Under tho Act of CoiiKreRH of March 3,
TUESDAY, JANUARY 19, 190D.
Tho action of tho .Missouri Valley
conference at Its recent meeting In
KnnsnH City in voting, hIx to one, to
abolish the football training table will
come up for ratification at an early
meeting, when It will require two
tlilrdH vote to make the proposed rule
binding on the schools of tho "Dig
Seven." Nebraska, Who at the confer
ence last conference meeting fell in
with tho majority nnd voted agalnBt
retaining tho table, will be cnlled upon
to Hhow Its position again. Doforo
tfiat time, the Dally NobraHkan hopes,
tho dolegates from this university who
nttends that meeting will bo Instructed
tovoto to save tho needed Institution
to Missouri Valley football.
As far as this paper can learn there
are absolutely no evils connected with
the training table as conducted at
this school. On the othor hand there
are many benefits derived from Us
maintenance that go to glvo this uni
versity a strong gridiron team. It
affords tho players the opportunity of
getting a team spirit that It is impos
sible for them to secure Ji, any other
way. They come In touch with their
coach as they would not do If there
wore no tablo. They oat a llniited

under any other conditions. In Bhort,

tho training table does more toward
molding it winning (earn in football
than any other single factor, with tho
exception of the coaches. It Is a fine
thing, and there appears to bo no good
reason for doing away with it.
Who wants to abolish it? Iowa;
and for tho very, good reason that in
addition to being In the "Big Seven"
1 Is. also a member of tho Western
conference which does not allow its
members to run I raining tables. It
was Iowa that stirred up all the fuss
over this custom in the Missouri Val
ley conference. The Ilawkeycs hate
to see Nebraska, Ames and Kansas
with tables while they are forced to
bow to tho "Big Eight" rules.
Kansas, Nebraska's best rival, wants
to keep ttie table, and asks Nebraska's
support in trying to get the Missouri
Valley con(erenco to maintain It.
There ought to bo no" hesitancy in as
sisting the honorable Jayhawkers. The
Nebraska athletic board will have a
chance to show Its position today, and
it will ploaso a majority or the ath
letes and students of this school If t
will instruct its dolegato to tho next
meeting of the Missouri Valloy con
ference to 'vote to retain the training

notice that the editorial published In
these columns a few dnys ago and
pertaining to the proposed junior so
ciety has elicited a reply from Presi
dent Byerts, one of the promoters of
the organization. Tho editorial was
written, not with the intention to
bring any juniors- into disrepute, but
simply to secure public discussion of
a movement that looks "shady."
The aim of the Nobraskan now. as
It has been all semester, Is to advance
the Interests of this university nnd Its
institutions. It hns never attempted
to use its influence to work out any
little spites. It is far above that po
sition. Occasionally It has been forced
to do some gentlo knocking, but these
knocks have been needed, and often
have proved, In tho end, to bo' boosts.
In the present case the movement

WHY PAY MORE?
for a class organization which has agi
tated the minds of so many juniors
the Nobraskan Ib Interested In seeing
that the promoters of the society work
In the open. It is not the intention
of this paper to prolong the discussion
over the movement in Its editorial
columns. There is one thing, tliQugh,
that Mr. President Byerts' attention
ought to bo called to beforo the mat
ter Is dropped. In his article printed
in tho Forum today ho says the so
ciety Is being organized for the pur
pose of getting n means by which
class spirit may be aroused. If this
be the real object of the society that
aim is in a good way of boing defeat
ed before the organization Is perfect
ed. Instead of-molding a class spirit
up to the right proportions the pro
moters are keeping It down to a clique.
If tho select few succeed on tho same
track they are now pursuing practical
ly tho only united spirit tho Junior
class will be centered in the few men
who nre members of tho now society.
Those students who are not Invited
to join tho new organization are bound
to feel that they have been Blighted.
Already they have formed nn opposi
tion to the proposed society, and that
with good reason, too.
If there is to bo n junior society
which Is to bo truly representative of
the third year students, it must bo
formed without the slightest taint of
self-Becking motives. No mntter what
arguments the Juniors who nro behind
tho present movement make they can
not romovo tho suspicion that was
attached to their actions up to last
Friday. If thoy are to glvo the Junior
clnss a strong and respected society
they must come out Into the open and
allow e'ery eligible junior a fair
chance to become one of the members
or that organization. Unless they do
thnl they will defeat the very plans
which they say It Is their aim to have
Junior 8ociety Again.
To the Editor of the Nobraskan:
In your paper of last Friday you came
ouL In an editorial, "Who Was It and
Why?" In which you make a number
of charges which are based upon
"facts" which are not entirely true.
You charge that the proposed junior
society is being pushed by a "clique"
of men who's motives are corrupt and
farther, you charge that unfair means
are being used. You are also labor
ing under the impression that tho or
ganlzation has almost been complet
ed, when, as a matter of fact, the com
mittee which Is looking Into the ad
visability of such a society has not
even had a meeting yet.
It was a notlcable fact that at tho
beginning of this semester the Junior
class was entirely lacking In class
spirit. As a possible means of Increas
ing this spirit a few of the men moat
Interested In the welfare of the class,
suggested tho Idea of a class society.
T-hey did this with two things In mind.
FlrBf, If such a society could bo formed
which would help class affairs, then In
terest In the class would be aroused;
and second, even though such a move
should prove to be Impracticable after
a careful Investigation by a committee
from the class, still the discussion
caused by the suggestion could not
heli but Increased the interest of the
juniors in their class affairs.
What Is the effect of this move
planned in good faith by those inter
ested? The result Is that the No
braskan instead of critizlng the advls
Iblllty of the society, comes out In a
strong article denouncing the propos
ers as a political clique 'with wrbng
motives. I wish to put myself on rec
ord as saying that you are entirely
mistaken In your estimate of their
motives. I also wish to say on behnlf
of those most Interested that any dls-
a pair of
cussion of the possibilities or the ob
jections to such a society will bo of
great benefit to the class, as this wop
one or tho ideas causing the plan to
be suggested, and also because it will
give them more material to work with.
