The team work of the Colonial hoys showed much improvement over their first appearance. They passed well, despite the fact that tlmy have had no oppor- t u n i t y to practice together, but as the baskets at Cloyne Houce are' rather difficult the score was not high. In the first half the Colonials out- ·-:ored ihfelr opponents, Graf ton and Whooler contributing four goals each, while Armstrong found tho "net" for three. The second was much faster, the Cloyno boys trying hard to overcome the big lead, but the Colonials were alao going at a faat clip and o.ithough the Cloyno House athletes covered well and played a strong defense game the Ncu-portera drove through the lines and again out-poialed them. 34-11.

Tho word "automobile" itself aroused inuc.Ii hostility In the early days of self-moving cars, because it was an improper compound, becauee It was obviously an adjective rather than a noun and because it was not English; but it hau survived all opposition and Is in the English dictionaries. So will "aeroplane" survive, though it may never be properly pronounced as a word of four syllabled, the diaresis having be«n omitted, first by the printers, who always.aim at simplification, and later by common concent. But the Aero Club Is giving it» attention to needful revision of the uorrxn- clature of aeronautics, and Mr. Henry Woodhouse direct* attention to the report of th« .natluiml advisory committee on aeronautli-H, w.hleh containn 111 terms used In connection with air navigation..Mr. "WqodhousG himself lias accumulated a collection of 2,500 terms 10 ; relating to this subject. What Is aimed at Is simplification. is desirable that the accepted terms relating to wi;tt we call aviation should be Euch as express their meaning to the common mind. It is well at the 34 beginning not to leave the vocabulary entirely to usage. Mr. Woodhouae obviously prefers aeroplane to the often suggested alrplan«. We have aero- J f drome, aerostatics, hydro-aeroplane 6 i Air squadron might be as serviceable as 15 'aero iquadron, .but it is likely that in 0 ' most ot the already long-established I terms we shall f tick to the "aer" even 2* |if we pronounce, it as a single syllable. Air service, however, will always .be acceptable, but Mr. Woodhouse objec.tr to the employment i" the army of the terra "aviation section" to cover both the lighter and the heavier than air machines.
