Editor Dally Nebraskan:
The announcement in yesterday'B
Daily that the Athletic Board was tak
ing stepB to revise the ay at em of elect
ing student members, limiting tho vot
ing to men, abolishing the twenty-five
cent registration fee. and requiring
the candidates to be "N" men, Is the
moBt welcome athletic news tho paper
baa printed this year. It means a re
form that will restore the student body
to participation in the government of
Its athletlcB, in wlilcb the larger part
of them have bad no vojee for Beveral
The old system of election, what
ever Its merits, produced more "frat"
and "barb" partisanship, more atten
dant bad feeling and corruption, more
alienation of student support from the
board, ami more bad reputation for
the University among Nebraska people
at large, than wo could afford to stand.
It received its Indictment when the
"slush-fund" campaign, made possible
by it, went through, and the disgust
which that notorious and odorous epi
sode gave the moBt of the student body
was fittingly demonstrated In the last
two elections, when one hundred votes
and sixty votes were cast, out of twenty-five
hundred eligible voters, and
with a normal vote In other years of
five or bIx hundred. Think of electing
student members of a board which
controls our athletic policy, and
spends nearly ten thousand dollars a
year, with sixty votes! "Disgusted ,v
is a fair expression of the majority of
Btudent opinion, for the falling off or
five-sixths of the normal vote for the
last two elections was almost entirely
due to the conscientious boycotting of
the election by students who could Bee
no other wny to force tho Athletic
Board to recognize their proteate
against the system.
Past athletic boards, whose student
members were benefiting by the sys
tem as It existed, refused to reform,
through short-sightedness and selfish
ness. Tho present board deserves credit,
therefore, for the patriotic wisdom
which makes It realize that it must
ally with it the support and, enthusi
asm of the students. An nthletlc field
subscription by students will never
amount to anything, unless the stu
dents help to elect the board which
will spend the money. The board de
serves credit if it takes this step,
which will permit the students to
chooBe really representative members
and to hold an election without a
"frat"" and "barb" contest, without
"slush funds," without "buying .girl
votes," without dlsfranchising-the self
respecting members of tho student
The board's proposed reform is prac
tical. It -limits the voting to men;
not 2 per cent of the girls of tho
school want to vote or have ever voted
at this election unless some man or
some "slush fund" paid their registra
tion fee. It abolishes the trouble-making
25-cent fee; only fifteen dollars
was realized from this source by the
.board last year, and twenty-five the
'year before, a ridiculous sum for the
'board to take, in lieu of student sup
port, seeing that it must raise ten
(thousand dollars a year lor athletics,
almost entirely by virtue of such sup
port and co-operation. It limits tho
.student members to "N" men. This
;is a statesmanlike proposal. -It at
once destroys the possibility of divid
ing the University into two camps,
with a "frat" ticket and a "barb"
ticket, and centers the candidates on
well-known individuals, whom we stu
dents can choose between with some
fair discrimination. "N" men may be
jsure of receiving student support as
they merit it, without reference to
whether they are "frats" or "non
Ifrats." It is well known that there is a.Pan
;Hellenic agreement that certafn fra
iternities on alternate years Bhall
f'havo" a member on this board: it
jwill be a welcome change to not have
to choose between the favored sons of
