WHAT IS TO BE DONE?
, Tho following communication from
tlio manager of uthlotlcH In the Un
' vorslty wo believe to bo exceedingly
pertinent at the present time and
worthy of tho moHt careful attention
at the hands of tho student body, the
Chancellor, and tho Board of Regents.
W.3 present Mr. Engor's argument for
Immediate action with what weight
our approval may carry:
"The Editor of the Dally Nebraskan:
"What Is to become of athletics at
tho University of Nebraska? This Is
tho question, Mr. Editor, which I
think ought to bo brought to the mind
of every University student. The
Board of Regents has decided to put
us off tho campus. At loaat It has
located a building tp be built this fall
That's the kind wo do. "Just as good as ever" Is the condition in
which a watch or clock leavos our hands. Wo value our reputation
too highly to let It get out in any-ffthor condition.

upon our football Hold and has mado
no provision for another field.
"It seems to m.o this Is not right.
Athletics' form a distinct, department
of our University and deserve to lie
recognized and. given some considera
tion. They form a large department
In overy Institution of any importance
in tho country and Nebraska's athletic
record Is one of which alio may well
"Wo have attained a standing with
Minnesota, Chicago, Michigan, Indiana,
Illinois, and Purduo, all of whom wo
have mot In some branch of athletics
within tho last year. After attaining a
standing of this kind, It seems too bad
that wo are forcod out in the. cold
without tho least provision whatever
for our needs.
"Mr. Editor, I think the students
ouglit to object to this and let their,
objections be known before It is too
late. An athletic field cannot bo built
upon a moment's notice and wo can
not afford to lag behind for a yeai;
or two. We .might fall bohind and not
bo abloto Keep the position "which we, I
have attained by long, .hard work. ,
' "There has' boon sohie talk of ath
letlcB going to the State Farm, but
that Is utterly Impossible. Already
we have sonic men whom we cannot j
get- out for athletics because of the
time it takes', and if wo go to the j
Farm this number will bo many times j
larger. Tho athletic department has
long boon trying to rid itself of the '
professional athlete; that Is, tho one
who conies to school merely for ath
letics and does as little school work i
as ho can and still remain on the .
team. . . .
"If we go, to the Farm, or to 'any .
other place off of the campus, that is
about tho only kind of men that will
bo available for our teams. Men who j
conic here for work and wish to do i
something in lines scholastic will be
driven from -athletics by tho increased I
amount- of time they take. At the
present time our Held is close to the
University and wo have sixty and sev-,
Onty men out for football. Some of I
them do not got out until lato in the J
afternoon uqw; even as late as live1
o'clock. These men would bo shoved '
out and our team gi'eaUy handicapped.
"Then there is the objection of
diminished attendance at ourgames
and the expense of transportation" of!
our leanis iu me i' arm.
The only solution of this difficulty
would be tlie purchase of two blocks
north of tho University. This will
glvo us a good athletic field and drill ,
grounds. These blocks will never be i
any cheaper. In fact, every year thej j
advance In price and new Improve- j
meiits are being made which mean a (
dead loss to the University when it ,
does buy them. Tho estimated value I
of these two blocks is seventy-five j
thousand dollars and now seems to be
the opportune time to buy them.
"If it is put off, athletics must sur
fer and the Military department will
be totally wlthouj a drill grounds and
,,, , A ,,. , ., A
will have to drill in the streets or go
to the Farm or fair grounds. It seems.
to me that the students ought to object
to tho taking of our field without any
provision for another. The. Chancellor
and Board of Regents have located
tho building which will be started De
comber 1, 1007, and it is time wo were
getting busy. Let every ono express
"EARL .0. EAGER."
