3,:K0fi init assfai K II ' ir r f eiir rarlrt auii (Irram Tacked in a frieze of pennants. Waved from a touring car, Draping Commencement platforms. Cheering debates afar, Or streaming from crowded bleaciiers To hearten a struggling team, Loved, familiar and lionored. We greet the Scarlet and Cream. But far from campus and cla?s-room By many a mile and year, The scattered sons of Nebraska Unite in a memory dear. In ottice or dingy conrt-room. In camp by forest or stream, A thousand hearts beat loyal . ' t sight of the Scarlet and Cream. Color of stainless valor, Color of prictiess truth ; Linked in a noble union They beckon our heedless youth. Pausing .imid the clamor Of men that cower and scheme, .• lkgiance full and faithful We swear to the Scarlet and Cream. The college graduate is strangely sensitive to the suhtle in- fluences that enrich mind and memory during the days of under- graduate life. Amid the difiicultics which are met m the world of affairs by all who live and fight to win, the tender recollections of student days are a bulwark against failure, a stimulus to per- sistent exertion, and ah inspiration to all honorable achievement. The 1908 CoRNiiusKER aspires to be the preserver of some of these memories. It records the progress of our . lma Mater from its infancy to the present day; for the college year of igoj-tS it presents in permanent form the victories which have made us proud and the defeats which have tested our mettle ; it senes to perpetuate those incidents which, though personal, grow more amusing with the passing of the davs : and finally it contains within its pages the faces of college friends and college foes who, when viewed through the softening influence of the years, will all be counted friends. These things have been the high inspira- tion of our toil. The result is before you in the form of the 1908 CoRMiLSKKK. The editors are not blind to the inadequacy of this result, for it has come into being amid adverse and .•some- times aggravating influences. With this in view, therefore, they neither shrink from nor fear the fair judgment of the men ind women of Nebraska. If this volume shall tend to preserve those memories an l tra- ditions which will ever deepen and intensify the love we bear for our Alma Mater: if. by recalling the scenes and friends of college days, it shall stir again within us, as we count the years, the ro- mance of the morning and the heyday of our youth, then to those who have toiled will come a feeling of keen satisfaction, and they will count themselves hitrhlv rewarded. aliia luihtmr uf the (Enrnbuskrr tB rcBprrtfitUy •biratrIl tn professor iCurtuB Ai rlnn -brnuau by thr claaara nf lailB au 1303 as a tokru nf tlirir rslrcm aut atimtrattnn Jlniffiianr iCiirtiui A rlml Iirnuau Neither lenglli uf clays nor ininilier of years in tliciiiselves prove lo lie vital factors in finding tlie snm total of the noble snd worthy living of any man. Hvcn what a man may intelleclnally achieve, if it is made to center about himself, will scarcely keep alive a memory of his existence. But if a man is possessed of the true scholar spirit and nobly diffuses his life for the spiritual interests of mankind, his days and years become radiant to those who have felt the inspiration of his per.sonality. When such a man shares the ripened fruits of a profound scholarship through many scholastic years, enabling a multitude of vounger minds to see with the spiritual eye and to know that individual seership is a reality, then, at times and seasons, voices full of gratitude and aifcc ' ion speak of the priceless value of his service. Such a man is Professor Lucius Adelno Sherman. The character and standing of the Uiii- versity of Nebraska have been shaped in a large measrre bv his work and influence. Professor Sherman ' s original work in the field of English literature and composition has attracted wide attention. He has contributed more than any other man in America to the development of an exact literary criticism. Through his influence teachers have been en- abled to see the vital importance of the objective study of literature. From him they have learned the secret of reaching the sensibilities of the less gifted as well as the more gifted minds. By simple, definite, and logical methods students are energized to first impressions of the literature in life and books, developed in the power of independent observation and judg- ment, and prepared to sec and interpret with increasing interest the spiritual aspects of en- vironment. Upon this superior foundation the superstructure of the knowledge of literary and linguistic history is erected. If the student does not ' ' csire to build such a superstructure he has an enduring foundation upon which he can safely construct out of the imperishable experiences of life, a noble habitation for the soul. The significance and value of such service can not be estimated. Professor Sherman prepared for Yale University at East Greenwich Seminary, Rhode Island, and Phillips . ' cademy, Andover, Massachusetts. In 1871 he received the A.B. degree and Phi Beta Kappa honors at Yale, and continuing his studies there in Greek and Sanscrit he received the Ph.D. degree in 187. ' ). From 1 73 to 1882 he was instructor in Greek in the Hopkins Grammar School, New Haven, Connecticut. Since 1SS2 he has been Profes.sor of English Language and Literature in the University of Nebraska. From 1SS7 to 19U1 he served as Dean of the College of Literature, Science and the . rts. Since inoi he has served as Dean of the Graduate .School.

People said paving was not necessary on this soil, where mud never formed. There v.ere no street cars, very few hacks, and still fewer carriages; of bicycles there were a few, but not an automobile, hen you went to the University you generally walked. If you had a carriage, or dnwe " Dobbin " in a buggy, you drove right up to the main (south) door of University Hall (then called the University), for that was long before the advent of the iron fence. A curving drive entered near the southwest corner and passing by the front door curved out into R street again near the southeast corner of the campus. There was not a board, brick, or stone walk on the campus. It was all right in dry weather, but in muddy weather it was difficult navigating. The grasses were stdl the wild species of the raw prairie, and the trees were mainly thrifty cotton- woods. The campus (then called the " grounds " ) was enclosed by a hedge, and when the gates became old and rickety, posts were set zigzag in the gateways to keep the cattle from wandering in. But the corner gates stood open, and through these the cows used to come in at will. For a time a man on T street regularly tethered his cows and horses on the north part of the campus, and was much grieved when finally told that he could not continue to do so. There was only one building — old University Hall. In the winter it wos warmed bv stoves. John Green kept these running, carrying up coal, and carry- ing down ashes. On cold days we huddled around the stoves and shivered through the recitations. If too cold we called John (Ireen. There were no electric bells in those davs, and so we literallv called him. In addition to all this. John (jreen mowed the campus, dug the flower beds, pruned the trees, made general repairs, drove the cows off the campus, and was the day and night policeman. As the children say. John Green was IT. Think of crowding a whole University into that old building. Hut after all it was not so great a feat. I have today more students in botany than were in the whole University, including the three-headed Medical College. . nd besides there was no room wasted in offices. There was not such a thing as an office, connected with the University. Even the Chancellor ' s desk was in a class-room, and as for the professors, if other classes came into their rooms they could go out into the hallways, or into the quiet of the library. Class-rooms were primarily for recitations, and not for professors " offices. Speaking of the librar . reminds me of the two small rooms (now numbers 202 and 203) on the second floor of L iiversity Hall where it was housed. Pro- alu ' u an •X ' nut fessor IKiwanl. wlni was tlu- firsi libranaii, lulls inc thai at first ' one ui these rooms was used for ilie library, it was open for only ?. few lioins a clay to students. L very professor, however, had a ke_ to the library, and went ni at wili, and drew books as he pleased. The attentlants were students, and they were not very busy of course. CJnce 1 suddenly step])ed into the room and iouiul the attendants en- gaged in the game of " toss ball. " using books for balls. (Jne ot these became an eminent professor, and the other is an equally eminent man in public life. The practice of carrying keys to the library continued mitil in the early ' 90s in spite of the protests of the librarian. Chancellor Canfield finally came before the Faculty and urged every one to give up his library key, setting forth manv good reasons for this request. How we all gripped our keys, each man saying to himself that it would be a long while before Iris ke s were returned, when the Chancellor took our breath away by cjuietlv remarking that we " might as well give up our keys, since the lock to the library had just been changed by the University carpenter. " We gave up our keys ! The department of chemistr)- and physics occupied rooms 102 and 103. and the rooms now used by the postoffice. The museum, with its pretty agates and its horribly stuffed wild cats and things, filled room 107, while the whole Medical College was housed in room 106. A little room went a long wa ' in those days, for the classes w ' ere small, rarely exceeding twenty or ihiity in number. .All work was in the forenoon, and excepting a few chemistry students, the campus was deserted in the afternoon. The old chapel was on the second and third floors of the north wing. The lower floor was seated with long wooden benches with very uncomtortabie backs. At the north end was a raised platform on which all the Faculty sat during daily prayers. Alidway in the room were two huge stoves, with long high pipes rising to the flues in the back of the room. The square gallery at the south end was seated with long benches with still more uncomfortable backs. The difference between that cheerless old chapel and the new Temple tlieater is typical of the changes that have taken place throughout the I ' niversity in a quarter of a centurx-. And yet the boys of that day had their fun and enjoyed the old room quite as fully as the young folks of today do the more elaborate conveniences provided for them. . bout this period some enterprise ( I think it was the college ])aper, Tlie Hesperian) was short of money and the boys had to " raise the wind " in some way. So they posted notices of an entertainment to be given in the chapel, but advised everybody to stay away " for if you come }ou ' ll be cheated. " .Always the advice was to stav awav. Of course the room was crowded — at ten cents a head ! For a time noises were heard behind the curtain bv the expectant but impatient audi- ence. Cat-calls and urgent demands to begin the show followed, and at last it was found that the actors had escaped down a ladder from a back window. The laugh was on the people who gave their dimes after due warning, but the enterprise was floated with the cash raised in this va}-. Speaking of offices, or rather the lack of them, there was first of all no finance office. Students paid their fees to the Chancellor in person, and got no receipts either! One of the teachers (Miss Smith) acted as Registrar, and during regis- tration week established herself temporarily in any convenient room, where she did her work unaided. There was no one to look after anything that had to he elirn anii IX ' nut 25 clone. 1 knew the Chancellor once to ask th professtjr of linglish literature to look after the building of a specimen case for one of the scientific departments. There was no telephone on the campus, ncr was there any mail service. There was no football, no basketball, no tennis courts, no athletic board, no gymnasium work, no glee club, no fraternities, no university yell, and yet the old days were not dull. There was fun, plenty of it, and rivalry and contests and occasional bitter feeling, too. just the same as today, and, what is better than pll that, there was a great deal of good hard work by the hoys who are now " making good " ' in many places in the State and in the Nation. The original charter of the Universit} ' . passed February 15, i8Cv_), provided for six colleges, namely, i, " a College of Ancient and Modern Literature, fathe- matics and the Natural Sciences ; 2, a College of Agriculture ; 3, a College of I-aw ; 4, a College of Medicine ; 5, a College of Practical Science, Civil Engineering, and lechanics ; 6, a College of Fine . rts. " Eight years later the second and fifth of these colleges were united into the Industrial College, the paragraph being changed so as to read: " i. a College of Literature, Science and Art; 3, an Indus- trial College, embracing agriculture, practical science, civil engineering, and me- chanics ; 3, a College of Law; 4, a College of Medicine ; 5, a College, of the Erne Arts. " The Regents have fully organized all but the last named, and have added the " Graduate School, " while very recently they have authorized a " College of Education. " For fully twenty years a preparatory department was maintained. The first college to open was that of " Ancient and iModern Literature. iSIath- ematics, and the Natural Sciences, " now called the " College of Literature, Science and Art. " It swung its doors open September 6, 1871. Coimting those in the preparatory department there were less than one hundred students present at the beginning of the year. The Faculty consisted of the Chancellor and three pro- fessors, who held the chairs of " ancient languages, " " English Titerature. " and " natural sciences. " A little later an instructor in " chemistry " was provided Who were these pioneers who taught the young Nebraskans of thirty-six years ago, and marked out the pathway over which have traveled hundreds of tutors, instructors, professors of many grades, and doctors of philosopihy ? There was first the scholarly and dignified Chancellor Benton who added the teaching of " mental and moral philosophy " to his other duties: then came Professor I ' lanley, the first classical teacher: Professor Dake. the teacher of English liteiature: Pro- fessor Aughey. the natural sciences ; while the first chemist was Instructor Dailey. Truly, that was the day of " settees, " as Oliver Wendell Ffolmes called them, rather than college " chairs. " The preparatorv department was practically an appendage of this College, and was usually called the " Latin School. " It received students from the country schools and prepared them for entrance to the College of Literature, Science and Art. It set the standard for the high schools of the State, and was maintained until they were able to do the work of preparing students for college. It laid spe- cial emphasis upon Latin. Greek, and mathematics, and gave an excellent training to its pupils. The hope on the part of University men that the high schools could be taught to do equally good work has been realized in but few places. It is still true that the LTniversity Latin School afforded the best training in secondary school subjects that has ever been reached in Nebraska, and while it was impos- -iTl ' LIBK KV FROM UNIVERSITV HALL LIBRARV FROM ADMINISTRATION lUlLniNf. LNIVERSITV HALL THE FAMrilAK APPROACH NEBRASKA HALL alnnt anil IX ' mu - sible to retain it as a part of the University, it was a distinct educational loss to the State when it was discontinued, liefore bidding iarewell to llie Latin School we may note the fact that it included in its faculty many instructors of marked ability, as Church, Ellen Smith (afterwards University Registrar), Bennett ( nf)w of Cornell), and Lees (our Professor of Greek). For many years the College of Literature, Science and Art manuainei! three courses of study, — the classical, the literary, and the scientific, each leading to its particular degree. In those ilays the conditions for admission were different for each course, so that if an applicant was rejected from the classical course, he might be accepted for the literary, or if he failed there he might squeeze into the scientific course. If, however, he was so poorly prepared as to fail of entrance to the scientific course there was always the opportunity open to him of getting into the Industrial College. In fact, it was nearly impossible to escape getting into the latter, anil naturally this low standarc ' reacted disastrously upon the Col- lege and its courses of study. For, after all, the students in this University re- spect and prefer the courses with high standards. For a long time it was the impression on the campus that this College was the University, and that the Industrial College was an apfiendage. In fact, the Regents themselves seem to have had rather hazy notions on this subject, for when I was elected to my present position, including the Deanship of the Indus- trial College, I was assured that I was " also a professor ir. the University. " Nearly twenty years ago the scientific course was transferred from the Col- lege of Literature, Science and .Art to the Industrial College, and about the same time it was decided to give but one degree in each college. During a considerable period there were from eighteen to twenty courses of study leading to the degree of A.B., and ten to a dozen leading to B.Sc, and then a little later came the period of free electives, which, with a little n:odification, is what we now have. When the Faculty committee brought in its report in favor of the elective system, the report was adopted by the literary Faculty, but when an licur or two later it was laid before the industrial Faculty it was rejected by a large majority. There were many fears that the Industrial College would soon have no students if it main- tained its regular prescribed courses of study in competition with the vei liljcral elective system of the other college. It was thought that students wanted the freedom of choice of studies .so much that they would not go into the prescribed courses, but this fear has been shown to be groundless. On the contrarv, the In- dustrial College has prospered and increased most rapidly in the number of its students. In the literary F ' aculty there is a growing feeling that the elective .sys- tem should be greatly restricted, at least by a considerable extension of the powers of advisers. A notable development of the College of Literature, Science and . rf has been its increasing feminization. Men are going into the sciences and their ap- plications in increasing numbers, and so are swarming into the Ir.dustrial College, while in this latter college there are fewer women year by vear. Thus while one college is becoming more and more a man ' s college, the other is ten:ling in the opposite direction. The establishment of strong courses in sociologv. political science, and economics should check this tendency by ofTering men opportunities for the studv of subjects which bear tlirectly upon their life work. I MECHANIC ARTS MALL MEMOfTIAL HALL HK ACK HALL CHEMI iTKV HI ILUING alirit anil ?fuui 29 As said above, there were at tirst two colleges, — Agriculture and L ' .ngiucer- ing,— where we now have the Imlustrial College. These were tuiiied in 1S7S. and before that time we had a regular College of Agriculture, wiih a dean i Thmnp- son) and several professors, i ' he first agiicultural students appeared in 1874, reachuig fifteen that year, and from that time to the present there have been stu- dents in agriculture. It is interesting to note that about thirty years ago the pres- ent Governor of Cuba (Hon. C. E. Magoon) was a student in the College of Agri- culture. In those early days there were more students in agricultiu ' e than in engineering: in fact, it was not until 1879 that any record occurs of engineering students. In the early days there was much prejudice against the Farm. It was almost inaccessible in muddy weather, and when reached it was an unattractive place. Few people ever visited it, and those who did generally denounced its manage- ment. There were many in and out of the University who advocated selling it outright. A prominent Nebraska daily paper called it a " rat hole " down which the people ' s money was being poured by the Regents. At one time a bill was pushed almost through the legislature providing for its sale, but fortunately at the last moment it was defeated, and from that date the Farm has taken on greater importance. It has become the prettiest place in the neighborhood of Lincoln, and ever body now takes his friends out to see it ; students like to have picnics there ; and alumni gather there annually to celebrate the days of long ago. There is no jeering now-a-days about the Farm. It is the most popular part of the Cni- versity, so far as the public is concerned. The School of Agriculture, which now annually enrolls about six hundred students in all, is the outgrowth of plans laid long ago in tlic early ears of the Universitv ' s history. It took long years of hard work to build up a jiopular school, but at last it is a firmly established part of the University. What Chancellor Ren- ton planned for more than thirty years ago has now become a reality through Chancellor Andrews ' insistence. And while all this growth in agriculture has been going - n, the engineer- ing side of the College has had an equally remarkable development. Little and " Bobbv " Owens worked hard in the early da_ s to build up a school of engineer- ing, and later were joined by Richards, Brooks, and Alorse. In 1891 the shops came, six years later Mechanic Arts Hall was built, and now we are to build a great Engineering Hall. There are today nearly six hundred engineering stu- dents on the campus where thirty years ago there were none. Looking at these two lines of development in the Industrial College one is moved to question whether the time is not near when it v ill be well to go back to the original charter, and restore the College of Agriculture, and the College of Etigineering. There is today very little if any connection between the two lines of work, and thev might as well be separated, as they were in the first charter of the Universitv. Another change, also, may soon be timely. In the development of the Industrial College it was necessary about twenty years ago to transfer the scientific course of study from the College of Literature, Science and .A,rt to the Industrial College. There it served its purpose, and helped to build up courses which were strong in the sciences and their applications. Perhaps we should re- store the scientific course to the college where it originated. This has been dis- SCHOOL OK MLSIL THE TEMPLE EXPEKIMENT BLILDING AT STATE FARM WOMAN ' S DORMITORY AT STATE FARM U-hrn anD l!Cuiu cussed of late by members of tbe facu ' .ties concerned lielher it will ix taken up seriously in the immediate future or deferred for some years is uncertain, but it is probable that when the Industrial College is again resolved into its two orig- inal colleges, the work in pure science will be returned to the College of Litera- ture, Science and Art. Few students of today know that the present College of .Mcfiicine i» the sec- ond to be established by the University. In 1883 the first College of Medicine was opened. It was a three-barreled affair, shooting out graduates from " regular, " " homeopathic, " and " eclectic " departments, atter a couple of short years of work. These departments were housed in room 106 of University Hall, and as may be imagined they " scrapped " somewdiat in their narrow quarters. This ear- lier college was sometimes regarded by the rest of the University as a sort of a joke. One morning in the fall term of ' 84 a great sign, — " Cash for Stiffs " — ap- peared on the roof of University Hall, a ghastly reminder to the community of the opening of work in the Medical College. After four fitful years of existence, the Regents abolished the college, and we worried along for fifteen years without a medical college. The establishment of the present strong College of Medicme is a matter of such recent history that it need not be repeated here. Suffice it to sav that it is now well established, and well sustained, and that its standards of admission and graduation have been made equal to those of the ;nedical colleges of the first class in the United States. But one thing more. We all like to take account of numbers. In tlie begin- ning, thirty-six years ago, there were less than a hundred students on the campus, while in the vear just closed the total enrolment was considerably more than three thousand. We grew slowly for the first half of the University ' s life. What a shout the students sent up in chapel in 1890 when the announcement was made that we " had passed the 500 mark. " How big and nnportant we felt. A vear later when Chancellor Canfield announced that he expected one thousand stu- dents bv 1895. and two thousand by 1900, most of us thought he was wild or crazy, but when these dates were reached we had more than the numbers he had named. On some accounts we have grown too fast. We are like the big boy who grows out of his clothes all around. He can not keep his garments large enough for his rapidlv growing body. So we grow faster in students than we do in means for housing and caring for them. iSislnni nf tbr (Tnllrrir nf ICmit William (Sraniirr Sasltu In the spring of 1891 the University had been going successftilly for twenty vears. Up to that time, however, it consisted only of the " College of Literature, Science, and the Arts, " and of the " Industrial School. " with its various branches. Several things now indicated that the time was ripe for starting the third great branch of instruction provided for in the University ' s organizing statute — a Col- lege of Law-.

