Why have not the officers of the uni
versity oratorical association decided on
some positive line of action? Are we go
ing to have the local contest? If so, it
is time that we were informed of the
"We have heard it said during the past
week that the effort to have the regents
furnish students books at cost is a direct
slam at the "co-operative" book store.
It is not. Spite work is not the incentive.
Those most prominent in the movement
are honest and sincere.
The college settlement committee has
made its report for January. It is a la
mentable fact that the report does not
slfow the vigor and progress in the work
that could be expected. At first thought
this might be considered as due to indif
ference on the pail of students. We
doabt if this is true. January is a poor
month to push outside work. First,
there is the Tf-nrinn after the holiday va
cation. Then comes a spell of '(ram
ming.' ' After this a siege of examina
tions. But, whatever the cause for tho
poor showing of January, the February
report must not be allowed to call for an
apologetic foot note.
There has been introduced in the house
of our State Legislature a bill to prohibit
foot-ball in the state. It is quite natural
for people out of col lege to be opposed to
our national college game, foot-ball. Not
understanding the real merits of the
game and hearing only of the accidents
which occasionally happen, one is very
apt to become prejudiced. Professiona
lism has donn much to lower this invig
orating college game in the eyes of the
public. Men out side of college have
gone into the game merely from merci
naiy motives, and in such cases the fea
tures of the game which can be made
bad have been abused and magnified.
Professionalism will spoil any sport, but
if this game is kept within college bounds
and carried on by college men it remains
the typical, manly, American college
sport. It is not yet known what our
legislature will do with the bill. As it
now stands it may be rejected on the
grounds of unconstitutionality. Many
of the legislators seem to be in favor of
some action against the game.
The senior class will meet Friday after
noon to elect officers.
Rev. Bliss made a short address in the
chapel Thursday morning.
Nearly all the material for the Junior
Annual is now in and ready for press.
Mr. G. N. Libby left the University
last Monday evening for his home near
Elk Creek, Neb.
Prof. Sherman's bible class is taking
up a new phase of work. It meets at
12:30 sharp on Sunday, at the city Y.M.
