L. Obcott, Editor and Publisher. Entered at the postoffice at Troy as Second-class matter. Subscription, |1.00 per year, in advance. A FORWARD STEP. A plan is soon to be submitted to the regents of the University of Idaho which, if carried out, is by far the most important step ever taken in the line of college wprk by any college in the United States. M. E. Lewis, of Mos* cow, a regent of the University, is the author of the measure. Mr. Lewis has discoved that nowhere is the idea of physical development given the consideration due a matter of such vital importance in the education of a student. The colleges have considered it sufficient to develop the head. The result has been disastrous. Every year the University of Idaho, and it has been no exception, sees some of its best students, especially among the girls, break down and leave school. The body was unable to stand the strain. The student broke down. Many times the case is beyond all hope of recovery, and from the study halls nas walked a physical wreck. Mr. Lewis is of the opinion that the time has come to stop this thing. And he has a plan that will stop it. If his idea is carried out, instead of the weak est student breaking down, a course at the University of Idaho will build up in mind and body, turning out men and women with mental and phys ical equipment to meet all demands. Mr. Lewis proposes to establish a chair, the business of which will be to look after the physical and mental re quirements of every student. On entering school each student is to be given a thorough physical examination. A course of physical development will then be prescribed suitable to the needs of each individual. But the work will have only begun. This professor will study., each student and prescribe a course of diet suitable and necessary for the development of each student. He will then determine the amount of mental work a boy or girl ought to do and the student will be given a course in harmony with a scientific analysis of his or her case. Weak lungs will be developed, every part of the body built up and strengthened, and instead of bidken-down men and women the University of Idaho will turn out per fect specimens of the race. Health, the most important of all things, will be given consideration over all else. The difficulty, as Mr. Lewis sees it, will be in getting a professoi competent to fill a chair requiring so much practi cal and scientific knowledge. But this ought not prevent the carrying out of the idea, the most important thing ever undertaken in college work. PUSHING THE UNIVERSITY. There is probably no educational in stitution is the United States that is going ahead so fast as the University of Idaho. is looked for it is found in the brains behind the school. It will be found that Idaho has a university that is pro gressive; a school that is managed by men who think and then put their thoughts into action. It will be found that much of this progressivenese is due to President James A. McLean, a man recognized today the United States oyer, among university presi dent and workers, as one of the most capable and competent. And the evi dence of this is plentiful. President McLean has made good. He has, by virtue of his work, submitted in com petition with the best brains in the University work in the country, won recognition as a thinker and a teacher, It was his plan for the organization of a National univcrsit that was ad ted I, was this work that proved that the University of Idaho has a president of rare talent and executive ability in Jame - A .

Slde hy side with the product of other au- ta~u~ _ a * SÄ* Idah ° f* * , th " holds his own. And we find the reason ™ the fact that tne University of Tdaho tunled out a finished prod y uct _ In educating the young man and the young woman the practical side of an education has never for a moment been overlooked. And when a reason SHAVER AND FIELDS. The Troy News, when Henry C. Shaver gave up his newspaper work in 1 Latah county two weeks ago, expressed ,n °P* n ' on that, even after being criti* . ised by the Moscow Post, we have no desire to repudiate nor apologize for. What we said about the ability of Mr. t Shaver we then meant, and because we believe what, we said if true, no amount of personal abuse and cowardly, insinuating remarks by the Moscow Post will cause the News editor to change that opinion. Nor have we any apology nor explanation to ofler when we say that personally we have always had a warm regard for Mr. Sha ver. No one in Latah county has op posed more strenuously or persistently the political course of Mr. Shaver than has the editor of this paper. No one has condemned the policy of his paper in some ( business matters more than has the editor of the Troy News. Yet we never ceased to like Mr. Shaver personally, nor lost sight of the fact that H. C. Shiver is a roan of marked abil ity as a newspaper writer. And we are glad that we are not so dwarfed in mind, so blind to whatever good there may be in a fellow-editor, nor yet so self-conceited and puffed up that we cannot at least be fair. Nor will we admit that even to the least degree have we been "inconsistent." Would the Post have had us say that Mr. Shaver, baning the youthful editor of the Moscow Post, was the most able editor in the county? If not this then what objection could the Post have? One whole year as editor of a subsi dized press, the petty mouthpiece of an office-holding bunch, the tongue tied, collar-wearing tool of other men, has not yet upset the literary world, nor produced an editorial of an* weight. And yet he mouths and foams and rails because the News forgot to place his kidlets at the topmost peak of fame and herald him as first of Latah's men who push a quill. Beside the paltry pen that Mr. Fields has so far used, and that which Henry Shaver has abil ity to wield, there is the diflerence of the infant not yet dry behind the ears, and the well-developed, rounded, thinking man. Henry Shaver is, to say the least, a gentlman; a moral, clever man, with faults, perhaps, but also much of good; a man we'll hardly hate because it might be pleasing to the editor of the Moscow Post, the man who struts around with nothing more to make him proud than that he holds a job and is the willing tool of men who give permission ere he dare to speak. WHY CAN'T THEY EXPLAIN? So far not a republican paper in all of Idaho has answered the charges of repudiation, falsehood and broken pledges made by the Troy News. If this paper has not stated facts; if we have misrepresented things; if we have slandered the republican party of Idaho; if in any way the Troy News has deceived its readers, why this awful silence? Column after column of our editorials haye been republished throughout the state, both democratic and republican editors giving space to the charge of repudiation, yet no reply. The best the Brady organs have so far done is to call the News editor names, and evade the questions. Even the Pocatello Tribune, Brady's official mouthpiece, has so far neglected to reply. No denial of what we have said about taxes and the O. S. & L. railroad and republican treachery. Would these republican papers not answer if an answer were possible? Ought it not make patriotic republi cans think seriously? Why can't the Brady papers answer? charges of platform repudiation go un challenged? Why can't these papers explain why a republican legislature relused to pass laws pledged, or carry out promises made? To be plain, the republican party lied to the people and no republican paper dare deny it. The record cannot be disputed, republican party of Idaho LIED. And the liars are now forcing a candidate of their own selection upon the republi cans of this state. Not only that but they will write the platform, run the next legislature, and another chapter as disgraceful as the last. would it not be a patriotic service defeat the whole gang? Can justify his support of such politics? Can a decent republican afford to be come a party to such infamy? Can any citizen endorse such treachery, and knowingly support it? ringsters are not republicans. They represent no principles of the grand old party. Their treachery is not in harmony with the teachings of Lincoln and Roosevelt, Taft and Lafolette. It is the proud boast of republicans that our party has always stood for faithful public service and the fulfill ment of every pledge. Let us refuse to support those who have disgraced this record, and brought shame humiliation upon us. Let us be Why db The give Idaho As a duty we owe ourselves to a man These and men.
