It was found that tho .band Is well

Kdltor of tho Dally Nebraskan:
With tho closing of tho basketball

for tho moment, from thought of any

to proposo tomo discussion of tho
whole subject of University athletics.
Everyone has noticed that ia good
many rather soveroly critical orticloM
on this general subject have .been ap- .
pcarlng latoly. In newspapers and
magazines. Even tho Atlantio Month
ly has published somo of tho ablest
of theso, two In February and one In
The jvolnts which scorn most often
to bo tho ground for criticism are tho
undemocratic nnturo of tho avorago
university system of athletics, and tho
unsportsmanlike conduct of many
games. It Is said that only a very
small percentngo of tho student body
is evon oxpected to participate, and
that tho few who aro of 'Sufficient
strength and ability to mako the
toams aro favored out of all propor
tion to any permanent worth in their
performance, so creating a falsosenso
of values in tho average student mind.
This last rosult Is aggravated in a

representatives of tho university are
encouraged in unsportsmanlike meth
ods of play for tho sako of- winning
As totho first cbargo that the tend
