U S. LEADING WORLD
IN BUILDING Of SIPS
-PROFESSOR CURTISS
Discussion of the increase in the
United States shipping and the aids
to navigation was given in Prof. R.
H. Curtiss' lecture, "Navigation on the
Great Lakes and High Seas," Thurs-
day afternoon in the Natural Science
auditorium.
"At the begining of the war, the
United States navy was close to the
front in quality, but, nevertheless, a
program for great inc'eases was
made," said Professor Curtiss. "The
merchant marine of this country was
about last, only 9.6 per cent of our
foreign commerce being carried in our
own bottoms, but in March, 1919, such
strides of progress had been made
that 46 per cent was being carried in
our own ships.
"The task of bringing about this
increase was a Herculean one, equal
to that of building the Panama can-
al, but so well did we do our work,
that this year we are leading the
world in the amount of shipping un-
der construction." f
In the remainder of the lecture Pro-
fessor Curtiss told of the instruments
which are used in navigation and of
their purposes.
He explained that many wreck re-
sulted from the failure .of these de-
vices to be true.
where the champ is to be starred in
"The Challenge of Chance," the first
big picture he ever made for the
screen. Willard delayed his training
to complete the film play.
Willard does not appear once in fight
togs in "The Challenge of Chance," but
this does not mean there is no fight-
ing in the picture. In fact, the chain-
pion does more fighting in the feature
than he will at Toledo July 4 whether
lie wins or loses to Dempsey. The
story concerns a ranch foreman who
goes to Mexico to work. He meets a
girl, owner of a string of race horses,
and when he learns that his new boss
is in league with Villa and is trying
to defraud the girl of her racers, he
saves them for her, frustrating the
plans. There is action galore in the
picture and enough fighting to satisfy
the most critical fan.
Arline Pretty plays the leading fem-
inine role opposite the heavyweight
champion. Reviewers say Willard has
proved himself a real actor and one
entitled to a real place among film
stars of today.
WORKS WEST AS WAITER
ON BET TO WIN $3,04
Minneapolis, Minn., July 2.--Spe-
cial).-Three thousand dollars, plu 15
cents an hour and his meals, is the
wage Milton G. Richardson, Lake For-
est, Ill., will receive for one week's
work as a waiter in a restaurant here.
"Seeing how the other half lives,"
Richardson calls it.
A son of G. D. Richardson of Pasa-
dena, better known as "Oil" Richard-
son, he admitted there are "at least
two millions" in the family.
"I was passing through here a week
ago with a friend, George Wesley of
Pasadena," he explained. "We sat in
this very restaurant, and I remarked
what an easy time the waiters must
have. My friend made a wager I
couldn't work here a week.,
"We were on our way to our sum-
mer home at Lake Forest. When I got
home the wager occured to my mind.
I borrowed some clothing from my
butler and came back here.
"My week will be up Wednesday. I
believe there is $3,000 waiting for me."

Richardson is living in a cheap room
and on his waiter wages. If he wants
to keep his job he is "in solid" with
the management.
Flier Crennated When Plane Burns
Hempstead, N. Y., July 2.-Lieuten-
ant Jules Biscayart, an aviator, was
burned to death here today when his
aeroplane, a new type of machine in
which he was making an initial flight,
fell. The gasoline tank exploded.
Biscayart, who resided here, was re-
cently married.

SICILY HAS ART WORS
Of MANY CIVILITIONS
-- PROFESSOR CROSS
"Owing to the number of peoples
who have dominated the affairs of
Sicily in past centuries, Sicily 'con-
tains great numbers of works of art
which reflect the civilization of many
ages and of many people," said Prof.
H. R. Cross in a lecture on "Sicily,
Past and Present," given Monday aft-
ernoon in the Natural Science audi-
torium.
"For 25 centuries the Sicilians have
been under the influence of others," he
continued. "In the fifth century be-
fore Christ the Greeks dominated the
life of the island and stamped their
civilization upon the cities, building
temples, theaters, and homes which
remain to the present day. These dif-
ferent structures represent some of
the most beautiful and distinct types
of art known to man.
Advent of Carthaginians
"Soon after them came the Car
thaginians, and then the Romans, both
of whom did not leave so much of an
influence upon the island as did the
Greeks. The Romans ruled the Sici-
lians until the dissolution of their
great empire, and did leave some mn-
uments which still remain. Following
this period of influence, the Byzantian
rulers governed Sicily until the Sara-
; ens, then having a higher type of civ-
ilization than any European nation,
came across from Africa.
Saracen Rule BneficiI
"Under their rule the island enjoyed
greater prosperity than ever before,
the Sa acens being liberal, highly cul-
tured, and leaving works of their ar-
tists on the island. In the eleventh
century the Normans, although never
comprising more than two per cent of
the population, conquered the island
and ruled it until the thirteenth cen-
tury, when they were succeeded by
the Spanish. The Spaniards left their
imprint on the island, but they were
'superceded finally by the English, for
a short period, and then by the Ital-
ians themselves in the form of the
Kingdom of the Two Sicilies.
Conquered by Garibaldi
"Garibaldi and his immortal thou-
sand then conquered the island and
united it with the new -Kingdom of
Italy, after a plebiscite had been tak-
en. As I have said before, Sicily
abounds with art of different ages and
different people as a result of its
subjection under so many different
nations."
Professor Cross' lecture then assum-
ed the form of a personally con-
ducted tour about the island. Slides of
cities and beautiful places in Sicily
were shown and Professor Cross re-
lated the story of each particular
place. Pictures were shown of scenes,
famous through mythology, among
which were the rocks of the Cyclops,
places frequented by the nymphs, and
the scene of the tale of Arethusa.
