Students Given Choice
The plan that seems to meet the
most favor with the students Is that
one whereby they will be given their
choice of tickets to, two games. It
seems to be concensus of opinion
among the members of the Board in
Control of Athletics that if this plan
was adopted, the non-transferable
ticket rule should be discontinued for
the basketball season. This -would
mean that if any student had a ticket
for a game and if he could not attend,
he might give it to some other stu-

Dlsusse Slogan
The campaign now conducted by or
througli the Daily, and such other
agencies as are available, has a fun-
damental idea on which rest all iti
suggestions for specific action. The
idea is that any one who supports
-thletics, and in particular advances
our prospects of football success, is
g serving the University. "Be of serv-
t ice" is the slogan of the campaign.
? Now this fundamental dogiha invites a
more cateful scrutniy than it has ever
e received; for if it be untenable the
