Unlvorslty contests In which tho
wholo school Is, or ought to be, on
'thuslasttcally Interested deserve tho
undivided attention and support of all
the students. Such support Is tho only
truly legitimate means of maintaining
unlvorslty enterprises. With it wo
may confidently expect the best results
-In. all lined and without It the most
promising possibilities areJiam pored.
It Is reported that during the big
"football gamo Saturday a number of
social gatherings were held among
University people Without reflecting
personally upon those who were re
sponsible for these conflicting dates,
wo think tho general practise of
scheduling other ontertainments - and
parties for dates which should, be
wholly surrendered to tho "University
refreshments, at a cost pf less than
$1.26' a ticket. This is a condition
wholly unwarranted and In our opin
ion is an imposition on the University
Dancing is probably tho most gen
eral amusement in tho University.
Tho ubsonco pf dormitories and the
consequent scattering of students thru
every section of Lincoln prevent the
varied modes of entertainment that'
prevail In othor colleges. Tho result
Is an attendance nt dances that is
uniformly largo. Evidently our dance
promoters haver observed this fact and
havo sot out to profit thereby, for in
spite of prices which permit a big
"rake off," the attendance continues
upbrokon. And oven these higher
priced dances are sometimes woefully
lacking,' especially In the way of re
freshments. It is nonsense to claim that a danco
cannotrpay for Itself when tickets are
sold for $1.00. It has been done too
often to need additional proof. Tho
argument of precedent is moro pow
erful to convince than are the asser
tions of would-be capitalists. Of
course wo acknowledge that If money
is to be raised for a legitimate pur
pose a dance is as permlssablo as any
other method, 'but such a purpose
should be made public from tho very
start, that those who attend tho danco
may know what to expect
We are not all Croesuses by any
manner of meanB, but sotting" aside the
question of anyone's ability to pay tho
additional tax, the high-priced danco
is an incentive to graft and caters dis
tinctly to snobbishness.

THE $1.00 DANCE.
Before' tho social season of tho
University is farther advanced it
seems apropos to Bay a word in fa-vor
of. tho "$1.00 dance'" which has almost,
If not quite, gone out of vogue in the
last two years. There was a Umo
when University dances were given
by tho classes and by 'Independent or
ganizations for tho pleasure It afford
ed. Tho motto was not "How much
can wo take In?" but rather, "How
much can we give at tho lowest con
sistent figure.?"
Of late tho practise has changed
and tliruout' all last year not a Univer
sity danco was given with a good floor,
with good music, and with the simplest

has an engagement to give a concert
before the Teachers' Association on
December 15, and will have to work
hard to make up a program that Is in
keeping with Its reputation.

"The Foundations of 8ocology" Meets
With Commendation.
The following item is taken from
tho Wisconsin "Cardinal" for October
Professor Ross of tho department of
Sociology has recently had Issued
from tho Macmillan press a book,
"Tho Foundations of Sociology," which
is meeting with tho enthusiastic sup
port of tho sociologists of tho country.
A writer in the Political Scienco Quar
terly for September says of the book
as a whole that "his (Ross's) work of
analysis and criticism of tho founda
tions of society deserves universal
recognition as a contribution of the
first order to 'both sociological litera-"
ture and sociological scienco"; and of
tho chapter on tho recent tendencies
In sociology, "It reveals a fine sanity
and fairness and philosophic insight.
It Is a strong and sympathetic analy
sis of tho views of the great sociolog
ists of tho last decade or two. It is
perhaps the best brief critical essay
that wo have upon their work."
Tho author of the work, Professor
Robs, Is the new head of tho depart
ment of sociology of tho university.
He Is tho author of a number of works
on both economic and sociological sub
jects, and has an enviable reputation
for,, his courage and advanced though
sane thought. Ho has been pronounced
by one of the German sociologists one
of the three great sociological think
ers of tho times; .and he has the fur-,
ther distinction of being the first pro
fessor to glVe unlvorslty courses on
the subjects of railroads and of cities
Professor Ross Is a graduate of Coe
College. After receiving his degree
from the Iowa cologe he studied for a
year at the University of Berlin, after
wards returning to this country and
entering John Hopkins where ho re
ceived his tiodtor's degree In 1891.
Since leaving the latter Institution he
has held tho chair of political econ
omy at tho University of Indiana; has
been assoclato professor, of political
economy and finance at Cornell, pro
fessor of sociology at Leland Stanford
Jr. University and at the University
of Nebraska, and 'lecturer In sociology
at Harvard and the University of
