Entered at tho po5tofflcoat Lincoln,
Nebraska, as second-claim mall matter
under tho Act of Congress of March 3,
Now that tho Athletic "Bonrcl elec
tion Is over, what wnVthe trouble all
When the voting tax was abolished,
depriving" the fraternities of absolute
control, there was some tallc by fni
.trnity men of either voting malicious
ly or not tit all. Upon consideration,
.however, the "frat" mep decided to
join in the election.
Thereupon the Tlietu Nu Epsllon
element, which was most Injured by
ihe reform, Bought to place tho frater
nities n the poaltlon of requiring of
their members that all who should
run, as fraternity candidates, should
be nominated by the pan-hclenlc (con
ference. This was Inconsistent with
tho spirit of the reform and so failed
of endorsement by the fratornltles.
Finally the Thota Nu Epsllon or-
, - i. i
ing In; the election. As it hnB turndd
out, the vote has been' large and' the
fraternity candidates have' received n
fair proportion of those cast.
Tho most regrettable feature of tho
whole affair is tlmt seven of the eleven
fraternities In this University, al
though forced to endorse the new
method of election, have been Influ
enced by. Theta Nu Epsllon In ltslaat
nttempt at securing control to unjiiBtly
condemn the very men who have been
Instiumeital In securing Its adoption.
Edltflr Daily Nebraskan:
A statement has recently appeared,
endorsed by some of the Nebraska
University fraternities, that the un
dersigned have banded themselves to
gether for political success, nominated
a slate,' and endeavored to have elect
ed student members of the Athletic
Boaid whom they could control.
It is true that the undersigned were
pnnrrnnd in nresentlng before the
University Senate the reform election
measure' whose adoption was made
by tho unanimous vote of that body.
At the close of ths campaign before
the Senate, the undersigned, partly
at the suggestion of the Chancellor
and several members of the faculty,
decided to ask some strong represen
tative men to enter themselves as
candidates in the coming student
election, in order to stir up interest
among the students, to Incite other
men to enter the race, and to frus
trate the attempt of the Theta Nu
Epsllon men to boycott and discredit
the election. They therefore asked a
number of men, nine In all, to become
candidates. One refused to enter, one
entered and later withdrew his name.
At no time was any man promised
success or the backing of any organi
zation by the undersigned. All were
given to understand In advance that
their candidacy meant no sinecure,
as It was certain that a number great
er than the five who could be elected
would run, that they would be at
tacked by representatives of Theta Nu
Epsllon and their motives questioned,
but that it was their duty as patriotic

The Nebraskan. exposed, thfp. plan of
the T. X. B.s and In the discussion
that followed some regrettable things
were said on both sides, of which no
one Is more willing to retract than tho
editors of this paper. But that tho
poUjy of the Xebraskan was justi
fiable Is evidenced by the results of
the elccflon. It was the plan of iho
pan-helenlc conference, under 'the In
fluence of Theta Nu Epsllon, to post
pone the publication of their resolu
tion charging the reform olomortt with
supporting a ticket to tho last mo
ment, so that an answer would noL
have been possible before the elec
tion, and in tho meantime tho frater
nities would have refrained from vot-
Unlvorslty men to run and .help se
cure a representative election. Tho
undersigned have workod during tho
last woek's campaign to get out a full
vote, not to elect any particular slate
or ticket. Thevoto caBt yesterday
represents a larger proportion of the
University than In previous elections,
wnid Its results are therefore satlsfac-
toy to the undersigned.
Xo motive of political self-seeking
has prompted the undersigned In their
actions in the Athletic Board matter.
They depend on their reputations
formed during several years at the
University to sustain them ngalnst a
charge of unpatriotic political activity.
