THE DAILY NEBEASKAN I T 4fc HOW OXFORD PLAY8 (Continued from Page 1) "Tho time from 2 to 4:30 p. m. is devoted to outdoor exercise; it is con sidered very had form to do any work at this time, and only those who havo lived a while in England can realize how important matters of form are. If one has nothing elBe to do he takes a lonu: walk. "Those college athletics are taken very !-'! iously. You see, a man loves his college as his alma mater; to him his (ollene stands for Oxford, and it is m:Iv as a mnnher of a college that ho i . an Olord man. More old grads ( rnre hack lor eight weeks when the colh ge eights struggle for place on the rier than for commencement. The victory on the river or in the finals in foot hull, truck, or cricket is celehrated by a big dinner and in most colleges by a bonfire. "Yet the college system as it stands alone is incomplete. To provide for the average student it is indeed ideal, but it makes insulheieiit provision for the unusual athlete. This place is filled by the university teams. Not only are there teams for each of tho sports above mentioned, but varsity teams in fencing and lacrosse are maintained, and a large number of men are busy training for these. It may be or interest to state that it was in lacrosse that I found my outlet. I played in every game for the varsity scrubs (about sixteen games), who won the South of England championship in the junior division, and I expect to be playing lacrosse again this oar. "There is no need, I think, to point out the advantages of such a system as 1 have outlined above where ath letics really are for the many, even for the great majority of the men in the university, instead of for a select lew as is the case nearly everywhere in America. The athletic marvel still finds a suitable vent for his powers, while the average man is not neg lected. "Naturally, such a system is rather expensive. In my college athletic dues are $25 initiation and $30 a year, but fully half of this goes to the support of rowing. With proper management $25 a year should cover ordinary ex penses perhaps less. "Unfortunately, I see little hope that anything resembling this can be insti tuted here in the near future. We have not the passionate love of out door life that is Inate in every Eng lishman. And the Oxford system pre supposes a number of fairly large groups with a considerable of that form of self-consciousness which we call school spirit. Such groups do not exist in any American university, as far as I know. "That we will be driven to some thing like the collegiate ssystem is my firm opinion. Our great universities are fast becoming, where they are not already, unwieldy, and some educators are agitating for a return to the old system of little colleges such as Wil liams. The educational universities are, however, too groat to be aban doned if any other means can be sug gested. I hope in a future article to show how tho collegiate-university sys tem meets the social and instructional problems with jnst the same nice ad justment that we .r' in the athletic Hold."

FOURTEEN MAN TEAM (Continued from page 1) rowed down It Ih expected that tho forwards will attain a higher perfec tion In hooking tho ball from the serum and In dribbling. "Jimmie" Schaeffer Is much in favor of the proposed change. "I think that tho substitution of the seven-man scrum will work wonders In the de velopment of the game of rugby," he said yesterday. "It will serve to speed up the play to an extent that had not yet been seen on the local fields. Every forward will have to have the speed and agility of a back. A much cleaner game is sure to result, as the pre dominant feature of the play should be the passing and running of tho backs, instead of the present close play of the forwards. It will work a radical change in the building of the present varsity team if this change goes through, as every veteran will have to be taught to play his position In a dif ferent manner. It will give tho inox perienced player a better chance against the veterans, since all will have to learn anew." It is expected that the club teams around the Hay will conform to the proposed rule if it is finally adopted. In tomorrow's varsity game will the now plan he given its first tryout. The varsity and the Barbarian team will ouch play with fourtoon-mon teams. Money! Money! Money! Cry of Canvassers Heard Over Campus The innocent freshman who suc ceeds in getting past the line of money-mad kings of finance surround ing the Registrar's oflice with so much as a solitary dollar may consider him or herself exceedingly fortunate. Father Dales, with his new skullcap fairly outs up the long green. Hordes of solicitors and canvassers throw a net about the neophyte that will not lift unless greased by tho sight of real .money. From every possible vantage ground are hurled offers of Rag and Awgwan subscriptions, and the Blue Print, Y. W. C. A. and Girls' Club (111 up the vacancies with requests for money, money, money. The freshman, having been warned repeatedly to watch out for confidence games, grafters, and sich like, are rather wary, and shell out with due discretion. Wisdom comes with age, luckily, and with a bunch of spielers that would shame a county fair, the frosh and his money are soon parted. Ted Marrlner Cleaner, Hatter, and Repairer.

M. C. A. Employment Bureau Finds Competitor In the Flold Many Seeking Jobs. E. ('. Sleeth, the now head of the IT ii I Y. M. ( A. emplo.ment bureau, reports a dearth of jobs and hordes of freshmen. The long summer sea son has tightened things gonerallv about Lincoln and there is a marked scarcity of puying positions open to those wanting only part time. The University, us usual, offers em ployment to a number of students, and the boarding and rooming houses also offer small jobs to the student do pendent upon his own resources. In creased patronage of Lincoln business firms causes them to employ students In many instances. Mr. Sleeth is at 'present engaged in lining up those prospects and hopes to havo plenty of work-4n-ft-ho4-444 All students wishing employment lire urged to register in the Temple as soon as possible and work will be pro vided accordingly. Competition Arises. A student employment bureau, said to he controlled and owned by several prominent seniors, is being quietly ad-j vertised among the incoming students.) Sure jobs are offered for the small sum of $F. Since one part of the transaction, the payment of the five dollar bill, is rather painful, the free bureau maintained by the Y. M. ('. A. is not likely to suffer seriously from competition. THE CAFETERIA OF THE UNIVERSITY Y. M. C. A. This is a strictly University Cafeteria. There is no bid made for the business of any other boarders. The students may be sure of having a strictly University crowd when they eat at the Cafeteria. It was established by the Board of Regents of the University for the men and women students of the University, not barring of course the members of the faculty and the other men and women employed about the Univereity.
