THIS BIT OF WESLEYAN SARCASM?
An editorial under tho head of
"Our Record" appeared In tho last,
Issue of The Wosleyan. It Ib im
possible for ub to answer it. Por
haps some member of tho student
body may be able to' do so.
"The following appeared in tho
editorial column of tho Daily Ne
braskan, the student publication of
the University of Nebraska:
" 'The Dally NebrnBlran Is to be
decreased in size. The increased
cost of composition and printing,
added to the luck of support in tho
.way of subscriptions, has caused
tlio change. The student body ns
a whole docs not subscribe to the
Daily Nebraska!!. At the present
time there are 071 paid subscribers
to the Dally NebraBkan list; of this
number 2't are high schools over
the st ate and 135 are on the mail
ing lists to alumni and former stu
dents at the university. Tho, 411
subscribers left on tho list are tho
students and faculty members on
" 'Does tills look fair that a paper-
should have' actual circulation
Of 411 on tho university campus
when there are 2,440 students reg
istered in the state university, ac
cording to tho actual" figures re
cently published? Ib it fair?
Where lies the blame?'
"The editorial goes on with a
tirade against the 'spongers' and
tightwads, who are responsible for
this deplorable state of affairs. And
right it should. A student body
Who have lack . sufficient spirit to
support their own publication de
serves very Uttlo but the severest
condemnation and roproacb.

record of her student publications.
At present the management Is
printing GOO copies. Of theso 111)
go to high schools over tho state,
52 are on mailing lists to alumni
and former students of the univer
sity. The 405 remaining represent
the subscriptions of tho student
body and faculty. In a special cam
paign this week we expect to got
75 or more new subscribers. With
what other subscriptions we will
get next semester the list will
reach 700 at least. Now what do
you think or that? Doesn't this
showing indlcnte .something of the
college spirit that r.revallB here?
"Tho proportion goes something
like this. 2440:700: :G71:.')7(J. With
70() enthusiastic students we are

The Intercolleglato debating team
which will represent Nobrnska In her
contest versus Illinois at Urbana, .
scheduled for Friday evening, will,
loavo tills nfternoon at 4:30 o'clock.
Professor .M. .M. Fogg who has direct
ed and coached both teams In their
preliminary preparation, will accom
pany tho Invading team In their for
ensic conquest of Illinois. ProfoBBor
Caldwell, head of the department of
American history, will direct tho
movements and arrangements of tho
Nebrnska-Wlsconsin dobnto at Lin
coln, Friday evening. Thus Nobraska
is to be engaged In a dual debate, a
condition which will affect every
school In tho Central Debating league.
Both teams have put Jn practically
their last "licks" of preparation. At
the tlmo of tho selection of tho two
teams from tho squad, a condition or
high tension was established among
rr-deDnters-which-haH provnlred' lib
to the present momont, aiid which
must receive no little relaxation on
Friday night of this week. Whatever
the fate of the two teams, as decroed
by the respective Jurlos, It Ib gener
ally acknowledged by those who have
observed their operations that from
the standpoint or "grinding" out mate
rial and making extensive researches,
In case of nominal falIuro,no one can
attribute sumo either to tho debaters'
themselves or to tlict management in
general. y- , i ..
Tickets Going' Fast.X ; cV
Tickets ,for tho debate aro going
fast. Nearly all the reservations that
were expected by tho business man
ager have boon requested and made!
Tho last largo ono to appear camo
from tho university farm, reserving
iirty seats. Lincoln high school has
not entered a request as yet, but a
Tairly sized reservation Is expected
from that source.
Quite a number or telegrams lmvo
been received by the debate manage- .
inent from iiiemlinrH of HinL.nJnrnnlwhn,.
at one time had an occasion to repre
sent Nebraska In debate. These have
all been of a "success to you" char
acter and are greatly appreciated by '
tho debaters at tho beginning of their
encounters. As expressed by one of
tho contestants, "If wojyo got the
student body spirit back' of us, we'll
do tho rest. We'ro In It to do our
be"sri.r It results in a cast of Amerl:
cana Insanltla for a climax."
Where Is the Spirit?
Chairman Hahne, when questioned
concerning tho financial outcome of
the local debate, made nthe following
statement: "One of the reasons why
debating Is not supported Tjy the stu-.
dent body-at tlio university is because -,
ilicy think JtJs a 'dry' affair. Most or
these criticisms, howqver, come from
students who have never ye,t wit-,
neBsed an 'intercollegiate debate. The
salvation of tho financial side of this
debate ,1 uCpresoht totally, dependent' t
uppnr.e'nj'r,NjbjttBka spirit. The out
come "of w tho debates "themselves Is'
largely dependent on this snme spirit.
We, donX. necessarily mean that there

orous rally to save the day, but a
