the8tudent body and n largo part of
the coed part will now be nolo to turn
to their bookn and cram in tho en
deavor to keep In tho VnlverBJly. It
was certainly most unkind for tho ex

'point In determining whether a stu

his retention In the University, but
the rcgibtrar and his assistants will
doubtless make due allowance for all
delinquencies and give each student
Columbia "Kills Football."
"Columbia University has abolished
tho game of football," says a press dis
patch from New York city Hereafter
no student of that institution will be
allowed to participate in- the game as
It is now played.
This action was takon at a meeting
of tho University's committee on stu
dent organizations hold Novomocr 28,
whon tho following resolutions wore
"Resolved, On and after December
31st, 1905, the football association of
Columbia University shall be disband
ed, before which date all Its accounts
shall be settled to the satisfaction of
the comptrollerbf student organiza
tion. "Resolved,- That In the opinion of
this committee the game of football
shall bo abolished and the committee
respectfully recommends to tho uni
versity council that the gamo bo pro
hibited at Columbia University."
The action of this committee Is
final, as the students are not permitted
to play without the consent of the com
mittee. In explaining the committee's action,
Professor Lord said:
"Only by such radical steps can the
university und college life be rid of
an obsession, which it Is believed has
become as burdensome to the great
mass of students as It has proved It
self harmful to academic standing and
dangerous to human life."
While the Columbia faculty was
obollshlng the game from that Insti
tution, the faculty of New York Univer
sity was "drawing up resolutions in
viting representatives from every
school with which It has played foot
ball since the organization of its team
In 188F) .to hold a Joint conference on
ileceniber 8 for the purpose of either
altering or abolishing' tho sport. In

the bonoflt of tho doubt as to whether
or not ho would have done bettor had
It been later In the winter.
Uut no sano student will confine
himself to his books, und some now
form of amusement and recreation
muHt be provided. Gymnasium work
is good, but it is dry and does not
have the llavor of out-of-doors. Thea
ters furnish plenty of amusement, but
Uttlo beneficial exercise. Some at
tractive, bracing out-of-doors sport
must be found. Skating fills every re
quirement. An effort was mado last
yqar to have the Athletic Board turn
tho field Into a skating rink, but no
action was takon on accountof tho
sharp slope to the north, which, would
necessitate the construction of a veri
table lake. In view of tho advantages
to bo derived from this rink, If con
structed, howover, wq deem It permis
sible to suggest It once more. In tho
llrst forty yards of tho gridiron there
.'Is very Uttlo fall, and a two-foot bank
at tho north, end of this stretch would
.bo sufficient to "hold tho requisite
amount of water. Why not look Into
this, gentlemen of tho Athletic Board?

adopted the resolution that "Amerlcau
football uh now played Is not a gnniQ,
suitable as an athletic sport for In
stitutions of learning, and unless the
authorities controlling tho game make
radical changes we shall favor Its dis
continuance In Iowa colleges next fall."
The Iowa "Big Four" Grlnnell, Ames,
Drake and Iowa however, did not
vote on tho resolution.
In addition to their many blessings,
the Juniors are also thankful for the
fact that their" class hats arrived
Thanksgiving day mouning and may
be had- at Armstrong Clothing com
pany upon the payment of fifty cents

A good many of the '07 hats are al
ready in evidence about the campus.
A few of them still remain uncalled

quests all Juniors who have ordered
hats to call for them as soon ns pos

Among western universities, North
western seems to bo the first lo seri
ously consider disbanding that branch
of athletics. Sunday's "Record-Her

the Evanston school will follow in Co

gamo entirely, Tho majority of tho
members of Iho board of trustees arc
In favor of tho abolition of the game on
account of Its roughness and bqcauso
they consider It out of keeping with
university spirit. They think that as a
sport It could bo well supphrtited by
something moro djgnlfled.
