HIS is our book. lt is given in humble spirit. Our prayer has
been that, in the years to come, it may cheer that one, manly
enough to plod on, no matter how sorely beset by the forces of fateg
that one whose life, calm on the surface, has, like the placid sea,
hidden depths, where strange beings live, that one, who sometimes
owns that a human life is a fragile bit, that the human touch is the
nearest divineg that cold will power can not forever crush a heart
that's Warmg that even the flush of worldly fame can never repay
the loss of two dear friendsg that the memory of one sad face may
long rise to blast the hour of mirthg that blame may fall, and the
lips be closed, for a Word may seal our doom, and silence may un-
ravel the tangled webg that then, for the sake of kindred, oft must
not the word be said, and the ache at heart must never by the face
be told, for the faith must be that it's the darkest hour before it' s the
break of day. To that one on whom fortune so smiles, or the cares
of life so lightly sit, that darksome moments never come, and in his
sole self he finds cheer, these pages have little to give. That the
faults are many is freely owned. But we are kin of the human
kind and loyal to its frailties.

The history of the College of Law is so ably told by Professor
Charles A. Robbins in the Law Digest of 1897 that for the period
prior to that year we give it in his words:
"Tn the fall of 1888, some two dozen young men, who were
reading law in the offices of Lincoln lawyers, organized a class for
more systematic study and the trial of moot cases. This class inet
for a few weeks in the law offices' ot Lamb, Ricketts 6k Wfilson, over
the old Lancaster County bank, on Ioth street. Soon after the or-
ganization of the class the writer accepted an invitation to become its
leader and instructor. The place of meeting was changed to the
rooms of the Lincoln Business College, The class met two even-
ings in each week. Readings were assigned in some standard text-
book, and the regular class work was limited to a quiz upon the
subject matter of the reading.
The work of the class as a whole was not satisfactory. All the
advantages of law office study, so much vaunted by some lawyers
who know nothing of the better methods, were possessed by these
young men, supplemented by the regular assignment and discussion
of readingsg but their average progress was discouragingly slow
and uncertain. Class organization was too lax, recitations were too
tewg the study of the assigned readings could not be made compul-
sory. It ought to be said that a number of the young men appeared
to apply themselves diligently to the work and made satisfactory
progress. VVith the coming of summer heat -the work was sus-
Probably encouraged somewhat by the apparent success of that
class, and at the suggestion of Messrs. T. S. Allen and VV. F.
Schwind, Mr. Wfilliam Henry Smith, who had lately come to Lin-
coln from Philadelphia, organized, in the fall of 1889, a law class
which he called Central Law College. Good quarters were secured
in the Burr block. The printed announcement contained the names
of a very long list of lecturers including some of the most promi-
nent lawyers in the state. Some of these gentlemen, and notably
Judge XVebster and Mr. Wfilson, did deliver systematic courses of
In the number and variety of her courts, the extent and char-
acter of her libraries, the number and importance of her educa-
tional institutions, and in her central location, Lincoln possessed
decided advantages for the establishment of a law school, to which
these earlier efforts served to attract attention. Members of the
Lancaster county bar saw the opportunity and broached the sub-
ject to members of the general faculty of the State University and
board of regents. f '
In April, '91, a committee of the faculty consisting of Pro-
fessors Howard, Kingsley, Caldwell, Nicholson, and McMillan re-
ported in favor of the expediency of establishing a law department,
not neglecting to add that "the favorable inliuence of the b-ar will
doubtless prove a new source of strength to the University." Pro-
fessor Howard presented the report to the board of regents. Judge
I. R. VVebster addressed the board in favor of the proposed school.
The Lancaster County Bar association passed favorable resolutions
and appointed a committee to confer with the Chancellor and regents.
At the june meeting, 1891, the board of regents authorized the
Chancellor to confer with the bar committee upon the organization
of the school. At later meetings it provided for the salaries of a
dean and four lecturers, "employed" VVilliam Henry Smith as Dean,
appointed a large corps of lecturers, and authorized the Chancellor
to assign to the "Law College" the use of such rooms Nas might be
secured without interference with regular University work," and to
have printed a "small, extra sheet for the present catalogue."
The 'flaw facultyf, "until otherwise ordered,'1 consisted of:
'William H. Smith, Dean, james M. Wfoolworth, science of
jurisprudence: Joseph R. Wfebster, equity jurisprudenceg John C.
Cowin, constitutional law: Manoah B. Reese, real and personal
propertyg Samuel Maxwell, pleadings: Wfilliam H. Munger, private
rights and obligations g Genio M. Lambertson, criminal law, Henry
H. Wilson, evidence.
VV ith the exception of Mr. Cowin, the gentlemen accepted the
appointments. Mr. Munger lectured on the do-mestic relations and
Mr. Lambertson on interstate commerce. Mr. john C. Wfatson was
subsequently appointed lecturer on criminal law.
The following gentlemen were also invited to deliver lectures
"at such times and upon such subjects as might be determined upon,
but without compensation 2"

HS. I. Tuttle, S. B. Pound, N. S. Harwood, C. O. VVhedon,
T. M. Marquett, S. L. Geisthardt, A. R. Talbot, W. I. Bryan, all
of Lincoln, Eleazer W'akeley, john M. Thurston, W. R. Kelly,
H. I. Davis, all of Omaha, judge Broady, of Beatrice, S. W.
Osborne, of Blair, John B. Cessna, of Hastings, judge Post, of
Columbus, Judge VV. H. Morris, of Crete." A number of these
gentlemen delivered lectures before the school.
A very "small, extra sheetn announced the opening of the
school in October, 1891. The tuition was fixed at S30 a year. It
was increased to S45 in 1895. Fifty-two students registered the
first year, and twelve were graduated in june, 1892.
Classes met in the botany room in 'Nebraska Hall. Possibly
their presence there interfered "with regular University Work,"
since the next year the school sought quarters in the Burr block.
The original course of study prepared by Dean Smith covered
fairly well the Held of elementary law, but it was greatly lacking
in systematic arrangement, and unsuited to that orderly develop-
ment of legal principles so helpful to the student, and so necessary
to an understanding of the essential unity of our common law. It
is said that the actual performance was even more disorderly than
the printed program.
judge Reese, Mr. Wilso-11, and possibly other lecturers, as-
signed regular readings in standard text-books in connection with
their lectures. Indeed, early the first year, Mr. Vlfilson introduced
a resolution at a faculty meeting suggesting the adoption of this
method by all lecturers, but consideration of the resolution was
postponed. The Dean was a firm bfeliever in the efficiency of the
so-called lecture system. There was no case study in the proper
sense of the term. Text-books and cases were cited rather as au-
thorities to justify the conclusions of the lecturer than as the proper
subjects of careful study.
" Mastering what seemed the lawless science of our law,
That codeless myriad of precedent,
That Wilderness of single instances."
The results obtained were disappointing' to the friends of the
school. After much deliberation a committee consisting of Chan-
cellor Canheld and Regent Estabrook reported at the june, 1893,
meeting of the board of regents, that the "curriculum should be
simplified and so modihed as to give to each student a compara-
tively small number of topics at any one time," and that "the greater
part of the undergraduate course must be that of the recitationf,
"based very largely upon the use of text-books." Dean Smith re-
signed, not being 'fin accord with this method of instruction."
judge Reese succeeded to the deanship at the opening of the
next school year. Lecturers Wfilson, Webster, Munger, Maxwell,
and VVatson were retained. Judge Frank Irvine, Jacob Fawcett,
NN. XV. Giffen, judge H. Broady, and judge XV. H. Hastings
Qthe last two for one year onlyj were added to the corps of lec-
turers, and the writer was appointed instructor. The school was
brought back to the University campus, and the room in University
Hall now occupied by Steward Dales assigned to its use, These
quarters proving inadequate, the school Hlodgedi' the next year in
room 16 in the same building, and upon the completion of the library
building was allotted its present quarters.
The course of study was simplified and so rearranged that each
subject might, as far as possible, serve as a fitting preparation for
the next. The subjects of remedial law were grouped in the second
year. VV ith slight changes and some additions the course of study
then adopted is still followed. Probably future changes will consist'
in a more elaborate treatment of present topics rather than in sub-
stantial additions to the curriculum.
The method of instruction was changed. A modified form of
the so-called text-book method was adopted and is still used. On
some minor topics instruction is by lectures only. Some lecturers
combine the lecture and text-book metho-ds. The writer has gen-
erally combined the text-boolc and case study methods. The modern
practice courts have been substituted for the ancient and well-nigh
useless moot courts.
Upon the reorganization of the school in 1893, a graduate
course of instruction of one year was added, and in june, 1895,
the master's degree was conferred upon seven candidates. For
want of means to carry on the work properly, and because it was
found practicable to give much of the same instruction in the under-
graduate course, the graduate course was abandoned after the sec-
W. S. Summers and B. P. Good were appointed special lec-
turers in 1894, and Dr. I. L. Greene was appointed lecturer on
medical jurisprudence in I8Q7.H
The year of 1903-04 marked the beginning of a new period in
the history of the College of Law. judge Reese resigned at the close
of the school year, and Dr. Roscoe Pound was chosen as his suc-
cessor. A series of changes occurred at this time.
Largely owing to the efforts of Professors Robbins and Wil-
son, the period of study for admission to the bar was lengthened to
three years, with a resulting increase in the College of Law to the
same length of time. The text-book system has gradually changed
to the strictly case study method. This method, in a modilied form,
had been used for several years before by Professor Robbins, but
it remained for .Professor Cook to formally inaugurate the pure
system. It is used by him in all his classes. Professor XVilson still
uses the combined lecture and text-book plan. Dean Pound is an
advocate of the case system.
Wfith the appearance of Dr. Pound as dean came two other
noticeable changes for the better. For several years the quarters
on the first floor had been inadequate for the needs of the rapidly
growing school. This year the old chapel was remodeled, and the
law school comfortably installed therein. The library, which in 1893
occupied a corner of the general library building, now numbers over
four thousand reports and text-books, and promises to double itself
in the next few years.
Another radical change has been the installation of the present
complicated system of practice courts for the old farce of Umoot
courts." Under the present arrangement, a complete set of courts,
presided over by student judges, ranging from the "justice shopy'
to the supreme court, has been inaugurated, and each student is
required to try at least one case in each court.
From gratuitous lectures by charitably minded lawyers, the
system has changed to the regular academic form of paid instructors,
who devote their entire time and attention to the law school. Qui'
present faculty, consisting of Dean Pound, Professors Wfilson, Rob-
bins, Cook, and Mr. Ledwith, is equal in ability to any set of in-
structors in the middle iW'est and bids fair to place the College of
Law of the University of Nebraska on a par with the great schools
of the East. Their effect upon the students is marked. The old-
time motto of "work when you mustl' has given away to the newer
one of "work or Hunk."
Last, but not least, is the effect of the Law School upon the
state at large. In 1895, owing to its inliuence, the old system of
admission by motion in the district court was changed to examina-
tion by the Supreme Court, and in 1903 the term of study was
increased to three years. These two acts have probably reduced
over three-fourths the number of persons annually admitted to
practice, with the consequent raising of the general standard of
the legal profession in the state.
The outlook at the present writing was never better. VV ith
the few changes and adjustments yet to be made, the school will,
under its present leadership, take on a new life and a new indust1y

to say with pride in our later f
years, "I am a graduate of the Col

The year of 1903
-OL marked the beginning of a 1
rew period in the history of the College of Law
awhile we are Jfere
We are not egotisticalg far from it! VVe are only exponents
of the great virtue of truth. So when we calmly assure you, gentle
reader, that you are even now perusing the printed record of, per-
haps, the best all-round class that ever left the Law School, you
must bear in mind that we are simply telling you what cold candor
and justice to ourselves compel us to say. Pray lend us your ears.
lt was in the fall of 1902 that we first commenced work to-
gether and had our nrst political scrap. Although we are veterans
at the art now, that first melee is still fresh in the minds of most
of us. It was then that Pfeiffer made his first political appearance
and first propounded his parliamentary rules. It was there that
McReynolds' bell-metal voice first made itself known. It was there
that Shumann's forehead assumed its first frown. It was a memora-
ble time! The result of it all was the election of C. P. Craft as
president. And then came the calm, and we caught our breaths.
For the first time our attention was turned to worldly things,
and we heard the earnest voices of Dean Reese and Professor Rob-
bins come fioating down to us from somewhere in the distance, to
remind us that we were there for other purposes than practical
politics. That all happened long ago, when we were juniors, for
it has only been this year that the ignoble title of Freshman has
been applied in the Law School.
The first year slowly spread itself out before us, and as slowly
came to an end. But many and weighty were the things that hap-
pened in the process. To a few, the experiences of college life
were a new and untried field, but to the majority the paths had
been trodden plain by years of academic training. Some were then
-but not now-friendless. It took a year to get acquainted, and
another year to hnd out what really good fellows embryonic lawyers
are. How the ideas of some of us must have changed when Dean
Reese called us together and gave us our first fatherly talk. In-
stead of the harsh, stern old chancellors of the wood-cut, we learned
that after all lawyers and judges are but men, with manly feelings
and kind words as other men, and somehow we were glad to find
Witli the beginnings of the second and third terms Professors
Lobingier, VVilson, and Cook in turn found their opportunities to

