IfF the University of Nebraska is going into the
dJHL foot ball business in earnest, as now seems prob
able, it will be necessary to properly clothe the Uni
versity team. Canvas suits for the eleven would
cost about $35. We have no doubt that our liberal
minded faculty have large amounts of cash laid by
which they will be glad to donate in so worthy A
cause. Let some young man with pleasing address
and plenty of cheek pioceed to interview the faculty,
separately of courser, and use such arguments, either
mental or physical, as will produce the largest sum
total of subscription.

HE formation of a college foot ball team will
necessitate some substantial backing. The ath
letic association should be made more of power than
it has been. There should be more than two or
three meetings during the year. The collection of
dues should be enforced, and no one not a member
in good standing should be allowed to use the prop
erty of the association. 1 he association should have
the direction of all athletic affairs, the formation of
college teams in ttye various sports, the laying out of
grounds, etc. In all probability a room could be
had in Grant Memorial hall for the permanent home
of the association. Put the athletic association on a
firm basis, and college sports and field-day will as
sume a character they have never had here.
E publish in another column a communication
from a subscriber, criticising a department of
The Hesperian. This particular criticism would
perhaps have accomplished its object if only the
editor of the department criticised had read it. Its
publication is more for the purpose of inviting
further criticism of the paper. We do not promise
to heed every criticism. Tl at would be impossible,
But by a fuller knowledge of our readers' views and
expectations we may be able to make the paper more
acceptable. While admitting that "Current Com
ment," like all other departments of the paper, has
not been conducted in an ideal manner, ve must
dissent, to some extent, from ' our correspondent's
views. Any article to be valuable must reflect indi
viduality, Comments, on any subject, which do not
show forth opinion are watery. No one objects to
