COLLEGE EDUCATORS TO MEET I AGREE ON BIG PROM DATES
ALL OUT BUT HANZUK
ATHLETIC BOARD FIND8 PROPO
SITION IMPRACTICABLE AT
FIELD TOO VALUABLE A RISK
Horticulturists Claim That Freexlng
Will Kill Thousand Dollar Crop
of 8od No More Visions of
Dutch Sport for Studes.
'I he skating rink proposition has
lallen through Such 1h the mournful
rumor which la creeping over the cam
pus, and Bad to relate, this rumor Is
rounded on fact. Visions of Joyful
hours spent on the Bmooth Ice which
should cover the athletic field are to
be entertained no longer, for the pow
ers that be have looked Into the mat
ter and find that k is Impracticable.
At the regular monthly meeting ot
the athletic board this was one of the
hlef questions that came up for dis
cusBlon Student Interest had beenoln
raised to Buch a ptlch that the board
realized the need ror action, either
tnvorahle or adverse The committee
which had been appointed to look into
sbe feasibility of the plan made a
geful investigation and reported that
ijni the standpoint of the expense
'noninjury to the field the matter was
Before arriving at this conclusion
the committee consulted the horticul
tural department and learned that the
freezing would go to such a depth
that the new Bod which has been but
recently planted would be completely
killed. When tho plan was first con
sidered it was thought that the freez
ing would not injure tho sod, but this
later Judgment put a different light
on the matter. Tho expense Incurred
in sodding the field amounted to $1,000
aud the upkeep necessary to main
tain it in condition during the sum
mer months makes It a valuable part
of the campus. Therefore, even
though admission was charged to the
rftok, the receipts would not "be suffi
cient to warrant tho destruction of the
Bod aud replacing it next spring.
Not only did this finding of the
committee put a quietus on the plan.
but further consideration revealed the
fact that the ground would not bo la
iit condition lor baseball and track
next spring. The frequent melting
of the ice during warm snaps would
soak the ground to such a depth that
it would require a long season of con
tinued dry weather to make tho turt
firm and in condition to withstand
hard usage. "On the whole," Bald Dr.
Jowott, of the athletic board, "lt is
not safe to do it. The risk of ruining
the field is so great that it should not
be incurred for tho sake of a month
and a half of skating. It is better that
the plan be dispensed with."
And so Ihe effort to provide a place
-where all the University might get
together had to bo abandoned. Tho