make us work. And how we worked! Syllabi were ignored be-
cause we were told we should not read them. Wfe read the cases
then, every word, and if, perchance, we happened to run across one
a hundred and thirteen pages long, we only sighed and sailed in.
VVe knew our duty and we did it. And when Professor Lobingier
told us that we should know the cases well enough to discuss them
without notes, we simply philosophized that the way of the transf
gressor is hard-and learned them. In short, we did as we were
told. As for the present,-well, let's stick to the point. We are
not done with the juniors.
VVith the second semester came renewed political activity. I., K.
Milek was chosen class president, and we all had an opportunity
to severally contribute fifty cents toward a baseball team that lost
every game it played as gracefully as we lost our hard-earned half
dollars. But we are learning. This year when the annual hold-up
came, the students one and all "smole a smile of wondrous size"
and squinted their left eyes at the crest-fallen collector. And so
ended the first year.
The second found an entirely new regime. The venerable
judge was gone, and Dr. Roscoe Pound illed his place. We missed
our old dean, even as we honor our present one. Professor Lo-
bingier is also gone, but Professor Cook's work has been so in-
creased that we really are not so lonesome after all. The cases we
have always with us, donft you know.
The year opened with the usual amount of button-holing and
sweet smiles from the politicians, and an equal quantity of swelled
head for the rest, who suddenly found themselves possessed of
virtues they knew not of. Vxfhen the 'smoke of battle had cleared
away, the beaming face of E. P. Snaveley confronted the class and
Victory named him president.
' Early in October a subscription, endorsed by a unanimous
vote, was taken, and a cane presented to Judge Reese. The entire
class witnessed the presentation and cheered the touching response
of the ex-dean.
It ill behooves us to speak of the selection of the board of edi-
tors and managers of the Year Book. You, kind friends, are the
ones who may best say whether it was well done.
Late in the liTSt semester, the first court appointments were
made. The supreme court was composed of Messrs. Waltman,
Cowan, and Rees, with Knapp as clerk and official fee-taker.
Messrs. Armstrong and I. P. Hewitt presided over the district
courts with Towne as clerk. XfVe purposely refrain now and here-
after from mentioning the justices of the peace, for in spite of
much advertisement and reduced rates the class failed to recognize
their ability and had their marriages performed elsewhere. 'With
the opening of the first term of court came a judicious cultivation
of imposing gestures and piercing glances by the lawyers, and dig-
nified frowns by the judges. ln working one night, Hodge dis-
covered Cowan seated in the middle of the floor busily engaged in
clipping the hair from a fur rug. On being asked what he was
doing, he replied that he was only making a wig to wear on the
Cases were tried, won, and lost, and the new semester, result-
ing in the election of Mr. james as president, came on apace. The
second term of co-urt found Messrs. Shelburn, Lightner, and Sar-
gent sitting as the supreme court and Honnold as clerk. In the
district court were judges T. M. Hewitt and Monroe, Bald being
the official boodler.
The third term began with Messrs. Buchanan, Kirwan, and
Berkey on the wool sack, Hart, clerk, and Messrs. Craft and Samp-
son district judges, with Lambe clerk.
And so the year is ending, and we are about to leave. To say
that we are sorry would be to tell but half the truth. We are also
glad. Sorry because it is all over and because the associations of
the last two years will be broken. Glad because it is all over and
because we will have the opportunity to show ourselves to be men
in a world of men. It was ever thus. And so in parting, kind
friends, we ask you to watch us when we are through, and if, per-
chance, in future years you hear of us once again, pray remember
what we have said in the beginning and consider that it could
scarcely be avoided.

A bumper, boys, we drinlc to you
'Wfho in the heat and strife
Toiled manly through the boggy swamps
Vlfhere the Mauser song' was rife.
'Mid all the horrors of the held.
The scream of shot and shell,
The dying' groans of comrades brave,
The sights too sad to tell,
The toil and labored effort, boys,
The fevers of the camp,
The white-robed nurses of the ward,
The smoke and dust and damp-
They're nothing but a memory now-
Are scenes of other days,
Your duty calls to other helds,
To toil in peaceful ways.
And so a bumper, boys, we drink
That in this nobler cause
Your part will be to lead the van-
Uphold the nation's laws.

.Vhe 'Glass of 7905
The occasion that required a particular man or a peculiar com-
pany of men has never yet passed without that requirement being
fully met. It has been so in all history, and it is so at the present
in affairs of everyday life as well as in matters of greater moment.
Vtfhen the curriculum of the Nebraska Law School was enriched
and the course extended to three years, it was the common belief
that '05 would cause a break in the continuous stream of young
lawyers that the institution has poured out from year to year to
grace the legal profession, However, a do-zen men, not flunkers
from preceding classes, produced their credentials, stepped into the
vacant year, and organized themselves into the Junior class. They
claim never to have been Freshmen, although they perhaps used
as much midnight gas on common law as on trusts or corporations.
Gne feature of the little class was very commendable-the
harmony of the organization. Every difficulty was adjusted wisely
and peaceably, even to class elections. Football, basket-ball, or base-
ball men were not a disturbing element.
The juniors have not been a minor factor in spite of the fact
that you could count them on the fingers of your two hands. VV hen
the dean called for volunteers he usually heard from a Junior, when
Professor Robbins had a stock-in-trade case to spring, one that had
been decided in seventeen different ways in as many jurisdictions,
he looked about knowingly, smiled, shuffled out his cards, and
landed on a junior. And he expected the case to be decided right.
The lirst junior class of the Nebraska College of Law has
maintained its place, established a precedent, and effected its pur-
pose, and when it has been swallowed up by the whirl of a busier,
a more serious life, the office, the bar, the stump shall surely feel
the influence of our growing institution.

