JAMES THOMAS LEES
Qfor flue who :faves the freaks Q
XVhat art, what beauty theirs, so long ago!
Art the most perfect, beauty perfect too,
In spirit, life and language! And he drew
Our untaught minds unto the potent How
Of Greek ideasg helped us all to know,
'When Hon1er's heroes fought, how javelins Hewg
Pictured the comic poet's' roistering crew, 1
Gave the tragedianhs legacy of woeg
Agent of all their bounty. Though with power
The tide of time and chance would sternly sweep
That golden treasure from us, We shall keep,
Amid the jarring of this hasting hour,
Some sense of old perfection, and find rest
ln quiet study of the elder Best.
E. F. PIPER
just a word
HIS is our book. We give it with no boast. It is for those
feeling the bonds that grow with four years of college life: and
yet for those who know not such ties, with the trust that they may
learn one of 1ife's sweetest joys. He that sees good in naught save
the prosaic may perhaps find here the thread that will guide him tor
one side of the world's great touchstone. He that finds pleasure
only in the lightsome fancies of idler's moments will possibly find
here that earnest thought and working hand give the best of life's
finest happiness. That this might be the best of all has been our
prayer, yet we so love the human traits, that not once came the
thought to give a faultless book.

years collegiate work was done at Cornell college, lowa. She will call
U. of N. Alma Mater, where she deems it a pleasure to have spent the
last year of her school life. During this time, though short, her charm-
ing personality has won for her many warm friends.
2. Swan, O. T. This man will always sing you a swan-song for love
of fair ladies. He is continually dying from unrequited passion and as
often resuscitatecl by false hopes. His heart's ever at auction, knocking
itself down to the first bidder, but the fair one comes not, and his soul is
dark as his midnight locks.
3. Brookings, Alice. Chi Omega. A Tekamah girl who jokes the world,

sity to learn the intricacies of the engineering profession. This did not
suit him, so he changed to the elective course to be in more congenial

attested by her merited election to Phi Beta Kappa.

Kan., as origin. He has moved in elliptical and parabolic curves in
Illinois, Iowa, and Nebraska until he found a lfocus at the University.
He has missed the last car from University Place frequently since that
sad night. He will wield the rod a year.

friends for her intellect and her sunny disposition. Got Phi Beta Kappa,
but then we all expected her to. She is going to Wellesley next year.
She expects to go to Europe
Mayhaps with a young man who'll cure up

YVhich all medics think they know.

the Senior-Junior debate. His ambition is to go to Harvard, but he
may teach next year.
2. Stevenson, William Tracy. Born near Nemaha, this state. The
district school, Wesleyan, the State Normal, and the University of
Nebraska were reached at successive stages. Upon graduation, he
hopes to journey west, where he will become a cowboy or a school
teacher or U. S. marshal, or engage in some equally dangerous occu-
3. Loomis, E. Margaret. A fair maiden who graduated from the Lin-
coln high school in 1899. She is very bashful, so we did not ask her
how old she is. We venture, the guess of twenty summers. Her great-
est delight is the study of European history. Next to that is the plea-
sure of discussing economic problems with post-graduate students.
4. Hagenow, May Belle. In '84 moved to Lincoln to prepare for the
Uni. Although taking no active part in class affairs, she has made
many warm friends among her classmates who say that her worst fault
is a strong disapproval of football. A handsome solitaire and her devo-
tion to the culinary art are significant.
5. Thomas, Mabel Ida. Delian. Began to laugh April 13, 1880, and
has never stopped. She started her Uni. career with the class of '02,
but liked that of '03 better, so waited and taught school till it caught
up. She has had a love affair, but-ssh-she has almost forgotten it,
so we will not waken old memories.
6. Schaper, Meta Elizabeth. Phi Beta Kappa. Born 1884. Graduated
from Havelock high school '99 and entered the University in the same
year. Never received one of Wyer's calling cards, never skips class,

basket ball team of 1903.
7. Bruner, F. G. Native of Illinois. Stopped at Streator in 1874.
Never happy unless in presence of other sex. He has been an active
"Pall" and has achieved the honor of obtaining a fellowship in educa-
tion while an undergraduate.
8. Fox, Theodore Wm. Native of Empire state. Born near the beau-
tiful Lake Chautauqua. In January, 1903, became principal of the
Sheridan, Wyo., high school, where he may be found extracting ideas
from budding geniuses, by means of the to1'sion balance.
l. Brown, Arthur. No relation to Ossowatomie Brown. ls known as
"Shorty" Became a Cornhusker at an early date, to show them how
to run creameries and incidentally graduate from Aurora high school.
Since his entrance in the Uni. he has spent his summers and one year
on the Burlington, mechanical engineering.
2. lttner, Edna. Phi Beta Kappa. Native of York, Neb. One of those
girls who is very prompt and thorough in everything she undertakes.
She would be a very good model for all Freshmen to follow who wish
to succeed as students. She expects to fill her position in the world by
teaching the timid young minds how to overcome difficult passages in
Latin without a pony.
3. Ballard, Clara Nlay. Reached Grafton, Neb., in 1882. Member of
Senior Basket Ball team. Thinks comfort is found only in the biologie
cal department. Her favorite amusement is watching for the Omaha

nomics. Ask no questions, please.

boys and girls in Germany one summer. Came to the University, where
she has been giving the professors points in history and German ever
since. Follows Fling explicitly in regard to conduct, except when she
5. Norton, J. V. Tall and lank, and debates like a kicking mule. He
can produce more briefs in an hour than Fogg can tear to pieces in
tive minutes, and anything more is useless. He works hard and al-
ways pulls a long face when you look at him. It is even chances he is
6. Peters, Guy M. Al. jolly good fellow. Has many ambitions, all
tending to one ideally sublime end. This will be realized when he is
living not alone in a quiet, happy, little home of his own. The one
problem that has vexed him is "which shall it be?"
7. NlcDill, Alice. Phi Beta Kappa. An Iowa girl with a propensity
for hard work. 'Came to Nebraska and then went to Kansas to teach.
Came to the Uni to specialize in Latin and test the merits of a P. B. K.
Has earned a stand-in with the English department. An unselfish girl
with many friends.
S. Crane, Calvin. Came from Ashland, where he, the "cutest little
fellow," had innocently made inroads on many a girl's heart. His uni-
versity career has been full of hard and earnest work. He has been
electrician of the grounds for two years. Fat opportunities have al-
ready called him into a large field of usefulness in the East.

1. Senger, H. L. Born in Ashland. Has always been known as the

from the Schuyler high school, where she has a record of having at-

at Chicago, but the segregation idea has killed it.
5. Hamilton, Gay NI. Is by birth a Sucker, by trade a photographer,
by implication a student, by design a rnetallurgist, by aspiration a

tinct' personality has this man Hamilton.
A youth to all the modest co-eds dear.
Though much adored, 'tis never spoke. for fear.
6. Clark, Lucy NI. A Tecumseh girl with a fine class record. To a
confidential friend she confessed her belief that sweet smiles count
more on the professors record book than cerebral convolutions. She
courageously affirms that there is nothing so nice as teaching.
7. Griffith, Edna E. She is quiet and unassuming. Her strong point
is sonnets. She will Write you a barrelful to order, any style-frazzled,
stewed, or on the half shell. They should be faniousg but. not being
cursed with a romantic inception in the Writer, they lack a masculine
object and sink into the oblivion of all tender generalities. We take it.
then, she is better than she Writes.
S. Crabtree, C. May. Phi Beta Kappa. An eastern girl, so she says.
I-las natural affinity for book. hence captivates her instructors, espe-
cially one. Has taught school and declares a wish to continue in the

2. Fowler, Sadie. Phi Beta Kappa. ls one of the busiest, jolliest

she intends to teach only a "few" years.
3. Payne, Clarence Kennetn. His strong points are mathematics and
Greek, his Weakness an admiration for brunettes. He has recently be-

This is all we learned of this little lass.

thought Prof. Fling infallible, so returned to specialize in history. Never
had any tilts in the seminar room which were serious enough to cause
public discussion. Expects to teach, but does not say how long. His-
torical research makes people cautious about admissions.

souri. Grew up under the pleasant shades of "Grape-vine Roost." Grad-
uated from Red Oak high school in 1899 and began his strenuous life in

Sheldon. A lady friend characterized him as the handsornest man in
the class, with "black eyes with a wondrous, witching charm."
5. Barry, Joe D. Well, Joe, what can you say for yourself? Here you
have been wandering about this campus for I don't know how many
years, cutting up stiffs and all sorts of capers, making the poor student
laugh when he should be looking confidingly into the eyes of his prof
or brooding over his sorrows-and now the big, serious, solemncolly
world confronts you. Brace up, Joe, and be a man.
6. Hess, Edith. She has black hair and bright eyes, and you might
take her for a flirt if you didn't know better. She is always tagging
after her big sister or calling the boys names-and other nice things.
She was never seen to study, but can talk by the yard. Heaven rest
her soul-and tongue.
7. Ritchie, Chas. D. Alpha Theta ChiL A North Bend lad. Bright

semester. when, in the absence of Miss Blandin, misfortune claimed her
and she was elected class secretary.
2. Wead, E. Pearle. Comes from the large and easily distinguishable
tribe of the Omahas. They say she is a queer girl because she does her
own thinking. She is one of those most fortunate persons whom posi-

6. Cook, Florence Elizabeth. Phi Beta Kappa. VVas born in Omaha,
1881. She is a classical student. She has a sunny disposition and is
especially agreeable in crowds of two, where she has specialized. She

7. Margaret Spinney is a daisy.

1. Walling, Edith lVl. Y. VV. C. A. A native of Nebraska. Tall and
dignined. A conscientious student, but too modest by far. Is fitting
herself for a teacher, but excels in housekeeping and devotion to those

who know her well are glad of the privilege and value her loyal friend-
2. Volck, Frank. No one seems to know Where or when Frank Volclc

Uni band "Engineering" expresses his plans for the future.

HThey,', she says, expect to travel more in the fall. The "They,' we can
best appreciate through the interpretation of the spiritualistic and the

1. Hiltner, Walter. His chief ambitions are basket ball and zoo. He
plays basket ball by the grace of his legs, and assists in zoo by the
grace of Doc. Ward. In the former, he chases himself, and in the latter
he chases slimy bugs, but it all comes to one in the end. Between the
bugs and Ward, he is a ht subject for our sympathy.
2. Parsons, A. C. A Kansas product. Principal occupation is attend-
ing school. Graduate of Missouri State Normal. Tried Oklahoma Uni-
versity, then came to the Varsity. Says that the Phi Beta Kappas are
3. Kruse, A. A. One day he got lost in a Held called the campus.
Hopes to escape this year. Protracted study of a cycle bred the aspira-
tion to be a prince in the electrical universe. All else has been gradu-
ally given up to this persistent ambition. Success to him.
4. Ringer, Dean, Phi Kappa Psi.
Ringers a mighty good student, we are told,
A better fellow you will seldom find.
He has a largeness both of mind and mold,
That makes him popular with every kind,
With frat and barb, and with the non-descript,
Who walks with neither, and in society he's dipped.
5. Kimball, Geo. Pedro. Phi Gamma Delta. Named after King George
I, and Dom Pedro, of Brazil. When three years old he settled in Lincoln

Neb., in 1878. The next place where he attracted public notice was at

1. Craig, Clara. Born at Craig, Neb.. about 1880. A sweet, modest,
retiring girl, with blue eyes and fair hair. Ability would not hinder her
from being a school teacher--but she will not be. O. there is a mystery
about this fair and lovely creature with her sweet and gracious smile.
She hath much Wisdom and much power.
2. Shock, William A. Sigma Alpha Epsilon. Came here from Falls
City-a "Shock"-but during his stay at the University he has become
very much "Meeker," for now he is exceedingly modest and unassum-
ing. He has worked two years on the Nebraskan doing athletics in
society. He has also 'attained some accomplishment as a pianist, and
,goes back to live an independent life on the farm.
3. Ensign, Alice Baird. Came to Nebraska at the age of two years
from York state. When quite young she entered the State University,
where she has never been able to "llunk." As a solace for this lack of
a fully rounded education a P. B. K. rests upon her serene brow. But
-domestic science has claimed a share of her devoted attention. .
4. Richard, Frank Nl. Hails from Bloomington, Neb., whence he came
to graduate from the U. of N. Frank is a hustler, and when he under-
takes anything it usually goes through. He has been very active in
politics, having been identified with the Hayward Republican club since
its organization. He aspires to be a pedagogue, however, and no doubt
success will crown his efforts. .
5. Rice, Marguerite. Native of Central City, Neb. Entered the Uni-
versity to excel in Eng. Lit. and the classics. Devoted to Latin, and
pronounces European history a snap. Declares that she is preparing

cialized in botany, with chemistry and Zoology for recreation. Used an
auto to get a P. B. K.. Never talks in the classical library, but is not
silent in the laboratories, where boys are in a decided majority. Expects
to botanize in the Philippines, and of course there must be reasons for
8. Farney, James Rogy. Delta Tau Delta, Viking. Lives at Aurora,
but isn't to blame. Some think he is from Omaha, but not so. A suc-
cess as a military man, being at present Senior captain. He has had
charge of two Oflicers' hops and is chairman of the Senior Prom, which
speaks well for his good looks.
1. Nliller, Louise. She taught in Lincoln before entering the Univer-
sity, which she has finished in three years and a halt. Miss Miller reads
in the English Lit. department and uses red ink sparingly. She has
made a record in German and has literary aspirations, but has never
seen her name in print. "
2. Smith, R. Earl. Alpha Tau Omega. Reached Clinton, Iowa, August
31, 1879. Did the high school on New York Central time. Induced the
faculty to let him enter the University on probation. Loves to watch

vant. A cheerful little -body, full of endurance and patience. Her favor-
ite maxim is Ucultivate the faculty of shirking scientifically." She
aspires to Latin as a profession, but a certain law student has iiled a
4. Biggerstaff, Chas. D. It would take a bigger staff than the SENIOR
ANNUAL possesses to handle him. He is a bad customer. He slides
through everything the easiest way possible, and when he can't slide,
he goes on a skate and forgets all about it. Some one should jog his
memory and incite his ambition. Perhaps he needs to fall in love.
5. Wise, Cora Elizabeth. ls a native of Buckeye state. At the Uni.
she has specialized in German and history and is a model for behavior
in the seminar where she answers noisy associates with a nod and smile.
ln her master's thesis, she will apply historic method in proving her
descent from the "Wise Men of the East."
6. Catlin, Warren B. 1881. A typical Nebraska product. Entirely
speechless at birth, he has overcome all obstacles by an indomitable
will. His massive brow, dignified bearing, studious habits, quiet, unas-
suming manner easily marked him for P. B. K. honors. He will reform
the people by reforming the press.
7. Leonard, Walter Anderson. Born 1880, Essex, Iowa. Attended
Augustora college, Rock Island, lll. His philosophic mind needing more
room, he came to Nebraska and matriculated as a Junior. He is a can-
didate for the teachers certificate, but will probably study law at the
University of Chicago next yea1'.
8. Ellis, lnez.
She's one you must "look up toj'
VVith dimples and brown hair,
Tall and very slender.
She is a 'fmaiden fair."
But she's a maiden, quiet
And 'tis very hard to learn
Her hopes and aspirations
So there's no use in trying
Her history to tell,
'Twoulcl only be mere guess-work
VVhich you could do as well.

energy and industry shown in her work. And her future state I leave to
a later historian.
4. Spaf-ford, Erle G. Started at Aurora, Neb. At the age of seven

no special predilection for mathematics. He depends on his first name
for his fame and talks much in between, although you can never fathom
the deep purpose of his thought.
7. Tellesen, Charles Clyde. Born in Boscobel, Wis., 1876. President
of the Senior class and Palladian society. His tall, straight form at
once suggests a soldier in the Philippines. Universally admitted that

3. Long, Walter K. Though born in Pennsylvania, he passed his child-
hood and early manhood in Nebraska, and imbibed somewhat the

to the innltration of romantic ideas. He intends to be a doctor and is
'sure to be a good one.
4. Lipp, Frederick Nl. Delta Upsilon. Was born in 1881. He gradu-

the German department for a few hours extra credit by the way she
pronounced her name. She refuses to admit taking domestic science.

good common sense as well as book lore of the U, of N. type. She came

.and best of all, she is unconscious of it.
8. Doubt, Sarah L. Prepared for the University at the Lincoln high
school and Wesleyaii. The rigorous regime of the latter has been plainly
apparent in her university career, as it has made her thoroughly imper-
vious to the'wiles of the young gentlemen who haunt the botany lab.

