EVENING LEDGER PHILADELPHIA, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1915.
rJama aw exceedingly popular In the
United States Navy. The sailors Just
dote on them, yet Uncle Sam Intends to
offer for sale to the highest bidder some
thing like "0,000 pairs because the naval
officials nhd the sailors dlsusTee as to
hat use should be made or the gar.
The officials think pajnmas should be
used to sleep In. Some one In nuthurlty
who probably hail been given an ex
ceedingly coinfoi table pair ot aUk ones
(or a birthday present nnd ,found them
to his liking sol the ld-a of supplying
the garments less cxprnslve, of course
to the sailors.
For weeks tho orlKlrml order of 100,000

In. Then a snllor heard about them and
Investigated. Within n short time 30.0o0
3f the garments had been withdrawn.
Jut after a tlmo the officials learned that
ror some reason the pajamas didn't last
lonj. Sailors repeatedly turned back the
old garments wom to ahreds
Are the sailors such heavy slccpersT"
atlccd the officials, "or are the garments
of (llmsy material?
An Invcetlgotion was made. Jack Tar

ar.l smile was found shoveling coal.
Jack Tnr In colder latitude was found
using tho pajamas ns underwear.

FRANKLIN UNIVERSITY" FAVORED

Sentiment of Alumni Throughout the West Apparently
Inclines to Change the Title of Venerable Institution.
James M. Beck's Tribute to Founder's Memory
The University of Pennsylvania should
be renamed Kranklln University, In honor
of Its Illustrious founder. In the opinion
of nearly all the piomlncnt alumni of
the West and Middle West, according to
Horace M. LltiDiucott. secretnry of the
General Alumni Society, who hns Just
returned from a trip to the IMclltc
coast, ns the representative of Provost

that the use of his name would give It a
prestige which It cannot Have from Its
present name. This Is particularly true
since the popular Impression outside of
the Kast Is that Pennsylvania Is a State
Institution. The principal objection to
the plan Is that It would entail tho chang
ing of the charter, the rewriting of all the
songs, the change of athletic Insignia, etc.
Tho advocate! of tho change, however,
point to the fact that until a few years

that It would become the greatest univer
sity In America.

and orutors, Is one of the strongest ad

himself to tho project In the following

"I have sometimes thought that the
University would have been far more ad

known as Franklin College or the Uni

If Yale were the University of Connec

In Ha foundation to some extent militate
against Its growth? And so, without sug
gesting any change of name so dear to
every graduato of Pennsylvania, yet
would It not be well for tho graduates
of the University to keep constantly be