'Glass of 7906
Abbott, A. T.
Born at Grand Island, Neb., where he attended college and received
the degree of A. B. He kept books l'or various iirms until his hair
follicles became diseased from worry. He then abandoned accounts and
red ink and entered the College of Law as a Freshman in the spring
of 1904. A hard worker and deserving of success.
Bagley, James Thomas.
Ancestors from near Killarney Lakes. Born in Omaha and proud
of the opportunity to join the democratic majority ol' Sarpy county. The
board of directors and faculty of the Springfield high school retired him
with the class of '98. He has been a decided success as manager of the
Law baseball team. Occasionally he uses the library.
Barta, Frank A.
Born and grew in Knoxville, Neb. Attended Nebraska Normal
College, Wayne, Neb., and Highland Park College. Des Moines, Iowa. Has
the degree of B. S. Known to bleacher fiends as the mighty subguard.
Taught schoolg in discipline "moral suasion" was his hobby. Is built
on the Atlas plan. Lifts locomotives for exercise, and Was once caught
with the library stone under his arm. Housemoving by hand a specialty.
Beachley, William C.
Sigma Alpha Epsilon. Born in Meyersdale, Pa. Lives in Lincoln
and is a graduate of the Lincoln high school. Follows the profession of
a clerk. Is a product of Hunteris Y. M. C. A. debating squad. His as-
sociates are responsible for his pugnacious traits, for by nature he is
mild, docile, sweet-tempered. Under the oily, naive tutorship of the
even-tempered Robbins, he may regain his youthful equanimity and
modesty. Will make a success of law south of the Antarctic circle.
Beavers, Charles Chester.
Was born in the sovereign state of Iowa. He deems it superfluous
to mention the exact locality. However, he now is domiciled in South
Omaha, and in that place he will hang out his shingle. Having no
particular business, he drifted to the Uni Where as yet he has taken
no degree and Won no honor. Charles should make an excellent advocate:
he stands so erect and Will be able fearlessly to face the sternest judge.
Mr. Beavers is a member of Sigma Chi.
Becker, Arthur Fred.
Was born in Scribner, Neb., now lives in Bennington. Graduated
from the Scribner high school. Has a B. A. degree. Is serene, placid.
As far as any one knows does not contemplate matrimony, although he
expects to practice law and is a member of the Y. M.- C. A.
Beltzer, James E.
Born in Queen City, Mo., and drifted to Arapahoe, Neb., where he
attended high school. Later he entered Grand Island Business College,
and finally registered in the baseball course of the University. Energetic
and ambitious by nature, he iinds time outside of these absorbing duties
to attend lectures occasionally in the law course, where he is registered.
As a twirler, he won fame last year and expects additional laurels this
Borg, Charles T.
The big, brawny center of the Nebraska football line, distinguished
Peoria, Ill., as his birthplace, came to Looking Glass, Neb.g attended
Omaha high school and takes an A. B. in the University this year. He
was on the athletic board in '04, and as president of the Senior Academics
led the class in its fierce attack upon the Juniors this spring. Borg is
an active Palladian and has learned the arts of public address that he
expects to use later at the bar.
Cameron, J. R.
The distinguished looking young man among the Freshman Laws,
with a long, silken, well trained mustache. The dairyman has a large
account against him for cream delivered and used. He was in the
general science department before taking up law.
Chase, DeWitt Clinton. A
Was born on the banks of the romantic Platte in Sarpy county,
Neb. He says that he came to this earth for the purpose of keeping
Sarpy county in the democratic column. He believes in Jefferson, Jack-
son, and Bryan, and says that he always intends to vote the ticket
straight. When not playing truant, he attended Various institutions of
learning and finally concluded to take "bench work" at the U. of N. His
legal mind led him to study law, and he has concluded to specialize in
"Domestic Relations." He is a Maxwell in good standing.
Clark, James A.
From Craig high school through Fremont Normal he sped, plucking
honors on the way. Then back to his home town this keen-eyed youth
returned to become principal of the high school for three years. A
pugnacious desire to become a lawyer brought him to the U. of N.
Among the Freshman Laws he is known as an enthusiast and a student
through and through, and he goes by the name of "Sunny Jim." His
watch will tell why he Hnds it hard to keep away from Craig. "Yes,
of course," he will practice law, and of his success you may rest assured.
Sprang into existence at Filley, Neb., wl1e1'e he now lives. The
Filley high school and Vlfesleyan University he attended before coming
to the University Law School. It the experience of the ages counts for
anything, this somber-eyed son of Erin is destined for great things. Cin-
cinnatus was born on a farm, XVebster was raised there, Lincoln was a
horny-handed clodhopper, Bryan lives on agriculture. and Crocker, like-
wise comes from a sunny corn patch and the haunt of thistles and
pumpkin seeds. Great things! If not, why not?
Davidson, Roscoe B.
Born in Lincoln, Ill. Home town Tecumseh, Neb. Formerly
attended Grand Island College. Has an A. B. degree. Has the proud title
of Financial Agent for Tecumseh National Bank. As such, however. his
friends say, he acts only in the capacity of "receiver," He signs himself
as a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity and the Delian
Literary Society. Has hopes of becoming an advocate, and even now
there are indications of the judgeship lines in his countenance. Never
smiles below the eyes, which are fathomless, murky depths of unsoundetl
wisdom and deep, soulful purpose.
Day, V. A.
Claims Johnstown, Pa., as his place of residence. He was not at
home at the time of the flood or would have gone to the bottom, as he
is considered a heavy man in the Freshman Law class. He is a Wintei'
Day, short, but bright and pleasant, very reticent and unassuming. He is
noted for his ability to recall the names of cases long since forgotten by
his fellow class-men. He finished a high school and taught some time
in Pennsylvania. Sure, he will practice law and will be a success.
Eager, Earl O.
Born and bred in Lincoln. Attended Lincoln school and the State
University. Was on the Varsity football squad '00, '01, '03, because the
coach knew him to be eager. According to his own testimony his busi-
ness is "living easy," and whether he will practice law or not 'Kdependsf'
Genial, bland, eager, his beaming, expansive smile has Won him Sigma
Alpha Epsilon and many friends.
Faulkner, E. J.
Born in York, Neb. Moved to Lincoln. There attended Lincoln
high school and Lincoln Business College. Is a member of Sigma Alpha
Epsilon fraternity. Having in mind his law average, when asked what
degrees he held in the University, he replied with characteristic brevity,
H30 below." With nlial support, he expects to succeed before the bar.
Stray moments outside 'of his "social duties," he concedes to law classes.
A bold horseman, a knight errant, with an Apollo-like form, a Don
Quixote daring, with the abandon and a la bizarre of a Spanish admiral,
he fearlessly, recklessly, almost foolhardily, answers all legal questions
whether from Sir Pound, Sir Wilson, Sir Cook, or Sir Robbins.
Fisher, Jas. T.
Phi Delta Theta, Viking, Theta Nu Epsilon, Phi Delta Phi, and
chief waterboy for Phi Delta Theta baseball team. Was born in Hastings,
Neb. Before entering the University he attended Hastings high school
and State School of Mines at Golden, Col. If our country is in need of
good lawyers he says he will follow that profession "for the good of
Favinger, Hubert Franklin.
Born in Appleton, Wis. Thence emigrated to Roseland, Neb. A
graduate of Roseland high school. Says he is an expert salesman in a
general store. If famous for nothing else, he is remarkable in the posses-
sion of a rare combination in his name. Expecting to be an advocate,
his membership in the new Paulonian Debating League of the University
of Nebraska is a valuable incidental thereto. '
Gibson, Benj. J.
Tall and slender but of an athletic turn. A Hawkeye from Corning
where he did things in the high school besides teaching below. Since
coming to the U. of N. he has taken an active part in athletics, winning
second place in pole vault and fence vault. Was elected captain of
Freshman Law football team. Claims membership in Y. M. C. A. and
Union Society. The debating club is one of his favorite resorts on
Hall, A. L.
The good-natured Freshman who will talk to no one not in hearing
distance, unless the opportunity presents itself, lives in Naponee, Neb.,
although born in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, where he attended the high school
and the Mt. Pleasant College. He is the Alpha Tau Omega's greatest
grind. He will know whether he practices law or not immediately after
the equity exam.
Hardman, Harry NI.
Of Minden, Neb., was born in Arkansas City, Kan. He entered the
University as a graduate from the Kearney Military Academy. Is a
member of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity. More apt to be in the
library than the librarian. He bids fair to be a most successful lawyer,
but will look much like a boy until his hair turns color.
Harrison, P. J.
Too digniiied to hand in a pedigree. Silent, stealthy, subtle, deep,
sphinx-like, a master of diplomacy, practiced in finesse and the arts of
intrigue. A Delta Upsilon, an Innocent, and a functionary in the Chan-
cellor's oflice. Fitted for the mazy, tangled atmosphere of a Turkish
court. Would shine as the Miost High Grand Vizier of Haroun Alraschid.
Would be a success in the foreign ofiice of the Pinkerton staff or as
chief inspectionary of Alexieff's army corps. Gets his A. B. this year.
Evidently a sort of wandering minstrel. Born in Birmingham,
Iowa. Lives in Sheridan, Wyo., and received his high school training
at Fort Dodge, Iowa. Is a member of Delta Upsilon and Phi Delta Phi,
yet does not expect to practice law. As to just what relation he holds
with the great university which bears his name we are at present
unable to even hazard a guess.
Hupp, Glenn C.
Wfas born in Strawn, lll. He got his high school education at
McCook, Neb. At the University he has received many honors. He is
a member of Delta Tau Delta, Vikings, and Phi Delta Phi. He was
awarded a medal by the Lincoln tire department for rescuing two women
from a fire, and then from a position upon the waterwagon directing
the movements of the department, thereby saving a large part of the
business district from destruction. He expects to practice law among
the web-footed natives of Vlfashington.
Hutchinson, John W. -
First wept at Hastings, Iowa. Moved his parents to Corning so
he could be in the state oratorical contest, representing Corning in 1900.
A Hawkeye by birth, a druggist by profession, a lawyer by inclination.
A social genial youth whom his friends call "Buck" Member of the
Union society, Y. M. C. A., Maxwell club, and University Debating League.
Born at Tekamah, Neb., and was reared in Lincoln. Won distinc-
tion in Lincoln high school as a football player and a debater. Was
chosen as a member of the interstate squad this fall. Belongs to no Uni
organizations. There is hope, however, for he has a face like Beecher's,
a platform style like Bryan's, is crafty as a red fox, has a penchant for
coming late to torts and, too modest to recite when called upon, always
DHSSGS. He has not yet posted his theses upon the door of the freak
shop Ctrophy roomj.
Kurtz, N. Vilas. 1
Was born at Cortland, Neb., and there he now resides. While
attending school in that place he won a "Second Prize in Interstate
High School Debate." This is considered pretty good for a farmer. He
says "mayhem he will practice law. Unless the crops are poor indeed,
N. Vilas, you had better stay by the farm. Mr. Kurtz is a Delian,
Laird, Fred C.
Was born in Sidney, Iowa, but he comes here from Tabor. He
received his B. S. at Tabor College in the class of '03, He- is one
of the men that worry the Varsity in the fall and play on the Law
baseball team in the spring. He is debating with the Unions and will
prey upon the pocketbooks of advice-seeking wrongdoers at the earliest
Lundin, R. H.
Born in Lead, S. D,, where he has lived ever since. A graduate of
the Lead high school and attended the Uni of Nebraska. Tall, com-
manding, suave, magnetic, it is small wonder that he is first lieutenant
of Co. A, was master of ceremonies of the Pershing hop, and chairman
of the Junior prom. That he is a member of Delta Upsilon, Phi Delta
Phi, and Pershing Rifles speaks for his popularity. That he is still single
can be accounted for in no other way except that he is not matrimonially
IVI cComb, Chas.
This red-cheeked youth hails from Wilsonville, Neb., where he
practiced farming and went to school incidentally. The high school
of his home town sent him forth to seek the means with which to wield
The magic Wand of justice. Hence We find him here at the U. of N.
It is rumored that Professor Vifilson has an eye on him as a possibility
for his next office boy.
McDuffee, IVI. S.
Was born in Nodaway, Iowa, but you must not infer from that that
he is inclined to bow his head at the shrine of Morpheus more than is
necessary. His home address is York, Neb. His mental training was
received in part at Fremont Normal before taking law. Will try to
harmonize Y. M. C. A, work with the practice of law. "He has our
McLaughlin, James Ross.
Born in Blair, Neb. Lives in Missouri Valley, Iowa. Is a graduate
of the Missouri Valley public schools. Belongs to the Kappa Sigma.
Cook, Wilson, Robbins, and Pound willing, he will hang out his shingle.
Curly-haired, ruddy-complexioned, blue-gray-eyed, slight, dapper, clothes
cut a la mode, he is a favorite with the feminine persuasion,
Lebanon, Jewel county, Kan., is known only as the birthplace of
this gentleman. At an early age his parents moved to Kearney, Neb.,
where he attended school before entering the University. A four-year
high school course was completed in three years. In the near future
he hopes to try his learning in the law on the unsuspecting public.
Martin, T. M.
Harvard, Neb., claims the responsibility of being his birthplace and
home. Before attending the University he took a short course at Peru
Normal. He is looked up to as authority on "Secular" f?J labor by
the members of the Freshman Laws. He is the silver-tongued orator
of the Maxwells, and it is predicted that J. T. Milek will have in him
a worthy successor. Is pugnaciously inclined and is hard on the furni-
Mathers, A. N.
Born in Nebraska City. Lives now at Douglas, Neb. Formerly
attended Nebraska Wesleyan University. Belongs to Maxwell club.
In his list of University honors he boasts being a republican and having
a Senior for a room-mate. In self-defense this Senior has suppressed
his own name. Says his business is that of pedagogue, but whether
a shinologist or a shoeologist we are unable to determine from
Mattley, H. N.
Born and flourished in Ord, Neb. Spent some time in the Ord
high school, the Fremont Business College. and for two years has so-
journed in the University of Nebraska. Is now assiduously applying
himself to Freshman Law. There are law students and law students,
but only one Mattley. Grave misfortune and overwhelming disaster
have not marred his serene countenance, but his campaign for justice
of the peace blasted his political career. Is now a silent partner
Ccollectorj in the law firm of Mockett and Polk. Some think him an
ex-Harvard law dean whom enemies ot the law instructors have hired
to torment them during class hour with abstruse, finespun theories of
law. Some think him Blackstone resurrected. We incline to the latter
Meyer, Oscar Maxwell.
Born in Lincoln. Lives in Lincoln. Graduated from Lincoln high
school and.expects to die in Lincoln. Is a collector by trade and a
member ot Beta Theta Pi and Phi Delta Phi by choice. Members of
the class will understand his recitations when they know that he does
not expect to practice law. A desire to set him right before the class
constrains us to make this explanation, as his innate modesty prevents
his volunteering the information. To do him ample justice the com'
mittee feel in duty bound to state further that the said Oscar Maxwell
Meyer belongs to no other Meyers, Meier, or any other eier genus. He is
genus, specie, all alone by himself.
Merrill, L. B.
Was born in Miles City, Mont. His home is now in Bridger,
Mont. Before coming here he attended Uni of Washington, after gradu-
ating from Miles City high school. His fraternity is Alpha Tau Omega.
His thirst for knowledge of the law will certainly lead him to the bar.
Metz, P. N. W
Is a native of Odell, Ill., although he now hails from Sheridan,
Wyo., where the demand for lawyers is always great. There he expects
to strike terror to the hearts of the guilty. He is an active member
of the Debating League and an Alpha Tau Omega. Also a member of
the Law School crossiire question department.
Nlohrman, Chas. A.
First saw the light of day at Syracuse, Neb. His tender years he
passed in Geneva, Neb., attending there the public schools, Will be an
A. B., '04, if he graduates. Cast in a heroic mold, he has a military
bearing and, better still, a military record, i. e., captain of Co. B,
University cadets, first lieutenant Pershing Rifles, with scars and other
insignia of skirmishes too numerous to mention. Is contemporaneous
in military fame with Burdette Granville Lewis and his excellency Cap-
tain Caution Chase. With the advent of peace he may lay aside the
sword and take subpoenaes, judgments, and licenses. Is a Sigma Chi
and was president of the Freshman class second semester.
Niclony, James R.
A member of the Alpha Tau Omega and Theta Nu Epsilon fra-
ternities, baseball umpire, and the most envied student of the University
because of his automobile. Was born in South Omaha, Neb. Humboldt
is his home town. If living easy and the practice of law will harmonize,
he will be numbered among the practitioners. An athlete by nature,
as his lithe form and baseball record testify. The high jump, pole vault,
and hundred yard dash are his long suits. Says his Uni honors are too
numerous to mention.
O'Gara, P. J. -
Has no secret except his nationality. On this point, despite
philological and geneological investigation, he has baffled all inquirers.
He claims a farm in Cedar county, Nebraska, as his birthplace, and the
Nebraska Normal, the Uni of New Mexico, and the Uni of Nebraska as
places he has visited. Few men have had a more variegated career
than this son of Erin, who has on various occasions taught school, done
expert accounting, has been deputy county clerk and county treasurer
of his own county. With the timidity and modesty usual in his kind,
he insists, to those who are not in his classes, that he never flunked in
exams, and being a member of the Union Literary Society he expects
some day to practice law. Lack of oratorical power and fluency of
speech his friends fear will hamper him. For this reason he was elected
president of his class.
In whose veins flows the blood of the ancient Vikings, came to
America from Sweden. Learning that genius, enterprise, and avoirdu-
pois, mostly avoirdupois, were wanting at Emerson, Neb., he located there.
After absorbing all the knowledge in and about Emerson, he came to the
Uni to "corner" all the "legal lore? He is a farmer by profession, is
an authority on how to drive stubborn mules without using profanity,
and no doubt will succeed at the bar. He is a Maxwell.
Quick, Frank P.
Claims Lincoln as his place of birth and his home town. Also
a graduate of Lincoln high school. Formerly attended the Michigan
Military Academy. Belongs to Beta Theta Pi fraternity. In answer to
the query whether he expects to practice law he says "doubtful," Very
likely he can tell more definitely later in the semester. Is paradoxical,
for he is always late to class. His tailor is unkind to him. From his
appearance he seems to have taken life too seriously. He is already
gray and creased. At least his trousers are. Is said to have made all
his money as a fashion plate model.
Rathburn, Merle C.
Better known as Minnie the smiling Freshman, is a native of
Sycamore, Ill., although his home town, he claims, is Lincoln. He is a
Phi Kappa Psi. Upon his young shoulders is the burden of encour-
aging the Freshmen to be dignided and to get their lessons, and he always
conducts himself as an example. He has no desire to have C. J. written
after his name.
Rolfson, C. IVI.
You would never guess this man to be a deep thinker until you
hear him speak, He claims WiSH91', Neb., as his place of birth and
present home, as well as the place in which he expects to live and die.
So great was his precocity as a child that his mind runneth not back to
the time when he could not read. Keen, cool, sagacious, verily a sage
is he, and the chances are there will be some trembling at the bar when
he trims his sails for sea. CThis English is mixed, but Rolfson will

Preparatory work done largely on a ranch. His Uni honors all latent or
mere potentialities. Expects to practice law until elected president-of
the Maxwell club.
Smead, H. R.
I-Iails from Lead, S. D., and was born in Central City of the same
state. He learned to walk the straight and narrow path in the Lead
high school and Northwestern Military Academy before he became a
bookworru in the Law School. I-Ie's another representative of the Delta
Upsilon in this department. Studying law for the love of knowledgeg
not to practice.
Speer, Jeptha P.
We do not know where he came from, presumably from primeval
chaos. His education was acquired in that broad university, the school of
experience. His elevation has been rapid-a farmer in Iowa, a railroad
fireman in Montana, an engineer in Old Mexico, and, last but not least,
an embryo lawyer. He belongs to no organization save Kappa Sigma,
but believes in the brotherhood of man. Also believes that Carrie Nation
is the consummate genius of this or any other age. He will practice
Stratton, A. J.
A. J. Stratton hails from Wahoo, where he passed his boyhood
days. He is a member of Sigma Chi, Theta Nu Epsilon, and Phi Delta
Phi. Although well known about the University he is not familiar to
many Freshman Law students, but is always willing to get acquainted.
ls well known in athletic circles, having played second base on Sigma
Chi baseball team with unusual ability. To his practice of law the
faculty look forward with interest.
Tillrnan, R. H.
Began existence in Clifton City, Cooper county, Mo. He spent
his boyhood days along the banks of the Laramie river and later set-
tled with his parents at Ragan, Neb. A graduate of the Minden high
school, and hopes to be admitted to the bar with the class of '06. While
a Missourian by birth he nevertheless possesses the snap and enthusiasm
of a true Nebraskan. He declares he is acquainted. with no one in
South Carolina. A Maxwell in good standing and also popular in the
ranks of the Union society.
Van Burgh, James Lloyd.
Hails from Hickman, Neb., where he was born. Expects some
day to graduate from the University. Says his business is that of a
student. Is proud to be a first-baseman on the Sigma Chi baseball
team. With the indulgence of Professors Wilson, Pound, and Robbins
he hopes to get a degree. He also relies much upon his innocent,
infantile appearance, which has already won him membership in Sigma
Chi, Vikings, and Phi Delta Phi. "Blessings on thee, barefoot boy with
cheeks of tan." .

The august subject of this biography is a distinguished' citizen of
Lincoln, Neb. He hails from St. Louis, and while very modest as to
his accomplishments as a vocalist, can sing "Under the Anheuser-Busch"

alleges that he had no connection with the postal frauds. He is a
lawyer and an honest man. f
Williams, Everett L.
Is from Sparta, Wis., the town of his birth. He is laconic. He

The Maxwell club was first organized in 1893, at the sugges-
tion of Dr. Canfield, then Chancellor of the University, in an ad-
dress before the College of Law. The name of the club was chosen
in honor of Judge Maxwell, who was then chief justice of the su-
preme court, and also a member of the College of Law faculty.
The object of the organization as set forth in the preamble of
the first constitution was the "cultivation of impromptu speaking,
of an argumentative style, both in composition and delivery." The
by-laws made no restriction as to membership, but declared "all
students of the College of Law are members ot this clubfl
The club has never failed since its organization to supply its
quota of representatives in the intercollegiate debates with Colorado,
Kansas, and Missouri. Four places of the debating teams of 1904
are filled by Maxwells. Wfith L. C. Lightner against Kansas, and
G. A. Lee and C. McReynolcls against TVashington College, suc-
cess is assured.

