The following editorial appeared in
Saturday's Detroit Tribune:
"At a meeting of the litera ry faculty
held in Ann Adbor Monday might a
resolution was adopted denying to Mr.
'Hone'- tuart te privileges of the
University. Mr. Stuart is the young
halfback who played with the football
eleven last fall, despite the fact that
he was not a student regularly enroll-
ed, and had never matriculated. What
the faculty expects to gain by with-
holding the privileges of the Univer-
sity from Young Stuart is one of the
sacred mysteries. mtr. Stuart never
had any privileges at the instittion-.
He was never a student, and the fac-
ulty cannot well take away from him
something he never had.
"Foor the goodntfame of the IUliver-
siy it is necessary for the faciuty to
do something more than paiss resolu-
tions that reflect upon young Mr.
Stuart. It is impossible to believe
that Stuart went to the University of
his own accord, annexed himself to
the football team, certified that he was
at regularly matriculated student when
he knew the statement to be untrue,
all as a pleasant jest. Mr. Stuart was
an athlete whose services were in de,
imand when he was a student in an
Illinois academy. It is said that otherl
colleges were after him before he en-
tered or made a pretense of entering
the University of Michigan. It seens
to us that the faculty has done noth-
eg as yet to. renove the balot frow~
Michigan's athletic record.
"If there has been alt investigation
for the purpose of determining who
brought Stuart to Ann AArbOr, and the
details of the transaction, it has been
kept from the public. The University
faculty cannot afford to let this case
be smoothed over. WLatever is
worthy of preservation in amateur
athletics is founded upon honor, and
the slightest suspicion of professioal-
Ism demands the most searching in-
restigation. The honor of college ath-
leties must be above suspicion, too."
rThis editorial was undoubtedly Writ-
ten under a misapprehlension. The
faculty has been at work investigat-
ing the case for the past month and if
by any possible means it can be dis-
povered that Stuart was "induced"
to come here rompt ation will be
taken on the matter.

how was it done?
"The world wants a man who can
do something and when it finds one
prejudice against him vanishes."
The great negro was filled with
earnestness, and his sincerity won the
good will of the audience. His lecture
was replete with natural and homely
-wit, which caused 'frequent outbreaks
of enthusiastic applause.
