.There seeuns to In) no Immediate
prospect for a lot up between Ohlcngo
University and Universities of Michi
gan, Wlsuonsln and Illinois. Roth sides
remain firm and neither will make amy
concessions. Ciusiper Whitney takes the
matter up In Harper's Weekly and at
tempts to make an impartial summary
of the ease. Ho says:
"Willie there ewui'inly Is justice I in
Michigan's claim for a home game on
alternate years, Mils was a sorry way
of obtaining her desires. Chicago had
as yet shown no reluctance, to accept
Michigan's first suggestion when the
hitters ultimatum was served, with
a t limit belli nd It.
"Tho Chicago board, thus ap
proached, did not (are to "wait to con
sider details. Chicago was not to bo
coerced by Michigan or any one eUe,
and Ituird's proposition wis promptly
and unanimously rejected. Stagg's an
swer was Immediately followed by a
conference of President Adams, Prsl
dent Draper and Professor PuttougiU,
and the publication of a series of rej
oin Mollis wus coin. rident with aiv an
nouncement Mint ( lileiigo had taken on
Drown for the Thanksgiving dny
game. And the end Is not yet.
"Ivinpliusls should bo given the im
mediate point at. Issue iR'twocn Chi
cago and Michigan ami her following.
It is interesting to record Mint the
break has not arisen at all out of n
consideration of the ronl merit, of
Michigan's contention. She herself
in her cmulier approach lias not per
mitted that, Chicago's rejection of
her proposition was indication of the
tatter's unwillingness to relinquish
an established policy simply upon Its
being demanded and demanded at
the Mint of a gun, as it were.
"On the merits of the home games
and equal division of gate receipts- -there
is positively no room for discus
sion. Kvery college must have its
big games at home on alternate years,
and of course the gate receipts should
be equally divided no mutter what
the disparity in value one year from
another, due to location.
"No other method can be tolerated
in college sort.
"The justice of home games and
equal division of gate receipts cannot
for a nionioent be disputed. This is
one of the iirst principles of college
ort--fuir to all, and necessary to
the welfare of amnteur athletics.
"Chicago could not. leeause of her
tate teems to o'rhor western unieii
tate terms' toother western universi
ties. That is. she could not do so and
not offend the erhics of college sport.
We cannot permit college foot ball to
lie made tho subject of a business
deal: we cannot lose sight of the fact
that the games arc held merely for
sport and for the satisfying of honor
able athletic rivalry not for the pur
pose of making money.
"Chicago greatly offended sportsmen
and the ethics of college sport, by
emphasizing her larger gate, or using
it as a bate for home games."
At a meting n few days ago of the
Chicago alumni club tho following res
olution was adopted:
"Whereas, The Universities of Mich
igan, Wisconsin and Illinois have com
bined and refused to meet the Univer
sity of Chicago in any form of ath
let'ie sports, and understanding the
facts to lie that Chicago is willing Jo
play return games in any place, ac
cepting any sum which Michigan will
accept to piety in Chicago.
"Re it resolved, We, the Alumni
club of Mic University of Chicago, take
this opportunity of making public ex
pression of our firm belief in Mr.
Stagg, director of physical culture at
the University of Chicago, and also of
putting ourselves on record as willing
to adhere to the end of the issue of
athletics brought upon' him by tho
Universities 'of Illinois. Michigan nnd
