The conference question which has
occupied the thoughts of Michigan men
ever since the fall of 1905 was set-
tled yesterday. It is no longer a
question. In voting to reopen the1
competition with our old rivals in the
west the Regents took a step which
will be welcomed by a majority of
alumni and undergraduates, a step
vbiich cannot but be of benefit to Mich-
igan athletics, and to the University
in every way.
As for our rivals in the East, Michi-
gan hascemented friendly athletic re-
lationships with Pennsylvania and
Cornell, friendships which should not
be affected by the Regents' action, al-
though from now on our competition
will naturally be for the most part
with Michigan's natural opponents in
Time has wiped out the old ani-'
niositics which may have existed be-
tween Michigan and the conference
colleges. We re-enter the conference
todlay not arrogantly, nor as a prodigal,
but with a free conscience, an open,
heart, and a firm conviction that thc
step will be of benefit both to Michi-
ganl and to our rivals.
The Regents came up to bat yester-
(lay and~ knocked a homer!
.or the government's benefit. Now if
someone will kindly reduce the price
of coal, potatoes, onions, wheat, sugar,
and clothing we'll all be satisfied.
