The New Dean of the Law
Departmentto be Ap-
Spointed Oct. i5.
Henry Wade Rogers, Dean of
the Law Department and Tappan
professor of law for severel years
past,is to sever his connection with
the University permanently in a
few weeks .His resignation has
been accepted and on Dec. 1 he
assumes the duties of President of
Northwestern University,of Evans-
ton, Ill. His successor has not yet
been appointed but will be named
by the Board of Regents at their
meeting Oct. 15. Various specu-
lations are being made as to who
will be selected but nothing authen-
tic can as yet be ascertained as to
what the determination of the
Board will be. Prof. Thompson
and Prof. Knowlton are now fill-
ing the vacancy temporarily. It
is remarked that one of tsose gen-
tlemen is to be given the perma-
nent appointment, while it is al-
so claimed by some with a degree
of authority that some one hereto-
fore unconnected with the U~niver-
sity is to be appointed. At all
events the position is one of high
importance and an honor to any
member of the bar fortunate
enough to receive the appoint-

Base ball has been called the
national game, but for popularity
in the Eastern colleges foot-ball
is a close second.
There are a number of minor
leagues, such as the College
league, comprising Williams, Am-
herst, Dartmouth and one or two
others of the smaller colleges, but
the game is seen at its best in the
Intercollegiate league, whereYale,
Princeton, U. of Penn. and Wes-
leyan battle for the championship.
It is to be regretted that Harvard
is not at present a member of this
league, or, in fact, of any, having
withdrawn last year at the close of
the season because Princeton per-
sisted in playing what Harvard
charged to be a "graduate" eleven.
The agitation resulting from these
charges caused such a modification
of the rules that no man who is
not regularly matriculated for the
entire year can play on any of the
elevens of the league.
But the breach between Harvard
and Princeton is not healed as yet,
and it is not probable that a game
will take place between them this
year. Harvard, Yale and Prince-
ton ire the rivals. U. of Penn.
and Wesleyan are in the league
only as foils to deaden the rivalry
of the leading three. Yale still
maintains her neutral position and
will play both Harvard and Prince-
ton. The Yale-Princeton game
will be played in New York on
Thanksgiving day, while Yale's
game with Harvard will probably
be played in Springfield, Mass.,
