A FIGHTING RECEPTION
A fighting Cornhusker team went down to defeat
yesterday but from all reports it was a glorious defeat.
Before losing to Pittsburgh they scored two touch
es on a team that held a string of Eastern oppon-
CntS "hertSam played its best. They rallied in the
second half and held their opponents without a score
while marking up another touchdown for themselves.
Nebraska lost but her reputation for producing power
ful football teams was upheld.
Tomorrow the Huskers return. At 9 :30 o clock
the team will arrive in the Burlington station Then
will come the chance for the student body to demon
strate that the University is solidly behind the Huskers.
The psychological effect of such a demonstration
cannot be underestimated. Nebraska faces two strong
opponents in less than two weeks. Her utmost in foot
ball strategy will need to be supported by the conn
dence, the inspiration, that only a united student body
Freshmen spirit as usual unleashed itself the night
before Olympics. If the same spirit bo developed to
meet the team Monday, the glow that the team wou Id
feel at such a reception should cause them to rise to
new heights in the two remaining games.
GOOD DRAMA CONSISTENTLY
"Liliom" second season production of the Univer-well-filled
houses for five perform-
ances of Molnar's great continental drama, ending with
Saturday evening's performance. me enmus.asuc re
ception of a new type of play, one which combined
the modernistic and unusual in plot together with more
simplified stage settings, demonstrated the popularity
of the Players to their patrons. The same high stand
ard of acting marked the portrayal of the difficult
drama of life among the peasants in Budapest. "Liliom"
certainly falls in the category of a play which has won
national and international prominence. The University
and Lincoln have testified their approval of it.
For eleven years the Players have occupied a def
inite place in the University by their consistent stand
ard of high class drama. In this, their twelfth consecu
tive year, they seem prepared to set another high mark
of merit in their plays. Measured in public approval,
the Players have already registered two distinctive and
widely-differing plays in "Alias the Deacon" and "Lil
iom." The two are a good indication of the variety
in the plays yet to come.
"Keep the Spoken Drama Alive," the motto of the
University Players, is a worthy one, especially since
the drama offered by them is of such a cultural, yet
entertaining type. The remaining plays are each as
distinctive and attractive as "Liliom." It is by such
good offices as that of the University Players in pres
enting fine drama consistently, that the fame of the
University will be spread.

To the Editor:
There appeared in this column recently an editor
ial upholding the co-educational college on the grounds
that it enables men and women to understand each
other better. The writer admitted, however, that in
separate colleges they learned more about other things,
but less about each other. What is the primary purpose
of the University anyhow? Is it, as D. N. contends,
primarily to enable men and women to understand each
Imagine Dr. Condra saying; "Ladies and gentle
men, what I want to impress upon you is this; the pri
mary purpose of this institution which you so gener
ously support is to teach young men and women to
know and understand each other, so that they may find
for themselves more suitable and congenial mates at
an early period in life."'
Then too, are the sac-'.ices of parents who send
their sons and daughters to the university made to en
able the students to understand more of the opposite
sex? Or do the parents hope that their children, after
four or more years in an institution will have prepared
themselves in a fitting manner to fill their places in
the world? The parents would undoubtedly affirm the
It is very clear then that the only justification of
the co-educational college is that it is less expensive
to educate men and women in one institution, than to
have separate schools for them.

In Other Columns
In the face of all the howling to the effect that
the spirit of sportsmanship is disappearing from col
legiate football in favor of a cut-throat race to win
games and boost the gate receipts, the recent example
of sportsmanship displayed at Princeton is bracing and
refreshing to say the least.
The Princeton faculty committee, which was un
doubtedly backed up by the entire student body, vol
untarily petitioned the Yale athletic committee to with
draw its ruling preventing Yale's star ground-gainer
from participating 'in the traditional Princeton-Yale
gridiron battle. Caldwell had played in a football game
while he ws a freshman in another school. This was a
violation of a rule laid down in an agreement between
Yale, Princeton and Harvard.
The Princeton committee would have been entirely
within its rights if it had maintained a hands-off policy
and had approved the ruling which compels Yale to
suffer the loss of her greatest player. Undoubtedly,
without Caldwell in the game, Yale would have been
greatly weakened. Princeton could have greatly en
hanced her chances of victory over her ancient rival
by simply sitting back and letting things take their
That Princeton did go out of its way to urge that
Caldwell be permitted to play, is evidence of the most
indisputable kind that the winning of a game, though
desirable to be sure, is not yet so necessary in colle
giate circles that everything else is pushed into the
background. Sportsmanship such as shown by Prince
ton is what has put collegiate football on the throne
as king of American sports.

Friday evening. The U3ual organized
freshman parade and the paddling
bouts were lacking.
The fact that so many students
took advantage of the Armistice day
holiday to go home was the main
reason for the poor showing in at
tendance made by both classes. For
merly the Olympics have been held
during the morning of the last foot
ball game to be played on the home
field before Thanksgiving. This had
been the original plan this year, but
the time was changed to the after
noon when it was found that there
was too great a conflict with Satur
day morning classes.
