DR. STEWART SAYS
Nebraska Head Coach Says
Games Can Help. in War
Lincoln, May 13. (Special.) The
continuation of athletics as a step in
military preparedness is advocated by
Dr. K. J. Stewart, head coach o( the
Vniversity of Nebraska, in a state
ment given out here today.
Dr. Stewart says it is a significant
feature that the allies have found ath
letics fo beneficial as to retain games
close behind ti.e fighting lines. He
points out that over sixty Nebraska
athletes have volunteered and have
been accepted on the record of their
physical fitness. Dr. Stewart feels
that it would be a mistake to aban
don the college sports except in the
minor branches, even, although new
teams must be built up by Missouri
Vallev schools. He says that while
the Kansas-Nebraska game next fall
may be played without a veteran in
the lineup and before a much smaller
crowd than customarily attends, the
benefits of athletics will still be se
cured. Summary of Situation.
After an extended review of the
subject, Dr. Stewart says:
"Summarizing the situation as it
applies itself to Nebraska university,
it can be said that the situation does
not demand the abandonment of in
tercollegiate sport, but when such a
condition arises, Nebraska's authori
ties will be the first to act.
"The war college authorities have
openly advised the retention of inter
"The economic situation demands
a continuance, even if on a smaller
scale, of intercollegiate contests.
"Statistics from every recruiting of
fice in a college community prove that
the college athlete is the first to en
list, the most desirable from a mili
tary point of view and that the elimi
nation of the machine which turns out
these types would be a real disaster
instead of a hindrance to the military.
Mean) Loss to Schoola.
"Abandonment of intercollegiate
competition because of the uncer
tainty of the future, because of the
loss of most of the best athletes in
school, or because of the gloomy
outlook in collegiate athletics, would
only reflect upon the ability of those
handling athletics to 'make good' In
the emergency caused by these dis
couragements and would be the "easy
road' always to be avoided.
"An finally it would take five years
after the reintroduction of intercol
legiate athletics before the same
standard of competition would result.

(Prom a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Neb., May 13. (Special.)
Scrutinizing a statement on his
desk, J. E. Davidson, assistant to the
president of the Omaha Electric
Light & Power company, directed
attention to a notation, "18 per cent."
"That," he explained, "represents
the increase of our operating ex
penses last month over the same
month s year ago. You will note that
the sales increased for the month was
for power current, due to the in
creased demands on industries gen
erally." Mr. Davidson entered into the
crux of his thought. He staled that
his conmanv. bv ' developing a
volume of business and diversity of
demands, expects to preclude the
necessity of increasing rates.
Coal Price Too High.
"We all know that prices of coal,
labor and materials have been going
up, and it would seem rather natura
and logical that the charge for elec
trical energy should likewise be ad
vanced. It is our big problem now
to increase our demand for current
that we may be able to offset the in
creased cost of production and be
able to maintain the present rates.
We feel we can do that. A maxi
mum of efficiency at the central sta
tion is beintf developed. We are in
stalling a new turbine of 15,000 kilo-
wat capacity. We are increasing our
coal storage capacity. We are in
creasing the uses of current. In short,
we are going to do all we can to pre
vent the necessity ot changing any ot
the existing rates.
Fuel Advance Enormous.
Mr. Davidson showed that within
the last sixty days the company's
coal bill has increased $150 per day
and he showed that during the last
year materials have been advanced
from 20 to 200 per cent. Ten per
cent of gross revenue is paid for
taxes of various kinds and the out
look, he said, is for increased tax

many a dollar spent
some other way.