The Senior Law football team did not have suflicient oppor-
tunity to exhibit its real ability, inasmuch as but one game was
played. Yet it was the unanimous opinion of the students of the
Law College that the Senior eleven was the best class aggregation
in the University. :Xn unfortunate complication arising over the
recognition to be accorded the Laws in the interclass athletic affairs
is responsible for the small number of games played. This difficulty
was precipitated solely by the discreditable conduct of one or two
Senior Academics, supported by a few under-classmen, not broad-
minded enough as yet to comprehend the fact that the ancient hos-
tility between the Laws and Academics had long since been con-
demned and abandoned by every one save one Senior Academic

The football experience of some of the members of the team
may be of interest:
NEILSEN, who was chosen captain, but left early in the season
to coach a winning team at Midland College, Kansas, received his
first training in the Omaha high school. In 1900 he played right
half on the Varsity team.
HAZEN, who was elected captain on Neilsen's departure, nlled
the position of half-back at Dixon, Ill. In 1903 he was substitute
half-back on the Varsity team.
BAKER had his training at the Fremont Normal, where he
played right tackle for one season.
SNAVELEY, LIGI-ITNER, S1-IELBURN, and Swann were new men,
but did creditable work.
TQONOP from Wisconsin has a full record of high school and
college football. He was right tackle for the Wfisconsin State Nor-
mal in IQOO, coach of the Kewanee high school for two years, and
right tackle for the Tigers in IQO2.
VVALTMAN had his early training at the Creston high school.
He made his reputation at Tabor College, Iowa, by two years
splendid work at left tackle.

After winning a decisive victory over the Freshman Law team,
despite the fact that in the latter's personnel were tivo Varsity team
men, the Seniors concluded that they had good grounds on which
to base the expectation of winning the University interclass cham-
pionship. It was at this juncture that the embroglio, to which we
have already adverted, occurred. Neither the challenge appearing
in the Ncbrasfmn nor individual efforts were of avail in arranging
a game with the Academics.
In View of the status of affairs, the Senior Laws formally
claimed the interclass championship.

The initial game of the Senior basket-ball team was with the
NfVesleyan University team. It was an exciting game, characterized
by good guarding and block plays on both sides. The Laws were
worsted, the final score being eight to twelve. Two practice games
followed, with the Senior Academics. The two teams appeared to
be evenly matched. A game with the junior Academics resulted in
a tie score, but fortune favored the Laws in the toss of a coin.
Two of the three games scheduled with the Freshmen Laws
were played, the latter proving to be cheerful losers. The score in
the first game was twenty to six and in the second nineteen to eight.
The closing contest of the season was with the Douglas Castle team
of the Royal Highlanders. The latter had a number of strong
individual players. Team work combined with speedy playing won
a decisive victory for the Senior Laws-score, twenty-seven to eight.
This made the record for the team as follows: Games played, iiveg

team was seriously handicapped by lack of time as well as facilities
for practice, the team lined up for the first game with the Senior
Laws as opponents. A number of the Freshman players were
protested on various grounds, but none of them were removed.
The Seniors kicked off to Myers who fumbled, the Seniors
securing possession of the ball and carrying it over the line for
the first and only score. Hazen failed to kick goal. Score: Seniors,

honors were so even that both teams have claimed the day. The
Freshmen base their claims on the fact that they were on the point
of scoring in the irst half when time was called. The Freshman

The Freshman Law basket-ball team labored under a serious
handicap, viz., the lateness of the season before efforts were made
to rind material for a team, and institute practice work. But two
games were played, and both of these were with the Senior Laws.
While the Seniors were victorious, yet the Freshmen found con-
solation in the fact that they had organized the first team that ever
represented the Freshman Laws. They were also gratified by dis-
covering that they had a number of players who exhibited pro-mises
of merit. The following constituted the personnel of the team:
Bickford, Kurtz, Becker, Hutchinson, Laird, Hall, Gibson Cman-
agerj, and Mathers Qcaptainj.
if word of :fdviee bq Qean Sbound
Lord Eldon, when applied to for advice by a father who had
two sons, one sharp and quick, the other slow but painstaking, told
him to make a lawyer of the latter. "I was never anything myself,"
he added, "but a plodderf' Although we may believe that his lord-
ship's estimate of his abilities was too modest. it must be conceded
that patient thoroughness was one of the chief causes of his great
success in the profession. Perhaps in no other calling will patient
and persistent hard work achieve more than in the law. Not only
will hard work compensate for many fleliciencies, but even con-
siderable abilities will not lead one far without it. Hence, I should
say, first of all, don't be afraid of hard work. The beginner can
not be too careful in everything that he does. If he learns the
lawyer-like method first, he can determine later in his professional
life what may be omitted or relaxed without harm.
Don't think there will be nothing for you to do in the years
you may be obliged to wait for business. Gnly by spending that
time of waiting properly will you be enabled to do, and hence to
keep, the business when it comes. For one thing, if you can find
the time, read the reports of the state in which you are practicing.
Don't wait till a case arises and then rush for a digest. Know what
is in the reports. The older lawyers, who have tried or argued the
cases in the reports or referred to them repeatedly, have a great
advantage of you here, but if they have more experience and a
larger acquaintance with the reported decisions, you will have more
tirne. And you will be surprised to find how much experience may
be neutralized by the surplus of time and greater capacity for work
a young man has to throw into the scale. If you read the reports
of your state carefully, volume by volume, you will in the end
economize this time, which is a young lawyer's chief asset. In
doing this you need not become what is called a "case lawyer." I
am inclined to think the real case lawyer is he who knows so little
of the cases that he is frightened at superficial analogies in the re-
ports and in terror of the "case on all fours." There is no danger
that a lawyer who really knows the cases will become a slave to
them. I-Ie is their master. Moreover, those who talk loudest about
principles sometimes do it to cloak ignorance of the law. The
principles with which you will be concerned immediately are those
by which the courts in your jurisdiction decide cases. Those prin-
ciples must be deduced from the reports.
Don't despise or affect to despise the clerical details of the
lawyer's business. Learn how costs are taxed, and go over the
statutory tariff of fees and costs. Learn what the various dockets
are and how to handle them. Make yourself familiar with the books
of the register of deeds or recorder and get the knack of examining
them with assurance and dispatch. It does not follow that you will
turn into a drudge or a clerk. VVhen you have something better
to do, you may leave these details to others, But the ability to
do such work for yourself when necessary will always be valuable.
Ask no 'one's advice what to do-. Dig out the proper practice,
the proper tactics, the proper form, for yourself. You will not
be able to argue to a court from the off-hand suggestion of one of
your elders, and his suggestion may sometimes be worth just what
is paid for it. Self help is not merely the best helpg it is the only
safe help. I do not mean that anyone will be likely to mislead you
intentionally. But unless he investigates more or less, the person
you consult may not know as much about the points that are
troubling you as you suppose, and the time you will have to spend
in verifying his information would be spent much better in inform-
ing yourself. There is no greater nuisance than the man who
discusses all his cases with his colleagues at the bar and takes a
sort of referendum before going to work for himself.
Don't be afraid. It was the boast of a great lawyer, at the
close of a long career at the bar, that he had never shrunk from
a fair encounter with his elders nor bullied his juniors. Litigation
is more or less a battle, and there is no quarter for those who are
too weak to stand up and take blows. But a good case, well pre-
pared, is an entrenchment behind which you may stand with confi-
dence against anyone. It is no disgrace to be beaten by your seniors
in the profession 3 and, if you prepare thoroughly and go in to win,
you may not be beaten. If you are beaten, I would refer you to the
person who said he would rather any day be knocked down by a
man who had blood than picked up by one who hadn't.
While you must work long and hard and unremittingly, don't
become a "legal monk." There are two things to be done-to get
business, and to do it. Neither should be neglected unduly. Doing
business properly is one good way to get more. A sound, well-
directed activity in the community is another. The young lawyer
must steer a middle course between complete immersion in the most
jealous mistress among professions and over-distraction into politics,
society, fraternal organizations, and non-professional business.
Again, a middle course must he steered between over-devotion
to the books and excess of attention to advocacy. Don't fall into the
error of depreciating either branch of the profession. lt is folly
to make light of the book lawyer who is master of the law and
can draw briefs and pleadings with a sure hand. lt is no less
folly to look down on the trial lawyer who persuadcs or convinces
juries and obtains verdicts. Probably the beginner is likely to
attribute too much importance to advocacy, the older practitioner
to admire the book lawyer unduly. Speaking to beginners, then,
I would say, by all means strive to be good trial lawyers, but do not
forget that to be such you must be good lawyers. Lord Erskine
once said: KNO man can be a great advocate who is no lawyer,
The thing is impossiblefi If the legal foundation is wanting, no
amount of skill in the trial of a case can prevail. Examination
and cross-examination are ineffectual unless the examiner knows
fully and accurately what the law requires him to prove.
Finally, don't neglect general reading. Chancellor Kent made
himself master of the Roman law and read assidnously in Greek,
Latin, and French, as well as in English literature, while at the
bar. It is not to be expected that any one less than a Kent could
do what he did. But to know the law and nothing else is not to
know the law. The object of law is the administration of justice.
Law is a body of principles designed to adjust the conflicting activ-
ities of men. It is not an end, but a means. To lose sight of and
touch with men and live only in the law must be in the end to
produce a pedant, not a lawyer.
EDWARD ALSWORTH ROSS, PH. D
PROFESSOR OF SOCIOLOGY
if Efoeiologisfs word to the Zloung idlllllel'
No man can be a good lawyer who is only a lawyer. The
legal profession exists not to fill your purse but to serve society.
But society moves, so that the right of yesterday is the wrong of
to-morrow. The swifter the social evolution the more the lawyer
is in danger of becoming "a conservator of old abuses? The lavv
ought to change, and its true line of movement is ascertained, not
by poring over precedent, but by studying the shiftings of social
need. No one is fit to interpret law, much less make it, who does
not, by means of economic, political, and social studies, keep abreast
of his time.
Never can one play a man's part save by standing out against
the madness of the hour. Here and now that madness is greed,
and therefore it behooves you, if you love the standards of your
profession, to be something of a philosopher. Our age needs men
of the Cato type. Finer than any luxury that money can buy is
the luxury of despising money. Give your labor for lucre, but not
your self-respect, your personality, your good repute.
Go into politics, but not until you have a competence and can
afford to light for nothing. Some of the vilest politics of to-day is
chargeable to good men whose livelihood has come to be bound up
with getting or keeping a public office. W7 hen the bread and butter
of one's family is at stake, scruples are cast to the Winds. The
redemption of politics will come about through men who dare to
lose a nomination or an election, men who are content to stay outside
and prod those who draw the salaries.
VVith the extinction of the buffalo and the grizzly the big-
game hunting in this country will soon be confined to rascals and
boodlers. This, however, is a noble sport, and no one is so it for
it as the lawyer who has won a good foothold in his profession.
The public will continue to look to the bar for leaders in its fight
against political evil, and if you lead in some successful assault
on corruption you will taste at once the satisfaction of unselfish
service and the exhilaration of the rarest of sports.

The legal fraternity of Phi Delta Phi owes its being largely to
the efforts of judge Cooley of Michigan. The fraternity had its
inception at Ann Arbor in 1869. Since then it has grown, until
at present it has a strong chapter in every law school of note in the
United States. Its members have occupied the most prominent
places both at the bar and on the bench, and the number of them
in the public eye is legion. lt is significant that of the nine judges
of the United States Supreme Court six are members of the Phi
Delta Phi. The Lincoln chapter was given its charter in 1895. lt
has a total enrolment of 144, of whom 23 are active at present.
The members of the local chapter have been uniformly of high
scholarship and have been selected from year to year because of the
character of their work as well as because of Congeniality. Lincoln
chapter is in a very prosperous condition this year, having estab-
lished itself in pleasant rooms in the Montgomery block, where it
has acquired, through the kindness of faculty and alumni members.
quite a legal library. A movement is now on foot to have a house
hereafter where the members may live and be mutually helpful and
congenial in their legal studies. All of the law faculty are members
of Phi Delta Phi and have been very willing to help the fraternity
in its aims and purposes.

