ATHLETIC BOARD WILL REQUIRE
TAX AT NEXT ELECTION.
Do Not Think It Advisable to Remove
the Tax at This Time Result of
-Board Meeting Yesterday.
The Athletic Board at Its meeting
yesterday considered the petition pre
sented by the Associated Barbs for
the removal of the twenty-five cent
tax on the ballot at the election of
student members of the Athletic Board
and by an almost unanimous vote de
cided to retain the tax. The reason
for their action seems to be based
largely on the present -condition of
the finances of tho Board and the need
of raising money to pay off the de
ficit. There Is now a deficit of about
eight hundred dollars, and It Is prob
able that this amount will bo In
creased somewhat l)y tho end of tho
track season. With these facts In
mind the Board did not soem to feel
that It could remove the tax.
In view of the action taken by the
Associated Barbs Thursday, It Is with
considerable Interest that the students
await the next meeting of that organl
zatlon. The members of the associa
tion feol a little indignant over the
action of the Board and a few are ad
vocating quite radical measures. It
has even been suggested by some uf
the most radical that they boycott ath
letics until tho fee Is removed. A num
ber of other plnna"havc boen suggested.
No definite plan of actlon has been
.agreed upon among the leaders as yet.
"President Myers, when asked what
action would likely be taken, had the
following to say:
"If the Athletic Board retained tho
fej5 as a money making proposition I
fear that they will be disappointed. I
cannot say at thIstlmo 3ust what ac
tion the Barbs will tffko. A meeting of
the Association will be held noxTweok
and some action taken. A number of
courses of action have been suggested
and these suggestions wlllbo threshed
out at'that meeting. We shall stand
by the actum Thursday and do all In
our pow6r to make Unit actloa offec--tlvo.
The Barbs will have no ticket
in tlo field at tho coming election if
the twenty-fiyo cont tax Is not re
moved." Wo shall not only not put up
a ticket but shall try to keep our
members from voting7 Such other ac
tion will betaken as seems advisable."
The. Athletic Board, at Its special
"meeting yesterday .morning, appointed
a committee to settle upon tho method
of election. The concensus of the
members, was that the election should
bo madp more orderly. It was also
thought that toll voters should register
provlous to tho election, and pay fees
at this tlmo, and on election day no
unregistered studont should bo per
mitted to vote under any circum
stances. The registering Is to remove
any suspicion of purchasing votes.
Tho subject was vory thoroughly
threshed out and the majority of tho
sentiment was that the abolition of the
fee would not correct tho evil. It Is
no secret that tho board Is In need
of tho money and it feels that, the stu-

dent body should be loyal enough to
contribute at least tv.ent y-flvo cents
each towards the cause of athletics.
And If the previous registration sys
tem, which is the spirit of the present
ruling, Is carried out It will eliminate
petty politics from student board elec
tions as nothing clso'can. In view of
this fact, a motion was passed that tho
"present rule of tho board with refer
ence to the qualification relative to
voting, lor student members of tho
Athletic Board be not changed.

In spite of the inclement weather,

Morse Is bringing out as good a
bunch of men as has left Lincoln this
season and unless the fact that they

great a difference, It is only reasonable
to expect a victory In tho majority of
the games. The men will lino up and
play as follows:
Rlne, shortstop; Barta, first base;
Hyde, catcher; Carroll, catcher and
right field; Denslow, center field; Bel

second baso; Doit, pitcher; Morse,
pitcher and second base; Gaddls, third
base, and Davey, right field.
We haven't grounds for basing too

Phi Kappa Psl defeated Sigma Alpha
Epsllon yesterday in a five-inning
game. Tho score at tho end of tho
game stood 11-6. Both pitchers wero
hit pretty freely and long hits seemed
to bo tho feature of tho contest. The
game could not be finished on account
of tho Lincoln High School class meet
which was, to occupy tho grounds from
2:30 o'clock on.
