Paike H. Davis Looks Up Old Records
to Compare Gridiron Feats of
Past Years
Parke H. Davis, the Princeton foot-
ball authority, spurred on by the mag-
nitude of the scores rolled up by sev-
eral of the 1914 elevens, has examined
the rrecords of the past to see if the
scoring feats of past years could com-
pare with those of last season. He
finds that the honor of the largest
score goes to the Harvard team of
1886, which rolled up a total of 761
points to 41 points for its opponents.
This team suffered defeats! at the
hands of both Yale and Princeton. To
the Minnesota team of 1904, which
closed its season with 724 points to
its opponents' 12, goes the palm for
having amassed the greatest number
of points without being beaten.
Michigan secures sixth place in the
list. The team of 1902 made a total
score of 644 points, while the oppos-
ing elevens were making 12 points.
The teams of 1904 and 1903 secure
tenth and eleventh places respectively.
The former scored 567 points and the
latter made 565.
The men of Yost secure a large
share of honors in having three teams
on the list of those who have totalled
400 points or more in a single season.
Harvard stands first with six and
Michigan second with three. The only
other institution to have more than'
one team on the roll is Princeton,
which has two. There are only 20
elevens in the history of football in
this country whose season's record
surpasses the 400 mark.
The team to set the record in 1914
was Everett high school of Boston, in-
terscholastic champions of the coun-
try. This team made an even 600:
points without being scored on. Other
remarkable scores of the last year
are: Missouri School of Mines 560,
opponents 0; Oklahoma 431, opponents
96; Washington and Jefferson 369, op-
ponents 54, and North Carolina 344,
opponents 49.

cial attraction, the attendance at the
faculty concert given yesterday after-
noon was the largest on record for the
season. Musically too, perhaps, it was
the most successful of the series given
to date. The program comprised num-
bers by the school of music string
quartet, piano numbers by Mrs. Rhead,
and vocal numbers by Miss Allen.
Smetana's difficult string "Quartet
in E minor," a curious mixture of gay
and sombre Bohemian melodies, was
well chosen, and well received. Al-
though the parts were not always well
balanced, the ensemble effect was
quite satisfactory.
Mrs. Rhead played two piano num-
bers with. characteristic refinement,
and artistic finish. The Mozart, "Pas-
torale an# Variations," a glorified
shepherd-song, was played with the
delicacy that belongs to it, while the
Tausig, "Nachtfalter Caprice," showed
her ability to meet considerable tech-
nical demands.
Miss Allen was easily the favorite of
the program. She appeared twice,
first in a group of German songs, and
concluding the program with the "Bird
Song" from "Pagliacci." Her voice is
of a clear and strong quality, and she
sings with excellent style. Her stage
presence is charming. On the whole,
her first group of songs was more sat-
isfactory than the operatic number,
which lacked somewhat in spontaneity.
The accompaniments were effective-
ly interpreted by Miss Frances Ham-
il ton.
Former Student's Fate Causes Anxiety
Some anxiety as to the fate of
Arthur Davin, ex-'13, who enrolled in
the Y. M. C. A. corps of the English
army last fall, is felt by friends in this
city. Shortly before Christmas he was
heard from as encamped in England
waiting for orders from the front, but
since that time no word has come from

