Dr. James H. Kirkland, Chancellor of Vanderbilt University, is quoted by The Associated Press, as giving a few views on " athletic ability" as " a factor in student value."

Chancellor Kirkland's views are interesting and command thought.

The Chancellor, now in his forty -third year as head of Vanderbilt, says that " when scholarships are passed around, and when loans are made, the student's athletic ability should be taken into account." In order that these loans and scholarships shall not be stamped " salaries for athletic services, " Chancellor Kirkland proposes that their distribution be approved by c olleg e faculty members and trustees as well as the officers of athletic conferences. Chancellor Kirkland, the correspondent points out, is one of those who believe that the giving of money to football play ers by alumni " can' t be stopped absolutely." " But the college can discourage such p ; actice and can refuse to become a part of it," he says. " What are you going to do in a case like this?" the Chancellor asked. " An alumnus comes around to you and says he's g oing to ) give $100 to Tom Brown or Jim Smith of your football team. Maybe you would tell the alumnus not to do it. But if the $ 100 were being offered a non-athletic student, would you give the same advice?"

HOMECOMING Thousands of Tulane alumni are here today, drawn from all sections of Amer~ ica for the great Homecoming celebra~ tion. We hope that you have enjoyed every minute of the time spent "back home" with us and that you 'll enjoy the foot~ ball game today. It is the first invasion of the famed Red Raiders of Colgate into the South. Coach Andrew Kerr's teams are known throughout the nation for their strength and cleverly executed plays, involving great handling of the ball. We salute Colgate today! Let's have a big cheer for the Red Raiders, win, lose or draw.

Dr. Kirkland believes that the "mental attitude of a student body toward athletics is more wholesome" than that of the public and most of the alumni.

"If football ever becomes solely a college game again all this so-called subsidizing of players will be eliminated," he declared. " As the game is accepted now many of t he evils can be eliminated if all transactions involving the lending of money or giving of scholarships to players are brought into the open ." Chancellor Kirkland plans to discuss his ideas at the December meeting of the Conference . That will be to the good of intercollegiate athletics. Chancellor Kirkland, like most other university authorities, is anxious to maintain a high plane in collegiate sports and to eliminate real evils where they may exist, and at the same time openly give meritorious scholarships. 3

Col ga te spirit, a by-word on the gridiron, makes up for lack of student numbers. The little giant of the North can show an old -time roster worthy of any g reat university. Tow-heade d little Ellery Huntington, elusive as a Scot c h mist, inspiring as an evangelist, ranks with th e great quarterba cks of all time . Reared on the Colgate C a mpus, Ellery e arly dete rmined to win a name for himself in football. He practiced for hours p e gging a ball at a spot on his cellar door. He read books on quarterback strategy and quizzed himself daily on choice of plays_ Once in college Huntington proceeded to turn theory into fact, Larry Bankha r t. among the smartest of coaches, c ould pi c k no flaws in Huntington's generalship. Huntington ran through Syracuse and Yale like a will-o-the -wisp. Oc. Anderson, a 10-second man, twice went to : town against Yale in 1915 from points beyond midfield _ He could hit a handkerchief with a pass at 30 yards from the dreaded Bankhart's spread form a tion. Anderson never dropped a punt during four years and never played one safe either, Eddie Tryon ranks with Kaw of Cornell as the greatest mud-runner football has known_ On a wet track Tryon was even better than on a dry field , which is saying plenty. Eddie slithered through a swamp to beat Princeton in 1925, but his p e ak performance came at Ohio State's expense in 1923 when he thrice dashed to touchdowns in the wake of Tiny Welsh's interference, An underslung type, Tryon kept his feet like one of those lea"'-weighted celluloid dolls _ Slant sho';'ldered, bow-legged Walter Runge was the greatest blocking back in Colgate annals. As a take-out man he ranks with Hardwick of Harvard,

