Sixteen men will go into the sec
ond numeral meet in the stadium on
Thursday afternoon at 4 o'clock with
points already earned toward a track
numeral. This' will be the second
of a series of fall meets on the Hus-
ker track schedule this fall. Coach
Schulte hopes to have more men out
for the second meet, and provided
the weather is good, better time will
be made.
The Husker weakness in the field
events and the 440 yard dash can be
strengthened if candidates can gain
experience and be trained this fall,
according to the veteran Husker
coach. Besides building up for the
spring team, fall training makes it
possible for the athletes to get some
recognition for their work, in the
form of track numerals.
Sixteen Have Points
Of the sixteen men who have won
points toward a numeray, three have
already won their numeral. Durish
in the shot put and discus throw com
pleted the twelve point requirement
in two or more events. Fleming by
making his mark in the two hurdle
races, broad jump and high jump,
won twelve points. The third man,
Green, by making good time in the
hundred yard dash and low hurdles
gained twelve points.
Lemly, who ran the half-mile in
fast time last Thursday has eleven
points to his credit. He must make
one or more points in another event
before he can win the numeral. The
ther men who are on the road to
numeralis are: Doty, in the broad
jump; Davenport, running the two
tweny and hundred yard dashes;
Graham, in the 2-mile; Hepperly,
running the 440-yard dash; Hulsker,
high j'umper; Holmes, low hurdles;

The following tribute to the Navy
has been written by Lieut. Col.
Jewett, commandant of cadets, in
lieu of formal exercises that had been
contemplated for the Nebraska R. O.
T. C. regiment in observance of
Navy Day, and abondoned on account
of the coinflict with class hours:
Today, October 27, is Navy Day.
On this day the navy keeps open
house for all persons who will accept
its hospitality. We in the interior
of this broad country, little appre
ciate what the navy means to those
who live nearer the coast. Last
year on Navy Day, 380,000 people
visited the various ships of the navy
scattered along the ports of our sea-
Laud Peace Time Efforts
"We honor the navy, not only be
cause of its glorious deeds in our
wars and for the men it has trained
who have written their names in im
perishable fame in our annals, but
also because of its untiring efforts
in times of peace.
"It guards the shipping lanes of
the North Atlantic against the cruel
scourge of the gigantic icebergs. It
was first to render assistance to the
homeles of Smyrna and tp the earth
quake sufferers at Tokio. It guards
our citizens in their business and
travels throughout the globe. Some
of our most notable diplomatic suc
ceses have been achieved by Naval
officers, notably by Commodore
Kearney in China, in 1840, and Perry
in Japan in 1853.
"October 27 has been set aside as
Navy Day because it marks the anni
versary of the presentation to Con
gress in 1775 of a bill providing for
the construction of the first ships of
the navy. It is also the anniversary
of the birth of the late President
Roosevelt, . who while President, did
so much to establish a sound naval
policy for this country.
Naval Man Once Here
"Although the University of Neb
raska is far from the sea, it can claim
the distinction of having, at one time,
a graduate of the Naval Academy, as
Commandant of Cadets. Lieutenant
Richard Townley, Commandant from
1882 to 1884, was from the navy,
"Today as we do honor to our navy
we cannot but be thrilled with the
thought of the exploits of its many
heroes. The names of John Paul
Jones, Lawrence, Perry, Farragut,
and Evans will always hold a promi
nent place in the pages of our his
torv. To the officers and men oi
our present navy, who by their tire
less efforts are maintaining the lofty
tradition of our sea force, we should
pledge our hearty support."

Chancellor Avery has issued the
following statement at the request
of the Omaha Bee, in reply to charges
made against modern universities by
Dr. Glenn Frank, recently inaugur
ated president of the Uliversity of
Wisconsin. Dr. Frank stated that
universities pay too much attention
to buildings and landscaping and
neglect the needed revision of their
curricu'a to meet the needs of the
modern knowledge.
The Chancellor's statement:
"Veterans in university and college
work are not surprised at the attack
of Dr. Glenn Frank, President of
University of Wisconsin, upon the .
methods of higher education in Amer
ica. Knowing him as a brilliant
writer without exeprience as a col
lege executive, they anticipated such .
an address. Perhaps President Frank
did not intend it as an attack but
rather as a corrective address deliv
ered with sufficient emphasis to at
tract wide attention. If the press
report represents President Frank
fairly, it can hardly be considered
as having been spoken judiciously.
Buildings Needed Here
"Viewed in most favorable light
it is the type of protest that might
be utttered in regard to the erection
of such buildings as one sees in some
of the great endowed institutions of
the east and possibly in one or two
state institutions. The spirit of
America might also be criticized as
displaying itself in the erection of the
commodious and permanent school
buildings that one sees in every pro
gressive city, in the erection of the
monumental churches, in the new
statie capitols, and even in glorified
newspaper buildings, such as the Chi
cago Tribune. Perhaps President
Frank has caught a feeling that may
have come to some who considered
themselves "intellectuals" as they
watched the building of the Parth
enon, the Colloseum, the great cath
edrals, or the modern sky-scrappers.
"The only point, however, that
seems to bring out at this time is as
follows: The institutions of the
agricultural states have been com
pelled by force of circumstances to
adopt so modest a program that I am
sure President Frank will be glad to
say he did not have them in mind.
At Nebraska we are housing student
in two buildings that have been con
demned for years. Better public
schools have been wrecked all the
way from Gering to Omaha. The
Social Science Hall is the only build
ing on the University city campus
that will compare at all favorably
with dozens of public school buildings
recently erected all over the state.
The investment in buildings per stu
dent at the University is only about
one-third of the per capita invest
ment per pupil in many of the school
districts. We have reached a point
where teaching conditions are so bad
that it is not a question of erecting
splendid palaces, but merely of con
sidering the health and safety of the
students and faculty. Nebraska Hall,
the roof and third story of which
have been removed in the interest of
safety, actually cost the state only a
little more money than the invest
ment represented by some of the gas
oline filling stations in the city of
Does Not Apply
"In conclusion I may say I feel
personally a good deal like cne who
has been to church and heard a pow
erful and somewhat radical sermon
on the faults of the era. I can go
back complacently to my very mod
est abode, speculating whether the
preacher got under the cuticle of
some of my opulent and extravaganti
acquaintances, but with the feeling
that none of his stricture hit me or
my personal associates in the slight
est degree."
Dr. Frank charged the universi
ties with being "merely charnel
houses in which creative education
lies buried" and "intellectual depart
ment stores" educationally "head
less," with presidents "little more
than business managers and their
