IS CONFERENCE OBSOLETE? jN AN editorial written at the time the Western in- ·^ tercollegiate conference, commonly called the "Big Ten," notified the University of Wisconsin that it must reorganize its control of athletics or suffer expulsion from the conference, the Globe-Gazette rather pointedly raised the question whether this wasn't arrogating to the conference a power which essentially resides in the state board of regents. This article came to the attention of an educator whose present -position of detachment from Big Ten ·affairs gives peculiar interest and value to his views. Whereas we challenged the conference on a specific point and case, this writer raises the question whethea the whole conference idea "as an instrumentality for the control of intercollegiate athletics" isn't obsolete. So interesting and thought-provoking is the letter that we present it in its entirety: "I read your editorial on the Wisconsin case with a sreat deal of interest and sympathy and I fma myfelf in ^reement to a great extent with the view There's just the slightest suggestion of littleness in the Chicago Tribune's hostility toward the Frank Knox presidential candidacy.

DAILY SCRAP BOOK by Scott The PROS and CONS " contention that any university has the right to determine for itself who will be coaches and athletic administrators is well founded. In the Wisconsm case as well as in the Iowa case, there is ground for suspicion that the conference is seeking to support a mistreated director who has been discharged.

Forest City Republican: Among our American Legion boys who were over seas and spent time in both France and Germany we find considerable sympathy for tha Germans in their sally into the Rhineland. The Germans were nice to the U. S. soldiers who we*e stationed in the Rhineland after the close of the war and the U. S. soldiers were nice to them. There seems to be mutual admiration. Certainly the French had never learned to make friends as the Germans did. So many of our returned soldiers insist: "I dont like the French." __ UNDECIDED VOTERS Belmond Independent: A striking feature of some recent polls of political opinion, is the large number of voters who class themselves as undecided. This element seems larger than ever before. There Is a great area of doubtful people who may vote either way in, the November election. That great struggle will be won by the party and candidate that knows best how to appeal to the desires ^f this element. IOWA GETS SHORTED Charles City Press: Iowa pays $1,726,854 more for relief than the ten southern states of Alabama, Arkansas Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, New Mexico, South Carolina and Tennessee But in the distribution of federal relief funds Iowa received less than any one of these states except New Mexico.

