It is pretty hard work for the av
erage democratic editor to say what
lie believes and not come in contact
with the kind of political (lope he .serves
up to his readers. In most cases
it is immensely ludicrous as was the
case of the World-IIerald Saturday
when it put up a Christmas greeting
to the public and told how swimmingly
. i 4 ...
everyiiung was going on in uus cuunuy
and how happy everybody ought to
lie, and then followed with an ed
itoriel trying to convey the impres
sion that the republican party was
responsible for the undesirable con
ditions which confronted us, or words
to that effect. It is a mighty hard
row that the average democratic
editor has to hoe, and the readers of
a democratic paper should try real
hard to believe what they write Is
true for it is brought forth with "groan
ing which cannot be uttered" and
is the cause of much sleepless nights,
unless one is used to it. One can do
most anything after they get used to
it, and the democratis editorial stunt
is one of them.
The business Men's Association
of Omaha have been putting th.iir
literature in plate form and offer
ing it free to publishers who would
use it but very few have accepted.
Now they are not only of
fering the plates free, but are willing
to pay a reasonable price in ad
dition for publishing them. This is
a greta inducement and a publisher
should not be blamed for accepting
this offer. A publisher has space in
his paper for sale. A merchant has
goods for sale, and a merchant would
be considered a fool who would not
sell any member of this association
any goods in his line. Why not a
publisher sell his space that he has
for sale Hut there is a principle in
volved. TheJIiteraturp referred to
is an attempt to prove that more
ilipior is sold in prohibition states
than in states where liouqr is sold
openly. They go farther and attempt
to show that the per cent of crime
is greater in prohibition states than
in states where liquor is sold openly,
They must offqr something that is
good andjfor this reason advocate a
Tigid enforcement of the laws we have
to regulate saloons. This is only a
pretense for it is obvious that their
money and inllucncc is used to shield
violaters of the law. Kvu-y case that
is brought up before the courts is
vigorously defended by the element
composing? the Business Men's :is

will help them in other ways. While
many believe that football is a brutal
sport and should be abandoned,
there arc still many who believe that
it should not. One thing is sure, it
is the college sport and there is no
other sport which causes the student
to work harder in his studies than
football for mighty few of them whoare
classed among the team or its assis
tants care to place themselves in a po
sition where they may loose out on
the sport because of failure in their
studies. It gives the school a cer
tain standing and the students of
the school get closer together and we
believe accomplish more because of
it. The editor of this paper is not
much of a football rooter. He glor
ies in the fact that he is a baseball
fan of the forty third degree and gets
"nutty" during the season when the
game is on in its warmest aspect
but we are willing to accord to the
lovers of football the same crazy en
thusiasm over that game that we
get over the great American game.
The only kick we have coining on
the football and baseball situation
at Nebraska university is because
they don't have a better team. They
have the material all right, and we
believe the proper man could get the
right results. Our motto in this as
in other things is "Push, not Knock."
Tomorrow is Christmas. How
many people are there in this broad
world who can truly say that they
hail with delight the fact that the
day is at hand. In the years which
have gone by we have been led to be
lieve that the .lay which should be
one of universal rejoicii g is to many
one of hardship.
To the youngster, who has no cares
hut those incident to childhood, who
has a good home and pleasant sur
roundings, the advent of Christmas
time is always a pleasure. However
to the child who has to spend Christ
mas day as he spends the other three
hundred and odd days of the year,
Christmas brings little enjoyment. As
he walksalong the street and looks into
the windows filled with the nice things
of life, and when on Christmas day
he sees his more fortunate playmates
enjoying all the pleasures which come
to them from the fact that they are
better situated, there is little to make
him hail with joy the git at day. It
therefore should be the aim of every
one who may have ever so lit t le t o spare
to add something to the pleasure of
the little fellow who has little to make
him feel that Christmas day is all that
it should be.
