Mr. Editor. A question of interest to studints, once
started, undergoes a thorough discussior by them before it is
dropped. It generally goes the rounds of the college papers
and is fairly worn out with long continued rasping. There
arc some questions, however, which seem to be perpetually
new; among these is that of athletics and college spirit. In
our own University the subject is one that the desperate efforts
of some of the upper classmen is elevating into prominence
and we doubt not that the beginning of a long and tedious
discussion is upon us. The writer, therefore, wishes to enter
his protest against the tone which the discussion has assumed.
It may be wounded pride that anyone should say that we arc
destitute of college spirit that rankles in his heart, but he
think it is not; he can conscientiously say that he has no such
Let us see. None deny that our primary object in coming
to college is to train, not the physical, but the mental man.
Some seem to expect to receive this training without extreme
hard work and complain of the length and volume of the course.
It may be true, as one of your honorable editors says, that the
students of the Nebraska State University do more work than
in some eastern colleges, but the implication that our course
reaches-higher cannot be made from the foregoing statement.
More efficient preparation enables eastern institutions to reach
a higher point than we reach with less labor than we have;
but with the rapidly increasing efficiency of our preparatory
schools, this pressure may be reasonably expected to cease in
no long time. Therefore, as the University must bring
up these lower schools, it seems to the writer that we should
possess our souls in patience and, with a determination to sus
tain our already high standard of scholarship, wait for the be
ginning of our course to come up, rather than tear down iU
later years. But this bears only indirectly on the point at
issue college spirit and athletics. It, however, disposes of
one of the main arguments of the agitators. Whether we
have any college spirit or not depends on what college spirit
is. We do not believe that students of Nebraska University
are deficient in love for their University, though it may not
be of so extravagant and unreasoning kind as that which par
tizan colleges inspire. Nor can state institutions ever inspire
so extreme a degree of partizan feeling as private institution.
We think on this account that we should not try to force feel
ing by introducing athletics, because they will bring them-.
selves in time and because they would consume time
which is, at present, sorely needed for other things. Athlet
ics are, after all, only a secondary matter, and should be pur-
suea merely as a relaxation irom siuuy, not as a business; it a
student needs exercise and does not take it he is himself the
loser and on him the responsibility rests- B.
