    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.

Employment Question
Complicated by the
Dearth of Positions
Y. 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. The equip
ment belongs to the University and the money of the
Cafeteria is handled by the Treasurer of the Student
Activities'