Runge's lethal interfer e nce made Riley Castleman's fame as an open field runner. Against Dartmouth in 1904 Runge took o ut three men on one play, bobbing to his feet each time to keep ahe ad of Castleman Colgate boasts such steamroller fullbacks as Macaluso, Irwin, Lyon, Shaughnessy and Swartout, but Hank Cillo was the hardest driver of the lot_ Gillo could do the century in 1 I seconds, and thus cash in on his bovine rush e r_ He played 40 minutes against Syracuse in 1919 with a broke n collarbone strapped in place_ Charlie Soleau, most versatile of the Kerr era backs, handled the ball like a juggler. Leslie Hart was a flash at turning the end, Colgate is noted for its mighty tackles-West, Abell, Brooks, Horning and Huntington_ Belford West epitomized the virtues of an ideal tackle_ His foot work and use of hands was beyond criticis m _ He could punt a nd pass and place-kick like a quarterback_ Against Syracuse in 1915 he booted a 52 ¡ yard field goal. Despite a bandage d knee he made the All-America two years runnin g _ Tuffy Abell, broad a s a barn door, did not look his 6 feet_ Fast, despite his huge bulk, he could punt and place-kick_ He split Yale's uprights from the 42 -yard line in 1915 _ Jim Welsh, called Tiny, because he weighed 215 pounds, was a squat, thickset fellow, who popped out of line to lead interference as nimbly as a cat scales a fence _ Jim was ' the best open field blocker in Colgate history_ He was adept at place-kicking, too. It's just an old Colgate custom for line men to boot the field goals_ Bob Smith, Ke r r's torpedo-like interfere r, stood out above the modern gods . John Orsi, a second Oosterbaan at snatching passes, was the hardest driver among Colgate ends_ Winne Anderson of recent fame had relaxed elbows and hands that gave with a thrown ball. Fred Peterson, king-pin of Colgate's centers, almost murdered Ketcham of Yale in 1913 and fought Syracuse to the finish on two sprained ankles_ This Swede was tough _ Glen Peters of the 1933 team had an even wider offensive range than P e terson_ Copyrighted 1935 by W_ W.

Colgate-Giant of the Chenango By DEXTER H. TEED, (Director of Publicity, Colgate University)

When the Greenies of Tulane and the Red Raiders of Colgate lineup for the first kickoff today, and the 22 men on the field swing into the smashing action of the gridiron game, it will be the first time a Colgate team will have played in New Orleans, and it will be the first time the Raiders have engaged an eleven in the deep South.

In educational circles Colgate is kn o wn because of the renowned "Colgate Plan" of education. It is based upon the fundamental thought that the best way to prepare a student for his work in the world is to give him a broad foundation of learning, and then give him the work in which he expects to specialize. Thus, as a freshman, the student covers the entire range of human knowledge in survey courses covering such subj ects as philosophy, religion, languages, literature, sciences and allied subjects. Later he will specialize, and tutors will work with him. He is given the utmost freedom in plotting his own educational advancement. Initiative is encouraged.

Down in the South not too much is known about Colgate, except that the tradition of having good football teams is well-established. Since 1906 Colgate teams have been beating some of the best in the game. Since Andy Kerr came to Colgate as coach in 1929 the Raiders have been rated at the top, or close to the top, nationally.

But Colgate is more than that. Being a small college, situated in the village of Hamilton, in the Chenango Hills, it has generated a spirit known as "Colgate Spirit-" which is something intangible, something that quickens the pulses and makes students cheer a little louder, playa little harder and do their jobs better. It's a tradition at Colgate. Good football teams have been the rule. rather than the exception. The first great team operated in 1913, when Ellery Huntington, a great quarterback, led his eleven to a 16-6 victory over Yale. Ellery was AllAmerica quarterback that year. From then onward the football team was at the top or close to the top in the East. In 1 91 6 Colgate was undisputed national champion, with a 15-0 victory over Illinois, the Big Ten champion, as the proof of the team's greatness. Three Colgate players made Walter Camp' s All-America team. Football dropped down in the World War years, but it has come back stronger than ever under Andy Kerr. It fits in with the tradition of the type of manhood that is developed at Colgate. All athletics are on a high plane at Colgate. Losing teams are seldom produced. Since William A. Reid came as graduate manager in 1919, the scope of intercollegiate athletics has been broadened and now teams seek to play Colgate in all sports. Reid , as coach of baseball, has turned out some fine nines. Until 1928 he coached basketball and was uniformly successful. The intramural program is highly developed, and more than 90 per cent of the students en-

