through their enthusiasm, havo boon
ablo to keep up a certain amount of
interest in tho gamo.
Tennis is a gamo that appeals to
a much larger class of students than
almoat any othor form of inter-col-Jegiato
athletics for tho reason that
it does not make such a severe tax
upon tho physical endurance of tho
player as othor sports and can bo
thoroughly enjoyed even If tho player
cannot devote enough timo to it to be
come an export It 1b a branch of ath
letics that has been .almost entirely
neglected at Nebraska and one that
doserves to stand in the forefront
of all college sports.
At other western colleges tennis oc
cupies a place among those coljogo
athletics that attract the attention of
tho students through tho honor that
attaches to tho successful player.

baseless scandals find their way Into
papers of tho stato It cannot bo ex
pected that either tho people of the

that a bureau be established to givo

tho promise of doing an Invaluable
amount of good to the university, and
it is to be hoped that it will be put
into successful execution. With such