Their voluntary organization was not quite satis- factory, and in the fall of 1889 a number of such students, under the leadership of T. S. Allen and V. F. Schwind. persuaded Mr. W. Henry Smith, then a new- comer here from Philadelphia, to organize what was called the " Central Law College. " Rooms were found for it in the llurr block. A prospectus was issued, of which we have been unable to procure a cop -, announcing lectures by many of the leading lawyers of the state, among whom Mr. H. H. Wilson, of the present Faculty, and Judge J. R. Webster were prominently active. The educational advantages of Lincoln, and the opportnnit) for hiuI incite- ments to legal study presented by her com-ts and libraries attracted the atten- tion of ambitious }-oung men in this and neighboring states. Mr. Smith ' s experi- ment showed their presence and neeils. The opportunity for the L ' niversity to advance along its appointed lines was recognized. A Faculty committee, of which Dr. George E. Howard was chairman and Professor Caldwell a member, reported in favor of a College of Law. The Lancaster County Bar Association sent a com- mittee to the Regents in its fa -or. At their June meeting in t8 jI. the organiza- tion was authorized. Following this, W. Henry Smith was appointed Dean ; Samuel ? Iaxwel!, Chief Justice of Nebraska, Lecturer on Code Pleading; Joseph R. Webster on Equity ; G. ' SI. Lambertson on Criminal Law, Literstate Commerce and Federal Jurisprudence; James ] L Woolworth on Definition and Contents of the Science of Jurisprudence ; Henry H. Wilson on Evidence ; Wm. H. JMunger on Domestic Relations ; John C. Cowin on Constitutional Law ; J L B. Reese on Real and Per- sonal Property ; and N. Z. Snell on Criminal Law. Classes were organized in the botany room of Nebraska Hall, but were ap- parently crowded out soon, and the work of the school was resumed in the Burr block, where Mr. Smith was previously located. Arrangements were somewhat chaotic during the first two years, and Mr. Smith ' s reliance upon lectures was not shared by all his associates in the school, nor by the Regents, particularly by Re- gent Estabrook and Chancellor Canfield. Mr Smith ' s students recall him as being especially interested in qtiestions of common law practice and pleading, and espe- cially full of references to " the rules of the Hilary Term. " It was in 1893, however that the school was placed on a working basis. Mr. Smith resigned, going to Denver to continue professional work there both as a teacher and a practitioner. Judge Reese became Dean of the College of Law, and the work went forward with sixtv-one students, among whose names we find C C. Marlav ' s. There was a reorganized Faculty depending upon text-book and case studv for fundamentals, with some additional lecturers: Judge Fawcett in Insur- ance, Judge Good on Liens, Judge W. E. Giffen on Wills, and Judge Irvine on Pleading. This was the beginning of the latter ' s work as a teacher, which he is now carrying on as Dean of the Cornell Law School. In 1894 ninety-three students enrolled. Elmer J. Burkett. John L. Sundean. and W. V. Hoagland among them. The catalogue this year boldly declares the school to be " past the stage of experiment. " The advantages are set forth of the school over the private office method of study for getting a mastery of the law, a • ■ abru aniJ Xmu tirm doctrine in tliosc tlays of both Dean Reese and Secretary Robbins, of v.hicli no one has yet learned of their repenting. In 1895 eighty-one students appeared on the roll. Xo change shows in thv ranks of the Faculty except the announcement that Mrs. Marv D. Manning rt-on!d give lessons in elocution and oratory to any law student so desiring. In 1896-97, James L. Green became lecturer on Medical Jurisjirudence. There were seventy- nine enrolled students. In 1897-98 there were 102 students. E. C. Ames. H. D. Bush, G. E. Hager. F. E. Hamer. T. F. Hamer. L. A. Ricketts. John A. McGuire. F. M. : Tie!en7, W. O. Meier, F. R. Sidles, and R. M. Thomp. ion appearing on the list. In 1898-99. the school had 118 students, among them F. ' . Bartos. H. . . Micr. and J. S. Dysart, of present Nebraska practitioners. Mr. Robbins shows up in this year ' s catalogue as Professor of T ' learling and Procedure. Dr. Roscoe Pound appears as Professor of Jurisprudence. Eigiiteen ninety-nine and nineteen hundred continued this organization, and added James H. IMcIntosh as lecturer on Federal Practice. Nineteen hundred and nineteen hundred one substituted Judge Charles S. Lobingier, now of Manila, for J. R. Webster as teacher of Equity. The students numbered i6r. Nineteen one and two went on with this organization, there being 164 students. In 1903 came a change once more. The University advanced to the fourth line of training which its organic law provides for by incorporatincr tlie Omaha Medical School much as it had once incorporated the Central Law School. The law school course was at the same time extended to three years, and Dr. Roscoe Pound was made Dean. His main assistants were Messrs. Robbins and Wilson, appearing on the catalogue as " Professors of Law. " Professor M. M. Fogg was to give, as needed, instruction in ■ ' Englisli writing and speaking. " Lectures were still given by distinguished lawyers of tlie state, but such lectures were not cata- logued, and no credits were to be gained by attending them. The method of case study was declared to be the main dependence for fundamental knowledge. Students were in no wise daunted by this program, for 182 registered that year. The next year, 1904, Mr. Cook went to the University of Missouri. He was succeeded by W. G. Hastings in his department of Equity and Constitutional Law. Mr. Ledwith took the classes in Justice I ' ractice and Conveyancing, which he still has. During that year, Mr. Robbins resigned. Mr. Costigan, who came with a record of successful work in Colorado law. was put in charge of Contracts, Mining Law. and Real Property. In 190(1 Dean Pound found the work of sup- plying instruction for the numerous classes required by the three-years course too much for him. and Professor George D. Avers was added to the te. ch ' ug force. In the summer of 1907 Dean Poiuid was induced by an augmented salarv to take a position in the Xnrthwestcrn Law School, formerly the Union College of Law, at Chicago, and Mr. Costigan became Dean. Mr. Conant. head of the law school at ' ashburn I ' niversitv of To]-)eka. was brought from that place to strengthen the corps of instructors. Though tlic entrance requirements in the last two years have been a-; higli as those of any department of the University, the number of students this vear is 183. The library, which had hardly begun in i8 ;3 and in i8 )7 comprised but two GEOLOGY LABORATORY PHYSICS LABORATORY CHEMISTRY LABORATORY PHYSICS LABORATORY BOTANY LABORATORY 36 (ihrii anil ' nut thousand volumes, has grown now to more than five lliousand volumes of seL-cted American and English reports and approved text-books. The eager use of these books and the increasing calls for study room in the library show that the need of facilities for legal learning in this community which were revealed by [r. Smith ' s Central Law School still exist, and have grown with that community ' s growth. The striking thing apparent through the brief chronicle permitted by present space has always been the close connection of the school with the profession, its working law-yers and judges, in the state. The number of former students now prominently identified with the business and professional life of the state is a mat- ter of pride to all W ' ho have been connected with it. It is not believed that later graduates, whose names are perforce omiUeil here, or the students now in attend- ance will prove any less worthy or less potent than their predecessors.

