Soyon Nebraska students aro taking

Griffith and his assistants know tho
gamd to play in whipping an olovon

may well watch out that Iowa doesn't

Iowa Is not a foe to bo scorned; she
will at least mako a game fight.
SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST.
Tryouts to Beloct momberS of the
1909 debating squad wore held yes
terday and a number of men were
chosen to do tho active work of pre
paring for the Intercollegiate debates
in December. At that time Nebraska
will debate tho incomo tax question
with Minnesota and with Iowa, both of
these universities being raonabors of
tho Central Debating League, organ
ized a few years ago largely througi
Between now and then the members
of the squad will put in much time
and effort Jp gathering and properly
arranging material for tho contest. Six
of tho men will bo selected to mako
the arguments In the final debate, tho
others merely getting university credit
for their work. All of which is a sam
ple of tho doctrine of the fittest. Tho
best debaters In tho university aro
picked by competitive tests for the
squad. From these tho best aro
taken, once again by 'competition, to
represent their fellows on tho plat
,form. Incidentally there is a chance
for tho squad to do a lot of work in
the- meantime, which is put In tho
hands 'of tho speaking representatives

' THE WAR OF THE R08E8.
With the campaign started yester
day, the university becomes for two

Weeks tho site of a series of battles
betwoon two opposing armies tho
army of tho red rose and tho army of.
tlio white rose. Each sldo in the
mimic warfare Is striving not to an
nihilate tho other, but rather to gain
additional warriors for Itself. The bat
tlo Is waged not so much between
tho two armies as It Is by both against
lie university girls in general.
,Tho object of tho "war" Is to gain

Will rank at tho top of the llBt for the
number of girls enrolled in its studont

tii.b University of California and the
IIhncsota State University equal Ne
braska In Y. W. membership. With
$0Q more girls enrolled in, Lincoln, Ne
braska can claim her superiority over
fith of these presont equals.
.i'But entirely aside from tho ambition
that all Nebraska students should
tiavo-to. starid. In the front rank, tho
Y W. C. A. girls deserve all' the' sup
port that can bo given them. It will
be well, indeed, if Nebraska can point
to a larger Y. W. membership roll
than any other university. But that
Is not all. Y. W. C. A. membership

among girls, and for religious and In
tellectual progress. Whatever tho
association wants and needs It should
be given'. JuBt now it wants numbers.
Univorsity girls should see to It that
it gets them.
Tho second football rally of tho
yoar Is to bo held at 11:20 this morn
ing in Memorial Hall. At this time
an attempt will bo mado by tho root
ing leaders to Incite enthusiasm for
the Iowa game Saturday.
Students responded weU to the call
for a Minnesota rally. Let tho ro
sponso tills morning be equally as good
or hotter. Professor Stevens' new uni
versity song, which has been the sub
ject of favorable comment wherever
sung, will be practiced with the band.
This should bo enough In Itself tp
bring forth a crowd. Come out and
glvo your opinion on tho now tuno.
Thoro will bo other "stunts" also, well
worth the hearing,
Be there 11:20 Memorial hall.
THE 8TATUS OF THE LAWS.
It is to be hoped that bofore the
presont election troubles are smoothed
away, some definite action will be
taken fixing the status of the law col
lege students in academic elections.
Under tho past custom freshman laws
have had a right to vote aB sophomore
.academics. Senior academics taking
freshman law work could, qualify Jp
freshman law elections. During the
past year there havo been several at
tempts of senior academics to take
tephnlcal advantage of this situation
to force themselves Into sophomore
elections. They have held that ob
freshman law's they had the franchise
right in the second year academic
class, . .
No matter what the technical aspect
of tho situation may be, it is mani
festly unfair to permit men to vote In
throe separate classes, particularly in
two classes of the same college. Somo
ruling should bo made prohibiting
such practices. Either the freshman
laws should not be allowed to vote at
all In academic elections, or else,
which is probably the better solution
participation in two election in tho
samo collogo should be prohibited.
Tho time to attend to this is right

now. Let the class presidents get to
gether and consult with the registrar
in order that a doflnlto ruling may bo
made boforo other class elections are
held. As long as tho presont situa
tion oxistB there will bo trouble. It
Bhould be stopped Immediately.
A GOOD 8UGGE8TION.
The following suggestion from a uni
versity alumnus In a cooil nnn. Thn
rootjrig loaders and students in general
win ao wen to consider It favorably.
Tho letter follows:
"To tho Editor, The Dally Nobras
kan: We aro soon to havo a now ath
letic field In reality aB well as in
name; wo already havo a football
team and loyal rooters. Now, why
can wo not have some distinctive cus
tom at our games, which will bo both
significant and good to look upon?
"In some df tho years past, whon
our band paraded tho field during tho
interval between halves, there was
with them a husky color sergeant car
rying a flag a beautiful banner of
Scarlet and Cream. When these col
ors paBsed, evoryone aroso and stood
'"Now, Mr. Editor and readorsof tho
Rag, would- this not be a good 'stunt'
to revive? It surely increases patriot
ism and Increases our loyalty for Old
