Haverford college, that staid old Quaker institution near Philadelphia, to which Earlham fiends scholarship students yearly, hag ,taken a stand for Athletics as against money. President Isaac Sharpless, of Hav erford who is known to many Rich mond people, declared in an address yesterday that in the last twenty-five ears college nior- ' ; have improved as ihu result, of the development of ath letics. In his college, he said, foot ball had not usurped the functions f intellectuality, but appeared to Lave promoted them. This declaration closely follows Swart!) more college's refusal of the $1,000,000 bequest made with the pro viso that athletics must be abolished 1 here. Among other things. President Sharpless said: "We have had at Haverford a most successful football season. I do not merely refer to the fact that we won three-fourths of the pomes when I say successful. There are other matters which go to make tin the count in our favor, which appeal to me more stronsjy t'.ian that. I think we have pone through the season showing to the football world that we are able to play reputable football here; that we treat our opponents in a sportsman like way; that we play games on a clean and lepal basis. "It is also a satlsfMctiou to me to note in looking over the marks of the. football men for the quarter, taking into account fie eleven who began the frame with Trinity, that only one of them had an average of less than 'C: only one of them had an excess of ruts, and tat was, I think, not due to fooflnii The caotain of the team, who rortninly did his duty in the field ins cnpti n had an overage of 'A for the quarter and lie had no cuts at all. "I think probably the football play ers have lived a more hygienic, life during the time they have played than many of the other students." Muncie, Ind.. Dec. 10. Walter E. Petty, as well known as any sporting man in the state during the roller polo boom days, died suddenly in Phoenix, Ariz., Saturday. Death was due to pneumonia and came four days after he became ill. Petty, who was but twenty-nine years old, was wealthy, sharing with his brother here the big Petty estate. He was especially well known over the state as manager and owner of the Muncie team in the STALEY BY HIS HONEST CONFES SION WINS THE SYMPATHY OF COURT THREE SMITHS NOW IN JAIL. 'What's the use of you sittins there lieing against me? I am telling the Gods truth and the judge knows it" asked Omer Staley, a seventeen year old boy, of his companion, Harry Smith, aged nineteen years. Both were seated in the city court this morning. Smith was charged with giving liquor to Staley, a minor, and Staley was charged with securing money by false pretenses with which Smith bought the booze. Staley said that the other lad influenced him to commit the criminal act, but Smith denied it. Staley's story was heard, then Smith denied what his compan ion had said. Judge Converse, believed the Staley boy and suspended judgment on him, the lad faithfully promising to reform Western Roller Polo association. For j and make a good citizen of himself. more than four years Walter Petty had been partly, invalided, tuberculo sis having taken hold of him, but, al though several times he was thought to be dying of the disease, he eventu ally began to recover and his recov ery , was so rapid that when he was in Muncie on a visit a few weeks ago his weight was greater than it had ever been and his cough had almost entirely stopped. His body is being brought to Muncie for interment. COMMUTE TO MEET INDIANAPOLIS Republicans Will -Prepare for Party Organization. CONTEST WILL BE WEDNESDAY EVENING Earlham's Representative to The State Contest Will Be Chosen Then.

A call for a meeting of the republi can state committee and the execu tive committee of the state commit tee was issued Monday afternoon by Chairman James P. Goodrich. Telegrams were sent to members of Ihe committees asking them to meet t. the Claypool hotel in Indianapolis en Wednesday at 1 o'clock.

The primary oratorical contest to determine the man who will represent Earlham at the state oratorical con test which will be held at Indianapolis in February, will be held in the chapel i . ... i at karlham Wednesday, Dec. 11, at S ). m. Lester Haworth and Gustave Hoelscher participated in the primary at Earlham last year but were beaten by Walter Miles, who has the last speech on the program this year. Mr. Miles was badly beaten in the F.fate j contest, DePauw winning first place. Karlham has been successful four ; times, Luther Feeger, Joseph Kenney, I Nellie E. Wood and Gertrude Sim i mops an Indian girl all coming off i with the highest honors. Gustave Hoelscher has been picked as the win ' ner this year and as the judges have been lessened in number from six to three, these three taking upon them selves the deciding on thought and delivery, it is quite probable that he will come off with the honors. Mr. Hoelscher won the state prohibition contest at DePauw 1a?t spring and the interstate contest held at Ada, Ohio, a month later. He will enter the Nat ional contest at Columbus, O., next summer. The program for the pri mary is as follows: Music. '"'TH The Genius of the 16th Century Mr. Hoelscher. Problem of the American City Mr. Pennington. Wm. McKinley Mr. Ackerman. Music. Conflict of Individualism and Social ism Mr. Haworth. Civic Pride Mr. Wiesner. Cooperation and Modern Life Mr. Miles. Music. Decision of judges. For giving whiskey to the other boy and for influencing him to commit a criminal act, Judge Converse fined Smith $50 and costs, which means sixty days in the county jail. Staley lives with his father and from the boy's statements it appears that the father pays but small atten tion to him and allows him to shift for himself. As a result his associa tions have been bad. The lad's moth er is divorced from his father and is now the wife of an Italian laborer. In his statement to the court Staley frankly admitted that he intended to defraud Charles Greenhoff, a grocery keeper, Monday before he met Smith. Staley said that he wrote a note to Greenhoff, asking for $3 and to it he signed his mother's name. After writ ing this note he "lost his nerve." Later he met Smith and the latter suggested that he secure some money from Greenhoff with which Smith could buy some whiskey for both of them, which Staley said Smith fre quently did. Urged on by Smith, Staley went to the Greenhoff grocery, got or the de livery wagon and drove otf with Greenhoff. After riding about a block Staley said that he got off the wagon and ran back to the store. He told the clerk that Greenhoff had sent him back for $3 so that he could buy some sugar. The clerk promptly gave the boy the amount he asked for. Staley then met Smith again and gave him 73 cents to buy some whiskey, which Smith did. When arrested ear ly this morning Staley had $1.23 re maining. He has promised Judge Converse that he will get a job, pay back to Greenhoff the money he de frauded him out of and that from this time on he will be a good boy and r. ev er get. into trouble again. Staley will j report every Saturday at police head quarters ana give Jiulge Converse an account of his actions. Harry Smith is the son of Anne Smith who was sentenced to a long term in jail Monday for keeping a house of ill fame. At the same time Ethel Smith, the daughter, was sent to jail for being an inmate of the re sort. The head of the Smith house hold is now the only member of the family not in jail. A case of attempted incendiarism has been reported to the police by B. C. Pyh?, who asserts that some boys threw coal oil over the barn at the rear of 129 South Third street, with the Intention of setting fire to it. He claims to know the boys who did the work and may have them arrested and prosecuted.
