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.
