strong western rivals, as does Minne-
sota: Michigan will welcome the day
when she can meet the strongest, west
as well as east, in all branches of
sport. At present this is impossible.
When Minnesota joins us one bar will
have been lowered; one of our old time
rivals will be ready to meet us under
sane rulings and reasonable condi-
tions. The boycott against Michigan
will have been broken. We hope that
Minnesota will .take the step. We be-
lieve that she is ready to. We trust
that it will be the opening step in a
movement that will bring about con-
ditions under wlich clean, honorable
sportsmanship may flourish in the west
with each team of reputation ready
to meet' the other unhampered by prej-
udice or jealousy.

A communication to which we give
publicity in our news columns, is of es-
pecial interest in that it shows how
much may be read into and added onto
an editorial such as we published
Tuesday morning. We dislike to find it
necessary to again state our position
but to lend the emphasis of repetition
may not be amiss.
The article in the Philadelphia En-
quirer did not resurrect buried issues.
It took a starting instance to point
what it baldly stated to be present con-
ditions. The Schultz incident is an
example not an issue. It is the kind
of football our opponents are playing
and expect to play that interests us,
not what happened to Schultz in 1908.
When gossip that has continued for
years assumes so bald a statement as
that of the quotation in question we
feel that it is an occasion for a school
to state its position and deny any such
attitude. This we trust Pennsylvania
We accused Pennsylvania of nothing.
Having quoted and commented on a
statement, insulting in its flagrancy,
in which we expressed no belief, we
took the occasion to preach a sermon
with this as a text. "Even though
this statement is without basis" we
remarked and passed on to generali-
ties. We chose to emphasize our opin-
ion of the importance of cleanliness
in our opponents as well as in our-
selves. We have felt that in selecting
oir contests we think too much of the
gate receipts and the spectacle and not .
enough of the underlying spirit. It was
this general question in regard to all
athletic contests at every time that
we desired to call attention.
Our attitude toward the Conference
is not involved, whatever Mr. David's
suspicions of our machinations in this
regard may be. As to the cleanliness
of our editorial policy we expect to
answer to the student body as a whole
and would be happy to answer to our

It is with the liveliest pleasure that
we learn that our friends the Gophers
are planning to again do us the honor
of meeting us in the field of intercolle-
giate sport. They have found, what
Michigan discovered several years ago,
that the Western Conference, as at
present organized and conducted, is
intolerable. They show every indi-
cation of an unwavering determination
to resume athletic relations that 'prov-
ed highly desirable from both a Min-
nesota and a Michigan standpoint.
Happy we will be to met the Gophers"
on the gridiron, on the diamond, and
on the track. When the Gopher meets
the Wolverine a contest results that is
worth while, and satisfying from ev-
ery point of view.
Healthy athletic development, for a
strong school with strong teams and a
spirit of independence, seems truly
impossible under such rules and regu-
lations as are now in force in the "Big
Eight." Michigan wants to meet her3
