cessful season not to be desired 'by an enterprising
university? Can the new respect and admiration for
Center college, which stepped so triumphantly from
oblivion into athletic supremacy, be completely ig-
nored? Surely'the brilliant showing of this dimin-
utive college signifies more than a stroke of luck.
No indeed.-The fact that a university does
achieve the "honor and glory" of athletic success
is, in itself, generally sufficient proof of the spirit
of service and loyalty to fully justify it. Even though
Professor Sleator challenges this spirit of obligation
to one's alma mater, he must admit there. is no
greater justification of the fidelity to friends, coun-
try, or religion.

. A MENTAL CRUTCH
Too many students use their notebooks as a men-
tal crutch. Instruction in some classes has come
to mean an attentive' ear and a freely flowing foun-
tain pen rather than a careful consideration and
weighing of the facts and theories presented. It is
' so easy to become a sort of stenographer and to
translate ideas into words into a notebook without
thought. Then when examination time comes, a
few hours cramming place them into the mind long
enough that they may again be transcribed into a
quiz book and then straightway forgotten.
To get the real value out of a lecture or class
discussion is to listen with the mind as well as with
the ear, examining and concluding, and writing into
the notebook just enough to start the same process of
thinking again when the mind is confronted with
the notations taken. The best notebooki is merely
a shorthand report of what has been recorded in
the mind.-The Daily Kansan.
