A NEWSPAPER POLL. From now on we will begin ;to hear in incrca.sing niimUer of pollH taken to catch the drift of sentiment fo|-^ the 1928 campaign. One of the most interestiiig conducted to date wa.s the one recently com- ideted by the National Republic magazine. Jn this poll the moga- -7.ine -80Ug ;ht to learn fconi Ilepub- ;^ican newspaper- editors and Re- liubltcau leaders, . the- sentiment .e:^lstlng in their re.spective. com- ..murities on both tlie Republican aijid Democratic nojrainets. inquiries t were'! addressed to 5,800 editors of Republican papers of .whom more than one-third Replied and tp 3,600 memlwrs of state pommittees 6t whom about on^-fourth irejjlied. The inquiries •wijre made on- the assumption that President Coolidgc would not be a -Candidate to succeed himself. 'The result of the poll as rjust ; announced by the National Rcpiib^ lie is interesting.. It showed that Herbert Hoover, Secretary of Com- mierce, is leading in sentiment in the Republican ranks with former c\GoTernor Lowden. ofhllinois, sec- .onij. In the Democratic camp the paU injdicated. aecbrdiiig to these R«pu^;ican. editors and leaders that 'Governor Al Smith of New !. Yprk has ivirtually a walk away for the nomination.

Emporia Gazette: The esteemed Lawrence Journar in the midst of a;n able editorial on the football situation-dcclaren: Football is not a cloi8icr «>d pU'HUit." W'hich is the Alpha Omega of (ho whole row over, about, and pgalnst football. Football has no business in a college .as football Is now played; which means playe.d' professionally. Professional college fbotliull distracts students frohi their work. It'corrupts their morals-by roak-r ing them ^'ant to win rather than to deserve It makes sports instead of students out of many young people .sent to our colleges, as. a result of which sporting college minority we are growing a nation of ioiid-mouthed siicceks- bounds who get nothing out of their education' that is sweet' aiid lovely 'hot go into life a mob of rotters who will trip, gouge, beat,, sneak, lie, cheat and steal to win. The Amlerican Babbitt Who is siich a lousy example of all that is worst in American life, "is the direct result of over-emphasizing huiiiaiy. bull-fighting In the Amer- iccn high schools and -colleges. I'ntil this crooked professional ip<irt is taken from our .^merican institutions and professionalized as it shoufd be outside ediication, America will be more or less the lai'Phing stock of tl-e civilized world. The Lawrence J6urnal is rkad right when it says: "Football is not a cloisfered pursuit." j • THE TOLA DMLY REGISr 'Tl/MOyDJIiy ^^^'EJff ^rafeKM^^S^ 19^ IN THE DAV.S XEW.S. .Arthur It.
