GIVES A REPORT
Prof. Barber Talks on Convention
of Educators at Chicago.
Professor Barber gavo a very inter
esting report on tho convention of tho
Northwestern Association of Colleges
and Accredited Schools, to which ho
was a delegate from Nebraska. He
said in part:
"This organization was Btarted nluo
years ago, being designed to meet tho
demands that could not be satisfied by
stato association or national organiza
tions. Its purpose Is to meet tho pe
culiar conditions that prevail in this
strip of country between tho Rocky
mountains on tno west and tho state
of Ohio on tho east. comnrlRlnir tin
states of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Mich
igan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Nebraska,
Missouri, Kansas, Iowa and tho Dako
tas. This convention meets once each
year, and discussion tho educational
system and needs of their territory,
which are distinctly different from oth
After these preliminary remarks,
which gavo a full outlino of the pur
pose and Intention of this annual con
vention ho commented upon the ad
dress of the first speaker, ex-President
Draper, of Illinois University, whoso
subject was "Government In American
Universities," tho comment being as
follows: "Tho key noto of tho addreBS
WttH that of freedom In all lines of
college government from tho chief ex
ecutives to tho student body. Thero
should bo no political strings wound
around tho college president; ho should
not have his seat as a result of politi
cal wire-pulling. Tho same law should
be applied to positions held by the
members of tho faculty.
"Freedom should exist among the
teachers to exerciso tholr own judg
ment in tho manner and matter, and
their teaching with but one restriction,
said President Draper, 'That they
should not In classes talk for the pub
lic and talk like a fool at that.' Ho
emphasized the fact that students
should also havo abundant freedom
that thoy might feel some added re
sponsibility and be given plenty of lib
erty and treated as ladlc-B and gentle
men." Following this review of the first
address he turned to the athletic
phase of tho convention, which was
somo what abbreviated bectfuso tho
time was lacking.
It seomedr evident, however, that
thero was a general concurrence In
favor of good clean college athletics
and all entered freely Into an earnest
discussion championing this as a nec
essary addition to the college course.
The resolutions that wero adopted by
these representative educators with
reference to college athletics wore read.
Among them were somo well formu
lated regulations which will act in rais
ing tho present standard and stifle tho
tendency towards professionalism.
Among the points touched upon in tho
resolution wero tho requisition that
students must attend an institution one
year beforo he would bo eligible .to
represent It in any collegiate meet,
and that Universities should bo dis
couraged In trying to Induce under
graduates of tho high schools to enter
because of their ability In athletics.
Among the other things that wero
discussed was tho endowments for
players. This 'was considered as ex
tremely unfair, and any Institution
should bo Isolated for It. At the close
somo of the receipts and expenditures
In athletics for tho different institu
tions were commonted-upon, and It was
demonstrated that most all or them
wero In possession of a small surplus
for tho year's business, with tho excep
tion of Nebraska", whoso account was
Tho report was a good one, but Umo
prevented a complete detailed account.
