in a few weeks tens of thousands
of yXarcats in all parts of the country
'will enter their sons in college for the
appnroaching session. They unques

that these boys will 'be subjected by
the university authorities to sane, cle

cerns the character of the men under
'whom they must work in the class
iooms, this ex)ectation will not be dis
appointed. The teaching staffs of the
American un'"ersities, with rare ex
ceptions, consist of men and women
of high standards and correct ideals.
Less universally can this be said of
the coaches who aro placed in charge
of the athletic teans. Some, indeed
'many, behave themselves as conforms
with university duty. Others are en
'4irely unsuited for the task of train
ing impressionable youths of the col

athletic coach upon the mind and
ideals of those under his charge is far
greater than that -gained through

To College Now-Or Laterl
The college years for young men and
women are from 17 to 22. The excep

college early, must finish his couirse at.

at 17 or IS and is -graduated in four
The young man who must Iostpone
the completion of his college course
until Ie is '21 or 25 loses . year or
two from his life's work.'
Thus the young man or oinan who
is to have an education and is capable
of taking it and is kept out of college
one or more of the usual college years
is subjected to a grievous penalty. The
19th year of the college student is, for
college purposes, worth twice as much
as the 2-ith year. The 24th year should
be devoted to reaping the harvest from
the work done in the 19th or 20th. Be
sides, the youth is 'better fitted than
the adult to perform the tasks of col
loge. 'I'he youth is the better learner,
'as a rule. If the nind of a youth o0f
19 rests a year, that rest is likely to in
volve a degree of mental stagnation
and loss of vigor. To these things edu
cators universally agree. None would
say that entrance to colloge can 'bc
postponed until the student is 20 or 21
