The management of the NebrasK;
Cotillion now know that they are
one hundred and forty-threo dollar
behind. Tho Junior play Is alBO ver
heavily In debt. Results are s!ow!j
coming In aa to tho real status of
our last Intercollegiate debate, and
those in charge estimate that this
event went behind as much as sevent)

that the dance held after the debate
was much too crowded for enjoyment

burden themselves with the duty of
representing an unincorporated con
stltuency, like a class, in matters in
volvlng the expenditure of money to
stand good for any losses Involving
the expenditure of money. Except
when these activities repeatedly fail,
and when one activity . goes too far
behind, committees In charge of these
activities have usually succeeded in
getting the price of their extravagance
paid sometime in the future
But the situation is now extreme
Students now owe bills that will
never be paid, either by the persons
responsible for creating the debt or
by the students who authorized the
oxpgndlttire. Three out of four ac
tivities that cost money regularly i
fail. The total amount of doubtful
organization credit used up by per-
sons who can't pay and who are ob
liged to run the gauntlet of another
dance or minstrel show to pay out is
near! fhe hundred dollars It would
seem that the situation has gotten en
tirely beyond the power of Individ
uals to relieve it, and that the Unl-'
versit students as a body must take
hold of the matter and pay off these
debts. An assessment on the mem-1
hers or all classes in debt, a very small
assessment at that, would straighten
out our present financial difficulties,
appease the wrath of our creditors,
and clear the way for the inaugura
tion of a more economical policy of
amusing ourselves in the future
After a twenty live or fifty cent as
.sessment has been levied on every
ineniberof a class to pay off all that
class's debts, everyone will then have
concretely brought home to him the
neeessit for keeping his organiza
tion within its income Just now no
body feels obliged to curtail expen
di tire of extravagance because he
knows that someone else will eventu
ally foot the bill. Nothing but n sin
g'e tax on everybody alike, or an ab
solute abolition of all surplus activi
ties will keep us from falling Into
financial depravity. '
Personally, we believe It Is easier
to get along without a cotillion, with
out a play and without an exponsivo
basketball game than It Is to assess
everybody As a matter of fact most
of the University gets along without
them now Only about ono hundred
and fifty out of four thousand students
paid their way into the Nebraska Co-
