MlnnoBota's men are suro of winning

A sophomoro girl at tho Unlvorslty
of Missouri wrltos to the odltor of the
Daily Nobraskan with a query as to
why tho girls of tho university cannot
show their loynlty to their school and
Its teams by systematic rooting. Why
not, Indeed? Might not Nebraska girls
havo a rooting" section reserved for
them In which thoy might cfio'er undor
systematic direction aa well as tho
boys? Read tho Missouri girl's letter
nnd consider tho matter. Horo It lS:
"A sorious question Is confronting
tho girls of tho University of Missouri.
Havo thoy no college spirit, no en
thuslaBm over collego sports and col
lego undertakings, or do thoy simply
hesitate to display It? Why do not
tho girls root for tho 'Varsity team
at our football games? It 1b not neces
sary for them to bo boisterous; a
simple clapping of the hands would
help, or a concorted effort nt cheering
for the home tenm would seem moro
loynl than tho stolid Indlfforenco which
they preservo, .no matter what hap
pens. Tho Missouri girls aro enthusi
astic; they have college spirit as
much as tho boyB. Why not show it?

A CHANCE FOR YOU.
A chance 1b given overy loyal No
broska student to show his patriotism
this morning in a concrete and defi
nite form. The first football rally of
tho year, and ono of tho' most Impor
tant of tho series, will bo held In Me

NEW ELECTION 8YSTEM.
Tho senior and junior class election
of tho current semester both passed
off without any charge of ballot-stuffing
or fnlso manipulation in tho count
ing of tho votoB. That being so, sug
gestions ns to a chnngo In tho system
of holding cinss olectlons enn be mndo
without reflection upon any class con
tests of rocent dnto.
But although this year's campaigns
wore dovold of any such dlfllculty,
such trouble hns been oxporiencod In
past elections, and nt times tho fric
tion cnused thereby has assumed seri
ous proportions. Promiscuous ballot
stufllng was Btoppod a year or two ago
by tho Introduction of ballots of spe
cial color or shnpe, but there is still
nothing In tho system In use to pre
vent wholesale stuffing of tho count
by partisans controlling tho officials
of tho election Evon with colored bal
lots, tho vote can ho stuffed or nltored
If tho president desires to use his
power to that end.
It Is this condition of affairs that
caused Iowa, Kansas, and othor west
ern schools to adopt the Australian
ballot system In class olectlons. ' The
plan has been tried with most notable
success at Iowa and Kansas. At Iowa
thoro wero sovoral candidates In tho
flold for tho various offices. At Kan
sas the politicians went a step further
and nominated two completo tickets,
each ticket carrying a full list of nom
inees for all offices to. bo filled.
In both eloctlonB a completo regis
tration system waB adopted and only
those persons shown by tho records
to. bo entitled to a vote wero allowed
to enter tho booths. Tho rules of a
regular municipal election woro en
tered, with judges of the election and
with provisions for mutilated ballots.
Tho ballot boxes at Kansas were open
from 9 until 2.
Whllo it Is perhaps thought by
many students, that such a system as
this 1b cumbersome and not worth tho
trouble, reflection will show that It
saves much Ill-feeling and soro-hoaded-ness'ln
