Later Herschel applied this law to the sums which constitute double tars, and today Adams observes from Mount Wilson stars : falling with greatr velocity toward! the centre ,of. the galactic system under the combined pull of the millions of objects, that compose it. Thus full' advantage has been taken of the possibility of utilizing the great, masses of the heavenly bodies for the discovery and application of a law of physics and Its reciprocal use in explaining celestial motions. j . Or consider the Einstein theory of relativity the truth or falsity of which is no less fundamental to physics. Its inception sprang from the Michelson-Morley experiment, made in a basement laboratory In Cleveland which showed that motion of. the earth thru the ether of space could not . there be j detected. This experiment is now being repeated by Miller on the summit of Mount Wilson to determine whether the absence of relative motion of earth and ether, as observed at, low levels, is equally true at high altitudes. All of the three chief test3 of j Einstein's general theory are astronomical because of the great masses required to produce the minute effects observed the motion of the perihelion of Mercury, the deflection of the light of a star by the attraction of the sun, and the shift of tbe lines of the solar spectrum toward the red questions not yet completely answered. From "Cosmic Crucibles,' by George Ellery Hale in Scribner-s. j A New Kind of College: j Mr. -Arthur E. Morgan,' chief engineer of the great flood prevention works in the Miami valley, has been elected president of Antioch college, Yellow Springs, O. It is generally assumed that If a boy picks up a certain amount of, "culture" in college, practical experience can be left to take care of Itself. Similarly, if he goes to a technical school, it is assumed that enough "culture" and administrative ability can be acquired later. The aim of the new administrators of Antioch (it began its life in 1853, with Horace Mann as its president) is to remedy what they believe is a defect, to. teach boys and girls as soon as possible to "find" themselves, and while picking np various sorts of necessary special knowledge, to acquire also the arts of practical good citizenship. On of the main features of their plan is to alternate five weeks of class room work with five weeks of work in nearby industries which will have arranged for the employment of students on such part- time basis. But the whole curriculum will bo modified to fit the Antioch theory. Thus the college printing plant will do commercial work and a group of students in the school of Journalism might, perhaps, bid on and do printing for persons outside the college; or students in an engineering or accounting course might buy an old automobile, repair it and finally sell It, and thus complete the cycle" as it Would be . worked out in actual life. , - I The general point of view behind the Antioch Idea had already expressed itself in the Moraine park preparatory school, In which Col E. A. Deeds, Mr. O. F. Kettering and other Dayton citizens -were interested.! These gentlemen felt that "some knowledge of commercial habits and of making correct judgments "of material values reduce the embarrassments and inefficiencies of every day life" and that "high school subjects, as well as manual training, to some extent, may- be acquired coincldentally with a knowledge of the usual contacts of every day life." One of the devices by which this aim is realized in the Moraine park school is thru what are called J' projects,? which are bits of real life in miniature run by the .pupils- themselves. Thus there is a bank ''project," with deposits amounting to about a thousand dollars, which loans money at Interest and to finance other school "projects." There is a lunchroom, laundry, typewriting agency, employment agency (for boys - who want to work during the summer, among the one hundred odd f projects." . . ' I; The pupils are not marked according to their per-cent of accomplishment in the usual subjects, -but In accordance with their all-around development In fen Bo-called "occupations:" (J) body building; (2) spirit hulking; (3) society serving; (4) man conserving; (5) opinion forming,-. (6) truth discovering; (?) thought expressing; (8) wealth producing; (9) comrade or mate seeking; (10) , life refreshing. There are no written admission examinations of the usual sort at Antioch, but each, prospective student fills out an elaborate questionnaire and his case is judged accordingly.

