I CHICAGO GRADUATE IS HONORED IN F Aa� WEST E. o. SiuoD, of Class of '93 Made Professor of EducatiOD at Reed CoUqe, Portlu�, OregoD. FOUNDED SOUTH SIDE ACADAMY Leaves Position as Head of Educa­ tiozial Department at , Washington. Edward Octavius Sisson, professor of pedagogy and head of the depart­ ment of education at the University of Washington, a member of the first class to graduate from the University, has been appointed professor of edu­ cation at the new Reed college at Portland. Oregon. He will begin his work September of next year. Mr. Sisson was born at Gateshead, England, in 1869. He attended the Morpeth Royal Grammar School in preparation for the English universi­ ties, where he held a scholarship from 1878 to 1882. In that year he went with his parents to Manhattan, Kansas, and there attended the State Agricultural College. 111' 1886, at the age of sev­ enteen, he graduated with the degree of S. B.

In 1894 the school he had founded be­ <:ame affiliated with the University of Chicago. Former �dent of Bradley In 1897, when Bradley Polytechnic Institute was established at Peoria, Illinois, with an endowment of two million . dollars, Mr. Sisson was rec­ ommended by President Harper of the University of Chicago for the position as first Director of the Institute. For the 'next six years he laid the founda­ tions and completely organized the new school. It was a pioneer in the great field of industrial education which has come into such prominence during the past few years. The I'Il'­ stitute was also a preparatory school and Junior College,' in affiliation with the University of Chicago. In 1903, during a leave of absence, Mr. and Mrs. Sisson spent the sum­ .mer in England, and the following year at the UniverSity of Berlin, where ·Mr.. Sisson continued his studies .. Later 'he made a thorough inspection of . German schools and school systems. As Mr. Sisson's dom­ inallt interest came to be' in the col­ lege field of education, he �signed his position as Director of the Brad­ ley Polytechnic Institute and contjn­ ned his studies in philosophy and edu­ cation at Harvard UniVersity. There in 1905, he received the degree of Ph. B. He was the .first man to receive a doctorate in Education from Har­ yard University. Tfte following' year he was assistant professor of educa­ tion in the University of Illinois, ami has since 'been head of the department of pedagogy of the University of Washington. In 1908 he held a posi­ tion as lecturer in education in the Harvard summer school.· How at WublDctOD During the year 1908-10, Mr. Sisson was president of the educational coun­ cil of the Washington Educational Union.

In an impromptu swimming match arranged by Director White yesterday afternoon, a team of two men repre­ senting the University Freshmen de­ feated the two-man team of Univer­ sity High school by a score of 19 to 12. Ray White and Arthur Dixon rep­ resented University High, and Robert White and Philip Mallen, the Univer­ sity Freshmen. According to the pro­ gram each man had to compete in . each of the four events. While the University High swimmers proved their superiority in the plunge they were no match for Mallen and Rob­ ert White in the other events. Mallen Wins Two Events. Mallen won the 40 and 100 yard swims. In the first he was closely contested by Ray White of U. High. He won the 100 yard swim in 1.13. I n the plunge for distance the Fresh­ man entrant was disqualified for swimming under water and the event went to Dixon. The Freshmen won the relay of 80 yards in 44 seconds.

December 12 is the day set for the first Pow Wow banquet of the year .. All students intending to be present ·have been requested to give their names to Donald Delaney or to any member of the program committee before Saturday night. Any Fresh­ men in the University will be wel­ comed to this banquet whether 'Or not he is a member of the club. This is the report. made by' the program committee at the regular meeting of the Pow Wow yesterday afternoon in Cobb 8B.· A short busi­ ness session was held in which it was decided that the custom of not ad­ mitting women to membership in the club should be continued. A com­ mitteeman was appointed to obtain from the buildings and grounds de­ partment a permit to use the same room for all the regular club meet­ ings. Heretofore there has been con­ siderable delay occasioned by conflicts ' in rooms and it was thought advis- , able to have a definite understallding with the University authorities. . After the business meeting an in­ formal debate was held on the sub­ ject: "Resolved, That the fifteenth amendment should be repealed," Speeches were made on both sides of the question, 'but the pfedominating opinion seemed to be' in favor of the negative. Prominent in the debate were McCarthy, Swan, Parnass, and Watkins. SENIORS TO DANCE IN REYNOLDS CLUB .