The College of Medicine of the University of Nebraska is a somewhat new institution as far as the University is concerned, but in itself it is not so, as its primary inception possibly antedates the founding of the University. The history, then, of the College of Medicine would be incomplete without that of the C maha Medical College, as it was known in the days of its maidenhood. Perhaps no one is better, or as well, qtialified to present to our readers the Omaha Medical College with its traditions than Dr. W. F. Milrov, and we incor- porate here the history of the college as it comes from his pen. THE O.M.Ml.X iL " DIC ' . I. COLLKGK In 1880 the project of establishing a medical college in Omaha had already been discussed for many years by the leading ])hysicians of the city. None of them had had any experience in this work, and all felt a degree of timidity ir undertaking it. Nevertheless it was detennined to make a beginning, and an announcement was made to the public, setting forth facts and the claims for the future of a school about to be opened in Omaha for the purpose of giving instruction in the science and art of medicine. This was called " The Nebraska School of " ledicine and Surgery. " The Faculty announced was as follow-s : R. C. Moore, lecturer on materia medica ; S. D. Mercer, lecturer on clinical surgery : V. H. Coffman. lecturer on practice of medicine : George B. .Xyrcs, lecturer on anatomy ; R. R. Livingston, lecturer on ])ractice of surgery ; J. C. Denise, lecturer on physiology ; P. S. Leiscn- IMMANUEL HOSPITAL SWEDISH HOSPITAL DOUGL.AS CO. HOSPITAL COLLEGE BUILUINC. IN OMAHA 38 alien anb IX ' nui ring, IcctiirLT on obstetrics ; A. S. von Mansfelde, lecturer on pathulotjy : and W. S. Gibbs, demonstrator of anatomy. So was the garniL-ni cnt according to the cloth. No one being available to teach the subject of chemistry, ratlier cons])icnous in all medical curricula of that day, it was omitted. There bemg little clinical ma- terial within reach in internal medicine, and the supply of cloth being exhau.sted, no chair of clinical metlicine was establi hed. The same things may be said of the various special subjects usually taught by separate chairs. It will be observed that nobody was " professor, " all were " lecturers. " It is interesting to note that in a medical college incorjiorateil as early as the spring of 1869 (the first in Nebraska) the faculty list included, of the names just enumerated, that of Moore, Mercer, Coffman, and Denise. That institution, ow- ing to various causes, never taught any medical students, but it would apix ' ar that the idea of establishing a medical school had been hibernating in Omaha for many a day. No claim to the dignity of a medical college was put forth by th ? new- school, either in name or in fact. It was not proposed to confer a degree. It was thought that persons after having devoted themselves to the course offered here for one or more years might be enabled to secure advanced standing in eastern colleges, and that as a matter of economy they would adopt such an arrangement. The third floor of the building now standing upon the southwest corner of Farnam and 13th streets, known as the Hellman block, w ' as rented, and there the work of the school was carried on. There was no provision in the laws of Nebraska for the supply of dissecting material to medical institutions. Such material this new school was obliged to have and did have, but how it was obtained deponent saith not. Inexperienced as they were, these teachers seem to have done fairlv good work. At any rate, at the close of the school in the spring, the students earnestly petitioned that a fully organized college be established in orckr that they mi.ght complete their course in Omaha. The Faculty was greatly encouraged since their most sanguine hopes had been realized. .Accordingly it was decided to advance. A compa ' n - was in- corporated. — the date of filing the .- " .rticles of incorporation being Jur.e 21. 1881. Did time permit, you would be interested in listening to some account of the manv and varied incidents and difficulties encountered by the management of the College during the period of infancy, when experience was small and precedent wanting. Perhaps the most alarming difficulty met with related to the standing of the College in St. Joseph Hospital. . s a sequel to an ancient professional feud it was discovered, when the first session was about to open, that the hospital staff would not ])ermit clinical instruction to be given in the hospital. appeared to be almost a death-blow to the enterprise. The difficulty was met by utilizing for hospital purposes a small house adjoining the hospital building, .and the fol- lowing year building an addition to the latter, which doubled ils capacitv. On October 17 a proposition was accepted, providing that Mr. Bnmncr give one lec- ture per w-eek in microscopy in lieu of his college fees while taking his medical course. Compare this with the extent of microscoiiic work required toilay. On November it. Dr. Ayres i resentcd the question of the coeducation of the sexes, the ladies having requested separate lectures in obstetrics. The following resolu- tion was passed: " Resolved, that no distinction be made by the professors m their teaching; on account of sex. and that the secretary be requested to s.t ipforni the ladv students. " NEBRASKA METHODIST HOSPITAL OPEKATIXG SCENE WISE MEMORIAL HOSPITAL OPERATING SCENE 40 (ibrii an •X ' aui There were thirty-five matriculates the first session of this CoUege. The grad- uating exercises were held at the College building wilii an entertainment the same evening at the W ' ithnell House. Eight persons were graduated. This brings us to the end of its first session. In considering its subsequent history permit me to call your attention first to its material afTairs. The first alter- ation to be noted occurred in 1886. In .May of that year a lot si. ty-six feet wide, situated at the northwest corner of 12th and Pacific streets, was purchaseil, and the building removed to that location. By an act of the city council in 1888. 12th street at this point was narrowed and the College enabled to increase the width of its lot to one hundred feet. In 1893 fifty feet of the eastern portion cf the present building, with the exception of the fourth story, was erected, and in iSgtj the building was completed to its present proportions. These several improve- ments were made as they became necessary to accommodate the growing needs of the College. At the solicitation of the College the legislature of 1882-83 passed an act de- signed to furnish material for dissection for medical colleges, but the application of the new law created so great a commotion in the town that for a number of years after its passage it was considered expedient to adhere to the ancient method. From the outset the sentiment governing the minds of those in control of the Omaha Medical College has been " Excelsior. " Ihe qualifications for entrance and the duration of the course have uniformly been in advance of most western medical schools. Students have always been encouraged to devote as nuicii time as possible to their medical education. On July 30, 1883, the following resolution was adopted by the board of trus- tees: " Resolved, that all students who present themselves for admission to the College shall be required to pass a creditable examination in English, except those who hold satisfactory certificates or diplomas from literary schools or colleges. " Very few schools in this country at the time this resolution was adopted paid any attention whatever to the literary attainments of their matriculates. Carlyle once remarked, " In every object there is inexhaustible meaning; the eye sees in it what the eye brings the aneans cf seeing. " What did the eyes of these men, the fathers of this school, " bring the means of seeing " ' in their offspring? The makers of human history have seldom seen the full results of their labors, nor was it possible for these men. a quarter-century ago, to do so. It is hardly possible that they hoped for financial gam from their enterprise. But in it they saw benefit to their profession in this region of ' he West, an honorable place for themselves in that profession, and through the work of the College personal growth in profes- sional attainment. Let us uncover to these men of laudable ambition and of courage v.ho through faith " brought the means of seeing " the significance of the task they had set for themselves. We congratulate them today on beholding the growth of their im- perfect product which gropingly and with perpetual struggle again. t tremendous odds they piloted on its way, refusing to recognize failure or to lower their stand- ards. Hardly could their eyes have brought the means of seeing liicir cherished object entering its second quarter-centennirm an integral part of one of the great- est universities of our lan l. and having won recogtiitiini throughout the land as a scientific institution of the highest order. We congratulate vou. gentlemen, and Sbrn mtti 5fflui 41 today our c cs sccui lu bu given the means of catching a new ghinpse of the inex- haustible meaning of your work. Time was when the Omaha Medical College, lil e ulher similar institutions, was able to otter the student e er_ thing comprised in the sum ot medical knowl- edge. That time exists no longer. So tremendously has the held of medical learn- ing expanded, within the lilctime of this school, that only the resources of a great University are adequate to cover it. By a process of perfectl}- natural evolution the Omaha Medical College has become annexed to the greater school, nicely tit- ting into and rounding out a corner that seemed to be awaiting it. Thus the state is enabled more perfectly to perform its proper function; thus the Omaha Medical College fulfils its destiny. Thus we know the College of ]Medicine to the time of its union with the Uni- versity of Nebraska. Since that time its history is simply that of the University. It now comprises two courses, one of four years leading to the degree of doctor of medicine and one of six years leading to a bachelor degree at the end of the fourth year and the medical degree at the completion of the course. In the beginning the regulation twenty-eight credits were required for admission. On January i, 1907, the requirements were raised to thirty credits, and on the first day of this year one full year of college w ork w as required. This means that hereafter a large ma- jority of medical graduates will also hold a university degree, the present junior class — ' 09- — being unique in this respect at the present time. e ery member of the class holding a bachelor degree. Xot only have admission standards been raised, but the whole standard is so high that Nebraska is now almost the only w ' estern medical college which ranks in class A, which means that, as far as standards and quality of woik is concerned, Nebraska is not outranked in the United States, and although we have but hun- dreds and thousands where others have millions for equipment, a U. of N. diploma wears the blue ribbon in the professional and scientific world. And, as if in recog- nition of this, at the last election our own Dean H. B. Ward was unanimously made president of the American Association of INIedical Colleges, which office he still fills with honor to himself and satisfaction to the medical and educational world.

Early in October rumors of class organization were heard. Twice success attended the efforts of the irre- sistible Sophomores to prevent the Freshmen from organiz- ing; but the third time proved the charm, and the class of 1908 became a reality. Under the protection of the Chancellor, John Uhl. and the Registrar, Rarwick of Lincoln was elected the first president: Miss Hodges was chosen vice-president; ' Byron K. Eaton, secretary ; and Moss Kimmel, treasurer. The rest of the semester we spent in making ourselves feel at home, and in trying to win our way into the hearts of the profs. Most of us passed safely through the first ordeal of exam- inations, drew a long breath, and braced up for the second semester ' s work. We now began to look like college students and to learn the college yells. Earlv in the semester the second class election took place. Here peace reigned. Harry Swan was unanimously chosen president, while Florence Tillotson was made vice-president: O. X. Munn was electe l secretary: C. F. McLaughlin held the office of treasurer. As Freshmen we did many mighty deeds. Many of our number scaled to uncertain heights of literary fame through our themes in Rhetoric L Others worked overtime at their bench - work. Not the least among our achie -ements was the Freshman lio ) held early in May at iMaternity Ha!!, with C. I ' liliock as chaimian of the commirtee. Having safely parsed through the clutclies of the semester examinations, we dis- persed to our homes, to ilream during the long summer days of the wonders and joys of our Sophomore davs. Xow we were Sophomores. Soon, like ancient Gaul, our class was divided into three parts, the politicians, the workers, and the sloughers. Peace in politics was a thing of the past. The office of president was eagerly sought after. Swenson finally won over the fraternity and Iron Sphinx element. Esther Wood was elected vice-president : Nellie Schwab, secretarv : Bvron E. M- ' istan1 uf tlir (Claisa of lUUH 45 Yoder. treasurer. Gradually the strong class s])irit. of which we have suicc been so proud, welded us closely together. First came the scrap with the Freshman, when .Swenson, Turner, and Harvey made their triumphant entrance into the Freshman class meeting-, by way of the pipe organ window, only to be ejected amid terrific screams, fleeing Sopho- mores, and crushed Freshmen. Then came the never-to-be-forgotten dav ol reckoning with the Chancellor, followed liy the humble apologies of the class war- ! riors, who had attempted to break up the Freshman meeting. During the fall our football team won the school champion- ship. To Menefee, Matters, McLaugh- lin, Turner, and Cooke belongs much of the glory and honor for thi s Following this came the Sophomore Hop, which, under the efficient leader- ship of Dick Hunter, proved such a great success. The Athletic Carnival now claimed our attention. The Freshmen joined with us in making this a " howling success " from every point of view. In the semi-annuals a few of our number fell by the way.-ide. but these were soon forgotten in the class election. Yoder won the presi- " ' -■ dency by a big majority. Verne Hall w as elected vice- president, Alice Rudersdorf secretary, and Helen Laws treasurer. After the election every one settled down to work; for weeks Vv ' e did nothing but dig and grind. F.arly in May the class paused long enough in their work to give a successful party out at the Farm. Once more came the hackne}ed subject of e.xaminatiuns, and the separation for the summer. We came back as Juniors, sedate and dignified, for now we were upper classmen. T- ' olitics was the first subject to claim our $■, attention. Presidential candidates seemed scarce, Hughes having everything his ow ' n way. On the morning of the election, how- ever, Afimn entered the race, and very nearh- prevented Hughes from carrying off the prize. Laura Rhoades was chosen vice- president, and on account of the illness of the president, served during the greater part of the term as president. Pearl Murohy was secretary and " Bud " Bergquist sen-ed as treasurer. Each Junior seemed determined to make this vear count in having a good time. First came the " Kid Party, " where, under the leadership of Froyd an(l Sullivan, we renewed our youth b playing blind-man ' s bluff, drop the 46 ©isluru nf Ihr (Elass nf lUUB handkerchief, aiul by eating slick candy and animal crackers. Scarcely had wx recovered from this jollification when the semi-annuals aj ain claimed our atten- tion. These safely passed, the politicians again bestirred rhcm- selves.

