A POINT WELL TAKEN.
In a rocont Ibbuo of tho Purdue Ex
ponent, tho ofllclul student publica
tion of Purduo unlvorslty, appeared
an edltornl on tho subject of knock
ing that Is so appllcablo to conditions
at Nobraska nt tho present time that
part of It Is quoted below. The edi
torial Is as follows:
"So much Is being said in tho papers
of tho various cqllogo3 about tho
spirit of knocking that we cannot pass
tho theme without some statement, es
pecially now, as there seems to be
a good deal of harmful criticism going
tho rounds. There Is a difference be
tween tho knock and tho criticism.
Tho knock is always agalnBt tho sub
ject being treated; critlcsm may not
bo adverse. The knock is destructive,
tho criticism Is constructive to the
sentiment. Tho knocker usually glveB
forth Mb wrath after the possibility
for remedy has passed; tho man who
criticises has what ho has to say ready
in timo for tho good of tho cauBo,
which ho ropresentB. In othor words,
tho knock is nothing more than a ti
rade upon some custom, upon somo
past ovont, or upon somo Individual.
It has nothing In view at tho timo of
Us expression, for it is given by ono
who does not care ono way or another,
seeing that all tho things which he
desired arc not being carried out.
Healthy criticism is wanted nt all

times everywhere, but tho spirit of
the ronton 1b to bo despised upon tho
canrpuB as well as out In tho world."
r If tho truth stated in UUb editorial
were lived up to by tho students of
this unlvorslty we would havo a school
vastly different from tho Nobraska
that wo know. If every student useH
his powers -of criticism merely as a
means to mako what wo have bettor

There is no uso donying tho fact
that things at Nobraska aro ndt what
thoy should bo. Thoro is no uso clos

disgrace and shnmo that wo havo not

Is nothing galnod by refusing to admit
that our campus Is cramped for room

er a college has attained its highest
poHslbllltles and is accomplishing In
the fullest degree tho work laid out
for it'to do. These aro tho things that
it Is poBBiblo for tho student to
change. Tho fact that NobraBka has
not a line campus and a great ath
letic field are things which llo be
yond the regulation of the average
student. The fact that tho highest
standard of honesty 1b not maintained

no real, deep, unity of feeling nmong

that the rooters aro found willing to

Btudonts will not turn out In oarncst
support of unlvorslty functions, these
things aro matters for which the stu
dents aro sololy responsible, and
things which will keep Nebraska from
really being a great school no matter

Nebraska to think of these things.

FORMER CHICAGO 8TAR WRITE8
OF CARLI8LE GAME.
PICKS THE CORNIIISKER STARS
8ay Captain Harvey, Cooke and Kro
ger Were Leaders for Nebraska,
and Thorpe, Balentl and
Hauser for Indians.
The following article on tho Nebraska-Carlisle
football game was written
for the Chicago Trlbuno by Waltor
II. Eckersall, who wos umpire at tho
"Tho Carlisle Indian football team
decisively defoated the Nebraska
eleven at Antelope park this afternoon
117 to C. The weather was ideal for
the players, but too cold for tho spec
tators, who turned out In small num
bers to witness the conteBt.
"The Cornhusker'B downfall was due
to poor tackling and handling of punts.
Thoy Invariably tackled high and wore
brushed off or carried several extra
yards by tho concentrated attacks of
tho red men. The Indians kept their
feet In grand style and tho Nobraska
players could not cope with their of
fense at critical times. The pleasing
Xeaturo of tho game was the clean and
sportsmanlike play of tho entire Car
lisle eleven. Not a single red skin
played dirty football.
"Little new Btyle football was at
tempted by eithor team. Both olevons
rolled on lino plunges and swinging
end runs for their gains, while most
of tho attempts at forward passes and
onBlde ldckB failed. Onco tho Indians
worked a forward pass for a touch
down when on Nebraska's 10-yard line,
and this was practically the only play
of tho new game that was successfully
"Nebraska's touchdown resulted
from an Indian punt which did not
crosB the line of scrimmage and gave
the Cornhuskers the hall on the In
dians' 10-yard line. Three concentrated
drives off the tackles placed the oval
over the line for the locals' only scoro.
"Thorpe. Balentl and Houser played
grand football for the Indians, while
t'apt. Harvey, Cooke and Kroger
starred for the locals. Tho Indians
left tonight to meet Denver university
at Denver next Saturday in the last
game of their hard schedule."
CHICAGO, Dec. 3. Michigan's re
turn to the "big eight" fold, football
poBBiblllty much desired by nn influ
ential body of wolverine .alumni, but
ns yet hailed with no enthusiasm by
tho Ann Arbor athletic powers, has
been shoved into tho rear again. Tho
question of tno wolverine re-entry Into
conference competition will not come
before the "big eight' in any shape
this winter, as the contemplated Jan-
uary meeting of the conference will
not take place.
Coach Stagg of the University of
Chicago announced yesterday that the
January meeting would bo unneces
sary, as no objections will bo offered
by any of tho "big eight" schools
to the minor notions takon at tho ro
cont session. This will mako it Im
possible to bring up the question of
Michigan's position oven should tho
wolverines decide to arbitrate.
With the decision to drop tho discus
sion of conference affairs until next
June, the Michigan problem Booms to
be ended at least until after next foot
ball season. While a special session
of tho "big eight" could be called,
Coach Stagg thinks It practically cer
tain that this will not bo resorted to.
"It Is now certain that there will
be no more conforence meetings until
next Juno," snid Coach Stagg. "While
there has been a good deal of tal'K
about Michigan coming back, there
will not be any opportunity to talk it
over until too lato In tho year to
schedule games, I am satisfied that
the matter is ended."
Captain Walter Stoffen of tho 1908
championship maroons, who has re
ceived -an offer to coach the Wnhnnh
eleven next fall, said yeBterday that.
no woum not decide as to his football
plans until later. Ho has several
offers, and Is considering at least two
of them. Schoromor, who has been
suggested ns coach of tho Illinois basket-ball
team, intends to remain at
tho Midway and play with tho maroon
fivo this winter.
