Ten Men Show Good Form.
Only ten men were out for practice
last night, but all that practiced
showed good form.
This is Coach iowman's first year at

'JOURNALISM AT KANSAS TJ.
Two Technical Courses Are Offered,
Under Two "Professional" Men.
Two technical courses in newspaper
writing and editing are now given in
the University of Kansas. Twenty
one courses are especially recommended
in preparation for journalistic work.
Kansas enrolls in its technical courses
in journalism forty-two students, thir-ty-siv
in the Sophomore class in news
paper writing, and siv in the Senior
clas in newspaper editing. Two in
structors are employed in the technical
courses in journalism and in all the
courses embraced in the journalistic
work there are twelve instructors.
The total enrollment in the University
of Kansas on November 1 was 2,0S0.
Bad Year for Scottish Farmers.
It is difficult to estimate the total loss
on the Scottish grain crop of this sea
son, but if we put the deterioration at
the quite moderate figure of 2 an acre
for 90 per cent of the lands under crop
the total is a sum considerably over
2.000,000. The winter loss from using
half-rotten fodder and from protracted
sales of discolored and musty grain is
not so easilv calculated.
With the playing of the Army-Navy
game at Philadelphia the football tea
son in the East came to an end. It was
the close of a most notable year prob
ably the greatest in the history of the
game. Certainly all records for at
tendance have been broken, and never
before have such enormous crowds
gathered even for comparatively minor
contests. If the attendance is to in
crease proportionately in the coming
years and all signs point to such
growth tile question of accommoda
tions will be uppermost in the minds
of all college football managements,
says the Boston Transcript.
This problem already has been felt at
Hanard. Vast as is the great Sta
dium, it already is inadequate to take
care of the great crowds that want to
attend the important games. The
uartmoutn game tins tall is merely a
sample. Yale faces the greatest prob
lem of all. At Yale Field the specta
tors are accommodated in nwin'
stands always a menace t" Jne vast
throngs that gather for a championship
contest. These stijnds cannot be en
larged with safety. They pnnstnnt.lv
deteriorate requiring the utmost vigi
lance to insure even comparative safe
ty, thi3 being an ever-increasing source
of expense. Yale is clamoring for a
stadium that will be adequate. Yak
has a championship game every year
in New Haven, and she cannot begin
to fill the applications for teats.
While Princeton has a big game only
once in two years, much the same
problems have arisen and a permanent
structure is being demanded that will
adequately care for the ever-increasing
crowds. The interest is increasing in
football and the number of persons
who must fairly be taken care of in
creases proportionately. It must be
understood that this demand comes
from graduates and students alone.
The Yale management was forced to
cut the allotment of tickets to each
applicant to two. Harvard, in the
Dartmouth game, was simply swamped reiuls a, follows.
Signal honor to a football player has
been gien by President Roosevelt by
his personal letter of congratulation to
Krne-t L. Ver Wiele of Somerville,
fullback on the Harvard eleven that
defeated Yale at New Haen. While
ghing full credit to Victor Kennard for
the kick that resulted in a core, '.Mr.
Roosevelt las stress on the point that
tlie interest ot the individual was sub
ordinate to the good of the team and
points u moral.
The letter is as follows:
"The White House,
"Washington, Nov. 24, 100S.
"My Dear .Mr. Ver Wielje Like ev
ery other good Harvard man, I have
the heartiest feeling of gratitude to- Vne
entire team who won the grer,t""victorv
on Saturday last. But I" feel an es
pecial sense of gnriitude toward vou.
iou were-, our star ground-gainer. It
was through you more than anyone
else that the ball was put in a position
to enable Kennard to do the work
which he did so admirably and to kick
the goal from the field. For the good
of the team jour individual good was
sacrificed and through this sacrifice and
through the admirable work you had
already done and through Kennard's
fine kick the victory was won.
"It was a first-rate example of the
interest of the individual being subor
dinated to the good of the team there
rannot be any better lesson for our na
tional life tnan teach that the good of
the individual must be subordinated to
the good of our people. Now I have
the heartiest admiration for Kennard's
feat. He kicked the goal and he did
a sen ice that no one else could hae
done, and too much praise cannot be
ghen him, but you arc entitled to every
whit as much and eery man I have
met here feels just the way I do.

gratulations, believe me, sincerely

What the situation will be next year
when Yale plays at Cambridge can only
be imagined. Yale and Princeton are
demanding permanent structures for
football, while Harvard men are clam
oring for an extension of the Stadium
into a Coliseum. Only in some such
way can the demands be satisfied.
Development in the new game has
been in streaks this year. Carlisle, last
year the mo-t finished exponent of the
wide-open game, has not shown any
where near so diversified an attack.
Yale was not able to do much with
the forward pass because of the rather
disorganized condition of her eleven
and the constant injuries to her ends.
Princeton gave a better demonstration
of the onside kick in the 'Yale game
than most of the other Eastern teams.
Harvard won the Dartmouth game by
her ability to work the forward pass.
Against Yale she was able to gain
ground successfully in the first half by
rushing and in the second half she ilid
not dare to try the play, lteing almost
entirely on the defensive.
Changes in the Game.
As far as the forward pas-, and on-
side kick are concerned most of the
teams teem to have spent more time on
planning defenses for these plays than
the actual dewlopment of a wider at
tack by their use. Probably another
season will show a still greater ad
ance. Pennsylvania showed a wry
widely diversified attack in her game
with Cornell probably the most
successful combination of forward
pas', onside kicks and runs outsidi;
tackle st.,.n in an important "anie this

was especialy true in the Hanard
Yale game. Xo harder-fought contest
could well be imagined, but there was
the lest of feeling before, during and
after the game. The neutral zone has
accomplished wonders and more and
more it becomes eident that the men
are playing the game for the fun of
playing and not to win at any cost.

LECTURER TELLS OP
EXCAVATION IN GREECE
Weller Describes Work of
American School of Athens.
Prof. Charles II. Weller. of the Uni-
tersity of Iowa, deliered an interest-1
ing lecture on "The Excaiations of the
American School of Athens." to a small
crowd in the Engineering building of
the Unhersity of Mis-ouri last night.
Prof. Weller has lied in Greece and
has been aqtively engaged in the work.
His lecture was supplemented" by ster
reoplicon -views of the chief objects of
interest which have lieen unearthed
through the efforts of the school. An
amphitheater unearthed near Athens.
Dr. Weller said, had a seating capacity
of 30.000 persons. Views were shown
of he remains of the Temple of Apollo,
unearthed at Corintn, and of a syna
gogue near the place in which St. Paul
is supposed to hae preached.
Most of the excavating has been done
where the ancient cities of Athens, Ar
2Us. Sparta and Corinth stood. The
work is still in progress at Corinth.

the field goal from placement and

undoubtedly will come in for a great
deal of discussion by the rules commit

seems likely that if there is any change
it will Ie in lopping off a point from
the 'value of the goal from placement.
A number of minor points have come
up for discussion during the season
that will have to be threshed out at
future meetings, but no radical changes
in the niles are looked for. Under the