Later the Iron Sphinx put up Jorgensen, but iii so doing met their A ' atcrioo. for you all remem- ber I:ow " ' lorgy " withdrew the night before the election took place, leaving a unanimous election for Mr. Shaw. Alice Rudersdorf was chosen vice-president, Ellen True acted a.« secretary, Froyd was treasurer, and the Robbins brothers were selecteil for class attorneys. Early in March we all spent another ha])py evening together in tlie Armorv, dancing and playing games. ' Matters and .Alden managed the affair. " Twas that night that the tamous pie-eating con- test took place. " Brigham " ' Young won. We ) are all still wondering how he ever surv ' ved ■ " ' " ' i ' night. Shortly after this came the Junior ■ ' V .- v Prcm, with Wasson as chairman of the com- mittee. Few proms have been more success- ful and beautiful than this one. AH of April the class planned the reception to be given to the Seniors. What a glorious time we had • Never before had such a large crowd cf the two upper classmen gathered together [ v( (;lil(,for a good time. You all rcnicmber how fes- tive the lemorial flail looked with al! the gay pennants, the palms, the flowers, and the ha] py throngs of Seniors. How eagerly the crowd hovered around the gypsy for- tune-teller ' s tent, waiting for them to tell us some ro.seate future. The beautiful May days tempted us out to the woods for a picnic. A ' hat did it matter if the skies did weep ' Raindrops could not spoil our fun. You all recall the good thinps Clarence Johnson planned for us, the girls ' baseball game, the boating, and last of all the lunch with the little pails of ire cream and the tin spoons. We were liappy as Juniors. an l many of us, with regret, saw the days of our third year pass by. iSislmu uf tlir (Class nt ' lillU rivj three nionths nt suninicr vacation slipped quickly au-a ' . iih llie be- ginning of September the ' o8s early returned to school. How dignified we tried to be, we who were now the upper clas-s. How glad we all were to be back ior our fourth year, our happiest year, our best year of all. Yet there were some of our number who did not return to us. We missed them and wished that thev, too, might be with us Lo share our joys and pleasures. Registration over, the class election became the ab- sorbing topic. Claude Alden was the unanimous choice for president, Nellie Ludden was vice-presicient. lary Rrown was elected secre- tary, and Chester Hall served as treasurer. Before October slipped away the class, more than a hun- dred strong, went to the woods for breakfast. " Dud " Bergquist was master of ceremonies. Do vou all. remember lallory. the poor cap- tured Freshman ; the big camp-fire , the formidable man with the gun, who tried to frighten us awav ; Clarence ' s coffee ; the hot " weenies " ; the awful paint brush ; and last of all the corn- stalk parade? Shortly after this our girls appeared in their caps and gowns, making us feel more dignified than ever. Earl in December the .Masquerade, under the direction of Menefte, brought together strange creatures from all parts B of the earth. There were Japs in flowery kimonas. Turks, K mJ clowns, darkies, Indians with pahit and tomahawk, quiet nuns WB from nearby convents, and cowboys with fierce pistols. Soon ' - after this the girls won the championship in basketball. Moss Kimmel, Mary Brown, ' Xcllie Stevenson, Nell . ( Bndenbaugh, and Celia _ v Foster formed the vie- ••- ■- . torious team. Tiien , ' " ■ ' ♦i V. -Kij;. came the semester ex- ' Vi ' ; ;.V ' ? t , ' ' hottest political battles -; [, V,j . ever fought in this Uni- Ajst ' " " versity. Sullivan, Mills, -and Menefee were al! early in tlie field as " i cai-didates for president se.viok break.f. st I ach man had a host of friends working for him. Hotter and hotter waged the battle, as the days went by, and the time for the election drew near. IMenefce animations. The new semeste; usl-.ered in one of the ' ' ' . ■ ' 48 IStstuni of tbr (UlasH nf laiia finally won by two votes. Elizabeth -.vas vice-president, Moss Kimmel was secretary, " Urighani " Young was treasurer. The Senioi- Informal, in charge of Mattison and Hrubesky, and the Senior Prom, with Ted Mills as chairman, have both been occasions of which the class may well be proud. Knode and his com- mittee are hard at work on an Ivy Day program that will far surpass any similar program ever given. Sv. ' enson will be the orator on that day. .Sneak Day we all know will be one of the j oiliest days of our whole college life, forming a fit- ting climax to the many hapf y hours we have spent together at work and at play. When the day of graduation comes and the long line of nearly three hun- tircd ' o8s march up to receive their de- grees, there will be many of whom we may well be proud. Three of our men, Frum, Matters, and eller, have won " Ns " on the football field ; while Alden. Knode, and W ' hite have earned their " Ns " in the track teams. Bell has represented our class on the Varsity basketball team ; and Blake and Hrubesky have played for several seasons on the baseball team. Our class has been esi)ecially honored in the work of debate, for six of our men. Swenson. Voder. McWhinney. King. Frerichs. and Hough, have repre- sented the University in intercollegiate debate. Our four }ears of University life are almost over. With many regrets we say good-by to the old campus where we Ii.ive worked and plaved for four years. We hope that the members of 1908 will ever be numbered among the loyal supporters of old Xebraska. Yes. the past four years have taught us many lessons VW ' V ' ll l ' f ' " " — ' ' ' ' " secure. V-fevrC i C " ' d " tv; the fu- ' " hope — hope that will en- able our class to make a wide mark in the world ; for the cnergv. the abil- ity, the enthusiasm of which we have so often been proud during our University days will not be left behind, but will be carried with us into the splendid activities of the future.

Hendricks i taturu «f (Class at IHUB lUUj-U W t arrived safely in September over eighty strong. Why we came we do n ' t al! know, but isn ' t it enough that we came and stayed? In those da}s the Freshmen met in U 207, which was large, airy, and s(ime- times clean. The first day we sat up close to the platform and drank in what Pro- fessor Wilson told us we would have to know. It sounded something like count- ing down the buttons of your coat, rich man, poor man, beggar man, chief, lawyer, doctor, etc. Later we spread out a little and lined up in a semicircle, so that be- fore long Professor Costigan referred to us lovingly as his wallfiowert:. We were good the first year and deserved the admiration of the Faculty. In those days we did not bother the French department, in fact most of us never heard of it until Maxey came. We were not too iiiiich in earnest when we were Freshmen. W " e thought our duty was discharged by supporting the Law book and the Law baseball teams. A resolution was once passed concerning the tobacco habit, and some one was mean enough to insinuate that we swiped the cuspidors. The only thing we were really in earnest about was the suppression of flirting in class, and we suppressed it, too, with the aid of rice. lane-r The whole class did n ' t get back last fall, but we were glad to see the rem- nants anyway. W ' e got a new professor this year, which is not so strange, but still we could notice it. One of the boys took him for a Freshman and assured him the work was hard. He wrote a book on one of the subjects, so it is supposed the case system goes against his grain. The Dean ajjpointed the practice court, and gave us a few justices, clerks, and so forth. David Simms and Leo Legro summoned the Freshman on the old game. Bartos prosecuted them for it and made a fine record. He lost only one case, and that w-as because the jury got hungry and acquitted Le.gro in order to get their supper. The Registrar caused us a bad half-hour during the civil procedure examina- tion. W ' e were denounced as thieves, assassins, and fools for stealing the whole bunch, when one exammation quesTion sheet would have been enough. " It is up to you " ' was hurled at t s. W ' e rose to the occasion, appointed a committee who inspected the evidence of the crime — ink stains in an emptv drawer. W ' hile we were deliberating we learned that the Registrar had feared for their safety and taken care of them. i9nr-B There were not so manj of us back last fall, but the remnant braced their shoulders under the firm resolve to uphold the honors and dignity of the class as an entity. W ' e have been so busy studying Property III that we have hac ' no t ' me to joke or raise Cain. All we have done has been to work consistently for ourselves and the school, with lofty ambitions and desires, with firm purpose to do right at any cost, and if necessary with life insurance to make both -ends meet.

In some places there were small struggles against the hom ' rule. These uprisings were overcome and the governor, after proposing certain allow- ances, abdicated his power to the High Lord Protector ' and his adjunct Protector.

" Class Secretary ' s book, vol. I, p. " 20. states that competition was high because of great honor of the positions. A meeting of the States General was called in September, 1905, to represent the Class of ' 09. Its intentions were modest but worthy, the first plan being to reform the Univer- sity world. Thus parliament declared itself Freshmen and came to enjoy its first privi- leges, the green registration slips, ' and the rights of Freshmen. The plan of holding a council meeting was conceived by a few class politicians, probably before the 25th of October, 1905. ' ' Memorial Hall was the scene of much excitement. The Monarchists ' tried to pass the Exclusion Bill by way of the Pipe Organ, but failed utterly. C. E. Elliot was elected president. Other successful meetings resulted in the election of S. M. Rinaker " for the second semester. The colors selected as a sign of ' 09 were maroon and old gold. ' In the middle of a severe winter of the same year a visitation of pestilence ' came to the class. Following came the usual Sopho- more disease. Dick Patterson, M. of C ' was seized at the Lyric and taken to Waverly. He escaped easily by trading his watch for a horse and riding back to town. Interclass athletics gave excellent opportu- nity for retaliation for the annoyances en- dured. ' 09 won the interclass indoor track meet and the basketball championship; thus were the Tories punished for their . cts of Presumption. ' " In the fall of 1906 succession to higher power gave cause for another council meet- ing. S. M. Rinaker was elected president for the first semester and Fred Wildish for the second. S. P. Dobbs was elected managing editor and Hubert Bell business manager of the CoRNHirSKER. " Then came a general commotion in the social customs; a new tribe, the Greenheads, had entered the campus grounds and needed readjustment by the strong Sophs. Heskitt, their leader, was seized and plunged into the 108 ffitiitnru uf (Class of 1909 ' " M. Courier de Provence, pt. XIV, p. 13, R. S. Harrison states that he and various other Sopliomores took Mr. Heskitt for a buggy ride. Mr. Heskitt kicked and strug- gled in so ungentlemanly a manner that they were forced to phice him in tlie fountain. " A sort of carriage much used in those days. An iUustration of it may be found in McWhinney ' s " History of My Great Great Grandfatlier, " printed in 2028, a few copies of whicli are still extant. " See Prceedings of Chancellor Andrews in Cases of Kidnaping ni any good law library. John Uhl, trusty hallguard. takes oath tliat lie admitted Mr. Gittings to the dance. " A pair of handcuffs are on record in the archives of the class with the names " Hol- land " and " Jennings " inscribed thereon. It is supposed that Jennings was a Sophomore to whom Holland was liancuffed. ' " Such a change was not altogether un- common. We have records of three other classes, 1913, J92S, and 1901, undergoing such a process. " See Life of Pat Gallup. Rogues Gallery, Grand Island. " Memoirs of a Segregationist, vol. XIV, p. 861. ' " Just what these w ere we can only sur- mise. We have reference in some places to the Lawes as a tribe who dwelt apart, ad- mitted few if any women to fellowship, and were inclined toward spittoons and knocking profs. The Engoniers are supposed to have been the operators of the " machine " which Roy Nelson speaks of in " Life and Letters of Iron Sphinx, " vol. IV, p. 12. great fountain. " A weak opposition was madt by abducting Verne Gittings just before the Sophomore Hop, of which he was M. of C, and taking him to Roca. After many ad- ventures, he was rescued by a small party of the valiant men of 1909, who invaded the enemy ' s country in an ottomobil " and plucked the class honor out of the hands of its en- emies. This rescue was effected at much cost, and marks the beginning of the class debt. Mr. Gittings was present at the func- tion in his proper capacity. " In retaliation for such insolent condirct, the Freshmen Master of Ceremonies was taken from the scene of iiis labors and only ap- peared at the dance at a late hour, accom- panied by a band of Sophomores, handcuffed to one of whom he spent the evening. " In the fall of 1907, a Grand Council meet- ing was held and the class passed as . body into an Upper House, a change whose dignity was much felt by all. ' " Robert Elliott was chosen as speaker and performed his duties right well. Under his leadership, the Seniors of 1908 were defeated on the gridiron by the score of 13 to 0 ' " and the best Junior Prom given in the memory of Mrs. Barkley. " Ed Guidinger succeeded to the speakership ajid the class contiiuied to prosper. Great competition arose as to the man who should edit the great history of the class, the Corn- HUSKER of 1909. A combination of Engoniers and Lawes " was effective in securing tlif coveted honor for W. A. Robertson. At this point a break occurs in the historj of the class. Whether or not some envious rival destroyed all records is impossible tc ascertain and we can only express the hope that some chronicler of a future generation will discover such records as will enable him to throw full light on nineteen-hundrcd and eight ' s progress.

