ATHENIAN DEBATING CLUB.
The Athenians always remain faithful, notwithstanding the fact that many things occur in school life which conflict with their meetings. Every Saturday evening at 8 o'clock the members gather in their debating room, laying aside lighter pursuits and devoting their minds to such strenuous work as the “noble art of argument.”
The. debating work of the Athenian Society has kept up with exceptional enthusiasm thruout the year and many of the living questions of the day have been discussed for the mutual good of all.
(hi February 28 the debating club gave an open session in Music and Expression Hall, representing the United States Senate twenty years hence. A word of welcome and explanation of the nature of the Senate was given by Senator Elizabeth Henderson from Iowa, after which the members filed in, clad in the attire of the “New Woman.” Vice-President Miller called the Senate to order and the clerk. Senator Bogardus. called roll. Senator Loomis of New York then conducted the chapel exercises, reading the passage concerning Sampson and Delilah. A petition was then received from the “Men’s Suffrage Association" asking the restoration of their ancient rights and the privilege of proposing 011 leap year, 'l hc Senate moved that the gentlemen be allowed to present their petition in person, and Sergeant-at-Arms Pederson from Texas conducted Messrs. Reynolds, Mizera and Gibn-ey, attired in frills and bows, to the Senate rooms. They, with much timidness and nervousness, made pathetic appeals in behalf of their down-trodden brethren.
The motion was made and carried to refer their petition to the committee 011 useless Senate papers, and the weeping men were conducted from the room.
Tlie next in order of business was "A Memorial in the Form of a Resolution on Child Labor." presented by Senator McLean from Nebraska.

The Kindergarten department was regularly established in 1898. when Miss Lou E. Hosmer, a pupil of the world-renowned educator, Dr. Hailmann, was placed at its head. Under her able supervision the department has become one of the strongest and best organized in the .Nebraska State Normal. Froebcl's methods are carefully carried out by means of gifts, occupations and games. The purpose of the gifts is to change the child’s elements of destruction to those of construction and to give him ideas of number, form and color.
The hand is trained by means of the manual work, in the form of sewing, clay modeling, weaving, drawing and painting, all of which tend to develop the aesthetic sense, broaden the child's mind and develop originality.
The games consist of organized play, which develops the child physically. giving him grace, poise and self-control.
The singing of songs also plays an important part in the child’s education, creating early a love for rhythm and harmony.
The two years' course consists of actual practice in a well equipped, up-to-datc kindergarten of forty children, ranging in age from three to six years. Each Senior takes her turn of assuming the entire responsibility of the kindergarten, planning both her own work and that of six assistant teachers. In this way she becomes competent to assume charge of any kindergarten. The gradu-ates of the Nebraska State Normal Kindergarten department have been par-ticularly successful, many of whom arc holding excellent positions all over the United States.
The class of kjoS consists of Edna Beach, Helen Cone, Ruth Hamilton. Mattie Muni ford, Lida Rewey, Jessie Robinson and Grace Saylors.
