To Have Sponsors
or Not the Question
The captains, majors and lieutenant
colonel of the high school cadet regiment
may or may not have sponsor this year,
according to the way each Individual of
.leer I set on the question. This waa til
aubstanc of an agreement reached at a
englliy of fliers' meeting held at the
school Tuesday morning.
For the last two months th sponsor
question has been the most mooted of
ihe school and It Is believed by many that
.t is not yet finally settled. Only five of
.he officers In the regiment who are
eligible to have sponsor are In favor of
the custom, and of the remaining number
all are stoutly opposed to It.
In his farewell address to the com
missioned officers. Lieutenant William
X. Haskell, former commandant, laid
especial stress upon the abolishment of
the sponsor custom, criticising It on the
Krounds that the whole affair was silly
In It aspects and that It worked no
benefit upon a military organisation.
Principal McHugh Is also very much op
posed to the practice because of the havoc
It works on studies.
Captain Arthur S. Cowan, the new
commandant, declares he has aever heard
of such a custom In army circles so he
could not give out a positive statement.
However, he is very much opposed to
anything which would cast a feminine
influence over the cadets and does not sec
how the introduction of the gentler sex
into the affairs of the cadet regiment
could possibly be of any great good.

Omaha Men's Views
Anions Interviews collected throughout
the country on Us demand for the in
clusion of Colonel Koosevell's name, with
ur without his consent, on the primary
ballots in all states that aro to have a
prcsidintial preference vote, the Chicago
Tribune give the following from Omaha:
Victor Rosewater, editor of The Omaha
Dec, and national committeeman from
Nebraska, today said regarding the pro
posed presidential primaries: "11 Mr.
Koosevelt Is willing to stand as a candi
date his name should go on our prefer
ential ballot. However, I do not think
the ballot should be loaded down with
the names of men w ho are not candidates.
If Mr. Koosevell's uainc Is placed on our
ballot without his consent, that ballot
would have to be open to the names of
every man for whom anyone might want
to vote. I think our Nebraska primary
law Is wrong in permitting the filing of
a name without prior consent or later
assent of the man who is to run."
Colontl John o. Yfiser: "The Tribune
is light. Tut Roosevelt's name on all
the preferential ballots In the country.
Giv the people a chance to show whom
they are for. If they waul ltsevelt.
lei them have him. If they don't want
Koosevelt. let them have any other candi
date they do want. That fair to all
candidates and It's fair to the people, too.
Do not lose sight of the fact that the
people do the voting."
A. W. Jeffirls, attorney ami nominee
for congress, said. "The people should
not be played with this way. It Koose
velt is a candidate or will even say that
he will accept a nomination, hi name
should go on the preferential ballot by
all means. But In no case, unless a man
is openly, avowedly to accept a nom
Inatlon, should his name be placed on a
ballot Any other action Is simply mak
lng a fare of th law."