What about Colgate University? It is not well-known down in the South. But it is 116 years old, having been founded in 1819 by 1 3 men, who pooled their 1 3 dollars and started the institution that was to grow slowly until the late 1880's, when Dr. James C. Colgate, an alumnus of a few years before, spent much of his time and money building up the modern university. Since then he has been patron and president of the board of trustees. A New York banker, he has given lavishly of his energies as he has watched the university grow from a few hundred students and a few buildings to the modern university of splendid physical equipment and more than 1000 students. He is known as "the father of Colgate." When he resigned as president of the board of trustees a year ago, he was honored as " the man who made Colgate." Colgate is a college for boys only. It is situated in Central New York, 30 miles from U tica and 40 miles from Syracuse. Its president, George Barton Cutten, is a football enthusiast. He once was All-America center at Yale. He doesn't believe in deemphasis. He believes in all kinds of athletics and football is his first love. F ootbaIl is a typical American game, he believes, and should be fostered as such. Colgate has s trict eligibility rules for all sports. Every year some of the best players are barred because of scholastic difficulties. This year one of the best backs was lost. Students who do not do their work do not play football at Colgate, despite President C utten' s love of the game.

THE GRIDIRON ROUNDUP The Score to Date: Picked








Your Editor had some difficulty in quiet- . ing Mr. Demon Dopester this week. Old Demon seemed to have caught the spirit of the Homecoming and instead of selecting the "toughest dozen" games of this week to prognosticate, the woozy old fellow wanted to go out on the limb and try a hand at naming the winners in twenty-four gamse. Your Editor glanced over the selections and found the Demon as reckless as ever. He had really dug up two dozen games in which an element of doubt might be found. Since Demon has to take the "rap" on the selections, we decided to present his list, without guarantees. (You might check your hand against that of Demon). Here they are: NOTRE DAME-OHIO STATE- This is the one that is worrying lots of folks but not me. "Show 'em no mercy" Schmidt won't show any to the Ramblers. I have just discovered that neither of these teams have been beaten or tied. That makes it simple. I predict that one of the teams will join the beaten ranks today and it won't be Ohio State. I calls that going right out on the branches. CALIFORNIA - U. C. L. A.-Here's another one that is bothering some of the other experts but which I claims don't annoy me at all. Despite the fact that neither the Cal Bears or the Uclans have been tied or beaten, I simply awards the verdict to Mr. Bill Spaulding's Bruins of Los Angeles. (Eds. Note : We are pleased to see that Demon at least knows where U. C. L. A. is located.) Now that those two set-ups are dished away, let's get down to serious business:

MISS. STA TE-ARMY-The Maroons of Mississippi State will be teed up high for this one and may kick the dope bucket. Yet, I am going to stick with the probably overconfident Cadets. Major Ralph Sasse may give the Point another lesson in football though at that. If Miss. State comes through it'll be the biggest victory of the year for the football forces of Dixie since Army, unbeaten and untied,is a strong challenger for the national title. INDIANA-IOWA-The Hoosiers showed power in the first half against Ohio State but it must be remembered that Schmidt's Buckeyes were probably under wraps awaiting the Irish challenge. Two votes for Iowa. MINNESOTA - PURDUE - Purdue, unscored upon until last week when they lost in a shocking upset to Carnegie, will be back and really tough. Bernie Bierman's Gophers are badly battered. Still we cast % vote for the Gophers. PRINCETON-NA VY-The Navy is better than most anyone thinks and conceivably may trip Nassau. We're riding only with the favorites, where we can find 'em, and so it's one rousing vote for Princeton. STANFORD - SANTA CLARA - Anything may happen here. Santa Clara is strong enough to beat the Cardinals if they are wobbly after the hard Washington game. % vote for Stanford. TEMPLE-MICHIGAN STATE-This one will trip plenty of "pickers" since it is positively a natural. Temple gets my vote although a coin decided the decision.

