FIRST MEETING IN'
TEMPLE LAST NIGHT
W. D. WEATHERFORD
THUR JORGENSON SPOKE.
ABOUT 500 STUDENTS WERE PRESENT
Value of a University Education Told
Life-Is Composed of a Battle
ora Game In Which Ono
Must Go in to Win.
About 500 students attonded the
meeting held in tho T.emplo theatre
inHt evening. Arthur Jorgonson nnd
W. D. Weatherford both spoke and Dr.
Condra presided. The meeting was
tho first of a series of Blmllar meet
ings to bo heTd in tho Temple each
evening between (7:50 and 8 o'clock
hy the Y. M. C. A. They ylll continue
through the remainder of this week,
closing Sunday., and will consist of
jiddresses by "Dad" Elliott. W. D.
Wca'thgrword and Arthur Jorgonson.
Arthur "Jorgonson In his address of
last evening spoke briefly on the pur
nose of a university education. He
said that wo have to have tho right
purpose, tho right ambitions and that
wo must get these In tho-university.
We have obligations to porform and
must fit ourselves for them properly.
Ho then took up the subject of tho
proper viewpoint. He believed that
ull men muBt be broad-minded wheth
er they are engaged in business or a
professor or any other pursuit,
V. D. Weatherford, tho principal
speaker of the evening, was next In
troduced. Ho spoke on "Tho Battles
or the College Man." He pictured llfo
as a battle In which man must engage.
The real man, he said, must got Into
tho fight Tor all that ho Is worth. Ho
must exort all of his vital force and
do tho biggest thing that ho can. In
- ft-word, ho musl go In to win.
nTo do this a man must storo up
onorgy at every available point At
the same tlmo ho must bo progres
sive. Business standards, university
standards, In fact all standards are
higher now than thoy wore a few
ye'anj ago. A man should always try
to do better than ho has been doing
and try to live the largest kirtdofa
Here he took up tho unwillingness
of people to got Into tho game, com
paring life to an athletic contest, Ho
spoke of stripping 'for tho game, and
compared It to a man's stripping
himself oXhis. weaknesses to got into
Battles In Life.
The romalndor of his 'address was
devoted to taking up tho various bat-.
ties which must be fought In nro. une
of these he pointed out was that many
pepple'nre afraid of tho truth. Even
though peoplo .know tho truth and
what thoy Bhbuld. do, thoy continue
" thoir petty practices and lose out en
tirely In flio battle.
Dishonesty and unfairness In busi
ness werp next djscussed. Tho col
logo man, ho bellovdd, 'should take a
stand against -this: ' He pointed- out
that there aro 200,000 college inonj
graduating every year and going out
"into business, anu-that If those would
all take such a s,tand the business
world at least "would soon bo honest.
fie showed that If a. man Ib not lion-
eat at college he will not bo when he
gets put. To illustrate (T1b, ho point
ed out tho results of "cribbing" upon
the naturp of the college man. Cheat-"
ltlg in an uxuniiuuuuu iiu iium in u
worse than stealing money In a bank,
because while the money catold be ro-
piaced the ehuirrEnlnqd by cheating
could never bo atoned for.
Getting In touch with now thought,
ho pointed "ou.. as- one essential to
winning "out In; the fight. The other

Kansas University Regents Want to
Abolish Game Unless New Rules
Make It Safer.
There Is a movement on foot at tho
University of Kansas, headed by two
of the regents of the university, to
abolish tho game of football from the
institution unless rules making tho
game much, less dangerous aro adopt
ed. William Alien White, tho great
Kansas editor, Is said to bo at th-?
head of the movement. Ho claims thnt
the gairie 1ft" dangerous, takes too
much of a student's tlmo, develops
brute instincts and loads to falso
Ideals, ajiiong 'tho 'students. . V .
The motion for tho abolishment of
tho game failed of passage at tho ro
cont mooting, but will undoubtedly bo
brought up ngain. A motion was
adopted requesting u- conference of
tho regents of- the schools In tho Mis
Bourl Valley to consider changes In tho
rules. A great deal of discussion has
beep nroused at Kansas oyer tho
movement. Coach Kennedy defends
the game, thinking it no more dangor
ous than other sports. Ho alleges It
Is healthful and says his football play
ers are among tho manliest- men ituthu
school. Their grades alBo have provod
Ihem up and above tho nvornpo of Hip
whole sludon't body.
Chancellor, Strong ot Kansas says
the gamo has real objections, and ronl
causo for them. Ho hos tyrltton a
number of members of the rules com
mittee telling them the gamo Is jn a
precarious stato in-uoverol universi
ties vnnd that" they, should bo very
careful if thoy wish to preserve Its
future IIo believes that their first
duty is toMho Individual students,
their parents and tho institutions, and
secondly, the public, No deflnlto stand
will probably bo taken until tho new
rules aro published.

penditure on New Field.
Tho annual financial roport of tho
university athletic board for tho year
lil0! has Just' boon Issuod by tho treas
urer, Loo J. Logan. It shows tho ath
letic llnanccK In good shapo, though
tho balance- on hand is a good doal
smaller than at tho beginning of the
yoar. This Is largely accounted for
by tho expoudlturo of nearly $1,000 on
Hold and grandstand.
Football was tho. only sport which
left a balance on. hand, the receipts
being $:!,:iKD greater than tho expendi
tures. Baseball, basketball, track
and cross-country all showed a deficit.
They were all small, however, and
were moro than balanced by football.
