OUR ATHLETIC CRISIS
Michigan's board in control of ath-
letics will meet today to ratify fresh-
man schedules. It has been rumored
that they will take up the conference
ouestion. We hope that the board will
take definite steps to re-enter the wes-
tern intercollegiate conference as a
solution to the present athletic crisis
which Michigan faces.
We now have no definite athletic
status, either in the east or in the
west. We do not engage in a.. sport
with our natural rivals. These are the
chief factors we believe in the ath-
letic slump which Michigan has suf-
fered during the past few years.
Michigan withdrew from the confer-
ence in 1908, because it did not care
to abide by the reform rules passed
in that body, and protested particu-
larly against the retroactive, three-
year rule which hit Michigan hardest
because at that time it had a number
of track and football stars who would
have been made ineligible by the rule.
Since 1908 the breach caused by the
reform rules has narrowed. At pres-
ent there are but few differences be-
tween the conference code and our
athletic regulations, and consequently
our athletic organization would need
but very slight modifications to con-
form exactly with the western rules.
Faculty control of athletics and the
training table are the chief points of
difference at present. In order to con-
form with the conference code, all that
would be necessary would be to place
a veto power in athletic matters in the
hands of some group of the faculty,
the senate council possibly. This dif-
ference in the make-up of the athletic
organization is negligible, because the
board in control as at present con-
stituted would remain in charge of
athletics. It is popularly believed that
in re-entering the conference Michi-
gan would have to give up the train-
ing table, but in as much as most
conference colleges maintain for their
teams some form of training table,
Michigan is not likely to suffer from
the training table rule.
Michigan will not have to swallow
its pride in re-entering the conference.
The advantages will be mutual. The
conference will have in its member-
ship another big university, and
Michigan will have competition with
We think that a majority of Michi-
gan students, faculty, and alumni be-
lieve that Michigan should re-enter
the conference and in so doing resume
athletic relations with our old natural
rivals in the west.
It is up to the board in control and
a realization of tragic possibilities, do
not let their patriotism wain.
We are confident that in this pres-
ent international crisis, Mr. Hamill
has a vital message to Michigan stu-
J-LIT CLASS MEETINGS
Less than 30 members of the J-lit
class met yesterday in response to a
call for a meeting to nominate a stu-
dent councilman. While class matters
are in many cases subject to other
affairs, it is distinctly a dishonor to
the 1918 lits that they cannot appear
in larger numbers for the choice of a
member of the Student council.
Another meeting will be held on Fri-
day in room 101 economics building,
at which time the present president of
the class will hand in his resignation,
The councilman will be nominated and
elected, and another president select-
ed. In view of the events to take
place, the University has a right to
expect that there will be at least a
quorum of J-lits present.

if he can tell us the real solution,-

hide behind the paltry excuse that
"our minds are not yet ready."

"Patriotism and International Rela-1

o'clock in room B of the law building.

apt to allow our conception of -patri-
