SPORTY AMERICA
More than eighty thousand people
from all over the country are expect-
ed to be present when the fifty-first
annual Derby opens at Churchill
Downs, Kentucky, this afternoon.
I These poeple are, as an aggregate,
traveling thousands of miles for this
event. They are leaving eighty
thousand businesses, and homes, and
families, to watch a score of horses
race around an oval track..
It is a great sport, in fact, it has
been called the sport of kings, but is
this sport of horse racing, or any
other sport, worthy of such great
emphasis? Is there any reason why
attendance at these events should al-1
most be a prerequisite to "being
somebody?"
This condition is not, of course,
confined to the United States, but it
Is more emphatic here. The differ-
ence between this and other coun-
tries is that commercial America does
not take her sport as an hour of play,
but tends to elevate It to a place of
major importance.
LORD ALFRED MILNER
This week marked the passing of a
great statesman, a great war min-
ister, a great colonial organizer,-
Lord Alfred Viscount Milner, min-
ister of war in the cabinet of David
Lloyd George during the closing year
of the World War. But it is not.
chiefly because he was a statesman,
not because he was a master of or-
ganization, that we pay tribute to
Lord Milner. It is because he was
a self-made man.
There is something about the
phrase "self-made man" that com-
mands respect, and especially so when
it is applied to a country such as
England, where to be self-made po-
litically means, and meant even more
co a score of years ago, breaking
through that closedy knit ring of
aristocracy that has surrounded the
governmental machinery for cen-
turies.
Alfred Milner was born a common-
er; he died a peer of England and a
knight of the most exalted Order of
the Garter. Though the son of Eng-
lish parents, he was born in Germany,
which fact alone proved a great ob-
stacle in his early attempts in poli-
ties; he died leaving a great respect
for the Teutonic organization which
he brought to the English cabinet.
We may not agree with Lord Mil-
ner's policies or methods, but we can-
not help but respect a man who
'without assihtante climbed the entire
length of one of the steepest ladders
in the world.
Shirt sleeve weather comes and
goes, but rolled hose seem to be with
us forever.

AMY LOWELL
By Edwin Francis Edgett
-The Boston Evening Transcript.
As a personality in American
literature, perhaps in the world li-
terature of the present moment, Amy,
Lowell was unique. As a poet she
was a conspicuous figure not merely
because of what she wrote, but also
because of what she was. Although
of New England birth, there was lit-
tle of New England in herself or in
her work. All her predecessors had
begun their literary life early and
were famous almost in the days of
their youth. She began late, and she
was well along towards middle life
before her name became known. She
emerged suddenly into the limelight,
and for the rest of her life it shone
full upon her.
In many ways, the name of Amy
Lowell was better known than her
work. Multitudes had heard of her,
but few had read her poetry, and
fewer still could analyze and explain
its inmost meaning. She was a poet
more for the reviewers ahld the es-
i sayists than for the readers, a poetI
!with a message, a poet with supreme
confidence in herself, a poet who was
certain to be misunderstood, and as

Today. the University is host to a
large number of fathers of students.
The atmosphere will be more or less
one of festivity, as "rah-rah" as poset
sible, because that appears to be the
best way to entertain the fathers,
since it is such a change from their
everyday routine.
But the atmosphere which will per-

a change for the students. It is only
upon such occasions as this that there
is any resemblance between actual
and story-book college life.
The fathers cannot hope to get a
correct opinion of life in the Uiniver- 1

this. There is always a great deal
of work to be done, and it must be
done by every student who expects to'

that the fathers will enjoy their visit
here, and we also hope that they will
