NO 5UR0E0M ON THE GROUNDS Rugby Might Be Quite Dangerous American Oarno Should Be Pre served if It can Be Made Reasonably Safe. Inasmuch as there has appeared In tho public press an account of reputed privato conversation of tho chancellor in regard to tho attitudo of tho Ne braska delegates towards tho Kansas City football conference, Mr. Avery has given to tho NebraBkan tho follow ing as an authorized statomont con cerning his attitudo in regard to tho matter: "Somo timo since I wroto to Chan cellor Strong asking him if ho regard ed the KanBaB City conference as nec essary inasmuch as it seemed from tho press reports that tho national football conference committeo was try ing to make a revision in good faith looking towards the elimination of the principal elements of danger. His re ply Indicated that ho thought than thn conference wpuld still bo a very im portant ono, and that bo hoped aB many of tho Nebraska regents would attend as possible. Should Be Revised. "I havo taken all along the ground that tho rules of tho gamo Bhould be bo revised that injuries to tho players aro not to bo anticipated. It should not bo considered necessary to havo a surgeon on tho grounds. Tho game should be no moro dangerous, and the accidents to tho players should not bo greater in proportion to those taking part, than In baseball and other virile sports. I am, however, Inclined to boliovo that tho national conference committeo should be accepted as work ing in gbod faith, and that tho new rules should bo given a fair trial. Might Be Dangerous. "I am Informed by experts that con sidering tho vigorous way In which' sports nro conducted in America, the Rugby gamo might bo quilo as dan gorouB as tho. gamo Is likely to be under the now rules. Further, I be lieve that tho American gamo should bo -preserved if It can bo mado rea sonably safe. "While holding tho above opinions, I shall endeavor to bo open-minded at tho Kansas- City meotlng. I would particularly, disclaim tho thought of presuming to state in advance how our regents will vote on any question that may arise. I may add, however, that If any decisive voto is taken tho Ne braska delegates may bo expected to show that unanimity of action and ex cellent team work which tho members of the present board of regents al ways show in deciding matters of In terest to tho university." ADDITION TO FACULTY. Professor Browned Well t Known to Students of 8tate. Tho University of Nebraska appears to be very fortunate In being able to secure Professor Brownoll of Peru as a member of its faculty In tho toach- ers' college. His work Is tho theory arid practice of teaching tho physical sciences and ho is also made super visor of the training school, where his duties will be to assist in, tho super vision of the .practice work in the teachers' college high school. Prof. Herbert Brown ell received his academic work' at Colgate, his normal, work at tho Oswego (N. Y.) state nor maf, from which ho graduated and later took post graduate work. He holds his degree, of B. Sc. from Hamll- ton college (N. Y.). Asldo from this more, formal training; ho camo to-Nc" braska in 1803 to tako his present po sition as head of tho department of physical sciences, with ten yoars of publio school oxperlonco back of him. Along with tho building of his depart ment up to a position such that it commands not only the-respoct but tho admiration of his contemporaries; ho has givon to tho high school and grades manuals in physics, chomlB try, naturo study .apd astronomy which aro being adopted not only in Nebraska, but in neighboring states. Whllo Professor Brownoll is known to all normal students as ono of tho best instructors in tho state normal school (many havo said In tho state), ho is remembered by thorn as moro than an Instructor, but rather as a teacher in all tho breadth of meaning in that word. GRADED ON MONEY 8PENT. University, of Missouri Puts on An other New Stunt. How would you liko to bo graded on tho way you spend your raonoy? That is what is happoning to tho students who tako tho first courso In homo co nomlcs. At tho end of ovory month each girl in tho class hands In nn ac count of her expenditures for that month. Ono of tho requirements for tho next account Is that ovorythlng mustJ be listed under olther necessary or un necessary expenditures. Last month tho glrlB wero not bo restricted, and some, of tho lists wore headed: Chafing-dish oxpenso, board, pleasure church and Y. W. C. A., and Irregular eating. . Ono girl's pleasure column included' nickleodcon expenses, what sho spent for baskotball tickets, for music and for having a guest at dinner. Sho had another column headed "irregu lar eating." Tho students aro allowed to havo what they call a D. T. W. sec tion In their account "D. T. W." stands for "don't tell what,"-and this section contains tho amount spent, but does not toll for what it was spent. Somo of tho girls who do not begin to roako their accounts until tho day before they must bo handed In find this section convenient. Othor students do not use it at all. Ono girl, whoso expenditures ranged from tho price of a cako of soap to her dues for a danco, had overy oxpenso dated and accounted for. When tho different accounts aro handed in the motives for tho expendi tures aro discussed In class. Almost an hour was spent ono day' In dis cussing motives for buying things to oat. .
