Tho action of the Board of Regenta
In decreeing that no student may be
cxciiBQd from military work tho second
semester has called for a popular vfy
of protest. The Inevitable rosult of
such a ruling going into effect would
lie to cripple our track team and base
ball interests beyond measure. In the
cadet battalion a large number of our
best athletes arc enrolled. . without
whom any organization purporting to
bo representative of our University as
a baseball or track team would certain
ly make a poor showing. At these twi
branches of uthlethlcs a severe blo.v
will have been struck, unless its forv
is mitigated and some concpssions made
to their interests.
We do not object to drill as a prin
ciple, but in this connection it seems
that some concession ought to be mado
to athletics, in order that this depart
ment may not be crippled. Tho pro
cess of developing a fast baseball or
track team taxes the skill and ability
of the trainers to the utmost oven when
they have the whole University to pick
from, but if the field is to be limited
to such an extent as is Impending their
task will be a hopeless one. An athlete
can not stand two different systems of
training for different purposes at the
same time, and develop the best that Is
in him. He must concentrate on one
kind of work alone If he hopes to at
tain success. Such being tho case he
can not drill and practice outdoor ath
letics at the same time, if he were so
inclined. If the men aro obliged to
drill a number of our best athletes will
bo rendered unavailable and it Is doubt
ful If Nebraska could undertake to meet
ft rival institution, being thus crippled.
Athletics are representative of the
Institution and the teams that have
In the past achieved suc5cesson the
track and diamond have been a source
of pride to us all. No true Nebraska
student can bide the thought of every
rival institution flaunting their colors
In our faco and daring us to a conteEt
which means defeat to us. Yet wo must
certainly take a subordinate position ii.
baseball and track work to Institutions
whose resources In these departments
cannot compare with our own, but
where every concession is made to ath-
letlcH. With pur best athletes tied up
in a position from which they can not
leleaso themselves, our chances for
making a respectable showfe If we
try at all, are very; rfjffflUd. "' It would
indeed be a pity If .Nebraska should be
obliged to retire ffdimiuo race or suffer
the humiliation of UrltfgTiig up the rear,
when she has so .nc'hood material
that is rendered uuna.Uabie by tho ac
tion of her own officers;
"Athletics is the'llfef an institution. Tha R
Our University has gained in prestige Shops.
because of the excellent record she has
made in athletics. Any stringent
abridgement of a custom that has long
prevailed in connection with this
branch is to be regretted when we
realize the results that will bo entailed.
Tho ruling of tho Regonts will have a
most detrimental effect If allowed to
stand. In making this statement we
have In mind the popular sentiment
prevailing in tho University, and at
heart the best Interests of athletics.
Hence we have tried to present an un
prejudiced and representative view of
the matter, and sincerely hope that
some moans may bo found to adjust
matters satisfactorily to all concerned.
Our debaters are lining up for the
preliminaries and soon tho fight for
places will be on. The large number
of men registered and the enthusiasm
with which they are going into the
work portend good results. The ex
ample of men who have earned victor
ies in debates for this institution is in
stilling inspiration in them. The readi
ness with which such a comparatively
laigo number arc willing to undertake
the ast amount of work Involved be
speaks much to the credit of our stu
dent body. The honor of representing
the University in ono of the interstate
contests Is appreciated, considering the
amount of effort and ability necessary
to achieve it. Such a spirit Is a healthy
one and will serve to substantially pro
mote debating Interests here.

Dr. Fling analyzed qullo thoroughly
the different phases of the Russo-Jan-anejo
war at chapel yesterday morn
ing. He said in pait:
"The eyes of tho whole world arc
turned toward the struggle in theoriont
and are stuplfied with surprise at the
decisive blows inflicted on the north
ern Bear.. This intoiest shown In the
conflict may be because of our attitude
toward Japan, her cause of Justice and
the land grabbing greed of Russia."
This war he contended would turn
our attention to a different line of his
tory. We have been studying the his
tories of western Europe and tho his
tory of Rusia and Japan has been left
He spoke of Russia's rapid strides
in the east, and her shrewd diplomatic
teiritorlal acqujsitions and as England
had steadily pushed on and acquired
possession of the new world, so Rus
sia has gradually wedged herself Into
the cential position of the eastern con
tinent. In this France and Germany
have been urging RusBla on, while
England etood quietly by and watched
her eastern policy trampled upon by
Japan, on the other hand. Is the spon
sor of the Mongolian races and will
make an unparalleled attempt to re
main the master of tho eastern king
dom, and her defeat would mean tho
world spread government and ciiBtom3
of the Caucasion race.
Dr. Fling traced the hiBtory of the
conflict between these powers from Its
earliest date so that one could see the
growing spirit of antagonism and rival
ry until tho climax of the present strug
gle was reached.
He spoke of the different nations
and their vlows on tho eastern policy
In which ho said that tho Russian be
lieved in seclusion and exclusion while
the United States and England believed
in Uie open door policy.,
"'It Is hard to toll." ho said, "who
will come out victorious, and also hard
to determine which would bo tho bet
ter victor, but we will await the re
Thj subject was very ably discussed,
and many bright lights were thrown
upon the subject, which cleared the ob
structed vision of many who aro trying
to familiarize themselves with tho true
situation of the contest.
