Entered at the postofflco at Lincoln,
Nebraska, as second-class mall 'matter
under the Act of Conrrcss of March S,
Theae dreamy spring duyB ought to
bring forth considerable song frojn
the poets about the campus. The
Cornhusker Btaff will be glad to listen
to all productions. Is there a lack of
literary or artistic ability In the stu
dent body? No! Only a lack of in
terest in things not directly called to
One of the greatest accomplish
ments of some educated men is their
ability lo concentrate their attention
on the matter before them. An out

ing to Bettlo the matter In "a con
servative manner," but thoy are get
ting a good deal of that kind of ad
vertisement that doesn't count when
the legislature is In session.
Paper is so cheap nowadays that
there Is scarcely any justification for
writing In printed books, and espe
cially in library books which are pub
Ik property. The mere fact that this
is an offense punishable by a fine of
from ten to one hundred dollars is
Hot as much a reason for care in this
matter as that interested students
of a university all ought to refrain
from uch childish practices.
1 am not sure that I can say any
thing which has not already been said
by some of those who have written
on the question of electing student
members of the athletic board, but I
want to at least make it clear that.
In common with hundreds of my fel
low students, I am interested in the
subject. I am also 'desirous ofex
pies8lng the conviction that the pres
ent plan is unsatisfactory. We must
judge of any system by its actual
workings. Whether or not a system
is theoretically perfect matters little
if it will not work. Hence it is not
necessary that we exhaust our storo
of logic or sarcasm In proving that a
poll tax of twenty-five cents is not
exorbitant so long as the fact remnins
that its effects have been bad.
Whether we measure it from the
standpoint of a means for guarantee
ing tf healthy, stimulating Interest in
athletics' or as an aid to the athletic
treasury, it must be regarded as a
failure. While It was a temporary
success in raising money for the

Some of the sudents at Illinois Uni
versity recently took part in a prohibi
tion campaign which hub resulted in a
dry town and a dry student body.
After the saloons were ousted the stu
dents went farther and secured evi
dence to convict several parties of
selling liquor unlnwiuMy. The collegv
man who thus early Janes an active
interest in the affairs of the com
munity in which ho Is str.dyiix will
Invariably be a good citizen when
such matters are of more intimate in
terest to hinl, financially and socially.
The college man in politics as now
typified by Roosevelt of Harvard, Taft
of Yale, Bryan of Nebraska and Illi
nois and La Follette of Wisconsin
seems to be upholding the standards
which can rightfully be expected of
men of opportunity.
Does arty one think that the recent
demonstration of "student enthusi
asm" at Michigan Is "a good thing 'for
treasury, it did it-by methods which
reflected no credit upon University
standards of ethics. No branch of the
University needs money bad enough
to warrant encouraging a resort to
boodling campaigns in order to get it.
But at present we may disregard 'the
financial argument urged in Is favor,
for the ampunt of money it brings into
the treasury is a negligible factor.
Equally unsatisfactory has It been in
developing interest. It has resulted in
cutting the number of those who par
ticipate in athletic elections down to
about two per ent of the student
body. No- method of election can 'be
considered either popular or justifi
able which does not stimulate suf
ficient Interest to cause participation
in It by" a considerable portion of thoBe
whose judgment would bo valuable. A
method of appointment by some re
sponsible executive is far preferable
to a method of election in which but
a very small percentage participate.
In my judgment, the really vital
change suggested is that looking to
the elimination of the feature which,
when it has not resulted in "slush
funds," has resulted in apathy. .
