characteristically frank statement of
'his vIqwb on tho document. His re

1b no :llttlo benefit for university stu
dents to hear a critical characteriza
tion of tho various messages from
year to year by a man who is capablo
of such an analysis.
Sioux City officials aro unable to
figure out what sort of "plan" a cor
tain Nebraska student is Inquiring
about in connection -with his thesis
work. From some opinions expressed
of tho Iowa river town, it lacks prac
tically any Bort of a plan.

' DRAMATIC8 TONIGHT.
Tonight the University Dramatic
Club gives its first play of this year.
"What's the Matter With the Profes
sor?" is 'tho title of the production,
and it is pronounced to be excep
The Dramatic Club has worked
hard' lb seeding to mako tho play a
success and it should bo given proper
support in its effort Nebraska dra

which tho art is glvon at many other
schools, although tho univorslty prob
ably ranks with tho majority of tho
wostorn stato universities In this re
spect. Tho timo has como, howover,
whon Nebraska Bhould stop ahead of
its neighbors in this lino and approach
tho work of institutions further oast.
Such' an udvanco will not bo accom

such ontorprlsos as tho dramatists
may stago. Tonight 1b tho first chanco
cif tho'yoar for Nebraska students to
show how they fool on tho dramatic
question. They should not fall.
TO REMOVE DANQER8.
In Instructing Dr. Clapp to voto for
any changes in football rules calcu
lated to romovo, unnecessary dangor in
tho playing of tho ganio, tho Nobras
ka athlotic board has taken a sonslble
stand. Whether justlflablo or not, tho
fact romainB that-thoro Is at present
an antl sentiment of conBidorablo
strength demanding a chango in tho
gridiron rules or elso tho abolition of
Tho injuries tracoablo directly or
Indirectly to football havo unquoBtion
.ably been more numorous and moro
.serious this year than at any timo
sinco tho 1006 rulo rovlslon. Not
only this, but tho accidents havo boon
sensational in character and thoy
havo occurred in some of tho impor-
tant games of tho season. This has
at that $3.50.
resulted in giving tho fatalities a pub
licity which they would not otherwise
havo attained. Tho Increasing num
ber of accidents and tho largo. nmounT
of publicity have thus rosultod in
arouBlng again tho opposition which
forced tho 1906 changes.
At prosent tho general sentiment
seems to bo that some changes must
bo made. If tho friends of tho gamo
do not revise tho gamo, tho opposition
will forco action against it This bo
ing true, tho beBt thing that can bo
dono is to havo sane rovlslon by tho
loaders of tho gamo. Nebraska's ac
tion In sending its delegate to tho con
ference Instructed, to voto for such re
vision as wlli ellmlnato dangor is thus
in lino with tho correct policy. Other
schools aro likely to do tho same, and
another revision similar to tho 190G
shift may bo looked, for.
KEEP A LEVEL HEAD.
StudontB ol universities and col
leges, just beginning to,fnco tho prob
lems of real life, uponrocolvlng tholr
first honors among their associates
aro likely to permit their heads to bo
turned theroby. Continued buccoss
often brings permanent pride. When
this pride slozes tho individual it is
noted by his comrades and silently
criticised. This silent criticism sojm
develops into contempt.
Men in all walks of life, at ono timo
or another find thomselves placed In
circumstances in which pride strives
to assert itself as master. But tho
true man never allows prldo to be
come his master. Neither does .ho al
low it to dominate his feelings nor his
disposition toward others. Even in
tho midst of resplendent success, ho
does not allow any interpretation of
events which would bring pride to
himself. Ho is over willing and eager
to attribute his success to the efforts
No matter what success may attend
an individual, the relations which ho
formerly' held, with his companions
and fcllowmcn should not bo altered
in tho loaBt. Respect, honor and lovo
aro duo thoso cool-headed men who
prosorvo tho same balanco both in
advorsity and In success. Missourlan.
