A dispatch from Rockford, Ill., tells
of the death of Harry Faris Forbes,
'84, on his return Sunday night from
the Pennsylvania game. He. left Ann
Arbor Sunday morning seemingly in
the best of health, and the report that
his death was due to undue excitementf
at the game is without foundation.
Mr. Forbes was a member of the
Zeta Psi fraternity and one of the
prominent men of his class in the uni-
versity. He was the head of the Rock-
ford Malleable Iron Co., and also pres-
ident of the People's Bank and Trust
Company of Rockford.

PRACTVICE WILL END TODAY.
The usual secret practice at Ferry
Field was the order yesterday after-
noon, but there was a little diversity
in the matter of scrimmage. Despite
the lateness of the season the drill
was a long and tedious one, and the
lights had been burning for some time
before the order was given out to quit
for the day. The hard practices lend
color to the opinion that Nebraska is
going to be a harder proposition than
some people expect, and Yost is fully
aware of that fact. Those Cornhuskers
are about the best team in the west-
ern part of the big valley, and it is not
going to be a walkaway for Michigan
to take their measure.
All the regulars were in the scrim-
mage with the exception of Pontius and
Wells. The All American man is still
hobbling about on crutches but shows
improvement, and expects to get into
the battle next Saturday. There is a
little matter of sentiment that demands
that Stan be in that game. The big
half started his football career in that
part of the country and if possible he'
wants to end it there. So it's a safe
bet that if it is at all possible he will'
be in the lineup. The continued ab-
sence of Pontius from scrimmage,
seems to indicate that he is not yet in
"This country is being run by a coterie
of petty grafters who have never earn-
ed an honest dollar in their lives,"
said T. W. Craig, a mmebers of the
Payne-Webber Co., Stock Brokers, of
Detroit, in an address delivered before
the Commerce Club last night. Mr.
Craig is a firm believer in the principle:
of reciprocity. He also said that the
only way in which we will be able to
get enough wheat for our cons'umption
in the future is to aid in the develop-
ment of the Canadian Northwest.

This is the press agent's advance up.
But it is hardly customary either in
a court of law or of public opinion to
ask a man or a school to "take the
stand" because a newspaper writer
publishes an accusation concerning a
thing of three years' standing. It may
be well to "consider our guests before
we invite them," but it is not quite us-
ual, according to the canons of ordi-
nary hospitality, to demand of our in-
vited guests that they answer the
charges of gossip,
If behind its half veiled accusations'
and its insinuations, the Daily has any
real and honest purpose, let it say so.
If it has proofs of dlirty playing by
Penn in recent games, why not show
them? If it believes that our rela-
tions with Penn are not advantageous,"
that our place is back in the Western
Conference, why not say so frankly?
To most of us, it is as vital, that the
written expression of college opinion
(of which it is generally presumed the
Daily is the organ) should be as clean
and open as our varsity athletics.
