Purpose of Scheme.
The purpose of the '.association
would bo 4o give more distinction and
honor to tho acquirement of an "N."
By making the wearing of tho letter a
Tnark of greater 'value than, it now
has, interest in athletics would "be
gonprally stimulated, and tho move
ment would in that way rebound to
the advantage of tho unlvqrsity as a
At the presont time thore are a
number of men who have won "N's"
in some branch of .athletic activity
who are not known to have such
honors by tho student body in gen-,
oral. Tho "N" in these cases means
no distinction Whatever and it is this
condition which tho new association
would peek to improve.
As a secondary aim, the asBopiation
Would endeavor to get in touch with
the High schools of the state and to
' develop in this manner an Interest

' . Dlscoijf-age "N Wearing.
One practical Worm which tho as-
.s'oqlation would undertake would be
the dlscouragemont of. tho practice of-
)6mlscous wearing of "N" sweat-
,.ors, caps, and buttons. At present
thre'ao manr sWdentB in 'the. ,unl-i

' Tho right to wear an "N" has been!
'tr'adftionally conferred hj?on"those stu
dents who had excelled In athletics
and It is the intention of tho organl-
zors of tho "N" association to
what can bo dono by moral suasion
to curtail tho present evil. '
In this connection one of tho load
ers in tho enterprise yesterday re
lated tho story of tho freshman who
walked up to an upporclassman on tho
campus and in all lnnoconso asked
whoro ho could purchaso an "N"
sweator "like those tho football mdn
