A round leather ball 50 to 52 inches in
circumference is used. At the beginning of
the game it is tossed up between two play-
ers at the center of the court. When the
ball is tossed into the basket it counts
two points. When a foul is committed a play-
er on the opposing team gets a free throw
which counts one point.

eers to set forth in their cpvered uagons?

wait about thirty years for a train.

5 The word gcograph comes from two Greek
words,ngeU,and,nGrnphaN,in combination, moan
ing description of the earth. Geography dif-
fers from geology and other sceinces of the
earth in the fact that geography studies the
earth as the abode of mankind. It is closely
related in certain of its aspects, to the
sciences of economics,history,nstronomy,bot-
:un ,soology,nnd meteorology.
Geography is usually classified on the
basis of its subject matterzmathemnticnl ' 1
geogrnphy,ph sicel geogruphy,physiogrophy,
and biological geography. Mathematical geog-
lrephy concenns the size,shope,end movements
of the earth. Physical geography deals with
ithe layers of the enrth's surfnce,lnnd,seo, If
'ond air. Biological geography studies the
ylife conditions of plants and animals on the
one hand and of man on the other.

5 Rock is the solid portion of the earthd
surface. The formation of rock from molten
materials is still going on and may be seen
wherever active volcanoes throw out lava,
which solidifies on cooling. The rock enve-
lope of the arth contains nearly all the
known chemical elements, though only eight
of them enter into the composition of rocks
in such proportions as to require naming.
They are found in approximately the follow-
ing proportions: Oxygen.silicon,aluminum,

The term stone is applied to detached
portions of rock,though very large mass-

stones which have been shaped by the
action of ice or water are cslled boul-
dors or pobbles,depending upon their
size. These are frequently found long
distances from the mass of rock from
which they were twken,hnving been trans-

During the l4th and l5th centuries
England,end France,and Spain were be-
coming nations in which many loosely
connected feudal divisions were grad-
ually merging under comparatively strong
central governments. Then for the first
time,the individuel cities of Italy
and the weak organization of the Hsnse
came into conflict with commercial
rivals who had less experience but were
more poverful end determined than them
selves.Portugnl under the direction of
wise rulers had already attfined the
leadership in nnvigetion. Out of all
these conflicts came the conditions
