defiance directed against the supposed
"represeuttlve all-clusa" team, and its
Innuendo directed against the athletic
editor of the dally de6erves some at
tention from the athletic editor, at
least- When the all-class team was
published for the choice, was given to
"The Nebrakaus' expert." Our ath
letic editor has never posed as an ex
pert, but, on the contrary, has followed
the successes and failures of the 'var
sity as a reporter. He has given to the
"students what they could not always
get for themselves, but through it all
he has never assumed to criticise nor
give expert testimony. Hs disclaims,
In vigorous terraB, all knowledgo of the
choice pf this representative all-class
team. Had- it been left to his judg
ment to pick such a team the choice
v;ould have been somewhat different,
but would hayo been far from the team
lined up inlefllanee above. If the ag
grieved parties will Inquire, the ath
letic editor will, be only too glad to
give Information which may lead to
placing the guilt, If guilt there be,
where it belongs, and at the same tlino
take 'advantage of the opportunity to
remove the Imputed stains from his
own character. So much from the ath
letic editor's sido as to the advisability
of such a game. If the all-class team,
ay chosen, wishes to defend the title
against all ambitious challengers, that
is their look-out. What good can come
of such a game Is hard to see. Should
tho all-class team win, then other as
pirants for the all-class honors would
arise. And what's tho use? The men
placed on the, all-class, team -were
chosen because of their supp'osed su
periority in the positions they held,
and It was thought that they would be
able to hold their own against, anyl
other aggregation composed of men
participating In thJnter-clqss games.
Ono thing is certain. Had the athletic
editor known that "everlasting rc-
-nown" could have been thus achieved,
ho" would have hadhls finger in the
- plo.

1'ditoi Dally Nebraska'):
An animated controversy Is again
being unearthed, in which It Is con
tended that the Sophomore football
team, who are the winners In the
Intei -Academic class contests of the
unherslty bhouUl now play the U
tors Li the Law College. This, as it
must appear to the minds of all cloBe
obscners is but a rekindling ol the
! molderlng arguments advanced last
year and will piobably be productive
ol as much smoke anrl a? little blaze
as formerly.
The contention that tho Sophomores
team, which after several hard,
successive struggles ha3 lightly earned
tho championship, must buck the line
of the lefal men in -order to estab
lish their supremacy is ,it sej&ms to
me a weakling. Of course, on the sur
face it gives the Impression that the
Sophomores are obstinate In their re
fusal to comply with the ordinance
ol the boardrbut If the cover is lifted
Off, and' he history Is examined more
(rltfcally, many of those who have al
leady given hostile expressions of
opinion will, without doubt, change
their positions.
The point in question, according
to the position Sophomore foot
ball manager, is whether or not It is
right, not only to the Sophomore team,
but fo the acadomlc students as a
whole, to comply with these regula
tions. He argues that it it not, for
tbre' reasons; cause, first: There is
no basis for the distinction as made by
the athletic board; Second: That it
would be asking mora of his team than
was demanded ol previous winners In
the class championship: and Third:
That tlic Law students have beon ex
ceedingly lukc-warm in their financial
support of these Inter-class games. All
three of these points might be largely
elaborated, but an exhaustive argu
ment would require too much space,
therefore tho treatment of each must
be brief. First ,111 en, anyone, it seems
to me, can see the fallacy of placing
a line of distinction between the Laws

and Academics.
wise to lengthon out still more, and
recognize the College of Science; tho
Collego of Medicine, only a two years'
courser, and the College of Literature,
but any ono can see tho ridiculousness
of such a divislpn. It Is furthermore
absurd to recognize tho Lawi classes
separately because they are at Uberjty
to outer tho Academic classes and try
for places on their team3, a3 well as on
tho 'Varsity. If they are a separate
institution why not keep them from
playing on tho 'Varsity eleven?
Tbp second reason is that the Soph
omores should not be compelled, from
n "moral "viewpoint, to contest farth'er
for the honors. They have now done
all that was over bofore required of
any Acadomlc teanvana they propose
to ronent any imposition It Is unfair
and unjust, after they have by hard
knocks won fairly and squarely, that
thoy should now be forced to play with
( ----
a team of heavy men that have not un
dergone the strugglo of winning the
victory from other classes. On tho
ground, then, of the injustice to his
team, he holds that the Sophomores
should not be forced to play.
The third reason, and by all means
not the least, he contends that inas
much as the Law college has only paid
$1 toward the funds to buy sweaters
lor tho winning team, against $24 of
the Acadomlc, these gontlemen, by
their lukc-warm financial support,
should not be considered.
All of theso points, It seems, substan
tiate the claims of tho Sophomore
football raannger, and when duly con
sidered we can but recognize that he
