FOOTBALL IS A BUSINESS
Or Should Be for a Coach, Is Opinion
of Big Bill
Philadelphia, Jan. 13. —That a foot
bail coach to produce the best possible
•results should make coaching a regular
.business is the opinion of William (Big
Bill) Edwards, the famous Princeton
guard. Edwards, ift stating his vie<ws 011
the future coaching system at Prince
ton, said recently:
"I believe absolutely in the one man
system. Football has become a regular
bußinese. One man must stand at the
heald. There never should be considered
lat time any man but a Princeton
tootbali man for the position. Princeton
has numerous m«n who can handle this
Hob successfully, but when such a man
is chosen h e must make football his
regular business and give his entire
time to this work. Such a man must be
w-ell paid and this man, I believe,
should have entire selection of the
coaches under him."

COV. TENER HAS RECEIVED
A SUMS TO CHICAGO
Leader of National League Plans to
Witness Progress of Case Against
Organized Baseball—Delay Opening
New York Office
New York, Jan. 13. —The plans that
Governor John K. Tener, president of >
the National League, had made to es
tablish his hea'cDquarters in the New
York offices of the league on January'
26 or 2 7 probably will be changed on!
account of the Federal league's anti
trust suit filed in Chicago against or- 1
ganized baseball. Mr. Tener 'a term as |
Governor of Pennsylvania expires on |
January 25 and he had arranged to
come here a day or two later to begin !
his first day in and day out work as!
chief executive of the league.
Among other officials of the two big'
leagues. Governor Tener has received aj
summons froan the Federal Court in
Chicago to be present at the opening
hearing there a week from to-day. A j
local lawyer vouchsafed the opinion yes
terday that the Governor of a State'
cannot be forced to answer a summons;
in a case of this kind, but an official!
of the league declared that Mr. Tener j
of his own will and accord wilil go to i
Chicago to witness the progress of the!
case, as well as to offer testimony when I
Tt is likely now that the Governor
will not make his headquarters here un-j
til the first of February, or perhaps Ri
week or so later. There is no intention
on his part to move the offices from the j
Metropolitan Tower, where they have
been for several years, but th e 'present
quarters will have to be enlarged. The!
adjoining suites on the tenth floor of j
the tower are occupied just now by
various business concerns, so that it j
probably will become necessary to move I
a floor or two up or down. At present,!
in addition to cabinets and cases of!
different kinds containing the various j
records of the league, there are desks!
for John A. Hevdler, secretary of the
league; D. Lie Roy Reeves, personal •
secretary of Governor Tener, and a ste-'
nographer. There are jus* two rooms
and a reception hall. It is intended to
have quarters at least twice as large
when the Governor moves in.
After reconsidering the problem,
Governor Tener has decided not to
make his residence in Xew York Ha'
will continue to live in Philadelphia, I
but will come over daily to attend to
the eague business, the entire trip from
his house to the office consuming about!
two hours and a half.

Why War Is Bad For Farmers Every-
In the current issue of "Farm and
Fireside, - ' the national farm pa.per pub
lished at Springfield, Ohio, I)r. Daivid
Starr Jordan, president of Leland Stan
ford University, writes an interesting
article entitled "The Farmer and
War" in which he shows how fanners
everywhere, including farmers of
America, lose as a result of this war.
He says that we are all in the saime
boat and that whatever harmsprosperity
in one part of the world injuries us all.
For other articles he may have no mar
ket at all. Whoever buys of hipi must
have money to buy with. Food is cheap
in England to-day because so many go
without their usual food, buying only
the cheapeA articles. In lx>n«lon a
month ago the finest fruit was sold
for next to nothing. In wur there is no
demand for luxuries, no care for com
fort no continuity of industry, no de
mand to buy, and among millions of
people nothing to buy with. The inter
est of one nation is the interest of all
so far as farmers and workmen are
concerned. He goes on in part as fol
"The farmer has no greater enemy
than war. The war of to-diay has its
primal motive to keep the farmer down.
It is, at bottom, the fight of pride aud
privilege against the common man. It
is the last stand of imperialism against
democracy. It is the last supreme ef
fort of those who believe that some
men and some nations are (food enough
•to rule other men and nations against
their will. This is not the whole story
otf the war, hut it is what the war has
come to mean. No nation can make
money out of any war, and no nation
that begins a war can tell how it will
end. But in every war there are some"
few men, contractors, gun makers, iron
pla'te makers, who make a good deal of
money. And so long as the Krupps, the
Vtakers and the Schneiders of Europe,
the ' armor-plate .patriots ' of Germany,
England and France, have their way,
there will always be war, and the farm
ers otf the world will pay for it."
MiUy declared one day, apropos of
the subject of her history lesson, that
her dear father was "just as great anil
good a man as George Washington.
"To be sure," she added, "he is not
quite as well known, and so he is not
so popular."—Christian Register.

