THURSDAY, MARCH 4, 1909.
Nebraska is vory fortunato In being
nblo to have tho Wostorn Association
gymnastic contost held in Lincoln. If
' Nobraska is over to tako rank among
tho first schools of tho west in ath
letics it muBt dovoto its enorgies to
all linos of sport, instead of putting
its main enorglos into tho moro prom
inont lines of activity. It will do a
great deal for Nobraska's standing to
. havo representatives of all tho west
' em colleges como to Lincoln to con
test in nn ovent of this kind.
Everything that tonda to mako the
university moro self-supporting not
only in work but in play as well is to
be commenced. It is for this reason
thta such events ns entertainments
given by university organizations
shoul dhavo tho hearty support of tho
Btudont body. Every time n student
attends a university affair it moanB
that his support Is going to help build
up tho university instead of boing con
tributed towards the support of some
function that has no connection with
tho university at all.

A LEGITIMATE CRITICISM.
At convocation yesterday morning
Mr. lorman-E. HackelLmade a strong
plea for tho uso of-better and moro
puro English by unlvorslty students.
Ho declared that if tho beauty and
purity of tho English language is to
bo preserved our universities must
take a stand against tho corrupt form
that Is in voguo.
This la a criticism that is fully
deserved by students of American uni
versities, Of bourse It la duo to mero
carelessness, but tho fact undoubtedly
oxists that an amazingly small num
ber of words are pronounced correctly
by, tho average person. There seems
to bo a general, apathy to tho im
portanco of correct speaking.. Ono
seldom hears a professor Bpeak of tho
matter, the most flagrant grammatical
blunders are common in overyday con
versation, and eyen the most refined
pedplo do not glvo tho caro to their
. language that they give to other vastly
'les important things.
iThero Is, no denying" tho fact that
-;tho correct use of English Is ono of
ine murKH ui iruiy tuuuuu iicrouu,
lyitjh Just as much right can It belaid
ofthe person who speaks slouchlly, as
. of the one whq dresses slouchlly, that
his education has been neglected.
It is ono of tho prices that we havo
to pay for our newness In the United
E Flat Mendelssohn
States that wo havo not had timo to
caro for tho niceties of lifo. This
argumont has boon used in tho past
and vory proporly, of courBO, but has
tho time not now como when it is
necessary for us to think a little of tho
things that arc considered of so much
importanco by other pe'oplo? It can
only bo a reproach to tho good name
of tho United States that Amorlcans
cannot use their own tonguo with ac
curacy when they go abroad.
If it is doslrablo that moro caro
should bo given to tho uso of tho
English language, tho placo to Btart
tho roform 1b In tho universities of tho
land. Tho universities aro tho natural
leaders In nny intellectual roform, and
It chnnot bo hoped that anything will
bo definitely accomplished until tho
higher Institutions' of learning reform
thomselvoB. A roform of this nature
is not one that can bo promoted
through tho agency of any organiza
tion, as can bo done in tho ca-to of
Bano spelling; it is simply a matter
in which each Individual must appoint
himself a committee of ono to seo
that ho reforms his own spoech. It
is to bo hoped that tho words of Air.
Hackott will sink Into tho mind of
every student who heard him and will
bear fruit in tho form of a pure'' oso
of tho English language.
SPRING FOOTBALL PRACTICE.
As spring approaches ono heirs
talk of spring football practlco, and
tho good that such a thing would do In
developing n strong lootball team for
next year. This has been tried time
after time not only in tho University
of Nebraska but in all western uni
versities and It is very soldom indeod
that any real rosults aro accomp
lished. There .seems to be no Incen-
What I want you fellows to do is to
tako a look around town and see what
other storeB show in $4.00, $4.G0 and
$5.00 shoes. Then take a look at
mine, and if mine are not as good I'll
oat them, nnd bIioos aro not easy di
gested. But I know my shoes ?3.50.
Why pay more?
tivo either to get the men out or to
got them to work after they got oul.
A recent editorial in tho Daily Mis
sourlan outlines a plan which it In
expected will do wonders In that
school. The edltoriui Is us follows:
"Efforts havo been mado iv. tho past
to encourage spring football practice.
Put it has novor btcn very successful.
Thero has been no ospecini incentive
to biing tho men out on th) field.
Tjiero are hut fuw men who will spend
nn hour or two ovory day to perfect
ti'ujisolves in tho art of drop .kicking,
placo kicking, punting, and tackling
without tho excitement of a contest
close at hand. But a way has been
discovered to mako it worth while to
the men to como out, a way has boea
found whereby tho excitement of com
petition may be added to tho practice.
Members of the faculty havo decided
to offer prizes for such contests ns
may bo decided upon by the athletic
committee, Missouri has usually been
Weak In the kicking department ot
football. Likewise with few excep
tions, tackling has been of an inferior
kind. Theso two tilings aro sufficient
to lose a game, where tho opponents
aro anything llko pur equals, to say
npthlng of being our superiors. It is
in exactly these points of the game
that tho' tigers must show a decided
Improvement if they expect to win
from Kansas. Kicking Is an art that
11:00 A. M.
can bo learned by prnctlco; so, with
tackling. Tho coaches want to have
as many men out as possible for these
contests. It makes " no difference
whether you havo over played football
or over oxpoct to, come out anyway
and Bhow tho stuff that is in you,"
