Saturday's game ought to bring out
a crowd, after the magnificent showing
mado-by the team at.Klrksvlllo.
Nebraska has started the football
season right Her goal line Is as yet
uncrossed. Lot every student see to It
that he does his part to keep it so.
Nebraska's showing at Klrksvllle
ought to be an encouragement to the
supporters of the team. Tho Osteo

All lB-haTmony ndw and It Is to be
hoped that nothing will come up to
prevent harmonious action In the fu
ture. If a new opponent Is added to
Nebraska's list In the shape of Loland
Stanford so much tho greater effort
must be put forth to Keep up the old
standard of debating In the University.
In another column appears an ar
ticle on debating coaching as It Is car
ried on at Harvard. Tho merits of tho
system aro too obvious to need com
mendation here. If coaching Is a gooa
-thing-forathlotlc teamB it certainly
ought to be just as profitable for .de
bating teams. While tho Harvard plan
Is too expensive to put in operation in
the University of Nobraska-aomo gooa
features of It might bo appropriated
without much expense. For instance,
graduates who had achieved success In
debating might bo induced to devote
some time to directing tho debating
teams. This would Increase Interest
and also insure a hotter preparation
for tho- final debate.
OHANOBIJXmANTOBWS ' MAKES
Reports in a Chicago newspaper last
students of the University of Chicago
had upheld and advocated the telling
of lies under certain circumstances.
Later reports wore also sent out charg
ing htm with oxpresslngsympathy for
tho Chicago anarchists In a conversa
tion on a street car. In order that tho
studonts of tho University may under
stand tho absurdity of these reports
ccllor are published:
"A report Is In circulation to tho
effect that In a lecture on Veracity last
month at tho University of Chicago I
taught that under certain circum
stances lying Is Justifiable. This re
port Is absolutely falBO and without
foundation. Some careless reportor
must have ascribed to me a view which
I mentioned only to refute It. In tho
lecture referred to I maintained with
all tho logic and warmth at my com
mand that lying Is never justifiable
under any circumstances or for any
purpose whatever. No other Idea of my
meaning could have occurred to any
"Fragmentary reports or a recent
conversation to which a few neighbors
and myself were parties do me great
Injustice, seeming to rank me among
sympathizers with anarchy. Nothing
could be more absurd. No man alive
abominates anarchy In every form
more heartily than I; porhaps few
havo done more with arms or with pen
to repress anarchy. I myself havo noth
ing to keep back, but as parts of the
conversation referred to might bo
thought to compromise tho other par
ties I will not detail it without per
mission. Suffice it to say that all urged
opposition to anarchy, I as earnestly as
tho rest, only our methods differed."
A BAD TENDENCY.
In a circular letter to city sUporln-,
tendents, State Superintendent Fowler
"Wo also commend to your careful
consideration the Btate courses of stu
dy for high schools as outlined In the
Nebraska High School Manual, Issued
Jblntty by tho Stato University and
Ltals department. Heed the criticism
made therein by Inspector J. W. Crab
treo In that part of his roport entitled,
'A Bad Tendency Tho University au
thorities should also give serlouB

The reputation of Harvard lh debate
Is such that any system of training

consideration. Ono of tho strong
points In the method followed at Har
vard In developing her representatives
In debate Is the securing ror each team
the services of a debating coach. Tho
person selected for thiB work is usual

In former debates and is willing to

discussed at some length tho advant
ages of tho plan:
"Probably few realize the value of
the services of tho debating coach.
Unllko the coaching of athletic teams,
his work Is very conspicuous, but It Is
nono tho less essential to tho develop
ment of a good team. The men who
aro pioked lor the team must of course
do tho work of gathering ovidonco and
learning thoroughly the ground which
Is to be covered, but It Is almost In
variably found that tho men, having
chosen their Bide and worked up evi
dence .support It, become so fully
convinced of the strength of their
own position that thoy fall to realize
tho strong points of tho other side and
their own weaknesses. It Is at this
stage that the coach does his best boj
vlco. Ho sets tho second team to build
ing up an opposing case, and taking
himself an unprejudiced point of view
he is enabled to pick out all the weak
points of his team, to give proper
emphasis to strong points and to pro
vent tho mon from making unsup
ported assumptions and obscure tran
sitions of argument which tho au
dience and the judges would not be
able to follow. In fac ho. .criticises
as much as possible from the stand

Having this outside view ho Is able
to divide the ground between tho
throe men, giving each his part of the
caso to nrove, and arranging the
Bpeoches in such a way that they
logically lead up to one definite con
clusion, The co-operation of other
graduates has always been especially
valuable to the head coach-In that It
