The Representative College Paper.
--' - - i -
Wc think it unnecessary to produce a
salutatory with this issue. As we simply
take up the work which was so successfully
"carried on by the Lasso last year, we do not
think any further introduction is necessary.
The Nkurasxan vrill be a representative col
lege paper, not standing for any single faction
or class, but for the whole University. It can
be truly said that the Nkbraskan is the only
representative paper in the University, and
as such we ask your patronage.
It is feared that there will be a tendency
to allow class organization and class spirit to
disappear on account of the adoption of the
new plan. This should not occur. A Uni
versity that is not lively is not worth attend
ing, especially in the western states. Let
the members of the different classes keer
their class organization.
It seems that the hopes of the college jour
nalists, that they might receive credit for
work accomplished in the newspaper line,
are about to be realized. Chancellor Can field
informs us that in conjunction with Prof.
Adams, he is trying to briag about that wel
come result. This will be of much consols
turn to those who have soughtto advertise
the University through the columns of the,
Another season of athletic activity ap
proaches. Last year an additional interest
in foot-ball was awakened on account of the
organization of the Interstate Foot-Ball Asso

the finances of the athletic association must
be considerably augmented to carry ou the
the club successfully in that organization.
The necessit' for new suits, for a competent
coacher, for association dues and numerous
other expenses appeal to the .friend of
athletic success in the University for finan
cial aid. The bo3's are already hard at work,
and their enthusiasm is greater than at any
previous time, A committee on finance has
been appointed, and arc now at work solicit
ing subscriptions to the foot-ball fund. It is
to be hoped that every student will give as
liberally as possible, as the foot-ball team
will be a great advertisement for the Univer
sity. Steps should be immediately taken to
adopt other college colors. Over thirty-one
colleges in the United States have old gold.
Many others have orange or some shade of
yellow. It is especially jlesirable to change
before the foot-ball games, as Iowa and
Missouri both have old gold and it will be
difficult to distinguish Nebraskans. Let us
adopt, if possible, some :olor characteristic
of the state, and though Nebraska is a sunny
state, let it be something besides yellow. We
should also have a new college yell. The .
present, one is too long. When shouted by
a crowd, listeners are unable to understand
-it. No; one would dream it meant the simple
words, University of Nebraska, It is partic
ularly hard on the throat. To give it a few
times exhausts one. With die chaagc of
systems let us also change both our otters