NORTH CAROLINA-N. C. STA TEHere's a dog-eat-puppy game. Chapel Hill is general headquarters for the State University system in Nawth Ca'lina just as Berkeley is headquarters in California. In this case, however, Carl Snaveley's T arheels will beat back Hunk Anderson's W olfpack but it will be close.

DARTMOUTH-YALE - Dartmouth has never beaten Yale. Every year it seems they go into the game an even choice but somehow fail to come through. On the basis of past scores, Yale by one vote to continue the tradition. (Continued on page 13) I I

THE GRIDIRON ROUNDUP ( Continued from page II )

ALABAMA-KENTUCKY-The Crimson Tide seems to have broken the "on Saturday-off Saturday" jinx and get two votes.

DUKE - TENNESSEE Two up-anddowners in a game that looks even from every angle. Tennessee by a straw.

ARKANSAS-TEXAS A. & M.-The Razorbacks by one squeal. . GEORGIA-FLORIDA - Georgia's Bulldogs will take out their vengeance on the Alligators.

L. S. U.-AUBURN-Auburn has the stuff to win if L. S. U. gets off balance momentarily. Yet, the Plainsmen may crack after the strenuous schedule to date with a small squad. One vote for the Baton Rouge Tigers.

PITT-FORD HAM-The Panthers to pester the Rams in a rough way.

PENN-MICHIGAN-Michigan seemS improving each week and they'll be entertaining on their home lot. Still, one vote for Penn's prize sophomores.

BAYLOR-T. C. U.-Another of those Southwest puzzlers. The Horned Frogs after a great game.

GEORGIA TECH-V ANDY-This is the 'steenth toss-up of "the day. The Commodores get the nod.

MARYLAND-VIRGINIA-The Old Liners of College Park to trim the Cavaliers. NEBRASKA-MISSOURI steam roller is going again. Missouri.

NORTHWESTERN - ILLINOIS The Wildcats of Evanston but not by more than a nose.

Dana Bible's Too bad for

SYRACUSE-PENN STATE-Penn State played a real ball game last week and Syracuse looked just fair in taking Brown. Still, one vote for Syracuse.

S. M. U.-TEXAS-Mattie Bell's Mustangs will know they have been through fire and brimstone and may fail to meet the test. One quivering vote for S. M. U.

HAT makes football teams fight? Popular belief has it that it is dressing room oratory that wins games; at half time, with one team trailing by a touchdown or so, you'll frequently hear Joe Fan observe sagely to Mrs. Fan or anyone else within earshot: "You just wait and see! Good ole 'Pop' Schmalz'll give those boys a talkin-to they won't forget in a hurry. They'll be a different team the next half." Dressing room oratory is all right in its way, but more than one senior footblller has confessed that it merely bored him, and that he grew to be critical of the coach's verbal pyrotechnics. Smart coaches recognize that constant dripping doesn't wear away the hardest stone, so they resort, when the occasion warrants, to shrewd stratagem. One of the shortest "fight talks" on record is credited to the late Knute K. Rockne, whose "block. Block, BLOCK!" was the standard closing period of most dressing room talks. It was at half time. The Notre Dame team, strangely lethargic, was trailing and, what was more, seemed too pcplcss to do anything about it. Rockne entered the train-

f'~1! eo"t~RI.

