In the face of a somewhat concerted. attempt on
the part of American universities to discourage pro-
fessionalisni in athletics, a consideration of one an-
gle of the situation is not untimely. Professional
baseball and track, on the ground of their non-col-
legiate origin, might deserve to escape the shafts
aimed by the collegians. And, conversely, profes-
sional football is liable to criticism in that it is the
offspring of the collegiate game.
Football, until very recent times, has never held
a place ii' the professional field. It was born in and
developed by the colleges and preparatory schools
and through them it has attained a' populariey which
attracts the eye of the professional promoter. The
analogy of the father's determining the future of
his child might be applied to the college's attitude
toward, the prof essionalizing of football.
Of course, the college is necessarily prompted by
motives of self when it seeks to discourage profes-
sional football. The games each year bring a sub-
stantial revenue and a monopoly of the sport itself.
is a matter of considerable pecuniary importance. If
professional football attained a widespread popu-
latity it would be at the expense of the collegiate
game. Compare the attendance at football games
with that at baseball games. The former draws wit-
nesses from all over a state; but the latter is im-
potent against professional competition.
When one considers the origin of football and the
result, which its professionalizing may have upon
the institutions which gave it birth, the attitude of
the colleges finds a justification.
At this time of the year there is scarcely any one
who is not suffering from a complication of small
debts, mostly owed for various campus dues and
fees. In the same way, the innumerable class organ-
izations, clubs, and societies, are carrying along
many annoying, unpaid accounts. Under; ordinapy
circumstances ,the telephone wires and the mails
from now until June would be made to work over
time in settlement of these obligations, entailing a
lot of lost energy and effort.
Hillsdale college, though faced with ,a much
smaller problem than exists at Michigan, has voted
to set aside one, specific' date upon which all cam-
nus dues, fees and othertobligations are to be paid.
This is' to become their traditional "Pay-Uip Day."
Perhaps Michigan might well follow this prece-
dent and proclaim -a date upon which Michigan
students should settle up the many and various
sums which they owe here and there through their
participation in campus activities. Both students'
and organizations would profit by such an arrange-
ment and their appreciation would bring to the plan

David D. Nash, '20, recording secre-

Fairbanks is undoubtedly the clever-

Otto P. Dallavo, 123, captain of the

Of all the tragedies that can befall man none is
so' dreaded,.none so sinister in its terrible possibil-
ities as an accident at sea. Like wildfire the news
spread that something was amiss with the great
steamer.' People could be seen rushing madly to
and fro on the upper deck.
A mant, thinly clad, rushed up to the captain. His
face was almost livid with that brand of fear which
only the near'presence of death can bring. "Cap-
tain," he muttered,' "have we floundered?" The cap-
tain, a grizzled veteran of many years, looked, al-
most pityingly at this creature who was in the clutch
of an uncontrollable fear. "No, we haven't floun-
dered, but be calm and be prepared for the worst,"
he said in a serious, alnost doleful tone.
By this time the man's voice had become a veri-
table shriek of frenzy. "Don't tell me we are go-.
ing down. Where are the life preservers?" The
captain shook his head sorrowfully. "Life pre-
servers would be of no service at this time, he
said. "You mean it's too late," quavered the man,
the look of madness in his eyes graduelly changing
to resignation as he realized that he was beyond
earthlyhelp. The captain turned his'read amo-
Inent as though to gain control of his emotions.
When he spoke again it was in that same lifeless,
dolorous tone. "Yes," he answered heavily, "we've"
done all we can for you. From now on you'll have
to look out for yourself since we are at present tied
up to the dock." J. W. K.
