"Some people have the idea that all
we do at Yale is talk athletics," said
Walter Camp the other day. "That is
not so. At this - period of the venr
you might wander over the campus
ana visit tne students in their rooms
all day, and you wouldn't hear foot
bail or any other tonic of SDOrt men
tioned. However, I for one at Yale
tnlnk there are good reasons for trv
ing to succeed at what one undertakes,
and l don't know but what the sys
tern that has brought us a certain rip
gree of success, in football at any rate?
has resulted in our worrying less and
giving less thought to football than is
the case at some other institutions
Who shall he captain and who shall be
head coach for next season are not
matters which are giving Yale men
any great concern, for they have come
to know that those questions are so
managed here that whatever is done
about them wil) be the result of a sys
tern that has been successful.
"We think success in football is
worth striving for, because it teaches
men that if they are to accomnlish
what they set about to 'do they must
do so by work and submission to dis
cipline. That is a good lesson to teach
a man. Furthermore, the moral tone
of college men has improved a great
deal in recent years, and in this the
successful athelete has done his share.
Drinking, dissipation, is ' not good
form for college men nowadays time
was when not much was thought of
it. Take such men as Tad Jones, a
leader among his fellows and who
leads an upright life. Other students
imitate his habits, and such imitation,
unconscious, perhaps, does them a
world of good.
"The man who goes in for athletics
soon finds that he must go according
to a schedule if he is to keep up and
make the most of his time. When the
moment comes for study he has no
time to lean on window sills and talk
with his fellows. He must get right
down to his books, must apply himself
during his study hours, lie auicklv
learns that he must systematize his
hours for sport and study, and habits
ot regularity and order soon come to
"Football appeals to the best people
That is evident when one sees the size
of the crowds and the people compos
ing them. It is. a game of strategy,
skill and brains, and it appeals to cul
tured and intelligent people who ap
preciate what qualities it represents.
In New York, Boston, Philadelphia
and other places where there is cul
ture and refinement football is very
popular. It draws respectable, think
ing people and many of them.
"Another thing about football, it de
mands courage to stick to your plans'
and not become flurried or demoral
ized when your plans go wrong tem
porarily. There is the courageous de
fence, for example. It may seem to
be wrong and to be giving way, and
it icquires courage at such a time to
stick, to it and give it a chance to
prove itself. " The temptation at such
times is strong to forsake your plan,
to try hurriedly to check the opponent
by some other method. Sometimes
your plans are wrong and you lose, but
if your opponent scores on you at
least you learn that you have planned
Wrong, and besides you'll be scored on
still oftener if in a moment of panic
you do not stick to what you have,
are hurried into a mistrust of and
failure to hold to your plans. A sud
den wavering of that sort on the one
yard line will result more disastrously
than sticking to and having faith in
o. iginal plans.
"So far as learning the lesson from
one contest is concerned I have found
that that must begin at once. It
doesn't do to wait to draw the conclu
sions furnished by actual contest on
the field. The time to learn your les
sous so that you may profit, by wha'
they teach is while you still have a
clear picture of the game. A week
aftr you'll find your recollections are
getting hazy. It won't be , quite clear
in your mind whether a certain playei
stood four feet or six feet away, and
you must know positively about these
"I am a believer in the freshman
rule; it has been a good measure, but
in one way it has increased the diffi
culty of developing 'varsity material.
Tho bost school for developing varsity
material is the second team, with it's
lessons learned by hard knocks in com
petition with the varsity. Often the
freshman, being by himself for a year,
comes to the varsity team without
having had any experience on the sec
end tram. lie may have been told a
dozen times j'ist where to stand when
abo-it to kkk. but if he is doing it
wrong that fact won't, be impressed on
him half as forcibly as if he were on
Ihe s cond team and had some big var
sity man come through and block his
kkk find upsrt him. One or two
of the latter experiences arc worth ail
the telling."
In conclusion Mr. Camp said regard
ing the report that he favored aban
doning the forward pass that one pa
per went so far as to say he wanted t
close up the game again make it as it
was before the new rules. Camp never
said that he wanted to abandon th
forward pass. He merely wants to re
store it to the rule that governed it in
190G, and most good judges who have
the welfare of the game at heart agree
with him. The 3 907 forward pass reg
ulations made too much of luck and
too little of skill. As to wanting to
close up the game, such a s'tatemenl
is absurd, because, if for no other rea
son, Camp fathered the 10 yard rule.
But if the Yale adviser took occasion
to deny all the foolish football charges
laid to his door he wouldn't have time
to attend to his clock business. New

Natural Curiosity on the Plain Near
Heber City, Utah.
Of ever increasing interest to nat
ural curiosity seekers are the Hot
Pots, about three miles from Heber
City, Utah.
This region is a level plain, upon the
surface of which arise in strange con
fusion numbers of conical shaped cis
terns, the largest of them being all of
50 feet in height, 100 feet in diameter
at the top and twice that at the base
and containing in their dark depths
immense volumes of water heated to
a high temperature in the furnaces of
the earth. The waters contain the
usual chemical properties of thermal
spiings and are used for bathing and
These pots evidently have been
formed by the slow deposition through
countless centuries of the silica and
soda which enter into the composition
of the waters. They grow in height
steadily with years and present a most
interesting spectacle of nature's
strange creative methods. The Hot
Pots are found in the midst of culti
vated fields and thriving orchards, not
withstanding the peculiar rock-like
soil composition.
One)f the marked peculiarities of
the region is the hollow rumbling
sound caused by carriages and horses
as they move over the roadways for
miles around. "Is there an enormous
cavern just below the surface, and will
it ever cave in?" is the anxious in
quiry of every visitor alarmed at the
strange underground sounds. From

At Bandouinvilje, on the western
shore of Lake Tanganyika,, there is a
beautiful new cathedral, erected by
the French Peres Blancs. It is. really
a splendid building. Everything ex
cept the stained glass windows had
been made locally; these were brought
firm Europe. I crossed the lake in
a little native sailing bark and entered
German territory at Karema.
"I found no elifficulty in getting

Kiswahili, which the missionaries are

language well. Nearly every district
ha-, its own language, not written, but
Kiswahili will carry any one through
equatorial Africa. It has a literature
of its own."

She watched her own little fire.
"What is the explanation of- this
'iiiracle?" she said.
"A very simple one," said the young
man. "This lake is full of natural
