One of tho meanest and littlest
tricks ever porpetrated by a collogo
paper was that of the scurrilous edi
torial about George Kllppln which ap
peared In a recent Issue of a lltorary
society publication. Some one. by ac
cident, happened to read tho article
and reported It to members of tho
tenm. It called forth vociferous pro
tests from old players, who wore moro
emphatic than rhetorical In tholr ex
pressions of such editorial spoon. In
the first place the writer did not
know what he was talking about.
Fllppln played left half Instead of
tackle. He was a bard working stud
ent while at this University. He car
ried a morning Journal route, looked
after an ofllce. anil did other work to
defray his college expenses.
The article says: "What Is of most
Interest to University students is the
fact that tho game resulted In such a
disgraceful affair, mainly because of
the conduct of one of Nebraska's for
imr students and players. To Flip
pin, nfo N'obraka's famous colored
right tackle, Is attached most of the
blame. Fllppln has done more, per
haps, than any other western man to
bring foot ball Into popular disfavor.
He takes into the gamo no brains or
skill; he believes in winning by crip
pling his opponents; he is brutal, and
a professional slugger, uurusnu m
lowed him to remain on her team
longer than she ought. But, now that
this disgrace to the truly college game
Is so well known any college which
will tolerate his presence on Its team,
for even a tcn-minuto hnlf, has no
right to compete for intercollegiate
Why didn't this criticism appear
when Fllppln was on the team. In
stead of the writer waiting until he
was nt a safe distance? The nrtlcle
bespeaks the Ignorance, baseness, and
cowardice of the writer.
There Is much discussion In debating
circles theso days concerning amend
ments to the local constitution, neces
sitated by the formation of a new
league with Missouri. The chief point
of difference is whether or not one who
has ttr represented the Institution in
an Interstate debate shall at any fiuure
time be eligible to represent us In a
similar contest against some other
state. To assume that granting such
privilege would be disastrous to debat
ing spirit is prcposerous when we con
sider how few of such representatives
would ever be here to take part a
second time together with the fact that
there will be six places to fill each
year. To accuse one of being selfish
for wishing to represent his alma
mater the second time Is to forget that
It is equally selfish to deny him that
right, provided he possesses the abil
ity. Looking at the question from the
point of tho University, It would seem
that we are entitled to the best repre
sentation that can be secured. To in
sure this small limitation should be
placed on those desiring to contest.
The competition should be open to all,

To those who have been at tho Uni

Last week Northwestern nnd Univer
sity of Illinois teams resorted to like
methods. The facts are that, through
newspapers and friends, the condition
of n team, and even Its plays, are re
ported accurately to opposing teams,
enabling them to counteract certain
plays. Unless some such method as
this Is adopted the team loses the ad
vantage of special coaching.
The Georgia legislature and the Chi
cago city council seem to be making
desperate efforts to attract public no
tice and become notorious. The former
has passed an anti-foot ball bill by a
vote of 91 to 3, declaring It a crime to
participate In a game, the punishment
being $500 fine, one year's imprison
ment, or both. The latter has an or
dinance pending which declares It a
misdemeanor to even watch the game,
the punishment being a fine of from
$5 to $50.
