A FATAL 8ACRIFICE.
Tho death of Byrno of tho WoHt
Point oloven as a result of injuries
sustalnod In tho Harvard-Army game
of last Saturday is a shock to collogo
men all ovor tho country. Tho revolt
ing dotnils of his injury as well as
tho promlnenco of the schools con
corned glvo tho ovent an Importance
which has not been glvon to similar
acoidonts for several seasons.
Undoubtedly tho first fooling which
gonoral readers of tho proBs reports
felt was one of horror at tho naturo
of the accident and of aversion to the
gatno which was responsible for It.
The early dispatches showed this in
their query as to tho probable offect

But sober second thought In most
casoB caused a reversal of Judgment.
Undoubtedly football was responsible
for tho death of tho army cadet.
Without question, too, baseball, track
athletics, and gymnasium work have
been responsible for numerous deaths.
Under tho now rules football fatalltloB
would bo comparatively Infrequent If
tho contending teaniB would take ad
vantage of the chances for avoiding
massod plays. Almost ovory serlouB
Injury Is tho rosult of massed forma
tions, and it is thiB evil w-lilch tho
rulo-makers are constantly endeavor

Unquestionably such a fatality as
that of Saturday Is shocking and re
grettable but reason should bo used
beforo tho groatoat of college games
Is unjustly condemned.
It Is encouraging to hear an em
inent scholar say such thlngB about
tho American univorslty system as
Professor George Ellott Howard said
at convocation last Friday. It gives
tho student a fooling of optimism and
of faith in his alma mater which is
Dr. Howard Bpoko Friday on "The.
Gorman University add Its Rotations
to American Schools." Ho made a
comparison of tho essential character

mitting tho superior character of tho
foreign schools in certain things. But
ho nevertheless declares that wo
should not model our schools after
' tho Gorman standard. American uni--'

A UNIVER8ITY MIN8TREL.
8omo engineer hnB suggested that
It wntllfl tin n nnvnl nnd ItitnrnnHntr
stunt for tho niomberB of that col
lego to give a minstrel show some
tlmo during tho early wlntor. Ho be-
liovos that such an affair would givo
entortalnniont to students and Inci
dentally aid to spread abroad the fame
of onglnoorlng men In stage roles.
It Is a good thought and ono that
might well be followed. Only tho Ne
braBkan suggosts that, Instead of con
fining tho affair to one particular col
logo, It bo mado a univorslty minstrel.
It should be easy to find somo organi
zation which would bo willing to take
upon itself tho responsibility of ar
ranging for tho entertainment in re
turn for a' sharo of tho profits. With
somo group of individuals to. start

NobraBka needs more social events
of this sort. Tho univorslty has for
several years past bewailed its lack
of traditions. Within tho past threo
yearB Boveral customs hnve been in
augurated which It 1b hoped will de
velop Into traditional occasions. But
with tho exception of tho county fair,
tho Olympics, Ivy Day, Chartor Day,
Sneak Day. and one or two other af
fairs, tho university Is without "tra
ditions." Tho time to start things Is right
now. If the onglnoerB care to give a
minstrel, by all means lot's have It.
If It can bo arranged so that tho
wholo university has a part in tho
ovent. all tho bettor. But anyway,
lot's have something of the sort this
With the beginning of the serleB
of class social affairs which are lib
erally advortlBed about the campiiB,
thoro are appearing numerous posters
calling the attention of Btudents to
tho particular ovent to which their
patronago Is doBired. 8omo of these
pouters aro merely sheotB of card
board with lotterlng to denote the fea
tures of tlio affair which thoy are ad
vertising. Othors aro moro preten
tious and In somo of them exception
ally artistic designs are shown. Tho
water colors and crayons already
posted presage fully as artistic a
series this year as that which ruled
last winter, when tho different organ
izations vied with each other In tho
I beauty of their posters.
But if the university Is to have- such
a high grade of advertising, It should
provide a proper place for posting tho
bllle At present the only bulletin
board provided with lock a'nd key
and, sad to relate, tho appurten

Just Inside' tha south door. This

some encouragement would be offered
to tho more extended ubo of such post
