In soloctlng Dr. Condra as tho man

dlntt mado a cholco in which every
orio who f knows lipr Condra can most
KonrCtly4 agree No man In tho unl

a' woll round'pd comploto college life
tit' tho UnivorBlty of Nebraska than
hoT and no man has bo earnoatly( and
consistently championed clean ath
letics and clean scholarship. Tho
cholco of Dr. Condra Ib an apprecia
tion of his tlroloBB work to raise tho
standing of tho university.
A Chinaman has boon initiated into
tho Ph Bota Kappa fraternity at Cor
nell. It is highly fitting that in tho
lfighest honorary fraternity diffor
ohceB of raco should not bo allowed
to mako, any difference. No matter
.t what racpa. man belongs, intellec
tual capacity is allko deserving ou
.recognition , and if a Chlnamun do
Boryos tho highest scholastic honors
it would1 bo tho grossest injustice to
keep thorn from him bocauBO of his

race. By making puro scholarship
tho basis-of admittance tho moaning
of tho Phi Bota Kappa pin haB been
mado much greater.
DR. HADLEY 8PEAK8.
. It is a question that, is always a
yltal ono to students to know Just
how, much outs)de reading one should
attempt to crowd Into tho timo that 1b
occupied in going to school and what
thq nature of this reading should bo,
P,roaIdent Hadloy of Yale has recent
ly 'discussed the question from the
point of'ylow of- ono who has studied
, it, for year and, his wprdB aro worth
of repeating? , Ho says:
t "It is of almost measureless conso
qtionco to an. educated man that ho be
' widely read that ho have' tho lovo of
reading, which oyer inspires and
.moves him to ' gain for ,hlmsolf . all
knpwledgo and culture, and power, and
enjoyment that reading can give.
But if one, is ever to her a reader, In
the truo and Ijest, meaning of the
word, Jtjs almost absolutely .essential
. ixsii the abjt of reading and the
Interest .of the. mind in Its, should bo
formed and, awakened Before the age
of college graduation, ,
"The college, years are of lnestim;
a,blo importancq. in this regard,, Few
men, as iyce brieve, who" are notrqad,
ers, with tho genuine love of reading

years. In tho caso of tho compara

tho, oxcoption , which t proves tho rule
thq loss of tho oarlior timo, is irro
parabio, or 1ft at loasta great mis
fortune. Tho oarly,,timo was .wastod..
It is no easy task to mako up for it.
In tho mattor of tho largost attain
ments of tho lifetlmo, it is well nigh
lmpossiblo to do bo.
"It may, bo proporly said and with
emphasisthat; tho student In his, col
logo yoarB should sot aBido d certain
portion of ovory day for reading, and,
that ho should as conscientiously and
faithfully dovoto his timo to its pur
poBO ns ho dovoted tho sections of tho
day which aro roqulrod for what is
strictly callod his college work to tho
objoct which thoy havo in view."

''I am a man
"Moro Binned against than sinning."
Tho vacancy created in tho faculty
soat of tho athletic board ovor a
month ago by tho resignation of Pro
fessor Phillips ought to bo filled by
tho appointment of somq progrosslvo
man to Borvo out tho unoxplrod torm.
Tho naming of a successor to Pro
fessor Phillips ought to occur soon,
for tho board now, with ono mombor
lacking, is loft In a condition that
may at any timo boforo tho closo of
tho year bring forth legislation not
wholly congruous to a policy tonding
toward greater things in Nebraska
With Professor Phillips retired, tho
board 1b equally divided botwqen stu
donts and faculty mombors,. thero bo

cordance with tho spirit of tho rules
governing the athletic body, also orig
inally provision would not, havo been
mado for drawing ono moro mombor
from tho faculty than from tho stu
dent ranks. Tho undergraduates aro
now balancod with thoir superiors in
voting power and could, with tho aid
of ono faculty vote, control legisla
tion. Tho Nebraska board needB some
now blood, and now is the chanco to
inject a little into its yoinB.
In selecting a man for tho vacant
chair the senate can do no bettor
than tot return t tho board ono whom
it so summarily dismissed from it
last spring, namely Captain John G.

ber of the athletio board last year ho

tering the conditions of tho athletes,
dovoted a great share of his timo to
his dutlOB as board member, und Was
accomplishing moro for tho advance
ment, of Nebraska in tho atholtlo
world than any of his colleagues.
His methods deserved no censure.
Tho wrong ho was alleged to havo
done was only an Imaginary ono. Tho
truth, of this statement somo of tho
"roformera" ot last year now realize.
Somo of tho studonts who carried
on tho purity campaign last spring
wore sincere. They believed thoy
wero doing cornhuskor athletics a
great good in Btirring up an "lnveatl
gatlop," but, llko.all roformors, thoy
lorrod and did Captain Workizer a
great injustice. It Was a wrong that
can bo righted at tho present oppor
tunity by returning tho commandant
to the athletio board.
His re-election to the board would
please a vaBt4majprlty of tho Bte
dents. He is the kind of a man they
like. He ijof the .type of progressive
