WHY A CONFERENCE?
You ask why a Conference at all?
The east does not need one?
But the west does, and Michigan is
in the west. The west tried up until
1906 to get along without a Confer-
ence. The west failed, every president
in the west agreed, including Presi-
dent Angell, that a Conference was
necessary to western college sports.
The Conference was thus formed.
But the east? The east does not
need a Conference because it has "tra-
ditions" that have been handed down
for years as to what is right and
proper in athletics. These traditions
have been sufficient in the east.
We tried the eastern scheme up .un-
til 1906. We failed.
Can Michigan have Yost and go
back into the Conference? We sayr
Why? Because Coach Yost was em-
ployed first by Michigan when the fac-
ulty was in control. Coach Yost wasi
retained for eight years, until 1908,f
under faculty control.
But jealousy arising out of his sala-t
ry? Minnesota pays Coach Williamsc
and Chicago pays Coach Stagg, ast
large, if not larger salaries, , thanl
Coach Yost is getting. These men arec
appointed upon the recommendationr
Editor, Michigan Daily:-
The little "boxed" notice which
graced the upper right-hand corner
of the Tuesday edition of The Michigan
Daily encourages me to contribute to
the general melee in which pro- and
anti-conference men are engaged. Tak-
ing for granted that Michigan does
actually stand opposed to eleven uni-
versities in this difficulty, it must be
remembered that it stands opposed to
them only in its athletic policy. No
one will deny that the athletic policy
of a university should be adapted to its
general policy if athletic activities are
not to detract from the effectiveness
of the university at large. If we re-
enter the Conference and confess.opr
sins, real or imagined, we openly
avow that the west and not the east
is our proper sphere. An attempt to
compromise with both will only result
in dissipation of energy.
No one will deny that Michigan is
"growing into" the east rather than
into the west. The number of students
from the east is constantly increasing
and more rapidly than the percentage
from the west. The records at the
office of the general alumni associa-
tion and at the university offices will
bear out this statement. The hun-
dreds of alumni which the university
is pouring into the east are all fight-

To be sure, the scrubs managed to
squeeze over a touchdown during the
