to a close. This has been jho biggest
religious movement' that has taken
place In tlio university for-yeajs.
A considornblo movoment is on foot
among certain students of tho'uuivor.
slty, tho purpoBo of which Is to sond
Jack Best, tho veteran tralnor, on n
visit to his old homo In England dur
ing the summer vucation. Tho move
ment wns started by a studont UBklng
in tho "Why" codumn of tho Lincoln
Nows, "Why doosn't somo university
organization start a fund to sond Jack
BeBt to England for tho summor vaca
tion?" "The ltom attracted tho atten
tion of somo of tho nthlotlc students,
who hnvo known and. appreciated
Jack's work', and tho Idea haB beon
worked up and It Is practlcnlly certain
that Jack will bo sont.
Jack BoBt has been with tho univer
sity twenty-ono years. Ho has scon
the institution grow from four build
ings to Its present size. Ho becamo
tralnor of tho football team when tho
game came into tho unlvorslty about
Bovoutecn years ago, and has been
training N men ever since. Ho has
also had charge of tho track and bnso
ball men nnd has beon ono of tho
greatest factors In the succoss of our
teams. Jack waB formerly a profes
sional boxer and was always woll up
on training "dopo." His position when
ho camo to Nebraska was night watch
andbo was also In chargo of tho gym
nnslum; .. Tho training work now tnkes
all of his timo.
Home n Lpndoji. j
Jack has not seen his old homo In
England for twonty-threo years, ,HIb,
home was In London. Ho has sovoral
brothers and sisters there and. other
relatives In various parts of England.
Ho had almost given up hope of over
seeing thorn again and Bays ho can
hardly bollove his good fortune will
hold out Io-bco tho purso made up;
Ho is now past 70 years of ago.
' Tho amount needed wJllbo some
where between $300 and $400, This
ought to cover all expenses and lu
the trip off In first clnss stylo, Those
Reading the movement think It ought
to bo done by tho university studonts
contributing, smajl sums. If enough Is
not raised in this manner tho adumnl
wil) be asked to help. 0f courso all
who have taken work that brought
them Into the-gymnasium will, be
ready and glnd to holp. Jack certainly
dosorves this expression of apprecia
tion for his long nnd faithwul labors
for-the university. It Is natural fore
man in old ago to long for a sight of
his childhood homo beforo he dies, and
a sight of tho relatives and friends ho
has not seen for many a long year.
