Nebraska, an second-cluHS mall matter
tlhdcr tho Act -of Conprcsa of March 3.
The publication as nnnounced by the
University Publishing Company of tho
Collegiate DaBket-Ball RuIcb for
women, as formulated by tho Rules
Committee consisting of heads of tho
departments of physical education of
the various institutions of tho middle
weBt and the editors and compilers,
Mrs. ft. O. Clapp, and MIbb Louise
Pound of tho University of Nebraska,
who wero reBponsiblo for the confer
ence leading to tho formation of tho
rules. According to the preface tho
rules are moant for tho many teams
wlshirfg a game not quite so swift, or
so taxing on the players, as the men's
game, yot enabling tho team develop
ment and concerted play of tho lattor,
as the Held line games does not. Thero

"Throughout the country three styles lot
rielthof short dor limited. Among tho
players, by (his time a very great num
ber, who, during twelve years, havo
playod on tho various regular teams
in the University of Nebraska, In all
sorts of contests, pfacticc;inter-clasB,
in tor-col logiate, not ono player has
over beon seriously hurt or injured not
even by a serioiis sprain; certainly
none have over been "overtaxed" or
Buffered harm from "over-excitement."
A canvass of tho names of tho players
during theBo twelve years, and their
records on and after leaving school,
renders wholly absurd the hypothesis
that girls cannot safely play basket
ball; or saiely play it without (he re
stricting field divisions. In general
as regards the possible benefit or tho
possible harmfulness of the game of
women's basket-ball to the players, tho
editors fool convinced that much moro
depends on careful supervision of the
games, and the careful preliminary ex
amination of those who seek to be
allowed to play, than depends on the
particular kind of rulcB by which the
ploy may be governed.
Male students of Chicago Universi
ty recently petitioned one of tho fn
Btructors asking for the removal of
picture hats from the clasB rooms. It
seems that the boys wore unabib to
follow demonstrations on tho black
boards because of these monstrous af
fairs, and a number failod, duo, of
course to the Inconvenience. Presi
dent Judson is now investigating tho
possibility of a further enlargement
in hats and unleBB proBpocts point to
more conservative styles will recom
mend that the ladies removo their
hats in class.
Needless to say these rules were
compiled and edited before the persis
tent campaign of the Dean of Women
seemed Jy a sudden and unexpected
Btroke to havo crowned Itself with
success. Girls' basket-ball without a
first team will be as dead here as in
other Bchools which havo none; or as
men's football would become, wore
there no first team aB a center of in
terest and goal for tho players, and no
contests. Ttyo girl's team at Nebras
ka has always been ono of tho best
connected with University life; and
its record for scholarship, to judge by
the list of honors achieved, has been
more brilliant than that of many
other organizations in school. Girls
who havo made the team have always
looked back on their evperlence on it
as one of the most valuable features of
their school life. The team frequent
ly playe'd but one game a year out
sldo of Lincoln, and to play this game
has been absent but one day from
school. Instead of being harmed physi
cally or morally by this game, the
The sophbmoro class voted at their
last meeting to assess each niombor 6f
the class fifteen cents to go to tho
Ivy Day fund. Each of tho claBsos are
contributing to this and tho sophomore
class should not bo behind. This mon
ey must bo in by May 1. So it is hoped
that each member of tho class will
pay up promptly when asked to do"so
by some of the committeo this week.
Each man, when ho pays will bo given
a ticket and he cannot got any of tho
feed on Ivy Day without this ticket.
Let us all, then, help the committee
and boost Ivy Day by paying tho tlf
teen cents promptly when asked.

But the question is not that of pro

participants, but rather let us ask why
is it so difficult for tho dean of women
and the head of the department of
physical education to agree on these
questions? If fy Is very wrong for the
girls to go away on basket-ball trips
why is Mrs. Clapp so in favor of It?
Her testimony on .the health "side at
least Is 06114115 strong. Of course
the desire to win sometimes carries
these things beyond reason, but the
record of Nebraska's department is
nothing of the sort, As tho leaUer
among western institutions its policy
will determine the fate of athletic con
tests for women. Do these contests
deserve such ignominous death?