One of Two Methods, Combustion or
Detonation, Is Used
An explosive is a body which, under
the influence of heat or shock, or both,
is, Bpeaking popularly, instantaneously
resolved entirely or almost so into
Practical explosives consist either of
bodies such as nitroglycerin and nitro
cellulose, which are explosive in them
selves, or mixtures of ingredients which
separately are or may be non-explosive,
but when intimately mixed are capable
of being exploded.
Explosives are exploded either by
simple ignition, as in the case of black
gunpowder, or bv means of a detonator
containing mercury fulminate.
The molecules of an explosive may
be regarded as in a state of unstable
chemical equilibrium. A stable state
of equilibrium is brought about by the
sudden decomposition of the original
compounds with the evolution of heat.
An explosion is thus an extremely rap
id decomposition, accompanied by the
production of a large volume of gas
and the development of much heat.
There are two well-defined modes of
explosion, which can be described as
combusion and detonation. In the for
mer case the explosive is simply ignited,
and combustion takes place by trans
ference of heat from layer to layer of
the explosive. The rapidity with
which the combustion proceeds depends
not only* on the pnysical form of the
explosive, but also on the pressure un
der which the decomposition takes
place. When in the form or nno grains
combustion proceeds much more quickly
than when the graius are large.
Detonation, on the other hand, has
to be started by a sufficiently strong
impulse, such as the explosion of a
charge of mercury fulminate; it pro
ceeds much more rapidlv and is due to
the formation of an explosion wave that
has a velocity of thousands of meters
"High" explosives indicate those,
such as dynamites and nitrate of am
monia explosives, which detonate and
have a greater shattering power than
the "low" explosives.—New York
FAMOUS OLD TROTTERS

This Monster Star Is About Forty
Times Bigger Than Our Sun
The more that Is learned about the
giant suns of space the more wonder
ful they appear. The biggest (to our
eyes) of these great supersuns is the
dog star, Sirius. It equals probably
thirty or forty suns like the one that
makes our daylight.
The speed of light gives a ready
means of comparing the distances of
the sun and Sirius, and upon the dif
ference between those distances depends
the fact that, although Sirius is in real
ity so much greater than' the sun, it
looks relatively insignificant.
Light takes about eight and a HnW
minutes to come to us from the sun.
But it takes about eight and a hall'
years to come from Sirius!
As a minute is to a year, t>o is the
distance of the sun to that or Sirius.
In other words, the great dog star i-t
about 526,000 times as far away as is
But the brightness of any shining ob
ject diminishes in proportion to the
square of the increase of its distance.
Accordingly if Sirius were actually just
as bright as the sun it ought to appear
526.000x526,000, or 276,676,000,000
times fainter than the sun to our eyes.
But measurement of its light shows that
it appears only about 7,000,000,000
times fainter than the sun, from which
immediately follows the conclusion that,
its actual brightness must exceed the
sun's about forty times. —Garrett P.
Serviss in Spokane Spokesman-Heview.
Holland's safety in time of war lies

Dancing As an Art
"As a pastime dancing is ca|>able of
becoming the most potent influence in
t'avdr of national health and beauty
fhat America ever had," declared Troy
Kiniiey in tiie '"Century,'' "As an art
ft is a vdhielc not one shade less elo
quent than painting, music, drama or
literature. Ballet pantomime, in fact,
combines the resources of these, add
ing, for any one attuned to line har
mony, a supremely poetic message of its
own. It becomes an obligation to con
sider means by which the mesent mag
nificent beginnings of a national chorcg
raphy may be conserved."
