Rev. Father John Dunphy, director

would retain his title as head coach
of athletics, although he had severed
all connection with football.
Coming as it did, the dropping out
of Coach O'Rourke took St. Thomas
followers completely unawares. Con

successor will be is a very much up

Chicago, Jan. 16.— a
pearing in the columns of the Uni
versity of Chicago Daily Maroon yes
etrday advocating a new scheme for
the conduct of athletics by wh»ch the
members of all teams would be paid
created a big stir on the campus.
In the article entitled Why Not Pay
\thletes? the remuneration of foot
ball plavers as the first step in the
new system was advocated. Because
the men who take part in work on
student publications receive the pro
fits of their papers, the college jour
nalist held that the athletes taking
part in a different form of money
producing enterprise, should -not be
discriminated against in the distribu
tlon of profits.
Others Are Paid.
The student editor likened the foot
ball players to men taking part in col
lege dramatics under different organ
izations, who receive the box office
proceeds for their organizations, and
the varsity team debators, who are
given scholarships for their work as
representatives of their alma mater.
"Editors and managers of the Daily
Maroon receive a share in the profits
of their paper,'' write the editor.
"Managers of the Cap and Gown
annual publication are sharers in the
profits of their work. The Black Friars
get all the profits from their annual
play. The debators are given gchol
"arships for their work. This causes
no comment and Is accepted as a
condition which la perfectly fair,
