Little Red Riding Harvard was paid a visit by a new kind of grandmother, a Princeton tiger thinly disguised beneath popular betting odds. "The better to eat you with, my dear," quoth the tiger, leaping out of the locker room and baring its chief fangs, Backs Slagle and Williams. No doughty woodsman bobbed up at the psychological moment to save the heroine and for a gruesome hour or so the sound of munching was heard on Soldiers' Field. At twilight, an autopsy was performed which revealed Harvard's condition as the most serious she has ever been in after a meeting with her New Jersey relative. Score: Princeton 34, Harvard 0.

While the Princeton cat was away, mice from Rutgers and Lafayette went over and played in Palmer Stadium. Lafayette fumbled and fumbled and fumbled, but would in no case have been a match for rugged Rutgers. Hulking Homer Hazel,* 226-pound AllAmerican back, and his fleet fellow, Henry Benkert, smashed and scampered through every obstruction Lafayette could rear, at one point forming 72 yards' worth of interference for ¡ Quarterback Terrill. Score: Rutgers 43, Lafayette 7.

Yale, who was planning to go calling in Princeton the next week, spent a restful afternoon at home, letting her second string entertain Maryland with a collection of touchdowns and faultless field goals. Score: Yale 47, Maryland 0.

Pennsylvania's guns, unspiked this season, missed fire consistently when trained on Georgetown. Fullback Al Kruez was chief gunner. Four times he set his sights for a field goal, three shots sailing wide, the other ricocheting backwards off a Georgetown mast. Finally his crew moved him up to the 21-yard line where he touched off a direct hit. Score: Pennsylvania 3, Georgetown 0.

Up in New Hampshire, Dartmouth gave Boston University a hardy New England reception. Guard Abodeely of Boston stood forward staunchly, but was shaken so thoroughly that a bone in his leg came apart. Dartmouth sub*Hazel, aged 29, is the father of three.

Childe Harold Grange* to a dark tower came, at Stagg Field, Chicago. Instead of waiting, as most people do, to stop him after he got started, Chicago anticipated the Grange assault with counter-irritants. Before Coach Zuppke could unleash his red lightning, Coach Stagg had loosed big Austin McCarty, big Harry Thomas. The Illinois line wavered, broke twice, three times. When Grange finally got under way, he scoured up and down the field frantically, covering 300 yards, of which 80 measured his zig-zag trail to the touchdown that saved a tie to Illinois. Score: Chicago 21, Illinois 21.

Michigan flung herself on Northwestern, 27 to 0; Notre Dame herself on Wisconsin, 38 to 3. Indiana, an outsider in the Big Ten race, left Ohio State at the post, 12 to 7, thus bringing to an end Ohio's sleepless nights over the title. The title rested between Illinois and Chicago, both unbeaten, but the latter tied twice to Illinois' once.

In the Missouri Valley, Drake outplayed Kansas in a duel of punts but suffered her spotless record to be smirched with a 6-to-6 tie. Missouri meantime tucked away Oklahoma, 10 to 0. Iowa squeaked out of her Butler game, 7 to 0. Ames jaunted up to Minneapolis, tied the Minnesota Gophers on their own prairie, 7 to 7.

Farther west, it was California vs. Washington, and the champion Golden Whales were all but harpooned, 7 to 7. Idaho rose up and smote Oregon, 13 to 0. Leland Stanford found Utah only mildly entertaining, won 30 to 0. Southern California took more punishment, this time from St. Mary's, 14 to 10.

The big game of the cotton belt went to Baylor, 28 points to Texas' 10. Georgia Tech handled Louisiana State nicely, 14 to 7; Georgia sought out Virginia, punished her 7 to 0 in a furious game.

ILLIONS upons millions of books fill the shelves of our libraries. Books of every conceivable kind, on every conceivable subject. So many books that their very number staggers us.

Within these illimitable rows of books are treasures richer than Ali Baba's cave ever

held. Here is knowledge, education, culture, entertainment. The jewels of civilization are within these books. What priceless benefits we could obtain from them-if only we had time to read them!

