THE REFORM WAVE.
After nil, isn't there somothlrlg liu
ir.orouH about tills Budtlen wave of
fool ball roforra? Up until tho last
week in October no' one, save the
habitual "knocker," seemed to even bo
much as demur against tho game.
Bach Saturday saw record-breaking
crowds not only In tho East, but in
tho nilddlo and extronio West. In
Hhort, overybody Hoemod to ho satis
fied. Then tho storm ' broke. Toddy It.,
Jr., sustained serious injuries in the
Harvard Freshman-Andover Academy
same a barked noHo and a wi'onchod
ankle. Next day Hearst flooded the
land with half-tone cuts of tho wound
ed freshman being carried off-tho
'Hold in a "semi-conscious condition."
Instantly the roform craze broke
out In football camps. Faculties de
nounced tho game us, "brutally rough"
and "out of keoplng wltU university
spirit." Committees, boards of trus
tees university senates seemed to vie
"with orifc anotlior In the mnttor of riilo
rovlslon, "radical change," "absoluto
abolition." The Universl.ty of Penn
sylvania prayed for Immodlato reform
tho University of Now York frowned
sovoroly-at o game: Columbia killed
l)y this time the fever had spread
west. Norlhwestorn' becamo infected
. and appealed to its sponsor trustees.
Iowa becamo -suddenly soured on the
game and said, "Stop hurting or we
won't play." Even Chicago, the -impregnable
Chicago, Is growing dubious.
The Harvard Freshman meanwhile
Isn't there something humorous about
it, after all?" F B.

Perry Belmont of Now York, In so-

AFTER THE HAT,
Columbia, Harvard, Chicago, and
Northwestern Universities dppose
football, not alone because of tho
roughness of tho sport itself, but be
causo of the many ovll offects which
generally follow and therefore aro at
tributed to games of football where
much honor and renown Is at stake. '
Tho justness of tho position these
universities havo taken mny easily bo
provon by evidence gathered, oven at
Nebraska. Yesterday afternoon, after
tho great Senior-Junior contest, whilo
tho crowds wore following tho muddy
warriors away from tho gridiron, tno
president of ono of tho classes, sore at
the defeat hor boys had suffcrod, camo
prancing down tho walk, breathing
flro and looking daggers. Tho first
object she found on which she could
nttompt to pour forth her bitter re
venge was an innocent, unsuspecting
Junior 'wearing the '07 hut. The
haughty Senior-ess made a rush for the
'07 hat, but this Junior was "not so
easy" as she appeared to be. She
gave a faint scream which brought a
number of sisters to her aid, and after
a short but fierce tussle, the Senior
girls, more humiliated than ever, wero
obliged lo make their retreat. The
hat in dispute has lost some of its
symmetry, but 'in spite of this It is
prized more highly by its owner than
It was before.
Y. M. C. A. Notes.
The Association is just preparing to
Issue a new edition of tho Students'
Directory. As it is nocessary to havo
a Jist of the active members of all
fraternities and societies, the publish
ing committee asks that oach organi
zation report as promptly as possible
to the goneral seqrotary. A special
effort is being made to. get the book
out earlier than hns been the custom.

prayer meeting last Wednosday even

Interesting and the men are urged to
attend each Wodnesday evening from
