BAD FOR NEBRASKA.
From the standpoint of tho good of
Nebraska athletics it is most unfortun
uto that an election of student mem
bers of the athletic board should bring
forth tho bitter factional fight that
was witnessed yesterday. The bitter
ness that was developed in tho fight
was not of tho kind thnt Is fqrgotten
in a day or an hour and for this rea
son the events of yesterday will bo de
plored by those who have at heart only
the success of Nebraska athletics. Thb
crying need nt Nebraska is more pull
ing together and less pulling apart.
It is particularly deplorable that the
blttornesB of tho fight led to tho uso
of methods of campaigning that aro,
nt best, on no higher level than thoso
used In ward politics. Both tho stu
dents of tho university and thoso out
side have tho right to expect that oven
tho bitterest fight shnll not degener
ate into challenge and counter chal
lenge and accusation and counter ac
cusation. As long as there aro men
on Nebraska's athletic board thoro
will bo differences of opinion as to tho
host way in which athlotlcs should be
managed, but this hardly gives license
for tho numerous and bitter charces
made during tho fight of yesterday.
It has, long been considered that tho
clement of student control in athletics
was ono of tho most valuable privi
leges that tho student body possessed.
If, uow'over, tho participation In tho
management of athlotlcs by the stu
dents means tlmt tho school must bo
torn from top to bottom once oyory
year with dlssentions that spring from
this. then, tho privilege is hardly worth
- --1 111 111 - in" ii t r i i r i i
the cost. It can hardly be oxpoctod, if
tho upheavals of tho last two years
continue with each election in tho fu
ture, that tho university authorities
will not feel it necessary to make
somo chnngo in the system of athletic
WHY NOT PAY UP.
With a totnl of 218 seniors graduat
ing from tho academic collogo and
about thirty-five graduating from tho
law school, those in char go of the
senior play roport that only seventy
pooplo have paid tho assessment
levied on tho senior class. With a
largo casto, and ono that is capable of
producing ono of the best plays over
scon at Nebraska there Is no reason
why tho play Hhould not bo given the
moct, hearty support.
When the feollng gets abroad that
tho class and the school as a whole
have little interest in the success of
tho senior play, It will become a her
culean task to keep the interest of
thoso who take part in its production
and who aro now giving so much of
their time to make it a buccosh. Only
threo moro weeks of active school
work remain, and quick nctlon must
be taken by those who have so far
failed to pay their dues or the play
will be seriously injured. Assess
ments may be paid either to Miss Hoi
comb or .Mr. Lctton.

BRYAN NOT BEING CONSIDERED.
Will Not Be President of University of
Thero is a rumor in circulation at
Minnesota that Mr. Bryan is being con
sidered for tho presidency of tho Uni
versity of Minnesota to succeed Dr.
Cyrus Nortjirop. Despite tho fact that
tho report has heon rigorously denied
on all sides, It will not down.
Dr. Northrop declared recently that
Mr. Bryan had never been considered
for tho presidency of the university
and was not being so considered now.
"Thoro 1b, nothing In tho story," said
Dr. Northrop. "Bryan is a great man,
but he Is notoriously a partisan and as
such he is Ineligible for tho position".

it were offered him. Ho can make for
