Wednesday, April 1, 1914
In yesterday's paper wo answered
tho first of tho two .articles by Mr.
Wood which was, duo to unavoidable
circumstances, hold in tho composing
room until today. Now we nave a
frosh one on our hands. Just what
furthef Is set forth.
Not because they wore left out, but
because of tho manner in which tho
leaving was done, is complaint made.
In tho first place, It is complained that
tho committeo limited thoir act to
playing time of fifteen minutes. This
1b absolutely no grounds for complaint.
Every other organization was in
structed in tho same way. Of courso,
when played thoy were given all tho
tlmo tholr act morltedr-but it was
necessary to put a limit somewhere on
tho sketches to hold them in bounds.
There can be no grounds for criticism
It is truo that Mr. Wood did not
know that his Bketch had boon refused
until somo tlmo after it had boon sub
mitted. It is also truo that the en
gineers put "considerable tlmo and
somo money" on tho playlet. This Is
to be regretted. But tho committeo
can not bo hold responsible for this.
Tho fact Is, tho engineers woro given
an extension of tlmo accorded to no
other organization from February UT
to March 3. When their synopsis had
boon turned In and found by tho com
mittee to bo unworthy of further con
sideration, tho committeo mailed to
Mr. Wood, on MnreTi fl. nlqng with
those to all other organisations, a lot
tor notifying lilm that tho actTtad Teen
-refused. This was dono at once. All
tho other lotters reached thoso to
whom they woro directed. Mr, Wood's
did not. It has not been returned to
. tho senders all trace of it is lost.
-This is certainly unfo.rtunato. But, In
all fairness, can you blamo tho com
mittee for not tracing an addressed,
stamped letter? Why didn't Wood In
quiro before ho started work? Per
haps 'twero better safe than sorry.
"Was it not a case of carolossness of

tho commltteo in failing to notify us
promptly?" asks Mr. Wood. Do you
think it waB? t certainly was not
their fault that tho letter was not de-
uverod, nor can anyono hold them
careless for not iriquirjng if the letter
was delivered or not. But, as a matter
of fact, Mr. Charlesworth called Mr.
Wood's home some half-dozen times
and mado two special trips to tho En
gineering Building in an effort to talk
tho whole affair over with Mr. Wood.
Mr. Charlesworth did not soo Mr.
Wood. Was ho careloss? Can tho
committeo justly bo hold negligible?
Then on. March 11 thoy wore notified.
Tho NEBRASKAN boliovcs that tho
College of Engineering should have
boon roprcsentod In Unlvorslty Night.
But thoy" ;did'rt't dosorvo to T6 repre
sented, in tho opinion of the commit
tee which wo consider as fair and
Just nftor investigating both sides
without a better act tlian tho one sub
mltted. The' fact that thoy wore not
notified until somo time, though not
threo wookB, after they submitted
tholr skotch is unfortunate, but offers
no grounds for accusations of unfair
ness, partiality, and inofllclency.
AND THE RESOLUTION
We shall take this resolution of tho
Board of Control of tho Engineering
Society up "Whoreas" by "Whereas,"
and soo upon just what provocation
tho wholo was written.
In tho first "Whoreas" thoy com
plafn that the NEBRASKAN fallod to
print tho article it attacked. We
plead guilty. Wo wanted above all
things to print that article yesterday
and show the students just how flimsy
and foolish wore the grounds for com-
plaint. Wo are just as sorry as you
are that it waB cut by tho "make-up" But Is that any reason for tho exclu
man. Then they say wo took it as'.slon of other organizations?
an expression of the general sentiment
of tho engineers. ThiB wo deny. We
very carefully referred to the article
as coming from "T. W." Nowhere did
wo Intimate that it was tho general
consensus of engineoring opinion. Of
course, "T. W." was tfioir authorized
agent In tho matter.
Number two accuses us of putting
tho students. Wb didn't havo any
thing to do with that. Their repre
sentative mado it appear that they
woro "crabbing" and complaining with
out cauBe. Wo didn't do it.
Next thoy accuse ub of assuming to
advise tho engineers, in ono partic
ular wo havo. Wo did advise them,
and wo do it again, to wrlto a better
play next year and to quit "hollering"
when they have no "holler" coming.
Tho last ono harps on tho delay in
jiotlfylng thorn that their act was re
jected. Here are tho facts: The en
gineers were notified boforo tholr
January mooting to get Uielr skotch In
by February 18. The tlmo was later
extended, duo to a change in date, till
Ffihrnnry 27. TTpnn tho Rneclal re
quest of Mn Wood, the engineers, were
given until March 3. Tholr copy camo
in on that-day. On March-G-Mr Reed
mailod a letter to Mr. Wood notifying
him that tho onglnoorsact could not
bo acdopted. On March 11 thocom
mitteo was informed that tho en
gineers woro still working on tho
skotdh. Mr. Mnpos at onco told thorn
porsonajly that tholr act was rojected.
Thoy turned In their act on March 3,
and tit was refused to their positive
knowledge on March 11. Where are
tho two weeks thlB resolution and tho
threo Mr.. Wood alleges passed before
they were notified t
These are tho facts.- Whore tho en
gineers navo grounds lor good, sane
complaint is beyond us. Let this end
the matter for once and all.

