AN OPPORTUNITY. '
The unouncomont by tho National
Municipal Loaguo of- Philadelphia of
a one hundred dollar prize for tho best
essiy on tho subject "Tho Relation of
tho Municipality to tho Water Supply"
deserves more than passing attention
from Nebraska students. ',
Tho Municipal League is organized
and conducted for the praiseworthy ob
ject of promoting, good city govern
ment nnd securing every fact and ar
gument which will assist in the solu
tion of tho many perplexing probloms
which confront Americnn cities today.
Tho worthiness of tho cnuso alone
should load Nebraska students who
aro Interested in municipal questions i
to enter tho contest. But asido from I
this, thovvinning of the prize by a '
Nebraska student would demonstrate ;
the efficiency of our department of po
litical science. In order to encourage ;
rivalry between the departments of!
Ihisscience in various. Institutions, tho j
uuiupuuuon is reBiricieu oy me league
to those universities which furnish in
struction in municipal government
We hope that Nebraskans will not
neglect this opportunity .toservq them
selves and to spread the fameof Ne

physical Director at Yale. Publishes
Statistical Proof to This Effect.
Dr. William Q. Aildorson, director" of
the gymnasium at Yale university, In
an article In iho Yale Alumni weekly
writes that tho college athlete lives
longer antf is a soun.dor man in after
life than tho average graduate who
has not gone in for athletics. Dr. An
derson bases his conclusion on an ex
haustive statistical investigation of
the mortality among members of Yale
teams uiul of the non-athletic gradu
ates of the last fifty yeurs.
f He says in part:
"Comparison of the mortality of spe
cialized athletics with the general
graduato who has not distinKuished
'himself in athletics to the extent of
winning the "Y" still shows In favor
of the athlete. Of 10,922 students In
academic and Sheffield classes from
1855 to 1905. inclusive 1,406" are dead
anu y.&ib living. The percentage of
deaths hero is 12.9. Of the 807 ath
letes from. 1855 to 1905 only 58 aro
dead, a percentage of 7.2, or only a
little over half of the general graduates
Judging from, tho investigations It is
reasonable to say that there is no un
due strain put on the athletes while
they aro in training and their later
history seems to show they wero bene
fited rather than harmed."
For Midwinter Graduates.
Tho executive office has issijod the
following notice: "All students who
expect to take degrees at tho Midwin
ter Commencement nro requestd to
notify the Registrar at once."
