The athletic board at Missouri uni
versity has voted to retain the train
ing table and it now looks as though
tho Missouri valley conforonce will
havo to keep the special feeding quar
ters provision intact Tho Kansan, tho
official paper of the University of
Kansas, takes tho following optimistic
view of the altuatlon:
Missouri Favors It.
"The athletic commltte'o of Missouri
university decided last Friday 'that
Missouri should cast hor vote in tho
Missouri valley conference for tho re
tention of tho training tablo. At tho
last conference meeting in JanuaryJDr..
Hqthorlngton, tho tlgef representative,
voted to abolish the tablo.. 'The
change In attitude was brought about
by student sentiment and tho solid
Btand of 'M' men for special training.
"At tho January conference meeting
it, was decided to abolish.' tho table if
in a period of sixty ""days ono-thlrdof
tho conference schools did jnot. protest
the action. Kansas and Nebraska'at
once protested and it was hoped that
Ames, would change her vote. Pew
considered that there was any chanco
that .Missouri would stand right about
faco and stand with Kansas and Ne
braska. i , . -
"Tho action of Missouri .'insures
training tables in the conference next
year, Iowa is against the idea be-'
ca'uso the Chicago conference rules
debar, the table from the Hawkey
school; Washington, Drake and Amos
plead that they cannot afford to main
tain special training quarters for foot
bailsmen." THE. BLACK j. MA8QUE8 ELECT
