of tho officers' and freshmen hops,
which woro held on Friday and Sat
urday nights of last week.
Each of theso dances Is reported to
hnvo fallen schort of paying expenses
by ahout $25. Clearly some hotter
system of running university dances Is
needed, for it is a shamo that such a
popular diversion as dancing should
bo so "overdone" as to cause an In
convenience of any kind to any one.
Fewer hops and a little moro judic
ious arrangement of tho dates for
theso would do a great deal toward
making the dances successful finan
cially and would glvo much moro sat
isfaction to tho dancing public.
Dancing at Nebraska Is porbably the
most popular pastime of the Btudonts
and it deserves to bo protected by
ovry moans possible. Tho prejudice
against the 'gentlo "hopping" is grad
ually dying out all over the country,
and dances aro recognized as a part
of university llfo by .faculties of all
tho leading universities of the coun
try. Dancing 4is no longer confined
to a frivolous set of students but has

Tho athletic board Wednesday
took tennis" officially under their con

sport at Minnesota. Wo commend
their action. Tennis has long been a
recognized sport at Chicago and Wis

their continued high standing In that
sport. The action of the board will
aid materially in keeping Minnesota

last year when sho had representatives

Abbott Praises Football,
NEW JHAVEN, Conn., Dec. 7. The
Rev. Lyman Abbott praised football
in his sermon nt Yale today because
it develops courage. "I do not know
enough about football," lio said, "to
know whether there aro more deaths.
and accidents than there ought to bo
in the game, but I do know that real
courage cannot be developed without
danger, and if real courage is devel
oped on tho football field, tho sacri
fice is worth tho peril."
A Junior Society.
"A movement to start a junior men's
society has been started in tho junior
class by several promlnont men of
tho class. Their idea is to have a
society whose members shall be elect
ed by the classes at their second
meeting in their third year. They
propose to have tho society consist
of about fifteen men. Tho purpose of
the society is to promote class spirit
in tho junior year. That such a so
cloty is needed, if it can bo kept out
of politics, Ib conceded by all who
havo watched the classes enter school
full of enthusiasm, and havo seen this
spirit die out till it is almost gono
in the third year. Tho seniors havo ii
society of a similar nature, except
that its members aro not elected by
popular vote. It has proved a groat
bonefit to the class and school, alBo.
The question naturally comes up, Can
such a society help class spirit? There
are several roasons why it will. One
of the most important Ib that it will
insuro a large attendance at tho first
two meetings of tho year. This means
that, the class will become interested
in its affairs and support them better.
Tho members of tho society will feel
that thoy owe tho class moro than
they would otherwise, and will puBh
its affairs to the great advantage of
the class. Such a society can be of
great importance to the school. This
much tho Innocents havo shown. It
is hoped that nil members of tho jun
I6r class will give this matter their
