The opposition to the presi dent started out to focus on th Wis consin senator for a mass play, but have evidently -been forced to the conclusion that this is not the win ning move, and, therefore, are fall ing back on the favorite son gambit to make It a Ight of the field against Tsft. It Is interesting to not that this retreat was foreshadowed several days ago by Collier's Weekly, whose lie-up of tha republican situation was that. If primary election throughout the nation were held to day Taft would get about 800 dele gates and La Follett about 200 del egates, snd that Roosevelt's refusal to countenance solicitations for him to com out In the open "If likely to result soon in the turning to soms new candidate, probably someone like Borah, or Cummins, or Clipp." - On' the democratic slds, th play has been even faster, snd more furl- ous, th assault being mad chiefly on Woodrow Wilson, who 'earned to have been pushed further to tb front than bis competitors. Whether Governor WUson has been hurt or strengthened "by tbs developments remslns to "be 'seen; but' there Is ao edisuestioa that 4hs-Maes have become muck mora sharply drawn.

The doctors are mighty nice folk tad they are entitled to good livings snd all that, and It would be wholly unbecoming to suggest a league against thera. but why not all Join hands to see it they can be kept no mor busy now during the In-and-out days of winter than they were during to persistent stretch of bitter cold. With llok Smith securely hitched to a senate seat, what's to prevent Joe Brown serving as governor of Georgia for th rest of his life? Why should it be LUthlmso's meeting, when Ik lavlta tioa Is wide open for the other fel low to pack it and captur It? Theater Ticket Scalping. A Chicago theater manager hat lea found with the temerity 'to de lend ticket scalping as clandestinely called Mayor I practiced for years by theaters there and In New York, and probably else where. He admits that bis theater turn over tickets to brokers to be scalped at advance prices and ran see It goes without saying, of coarse. I no harm in the system.

It 4 the meanest kind of discrimina tion and is prompted by no higher motive or consideration tbaa the theater man's greed for mor money thsn his legitimate ticket sale at the box office window bring him, and this greed lesds him to get this extra price by surreptitious methods, since he cannot do it openly. This Chicago manager' says the Illinois supreme court Is on record ss upholding this form of discrimina tion. That statement at least lenda a comical aspect to aa otherwise irri tating situation. It would be inter esting to hear from the court noon the subject Valuable Publicity. 6maha might scarcely estimate the value of such publicity ss has come to It as a result of th recent state teachers' convention which, was held st the Auditorium. Of especial worth 1s th editorial expression by A. E. Winshlp. a delegate to th conven tion,, aud editor of the Journal of Education of Boston. It will do no harm to republish again this com. ment: ' Omaha conies very near leading Amer ica In th matter., of patriotic decora- tlona. 8o far as our education and ex perience so, R Is absolutely the leader. la our reference to the Nebraska stats meatlna. we spoke of the matchless In pl ration of the decorations as arranfed under the direction of a committee of which alias Alios K.

They were fresh, bright bril liant flass. and they were artltklly ar ranted. It Is Impossible to give any ade quate Idea of those 40 flags.

Aad It was wholly for the Ne braska teachers. In all ways Omaha broke records in appreciation ef the teachers of the state. Such deserved prals for Omaha la th east, where it needs appreciation of Its western enterprise is most valu able. But th benefit of the publicity Is quite general la Its acop. ' We think Omaha and Nebraska people will thoroughly agree with this and aot overlook alt It mesne tp have their metropolis thus spoken of abroad, particularly In so representa tive aa orgaa aa tha Journal of Edu eatloa. It was not ao much what Omsha did, as that It did something so wsll to msk this klad of an lm prsstlon. ' ' . .'

Doe It aot all emphasis ths valu of be ing a convention city and being a democratic and kospltsbl city and also of th aecesalty of kavlng aa Auditorium for tb entertainment of such gatherings? This it a kind ef publicity w could not buy or acqutr any other way tbaa th way w ac quired this.

Effctt'ot Collep Athletics.' Th recent arraignment at tht strenuous training for athletic at tb Annapolis Naval academy by Surgeon-General Stoke of tb navy might well serve to direct inquiry Into tb training at other Institu tions. He says tb coaches at th Naval academy put . their me through entirely too sever course of preparation and that this uo natural development, lnetad of giv ing strength snd endurance la later years, often leads to organic weak. net sea, unfltttlnf th mea for effec tive service In th navy or other spheres of life. His observations are entitled to th most serious respect. If this is true of the Annapolis coaches, ia it also tros of coaches at other colleges and universities? College athletic are aot to be done away with. Dr. Stokes doe aot favor that. But so excellent aa agency for the develop ment and disciplining of young msa hood should not be debased Into a means of positive Injury. Better let up on tb system of training a little and even lose contest or two. If thst be necessary, tbaa to overtrain aad overexert the - physical powers while they ar yet la the formative stage.

President Taft j one msa or others may say about loosu op setae big. strong man who .theater ticket scalping, tb thester- tlcket'but not aa great aa he waa before. However that ma; be, it ha aa ele- d 1 victory tour years ago, aad Is entitled to ask th adoraemU s re-election as much a any president who hss occupied tb Whit House slaea Liacola. - r Until it was proved oa them aone : ment of mighty sound sense in it of the theater managers admitted the! which serves to point the dsnger of charge, much let defended it Of young men overtraining. What col. lege athletics ar really for is to help make young mea efficient in after life, aot so much to pound them Into machines for the winning of tierce physical contests during their college days. Victory of that sort is well bat aa evenly train, body, helped goes will continue to believe it is wrong. K diters from railroad ticket scalping, which has beea put instead of impaired by the course of out of business, ia that the theater training, is fsr mor important scalper raises ths price of th ticket ! Whst difference will It make tea or twenty years bene whether th navy beat the army, or vice versa? It will be Interesting to see whst effect Surgeon-General Stokes' criti cism baa, both at Annapolis , snd other colleges and universities, with professional coaches, some of whom seem to forget that a college student hss mor thsn four years' of strug gle, to forget that his career on the campus is only to at htm for larger contest afterward.
