editorials Page 4 I'li.r tolojjrnm Monday, October 29, 1962 Hit 'Em Again i AN ALUMNUS of Kansas State University (College in our day), we boost the Wildcat athletic teams. In football, this has been a losing cause, and from the performance of the freshman team this season, it will continue ta be for at least another year. But we aren't discouraged. Admittedly we would be pleased to see a rare K-State victory on the gridiron. But not at the expense that some major colleges and universities must pay. Kansas State's team has a majority of Kansas players. And more important, these players are good .students — which they must be in order to continue to play football. It's a similar story at Kansas University, which has better football fortunes but still owes much of the success to Kansas players and those from nearby adjoining states. When Kansas State journeyed to the Wast Coast a few weeks ago to face the mighty football power of the University of Washington, they found themselves overrun by players from many states. Big college football has become a fight where brawn rather than brains determines the victor. This hard-hitting type of football is taking a heavy toll in serious injuries. Occasionally a fast, light-weight backfield man gets into the limelight but only because of the heavy beef in the line in front of him which allows him to get away. Cheering section of nearly all schools — from junior high to major universities — yell: "Hit 'em again, harder! harder!" And this is the story of today's football, where players are hitting a little harder each season. This will continue to the tune of blood-thirsty, win-hungry cries nf the fans and alumni. Prices of gridiron victories are going up. From Another Tyoewrirer Political Shifts Independence Daily Reporter Political sure things do not always stay sure. In the last half of the 19th century and the first quarter of the 20th nothing was surer than Philadelphia on election day would be a Republican bastion. GOP majorities of 10 to 1 were not uncommon. Now all this is changed. Philadelphia is a Democratic Gibraltar. The latest registration figures show 609 thousand enrolled Democrats to only 335 thousand enrolled Republicans. This is the largest margin the Democrats have recorded. It was an extraordinary Philadelphia majority of 330 thoUsond that carried Pennsylvania for Kennedy in 1960. This Democrat superiority does npt necessarily mean victory by that margin. Not only are the independents to be reckoned with. Enrolled partisans do not always support their own party ticket. Republicans have gained, too, In unexpected places. It would amaze a politician of two .generations ago to learn the Democrats had nearly a two-thirds majority in the Senate. This 0 is despite the fact such ordinarily Democrat or doubtful states as Maryland, Kentucky and New York had two Republican senators apiece. Whatever else is happening, voters are- not automatically voting as their fathers did. That is a favorable sign, even tho it makes life mor e complicated for the politicians and the so- called experts. THE PARTY at 6-6956 would like a black (absolutely all black), male kitten.
