To the Editors of the Ncbraskan
Hesporinn Gentlemen: In your issue
of October 17th I note with surprise an
article by Mr. Frank M. Brovn, in
which he seems to find cause for com
plaint because fraternities are more
largely represented in the recent ap
pointments of the cadet battalion and
in the managements of1 foot ball and
base ball than he thinks they should
Now, Messrs. Editors, I do not wish
to be considered a champion of the fra
ternities in this matter, but as I have
been interested in observing the facts
as stated by Mr. Brown. I have drawn
certain conclusions as to the causes of,
and the remedy for, this evil, for evil
it is to a certain extent I am willing to
I cannot speak with so much cer
tainty regarding the cadet appoint
ments as with regard to athletics, but
I infer that the same causes are opera
When it Is taken into consideration
that out of an attendance in this uni
versity of above two thousand not
more than two or three hundred are
supporters of athletics in any sense,
and that most of these are fraternity
men and women, it is not to bo won
dered at that the positions of mana
gers, etc., should go to the fraternities.
There is too much apathy amongst the
student body concerning college affairs
generally. Whatever of time, energy
and enthusiasm is put into such af
fairs, it seems to me, is largely fur
nished by the fraternities. I should
like to see things different, and I be
lieve if there were evinced more of a
disposition to do, and less of a disposi
tion to find fault, we would very soon
eradicate such evils as the having a
small element in control of affairs.
There are at the present time non
fraternity men on the athletic board,
and also in the management of the foot
ball team; others can secure places for
themselves by taking hold with a vim
and helping to make a success of ath
letics. Not all of us can hope for a
substantial reward; but, after all, is it
not a sufficient reward to feel that by
our efforts we have helped to increase
the prestige of our university? Give
her your loyalty, no matter what the
specific object may be, and I am sure
you will have no cause for regrets.
Yours very sincerely,
H C. TdWNSEND,

To the Editors of the Nebraskan
Hosporlan: The discussion of fire pro
tection in the university has been
spoken of so many times that the sub
ject is a little tiresome, yet it is a fact
that nowhere else in Nebraska, or for
that matter in this section of the coun
try, can be found such a large and val
uable mass of property crowded to
gether in such a small space with so
1 ttle fire protection.
The huildlngs are stored with price
less reference books, many out of print
and absolutely lost forever if destroy
ed and valuable apparatus that if
handled roughly is destroyed.
It is true that only gas and electric
iy are used in all the buildings, which
reduces the danger of fire to the mini
mum; but who knows the meshes of
unseen wires that girt the various
buildings, and what defense can we
make without some apparatus should a
fire start from a crossed wire or a care
less experiment? The experience of
our city fire department with big fires
in the past should warn us that we can
not have too much self-protection.
I would suggest that the first appro
priation we ask the coming legislature
to make be for fire apparatus, and that
the military department have charge
of and organize a volunteer fire de
partment. There Is no time between
the opening and closing of the univer
sity gates when enough students are
not on the grounds to handle the lire
apparatus sufficiently to give all the
lyiildlngs ample protection. Then with
some training at stated periods wo
would be able to assist In protecting
this vast amount of property that the
utate has so generously placed at our
