If complaints by Oborlln football
plnyers uro well founded, Michigan
men surely lack common courtesy. In
tho recent game between the two col
leges, tho Oberlin men complained
of rough and ungentlemanly treatment
at tho hands of the Mlehlgnn men. Tho
complaints have lefn carried so far
that tho Oberlin Advisory Hoard has
appointed a committee to investigate
tho nrt'alr, and in a mass meeting the
students passed resolutions condemn
ing tho action of Michigan. Because
a team opposes us on the gridiron is
no reason why they should he treated
other than gentlemanly, both on and
off iho Held. On the contrary, a visit
ing team should ho shown nil the
courtesy possible. Such treatment is
an index of college spirit.
Tomorrow Is the last day of regis
tration for all Lincoln voters. If a
namo does not appear on the books,
the only way in which the vote can
be sworn in Tuesday Is on condition
that absence from the city, sickness,
or other equally important objection,
prevented registration. Mere forgct
fulness will not be sniUcient excuse.
Under a ruling of our supreme court
all are privileged to vote here who con
sider Lincoln their home and have re
sided in the state, county, and ward the
required length of time. Everyone el
igible to a vote should see to it that he
is properly registered in due time.
Summary action by the faculty of
Hillsdale college. In a recent athletic
nilebohavlor, is commendable. Such
prompt action may sere as a damper
upon simular practices in other col
leges. The faculty expelled the man
agers of the bootball team from col
lege and suspended the captain from
participation in athletics. Both are
chaiged with playing a man on the
tortm rontrary to the rules of the ath
letic board. Whether the action of
the faculty be rescinded, as is often
the case, or not. the stamp of dishonor
haa been placed upon such conduct.
Dr. Kranois E. Clark, in his address
In chapel. Monday morning, spoke
strongly on the tendency toward low
ering college ideals. This tendency
, should be eradicated if college sur
roundings change the man from one of
high Ideals to a man of few ideals; the
college training Is at fault. In Ne
braska we have perfect freedom, and
this freedom sometimes is character
ized by a falling of ideals; instead of
a constant building up of high motives.
Today materialism is ranv.mnt, and in
a Bonse is Iconoclastic. The bright ex
amples set before us forbid a fall to
Buch a plane. We should have a grow
ing sense of our responsibility to man
kind. To excel in football is well but
It is not the acme of our aspiration.
President Jesse, of Missouri Stat"
University was evidently misunder
stood by Chancellor Snow, of Kansas,
regarding his stand on athletics. Pres
ident Jesse openly condemned profes
sionalism in any form whatsoever,
and wherever found. No more in Kan
sas than in Missouri, or any other uni
versity. His statements were Intended
generally, and not as applying to the
University of Kansas In particular.
The persistence wit1; which young
America continues to forge to the
fre.nt is shown by the example of J.
II. Raymond, president of the Uni
versity of West Virginia. He is only
twe-nty-nlne years old and at the age
of nine was selling papers on the
stieets of Chicago. Persistence and
endurance are recognized Jn the col
legiate field as well aB elsewhere
Tho nowspapora havo not cenBcd dis
cussing tho Prlncoton Inn affair. Tho
odium of public disapproval rests upon
tho action of many Princeton profoa
sors In signing tho petition for Uconso.
Tho granting of this Uconso to Boll
liquors to tho Prlncoton Inn may ho
an Indication of higher education but
wo think not.
REV. CLARK TALKS.
Tho studontB of tho University had
tho pleasure, last Monday morning, of
listening to a short address by tho
Rov. Francis 13. Claik, who Is well
known as tho father of tho Christian
Endeavor movement. The themo of
Rev. Clark's talk was that the men of
greatest influence nro thoso who havo
IdralB. To Illustrate this ho took tho
Ufo of William Cary, tho celebrated
missionary. Tho speaker had with
him a most Interesting relic a ham
mnr iihpiI bv Cnr when ho was a poor
cobbler and which was used as a gavel
at the recent convention of tho Chris
tian Endeavorers society In San Krnn
chco. Rev. Clark drew several lessons
from this old hammer and its original
owner, William Cary. In nil the his
tory of the world there were few men
who made themselves greater scholars
especially In linguistic lines. Cary
was a master of Sanskrit and received
n salary of 5.000 rupees per month In
a college In India. The result of his
earnings were put Into tho building of
a magnificent college which stands as
a monument to tho consecrated intel
lect and learning of one man. In this
collcgo Is a collection of forty Bibles,
all translated into different languages,
by Cary, so that all the different tribes
of India might read the Gospel. Ho
apparently threw himself away among
the heathen and yet he thought It
worth while to give his unusual tal
ents to the people of far-off India.
The speaker then turned to the dan
gers of getting an education. Our
studies are so pressing that wo are
apt to forget that there Is another
whole sphere of our being which we
must explore if we would develop tho
highest man and womanhood.
wiv rinrk snld he had recently
come from South Africa where gold
and diamonds are the cniei oojecis 01
life. An interesting description was
gien of the big bonanza kings of that
region, but In the opinion of the
speaker, the greatest man in that coun
trv was not one of these rich mine
owners, but Andrew Murray, a Dutch
minister. Wherever he goes there is
a different atmosphere. He has started
schools for girls in many towns to in
troduce American ideas. Owing to the
efforts of Murray and his family, the
Cape of Good Hope has been made a
different sort of a place from the rest
of South Africa. We are too apt to
think that there is nothing to do, but
what Murray has done for South Af
rica the students of this University
could do for Nebraska.
Miss Elenor Raymond entertained
the girls of the Kappa. Kappa Gamma
Sorority and a few other friend3 Sat
urday afternoon. The guests were
blindfolded and asked to recognize
diffe-rent things by tasting, hearing,
smelling, and feeling. Miss Mabel
Richards proved protlctent for which
she received a beautiful bunch of Mel
eor roses. The remainder of the af
ternoon passed very quietly with mu

THE CLASS TEAMS.
The class teams have been out prac
ticing this week with the exception of
the freshmen. At a meeting of the
freshmen class held last Wednesuay.
Mr. Reed was elected manager of the
class team. Now that there Is some
reiognized head to the team the fresh
men will doubtless come out to pra -tice
and be prepared to make It hut
for the other teams. As yet no defi
nite date for the class games have
been decided upon. The game between
the Juniors and seniors will probably
be the first one to be played but the
date will be announced later. The du it
date of the Freshmon-Sophmore game
is also an uncertain question owing to
the delay of the freshmen in organ
izing a team.
The claims of the managers of the
respective teams remind one of the
claims of party managers who Halm
the sure election of their candidate
The freshmen are full of promises of
what they are going to do when they
once get started. The sophmores are
cluimlng everything in sight. The
strong freshmen eleven of last year
which gave tho Juniors such a tussle,
forms the neucleus of the present soph
omore team. The JunloiB have no
class team of last year to fall back
upon, but if confidence counts for any
thing, they have the pennant cinched.
The seniors won the championship
last year and naturally think they are
able to turn the trick again. It would
take a wise man to pick the winner,
but among the know-it-alls, the soph
omores and the seniors are the favor
ites. ATHLETIC BOARD MEETS.
