The Dally Nobraskan last semester
was slncoro and Btood for good prin
ciples, but In tho enthusiasm for its
cause It allowed ono reform to go too
far without making protest. Tho
Dally should havo Boon that cer

Crafty Coach Williams of tho Uni
versity of Minnesota has loBt none
of his cunning and artfulness. Pass
ing years chang not tho wily Gopher
coach. Each spring may witness the
loss of moro than half of tho Minne
sota football veterans, but tho suc
ceeding spring Dr. Williams bobB up
with a froeh aupply of excellent ma
terial. Failures, condltlona, and grad
uations daunt him not. Faculty re
Btrlctlona and conference rules aro
no barriers to him. If ho wants n
good plnyor for hla team ho gets him.
This aubtlo trlckory was woll exhibited
In tho manner In which Quarterback
Georgo Cnpron wns brought buck In
to the Gopher fold this fall.
Last seaBon Capron was the lead
ing drop kicker In tho west and ono
of tho best In the wholo country. His
too work brought defeat to both Ne
braska and Ames, and tied up tho
score In tho Wisconsin gamo Walter
Camp and other football authorities
concedod him a high place in tho 1908
Bhoes. So Coach Williams caught
Capron by tho coat tails and pulled
him Into tho Gopher camp over tho
faculty fences. He cared not for
university credits. They are cheap
when the football supremacy of Min
nesota is at stake. He feared not
public opinion, either, for he haB
boon playing his tricks In tho lime
light for several years.
There Is something about Dr. Wil
liams' work In the case of George
Capron which should mako any man
but a butcher hold his nose. It 1b
best described by that adjective often
hurled from tho bleachers at an um
pire "rotten." Nebraska and the
other achool8 which meet Minnesota
this fall ought to demand more than
an explanation from Coach Williams
and tho rest of the Gopher athletic
authorities. Surely hero Is a case
for Investigation by tho purity ath
lotlc board of Nebraska.

A Word to Students

What do You Know about Budd
Being in the Shoe Business?
Hundreds of students have worn Budd $2.50 Hats the past
few years. This season Budd makes a new bow to new and old
Unl men with a new Budd Store at 1415 O with $3.50 and $2.50
8hoes. Young men's snappy shoes at a "cheaper" price. The
new store has candy $2.50 hats and furnishings. And the old
dump, at 1141 O, will be headquarters for students for their
hats, their furnishings, and "party" supplies. Look me up. I
am a better fellow than ever.

Innocent, and It should have defended
them If It waB the duty of tho Ne
braskan (and It surely was) to as
sist In reform, It was just as much
its duty to protest when that reform
went so far that It caught and pulled
down Innocent men.
Tho Dally NobraBkan this semester,
while It believes reform is necessary
at times, does not begin tho year
with a storehouae full of ideas on
how the University should be run or
what changes should be made in tho
laws governing it There will be no
attempt to seek out weak spots In
,tho state school. Situations and con
ditions will be handled as -they pre
sent themselves1. ,
Often in the past this paper has
held aloof from expressing opinions
on various University movements and
functions. Its attitude on many occa
sions has been apathetic. A college
dally occupies a position in Univer
sity circles not unlike that of a city
paper in tho community in which it
circulates. Its opinions are needed
to assist in the progress of the peo
ple moylng in its field. The Dally
Nebraskan will aim to follow out the
work of an ideal college paper and
will try not to shirk its duty. An at
tempt will be made to give an edi
torial expression where it seems one
football ranks. But Capron is not a
brilliant student and last spring failed
so miserably in his studies that he
loft the Minnesota school a delinquent
and thus became ineligible for foot
ball this fall. On thlB point, a Btu
dent, writing to tho Chicago Tribune
only last Sunday from Minneapolis,
said: "Georgo Capron, who made a
national reputation as a drop klckor,
will no longer play with Minnesota.
He fqll behind in his studies during
the winter and finally left college.
Capron's loss will be a great one,
and there seems to be no one In his
clara to replace him."
Until last Tuesday everybody not
well acquainted with the ways of Dr.
Williams believed that George Capron
had played his last Minnesota football.
On that day, however, news was Bent
out from Minneapolis telling of the
election of George Capron as captain
of the Minnesota eleven to succeed
Captain Dunne, who committed sui
cide last month.
What had been done? Crafty Dr.
Williams needed George Capron on
his team this fall. He did not care
that the quarterback was delinquent
Ho knew, moreover, that tho strength
of the Gophers this season depends
on a klckor of the caliber of Capron.
He had no other man among his can
didates who could fill the 1907 star's
