Now that tin football season is oxer
there is time to think of oratory, de

of students from time to time here

The boys from Ames played foot
ball and were signally defeated .y the
Ncbi.iskan's early in the season' and
it was during that game that an Ames
player sustained a broken leg. The
fracture was attended to bv a .ocal
physician xxflio was told by the Ames
boys that the bill would be paid by
Nebraska, they 'having been M inform
ed, by the manager of the . .raska
team. In due course of time the bill
was Mm to tJic athletic board xx-ho

alleging that each team xvas to care

Dr. Timothy Dxxlght of Yale in his
iV'iL'nntion created a xaeancy xxlilch
is easier made than filled. He 'succeed
ed Noah Porter in 1800. Hih gandfatb
er, Timothy Dxvight, xvas president of
ale from 1705 until 1817. He xxtis the
ablest of Yale's early presidents. The
present Timothy Dxvight. when he took
his seat in 1800 Mild thnt be would
withdraw from the post whenever he
bcame convinced tha't Ills usefulness
to tflie Univensty was at an end Presi

November 10, 1828, and was graduated
from Yale in 1819 as saliitatorinn. Be

Amherst, Brown, and Oberlln are
casting about for the desired persons
to lead them to future greatness, The
fact that college presidents arc not
found in every pulpit or In every eh-iir
of the college is apparent; and the
colleges and universities seem of ne
cessity very willing- to wait until
the deslrnl man shall appear. The cor
poration of ltrown unixerslty sun ly
needs sympathy In Us jmst and pres

The disqualifying of college athletes
as professionals uiny perhaps be car
ried too far. Notice the case of Gor
don Clarke of tin University of Chica
go, who was disquullllcd prior to the
Chleagxi-WlwoiiBln gnino. The pro
fessional act of wl.leh he xti accused
was committed while Clurke xxms a
vtudent In Ouiahti High school and
prior to the passage of the itnti-pio-fosslonal
rule by the Universities,
lie was a Ivonu llde student xvf Chicago
months before the passage of the rule
on professionalism. Technically, of
course. Clarke Is guilty, but Ulic spirit
xxns purely Unit of an iiniutvur. No
agitation on the part of the exillege
warned young ( lurkc and according
to Ills brother Henry, the act xxim en
tirely Innocent as rewards inotlxe. The
action of the athletic authorities cre
ates an e post faelo law for atihlctes.
