MORE THAN VICTORY
The Nebraska Cornhuskcrs at Ur
bana yesterday afternoon defeated
a team that before the game wan
rated a 2 to 1 favosit. The Husker
victory was brought about through
gameness and fighting spirit in the
face of odds. The wet field undoubt
edly hampered the light, fast Ne
braska brickfield and made the line
less effective. But in spite of these
handicaps the Iluskers won.
Today at 3 o'clock the students of
the University will have an oppor
tunity to show their loyalty to the
team by meeting the train on ,hich
it arrives. The fine send-off given
the team undoubtedly helped the
fighting spirit that later brought vic
tory, ar-d an enthusiastic welcome
home will keep that spirit up for
Sweet though victory may be, it
was not in winning that the Nebras
ka team showed its greatness, but in
the gallant spirit of never-say-die
thit the victory was accompished..
This spirit is the thing that makes
college football dear to the specta
tor, and that causes it to withstand
its critics so successfully. One can
hardly imagine a paid athlete going
on the field and b'tiling with the
fevered seal of the average college
The students, therefore, who wel
come home their team today should
remember that honor is due not for
winning alone, but for the manner
in which it won.
Class elections come Tuesday. The
names of the candidates are an
nounced in the Nebraskan today.
It's time for the customary "getout
the -vote" arguments. All elections
are alike in this respect. Someone
nearly always starts a movement to
induce every eligible person to cast
Enthusiastic citizens are prone to
forget that a blind vote is more
dangerous to the community than no
vot. Of far greater importance
than the duty fo voting, is the duty
of finding out how to vote. Ballots
cast by persons ignorant of the con
didates and the issues tend to make
an election a mere game of chance.
It would be just as well to decide
by drawing straws as to trust to
votes that are cast carelessly and
The University student who is
genuinely interested in his class and
bis school will make an effort to get
acquainted with the candidates be
fore voting. There are few issues
in these class elections, but it is im

Vague and incorrect thinking is due,
in part at least, to vague and incor

know, but not simply to know. We
seek in order to think and to do.
That it is possible to deliberately
practice thinking on a selected sub
ject seems to be wholly unknown to
many persons. Many of us consider
ourselves to be doing nothing unless
we are talking, reading, walkirs',,
working with the hands, dancing, or
learning something. And, often, we
are doing nothing. Many of us are
wholly unable to be busy with the

nothing, make no marks on paper,

which ought to be sufficient even
at the beginning for at least thirty
minutes real thinking. He might

AGAINST CRACK PLATOONS.
To the Editor:
In the Friday issue of The Daily
Nebraskan, there appeared an article
on the front page to the effect that
Captain Huskea of the military de
partment was making plans for the
formation of a platoon of crack
crack cadets in ddrillmg, to be taken
from the junior advanced classes in
In my opinion, this will in time do
away with the Pershing Rifles, a
crack drill organization founded by
General John J. Pershing, then com
mandant of the University of Ne
braska R. O. T. C
Without doubt the underclassmen
will not be interested in Pershing
Rifles. They will devote their time
and attention to the platoon to be
formed by Captain Huskea.
The Pershing Rifles had plans
completed to drill between halves of
the football games this fall, but if
these plans that are mentioned are
pursued, it will mean that their plans
will have to be dropped.
Also, the Pershing Rifles was about
to be made a national organization;
if this word were to get around to
the universities that had applied for
it they would no doubt withdraw.
The question is, should or should
not the Pershing Rifles continue?
A PERSHING RIFLE.
To the Editor:
I was pleased to note in last Thurs
day's Nebraskan that the Student
Council has taken up the question of
smoking on the campus, with sugges
tions that the practice be stopped. I
hope that the suggestion will be well
taken by the students, both because
of the fire hatard, which is the rea
son the board of regents made the
rule prohibiting smoking around the
buildings, and also because there is
a considerable number of students
who object to having the smoking
going on near them.
If the present ruling of tho Board
of Regents cannot be enforced, the
Student Council should make a new
rule covering the matter. Such a rule
could be enforced by instituting a
system of campus police. Of course,
before anything so drastic as that
were done, it might be well to obtain
the endorsement of the student body
by holding a popular referendum.

when you see them, for they
may be had in colors to match
every slicker, balbrifyan and
dress-up costume! Smart novel
ties in pouch, envelope, kodak,

manufacturer in America!
Think of it just $50 and yoo
can appear on the campus all
winter looking as though you
had just stepped out of Vogue.
Of course these are not $50
coats it's just your good for
tune to be able to buy them for
so little! Lavishly trimmed
with GOOD furs, fashioned of
the new fabrics in the new
shades, and cut on flaring 1925
Especially for Co-eds
are Magee's Felt
Hats at $5.00
the smartest little hats you
ever saw just the kind that
have a particular affinity for
slickers! You may get them
wet or even sit on 'em, and
they'll come up smiling. Won
derfully soft and pliable, they
are fashioned from the sort of
felt you usually find only in
higher priced hats. Nearly a
dozen shapes and colors to
choose from, so you'll surely
find the model that will cause
your latest suitor to decide that
you're even better looking than
he thovrjht you were.

ers help you be Ready

What a satisfaction to wear
on the first chilly days NOT
the dilapidated winter gar
ments of last year, but spick
and span coats and frocks that
are the result of expert clean
ing and pressing by the Modern
Cleaners at 14th and G. It's a
joy to patronize them. Not
only do they do first class work,
but they guarantee it! You
wont be in the boots of the co
ed who had to refuse formal
bids all last year, just because
some cleaner ruined her only
party dress. No indeed! 11
the Modern Cleaners did hap
pen to ruin a dress (and it's
highly improbable) they'd buy
you a new one.

extreme comfort. Especially
featured in their collection are
pumps in plain, beaded and

models and Bohemian ties. If
every college girl wore Speier's
shoes, she could forget all
about the state of her bob for
