championship" has been one of the
worst evils attendant on the game, toe j
representatives voted unanimously to'
urge the adoption of schedules which
will prevent a decision of the cham
pionship at the close of the season.
Accordingly each college probably will
have only one "big" game to play.
Chicago will play Michigan, but a
game with Wisconsin is unlikely.
College football was dealt a stagger
ing blow by representatives of the
"Big Nine" who. at the conclusion of
a two days conference. Saturday rec
ommended many decided changes in
the conduct of football and other
sports.. The determination -of the pro
fessors, apparently, is to curb as far
as possible all tendency toward profes
sionalism in universities, and various
recommendations announced after the
meeting adjourned have this idea up
permost. It was recommended that the game
of football, as played at present, be
abolished as an Intercollegiate and col
legiate contest in the conference col
leges, that the conference await from
the' American football rules committee
such modifications of the playing rules
as will free the game from brutality
and unnecessary danger; that in the
event that such alterations are not
sufficient, the conference will delegate
a committee to draw up rules of its
own, and that if it is satisfactory, the
game can thus be established, and the
recommendations adopted by the con
ference shall apply to its conduct and
Faculty to Control Money.
The" money end of football was
strongly condemned in a set of resolu
tions, and in the future the faculty
will have charge of the gate receipts.
One of the new rules will compel the
football players to have as many recita
tions during the football season as at
any other time of the year, and at the
end of the school year he must be able
to show a clean record to be eligible
for the team next playing season. Any
man who has received his bachelor
degree or other academic degree will
not be eligible to play on the football
team, no matter by what institution
that degree has been conferred. This
rule will bar graduate students entire
ly, and the game will be played by
undergraduate teams only.
No Professional Coaches.
Hereafter athletic associations will
have nothing to do with securing coach-
that duty being left in the hands of
the trustees of the colleges, and there
will be no football training before the
college opens, the first day the uni
forms may be donned being the open
ing drfy of college work. In the future
the coach of any football teams belong-:
Ing to "Big Nine" colleges must be i
member of the faculty; a purely pro
fessional pakl coach Is not to be em
ployed. Public Notice.

inhabitants, shall be entitled to five
Sec. 2. The county superintendent

of all applicants for such scholarships,
and shall hold an examination, or
cause an examination to be held, in
each township, for the benefit of grad
uates of the eighth grade: Provided,
that where a township is divided by
county . lines, the county superinten
dent in whose county the ICth section
is situated shall have charge of the ex
amination in such township..
Examinations in May.
Sec. 3. All examinations shall b
held on the second Saturday of May in
each year, according to the rules and
regulations prescribed by the Superin
tendent of Public Instruction, and the
pupil found to posses the highest qua!
Incations shall be entitled to suca
scholarship: Provided, however, that
such pupil shall be a resident of the
township in which such examination is
held: And. provided, further, tha
where no application is received from
any township, the county superintend
cnt shall assign the pupil found to

to that township.
Sec. 4. The county suierintenden
shall certify the names and addresses
of all successful applicants, with the
number (and range) of the township
to which each pupil is accredited to the
Superintendent cf Public Instruction
who shall issue to each pupil a certifi
cste of scholarship which shall be ac
cepted by the authorities of any state

examination, and shall exempt the hold
cr thereof from the payment of tuition
or any term, matriculation, or incideii
tal fee whatsoever.
Rnlea and Ileirulntion.
The rules and regulations provided
for have been prescribed by the super
intendent of public instruction as fol
1. In all counties using the "State
Course of Study" as a guide and stand
ard of work, and in which "central'
and "final" examinations are customar
ily held, the regular examination for
graduation from the eighth grade may
be substituted for the special examina
tion for the scholarship, provided due

date of examination. Unless a satis
factory explanation of the delay ac

Taylor, of the Illinois has a wire from
Manager McFarland, of "The Sho Gun"
company, saying, "Cut out the orches

Sho Gun" which is here; tomorrow
night, playgoers will see and hear of
the first joint work of those brilliant
writers, Messrs. Ade and Luders. In
the book and the lyrics will be found
some of the most brilliant and lasting
work Mr. Ade has ever done; the wit
is dominant throughout and there is
something scintillating about the epi
grammatlc lines he places in the
mouths of his creations; then, too,
there is consistency to the book, some
thing in itself which should commend
the work to the most hyper-critical
For his efforts as a collaborator with
Mr. Ade, new laurels will go to Mr.
Luders. The jingling tunefulness which
his marked his "Prince of Pilsen,'
"Woodland," and other musical oiler
ings produced by Mr. Savage is not
lacking In "The Sho Gun." although
there is said to be more body to the
music of "The Sho Gun," than he has
hitherto displayed, but, while gaining
the higher plane of musical composi
tion, Mr. Luders is not sacrificing hi
reputation as a purveyor of the sort of
music which tinkles and jingles and
for that reason his "You're Just .a Lit
tle Different from the Others That I
Know." "The Man She Never Meets,"
"Your Honeymoon Will Last,"
"Schemes." "The Irrepressible Yank,"
"To Teach' the Young Idea How to

bade the senior promenade this year,
planned a midnight substitute for it
Saturday night. They invited 27 cho
rus girls from Richard Carle's "Mayor
of Tokio" company to go to Morris
Cove, a nearby resort,' and have an im
promptu promenade. As the party was
preparing to leave in 15 hacks the fa
culty appealed to Mr. Carle to help
them suppress the prank. He made a
speech to the girls in their dressing
rooms, promising to expel from the
company any girj who took part. The
faculty agreed to take prompt action on
any student who was mixed up in the
affair. The "prom" was given up and
the seniors had to settle a big cham-
quar-ipagne and refreshment bill.

A PESTIFEROUS GERM.
Burrows Up the Scalp Into Dandruff
and Saps the Hair's Vitality.
People who complain of falling hair
as a rule do not know that it is the
result of dandruff, which Is caused by
a pestiferous parasite burrowing up the
scalp as it digs down to the sheath in
which the hair is fed in the scalp. Bo
fore long the hair root is shriveled up
and the hair drops out. If the work of
the germ Is not destroyed, hair keeps
thinnlng"till baldness comes. The on
ly way to cure dandruff is to kill the
germ, and until now there haH been no
hair preparation that would do it; but
today dandruff is easily eradicated by
Newbro's Herpicide, which makes hair
glossy and Hoft as silk. Sold by lead
ing druggistH. Send 10 cents In stamps
for sample to the Herpicide company.
