C. E. TlNGLEY, Pres,
qjjir T might not be a bad idea for our local atletic asso
(3111 ciation to wake up a little and make preperations
for the inter-collegiate field day that will be held
sometime in June. There is no reason why we can
not capture most of the honors if we but try. Our
base ball team has always been the pride of the insti
tution and a terror to other colleges. Let us tiy to
win more honors in the national game. Let us put
our foot-ball club in running order and try bur luck
in new fields. Lsts be moving and see what may be
done when we try.
E understand that some of the electric light peo
ple were not pleased with the remarks about
them in the last Hesperian. Well so far as we know
they deserve all that was said about them. The idea
of discharging men without assigning any reason is
not fair, and looks very much as if the men lately
employed by the electric light company have been the
victims of a spirit of malice. We must insist that the
students deserve some recognization from the business
men of this city and the latter need take no offence
at the Hesperian because it sees fit to defend the
former when ever intrusion is made upon their rights.
MT is strange how many different cries the fratern
alli ity papers raise whenever the HEbPERiAN strikes
too close for comfort at the fraternity system. We
have been called sore-heads, liars, cranks and all such
pet names. But lately an editor of a frat paper struck
a new idea that we are prejudiced and promptly
several of the frat papers pat him on the back and
and seem to think that he has at length discovered
the cause of our hostility to the fraternity system.
Now it is really too bad that we are so prejudiced
and narrow minded as some frat papers would have
people believe. But if we have done any injustice
to the frats we are sorry. If we are prejudiced the
proper thing for those who think so is to show where
in we are prejudiced and not to be forever prating
about cranks etc., Show up the beauties of fraterni
ties in general and the advantages to be derived from
fraternities at the University of Nebraska in particu
lar or else cease your whining. We judge frats by
their actions and honestly believe to put it mildly
that they are considerable of a nuisance.