Should you ask me, who these people
Who these dignified old Seniors,
Who these graduating lawyers,
VVho appear in reproduction,
In a faithful 1'ep1'ofluction,
In the Book, the College Year Book?
I should answer, I should tell you
They are men of many places,
Many names and many nations.
There are very many of themg
Many more than I can mention.
I should answer. I should tell you
Just as I myself was answered,
When I asked this self-same question.
In this student population
On the campus of the Uni,
In the halls of the Main building
Wanders one well-known to lawyers,
One well-known among the students.
One well-known among the doctors.
Only after night has fallen
And the weary student slumbers,
And his books are all forgotten,
When the quiet of the midnight
Settles on the Uni campus,
Only then this being wanders
Through the halls of the Main building
In and out the Law School portals.
Coke is his renowned cognomen.
Coke, of common law the keenest,
Known of all as its exponent.
From the picture in Pound's oflice '
He emerges and will converse
And of him I asked this question,
Who these famous Law School students?
Then he mildly smiled and answered,
Answered long and told me ot them,
Of the ones he best remembered,
Of the ones he most encountered.
Told me of these noble Seniors,
Of these graduating lawyers,
Who have struggled through their cases,
Who have suffered many troubles,
Who have burned the midnight lampwick,
Who have ground and dug and labored,
fr ff-s AWN
K' L fy
That they might obtain a sheepskin,
That they might hang out a shingle.
Ye who on the Uni campus
Have an interest in the Law School,
Have an interest in the students
And especially the Seniors,
Listen to these tales about them,
Told me by this famous spirit,
For he answered long and fully
Of the ones he best remembered,
Of the ones he most encountered.
"When the lectures are in session,
When the discourse is progressing,
Wlien with gentle, peaceful breathing
Roth and Righter sink in slumber,
Then I slowly look about me,
Look upon the men attending.
'fThere is Allen-ever Ernest,
Never earnest in his actions,
Never earnest in his talking,
Never known to work his cases,
Famed by last year's red Sombrero,
Loved and longed for by the ladies.
"There is Armstrong with the ringlets
Where the brush has never bristled,
Where the comb's teeth never trampled,
District judge in Senior Law court,
One who puffs a pipe of briar
Of diminutive construction
With the greatest satisfaction.
"From the Black Hills of Dakota,
Famed for jollying and joshing,
For his fondness for things foolish,
For his knowledge of-well, nothing-
For his worship for the Wyer,
Comes Bump Campbell-chronic flunker.
"There are, too, the boon companions,
Never seen without each other,
Corlett, from fair Colorado,
Alter from a place called Alma,
Both of them are only youngsters,
So I won't say much about them
That in after life might hurt them,
Or prevent them from reforming-
Those two iirm and strong bound comrades
'fThen there are the politicians,
Many naught-four politicians,
One among them is McReynolds,
With his voice of sharp staccato,
With his eyes melodramatic,
And another one is Snaveley,
Little, round and fat in body,
Sleek and polished in appearance.
Both are famous politicians.
"There is the police court lawyer.
Sward, and of the court of justice,
Culver-both of these in make-up
Join allusions to the poets,
With pugnacity ferocious,
Each in his respective law court.
Each in his respective manner.
"Shall I tell you of the bluffers?
Those who tell the things they know, not
Who recite the things they've read not,
With a weight of self-assurance,
Vifith a power of self-conviction?
In this number comes Squire Milekg
In this number sober Blezekg
Adam Hess, unless he's slufnng,
Adam Hess so slow and sleepy,
Slower than the slowest tortoise,
Slow in speech as well as motion,
Sleepier than any other.
"Here is Watkins of the bluffers,
Many think he is the greatest,
Many think he is the bravest,
Many times in constant bluinng,
He will wildly reach for language
Throw the threads of thought together,
Snarl them with the utmost vigor,
Snatch a Verb he sees beside him,
Seize an adjective at random,
And present unto the doctors
All these words in rapid order,
Thinking they can understand them.
"Here is Pfeiffer, whose deep basso
Rolls and rumbles when he speaketh,
And the deep rebounding echo
Answers back when he has told you,
He is proud he comes from Tabor,
Proud because it's where he comes. from,
Proud he's in the Uni chorus, A
Where, amidst the girls' shrill twitter,
He sends forth enchanting music,
One man's voice amongst the maidensi

"No1' must I forget to tell you
Of the orator amongst them,
Orator of Platte's broad Waters,
From whose lips the streams of language
Ooze just like the Platte's brown waters
As they slowly glide on downward
O'er its shallow sandy bottom,
Thus do Shnrnan's famous speeches
Undulate throughout the class-room,
Yet he does not see with keenness,
And has no appreciation
Of the way things are in creation
And their everlasting fitness.
L'Then there is old Grandpa Whited
With his face interrogative,
With his voice so cracked and piping.
He can ask more crazy questions
In a minute than another,
Any other one could think of,
He can fire them with such swiftness
That the Hrst bounds back unanswered
Not until the last has left him.
"From this end of life's long ladder
Let us leap down to the other,
Till We tell you of the baby,
Wellensick, as are most babies,
VVellensick, as he is always.
One Who, like all other toddlers,
Runs about in evidence
Till, perchance, you think you need him,
Then is when he's never present.
'There is Charlie Knapp-the knocker-
Who has such a monstrous hammer,
Not another one could hold it
Yet with ease Charles Tyler wields it
And they say that he plays tennis,
Sois to knock the balls while knocking
Knock the balls with heavy racket.
"Heim is one Who's short in stature,
Long in step, and slack on humor,
Very positive in manner
And he wears a frown forever.
"Salisbury, sober, serious,
Loves his pipe with deep affection,
One who, when the clay is over,
And his faithful work is ended,
Likes to mingle with his fellows,
Likes to enter conversation,
Likes to have it reminiscent.
'fSargent is a steady member
Of this class that's graduatingg
He has plodded through the college
In a stern and stolid manner,
In a dogged faithful fashion,
But his thoughts are oft poetic
When he doesn't have to studyg
And they say that thatts one reason
Why the Union ladies love him,
Why he's popular among them,
"Theres the digniiied Buchanan-
Dignifled and military.
In his looks and in his actions
And on heights of lofty judgment,
Deep in serious contemplation,
Pondering o'er some weighty matter
He goes by life's puns and frivols
Which are miles and miles below him
He goes by the gentle co-eds
Who side-glance with a longing
Never seeming to have noticed,
Never seeming to have seen them.
"Sampson is a baseball pitcher.
Oft he twirls the sphere of leather,
Part for joy and part for glory.
He is tall and gaunt in makeup
And is famous as a hero
For he was the leading Hgure V
In the Sampson murder trouble
Back a few years, you remember.
"Have you ever heard of Kirwan-
Kirwan who's so slow and solemn,
Kirwan with the voice sepulchral,
In its hollow intonations,
Deep and melancholy accents.
Kirwan has a sad demeanor
And a smile won't dare come to him
"E, E. Waltman is chief justice
In the niock courts of the law schoolg
He is haughty in his bearing
And his presence is commanding,
So that all the other students
Stand in awe and much respect him
Even though he came from Tabor."
Thus it was he told me of them,
Of the ones he best remembered,
Of the ones he most encountered.
Then the gray of morning entered,
Entered and dispelled the darkness,
Entered and dispelled the shadows,
And the speaker slowly vanished,
Vanished like a cloud of vapor
To the picture that he came from,
To the picture in Pound's oiiice.
Thus it is Iive told you of them
In the manner that he told me,
In the manner that he answered
When I asked him all about them.

But you're trying to- take the W

And let it roll along,

Cook-"Now at the last lecture we were discussing the case of For-
taskew V. Burnup. This, you will renieinber, was a case where Burnup,
who was the Hlffllll gm' frm! of 200 shares of preferred stock in a boot
and shoe corporation organized under Lord Hurly-l3urly's act, demised
a moiety of his equitable estate to R., who brought this action against
Fortaskew, the trustee dr .mu Zurl, in Burnup's name, seeking to have
the fraudulent transfer set aside as against the defendant, who took
with knowledge of the trust. Or to state the case hypothetically: A.
is the owner of the equitable mr, and as such assigns an individual
moiety to X., let us say. Now we decided at the last lecture that there
Could be no trust without a nfs, X. X. thereby had an irrevocable power
of attorney to have the shares transferred on the books of the Co., sub-
ject to the mortgage that we mentioned from A. to Z., which, under the
common law, would create in Z. a legal interest. Now what would X.
take? We saw that X. got an irrevocable power of attorney. Now the
question is, What are his rights as against the assignee of the fraudulent
trustee, and are they subject to whatever estate the first mortgagee
had? What do you say, Mr. Baker?"
Baker-"X. can recover."
Cook-"What becomes of our rule that equity acts in pymolzam and
not in rem? V
Baker is discreetly silent.
McKelvey-"Would it make any difference if the stock was com-
mon instead of preferred?',
Cook-"I don't care to discuss that question in class, Mr. McKelveyg
it belongs more properly to our course next semester in corporations.
I see the time is about up, Think that last case over until the next
lecture. That is all for to-day."

It happened in Lincoln, in Lancaster county,
The state of Nebraska, that the god of bounty
Had given to Ritchie, the smart Junior, all
That he had desired, but a good football.
He Went to the Library once in September,
And found it deserted. Said he, "I remember
In that desk is hid the Senior football,
Itls a good time to steal it, and fool them all."
So, under his coat he tucked the football,
Ran out of the room, and dove through the hall
And out of the campus and up 12th street
He ran fast as he could move his feet.
And now, every evening he takes such pleasure,
His infantile joy is, in truth, without measure,
As he takes a run, or a jump, or a fall
With his greatest treasure, that stolen football.

"Music hath charms? the poet said, "to soothe the savage breast.
Vlfhy has its charm
Done Bald such harm,
Harassed his soul, his noble head, and
filled him with unrest?
Each Sunday afternoon and night, and several nights a Week,
With actions queer
Friend Bald draws near
The music school. To left and right he'll lookg then in helll sneak
His charmer is, without a doubt, a maiden meek and mild,
A beauty rare
With golden hair.
But when he knows his secret's out, F, A. Bald will be Wild.

I do not pray for morbid wealth,
Though low my coffers beg
Nor yet for love, nor better health,
For these will come to meg
Nor do I sigh for worldly fame,
For bards to loudly sing
The glories of my Work and name-
That's but a paltry thing!
But this devoutly I avow,
The burden of my prayer,
That there will come to me somehow
A part of Armstrong's hair!
' 9'feiffer'a Qraqer
Bountiful Goddess, at your feet,
You see two men distressed,
Who've wandered days with naught to eat
To make this sad request.
Our hair, like Armstrong's, once did grow,
But we used brush and comb,
Till destiny, as we well know,
Gave us this shining dome.
Ohg noble Goddess, give us hair,
Lest, with our supply-a cipher,
It should become a proverb rare,
"As bald as Hart or Pfeiffer."

A JUNIOR LAXV IDEAL
'Gmar in the :iam 5a-'kool
Think, in this legal caravanserai
How wisdom-oozing profs work night and dayg
And slutfer after sluffer in his time
Dallies awhile, and flunks, and goes his way.
I sometimes think that never grew so red
A nose as on that fledgling Corlettls head.
Phlebotomy once helped the color schemeg
I'd like to see this ruddy stripling bled.
And lately from the tavern door there burst
The mellow voice of Roth-of Roth athirst,
Saying to the genial Ginslinger: "Hey,
Gimme er rockenrih-'twas not the first!
I visited this year Ctwas during Lentj
Profog's debates and heard fool argument
By Handy Andy and the four-eyed Macy
And came away no wiser than I went.
Ah Robbie, could we all with you conspire,
To grasp this whole blame scheme of Law
We'd make it look like three lead dimes-and then
Remake it nearer to our own desire!

In days gone past, as we've been told,
Prof. Wilson, always late,
Came panting down the sidewalks old
With his peculiar gait.
Apologies he murmured low
As he addressed the class,
"I Went to Omaha, you knowg
The train was late. Alas!"
I-Ie comes to class on time at lastg
We hear him from afar,
And here he comes now, rushing past
On his suburban car.

Oh, Shuman the Hustler's come out of the West-
If a question's suggested his answeris the best:
And, save his old Blackstone, well thumbed up and down,
He came without law books, and with no renown.
So learned in law he' could not make a blunder,
There never was a student like Shuman the Hustler.
He stayed not for contracts, he stopped not for sales,
He took special exams after paying to Dales
The money he got for once teaching a school.
Out home at North Platte, But our student was cool,
And he came to the class-room, and Whispered from under
His battered straw hat, "I'm Shuman the Hustler."
So, boldly he entered the old Uni hall,
'Mong Seniors, and Juniors, and Freshmen, and allg
Then spoke the professor, his hand on his chair,
In a manner that showed that he hardly did dare,
'tOh come you to learn, or to steal the profs' thunder,
Or merely for pleasure, good Shuman the Hustler?"
"I long studied law, sir,-the bar examys stiffg-
I Wanted to practice, but I feared that if
I should 'buck' the commission Itd speedily learn
My legal ambitions were not Worth a 'durnf
So, I came to your law school, in order to plunder
Admission to practice," said Shuman the Hustler.
Two years he's been here, and the fame he has earned,
Into mere notoriety, harsh fate has turned.
But he'll go hence in June, and proclaim near and far,
With his boasts, to the World, that he's now at the bar.
In this manner, "The bonds shall ne'er sunder
'Twixt the legal profession and Shuman the Hustler."
They'll miss him, I fear, in the old Uni hall,
For of men of his type there's but one among allg
They'll miss his broad g1'in, and his hair curled so neat,
His endless suggestions, and cheerful conceit.
So learned in law he could ne'er make a blunder,
Have you e'er heard of student like Shuman the Hustler?

ghe 5and:hills 'Liang the 9latte
A Freshman of the Law School sat sighing in his chair,
There was lack of neat apparel, there was dearth of new brushed hair.
And his room-mate sat beside him with his feet perched on the sill,
And he Watched the tears go chasing as the water down a rill.
And the sighing Freshman stammered as his comrade stroked his hand
As he sighed, "My poor head's thumping hard enough to beat the band.
Take that sponge and, Billy, wet it, which I wore inside my hat
When I was in the sand-hills, the sand-hills 'long the Platte.
How I long to see my brothers and my sisters crowd around
So I can tell my story of the things that I have foundg
How I've chewed the chop-house leather, till I chewed it in my sleep.
And the nightmare haunted ever, even though in slumber deep.
How I battled to digest it, 'long with tough and soggy bread
Until I can not see straight for the thumping in my head.
But this is surely culture, education, and all that!
But I'd rather climb the sand-hills, the sand-hills 'long the Platte.
How I'd like to see my mother frying doughnuts at the stove,
And the rolls of snowy biscuits, yellow butter, and, by Jove!
Cans of milk all white and creamy, and Pd never try to tell
Of the jars of apple butter, and the other kinds of jell.
And the apples in the cellar, and the chickens in ther yard
And the Jersey co-ws and Holstein, though I never try so hard.
And the Poland China hogs just a rollin' in their fat .
In my home among the sand-hills, the sand-hills 'long the Platte.
But shucks! that's all vainglory now they've sent me long down here
To fill my head. with contracts, torts, and agency, oh dear!
How it iills my soul with anguish when I think of all I miss.
Ten months ago I never thought I'd ever come to this.
My appetite has all fagged out, my cheeks once brown and red
Have shrunk away to hollows, such a pain inside my head!
And it thumps away so fearful that I can not wear my hat
Which I wore among the sand-hills, the sand-hills 'long the Platte.
And then I know another, not a sister, by the way,
VVe went to school together, and studied every day,
And still she's just as dear to me as when we used to ride
Across the rolling prairie together side by side.
Of course, there're lots of girls '11 nice ones, too, no doubt,
But there ain't no use a talliin', she'll put 'em all to rout!
There ain't no light can dazzle the sunshine 'neath her hat
YVhen I am in the sand-hills, the sand-hills 'long the Platte,"
And as he spoke his feeble voice was growing very weak,
His eyes put on a dreamy look, he sighed and ceased to speak.
His room-mate stretched and gave a yawn. and tumbled into bed
As flickering shadows creeping across the ceiling fled.
The soft moon rose up slowly and calmly she looked down
Upon the campus buildings and ou a far off town.
And one stray beam crept toward him and hit him where he sat
As it oft had hit the sand-hills. the sand-hills 'long the Platte.

