United States Now a World Power
Which Should Take Its Place
Among Other Powers in '
Settling Affairs. -
In political sclenco 4 yestorday Pro
fessor George Elliott Howard gave an
Interesting, discussion of the Monroo
doctrine and tho future attitude of
the United States to other nations,
especially to thoBe of the Orient. In
tho course, of his remarks, Professor
Howard gave a brief BketcK of the
Monroe dpctrlne.ln its, .various condi
tions and applications. His views wer.a.
of particular interest in view of the.
. dlacuBsIpna and applications. His
view -of the discussion of the same
topic at the peace conference Tues
day. Beginning wltU tho application of
the doctrine in J 826 In connection
with tho Panama congress, ho brought
Mt down to the Venozuela trouble in
1895. Though there are many who ad1
vocate that the Monroe doctrine has
been outgrown, Professor Howard
does not think that the tlmo for dis
carding It" has yet come. He bellove3.
1 that Germany with Us war-like em
peror Thigh t still encroach" upon, the
, Americas If such barriers as are Inter
posed by the Monroe doctrine were
A New Policy.
Yet Professor Howard maintains
that with tho growth of democracy
the United StateB should adopt a now
policy, one worthy of a great nation
..among nations, f like a strong man
among men. , Our nation should usp
Its power for humanity and social uo
11ft. Professor Howard voiced tho
hope jthat the United States might
henceforth be In a position to forbid
such massacres as have occurred In
Russia and Armenia In recent years.
In Professor Howard's opinion,
America's strength with other coun
tries Jb dependent on her national up
rightness. In criticising the attitude
of Jojin L. Web8ter who, in Tues
day's peace convocation, advocated the
.enlargement Nof the army and navy
as a- means of securing peace. Prcn
feasor Howard said that ournatlon
would rhold her place among tho other
powers: only by" "her national Integrity
and mortllty,.r jrorthl8tnatiqn.'s "right
i eoua, JWfng he attributed America'a
prominent rolo in the eastern ques-
, ;tlon. He said tha't America Is', the
greafesf irifluenc'o In -tho 'Orient to
day. Her du,ty as such .a power 1b to
tcall the sl-hundred -millions of easti-
wern people' to theT'Chriatlan clvlllza-
tionC To' maintain such armies,? and
niivles as do England and other powers

CHAMPION8HIP QAME8 TO BE IN

ON THREE DAYS NEXT' WEEK

In Kansas City, Mo., and Man
agers 8elecl Rainbow Rink
on the West 8lde.
Tho series of throe gamoa for tho
championship of tho Missouri vnlloy
basket-ball league will bo played In
Kansas City, Kans., on Thursday, Fri
day and Saturday nights of noxt week.
These days won Bottled updn by Man
ager Eager of Nebraska and Manager
Lansdon of tho Kansas flvo nt a meet
ing held In Kansas City Wednesday
afternoon. Rainbow hall onA Minne
sota avenuo was selected as tho place
for playing tho games.
Originally It waB Intended to hold
tho . games- in Kansaa Clty,t,Mp but
tho inability of the managers of th)
two teams to find a suitable hall In
tho big city necessitated tho transfer
ring of the series to tho West Sldo.
Convention hall, which had been con
sidered as a good place for holding
the games, Is engaged by Gypsy Smith
for a continuation of his revival meet
ings next week and tho securing of
this place for tho games was out of
Kansas Much Interested.
Manager Lansdon informed Man
ager Eager that tho studontB nt the
Kansas stato school aro greatly inter
ested. In tho arrangements for tho con
test. Ho said that they would send
a large delegation to Kansas City to
witness tho clash of their men with
tho cornhuskors. Tho. distance from
Lawrence Is so short that it will bi
posslblo tor tho students to leave
Lawrence early in the evening and
reach' KansaB City in time rto 'sob' tho
gdmeB. They may return to Lawrence
after tho game and bo on hand for
their early morning classes.
The Kansas manager Bald that the
jayhawkor flvo It? putting In -some hard
licks In making ready for the games
In order to be suro to clinch tho title.
He said the quintet did not expect any,
snap in tho thtee games and feared
tho cornhuskers might turn a trick on
them and tako two out of tho three.
Considered an Advantage.
The fact that the contests are to bo
played on a neutral floor is thought
to be an advantage to tho cornhuskors.
If one of the games was to' have been
played at Lawrence it must ' in all
probability have, been won by tho
home five. Tho glass backgrounds
proved a great handicap to tho corn
huskers early In tho, season when Dr.
Clapp and his pupils visited Lawrencp
and there is every reason to believe
they would work just as much to the
detriment of the visitors the 'next
time as they did then.
Manager r Eager is preparing hla
baseball-schedule for this spring, and
probably wjll bo ready to give It out.
the fore part of next week, It wll
Include two .trips away from homo,
and a number of. games.to, be played
In Lincoln. v
' it Is expected that the large, number
of games which it is ''hinted -will bo
played by the cornhuskors this year
will serve as an incentive, to many
good ball players to jojn the present
squad, that is" workjng out dally In the
gymnasium. There are several places
on the nine to be filled, and .the ntoro
?hon who try for the squad the great-'
