The commissioner expressed himself in this vein after watching a man named Harry Strauss brought into a police lineup at headquarters. Strauss IMS been arrcsleil 18 times in the last seven years, on charges ranging all the way from homicide to possessing narcotics. He has never been convicted of anything, and when' he was pinched be gave, his occupation as a house painter. He came iu dressed like .a fashion- plale, and it was his satorial mag- 'nijiceine that exasperated the commissioner. V'- '""•• • •.' • • * • •• "This man is a paid assassin," «aid I he commissioner.- "Men like him should -be marked up and mussed up. Bloud should be smeared all over thai velvet collar, instead, "ho looks as if he had just gut out of a barber's chair." Very lew persons will quarrel with'*' Uils .idea, in itself,,,. Unfortunately, when the police sol .Oul lo muss people up,-they aren't usually very-discriminating. J'rcUy suori it is ..Hit-/.minor offender who gets mussed up; then after a while, some totally innocent bystander is arrested by mistake and gets rather frightfully mussed up before he can convince the cops that itA-j all a mistake. 1'V Unit reason, telling any police department lo be brutal is u mistake. The brutality is certain to hit the wrong parties, sooner or later. * •* • » Nevertheless, wc haven't answered the commissioner when we say his idea is dangerous.

'It is hard to think of any very good- awjmeiit, ajraiiist this reform.

Collego, in other words, is a place for study, nnd football is a game the students play in their spare time, for fun. The college which enrolls students who are there primarily to play football, aiul Who accept college work as u necessary evil, is, as President Angell says, being false to its trust.
