If Building Is Put On Athletic
Field. Morningside Beaten.
The future of University athletics ha.
looked very black for the last couple
of clays. First the order of the hoard
of regents that no men should bo ex
cused from second semester drill on
account of athletics was announced,
and the baseball management groaned
in despair; and then the location of the
new physics building was definitely
settled, with still more disastrous re
sults. The drill regulation will force
about half of the best baseball and
track team men to confine themselves
to "right shoulder," and "present" In
athletic lines. Steeu. Ileltzev, Stein and
Townsend himself will hae to drill
under the new regulations, while, I-esh.
Benedict and several other prominent
track men will have io drop out.
The honorable board, however, pre
pared a still more unpleasant surprise
for us in the new physics building. The
board first confirmed the location as
recommended by the building commit
tee, and then referred the Athletic
Board's request to this committee As
planned, the north side of the new
building will be on a line w'th the
north a'.de of University hall. This
would leao room for football and per
haps baseball by moving the field up
to the "T" street curb nut a wing
of the building has been planned whUh
will entirely ruin the field. This wln,j
is to extend north eighty feet and then
there Is to bo a space of fifteen feet
beforo a fenco can be put up. This
will ruin the field beyond redemption,
and at its meeting Wednesday night
the Athletic Board decided that in casjL
these planB were carried out they
would cancel all football dates for next
year, and there should be no more ath
letics in the University of Nebraska.
Only those who have been in touch
with the University for years will un
derstand the full significance of this
and wo will not attempt to explain !t
to others. It simply means that with
out athletics half tho attraction which
this University has for students will
be lost. Perhaps very few come here
merely on account of the athletics, but
it is certain that when a young man
and perhaps a young woman who In
tends to enter school, is weighing tho
respective merits of several colleges,
ho or alio will go to the one which,
while equal in other respects, excels in
tho athletic world.
Receipts and Expenditures
Football Season 1903.
Our basket ball toam found itself in
t ho northern wildnoss 'Wednesday
night and defeated Morningside by the,
overwhelming score of 57 to 27. Hag
enslck found his eye, and Hewitt also
seemed able to hit the basket In bet
tor Bhape. It Is to be hoped that the
boys did as well against Minnesota
last night, and prevented the Gophers
from winning In a gallop.
Tho series of class basket ball games
which was to be p)ayed tonight has
boon postponed until some time next
week. A delay on the part of the
management In getting the armory en
able a society to engage It. All the
teams are practicing hard and the
gameB will be worth seeing. It Is con
ceded that the Sqphomores will win
their game, and odds favor the Seniors
In the other contest.
Manager Boll has signed a game with
Belolt after considerable haggling with
the management of that college. The
gamo will bo played on our eastern
trip, one of tho Decorah games being
dropped to make room far it.

President Smith of tho Sopuomoro
class, yesterday set the dnto of tho
next class meeting as next Monday.
On this occasion the fight that has boon
waging fiercely for the past two weeks
will bo doclded, and the question 03 to
whothor. tho managers of tho Som
brero shall bo elected by tho class or
appointed by the president will be defi
nitely settled. The suppooters of tho
former proposition are continuing to
energetically forward It and assert con
siderable confidence In its success.
So far as Tho Nebr!aakan can dis
cover the struggle has lost somewhat
of tho personal animus which so
strongly predominated during its first
stages. It Is even possible that some of
President Smith's appointees may le
ceive the support of the boomers of
tho election proposition. Tho latter
continue to assert their total disinter
estedness personally In tho outcome of
tho fight, but maintain that they aro
working for th Interests of tho class
alono. Mr. J. V. Monro, one of the
most prominent supporters of tho peti
tion, which, has been so energetically
pushed during the past week and who
published a letter In laet Wednesday's
Nebraskan In an Interview with a Nc
btaskan reporter yesterday said:
"We are not making a personal sciap
of this. What wo want is a board that
wilt be representative of tho best tal
ent that Is In the Sophomore class, and
If the present appointees can prove
their efficiency, we would be glad to
give them our support. Wo havo no
one In view for whoso Interests wo aro
working, and tho candidates whoso
names shall be presented at tho next
class meeting will bo largely chosen by
tho recommendation of the English de
partment of the University. If Mr.
Wheeler and Mr. Mathowson are re
commended, they will receive our sup
port. "In any event, we are determined
that the members of the Sombrero
board shall be the choice of the class.
Every member of" the class will be
personally notified, If possible of the
meeting, and they aro all pretty sure
to be there. I am glad tho affair la
approaching a close."
We learn from a reliable source that
150 postal cards havo been sent out
in order to bring the matter promi
nently beforo the members of the class,
and those who have not been reached
In this way will probably, bo seen per
sonally. AH Indications point to the
most exciting and important meeting
in the history of tho Sophomore class
and one of tho most significant in the
history of class politics in tho Univer
sity, since the result of tho present
fight will probably determine the mat
tor for future classes. It Is likely, also,
that the success of next year's Som
brero will rest largely on the outcome
of Monday's show-down. If the strug
gle can bo amicably settled the book
will doubtless be the most successful
ever published by a Junior class at Ne
braska, while on tho other hand, If tho
fight "remains unsettled the book Will
bo practically killed). Tho members of
the class are apparently well aware of
this fact and great care seems to be
taken by both sides in the fight that
personal animosity may not enter inlo
the solution of the question.
