The band ceitnlnly did not fall below
the standard It has Hot, nt convocation
yesterday, but on the contrary If any
thing It exulted It. A band Is a nee
osary apr.it tenancc to the holding of
general university affalrn, and1 the good
it accomplishes In Its sphere of action
can not be estimated. Nothing enliv
ens a football game, or In fact any
sort of a gathering so much as a good
band, ami this we have.
Tho action of the PhJ Beta Kappa
society in taking measures to confer
with the Sigma XI chapter and the
Alumni association, with a vlewrff
uniting hereafter In securing one com
mencement orator for tho three organi
sations, seems to bo a reasonable propo
sition. Several advantages are pointed
out. The expeiip? falling upon each of
these organisations In eecurlng an ora
tor would be lebs, the ono meeting
would attract more attention and be
of greater Importance than the three
separate ones, and) with these three so
cieties united In ono effort they could
net on a larger scale. In the past all
these meetings have bct'n full of Inter
est and largely attended, but we be
lieve than an- amalgamation of the
thtee into one would result In a great
er community of interest and the
achievement of still better results. It
Is planned to give each society the
cholco or orator in turn, and for each
to pay a share or the expenses. Such
an undei taking carried' out would' re
sult In the drawing together of these
organizations and tho strengthening or

Nt braskan to clip extensively from tho
xchanges. the following extracts from
two of our contemporaries prove we
think, that the sentiments that we
have olced In these columns inro Cas
par Whitney during the past week have
been generally concurred in by west
ern sporting critics. The following Is
fronu tho "Daily mini." the official or
gan of tlie University of Illinois:
"Mr. Caspar Whitney, the eastern
football critic. In his review of the
past season deals Illinois a severe blow,
as is apparent from the following clip
ping: " 'Caspar Whitney, tho veteran east
ern football writer in his review of the
Eeason of lDOo, In the current issue of
Outing, wipes the University of Chica
go off tho gridiron ontiroly, refusing to
give Stagg's team any ranking what
ever because it played Eckersall, who
was under A A. U. suspension, on Its
team. Ho says several complimentary
things of western football In the ab
stract, then proceeds, to put tho entire
wqst ojt of tho running as compared
with the east. Minnesota is given the
place of honor In tho wieet, but Min
nesota is put fourth in fcls lisf, being
subordinated) to Princeton, Dartmouth
and Yalo. itfr. Whitney does not ex
plain tho omiEcion of George WoodV
ruff'o Illinois team, norj why North
westtcn it put ten places behind Wla-
consln, which team it played to a tie,
unless tho following explanation of his
mothod of ranking is so intended:
"This ranking Is not based only on
comparative scores, but on style of
play, conditions under which games
were contested relative importance of
games on schedule, as well as tho sea
eon's all around record of the elevens
under discutsion. Mr. particular In
terest In the subject Is the object les
Fon' It furnishes on comparative foot
ball development throughout the coun
try. This Im from the "Dally Maroon"
of the University of Chicago:
"In many respects Caspar Whitney's
review of the pennon can not be taken
peilously. In ranking tho leading west
ern tramp hopelessly behind those of
the east and ostracising Chicago and
Nebraska for alleged professionalism,
Mr. Whitney line quite equalled his
former ridiculous criticisms of west
ern standards. Consequently the west,
which hns long since adopted the atti
tude of the eastern athletic world to
ward this critic, regards him ns noth
ing more or less thnn a fantastic, ath
TRACK TEAM PROSPECTS
Arrangements for Out of Town
Meet Being Made.
Thv piospeits for a good out of
town schedule of track events for this
year are ery hopeful. Minnesota,
Ames, Colorado and South Dakota are
all on the hopeful list, and make a
most excellent quartet.
The meet with South Dakota Is prac
tically an assured thing and will prob
ably be held either at Sioux City, la.,
.or VermilJfbn, So. f)ak.
South Dakota has always put out a
good track team, one which could mnke
a good thowlng against most any rep
resentative team and a meet for us
with those men will be a good test of
the ability or our town team.
The other three colleges above men
tioned have not been heard rrom defi
nitely, but Trom the context of their
writing the possibilities of a meet are
Tho Athletic Board will probably take
action on these trips at their next
The men who are training for long
distance running will meet today at
2:30 p. m.
It is most expedient that all men
who expect to tako up this work
should come out at once and get to
worn In order that they may get Into
the best possible condition by spring.
It hardly stands to reason that a man
may put off his practice until April
and then get out and get into any kind
or Bhape or do work whlili will be a
credit to him.
States, captain of the track team,
has charge or the long distance run
ning. The men are doing comparative
ly light work now, covering trom two
to four miles a day. but the distance
will gradually bo increased.
Tho gymnastic team will meet ror
practice at 2:30 this arternoon.
Nearly twice as many men are out
working for places this time as there
woro for the last contest, and a great
deal more interest in the event has