Harvard. won two places, and. the others are given to the -Army, 'Navy and Carlyle. The interesting point in: Mr. Ca.mp's selection to a Western man is the fact that it seems to have been made with­ out consideration of the worth' of Western players. Of the 33 men who were selected for the three elevens, only five represent the West. There can be no doubt that Camp tries to ·be fair in his selection, and yet it is natural that sectional prejudices, per­ haps unconsciously, exhibits itself. Camp has little opportunity to watch the work of the men who play in the West. Seldom does he witness an im­ portant contest which migh give him an idea of the real and" not reported abilities of Western players. His se­ lection is not an All-America team· it is simply an All-Eastern team. And if an All-Western team c�uld line up against an All-Eastern 'team, there is every reason to believe that the West would play the East to a standstill. One realizes, of course, the diffi­ culty of selecting a team that will be truly representative of the East and West. It is impossible for any critic, no matter how great his football ge­ nius •. to. make such a .selection., He has at his command the names of sev­ eral hundred capable meDI to choose _fro�, players of real ability.

EDITORIAL Again an institution of the Univer­ sity is tlhe victim of misrepresentation in the city newspapers. I n The Chi­ cago Examiner and The Chicago Tribune �he � Club and the Press articles appearing yesterday morning, purporting to be reports of the Three Quarters club initiation Tuesday night represent gross and artless jug­ gling of the facts. The Tribune article makes much of the fact that the Three Quarters men were ousted from the Del Prado and the Blackstone hotels. Neither of thesehotels were visited. Instead the ment went to the LaSalle, the Great Northern, the Stratford. and others, in all of which places they were en­ thusiastically received. In no case did they go above the first floor. The article has it that they climbed toward the top floor of the Blackstone until they were booted out by the "men­ ials,." The article begins with a statement to the effect that the prohibition of the faculty was lifted, but that the 4'stern injunction" was violated. No �rohibition or injunction have exist­ ed. and the agitation on the part of the faculty for better management of the club bas been lived up to. It is interesting to note that there were 38, not 44 candidates, that they started out with the intentions of hav­ ing the initiations down town and did not conceive of the scheme after it was found "that the south side was too small." They alighted from the Illinois Central train at Randolph street and not at Van Buren. They were not urged by the conductor nor ordered to "beat it" by the Michigan avenue policemen. We do not attempt to belittle the reputations of either of these city papers. The misstatements are un­ doubtedly the faults of the .stud�nt rr porters who seem to have h�tle in­ terest in the facts of the stones re­ ported. In view of the rece�t agita­ tion against the less pleasing ele­ ments of the Three Quarters club such articles are doubt,. open to at­ tack and their authors liable to criti­ cism as working against the best in­ terests of Chicago. .

Editor The Daily Maroon: The misrepresentations in the daily papers Wednesday regarding the ini­ tiation of the 'Three Quarters club arouse in every member of that so­ ciety the utmost indignation, not only because the stories were' . in them­ selves untrue in nearly all particulars, but also because they "ere concocted by unpatriotic students of the Uni­ versity.

The rules for-bidding tackling below the knees and decreeing that the ball is dead when any part of a man ex­ cept his feet touches the ground when in the grasp of an opponent should be either modified or enforced. The game does not at present ant­ s��r the test of a true sporting propo­ sitiorr, It lacks a rule that eliminates. as far as possible. ties or disputes and rules that say the better team must' windecisively. Two years ago the RUl.es. Committee passed, by a small majority, a plan of game similar to that now most urged, but at a later meeting this was 'voted down.

If men in the back field follow the runner into the line he endeavors to go through. srine times out of ten they must. even if they keep their hands off him, eventually push him, for he is stopped when they are still running forward and they go against him. There was also too .much interfer­ ence in. the neutral zone on forward passing. It was rather strange that the officials' seemed �o be more in": tent upon this in the case of a kick than in the case of a forward pass, for the man receiving the pass is very apt to he bumped, erot hard, but sim­ ply by a man putting himself in his way, and it was seldom called ,by the officials. . All these. matters improved somewhat" toward the end of the' s�a­ son. but need considerable emphasis yet. The forward pass has taken no more prominent position than of old; in fact, in late games considerably less. I t has resulted in disaster on one or two occasions in contests that meant a good deal. I t has not ·been productive of any spectacular plays. The on side kick has been, as always; a matter of luck; that is, if the ball bounds straight the defensive. side secures possession of it easily and the' side on the attack has lost several yards on the kick. That is the differ­ ence between the long kick and the short one. If, on the other hand, the ball performs a freak antic and either jumps sidewise or hits on the end and bounds clear - over the defensive cm:an's head. the play results in a fine gain for the kicker's side, possibly even in a touchdown at very little expenditure of effort. But who can tell which way the ball will bound? Surely no sci­ entific study or daily practice can forecast the action of this leather sphere. Strange Things Happen Certainly there have 'been as many strange happenings "in the football world as among the individual play­ ers. The teams of the Middle West have he en inconsistent. :Minnesota showed the greatest strength as well as the greatest consistency, but was tied by Wisconsin in the final game. ·lfichigan 'has had many upsets, the most depressing having been the de- Shirt GIFT SUGGESTIONS Umbrella Tie HANSEN Cane Muffler Tie Ring Comb.