However, most of the candidates will hardly get enough votes in the primary to make them reasonable contenders for the place that would come into the functions of the convention. INESCAPABLE SUSPICION Atlantic News Telegraph: The suspicion is bound to persist in connection with the candidacy of former Senator Smith W. Brooknart for the republican senatorial nomination that he was inspired to get »to the race by representatives of the new deal. Obviously, Mr. Brookhart will be unable to escape that suspicion. INTRODUCING MR. GRIMES Waukon Republican and Standard: Iowa, just now -reeking in reverberations of graft, corruption and double-dealing--ought to welcome the candidacy of a "man of the people," one who knows, loves and will work for the people of this great state, regardless of religion, nationality, or political party. READYMADE RESOLUTIONS Swea City Herald: We are disappointed indeed to learn through the Bancroft Register that those nng- resolutions adopted by Kossuth democrats at their PHYSICIAN CAN TEACH GOLFER HOPE by the time these lines reach the reader's eve that the snows will have passed, that the ver- .,, ...in hooin tr, innir exciting-, and the voice of the dure will begin to look exciting, and the golfer can be heard in the land. . . , » , , ,, Golf is a game which naturally attracts doctors, and golfers should be able to learn from the doctors methods of controlling their bodily reactions which would improve their game of golf. Let no one begrudge the doctors their pleasure on the basis . that they are neglecting their duties. As an eminent Scotch medico-golfer said, "Though all the medical men in Edinburgh were to stop work for a week to play golf, there would not be a death more to the city." For his patient, the.'wise doctor is able to recommend golf as a form, of treatment. Besides the mere fact of exercise and open air, it may help to produce an attitude of mind which will enable him to bear the ills of the world with more resignation. Mr and Mrs. Walter Spear. returned today from Nora Springs where they have been visiting for a few daJ Mr and Mrs. A. H. Ikenberry and family have gone to Shawnee, Indian Territory, and Mexico for Dr. Clendening (of sons to get together and send an athlete to That's collusion. But a rich friend or alumnus which Iowa has few in comparison with Michigan, . Northwestern, Ohio and other members of the conference) can make such loans or gifts as he may please to the individual athlete. It's his own personal business. By the nature of things, Iowa is under handicap in this regard. . More and more as the years pass on we incline to a belief that the conference will be best within its field ; if it merely insists, as it can, on a uniform academic standard for ail' who participate in intercollegiate athletics. This, of course, is just one of the problems connected with the conference administration of sports competition. Whether the writer of what is reproduced here is wrong or right may be debated. Surely, however, the time is at, hand when the whole subject should be brought up for an ear: nest, honest and open-minded reappraisal. IS IT GOOD STRATEGY? /·NNE wonders if President Roosevelt is making -a U smart move in starting out to stump the country this far ahead of the election. Political observers say that no president 'assured of renomination has ever before ventured on such a tour in pre-convention time. It is as sure as death and taxes that everything : the president says will be used against him, if pos' Bible by his opponents. Even if the republicans are at the moment engaged in a lively scrap among them- ; selves over the presidential nomination, there will be plenty of them unengaged in the battle to watch the president's.outgivings like hawks, and to call loud attention to every flaw. They will twist and turn whatever he says, and do their best to place him . on the defensive.'That's politics, .and the president well knows what 'to expect. Four years ago he was ' hammering Hoover in the same way. The president must have great confidence in his powers of oratory and persuasion to invite such a slugging controversy. It is not, it would appear, the best strategy to start his campaign far in advance even of the conventions. He will give his enemies too much to shoot at, and since his strength with his own party is assured there's no need for it. Another interpretation, of course, is that Mr. ne r county convention were canned ones made up by brain trusters either in Des Moines or Washington. It is a dismal commentaryonthetimes. "SLAVE" STILlTANOTHER WAY TO SPELL IT Northwood Anchor: Coionel Knox says that about the only alphabetical combination the new dealers have failed to use is SAVE, says the EUcader Register. But the Register probably just didn't recognize toe combination because the right spelling of it makes it read SALVE. THE RECORD AS TOTMJAY FRANKLIN Bancroft Register: Just to keep the record dear: jay Franklin not only had a job "before the syndicate hired him," but he kept it after he had been hired^ andI stm has it, for the resignation _ later forced by militant and alert Iowa newspapers is not yet effeo- tive. LANDON'S HANDICAP Osage Press: The first setback Governor Landon's presidential boom has suffered is the discovery that Publisher Hearst isi for him. THE DOCTOR NEEDN'T* WORRY FURTHER Albert Lea Tribune: Of course Townsend isnt going to worry any more. . He has plenty of dough to last him the rest of his life. EDITOR'S MAIL BAG One of my colleagues came upon a member of a foursome, which he thought was well ahead of him, hacking away at a bunker and said, "You seem quite happy there." The bunkerite replied philosophically, "I'm just as happy in a bunker as anywhere else." Of course, this philosophic attitude of mind has to be cultivated and let it be said that there is no more annoying fellow-player than the one who is constantly giving way to childish bursts of temper and bad language. A clergyman once consulted a specialist in mental troubles on account of repression. He was asked whether he was happily married. He replied, "What has that to do with it? I refer to the repression of bad language at golf." When he was advised to give it up he said "Give up what --the bad language, the golf or my profession?" The doctor said, "Try giving up the bad language and then if you meet with no success, give up golf." The clergyman replied that he would prefer to reverse the order and give up bis profes-. sion. If golf has not better lesson to teach you than that, you are getting no benefit. from it, .physically or mentally. Another piece of medical wisdom which, though a mere side issue, is still an important part of the game, was promulgated by the great Scotch oculist, Dr. R. Areyll-Robertaon, whose name has come down to us on account of his description -of the Argyll-Robertson pupil. His.advice about the eye in golf is this: "When seeking a lost ball, go exactly to the spot where you saw it light, then take twenty steps back and there you will probably find it." In tomorrow's article I intend to describe the famous Pyramid upon which Dr. Hyslop based his advice to golfers. Mrs. Arthur Prescott of Rudd visited in the city yesterday. · .

