called to itfydu mada all amends fpos
siblq; if, evdniaftor thistho offended
person still cherished enmity towards
you well, (ho Nobraska'n reprinted on
its front pago an article -from tho
Western Intercollegiate Magazine of
Madison, Wisconsin. The article de
scribed Yost's methods of coaching at
Kansas, arid was headed; "How Kari

sas .Boat Nebraska' in 1899 by a Score
ot; 39, to.l0.Bya printer's error tho
credit duo tho Western Intercollegiate
Magazine was omitted from tho .last
lino of tho article.. When tho man
agement of tho Madison paper called
tho-attohtlan of the Nobraska'n man
agement, to tho omission, a letter of
explanation and apology for tho mis-
hap- 'was -promptly- forwardodr-and- It
was assumed that tho incident was
ended. Instead, tho latest'numbor of
the Madison magazine appears with a
fuU-pago halftone reproduction of tho
offending pago of .tho.-Npbraskan, and
an article4 by :Itav athletic editor on
"Problems Confronting Collego Dal
lies," in which tho Nebraskan is ac
cused of having been "grossly guilty"
of i "plagiarism."
One can, not help wondering whether
after all tho Intercollegiate Magazine
has reached tho plane of tho Atlantic
Monthly, or Harper's Weekly when it
devotes so much attention to an of
fense that had boori, as it was sup
posed,; satisfactorily explained. Is tho
action of "the small shoot" which
"frequently Alls ono-thlrd of tho front
pago' with such special featured
articles" of so much importance as to
demand a full half-tone reproduction
of the Nebraskan' in our worthy north
ern contemporary? Does it not seem
to (indicate that tho Western Intercol
legiate Magazine has at least a"moto"
in lite eye, if" not iv"boam" Ih fact
it.soomB to the Nebraskan that dignity
would" have been more completely
manifested- by a very different atti
tude on tho part of the Wisconsin
magazine, and that the claim, implied
in its title, would havo boon more
nearly realized had it" made less of
the supposed' affront, - ...

As everyono hero knows, the man
agement of the, Nebraskan changes
each semester; so tho ,offensoi"oc-,
curring last January, was committed
,bjt the flrsty semester management.
But the first semester management,
as everyono here also believes, was
one whose honesty was beyotfd ques

ary should know, not in the habit of
