What is our problem?Observed figures of the Galactic globular clusters are somewhat elliptic in many cases. For not a few clusters (e.g. 23 of 72), the observed ellipticities (Shawl &amp; White 1987) are ≥ 0.1 within ~ 2rh. By a series of numerical experiments, we study whether or not tidal force from the Galactic disk can produce the observed ellipticities in such an inner region (Shimada 1996)
