this may bo duo in somo part to the
lack of knowledge concerning tho club.

however, Tt,4s evident that football at
proaont calls for an intensity "of .phys
ical oxortion and exposes tho players
to a dogrod of dangor not consistent
with tho best Interests of students.
3. More serious than these pnysicai
dangers are numerous moral oyub
which nlalnly exist. It is not neces

more than more athletic rotations that

that reason the essentials should be

In order to carry theso views into
effect tho Senate adopted this resolu
tion: "In view of flagrant moral andjphys

Football Reform at Chicago.
The "reform" wave" has., struck Chi
cago, University. At tho meotlngsof
tho Unlvorslty Senato, the highest
academic body in the school, bolng
composed, of heads of departments and
faculty membors, held on December 2
and 4, tho following points wero dis
cussed and unanimously agreed on:!
1. The history of football in the mid
dle West for the last dozen years Is by
no moans a story of indifference on
the part' of university authorities to
tho t various forms, of danger, 'both
. physical' and'itior$l, which from, tlmo

easy," says Coach Stagg, "to seo how
any other game would, over take' tho
place of football. Somo other game
will result if the rules are changed to
meet tho demands of tho agitation.
Tfet America has choson its football
jUBt tho same as England has choson
association football, ana hor baseball
just as England hor cricket. In
neither country do I believe tho na
tional sports will bo abandoned or
changed. It is all natural selection."
In the wake of this rather, encourag
ing news comes the report from North
western University that It will prob
ably take no acUon against tho gamo.
Acting President Thos. P. Holgate, of
the Board of Trustees, says that tho
faculty, in whoso hands all athletic
affairs aro put, does not' feel that tho
matter requires any' legislation. Tho
