The list of athletic trophies Is grow
ing and soon there ought to lie a cham
pionship trophy for almost every
event. Such being the case would no
doubt spur many good men to enter
Hie lists who now feel that they can
not afford the time. The largo athle
tic dub of the east recognize this fact
and sooner or later the spirit of love
for college will outgrow the personal
desire of winning or of gaining a
trophy. There is no reason why we
cannot turn out a flue, track team
and an excellent all-around athlete.
The O'Mnhaney gold medal ought, to
serve as an inspiration and tho man
winning the snme must be an athlete
and an honor to the University.

Those members of the olass who at
tempted to ride Into olllce by unfair
means certainly have no one but
themselves to blame for the adverse
criticism that is being heaped upon
them. Tho attempt to fasten upon
the olass a board of editors who Could

a division in the olass as now exists.
The experience of other classes lias

effort on the part of the whole class
can such a thing lie accomplished.

who accepts the business manage

risk of serious financial loss.

A FRAT MAN'S OPINION.
In a recent issue of the Hesperian,
a paper claimed to be strictly repre
sentative of the University and its in
terests appear several articles which
at least need comment. Especially
is this so willi reference to a certain
article appearing In "IJlxby's Retreat"
which seriously reflects on a new fra
ternity nnd fraternities in general.
In that article there is a reference
to jack pots and goodly sized beer
glasses. The Inquiry being as to how
these new fraternity men wi!! conduct
themselves when called upon to handle
the above mentioned articles.
The only possible inference to be
drawn is that any man as soon as he
joins a fraternity must necessarily
become proficient in the arts of gam
bling and become a drinker of some
sort. I do not know the writer or the
article in question but T do know that
what he would have people be'ieve Ih
an absolute falsehood and if lie does
not know it he certainly ought to.
Anyone who reads that article and
who has no other information an hand
will necessarily believe that- the frater
nity men of the University of Nebras
ka are a gambling, drinking set. It is
evidently the wish of the writer or
that screed to have such a belief be
come prevalent through theunlvcrslty
city and state and especially in the ac
credited high schools where the Hes
perian is circulated at University ex
pense. It Is d(f"k.ilt to billeve that unjoin
