Only Players That Are Irregular
In Practice Are Flunkers,
Report Shows
MINNESOTA INVESTIGATES
An entirely new light has been
thrown on the old question of par-
ticipation in football versus class-
room scholarship by a recent in-
vestigation at the University of
Minnesota.
The conclusion reached is that if
you are seriously interested in foot-
ball and really devote yourself to
it, the chances are you are just
as good a student as the average in
a "random sampling" of your fel-
lows.
It's the men who do not takeI
their football seriously, turn out
irregularly for practice, and aren't
much in earnest about anything
who are the football "flunkers,"
this study concludes.
The Minnesota psychology de-
partment has made the study at
the suggestion of the committee
on intercollegiate athletics. Prof.
Donald G. Paterson directed the
work which was carried out by I.
Emerick Peterson.
The Minnesota study was based
on the freshman football squad of
the fall of 1927 and its -main pur-
pose was to answer this qquestion:
qc" "Are forces operative inside and
outside a university such as Minne-
sota tending to select football can-
didates who are not really repre-
sentative of bona fide freshman
students."
The report shows that in age, in
self-support, in' working capacity,t
in distribution among the several
colleges, in the economic status of
parents, in the degree of parents'
schooling, and in their own voca-
tional hopes the football group and
the random sampling vary hardly
at all.
Mtr. Peterson summarizes:" On
.practically every count, we find
that freshman football men are
typical of university men in gen-
eral. They constitute a genuine
cross-section of the student body."
"There is every reason to believe
that no influences are at work to
produce anything but a legitimate
student , enterprise, entirely in
keeping with the intellectual and
academic purposes for which the
university is maintained," he con-
cluded.

Prof. Andre Morize of Harvard

country, in his lecture on "Conver-

Their only disadvantage is that

Professor Morize traced the his-

of the French salons in the seven-

on history, on social institutions,
and the development of language.