3. Sowles, H. J. Phi Delta Theta. Has habits and manners peculiar

things in life-but one, They have retained their sunny dispositions
and hope they always will. They are twins and glad of it.

Fhe Zlniversitq of Nebraska
At the Cliff House in San Francisco one day a man stood gazing
down into the waters below him. He was suddenly confronted by
a stranger, who said heartily, :'You're from Nebraska!"
"How did you know P" asked the other.
"I could tell by the looks of you 3 T know a Nebraska man wher-
ever I see him. l'm from Custer countv mvself H and he held out

Nebraska possesses characteristics which distinguish her from
other states and from the rest of the world. This is true in all
phases of life, but especially is it shown in her great state school..
The University of Nebraska stands apart from other institutions-
of its kind as a distinct type surrounded by a peculiar atmosphere.
Those things which make the state individual make the school
so, too, for they grew up togetherg the pioneers of the one were
the pioneers of the other. There was a great, broad prairie, not
so long ago, with a few scattering groups of families upon itg men
and women who looked far away across the level reaches for a
neighbor's smoke, who battled against the strong winds and the-
fierce prairie fires, trying to make a servant of the untrained soil,
who shut tightly, deep in their hearts, the remembrance of vine-
covered cottage-homes in the East, and hung the old pictures on
the walls of the new sod house. After a time came the proud day
when they were made citizens of a state. Then before long the
cry went up for a great free school of higher learning. Their sons
and daughters should be given all sustenance to rear them for citi-
zens, to supply them with best equipment for service. It meant
the putting forth of a great effort, days of toil and sacrifice of rich
heart's blood. Pioneer days in the history of any state or nation
are the days of giant labor, like the days of old when men fought
with beasts on plain and cliff, and slew their foes because man and
beast could not live side by side, There are the difficulties to be
removed, and gigantic feats to be accomplished. The strength is
summoned to meet the need, and the strength comes, obedient. So
pioneer blood went into the forming of state and school, and carried
with it that which made good muscle and good sinew. Exercise
of strength brought return of strength, and growth was sure and
XVhile men were laying brick upon brick to build the school, the
men and women who had made it possible were working on the farms
or in the little towns. No man was rich, all were using brain and
brawn to make life and home, building for their children, those who
were to fill the school, an heritage better than gold.
Nebraska lies on the prairies. Prairie-breeding makes large,
many-sided souls. There are the wonderful wide breathing-spaces,
the vast outlook over the level sea of fields, the fresh, sweet breezes,
the strong, sweeping gales that make one healthy and vigorous,
and the beautiful bending blue of the sky. The prairie child is
brave, far-seeing, freedom-loving. It is an agricultural state and
one gets his living by honest toil in unison with nature. There is
no strict class distinction, no great mines nor factories where the
laborers assume one common character. In Nebraska there is room
for the self-life to grow, no man loses himself in the mass. The
days of labor and struggle against the foes to the products of the
fields, the uncertainty of harvests make men resourceful, sturdy,
energetic. They are sanguine, too, and careless of the future.
One year's failure but spurs them on to harder work and hope for
next year's bounty. Despair is cast aside. "To-morrow will be
better," they say, and eat to-dayls crust with smiles on their lips.
It is men like this whose sons and daughters come to get deeper
knowledge, and they are true children of their fathers. The stu-
dent brings with him to' his school-life those qualities which mark
out his father as a Nebraskan. Full of vigor, possessed of energy
and ambition in unbounded measure he sets before him a high goal
and puts forth his best to make it. The degree of self-reliance
shown by Nebraska boys and girls is perhaps unknown in any other
state. If the father shakes his head and says there is no way
for his son to go to school, the son throws back his head and says,
'Tll make a way." It may be years before he sees that way pre-
pared, but the work is done at last. Sometimes he comes from the
humblest home with a few coins in his pocket, a box of clothes, a
very mediocre intellect, perhaps, but equipped with an all-powerful
determination to do and to be, and before those strong young hands
and broad shoulders, that confident gleam in the eye, all things
must give way. Through patient yCa1'5 of daily menial S61-Vice and
late Slllfly OVC? lJOOkS at night, sometimes alternated with years of
absence in a country school, the youth comes up at last to manhood,
He may take an instructor's chair, enter the pulpit or the bar, or
go back to the store or the rows of corn-he has contributed to the
life of his Alma Mater, and she is proud of him. He will contribute
to the life of her state and country and they will be proud of him
and of the school. A boy who works with his hands that he may
add to his brain power, the girl who washes someone's dishes and
cares for sonieone's children between classes-those deserve all
honor. Wliatever their talents or lack of talents, their lives must
count, and when theseulives go out in turn with all mankind the
world must know it, feel it.
If the University of Nebraska has reason to be proud of her
students she has equal reason to be proud of those who sit in the
instructors' chairs. 'When the founders of the school back in the
years sent for men to come and teach the state they met with ready
responses. From the East the men came, from the rich, full East
to accept humble positions in the bare, raw VVest. Those men and
women have given their lives to build up the school, given them
willingly, gladly. For it they have put forth their best energy.
Wlien the world outside has recognized them and said, "Come up
higher, we'll give you honor and more gold," they have answered,
"No, T'll work here," and settled down into the old places, the old
work, content with the humbleness, asking nothing but the loyalty
of their students in return. They have grown into the institution,
become ,bone of its bone, flesh of its flesh. Their self-sacrifice shall
go down through future history, exerting a wide inliuence on all
who come in contact with it and realize its significance. It must
be that somewhere, some time, there will be higher places prepared
for those who spend and are spent and ask not again.
Nebraska lies midway between East and W'est. Her population
is a mixed one, the students come from many different sorts of
homes, with many sorts of inherited traditions, but all meet and
mingle and develop the distinctive Nebraska spirit that is neither
East nor TN est but has the breadth of mind, the generosity and un-
restraint of the one tempered by the influence of the culture and
refinement of the other.
True, the edges of the Nebraska character are a little rough as
yet, but the state is young, she has been busy growing up, the
polish will come with the years. More than all these things, per-
haps, is the spirit of democracy. Everywhere men know one an-
other. On the University campus poor meet with rich the cul-
tured with the untrained, the professor and the student, all meet
and mingle and form one whole.
'As every Nebraskan, from the naturalized German farmer to the
first statesman, loves his state, so every student, from Freshman to
Post-graduate, loves the University. Every day for months they
tread its walks and halls and sit in its class rooms, hid it a regret-
ful good-bye in the spring and return with enthusiasm in the fall.
XV hen the time comes to say a last good-bye all the dear associa-
tions of the years come back againg the old Main Hall seems to-
look down with a smile and a benedietion, and the student turns-
away with a tender memory in his heart which will endure through

Come, children, come, and when you see
Our wonderful menagerie
Of Professional bird and beast,
You'll be surprised, to say the least.
And though you'll fear, my timid child,
These animals so strange and Wild,
Yet, I am sure you'1l want to see
This Wonderful menagerie
From our own University.
Now, children, you are tired, I know,
And so I think 'tis time to go,
But come again and you shall see
The rest of our rnenagerie.
The rnouser gliding down the stair,
The peacock in the ofiice there,
And deep in figure, symbol, sign,
The mathernatic porcupine.
And thereis the crane so long and slender,
The gentle dove, so young and tender.
But come again some other time
And other animals We'll Hnd.
I'm sure youill yet be glad to see
This whole absurd menagerie,
And still more glad that it should be
In our own University.
A Hip-po-pot-a-mus we see,
But one that laughs good-naturedly.
Oh, hippo, freuudlich, genial, kind,
A better friend we'll never find- .

Should so attract us-please explain

An Eagle he is called. Yet words
But meagerly, I fear, reveal,
The awe and reverence we feel xy
When in this presence. Now we see
The hieroglyphics T and B,
Boxed R and I and signs unholy,
Revealed to students melancholy.
And what is Shakespeare? 'Who is he?

DEDICATION.-.AS the faculty have so often striven to fill an empty
place in a student's brain, so may they now.
Little Wfillie started out to see what kind of X the world was
made of. The X of early morning hung heavy and chill when
he climbed the steep X behind his house and set forth upon his
journey, carrying a X of chocolates for his noon lunch. He
had traveled some hours when a heavy rain set in, and he sought
shelter beneath a near-by X where a X was playing a squeal-
ing tune to pass the time. -
As the rain continued Xlfillie soon became hungry and suggested
to his companion that they investigate a second X near by, which
had a strong X X the door as well as a X. The companion
acquiesced, and the two soon found a small window in the rear,
from which W'illie's friend soon emerged with a X of fat ducks.
The two rascals proceeded to pluck these and soon had them as
clean as though a X had shaved them, ready to X.
At this instant, however, as the owner of the ducks appeared,
they were compelled to X them aside and take to their heels.
The owner gave X and would have caught Vlfillie had he not
become tangled in a X fence. Wfillie got clean away, but his
X face showed that he was scared. He went dancing home
over the hills and X, and when he came in sight of home you
should have heard him X his hands. For VVillie had drunk the
cup of experience to the X and wished to see no X of the

.9'ke 55 3. Yifs of 7903
Alas! Alaekl Those P. B. Kfs
How they do us e'er aniaze,
How quietly they hold their peace,
Afraid, I guess, they'll lose their keys.
They toil, they labor, early, late,
Up till midnight, up at eight,
Theylre wondrous wise and make us all
Into our holes desire to crawl.
But even though famed for wit,
ln fun they dabble not a bit,
But always back to work they plunge,
Absorbing, drinking like a sponge.
And when they from the Uni go
They'll love and honor it. I know
They'll glory scatter in their way
And e'er for it a good word say.
So here's to the P. B. Kfs of 1903!
May they live long, be happy, free,
And ever excelling leaders be
In knowledge, wit, and orivinalit
Thou silent, mystic, weird. and wonderful-
Vtfhat dreadful secret art thou hatching now?
VVhat seething broth of dreadful cogitation
Boils in the kettle of thy lofty hrow?
In thy dark lecture-room what sprites are roaming?
Vllhat mean the rustling sounds which there I hear?
'Tis but thy neophytes, thy maxim proving
'Who to fair wisdom fain would press more near.
Upon the bfdvent of 1611i 'Gmega
All gone to frat!
The cold,'unsympathetie sky
Bending above me as T vainly ery,
Heats only that-
All gone to frat!
All gone to frat!
Good Heavens! VVho's going next?
Let's preach a sermon, and select our text
All gone to frat.
All gone to frat.
My brethren, you may see
fAnd sisters toolj reading this homily
How these young hearts seek false felieity.
For they have gone and made a feminine frat
From which they prophecy a high degree
Of fun. Alas! My brethren, you shall see-
Vlfait till they've had a little feminine spat!
Good Lord, pray warn them it's not all a dream.
That this frat business ain't what it may seem-
And so fulfil our prayer, with this one theme,
All gone to frat.
All gone to frat!
So wailed the lonely Barb
Last of his race, without a single pard.
Ever, in the pale sunshine and roaring wind
Of February, his locks blown out behind,
He shouted still, a wild, avenging form
This one complaint above the loud-voiced storm,
.-Xll gone to frat!

To see them perched up in a window-sill,
All three intent upon a joke or pun,
Or else some other feminine foolish fun,
Your heart, be sure, would thrill.
Yea, when the somber shades of evening fell

In lighted alcoves they would still be ehattering,

There was no guile in their hearts that day.
Together they stooped o'er a crystal stream-
The sight below was a lovely dreamg
Two faces twin'cl in the mirror'd brook '
Wliere the sunlights over the pebbles shook.
Together they clung with enraptured gaze-
But suddenly Minnie sprang up in amaze.
"Good gracious!" she cried, "Are you Minnie or Mabel?
To tell the difference Fm not able.
O, are I you, or are you T?
Boo-hoo! I's not me. Tis a goin' to cry !"
The tear-flood came, but 'twas quick to pass,
For suddenly both the girls were aware of Cupid standing there
on the grass
VVith a smiling bow and a quizzical air.

