A Criterion for University Efficiency.
A true criterion by which to judge
the efficiency of a University seems
to have been found by a member of
our faculty, who holds that a Univer
sity should strive primarily to devel
ope the mental side of our natures—
develope the mind for correct thought
process—and every activity entered
into should have this end in view.
lie contends that if our de
bates, football games, college papers,
efforts to secure grades, etc., have
as their end a mental stimmulus, they
are good; but if, on the other hand,
they are not valuable, primarily, for
this they are a waste of time to a
This professor does not advocate
making so called grinds out of stud
ents; he would even tolerate the man
who despises his studies, if he spends
his time in other activities which open
his mind to the world about him and

in an organized manner when he
The objection the professor makes
to our athletics is not that we do not
play our games well, but that we play
them too well. Health is necessary
in order that the mind may do its work
well; but when we make the

“Let the students argue more over
questions of social, political, eco
nomic and moral moment,” the pro
fessor says. "Let them quarrel over
whether or not we are possessed of a
will, or whether the single tax should
be adopted or rejected, for such
things strengthen the mind and help
to make it a fit instrument for solv
ing life’s battles.”
We think this thought is worthy of
consideration by students, who natur
ally lean towards the more attractive
material things, amt by the faculty,
who tire apt to become so engrossed in
tin* routine of their subjects that the
ends of a University are lost sight of.
It seems to us that could the stud
ents keep this criterion constantly
before them, much of the abuse aris
ing from athletics and other student
enterprises would disappear, and
should all the faculty work in the
light of it, many courses, now of no
practical benefit, beyond the develop
ment of parrot-like minds, would rise
to a plane of real usefulness.

THE STORY THE SPORTING EDI
Note—Shakespeare held that the
common herd could rise to poetical
heights when laboring under stress of
emotion. He was undoubtedly correct
as attested by the following:
’Twas a cloudy day and dark and
dismal, and we worked at our
desks in silence,
Fen at my right, and Evans at my
left, and the rest scattered
round the big table,
When the sporting editor, whose ver
satile brain feathers out the
true heros of our athlete world,
Laid aside his huge pen, brushed
away a hat and said, “Men, let
me tell you a tale of ingrati
“In nineteen hundred and eight, you
know, when Harvard beat Yale
by a score so close,
The shoe of Vic Kennard, who won
that game, was gilded and
placed in their case of trophies.
Now we have a man, who time after
time turned certain defeat into
By his trusty hoof; but whose shoe,
my friends, lies forgotten, I
say, ’neath the rubbish collected
in Hayward’s damp cellar.”

“Oh, why should the spirit of mortals
be proud, when such base in
gratitude confronts us to view,
The old cleated shoe, the green sock
that went in it, lie molding and
rotting, forgotten, I say.

And let me cross that river of tears
in silence, forgotten by the
cruel, cruel world.
But don’t let “Khaki’s” shoe molder in
its grave, rescue it, gild it,
