VOLUME XXIV. Stars of Freshies The rurtain raiser of the double header which uahere/d In the Col orado fotbciiJ season of 1909 _was a bard fought battle between the University freshmen and the Man ual Training high school. The col legians won by a 17-Co-0 score. Eliminate Kooosmaa and Walker from the freshmen team and the two elevens would have been evenly matched. This Koonsman will bear watch ing. It ta bard Co judge a man’s ability from his appearance against an inferior team, but from what he showed yesterday this freshman/ left halfback will be on the ’Vanufty as soon as the ruleaof eligibility per mit. It was Koonsman and Walker who plowed through the high school hue and circled their ends for the long gains. These two did /practically all the ground galnlo? and their work was consistent. Where Koonsman showed particu larly strong was In cutting in be tween end and tackle when called upon for an end run. In this ho was helped by the weakness o' Manual’s left end and tackle, who seemed unable to get next to hh> tactics, although be made the play again and again. Against a capable end Koonsman would find tt difficult to pull off the same stunt many times In h cession, but nevertheless he demon strated football brains by locating thi& weakness In the defense and taking advantage of the other low’# mistake*.—Denver Republican. Taft’s Winona Speech the Political Sensation of the Year. Taft’s speech at Winona Friday was the political sensation of the year. It was staggsridfc. Those Re publicans who have been criticising the Republican party cannot have dreamed that such a philippic would be uttered by the President. Those who have believed in party regu larity and In the Tariff as enacted certainly were not looking for such an endorsement from the President himself. The President must have thought that ae the head of the Republican party It was Incumbent on him to Speak out plainly, to tell the truth and to enunciate once for all the faith of the party on the Tariff and to defend it against the accusations that it failed in the keeping of Its promises. He has rendered hie party a signal service. It has been drift ing. here in the Middle West, under the leadership at a few men. who never have been Republicans at heart. Into a stats of anarchy. Thousands of Republicans, under the spur of factionalism and under the inspiration of personal leader ship, have been drifting into error and have been accepting doctrines that were never known to Abraham Lincoln or William McKinley as Re publicanism. In a measure, the President has aet us all right. The Republican party in lowa can not be something apart from the Republican party hi the nation. We must either be one or fall In whatever good the country has a right and reason to expect from that historic party. Let us all accept the Interpretations end the leadership of the President and pro ceed to bind up the wounds In lowa Republicanism reuniting the party. —Cedar Rapids “ Republican. ” Colorado Conservation. Men who object to the acthrhy of the federal government in connection with the conservation of natural re sources should remember that ' Eds activity would never have been dis played if the states had dons their duty. Talk about resisting federal en croachment In any matter lying within the domain of state jurisdic tion ks nonsense. There Is no such encroachment, unless that term of reproach be applied to the response which federal author ity makes to the will and the Inter ests of the public where those mat ters are neglected by the states. It Is folly to attempt to resist these so-called onchroachments, for the power of federal government when exerted in response to the demands of public welfare will surmount and overwhelm any resistance which may be offered by advocates of state rights or theories of constitutional construction. The only way to avoid what Is called federal enchroachment Is foi the states to render federal occupa tion of the field unnecessary. Let the states do their full duty within* the range of their Juried lotion and there will be no federal enchroach tnent or anytklag to which that tons can be applied. The states neglected the duty of vu.‘Serving natural resource*. That * important field of activity Was un* Vv't'fded. Becaua. the work war The Lamar Register needed and the states faded to do ineir duty the federal government srepped in to do it for the people. It was an illustration of what Sen ator Root once said, that if the states did not do their duty, une-t..- would be found for the federal gov ernment to do It for them. Let the states- now step forward and discharge their duty In respect to conservation and federal acti vity wltt he confined strictly to fed eral Interests. —Denver Republican.

As This Writer Says Hsr Age I: Hor Own and Mars Man Muat Net Quoatlon It. Man has no right to question wom an’s age—to even think about it. A woman, bkaa her. Is as old as ibe makes out, or makes up, and not a day older. Man is out of his latitude when hs begins trying /to locate woman’s age longitude. It is her privilege to conceal her age in any farm or manner she may choose, and it la man’s pregrog at irve to assist her as much as possible rather than hinder or question her in any way. Man owes It to Him self to see that she Is supplied with every means of concealing her age, or any new wrinkle which she chooses to keep from the gaxe of the over-curious public. Man Is not supposed to be young or beaut Bui. He coukkn’t be if he wanted to be, and be wouldn’t be tt he corid. With woman ft is different. She wants to be. and can be. and is, whether she wants to be or not, and it. is a whole lot better for her and for her admirers, as the case may be. that her age be carefully guarded under that charm ing veil of mystery which should ever be hers by right of possession. Forget that she has an age. brother, and you will be happier and so will she, but don’t, for heaven’# sake, forget that she has a birthday.— Boston Herald. TWENTY YEARS AGO.