bf true .9'ale of the Jfdventures of 'Garob iiins
and .Worfog in the :Sand of Unneb
ffeu to the Jituation-'Garcia Bins and -Wiorfog are University of Nebraska
9'rofessors. 'Gan't you guess the rest?
Once upon a time in the reign of the good Abdul Eban Drews
I. there did dwell in the land of Unneb, which being interpreted
meaneth the land of suckers, a great and mighty race. In deeds of
war they were brave and valiant, and did rarely cry craven, for
they were smooth and did ever know how to step out of the way
and let the solar plexus of the enemy land upon the other fellow.
They were the hot stuff and they themselves did know it.
Now there had been since time out of mind a certain chief of
one of the tribes of Unneb of the name of Carob Bins, who was
for many moons a centurion of the first rank in the clan of Wal
Wal. Although he was yet young and no carbuncles grew upon
his ins, he plied no task unadvisedly, for he did ever hold that
what is in haste produced goeth hastily to waste, and he was not
yet ready to pass in his checks and give up his graft.
And it came to pass that Carob Bins was called to a great task,
one which would indeed tax the powers of a lesser man, but Carob
Bins thought it as nothing. For he had heard in a dream from
Ali that the world was not well made, and that he himself was to
fix the gears and pour a little oil on that it might run the smoother.
And it was so.
And now was Carob Bins somewhat perplexed, and he did wrinkle
his brows and scratch his head until it was sore, but nothing did
come therefrom, for Ali had not told him where the gears of the
earth were to be found. And he wot not of his own knowledge,
which was passing strange for he was wise and learned in the laws.
But Carob Bins, being a true centurion of his clan, was not abashed,
neither was he greatly troubled, for he did know with reason that
it was simply a matter of time until the few things yet lacking
would come to him and he would know all things. So he called a
council of the wise men of thc land and all who did sit with them
in authority, and he spoke unto them saying in manner as follows:
"Oh, ve wiseacres, ye salt of the earth, ye who lie awake nights
scheming ways and means of beguiling others not so smooth as
you into admiration! Speak unto me, the wisest of ye all, and tell
me how I may add yet another term to the service of the footmen
under 1ne.'l Bor such did he consider to be the gears of the earth,
that being to his mind the most important of all things on the earth.
But they stuck their tongues out at him and told him to go to,
And anger fell upon the soul of Carob Bins and he was stirred
with wrath, yet he did not tell them so for they did each one have
a pull, and Carob Bins had yet many means upon the earth. :For
he did know that no porcupine may throw the same quill twieeg
and indeed the wise one throweth it not at all, but keepeth.it iuntil
it is seized upon which oft worketh grievously. And he gat him
forth and did search the writings of the scribes to find how the
gears of the earth might be oiled. And after a great time and he
had found it not, he did rave and rend his garments crying HI7ools.!
Fools! Vlfould that I might have the choosing of six men to write
all of the books, and that none else might do so." And Ali heard
his prayer and answered it, sending to him a man of strange c.oun+
tenanee saying "Behold here are three of them,-and Carob Bins
did know that he himself was the other three. And the man's name
was Mortog. And it was so.
And now did they lab-or and write many books until all were
tired, yet did Ali not tell them what they did wish to know. But
there was joy in their souls for they did each read his own books
and did know that they were well for they themselves had written
them. ' But they found not the gears of the earth. . ' .
And now did Carob Bins and Morfog hold converse between
them, and Carob Bins did say unto Mortog, 'Tell me, thou cen-
turion, wiser than all else but me, tellme how 'I may oil the gears
of the earth as Ali has told me in a dream I must. How may I
keep my warriors three years and enlarge my job ?" For so did
Carob Bins still think the gears might be oiled. , -
But Mortog answered nought but Eta Bed! Eta Bed! for he
was from a tar country and spake not the language of Carob Bins.
Now Morfog was not a Sucker, neither was he of the clan of VVal
Vtfal, but he was of the clan of Til-gne, whiclifbeing finterpreted
meaneth roasters, and he had an idea of his own about the,gearS
of the earth which was not the idea of Carob Bins. And git W3:S,SOr
And now was Carob Bins sorely vexed at -M01-fog, fQri,he,1iked
not to hear the strange words of which he knew not the meaning.
For Carob Bins did wish that if strange words were used he him-
self might use them. And he reproved Morfog after his custom,
saying, "You make me tired," and he sware at him saying Hdozeor-
donte," for no one knew a stranger word. And now did Morfog
become so angry that he did smite Carob Bins in the jaw, for al-
though he knew not what Carob Bins had said, yet did he think it
a most excellent place to get in his work, for a Til-gne letteth not a
good chance pass without driving a' nail in it. And he turned and
went his way. And Carob Bins arose but did not follow him, for
he knew not but that Morfog might slug him once more. And
Carob Bins went his way alone and tried in every manner whereof
he knew to keep his footmen for a longer 'term in his service. But
he could not, and despair fell upon his soul and he saw no good in
anything, -which is oft so with wise men. And then did men begin
to jeer at him and revile him and say all manner of evil against
him, and even his tootmen did josh him, which is a grievous thing
in the clan of Wfal VVal.
And he grew old, and his back was bowed with care, and his
hair was white and grief sat heavily upon the soul of Carob Bins.
And men did grin, for they knew not that the gears of the earth
needed fixing, for Ali had blinded their eyes. And after many days
Carob Bins lay him down and died. Not because he had to, but
because he wanted to see Ali and ask him about the gears of the
earth. Then would he come back. And it was so.
Now after a great time Morfog did once more appear, for he
had been lying low, thinking that the gears of the earth would come
to him if he did simply wait, for he did know that while patience
accomplishes its object, hurry hastes to its own ruin.
And Morfog did get him forth and call together the centurions
of Carob Bins and he did tell them that he would call them together
once more. And each time he did the same. And he did make
many writings which were all to the same end.-that he would yet
make more writings. And he did tack them in divers places where
they would be seen. And each day did he make more writings
which all bore the name of Morfog in large scrolls. And he did
verily believe that he was pouring oil on the gears of the earth.
And he did learn of other tribes in far lands which were all at
peace, and he did marshal his centurions and go forth and do
battle with them. And his war cry was Eta Bed! And since none
knew what it meant they did one and all think it good and they too
did cry Eta Bed!
And all tribes did turn in flight whene'er they did see the cen-
turions of Morfog and hear their awful cries. And they did so
until the suns of many days had passed and the dews had fallen
many times, and of enemies there were no more, for the centurions
of Morfog had cleaned them all out. And with each battle did the
shouts of Morfog become more lusty until when he returned to his
nation he was verily lonely and did know nothing but the one cry
of Eta Bed! And the peaceful denizens of the land were sore
afraid and did stare in awe at the capers of Morfog, for they did
not know that Morfog had found the gears of the earth, neither
did they know there were any gears of the earth. And they were
leaving the land in great numbers for they were scared.
Now it came to pass that Morfog did so rant and rave that he
did run and stick his head in a barrel,-and lo! it stuck fastg he
could not pull it out! And the peaceful denizens did come and
pour water in the barrel until he was dead, and there was great
rejoicing in the clan.
And thus were both Carob Bins and Morfog gone to Ali, and
Ali did receive them, and did take a wrench and unscrew their
heads,-and in one were the gears of the earth, and in the other an
oil can. And it was so.

ghis is the sorrowful otorq, told when the twilight fails
bind the monkeys walk together, holding each others' tails.
Wlien the medic awoke to the realization that he was among the
sti-ifs he was not at all surprised. He had always known that he
would have this dream, ever since Doctor Ward had approached
him with his bland smile and invited him to register in that delight-
ful medical school where all ways were peace and no conflicts should
be allowed. From that day his doom' was sealed. Possessing an
active imagination, which was jacked up to a quivering strain by
the delightful surprises of the new course, he dreamed only of
medics and their world. In his mind he drew pictures of fat police-
men storming impassive oak doorsg of stolen corpses hustled in
black, secret tunnelsg of monstrous, day-long labors in the dissect-
ing-room, when the smell of formole made the air blue and set the
walls spinning for dizzy eyes. To him the world was a walking
medic show. He saw the long-limbed, long-haired Stanley wander-
ing demented, seeking to reconcile his courses or kicking vocifer-
ously to Wa1'cl 5 he saw the excited Long and the calmly ministerial
Joe Berry dancing between psychology and the history of medicine
with a notebook in each handg and his soul turned to jelly within
And now he dreamed that he was a stiff. He was drowsily con-
scious that the room was cold-colder than the hollow dignity of
George Shedd or the small sarcasms of Freddie Clements. The
chill zinc table bit through his bandages and the ungodly smell of
the stiff-room smote him like the voice of Fogg.
Immediately he was aware of voices. From the next table there
came a muffled "Colder'n hell!" which utterance was instantly -fol-
lowed by a shriek from the corner, which the medic recognized as
belonging to the lady stiff from the poor farm.
"Sir," cried a shrill voice, "I demand an apology. Your speech
is worse than Fosters"
The medic turned his head and saw that the stifts were all sit-
ting up on their tables-nothing strange, for he remembered it was
a dream. The stiff next him, who had spoken first, was making a
polite, shivering bow in the direction of the lady.
"Madame," he said, "I speak the truth. I have just arrived.
One must lie practically to speak the truth spiritually, anyhow.
See Sherman's Princess, introduction, pages 9 and Io. I-Iowever,
there's no lying for any of us to-night. Do you realize that we've
got to chase clear over to the library ?"
"I move we cut the library out," grunted the stiff on the second
table, "it gives me the shivers to haunt it. That south alcove queers
me. It's full of strange whispers,- :Dear Lilianl' and 'G, Jimmie,
do you think so ?' and a lot of other stuff."
"That's nothing," replied the Hrst stiff, "the other night I had a
horrible scare. One of the alcoves was all ablaze and I thought
the night watch had caught me sure. VVhen I investigated I found
a spot where that man Payne had rested his head while looking for
a book. It was all a fiery, phosphorescent glow. It scared me
f'Same thing over in the armory the other night," said the second
stiff. "I met a strange combination-an army uniform stalking
ab-out, with the end of a red nose and a shiny bald head gleaming
above it. The rest was thin air. The creature seemed in great pain,
and as it walked it said, i
'I thought I knew my tic-tacs, but I guess I am no teacher,
I guess God rnust have meant me for a peripatetic preacher
For I can talk and talk an hour, and not say anything,
But I'll flunk those warty students if they don't learn, by jing! '
I-Ie kept going round and round, saying that pompously, till I got
tired and left."
"Speaking of whispers a while ago," put in the lady from the
poor farm, "all the alcoves in that there library are haunted in
some way by old love affairs. It's so interesting. Some of them
are cut clean in two, poor things, by the new shelves. There's one
inscription that reads 'I study Art for Art's sake' .You can hardly
read itg and right below is a piece of poetry. It says,
'I tried for the Bryan prize,
But not in the essay line,
And my heart is filled with
Sorrow and Raik-
For I didn't get there in time,
I didn't get there in time! '
Ain't that pathetic? That's suggestive, that there. That's a buried
"VVell, there's another thatls still pretty lively by the sound of
it," said the second stiff. "There's one alcove that's always shout-
ing out in a whisper, 'If you want to find the Chancellor follow a
nice lfValker,' and then the books rock on the shelves and the whole
alcove tee-hees like a girl with a secret. I
A'The history seminar is the fright, though. There is a regular
storm of whispers in there, and they're all feminine-all except one
that gets in edgewise at intervals. I often wonder who that one
poor masculine devil is, snowed under by all those girls. I-Us
"And the girls F" queried the lady stiff.
"Their name's Legionf, grunted the first stiff, who had been
There was a sarcastic 'Z-Xhem !" from the lady, and then a silence,
while the moon looked through the skylight and painted a square
of cold light on the cement floor. After a while the first stiff roused
himself with a short laugh which rattled his loose teeth cheer-
HI was up in Piper's office the other night. I was just inside
the door when I heard a voice say, 'O, Uncle Edwin, ccm't we study
here ?' and then 'Come on, Bess,' and then there was a pande-
monium of giggles and j abber that blew me right through the door.
Most undignified office I ever saw."
"That's nothingf' said the second stiff, 'fthe botany department's
worse yet. They had two assistants over there for a while that
ought to have been Hred or put in glass cases-they were demoral-
izing. Every time one of 'em wore a new ribbon, the masculine
part of the lab went crazy. The bashful, blue-eyed Freshmen kept
peeking over their microscopes, and the notebooks were full of
faces and poetry instead of protococcus. I saw them."
"Talk about demoralizingf' replied his companion, "did you ever
go over to the classical library. It's a regular feminine Vesuvius.
Wfhen you open the door therels just a confused roar of jabber and
tee-heeing and boot-heels tapping on the floor. There's two tall
girls named Ellis and another called Maxwell and a howling mob
of Others who keep things going. You can talk anything from
gossip to basket ball and be in the swim, but if a fellow tries to
study they throw him out. The only thing that comes up to it is
the history seminar."
"And tlzafs a fright," said the second stiff. "They're as choice
a collection of sassy rascals in there as ever came ashore from a
pirate sloop. Nobody can do a thing with them except Fling.
Fling swears by 'em, and calls 'em his 'Pets,' after Captain Kidd.
I-Ie says they'll do anything from scalping a brass monkey to throw-
ing VVyer out of the library, and I believe him."
4'Mercy !" quavered the lady stiff, "who's their leader ?"
"O," with a yawn, "Mrs Bates is the captain, and Lucindy
Loomis is her lieutenant. They start all the devilment. . They
haven't any control, though, and they have to call in Fling to help
'em, when the pace gets too fastf'
"Well!" The lady stiff heaved a sigh.
"That's dreadful. But then, the poor dears must have some
recreation. A little social gathering-"
"Like that English club," broke in the first stiff, getting down
from his table and stretching his arms, "a set of irresponsibles who
inflict their own productions on themselves and eat ice cream for
an antidote. They disturb my haunts in the art rooms on Saturday
nights. There's one consolation, though, they never get up there
without falling over that loving couple on the top landing. I never
knew them to miss a night.
"But this is getting tiresomef, he added, "let's have a dance and
move along. Turn on the lights."
Instantly a thousand tiny globules of blue light sprang into ex-
istence, dancing in gyrations through the blackness of the room,
bringing into fitful prominence the set, grinning faces of the stiffs
and throwing dim shadows in the corners. The first stiff seized a
hand of each of his companions and the three began to dance a
Bess Burruss-Iohnson-Cuscaden jig in the pale shaft of moonlight,
with the blue globules wavering about them and their bony feet
clicking merrily on the cement pavement. The medic would have
liked to see more g but he was tired of writing, so he lay back drow-
sily watching the dancing forms grow dimmer and hearing the
jigging feet more vaguely, until forgetfulness seized him and the
dream melted into sleep. Newrzfheless, he had had his revenge.

In 1872 was organized the Adelphian society. The Palladian
had been organized some time before, but its predominant member-
ship was of preparatory students. The motif in formation of the
Adelphian was to found a society whose membership should be
principally collegiate students, although preps were not debarred.
Later was organized a third society, which in 1879 was merged
with the Adelphian into the University Union, as the University
was not large enough then to warrant the three literary organiza-
Since that "union,', the society has prospered continuously. It
has ever fostered a democratic spirit, and has given enthusiastic
support to all student and university enterprises. In short, for
twenty-five years the University Union has exemplified the adage
"In fUnion, there is strength." And observing the benefits accru-
ing from this union its members heeded the precept and followed it
by the union of individuals. Searson and Miss Chappell are our
latest converts. So, too, when the great chief of the Delian clan
chose a wife, he came to the Union I-Iighlands, and carried her off,
a willing Prey. The basket ball team saw the necessity for keep-
ing up the established precedent, for its only foul was "Unions
'Arms Around., U This society further shows its domestic nature,
for whole families have their names on its membership roll as
Chappells, Maguires, and Meiers.
The society is at home Friday evenings in the hall from 8:30 till
the night watch makes his rounds, and always welcomes friends
The following are the Senior members:
James Molyneaux Ferguson.
Sylvia Imogene Finlay.
Elizabeth Ellen Meier.
Emma Nora Meier.

Nannie Vera Maughlin.
Susan Alice Sparks.

Tn the beginning a propitious light of promise greeted the infant
eyes of the Delian Literary society, and now her day-glow glim-
mers bright in vigorous prime. Her record, short yet, for she is
young, shows a history of high success, of work well done. The
Delian society each succeeding year has never yet failed to turn
out as her contingent to the graduating class a group of represen-
tative college men and women. Her contingent in the class of 'o3,
though not as large as she sometimes contributes, yet shows names
familiar and popular in the University. The unfavorable situation
of the society for they past few years, being without a home since
the establishment of the present law library, has necessitated the
most careful and arduous labors on the part of the members. The
struggle with these vicissitudes has made the society more firmly
founded than ever. The fruit of much labor is already apparent.
The members who honor the Delians as representatives in '03,
among whom is last semesters class president, are as follows:
Misses Edith Lathrop, Mabel I. Thomas, Margaret Contryman,
Messrs. Ralph I. Buck, Claude XV. Edgerton, Charles E. Teach,
Herman H. Lindeman, Cullen N. VV'right, and Alvin U. Gilbert.
Misses Lathrop and Contryman and Messrs. Buck and Lindeinan
have been honores as president of the society during 1902-og.

