Added to the perennial scalp
hunting for coaches of losing teams,
the agitation at this season's close
strikes at both winner and losers
and is directed at the managemeht
of the sport in general.
At the University of Nebraska,
where the 1931 Big Six tit1 resides,
the student newspaper, The Daily
Nebraskan declared editorially "The
football team has become nothing
except an advertising t agency for
the University." The editorial pleads
for reform of inter-collegiate ath-
letics, principally football.
Concern over student apathy to-

LOWER J- PPIC
Tickets to Cost Seven Dollars
Instead of Ten as in
In spite of protests from Hugh
Baker, '33E, chairman of the com-
mittee, the price of tickets for the
J-Hop will be reduced to $7 by a
ruling made last night by the Stu-
dent Council. The council decided
that more proceeds would be gain-
ed by this lower price because more
tickets would be bought.
f In a statement to The Daily last
night Baker said that he doubted
whether any more tickets could be
sold at the lower price. In former
years, the cost of a ticket to this
affair has always been $10.
Compulsory class d u e s, which
would place a tax on every ballot
for class and all campus elections,

the council, was virtually defeated

It was also decided at the Coun-
