be awarded the winning team in
the tourney, which Is sponsored
annually by the Woman's Athletic Association. The first round
must be played off by April 28.
Sororities may conduct matches
within their groups to determine
the team to take part in the
tournament, Miss Averill said.
The game of baseball, the national pastime, Is celebrating Its ninety-secon- d
birthday. Baseball had its
inception in the little town of
New York. Abner Double-da- y
of Green Select School
made the first diagram of
a baseball diamond, drawing a
stick through the dust to indicate
what sports writers have come to
call th "paths" and to show the
With a pencil, he ithen made
notes on rules for the game, which
he named "baseball." Abner Graves,
one of the youths who took part in
the game under Doubleday s direc
tion, lived to tell this to an official
commission appointed to study the
origin of the game, in 1917.
The first diamond now is known
as Doubleday eld. All local games
are played there. The villlage owns
the property and uses part of it as
Not until seven years after
Doubleday drew his outline was the
first game played between rival
teams for a prize. That contest
took place at Hoboken, N. J., June
19, 1846, with the "New York Nine"
playing the Knickerbocker, which
had introduced the game to New
York City in the previous year. The
"prize" was a dinner. The "New
York Nine" won.
Abner Doubleday apparently
hardly regarded the outlining of
the first baseball diamond as an
episode In his life. He subsequently was graduated from West Point
and entered regular Army service.
As a captain of artillery, he sighted the first gun fired by the Union
forces during the, Fort Sumter
fighting at the outbreak of the War
Between the States. Later, as a
Major General, he was in command
of the Union Army at the close of
the first day's fighting at the battle
of Gettysburg. He died at Mend-haN. J., In 1893.
Abner Graves, Doubleday's biographer as regards the Incident
of the first ball field, was a
fellow student at Green's Select
School and became a mining engineer at Denver Col. It was his
description of Doubleday's diamond
that first led the official commission to consider Cooperstown, as
the cradle of the national game.

Behind a Kernel editorial of sev
eral weeks ago, lurked the possible
suggestion that unjust criticism on
the camnus be done away with.
The massed intelligence of an entire
fraternity or sorority could think
of no more useless, hopeless topic
for nn editorial.
We're all Jealous, more or less,
and If we bottle ourselves up,
it Is with the apparent presumption
that a Kernel editorial Is more
persuasive than human nature.
Which is a reckless statement to
say the least.
Any attempt to Interfere with
expression of unjustified opinion will
end in rniiurc, ana even lr it accidentally succeeds, it is certain to

constructive criticism Is snubbed for

And, after all, It is much too
late for an editorial to seek to
change human nature.
Criticism Is one of the prerequi
sites for prominence. Without it,
one seldom can become known. So,
bring on the criticism, and If we
can't stand up under It, we don't
belong in any campus office.
PROGRESS AND STUDENTS
One department on the campus
is not increasing In number of students enrolled. U anything, some
of the courses taught by one of the
professors in this department are
being taken by fewer students every
year. Perhaps in the dean's office