Jif1'. Editor- 1
Dear Sir-Since the receipt of your order, stating that I should
collect some information on Hfratsi' and fraternity life in the Uni-
versity of Nebraska, I have been carrying on investigations and I
now have the following to say in regard to the "Greeks" The
ground is difficult to cover and a large part of what I write is de-
rived from observations which I have been able to make. .
I am led to believe that a great many people have Wrong ideas of
fraternities and "frat" life, as, after spending some time among
them, I do not find them wholly bad. I
The actual date of their beginning is rather far in the past, too
far to easily trace. At that time it was supposed to be some mystic
power for driving out evil and setting an example to all who should
observe, but since then its function has been considerably changed.
It is diflicult 'to state just how the original Greek idea came to be
transformed, the result being an "organization of brothers," Welded
together for mutual admiration, and for the purpose of creating
Webstei' dehnes the fraternity as 'fa body of men associated for
works of mercy and devotion g" but from my wide observations I
am inclined to believe that most of the "mercy" and "devotion"
became lost, for such crops out so as to be more readily perceived,
mostly on dress occasions when it will do the most good.
For the last four nights I have been burning the midnight oil in
preparation for a party to be given by one of these "frats" in honor
of an esteemed member recently returned from a trip to "Have-
lockf' Eighteen of these noble brothers and sisterhoods will be
representedand I am instructed to memorize the whole list so that
I may know the difference between a girl who wears a Kappa Nu
Chi Gamma pin and a man with a Gamma Chi Nu Kappa emblem
over his hfth rib and two inches to the left of his aesophagusi All
this is necessary before I can secure a dance with a "fair fraulein"
who wears most of her gown on the Hoor and very little about the
But this is vanity. I am unable to speak to any great extent on
the rushing season in particular because of having arrived too late
upon the scene to observe the efforts of the Greeks and thecontor-
tions of the Freshmen victims as they were gathered 'in for ,inspec-
tion. Since that time I have been able, to make the following obser-
vations on frat men and women in general: . . .
The frat man generally starts his career soon after school opens
in the' fall. During the rushing season he is bandied about from
one organization to the other, each in their turnjstufling j him full,
of hot air about their national standing and the placethey occupy
in the hearts of the "co5eds." The frat- literature is brought out
and the new man is given a chance to "read up7' for himself. Each
f'gang" is the 'fbest on earth" and "without a peer," while the other
fellows are branded as a "lot of rummies" or a crowd of 'fsticksu
who won't be "congenial.', After being on inspection for a few
days, the man from the small town is given a "bid," and if his case
is forced with the proper 'fpull," he is pledged. Then comes the
period of probation, during which time the candidate is waiting
for the word from home, telling him that his pa has consented to
comply with the demands of the initiation fee and part with a few
To be a good and popular fraternity man, the individual should
equip himself with the following articles: one curved stemmed pipe,
one straight stemmed pipe, one rubber tobacco pouch, one good
wornout joke, one bank account, seventeen ounces of grey matter,
six varieties of graft, one running account with Don Cameron, one
Hbusinessu suit, one dress suit, one law suit, one fight with the hack-
man, and one drawer full of unpaid bills. Vlfith these provisions
he canlaunch himself into the 'fraternity world with reasonable
hopes of success. By proper manipulation he can elude his cred-
itors until after graduation and then he is supposed to elude them.
My short experience has not given me a clear insight into the
feminine department of this mysterious fraternity world, but so
far as T can learn the equipment of the sorority girl does not differ
materially from that of her "Greco-fraterof' She must, first of
all, have the use of one evening party gown, built upon the plans
above mentioned, one pleasant smile for each prof, two separate
and distinct faces, one for her sisters and another for her gentle-
men friends, several "pulls" with .the English literature depart-
ment, a taste for music and a good blazer on the 'ifamily tree."
VVith this array of "accomplishments" the sorority girl bids fair
to make a "hit" in university circles.
An attempt to describe the manner in which these exclusive peo-
ple live would only be an incentive for you to brand me as an "ex-
aggerator of fact and a fiend to fiction? Of course, my informa-
tion is only hearsay and should be fenced in with 'fquotsf' but I am
inclined to the belief that the facts prevail.
The frats have homes where they sleep, sometimes eat, and occa-
sionally indulge in a few minutes' recreation with a foreign lexi-
con. These go by the names of "lodges," "shanties," or "quarters,"
as the case may be. The culinary department feature has been
found to pay, although it is sometimes hard on the cook. The daily
program opens with a rough house by the Freshmen who have re-
tired early the evening before, and is followed by a volley of Latin-
ized expressions from the upper classmen who have been creating
hack bills for the benefit of the 'fold man's" pocketbook. The break-
fast table is the time for a discussion of the night's "doings," and
if nothing prevents, a member of the frat is delegated to represent
his brothers at one of the early morning classes, and the remainder
of the family stroll along to be in time for chapel-which is seldom
attended. Afternoons are divided between the library alcoves and
the bowling alleys, although I have heard the assertion made that
many fraternity men are brilliant students, and the results prove
the truth of the statement. After a six o'clock dinner, the early
hours of the evening are devoted to music and a few lines of enter-
tainment by the newly initiated Freshmen, and then the study period
begins. The rules are strict and observed according to Hoyle.
The house life of the young women does not vary materially
from that of the "sterner sex," with the exception of the 'fopen
housel' which occurs on Sunday afternoon and evening. The doors
are thrown open to the old men who "bring around" the Freshmen
and place them on dress parade. This event reminds one of a stock
show at the country fair, when the young animals are curried and
groomed and led out before the bleary-eyed judges for a "posi-
tion." Fortunate is the Freshman who can win a blue ribbon, for
he is cinched for a dress suit and a multitude of theater bills.

Q and R streets might be called the Greek quarters of Lincoln,
for eight fraternity houses are located there, all within four blocks
of one another. Kappa Kappa Gamma started their new chapter
house on North 16th street, surrounded by churches on all sides.
Many trials and troubles have been endured, but, bravely thinking
of the strength she is gaining to meet the larger battles of life, she
still continues to forgive the furnace boy and wrap up the water
pipes. Seven girls live in the house, and the frat prides itself on
the musical ability shown by the members. It is said that one often
arrives at the golden mile post of realization of the meaning of the
word education. To most Kappas this word alone will in after
years bring up dear sweet memories of "ye old fighting ground"
with its special heroes, the waffle shop, and the old library, with the
lion behind the bars. Although no dormitory system is being exer-
cised, the girls believe in the old motto "All comes to those who
Delta Upsilon has grown to be one of the leaders of fraternities
in school in point of active membership, having the names of twenty-
four men, with all their histories and marks of distinctions regis-
tered in the archives. The total membership is fifty-four.
At the beginning of the year the fraternity moved into a well-
equipped frat house nearer the University than previous quarters,
and the ,twenty-one men living there are perfectly satisfied with
their surroundings. It is understood that rules and regulations for-
bid any rough houses in the joint except in one specially appointed
room, where the furniture is of metal and the walls heavily cased
and the floor padded.
Twice as many new men were received into D. U. as there failed
members to return last fall to renew their work. Nebraska chapter
of Delta Upsilon has only been visited once during the past year in
having members take unto themselves the life of double blessed-
ness. The fraternity has been active during the past year special-
izing particularly in house parties.

The new sorority, Chi Omega, which cameto the University this
year, February 14, has such a short history, both nationally and
locally, that the correspondent of the Greeks for this book is not
able to manufacture either much "hot air" or "roasts.7'. The na-
tional fraternity itself is a typical example of what is done in the
VVest in the way of organization and growth, the fraternity count-
ing twelve chapters since its founding at Fayetteville, Arkansas, in

Beta Theta Pi, after a varying existence in the University, has
nnally become satisfied to live at a typical frat house on G-street.
Twelve of the twenty active members enjoy the privilege of run-
ning things to suit themselves at the chapter house, where many
delightful little "informals" have been given from time to time
this year. Eight of last year's number accidentally forgot to regis-
ter again this fall, so an equal number of various degrees of college
servitude were "bucked" in to take their places. Alpha Tau chap-
ter is flourishing and shining from time to time and may be ex-
pected to be in the future, providing nothing happens to upset the
nicely judged equilibrium. The chapter has a total membership of
one hundred and seven men, of which sixty are graduates, and
when the latter return they enjoy the pleasure of rising from the
slumbers and having breakfast without hunting up a restaurant
where there are union men.

ternity lost two of its older men through these means-in other
words, Ralph Drain has wedded Miss Jeannette Thorpe, of Lincoln.
Also Charles VVeeks has taken unto himself Miss Jennie Esther

Nebraska Beta chapter of Pi Beta Phi does not receive its many
callers at a fraternity house because the young ladies can not find
one to suit them, and also because of the large local membership.
The probabilities are that they will join the ranks of other C'Greeks"
next year as to this accommodation.
The total membership of the sorority is thirty-one, and the active
membership seventeen. Twelve new girls were put through the
rites and made worthy members of Pi Phi this year to take the

tember. Three initiations have been required to make these new

By investigation it is found that Phi Delta Theta has become so
attached to the house on T street during the past five years that it
can not get up heart to move away, and as the neighbors have not
sent in any recent complaints, it sees no reason for changing "quar-
ters." Their culinary department has long been the apple of their
eye, and this year twenty-two active men stretch their legs under
the mahogany and are willing to give place to the whole member-
ship of one hundred and twenty-one if necessary. The ranks of

After investigation of the history of Delta Gamma no reason can
be assigned why so many of these fair Greeks have been wedded
except for the fact of their individual and combined popularity.
These events themselves have shown the truth of the statement. t

Since last year three of the fair members of the Thetas have
joined the throng of those who practice real domestic science. The
total membership of Rho chapter is sixty-nine and forty-twowere
present at the annual banquet. Kappa Alpha Theta has the honor
of getting another P. B. K. this year.
Alpha Epsilon chapter of Sigma Chi has lived in the same place-
for ive years, not having the heart to "tear away." Twelve of the
sixteen active members End a pleasant home there. The local chap-
ter's total membership is one hundred and ten.
.Sigma Chi has specialized in several lines this year, including
dinner parties for a "select few," bowling, and bench work. Some-
college work has been thrown in to vary the monotony, and it is
rumored that some of the members graduate this year.
Three men who made their presence known at the University
last year did not register last fall, and live men have therefore worn
old gold and blue and then been taken into the "inner sanc,tum."'
The fraternity follows out the idea of having a smaller member-
shiplthan many of the other frats at Nebraska. Many alumni have
received high recognition within recent months.

Phi Delta Phi is a composition of men who insist that they are
the coming generation and will make the world tremble at the
"bar." In other words, it is the "lawyer frat." Both "Greeks"
and "BarbsH are eligible to membership among this select few.
The fraternity specializes in f'law," Hgirlsf' and 'lwire pulling," and
succeeds equally well in all lines. By these means we find their
percentage larger than in other like organizations as to the mar-
riage of members. The members, on the other hand, merely affirm
that it is because they have came to years of discretion. The valid-
ity of this affirmation is debatable, however.
The total membership of the fraternity is one hundred and twenty-
iive and the active enrolment twenty. From time to time the frat
pulls in another recruit. The Phi Delta Phis have branched into
society a little more this year and have given delightful parties.
Sigma Jtlpka 'Epsilon
Sigma Alpha Epsilon runs on time this year by being connected
electrically with the University bell system and the eighteen men
in the house are constantly reminded of their duties thereby. The
chapter house is the nearest one to the University and is probably
one of the completest for the purposes to which it is put of all the

The Sigma Alphs have dipped into several lines of college inter-
ests and have generally emerged without becoming "soaked"
Vlfhile a large number of the membership are younger men, it is
generally understood that the fraternity will furnish its quota of
graduates this Year.
The fraternity believes in training up the Freshmen in the way
they should go, and in breeding respect for upper classmen by
banishing them to a special table in the grill room built for their

Our honored and respected Dean who,
through two years of
earnestly inculcated the lessons of honesty
integrity, and has directed
with a vigilant eye and patient care the
building of our legal foundations,
this department is
1. Charles A. Kutcher was born in Colorado. He received most of his
education in his native state, spending some time in the C0101-ado A0-ri.
0ul'D111'a1 College preparing f 1' law. In 1900 he won the silver medal ir? an
oragorical contest in Colorado. In the spring of 1902 he represented
the University of Nebraska in an interstate debate with Colorado col-
lege, 'and his argument was a great factor in winning a decisive vic-
tory from that institution. He is known as the man with a voluminous
vocabulary. This exceptional ability won him a place as 'feditor in
chief" of the law department of the Senior Annual and president of the
Union Boys, Debating club, one of the strongest students' organizations
in the University.
2. Joseph Frederick Berggren, Phi Delta Phi, P. C., a good-natured
Viking of the "Sue" tribe, was born at Wahoo, Neb., in the late seven-
ties. As he was absent from home at the time, his recollections of his
nativity are scant. After a peaceful childhood, the merry little fellow
managed to graduate from the Wahoo high school. Once he aspired to
get on the Lincoln police force, but a chance to enter the University
Law School stultined that lofty aspiration. Has been uniformly suc-
cessful in running for the box ollice, this being the extent of his political
career. He is eccentric enough to tell the truth, is a regular attendant
at public worship, and is sometimes caught "looking down" on his
equals from the 'iheavenlyu heights. We predict for him a golden
future, lined with silver, and set with precious stones.
3. William Morrow. "Bill Morrow" surprised his parents on his birth-
day, April 10, 1874, by immediately entering upon a discussion of abstruse
philosophical problems and constitutional questions. This fact was in-
strumental in making him prominent in debating circles after he entered
the University of Nebraska, he having been president of the Delian De-
bating club, of the Debating Association, and of the Thompson club.
He is a skilful musician and can play "Nearer, My God to Thee"
on the harmonica in a Way that will bring tears to the eyes of his audi-
tors. He will practice somewhere in the state of Nebraska and will
specialize in Constitutional Law, unless he can file a lien on some fair
maiden, and then he will devote his time to Domestic Relations.
4. Lloyd Harrington NlcKillip, Phi Delta Phi, Beta Theta Pi, A. B.,
was born in Seward, Neb., January 21, 1879. His taste for the law was
early manifested in the disputes he used to have over marbles. His
construction of the rules was always accompanied by a willingness to
defend it. The history of his life is a recital of uniform success-the
reward of natural ability, coupled with never-ceasing application. As to
his relations with the girls, there are little reliable data, though damag-
ing hearsay evidence exists. In answer to questions on this point he
said, "I am a law student," leaving his biographer to draw the infer-
ence. It is predicted that his first "case" will be a serious one, involving
bread and butter for two, and extending on indefinitely with most happy
5. William ' NlcDonnell, a gentleman of Irish lineage, who had the
duties of corporate existence thrust upon him in the cold .winter of 1372,
is one of the very few men who enjoy the unique habit of attelldlng
strictly to his own business. He has gained a circle of friends pecu-
liarly his own in the law school, and as to his enemies let it sulice to
ask, "Where are they?" Mr. McDonnell will practice. His friends as-
sure him unbounded success, for there is no closer student than Mack
in the law school. All agree with him that he needs a partner W110 Will
offset his tendencies towards reserve and conservatism.
1. Oscar Edwin Johnson, Phi Delta Phi, was born April 2, 1878. "Lit-
tle Johnson," as he is popularly known, received his early education in
the Omaha public schools. We may be permitted to state that he is
very modest and reserved, and would like to add that he is bashful, but
have been specially requested by him not to do so. He is very ambi-
tious, and seriously regrets that a college degree could not have been
substituted for his four years' experience in a railroad oflice.
Johnson has specialized in torts and expects to prove that an infant
is not liable for his tortious acts. He has social aspirations and dates
his "coming out" from the Phi Delta Phi party.
2. Julius Weil was born at Brown Oak, Kan., December 24, 1881. He
says his nationality is German Ca tact which one would never suspect
from his appearancej. His undoubted ability to corner books, and his
readiness to blackball any one who will not comply with his iniiexible
rules won for him the esteem and confidence ot his constituents. When
called upon to recite, he is always prepared to state the facts in the
case. He says that he does not intend to practice law, as he fears that
it would corrupt his morals, but we predict that some day he will be-
come a prominent iigure among the money changers.
3. John Paul Everett, Phi Delta Phi, was born February 18, 1879, on
the Winnebago Reservation near Lyons, Neb. Having been reared among
the Indians, his dream is still of the happy hunting grounds, and to gain
his friendship one needs but refer to him as being a true sportsman.
But woe be to him who calls him a "sport" John, the delight of his
parents, after great persuasion on their part, was induced to quash his
desire for sportsmanship and direct his attentions toward statesman-
ship. He realizes, however, that he has undertaken an Herculean task.
4. Fern Samuel Baker. Now, there was a day when the sons of men
came to present themselves before "Robbie," that they might show
cause why they should enter the law school, and Baker came also among
them. And "Robbie" said unto Baker, "What is thy name and whence
comest thou?'i And he straightway made answer, "Fern Samuel Baker,
Hornwick, Iowag born October 17. 1877. My ancestry is a mixture
of Dutch, Irish, English." "Thou dost stand approved? This was the
very smallbeginning of our Very large Baker.
5. John James Ledwith was declared a public nuisance to the police
of Lincoln, March 20, 1877. He is a member of the Phi Delta Phi, Phi
Kappa Psi, and prominent among the "Woodie Doodiesf' After iinishing
the Lincoln high school he entered the University, graduating with the
degree of B. S. in 1900. John is very popular with all acquaintances and
takes an active part in University affairs. He was a member of the
Athletic Board, held several class oflices, and was one of the abductors
of the famous Sampson. His answers concerning love are evasiveg
which is probably due to his experience with the girls, who evade his
proposals. If you wish to read an 'fable and instructive" opinion, read
John's opinion in his justice case, which he is now endeavoring to have
incorporated in the Nebraska Reports.
6. Herbert West Barker was born July 6, 1876, in Nebraska. By occu-
pation a farmer, the business world claimed him at one time in the capac-
ity of a school teacher. while Uncle Sam called for his services as a
volunteer in the late war. Is a modest young man, a democrat in poli-
tics, and a gentleman at all times. Expects to practice law in the south.

