"In discussing political affairs,"
Prof. Burke Shartel, of the La'w
school, said. "I believe that we of the
faculty are in somewhat the position
of a judge-we should take rather a
"But," Professor Shartell said, "Mr.
Davis seems to be the most logical
man that the Democrats could have
.chosen, after the fracas in Madison
Square Garden. The fact that Mr.
Davis has been an attorney for a num-
ber of big business men in the east,
I do not believe that should be held
against him as a candidate for the
Presidency. It rather indicates that
he is capable as an executive, or he
would not have been entrusted with
the legal business of men like Mor-
"Mr. Davis is a real gentleman,"
said Professor Shartel. "He is known
for his polish and smoothness. He is
essentially an aristocrat. And the
Democrats had to pick a western man
as an antidote for some of the poison
spread about Davis. They were
probably wise in their selection of
Charles W. Bryan as Mr. Davis run-
In speaking of the effect the La
Follette nomination will have upon
the two major parties, Professor Shar-
tell said, "It will be difficulty to tell
just how. much of an inroad LaFol-
lette is going to make in either party.
But Davis may lose a considerable
amount of Progressive Democratic
votes to LaFollette, especially in Cal-
ifornia and the middle west. How-
ever, Governor Bryan may be able to
hold the mid-western Progressive
Demrocats pretty solidly together."
Professor Wright, of the University
of California Law school, who is in-
structor in corporations and agencies
in the law department here this sum-
mer, speaks of Mr. Davis as a man
of great intelligence, well fitted for
executive work. "He is not a particu-
larly forceful public speaker, but is
a very gracious man to meet. He is
a tremendous thinker; a keen law-
yer. But perhaps the fact that his
law practice in New York has included
some of the financial magnates of the
nation, such as the House of Morgan,
may cost him many votes in Novem..
ber, especially among the western
"California thinks a great deal of
Hiram Johnson," said Professor
Wright, "and Davis is not very strong
there. So it is difficult to tell where
many of the progressive votes will
go in that state. The Bryan-Davis
combination, though it is a queer one,
was a clever move on the part of the
Democrats to hold the Progressive
Democratic votes in the west togeth-

SMALLER TELESCOPE TRAINED
ON MOON DURING INSPECTION
More than 470 people visited the Un-
iversity Observatory on Wednesday,
Thursday, and Friday nights, last
week. The first trip started at 8:15
each night. Relays of approximately
50 people an hour were shown the
points of interest by Professor Hus-
sey and his assistants.
A telescope with a 37 5-8 inch lens,
is situated in the larger dome. The
dome revolves electrically until it is
stopped at the proper position, the
shutters are moved back and provid-
ing the temperature is right, the lens
case may be removed. This means
that the observer cannot start work
until 8 o'clock in winter and 9:30 to
10 o'clock in the summer. The lens
must be kept as a nearly constant
temperature to guard against expan-
sion. The telescope is made of an
ordinary open tube through which
light rays travel to a mirror. Rays
are reflected back to a secondary mir-
ror and then to a spectrograph.
In the smaller dome, a telescope
with a 12 inch lens is trained on the
moon every cloudless night. The meth-
od of procedure was that each visitor
was allowed about one minute to climb
up a ladder and take a look at the
a craze for undergoing sensational
experiences. Horseback rides, leaps
over cliffs, sensational airplane tricks
and hair-raising auto stunts cram the
picture, forming the background for
a hilarious series of adventures. Ed-
