Six men havo heen chosen as rep
resentatives of tho university in tho
intorcollogiato contests next month.
These men havo been picked by a sys
torn of tryouts, a survival of tho lit
tost, and presumably they nro tho
best debaters available for tho task.
In achieving a selection as a mem
ber of ono of Nebraska's two teams,
each of tho six mon won an honor of
high ordor. Eminence in debate char
acterizes a man as a high product of
logic, oratory, calmness undor strain,
quickness and accuracy of thought,
and Intense concentration. It is un
questioned that a good debater must
bo a good student. Ho must be ca
pablo of hard and Bteady application
to tho task in hand. But that is not
all. q must also bo quick-witted,
able to defend hiB argumont against
all sorts of sudden and unexpected at
tacks. But he must bo thoroughly ac
curate, that ho may not be caught by
his opponents. Ho must be calm un
der the strain of rapid work amid dis
turbing circumstances during the pe
riod of tho actual dobato. And ho
must have at least nioro than modi
ocro ability as a public speaker.
It Is becauso of theso high require
ments that admission to membership
In tho iatercolleglato teams is re

honor. They havo won a month's
hard work work of tho most wearing
and tedious sort. For tho next four
wooks tho six team-members and tho
two alternates will bo busied prepar
ing for tho final debates. Thoy will
work undor forced pressure nnd with
unromlttlng effort. For nothing comes
without its price, and hard work is
tho Bharo of tho man who wins In de
bate a NEW "N" SYSTEM.
The athletic board is considering
tho Introduction of a new system or
awarding nthletic "N's," tho new
method to bo effective for this year's
football awards If tho arrangements
can bo made In the short timo re
maining. Undoubtedly tho present system has
Its faults and certain changes are to

move slowly in a matter of this im
portance. Especially should any ap
pearance of retroaction bo avoided.
