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.

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, iron,lime,magnesium,sodium,and potassium. Qcontinued on next column.D GEOGRAPHY it W 'iii it . Silicon is the basis of all quartz rock.AluminaQalumina oxidel is the bas, of clqy,limestone,lime,and mngnesia, fmagnesiumoxidel and all the ferro-mag- nesium minerals. As used in geology the term rock means solid poriton of the enrth.Sand and gravel are rock to the geologist. The term stone is applied to detached portions of rock,though very large mass- es are usually called rock. Rounded ftp 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- ported by ice or water. According to their formation,rocks are clossidied :sg igneous,sedimentary,end metamorphic, and according to their composition ns gr nite,merble,quartz,nnd slate. r ,.

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 xhich 1.' we see in the uorld today. Wilma Deltz. BA.

THE STORY OF BASKET BALL The game of basket ball was invented in the year 1892 by Dr.James Maismith at the Y. M.C.A. school in Springfie1d,M ss. It was first played as a boy's game and soon adapt- ed in a modified form for gir1's schcols. It end of the playing court. is a game that is best played indooru, nd should have at least 4000 for playing. The goals are elevated inches in diameter,and ple sq.ft. of space basket eighteen ced on the center line ten feet above the floor, one at each The team consists of a certified list of players of which there may not be more than five on the floor at one time during the game. 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.

There are four bases--home,first,second,and third. The pitcher stands between first and thir bases and sixty and one half feet from the home plate. A base ball team consists of nine play ers and a game regularly continues nine innings. An inning is over when one team puts three outs on the opposing team. Base Ball is the national game of the United States, and was played in somthing like its present form at Cooperstown,New -York in 1859. The ball used was of live- ly rubber covered with yarn and measured ten and one half inches A national association was formed in 1858 and hhe first club was the Red Stockings of Cincinnatti. In their fam- ous tour of 1869 they won all their games The national league was formed in 1876 and the American Association in 1882 and the American League in 1900. John Schie,8A.

THE TRIP TO The trip to the ing one. We learned not learned before. different kinds of machines there at the iirport. The guide explained things vary well. One of the interesting things :as a light used in the directing of planes. It is made up of three lights:yelloe,red,und green. The yellow light is for caution.The red is for danger,wait for further instr- uctions. The green is for clear,go ahead. There was a navy plane on the field while we were there. Some of us saw it take off. After we looke at everything in the building we went ot the hangar. It was just a one room building. There were lots of planes in it. I don't see how they got them all in. A few minutes later the T.W.A. came in. I didn't get to see it as it came in,so I can't tell you hot it looked. When it landed it rolled up in front of the main building. Then a man went out to it with a platform and the people got off. A mechanic came and oiled and checked the motors. The nm ,QIRPOHT airport was an interest- many things that We learned about the we had BACTERIA There are many different kinds of bacteria and they are found almost eva where. There is no difficulty in finds ing material to study. Bacteria are in the air,soil,and water. They may live i either deed or living material. A poorly ventilated school room may contain many bacteria. We ent,drink,fnd breathe bec- teria in countless millions yet most of them do us no harm. The best temperature for bateria growth is between 70 and 100 degrees fnhrenheigbt. Very few bactfria grow well above 115 degrees though in hot springs certain bacteria have been found growing in temperatures as high as 175 degrees. Within certain limits a rising temperature speeds the growth where a dropping temperature reterds it. Ordinarily all bacterial life is killed by boiling water. The life activities of bacteria are checked as the freezing point of water is approached and cease entirely when the water freezes. They may live in ice for months and become active again when the ice melts. Bac- teria are useful in the preparing of cer tain foods. Certain bacteria change piloticame out and talked with other officers.alcohol to vinegar. The sugars in fruit After nbout five minutes the pilots went back to their places and they were ready to go. The motors started one after the other. The plane turned north and started toward the runways and took off for Dayton.

Recent Scif: entific experiments indicate,however,that the interior of the earth is rigid like steel making it necessary to find another explanation for volcanoes. Today there are only about three hundred active volcanoes. In past ages nuch more activity took place. Volcanic eruptions sent out clouds of ash- es,cinders,gases,and lava completely cover- ing and burying cities as Pompeii,near Naples in the year 79 A.D. The city of Pom- peii wns rediscovered in 1748 and since then its covering of ash has been removed by careful digging and excavating.

Richard Filloff,7A. ee4ese+++e+4e4aeaseeeeeeessset POLLEN. The transfer of pollen from the sta- mens is called pollenntion. In many flore were it is necessary that pollen come from a different flower. Msn insects ore attracted to flowers by their color and odor. Some flowers produce nectar, a meet fluid which insects use for food. zilmes crawl around on flowers and down into them. They become covered with the pollen which they carry to other flowers as they move about. Some birds are agent. of pollenation. fhe humming bird is one A example. Wind is also a carrier of pollez Pollen grains are light and are picked and carried in the wind. S ome of them fall on the stigmns of other flowers. James Marshall,7A. FLIES Flies are deadly insects to have nrou d. The house fly carries disease germs in several ways. Its feet are sticky and its legs have many hairs on them which are adapted for carrying bac- teria. These become soiled with the filth in which they live. When the fly touches an other object some of the filth is left where it may live. . Ermal Sands.7A.
