Many of the older heads about the
university are rejoicing to note the
conception nnd manifestation of a
college spirit at Nebraska the like of
which has never been known hero
Although equal to and oven mirpass
Ing eastern colleges In many respects,
yet wc aro constrained to admit that
in the mattor of university spirit the
student body at Nebraska has hereto
fore lagged far behind the student
bodies In schools of even less prom
inence and Importance than our own.
However, this state of affairs is BWift
ly vanishing and the spirit which is
being manifested here this fall bids
fair to increase in strength and grad
ually to become more and more firmly
Imbedded In tho hearts and minds of
our students, until In the near future
we shall boast of a "Nebraska spirit"
which will rival In intensity, sincerity
and strength the far-famed "Yale
In a talk to tho students at a re
cent mass mooting Dr. Condra de
plored the non-exlstenco of tradition
and legends in connection with col
lege life at Nebraska. Ho attributed
to this In u great measuro tho fact
that we had not a' stronger collego
spiilt here, and suggested as a remedy
the Immediate inauguration of some
such traditions, or rather tho Inaugur
ation of customs which will soon de
velop into traditions.
Suggestion Bears Fruit.
Spurred on by these suggestions
and by the favorable sentiment which
followed, the two lower classes ap
pointed committees to confer with Dr.
Condra and Dr. Clapp In regard to
holding a "class scrap" of some kind

Tho sophomores havo alrendy an

Chairman Mallery of tho sophomore

who has skill in any of those events
should be present and tako part in tho

The nature of the 'big "scrap" In
which everyone of both classed may
take part, has not yot been finally
settled. The prosent intontion is to
havo a large rectangle marked off on
the gridiron and havo tho members of
the two classes line up outsldo of it.
At the firing of a gun they will all
ruBh for the rectangle, and for tho
next twonty-flve minutes tho member
of each class will try to put out and
keep out of the llguro the mombors
of the other class. At the end of this
period the. class having tho moBt rep

will have won the so-called "battle
Scrap To Be Fierce.
Whatever tho nature of tho scrap,
and the presont intention will very
probably bo followed out, tho fight
will be a fierce one as tho prestige of
each class for the remainder of the
year will be at stake. Each class may
have as many representatives In this
scrap as if can muster, provided they
are eligible according to ther ullng of
the eligibility committee. TIiIb rul
