I ANOTHER intercollegiate association
H, Is to be formed. We have the "Big
' Three," there is quite a bit of scandal
about the organization of a "lllg Four,"
tho western Institutions have their so
called "nig Ten," and now we are to
have still another The latest Is to be
known as the "Dig Thirty."
If the "league-of-collges" Idea con
tinues to grow at Its present pace for
tho next year It would not be the least
bit surprising to hear of the "Big Five
1 Hundred" or some other "big hundred."
It Is quite necessary that tho word
"big" be used, otherwise Mie colleges
would believe they wero being cheated
oi nuiiicuiing lino mat.
