The Nebraska Art Association for

in the Fine Arts gallery a collection of
pictures of extraordinary value. The
exhibition will continue for two weelfs,

citizens of the state, the member

of residents of Lincoln. Since its or
ganization the society has each year
brought to Lincoln a large number of
pictures by the best American and for
eign artists. These have been exhlh.
lied and the proceedB have been de
voted to the purchase of pictures for
the permanent art gallery which it is

Professor P. M. Fling, one of the
leading members of the association,
yesterday devoted the lecture hour of
his European history class to a plea
for greater Interest In the exhibition.
He deplored the faot that In past years
only about one-tenth of the Univer
sity students had availed themselves
of this privilege of looking upon th
works of the masters. In Prqfesrior
Fling's opinion no student should com
plete his course without attending the
art exhibitions hot only once, but
many times. These exhibitions have
caused Lincoln to be known in the
East as offering exceptional privileges
of the kind for a city of Its size. It
should be regarded as a disgrace for
a student to bo obliged to confess to
his Eastern acquaintances, who know
that Lincoln is on the map because of
the famo of Its arTTexTiibTtlonB, that

During the Christmas vacation Pro
fessor Lees was in New York City, act
ing as the representative of the Uni
versity of Nebraska at the annual
meeting of the National Intercollegiate
Athletic Association. Soventy-flvo in
stitutions, located lrt all parts of the
United States, wore represented. Eli
gibility rules, scholastic standards and
faculty control of athletics wore some
of the principal questions discussed.
A marked advance in different parts of-
Jhe country was 'indicated and espocjh
ally the fact that professionalism was
proving much less troublesome.
The meeting was In session all day
of Saturday, December 28, thus giving,
time for a number, of papers to bo
read. The ol3 ruleB committee was re
elected with one exception.
A long report on summer baseball '
was submitted by the committee which
had that subject under discussion. The
committee came to the following con
clusions: r
"Baseball stimulates the most seri
ous violations of the amateur rule,
first, from the-standpoinf of 'frequency
of- occurrence;? secondly, ? from fthe
standpoint W Conflicting practices' for
regulation; third, from the standpoint
of conflicting opinions concerning the '
-seriousness of tlie infractions; 4md
fourth, from the standpoint ofdiffer- ,
ences in the remedies suggested for
bettering conditions. - I
"Because of its peculiai4 dual profes
sional and amateur character, baseball
has destroyed finally the faith of many
in the amatour law. The Validity of
the amateur law Is involved. Baseball
vs. Amateurism stands before the bar '
"History and common sense show""
that In all public contests the bona
fide professional eliminates the bona
fide amateur. The two .classes cannot
exist in contact If we wish a class of
athletics for Ihe bona fide amateur he
must be protected from the bona, fide
professional. It is clear that the un
satisfactory conditions surrounding '
the present rule must, be eliminated
and 'that the principle of. amateurism

survive." ' -- "- v:
