouuil at varxing heights, according to the tatf of the roads, is one of the niot characteristic bits of detail of the country, and any picture afterwards let-ailed to the mind has this clinkety clink, clinkety clink as a running ac companiment. The Queen. Where Police Erred. As a result of the annual Fieshman Sophomore f ra . the students and faculty of Armour Institute of Tech nology are aroused to a point of ex treme indignation, owing to the ac tion of the police in intfifi-ring in the affair. It seems that the two lower classes had gone forth to battle in good spirit, but tin police thought that it was a brutal slaughter, and all hands were promptly taken in to tin- nearest police station and arraigned on charges of disorderly conduct. Ac cording to the students of Armour, the newspapers misrepresented the entire case much to the detriment of the school. TELLS EIGHT NEW "DECISIVE" BATTLES III EDWARD CREASY, in his well known work published in 1851. put the number of really decisive battles of the world at fifteen. He lie gan with Marathon and ended with Waterloo. A new edition of his book has just been issued by a New York publisher. It contains a notice of eight additional battles which, in the opinion of the editors, should lie added to Sir Ed ward's list. They are Queliee. York town. Vicksburg. Gettysburg. Sedan. Manila Hay. Santiago and Tsii-Shima. Quebec and lorktown. it will be ob served, occuried over half a centurv before he wrote, llul he neglected the first, which decided the English con quest of this continent, and passed over the latter in favor of Saratoga. Many will agiee with his judgment on the latter point. If Yorktown was the curtain. Saratoga was the great turn ing point of the Revolutionary drama. Vick!iirg and Oettysburg. the tri umphant tci initiations of which were practically contemporaneous, take their place among the divisive struggles by unquestioned title. The two contests killed the rebellion and assured the preservation of the American Union a world event of the first importance. Which of the two contributed most to the end It is hard to say. Gettys burg bludgeoned the Confederacy's head, while Vicksburg diseinliow-eleil it. Roth were perhaps necessary. Few will question tin- divisive result United States a power in the Pacific and thus brought on it new responsi bilities. They made impossihl,. its former careless attitude toward inter national affairs. In a sense they con verted what was formerly a "potential" world power into an active world pow er. Both were slight engagements from a military standpoint. But a slight engagement may divide important is sues. Time and a fuller perspective are needed to settle whether the-e two battles belong to the greatly d.vi-ive class. As to the naval battle of the Sea of Japan no such question arises. It was a trilh" decisive strn"h. It" llnia could have held the sea or disputed it on equal terms, the Russo-Japanese War might have ended differently. The battle gave the last blow to Russian hopes. It made Japan a woild power. That much is dear even now. After a lapse of half a century what more momentous results may not be traced back to the battle of Tsii-Shima Chicago Inter-Ocean.

It shut the door finally on the old loo-e-jointed German confederation idea and ileli fiitely welded the elements (into an empire of the first rank. This eff.vt was. of course, infinitely more im portant than the internal changes it insured in France. The fall of impe rialism meant little to any other na tion. But the rise of Oermany to first place on the Continent was a true w arid-fact. All Fraternities Abolished. Superintendent Frank F. Bunker of the Berkeley, Cal.. public school, ha, in formed the students that unless tin charter of every fraternity and society in the schools is returned at once to the national headquarters, tho-e who retain memberships will i. .summarily expelled from the schools. Irf. Bunker de clares that the fraternities .!.., n.v nnity and harmony, promote cliiiues and interfere with studies. Dictionary Abandoned. The work of compiling a great tivh nical dictionary, which was Iiegun under the auspices of the Association of Ger man Engineers, has been abandoned on account of the great cost, which it was discovered, would lie four times greater than originally contemplated. There is great need of just such a dictionary as was proposed in all the arts, sciences and crafts, and the decision of the Ger man Engineers will lie heard with re- Manila Bay and Santiago made the gret by workers all over the world. 1 .!&&&, aL frjfjm?t ..