The other drops down on its back, waiting to be carried up the steps. "And you know," this businessman chuckles, "he's so darned cute about It that I've been letting him get away with it." --o-LINE TWO HAD TO END WITH "CHRYSANTHEMUM" Jan.. was interested in a rhyming !|g|^ contest announced two or *^ three months ago by the Atlantic Monthly--out more interested in the three-barreled entry of an lowan of my acquaintance, L.

A front tire blowout may cause you to lose control of the steering wheel unless you are holding it firmly. In the case of a. blowout of a rear tire, a sudden ' application of the brakes, at high speed, may cause the car to turn over. "When right wheels strike a soft shoulder--In this emergency a fast moving car is likely to swerve and turn over. The driver should hold the steering wheel tightly, remove his foot fram the accelerator, and allow the engine to reduce the speed of the car to a safe point before applying the brakes, throwing out the clutch, or attempting to steer back on to the hard surface. 'When going too last around a cu rve--Every time a curve is rushed centrifugal force acts to push the car off the road. When the driver realizes he is going too fast, his first thought is to apply the brakes. To do this is useless as well as dangerous. Braking cannot overcome centrifugal force and only makes the control of the car more difficult. "When going down a. steep hill-Before starting a dangerous descent, a car should be put into second or, if the hill is long and very steep, into low gear. If further retardation is necessary, apply the brakes intermittently. To stop a car on a steep grade the brakes should be applied gradually up to the point of locking the wheels."

Roosevelt feels his administration needs defense. Recent events, such as the Black committee "cheka," the exposure of the million-dollar payments of farm benefits to corporations and insiders, have brought It under fire unexpectedly galling, perhaps. But even so, it were better to wait until the attack is fully developed before replying, than to expose one's hand thus early. Unless, of course, the president is confident that he can overwhelm all his critics. He is good--but H remains to be proved that he's that good. A FEW MODEST COMPARISONS IOWA FALLS--A few days ago your "Loo BeJow" column stated that "bragging about ones radicalism is like pointing with pride to a touch of insanity ia the family." The following are but a few of the many reasons why I am a radical. George Washington was head of the gang of radicals that overthrew the government. of his day and established a new social order based on democratic principles-something unheard of in the(world before! He helped scrap the constitution of his day (the Articles of Confederation) and helped set up an entirely new one which increased the power ot the iea- erafgovernment and decreased that of the states. Abraham Lincoln was the most denounced radical of his day. He criticised and ridiculed the supreme court and during his administration the constitution was changed (imagine a. republican doing that!) after the suprlme court said slavery was constitutional. Lincoln placed human rights above property rights, corresponded with Karl Marx (father of modern socialism) and said labor was entitled to the pull fruits of its labor (a socialist doctrine!). Toyohiko Kagawa, one of the outstanding Christian leaders in the world, has been in jail many fames for his radical activities. He organized the farmer peasant party (similar to the farmer labor party) and promoted an organization similar to the American Federation of Labor. He vigorously denounces capitalism TOMORROW By Notable Births--Thornton Wilder, b. 189T, novelist .Ray Standard Baker, b. 1870, publicist, biogra- eric J. cents for reply.

Everything is not all right forever. It's mad, it's cruel, to tell a human being racked bv anguish that everything will be all right It's far better to tell him to stick it out for a while, to let him know that whatever happens you will stand at his shoulder and help all you can It's decent- er to remind him that the human heart has a precious gift for healing itself, that--though life may not ever be as "good as new again," it can be mended, strengthened patched a little. It's wiser to tell a broken heart that some peace may come creeping back at last, that a faint gleam of light may shine in the horrible darkness.