ing quarters, surveyed the listless players with a look of withering scorn and, in two words that spoke volumes, said "Fighting Irish!" And left the room. Notre Dame won. Harry Mehre, coach of the University of Georgia. fired his team up to beat Yale, 26 to 7, Yale's only defeat in 193 J, in a game in which the Yale Bulldogs were favored over the Georgia Bulldogs. Sensing that oratory would do little or no good. Mehre stood in the center of the training quarters with his hands on his hips, looked the squad over and said, in tones of chagrin: "Well, boys, we're just a one dollar game in New Haven." The southerners took the field fighting mad, shook Homer Key loose for 75 yards and a touchdown. and routed the Elis. Fight talks have their comic side, too. There is the case of the player, said to have been at the Naval Academy, who became so aroused by the between-halves fireworks set off by the coach that he ran, blind with rage, into a concrete pillar in the training quarters and fractured his nose. Then there was the :09.8 sprinter-Bill Alexander, of Georgia Tech, tells the story-who was groomed all season for a touchdown run in the "big game" of the year. Clad in track scanties, he crouched on the sidelines, awaiting the psychological moment. ' It came. The coach gave him a few last words of advice, slapped him on the back and pushed him toward the field. The high-strung lad sped like ,a deer to the sidelines, tripped over the linesmen's ' chain and stepped into a water bucket, breaking ' his ankle!

The year 19 35 will go into the record books as perhaps the dizziest season of Southern football

To further substantiate these beliefs, we might point out in the case of Auburn that the Plainsmen already have won four games this year compared with two victories for the 1934 season. Georgia has scored four victories this year compared with two up to the same time a year ago. Georgia Tech has won four games this fall contrasted with a single victory during last season. Kentucky has won no more games than in the same period twelve months ag-o but has been more impressive in its games this fall, with the exception of the Auburn contest. L. S. U. has been just as impressive as last fall if not even more consistent. Ole Miss and Mississippi State have given concrete evidence that they are no longer a doormat for any opposition. Vanderbilt. despite three defeats, has left 'no doubt but that its team is improved considerably over last year.

history. "How come?" Is it because football IS of lower caliber than during the past decade when each year two or three outstanding teams of the Southeastern Conference or Southern Conference went into the November stretch unbeaten and untied, battling for




leadership? Is it because the strong teams of other years have failed to develop in the Spring and hit championship stride in the early Fall? We don't thing so. We are of the conviction that football in the Southeastern Conference is better today than ever before and that proof of the assertion is the fact that hitherto unimpressive teams have jumped into giant-killing roles. Perhaps there is no team in the Conference this year with the strength of the 1934 Alabama team or the 193 I Tulane team or the 1928 Georgia Tech array. That is a point that can' t be determined, regardless of pro and con arguments. Alabama's team just at this time seems to have great power. Let's take the conference as a whole, one team at a time : Alabama-Perhaps a s hade down just now from 1934 strength but gaining momentum weekly. Auburn-Greatly improved over last year. L. S. U.-Improved over last year. Georgia-Improved over last year. Georgia Tech-Greatly improved over last year. Florida-About the same as last year or a shade weaker. Kentucky-Improved over last year. Mississippi State-Greatly improved over last year. Ole Miss-Improved over last year. Vanderbilt-Greatly improved over last year. Tennessee-Weaker than last year. Sewanee-About the same as last year. Tulane-Not as strong as last year, due to lo ss of eighteen lettermen from 1934 team. Lacking in the experience of last year's great team. Those are statements that we feel are based on obvious facts, principally the results of games played to date.

The Southwest Conference has had a somewhat similar s ituation to our present one for a number of years. The same has been true of the "Big Ten." It is a new experience for us. There h ave been few weak football "sisters" in the Big Ten or the Southwest Conference and consequently they have seldom survived a season with one team standing out greatly over the others. When a Big Ten team played a schedule of six Conference games, they usually can figure on five tough ones and perhaps six in the lot. The same has been true of the Southwest Conference. Up until this year, that has not always been the case in the Southeastern Conference and still is not true of the Southern Conference. The two Mississippi institutions, Sewanee and often Auburn or Kentucky, have been unable to offer serious competition to the major teams. Those days seem gone forever with Mississippi State bumping over Alabama , Ole Miss trimming teams here and there, and Auburn and Kentucky giving- and taking with the best of them. For instance, Kentucky's great game against powerful Ohio State was one of the best of the year in the intersectional competition.

