An interesting letter arrived in the mail yesterday from Jim M

so-called 'freshman' rule will undoubtedly come up for consid
again in the Western Conference.
"The Big Ten has been historically against the use of fres
varsity athletic teams. Originally the one-year residence rule was
to help eliminate proselyting and tramp athletes. The Conference ha
,maintained that inasmuch as intercollegiate athletes are a physi
extension of education a student is primarily concerned with doin
job in his school work.
"It is generally a difficult transition from high school toc
and a student may have some trouble in orienting himself to ne
ditions. The time which a student finds to devote to extra-cur
activities from the second year on does not come so readily to the
man who learns gradually during the first year how to Use his tin
"Freshman teams are encouraged at the present time andr
have been passed by the Big Ten to allow intercollegiate contests

athletics and physical training.
At their December meetings, the directors of athletics of the
ber universities in discussing the matter of rescinding the res
rule were hesitant to recommend such action to the faculty repre
tives for fear that the program of expanded athletics for as man
as care to participate, might be retarded. A few star freshman a
might make the varsity squad and dozens of other boys who wer
ing direct training benefits might have those benefits eliminated
"Many thanks to you for your courtesy and for the considei

Conference, big-wigs? Universities and colleges throughout thec
are lifting the bans on freshman participation in varsity sports a
finding it successful. Perhaps our Conference moguls have to be
of themselves before they go on; meaning, when every other naJ