U 309. " Dean Pound darted out of his office, adjusted his glasses, made a feint at end around end and smashed the line for thirty vards for a touchdown. Our hero, tattered and torn, stood breathlessly before us and introduced us to the class of 1909. We all politely responded. " Howdy do. " The usual difficulty of identification followed. Were we Fresh- men or Sophomores ? The Freshics were n ' t good enough for us. The Sophs wouldn ' t have us. We knew wher;- we belonged, but we " never said a word. " We preferred to be called, designated, and known as simply the Class of 190C). Nuflf sed. ( But. kind reader, think of the modesty.) At the first meeting of the class of 1909 for the transaction of such business as might properly come before it (Contracts. Prop- erty I, History and System of the Common Law, Torts and Com- mon Law Pleading, excluded ) a movement was set on foot to make the class organization a model for the University by instituting a competitive svstem for selecting officers, thus obviating the petty politics which not only promote disharmony, but always fail to ob- tain the best results (the reader is respectively referred to the list above 1 . Lender this proposed system the members of the class whose excellencv in scholarship was of the highest standing were to stand as of absolute right to the offices of the class. The would-be poli- ticians did n ' t want it : nobody blames them. That they are far-.see- ing and shrewd is to be said to their credit. The opposition to the svstem prevailed, and the Utopia of the University failed to be real- ized. We hope, however, to become famous some day for the idea. Resolutions, conmnittees. unanimity, and sociability are the chief characteristics of the class. (Tnllfiv nf 23aut i ' (Ulaas nf 1909 1.- — B. W. Allen. S V E. Bismarck High School. Home, Bismarck.

Yell L ' of X 1910 L ' of X icjio U of N It) 10 HURRAY It was on one of those traditional warm and sunny days in September when the class of 1910 approached the gates of the University. TJie first dutv that con- fronted us was getting registered. This ilifficulty was soon over, and the Univer- sity was once more blessed with the addition of the annual crop of Freshmen. It was not many days until our first class meeting was .held in spite of the Sopho- mores who tried their best to in terfere. The first year was unusually peaceful and there seem to have been no epoch-making events. In athletics, however, the class was especially successful. In the class football championship a tie game was played with the Juniors : the boys carried ciT the championship in the interclass basketball, and even this early in its career the class had men in football, track, cross-country, and basketball. During the first year of our existence we were represented by A. J. Heskett and L. J. W ' eaver as class presidents. The parties of the first }ear were a great success. At the annual Freshman hop the chairman and master of ceremonies successfullv evaded the detectives from the other classes and appeared triumphantly at the dance. At the second event of the year, the master of ceremonies was present, although not exactly as he had planned, yet the dance was as much of a success as the first one. The second year has opened up in a most propitious manner for the class of 1910. In the first place, be it said to our credit, we complied with the rule of the University authorities, and permitted the Freshmen to conckict their first class meeting undisturbed. After the meeting, however, a few Sophomores took occa- sion to parade the Freshman president-elect about the city with his face painted a striking and most becoming shade of green and his head piotectod bv a red bandana handkerchief. So far as athletics are concerned, the history of the second year is much like that of the first. The class has certainly done itself proud. We hold the class championship in football for the season 1907-8, and the Imx s have again succeeded in carrying off the basketball championship. Men from the class are active in football, basketball, track, and cross-country teams. For this second year the presidents have been John .M. .Mcxaiider and Harry Ingles. These men have ably borne the responsibility and helped brine the class to its present place of preeminence,. SOPHOMORE AKES,.K HAKIH, r..a.. xeli, WIMTMUKE. V. Pres. KREO HOl-F.MAN. Trea.

After the meeting a large part ot the t e hman c a°s hast ned to the nth street fountain, where it was rumorea the pres.dent-el ct fa to reSe ,,, a,,, bath at the University. This, however, proved to be a talse due °or while the Freshmen were chasing toward the fountain Weaverling was beinc. paraded up and down O street in a costume best fitted to a circus clown. This was indeed an eventful penod. and soon thereafter we were aroused by the action of the Athletic Board m prohibiting us from participation in mterc-ass a hlettc events. Because of this rule the first.year football men who did such gal- lant work as scrubs for the Varsity were not allowed to measure their strength alongside of the representatives from other classes. Our Informal in November was one of the most successful events ot its kmd durincr the vear. The class is looking forward to the ne.t hop with great antici- patLit and under the chairmanship of Earl Mallerv no disappointment . ex- pected It niav be said that the .Sophomores have also had a dance during his y a and this ;vent has made history for the class of 191 1- The story reads hke an up-to-date drama with plot, climax, hero, villain, and all the other necessaries. Late on Sundav night preceding th. Sophomore Hop a company ot treshmen Lc apped Dale ' MacDoi ld from his place of residence. Mr. MacDonald was th. maste! of ceremonies for the Sophomore Hop. With Sommerhal ter as chief cus- todian, the second year official was hurried by automobile to neatnce. Hand- cuffed and closely guarded he was held at a nearby farm ' " t ' l hnrsday noon In the meantime, however, things were growing rather warm at Lincoln. Chancellor Andrews was stronglv opposed to the long period of capt.vity to which the Soph- omore was subjected, and for this reason demanded his immediate release. The Fre.hmen saw the of resisting the University authorities, and comphed with the request. Subsequentlv, complications arose which necessitated the with- drawal of President Weaverling from the University. One thing stdl_ remains as a consolation to the Freshmen, that had the Chancellor not interfered the Soph- omores would not have had a master of ceremonies to conduct their ( ance. Second semester politics seem to mark the beginning of an epoch of peace t a ver. ' quiet election. Merlin Barker of David City was chosen president. Dark ' red and silver grav were selected as class colors. With this very stardmg begin- uing of the class of 1911, it is hoped that a career has been inaugurated which will end ' as illustriously as have those of other classes. MiiftNjoN-i oi; J. li.

(Cnlr illiani C. Cole, familiariy known in football circles as " King " Cole, came to the University of Nebraska with an enviable record not only as a coach but also as a player. His work here as coach of the Cornhuskers has more than sustained the reputation which preceded him. It is not an easy matter to adequately present the work and in- fiuence of a man like Cole ever after his first brief period of service here. To state fairly and even moderately the attitude of foolba ' l men as well as of the entire student bodv toward him niitjht seem to be thoughtless praise. This much may be permitted. liowe er, Vvhile at Nebraska he has not only i)roven himself eminentlv fitted as a coach, but as a gentleman he has won the respect of the student bodv. His stand for clean athletics has made a telling impressio- on all University athletics and given him an influence of far-reach- ing consequences. Coach Cole has been an athlete ever since he entered jiropara- ton- school. For three years he was a member of the baseball and football teams of Marietta College. In 1902 he entered the Univer- sity of Michigan and ])rnmptly " ' made good " on the ' ' arsitv football team. Following his career at Michigan he coached the team of JMarietta College for one year, and in 1904 he was assistaTit to Coach Yost at the University of Michigan. Beginning with IQ05 he coached for two seasons at the University of Virginia, from which place he was called to be coach at Nebraska. His first season here brought signal success to the Co " nhuskers — it marked a reversal of the rather humiliatitig records of the years just preceding and the beginning of more hopeful signs. Cole will return to Nebraska for the iyo8 season, and those who know him best, not only pcrsonallv but in his capacity as football coach, are satisfied in all ects. (Cciplain Jluhu WeiWv 179 (Eaptatu ilolnt WtiWv Captain John Weller, whose football career closed at St. Louis, was a man who combined brain with brawn. His strength rested upon rugged honesty and a democratic spirit which was large enoi.igh to bring him in contact not (inlv with everv member of his team but with the entire student body. ' el!er was a member of the Nebraska Foot- hall Team for four years. He m.ade the ' Varsity in Lgoj , plaving half back and tackle that year and the next. His work during these two years was always consistent and strong, though seldom of a sensational characte " -. He especially .distin- guished himself in the Xebraska-Illinois game of 1004. Last year he held a half-baclc position on the team and made such an excellent showuig W ' that he was chosen to captain the ' 07 eleven m ' eller ' s career is that of the well-rounded ath- 1 kte. Last winter he made tlie basketball team H tf at center ; at the State Fair games last fall he ran J B aV a ion-yard dash in 10 1 5 seconds, the 220 dash mm ' in 22 3 5 seconds, and the 440 in 53 seconds. He " • ' SBr is at present the holder of the Varsity record in the sixteen-pound shot-put. distance, thirty-seven feet and ten inches. The prowess of such a man can not be measured by bone and muscle. His strength ' as of that unconquerable kind which could be inspired only by a deep sense of loyalty to his school. His gridiron battles wert fought for the glory of Nebraska. It was this unselfish spirit grounded in gen- erous motives that gave him the strength of several men who might be pla ing for individual glory. ' eller is now at Panama, where he accepted a splendid position as encrineer. His friends at the University are glad to know of his success. It 1. -■?5 f? - I. B. HAKVKV. Lett End II. V. KWlNi;.

Quarter-Back iFinit i all i-fciiuiu lUlir 183 ot Ball iFont lall irasnu liinr The record of the past season on the gridiron is too familiar to every one interested in Nebraska athletics to need reiteration here. A snnple accotmt of the impressions left by the fall ' s record is all that will be given. The football season of 1907 has left its stainp both upon the men who participated in the game, and, in its proper relation to the L ' niversity, npon the life of the institution itself. There had been but one year under the changeil con.litions brought about by the new rules. The changes relating particularly to the forward pass and the on- side kick necessitated the taking of much time from each practice period in order to perfect the men in handling and passing the ball. Constant work with the bail brought results hardly to be expected in one year ' s time ; for at the start very few men on the squad knew anything regarding the spiral pass. But b - persistence and constant effort all of the men became fairly proficient in passing, and some developed rare skill in the underhand, side, and overhead method. For the first two weeks light work was indulged in and considerable coach- ing given in the rudiments of the game. The squad, numbering only four or five when the first practice was held on the loth of .September, gradually increased until the latter part of the second week, when all the men who were to upheld the honor of Nebraska in football during the season of 1907 were in uniform, [t was then that many speculations by interested persons were indulged in as to the make- up of the team for the year. This indulgence by other s is always amusing to the one who has the decision as to the personnel of the team in the last instance. It was a great year for speculation, for with so few old men on hand it was inter- esting because it was so uncertain as to who would make the team. This time of uncertainty before any games were played did not contain many hopeful signs. Indeed, as reports began to be received from, men who were expected to add greatly to the strength of the 1907 team, that they would not return to the Uni- versity, a damper was placed tipon our hopes for a championship team, which it took actual conflict to remove. Such was the condition of affairs when the first game was played, but the game was encouraging, for there seemed to be a different atmosphere around the campus after this first try-out. The early practice game gave evidence of considerable speed in the team as a whole, and, to the inexperienced observer, the comparativelv large number of men of good size, evidence also of strength. But to those " football wise " persons who know, it was evident that most of the men on the squad were naturalh- adapted to THE MOST EXCITING GAME EVER PLAYED ON A NEBRASKA FIELD, SCORE 10 TO 9. NEBRASKA VICTORIOfS if out MM -rasuu lUlir 185 playing on the line, and few adapted to play end or back positions. It is a fact that out of the entire squad there was not a single man who was familiar with the position of end, or had ever played that position. It was necessary, therefore, to devote much time to developing men for these positions ; and in order to attain organized strength and to get the highest possible efficiency out of the material at hand, many shifts were necessary before a combination was effected which seemed the best out of the available material. In view of the numerous changes and shifts in the line-up, there were many who looked forward with apprehension to the playing of the important games on an unusually hard schedule. With a nucleus of only five " N " men, and no Freshman material available for the year, the prospects for a strong team did not look especially bright, to say the least. But as the season advanced and the substitute and Freshmen material of the year before began to show quality, the most skeptical changed their notions in regard to the strength the team would show in the big games of the year. It was evident that while there appeared to be no man on the squad who would stand out prominent above his mates, nevertheless the men averaged up well, there be- ing in many cases several candidates for the same position of so nearly the same strength that it was hard to choose between them. This contest for positions brought out the best there was in the men, adding spirit and interest to the prac- tice that was of inestimable value. For the reason that man_ - of the men were untried, it was necessary to do considerable hard work early in the year, and what with the contests for positions and -he early approach of the hard games of the schedule, the men rapidly rounded into first-class physical condition. hen on the 19th day of October the Minnesota game was played, the team, while not especially strong in team play, was as a whole in good condition. From that date till Thanksgiving there was no let-up from hard work, the strain on the men from this long period of strenuous work being terrific Minnesota, Colorado. Ames, Kansas, and St. Louis being met in the order named, we were reasonably fortunate until after the Kansas game in the matter of injuries, and the men were able to go through the games with ilinnesota. Colorado, Ames, and Kansas with- out the hard series having any visible effect on their physical condition. Two weeks after the Minnesota game the strong and veteran team from Ames came to Lincoln. Perhaps there was no game during the year when the men were more fit physically than they were when they entered that contest. This fact is made plain when it is recalled that at the end of a game of two thirty-five minute halves, they were able to put up the wonderful exhibition of endurance and nerve which they showed when Ames threatened their goal three times in succession in the last ten minutes of play, and when, against tremendous odds, their chance came to win, the ball was carried by a succession of fierce rushes into Iowa ' s territory and the winning score made. As was said, the team was in top notch condition for th? game with Iowa state, but tlie all-important game with Kansas coming on the fol- lowing Saturday necessitated their maintaining that condition until the Kansas game was played. While perhaps a bit less fresh for a severe contest than the week previous, the regular men were all able to enter the game at Lawrence, and there played a remarkably versatile and dashing game. It was not until the last few minutes of the contest that the strain began to tell, and a few substitutions bCENES FROM THE COLORADt). DENVER AND AMKS (.ANU iFnot iilaU rasuu lUUr l " had to be made to relieve the men who had borne up under the fight for five weeks. Afte r this contest there was a short let-up from hard work, and while Denver and Doane were in turn disposed of without great trouble, the men never regained that dashing spirit which was so prominent from the start of the season till the Kansas game was played and won. Three of the regulars came out of the game with Doane. on the Saturday preceding Thanksgiving, in no condition to enter a hard contest for at least two weeks. When the team left for St. Louis it was hoped that these men would " " round to " in time to put up their usual brilliant game. Such, however, was not the case. Added to this, in less than five minutes after the game with St. Louis L ' niversity started, one of the miost valuable line men met with an accident that necessitated his removal fiom the game. While it is never pleasant under anv conditions to lose. Vet losing a game that seemed en- tirelv apart from our schedule, and of no vital importarice aside from the game itself, it can not be considered to have detracted in the least from tlie brilliant work of the season. Now to account for the work of the team and the results of the season. It is often true that a team composed of old and tried material often loses an important game of the ' ear simply because the men are so cocksure of success, and those with whom thev daily come in contact are also so cocksure they will win. This condition often resulted disastrously for the kind of team mentioned. The men on the 1907 team at Nebraska had no such feeling regarding their prowess, nor did the students and friends of Nebraska feel optimistic regarding their strength. This feeling resulted in the determination to succeed in spite of all obstacles. In addition thev were fit subjects to be worked up to a proper mental attitude for the important contests. This " do or die " spirit gave the men an appetite for work, and resulted finally in a spirit of confidence, but not over-confidence, pervading the entire squad. A ' e. in short, did not have the sort of men who had already ac- complished wonders in football, but a band of men, athletic, energetic, and deter- mined who were willing to learn all they could, work hard wherever -they were placed, and leave the rest to their coach. In regard to their training, the strictest rules were observed. This, however, does not mean that a set of rules were form- ulated and the men required to observe each and every one under penallv of dis- missal from the squad, or other punishment. In a general way. the men knew what was required of them, and beyond this each individual was responsible for his own physical condition. The men were never watched, either at home or on trips, and from this individual responsibility there grew ud an honor system which the men themselves guarded implicitly. In fact, the full and entire credit should be given the men themselves for this guarding of their own and the LTniversitv ' s honor. And the same honor should be their due for the success achieved on the field of contest. Quoting from Mr. Ewing ' s article in the Daily Xebiaskan. " Not a single untoward incident marred the success of the season. On no occasion have the Nebraska players showed themseb es to be other than what their Alma Mater desires them to be — gentlemen. No suggestion of motives other than ]oye fnr tlie game and regard for their L ni ' er?ity has appeared as a cause for their connection with the team. It is not often that so nnich can be said even of athletes imbi:ed with ln c for their college. " W. C.

