THE NEW BOOKS
CAX ROOTIXG TVIXI
In a recent speech President Taft
referred to school yells as one of the
absurdities of colleges today. Many
persons have made similar comments
before and since then. It is a gro
tesque sight to watch a crowd 'of
college men at a football game shout
meaningless Jargon until they lose

At the University of Iowa it has
been found that only one out of every

If college yells are effective in ac
complishing a worthy purpose; by all
means they should be retained.
Those who yell most lustily say the
purpose of it Sail is to arouse college
spirit. They claim that this intangi
ble something called college spirit
can by some process be instilled into
the team in such an amount that the
team will fight and win.
Neither the Ames nor the Nebraska
team heard their college yells onH
Rollins Field. No one can say there
was an iota of fighting spirit trans
mitted by megaphones to the visitors.
All that was needed for the contests
was in the team and along with-it
was whatever was needed to arouse'
the skill to action.
That has been the case in every
game that has ever been played. The
best team always wins, barring acci
dents. There could not be enough
rooters assembled on an athletic
field to make a team win if it did not
have greater skill and physical equip
ment to outclass the opposing team.
As has been stated, accidents decide
games occasionally, but the rooters
surely have nothing to do with them.
A good play should be applauded.
That is natural and right. But it t
seems a bit ridiculous that college)
men, who are supposed to be above
the average in intelligence, should
think that they are disloyal if they
do not sit in the bleachers and exer
cise their lungs violently regardless
of whether their team plays well or

The People's Books. "
Woman ..suffrage" and- -Heredity are
subjects discussed in two books re
cently published in 'the5 Brltfsn series
known as "The .People's .Books." They
belong to a series--Thus far fifty
seven in number that deal with the
results of modern knowledge. The
series is written by authors who have
made special studies of the subjects,
and best of all is written in a clear
attractive style. It contains lists of
books enabling the reader to go fur
ther into the subjects.
The author of "Heredity" is J. A. S.
Watson, B. Sc, a lecturer in agricul
ture at the University of Edinburgh.
It is an attractive account of the ex
perimental method of studying inheri
tance, the statistical study of hered
ity, the practical side for animal
breeders and the importance of engen-
ics. The book is illustrated by dia
grams. The president of the National Union
of Women's Suffrage Societies, Milli-
cent Garett Fawcctt, LL. D., who has
been a suffrage worker forty years,
wrote the book, "Women's Suffrage,"
a short history of the movement. It
is a forceful statement of the question
and its history from 1832.
"Perhaps the mild degree of vio
lence perpetrated by the suffragettes
was intended to lower our sex pride,"
says Mrs. Fawcett in her chapter on
the militant societies. "We were go
ing to show the world how to gain
reform without violence, without kill
ing people and blowing up buildings
and doing the other silly things that
men have done when they wanted laws
altered." Whether or not you agree
with the suffragettes you will find this
book of interest. (Dodge Publishing
