THE TASK TONIGHT.
Tonight NobrnBka ontorB tho llBta
In a battlo of Intellectual prowoBS
with roproBontatlveB of Iowa and Min
nesota. The annual debates of tho
Central Donating Loague are to bo
hold at tho flvo universities of tho
nBSodaton, Minnesota meeting Nebras
ka in Lincoln and Iowa contesting
with tho Cornhuskers at Iowa City.
Tho contests tonight aro by no
moans a minor or haBty matter. The
CornhuBkor debaters have been
tralnod for tho occasion to no less an
extent than were the football pupils
of Coach Colo proparod for tho grld-
Iron contests of last fall. At Iowa
City and at Minneapolis ablo men
havo been doing tho same sort ot work
in tho rhotorlc workrooms aB was un
undortaken by tho athletes who rep
resented tho Gophers and tho Hawk
eyes at Omaha and In Lincoln. The
efforts put forth tonight aro tho prod
ucts of tho most systematized mental
training of which men are capable
Considering this great work which
Nebraska's debaters havo been giving
to their task, and having in view the
importance of the occasion tonight as
a tost of their effort, university stu
dents should feel the spirit which will
causo them to rally to the support of
tho six menrchosen to speak for the
Scarlet and Cream. The football team
may loso one game, or two; it still
has other chances to rotriovo its glory.
Tho intercollegiate dobaters risk their
nil on one event, and they win or loso
entirely according as they aro vic
torious or defeated on that one occa
sion. Tho debate tonight, then, is Impor
tant. It means muqh to tho debaters
themselves, and it means fully as
much to tho school. Victory over
Minnesota particularly means tho de
feat of n rival who has twice already
this year humbled Nobraska In other
fleldB. Tonight Nebraska must win.
If possible she must take honors in
both debates, but In any case, Minne
sota must bo downed. Lot us feel that
tho contest tonight Is our battlo and
let ub como out In numbers to tho sup
port of thlB team of ours!
DR. PARKIN'8 VIEW.
In speaking to Nebraska students
yesterday Dr. Qeorgo C. Parkin of
tho Rhodes scholarship trustees
mado striking comparisons of tho
American and tho British unlversl-
o ties. Ho answered tho question of

was towards provincialism and nar
rowness. Whilo It is not presumod to criti
cise so eminent a scholar as. Dr. Par
kin, yet It seems that tho English
man may havo Implied things which
aro far from acceptable by loyal
Amoricana. His comparisons were
clearly quite unfavorable to tho Amer
ican atmosphoro and some of the
statements aroused some comment
among loyal students. Theso were
prone to deny tho fact that attend
ance at Oxford would glve Americans
tho broad-minded characteristics of
which Dr. Parkin thinks bo much.
,Yct it seems reasonable to believe
that Oxford residence would havo
just tho effect on American students
wlilch Dr. Parkin indicates. Resi
dence in any foreign country has a
vastly broadening effect. Perhaps
that is truo more of England than of
others becauso in England tho Amer
ican can meet others of his own lan
guage and acquire knowledge and
IdeaB quicker than elsewhere. He is
not hampered and confined in his own
narrowness his provincialism If you
please by tho difficulties of a strange
Lot ub admit Dr. Parking assertion
Just as ho mado it, that English resi
dence helps tho Amorlcan to acquire
a broad view. Nor lot us criticise him
for pehraps implying tho Englishmen
woro thomBolvoB equipped with a big-
ger view than Americans. He did not
say this, and it is possible that he
would not intentionally do so. When,
bo does, then there, Is timo to criti
ciso him, and criticise him strong
ly, for tho Englishman himself is no
torious for his narrowness.
Americans may bo provincial; thoy
may bo capablo of learning broad
views from tho English; but aB to
broadness in tho British themselves,
Americans will not, and cannot In
view of the facts, admit it.
CUTTING THE FORMAL8.
Tho action of tho twelve Nebraska
fraternities In decreasing the number
of formal parties by half will result
In widespread good to tho university
as a whole and to the fraternities in
particular. The stop which haB been
taken is one well calculated to allay
certain criticism of tho university
and its students which has frequently
embarrassed tho school authorities in
Thero is no question but that some
taxpayers of tho state aro opposed to
tho further extension of tho Btato uni
versity as an institution of tho strict
ly higher branches of learning. This
opposition in certain quarters is
based upon a variety of causes. Not
tho least df theso Is tho bollef on the
part of some of tho university stu
dents aB a class aro spendthrifts and
idlers. Tho frequent formal parties
and other social affairs aro pointed to
as evidences of tho presence of socloty
men and women rather than of schol
ars. The formal partios aro undoubtedly
duo largely to tho fraternity elements.
Only two annual formals aro given by
students aside from the Greek letter
organizations. Under these condi
tions, tho action of tho frats in volun
tarily voting to do 'away with a con
siderable part of tho social frill so
distasteful to soma of tho state's tax
payers cannot but havo a most favor
able impression. It indicates a spirit
O B O OOOOO0OOOO3
of appreciation for tho right stand
ards of scholarship, and, incidentally,
of economy. It is to be hoped that
thoBo who havo opposed tho univer
sity because of alleged social .ex
tremes will noto this move by tho
Greeks and tame their opposition ac
cordingly. Dan Qutlebcn, '00, together with his
brother, C. T. Gutleben, are engaged in

struction, 935 Monadnock Bldg., San
Francisco, Cal. Mr. Gutleben wrltos

campus haB not lessened his Interest
