Tho doublo-hoador basket ball gamo
to bo played in tho Armory this after
noon will dotormlno tho championship
in tho aortas of games that is now
being played by tho different classes
in tho university. Tho timo of tho
game lias boon arranged with tho
special object in view of making it bo
that no students can complain that
tho timo of tho gamo is such that
ho cannot nttond. Not only should
class spirit induco ovoryono to attend
but tho financial support of each class
is needed to mako tho affair n sue-
Tho action of tho senate in tighten
ing tho requirements of unclasslllcd
students Is an action that Is no moro
than fair, to tho rest of tho students
of tho school. That tho university Is
not a. placo to tako one long holiday
is a thing that It Is sometimes neces
sary to drive homo to students rathor
forcibly. There Is undoubtedly a groat
doal of good dono by the easy require
ments which, permit Bomo students to

previous work has been such that
thoy aro not qualified to tako any reg
ular work. Thero is an indication,
however, that something is wrong
whon as many students attempt to
reglstor for unclassified work as lias
been the case during tho past yoar.
CARE (8 NEEDED.
No idea moro injurious to tho good
of the. school could woll bo circulated
than that the professors of thlB uni
versity aro engagod in a wholesale
lobbying schom'o among tho members
of the stato, legislature Such an idea
thas found root and has been developed
in somo enterprising quarters into a
.good sized scandal., ,
The work that tho, legislature Is do
ing Ib of such a nature that it is of
very great lntores't not onlyto uni
versity professoros but to students as
well, and it; would bo a very strange
.state of. affairs if the fa'ces of many
university men woro not familiar
about the stato house. Tho faqt that
menhave occasion, to appear before
different committees frequently and

this last story has been spread is but
another illustration of this fact. If
tboBo who aro responsible for tho
printing of university news would use
a Uttlo moro caro In ascertaining the
truth, they would find that tho uni
versity is not engaged in any groat
and corrupt schemes and that tbo only
desire of those university men who
aro interesting themsolves in tho work
of tho loglBlatura is to promoto tho
good of the stato both directly and by
improving its educational systom.
CLA88 POLITIC8 AGAIN.
When tho oloctlon of officers in ono
of the upper classes is not able to
creato enough Interest to get out moro
than a moro handful of students and
when tho election of officers is treatod
ns Jittlo more than a Joke both by
thoso taking part In tho election and
thoso who aro elected to offlco there
Is something radically wrong. It
ought to bo ono of tho highest "honors
to be chosen as ono of tho officers
la a class, but this Is cortainly far
from tho condition at tho present
The question that at onco arises is
that anyone's mind Is what 1b tho
cause of this stato of affairs. It cer
tainly is not duo to the fact that
thero is a lack of ambition among stu
dents at tho university. A Uttlo inves
tigation will rovoal tho fact that It is
tho same thing In a modified form that
keops tho best citizens out of local
politics, that Is tho trouble in tho uni
versity. When an offlco goes not to
thoso whoso work has boen of tho
highest grado but to those who Jiavo

think of for their own ends It is not
to bo expected that tho men with the
highest ideals and tho greatest abil
ities will be chosen.
Tho solution of the trouble, If ono
can talk of solving a difficulty that
is more tho result of mental view
point rather than nny temporary
Kauso, Is the same solution that is
Ladvocated for tho reform of municipal
and state politics; namely, to get the
best men actively interested in class
affairs so that thoy will tako tho
timo to attend class meetings. If it
were posslblo to do this the.ro would

spirit and no moro, begging to. got the
