Salaries Won't Solve College Grid Problem "Along' about this time of year, when trie last football player's lust bruise has been piit aVay for the winter in ' a solution of arnica, the nation always gives itself over to an argument about the ethics of big-lime college football. Just no'w the argument is going oft' on a new tack. It is being argued Hint colleges ought to put their football players openly on the jwyroll, to got - away from the hypociisy of nn "amateur" sport in which the hulk of the gtfirs are secretly getting paid for their services. Such a step would at least have the virtue of frankness. But before we get too enthusiastic about it, we might pause to reflect that it would leave the biggest problem of all completely unsolved. That problem is the almost insoluble one of trying to reconcile a million-dollar sport with that cloistered and intellectual atmosphere which is supposed to be a college's icason for existence. * * * A college or a university is a place for intellectual inquiry, for advanced study, for the pursuit of pure learning. To fexceptioiially able young peo-> pie, it offers a chance 16 inibibe the learning of the past, to get the habit of unbiased inquiry, to approach life's . problems reasonably instead of emotionally. That is its sole excuse for exisc- ~ence. Marry it to a great professional entertainment enterprise and you get a hodge-podge that will he out of joint no matter how relentlessly you work to strip it of hypociisy. And college football, as it exists today, is a great professional entertain-- ment enterprise. It has thrown up , dozens of ball park's larger than those built by the professional baseball leagues. It has taken a major place in jhp nation's amusement piogram. It '' counts its gate receipts by the million. It relies for its support on the 1 public at*large; bids for that support precisely as do boxing, baseball and wrest. ling,- and maintains' an elaborate organization ofv well-paid coaches, trainers, scouts, managers, and publicity' men to keep the wheels turning. A \enture of that kind is a profes- sional sport, no" matter what we choose to call it. Unquestionably, the air would be' cleiu'ccl if the colleges admitted the professionalism, openly paid the performers uccoi ding to their drawing power, nrid stopped talking'in- muted terms about amateurism. But.the tail : would still b'e wagging' the dog. College football as it exists today is merely' a symptom of our failure to' understand wind a college i.s supposed to be'. If we continue to look on tlic college as a glorified country club, where raw youth is taught how to wear clothes, is given an urbane polish, and is prepared for a bond salesman's success, we can't hope to take the contradictions out of the college; football' picture. —Bruce Catton. More .Orchids To CCC One of the valuable by-products of the CCG program seems to have been a great gain in the-campaign to conserve wild life resources of Amei ica Director Robert Fcchncr reports that the CCC; work actually has helped the conserya'tion program to .such extent that /certain species of migiatoiy birds, supposedly doomed to extinction, now are expected to survive <md increase in numbers. The GCC, for instance, has .helped the II. S. Biological Survey to expand nnJ 1 develop a nation-wide sys- tcm of wild life refuges. ]'t has helped other government seivices to .set aside wilderness areas lor' gan.e It luis aided in federal wild life eensubeb, has improved fishing conditions, hab fed anrivwls and birds in cold weathei and, by its reforesting activities, has provided a vast amount of iVmch- nifcded cover for wild life. Just one more reason for willing the- CCC down as one of the very best) of the' NevV Deul experiments! AVEDN^SiDAI?,' Ifs An III Wind . . . A queer quirk of the motor tiaftte problen 1 ! is the fact that the tPWest accjdents take place at times when conditions on the highway are' woibt An advance taste of winter weather— snow, sleet and cold — swept over part of the middle west' recently , and immediately traffic accident hguies dropped almost out of sight. The roads were icy', visibility was bad, it was perilously easy to put a car into a skid— but for several days no "one was killed • and hardly any bei- ious accidents were recorded. The explanation is clear. When streets and roads- are slippery, motorists drive carefully. They are will- 1 ing to spend an extra five minutes oil the highway, for the sak'e of safely. It is only' when the' path is> clear and the road offers no dangei 1 that they hurry, fake chances— and kill each other. ^^ Love Is blind, but marriage Is 11 good eye tonic... love ofters no real • guarantee for nur- ricd — Prof.' EcUVurri .
