A long, cold winter is prophesied
by Prof. H. R. Hill of the University

season is the basis of his prophesy.
Prof. Hill explains that the gos-
hawk is a bird of the extreme north-
ern regions and its migration is gov-
erned by the food supply there. Its
appearance in this part of the coun-

MARINES DISPLAY ABILITY
IN BOMBARDING "CITIES"
Quantico, Va., Nov. 7.-U. S. marines
bombarded an enemy city yesterday
and the only buildings left standing af-
ter the terrific fire were churches and
It was only a miniature city, to be
sure, and the buildings were not more
than a foot high. Cities in miniature
are used as objectives by marine corps
artillerymen in training here, and the
little buildings in them are plainly
labeled "gun factory4" "barracks,"
"church," "hospital," etc. The marine
gunners are careful in training to
avoid hitting buildings marked
"church" or "hospital," and in prac-
tice they show wonderful marksman-
ship in razing buildings adjacent.