Squad Trains Consistently to Prepare
for Syracuse Meet Held
Next Week
Although Coach Farrell has been
watching the performances of the re-
lay runners with greater attention the
past few days, than he has the rest of
the squad, nevertheless the remainder
of the athletes have been under close
surveillance with the Syracuse meet
.but a little over a week away.
"Les" Waterbury has been working
out daily in the high jump, and has
been clearing 5 feet S consistently.
One point strongly in Waterbury's
favor is the fact that he always seems
to be at his best under the stress of
competition. He rarely falls down
when the occasion is pressing, which
is a big point in the favor of any ath-
lete. Corbin's two marks of 5 feet 6
which he has established in the last
two meets, shows that he is improv-
ing, or else that he also possesses the
ability to come through when the oc-
casion demands.
Corbin's hurdling has been first-
class thus far, in fact he has proved
Michigan's most reliable performer
over the sticks. Wilson is also a val-
uable man indoors over the barriers,
and these two youths form a valuable
duo in the hurdles.
Although "'Bo" Wilson failed to clear
the bar at 12 feet in the Notre Dame
meet, he has reached the height re-
peatedly, and is good for it if he is
pushed. From present indications,
Wilson will find all kinds of competi-
tion at Syracuse, for Curtis, the
Orange pole vaulter, has been doing
around 12 feet consistently. The dual'
between these two should prove one of
the feature events on the program,
when the two universities hook up in
their encounter. Cross has been doing
over 11 feet repeatedly, and if either
of these men falls down, he will be on
hand to cop off the honors.
C. Cross will have a struggle on his
hands in the shot put, for although
Syracuse has no particular star, she
has several men who are fairly good.

108 E. Washington St.

Cross has been putting the shot over
40 feet regularly the past week, and
should show better than at any time
this year.
Burby, Fontana and John tried for
the 500-yard position on the medley
relay team, and although the job went
to M. G. Robinson by the right of con-
quest, they all made good showings.
Burby turned in the best record out-
side of Robinson. Unless Syracuse
springs a surprise or uncovers a bet-
ter 440 man that she has shown yet,
the Maize and Blue may walk away
with all three places in the quarter.

Campus Open Air Concerts Will Begin
Soon as Weather Permits
Receipts from -the "Band Bounce"
according to Mr. S. J. Hoexter, man-
ager of the Varsity band, will amount
to approximately $1,000, which will be
sufficient to take care of all the back
debts of the organization, and leave a
substantial surplus.
From now on attention will be cen-
tered upon preparing for the campus
open-air concerts, which will start as
soon as the weather permits. Re-
hearsals will be'started within the
next few weeks.
New pieces are being added to the
library of the musicians from time
to time, and the, Varsity musicians
hope to present a series of attractive

Summer baseball, the different
schedules, and other affairs of import

pation of university athletes in profes-
sional baseball during the summer
will be thoroughly discussed.

Shows Development of City from Early
Greece to Present Day
Civic improvement, the new course
in landscape design, given for the first
time this semester by Prof. Aubrey
Tealdi, is meeting with considerable
enthusiasm from students and others
interested in the development of the
modern city. More than 50 persons
from all colleges and schools of the
university have enrolled in the course.
The course shows the'development
of the city from its earliest beginning
in Greece to the present advanced
state, and has, for its primary object,
the instruction of the college student
in some of the advanced theories of
civic improvement. The laying out of
a modern city with its parks, civic
centers, public buildings, streets and
boulevards, forms one of the principal
elements of study. Transportation,
housing, the location of railroad sta-
tions, public squares and playgrounds,
all being important considerations in
the ideal urban life,, are treated at
considerable length.
Any student in the university may
enroll in the course as no prerequi-
sites are required. Prospective archi-
tects, municipal and civil engineers,
lawyers and sociological workers will
find the course of especial benefit.
Women's number of the Gargoyle,
edited by Alice Wiard, '15, as-
sisted by associate editors Margaret
Foote, '15, and Judith Ginsberg, '15,
will appear upon the campus today at
noon. The feature of this issue of the
humor publication is the consistency
with which the male portion of the
campus comes in for criticism. The
art work has even exceeded expecta-
tions, and the brilliantly colored cover
executed by Ethel Hosmer, '17, makes
the book unusually attractive.

Spring Vacation
with its good times
is but a few weeks away.
And you've no idea how
Proud the folks are of their son
home from school. The boys
"back in the village" look you
over critically for news from the
fore-front of style. And the girls-
well you know what they will ex-
pect. So look your smartest. The
spring styles have an exceptional air of
distinctiveness. Grey overplaids in suits
are new, and Covert top coats can be
seen on the Avenues, We show them
