Subject Change Is Necessary In Trophy Debate Sophomores and Freshmen Will Quarrel Over Cancellation Of European War Debt Politics may yet be politics and have no place in college activities, but a recent change in politics necessitated the selection of a new subject for the Sophomore-Freshman annual debate, which is a usual event in the Hausman Trophy competition. The subject as chosen by the Student Council some time ago was concerned with the benefiits ! to be derived by the South as a whole from the adoption of the Noj Crop Cotton Plan, as passed by the Louisiana State Legislature. Since that time, however, the Legislature has decided to favor merely a modified plan, so the Sophomores and Freshmen will decide instead whether the United States j should cancel her war debts. To allow sufficient time for adequate preparation, the Student Council has postponed the date from December 7 to December 10. The public speaking classes on that day will be cancelled in lieu of this annual event. An agreement was reached between the two classes whereby the j Sophomore class elected to defend I the affirmative side of the question and the Freshman class the: negative. To date, the Sophomores have not definitely decided upon their representatives, while the Freshmen have their two men, Harold Herman and Edward J. Driscoll,! already hard at work with vic-i torious efforts. Loyola Pastor Begins Memoirs With History Rev. Albert J. Biever, S.

Members of Columbia University's football squad so resented the uncomplimentary statements which the Spectator had printed about them that several were tempted to "beat up" the entire staff of the paper, but restrained themselves to the extent of ordering the editor to refrain from making further criticisms. The Spectator, however, declined to back-track, and, on the contrary, printed numerous statements in support of Harris' contention that "honest professionalism" should replace "furtive hypocrisy" in the management of football teams. The editor also renewed his offer to trade the Columbia eleven "for a nice little place in the country, with cows and chickens." He originally had charged that "probably 80 per cent of the men who play college football in the bigger institutions are semi-professional athletes hired by assistant coaches who make annual pilgrimages to prep schools," and that the game itself has become "a professional racket." As a reply to the threats he had received, Harris published more than a column of comments from other university editors in the East, most of whom either com- j mended him for the position he' had taken or agreed with the j broad thesis that professionalism should be eliminated from college athletics, although the Pennsylva- FLASH The student selling the greatest number of tickets in the Olympic Fund Campaign will teceive a 10% commission of the entire amount collected it was annovn.ed late Thursday night by George Le perl, chairman of the Olympic Committee.
