Former Spectator Editor
Writes Book Attackiog
NEW YORK, Oct. 3.-E'vpled
from Columbia University because of
the near-famous editorial in which
he called college football a "racket"
and advocated out-and-out profes-
sionalism, Reed Harris, former edi-
tor of the Columbia Spectator, has
published a book-"King Football,
the Vulgarization of the American
College"-in which he holds to the
opinions which led to his expulsion.
Flays Paid Amateurs
In bristling language he lashes the
subterfuges of paying players, which
he asserts are now employed by
nearly all colleges. He estimates that
"good" salaries for players are $2,216

mediocrity . . . . We have people who
accept the advertisements as essen-
tially honest, who believe rather
vaguely in the goodness of Repub-
lico-Democratism and the badness of
Socialism, Communism, Pacifism,
and all the other isms so hated by
the American Legion."
Denounces Columbia
Included in the generally biting
comments on colleges is a scathing
denunciation of Columbia, his erst-
while alma mater, an unflattering

outspoken criticism of regimented
thought, lack of academic freedom,
and the fraternity system.
