Another worthy project has fallen
through on account of lack of support
from the student body. After consid
erable effort on the part of the local
oratorical association, final arrange
ments were made with Minnesota for
what promised to be one of the most
interesting contests ever held in the
west. The Minnesota orators asked
that Lincoln entertain their men this
year as several important events were
already scheduled to be held in Minne
apolis. They were perfectly willing
to entertain in turn next year. After
"""caTotuUy.looldng over tho ground hero,
the management of the local associa
tion decided that it would be impossi
ble to have the contest in Lincoln and
was compelled to notify Minnesota to
that effect. A large number of con
testants appeared for the preliminary
contest, insuring an abundance of ma
terial. The trouble seemed to be en
tirely with the way the student body '
here supports such events. By the I
Ariel we learn that Minnesota is still
very desirous of seeing the plan started
In the west. Nebraska, as a whole, we I
believe is equally anxious and It is '
very probable that such a contest will i
be pulled of in Minneapolis next year.
Kansas and Missouri will be asked to

to a revision of our former statements.

You will find 4t worth while and what

As we have said before, have no mercy
The Idler was blowing rings of
smoko with the manager tno other
day when the subject of athletics came
up. It was only In a casual way at
first but pretty soon things began to
warm up. At tho end of about four
hours, three sacks of Duke's had dis
appeared and the manager was Just
ireachln for another nVikel to send
a boy after a fourth, wnen tho Idler
called a halt. It Is alright to talk ath
letics, but when It comes to ten grain
doses, its Iiko taking cod liver oil. As
our friend tho Dutchman used to say,
'Enuff is enuff but a lectio too much Is
shuste abute right." But maybe he
meant beer and not Duke's.
But say, lots of funny things do hap
pen about athletics. Its on the dead,
the manager says that on the average
ho has from ten to twenty-five fellows

base ball or foot ball game, wanting

insinuating that the fellows arc dead
heads. That would be rediculous. They
just want to get in for nothing. And
you wouldn't say a fellow, was a dead
head just 'cause he was broke and
wanted to see BHbb and hla Babies
And say, did you ever stop to think
about that athletic 'lection? Its a
corker. The Idler has it on pretty
good authority that the candidates are
in another combine. Four frat men are
said to have hooked up and then gath
ered in one non-frat. to nu out the
ticket. Now the Idler is no judge, but
he just wants to make a prophecy.
That combine, if it is a reality, is go
ing to have its throat cut, three arms
and a leg amputated (perhaps we had

letic management. Many students have
not been satisfied and have had no
hesitancy in saying as much. This is
the time to choose men who will do
the work properly. In spite of com
plaint, wo wish to tiiunk tho uilrjr.s
board for tho efforts they have put
forth. Wo believe that n majority of
the members have done 'everything in
their power for tno betterment of ath
letics in the university. A definite pol
icy has been outlined and overy effort
made to follow it up. In many ways,
success has been reached. In many
others the result is doubtful. On tho
whole venire better than we were a
year ago. N-o will get there sooner or
better say four limbs for propriety),
tho rest of it chopped into kindling
wood or mince meat or any old thing
and fed to tho chickens at the stato
farm. Now that is not becauso four of
the men belong to frats, and ono fol
low dosn't, but it is because all tho
fellows in school are tired of combine.
It reminds them nt a Blxby 'octopus'
or something else they don't know any
thing about. You juBt ought to got
out and talk to tho fellows, loti can't
find one in ten who Is willing to vote
for a fellow excopt on his merits. They
realize that tho athletic board is not
a horse show. A fellow has got to
have saw teeth, back bono and a cast
Iron head to stand for what ho gets
there. Ho has to get up and tell what
he thinks Is right and then livo up
to it, or get sat upon with both feet.
Tho Idler beneves tho students of
the university aro getting enough of i
the cat fight order of things. Tho fel
lows feel like going in and sawing
wood. Nebraska has men as good as
any that ever struck any state insti
tution and they can play foot ball and
base ball and run races and throw
hammers and all kinds of things and
they are going to do it or know the
reason why. The fellows supported a
loosing toot ball taom to tho very last
in tho fall. It stands to reason that
they would have supported a winning
one ten times better. They will do it
with base ball too, providing they are
convinced that no ono is trying to
play horse witn them. No one can
blame Nebraska students or any other
students for howling when they think
things are not going squarely. The
thing to be done is for every body to
come to the athletic election and make
'em go the right way. And tho Idler
will offer a fervent 'A-men.'
LAW ORATORICAL CONTEST.
Next Friday evening, May 12, the law
oratorical contest will take place in
the chapel. When the students of the
law college found that they had been
barred from entering the state oratori
cal contest, they organized a local as
sociation of their own with O. W.
Meier as president, N. C. Abbott, vice
president and C. O. French secretary.
Correspondence was carried on with
tho stato law colleges of Minneapolis,
Iowa, Missouri, and Kansas with the
view of establishing an interstate
league and favorable replies have been
received from each of these colleges.
The date was set for the local contest
and eight students have registered for
this contest A number of prominent
attorney's in tho city have subscribed
towards a prize fund, and quite a little
interest is being manifested in tho
nffnlr lnn Hppro will solect the
Judges for this contest from among
members of the bar of tho state.
