    Hoover Accounts
Football Evils to
Public Demand
‘Gridiron Is to Education
As Bull Fight Is to Agri
culture,’ He Writes
Advocates Professionalism
To Kill Sport
“The evils of college football
could bo cured from within if col
lege executives and faculty were
not in the main a lot of rabbits,”
writes Glenn E. Hoover, assistant
professor of economics, in an arti
cle on college football which was
published in the April 14, number
of The New Republic.
Mr. Hoover does not accuse the
college boys of making football the
menace to education that it is to
day. He places the blame on the
demands of the local public and al
umni and on the timidity of the
college executives and faculty. He
points out the fact that in a large
number of institutions the coaches
draw a larger salary than the deans,
that the magnificent stadia have
so dwarfed the recitation halls that
the college itself is considered by
the public a, “mere appendage to
the college sport.”
“‘Football’, the sage of East Au
rora told us,” states Mr. Hoover,
“boars the same relation to educa
tion that a bull fight does to agri
culture’ and yet its place in our
American college system is grow
ing at a threatening rate. The an
nual football budget at Yale is
nearing tho 500,000 dollar mark
and even tho placid President Ang
ell protests to his trustees.”
As a means to prevent colleges
being turned into “athletic coun
try clubs”, the author of this arti
cle suggests that tho salaries of
tho professional coaches be trimmed,
the physical education departments
criticized for aiding the expenditure
of funds for coaches and athletic
managers, and pep rallies dono away
“There is no place like a college
campus”, Mr. Hoover adds, “to see
tho methods of Reverend Billy Sun
day excell those of Socrates.”
When football has once got the
firm hold it has in many colleges of
the United States, Mr. Hoover fa
vors professionalizing the sport. Ho
contends that teams could be built
up which would overwhelming the
college teams and kill football as
a college sport. He emphasizes the
futileness of the efforts of pro
fessors to teach their various doc
trines of reform, by referring to
the free trade nnd ovolution ques
tions. He believes -that, the only
solution to the football problem will
be brought about when somo man
organizes professional football just
as the theaters have boon organized.
“When football is as frankly pro
fessionalized ns baseball”, Mr.
Hoover concludes, “the world may
forget the colleges entirely, but in
any event, they will not be known
for their teams—we professors will
at, last have the peace and quiet
that befits our timid souls.”

Republic is the college number.

Surprises galore and novel feat

typo are promised all campus cel
ebrities and notables who will at
tend the cabaret dance given by
the Seven Seers April 30 at the
Campa Shoppe. Skits by both pro
fessional and campus comedians;
song and dance men who will make
Eddie Foy look for his laurels;
blues singers, orchestra specialties,
and, in fact an evening crowded
full of “red hot” entertainment is
being planned by the campus humor
Favors and decorations are also
to have their place in the festivities
of the evening. The idea of the
king’s court is to be carried out
in an extensive, although humorous
plan, with emphasis placed upon un
conventional details. The favors
are being ordered from Portland,
and there will be an abundance of
new and varied ones.
Costumes, both humorous and
artistic, promise to make the party
a colorful affair. They will be
judged for originality, humor and

The battalion parade and inspec
tion that was to have taken place
yesterday on the It. O. T. C. drill
field at 5 p. m., was postponed on
account of the condition of the
field, the rain having made it soggy
and slippery.
The parade, in which all the com
panies were to have taken part,
will probably be held next Wednes
day, April 27, providing the field
is in good condition.

a great inspiration, as well as a
practical help, to have the active
cooperation of the student body.
One of the greatest services that I
can hope to render to the people
of Oregon is to help the student
body to the attainment of higher
ideals of civic duty, and the de
velopment of a better technique for
the business of life in both its ma
terial and spiritual aspect. I am
awaiting with impatience the time
when I may meet the students of
Oregon and begin our work of col
laboration in the development of
even higher university ideals.
“With the sincerest greetings to
all the students and to yourself.
Faithfully yours,
Arnold Bennett Hall.”

The store was opened in the spring
of 1916 as a result of a vote of
the student body decision to estab
lish a student-owned store, with an
appropriation of $2,000. In the fall
$2,000 additional appropriation was
found necesary, and was advanced
in the nature of a loan. During
the war, the funds of the students
body were depleted; the store was
sold, therefore, in the spring of 1918,
with the resolution that the stu
dents should not attempt to estab-j
lish such a store for the next two
In 1920 the store was reorganized.
and incorporated separately from
the student body organization, un

paid only to the members. About
half the students joined, said Mr.
McClain, while the other half com
plained. For the last three years,

student body constitution, all mem
bers have automatically become
members as soon as they paid their
entrance fees. Sin<^ 1920 the store
has paid back $7,000 to the students
in dividends in addition to creat
ing a total reserve of $11,701.22.
In addition to money advanced by
the United States National Bank,

Supply company, agroup of faculty
members who have organized to
support the store by advancing nec