BIG NINE YIELDS.
Western Football Managers Discuss Bryan and
Fusion Party in Nebraska
Edgar Davis, football manager for
the Cornhuskers, and his assistant
manager, J. K. Morrison, were in the
city yesterday to attend the Big Nine
conference. They were gratified at se-
curing dates with Michigan, Minne-
sota, Wisconsin, and Illinois. Both be-
ing affable gentlemen and typically
representative .of western college men,
they attracted much attention in the
corridors and rotunda of the Grand
Pacific. They have the healthy,
bronzed color that comes from horse-
back riding on the plains, and their
gait has that peculiar jerk step that
is the infallible sign of a life spent
in the saddle.
They say that the Indians rarely
disturb the settlers since the consum-
mation of Senator Dietrich's treaty
with them at Hastings, a flourishing
trading post in the sand-hills, and
hitherto liable to raids by the pred-
The people of the state idolize Sen-
ator Dietrich for his success in that
treaty, whereby the Indians, in con-
sideration of four barrels of whisky,
gave to the senator their ponies and
guns, and all but one day's rations.
They have been so poor since that
they are too busy rustling a living
to bother the whites. Some of the
senator's garrulous enemies objected
to his selling the ponies and guns on
his private account, but the new daily
paper at Lincoln started by D. E.
Thompson, a leading Y. M. C. A.
worker of the West, speedily vindi-
cated the senator.
Neither of the Nebraska college
men seems afflicted with those striking
idiosyncracies that so readily single
out their eastern brethren. Their sim-
plicity in manner and dress comported
well with the quietness of their speech
and demeanor. Their true western
blood asserted itself when they or-
dered horses and started for a horse-
back ride. The crowd that had gath-
ered to watch them mount cheered
lustily for the open-hearted western-
ers as they rode away. Their western
manner of sitting in the saddle occa-
sioned much comment. Donohue, the
famous turfman, in speaking of the
firm seat they maintained, said that
was what enabled the cowboys to ride
enormous distances with little fatigue.
A considerable crowd was at the
train to see the Westerners depart last
evening. Mr. Morrison stated that in
his opinion the populist party was
practically dead, and that most of its
personnel would hereafter vote the
prohibition ticket. He also praised
the efforts of the World-Herald, a pa-
per published at Omaha, for its hearty
cooperation with Chancellor Andrews
to raise the requisite amount to meet
the conditions of Rockefeller's gift to
the college, of a new building, devoted
exclusively to research work along the
lines of Chancellor Andrews' theory
respecting the cremation of helpless
Mr. Davis also discussed quite freely
the political conditions. He said that
he himself, and in fact most of the
leading democrats of the state, voted
for Roosevelt in preference to Cleve-
land and that the next legislature
would send Mr. Bryan to the U. S.
Senate, the democrats and republicans
combining to defeat ex-Governor
Mickey, the candidateof the popu-
lists, prohibitionists, and socialists.
Mr. Davis gave little credence to the
rumor that Arizona university was en-
deavoring to take Andrews from Ne-
braska. In case Nebraska lost An-
drews, Mr. Davis thought the
chancellorship would go to either
Coach Booth or Harry Shedd, the
chances being in favor of the latter,
he having had more experience with

Idle studied trusts for a long half yearg
lVe studied thein hard, and yet I fear,
Of all the trusts in the course we took
Wle only know how to "trust in Cook'
A constructive trust is a creature weird.
Resulting trusts are more to be feared.
But of all the trusts in Ames' Case llook
I know but one-that's "trust in Cookf,
Trustees, legal titles hold, they say
The land is B's but belongs to A.
But whenever for trusts I start to look
I search for my standby-"trust in Cook."
A specific rcs is the Hrst thing required.
If there is none, back to law you're fired.
If you can't find one by hook or crook,
Your only TCITIGCIYIS-utI'USt in Cook."
Althougli under legal incapacity
To hold for himself, one can be a trustee,
A pauper, a bankrupt, a lord, or a duke.
I donit understand it, but "trust in Cook."
You inust have something' certain for a crsfzzi,
Dogs, horses, or slaves, but not charity.
I've looked for the reason in every nook,
And now I have found it-"trust in Cook."
Cases most inconsistent, there are side by side.
"It's a trust," i'It's a debtf' 'K Itts a lJEl.ll1T1C11t,n
In confusion, until all the windows shook,
But they're now reconciled, it's a "trust in Cook."
It's all very clear," said the prof. in the chair,
"This subject is really as clear as the air."
4'It's as clear as mud," was the muttered rebuke,
'fThere's only one trust-that's 'trust in Cook.
We finished the subject and Ames' Case Book.
It made us quite sad when he had to look
At the grades on the nnal exam we took,
But we learned one thing-that's 'ftrust in Cook."

QVVith apologies to Faitliless Nellie Grayj 4
Fred Righter was a student bold,
And used to school's alarmsg
But a "copper" carried off his dog,
And injured Freddie's charms!
Now as they took his dog away
Said Fred, 'tLet others shoot,
For here I lose my brainy dog,
And all my charms to boot."
Now Fred, he loved a pretty maid,
Her name was Annie Mooreg
To make a call without his dog
Made Freddie Very sore.
So when he called on Annie Moore
On him she laid much blame.
She told him that Without his dog
He did not look the same.
'O Annie Moore! O Ann
your love so warm?
The love that loves a Se
Should be more l1DifO1'I11."
Said she, "I loved a student once.
He owned a. dog so braveg
But I will never have a man
Whose dog is in the grave.
'fBefore your dog was dead and gone
Your love I did allow,
But since youive lost your better half
I will not have you now!"
"O false and fickle Annie Moore,
Your 'no' I understandg
Sorne other dog has won N
Some other IH
an your hand."
Now when he went from Annie Moore
He took a long farewell,
And swore that in
a. single state
He ever more would dwell.

Monroe v. fowan
Action for zfresjvczss on the case. Defendant is charged with
alienation of affections. Damages and a perpetual injunction asked,
Facts are sufficiently stated in opinion. '
MILEK, C. I. The plaintiff, a student of the Law College at
the University of Nebraska, alleges considerable progress in win-
ning the affections of a classmate, Miss Berthag that he frequently
chatted with her in the library, that he sat beside her in class, that
he frequently borrowed her case-book, and that he on one occasion,
to-wit, the thirtieth day of -February, escorted her to the Oliver
theater to witness a secmce of Flint, the magician. to substantiate
which allegation there was jnirofert and Oyez' of two stub-checks for
He further alleges that one Cowan, also a student of the Law
College of the University of Nebraska, with full knowledge of the
status quo of the plaintiff and Miss Bertha, with full knowledge
of the plaintiff's efforts to win' the affections of the aforesaid Miss
Bertha, and with full knowledge of plaintiff's trouble and expense
in escorting her to witness the sc5a1zce of Flint, the magician, did
with malice aforethought, enter into conversation with the aforesaid
'Miss Bertha, that the defendant without provocation offered to and
did search for books for her 5 that without any express consideration,
the said defendant on divers occasions and publicly sat beside her
in the library for the full period of one hourg that on such occasions
he whispered, smiled, and de1neaned himself in a manner purposely
calculated to win the affections of a suspecting girlyg that with full
knowledge of the probable effects of his acts he purchased and
wore a new necktie, and expended considerable sums of money in
the purchase of peanuts.
And the plaintiff further alleges that by reason of the afore-
said malicious acts of the defendant, the position of the plaintiff in
the affections of the aforesaid Miss Bertha has become a matter
1'1zd11b1'fczi115,' and that his mental suffering has induced sleeplessness
and consequent loss of ilesh and appetite. The plaintiff prays that
he be decreed five dollars damages, and that an injunction be granted
perpetually restraining the defendant from departing from the usual
tenor of his way in order to win the affections of the aforesaid Miss
An injunction is granted for two months, which is sufficient
time for the plaintiff to make good. If he fails within such time,
public policy and the court's high regard for the principle of dclicfzzs
pcfzrofzaey, as well as the need of encouraging individual initiative,
requires the removal of the fetters of the law from the defendant.
The plaintiff's claim for damages is not supported by precedents.
They are the natural consequence of his own premeditated actions to
win the affections of a member of the gentler sex. The well-settled
principle governing in such cases is that all damages incurred in
such efforts are damvzzmz absque izzjzzvfia. The New York courts
hold a reverse rule. But the cases may be reconciled on the ground
that New York girls and Nebraska girls are not the same.

Wfhen I wanted a girl to see,
Five young men or even three,
IW hen my lessons were fair to me,
And I felt that my time was free,
VVhen I wanted to rind a chair,
IW hen I wanted a book in there,
Then I straightway would repair
To the dear library.
Oh, I loved the library,
Loved the library,
Loved the library,
Lots of good times I have had in there
Chatting and holding down a chair.
Now, alas, all my pleasure's o'er,
Never can I go there more,
Now its general use is der,
For they've cruelly barred the door,
Sealed it tightly, but not with wax,
llfith a Wyeir across the cracks,
Stationed there to keep me back,
From the dear library.
I loved the library,
Loved the library,
Loved the library,
But I can never go
For they've cruelly barred the door.

QThe presiding officer took his seat upon the drum. Page 1330
The chapel was crowded. john Uhl in his evening suit was
rushing in extra chairs in a perspiring fashion. Dr. Jones was
dusting the organ vigorously for Miss Puffer who was to play while
the jury were out deliberating at the close of the famous trial+a trial
now familiar in all its details to every student on the campus. Soon
Lieutenant Huntington came hurrying in with the large bass drum and
placed it on the platform, from the head of which Commandant Chaze
was to conduct the court-martial. The strains of an approaching band
hushed to a dead silence the buzzing of the crowd, and soon the bat-
talion band entered with measured tread, led by the stately drum ma-
jor, without whom the band would seem incomplete, so familiar are we
with the majestic pointings of his stick and the dignihed pose of
his form, what need of further comment upon our popular drum major,
W. D. Green? Following the band marched Commandant Chaze and the
counsel for the department, B. G. Lewis, captain of Company E, both
dressed in punctilious military fashion. Then came twelve jurors,
all ofticers of the battalion: a jury heing allowed to the three culprits
through the leniency of the commandant and upon the assent of the
captain of Company li. These three luckless gentlemen came next,
closely guarded hy six .Freshman sentinels, heavily armed, and
monotonously chanting the paragraphs respecting the guarding of
prisoners. The whitened and drawn faces of the doomed did not
conceal their identity, and Hardman, Buchanan, and Davis were
easily recognized. They were seated upon the south side of the
platform still closely guarded. The presiding officer took his seat
upon the drum, Counsel Lewis, captain of Company E, maintained
an erect attitude upon the north side with chest it la Militaire, and
with a determined countenance that hoded no good for the accused.
llfhen all were seated and dead silence once more restored,
the commandant rose slowly, carefully arranged his moustaches,
and spoke as follows:
''Ladies-ahem-and-Gentlemen1 This is an occasion of
niuch pleasure-ahem-and-pain. Pleasure-that the University
-through its military department will exact the penalty-after a
fair-ahem-and impartial hearing-the penalty for an insult to its
dignity. Pain that there should be lacking in the XVest that I'5f7l'Iiz'
dc corps-de corps-ahem-which is characteristic of the older and
more dignified institutions of the East. That the University-ahem
-the University-in the capacity of one of its departments can
overlook a brazen affront to one of its representatives-ahem-to-
wit-the battalion counsel, Mr. Lewis, captain of Company E-is.
of course, donlt you know-impossihle-quite impossible-don't you
The presiding officer thereupon resumed his seat upon the
drum, pulling vigorously his moustaches. Violent nods of ap-
proval Were noticed in Faculty Row. There was, however, one
exception. One head shook negatively. Thereupon the command-
ant arose, turned to the acting clerk of the court martial, and spoke:
:'Major Hewitt, late captain of the defunct and canned
Company D, you will record-ahem-don't you know-you will
record the name of that law professor who invented the curved ball
as an additional defendant in this trial. Ahem-ahem-I want to
caution those present that the department can tolerate no insubordi-
nation or disapproval. Counsel Lewis, captain of Company E, you
will read the charge upon which these three defendants are
After proper salutes and observance of military decorum the
captain of Company E read as follows:

"To the Commandant of the Battalion, University of Nebraska,
"I have the honor to report that on Thursday evening of last
week, when dressed in full uniform, with my sword Ca present from
Co. EQ hanging at my side, I passed near Station A one Hardman,
a law student, one Buchanan, a law student, one Davis, a law
student. These three individuals failed to salute, but on the contrary
smiled, grinned, chuckled, laughed, and boisterously hallooed,
thereby both 0-mitting respect and C0111-mitting disrespect to the
office with which the University has honored the undersigned.
"BU1:DE'r'rE GRANv1LL12 LEWIS,
"Caj1ia1'1L of Company E."
At this time the commandant sternly faced the jury and said:
"Officers of the jury: You have heard the fair and impartial
trial of the accused. You have heard the evidence. You will retire
and, after giving the matter fair, candid, and impartial consideration,
you will return the following verdict. I want to caution you,
officers of the jury, not to deviate from the following findings:
QReadsj "I. We ind after carefully weighing the evidence
that one Hardman, a law student, one Buchanan, a law student, and
one Davis, a law student, are guilty of disrespect to a representative
of the University and should be instantly expelled.
"2. VVe find a certain law professor, the inventor of the curved
ball, also late football coach of the University, guilty of disapproval
of the military department, and recommend he be permanently en-
joined from entering upon, going into, trespassing upon, or crawling
over into, the athletic field of the University of Nebraska.
"3,. We further find the Law School a source of trouble, a hot-
bed of insubordination, a promoter of disrespect, and recommend the
students thereof be required to drill six hours per week in accord-
ance with the ruling of the war department, as Company '17, with
Lieutenant Linn Murdock Huntington, late color sergeant and late
editor of the Senior Annual, as captain.
"4. VVe further recommend for the better dispatch of business,
for the avoidance of complications, that the executive officers of the
University be removed to the east end of the Armory and that one
Seeley Clark be hereafter required to be on duty in full uniformfl
The jury took the instructions, marched once around the plat-
form, saluted, and returned the verdict as found. The commandant
rose, drew from his pocket a blanket order from the board of
regents confirming the findings, read it to the audience assembled,
and, with the band preceding as before,'the military cavalcade re-
tired. The crowd of over 1,000 rose as a man, and with never
a Word marched out in single file, with head and shoulders bowed
under the burden of militarism in the University of Nebraska.

