Tho Nobraskan welcomes the news
that Iowa Btudonts favor tho table.
The fact' remains, however, that
Iova's representative on tho confer
ence board doos not favor tho table.
In this he apparently fallB to correctly
relloct the ;lddaH of"lho mon whom ho
Is HUppOBCd t6' rdltt'CBcht. Tho thing
for tho Iowa mfcn 'tb do, If thoy aro
roally as desirous of restoring tho
tablo as thoy profess to bo, is to In
struct 'their dolegato to shift Ills voto.
At prosont Iowa is, ofllelnlly' at least,
committed to tho anti-table faction
If this position is not the real atti
tude Of the Hawkoyea. it 1b up to thorn
to bring about a change.
Nebraska university has before it
JUBt now a golden opportunity. Stand
ing at present at tho bottom of the
list in tho Central Debating League,
tho university has UiIb year an excel
lent chanco of shifting itself well to
wards tho top of tho Bcalo. By win
ning both of tho debates this year,
Nebraska will rank among tho lead
ers of tho league.
Tho debates are to bo hold next
Friday ovonlng, ono at Iowa City and
ono in Lincoln. In both contests Ne
braska has an excellent chanco of
-victory. Tho income tax question,
which is tho subject of tho debato, 1b
a proposition capablo of extensive re
search and wldo knowledge. Tho No
braska teams havo realized thiB and
they havo been put to unusually atron
uoub offortB during tho paBt fow
wooks. Considering tho experience
of the twelve mon who reprosent Ne
braska and Its opponents, and with a
knowledge of the work being done by
tho Nebraska squad, it would seem
that Iowa and Minnesota must needp
put up a hard fight to take a winning
from tho Cornhuskors.
Tho homo dobato In Lincoln Is that
with Minnesota. The Gopher-Corn-husker
contest possesses peculiar in-,
ter'est because of tho fact that Minne
sota has already this' year defeated
Nebraska ln both football and cross-
country. The NebrnBka debatorB aro
very anxlouB on this account to beat
their northern rivals and the Lincoln
dobato will bo a warm one.
UnlvorBlty faculty members and
Btudonts should roalizo tho importance
of theso contests and tho attendance
should be Hitch aB to give tho dobaters
all the aid which can come from a
THE FOOTBALL CAPTAINCY.
Tho Bolectlon of a captain for the
1910 Cornhuskor football team will bo
mado this week, If no unforeseen de
lays occur. Immediately after tho
award of "NV by the athletic board,
tho men receiving tho letter will b'o
called together to pick their loader
for next year.
At present there are three men who
seem to bo given preference for the
1910 leadership. Each of these three
is a playor of ability and a man wor
thy of respect. Every ono or them
has declared it as 1i1b opinion that no
unworthy political scheming or potty
prejudices should bo allowed to have
a part in the selection. Each empha
sizes IiIb willingness to lot his name
go hoforo his follows on its merits.
Such sentiment as this 1b of the
right sort and should bo followed in
practice as well as In statement. A
repetition of certain past disgraceful
oxperloncos in the selection of Ne
braska football cnptalns cannot bo re-
Classy snow shoes,
high arch, military
heel, vicicolized water
peatod. What was tolerated In Uip
past will not bo allowed under the
present condition of faculty and stu
dent sentiment. Tho 1910 selection
must bo free from undue political ac
tivity, and ospeclally from any charge
of unfairness or fraud. If it is not,
some other moans of solection will be
forced upon tho athlotlc authorities.
Not all of the college students in
Chicago aro of "the rah rah variety,

money than in acquiring proliclency
in their s'tudlos. Figures compiled by
officials of tho University of Chicago
show that during the last year 8f0
students in that institution earned'
$62,282 to help pay their expenses.
The occupations in which thoy gained
this, livelihood ranged from menial
tasks to tho moro dignified ones of
clerking, but those who waited on
tables, washed dishes, and scrubbed
floors earned $22,381, while tho latter
received but one-third of that sum.
Tho compilation roveala tho fact
that tho custom of having paid ap
plauders in theaters 1b extonslvoly fol
lowed' In Chicago, tho students earn
ing $4,390 through that meanB and by
Tho showing made is a gratifying
one. It provos that young men in
search of knowledge aro no more
ashamed than' their fathers wore to
resort to any honcBt means to koop
thomsolveB in' college. Boys realize as
well as tholr parents do' that when
they leave homo for tho last stage of
tholr education tho time has come to
roliovo tholr fathers of at U,ast a por
tion of tho expenso of that training.
To help them in this endeavor most
largo colleges maintain "bureaus
through which thoy cap secure em
ployment. In the case of Chicago
many students aro residents of tho
city and do not have to resort to this
expedient, but in numbers and earn"
