A Monster Paper Gotten Up bs the
The W omens' edition of The Daily,
which will appear next week, will ce-
tainly be a surprise. It will be a wholly
new feature for The Daily. Though.
there are special editions every year on
account of athletics contests of victor-
ies an edition occasioned exclusively
by co-education is a novelty.
All of tlte articles published in tihte
edition wili be collected by the girls.
They will not necessarily all be writ-
tten by the co-eds themselves. Most of
the articles in fact will be written by
members of the faculty. A few of
them are by prominent members of the
student body. But all of them have beent
written upon subjects selected by the
managig editor and her assistant.
The planning of this has taken an im-
mense amount of time and thought.
The paper will be unusually large-
being expected to contain about 32 pages.
It still have a yellow. and blue cover and
be done up in book form. As there is
no special advertising secured, it will be
mostly solid reading matter.
In regard to subject matter, almost
every possible phase of student life will
be discussed, mostly from a co-ed's
standpoint. There will be articles on
the growth of the University, athletics,
college politics, co-education, sorori-
ties, etc. Many of these articles will be
illustrated by cuts..
On accouut of the immense amount of
work necessary to the arranging of all
this copy, the publishers cannot get out
this edition until next week.
The list of editors is as follows: Man-
aging editor and business manager,
Louise Frances Dodge; editors, Vera
Chamberlain, Georgia Suber, Helen F..
Sage, Caroline Culver, Frances E.
Clarke, Marguerite Gibson, Florence
Hall, Mary Goddard, Annie E. Car-
penter, Katherine G. Hine, Sybil Stew-
art, Babyn Bowen, Victoria Fohey. It
will be sold at ten cents a copy and the
proceeds divided equally between the
Alumni Association and Barbour Gym--
Summarq o Gound Gained b the
Twto Teams Thanksgiving Dat.
The Daily has prepared a careful
summary from the best records obtain-
able of the groupd gained by both teams
in the Thanksgiving day game.
O'Dea kicked a total of 385 yards in
the first half in eight trials-an aver-
age of nearly 49 yards. Sweeley kicked
a total of 150 yards in four trials-an
average of a little over 37 yards. These
distances include the distance from the
kicker to the point at which theebait
was stopped and returned, and not to the
point at which the ball struck the
ground. Driver in the second half punt-
ed (including kick-offs) a total of 150
yards in five trials-an average of 30
yards. This short gain is due to the
fact that he stood nearly 2o yards back
of his line when he puntetd. But O'Dea
stood far back also. Keena kicked off
across the goal line (55 yard's) and
punted twice for gains of 65 and 6u
yards respectively-a total of ifo yards
Wisconsin was able to make practic-
ally no gain around our ends-a totai
of 15 yards in both halves, and returned
punts a less distance. These figures are
the greatest evidence of the ~tuperior

in the fact that gains could not be made A VALUABLE GIFT

Athletic Finances.
It is said that Michigan is $3,500
richer on account of last Thursday's
game. The total attendance was 12,000
and the receipts were $15,000. Expenses
this year were heavy and coaches sal-
ary, traimnig table, supplies, graduate
director's salary, etc, still have to be
paid. With these debts off its hands the
athletic association will have about $1,-
ooo with which to start the spring base-
tall and track season. Harvard and
Yale each receive about $24,000 from the
receipts of the game this fall, and Yale
and Princeton divide about $24,ooo from
their game last Saturday.

The next Faculty Concert will be

Living polyps are of the most bril-
liant color. In a few species, the skel-
etons are red, blue or black,, but in
niost cases they are white, or nearly
so. The pure white specimens have been

colonies into which the are grouped.
Corals inhabit the warus waters of
the ocean between tide water and 15o
feet depth.
Many of the tropical islands are con.-
posed wholly or in part of coral. Some
of the tuors ,solid specimens of coral
are used .for building purposes, being
sawed out of the reefs in square blocks.
Prof. J. B. Steere says many of the
smaller churches near the sea coast in
the Philippine Islands are built of coral.
In damp weather the interior of the
buildings is filled with a smell of de-
composing animal matter, which arises
from the coral. It is also burned and
used for lime. Many of the specimens le
the cases come from the Beal-Steere col-
lection. gathered by Prof. J. B. Steere in
the Philippines.