K'Starting out with the maxim, 'Cujzzs est solrzmz, cjus est usque
ad coelimz et C67Z1f7'H77Z,, we can be exonerated from any intrinsic
absurdity of being the putative parent of an anomaly when We
asseverate and, even at the risk of being turgidly tedious, reiterate
that a feoffment in fee of the messuage of B. with a conditional lim-
itation over to the heirs of Y. for the use of the eldest so-n of X.
in tail would come under the ban of qufia emptores and create that
feudal abomination, a springing use. lf the demise contained an
express provision relative to the prescriptive right of ancient lights,
one might lay it down as an absolute rule, established by the over-
whelming preponderance of authoritative jurisdictions, and not to
be refuted by the pedantry of antediluvian and fossilized logicians,
that abatement would be eminently justifiable. And While not' laying
it down dogmatically, it seems to me that the opposite would be
more commensurate with modern thought, and less reprehensible
in its amplihcationsg though with needless prolixity and mental
vaccillation courts have tried to reason around, and as a result
'confusion is worse confounded' But in some later decisions, and
more particularly by way of obiter, the courts have adopted the

'wellensiek vs. Kirwan et al.
SHELBURN, P. I. Gne Sunday morning, McKelvey, a section
boss, was sitting on a barrel beside the door of his dwelling Che
being the tenant of the lot by sufferancej, and conversing with one
Kirwan, a bridge contractor, respecting railroad matters, when the
defendant and cross-petitioner, Vlfellensick, passed by on the public
sidewalk, distant one hundred feet from plaintiffs dwelling. The
defendant, seemingly attracted by the conversation, cro-ssed the
yard, and approaching the plaintiff and his friend Kirwan, stood
there. lVfcKelvey and Kirwan, being deeply engrossed, did not
become cognizant of the defendant's presence until McKelvey's
little son asked the stranger his name. None of the parties having
previous acquaintanceship with the defendant and the latter not
proceeding to explain his presence, McKelvey requested him to
Withdraw from the premises.
The subsequent acts of the parties are in dispute. The plain-
tiff's petition alleges that Kirwan, "with no more force than was
absolutely necessary, ejected the aforesaid Wellensick from the
premises." The defendant in his answer and cross-petition alleges
"that McKelvey cursed loudly and heaped imprecations' foul and
blighting upon the head of the defendant and cross-petitioner and
called him numerous vile names, to-wit, 'Buttinslcy and Rubber-
neck,' whereupon the defendant and cross-petitioner remonstrated
with the said Mclielvey, and called his attention to the fact that
it was the Lord's Day, and that loud noises thereon were prohibited
by the village ordinance of Podunlc, that Kirwan suddenly and
without warning laid violent hands upon him, to-wit, one hand on
collar of his Sunday coat and one hand upon the seat of his office
pants, and, lifting the defendant and cross-petitioner high in the
air, carried him in this disconcerting and embarrassing attitude
across the yard, and hurled him with great fo-rce and violence into
the public highway, thereby dislocating the defendant's right shoul-
der and detaching two ribs from the sternum and spoiling one fine
The court finds its task made much easier by the most excellent
brief filed by Martin it Eager, attorneys for the plaintiff, and by
the able arguments of Blezek and Seybold, attorneys for the de-
fendant. We affirm the action of the lower court in finding the
defendant guilty of trespass qumfe ala-usum fregit and fine him

expense of medical attention to defendant's injuries, but are not
liable for the white vest, there being no privity between it and the

The wind one night was cold as ice,
It tossed the snow like grains of rice,
And whirled away in strange caprice
And frantic glee.
But naught can halt a strong young heart,
Just touched by Cupid's glancing dart,
When from her side he stands apart,
But A. D, T.
And thus it was: A lad that night
Danced in thrills of pure delight
For from a lass he'd gained the right
Escort to be.
He dressed him in his neatest tileg
About his lips there played a smile
While waiting for a little while
For-A. D. T!
A note he bore, just one white note!
Our hero's heart leaped to his throat,
He thrust it deep into his coat
Where none could see.
Then all his hopes aside he laid
And other plans forthwith he made,
But not until he'd fully paid
The A. D. T.
It read like this, as you must know:
"I'll have to disappoint you so!
My brother's ill, I can not go,
Ah, woe is me!
As this is now too late to mend
By mail or phone, let Fates attend
While now this note to you I'll send
By A. D. T."
The lass! Oh, such is cruel Fate!
She watched the ling'ring hours grow late,
Impatient though she deigned to wait-
All ready she.
At last she heard a footstep fall,
The door bell ring, and then a call
Alas, it wasn't he at all,
But A. D. T!
And like the first, a note he bore,
She took it as she closed the door,
Then broke the seal as oft before-
Alone was she.
Of force and sense it ran the same
Except it bore another name,
And, too, a brother was to blame
For A. D. T.
All unabashed at school next day
Notes were compared to their dismay,
And both had very much to say,
But cou1dn't see
Just who it was who did the deed,
Though hard they question, strong they plead,
Nor could they see the urgent need
Of A. D. T!
Since then the days have all been peace,
No trouble came, but jokes increase,
Though hard they try to be at ease
In troubled sea.
But till all things go back to dust,
Till gilded piles decay with rust,
These two will evermore distrust
The A. D. T.

For the Suppression of Interrogation?
Qnce upon a Time in the College of Dean Coeros the Wise
Guys thought to form a society for their joint and several use.
Cowan, Baker, and Knapp, the Chiefest of the VVise Guys, an-
nounced that none whose grade in Equity Pleading fell below Q5
per cent need apply. There were mutterings in the College of Dean
Coeros when the new freezing point was established on the college
social thermometer. Big Tim Snavely started a promising row in
the dress-circle, while Lord Salisbury was throwing the parquet into
confusion, whereupon one of the Chiefest Guys, Henry Clay Cowan,
introduced a Wlieelbarrow Bill, admitting the leaders of the insur-
rectionists, viz., Big Tim Snaveley and Lord Salisbury. Now every-
thing is spring-lilce and the violets bloom in the public highways,
while Big Tim discourses on the fallacy in the ancient axiom that
all men are born equal. The roster of the society is given in full
Henry Clay Co-wan, Tho-mas jefferson Baker, Alexander Harn-
ilton Knapp, Big Tim Snaveley, Lord Salisbury, Henry Watterson
Griggs, Colonel Bills Hewitt, jerry Simpson Richards, Patrick

Just what it is involved,

Though oftentimes revolved.

And altogether, we think it is
A badly mixed up Case.
D4 Uiait to the Zlni.
VVas down to Lincoln last week, Si,
To see the state fair show,
And while down there I thought l'd try
To see the Uni, too.
So Ann and me, we jest went round
An' up an' down them walks,
And all the things that there we found
Would fill a book, by Jocks!
The campus, it was nice an' clean
As our back pasture lot.
The trees and grass were fresh an' green
An' seats to rest when hot.
When ma and me had walked around
An' seen all there was to see
We jest went over an' set down
To rest awhile, by Gee!
An' there we set fur nigh an hour,
An' seen the folks go by-
Big country lads with brawn an' power
An' country lasses shy,
They walked together side by side
A hold o' hands they had
And when the lad a. joke he tried
She blushed like peaches, Gad!
An' then there come along a chap
With hat tipped on one side
An' mouth wide open like a gap,
An' eyes a-bulgin' wide.
He stepped along most easy like
E'en most too skeered to move
Jest about to turn and hike
An' run away, by Jove!
With laugh an' style most awful pert,
An' iiuffy flaxen curls,
With arms chuck full of extra skirt,
A flock of jolly girls
Came trippin' long like yearlin' calves
'At's jest let loose, yer know,
From out the stable an' the stoves
Indeed they did, by Joel "
An' then I se-en ai portly manj
Come walkin' down the step,
Ann nudged me an' I nudged Ann,
Ses I, "the Chance, I bet."
And so it was, with solemn face
And strong an' manly swing
A-comin' along-a good stiff pace-
A-cornin' our way, by Ging!
An' jest as he was goin' past
Us a-settin' on that bench
I ris' right up to show I dast
An' give hisarln a wrench.
An' then he looked right straight at me
To- scold fur what I'd done,
But all he said was 'Tm glad to see
You strangers here, I swan!"
An' then he ses, "Have you a boy
To send to me to learn,
Fur we hold yo-u with sort 0' joy
As a partner in this concern."
An' then he told us what to see
An' said he'd send around
Some so-rt of guide fur ma an' me
An' so he did, I'm bound!
I've heard a heap about him, Si,
O' speakin' to the folks
'Bout gettin' married. by an' by,
The newsmen think 'em jokes.
'Bout poor n1en's kids an' sich as that,
It's only newsy plunder,
The newsman's talkin' through his hat,
Fur Ben's all right, by thunder!
An' so' We staid an' looked around-
Seen all the sights about,
Then set and watched the sun go down
An' seen the stars come out.
And when the night had shaken o!er
Her curtains blue an' drab
I done what I seldom did afore-
I squeezed ma's hand, by grab!
An' so, when next fair time comes again
Fm going there once more
In spite of cyclone, hail, er rain
.Iest as I did afore.
Fur, don't yer know, I tell yer, Si,
They like to have us come,
Fur on the side, twixt you and I,
We pay the bills, by gum!

DIRECTOR FOGG AND HIS FREAK MUSEUM
QN. B.-Inspired by a glimpse into the Debate Trophy Room 5
In ye olden time when the world was young
Lived a sage of mighty brain,
Wlio worked and toiled at a toilsome work
To earn his well-earned grain,
And a little meat, and some pie and cake,
And some pork and beans besideg
Oh small were the wants of the wonted fare
That daily filled his hide.
Oh, stern was Platois eye and face,
As he fronted his flock each day,
And he bade them dig, in a doleful tone
That none could disobey,
And he wept a weep that was woeful long
As he gazed on his awe-struck crowd,
And he sware an oath beneath his breath
That could scarce be thought aloud.
"Are there none that are old, that are wise," cried he
"None but these students green!
Of all cheap guys I have viewed, I wot,
The worst are these, I ween.
"Alack a day! and alas, alack.!"
I-Ie trilled to his trembling tribe,
"Oh why are there none in the days of now
'W ho equal your humble scribe.
"Oh, why are the men who live to-day
So lacking in wit and worth,
Oh, why are there none so Wise as I
Upon this great green earth?
"F or ,tis writ up there in the great great writ,
On the record in the sky
That till such I find in my fearsome fare
'Tis willed I can not die."
And he gnawed his nails and he tore his hair,
And he burned his Hesh with lime,
And the awful rage of this awful man
Is thought o-f to this time.
But the time passed by as it sometimes does
When all is done and said,
And the golden gleam of the grinning moon
I-Iad ofttimes turned to red.
And the glowing hair of this grewsome prof
Assumed a grayish white,
And age's hand had bent his head,
Against his bent and might.
And the classes came and the classes Went,
And babes grew old and died,
And a weary, wirey, woeful wreck
Now searched the earth and cried.
He searched the East, and he searched the
And the South and the eold North Sea,
In querulous quest of a quiet man,
SO wilfully wise as he.
Till after the end of a thousand yea
And a thousand more had passed,
He tumed in his toil out to the Wlest,
In hopes of a haven at last.
And he Came, 'tis said, a sweet sp
To a room in search of rest,
VVhere another prof of another age
VVas doing his very best.
And above the door of the dingy den
Of the modern pedagogue,
'Was a brightened band of a burnished bla
"PROFESSOR M. M. rose."
But scarce had the seer assumed his seat,
Recovered his feeble breath,
Than catching sight of the fearful sign,
Threw up his hands in death. ,

The man who wrote Ben Hurg
When Lewis gets to Oxford
The diplomats will stir.
Nuts to 'Graek
I would not like to know it all,
But I want to understand,
'W hat makes "Judge" Armstrongls head so Bald
And I. Earl Tanner tan.
And why we can't make Righter right,
Or I. P. Hewitt hew,
And why won't Louie Lightner light,
I do not know, do you?
I can not tell to save my life
The mystery and the how I
Of making L. O. Pfeiffer Fife,
Or Charley Cowan cow,
Another thing I would compel-
For this I trust to luck-
I want to see O'Shelburn shell
And Bill Buchanan buck.
And yet another I would make-
This just to fill the bill-
I want to see Earl Baker bake
And I-Ienry Wilson will.
But oh, alas! in woe or weal
My mirth turns to a sob-
just why will brave Fred Nielsen kneel
And C, A. Robbins rob?
And is the Wolff, once Fierce and Wild
As comes from holy writ,
Now managed by a little child,
That Lambe's not ,fraid a bit?
When sounds of toil and daylight pale
And falls the dews and damp,
Then who's the belle upon whose trail
Does M. P. Campbell camp? ,.
And when the Alter's sacred flames
Are lighted fore and aft
Why can't we sail adown the James
Upon our talking Craft?
The Marshall, then, with Sward and Shield,
Vtfill peace around enwrap
And quiet through the moonlight steals,
So Roth can take his Knapp.