There is the problem. How can we hope to read even a small fraction of all the good books in the world? Which are the ones we should read, and where shall we begin? It is an embarrassment of riches. In our perplexity we put off the worth-while reading we have promised ourselves to do. We seldom get beyond the daily program.

The vital need

Now, what is really needed is a book that will tell us how to get the most out of the books that are already in the world-a book that will tell us what to read-and when.

The book you see pictured above is that book.

Here at last is the key to the literature of the world; the solution to the reading problem of the busy man or woman. For this book contains the famous new reading plan created by nine eminent men of letters-Dr. Lyman Abbott, John Macy, Richard Le Gal'ienne, Asa Don Dickinson, Dr. Bliss Perry, Thomas L. Masson, Dr. Henry van Dyke, George Iles, and Dr. Hamilton Wright Mabie.

A unique new plan

The plan that these great authorities devised is absolutely unique. From the immortal literature of the world these men have selected just the element essential to a cultured person's reading. And these selections they have arranged in a day-by-day program covering a full year. Your reading is scheduled for each day. And the selections are so arranged as to be of timely interest.

Thus, on July 14th, the anniversary of the fall of the Bastille, our reading takes us into the stirring days of the French Revolution. Or, on November 13th, the anniversary of the birth of Robert Louis Stevenson, you read a biographical sketch and several selections from his works.

Your reading is filled with fascinating variety, it takes you among the masterpieces of fiction, historical description, poetry, drama, essays, biography. Only twenty minutes a day are required. Yet almost before you realize it, you have acquired a broad grasp of the world's important literature. You feel at home in a discussion of the works of such immortal mas ters as Addison, Balzac, Barrie, Boccaccio, Burns, Byron, Carlyle, Conrad, De Quincey, Dickens, Emerson, Galsworthy, Washington Irving, Whitman, and others.

An almost forgotten historical work is now brought to ght. Rarely found except in private collections, this istory gives a most vivid description of decadent Rome. ts revelations, taken from the writers of the time, are stounding. Not the Caesars, but their women were the eal rulers of Rome. Never were women mightier in power or more abandoned in morals. Their ascendency over the Romans gives the only reasonable explanation of the Empire's tragic dissolution.

Never in history have women's fascinations worked greater evil, as these two volumes disclose. Conditions coday present startling parallels-the growing power of woman, the wide-spread love of luxury, the admixture of races and alien customs and political creeds.

In Rome we see the greatest depths of iniquity, the orgies and poison plottings of the wives of Caligula, of Nero, of Commodus, of Gallienus. The crimes of the Borgias seem tame in comparison with Messalina. The wickedness of the French court pales before the utter depravity that flaunted itself in Roman palaces.

The Lives and Secret Intrigues of the Roman Empresses

This fascinating and illuminating history of the virtues and vices of the Roman Empresses is a true translation from the original French of Jacques de Serviez, a nobleman and gifted historian of the early 18th Century. Written presumably as a rebuke to the extravagancies of his Bourbon court, it stands today as one of the most authoritative and penetrating descriptions of life under the Caesars.

The pages abound in graphic portrayals of feminine character and dramatic episodes. We are shown the gentle, stoic philosopher, Marcus Aurelius, in his study,


while in an adjoining apartment his Empress,
Faustina, is conducting the wildest of
pagan orgies. The loneliness of good
characters in the midst of universal
depravity grips our heart. The ex-

HE picture shows the ends of two telephone receiver magnets. The spaces indicated by the black arrows are equal in size to the unaided eye.

But the extremely fine measuring instruments which Western Electric uses, show one space to be wider than the other by the thickness of a bee's wings. Even so small a difference is too great to pass the rigid inspection which watches over the making of your telephone.

This care for detail is one reason why your telephone is so dependable. It is typical of the whole work of producing Western Electric equipment, and is a manufacturing habit which dates back to the very beginning of telephone history
