was to be played on the home field of
the opponent. Michigan won out that
year! Why? Because the University
of, Michigan Daily and the student
body poured no fire into the rear of
their own side. The present contro-
versy, would have been settled long
ago if Stagg and his co-laborers had
not felt from the disaffection in the
Michigan camp that we would be forc-
ed to accept their terms in the long
At another time when the affairs
were in their infancy in the Western
Conference, Mr. Stagg proposed that
all admissions should be limited to
fifty cents. In the case of Michigan, it
has been possible to build up Ferry
field because its friends were willing
to pay from one to two dollars per
ticket to W-elp the cause along. It has
been no hardship to thousands of its
friends and the result has been a
splendid" athletic stadium with facili-
ties probably not equaled by any other
college in this country. I Mr.
Staggs case sundry millionaires fur-
nished what was required and, of
course, it .has been long understood
that when there was a deficit at the end
of the year, Mr. John D. Rockefeller
kindly sent up a check to make up the
deficit. Where would Michigan have
been under that arrangement? Cer-
tainly without its present magnificent
field, and not one of the men who has
helped in developing the field is in
favor of a return to the Conference,
except with honor.
Again, one of the present obstacles
to returning is the fact that Michigan
is likely to be prevented from playing
outside of the Conference. We are
nearer to Pennsylvania than we are
to Minnesota. We played Cornell be-
fore Chicago University was organiz-
ed. Why should te cast off our old
friends? When this proposition is
analyzed it is the mest outrageous one
that has been conceived by the Con-
ference leaders, and how any Michigan
man will agree to lie down and be run
over in this fashion is a thing hard to
understand. Were the present influ-
ences at work in the time when Stagg
made his first proposition, we would
now be playing all games on Marshall
field at Chicago and taking 20 per cent
of the gate receipts for our share.
It is objected that we are going to
the east. Well, take down your Uni-
versity calendar and note where your
students come from. Next to Michigan
and Ohio comes New York State, with
nearly 400, close behind comes Penn-
sylvania with 262. New York has
over 9,000,000 population; Pennsylva-
nia more than 8,000,000. These two
states have a population nearly equal
to the whole territory west of the Mis-
sissippi river. Why should we not
The largest cash gift to the uni-
versity was one of $160,000 by a lady
from New York State. It is under-
stood that the gift of a woman's dor-
mitory, to cost probably $200,000, to
be erected soon, is a gift by a citizen
of New York City. The Students
Christian Association is presently to

build a new building. The first gift
toward it was a check for $10,000 by a
merchant in New York City. Not mere-
ly is the population greater in the
east; but the wealth lies in the east.
Why should we not go that way?
We deprecate deeply the position
of the University of Michigan Daily,
which just now is forming student
public opinion. This is most unfortu-
nate since it is based on no knowledge
of the actual facts. The writer be-
lieves that the policy of the U. of M.
Daily as at present conducted is per-
icious in divers ways, not merely
with regard to athletics. We have not
the honor of the acquaintance of Judge
Murfin, but we know he has toiled in
season and out, for the good of Mich-
igan athletics, and it seems a burning
shame that any one connected with
any activity of the University of Mich-
igan should be willing to neutralize
and render ineffective his good work
by selling out his Alma Mater for a
mess of pottage.

In the past these rules were on the
books. They were regarded as mis-
takes and they were wiped off the
books. Would it be natural or logical
for the Conference universities to re-
enact legislation that already has
been admitted to be wrong? Would
you as a rational human being delib-
erately repeat a mistake?
Of course the Conference might do
this. And of course the world might
come to an end today.
THE CONFERENCE REPRESENTA-
What kind of men do you think are
in control of the Conference?
Men with brains, men with an acute
sense of honor. Not athletic experts
always, but men who are intensely in-
terested in amateur college sports.
A good cirtic does not necessarily
have to be a great writer, a great mu-
sician, a great actor or a great foot-
Honesty, brains, and keen enthusi-
asm and appreciation are absolutely
necessary to the critic, however. He
must appreciate technique, but he need
not be able to perform perfectly him-
The Conference representatives are
critics. They are men who stand high
in the educational centers of the west.
They are appointed to regulate the
western college sports, not to abolish
them. Regulation is anything but abo-
lition. Regulation is a tonic.
Are these men, big in every other
walk of life, but small and petty in
their relation to college sports? Are
not their reputations and honors at
stake? The entire west is watching
every move they make. Can they af-
ford to be mean?
That is why we say that Michigan
has not been legislated against and
why she will not be legislated against
in the future. We trust these men.