" (Creator of tha Helen and Warren Character. An Amazing Message from th Spirit World Leaves Warren Undisturbed. - "Now; dear, dont make cynical comments try to be responsive," urged Helen as they entered the office building in which Mrs. Irene Moore held her Tuesday night spiritualistic meeting : :Let'3 go in a sympathetic mood." "Well, you can supply the sympathy. Don't expect me to get lit up over this sort of thing." irritated at having been dragged there against his will. "Mrs. Stevens says she's wonderful she told her some , marvelous things" ''-.'. "Huh, she'd fall for anything," grunted Warren. "She'B always chasing some new fad. Last year it was palmistrynow it's spiritualism. The elevator not running, they climbed two flights of dimly Ut stairs, and turned down the ball to n open door thru which shone a strip of light . It was a long, narrow1 room filled with rows of chairs. On the platform sat the medium a stout, florid woman with heavy gray hair. On a table beside her were a bowl of flowers. pitcher of water, a glass, and two aH-ver plates. " Warren, refusing to go np front, peremptorily waved Helen Into the very last row, the chairs creaking loudly as they sat down. The collection came first the passing of the silver plates. Then the medium rose to make an announcement. "For the, benefit of those who have never been here before, I will . state that my control is Little Lottie a child of , seven. When she "'questions you, please answer promptly as & child Is apt to be impatient.'' Then bowing to a young woman on the front seat, "Now. Miss Ellis.", Crossing to the piano. Miss Ellis favored them with an unintelligible song in a shrill, metallic soprano, while Mrs. Moore sat with closed eyes, motionless except for an occasional twitching of her muscles. "There are the Stevens np front the third row," whispered Helen. , , As the last tortured note died away, and Miss Ellis, returned to her seat, the medium gave a violent twitch and started up. still with closed eyes. , v "Dood evening" ewybody," In a child's piping trble. "My! I sees a loi of spirits tonight and they all wants to dive me messages for won. Ill do best I can. I knows you all wants to talk to ur dear ones." The medium had also assumed a child's mannerism. She was fidgeting and twisting her handkerchief. , ' "That 'ittle girl over by the wall," pointing to an elderly woman In the third, row. "I's a message for you. Do you know Mary In the spirit world T" The woman, leaning tensely forward, nodded a breathless Yes." "She was young, wasn't she? Not Well, she looks young And I gets a awful pain here," clasping , her large, Jeweled hand to her throat. "Didn't she pass out with sumpin' the matter with her throat?" "Not ihat I know of," was the tremulous atfiwer. - - "Oh, ytes, she did!" shrilly. -Oo-oa! It' hurts line all down here." Then as there was no affirmative response. Lit tie Lottie shrewdly shifted her ground. "You've some money trouble you want to know what to do?" j "Yes yes!" The woman's voice betrayed a pathetic eagernes's. "She says not to worry, i sees a figure 3 I dunno if it's 3 weeks or 3 months but it's comin out all right She'll tell you more next time." Waving both hands to dismiss tha spirit and summon another, "Lottie" turned to the other side of the room. "That 'ittle girl on the aisle," resuming the childish idiom from which she had lapsed somewhat. "A old gent'man is standin' right back ow you." "Me, Lottie?" chorused three women all on the aisle. "With the blue hat yes, yon! Oo-oo. I hurts all down my leg. He had rheumatism. My leg hurts sumpin' awful Didn't he walk with a cane?" The woman hesitated, evidently not ablo to place the spirit "He stoops and has grap hair. And he wants to tell you you mustn't worry. There's goin' to be a change In your affairs. You goin' to take a lon trip somewhere. Calirornia, i tain yes, I sees the palm trees and hooful flowers. Oh, I know now! , You write for the movies?" . ' "I I haven't yet but I'd like to." "Well, you will," brightly. "That's why you goin to California J see lots of papers. You writes and tears up and then you writes sumpin you don't tear up and it's goin' to bring you lots of money." "Oh, thank you, Lottie, thank you.' "Now les see. My! They"s so many spirits here I dunno which way to turn. Oh, yes, that 'ittle boy way back they's some one here for him." "Dear she means you! whispered Helen, nudging Warren excitedly. "It's a tall old lady with gray hair. She's got on a black silk dress with white at the neck. She holds a big "S" before her. Maybe your mother or a aunt she don't say but her name 'begins with 'S.' You know who I mean?" "Yes," lied .Warren to Helen's amazement .