University Night has passed. You
woro no doubt there and have heard
tho subsequent comments upon it.
Somo say It was better than ever, yet
many insist that tho spirit of Univer
sity Night is dead. By calmly looking
back at other University Nights, you
will no doubt agree with me that there
was a vast difference between this
years. Can you call a little stunt
pulled of by pnly six of tho different
departments and organizations in the
school "an oll-Unlverslty N"ight?" Do
you recall last year when, during this
important event, there was a con
tinual roar of laughter and cheering
from tho rise to the fall of the curtain.
Then Laws, Ags, Engineers, Military
Department, Glee Club, Fraternities,
Sororities and foresters each toad
their little play. That was "Univer
sity Night" in its true Bense. This
year the Laws and tho Dramatic Club
certainly presented classy sketches.
Saturday's Rag Bays that the coia
mltteo In charge deserves great credit
FOR WHAT? Did they produce a
University Night? Were all organiza
tions given an opportunity to partici
pate In this event, or were somo of
them cut to give longer time to other
favored organizations? Who is re
sponsible for the appointment of the
to all concerned? Tho Y. M. C. A.!
If tho Y. M. C. A. authorities cannot
appoint an impartial committeo and
ono that will not overlook tho true
purpose of University Night, they
should lose tho right to manage this
Important affair and it should bo taken
over by tho general student body. Tlio
presidents of the different organiza
tions should each appoint a man to
the general committeo for tho purpose
of producing a real 'ALL UNIVER.
SITY NIGHT." AN ENGINEER.
Through an error, an article written
fo.r Tuesday's Forum was omitted.
However, this article drew a longedl-
torlal accusing the writer of personal
sorehead, and Intimating that tho En
gineers woro sore on account of being
loft out of tho Unlvorslty Night stunt.
Wo are complaining, not because wo
woro loft out, but becauso wo think
that tho committee In charge lost
sight of tho purpose of Unlversjty
Night and also on account of tho way
In which wo wero loft out.
These are the facts o'f tho case:
The Epgmeors woro Invited to wrlto a
skotch for tho annual University
event, which they did. The commit
tee limited tho skotch to fifteen min
utes and exprossod their preference
for a. ta"ko-off on tho professors. Tho
general committeo aBkod for a synop
sis of tho sketch and rocelved tho
,same. Three weeks later tho chair
man of tho general committee phoned
to mo saying that the Engineers' stunt
had been rejected on account of tho
synopsis being too brlof. In tho mean
time the Engineers- had spent consid
erable time nnd some money prepar
ing tho sketch.
Was this not a cuuso for complaint?
Was It not a case of carelessness of
tho committeo Jn failing to nbtify us
Furthermore, when the event camel
off It developed that the Laws had
lorty-nve minutes, flle Jtnarmacists
nearly thirty, and even the tumblers
were allowed over fifteen minutes.
In yesterday's article I proposed
that in tho future tho committee be
appointed from members of the differ
ent University organizations by their
respective presidents. Tho editor sug
gests that it bo handled by the student
council when that body is formed, and
in this I heartily concur with him.
I wish to 'correct any wrong ideas
which are afloat that there Is any per
sonal feeling whatever involved in
this controversy, but to let It be known
that Istand-forf air plajr inall thlngB;
and for a University Night with the
spirit of those of former years.

Whereas, The Dally Nebraskan, in
Its issue of March 31, published an
editorial attacking a letter intended
for tho Forum and which was not pub
lished, and which the Daily Nebraskan
considered as representing tho attl
tude of the engineers ns a whole, and.
Whoreas, The said editorial put tho
Engineers In tho wrong light, and,
Whereas, The Daily Nebraskan In
Its editorial columns, assumes to ac
cuse the Engineers of "suffering from
an acute case of sour grapes," and
takes upon itself the duties of Adviser
to Engineers, and,
Whereas, The real grievance of the
Engineers is not that their act was
not considered good enough to be pre
sented at University Night, but that
their representatives woro allowed to
proceed -with tho preparation of the
act and were not notified of the action
of the University Night committee for
over two weeks after that committeo T
had been given an opportunity to
juago upon -the merits of the act;
therefore, be it
Resolved, That we, tho Board of
Control, of. the Engineering Society,
acquaint the public with the real at
titude of the Engineers on this matter.
