A Test For Football football seems lo IJe sporadic bits of trouble ax 11 ' 11 this full. Au eastern football star, confessing that he is sick of the game, is ordered tq hand in his uniform. Six players at another eastern university ank for higher Wages and arc dropped. A western university is dropped by an athletic conference because it lias subsidized and recruited prominent stars, It would not do, of coursei, to pounce on these incidents and declare, because of theim, that college football is all wrong. • It is a find game, and it provides enjoyment for many thousands of people. But UK re is one fair test you can apply, in any. given situation. If football at any college exists primarily to provide the players with wholesome and enjoyable athletic recreation, then it is on n sound basis, no matter how much money conies in at the gate. If it exists for any other primary reason it is on an unsound basis and needs doctoring very badly.' Luck an d Success Julius Rosenwald is a fascinating personality an,d a man of sound good sense as well. When he says that his success has been SO or 35 per cent tlie result of luck and only 5 or 10 pet- cent the,result of.intelligence and hard work he is sincere and probably correct. The thing Mr. Rosenwald forgot to say, Iunvever7is tiiat it is usually necessary to have* the 5 or 10 per cent of hard work and common sense before the luck cart do any good. . Hard work and intelligence will take .care of almost any man, no matter what his luck, although it most assuredly holds no f.ure key to-wcalth. Luck alono will not do much for anyone. When Julius Rosenwald, who is said to bq worth ?300,000,000, says that his success is 90 or 95 per cent the result of luck, he means' that without luck his hard work and intelligence would only have produced for him some. $1,500,000 ot] §3,000,000. Any man who will work hard enough and intelligently enough to earn $1,500,000 carj afford to rely upon, luck for any additional worldly wealth. It may have been luck that made NEWS Julius Rosonwald a inulti-millionali'o, but Hoscnwald gave fortune a good foundation to work on. Preparing For Christmas Christmas is .still quite a distance ahead of us, but it is not exactly too early to begin (o take care of that Christmas shopping job. It's n fine fcclinif to come up to the lust week be- forft the holiday knowing that you hnve bought and mailed all Die gifts you are going to buy. The last-week rush doesn't affect you at all. By the same token, it is not at all too early to begin lo plan on Christmas rolk.f. For a groat many families this winter Christmas will be only a mockery, unless those of us who arc more fortunate do our part with a will. In every city there are many families that will uefd help. Now i§ a good time to begin mnkinjj plans fnr them. The Windmill Cuba II. I was talking lo a fellow about that this mornin;; ami said to me.

' HIRED VAE.V.P AROOMO be followed by warm winters and he winters of the last 10 years or so have shown a. tendnecy toward Idncss. "But it is utterly impossible to predict whether a season will be varmer or colder than the average, 1 says Dr. William J. Humphreys, the Weather Bureau's erudite and world-famous meteorologist. "No .wo seasons are alike and they of:en differ widely. "Studies have been made In all larts of the world with the idea of .earning how to forecast the next season's i'eather, but hardly any have been published because they nearly all showed negative results. We must hit- it right three-fourths of the tune hi any long range forecasting system that justifies itself and there isn't any si|ch system." "Signs" Are Hokum Don't go paying any attention to the amount of fur on animals or the thickness of corn husks or tho amount of honey the bees have stored up. The fur depends on the animal's physical condition, husks don't amount to much in a drought year like this an dbecs are likely to sling you If you go nosing round in their hives. Aud don't ou be saying such complete non- •euse as: : "Onion skin very thin Mild winter coming in. Onion skin thick and tough Coming winter cold and rough." The average winter temperature Dr. Oliver Lanard Fassig, the cli- imlolpgist, who has bsen associated with the Weather Bureau for years, once studied weather rec-, ords of Maryland for more than 100 .•ears back, hoping to establish some kind of a periodicity. He failed to do that, but in case you have, a weakness for the law of averages, uerc's what he found, considering any season "cold" when it averaged t\vo degrees below average and 'warm" when it averaged two degrees above: In 81 years there were 23 cold winters, 22 warm winters and 42 average winters. Also 25 cold summers, 22 warm summers and 40 average summers. The 22 warm a warm summer—were followed by siunmers—rcember that, 1930 had four cold autumns, six average autumns anil 12 warm autumns. They were followed by five cold winters, 10 average winters and seven warm winters. Eleven cold summers were followed by cold autumns. 12 by average autumns and only one by a warm autumn. Ten were followed by coHl winters, 12 by average winters and two by 'warm winters. Doth Dr. Humphreys and Dr. Fassig emphasise the |>oint that you can't, use Ihc law of averages in forecasting. And the entire Weather lUircau personnel agrees (hat the winter of 1930-31 may be cltmef mild or vicious.
