WEATHER OR CONVICTS?
Tho attendance at drill yostorday
was disappointingly small; whether
this deplorable condition was duo to
tho exigencies of tho weather, or to
tho fact that many of tho embryo sol
diers woro engaged In tracking the
escaped convicts, wo cannot Bay.
A CLEVER TRICK?
Wo note that tho Daily Kansan has
rooontly boon using much space and
enorgy trying to convlnco its roadors
that thoy have a right to tho Missouri
Valloy championship. Unfortunately,
wo havo not tho tlmo and space to
dovoto to such muttorings.
Wo fool it nocossary, however, to
tako sufficient spaco to contradict sev
eral etatomonts which tho KanBan
boob fit to make. In the first place,
Coach Stlehm haa not refused to con
sider any planB submitted by Coach
Hamilton, but, on the othor hand, haB
himself mado three aoparato and dis
tinct proposals for a aeries and haa
nr.p.nntnd Hamilton's nroDOBal of
March 8, which mado no montlon of
guaranteeing expenses. Tho lateness
of tho Boason Is an Inevitable roault
of Jayhawk dollberatoneas.
This trick of apparent Indecision on
Kansas' part 1b a clover one, but be
comes apparent to tho moro discern
ing. By parleying for tlmo they will
forco Nebraska to rofuso tho Berlea,
an action which can bo attributed to
foar on tho part of tho CornhuBkerB.
Wo trust, however, that prevailing
opinion In tho valloy schools will glvo
tho championship to tho team who
has boaten ovory ono of Its opponents
(aomo of them In four declalvo
games), and In case Kansas forcos ub
to tho extremity of waiting until sum
mer, wo rest In tho security of public
sentiment. Wo aro Bomowhat con
Boled by tho news that ovon Kansas'
own agricultural school rofuses to
rocognlzo as champions a. team with
whom thoy themselves havo divided
It 1b our slncorest wish that oro
long wo may bo able to submit a
proposition which will suit tho Jay
hawkora, bo that our championship
paay bo unquestionably established.
On November 25 we were robbed,
by Mr. Hlnkoy, of a football game;
early In Docomber wo fell Into tho
grasp of a typhoid fovor epidemic; at
tho end of tho Drat semester wo wero
treated to a now system void of ex
aminations? for tho past month wo
havo boon burled undor six feet of
snow, and now, with no means of
OBcape, wo aro loft to tho mercy of
