AN UNFORTUNATE ATTACK.
In tho current Issue or Tho Uni
versity Journal thero appears on edi
torial discussing the question of fra
ternities which, while It does not
make any definite attack, makes
statements that would bo Interpreted
as anything but complimentary to
these organizations. -After declaring
thot t the anti-fraternity bill is not
llkelv m 11RSK tlin nrnRont. InHalntnm'
the editorial goes on to say:
"The feeling that prompted tho In
troduction of tho measure is so strong
in tho stato that a needed reform
must come in those organizations or
their days aro numbered. Tho belief
is widespread that tho oxistence of
fraternities Is not helpful to tho moral
life of tho student body. In those, ns
in other societies, tho conduct of a
fow members may placo tho entire
membership in bad rqputo, It is
charged, too, that tho fraternities con
trol class and other college organiza
tions, to tho exclusion of equally
worthy students lacking in this sup
port' That such an attack as this at, tho
present tlmo is especially unfortunate
Is tho opinion that has boon expressed
generally by thoso .who havo read
tho editorial In question., That thero
is at ihis university, as at all othors,
a fraternity problem cannot bo denied
Mrs. E. B. Conent
by anyone nnd least of all by tho frn
tornltlcB thomHolvoB, but that such
an editorial as this Is Justifiable Ib en
tlroly another quostlon.
Following tho OXpoBiiro of what
took placo at a certain banquet hold
recently by Thota Nu Bpsllon a move
ment was started to bring tho offend
ers to tlmo for breaking tho rules of
tho unlvorslty and to provent any
such unfortunato'affairB in tho future.
Frpm tho fact that tho above editorial
nppoars shortly f after tho occurence
of the banquet and from tho fact that
Theta Nu EpBilon Ib un inter-fraternity
organization It would appear aB
though tho Thota Nu Epsllon movo
mont was a movement against fra
ternities. ThiB Ib about as far from tho troth
as nnything could woll bo. The Thota
Nu EpBilon movement hnB nothing
whatever to do with any movement
against frntornltlos; tho two problems
aro entirely distinct nnd aro bo differ
ent in thoir nature that any attempt
to treat of thorn both at tho same
tlmo would fdsult in hopeless con
fusion. Tho movement against Theta
Nu EpBilon has rocolved the hearty
support of all who wish a clean, pro
gressive school; a gcnoral movoment
to destroy fraternities would receive
the support or nono excopt a fow who
view tho quoBtion from a biased point
Tho odltorinl in question would
loayo tho Impression that tho unl
vorslty authorities wero opposed to
fratornitles and would tako the first
opportunity to destroy them. On tho
contrary, both Chancellor Avery nnd
leading mombors of tho faculty havo
declared that they aro not behind tho
bill now before the loglslnturo to abol
ish fraternities and that thoy aro
opposed, to any such measure.
Thero is always a tendency for
evory reform to go too far and in
clude tho Innocent with tho guilty!

it is a very pasy mattor to go too
far and not distinguish clearly just
what tho question at Ibbuo is. Tho
NebraBkan has stated its position
clearly with regard 'to tho organiza
tion known as Thota Nu Epsllon. It
believes that conditions at tho Uni
versity of Nebraska can never bo as
thoy should with this organization
In oxlstenco and oxortlng its baloful
Influonco In a)l university activities,
It must Insist, 'however, that this or
ganization in its true nature is an
intor-fratornlty direlect and that tho
niovoniont bo not confused either by
Its friends or its enemies as a move
ment in any way directed against
tho oxistence of fraternities.
