lins, who is charged with professional
ism by a number of university profes
sors and alumni.
Tho committee mooting tonight will
not bo an open session. Tho commit
toe itself has no power to act, but
will report Its 'findings to tho athletlo
board at a later meeting should a re
port seem necessary.
Collins Is Ready.
Sidney Collins stands ready and
willing to assist in preserving tho
"good name of Nebraska. Ho stated
last night, when called over tho tele
phone by a Nebraskan roportor, that
ho would be glad to go before tho,
proper committee at any time, espe
cially since ho felt that athletics In
tho university aro deserving of tho
best confidence of both faculty and
Collins will not bo asked to appear
before the committee tonight, no evi-,
dence having as yet been filed against
- him. Ho has been certified as to his
qualification to take part In tho Mis
souri Valley meet next Saturday. Tho
meeting tonight will not bo an Inves
tigation of charges, but simply an en
deavor on the part of tho committee
to see whether or not tho evidence
. XocthCQiTllnB' Is sufficient to warrant
cancelling Collins entries in The "Sat
Not an Investigation.
It Is in no manner an investigation
of tho affair, but Clyde "Elliott, sport
ing editor of tho Omaha Dally Bee,
has been Invited" by the committee to
present the chargo he has been stat
ing he would . mako against Collins
Although no written charges had been
made up to last night, some of tho
newspapers havo contained wild
stories stating that a charge had been
preferred. This Is entirely a mistake.
A Nebraskan reporter Interviewed Dr.
H. K. Wolfe, chairman of the eligibil
ity committee, last night and ho
stated that none had as yet been filed,
.tout, that Mr. JBlliott had been invited
to bring in his evidence at the meet
Although, no statements havo offi
cially been made, it is the general
opinion of students that two univer
sity professors and as many alumni
of the university are giving thoir at
tention to the prosecution of the Col
lins ease, but they do not think that
all will appear before tho committee.

days, tho details are much moro com

ably created moro discussion than
everything else together. In tho
opinion of tho entire student body,
the camp location has shifted to near

Professor Barbour mado an ardent
plea for civic Improvement In his ad
(iresB on Pork Systoms at convocation
yesterday moiling. Ho said that
every citizen had a duty to porform
in making his home and city bettor
places to llvo In. Improvements
should not bo made for self alone, but
for tho benefit of tho community.
A very Interesting sot of steroop
ticon slides pictured somo of tho
places that needed improvements and
somo of thoso which would servo as
examples of what can bo dono. Somo
places In Lincoln wore shown that
are a dlsgraco to, the city. Tho out
skirts of tho city Is an unsightly
dumping ground. Walks and alloys
aro, In places, In very bad condition.
Professor Barbour said that one of tho
main reasons Americans spent so
much money In foreign countries was
to escape tho dirt and ugliness of
somo of tho American cities. Tho
peoplo of Lincoln are always running
to St. Paul and Minneapolis or pthor
cltlos where thero are cool and beau
tiful places. .A , ,

A fine example of parking is given
by tho city of Boston. No child In
tho city lives moro than half a mllo

many playgrounds and athlotlc fields
for peoplo to enjoy. On Manhattan
Island $6,000,000 has just been spent
for nlno acres which will bo parked.

Chicago Is spending $30,000,000 in
parks. Ono is to bo twehty-flvo miles

parks all over the city. The streets
here are tho best arranged of any
American city. Ono way they run
parallel and tho others run diagonal
to these. This gives a continual now
vista as one reaches a now intersec

In London they have tho polygonal
system of parking. No street comes
In" contact with the parks and they
aro entirely protected. In Moscow tho
belt arrangement is used. Tho parks
run in concentric rings throughout
tho city. .Each is very effective." In
one park In London when. Professor
Bar'bour was there, 5,000 children
