DR. SMALL OBJECTS.
Dr. A. W. Small, Conference rep-
resentative of the University of Chi-
cago and generally considered as the
faculty man there who is closest to
athletics, has come out strongly
against the activits of the western
dailies in behalf of Michigan's return
to the Conference. In Wednesday's is-
sue of the Chicago Tribune, Dr. Small
makes the following statements:
"These college paper editors know
nothing at all about the real situation.
They are merely raising dust that
will probably hinder Michigan's re-
turn and their efforts should cease at
once. These editors are clamoring
without reason and without effect, un-
less it be a deleterious effect."
These alarming and startling state-
ments, coming from a Conference man
who has for seven years quibbled over
minor matters, rather lends a bit of
humor to the controversy. But clear-
ly asida from the humorous end of it,
the statements mark an epoch, show
that the cries of the alumni and the
student bodies of great western uni-
versities are displeasing to such Con-
ference heads. It shows that such
Conference heads who have talked and
talked for seven years do not like the
idea of publishing the facts. And
above all it points out that the cam-
paign of the dailies is bearing fruit.
Why does Dr. Small want the pub-
licity ceased? Why should not the
thousands upon thousands of alumni
and students know the facts? Why
should not those who are most inter-
ested have a voice in the matter? The
editors who met at Chicago last week
do know the facts. They do know the
conditions as they exist in Michigan
and in every Conference school, know
it well, through the eyes of the teams,
coaches, students, and alumni. They
know full well the absurdity of the
secret atmosphere that surrounds the
Conference board. They know that
the questions are not the complex and
perplexing ones that these Confer-
ence heads would have the laymen be-
lieve. They know that faculty con-
trol is not the only question and they
know that the training table is the
real issue. In the spirit of friendly
rivalry, of common interests, these ed-
itors opened the facts, tore off the
lid, and intend to give to the students
and alumni the real meat. Why does
Dr. Small want the facts suppressed?
Is the united voice of the alumni
and students displeasing to Dr. Small?
Does the desire of the students of
Chicago, Illinois, and the other schools
to have Michigan return interfere
with the plans of Dr. Small? Or does
the pleading of the student interrupt
the deep thought that he is spending
on the matter. In his statement Dr.
Small takes great care to say that the
campaign is without effect. Can Dr.
Small explain why it is without effect?
Does he openly admit that the Confer-
ence heads pay absolutely no atten-
tion to the united desire of their stu-
dents and graduates? Does he place
above the opinions of thousands, who
are learning the facts, the opinion of
nine men who have hidden the facts?
If the campaign has had the effect to
disturb Dr. Small why does he prac-
tically say he will pay no attention to
it? This in itself is but an incident
common to the Conference. It is an
acknowledgment that twenty-five
thousand students and hundreds of
thousands of alumni are absolutely
ignored. Dr. Small is to be commend-
ed for his frankness.
He also states that the editors are
clamoring without reasoning. But it
is evident that Dr. Small overlooks
the fact that the views expressed by
the editors are not their sole property
but the views of practically all the
students and alumni. What an enor-
mous number of unreasonable people
the western universities have produc-
ed. These students and alumni are
learning the facts through publicity
and are reasoning, and it is evident
that they don't need seven years to
come to a conclusion. We may bow be-
fore the superior reasoning powers of
Dr. Small and like associates but if
we do bow we ask for progress. Rea-
son is scarce if it takes seven years
Dr. Small asserts that this cam-
paign should cease at once. Why
does Dr. Small want the matter to
hang fire? Why does he want the facts
suppressed? We believe the students
and alumni should know the facts.
We believe they should know all the
facts. And we cannot be restrained
by what the Conference heads choose
to dole out. Michigan does not act in
the dark. It wants the light of pub-
licity to show up the real issues and
disclose the real conditions. And we
believe that the students in five other
western universities want to know
the facts. King Canute once tried to
stop the tides, Dr. Small is about to
present a similar skit. But the tide
of student opinion and alumni opinion
is going to have effect and the facts
are going to be known despite the ap-
peal to darkness.
We admire Dr. Small for making
clear his attitude. We thank him for
his admission that students and alum-
ni do not count in the least. We grant
