HASES OF COLLEGE LIFi
"Personally, I am in avor of alh
letics in all forms."
This statement, made by Rev. Theo
dore Ekblad, treasurer of Augustana
college, evoked a storm of applause
at a meeting of the Adelphic society
last night. Rev. Mr. Ekblad was the
peaker of the evening and had chosen
for his subject "Phases of College
ife." He divided the subject into
hree phases the mental, physical and
social. Speaking of the physical phae,
"There was a time when it waj
thought that no one could be intelli
gent except those loug-taced, pale
faced mortals who spev.t .their entire
lives secluded in a monastery ot
cloister. This time is rcw past, aa
has also the epoch of 'midnight oil.'
No person can develop his mmd nor
mally vho neglects his physical na-
ure. The men and women who make
their mark are those who seek to de
velop their body as well as their mind.
'Personally, I am heartily in favor
of athletics in every form. I believe
nat every boy should be in physical
shape to take the football field at any
irne. By all means, take proper phy
sical exercise, be it tennis ball, basket
ball, baseball, football, or any other
kind of ball."
Rev. Mr. Ekblad also touched on the
social side of school life and expressed
himself heartily in favor of coeduca-
"In coeducational institutions, such
as this, our young . men and young
women have an opportunity of leani
ng to know each other better. They
earn to know that the one is not ex
actly an angel, and the other is not a
man from another place they learn
o know each other as they really are.
This intermingling has a most whole
some influence on both. It acts as a
leaven on the natures of both. It
makes men of the one and women of
Many New Mi'inlier.
The Adelphic society broke all rec
ords last night bv receiving 03 new
members who applied lor admission.
flie Adelphic and VAienokosmian so
cieties, the rival literary organiza-
ions, are both working hard to secure
new students foi- their respective or-
anizntinns. The Phrenokosniian so
ciety admitted 21 new members last
Friday night, but the Adelphic trebled
hat number last night. Both organi
zations are making plans for the an
nual receptions which are to be held