It all boils down to the fact that we may not have so many teams to send to the Rose Bowl as in the past but at any rate we'll see better football during our regular nine and ten game schedules which, after a ll, is more important. 22


THE GOOD OLD DAYS Here's a gathering of Tulane University alumni and faculty photographed in the good year, 1900. Sharlee, and you, Mary Jane. The assembly was photographed in front of the medical college building on Canal Street.

Maybe you're there,

Two distinguished alumni of the Tulane University of Louisiana were honored at the 1935 Homecoming by induction into Omicron Del~ ta Kappa for outstanding services to their alma mater. Mr. Phelps of New Or~ leans, and Mr. Frith of Lake Charles, La., were selected ESMOND PHELPS

by the O. D. K., national honorary fraternity , as alum~ ni whose loyal and untiring services to the University merited the honor. The custom of honoring outstanding alumni at the Homecoming was inaugu~ rated by Omicron Delta Kap~ pa last year when Dr. Hardy H. Smith of Fort Smith, Ark., was inducted.

COLGATE COACHES AND REW KERR, Head Coach at Colgate University, has directed the destinies of Colgate football for the past six seasons. During that time he has turned out six of the finest 'teams in the history of the University. Kerr has had a wide experience as a coach, having filled that position at Washington and Jefferson, Pittsburgh, and S tanford Universities previous to coming to Colgate.

and his wide experience should do much in moulding another fine forward wall for the Red Raiders. JACK ROURKE, trainer of the football team, has been at Colgate more than 20 years. Athletes conditioned by him have gone into games fit and ready for the fray. One of h is greatest contributions has been as a builder of moraleand if anybody doubts that he has plenty of wit, humor and stories, call on him in the wintergre en-scented trainer's room .

JOHN ORSI is servmg his fourth year as varsity end coach. He was captain of the 1931 Red Raiders and received All-American honors at the close of that season on the All-American Board of Football's annual team. He was one of the best ends ever developed at Colgate and his coaching of the fine wingmen of last year is ample proof of his ability as a tutor.

gage in some sport. Athletics are a part o f Colgate. There is no de-emphasis. There won't be any. Distinguished alumni of Colgate include : Chief Justice Charles Evans Hug hes of the Supreme Court ; Dr. Harry Emerson Fosdick, pastor of the Riverside church , in New York ; Morris Hindus, distinguished writer on Russia, whose book, "Humanity Uprooted," is considered a classic; Ray Fosdick, secretary of the League of Nations ; Dr. William H . Crawshaw, authority on literature and author ; Dr. Bernard C. Clausen, disting uished Pittsburgh pastor and writer on religious subjects; George W. Cobb, former advertising manager of the American Can Company-and many others.

]. LESLIE HART captained the Colgate eleven of 1930 and is also serving . his fourth year as backfield coach . H e received All-American mention three years ago and was regarded as one of the finest kickers and passers in the country. His coaching had much to do last year with the smooth execution of the Raider's air attack.

The Colgate tradition and spirit is symbolized in " Alma Mater," which has words like these: "When through thy valleys, Fair Chenango, twilight falls,

ROBERT GILLSON played three years of varsity football at Colgate before graduating in 1930, and was one of the finest linemen in the country in his final year. Following this he played three seasons of professional football with the Brooklyn Dodgers and coached the line at Middlebury in 1932. This is his third year as line coach at Colgate

Bringing its silence to our college halls. In that happy moment love for Alma Mater swells, And the heart, out-pouring, of her glory tells. Colgate, Alma Mater, fairest theme of all our lays. Colgate, Alma Mater, ever blest thy days. " 30
