A DANGEROUS DEMONSTRATION.
Tho action of tho rootora at laBt
Saturdays baBkotball gamo wus, to
Bay tho loaBt, far from commondablo.
Tho moro fact that Roforoo Teuton
did not Intorprot tho Missouri Valley
confercnco ruloB uccordlng to tho
oplnlotiB of tho multltudo, roBulted In
a carnival of hissing and taunts.
For a unlvorBlty of tho standing of
Nebraska such a demonstration is
nothing Bhort of a catastrophe; It Is
detrimental to tho Intor-colloglato
standing of any school, but to that
of .i unlvorsity which holdB two Mis
souri Valloy championships, which
haB in tho paBt few years OBtabllshed
an onvlablo record for flno spirit, and
clean athletics, It 1b disgraceful. Such
actions as thoBO havo ruined the
reputatlonB of moro than ono of our
universities; jn fact, soveral of tho
Valley 'qoh.oolB are still at a groat
disadvantage owing to Borne provlouB
"unBportBinanllko" demonstration.
The point at Ibbuo does not concern
tho Question as to whother tho ref
eree was abBolutoly right or wrong,
but rather tho impression that Is
bound to go out to other schools, that
tho treatment received at our hands
la not of tho host. Possibly Referee
Touton waB wrong In Bovoral of his
decisions? but tho fact remains that
ho was engaged by tho conference
authorities, and thaj. ho deserved Just
troatment. Not only will an official
thuB received carry away with him a
poor opinion of -conditions hare, but
also tho vlBltlng team, whoso influ
ence In their Alma Mater la bound
to bo wldo, and, therofore, dangerous
Ono such exhibition of ruffled
splrltt may haye no sorloiiB coiibo
quencoB, bul a repetition would bo apt
to lower tho enviable reputation which
Nebraska now holdB.
A WINTER 8PORT.
Tho "Rag" ofllco 1b being flooded
not only with nows, subscription pay
ments, and complaints, but also real
water Tho roportor who Ib obliged
to mako several visits dally to the
office takes his life in his hands as
many times.
A thick coating of Ice on tho two
lower BtepB, combined' with a down
pour of cold water from tho oavoB,
which rivals tho rush of Niagara
Fallu, makeB tho ontranco to our cozy
abode exhilarating, If not dangorouB.
Tho cnoulng dampening of spirits to
tbo unfortunato Individual who "Blips
in" t.pojj up can only bo dispelled by
tho rush of hot air which mrfkos tho
interior bo pleasant..
BILL WRITES HOME.
Dear Dad-
Your laBt oplstlo sure did make mo
alt up. I'd like to know what they
havo been handing you. Of courBO
my fees of registration weok wero
only olght dollars, but that fifty went
in a good causo. Enclosed Is my ac
count. You can bco by it how high
living exponBOB are here. I waB stung
seven dollars for a woek's board Sat
urday; but a fellow haB to eat. Had
I thros teeth filled, and think I'll havo
to hnvo tho reBt filled soon. Then I
had my lungs examined last week;
think there must bo Bomothlng wrong
with them, as the air Is very bad
hore; tll mother not to worry,
though I'll probably pull through all
right. Renewed my subscription to
tho "Rag," and of course that took
a lot, but a fellow has to show school
spirit some way. Joined the Y. M. C.
A., aa you told mo to, but I haven't
paid all the dueB yet. Awfully ox
pensive, but still I think It doos a
fellow a lot of good to belong.
And, say, some of tho profeBBorB
havo asked me to Join tho Latin club,
and tho DeutBcho Voroin, but I said
"no" I thought It was too expensive,
but J will yet If you think I'd better.
They're awfully Instructive, these
clubs, and you can havo a good time
on the side; seems to me that every
follow ought to improve his oppor
tunities while he's hero
Toll mother I'm sorry she's wor
ried about my cold, but I'm getting
beter. Think I ought to buy some
rubbers or overshoeB, or something.
The reason that I haven't been writ
ing homo so often lately Is that I
didn't havo any Btampa.
Ab you said, Dad, times have
changed since you were hero. Friday
nights you took mother to tho Pal
ladlan, and had a good time, and
that's all thoro was to it, but noth
ing's doing now but hops and formals,
and they've begun using cabs again,
dom it. And, Dad, I think It would
bo moro economical In tho long run
If I had a dresB suit; believe I could
get one cheap now, aa some of tho
follows want to Bell.
Ouoss I'd hotter stop now, as It's
nine o'clock, and I like to got to bed
early. I think every follow ought to
lpok out for his health. Toll mother
that I'll write soon and that I'm get
ting along all right
Ab ever, yours.
BILL.
P. S The museum burned down
laBt Wednesday morning and some of
ub fellows thought It would bo a good
plan to raise a subscription for it.
Just send mo a tenner thlB time. Dad,
if you can't spare any moro Bill.