1. Qharles A. Sather, a product of Denison, Iowa, where he first came
prominently before the public on March 5, 1877. His preliminary prep-
aration to the study of law he acquired as teacher and real estate agent,
followed by two years at Cornell college. That Sather is a good fellow
and student is evidenced by the fact that he has been twice elected
president of class organizations, being chosen to that position in this
class for the first semester of the senior year. Besides taking a front
rank as a student, Sather holds the honors of the class in the musical
world, ably filling one of the places on the University Glee club. He
hopes to acquire a vocabulary like Kutcher's, and then feels Certain of
success as a practitioner.
2. Barney Martin Stengle was born November 8, 1876, at Cleveland,
Ohio. In addition to coming from a state which has been represented
by other great men, Mr. Stengle has a sturdy stock of German and Bo-
hemian blood coursing in his veins. These physical endowments, cou-
pled with a marked perseverance, have made possible the Stengle of
-our law schoolg a sober, industrious student, always pleasant, accom-
modating, and kind-tending strictly to his own business.
3. J. Raymond NlcCarI, Phi Delta Phi, P. C., first made the nights
screech twenty-four years ago in a little town in Indiana, and he has
been of great interest to the public ever since. He received his early
education in the public schools of McCook and in Hastings college.
This little man began his promising career in the office of a prominent
attorney in his home town five years ago. But, in order that he will
not have to bear the stigma of being called an "office lawyer," and also
that he might get a few more letters added to his name, he concluded
that he had better secure a degree from the Nebraska Law School.
4. Clifton Seymore Wortman brought joy to the hearts of his parents
by his advent into the world May 31, 1877. He immediately began argu-
ing upon the silver question and has so continued till the present day.
After spending sixteen years in school, he condescended to accept the
principalship of schools at Laurel, Neb., and later filled a like position
at Hartington. He became weary of being a benedict and purchased a
ticket to the state of matrimony. Mr. Wortman will practice his pro-
fession in the West.
5. Edward Catlett Smith, born in Rockford, Ill., March 1, didn't remem-
ber what year. Is very modest and very little could be elicited regard-
ing himself. Probably relied on his fame to supply what information
was desired. Was mixed up in the Junior Annual scrap of 1901. Has
been attending school ever since he was born. Says he will practice
law, but it strikes his friends that the litigants in his locality will have
something to say about that. Ed has a good rating in the class, but a
better one with the girl behind the boy behind the "case"
6. Bruce Fleming. "An Irish soul in a German body." On July 20,
1878, "Booty" Fleming arrived at Missouri Valley, Iowa, to increase the
troubles of his parents. For twelve long years he attended the Missouri
Valley public school, graduating therefrom with high honors and a rich
Irish brogue. Nursing an ambition to become president of the United
States, he came to the University College of Law, where the ambition
died a natural death, Is noted for his great resemblance to McNish,
often confusing the instructors. Would like to join the volunteers, but
fears that McNish will get the credit for it. Notwithstanding his red
hair, "Booty" is well liked by his classmates, and there isnt a grain of
ill-humor in the whole of his 250 pounds of avoirdupois.

1. Jake Hilton Shank was born at Nelson, Neb., December 21, 1880.
He is a German-American. His father was a cabinet maker. Jake's
principal business has been going to school. His preparation for law
was a course in the high school at Nelson, where he graduated with
honors.. Although one of the youngest members of the class, he has the
reputation of being. one of the hardest and most consistent workers in
the Law School. His success as a practitioner is assured if he continues
to push his way through all obstacles in the future as he has while at-
tending the College of Law.
2. Clyde James Alden was born in Essex, Iowa, January 9, 1881. He
claims to be a crooked Yankee of a banker stock, and he also claims to
be a descendant of the renowned John and Priscilla Alden. Mr. Alden,
after nnisliing the high school, took a commercial course before enter-
ing the Law College. Although Mr. Alden did not get an even start
with other members of the class, entering the second term of the first
semester, he will not be behind Very many when the close of the year
3. John A. Patterson was born August 25, 1882, in Central City, Neb.
His father is a lawyer, who doubtless early impressed the beauties of
justice upon his hopeful son by the use of a barrel stave. At any rate,
John has taken up the profession of his father just as a younger brother
rejoices when the time comes for him to wear the outgrown pants of
his older brother. With industrious habits and modest disposition, he
complains little, but saws wood. Having sold bath tubs for some time,
he can truthfully say that he "comes into equity with clean hands."
He has the record of being the only man t?J in class who had the
audacity to get married. He is "followed by Peterson" on the roll,
though Peterson denies it. A good fellow and a loving husband.
4. William Franklin Bland was born in King City, Mo., May 5, 1874.
Traces his ancestry back by saying he is 'ftruly American." Attended
the university of Missouri two years, when an opportunity to travel pre-
sented itself, whereby the advantages of the U. of N. were discovered.
Has made a reputation for himself in the political world. Was presi-
dent of the Senior class '03 and once nominated a man for Congress.
Has been married three years, Lincoln, Neb., being his present home,
where he entered the business world as a member of the firm of Carey,
Bland, and Chase, a firm of rising lawyers. '
5. Roscoe Anderson, as near as he can remember, was born at Lewis,
Iowa, April 13, 1879. He has all the features of a Swede, but claims to
be an American of Irish descent. His early education was acquired in
a Sunday school which he attended regularly for Hfteen years. Roscoe
has exceptional abilities in handling money, and is known as the lucky
man of the class in betting on football games. He does not say so, but
we infer this habit was learned when he matched pennies belonging. to
the Sunday school while treasurer of that body. His aptness in playing
cribbage, together with what law he has learned, ought to insure him
rapid advancement wherever he locates.
6. Bill Boslaugh put in a special appearance in Castana. Iowa, June
13, 1881. After spending considerable time at Ames, Iowa. and Des
Moines college, he spent two years in the newspaper business. His
criticisms on the instructors are as follows: The dean relates too many
stories, Robbins spends too much time in pointing out the bluiide-rs ot
the supreme courtg XVilson cuts class periods too short: and Lobingier is
never on time. Mr. Boslaugh is an orator and debater of considerable
repute, as has been demonstrated before the Maxwell club and the pre-
liminary interstate debates.

1. Roy L. Pinkerton began to make things lively at his home in Tabor,
Iowa, May 16, 1875. His father was a doctor, and Roy early conceived
the idea that it would be a paying proposition to become an undertaker.
Here is undoubtedly quite a combination for reducing the world's popu-
lation. Although displaying great class interest at all times, he at-
tained great prominence in making the Whisker club a bristling success.
He is neither forward nor aggressive, but his friends find in him a re-
liable and efhcient adviser.
2. Fred "IVIaggie" Willoughby was born in Wisconsin in 1873, and has
kept his father busy chastising his disobedient son ever since. In his
early years the "Kids Moonlight Melon Maraudersn occupied most of
his time. At present there is no room for improvement morally, physi-
cally, or mentally in Fred, but a little improvement in a nnancial way
would not hurt him, he says. He is fond of ladies' company at all times,
except just before Christmas. Notwithstanding the fact that Fred pos-
sesses some peculiarities essentially his own, he is a great favorite
among both students and faculty.
3. Ralph Chase Roper was born May 1, 1876, at Sterling, Ill. He suc-
-ceeded some way in entering the. University, from which he graduated
in 1900. His greatest ambition is to hold office, but prior to his election
:as president of the Senior law class the only position of note he ever
held was as usher in a church-just what church, he does not say.
He is charged with being one of the principal actors in the
Sampson tragedy. And one who claims to be on the inside says
that Roper played the part of chasing the black cat down the alley back
of the Burr block. It is safe to say if Mr. Roper prosecutes his cases
with the same persistency he did his schemes at the University, his
-success as a lawyer is assured.
4. Fred Gustus Johnson originated at Dorchester, in Saline county,
Nebraska, about twenty-six years ago. Previous to coming to school
he profitably pursued the cattle raising business. ln 1901 he held a
high position in the state house, for, as he truthfully says, he went up
to the dome. Mr. Johnson has been a republican from his birth, and
hopes some day to represent his neighbors in the legislature. His un-
assuming, unostentatious manner and his honest, sober, and genuine
'disposition bespeak for him a life of usefulness.
5. Walter Fredrick Meier was born on a farm in Lancaster county,
Nebraska, in the autumn of 1879. After finishing the high school at
Crete, he entered the University. Three years were spent exclusively
in the academic department. Then Mr. Meier did what few other stu-
-dents before have done, he combined the last year of his academic work
with his law work, graduating from the academic department with the
'degree of A. B. He is now representing the University for the third
time in the interstate debates. He was a member of the debating club
-which went down and defeated the Missourians in the spring of 1902.
It was quite an honor to be a member of this team, as it was the first
time the Tigers met defeat at the hands of the Cornhuskers in an intel-
lectual contest. l
6. Albert Ross Amspoker is a native of the Hawkeye state. There
was much rejoicing in the Amspaker family on the 18th day of Novem-
ber, 1874, when Ross laid claim to an estate of tenancy in common.
He is very reticent concerning his qualifications and experiences, and
'says that most of his life has been devoted to killing timeg but this
we can scarcely believe, owing to the 'remarkable ability which he has
-exhibited in unraveling the kuotty problems of law. His aptness in
supplying the missing avermcnts has caused many a smile to flit over
the stern and austere features ol' Professor Lobingicr. Ross proudly
holds the office of 'Colonel ol' the Volunteers."

1. Fredrick A. Warren came to the University from South Dakota.
His immediate friends know him as the "Philosophy Doctor." About
the only subject that is at all interesting to him is to talk about some
one who has a Ph. D. degree. Prior to his coming to our law school he
was offered S40 per month just to attend the law school of South Dakota
university. This offer was rejected, and Nebraska was fortunate in
obtaining his services. The increase in attendants in the College of
Law this year and last year is attributed to the presence of the "Philoso-
2. Thomas F. Morrison was born somewhere in Missouri some time
in 1875. His early life was spent in teaching a country school consist-
ing of five pupils. After he taught the school two months, and the pupils
learned all he knew, he resigned as teacher and accepted a position as
traveling salesman. Later he attended the Kansas State Normal two
years and the Kansas University one year. Coming to the Nebraska
Law School last fall, he has since been filling his empty store rooms,
and dusting the contents of the full ones. He was third in drawing a
claim at the recent opening of the Cherokee Reservation in Oklahoma,
and will probably practice in that district.
3. Frederick August Hagelin, a youth of some thirty summers, iirst
found his way to the University of Nebraska in September, 1901. Mr.
Hagelin claims to have been born of Swedish parentage, August 28,
1873, but those who know say his looks belie his words, in that Ireland
is stamped upon his face. Be that as it may, Hagelin was resolved to
become a great jurist. He made only one mistake in his university
career. This was before Justice Sather's court. Mr. Hagelin's philoso-
phy is borrowed, in part, from the stoics and teachers-he believes the
end of all bitterness is woman. Frederick August will succeed wher-
ever he goes. .
4. Frank Elmer Crawford was born August 22, 1877, at Wyrnore, Neb.
As his father was justice of the peace, this accounts for Frank's ambi-
tion to sit on the supreme bench. He is not popular with the girls,
though with the boys his notoriety is most enviable. He distinguished
himself this year by successfully raising a crop of sideburns. We pre-
dict for Frank a future in which he will make his mark filling that
spacious room for improvement which he called attention to in the data
he furnished for his biography.
5. Robt. Lee ivlaxson was born at Burwell, Neb., January 5, 1880. He
is a mixture of Dutch, Irish, and English, and says he has not been able
as yet to figure out his exact nationality. Robert was in attendance at
the Chillicothe business college of Missouri before he entered the law
school here. He has made a model librarian. The height of Robert's
ambition is to fill the oflice of county attorney, and we are satisfied that
he will be successful, even though he does contend that "Osage hedges
are fruit trees."
6. Ralph Emerson Farquhar was born September 4, 1878, at West
Liberty, Iowa, and is a Scotch-American. Ralph, before he entered the
Nebraska Law College, attended the lda Grove, Iowa, school, and has
been engaged in general "grafting" Those who know of his work in
this line know that he has met with phenomenal success. Ralph is
unmarried, but says he is in love, and we know what that means, as he
weighs 202 pounds, has golden brown hair, an innocent face, and very
winning ways. He will locate in the West and no doubt in the course
of time will reach the height of his ambition and hold down the oilice
of "pocket sheriff."

