Thoro is no placo like tho old homo
for tho man who has drifted away

Fling's tribute to Now England as

Tho death of Duko Trimble, the In
diana guard, at a hospital only a few
blocks from whoro his teammates were
beating DoPauw last Saturday Is a
.duplicate of what frequontly hnppons
in more Important affairs of life.
Often is man removed from earthly
oxlstenco Just as ho Is about to reach
that for which ho has long striven
for. Trimble had looked forward with
a groat deal of anticipation to the
work which ho expected to do in the
1909 season aB a crowning glory to his
past athletic record. But ho was taken
before ho achieved that which he
wished, oven as aro others in other
fields of life.
Manager Eager announces that he
does not intend to beg unlvorslty stu
donts to purchase tho season athlotlc
tickets which he hns just plnced on
sale. Ho believes thnt tho student's
rognrd for his own porsonnl ndvnntnge
should cause him to buy tho tickets
without other urging than thnt glvon
by tho benefit to his pockotbook.
In this Manager Eager is undoubt
edly right. Tho great advantage of
the $3 tickets is that accruing to the
students. Tho ntholtlc board, by
making the $3 rnto, set n price which
is fnr below tho combined cost of
oven n few of tho contests to bo held.
. Prnctlcnlly tho only ndvnntnge thnt
the board gains is tho receipt of tho
money early In tho season, when oth
erwise they might have to wait for
some of It till Inter In the yenr. Tho
low price nitty nlso influence more
students to attend tho gnnio than
would otherwise do so, but they do
this because. of tho advantage to thorn
selves; the board gains merely thru
the gnin to the individual students.
From 'very point of view nnd par
tlculnrly from thnt of his own pockot
book tho student should tnko ndvnn-
tago of Eager's offer.

THE CADET UNIFORM8.
Tho Daily Nebrnakan hns been crit
icised by members of the Pershing
Riflos for tho publication In yester
day's Ibbuo of a news art'lele giving
tho factB of tho dispute which has ex
isted between that organization and
a downtown clothing firm over the
sale of cadet uniforms. Tho Pershlngs
think thnt tho article attacked their
organization and was favorable to the
city salesmen. This is quite naturally
not to their liking.
In such a case it Is not an easy
mattor to diBtlngulsh between the sym
pathies which ono may feel for one of
tho parties to tho controversy and tho
legal rights which exist under tho
rules and customs of the university.
Tho nows article In question did not
nttompt to rolnto the sympathies of
tho Nebraskan; that is not a func
tion of the news columns of this pa
por. Tho story attempted to relate
tho facts at Ibbuo. If tho facts of the
caso did not favor tho Pershlngs then
they havo reason to Bay that tho
article wns unfavorable to their cause.
Aside from Its news space, the Ne
brasknn does havo sympathies, and In
this case Its sympathies are with the
Pershlngs. They have endeavored to
undertake tho sale of tho uniforms for
0 Popular Priced Furnishings
tho good of tho cadet purchasers and
of tho unlvorslty as a whole. The sym
pathies of ovory Btudont should be
with them In tho difficulty which they
But, viewing tho legal aspects of
tho mattor, nnd tho right of sales on
tho campns, tho Nebraskan feels that
tho PorslngB wore wrong In their at
tempt to secure a monopoly of the uni
form business. They undoubtedly
hnve no wrong Intention, and it Is ver.y
probable, as they allege, that an
agreomont with a former commandant
was rolled upon to make tho organiza
tion tho official purveyor of uniforms.
But no officer of the unlvorslty has
tho right, without tho special snnctlon
of the bonrd of regents, to fnvor one
sales-agent nt the expense of nnother.
Tho Pershlngs sny thnt they nro n
student organization and thnt they do
not como under the provision of the
sales, regulations. But immediately
any student organization enters into a
business relation with other students
It becomes a business agent nnd sub
ject to the same rules which govern
othor business agents. When the
Pershlngs began to sell uniforms, they
lost their identity, insofar as the uni
forms were concerned, as a student
society, and became a merchandising
company. Thnt being so, if they were
Allowed to sell uniforms on tho cam
pus, any other merchant has tho same

Pershlngs asked something which tho

It 1b a pity that tho Pershlngs
should bo undersold in the uniform
mnttor. Thoro is no reason to believe
that they havo exacted more than a
nominal profit for tho snle of the Biiits.
Tholr accounts havo been inspected
by tho auditing committee of the stu
dent orgnnlzntions nnd found correct
in every particular. They are of
courso unablo to meet cut-price com

goods at a loss, ns can their com
petitors. They are entitled to the sympnthy
of tho students, but as a matter of le
gal right, tho Nebraskan maintains
that tho Pershlngs cannot object to
competition on their own ground.
