It h to bo hoped there will be n
good luimelu register fr the prelim
inary debutes. The time tor making
nuungements to put up n creditable
yerleH of debutes Is now at hand. Ev
eryone who believes he possesses the
luulltles of a debater should not full
to enlist as a contestant for a place
on the Knnsns-Nobmsku debate. He
member It Is no slight honor to repre
sent this university In a rrlondly for
ensic rivalry with Kansas. And It
should be the wish of every loyal stu
dent to see that our preliminary do
bntis are not Inciting of enthusiasm.
If all of us cannot make a creditable
showing us debaters, we can urge and
arouse the Interest of those who can.
It Is In every sense very desirable that
our ablest debaters be cnosen tills year
to go to Kansas, us the honors be
tween tho two universities have been
equally divided. It should be our sole
aim to pick again tho laurel of victory.
We can do It If we do our duty and
do It earnestly, hot no one be back
ward In tnking a part In those discus
sions. If you are not tho successful
competitor llu- practice received will
be invaluable, By all means let the
preliminary debutes be well attended.
Do not permit studies to stand In the
way of giving the debaters a good aud
ience. It will be nn Inspiration to
them, and enable them to do the best
they nre capable. This Is a university
undertaking and both students niid
professors alike should lend every ef
fort to make it a royal success.
This Is evidently a political your.
Everybody Is a politician, ami we trust
In the noblest sense of the word. Do
slrnble ns it Is that every student
should study the polttlcal issues with
cnrt and with intelligence, yet our en
thuslnsm for party should not stand In
the way of university work. He'iiem
ber there is plenty ot time for us to
take part in politics. Let us devote
our college days to earnest and tm
ergetle work with our books, and when
It comes time to enter the political me
nu, we will be better tltted to relied
credit upon our Alma Mater. Student
rnllles are all right In tholr nature.
But we should not allow them to inter
fere with an lmpnrtlul and earnest
search for truth on political and econ
omic questons. To find the truth
should be the ultimate aim of our col
lege work. It matters not what con
clusions we may be led to by our stu
dies, nor how they may differ from
our previous opinions, the fair-minded
must recognize them ns wise and Just.
Partisanship must be discarded by the
seekers after truth. Nowhere Is this
moiy Inijwrtant than In our colleges.
Let us not place party above country,
but strive to do that wnlch Is for our
own good and for the good of human-
Every henrt was mndo glad Monday
morning when the result of tho football
subscription was announced. There is
cause to rejoice. What wo needed to
start a successful your was accomplished,
and the students of this univorslty need
have no fear but that now our financial
needs are bridged over. While the col
lodion was large and generous, still It
whs not more than ought to be expected
from a university the size of ours. We
cannot feel that we have done a good
deed and therefore that wo eon now lot
the mntter havo no thought. Wo cannot
sit down with our hands folded and say
"Wo havo done our full duty." Thero Is
much more to bo done yet. A promising
Held Is nm)ng thu students who wore
not at that mnss-meotlng. We hopo
there Is not a student In our midst, who
would havo contributed his mlto had ho
been there, and now refuses to como for
ward and bund It In. Of courso the
chapol was filled Monday, but thoro were
many who wore not there. How would It
bo to havo a mnss-meotlng of thoso who
were absent, nnd see what they could do
In tho same line?
Tho university of Nebraska nearly ap-
pronched u period In her career when
sho might havo been taken for a genuine
collego with students, Inst Monday. Tho
mirrouudhiK of our Institution ore not
emphutlcully conducive to arouse college
spirit. Hut once In a while we can see
the outeropplngs ot that air of college
life, that goes down In one's memory and
ever rooms with tho pleasuntest sensa
tions In after life. We cannot afford to
be loo proslnc. It Is not absolutely nes
essary to iniiko u business process of at
tending college. If it little oliitrm of
emotion enters Imp our life here, it Is
not to be thrust out as uiiiiiiiul.v. Ho
there Is no need to be nsliamed ofyonr
self If you are found on theeaniiuis yel
ling or giving away to your enthusiasm.
We say keep It up. Enter Into the spir
it of university affairs us they deserve,
noi as you perhaps think they ought to
TheiV has been mora or less com
plaint In our midst from time to time
about the low suholurly standing or our
football players. Tuklug all things Into
consideration, II seems 'that even our
rneiilt., ought to shoulder a little of the
hlait.o for this state of nlTulrs. it is
a notorious fact thut our students are
required, or at least do work harder,
than students of other .Institutions of
like nature, on the other liainl, mem
bers of the faculty are emphatic In their
advice lo students don't take loo much
work. However It Is often that hey
themselves start the bad example by
their requirements. We think that the
complaint could be adjusted more read
ily by compromising from both sides. If
tho board of athletics bus formulnted n
code of rules to govern the student life
of the football player, we cttll upon the
members of thut board to enforce them.
On the other hand It is but proper that
the authorities should see that the
ball player does not register for more
work tluin he can conveniently carry.
The Nebrasknn makes another plea for
"copy" this year. Though It may not
have been noticed, the paper Is printed
In tvpe which Is a size smaller than that
used last year. With this ehange comes
the uncomfortable feeling among the edi
tors, that this difference must be made
up by extra work. We are In most need
of locals, nnd If there Is anyone who Is
thirsting for the doubtful glor of of
ficiating in this capacity, we uro willing
to supply this If he supplies the much
needed news Items. If you "know any
thing" you will confer n favor on us If
you whisper It In the ear of one of the
editors. Wo want It If It Is tho most
Inslgnltlcant mutter. Wo won't guaran
tee to publish everything thut Is handed
In, but what Is worth It will go into our
Couch ltohlnsoii has been quite on
couiaged during the past week by tho In
terest that has been aroused in football
affairs. He assures us that tills year
Nebraska will have a team of eleven
trained men, in spite of everything.
Everyone is with L'oneh Hobinson on
this point. We are to be congratulated
on the fact that this year we have se
cured n coach who so thoroughly under
stands his business. Mr. Hobinson rep
resents the best typo of tho eastern foot
ball player. We hope he will use all the
authority vested In him as a coach.
The usual amount of discontent about
the cadet promotions has begun to be
manifested. It seems that members of
the baud are among tho most disappoint
ed ones. Hut cadet promotions nro tho
most unsatisfactory of tilings to guess
at, or speculate upon. Hut no one can
doubt but that all was done In an ab
solute spirit of fairness, nnd like tho
elections to Hill Heta Kappa, there Is
apt to bo more or less unfavorable com
ment about them.
The efficiency of a mass-meeting has
been satisfactorily demonstrated. It
will not bo a gross error on our part If
wo employ a few more of thorn to facil
itate matters once In a while. Wo hopo
tile t'hnncellor spoke advisedly when ho
said that this one was to be tho first of
a series of them. Thoy will bo bene
ficial to tho wolfaro of tho university and
they are a strong factor In arousing en
thusiasm. THE PREP.
With books in hand, the callow prep
Ssruts up the Unl walk.
You'd think he knew a great big lot
To hear the fellow talk,
At home you know his mother thought
That hu was awful smnrt,
Because he knew some Latin words
That he could say by henrt.
They all looked up to Johnny with
Deep reveronce In tholr eyes,
And hiB poor bend kopt swelling till
It renched enormous size.
But soon the prof got In his work
To test the prepple's brain,
And then you saw across his face
There shot a look of pain.
One hour of mortal agony
The youthful student spent,
A sadder but a wiser youth
.When out tho door he went.
With books in hand the trembling prep
Came meekly down the walk,
You'd think he did not know a thing
To hear the preppie talk.
