This Thing Called Education
'%]I7'E FIND in the younger student a certain antagonism
* ’ toward studies which seemingly have no direct bearing
on his objective. When a subject is suggested by his advisor
he asks, “But what good will that ever do me?” He has (not
yet come to realize that an education, at least at a university,
is something much broader than a mere business college course
in accounting, newswriting or draftmanship. The task of
bringing this larger ideal of education to the studenjt is one
over w'hich the instructors of our underclassmen, and many
upperclassman as well, spend much thought.
One of the prime objects of education should be to teach us
to live, not only in the small world of our own petty affairs,
but in the larger affairs of the nation, and of all mankind. Edu
cation should bring to the individual a broad understanding of
his neighbor, and should wipe out intolerance, provincialism and
much of the petty jealousy which makes for disharmony.
The education which merely gives the student a better
money making and business getting machine will never attain
this end. Our instructors know this, hence the group require*
inents and certain other seeming inconveniences of the degree
system. However, they sometimes find it very difficult to con
vince students that they really need it all. And all too often!
the student can not see this broader view until hq gets past,
and looks back.—II. A. K.
Rolled hose for men, fast becoming popular on the campus,
are so widespread at the University of Kansas that it has been
suggested by student authorities that they be limited to upper
classmen. Our upperclassmen have their distinctive garb, so
why not let the underclassmen who lately have been so eager
to adorn distinctive raiment, “roll their own?”

[ To the Editor:
For years I have watched foot
ball teams and football players, in
practice and in games.
There are many teachers who dis
approve of football as a game and
intercollegiate football as a sport.
They contend that too much time is
wasted by players and that little, if
any, benefit is derived from play
ing the game. A football player re
ceives less consideration from them
than other studetits. They often
become provoked because ho misses
a class or two while on a trip to
play a game.
It isn’t my purpose to point out
the benefits the school and the non
playing students derive from the
games. I will concern myself only
with the welfare of the player.
A student’s curriculum is made
up of many subjects. He gets only
a spattering of some, but all com
bined go towards making a course.
Some take a year of French or
German; others a year of history.
A year in any of these does not
mean that proficiency has been
gained in that particular subject.
On graduation from school we for
get many tilings we learned while
here. And yet, has the purposes of
our course failed? Have our four
years been wasted? They have not!
Our minds needed training and a
year of one study helped as much
in developing the brain as a year
in another. For, after all, unless
we wish to teach, as the years roll
along, only the skeleton of our tech
nical instruction is left.
To most of the students, and es
pecially the girls, geometry in high
school was of no earthly value from \
a practical standpoint. But geome- i
try served its purpose.. It helped'
our minds to expand; it was food I
for thought.
And so is football. If a course re
quires 16 hours a week, why not
let the football player take 13
academic hours and give him three
hours of credit for playing football,
as if football was one of the elec
tive studies? Football is a game
for thinkers. You must think hard
and be accurate. While the quar
terback is calling siguals, his mind
aud that of the rest of the players
must be alert. A mistake will spoil
the play; it may turn victory into
Football has other fcdvantages. It
teaches dicipline. It moulds char
acter. It instills spirit. The men
tal advantages derived by the man
in the moleskin should not be un
If the teachers would analyze
football as they do history or Eng
lish; if they would momentarily
forget it is a sport and attempt to
analyze it as if it wefe an academic
subject, perhaps, after seeing its ad
vantages, they would be a little
lenient with the pig-skin kicker.
A man spends three hours in the
laboratory absorbing physics. An
other spends four hours in the chem
istry lab. Ten years hence, how
many of the young men in the jour
nalism or law professions will re
member what kind of an ingredient
wlil be mixing of two otheir ingre
dients produce! Ninety per cent
probably will not. But chemistfy
has not failed as a study, because
it has helped to develop the mind.
Football also is a mind-trainer.
I wonder, what the teachers, who
either are for or against athletics,
think of football as a mind-trainer!

Should the Green “O” be paint
ed on the back of rain coats?
Charles Norton, president of the
Oregon Knights: “The appearance
and effect of the custom is not
pleasing or artistic and often-times
careless usage of the rain coats
fades the letter. For that reason,
I would say that the sponsoring of
such a custom would cheapen a
sacred insignia.”
A Senior: “I do not particularly
care for the custom. It may be al
right for an upperclassman to in
scribe his class on his cords, but
to daub a green “O” on the back
of such an article as a raincoat is
rather sacriligious. ”
Fred Martin, yell king: “Per
sonally, I am all for the fad. It
shows that there is germinating a
spirit here that seeks expression
everywhere. I think it should be
made a tradition.”
Sophomore: “In some colleges
it has become the tradition that
only upperclassmen might paint
their letter on raincoats. To me,
that seems the only question for
discussion. That the custom is an
admirable one is a certainty.”
Eugenia Strickland: “If the let
ter must be inscribed promiscuously
on such articles of clothing, I wish
the wearers would choose some less
prosaic vestiage than a raincoat.
Of course, everything depends on
the wearer of the raincoat. ’ ’
