Draw Up Resolutions Dr. Lees of tho
Athletic Board 8aya Nebraska
Will Probably Not Enter."
At a mass meeting or tho students,
at Kansas tho other day a set of reso
lutions was drawn up expressing dis
satisfaction at some of tho proposed
regulations for tho Missouri Vnljoy
Conference. The principal objections
of the students centered around tho
question of their going into the
league if Nebraska stays out. At the
meeting called recently for delegates
from ottch of tho schools in tho pro.
posed league, all but Nobraska were
represented, and Kansas University
students object to tho plans then
made for the union of tho schools of
the Missouri Valley, unless It Is cer
tain that Nobraska Is 1,0 bo one of tho
number. They object nlso to tho
presence of Washington In the league..
A sot oi resolutions wore drawn up
with the hope of preventing tho rati
fication of these plans by tho Kansas
authorities. They wero as follows:
Whereas, the Board of Directors of
the University of Kiinsas has recom
mended certain rules to be adopted
by tho Unlvorslty Council ro.latlvo to
tho formation of "Tho Missouri Val
ley Conference of Faculty Mpmbors"
consisting of the following Universi
ties'. University of Ipwn, University
of Kansas, University of Missouri, Uni
versity of Nobraska, and Was'hingtoii
University, and believing f.hut suchjiri
organization will bo dojrlmontal to
tho athletic Interests of thVunlyersIty
of Kansas,
Therefore" be it resolved that it Is
the sentiment of tho student body:
First, that this conference should
iot bo organized unless the four Btato
universities above named all agreo to
enter this organization.
Seponrt, JJuit JVashlngton University
should not bo admitted to. this .ojganl-
,ittlon. .4
Dr. Lees, when interviewed as to
the nttltude of the AthlotlfiBoard
toward the matter, said: "Indeed, I
don't think we cared veyy much
whether we got into the league or not.
Tho question that is puzzling us is a
to what will be gained. Nebraska niity
have to (conform anyway to the 'Big
Nino' rules in order tq get contracts
with the schools of that l,oaguo, and
that will mean our abfding by the
'three-year' rule and the 'ono-yMi'
rule, excluding Freshmen from pirtiqi
patlon in nthjotics for two gcmeafefii'.
Persqnnlly, I am n favor of the 'one
spmester' rirte. There Is no suflicipnt
reason for keening a man.ou,t of c'm;
dthletics after he has shown his will-
ingness 10 wont, out since pur teams
will be made up; probably of , men ell
glable to nay jin'der' thp ,'BIg Nino""
rules,, whqit, then, will bo tho adynri
t.age of following the 'one-semester'
rule? Further, if wo go into this"
Missouri -Valley Conference, it, means
tnat sooner or later, Nebraska will be,
placed at the mercy of the other states.