I am inclined to give the first place to Weller of Nebraska for his general work, and especially his per- formance in the Minnesota game, lthough a halfback, he must be given recognition for his all round work, and undoubtedly would make a fine man between De Tray and Idd- ings. He is fast and heady, a good kicker of the punt or place kick, and an excellent man handling the forward pass and in the interference. " Eckersall ' s opinion of Cornhusker Cha- loupka : " Chalonpka of Xebraska has more possi- bilities in him than any man on the field. He is aggressive in every sense and power- ful, and with more education on the finer points of the gatiie ought to make a remark- able man. " BASKET Tnglen ood r, 58 SMITHY ■J •J z ar: siictBall The record of the 1907-8 basketball season was decidcdlv more interesting than successful. For variety it couM not have been excelled. The earlv season outlook for a strong team was good. Three veterans from the 1905-6 and 1906-7 teams were back, and with a squad of forty candidates, manv of whom showed excellent ability, the task of fdling the center and left forward positions did not appear to be an especially difficult one. Had all of the candidates been as good students as they were basketball players the nnal records for the season would have been very different, but when one after another of the best candidates for these positions were lost to the team, the basketball merctuw accordingly dropped, until the storm finally seemed even to take the ginger out of the veterans, who at played like school boys. In spite of the numerous drawbacks and disappointmenis in the first half of the season, the team played fairly good ball, and the prospects of eventually de- veloping a strong team seemed good. In.stead of the steady development which was naturally looked for, the team gradually lost confidence in e.ich other, and went from bad to worse — due to a large extent to the faikire of all attempts to bolster up the weak center position. . s a last resort Walsh was shifted from for- ward to center, but his work at center was as disapjiomting as it had been brilliant in the forward position. Another factor which worked against the team was the attempt to play under two radically dififerent sets of rules and under interpreta- tion which bordered on the " women ' s " game on one extreme and indoor football on the other. Dvtring the entire season Nebraska plaved twenty match games, only six of which were played on the home floor, a fact which should be kept in mind in fairlv judging the results of the season ' s contests. Ten of these twenty games were won and an equal number lost. One hundred eighty field goals and 114 foul goals were thrown by ebraska, giving a total of 474 against 213 field goals and 128 foul goals thrown by her opponents — a total of 554 points. Probably the most inter- esting and exciting contests of the season were the four Missouri Valley cham- pionship games between Nebraska and Kansas. All four were fast, close, and devoid of all unnecessary roughness. In the first two contests, which were played at Lawrence, Nebraska was the victor by 3 and 2 points respectively, and Kansas turned the tables on the Cornhuskers by taking the last ,two at Lincoln by 3 and 4 points respectively. 196 iBoakrl i all The results of the entire season are cjiven below : Field Foul Field Foul Goals Goals Goals Goals Dec. 18, 07 at L ' ni.

LJell out- classed all of his team-mates. In the early part of the season Walsh did the major portion of the scoring for Nebraska am! deser os special mention for his brlliant work, particularly in the first lissouri and the second games. In sharp contrast to his early season ' s work, his later showing was lamentably weak in all departments of the g ame. Only at rare intervals did Captain Paul Bell play anj-- thing like the strong game he consistently jilayed during the season of 1906-7. In the few games in which he took part l ' ' . ' .rruss played his usual fast and spec- tacular game. Both Perr - and Woods displayed reiuarkabie speed and aggres- siveness, but their lack of experience was painfully evident at times ; if not too greatly handicapped by their lack of weight both men shotild develop into first- class forwards. E. A. Schmid, who finished the season at center, plav ' d that po- sition very satisfactorily for one who had had so little experience in the most diffi- cult position on the team. Should the proposed Missouri Valle Conference Basketball League materi- alize next year, basketball will receive a great boom not only in the University of Nebraska but in everv universitv in this Co ' .iference.

The long distance runs were considered Nebraska ' s strongest events, but unfortunately none of our representatives were consistent performers. In the sprints Burrus did not get into shape early, but late in the season he developed his usual speed in both the 100- and 22n-yar(l dashes, and took these events in the Kansas meet without difficulty. In the half mile Benedict kept up the family tradition in his dis])lav of nerve and perseverance and did some remarkal;ly good running at times, but, like his team-mates, his work was not always as consistent as the coach could desire. In the mile run Morgan developed the best form ever seen on Neliraska field, and in the Minnesota meet he ran the distance in 4 :3s. setting a new University record which is very likely to stand for some years to come. When he was right Morgan was unquestionably the fastest miler ever produced at Nebraska, but unfortunately he was the least dependable of a decidedl - uncertain squad. Alden did the most consistent work of the long distance squad, and in the Minnesota meet set a new I ' niversity record of 10:21 for the two mile, . lthough this was Alden ' s fastest winning race, on several occasions he lias finished second in considerably faster time, and, other things being equal, he nui. ' =t be considered as a much surer second place runner than dinner. Near the close of the season Dunlap developed excellent form and much s]iced in the hurdles, and his place on the team will be harder to fill than any other vacancy. Captain Knode ' s work in the high jump was far below his standard =et in 1906, due chiefly to lack of time for practice and training, due in turn to the pres- sure of other duties. Perry did some very creditable work in the broad jump and should develop into a first-class jumper in another year. Both ' eller and Cha- loupka were good but somewhat erratic performers in the shot-put. The hammer throw and discus usually went by default to our ojiponents, owing to the fact that S. . Collins, the only good competitor in these branches in the University, was ineligible. Three dual meets with . mes. Minnesota, and Kansas, and the home meet comprised the 1907 track schedule. In the . mes meet on Mav 4th the Agricul- turalists won an easy victory, due to a better balanced and better conditioned team. Had the contest been held after the Nebraska team was whipped into condition, doubtless .Ames would have won but by n much narrower margin.

Nebraska became the proud possessor of the beautiful Spalding cup. This cup was donated with the undcrstHUfling that it should be held for one year by the university winning the cross-country race for that year, and that it should become the property of the institution first winning three of the annual contests. At the opening of the ci-oss-country season the prospects for a successful team pre- sented anything but a rosy hue. Captain Morgan, of the victorious 1906 team, entered INlichigan instead of returning to Nebraska ; ITavens was unable to run on account of parental objections ; and Gable also refused to get out. thus leaving but two veterans, Alden and Davis. Great credit is due Captain Aldcn aufl the other members of the team for their hard and constant training and the spirit which thev showed in the face of what looked like sure defeat. . s a cross-country race is strictly a team contest, it was very evident that these two veterans could not win the cup for Nebraska. The three novices on the team did much better work than they had ever done before or could reasojiably be expected to do, and to their spirit and ' ' sand " may be largely attributed the fact that the cup will permaiu-ntly grace a shelf in the new trophy room in the Temple. The final scores of the team contest were as follows : Nebraska first with 28 points : Wisconsin second with 35, and Cnicago third with points. The indi- vidual contest was w on by W. M. Bertles of Wisconsin, who covered the five miles in 27 minutes and 31 seconds. Individually tiie Nebraska team finished as follows : C. L. Alden (captain) second, Lloyd Davis third, H. O. Baumann fifth, E. E. White seventh, F. E. Smith ele -enth. The Western Intercollegiate Cross Country Association was fonned four years ago, and Nebraska has won three of the four annual contests, Chicago taking the 1905 contest from Nebraska by a single point. The results of the past four years ' work in this comparativelv new sport have been extremely gratifying to all those interested in athletics at the Universitv of Neliraska — wi h the exception of the two or three individuals who begrudge the expeufliture of the $150 or $200 required to finance the season. To the lover of sports for sport ' s sake the gratifying feature lies in the fact that a considerable number of students regtilarly take part in the work for the exercise and recreation it affords. The man who looks upon the winning of contests as the onlv reason for the existence of athletic sports nuist surely be satisfied with Nebraska ' s record in this contest for the Spalding trophy. And the man who values athletics from the all round viewpoint of physical development, character building, recreation, and successful competition when the team justly earns it. will iilace this sport on a par with, if not above the best of our college sports. Between forty and fifty students took part in cross-country work last fall, and a considerable number showed promise of being able to uphold Nebraska ' s reputa- tion in this sport another ear. .Vs three of the five members of the 1907 team graduate in June, it will be necessary to I ' evelop practically a new team for the sea- son of i(;o8. The Chic.igo Conference has ofncially assumed control of the Western Inter- collegiate Cross Country .Association. .vhich insures the continuance of these con- tests and nujch. added interest in the sport bv all of the lan ' e universities in the Middle West.

The season opened very late on ac- count of cold and disagreeable weather, and this, combined with the fact that the team was almost entirely composed of new men, made a very bad beginning. The di ngrecable weather made it necessary to cancel tlie practice games whicli were scheduled with the Lincoln League. The team started out with three old men. Cav-taii: Rine held down third base during the entire season with much credit. " Bobbie " Carroll held down his old position behind the bat. Injuries at the very beginning, however, kept him out of the early games of the season. The third veteran was " Slip " Bellamy, the old reliable center fielder and captain for 1908. The new material was almost entirely inexperienced. They did good fielding, but they were ex- ceptionally weak at the bat and for this reason lost several games. Ji st before the eastern trip, Kearney was declared ineligible. There seemed to be no one to take his place, and since it was too late to develop another man, the first bag was covered by Watson, who had been trying for second. In spite of this fact, however, Watson played the game with considerable credit. The pitching staff was entirely new. being composed of . . H. ' ard, Carroll Blake, and C. Hrubesky. Ward is a big husky man with a " south paw. " but like the rest rather inex- perienced. His curves and speed are both good when playing at home, but when away he was inclined to be somewhat nervous. Blake pitciied a good game . t Wisconsin, and with proper supoort from the team, Nebraska would have won the game, which finally ended with a score of 4 to 3. Blake was a " spit ball " artist and used it with considerab ' e effectiveness. Hrubesky pitched good ball, but failed to get the proper support of the Cornhuskers, who were unable to connect with the ball. Beltzer was used in the ho.x at Minnesota and won the game. The outfield was filled in good shape bv Sclilcutcr. Bellamy, and Frecland. The men all did excellent work ; especial credit is due Schlcuter in the left held, where he did work of the " stellar " kind. Schleuter also headed our batting list, a little above the three hundred mark.

