DEFENDED BY HYDE IN DECIDED
He Declares Blscujt Battles and Ma
rauding Expeditions Only Nor
mal Conduct, Sometimes.
A recent book of especial Interest to
students, is President Hyde's "The
College Man and the College Woman."
It deals, according to the author's pre
face, "with the personal, ethical, spirit
ual side of college life, and pre
sents as (he best spiritual drink for
college youth a blend of Greek sanity
And Christian service."
The book is In reality a collection of
-essays In which many various topics
are discussed, having In common only
their bearing upon the problems of
college life. One particufarly Inter
esting ehaptqr is a biographical sketch
of President Eliot. The author dis
cusses the religious beliefs of college
students, gives a typical college creed,
considers the relative earnings of col
lege graduates, takes up the work of
the college paper as as distinguished
from that of the University, argues
ngalnsfc'o'educatlon'-and' -warmly fa
vors the elective system.
The following is taken from the
chapter entitled "The Six Patrons in
"Academic freedom Is as necessary
to the students as to any other part in
the university. In early college days,
no provision was made for the free
life of the students; accordingly they
created such a sphere for themselves.
By robbing the hen-roost of neighbor
ing farmers, translating live stock to
the roofs of college buildings and es
tablishing them In recitation rooms,
by greasing black boards and barri
cading lecture rooms, by tormenting
tutors and annoying freshmen.-r-the
student made for himself an artificial
world In which they found the free
dom that the rigid curriculum and the
paternal dlslpllno of the college failed
to provide for them If the dis
order which used to mark the college
dormitory life If the rude man
ners and biscuit battles, like that at
Harvard In which the historian, Park
man, so nearly lost his eyesight, have
disappeared, It Is because a
wiser educational policy has provided
.spheres of freedom by which theso
rougher dlclpllnes in independence
have been superceded. No man can
gain in character unless ho Is doing
something Into which he can put the
whole energy of his will, the whole en
thulasm of his heart. The modern col
lege provides this freedom in study,
In athletics and In a more dignified
and enjoyable social life among the
students themselves The ques
tion of athletics Is not the question of
whether thiB or that form of exercise
is intrinsically good or bad The
question of the elective system is not
the question whelher the student will
always choose a wiser course than the
professor could make out for him....
all these are phases of the deeper
question whether the college shall
hold its students in a state of tutelage
or gain them the largest lib
erty in the conduct of their personal
affairs wjilch is consistent with their
reasonable progress in the- studies
they come to the Institutions to pursue.

The Freshman track preliminaries
will be held Saturday afternoon at 2:30
on the athletic field. All the events
with the exception of the two-mile run
will be run off, and the prospects are
that there will be close competition

Some very good material has shown
up so far, and the preliminaries are
expected to bring out more.
Miner In the 440-yard dash and half
mile Pun.Colllns In the weights and Mc
Master In the pole vault are showing
up especially well.
There will be no conflicting dates
on Saturday afternoon so that there
should be a large number out to seol
this meet. The Freshman team should
be well supported by the whole school
for they In a sense, determine the
strength of future 'varsity teams. Ad
mission will be free.

NOT PRACTICAL CITIZENS.
Students Are Not Trained for Citizen
ship, Says McCa'ndles.
.1. W. McCandles, writing in the In
lander declares that collego studentB
do not get proper preparation for good,
"Determining tho velocity of a fly
wheel, he Imys, or studying the ana
tomy of frogs for four years, or pur
suing certain- sociological investiga
tions downtown Will not suffice to fit
ono for citizenship. Tho thoughtful
consideration of public questions,
economic and social as well as politi
cal, is the lndespensible education for
doing one's public duty; and yet theso
things are left strictly to a few classes
In economics and sociology, and a few
"We are not 'cloistered' against tho
world's morals, nor its amusements,
nor against anything, apparently, but
tho problems with which we should bo
conversant and wlh which most of
us are not. The political responsi
bilities and powers of the collego man
are great. He Is to live In society and
must accept the burden of solving that
society's problems. Four yoars of tho
formative period of his life, shut off
from the consideration of those prob
lems and from the enthulasm they a
wakon,, 1b surely poor training for
tho fulfillment of civic duty."