Our Happy is a lad so very gay,
He's blithe and cheerful every day,
I-Ie's comic, too, in his waggish Way
And butts right in Without delay.
He runs to help the maidens dear,
For yelping curs he sheds a tear,
On mercy's errand he heeds no jeer,
This funny lad so short and queer.
But trot thee on, my little man,
The World is cold and 'll ever be,
It's short of help and has under ban
A heart as Warm as yours can be.
Quick ict to 'Mark
One cool, crisp January day
Quick got to work.
VVe ne'er before had chance to say
Quick got to work.
His eyes he placed upon his book,
A place where seldom his eyes look,
The earth and its foundation shook
To see Quick work.
His book he placed before his face
So he could work.
In library he took his place
He would not shirk.
Both hands he used to hold his head,
His face was drawn, his eyes were red,
The sight was grand, so Wyer said,
When Frankie Worked.
The stress was most too much for Quick,
He worked in vaing
It really made him Very sick-
Eiects of strain.
The doctor said results were such
Frank really must not work so much-
He even hinted at a crutch
For Frankie's brain.
Monroe Wears a look of dejection,
But With law Work it has no connection.
He eats every day
At the vegetarian cafe,
And he's ruined his once good complexion.

fhe Question of the ifour
Behold our fair Priscilla
Engaged in study brown,
Behold her wrinkled forehead,
Her vexed and dainty frown.
Qh why is thus Priscilla
So straight and strong and tall
So worried and so troubled,
Though garbed as for a ball?
Is it because some lover
Has shown his heart untrue?
Or is some other damsel
Arrayed in fairer hue?
Ah no! Our dear Priscilla
Doth only muse, alack,
If for the Band Informal
Helll dig up for a hack.
We know a youth with temper sunny,
Whate'er he says is wondrous funny,
A man with conversation funny
He makes his brags he does not pass.
He would much rather chase a lass.
You ought to hear him flunk in class,
The lad who Works his teachers well,
Who Works his jaw until We yell,
One sees a large and jolly sell
I-Ie said he had attained his aimg
To pass on Torts brought him such fame,
Life never would seem quite the same

Here's a gentleman gymnastic,
Who by training fierce and drastic
Has become so very plastic
That with ease he ties himself into a loop.
On the bars he can not blunderg
In the pole vault he's a wonderg
He can burst steel bands asunderg
And can do a flip-flop backward through a
In the wrestle he's as wary
And elusive as a fairy.
All his movements are as airy
As of any feathered thing you ever saw.
He's so very near perfection
That his skill deiies correction
And his only dereliction
Is he knows so awful much about the law.

Wherefore thine anguished tone?
Thou tempest-tossed-thou wailing ghost
Why thy unceasing moan?
What meaning lies in endless sighs,
Soul of the bleak night wind,
Thy sobbing low-thy haunting woe,
What grief prays on thy mind?
Then spake the sad night wind to me,
Its voice brimful of tragedy:
"Woe, woe is me, my heart is sad,
I've lost the bestest toy I had,
Blithe were my days and free from care
Till Jimmie Armstrong cut his hair!"

"I regard those who study law as an inferior class of men Whose
intelligence is of a low order."-E. F. Myers.
Intelligence, thou fleeing elf,
Hast from the law departed
And left poor Waltman in the lurch,
Abject and broken-hearted.
Thy Wonted place dost thou desert
With all thy noble sires
And hide thy once fair face and form
In tangled locks of Myers.
The laws are now descended low 4
And Myers is far superior,
While Waltman, 'cause he wouldn't budge
In mind is far inferior.
And thus it is, the shaggy youth
From his exalted station
Sees not the power of the law
That guides the whole creation.

Each one was just a rural fool,

And graceful bends before the tugging wind
So does the stately form of Clark ascend
To gaze compassionate on all mankind.

There was a boy named Johnnie Morrison
Who, from Gretna Hay Switch came down
To win for himself laurels and renown.
Remembering his illustrious connection,
The boys a name for him did make selection
And what more appropriate I wot
Than "Alfalfa',-after his native plot?
But alas, alack, too prone are we
To abbreviate all we hear and see,
And "Alfalfa"-just "Fa1fle" became
And ever since, leech-like this name
Has clung to Johnnie of illustrious fame.
I-Ie is the boy manager we know
And many great things has he in tow,
But what he'll do or become
No man knows, under the sun!
He aspires so very high-
Perhaps-helll reach the sky,

For the pole' so quickly falling
With a, crash that's most appalling
Hits the hornets' nest a blow.
Then the hornets come forth, pouring.
With a rush that's almost roaring,
Led by justice they go soaring
Where the two tort-feasors go.

There is one that they call Georgie Lantzg
Although he is small,
He is great at football,

And on the "Choo Choo" cars
I came from there to here
To study many a year.
For law I thought l'd try
And see if such as I
Could not make the town
Of Ord ring with renown.
Fm proud to say indeed
The profs of me take heed,
For every single blessed day
To jokes I turn all they say.
Papa thinks lim cute and cunning,
But I'll set them all a-humming
When I take my sheepskin back
To Ord, together with my pack.

"Seybold, what is the rule as to certainty, anyway ?-you don't

"Well, take this kind of a case: I bring suit against an infant

delivered, and set it out in lzaec -verba. Now in his plea he sets
up infancy and also pleads that he made a different sort of a con-

made the contract set out in the declaration. Now Seybold, is time

For these long years it's been our fate
To- work here. Now we graduate.
But, now that we are nearing June,
The time, to me, has come too soon.
We've all made friends, and good ones, too.
And soon we part, as all must do.
Whether our fortunes smile or frown,
Whether we're up or even down
None of us know. But, come what may,
Let's so live that on the last great day
We plead our case, and plead so well
We'll meet once more. Till then, farewell.

It's more than rhyme or storyg
It came from out the mystic past,
From battles fierce and gory.
Chain-His looks belie not his heart. It is mad
He wiggles and wobbles,
He's here and now there,
A most unaccountable thing.
Alas, alack! He takes his way
VVhere snares and pitfalls lie,
And loud his powers he does insist
To dwarf and Stull-ti-fy.
Craft-The gods hath given him a few stray thoughts,
spoon, withal, wherewith to dish them out.
Two panes of glass, a hefty step,
Two eyes of piercing glance.
"lil ,f f'lif ff f
At chapel time he takes a stroll
Around the campus walks,
And to a Winsome maiden shy
He talks and talks and talks.
e of more substantial
and a silver
He wanders alone no longer.
Forsooth, he is much married.
His thoughts are like the winds,
They come and go away,
But none can say from whence or whither.
Heaven is close to him now,
Closer than ever before,
Ere long at this rate he'll depart
And be with us here never IHOFC.
Hazen-Strong armed, Heet-footed, and sweet.
Heim-Yea, verily, a man of good repute and locks of night-like
All laws from his youth did he keep,
But in insurance he taketh his sleep.
Hewitt, I. P.-
A. flaming intellect that glows
Clean through his shapely head,
Or, better be it understood,
His hair is tinted-black CEU
Hewitt, T. M.-':By jiminy, this is me. I tell you it is, by crackyf'
Along the furrows of his face
The sunset seldom glows,
For he bears upon his shoulders small
The world's whole raft of woes.
His voice is one you rarely meet,
Like Annie Laurie's "low and sweet."
He's seen the strife. He bore the toil
Amid the tropicis thirst,
His name is writ upon the roll
Of Nebraskals Fighting First.
Kirwan-There he stands, transfixed, immovable, iirm. as Gibraltar
and-as swift. -
Knapp-What Roth takes between intermissions, i. e., when he is
not playing the cues.
, As the little busy bee
Improves the shining hour,
So Knutson smiles among the books
And gains in Wealth and power.
-i Konop-Built after the manner of a man-of-War.
i 'x g Staunch and true, a smooth running turret,
X M X and a steady forecastle.
'Milly I WW..
Kuser-How strange that one so young should feign become a
Lambe-A Warrior of no mean repute, notwithstanding that his
name implies all gentleness. -
Lightner-A Wag, a wit, but all be-Fogged and that's enough for
McKelvey-It is said the Creator sighed when Mac stepped upon
the stage, and the reason, guess.
As pedagogue he took delight
The squalling kids to -Hog,
But now, alas, he hunts his place
Beneath the eye of Fogg.
Marshall-His name, his calling doth not signify, for he is essen-
tially a man of peace.
Matlach-Prof. Robbins' chief amusement is properly separating
and numbering the papers that Mat hands in on examination
Him, too, the stern impulse of
Fate resistless, bears along.
Milek-A hardened, stubborn, unrepenting old sinner. Still he hath
a melting heart.
Monroe-His head is heavier than the color of his hair might indi-
He can coach a team,
For he's broad of beam,
And at the Midland school
He taught the football rule.
O'Connor-There are two of him, that is to say, his better half we
do not see.
Gwen-A likely politician and a man well kept.
Patterson-Enough that he is a good democrat and not a mug-
Pfeiffer-In colors strong, bold, soldier-featured, but now dis-
Prescott-An embodiment of many virtues, and the least is not that
he takes well, but he captures all feminine hearts unwittingly.
First in love, first in war-
In everything he's first.
He thinks of machinery,
Steam threshers and such,
And all of the law that he Wants very much
Is to keep him all straight in his deals.
Rees-Dark-haired, azure-eyed, with delicate Saxon complexion, a
faint inclination to be good.
Remster-His thought comes as a placid How, and smoothly glides
Richards-He is accustomed to defend. He, too, is no longer sin-
Righter-Sometimes it is hard to tell which is he or his dog.
Hush, be still! Let him slumber long.
If you wake him, he'll sing you a far different song.
Some say that his features are those of Com Paul,
But then it's not his fault, he can't help it at all.
Darlq-haired, full-faced, and calm,
A figure well rounded into shape.
He's the lad that Writes verse
In Words so very terse,
The boy that wins the girls
In the Union social whirls.
He spent his life so far away
F rom where the salty sea rolled,
But still he has the rolling Walk,
Has doughty little Seyhold.
A goodly soul, of even equipoise,
Vifell-balanced and serene.
His is not for doing deadly work,
But simply to protect.
Shuman-A student is this man, and a Worker, too. We Wish him
Smith, H. L.-
A child of fancy and of nction,
And ahead of Vlfatkins in his diction.
Smith, H. M.-Time hath laid his hand upon his heart gently, not
Snaveley-One in Whom Caesar delighted. He is fat and sleek,
not o'er-burdened with plots.
Stong-just see what the omission of one little letter will do.

Theobald-He is lean and hath a hungry look. He thinks too much.
A very pretty youth, and noble, too,
He owns the town all through and through,
An were his voice all there was
Still there were a-plenty.
Another one with lordly ways,
Vtfho in milady's eyes
Finds grace and favor, too, forsooth,
Although he never tries.
For ills of mankind that's certain and sure
There's nothing that does it as lrVarner's safe cure.
He is frisky and jolly
And devoted to folly
As raven, his hair,
He and Smith are a pair.
Vlfellensiek-Behold, a paradox! for how can one lone man, and
faeecl at that, be both at once?
It seems to me as though 'twould seem
It ought not so to be,
But still he talks as in a dream
For so it seems to 1ne.
'Wolff-And thus he came down-a wolf on the fold, but Lambe
keeps right on the even tenor of his way.
On April 29 Nebraska defeated Kansas in interstate debate on
the Monroe Doctrine question, and Buckner, Lightner, and Sawyer
Won the plaudits of an excellent audience for the able work that
gave a decisive victory.
The Senior Class Book of IQO4 made its appearance May 4. The
cover design is dainty and artistic, the engraving of a fine quality,
much of the verse work excellent, while the literary material as a
whole is equal to that of the average Senior Book. Unfortunately
the book is marred by a few decidedly crude efforts at humor, which
must have been inserted without realizing the suffering that such
It is much to be regretted that the editor of the Daily Neb1'askan
should endanger his reputation as an able editor by seizing on one
of the criticisms of the Senior Book as the subject of an editorial,
decidedly below the dignity of an university publication, and which,
owing to the avidity of yellow journals to pounce upon matter of
this nature, has had a most deplorable ending.
The Nebraska interstate debate team, composed of George A.
Lee, B. G. Lewis, and I. C. McReynolds, on May I3 secured unani-
mous decision at Washington University, St. Louis. This is the
seventh successive victory for Nebraska in interstate debate.

The fact that over seventy law schools are using
the Hornbooks as the basis of class study is a
suiiicient indication that experienced teachers
consider them the best books for that purpose
1. They are full-sized octavo text-books. We mention this
fact because some students seem to have gained the mis-
taken impression from the name and the price they are
small pocket manuals. If published singly instead of
in a series, they would have snld at 555.00 or 56.00.
2. The diiliculty which a student encounters in taking up
an ordinary text-book is to disentangle the PRINCIPLES of
law, which he must learn to formulate and classify, from
the mass of explanation and application given in connec-
tion with them. In the Hornbooks, these distinctions are
shown by diiferent styles of type, and the mind is thus
helped by the eye.

full description of our books for students.

How can he be so shocking!
Oh, this everlasting talking!
See now the sad Earth kneel!
In abject supplication, '
Such a sad huiniliationl
But he doesn't give tarnation
How it makes the sad Earth feel!
Can We not by' song or ditty,
By some counsel wise or witty
For the sad Earth Weeping there?

If he'd only be more cheerful,

Then the Earth would be less tearful
And our sojourn here more fair!
