HeiiHon of 1007 will lmvo fornmlly

or away from the goal of tho cham

Prospects, as they appear from an
early season standpoint, aro excellent
for a basketball team at Nebraska
this year which will be a real suc
cess. Wo believe that the team as it
lines up at present is as thoroly rep
lesentatlvo of the University and of
Nebraska athletics, as any simfliar
aggregation has ever been. Its mem
bers aro gentlemen in every sense of
tho word and there is not tho slight
est question as to their ability- as
Raises 8erlous Objection to Chancel
lor's Plan for Athletic Field.
The Nebraskan is in receipt of tho ,
following communication in answer
to an article appearing in yesterday's
"Dally Nebraskan: I
"As a student interested in clean '
athletics, I wish to object to tho Bug-1
gostion made yesterday in your col-1
uinns, that Lincoln business men be
asked to contribute to a stock com-'
pany, to buy or operate an auueuc
field for the University. It is true that
tho moneyed men of Lincoln aro many
of them directly benefitted by the
largo games played on Nebraska
Field, and it might accordingly bo i
thought fair that they contribute In '
this crisis-to tho securing of a field,
which alone makes athletics possible.
"Lead us not into temptation," is tho i
basis on which I object to tho stock
company sclieme. 1 do not think tho
school can afford to snydicato its ath
letics In any manner that will allow i
any persons but students and faculty i
to have a voice In their management
and control. For this position the fol
lowing reasons aro presented:
"1. Tfie pressure on manager nnd
coach to make a winning team, in or
der to attract the crowds and pay
expenses, is chiefly responsible for
the professionalism, direct and Indi
rect, that has arisen very genorally
in college athletics In reccmt years.
Any step that will magnify this com
mercial phase or the game, or that
will increase tho financial pressure on
tho management, will havo the effect atc)ck company proposition necessar-

Our Sale of Women's Suits
It Is our purpose to close out every
winter garment, and the prices have
been reduced so low that large num
bers have been sold and are selling
each day.. When this saje began we
had over 700 garments in our stock,
and while many lines have been
closed out, there is still a good selec
tion. If you are thinking of purchasing
do not delay. Each day lessens the
number from which you may choose.
Now is a good time to buy all Suits and
Cloaks at Half Price

to increase the sub rosn professional
ism; and the stock company proposi
tion has that flavor.
"2. A number of Lincoln business
men have contributed in recent years
to money payments, made directly or
indirectly to Individuals as compen
sation for playing on the University
teams. While this has doubtless been , Saturday. 19.
done without the knowledge or con-1
sent of tho University authorities, and
perhaps with not even the connivance
of the coach or management, it is
nevertheless common talk among
business men of Lincoln, and is fairly
well known among students. This
underhand profesWonalism can not bo
carried on openly; no one dares to
solicit funds for it from students; and
ny implies the admission of outside
influences into control of University
affairs, and it Is not right.
RE S U LTS TELL.
Wo claim to bo tho best CLEANERS and DYERS In Lincoln and
aro horo to prove it. Our methods and machinery aro tho VERY
LATEST and our workmen tho best thnt money can secure.
We clean tho finest dresses and robes without danger of fading

ered. All goods thoroughly sterilized. Wo do altering and repairing.

representatives will havo to offer

ist It is fair to believe that this is
will contribute most liberally to a
stock company proposition for con
trolling tho nthlotic field.
"3. If these men aro giveu any such
important Influence in university ath
letics as owning stock in tho company
tilt owns tho athletic field will entail,
tho offect will be to Increase tho ten
dency toward professional taint. These
business men, who may bo honorable
enough in their own linos of activity,
are, nevertheless, very genorally out
of sympathy with tho anti-professional
t,h,QlP is but ono thing aside from the i ideal of colleges; their Influonco hno
roferoo which can determine to any
great oxtont tho outcomo of tho game.
Tills is tho support of tho studont
body In attendance and organized
rooting. Tho gymunsium should bo
crowded to its utmost limits and tho
football rooting loaders should resume
their old-time sway.
Lot us make tho Ilnwkeyes feel that
Nebraska is behind hor team with
heart nijd soul and that wo will bo
content with nothing less than a clean
oeen corrupting in tho past on uni
versity atliletics; and to give thorn of
ficial recognition or to increase their
Influonco will onlargo their demoral
izing effect on tho clean systom wo
try to maintain at Nebraska.
"Wo cortainly need tho field In order
to havo clean athletics.
"In conclusion, we cortainly have a
right to clean athletics; but we must
got tho field from tho state, or from
donations made unconditionally to tho
school, without admitting any exterior
influence or control in tholr uso. Tho
