Candidates for the Athletic Board
Announce Themselves.
The preparations for the coming ath
lotlc election have been quite active
In character, and the busy politicians
woro greatly In evidence yesterday,
having the petitions of their candldatOB
signed up. This activity was due to
the fact that 6 o'clock this evening
was tho limit set for filing petitions
with tho secretary of the Athletic
Board. Tho time was extended a week
from laBt Saturday, owing to tho lack
of preparation of many of the candi
dates. The election will bo hold on
Wednesday, May 18th, leaving a space
ol less than two weeks, but it Is evi
dent that much good work will be
done In that time.
Tho girl vote has been a general
topic of discussion, and It la evident
taat It will figure quite largely, In this
year's election. In fact, hopeful glances
aro cast In their direction and much
la expected of them. Tho practice of
voting them promises to be general,
although few con bo found who would
defend the practice. It Is phophesled
that tho election will rurnisn an oojeci
lesson that will- be remembered and
looked back upon with Interest.
The action or the barbs In putting
up a ticket of their own is alBO caus
ing much discussion. Principal and
expediency aro tho two chief points of
dlBcusslon as far as wo can find out.
Some bellevo that their action has been
too precipitate, but tho barbs in gen
oral believe that they have acted for
f tho best. They realize tho potency of
organization, but have Btlll to find out
what results it will bring to them.
Tin n voftt.frrinv ovonlnc nine candi
dates were known to be in the field.
These aro L. P. Hewitt, C. T. Borg,
fiotcher Lane J. L. Van Burg, W. J.
Woods, Frank Beers, Cy Mason, F. A.
Barta and Maloney. Another fraterni
ty candidate or even more will bo an
nounced today. Cy Mason's petition
has already been posted, rtnd is now
ready for public inspection. Both fra
ternity and barb men showed a will
ingness to sign each other's petitions,
but of course this augurs nothing of
any great importance.
Tho campaign will probably be the
most Interesting that has ever been
waged hero, and Is full of uncertainty.
It is certain that Interest will be add
ed because of the girl vote and the agi
tation that bos been arouse concerning
it. Then too, students seem to realize
how important a place on the Athletic
nnnrrt roniiv is. A student member of
the board has power and influence of
a substantial character, and can make
his pressure felt in tho government of
athletics. Nebraska's sudden rise into
prominence has increased the desira
bility and honor of such a position,
which fact is gentrally realized. Our
football, basketball and baseball teams
have forged to tho front, and are able
to go up against the best that can bo
scheduled. Nebraska could hold a
place In tho "Big Nine," and could
make the best teams hustle to beat her
out. What wonder Is it then that a
position on the Athletic Board is so
When we look ahead and see what
the future holds for us, if the present
progress continues, tho true position
and Btanding of athletics in this Unl-
verslty are mod fully apparent. Our
groat football schedule for next year is
an evidence of what has been accom
plished, and the results of It coming
duo in their season will further demon
strate tho possibilities in store for us.
It Is essential then that good men be
elected to tho board, men -who are re
liable, reasonable and conservative and
who are willing to subvert their own
Interests to the good of athletics.
It is most desirable that men be
elected who will attend the meetings

maBS of bU8lne8B to bo done Is indeed
great, and If a few are obliged to
snoulder the burdon as a result of the
lack of Interest of the others much dif

Care, then, should be taken in see

kind is to obtain good, capable and
conscientious men for tho Athletic
Board, and the students will be doing
well by thoir own interests by sup

quirements. This 1b tho principal that
should govern, and if it is adhered to
it is safo to say that athletics in our
University will be benefitted im

sented to provide special music. He
will sing some choice selections.
