WBbNKSDAY, MARCH 2. 1910.
A column devoted to notOs from tho
' college of ngrlculturo will he published
dally In tho Dally Nobrasknn. Tho
collogo 1h In reality a part of tho unl
vorslty but during tho, past few yearB
has not boon represented In tho nowB
column. Ovor Boventy-llvoBubscrlbers
havo been secured at the stato agri
cultural school and the pnpor will bo

' Another comot has boon discovered.
At InBt comot discovering has becomo
one of tho logltlmato professions.
Somo morning wo oxpeel to hear It
announced that tho University of Mis
souri has Instituted u couihc In comet
discovering aimed to fit students to
accept paying positions In thirty days.
A list of tWont
which havo boon found In tho library
has boon poBtod. Students recogniz
ing tholr namo on tho list may re
cover tholr property by calling at tho
library. It is barely possible that
somo day tho library authorities will
unearth an unclaimed student In tho
stack who haB forgotten wboro ho he
Tongs or what his namo Is. A series
of red woolen strings tied around the
finger of tho "absent-mind" ns ho
enters tho library, Indicating tho num
ber of books ho has with him, might
.nid In solving tho difficulty.
It seems that thoro nro other things
in life besldos tho courses offered in n
'university. Tho studont often falls
Into tho habit of remembering only
tho streets wlilch mnko up his dally
rpatl to and from tho university, and
'Of forgetting, too much, tho big world
outside. Of courso wo do not know
this from oxpprlonco, but so tho grad
uates tell us. s-
An-exchange from tho Scarlet and
JBIack states tho growing necessity for
'a general knowledge of current ovonts
. "How many of tho men and women
fof tho college could Intelligently listen
Uo a discussion of somo of tho pressing
tproblems that confront tho Amorican
'people at this time, to sny nothing
of an Intelligent discussion them
selves? Probably thoro has never
"'been a tlmo In tho "fast twenty-five
'years when thoro was moro of Inter
est and of moro vital impoi'tanco to
'the future citizens than there Is at
.present, What do tho men and tho
.women of tho collogo know about tb?
currency and banking questions, the
problems of law enforcement and the
shifting of governmental forces such
as are taking place today? Ability to
at;least understand these Issues wlfl

-ONE LA8T WORD."
Editorial djscusslons havo appeared
at Cornell, Yale, Pennsylvania, Brown
and Williams dwelling with thp ques
tion of final examinations. This shows
that it Is a question not confined to
Princeton nlono. Many varlotio of
opinion havo been expressed, but tho
argumont running through all of theso
discussions is not that examinations
should bo abolished, but that tho
abusos of them should be corrected.
The nbnBO of examinations hero Is
confined to a fow of thoso lecture
courses In which tho lecturer has no
way. of knowing how much work tho
men undor him nro doing during the
torm. In these courses tho examina
tion 1b practically tho only essential
to passing tho courso; tho adverso
opinion of a precoptor may keep a
man from passing, but a good term
record Boldom If ovor pulls him
through. ThlB Ib obviously unfair.
Mombors of tho faculty know which
thcBO courses are as woll as students
Under the preceptorial systom It In
possible to keep an accurate record of
what a man has done In almost every
ono of thoso courses and things should
bo ho arranged that credit will be
given In the final reckoning for work
done during the term. How this may
best bo brought about may bo easily
determined by thoso who glvo tho
courses; It has been solved already In
somo courseB and can be In all.
It Is but common Jusllco that a man
should got credit for what ho does.
Study for its own sako Is all woll
enough, but It Is of little vnlue to nny
ono who Is working for a dogreo un
loss somo recognition is made for it.
Tho precoptorlul system makes men
work harder for themselves thnn the
former mothod of education In voguo
here. Is It to bo reduced to tho func
tion of a moro goad which men will
try to nvold becauso they feel that
they are not getting credit for what
they aro doing? Or Is credit to be
given and tho systom kept on tho
lovel which It was Intended to assume,
namely, that of encouraging real of
fort on tho part of students? Wo
hope tho propor authorities in tho fac
ulty will answer this last question In
tho affirmative. Ex.

CONSIDERS FOOTBALL A BURDEN
Letter from One College President 'to
Another Criticizes FoolbalLRe
form of Five Years Ago
That the reformers of tho present
game of football will .attempt to
"chango tho gamo In its entlroty is evi
denced by a recent letter, sent broad
cast to tho schools and universities
of tho country.
The author of tho letter Is Dr. Jor
'dan, "president of Loland Stanford
University, ana it was written to
President Charles Van Hlso of tho
University of Wisconsin. la this let
ter Dr. Pordan Considers football as
being tho heaviest burden borno by
tho Institutions of higher education in
Amorica, and ho declares himself ns
being heartily In favor of abolishing
tho professional coach and nlso de
clares that reform Is of no value un
less "manhandling" Ib abolished.
Tho letter Is ns follows;
"Doar President Van Hlso: At the
present Juncture the- university presi
dents of the United States have tho
opiKirtunlty to throw off onco for all
tho heaviest burden yet borno by high
er education In America. This can bo
dono If oach institution will decide
thnt no form of football which nllows
or legalizes 'Interference' or 'offside
play' shall be played on its campus.
From 'interference' results 'mass
play,' 'downs,' hnrd tackling and the
vnrloiiB forms of 'manhandling,' as
woll as the dominance of tho profes
sional coach. The other details of tho
ganio, by which Rugby dlffors Trom Ith
Amorlcnn pervert, tho scrum, tlio
throwing In, etc., are of little conse
quence But no reform of any vnlue
is possible until 'manhnndllng' is
eliminated and tho farco of 'football
reform' of flvo years ago should not
bo repeated. Very truly yours,
"DAVID STARR JORDAN."

The Nebraskan goes daily
to 100 Nebraska high schools
and to all the large universi
ties and colleges of the coun
try. In these schools it exerts
a considerable influence in
forming the opinion that is
held concerning our institu
tion. If you want that opin
ion to be good you should do
your part to make the Neb
raskan truly representative
of our University.