Chicago, after being defeated by Minuesota no less than 30 to 0, turned' about arid defeated Cornell; while Syracuse, defeated de­ cisively by Yale, checked the Carlyle Indians, who had defeated Pennsyl­ vania and Harvard! In other -words, in' the two greatest divisions in gen­ eral football, the East and the Middle West, there was such a total lack of consistency as to bri1l'g very forcibly home the' question ,whether quality can be developed under the present methods to an extent that may give some reasonable assurance of success. Games were played in both these sec­ tion-s, as well as the South and South­ west, that would indicate there is some truth in the statement of a very successful coach that if you threw �he \ ball around enough you could beat anybody. . .. On being asked tc{ define his mean­ ing he explaill'Cd that the chances were so strongly against a consistent suc­ cession of successful running plays-­ the rules rendering praotically aU the defense necessary-that the thing to do was to utilize as many downs as possible in giving chances both to his own side to secure the ball after a forward pass' and for the other side to make errors. On the last Saturday of the season, when everyone was waiting to place the final stamp of approval or disapproval on rules, teams, and individuals, came really the most depressing and unsatisfactory re­ sults-Brown was tied .by Trinity, Michigan was tied by Nebraska. Kan­ sas was tied by Missouri, Yale was tied by Harvard, while the Navy, with a weaker running attack. scored a field goal on the Army. That ending convinced a large majority that four downs are necessary to give a test of superiority. STEAM COIITROL Of HUMIDITY RmUCINB VALVES FOR AiR, : WATER, HOT WATER .

Speaking of the University Seal According to a news item which ap­ peared recently in a western daily, "Several seal cubs are on their way to the University of Washington, where they will enter the zoological department." The Worms May Tum. 1 t is rumored that the newly made members oi the Three Quarters club are seeking the man who wrote the article in yesterday's issue of The Daily Tribune on the initiation antics. And Then Oxford and Cambridge. Various authorities have it that Chicago will probably resume or be­ gin football relations next year with Cornell, Yale, Princeton, Army, Navy, Michigan, and other eastern and mid­ dle west teams. With the regular big eight games on hand the players will probably continue their practice through the Christmas vacation, and the resulting arrangements will un­ doubtedly necessitate discontinuing basketball. Mr. Stagg may also ar­ range games with Oxford, Cambridge, Berlin, Toronto, and California. The First Chance We Have Had. Minnesota was tied by Wisconsin in the recent football game Because the Gopher players did not wear shoes which would enable them to play with the greatest efficiency on the hard ground. Minnesota also failed to come in first in the cross country race at Iowa City because the men had to wear common canvas 'running shoes. Our personal opinion is that the Minnesota athletic department should appropriate some of that $21,- 658 to the purchase of proper athletic shoes.

Reed Col1ege began- its first year of instruction on September 18, 1911, in a building constructed by the Reed Institute in the city of Portland. The number of well-qualified candidates for admission to the first class was so much larger than was expected that the tentative plans announced for the first year of college work were aban­ cloned. Of the two hundred and six­ ty-three applicants for entrance, fifty were admitted to the freshman class. BreaJm Club Bowling Record. The Reynolds club bowling record of this year was broken Tuesday, when Storrs Baldwin rolled 267 in a game at 'the club alley. The prev­ ious record was held by George Faw­ cett, with a score of 258.

The first Junior-Senior champion­ ship hockey game, which took place yesterday on Greenwood field, was won by the Juniors with a score of 3 to 1. The playing was good, consid­ ering llhe poor condition of the field, on which the game was played. In the first half of the game the Juniors kept the ban down in the Senior strik­ ing circle most of the time but the Seniors defended their goal well, only letting the ball cross the goal line once, when Juliet Ames hit it on the fly. In the second half' of playing the Seniors braced up and kept the ball going down to the Junior half-back tine, from which it went down again to the Senior goal. Augusta Swawite made two goals during this hair. Dur­ ing the last five minutes of play N en Henry the Senior right wing, got the ball from the Juniors, dribbled it down the field, and passed it to Ella Spiering, who made a goal. The ball was then put in play once more at the center and was up at the Sen­ ior striking circle when the whistle for time was sounded. Miss Gertrude Dudley, the head of the women's athletic department, gave a dinner in Lexington hall at 6 for the members of the two teams and substitutes. Pay for what you get.
