THROWING UP THE SPONGE.
Sovoro criticism 1b all that wo can
have for tho sophomoro basketball
toam for Its conduct In tho sonlor-
sophomoro gamo Thursday night. For
gross that aro now being hold In Lin
coln. Somo havo tho Idea that It Is a
dry affair and thoro 1b nothing to In
terest tho student. This is a gravo
miBtako. Tho subjects that como up
for discussion concern questions that
aro of vital Intorost to tho peoplo of
tho stato and nation. Thcso same
probloms must bo met by university
men and women ovory day If they in
tend to tako an active part In politi
cal and industrial affairs.
Tho conservation move, as It may
bo termed, 1b a now one. Tho last
fow years It has been agitated in ono
way and anothor until now It Is com
manding tho attention of tho whole
country. Tho groat problems which
concorn tho futuro wolfaro of tho raco
must bo met now. Wo can not go on
wastlngi our national and stato re
sources without Jeopardizing tho
prosperity of years to como. Tho
loading thlnkors of tho world havo
boon theorizing along certain lines for
somo tlmo and have succeeded only
in so far that thoy havo aroused) the
Tho largo universities aro taking an
Intorost In tho attempts to reach a so
lution of tho tptroblom. Courses are
devoted to tho study of tho same
questions under tho guiso of differ
ent namcB. Nebraska Btudents havo
had an opportunity to hear tho mat-
tor discussed from a practical view
point and should havo profited much.
Did you seo tho Cornhuskors play
basketball last night? If you did not
you Buro missed something and must
not foil to seo the gamo this ovening.
