he teams will play for the love of

lamor to see them do it.
And there is the additional con-
sideration that the rapidly accru-
ing profits from football do not
go to swell the fortunes of a Tex
Rickard or a Floyd Fitzsimmons.
At Michigan, as elsewherethey
pay off the deficits on a host of
other sports, and when the Athletic
association balances its books at
the end of the year, we have
enough left over for golf courses
and Intramural buildings. Thus
these football dollars, while start-
ling in their totals, and lending
weight to an argument that foot-
ball is being Mammonized out of
the field of sport, are eventually
the means of accomplishing the ul-
timate desideratum in college ath-
letics-athletics for all.

JUDICIAL COUNCIL
The Judicial council of Michigan,
which was created by gn act of the
last legislature, is now engaged in
making an exhaustive study of ju-
dicial procedure in order to recom-
mend improvements to the legisla-
ture. In carrying out certain
phases of this work, the council has
asked the Research Institute of
the Law School, headed by Prof.
Edson R. Sunderland, to consider
the problem of improving court
organization and procedure by a
detailed study of judicial statis-
tics.
Until full and complete know-
ledge of conditions concerning
every aspect of the judiciary has
been obtained; no improvements
can be made in the administration
of justice, and law enforcement
cannot be properly handled with-
out greatly increased efficiency of
the courts.
Until the present time it has
been found that legislatures are
far too heavily burdened with mat-
ters of state government to be able
to give the time and study to ju-
dicial adminitration which that
subject obviously demands. The
supreme court is likewise too muchi
occupied with court business to
scrutinize the question thorough-
ly.
It is particularly gratifyingfto
know that Michigan is the first
state to initiate such a program,
but it affords even more pleasure
to know that the University is ac-
tively connected with the project.
This active participation has beer
made possible through the gifts of
W. W. Cook combined with one of
the ablest law faculties in the
country, and the work of the coun-
cil as a whole will undoubtedly
form one of the landmarks in the
field of law and legal research.

FOOTBALL DOLLARS
William Howard Taft, jovial
Chief Justice and loyal alumnus of
Yale, sums up a consideration of
modern football in the last Cosmo-
politan: "I am not an extremist. I
like and enjoy athletics and am
much interested in the success of
Yale in the competitions between
universities, but it can be overdone
and it has been."
This indictment of our most pop-
ular national sport has been in-
terpreted by the Yale Daily News
not to cover the general thesis of
intercollegiate rivalry but the epi-
demic of intersectional contests
which are based not on any ma-
terial or traditional rivalry be-
tween the contesting elevens, but'
actually on the desire of the pub-
lic to compare the strength of East
and West, or North and South, so
that the championship of the na-
tion may be awarded by a con-
census of sports writers."
"This empty glory," the News
continues whimsically, "Bradstreet
has not yet evaluated in terms of
dollars and cents, but Mr. Taft's in-
terviewer sets down on paper some
interesting figures which tell in in-
controvertible terms the story of
the tremendous profit accruing
from 'a carefully selected sched-
ule."
An interesting local angle to this
castigation of Mammonism in
football is the deliberate and very
promising effort of our Athletic as-
sociation to make a little money
on the Harvard-Michigan game.
With a dollar bluntly tacked on
the admission fee there can be no
doubt of the intention, and with a
sell-out assured no one can deny
the business acumen behind the
move. It does, however, lay the
Athletic association open to Mr.
Taft's charge that the business is
becoming more highly valued than
the game itself.
But on this score we would take
issue with the Chief Justice as in-
terpreted by the Yale Daily News.
If 80,000 people are willing to pay

Editorial CommentI

MORE FREEDOM
(The McGill Daily)
The trend in most colleges is to
give the undergraduate more free-
dom than he formerly had. All
universities have rules whereby
students are allowed to miss only
a certain percentage of their lec-
tures. In some colleges this rule
has been extended. At Harvard,
for instance, men in good stand-
ing academically will' be allowed to
cut classes immediately before and
after single holidays. In the Un-
iversity of Pennsylvania anotherf
system, by means of which more
freedom is granted the student, is
in force. In that university forty-
nine students in very good stand-
ing were placed on an Honor List
and given special privileges. One
of these privileges is exemption
from the usual rule prohibiting
more than a limited number of un-
excused absences from classes.
No doubt this freedom can in
some cases be abused. There will
probably be some temptation to cut
more classes than is necessary. In
spite of this, however, we believe,
more work will be done by stu-
dents under a system such as that
outlined above than is now often
the case.
There are a large number of stu-
dents who make a fair standing in
their class work, but who are either
too lazy or indifferent to try for
a higher mark. An Honor List of
students with special privileges
would be a great incentive to such
students. Not only would they
work harder but they would also
make those who are already on the,
Honor List work still more in or-
der to keep their places.
The success of the system rests,
of course, on the fact that only
students of recognized high stand-
ing be granted privileges. Condi-
tioned students or those who ha-
bitually make low marks would be
