The scheduled football game be-.,
tween Washington and Jefferson and
Lee was officially declared off when
they were to meet several days ago'
because the later team refused to play
w'th Charles' West, star negro half-
back on the Red and Black team for
the last three years, and winner of
the pentathlon championship at Phila-
delphia last year.
Upon arrival of the Washington and
Le team graduate manager Richard
A. Schmiidt protested against playing'
West, declaring it was .one of the
traditions of the Southern institution
that its athletes should not compete
aga'nst a negro player. Coach John
W. Heiseman wisely declined to bar
West from the game pointing. out that.
he was a boni-fide student of Wash-
ington and Jefferson and had repre-I
sented the college for three years.
The university, reiterated again and
again as a place for broadening the
mind andincreasing the intelligence
as well as common" sense of.the stu-
dent, is here seen work ng instead
for arousing greater racial hatred.
True, there is still somewhat of that'
prejudice left in the South towards the
negro, but when Dean Harry Cam-
movbell, of the Washington and Lee
faculty, who was called by telephone,
gave the instructions that the team
should not play against a negro, the
situation approaches a point of co-
lossal folly. Surely the Washington
and Jefferson coach did his duty when
he refused to bar West.
The feeling of the North and Southl
towards the ne~gJr was taeoough y

They asked Washington and Lee to!
play an athlete, one of the highest
type of his race. :Being a college stu-
dent should surely be enough to prove
that Washington and Jefferson's
stand deserves commendation.

Series in loud authoritative voices-
Useless, flagrant oaths intermixed
with a racy idiom peculiar to the
college species-From a haze of
heavy tobacco smoke in the corner
come echoes of Mencken, La Gar-

-Somebody essays a. few chords on
the piano and then, gathering courage
from a 'few friends, bangs off into
"Dirty Hands" played with three
chords and a heavy foot on the pedal
-Much banging on the tables and
shouts of more from here and there
-The tea drinkers leave disgustedly,
presuiffably for the quiet recesses of
the boulevard where, at least, there
are no badly out-of-tune pianos-
Suddenly the door bursts open and a
howling mob from the dance upstairs
sweeps in-The fountain becomes the
center of a maelstrom 6f St8-combed

from which emerges now and then a
red-faced but triumphant one with two

In comes a handsome fellow with
the report that the people in charge
of Ferry Feld had to mov the base-
ball diamond before they could inove
the stand behind it. The reason, ac-
cording to this bird, is that if they had
moved the stand first, diamond would!

Ask Your Advisor
As you were ambling down the
diagonal yesterday a luvly woman
pointed you out to me and sez:
"He ought to use just the first half
of his name. Wot did she mean?
or Jason NOT Cowles
Whenever we receive a communica-
tion like this one, we immediately sus-
pect that it is a kick in the nose; but
this one is too deep for us. Is the first
half of our name Jason, or is it Ja, or
is it Cow? As none qf these have any
evident point except bow, and that is
not, strictly speaking, the first half of
our name, we are in a quandary.
Further, if people are now pointng us
out on the diagonal (and what place
is publicer?) we fear for. our blessed
anonymity. Yet again, when a slap
in the teeth is over one's head, one has
such a time thinking up a good snappy
rebound. Well, if it's a good one
that's over our head, we bow to the
lady; but if it's just dumb, we're not
surprised. Very few bright girls
knowsus by sight anyhow.

The Michigan Daily
Dear Sirs;

I am in possession of receipt No. 179,
dated Oct. 1, 1923for ayear's subscrip-
tion to the world's greatest college
newspaper, said receipt being about
as effective as prohibition in Ecorse.
I am still without a single issue-for

the courses would accommodate more
players. It is certainly time, however,
that the Athletic association was made,
to realize its obligation in the matter.
Golf has been recognized as a minor
sport, and teams put in competition.
It is the obvious duty of the Athletic
association or the Intramural depart-
ment to provide facilities for student
golfers.. If it is impossible at this
time to lay out a university golf :nks,
it is still possible to arr.ange through
the association for the use of private
links. . This is done in the case of
hockey, the Weinberg coliseum being
procured every winter, and also in the"
case of swimming.
Any would-be golfer who has stood
in line for two or three hours, waiting
for the opportunitf to play nine holes
before dark, will agree that some-
thing should be done at once to rem-
edy the !condition.

T, the Editor:
'I he great increase in the number
of student golfers during the -past
year, and the added restrictions placed
upon the facilities for playing gives
rise to a problem worthy of immed°ate
attention. There are three golf clubs
accessible to Ann Arbor players; the
Ann Arbor country club, Barton Hills
club, and the Washtenaw country club
near Ypsilanti. But only one of these
clubs is open to students, unless ac-
companied by a regular member. This
club, also, is closed to university men
on Saturday and Sundays. It would be
out .of the question to lay the blame
for the condition on the managements
of the golf clubs. They are all private
concerns, and under no obligation to
issue student privileges. It is not. for
non-members to say whether or not

Three weeks ago it was this same
Stengel who was considered too old

Look-Then Leap!
"Safety First" has become a national
slogan. It is painted on crowded
streets in hundreds of cities, it is
displayed on posters in street cars and
shop windows, it is displayed in hun-
dreds of prominent places in hundreds
of towns. "Safety First" has become'
a national slogan, indeed--let us hope
it does not become a rational char-
Caut'on is a good trait, but too much
caution is a positive detriment. For-
tune favors a plunger. Many of the
greatest names in finance are or have
occasionally been plungers. Of course,
the man who plunges too often and
too heedlessYy is just as apt to come
to grief as the man who stands cau-
tiously with arms akimbo. Tl~e best
advice is-Look before you leap, then
Wealth or Ability
We are inclined often to believe that
our government does things on too
lavish a scale. We are prone to feel
that public funds are thrown about
too freely for the public good, and
that Uncle Sam is notoriously over-
generous with his money-except when
it comes to dealing with our diplo-
matic service.
If this country has one thing to be
ashamed of, it is the fact that in the
selection of an ambassador to the
Court of St. James's, for example, a
problem with which President L Cool-
idge is now faced, there must be taken
into consideration the financial rating
of the man to be appointed. The
possession of wealth is one of the
really necessary qualifications. That
is wrong.' The diplomatic service
should be at least so renumerative
that talent and fitness may be the*
only factors to be considered in se-
lecting men for such important nosts.
