When an organization of Chicago'
Conference Alumni went on record
Saturday as opposed to the tendency to
commercialize college athletics, more
than one heart beat in sympathy. And
more than one heart, torn by the de-
mands of this go-getting stadium age,
found spiritual refreshment in their
calm denunciation of the present ten-j
dencles in college athletics.
For one thing, their statements in-
dicated something which most stu-
dents, in their relations with the "old
boys" returning for the big game, are
seldom liable to appreciate: namely,
that alumni do not exist chiefly to
come back and cheer the team to vic-
toiy; that they are now men of sense,
for the most part, and can see the fol-
lies as well as the advantages of our'
much over-stressed athletic activities.
Their manifesto said in part: "We
feel that there is a vicious tendency
i' football. We refer to the impor-
tance given to the amount of the
'gate.' There is no denying that this
is to some extent responsible for ex-
isting football schedules, and the fact
that football supports other sports is
no justification for it. This tendency
is deplorable."
Their words are interesting chief-
ly in that they kick the teeth out of
the football zealot's supreme argu-
ment. The football zealot, when se-
duced into discussion with one who
can see some purposetin a university
other than to have the largest and
coldest and most wind-swept and most
unalterably solid stadium in the
world, is apt to say: "But it's a great
thing for the university! Advertises
it, you know! Makes the rich alumni
kick through new museums and
things! It SELLS the university to
the alumni!"
The action of this Chicago group
shows rather conclusively that alumni
don't want the university sold to them,
if it means prostituting the athletes
in return. Instead of being sold on
their Almae Matres, they seem to see
the very means by which the sale was
to be effected as a malignant growth
on the firm flesh of education, and
one which should be removed by the
nearest doctor.
For the first time in the 1,000 years
of its turbulent existence, the German
nation Sunday voted for a president.
Unfortunately, the thirty million or
more men and women with their new-
ly vested power of the ballot were un-

exterior has its origin in the strong
desire to be admired by others-
primarily by the opposite sex--to be
recognized by them as especially well-
shaped, handsome, youthful, or rich
and powerful. Does Mr. Johnson find
that the wearing of wing collars en-
hances his attraction for the opposite;
sex? If he does he is running di-I

Brummel or the Due Du Barry never

wore wing collars; even today Leo
Ditrichstein, Lowell Sherman, Ramon
Navarro and Rudolph Valentino sel-
dom if ever wear wing collars in the
morning. As a matter of fact I don't
wear them myself.
Perhaps, as the other alternative,
Mr. Johnson appears among us as an
innovator of a new and more beautiful
style of dressing, in short, as a kind
of saratorial messiah. But surely he
does not believe that the universal
wearing of wing collars would add to
the beauties of the campus as one1
saunters to a nine o'clock? Think ofj
the humiliation such a fad would bringj
to those who are cursed with a promi-
nent and unstable Adam's apple. Let
us have innovations in style, but none
such as this.
Aside from these two possibilities, I
can conceive of no sensible motive for
Mr. Johnson's masquerade in the wing
collar. Without any such justification
in principle or purpose, his non-con-
formity in dress becomes absurd to
normal minds, and the laughing ridi-
cule he received quite well deserved.
His, case is similar to that of a campus
professor, whom, to hide his identity
completely, I will call Henley., Now
Henley is a purposeless non-conform-
ist in the matter of speech, just as
Johnson is in the matter of dress.
365 1-4 days out of the year Henley

ley, the author continues: "Here you
may discover the secret of greatness,
which is, first, to be born great, un-
fortunately a difficult and often im-
possible task; and second, to possess
the instinct of self-education. You will
thid that everyone of these masters
while more or less influenced by their
tutors and governors was led by a,
sort of internal, instinctive feeling
that they must do certain things and
learn certain things. They may fight
the battle royal with parents, teach-
ers, and professors,......but without
exception from a very early age they
do their own thinking and revolt
against having it done for them, and
they seek their own mode of learn-
I conclude by citing the advice to
students by D'Arcy W. Thompson, as!
found in "Day Dreams of a School-
master": "In, your college lecture-
room ,"advises Thompson, "listen with
respectful attention to what is said;
but abstain from taking notes. Half
of what you hear were better forgot-
ten, with much of the remainder you
will probably disagree: what residue
is worth remembering will be remem-
bered for its singularity."
A student who has not been trained
in the art of thinking for himself-
unless he is a born genius-will never
become original. And as long as we
lack originality, we cannot have a
great literature or great art. Origi-
