Tho dlfforoncoB botwoen tho two fac
tions on tho athlotlc board ovor tho
proposed changes in tho government
of tho university athletics wore
brought to n peaceful Hottlomont Sat

not given to tho affair. Undoubtedly
tho same end could have been reached
If tho troubles of tho Btudont mombors
of tho board had not boon aired. Tho
publicity of tho disagreement only
nerved to bring into a bad light boiiio
mombors of tho faculty who really
meant no wrong. The student mem
bers of the board however, are not
entirely to blame for their actions.
for tho course the loaders of the sug
gested changos pursued boro the ear
marks of Bolf-nggrandlzoment.
The students, who possess equal
rights with tho men of the faculty on
the athletic board, were not taken Into
the conildenco of tho moverB back of
tho proposed changos. Tho plan of a
new rule was sprung on thorn 'With

was a move to establish the oHlco of
athletic director, the occupant of
which was to havo full sway In ath
letic matters. They believed this
meant tho usurpation of tho pow
ers of the athletic board. The reso
lutions were bo indefinite in their
details that they gave the students
good grounds for their conceptions of
Ill-intentlonB. If these had been drawn
up moro in detail tho trouble which
arose over tho recommendations to
tho regents would never have come up.
It was In not doflning clearly JiiBt
what the real status of the athletic,
board was to be that the faculty moil
who drew up tho resolutions were
wrong. This mistake gave tho stu
dents gopd grounds for protesting, but
not for making their troubles public.
Tho dissenters from fho proposed
plan could havo accomplished the
same at tho same time they would
havo saved the faculty members of
tho board from, rocolvlng n censure
which they did not deserve. Both sides
to the deplorable affair meant right
but both pursued the wrong methods
to accomplish their ends. A little
cooler thought on the part of both
would have dope away with all cause
for" tho trouble. It was simply a mis
understanding that gavo rise to the
disagreement and should have boon
settled' before It was given publicity.

AffAIR IS A SUCCESS
OLD MAIDS HAVE HARMONIOU8
MEET UNSOPHISTICATED MEN
8oclal Affair of Y. M. C. A. Proves To
Be Popular and May Be Re
peated in the Near
Tho flrBt of a number of social
affairs was given Inst Saturday even
ing by the Y. M. C. A. and tho Y. W.
C. A. The entertainment took the
form of an old maids' convention, but
after the convention finished its busi
ness the people all adjourned to the
Y. W. C. A. rooms, where an Informal
entertainment was provided.
Tho convention proper wns held in
tho temple theatre, and about 300
were present to witness the delibera
tions of that august body. This part
of the entertainment was declared by
all to be a greut success and was
carried off without a hitch.
Wear Appropriate Costumes.
Tho old maids in attendance at the
convention were costumed in a man
ner appropriate to the occasion nnd all
who had failed to safely reach the
matrimonial harbor, whether "long or
short, fat or thfn, pretty or homely,'
were welcomed with open arms. One
of tho features of the evening was a
machine which guaranteed to fulfill
the wish of the old maid truthful
enough to correctly tell her age.
After the conclusion of tho conven
tion "the winsome maids practiced
their wiles upon tho unsophisticated
men," and It Is confidently believed
that the ranks of the fair maids were
seriously depleted. At any rate every
one declared that they had had the
best of good times.
Affair Is Enjoyable.
Tho affair was the first joint social
function of the Y. M. C. A. and Y. W.
C. A. that has been given this year,
and wns a great success. Tho even
ing wns spent in an entirely informal
manner and resulted in many people
broadening their circle of acquaint
ances. It Is expected that other so
cial affairs of the same nature will fol
low In the near future.
Tho members of the second team at
California this yenr have been denied
emblems because in the paBt tho men
have not warn them and have not
seemed to appreciate them.
The Syracuse Y. M. C. A. is soon
to try a mock breach of promise suit.