This year it has been nnifornied in olive drab, and armed with new Krag-Jorgenson rifles, so that it presents a very businesslike appearance. There are four companies, a hospital corps, and a band, numbering in all about 400 men. The annual competitive drill has come to be one of the events of the school year, and although last year it was held on a very muddy field, there was a large crowd in attendance to cheer the cadets as they " evoluted " in their white duck trousers. For the last two years " C company has won the cup, but the other conipanies swear that they will break the charm and that the evening of ' Slay 28 will find the cup in the possession of some o(her company, although hich one it will be they have not been able to say as yet. The annual encampment has been held for the last two years at Beatrice, where the camping ground is ideal : this vear, however, the cadets have decided that Nebraska City will be the next place. The last encampment at Beatrice will be long remembered as the most disagreeable in many years, as it rained hard everv day and the tents in many cases failed to do al! that was expected of them in the way of shedding water. However, there was a good deal of fun in spite of the rain. The battle of " Refrigerator Ridge " was one of the most stubbornly contested battles ever fought at any encampment. The mortality among the blank cartridges was enormous, and the battle resulted in the defeat and annihilation of " C " companv, the defending force, by " A, " " B, " ' and ' " D " companies, the attack- ing force. In this battle tlie superiority of the new repeating rifles over the old single-shot Springfields was very apparent, as ■ith the later model twice as much noise can be made and twice as many b ' ank cartridges can be shot than was pos- sible before. Aside from these amusements a cadet hop is given every year at the town where camp is held, and this is attended by a large percentage of the battalion. There is a visitors ' day, also, and this is the day on which a great manv of the relatives of the cadets and others who are not attached to the battalion take ad- vantage of the chance to see wdiat soldier life is, and " for to see and to admire " Willie in his nice, new uniform in which he looks so handsome. All in all, there is a great deal of olcasure and fun connected with drill : there is the glory of " compet, " the picturesque " Company O " in its white uniforms, and the fun at camp where all become better acquainted and where there is just enough of discipline to give a taste of what army life is like.

Membership is by election, and each cadet is reqnired to liave one semester of driU at the University. This eHminates all but the best driUed men of the battahon. The Company organized in 1893 by Lieutenant Perill- ing, who was then commandant of cadets. He iaw that something beside the reg- ular drill was necessary to give each individual an opportunity to become profi- cient. Its founder not only contributed in no small measure to the work of the company while here, but has rendered great service since leaving h ' s position as commandant. His interest is shown by the presentation to the Company of many valuable and historic presents, among which are three handsome swords, a cannon taken from the Spanish fortifications in the Philippines, and a beautiful silk flag. Lieutenant Pershing has risen to the rank of Brigadier-General since leaving his station in the University. The Company meets every Thursday night for drill. .Monthly spell-downs full of keen competition offer an incentive to attention on the finer points of drdi. The prize, a gold medal, must be won three times in succession before it becomes the property of the winner. ' I ' lie fortimate inncs thus far have been Joel Steb- bins, Captain Company A., 1899 ; Jerome Lainger, Captain Company C. 1901 ; L. A. Sheldon, Captain Company A, 1905 ; R. E. Guthrie, Captain Company B, 1908. It has been proposed that the Pershing R ' tles go on a practice march of about 150 miles in the spring. This would be greatly enjoyed by all and at the same time would give the men practical ir.structions m methods of field work and camping. The custom was adopted this year of having all uniforms ordered througli the Pershing Rifles. Tliis work was done very satisfactorily, and in the future this will be one of the regular duties of the company. The men who have had the honor of commanding the Pershing Rifles are as follows: Charles Elliot. J. R. Beardsley, J. yi. Dixon, Chas. F. Schwartz. ' . H. Oury, H. C. Parmelee, Chas. W. Weeks, .A. L.

The I ' alladian Literary Society lays unuisputcd claim to the honor of being the oldest University of Nebraska student organization. It begar. " in the begin- ning, " the preliminary meeting having been he ' d on the Saturday night after the University opened its doors to students, in the fail of 1871. From the start the society was a vigorous, active force in all student affairs. It filled so large a place in the life of the students in the ' 70s and ' cSos that to most of the older graduates the name Palladian is endeared far above the name Alma Mater. Students of the present generation listen with something of awe when " old grads " tell the tradi- tions, the " yarns, " that the name Palladian suggests. They also gather inspira- tion when these men and women, some of them with hair turning gray, speak of early davs of the University and testify with unchanging loyalty to the benefits they received from membership in Palladian. The society is an open literary society. Dtiring all the thirty-si.x years of its existence it has held a meeting in its hall every Friday evening of the school year, except for occasional postponements. ' J ' hese meetings are open to the public and strangers are made welcome. Xo halo nf secrec - hides the clear brow of Pallas. No cloud of mastery renders alluring the deeds of her disciples. Xo incantations, no awful vows, no uncanny forms of initiation mislead the bewildered Freshman. The fundamental ideal of the society is democracy, and the open meeting is one of the expressions of this ideal. In the early years the hall often crowded by citizens of the town. The young people were spurred on to extra efforts bv the presence of such audiences, and undoubtedh ' the work in the literarv society ac- complished more in the development of public speakers, lawyers, and miu ' sters of the gospel than any classroom work offered in the University. Palladian alumni, realizing their debt to the society, give liberal support tc any movement for its benefit. The fifteen hundred dollars pledged by Palladians to the temple fund in 1904 was secured with comparative ease from a host of subscribers. — alumni and active members who were to become alumni before the new hall could be dedicated. ' ith the changed conditions of university life, the multiplicity of interests, the storm and stress of more complex courses of study, some transformation in the work of a literary society has been. inevitable. The change is apparent in the literary side of the work. Learned sophomoric essays, thrilling orations, pro- found book reviews, fiery debates are no longer heard on Palladian programs. Indeed, it is to be doubted if students anvwhere now attempt any original literary work, anvthing not " required. " I ' .ut socially the life of the societv has not changed with changing times. It has remained fixed on the firm foundation of wholesome traditions. It is refreshing to see that the Palladians of iqo8 hold the 246 JIaUa an Slitrranj nrirtii same simple ideals of social life that have been Held b Palladians since 1871. And it is not to be questioned that the society may fulfill as lofty a purpose in these days of student frivolity, by its advocacy and observance of sane and whole- some social ideals, as it fulfilled in former days in the development of literary ideals. The principal event of the year 1907 8 was the dedication of the new hall in the temple, an event which took place Xovcmber 8. The occasion was fitting ' y celebrated by more than a hundred Palladians and alumni, who partook of a fare- well banquet in the old home, the first Pa!ladia!i hall in the main building of the University, and then, led by Professor .Lawrence Fossler. and singing the Pal- ladian anthem, " " John Jones, " went to the new home and dedicated it to the use of Palladians of the future. The spacious new hall gained by the always loyal generosity of Palladian alunmi. beautifully furnished in the same spirit bv active members, stands as the right kind of memorial — one that expresses an honest pride in worthy achieve- ments of the past, and an unqiiestioning f;iith in tlie rightfulness ,- n( ' . permanence of Palladian ideals. 3alla tan Satuiitrt Ximrmbrr 8. 19nr Jfarruirll l.

Since that time it has made itself felt more and more as a live, active power among Universify women. Its primary object is the development of Christian character in its members and the prosecution of active Christian work among the young women of the institution. This is the third year t hat the Association has been under the direction of a general secretary. During this time every phase of the work has shown remarkable development. The membership this year has passed the tOO mark. The Bible study record also is high. There are twelve classes with a total enrollment of about 300 In mission study four courses are offered, and at the beginning of the second semester there were ninety enrolled in this work. The annual budget was increased this year to $1,]00. This money is raised largely by membership dues, senior pledges, faculty subscriptions, and contributions from associate and sustaining members. The financial condition of the Association has never been better. A new era is marked this year in the history of the . ssociation by the removal into the new rooms in the University Temple. The sum of $600 was raised as a furnishing fund, and the rooms are fitted up tastily and comfortably. Thev are open to all University women from eight o ' clock in the morning till ten at night. A fifteen-minute devotional meeting is held in the rooms each day at tlie noon hour. These noon meetings are well attended and thoroughly successful in every way. The social committee has given the usual number of social affairs this year — the opening reception, county fair, and May morning breakfast, besides numerous small informal parties and receptions. The College Settlement committee has conducted classes in kindergarten work, singing, sewing, and cooking at the Settlement House. Appro.ximately forty children have been reached in this work. The Young Women ' s Christian .Association stands, as it alwavs has stood, for all round Christian womanhood. Just in so far as it is promotinn- right ideals of Christian life and Christian service is it accomplishing its wor ' K in the University. mmt The Latin Club oi the Umversity of Nebraska was first organized in 1902 by the eftorts of Miss Xelhe Dean, .Nfrs. Ruth P.rvan Leavitt, and others who were esi eciallv interested in the work. In 1904 the club was reorganizcfl and a complete constitution adoptee. Jn this constitution the membership was limited to tAventy-five and was made to de- pend on scholarship, as it has ever since. Meetings are held " at the home of some member once a month and they are vers- interesdng and profitable. fhere are always one or two papers on some •subject bearing upon Latin language or history, ai:d Latin songs and conversation are often introduced. This year the practice was adopted of having quite a com- plete biography of some Roman writer at each meeting and also a translation of some short work not usually given in the class room. At one of the meetings last ye ar we were regaled with Roman wedding cake, and this aroused enthusiasm to plan for a Roman banquet to be held in the spring, which proved to be one of the most enjo}able times the club has ever had. It was o-iven at the home of Miss Long, and from the moment we caught sight cf the banquet tables until the last toast was finished we felt ourselves transported back to those days of old and in company with the famous men and women ot the time such as Cicero, Caesar, and Claudia. So great was our enjoyment that we decide.! at that time to make :t an an- nual event, and we are now making plans for the one this spring. According to our constitution eighty per cent of the dues are to be devoted to the purchase of some suitable memorial to be presented to the Latin depart- ment, and from this fund the club commi- sioned Professor Barber on his last trip abroad to purchase something to be used in this way. He decided upon the bust of the voung Augustus made bv Romanelli cf Florence, the original of which is in the Museum of the ' atican at Rome. This was discovered during the exca- vations made bv Ostia in i8g8. The bust is kept in Professor Barber ' s ofiice at the eastern end of the corridor on the second floor of the University Hall, anrl is a source of great admiration and pleasure to all. The officers of the club for the }-ear 1907-8 were as follows : First semester, president. Miss Strahorn : vice-president. Aliss Fossler : secretary and treasurer, [iss .Simmons. Second semester, president, iiss Thompson: vice-president, Miss DeLacy: secretary and treasurer, ] riss Patterson. The membership com- prises the following: TT . AT Honorary: Professor Barber.

The purpose of the club is to en- courage and de elop the creative and critical powers of its members and in a gen- eral wav to stimulate among- the student Ixx ' v of the I ' niversity further interest in literary matters. It holds fortnightly meetings either at the homes of its mem- bers or in the club rooms at the Temple, where original writings of the members — poems, short stories, criticisms and occasionally ])lHys — are read and, folloftving the remarks of the club critic, are submitted to a genera! criticism by the members. The program is always followed by an informal S(X-ial hour. Student members are chosen for llieir rdjililx ' and origina ' it ' in writing and criticism and their general scholarship. .Membership is by election.

J rORBST The i-oresiry course at Nebraska was estali ' isbed in the fall of 1903. at a time when the demand for trained foresters was rapidly increasing. Owing to such a late institution of this course in the University, but few trained foresters have been sent out from here. Yet those who have completed the work have proven themselves capable government foresters. Professor Miller, who had been in charge of this department since its estab- lishment, resigned siimnier, and Professor Thiilips, a graduate of Michigan Forest School, was appointed to succeed him. With such an ener- getic person as he at the head of our depaniiKiii tlK-rc i certainly an optimistic outlook for the future of this work here. T he Forest Club is an organization the members of which arc specializing in forestry or kindred subjects. The club holds regular meetings every two weeks at which various papers dealing with forest topics are read. Printed programs of these meetings are published at the beginning of each semester, and we are proud to sa - that ours is the iirst forest club to have these printed programs made in advance and then carefull - carried out. ii uumaru iWniilirni Ch- ' xcellor E.

The Univeisit - has a great number of student organiza- tions uniting in a common purpose those of common interests, but it has only recently gi en birth to the organization known as the Divinity Club. The importance and need of such an organization in the University has been recognized for sev- eral }ears and repeated ertorts have been made for its realiza- tion. This year the c[uestion was again taken up by a number of the students, and with the help and encouragement of (.. " han- cellor Andrews a constitution was drawn up and organization effected March 9, 1908. The following gentlemen were elected as the tirst officers: W. B. Kline, president: H. ] I. Scott, vice-president; R. M. AlacDonald. secretary-treasurer ; and J. S. Elliott, librarian. Twelve men sub- scribed to the constitution as charter members. Every man taking work -n the University whose purpose it is to enter the Christian ministry as a life calling is an eligible candidate for membership. By virtue of the constitution the Chan- cellor of the University and the president of the Young " Men ' s Christian Asso- ciation are honorary members. Professors F. C. French, E. L. Hinman. F. A. Stuff were also elected to this relationship. The object of the club as defined by the constitution is, first, to unite in fellow- ship and miitual help all University men looking forward to the Christian ministry as a life work: second, definitely to present to Christian college men the claims and opportunities of the ministry of today : third, to invite men of recognized abilitx ' and authority to address the club at its regular monthly meetings on stjch themes as shall be of vital importance and interest to the present-day minister. A two-days institute in the spring is a feature from which much help is expected. W. B., President H. M. ScDTT, ' ice-Pres. R. M.

