o college where athletics and ora
tory exist Is more than half a College
unless both of these Nourish. The
average student Is apt to be too one
sided. For instance, he will cheer on
ly for orators and debaters and hiss
all attempts to boom athletics. An
other will do exactly the reverse. The
result of this Is one-sldednesx on the
part of all the students, although two
sides claim a part. Then why for the
good of oratory and debating and
athletics can we not get together. In
stead of leaving the management of
athletics to a few not generally rep
resentative students and giving up all
power to these few next time put on
the board of control fellows who will
hne the good of the University at
heart and not the gloritleatiou of their
special sport or branch of athletics.
It would seem very foolish for any
,oung man, especially one in the Uni
versity, to enlist in any national guard
company at the present time.
There is no immediate prospect be
fore the militia of actual service; no
other prospect except a camp of six
months or so at hard drilling and on
poor fare. The advice given to the
t cadets and students by the Governor,
the Chancellor, the Deans and Lieu
tenant Stotseiiberg was directly to the
point. There is no need at present
and when the need arises then will
be room for us all. No one doubts for
n moment but that the University will
come strongly to the front should the
exigencies of the occasion require.
The object In giving the O'Mahoney
medal was to bring out nil that was in
the men in the University. The result
did not show that this was done with
the one exception of I'illsbury. The
standard was purposely put high with
the object of forcing the men to great
er effort than they might x Inclined
to make if no standard were required.
It seems to have had the effect of forc
ing or scaring them out. The donor of
the medal seems to Ik of the opinion
that the standard was not too high
and cites the work of Pillsbury in sup
port of his assertion. Pillsbnry's work
exceeded his own expectations and
that of his friends and there is no
saj ing what other members of the
University might have done tinder the
adverse circumstances. Another
thing to be considered was the very
poor ground which the athletes had
for their meeting. When we remember
that but thirty-five KinU were need
ed to make up the necessary 400 re
quired, that the track was simply
wretched, and thnt the competition
was not close, it does not seem Im
probable that with a decent track and
close comK'tition the requirements in
the case would be fulfilled. As are
certain of having a decent track for
our next competition we Iiojhj that
next j ear's pentathlon will be all thnt
is desired as an athletic content.
In the meantime get to work on the

and as they are on the negative of the

course, we know nothing about de

Tlie signal victory over Colorado
College in the inter-state debates is
encouraging and our debaters are to

liar to some people, that the evident

COLLEGE REL1GIOI- CENSUS.
The results of the religious census
of the State Universities have recently
beeu published by Professor Francis
W. KeUey, of the University of Mich
igan. These figures have been com
jiared with those of a similar census
of the Presbyterian denomination. It
should be said that Professor Kelsey
was formerly a professor in lake For
est University, a rresbyteriai institu
tion. Some of the main conclusions
may be summed up breifly: 'The sta
tistics show, first, that the majority
of all the student in the State Univer
sities are members of churches, about
one-half being members of tie so-called
Evangelical churches. Ii sixteen
separate State Universities, at least
one student in every six belongs by
membership or afllllation, to the Meth
odut Episcopal church. At the Uni
versity of Michigan, last yrnr, there
were more than three-fourths as many
Presbyterian Mmlents as at Princeton
