ersity, and who has been reading
certain nvspapers the past few 'daysf
would imagine that the student body I
as well as the alumni were greatly
agitated about the kind of opera the
LUion is producing.' "Union Opera
Stirs Campus", says one headline,
while another reads "Students and
Pacul*~y Split Over Leg Show".A
few scattered alumni make' a few
comments to the effect that they
would like to see more "virility" in
the show, and profess to be shocked
by some, of the advertising matter
sent out.
7'the feeble efforts of some news-
papers to try to work up a con trover-
sy is ludicrous and fairly simple mind-
ed, The Senate Committee on Stu-
dent Affairs frowned on the sub-title,
but'did not mention a wod about the
character ' of the show. TWhat i, ab-
solutely the only action thathas been
taken officially. The vast numbers
of students and alumni fail to get at
all excited about the untter. They
continue buying tickets to the show,
and indications are that the opera
this year will play to record breaking
,attendances. The lower floor and box
seats of the 'Metropolitan opera house
in New York have been sold out three
weeks before the show -is scheduled
to play there.
The Unioni opera s as'clean a show
as is produced anywhere and it is a
credit 'to the. University. One of its

The plot cannot always be local, for
[no good local plots have been written
in several years. Furthermore, In or-
der to carry an appeal to thousands
of ticket buyers in the ,larger cities
where the show plays, =material of
general interest must be used. Alum-

(The New York Times)
1Dr. Stewart Paton of Princeton
thinks that football. is getting 'too
much attention. 'Princeton men are
justified in a feeling of the sort, bt
it may be' doubted if the theciry will'
'win convrerts at New Haven this year.
Next year is another ,matter.
Yet Abere s a good-dal in Dr. .,Pa
ton's theory. For large numbers of'
students -and alumni 'in most of the
colleges in the tnted States - last
°Saturday 'was;' temporarly, tne ''endj
of the wrld, ad nothing worth balk "
I ing- 4bout' will happen; before next 111
September. A good. par ; of the n-
tervening period will be spent in
thinking about the next football -sea-
son, except in those parts of the coun-
itry where basketball in it turn is an
epidemic frm of insanity. Dr. Paton
likes football, but 'he thinks that on
the present scale it has become a
great industry beyond the powers of
i the undergraduates who should na-
turally handle It, and that it must iu-
f evitably fall into the hands of older'
men who use the undergraduate more
or less as tools~ of the trade. That
'Is an objecton~of some force, but Dr.
Paton seems to ,subordnate it to the
'Imore serious complaint that football
.permanently warps the judgment oft
the average college man,
I' For four impressionable years, the
student is taught~ that glory or shme,
eternal.disgrace. or dazzling triumph,
depends9 on what 'happens on :the suc-
cessive Saturydays of Autumn, and par-;
ticuliarly1o'n the last Saturday before'
Thanksgiving. nless .le is lucky, he
[inds ift "impossible to readjust his
thpught ,processes" after he has left
l college, and remains permanently "at
the football level". This needs no ar-.
gument In view of the notorious fact
that alumni are more responsible for .
excesses of the athletic spirit thanE
are undergraduates.
What are we going'to do about it?
The people of this Union are always
t oingr to excess about something o

From the file of the U. of M. Dasily,l
N' ov. 29, 1898.
At a meeting of the American Eco-
nomic issociation held at Cleveland
last December, a committee of five
was appointed to report on thel subjeict
of monetary reform in the United'
States. Prof. F. M. Taylor of this
University, is .chairman of the com-
mittee,. and he other members are l
Prof s. F. 'W.' Tans sig. of Harvard,
Sydney Sherwood of. Johns Hopkins,
J. 11. Jenks of Cornell, and David
Kinley of Illinois. The committee will
submit its report at the' next meeting
of the association at New Haven, Dec.
28. The report of 4,000 words will not
present a specific reform, but will
affirm the need of reform and indicate
the general lines along which reform
shiould proceed. ,
