Although there are many societies
and organizations of various kinds at
this University, covering nearly every
phase of college life, yet there is one
field of action which is as yet un-
occupied and the Daily wishes to take
the initiative in starting a movement
to remedy this deficiency. Therefore,
it is suggested that steps be taken at
once towards the formation of a Soci-
ety for the Prevention of Profanity.
Such a society would have boundless
opportunities before it.
It would seem that the best way
to bring about this much needed re-
form would be to strike at the very
root of the evil and seek to do away
with the cause of profanity, to make
college life so pleasant and agreeable
that there will be no occasion for
"cuss-words" and they will become a
thing of the past.
h'erhaps the most obviously needed
reform and one which would do won-
ders towards accomplishing the end
in view is the abolition of eight
o'clocks. Nothing is so trying on the
temper of the average student as to
be compelled to tumble hastily out of
bed at an unseemly hour in the morn-
ing, rush to his boarding house, gulp
down a cup of coffee and then run all
the way to 'the class where, only half
awake, he makes a "dead flunk."
The library offers a fine opportu.
nity for the proposed society. There
are many persons of undoubted moral
integrity who have been heard to use
violent language after half or three-
quarters of an hour of standing before
the delivery desk waiting for an op-
portunity to give their slip to the one
lonely attendant vainly trying to serve
Perhaps it would not be beneath
the dignity of this society to visit the
gymnasium and see if some method
could not be provided to regulate the
shower baths. More than one student
has been driven to swearing by hav-
ing the water, without an instant's
warning, become icy cold or boiling
These are only a few of the needed
reforms which are most apparent. A
host of others will occur to the mem-
bers of the society when it is organ-
ized; in fact, the possibilities before
it are unlimited. It is to be hoped
that every student will take a per-
sonal interest in the matter, and help

up by Professor Stagg at the Univer-
sity of Chicago, and must be signed
by all the athletes who take rooms in

"Upon the consideration of being
allowed the privilege of rooming in
the training quarters in Hitchcock

Second-During my stay in the
training quarters, even during those
periods when the teams are not in
training, I agree not to use tobacco in
my room nor anywhere in the build-
ing, nor permit it to be used in the
room, and I will do all I can to pre-
vent its being used by visitors in the
Third-I agree not to indulge in
any gambling in training quarters and
will not permit any gambling to take
place in my room.
Fourth-"I agree hot to bring in
nor use any liquors in my room nor

them to be used in my room.
"Fifth-As a member of the train-