1. Leroy Alfred Devoe was born near Madison, Wis., December 29,
1880, where the first sixteen years of his life were spent on a farm. He
early conceived the idea that farming afforded too narrow a sphere for
his ambition, and, in furtherance thereof, has spent most of his time
going to school. He is a graduate of Tobin college, Iowa, at which place
he at one time took second prize in an oratorical contest. During leisure
hours nothing pleases him more than an opportunity to exchange views
on true sportsmanship with our distinguished classmate sportsman, John
113. Everett. Leroy expects to practice law and go into politics in Okla-
2. Charles Edward Bruckrnan, born at Lowell, Ind., March 28, 1877, is
of German, Irish, and English descent, possibly a representative of the
entire map of Europe. -Received his early training at Grand Island col-
lege.. Is by occupation a farmer and by choice a school teacher. Has
made a special study of the table of estates in real property. Is a mem-
ber in good standing of the Hagelin volunteers, as well as having a
special property in the U. of N. law library. The following is from his
pen: "I'm a jolly good fellow, and it has been my desire to be friends
to all and assist any way I can to promote the best interests of the
3. Andrew Patrick Ivloran was born on a farm in Otoe county, Ne-
braska, November 30, 1873. The farming community is, indeed, well
represented in Mr. Moran, as he has a ine physique, and devotes him-
self to the law with a studious industry such as a vigorous son of a.
farmer is used to. Where he will practice after getting his sheepskin
he has not decided.
4. George Frederick Senner was born in Charleston, S. C., August 18,
1877. Is a descendant of the German empire. Present home is Fort
Dodge, Iowa, where he attended Fabin college four years. He served as
a sergeant in the 52d Ia. Vol. in the Spanish-American war. Belongs to
no society except the Maxwell club, in which he has gained an enviable
reputation as an orator. Is a modest and rather bashful fellow, but has
expressed a desire to enter the social world as soon as opportunity pre-
sents. His long suit is reciting equity, singing German national airs,
and acting as orderly in the law library. He expects to return to the-
south and practice law at Mobile, Ala.
5. Elias Allen Wright. . This phenomenal youth was born in Fremont,
Neb., October 28, 1878. Previous to entering the law school, he drank
of the fountain of knowledge at the Kearney high school, where he was
showered with honors, having wielded the wooden sword as captain of
the cadets and pushed the editorial pen of the high school paper. The
only ascribable reason why he has never run for oiiice is because he
never lived long enough in one place. Wright modestly confesses this.
"Would that I were engaged for love nigh drives me mad. Society of
men I count as naught, but the ladies! Ah, the ladies!" Wright does
not intend to practice law. Q
6. Arthur Watkins James was born in the latter part of the seventies.
at Shubert, Neb. Being of a quiet and unassuming disposition, is in-
clined more to thinking than talking, but is a close and painstaking
student. The fact that in bringing his case in the justice court, he first
filed his bill of particulars, afterwards amended it, but, before summons
was served upon the defendant, he withdrew the old petition and filed
a new one, correcting the errors, speak louder than words of the scrupu-
lous care and close attention which the client's interests will receive
who is so fortunate as to employ Mr. James.
1. Orlando Arthur Lemon, according to the family records, was dis-
covered in 1877 in the state of Nebraska. After completing his work in
the public schools, he entered Nebraska Wesleyan University, where he
studied for four years. Last year he attended the New York law school,
and distinguished. himself by receiving the prize for scholarship. Mr.
Lemon was one of the counsel in the famous Lillie murder case, and,
notwithstanding he remained in Lincoln during the trial, every point
of law he contended for was granted by the court. In athletics, Arthur
Orlando is a starp Coach Booth kept him on the "scrub teamn all year,
just to have someone who could show up the " 'Varsity team."
2. George Francis Dobler, dramatist, teacher, society man, and lawyer,
made his Hrst appearance in Vail, Iowa, October 13, 1878. His early life
was spent on his father's farm. He accepted the superintendency of a
district school and continued in this vocation for two years. He com-
menced his college career at Ames college, Iowa, where he entertained
the young ladies, amused the boys, and annoyed the professors for two
years. He thought it advisable to drop out of college and ascertain how
'much he knew and replenish his finances. ln order to make himself a
:sure winner, he decided to take a course in the Nebraska Law School.
Mr. Dobler has shown remarkable ability as a student in the law school.
3. Fred Estell Ptak, one of the good looking men in the class and a
future comedian, was born at Friend, Neb., March 18, 1881. During his
school days he gained recognition among his fellows by large feet, his
sleepy feeling in class, and his faculty of always being late. Some time
in his life he took a course in girlology at Dixon, Ill. When Fred has
not a date, you will find him reading an equity outline or waiting at the
ticket oiiice of the Oliver. He expects to specialize in divorces, and
thinks of going into partnership with Nuby at Friend.
4. Roscoe L. Wilhite, Uni Whisker Club. O11 March 9, 1880, The
Weekly Spieler of Sullivan, Ind., contained the following: "Born-To
our esteemed fellow citizens, Mr. and Mrs. Wilhite, a son. All parties
'doing as well as could be expected," etc. The nurse in attendance, after
examining him critically, pronounced him a 'fiine lad and prophesied that
some day he would be great. Some 22 years later, in a certain class in
procedure, an animated bunch of freckles, surmounted by a mop of au-
burn hair, was seen to rise, in response to its name, to an altitude of
six or eight feet, and, while the awestruck spectators listened with
mouths agape, there came rolling down the mellow cadence of one of
i'Lobby'S" procedure outlines, verbatim! !! That man was R. L. Wilhite,
and the nurse's prophecy had been fulfilled.
5. Patrick Joseph Donohue came into this world about the year 1875.
ls of unknown nationality, but of Quaker descent. Outside of his close
'associations with one "Morrow," says he is entirely void of bad habits.
Often gives talks to his fellow students on the advantages of using the
greatest discovery of the age, known as "Donohue's Hair Tonic." Has
been known to pass in recitations, unless ordered up by the professors.
Patrick is a member of the whiskers club, in good standing, a favorite
with the ladies, who have requested that we herein insert that he is an
all-around good fellow, and has a bright future in store. I
6. Allen Gilmore Burke, B. A., University of Nebraska, is of Scotch-
Irish descent, and was born in West Point, Neb., September 8,1 1877.
'The greater portion of his life has been spent in farming .and going to
school interchangeably. Having thus partially, if not entirely, worked
his way through school, he points with great pleasure to the B. Agre-
ceived in 1902. Allen admits that he has a keen fondness for the fairer
sexg does not deny being in love, but declares emphatically that-hens
not engaged. He says there are no events of any importance in his-life
which he cares to relate. He intends to practice law, but is undecided
.as to location.

1. D.. Leon Jouvenat was born in Rising City, Neb., August 1, 1880.
He claims membership in the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity, and also
the order of the Masons. Mr. Jouvenat has many friends in the city,
as well as in the University, which is the result of his good behavior
and friendly disposition. His work has been broken into, at times, by
sickness, but, notwithstanding this, his application has been faithful
and the results commendable. Every member of the class would turn
a glad ear to reports of his future success.
2. Edward A. Lundberg, Phi Delta Phi, was born in Chicago, Septem-
ber 4, 1875. It is reported that he was thought to be the Great Messiah
come to Chicago to correct the evil ways of that city. But later, when
he learned to swear like an expert, and was elected chief of the "Hogan's
Alley Gang," this delusion was quickly dispelled. The police records of
Chicago are full of accounts and descriptions of young Lundberg, he
having done everything within the category of juvenile offenses. Since
he came to Nebraska he has done a little better. Going to Sunday
school regularly, he succeeded in so far winning the confidence of the
people of his county that they elected him superintendent of the county
schools. He expects to practice where he is least known.
3. Arthur IVI. ,sforch iirst saw the light at Marysville, Mo., and has the
sunshine of,twenty-five summers locked in his Apollo curls. After gradu-
ating from 'the 'public schools, he attended Fremont college, and then
engaged in teaching. When the nation called for volunteers during the
Spanish-American war, young Starch obeyed the summons, and enlisted
as a high private in the 1st'Neb. Vol. In a short time, for gallantry dis-
played upon the battlefield, he was made a sergeant. It is said, upon
good authority, that he swam the Bag-Bag while Filipino bullets were
falling promiscuously around him, and was standing on the opposite
bank wringing his socks and drying his shirt before the idea occurred
to Colonel Funston to emulate the sergeant of the 1st Neb. Vol.
4. Stephen P. Jonas was born in Nebraska, January 4, 1881. He at-
tended the Kearney high school four years before entering the college
of law. Since entering the law school he has devoted every minute to
the preparation of his profession. He has his eyes on Oklahoma, and,
as he is a democrat, it looks very promising for him down there. How-
ever, no' matter where Steve goes, if he continues to work as he has
while at the law school, his success is assured.
5. Ray V. NlcGrew, Alpha Tau Omega, Phi Delta Phi, was born in
Wyoming, Iowa, on April 23, 1880, of Scotch-Irish parentage. Has grown
up in the banking business and has attended to the management of a
bank while pursuing his law studies. Graduated from the Bloomington,
Neb., high school in 1898. Is known to be a companion of McNish, al-
though both have attempted to keep it secret. McGrew is also charged
with being a member of the Peterson club, but as its membership is kept
a close secret, it is difficult to prove the charge. His eccentricities are
said to be his appreciation of "wine, women, and song." Mac will prac-
tice somewhere in the West.
6. Robert Clyde Martin originated somewhere on this old mundane
sphere. Just what place has the distinguished honor he did not disclose.
There is something mysterious about his past, and he refuses to di-
vulge any of it, except to say he had engaged in newspaper work. How-
ever, he does not state whether he acted in the capacity of devil or
editor. He claims to have attended the universities of Texas and Kan-
sas and came here from the latter state. His father is a lawyer, and
doubtless will be known as the father of Robert Clyde. Mr. Martin will
hang out his shingle in Texas. Notwithstanding his long hair, winch
curls up not unlike a d1'ake's tail, he is a debater, philosopher, and

. . . a'
brighter bit of humanity never gladdened the Emerald Isle more than
did Patrick James Carey when he was found in Leads county, Canada,
November 25, 1869. By dint of hard labor he rose until he was clerk of
the district court of Saunders county, Neb., and six foot five inches tall.
He also found time to raise two children. He was one of the "also-
rans" in the campaign for land commissioner of the state of Nebraska
in 1900. He is admired and respected by the entire class, and the final
decision of all class arguments is made by "asking Carey."
2. George Winfred France began to set the world ahre with his elo-
quence April 10, 1879, at York, Neb. His nationality is mixed, which
probably accounts for the fact that he is a Hgood Indian." His father
being a lawyer, France-easily .acquired the habit of looking wise when
in doubt on a question and of practicing the converse of the maxim "A
soft answer turneth away wrath." He advocates a system of phono-
graph lectures for the junior class, which shows that he is in the ad-
vance guards of the army of progress. He rooms with Burk, but Burk,
perhaps, don't want any one to know it, so we wonit mention it.
3. Cullen Norman Wright was born November 14, 1878, at Pacific
City, Iowa. This attenuated youth, of shy, bashful address also at-
tended the law school, and whenever his friends gave him a fair "shake"
so as not to crowd him out, Vvright had great sport. He was a great
ball player. He played tennis, and the phonograph, too. His calm,
phlegmatic temperament inet its true counterpart when Amspaker con-
sented to join him as partner in setting the pace for the volunteer band.
In baseball and tennis, as well as class work, 'Wright has a rating of A1.
4. Franklin Perry Majors became the son of the Hon. Tom Majors, of
"blue shirt" fame, in 1874. Says he is a Missourian by birth, and his
politics are naturally of a socialistic hue. Lobingier is his favorite Prof,
and his infatuation began with his study of equity. Majors is one of the
strong men of the class, and is a fellow with opinions of some value,
which he makes a practice of keeping to himself. The class would be
benefited "with a few more of the same sortf'
5. William J. Cain, born 1878, in Genoa, Neb., is the son of a successful
farmer, who evidently has succeeded in raising a "little Cain" as a side
issue to cattle raising. Will early began supporting himself by teach-
ing school, keeping books, and other pursuits. His experience as a
school teacher has given him rare training in appreciating C?J methods,
and it is with great concentration that he applies himself to the pursuit
of equitable knowledge from Professor Lobingier's outline method. He
is partial to University Place, but thinks he can induce her to accom-
pany him to Boise City, ld., where he intends to practice.
6. Fred Charles Foster dates back to 1880, and claims Lincoln for his
birthplace. He is a member of the Alpha Tau Omega and Phi Delta Phi
fraternities. Before beginning the study of law, he attended the Uni-
versity preparatory school for two years. Declining to furnish informa-
tion concerning himself, we criticise an unreasonable modesty which

n 1. William Kingsley Williams consented to mingle with humanity for
its betterment December 10, 1876, in Bradford county, Pa. His parents,
people of the hardy Welsh-English stock, finding the East too cramped
for the possibilities of their growing "1ittle,' son, moved out West and
t'Willie" was placed in the public schools of Cheyenne. No meager high
school training could suiiice for this swelling boyish spirit, and with the
first encouragement from the paternal side of the YVilliams home came
the possibility of class honors at Yale. Mr. Williams, associations with
the laws at U. of N. have brought to light a man who values thought,
silence, and scholarship.
2. Charles Wesley Potts, Alpha Tau Omega, took adverse possession
of the homestead on March 26, 1877, and thereupon gave notice to the
public of his existence and claims in a vociferous manner. This was in
Kirwin, Kas. He survived the mumps and measles and soon grew to be
a large boy in spite of the "swimming hole" and those ill-starred inva-
sions of melon patches. VI-Ie then sprouted an ambition to go to school,
and came to Nebraska. While attending the University, he was elected
president of the Freshman class, was mixed up in the famous Sombrero
scrap, and this year was appointed on the Senior play committee. Wis-
consin will be his field of practice.
3. Rufus Woods. The other one. "Look on this picture and then on
that," and see if you can tell which is the other. That is the way the
"Profs" feel when they call on one and the other answers. Since Rufus
is a ditto of Ralph, the events in the life of one need not be repeated in
the account of the other. When one fails to get his lesson and is called
upon to recite, the other answers to the call and saves him. Neither
one of them has an enemy in the class, which is due to the fact that
they study faithfully and tend strictly to their own business. '
4. Theodore John Hewitt, A. B., Phi Delta Phi, Phi Delta Theta,
loomed up over the Lexington, Neb., horizon, August 17, 1877. Made
short work of the Lexington high school, and then tackled the Uni.
of Nebraska, from the academic department, from which he emerged in
1901 with a brand new diploma that had never been used. Has been
business manager of the college paper, first lieutenant University Cadets,
manager track and basket ball team, and president Senior class of '01.
intends to break into the ranks of Lincoln's practicing attorneys, and
has purchased an axe with which to accomplish that end.
5. Jesse Clark NlcNish, a handsome youth of fine physique, began
celebrating the Fourth, July 5, 1878, at Wisner, Neb. His life has been
replete with activity. He claims membership in Kappa Sigma and Phi
Delta Phi fraternities, the Masons, Elks, and also the "Woodie Doodiesj'
the by-laws of which prohibit a man from falling in love and recom!
mends the society of gentlemen solely. Disregarding the requirements
of this worthy band, Jess has proven himself susceptible to the charms
of the "lair one," and he admits his infatuation. The subject of equity
afforded his legal mind the deepest interest and in his mastery of its
principles completely "covered" himself with glory. Mr. McNish will
engage in the real estate business, and get married.
G. Ralph Woods. Look at this one-doesn't he look like No. Il? They
look so .much alike that only one picture was taken and then dupli-
cated. They both surprised everybody at Surprise, Neb.. on the 17th
day of May. Now, you'1l guess it-they are the famous twins. As one
is thus the counterpart of the other, they are always together. They
have traveled extensively, having been three times to the Klondyk-e.
They have also seen Old Mexico, and have been in every county in
Nebraska. YVhere they will practice law is not decided.

