The recent article on the coat of
dancen which received bo much scath
ing criticism did perhaps picture tho
situation In a rather onesided light.
Its facts were subalantlally true, but
unfortunately it ltffd" particular em
phasis upo" the expensive aspect of
the functions, to the exclusion of
Its comparison of the entire cost of
the dancing season with that of Wis
consin's premier Prom is, on the face
of It, an Illogical one. The mention of
a lump sum of $:,000 is appalling, but
it must be remembered that this rep
resents tho total expenditure of oer
three hundred men, made eery other
year. Favors at u formal party are
the exception, not the rule, so that
the average cost of such a party may
safely be estimated at from $;!H) to
Furthermore, the fact must bo re
membered that the recent abolition of
cabs has materially cut down the ex
pense; Biich economy is practiced in
very few of the larger universities,
and in several cases the example set
by Nebraska has been followed This
matter of comparative expense leads
to another consideration, which has
not been touched upon namely, that
the students of Nebraska spend far
less In drinking and gambling than do
those of other schools. This is not a
mere assumpt ion, but a statement ot
fact, gained from the information of
those who have studied conditions in
representative colleges and uuiversi
ties. Nebraska Is noted for the stress
which it lays on coed affairs; its
spending money goes to society rather
than to fast living.
It must also be remembered that
the money spent on formal parties is
not over and above tho usual "pleas
uro fund," but is Baved out of that
fund. Tho average student receives a
stipulated allowance out of which
must comu his spending money; it
really is of small import whether he
Bpends this amount all at one time or
In small installments. Tho fact that
tho majority of fraternity men receive
for thoir respective year's allowance
from $4f0 to $f)50 shows that they can
not have an enormous amount to
spend for such luxuries as formal parties.
That the interest of the University
girls Is being aroused nlong athletic
lines Is shown not only by tho large
number who took part In tho gym
nastic exhibition, but also by the
preparations now being made for a
field meet to be hold In tho latter part
of May. There will bo competition
in various events for pennants, cupB,
medals, etc. The program will be
announced later. Practice will be
hold dally at one o'clock, excepting
on Wednesday, when the practice will
be at ten. loiter, it will be held out
of doors. All glrlB interested are In

This is the first outdoor meet ever
held by the gym classes as a whole,
the physical education girls only hold
ing the meet last year. At last the
girls are to have a more active part
in athletics than sitting In the girbV
