Football is gaining i" faor. Per
haps never before has the opening of
a season brought so many candidates
on the gri .irons at the great univer
sities. At Purdue l'niersity Io0 men
are out for the regular team; at Ne
braska, SO: at Kansas, l."; at .Mis
souri, !.".; at Ames. 40; at Iowa, 40:
at Northwestern, :0; at Illinois. 4."..
Everywhere the early prospects are
for excellent teams.
A few years ago the talk of abolish
ing football was strong. Columbia,
California and Lcland Stanford uni
versities gave up the game. The last
two hae resumed the game in a mild
form and Columbia will soon again
play the regular game.
A set of proposed amendments to
the state marriage and divorce laws
will be presented to the General As
sembly of .Missouri this winter by W.
W. Wright, divorce proctor of Kansas
City. He says that the present laws
are too lax. It is interesting that out
of his practical experience .Mr. Wright
has come to nearly the same conclu
sions as several sociology professors
who are sometimes called theoretical.
The amendments include the estab
lishment of a court of domestic rela
tions, physical certification before
marriage, six months' publication of
marriage banns and prohibition of
marriage by certain classes. A di
vorce when granted is not to be final
for a year, and the defendant is not!
to be allowed to remarry during the
life of the plaintiff.
The adoption of these suggestions
would undoubtedly be a forward step
for Missouri, but their immediate ef
fect would be that the persons they
seek to reach would merely go across
the state line for their marriage or
It would seem that this is one sub
ject which must be treated by the na
tional government if any thorough
end is to be accomplished.
Figures may not lie but there are
times when they can produce some
very erroneous impressions. A good
example is contained in a statement
issued recently by the Bureau of Ed
ucation in Washington, D. C. regard
ing the ph.vsical condition of school
children in this country.
The statement contains figures
gathered by Dr. T. M. Wood, profes
sor of physical education in Columbia
University, lie claims that fifteen of
the twenty million school children
"Need attention for physical defects".
We are ld to assume a deplorable
condition of health is the rule among
these children.
We are willing to accept the find
ings of the examination without
doubt. We know it's true that the
perfect ph steal specimen has yet to
be discovered. In making the test a
high standard was used. The slight
est deviation from this standard
meant an imperfection in the child.
And the examinations were made
chiefly of children of the city. School
children of the country seldom need
a doctor's care.
Statistics show our children are in
creasing in height and in weight, and
that the mortality rate is decreasing
every year. There's certainly no de
terioration among them. We refuse
to be alarmed at Professor Wood's
We can't all measure up to a stan
dard of ph.vsical perfection. Some of
us must be fat, some tall and slen
der, but that's no hindrance to suc
cess. Ollie James, the Democratic
congressman from Kentucky, is so
ponderous he shakes the floor of the
House as he lumbers to his seat.
President Taft occupies more than
the average man's space in the White
House automobile. Governor Wilson i
is tall and lanky. Dut none of them
are incapacitated.
