THE TRAINING TABLE.'
Tho attompt of Iowa and other
schools of tho Missouri Valley confor
.. enco to force the abolition of tho foot
ball training tablo Is childish to say
tho least Tho roason for tho action
of, tho Hawkoyo representatives In
seeking by a llaBh proposition to got
nn unfavorable voto on the training
tablo proposition which ho know would
be rovorsed wlion Kansas was given a
chance to speak Is not clear.
At the Des Moines meeting only six
of tho seven conforenco schools wore
represented, they boing Nebraska, Iowa,
Drake, Washington, Ames, and Mis
souri. Tho KansaB delegate was de
layed by poor, train connections and
was not -present at the opening of tho
session. With this fact In mind,
Iowa's representative forced the train
ing tablo Issue to a vote, with tho re
sult that tho tablo was abolished by
a voto of 4 to Nebraska and Mis
souri votlrtg in tho negative., This
gives the necessary two-thirds major
ity and legally tho table Is dead for
, tho time bolng.

Kansas will protest tho training table
action, and at tho noxt consideration
tho voto will bo 4 to 3 against the
tablo, which, however, "is not tho requl
Bito two-thirds. Tho present action
will thus bo rovorsed.
Knowing thus tho certainty of an
ultimate re-establishment of tho table,
tho action of Iowa appears pettish.
Her attompt to kill tho training tablo
merely ronowB nn old -bitterness and
does good to no one. It is readily
soon that Iowa Is anxious for tho abo
lition of tho tablo becauBo as a mem
ber of. tho Chicago conference sho is
not allowed to maintain a table, while
other Missouri Valley schools are.
This works to her disadvantage, but
nevertheless such useless legislation

THE CALL OF ORATORY.
In thoso duyB of ours perhaps it is
no wonder that tho avorago college
man who looks forward to public life
of any kind, 1b Interested in debate
rather than in oratory sinco tho for
mer prosents tho element of conflict
with clauh of arms and report of rapld
flring guns, as woll as comradoship in
work. To such a man the orator Is
either a visionary youth or an aged
ascetic who assays to climb up Into
tho very heavens and hurl thunder
bolts or "Bcatter star-dust" upon his
New $1000.00 shipment

In tuno with tho spirit of tho ago,
the modern man demands of tho pub

quick lunch counter whoro lio may

Blx-courso dinner with plenty of paint
ed china, flowerB and lettuce leaves.
And hero dobato and oratory part com
pany, tho former attempting to meet
tho demands with a stylo of torso
Bpeech, baro Illustrations and pages of
figures and statistics appealing primar
ily to tho intellect, while tho latter
holds to tho old beaten path and ap
peals to tho fooling side of man as
well as to his intellect. ThiiB wo aro
likely to wondor whether or not tho
day of oratory is past.
But tho tlmo too often comes when
bald facts stir no interest, and enthu
siasm for tho World Almanac falls,
and -man goes from tho long lunch
countor with no appetite. It Is hero
tho orator sees his opportunity and
gooB at tho problem from a different
angle. Ho takes tho concentrated
grains of truth and works them Into a
form that gives delight and satisfac
tion to tho most dyspeptic, and indeed
does more, for ho BtlrB tho man to now
activity. Surely oratory is ono of those
ideal interests that enlists in Ub sor
vlco tho all-round man. It cries: "Lot
him who has a man's voice como; lot
him who has a man's strength como;
lot him who haB a man's convictions
como; and, In shprt, whosoever will,"