-1. Everett Nlengo Swain, Alpha Tau Omega and Phi Delta Phi, put In
his appearance at Papillion, Neb., August 23, 1877. He took his A. B.
from the University in 1901 and immediately entered the law college.
Swain is a hustler, and hopes to do something before he dies. He plays,
and sings some. His theory of office-seeking is original. He believes in
raking in an oilice by pull instead of running for it. Swain intends
practicing law, but he is undecided just where he will hang out his
shingle. Wherever he goes his influence will be felt.
2. Hans Peter Peterson commenced playing with his toes in Chicago,
October 23, 1876. He is a member of the Sigma Chi and Phi Delta Phi
fraternities, and is quite prominent in social affairs. Last year he was
master of ceremonies of the "Pan Hellenic? Mr. Peterson has rare
musical talent, which has brought him many a time within direct range
of Cupidis arrows. However, his conquests and disappointments in this
direction have not spoiled him, for his spirit was always as buoyant as a
cork bobber on a cat-fish line-the girls could depress him, but he
wouldn't stay down. He expects to practice in Omaha, but as he has a.
very important Hcasew here in Lincoln, he will travel much and provide
terminal facilities to accommodate all affected.
3. A. La Nlont Chase was born at Portland, Me., about 1875. Spent
three years at State Normal, Peru, and three years at the U. of N., mak-
ing a good record at both places. His experiences in the business world
have been quite extensive, ranging from a rancher and real estate man
to the superintendent of schools. Mr. Chase is a member of the firm
of Carey, Bland, and Chase, who have already established for them-
selves an enviable reputation as a iirm of lawyers, all three being mem-
bers of the class of '03. Marriage is one of the problems solved by Mr.
Chase. With this problem out of his way, his success is assured. He
once said he expected to go to Congress, if time would permit him to
4. Oscar Alfred Torgerson, Phi Delta Phi, was born March 8, 1878, in
Wisner, Neb. After finishing the high school, he taught school for three
years with great success. He then came to the University and entered
the law school. It is said that "Torgie" is not entirely free from the
influence of "goo-goes," but at no time has this weakness, acquired as
it was by association with Reeder and McNish, ever interfered with his
law work. His devotion to his work has been unswerving. With a
judicial mind and a large capacity for work, his outlook is, indeed,
5. Prentis Earl Reeder, Kappa Sigma, Phi Delta Phi, and charter
member of P. C., was born June 8, 1878. He will secure his long looked-
for A. B. along with his LL. B. this spring. During his college course
he has been very popular. Making a specialty of baseball, he was cap-
tain of two winning teams. Prentis would do his best to forget the
past, if his friends would quit "knocking," in order to get out of Prof.
Lobingier's good graces and into the University social world. He has
a good, clear "bright" head which, along with his reputed grafting abil-
ity, will bring him within the notice of the legal telescope as a bright
6. William Joseph Birken, A. B., Phi Delta Phi, P. C., is the product
of parents who otherwise have nothing to be ashamed of. Avers that
he does not remember when he was born, which looks reasonable enough
when one stops to consider the enormous lapse of time since thathde-
plorable calamity. Graduated from the Leigh high school and U, ol N.
Has specialized in logic, and is great on argument. Applies the same
argument to all propositions, and, owing to long continued practice,
applies it very skilfully. ls in love most of the time, and has been en-

1. Walter lVl. Hopewell, Phi Gamma Delta, Phi Delta Phi, P. C., was
born December 25, 1881, in Tekamah, Neb. He has surprised his parents
by the way he lived and grew. It is reported that at the time this pic-
ture was taken his mother had little hopes of his living, but, to the sore
disappointment of the neighbors, he grew strong with painful rapidity.
As he used to steal cherries and watermelons and appropriated every-
thing in sight that wasn't nailed, his father was kept busy with the
shingle, and his mother did little else but follow after and cover up the
results with patches. I-le expects to practice in some town where no
record or tradition of his boyhood exists.
2. Frank J. Coad, Phi Gamma Delta, was born April 13, 1878, in Ripon,
VVis. In lieu of a regular picture, he gave us a picture of his early youth
that we might note the progress he has made. This picture was taken
just after he had told his father that he didn't know what he was talk-
ing about and had illustrated the point with a joke such as he now tells.
His folks thought he looked so cute in thus downing his father that his
picture, together with the incident, should be preserved to ever remind
them of their precocious child. As his youthful wisdom has not dimine
ished, his clients will be well served.
3- George W. Stuart was born February G, 1881, in Fairmont, Neb. It
takes no stretch' of the imagination to picture young Stuart in the days
of his long dresses. He had a voice like a fog-horn, a kicking propensity
that wrecked the strongest cradle his folks could buy. Many a night
his mother walked the floor with him just because he chose to cry to
hear the echo. They say that when he was but one year old he disputed
with his father on all debatable propositions and "called" every bet
within hearing. Later on he beat all the boys at tops and marbles by
enforcing the doctrine that might makes right, and pommeled the noses
of all who were skeptical of its truth or justice.
4. Sidney R. Roth, Kappa Sigma, was born May 12, 1878, in Rantoul,
Ill. As he failed to get his picture taken for the Annual, we succeeded
lwith his helpl in getting a likeness of his babyhood. It will be ob-
served. from the picture, that he is still addicted to a habit which he
formed when but a child. This picture was taken when his mother was
trying to teach him how to eat mush with a spoon. Having thus ac-
quired this habit during his first lessons in the nursery, he still continues
it. He is a bright student, when awakeg has a keen perception and a
clear head. And, with the assistance of an alarm clock, we feel assured
he will be a "wide-awake" lawyer.
5. Flavius W. Lambert, Phi Delta Phi, Phi Delta Theta, was born
August 10. 1876. Any one who knew him when the picture which ac-
companies this was taken could now pick him out of any crowd. He
has changed very little. The little dress with lace on the bottom, which
he then wore, he still keeps and cherishes. They say that he was as
pretty as Berry when a baby, and that the girls then caressed him on
all occasions. This explains in part why he longs for the days ot his
youth, and suffers the delusion' that he is growing less popular with the
girls because they no longer take the same liberties with him as they
used to do.
6. Frederick Samuel Berry was born March 15, 1879, in Sioux City.
Iowa. He was very pretty when a child, as his picture will show, and
his friends regret that nature has worked such a change in his looks.
He has laid away his bib and rattle-box. and now plays with legal prob-
lems instead. That small piping voice he used to get czaresses
has developed into eloquent tones, full ol? feeling and conviction. He is
still quite small, but when he asks the court for something. we feel
that he will get it as he used to when his mother was the solo judge ol'
his howling demands. -
John R. Berry was born in Marion, Iowa, January 5, 1872. He at-
tended the University in 1893, and then entered the employ of the B.
Kc M. railroad. After working for this company for about 'six years, he-
conceived the notion of studying law. John has been quite' unfortunate
while attending school through sickness, but nevertheless has been very
persevering. He has the grit and staying qualities which all admire.
Nirs. Mildred Leon Sutter, our popular "sister in law," is the imper-
sonation of all that is feminine and lovely in the class. Data concerning
her life are wanting, as she refused to be interviewed. We learn, how-
ever, that she spent several years in the University before entering the
law college, and that she represented the University in 1900 in an inter-
state debate with Kansas, and in 1901 she went to Colorado in the same
capacity. The only lady in the law class, she was sorely pressed with
suitors, whose nocturnal pleas for Ujoinder of causes" gave her excellent
drill in conducting cases. At last she waived her rights to the Junior
class and waved at a Senior who, when his suit was rejected by her'
sober judgment, carried his case upon writ of error to her heart, and
Bruce H. Grigsby, Phi Gamma Delta, was born November 9, 1881, in
Freeport, Ill. Bruce is one of the enthusiastic ball players of the class.
An industrious student, his class record is uniformly good. He is popu-
lar, not only in the class, but also in a social way, which is plainly evi-
denced by those conspicuous "promenades" and his frequent presence at
Lincoln's social functions. His present rating points to a successful
Harold C. Asthalter braved the March winds and came to the rescue-
of his parents March 22, 1880, in Muscatine, Iowa. His father be-
ing a manufacturer, young Asthalter was given all the advantages of
both the public schools and college. He attended the State University
of Iowa last year, but decided that every successful lawyer should have-
the Nebraska polish, and thus he cast his lot with the Cornhuskers.
Mr. Asthalter is a member of the Sigma Chi and Phi Delta Phi frater-
nities. As to where he will practice his profession he is undecided.
Claire R. Mudge was born in Burlington, Iowa, May 29, 1879. He be-
longs to the Phi Gamma Delta and Phi ,Delta Phi fraternities. As he
furnished very little data concerning his life, we indulge the presump-
tion that he has neither excited the attention of the police nor raised
any flurry in the Sunday school, but that he has always followed that
"even tenor" which has characterized him in the law school. ,
Warren Dwight Abbott, A. B., Phi Delta Phi, was born in 1878 in Clif-
ton, Ill. He comes of good stock, being a son of an American Methodist
minister. Warren early bore the ear marks of being a great man, both
from his prepossessing appearance and his precocious mind, so his father
decided that he should be a second Talmage. He was sent to Nebraska
Wesleyan University, where he took a four-years course in theology,
graduating with high honors. But since he has decided that it is more
profltable to gain much of this world's goods than to spend his life at-
tending to the wants of the spiritual man. Consequently.he is deter-
mined to become another Rufus Choate.

but doesntt know where.
Nearly every professor seems to assume and to act upon the
assumption that his particular branch of study is the most impor-
tant one in the University curriculum-the keystone of the arch.
And accordingly nearly every class that graduates naturally im-
agines itself to be the most brilliant constellation that ever shone
in the firmament of learning. Conscious of this propensity in stu-
dents to boast and to overrate their own importance, the law class
of 1903 rather chooses to quote the observations of others who,
from their honesty and Wide experience, are both unbiased and
competent to judge. The class lays no claim to all the cardinal
virtues, but to quote Dean Reese, "ln point of scholarship and gen-
eral conduct it was the best junior law class in the history of the
University." And says Prof. Robbins, "I have always said -that
this is the best class we ever had." This record is one of which
any class might justly be proud, and, indeed, no class ever put a
higher valuation upon, or appreciated more, a record of scholar-
ship such as this one carries.
On September 30, 1901, there assembled in the law class room
about eighty-five young men and one lady. Many were fresh from
other departments of the University, some were from the farm,
some from factories and stores g some were teachers from the pub-
lic schools, but all were Well grounded in the rudiments of learn-
ing, all were fired with burning ambitions, and nearly all, it may be
truly said, were typical, in vigor of mind and energy of body, of
the western man.
It was a solemn occasion when Professor Robbins called the first
roll. Awestruclc juniors held their breath While he announced in
abstruse fashion that the first term had begun. Here and there
could be seen a junior with outstretched neck and open mouth lis-
tening with all his soul for every syllable that fell, as the ancients
used to listen with unbounded faith to the oracles of Greece. Hav-
ing been told in brief what the law was, its origin, history, scope,
and purpose, the class was assigned its work, and the din and bus-
tle of the legal workshop commenced.
What a humorous recollection to look back upon the first case
study! As a young apprentice saws crookedly through a board,
pounds with the hammer his thumb, and cuts his lingers with the
chisel, so did each student flounder through a case with equal skill.
'iW'ho is appellee?" he would ask himself. "XWhoi appellant?"
"XNhere did this case come from and how did it get here ?'l "NVhat's
assumpsit ?" "Trespass on the case? NVhat's an interpleader? A
demurrer? Wfhat's a dictum, anyway ?" These and like mysteries
perplexed his brain and harrowed his patience. Each mixed the
facts of the case with facts of other cases therein cited and com-
pared, and seldom falied to get the dictum for the doctrine. And
then, with knocking knees, in class he had to read his case before a
strange crowd of students who were ever ready to laugh at the
grotesque and the ridiculous.
But soon that awkward edge of strangeness wore away. Each
preempted his seat, adjusted himself to the freakish traits of those
about him, ready at all times to mark and accentuate in others a
funny or painful face, a happy grin, an overdrawn ideal of Hdressu
or a lack of any ideal at all, or a prolyx, sleepy style of speech, at
the same time equally as unconscious of his own shortcomings that
helped to amuse the class. Then, too, common trials and tribula-
tions in the first case study made each feel toward the other as a
friend in trouble, a brother in misery, which feeling, indeed, shall
last as long as trouble afllicts the heart or the memory of it makes
men sympathetic. '
, The history of the class has not been as eventful as some that
have gone before it, except in the record it has made for scholar-
ship. No meteors have shot across the sky to blaze and then go out
forever. N o convulsions have taken place to shake the University
or excite the press. Nor have any bitter factions, with foaming
mouths and gnashing teeth, appeared to make strife and hatred.
The Hdogs of warn ,have slept peacefully at their chains. The
members of the class have spent their energies in diligent pursuit
of the law. Class elections, in fact, are the principal events worthy
The first election of class officers was very peaceful, with but a
ripple of excitement here and there to break the quiet. The honor
of unanimous choice for president fell upon E. M. Swain. As all
recognized order as the first law, a constitution and by-laws were
accordingly framed and adopted. This administration was as calm
and peaceful as the election and corresponded with the genial nature
and friendly disposition of its personnel. The commencement of
the second semester gave notice of the second election, which was
distinguished from the first by the prevalence of class politics.
This time the class was divided, two men were 'iboomedu and
nominated for president, and the election was spirited. Upon
counting the votes XY. TV. Bland was declared the choice, and all
was harmony again. Mr. Bland proved to be as good a president
as he was a student-energetic and faithful. As this official term
coincided with the second semester, its close indicated the comple-
tion of the first year's work and the beginning of vacation,-a pause
much needed to rest tired brains and recuperate sickly pocket-
Vacation soon expired, and when the class assembled again few
were found to have perished in the struggle for legal lightg nor
were strange faces many. Having studied substantive law, prin-
cipally, the previous year, the subjects of Pleading, Evidence, Rem-
edies, and Procedure were taken up, together with Equity and
other subjects. As these studies were fairly under way the political
augurs of the class whispered about in the halls and on the campus,
the presence of strange clouds, whose portent, they declared, was
the approach of a stormy election. As before, the same division of
the class occurred, and each faction mobilized its forces and put
forth its candidate. The campaign was vigorous and the count
was close, resulting in the election, by a small majority, of Mr.
Sather. Mr. Sather made the class a good president. Standing
well in scholarship, he was alive to the duties of his office, and
tried to make the induence of the class felt in University affairs.
The fourth and last election remains to be mentioned. Contrary to
the expectations of all, this election was the most peaceful of any,
and left after it the best feeling. For some time previous several
candidates competed for the honor, but at no time was the class
ever distracted by factional bitterness or personal animosity. The
palm was awarded R. C. Roper, and all agree that he well merited
the honor. ln Mr. Roper is combined the scholar, the orator, and
the gentleman. lWith the good will of all, the discharge of his
duties will be a pleasure to himself and a satisfaction to the class.
In respect to University sports, contests, and entertainments the
law class of 1903 has contributed more than its share. Represent-
ing, numerically, but S5 out of 2,500 students attending the Uni-
versity, it furnished one member of the football team and one mem-
ber of the baseball team of TQO2, two of the nine interstate debaters
of 1902, and three of the eleven in the dramatic club that played
David Garrick this year.
Faulty, indeed, would be this account of the class if it failed to
give aught touching the members of the faculty. To them is due
the hardest trials and some of the deepest pains of the class, but
to them the class owes in most part the prohciency it has thus far
attained, and the foundations its members have built for the future.
For our honored and beloved Dean the class holds the deepest ref
gard. Bereft of his life-companion in the beginning of our junior
year, we first met him with a cloud of sorrow about his brow. The
sun of his life had long since passed its meridian, and in his de-
clining years, when old age, full with honest purposes and noble
deeds, looks back upon a manhood distinguished for civic virtue in
the public service, he was cut off from the one who cheered and
sustained him in every hour of gloom, shared in his pleasures, and
-soothed his tribulations with the balm of genuine sympathy. But
with the fortitude that springs from wisdom he wept alone, hid his
sorrow from the world, and took up the instruction of the class in
whose welfare he has shown .such interest, and in whose future he
reposes such confident hopes.
F ew men ever got closer to the hearts of young men than Dean
Reese has to the class of 1903. An able instructor, a willing and
conscientious adviser, his memory holds in readiness an abundance
of clean, wholesome stories which, together with narratives of his
own rich experience, make the lectures and recitations always fresh
and interesting. But one service he did the class above all: he
held up to it an ideal manhood and directed the students to try to
realize it in the practice of the law. Conscious of the temptations
that the bar affords, and aware of the long melancholy train of
promising men that have succumbed to these temptations, he con-
stantly exhorted all to square their actions with the ideal he thus
set before them and admonished them ever to walk uprightly before
No small part of the legal equipment of the class comes from
the branches taught and the methods employed by Professor C. A.
Robbins. He has a keen analytical mind, and lays bare in his expo-
sition of a subject its entire anatomy. I-Ie delights in nice dis-
criminations and subtle distinctions in his presentation of the law,
but lays great stress upon the fundamental. In his thorough re-
views of every subject and emphasis of cardinal principles, he leaves
a subject thoroughly impressed upon the understanding and mem-
ory. Professor H. H. Wfilson is known among the students as a
legal philosopher, as he seldom gives a rule of law without giving
a reason for it. He is noted for making hard things clear and sim-
ple. Witli a keen sense of justice, he has won the good will of the
class by the fairness with which he conducts his work. The work
of Prof. C. A. Lobingier is characterized by diligent work andfcon-
scientiousness of purpose. His scholarly attainments are exhibited
in all his Work, and especially so in the scientific outlines he makes
of subjects difficult in themselves, and hitherto imperfectly organ-
ized. Space forbids an extended mention of all the faculty, suffice
it to say that the work of Professors Greene, Hatfield, and Cook
has been marked by the same ability and zeal and the same con-
scientious interest as those already mentioned. Altogether, the law
school has a faculty whose members are foremost among the prac-
titioners of the bar of the state, and whose reputation, it can be
said, ranks well among the best faculties of the country.
Though all of us are anxious to enter the field of practice, We
can not but regret that the end of our college course is approach-
ing. The closest ties of friendship have been formed among us,
and while separate interests have at times sprung up to shake the
unity of the class, upon the whole it has been cemented together
by a community of good feeling which has wiped away, in most
part, the lines of social distinction that have been the source of
such bitter feeling in other classes. Then, too, the study of the
law has become more and more interesting. NVe now see its unity,
its symmetry, and its beauty. Apprehending its purpose in secur-
ing life and liberty and promoting happiness among men, we now
can see its origin in the necessities of human association and can
trace its development through the centuries in harmony with the
universal scheme of human progress. XV e realize that our profes-
sion is a noble oneg says Blackstone, "lt is a science which distin-
guishes the criterions of right and wrong, which teaches to estab-
lish the one, and prevent, punish, or redress the other, which
employs in its theory the noblest faculties of the soul, and exerts in
its practice the cardinal virtues of the heartfl
It is to be hoped, then, that as the class of 1903 leaves the Uni-
versity no member thereof will ever be found to have so conducted
himself as to lower the public estimate of his chosen profession,
but rather that each shall add to its nobility and its luster by the
eminence of his scholarship, the purity of his purpose, and the
rectitude of conduct Dean Reese has so earnestly enjoined.

