from tho sophomore class. Tho mob

is rapidly boing killed off and thoro

ovor that fact.
Throo yoarB ago tho BophomoroB
woro so forocious in tholr attack on
tho freshmen mooting that they do
Btroyod proporty. At that tlmo tho
hand of tho chancellor wuh sot down
on the raah Bocond-yenr men In a

of tho BtudontB wuh dealt a killing
blow. Tho noxt year and laHt fajl tho
sophomores were mild In their atti

Now, thiB fall tho unruly Bphit which
prompts the older classmen to at
tempt to "make llfo iniBoroble for tho
froBhleB" has about died out. Today
thoro probably will bo no demonstra

thoro is the leaders in the movement
ought to bo doalt with severely.
ClasB spirit such as Htudonts show
in attacking lower classmen is about

FORE8TRY MEN TO GO LOGGING.
Will Take Practical Course In Western
Five young huskies, composing the
class in timber mensuration of tho
forestry department of tho University
or Washington left tho roaring city
yesterday and streaked' it for the tall
uncut, where they will study nature,
first-hand. The party will spend ten
days at Montesano watching the log
glng operations at the camp of the
Chehalis Timber Company. Luckily
no camping is necessary, as the class
will live with the logging crew.
There the students will study the rate
of growth, and the yield ot timber, giv
ing, special attention to tho rod fir.
The best methods of cutting and han
dling tho timber will also bo observed,
though this is of secondary Import
ance. The site of operations Is ono of
the most inaccessible that could be
found. Care was taken to have con

was regarded as a Joke. Tho eleven

won only one, defeating tho Harris-

Progress continued steadily till in
1890, when the. Indians won their first
victory of importance, downing Dick
inson 28 to G. The team of that year
played Princeton, Yale, Harvard and
Pennsylvania, scored on tho Klls and
Tigers and held Harvard to a scant 4
to 0 victory. The Quakers' 21 to 0
score was tho only t'ount of any size
mode by opponents.
In 1890 "Pop" Warner assumed

The 1900 team went back a little
and lost by big Bcoros to Yale, Har

and tho team lost seven gamoB, won
four, and tied ono. Cornell, Harvard,
and Michigan all took tho measure of
the fleet Indians. But tho warriors
camo back in 1902, and, though losing
to Harvard, had tho satisfaction of
.boating ' Pennsylvania.
In 1903 tho Indians boat everybody
except . Princeton and Harvard, and
fell only one point behind the latter.
Pennsylvania, Swarthmore and North
western were included among tho vic
tims. Penn's great eleven v of 1904
succeeded in walloping the redskins,
by eighteen points and Harvard also
beat thorn, but no other team was
equal to the task. Tho same teams
again turned the trick in 1905.
Since that time tho Indians have
lost only two games. Harvard beat
thorn 5 to 0 In 190G and Princeton de
feated thorn 16 to 0 last year, but
Syracuse, Michigan and Pennsylvania

Genius of Hard Work.
Most persons have assumed that the
Indians' wonderful performances re
sulted solely from the natural skill
of the red men, but such is not the
case. The genius of hard work plays
the greatest part In the success of
teams wearing the big "C." No squad
in the country is driven as hard as
the Indians. The head coach, War
ner, believes constant practice is tho
price of football success, and there is
being tackled, and to dodgo and catch
The mighty warriors who make Hip
Warner's first team havo to 'take up
this practice first, tho same ob tho
humblest hunch of scrubs. There is
no man on the team who becomes so
skilled that he is allowed to lose sight
of the foct that a never coaslng prac
tice at the rudiments Is tho best way
to develop a winning football team.
And that is the explanation of the
skill with which the Indians follow tho
ball, and con be relied on in case of
fumbloB to recover the ball four timos
out of five.
Team Loses Good Men.
Carlisle has lost a number of its

only five veterans are bock. A newly
passed rule forbidding any player to
represent the school more than four
years on the. gridiron cost a number
of.jnen and injuries will keep out a
couple more stars. The most serious
loss Is Houser, whoso injured back
makes it next to impossible for him
! to play Saturday.
What Pennsylvania specially needs
to watch is tho Indian use of tho for
ward pass. This has been developed
by the aborigines to a great degree
of perfection. Thoro is nothing hap
hazard about throwing or catching the
ball, as was tho cose last year. Every
thing this season seeniB to bo deadly
accurate, the outcomo of careful plan

FOR FAIR PLAY.
Probably tho ono feature of Satur
day's game with Nebraska, outside the
playing, was the thoroughly sports
manlike attitude of the Minnesota
rooters towards their opponents.
When the Nebraska team came on the
field, when their band appeored and
marched to their place, and when
their Individual players were laid low,
they were cheered repeatedly. It was
the worthy treatment of a worthy

DOGS ON THE MISSOURI CAMPUS.
All the Dogs In Town Were Staked
"Dog-gone" wos tho expression used
by many or Columbia's worthy citizens
on Monday morning. And that state
ment was very truthful, for on that
morning dogs of all kinds were scarce
except in one place; the campus
around the modicul building of Mis
souri university. Here were "staked
out" dogs of varied descriptions.
There were pointers, setters, bull
dogs, collies, curs and a largo ma
