THE TOWLE CASE
M it x well Towlo, the man chosen to
load Nebraska's 1914 football team,
has boon hold ineligible to play Mis
souri Valley lootball This ruling is
final .lust what is the justice in tho
Nebraska has been her own accuser.
Charges of incligiblllt came from our
midst. Keeral of our own faculty
stood niOM'OUtor.s of the case. With
out this broad minded search for the
truth Towlo would today stand eligible.
We belioe in lUlng up to the Bpirit
of an agreement But we don't be
Uoe in hunting up extremely doubtful
oases and forcing them under the rule.
What of Towlo''
In the spring of 1912 Towle played
baseball at Nebraska. Baseball is a
major sport There is a rule that a
man who participates in eighty per
cent of tho contests in a major sport
is awarded an "N" and a life pass.
This team of which Towle was a mem
ber played three games. Towle played
nine innings in all threo. Yet no "N"
nor life pass was awarded him. No
official recognition of the team was
gion Tho members of this team
actualh bought their own suits, gloves
and other etiuipinont. It was not a
recognized University team. Yet the
fact that Towle played on this team
makes him ineligible He is now cred
ited with having participated In a
YEAR OF COLLEGE ATHLETICS.
Doesn't this seem to ou rather tardy
recognition'' nd lomember, no one
but our own people would have ever
tried to construe it this way. It is
kind at tin, tune to show Mr. Towle
now how much we appreciate his
efforts on the previously unrecognized
baseball team of I'M 2.
We will -ay nothing of the fact that
we bellow, own if the 1912 team wnB
trul a Nebraska team, that the spirit
of the ruling has been misinterpreted.
The ruling slates that no man shall
participate m college athletics more
than throe yeais A war, wo take It,
Is throe hundred sixty-five days.
Towle started in athletics in the spring
Tan Blind F.ylet Street Shoes, $4.50
BUDD, 1415 0 St.
of 1912. Wb flrBt yonr was over then
In tho Bprlng of 1913, hln second In tho
spring of 1914, his third In the Bprlng
of 1915. True It Is, ho could not play
baseball in 1915. Rut football comon
In tho fall before hlB threo yeara ex
pire. When 1b a man's third year of
college over If he startB In 8ChoofmUl
year? Ib It over In June after he has
been hero two and a half years? Yet
Towlo has played "THREE YEARS"
OF COLLEGE ATHLETICS
But tho din Is cast. Towlo 1b out
for good and all. In losing Max Towle
tho Cornhuskor team loses ono of the
best players who ever battled for tho
Scarlet and tho Cream. We know
what this moans to Mr. Towlo. But
to tho supporters of old Nebraska it
menus a good deal more.
Tho mllltnry department has sub
mitted something definite concerning
camp. They aro now willing to tell
us just what they plan to do, and how
they expect to do It This is all that
tho Dally Nebraskan wanted What
we Insisted upon wajB THAT THE
CADET KNOW FOR WHAT HE
PETITIONS. A few facts have been
coming to tho surface ever since. The
full plans are given in today's paper.
Tho Nebraskan is not opposed to
camp, nor is it advocating It. But
it 1b opposed to any nttempt to secure
Bigners to a petition unless each and
every signer knows what ho is signing.
Tho question is one of great Impor
tance. Formerly camp was required
There was no argument concerning
whether or not the cadets favored it,
whether or not it was a good thing for
themselves. Then came the Crete
camp and the end. Now the depart
ment is anxious to have it reinstated
Of course, it moans considerable to
this department. Of course, it is most
desirous of having camp reinstated
But is it best for tho cadets as stu
dents, not as soldiers? And is it best
for the University?
Wo don't stand on either side We
believe that It Is a matter that should
bo given the most careful considera
tion. And we are certain that it will
bo before the Regents grant the re
quest. Ono of the determining factors
In their consideration will be: DO
THE CADETS WANT IT? The Ne
braskan Insists that tho Regents know
tho true sentiment of the cadets. And
this can not bo secured by nsking
sometimes more than mere aBking
tho cadets to sign a petition of which
they know almost nothing. They
must know the facts. Then, and not
until then, can we get a true expres
sion of their sentiment We believe
In letting tho endets decide this for
themselves. We do not believe in re
vival meeting methods of securing
signers. So we have insisted on more
facts. Wo have them. Now we insist
that the cadets weigh these facts and
decide independently. Will they?

Owing 10 the increased circu
lation of Uic Daily Nebraskan,
it has been found necessary to
ask subscribers having lock
boxes at Station A to secure
their copies of the Nebraskan
through this means Beginning
Wednesday, February U5th, all
subscribers among tho students
and faculty will have their
copies of tho Nebraskan placed
in their respective lock boxes.
Also beginning Wednesday,
February 25th, subscribers
must give their names to the
person at tho window before
seouring their Daily NebniB
kans. This Is to enable tho
business management to check
up their subscription lists for
any possible errorB which may
have crept in during tho sub
scription campaign. While this
may bo a slight Inconvenience
for a few days, wo trust that it
will not work a hardship upon
The Business Management.
