February 10, 1SU0 Dear Sir: The
Athletic board earnestly requests 'that
you give your most serious attention
to the mutter of obtaining subscrip
tions to cancel the deilclt of $325 fur
the foot bull season of 1808.
The question of raising this money
is of grine importance and involves
the continuation of athletics for the
coming year. Subscriptions have been
coming in slowly and it seems that
special effort Is necessary.
In the Interest of athletics and the
University at l'.irge, wo hope that .sou

During the last week the University
celebrated the thirtieth anniversary of
its birth. During this time it has
grown from n school, with an enroll,
inent of i:i(), to a University, with 1915
students in 1807.08 and the almost eer.
tain prospect of 12100 during the pres.
cut year. Hut the University lias
grown not alone In numbers. In 1871.2
it was a University in little more than
the name. In fact it was not farther
luhanced, perhaps not so far, In many
respects as some of the high schools
of today. The majority of its l'.M stu.
dents were in the preparatory school,
which was mninitnincd as a necessary
adjunct till only a few years ago, when
it was thought possiole to leave such
work to the high schools and acade.

j ears of its existence two men were
graduated with the bachelor's degree.
During the three years last past eighty

gress. The life of the University has
not been long, but its growUli has been
phenomlnnl and its support, from the
legislature and the state, has been
mo.st generous and most satisfactory.
For its support during the first bien.
nium $37,972 were appropriated, while
the amount set aside, for a similar pur.
pose, during the blcnnium just closing
was frlOfl.fluo. The pawt of the Uui.
verslty has been remarkable but Its
future is still more promising. On
( barter day the governor signed the
liill passed with a total of wily twenty,
three votes against it in both houses
of the legislature, which provides a
permanent fund large enough for the
future proper maintenance of a great
University, to be derived from a tax
of one mill upon the total valuation of
the state, it is estimated that this tax
will amount to about $300,000 the first
$ ear and will Increase, of course, as
the nssessed valuation of tthc state is
raised. Tills amount will be sufllcient

My the traditions of the elders nnd

logue, professors and assistant profes
sors are entitled to be called "Profes

as "Mr." When a professor or instruc
tor in possession of a doctor's degree
ho may be addressed by the appella
tion or "Doctor."
"The members of the faculty that
have doctor's degrees have their indi
vidual 'preferences as to the war-1 of
address. As far as we have been able
to learn, a majority of them prefer
the title of "Professor." Instructors
equally honored with the doctoral de
gree will usually prefer the title of
"Doctor." Hut in such cases the stu

title he shall use. He cannot go far
"A little reflection will convince any
