Life Shortened by Athletics?
In answer to a recent artlclo by
President James of tho University of
Illinois, in which it was claimed) that
tho lifo of tho college man -is shortened
and his v'aluo as a business man less
ened by his participation In athletics,
Dr. William G. Anderson presents
some strong argumonts in an articlo
published in tho curront number of a
"Tho hostilo criticism," saya Dr. An-
i dorson, "that athlotcs 'die young' has
boon so often mado without definite
refutation tha it passes for truth
THE NEW MUSEUM.
Now that plans aro boing discussed
for tho, oroctlon of tho now museum
provided for by the last legislature, and
In vlow of tho fact that tho now build
ing will bo tho first of a series, all of
which must follow It In stylo and ap
poaranco, It Is perhaps permissible to
enter an objection against tho present
plan. According to tho decision of
tho building committee, It seems prob
ablo that tho now building will bo
constructed of tho samo material which
lsboing put Into tho now administra
tion building. I'his Bhould call for a
.hearty protest from every ono con
nected with tho University, for of all
tho ugly buildings in Lincoln, tho ono
now being constructed on tho very
front of tho campus is -certainly tho
among those who mistako rumor far
fact. An investigation of tho health
and longevity of college athlotos must
bo exhaustive . to furnish trustworthy
"Realizing tho impprtanco of such
statistics, Prof. Franklin B. Dexter, tho
librarian of Yalo, has rocently com
pleted tho task of collecting tho records
of 761 athletes who competed In lntor-
collegiate events and won their 'Y's
on tho eleven, tho nino, tho crow, and
'.tho fraclc team between 1855 and 1904.
Ths material was gathered for a prom
inent lifo insurance company, and lator
given to tho director of tho gymnasium.
Tho main deductions aro as follows: '
"Of the3e 761 athletes, Gl havo died
since graduation. Tho causes were:
Consumption, 12; pneumonia, 4;
drowning. 6: heart disease. 2: suicido.
I 2; war and accident, 3; died from un
' known causes or disappeared, 10;
from various diseases (fever, appendi
citis, cancer, diphtheria, paresis, dissi
pation, etc.), 12.
Y. M. a A.
By special arrangements which the
Y. M. C. A. has made with Mrs. DaV,
the Uni. people will have the oppor
tunity of obtaining a 10-cent lunch on
the campus. Lunches consist of sand
wich, pie, cake and fruit. Each lunch
Is packed with special care In a carton
and may be had at Y. M. C. A. rooms
each day between 11 and ,,12:30.

Tho honorary sophomore society at

that tho state legislature Is not par
