In tho University for the past two
years, and who Is not tied up In any
way -with the T. N. E.'s, or any other
clique, I wlBh to call the attention of
tho University public to the article
of J. Carroll Knode, published In
Thursday's Issue of the Dally Ne
braskan. From what Mr. Knode said and
from the tone of his appeal to the
"barbs," one might be led to believe
that It was necessary to elect a num
ber of "frat" men In order to make
the new system of election a success.
The object of tho new system was to
eliminate politics, and to get a repre
sentative body of students on the
Athletic Board. This system would
only entitle one or two "frat" men to
election, while the "barbs," according
to the relative numbers of each ele
ment, would be entitled to the re
maining three or four membera.
These men should be choBen by the

to the secrecy of T. N. E., we can do
no more than give its general repu
tation about this and other universi
ties. Whenever a man begins to "mix
With the boyB" at the Baloons It is
the common thing to hear it said that
Theta Nu Epsilon Is "ruBhlng him."
Whenever you And an organization
with that sort of a reputation, you
find a reputation for poor studentship.
But as to the honesty of the organiza

regard of this organization for any
thing but selfishness and dishonesty.
Discontent and dlssentlon among
the fraternity and non-fraternity ele
ments are tho result of its conniv
ances. Below we publish a letter ex
pressing regret that thoae who in
augurated tho reform mnvnmnnt
should "pledge" themselves to sup

taiK about disregarding the effect of
me coming election upon the new sys
tem, but those Interested In the suc
cess of the system would have been
negligent had they stood aside and let
tho T. N. E.'s discredit the new rules
of election as a barb movement. The
indisputable fact as evidenced by what
Mr. Kroger says about "appealing to
follow barbs as a barb" is, that
at present entire disregard of fra
ternity lines is impossible. In order
to give the now rules a fair chance,
therefore, when unpartisanshlp was
known to be not absolute, the next
best thing and the only thing for the
supporters of tho now system was bi
partisanship. The meetings of the
fraternity men with barb leaders,
however, were at least held on tho
campus In the Y. M. C. A. rooms, the
sole aim being to get fraternity men,
who could be trusted as anti-T. N. E.
to get into the race instead of laying
down on tho new system and to make
the barbs realize the necessity for
abandpnlng prejudices against frat
men when they have enough principle

The students who elect these men
have a right to expect that they have
declared thoir intention of becoming
candidates of their own free will, and
were not Influenced by any clique
wishing to control University ath
letics. It Is to be regretted that those
Inaugurating the reform movement
were the first to put .a ticket In the
Held, and pledge themselves to sup
port that ticket, 'regardless of who
Bhould subsequently declare his inten
tion of becoming a candidate. If
these so-called reformers am 'Mnwn"

pledging themselves to support a cer

upon before they had a chance to se

t And now, my fellow 'Ujarbs," I ap
peal to you'fas a "barb'' and for the
best interests of athletics In the Uni
versity, to disregard what might be
said to you regarding tho effect the
coming election may have upon, tho
to come out for what is square.
Tho whole affair amounts to this:
The T. N. E.'s are sore about tho
abolition of the twenty-five cent vot
ing tax which gave the fraternities
a leverage In the election and through
mom tne t. n. e. element; they ar.e
sore about the recent involuntary res
ignation of some of thoir representa
tives on the board. Accordingly they
have tried two things, first, to dis
credit the reform movement as "barb,"
and, secondly, to maliciously and
falBely charge the supporters of the
new system with putting up a ticket.
In view of the number and character
of fraternity men that are In sym
pathy with the reform movement their
first charge Is groundless. In view of
the fnct that there ' Is In It for the
fraternity men who have thus "or
ganized" with the barbs solely to get
out representative candidates and
give the new system a fair trial, ab
solutely nothing in the way of polit
ical plumB or honor who, will say
that' tho second allegation of the 'T.
N. E.'s is .anything bqfc a hoax? Re-
