will bo killed If tho building la placed
en the athletic field.
Wo are facing a serlouti situation.
The building must bo constructed elBO
whoro on the campus or wo will have
no more athletics. These are the al
ternatives and between them a choice
must bo made. We would greatly re
gret to boo athletics recelvo a severe
blow, as our future along these lines
Is exceedingly bright. We only sought
to depict tho situation as It truly ex
ists and have made no attempt at col
oring, matters or to make the case
seom unduly aggravated. The fact Is 1
apparent that If tho physics building
Is put on the athletic field, then ath
letics must go.
Reasons Why Government
sitions Are Desirable.
Every Sophomore owes a debt to
his class, tho University and himself.
Como out Monday to the class meet
ing, and vote upon tho question of class
election of the Sombrero board. An
honest opinion 1b all that is desired. No
man or woman In the Sophomore class
can afford to stay away, as everyone
will be held responsible for the quality
of the book. Remember, Monday, at
The musical programs at convocation
have proved one of tho most effective
means of keeping up Interest in chapel
exercises this year. A common Incen
tive at the end of the week bringB out
the students in crowds and convorts-the
minds of many to attending chapel reg
ularly. Then, too, tho nature of the
program is a change from the usual
order,and being musical In character, It
makeB them look forward to it with
anticipation, thuB exciting interest,
which is not always concentrated on
thQone. ovont, but often reached far
ther and has a wholesome effect upon
tho attendance on other days.
Monday will bo-an eventful day in
tho way of class meetings. The Fresh
men will meet to elect their officers,
after being unablo to do so at a pre
vious meeting on account of tho lack
of a quorum. Tho JunlorB will assem
ble to transact special business, and the
Sophomores will bo out In force to
decide on the questions raised regard
ing the Junior Annual Board. Lot all
of the members of each of these classeB
come out and attend their respective
meetings. Tho opinions of the class
can not bo represented in any case If
so many stay away from-the meetings
where the buslnes of the class in trans
acted. Many often express disappoint
ment over something done at their class
meetings, and yet it is often the case
that they were not present when the
offending action was taken. Thus they
are thomsches to blame, and If there
are any evils- that they wish to pro
vent or see remedied then It is their
duty to come out and cast their vote
according to their views, even If they
do nothing else.
University sentiment is directly
againet tho construction of the new
phys'lc building on the athletic field.
The interviews published in today's pa
per are the opinions of prominent men
on thj laculty and these are sound and
reasonable. If athletics are driven
lrom the University campus, they can
not prosper as they did here and much
of the' Interest that has been centered
In the past would depart with them.
Realizing this bur Athletic Board 4ias
laia down tho ultimatum that athletics
The government positions are worth
tho attention of all college Btudents,
Inasmuch as It is a field accessible to
most without previous experlence( al
though this In addition will equip one
better). One has an employer with
whom merit is the prime considera
tion, and tho salary Is perhaps better
than can be obtained at the start else
where. In each year every employe is en
titled to 30 days of leave, .besides 30
days of sick leave. Under the civil ser
vice rules the hours are from 9 to 12.
and 12:30 to 4, which leaves plenty
of time for additional study, recrea
tion, or whatever disposition one will
make of his time.
A large number of employes take the
work In the different educational Insti
tutions here which arrange their
schedules bo as to make that possible
Thus, some draftsmen take courses in
engineering and patent offlce exam
iners Btudy the laws relating to pat
ents. It is a significant fact that fow good
men stay long with the first position
they get, but manage either to be ad
vanced or get a more suitable posi
tion, outside of the government service.
This can be said to apply to technical
positions only and the demand Is great
er than the supply. Clerks and sten
ographers have not as gdod an oppor
tunity as the Bupply Is ample. 'An
engineering graduate can soon find
something that will suit him and be
able to got It too.
Naturally enough, most of the em
ployes are from tho east, though Ne
braska has more than Us apportion
ment. There are now some twonty
people In this city who have been con
nected with the University, and more
are to be found at the arsenal and