-' "She want3 to talk to you about your business. Don't you send out a lot of letters? And don't a lot of people write you and come to see your" Then encouraged by Warren's affirmative nod. 1 "You're a promoter, arent you?" Helen could hardly repress an audible gasp, as he repeated his obliging "Yes." "You send out a lot of circulars thru the mail. 1 see them folded three times ' in long envelopes. Well, .this spirit says to be very careful what you say in those circulars so you won't get in-trouble with the mall authorities. You understand what I mean?" "I do." "Well, that's all right then ehe Just says to be careful. That's all she can say .now she'll tell you more next time." Helen flushed indignantly. Warren a promoter! . And in trouble with the postal authorities! Why had he led her on to such preposterous statements? Then with a start she realized the woman was talking to her. . "Yes, you? The 'ittle girl next to the 'ittle boy I Just talked to. There's a of hazy. There's sumpin you wantTtrl do but you're afraid. WelL don't be afraid. Ton understand T' "I I don't think J. do," faltered rlelen. 1 "Well, you ought to," crossly. "Yon think about it when yon get home. Didn't -some one Just try an' persuade ycu from sumpin you wanted to do?" "Net that I know of," painfully conscious of many backward glances. "Yes, they did!" with an Impatience she always showed when contradicted. "Now I'm goin to talk to somebod. else. That 'ittle lady right here in front. You came, to find out "bout a young man. Yes, you did you needn't blush. Well, he's very nice but he's not the marryln kind. Isn't that so?" "I don't - know," , stammered . the rather pretty blond, ' much embarrassed. , "Well. It's, better to ' have a' true fr.end than a fickle husband.. . And you're not satisfied with other conditions surrounding you? Isn't that so?" The girl admitted that it. was. . "They're going to improve. But be careful about signing any papers l see the word 'Insurance. ". Then irrev-elantly, "Don't your bed' face east?" "Why no," after a moments consideration. "It faces west" - . . "West? Walt a minute," her hand to her head. "Oh, yes,. I was looking at Uie foot. That faces east that's what I meant. Now, tonight you-, turn it 'round so the head faces north.. Your vibrations will be hetter." Other readings, all padded with glittering generalities,, followed. Always she touched on poor health and unsatisfactory financial conditions that were soon to improve." Some Mary, John or William from the spirit world was there to help almost every one. If the messages were a little vague, more definite ones were promised for next, week. And for the turn otfive dollars a private seance could be hed in which more detailed and intimate advice would be given. Even Helen squirmed a little over some of the most obvious evasions, and she had to keep Bodging Warren to subdue his disgusted grunts, "Wish I could play piano." Coyly sidling over to tha instrument "Lottie" fingered the keys. . "I likes a piano. Don't that sound pltty?" pounding one note. "Well, I most go now. Be sure. to come next Tuesday I'll have more messages. Good-night, ewybody, good-niht," waving her handkerchief. "Good-night Lottie," chorused several women, evidently habitues.- "Let's get out of here," - Warren snatched up his hat and stick. As they were In the last row, he was out in tbe hall before Helen could protest, - .. "Oh, it seems rude to go off without speaking to Mrs. Stevens," reluctantly following him down. "I'm afraid she'll be offended." ' "She'd be a lot more offended If I. told her what I thought of that-performance. That Lottie stuff was too much for me!" -t -;i "Warren, why did you lead her on Why did you keep saying .yes?'." "Wanted to see how far she'd go. She sized me up for a promoter so I thought I'd help her along a bit" "But it wasn't, fair to mislead her,", as they came out on the street "Fair! Why, the whole thing's hunk from start to finish.-She Isn't even a good actress. Half the time she forgot her. baby, talk One minute she'd be babbling about the pitty lady' tbe next she'd come out with some jaw breakers. And her slang was ur,-to-the-m in ate." "Yes, that wasnt very convincing yet she did get some things right That old man in front of us she - told him": ' . ,- , . r "What's Bhe tell him? That he was In poor health and financial difficulties. I -could've told him that nroch without ringing in-Little Lottie." "But that woman she told about the money coming from China " "Oh. she had a line on her she'd been there before. You could tell that by the way she kept "hlrplng. Yes, Lottie' 'Thank you, Little.' "But, dear, there must be something in it Think of Sir Oliver Lodge, Con an Doyle and all the really big people interested in spiritualism."' . , "I'm not talking about scientific investigators. But that show tonight was pretty raw. What did Lottie say to that blond 'better have a true friend than a fickle husband?' How's that for an Infant prodigy? No wonder she's in the spirit world. Much too bright to live. Little Lottie must've 'passed out' with combustion of the brain!" (Copyright 1921.) Travel Goods C A. WIRICK CO.
