Wanted: Intercollegiate Basketball!
STUDENT SENTIMENT, without doubt, reacted favorably
toward this year’s innovation; namely, intr-mural sports. Notwith
standing the fact that the new athletic program still presents prob
lems that must be met in the future, the idea of democratizing athletics
is worthy of support. There is only one objection in the whole sit
uation ; to wit: the suspension of basketball for the season. Student
sentiment at the present is strong for the reinstatement of intercol
The ideal of college athletics is to combine intercollegiate with
tntra-mural. Intra-mural athletics alone fail in its purpose and if
there lis any criticism at all regarding the intra-mural program it is
the suspension of the intercollegiate phase with its broadening in
fluences. In athletics, as in all other things, universities cannot
achieve the best results by adopting a closed door policy and living
to one’s self alone.* Combined in the right proportion, intra-mural
and intercollegiate athletics have great possibilities in the realm of
college sports. The two should go together, one reinforcing the
The University has had a taste of a season of intercollegiate
less sports and one taste was enough to satiate their appetite. The
proposition was tried for one season. The experiment was success
ful as far as it went, but it did not go far enough. The reasonable
policy is to pursue a middle course by recognizing both phases of
sport. Now the university is ready to have basketball reinstated.

YESTERDAY SAW the organization of voluntary military
drill at the University. Two companies are assured.
Without doubt the pandemic among the colleges and univer
sities for voluntary drill due to the present contagion of war. Not
only Kjurope wrapped in an armor of steel, but the late Mexican out
rage have combined to force this country to pay some attention to
things military. As soon as peace is restored throughout the world
the pandemic will vanish, but in the meantime the universities should
shake <>ff their proverbial abhorrence of things military and join in
the preparation program.
OJegon is merely following the example of numerous institu
tions of higher learning in adopting voluntary drill. Harvard has
mustered 1000 voluntary drillers. Yale is erecting an armory to
house her student soldiery, and Pennsylvania has instituted courses
in the science of modern war under the direction of the War depart
ment. Old Nassau still preserves that flavor of antipathy toward
In a time when our country is surrounded by war the necessity
of preparation cannot be overlooked. At the same time however it
would be unwise to jump headlong into compulsory drill, which, once
established is established for all time. While Princeton’s example
of aloofness to voluntary drill in a period of peace would be com
mendable it must be admitted that in a time of world-wide war, even
the universities should not persist in “philosophizing while Rome

STEAM LEAK IS STOPPED
Damage to Return to Steam Line Causes
A cloud of steam has been coming up
from a spot on the University campus
for the past week. Last Monday it was
noticed that a patch of grass about 20
square feet, between Deady hall and
the library, was burnt brown by the
escaping steam. Workmen were set to
work digging at the spot. The break was
located in the return to the steam line
in the underground heating system be
neath the sidewalk in front of Deady.
The system between Deady and the
library has been in use for nine years
and will be abandoned as soon as the
new building is erected, for the library
will then be put on the new system. Mc
Clure hall, the men’s dormitory and
Johnson hall are already on this sys
tem that was installed last fall. Deady
and Villard will be the only buildings
left on the old heating plant, which, ac
cording to H. M. Fisher, superintendent
of the buildings and grounds, burns
much more wood than the modern sys
tem does and gives less heat. The Uni
versity burns 1800 qprds of slab wood
and 200 cords of body fir a year.
The new . system contains an immense
tunnel that is large enough in diameter
to premit a person to pass through it.
It extends past McClure and the men’s
dormitory to Johnson hall and it will be
extended down Thirteenth avenue as
soon as the new building is built.