The Maxwell club, so far as the members of the present Senior
class in the College of Law can say, dates, like the common law,
from a time whereof the memory of man runneth not to the con-
trary. lfVhen we joined the little band of the disciples of Black-
stone, the Maxwell club had been long in existence and we hope it
may long continue to wield a beneficent influence over its members
and over the cause of debating in the University of Nebraska.
It is only of the recent history and the present condition of the
club that we purpose to speak. Early in the present school year
the club accepted a challenge by the Union Debating club to a joint
debate, and after a hard-fought argument the club's representatives
were declared victors by the judges.
The past two years, and particularly the present year, have been
a critical period in the history of the Maxwell club. The difficulties
under which it has labored are perhaps inherent in its situationg
and unavoidable. "The law is a jealous mistress," and it is per-
haps for that reason that her devotees in the University of Nebraska
do not find more time and inclination to woo the Goddess of De-
bate. Be that as it may, it is unfortunately true that insufncient
preparation has been the chief fault in our regular debates, and
the chief stumbling block in the progress, growth, and influence of
the Maxwell club.
The dimculties of the situation have appealed strongly to some
of the members of the club, and the result has been the introduction
of various innovations and experiments, directed to the end of ren-
dering the meetings more pleasant and profitable and thereby pro-
moting interest in the club and in debating among the students of
the College of Law. The result of this movement has been an in-
creasing tendency to omit the valuable parliamentary drill, which
is most unfortunate. But we sincerely hope and believe that the
situation is not entirely hopeless, that the problems of the Maxwell
club will be successfully solved, and that in the future the club will
do better and better work for itself, for its members, for the College
of Law, and for the University.
VV. K. XVILLIAMS.
with Jpeeial Qlindinga of facts
It is suggested that R. C. Roper would make a first-class sewing
machine agent. His grandpa physiognomy would amuse the chil-
dren and disarm the mothers of suspicions, otherwise well grounded.
E. C. S'llI'Z-ff? ought to run some soda fountain or make divorce
his specialty. That warm, sunny smile of his would melt the solder
on the tiniest pericardium. And that prolyx discourse would sell
more "nut sundies" than a phonograph or perplex into consolation
more feminine brains than a study of Christian Science. Few men
can tell more made-to-order stories or serve them with a smoother
"hot tamally" grace than f'Easy."
Qur unassuming, unoffending Roth has evidently missed his call-
ing. Designed for a crack sleeper for some modern hypnotist, he
expects soon to put his wonderful qualities in use sleeping during
the long intervals between the calls of his Rip Van VV'inkle clients.
Roth is without an enemy, as he is always good when asleep, and
thus he is rarely bad. Wfhen some rude noise disturbs his sleep in
class he painfully cocks one eyeg then his soul gets up within, draws
its night shirt about it, and looks out to see who knocked. Sleep
on, kind friend, may ministering angels guard thee from alarm
It is a shame Mir. Ifl7iZhz'tc left the show business to study law.
He is a model in form-tall, graceful, and dignified. His town
will now have to seek some other gallant prince to lead the styles.
It is a sight long to be remembered to see Mr. Wfilheit rise majesti-
cally in class and recite. XfVith light tuxedo coat, low cut vest,
beautiful red and blue striped shirt, and bright blue tie, low Oxford
shoes set off with rich blue and red plaid hose, and large, full trousers
always creased and tasty, his dress is free from criticismf But
this is not the man. The true man appears in that deep, broad
smile interspersed with freckles and fringed with auburn hair,
which smile adorns his face and lights the room just as a recitation
in haec verba is commenced or finished. .
Swzizzcr, the inimitable,.was born evidently during times of con-
fusion, which left their marks upon him. He thinks, if this you
call it, like a whirlwind and speaks during the lull. His ideas are
rapid in forming and kaleidoscopic in variation, but easy to locate
with a directoryg A hard student, a political agitator, he has al-
ready eclipsed Mark Hannag and his political future is so bright
that it blinds the eye without a well-smoked glass. He advocates
the doctrine that thinking is a modern innovation and should be
suppressed. Accordingly he never reasons out a proposition that
might lead to several conclusions. He simply turns a Hip and then
pursues the direction that he faces upon lighting to his feet. Strange
to say, he sometimes strikes it right.
1UcNi'sIz, the impersonator of the beef trust, carries with him a
large corporeal hereditament-otherwise called the pride of alder-
men. His degree and station are a hard conundrum. 'We would
suggest that dressed in blue and with a "billy" in his hand he would
grace to perfection the corner of some street, or would make a
model guard of Hoganis alley. He burns the midnight oil-but
not at home. He would make a good farmer if he could learn to
milk. If the cow liked to kick and he wanted to quiet her by say-
ing, "S-oi! B-ss!" she would kick him to death in the intervals
between the syllables. He would make a good judge-of ping-
pong-or an ideal private secretary of the janitor.
Friend Reeder looms up in the class like a red tomato can. Wfith
that Haming top-knot he ought to shine at the bar as a legal light:
and if his eyes should fail, he could raise some 'freaders' to assist
him.. His career is promising, but we imagine that if his career
could be sued at law ten years from now there would be many a
breach of promise case. He makes a dent in the heart of every
girl he meets whose heart is tin. The girls say that when he pro-
poses his appeal would bring tears to the eyes-of a potato. First
in equity, nrst in love, and first in the regard of "Lobby"
And Cond! Marked and shelved as the latest edition of humor.
Who could forget that pose, that wrinkled brow, and contorted
face, that agony of soul, and that spontaneous wit pumped with a
rusty pump and turned loose with a droll escapement smearing
each word into the other. Coquettish as a girl, a face beaming
with innocence, the Lords prayer is thereon written. The fountain
of justice will run freely if he doesn't fall in and go to the bottom
with his Sunday school record hanging to his soul like a lead sinker.
llut his humorous law recitations might be used for cork hobbers
to keep him afloat. His recitations will go down in history. If all
men could pick the law from their fingers as "Codie lfVodie" does
cerebrum would be a superfluity and long fingers a necessity.
Ptak, of Friend, the home of freaks and Newby, is a jealous
emulator of Richard Mansfield. Graduating as a knowing appren-
tice of the Deering Binder Co., he would iit the station of a "spell
binder" to some freak side-show. As a junior he sat in the first
row in front of the Prof ready at all times with wise saws and
voluntary information. But since he has moved back by slow de-
grees, stopped in his declension only by the wall. His hand never
rises, his saws are dull, and legal information-nit. Wliat a bless-
ing the wall can stop this slow retreat! XV hat a shame for the law
to cheat the circus or the stage of this fair Romeo.
One must smile to see the name of D0lLOlZlLC, and laugh to see
the boy himself. They say that "Donnie,' can trace his pedigree
way back to the "Darwinian Theory" running wildg that he is the
culmination of the Irish race, and perhaps the end, as he seems to
have little hopes of successors. "Donnie" would do well to estab-
lish his office near O'Flanigan's Flats. All he would need to do
would be to start the problem of when the 20th century began and
he would have two or three hundred cases of assault and battery
and replevin of ears and noses. 'fDonnie" says he is studying law
"Fr to practice." If he will practice greater economy in the use
of "hair-vigor" he might get along in his profession without "swip-
ing pullets" from Mrs. Casey. He rnight avert starving, how-
ever, by marrying the daughter of Mrs. Hennessy-a vigorous girl
at the tub-and smoking "Mail Pouch" in a clay pipe instead of
"Duke's Mixtureu in a cob pipe, as he now does.

Gentlemen of the jury, I have talked to you two hours over this
replevin case. Now, in conclusion, as I stand here with uplifted
hands washed in the elixir of innocence and declare like Patrick
Henry, 'Give me liberty or give me death!" I appeal to your na-
tivity in the name of the Union which must be preserved, in the
name of your families and wives and children who must be pro-
tected from the ruthless hand of tyranny, and, above all, in the name
of liberty and equality and the freedom of the press which the
'Father of I-Iis Country' died, bled, and fought for, that this poor
man, who is a true Christian, and a grand old veterinary of the
Civil W'ar, may recover his hog."

Facls: Action to compel specific performance of contract to
marry. Plaintiff alleged good character and habits, angelic dispo-
sition, pecuniary responsibility, and winning of defendant's heart.
Defendant pleaded incapacity of plaintiff to SHG-ll07L comjms maui-
zfis, denied all facts alleged and set up a counter-claim for 380, S75
for board and S5 for coal oil burned. Plaintiff joined issue on
denial and in reply to counter-claim alleged that he stayed to meals
through implied requestg and that no coal oil was ever burned at
his request, either express or implied. Verdict for defendant.
Rule of Law: Wfhere the lady gives her hand in consideration
of a man, specific performance will not be granted where said con-
sideration proves to be a 'fdoodie woodief' Qbj Wfhen the gentle-
man stays to meals without request of the lady, and does not ek-

Senner: jones vs. McDonald, I4 Iowa, 186. Opinion by
This was a reaction for damages brought in by the defendant
against plaintiff because the defendant spoke bad words about a
citizen of a town, so plaintiff prosecutes him on the ground of re-
plevin to get back his good reputation and damages. Defendant
demurred to the answer on the ground that the words were true.
Plaintiff then professed and avoided and set up a counter action of
fraud. The question was Whether evidence was admissible to show
that defendant's reputation for truth and vivaeity was good.
J1zdg11zle1nf.' for plaintiff. '
Rule of La-ttf: Dying declarations of one who has been slandered
and died therefrom are not admissible unless part of the res gcsiafe.

'Sade of :Segal 2.gtkics::2evised
I. XfVhen you settle with your client take all his property, but
don't also take his shirt-unless you need it worse than he does.
2. If a man offers you S5 to lie, don't take it. Ask S6.
3. If a client asks you a legal question you can't answer, tell him
to come in to-morrow, that you are busy.
4. If you lose your case, tell your client that the law is wrong,
-or that the judge clidn't know the law, or that the other attorney
lied and cheated.
5. If you don't know much law, don't say much--look wise.
6. If your opposing attorney argues by talking much and saying
little, loud, get a megaphone and give the college yell.
7. If your client complains because your fee covered all the
property in dispute, offer consolation in the fact that the other fel-
low didn't get it.
8. Make your first client pay all your law school expenses, and
remind him that they were incurred for his benefit.
9. Donlt work-unless you have to.
Io. Don't commit champerty-unless times are dull.
II. Love your neighbor as yourself in proportion to what he hasg
and always be ready to relieve him of his burdens-if money wor-
ries him. A
12. Tap the rich, and write sentiments of sympathy for the poor.
13. Do your duty-but do the other fellow first. Do all this and
the Kingdom of Heaven is yours,-if you have the gall to ask for
it in fee simple.
