Nebraska, as second-class mall matter
under the Act of Congress of March 3.
De Young and "Billy" RnniBoy were
on tho enmnus Saturday. It is bus
piclonod that they are hatching up a
political deal. This now coalition
ought to carry anything.
That tho Junior Prom was a success
is disputed hy no ono who attended.
Those annual occasions are what give
Bpico to University life. It is tho mem
ory of such that remains with us long
after the things learned in tho clasB
room are forgotten. The danger is that
somo of us may forgot that tho main
reason why we are here Is not to en
joy tho social life alone, but to develop
ourselves along all tho lines that tho

It Beems that Nebraska is right in
-style; or at least that she has company
in this happy custom. It is natural
that tho study room should bo a ren
dezous for social relaxation so long as
the students have so much time to
spare. Tho reports from last semester
however, are rather discouraging that
there is time to spnre.
To Editor of the Nobraskan:
There scorns to be a prevailing mis
understanding with regard to tho re
cent .action of the regents on tho
"Class Day" .question, many haying re
ceived the impression that if this new
Institution is established, the old cub-'
torn of "Sneak day" will have to be
given up. Thift-ls-not-the caBe. ' First,
a paper was presented to tho alx Deans
asking their approval of a request to
the Regents for a full holiday on this
occasion. These signatures wore ob
tained with .no difficulty whatever.
Three of tho Deans did not mention
"Sneak Day', 'at nil, Ono suggested,
that itvaB a rather cheap institution,
but affixed his 'signature tQ the docu
ment before making tho suggestion, in
order to emphasize tho fact that his
approval was in no Wise conditioned:
A second, Bimly suggested that tho
nnme'Sneak Day" should bo changed;
and a third, while speaking of it, ap
proved heartily and without provision
tho now plan. Tho Rogonts granted
the request and approved the estab
lishment of "Class Day" without' so
much ns mentioning "Sneak Day."
The matter, then, simmers down to
thlst oTho establishment ,of "Class
Day" has tho full consent of the au
thorities. A part of them have ox
pressed the hope that in view of this
now holiday ho Senior clasB might see
fit to relinquish tho old one. Any ac
tion with regard to this, however, will
be settled Bolely by tho will of the
class. This 1h certainly reasonable

Tho conclusion of, tho basketball
season was marked by a brilliant
though unsuccessful contest on Satur
day evening. The interest and enth.u
iaBm Bhown by the spectators was re
marked by many and the sentiment Is
quite general that the loss of tho"
gamo was a mere matter of luck. If
tho visitors are satisfied with the treat
ment tVey received, Nebraska is
pleased with the affair because sFe
has the knowledge that her team was
no more than evenly matched.
Presidents Jordon of Stanford and
Elliott of Harvard seem to be taking
the load- in seeking to Introduce into
American colleges the British game of
Rugby from which the American game
was modi tied somo thirty years ago.
The main objection made, to the game
ns it is now played is the 'obsession of
tho student body In the one iuVa vt
victory in football." Of course we
would all like to see a "multitude of
players and a diminution of rooters"
as pr. Elliott puts it, but is there nny
need of pushing auoh
at this period in the
history of the
Football has had its boom period.
That was at its height two years ago
when n western school proposed To
send Its team over to Japan. At that
time small New England academies
and high schools weho sending tcnmS
to play west ot the Hudson river with
schools with whom there was' no ri
valry whatever. Sucn dxcoroiuos put
the game in danger of professionalism
and with other objections to its rough
nos 5 were the cause of a complete
change in development. Since then
the number of Intercollegiate contests
has been greatly reduced, tho .ules
considerably modified until one impor
tant eastern school which dropped tho
game was induced to take it up again
laBt year. And now a movement 1b
starting in The two schools on the
Pacific coast to substitute the old
.English gamo for the game which
Americans have taken thirty years to
modify to their partiaj satisfaction, '
Th,oro are objections to the Ameri
can game. But it is getting too much
Jjlame for its own growing pains. Con
tinued opposition to ovils accompany
ing it is apt to do injustice to the game
itself. Football has passed the day of
extremes and Is now righting itself
of the clasp
is easy. It's

without needing radical measures to
bring It into line. The English gamo
which it is proposed shall displace our
present gnme is not suited to American
ideas. Wo believe in a little more vim
inspired by "the desire for victory"
than sport for mere sport's sake gives.
Why attempt to kill a good game by
one that would not last three seasons
in tho average American university?
The objection raised to tho nresent
rules wll have about as much force as
the proverbial objections to liberty be
cause of the crimes committed in her
