FOLLOWING THE RULES
The disqualifying of Capt. Vernon Parks, just
prier to the opening of Michigan's baseball season
this year, has caused newspapers to open fire with
scorching editorials against the practice of prohi-
biting college players frota engaging in professional
baseball, and foremost among these exponents of a,
change in the rules is the Chicago Tribune.
The proposition, as set forth in the editorial col-
umns of that paper, is that the student athlete has
a perfect right to put himself through school 'by
playing professionally during the summer, and
should not be prevented from doing so by a system
which, in the eyes of the Tribune, is simply a re-
vival of the English caste idea, unworthy of Amer-
The Tribune is right. The man who plays base-
ball in college is generally better equipped to make
real money through the following of professional
ball during the summer than he is in any other
field. Professional football may be.antagonistic to
the best interests of the intercollegiate game. But
football is essentially a college sport, whereas base-
ball and other forms of athletics come under an-
other category ; and the man who goes into base-
ball for money during his vacations is thereby
not only enabled to improve his playing ability, but
can do much toward making his way financially
.much easier the following year. That the "summer
pro" college player should be excluded from the
ranks of the intercollegiate sport is unfair, especially
when his brother players, in certain colleges, can
often secure "soft" positions of one kind and an-
other connected with the school, which will largely
pay their way without much effort on their part,
the only condition being that they do their best to-
ward upholding the athletic standing of the institu-
The general attitude is, of course, somewhat di-
vided on the proposition which our ,experience this
year has brought into the foreground. Officials at
some universities are strongly in favor of contin-
uing under the present system and of completely
barring from all participation in college games
those men who have played for money during the
summer. Whether these officials may be right or
not, or whether the Tribune and other advocates
of a change in the rules are to be upheld, is now a
The fact remains, of course, that the rulings of
the Western Conference are at present directly op-
posed to the use in college athletics of "pro" play-
ers. It matters not that it is physically impossible
for an 'athletic association always to pick out every
man who has so used his vacation. There are un-
doubtedly many who are in the game even after the
weeding-out process has been carried on with the
greatest possible efficiency. Still the rules are in
existence, and since we cannot get around the facts,
only one thing is to be done, and that is absolutely
to follow the letter of the law.
But the point is that as yet they hold that college
men shall not participate in collegiate athletics if
they have formerly played for money. Let us
change the rules when the opportunity presents it-
self ; but until that time the only procedure possi-
ble, jf fairness is to be the dictator, is to stick by
the present intercollegiate laws and keep college
competitive circles free of the so-called "pro".
AS ANOTHER SEES US
Gilbert K. Chesterton has come to be the acceptd
thing even among those who have no aspirations to
be classed as intellectuals. There was a time when
the great Gilbert K. was eminently proper among
the intellectual dilettantes of both America and
England (how he would appreciate seeing that
combination of countries in that order), but those
days have passed. He is no longer merely a sub-
ject for polite conversation. People of all sorts
read him not because is it the thing to do but be-
cause they admire the man's cleverness, his men-
tal keenness and his superb egotism which falls just
short of that of Bernard Shaw.
The proof of his popularity is shown by the fact
that eminently practical American newspapers pay
him good money for his weekly column of obser-
vations on American life as contrasted with the
life and customs of his native England. An essay.
"On Dollars and Day Dreams" which recently ap-
peared showed a keen power of analysis and an
open-minded weighing of facts which is seldom en-
countered in semi-critical reviews of the manners
and customs of a foreign country.
Chesterton explodes the theory so prevalent on
the continent that Americans are solely interested
in money and the things that money will (10. He
has discerned the truth, so unintelligible to the aver-
age European, that the American imbues his work
with art and makes romance, under the guise of
business, a part of his everyday life instead of re-
serving it entirely for his vacations as the Eng-
Nevertheless, Chesterton, being English and the
product of a more leisurely, cultured society, be-
lieves that the English way is best, partly because
it satisfies his idea of the fitness of things and
partly because it gives a man an anchor to wind-
ward, in the shape of a divided interest. He points
out that no man completely loses balance so long as
part of his life remains undisturbed. Suicide, for
instance, seldom suggests itself to the business man
in England simply because he is a financial fail-
ure, whereas here failure in business frequently.
does lead people to the river.
On the whole the rising popularity of Chesterton
anng the people of America is due to the truly
remarkable ability of the man in grasping the es-
sentials of life and putting them forth in easily
comprehended terms - to that, and, we hope, to the
growing tendency of the American to interest him-
self in some things beside those purely related to

Our growing conviction that the profs are slightly
lacking in the matter of having a sense of humor
was strengthened by a little accident which befell
us in our poly sci. quiz section. The prof asked us
a certain question and being a stickler for consis,
tency we replied, "Unprepared; sir." Taking out
his little notebook he replied, "That being the case
I guess I'll have to give you a zero." With a non-
chalance that would have done credit to'a stude
waiting for an answer to his Ypsi call we replied,
"Well, that's nothing to me, sir." And what the
prof said and did then is whatconfirmed us in our
previously mentioned belief.
