Those coruhuskers seem to be well
trained in making the best of an op-
portunity. They have been trouncing
the Wolverines so long in their public
prints that they now appear to have
worked themselves into a state where
they honestly believe that Nebraska
beat Miichigan by a score of 30 to 0 at
tlie Very least.. They "won't have fig-
ures enough in the case to Print the
score by the time the winter is over
and when civilization moves out into
the wilds during the next decade they
will still be relating the famous vic-
Eight more days of this!
Any guesses on how many more

The attitude taken by "1913" in the
communication relative to the "refer-
endum" appearing in Sunday morn-
iig's Daily interests us. "It is evi-
dent," says our communicant, "that the
Daily oppops es the referendum." All of
this is net's to us. We haven't been
able to make up our minds as to what
we think about the referendum because

we have not yet been able to deter-
mine just what those advocating the
referendum mean by it, to just what
they wish to apply it, nor what means
they desire to use, to put it in opera-
tion. There seems to be about as many
ideas of what the referendum, as ap--
plied to university affairs, means, as
there are persons thinking about it,
The referendum.in its applications to
national and state political go ern-
ment has come to mean certain fairly
definite things but when it is trans-
planted to the campus it loses much of
As a theory we are most favorably
disposed toward the referendum. As
to its applications to campus affairs
we prefer not to express a definite
opinion as to its feasibility until We
learn just what is meant by it as a
campus institution. We pointed out
certain advantages of the idea and
some objections to it as they occurred
to us. We commended it to careful
study and consideration of the mom-
)ers of the university,
We remember a fight for direct vote
by the students in the election of their
representatives to the Board in Con-
trol of Athletics which the Daily as-
sisted in waging last spring only to run
into a brick wall in the form of the
Board of Regents. We do not know of
any matters of importance in the uni-
versity which are not either within
the final control of the Regents or
which the- Regents have delegated to
the faculty. We recollect that the
Student Council endeavored to exer-
cise authority in the matter of a class
election somewhat over a year ago
only to find a higher power in the
faculty which swept aside its decision.
We do not know what the friends of
the referendum expect to control by it
but we have not heard it suggested as
a means of final decision in relation
to any matter in which the student
body would have the slightest author-
ity. We can well express our true sen-
timents and wishes by referendum, but
what more can we do? The only trouble
with ap lying the arguments, relative
to the referendum in its national field,
to its campus applications is that in.
the nation the people are the source
of power while in the university all
power is vested in the Regents.