Gradually has the number of Iowa students increased until todav the ' are a prominent factor in ail the various phases of University life. Largely through the special efforts of Mrs. Laurence Bruner. the club was organized lay 21, 1904. and adopted the name of " Hawkeye. " Its purpose is to bring the Iowa students into closer touch with one another, not onlv to form new acquaintances, but also to continue former ones. It does not intend to form a faction of Iowa students or in any way decrease their lo alty to the University of Nebraska, but rather to make their stay here a more congenial one by welcom- ing new students and introducing them to " folks from home " who have been here long enough to be of aid to them in adjusting themselves to their new surroundings. l " he club is purely social in character, membership Ix ' ing oj en to all those who are or have been residents of Iowa. The faculty of the Universitv is well represented in the club, many of the best icnown professors being Hawkeves. Among the members of the club are included some of the well-known people of Lincoln, at whose homes the club meets several times each vear. The club has recently been entertained by Professor and Mrs. Chatburn, Professor and Mrs. Bruner. Mr. and Irs. T. F. A. Williams, an ' l Professor and Mrs. E. H. Barbour. The organization is in a prosperous and flourishing condition, and the active interest taken by the resident members, the faculty members, and the University students assures a bright future. 3Firat rinrstrr Elmer V.

John Sherlock, and Gertrude Radema- cher, all of the class of 1906. Previous to this time several attempts had been made to establish a club whose aims were similar to those now realized in the present organization. Owing to the small number of Catholic students however, nothing pemianent was accomplished. The great increase in the number of Cath- olics in the University has offered a new advantage and incentive and has resulted m the present club. The purpose of the club is to secure definite cooperation in the promulgation of Catholic literature, the study cf Christian doctrine and the promotion of social intercourse the members. During the present school year several lectures have been given under the auspices of the club by prominent laymen as well as by student members. Two classes have been successfully conducted under the direction of alumni members by means of which students have been given an opportunity to study Christian doctrine. Programs of a literary and musical nature have been given at regular intervals, and besides this the members of the club have enjoyed several verj- de- lightful social functions. The club has rendered valuable service in the establishment of similar organ- izations in the normal schools of the state. The. ' e institutions sent delegates to Lincoln on the T5th of last February, who met with representatives from the local organization. . t this gathering a constitution was adopted for what is now known as the Nebraska Federation of Catholic Students ' Clubs. Tt is believed that this federation will materially strengthen the cause of Catholicity in our state institutions. Following is a list of the ofriccrs for the vear IQ07-8: JliirHt ftrmfstrr George L.

Shr (CoUriXf Eiiual uffrai S raiuu - - Ullip (Tnllriir Squal i ' uffragr ICragitP The University of Nebraska League for Jiqiial Suffrage was organized Feb- ruary 24, 1908, under the influence of Jrs. Maude Wood Park, Radchffe ' 98, representing the national collegiate and professional league for equal suffrage. ■J " he charter members, of the personnel of whom the league is very proud, num- ber forty. Various reasons led these members to join, one of the first of which was the recognition of their own obligation for their educational opportunities, and in general for their various privileges today, to the equal suffrage movement of the past. This is hardly the place for much discussion, but a few things for which the members stand may be indicated. They believe that just because women are unlike men, and have dift ' erent interests and dift ' erent needs, they should have direct political representation. It is rightly said that women ' s sphere is mainly the home ; yet there is hardly a department of the home, from matters of proper sanitation and pure food to the education of children, unaffected by municipal or national politics. The " influence " ' kind of representation, the only kind which women now have, is not only needlcssl)- indirect and slow, but it is the kind ex- erted by the lobbyist. It is less self-respecting, and in reality less dignified. ' ' omen constitute half the human race, and are as vitally interested as men in the support of salutary legislation. It may not longer be urged against them that they are uneducated, for it seems to be true that more girls than boys are now graduated from the secondary schools. It is tnie also that women have always contributed the smallest percentage to the criminal classes. Probably few women woulcl ever care to hold office, unless those exceptionally fitted, and these should have the right to do so if they desire it and can well serve society. In the states having already equal suft ' rage, women have not flocked into public life. But. in any case, those who have studied the movement in its larger aspects or in its rela- tion to history-, know that, popular belief to the contran-, it is not the wish to seek office or to vote merely for the voting ' s sake that impels the equal suffragists to support their cause. A few women may desire political equality from restless- ness or from shallow egotism, but the majority of representative suffragfists are prompted by far other reasons. The University of Xebraska League for Equal Suffrage has conducted no campaign for converts; but if it did. it would direct its efforts, not among the men, although it is they from whom etjualitv will have to come, but among women. It was the sense of fair play on the part of the men. especially a few that saw ahead of their time, that brought to women the privileges already granted them ; privileges that, despite alarmed prophecies, have not proved inexpedient for so- ciety. It was their generosity and sense of justice which has made life freer and broader for women in this country than for those of any other country in the world. The majoritv of men are not hostile to the movement, though thev mav, quite naturally, be indifferent. Just now it is women themselves who do most to retard their own cause. The special betes iwirs of the .suffragists are those women who. happening to be well supportefl themselves, who " have all thev want " — often 270 ahr (Hullcur tqual uftraiir iCraiuir iiiorc ilian llic - have earned or desevvi — refuse to recos ' iiize that there nia - be cither women not so situated, to whom direct poHtical representation would afford protection and assistance ; other women ' . h, with reason do ask and should have that representation for themselves. ' I ' here are nvnv six millions of self-sujiporti-ig women in this ccjuntrv engaged in industries and professions, and they deserve voice in maUing the laws under which the have to work. Another class of re- tarders whose attitude is really less e. cusal)le consists of women wlio have Ix-en " ■lad to avail themselves of the onporiunities for higher education won for them, many of whom will be glad to engage in sojue of the various occupations now open to them, but who feel no wish to acknowledge ap[)reciation or indebtedness, still less to assist in the widening of life for women in the future until final equal- ity under the law has been attained. Manv absurd affirmations which ought i) this lime to be oljsolete but which are not — those, for instance, to the effect llvt ihe enfranchisement of women would take the food out of the mouths of men or destroy homes or bring the death of chivalrv, or that women, because of the inherent weakness of their sex, would soon use the ballot, if they had it, to the ruin of society — may be answered mo ;t quickly bv noting conditions in the western states having alreadv equal suffrage, where men are still able to find employment, where homes are still intact, where the spirit of chivalry in the treatment of women is stronger than in the east or the south, and where, not precipitate or liarmful, but excellent legislation con- cerning chieflv women and children lias been brought about through the efforts of women. A few things the members of the college league for equal suft ' rage are glad to think, whether the political equality movement wins in the lifetime of this gen- eration — it will finally — or whether it does not. They have looked ahead with faith in their sex, not distrust of it : they have not rested complacent in tlie pres- ent. Thev are glad to think that the okl vi ' ords noblesse obli ' c have had some meaning for them. They are glad to realize that they have registered themselves as svmpathizing with the party of progress instead of trying to belittle or to re- tard it, or instead of remaining among those who have been willing enough to receive but never to lend a hand in assisting a movement by which they have been glad to profit. ©ffirrrs FI.F.

Gi _ In the early days of the L ' niversity, the ' rhurus work was car- ried on under the direction of Mrs. Cochran [engendtirf. She was succeeded in 1884 by Mrs. Carrie B. Raymond, who has had con- tinuous charge of the work ever since. It was. however, only re- cently, — about two years ago — that the chorus was organized into what is now- called a Choral Society, with officers and such other alflictions as " dues. " ' J ' he society now meets in the new Temple Building and under such agreeable surroundings finds the work much easier. It was. however, not easy to take leave of the old chapel room where the chorus had held forth for so many years. Each year, besides the regular v.-ork, the society enjoys many delightful social occasions ; among these are such events as parties, spreads, picnics, and even sleigh rides when the winter permits. At all these gatherings, as well as at the regular tri-weekly meetings, Mrs. Raymond is the inspiration of the enjoyment as well as the work. Her influence, power, and ability are shown in the interest taken by the members. Besides the regular inembers who receive credit for their work there are manv others who enjoy the work so much that they attend whenever possible, although they are granted no credit in the registrar ' s office. Under Mrs. Raymond ' s direction, works from the following composers have been given with orchestral accompaniment : Hay- den, Mendelsohn, Cowen, Glade, and others. It has become the annual custom to give a portion of Handel ' s Messiah on the last convocation preceding the Christmas holidavs. This rendition of the Messiah has almost become a regular tradition of the Univer- sity, and each year the old chapel is crowded to the doors to hear the work of the trained chorus, and soloists of more than local repu- tation. For the last two years the May Festival has become a fea- ture of the University year. At this afTair the chonis. accompanied hv the Thomas Orchestra of Chicago and several eastern soloists, has given the I niversity, as well as the citv, a veritable feast of music. Last year. Taylor ' s " Hiawatha ' s Wedding Feast " and " Fair Ellen " ' were rendered in a way that brought credit both to the sing- ers and their director.

It is trne, however, that student ekibi had handled debating to a certain extent, yet without n.ny system or apparent success. But after the work was taken up by Professor M. M. I ' ogg, and thoroughly sys- tematized, there followed a series of nine successive victories which placed Ne- braska debaters in a class distinctly their own in the West. Consequently those in charge looked for greater fields of conquest. This was found in the consummation of the Central Debating Circuit. Its membership embraces five of the strongest state universities in the country : Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota. Nebraska, and W ' iscon- sin. By the arrangement of this circuit five debates are held each year on the same evening and on the same question, each university being represented by two teams, one debating the affirmative and one the ne.gative side of the question. The thirteenth annual debate in which the University of Nebraska took part was held in Memorial Hall, December 13, 1307. While Swenson, Frerichs. and Elliott were competing against Iowa on the home platform, King, ] IcWhinney, and Weaver were fighting against linnesota at Minneapolis. The Iowa team was sent home with the unanimous decision against them, while the boys at Minneapolis were defeated bv a vote of two to one. Nebraska stood highest of all the mem- bers of the circuit because she received four votes out of a possible six. whUe the others only received three. The men who represented Nebraska this past year were men of high stand- ing as students as well as men of strength in all student activities. Of the eight men who composed the two teams this year, three were Phi Beta Kappa men, Swenson. King, and Yoder, while two others. Frerichs and McWhinney, are men that have won prizes in the law school for high scholarship. It is true that noth- ing prepares a man better for good, systematic work in any subject than debating. It stimulates thorough and deep thinking. The representatives in the two debates this year were strong upon the plat- form. Robert I. Ell ' ott won his place on the Iowa team largely bv his very force- ful and earnest delivery. He has a manner which is convincing and persuasive. Martin Frerichs. another member of the Iowa team, is one of the clearest i:hinkers representing Nebraska this year. He rendered valuable service in disposing of legal difficulties. W. R. King, the leader of the Minnesota team, was a tower of strength both in his delivery and in rapid analysis of the questions. His abilitv to strike the vulnerable points in the opponents ' arguments made him invaluable. King has represented the University for two years in debate. J. M. Swenson. leader of the Iowa team and the " old war horse " of Universitv debating, has rep- resented Nebraska in debates ever since he entered the institution. His work this year was a fitting climax to four years of high class debating, C. C. McWhinncv, member of the Minnesota team, has been n first-class student and was a strong member of his team. He is very aggressive, and presents his thoughts in a clear and concise manner. Lawrence ' ' eaver. another man who fought with King against Tinnesota, is a product of Beatrice High .School. Although Weaver is only a Sophomore, he is proving himself excejitionally strong, especially in his delivery, which is effective and convincing. All in all X ' ebraska was never represented bv six stronger men than during the year just past. R. A. A,xr)RSDEL. itram fflhirli Drluitrft -Duum SWKXSDX. Y iI)i;r. IClukitt.

I I IT IT I I II If r 846 abr tCuuiUilattmi elir (Cmtanlatuin .Mrs. AngL-lina I ' iper. a thin and wrinkled middle-aged woman with jet-glass ear-rings, sighed as she untied the strings of her crepe bonnet. Then she shoved her rocking chair nearer the open kitchen door, sighed again, and raised a black- bordered handkerchief to her eyes. " It " s awf ' .iUy good of you, dear .Maria, " she said to her friend, " to always be so illin " to listen to my troubles. I hope I do n " t bother you settin " here in llie kitchen while you " re so busy cookin ' . Honestly, it seems like I could n ' t get along without talldn ' things over with someliodv. And so — I jest have to step in and see vou each Saturday when I come to town, for — ' " Talk all vou want to, .Angelina, " interrupted old Mrs. Watson as she peered into the oven to test her cake v%-ith a broom-straw " Listenin ' is cheap, so go on talkin " . I " m sorrv T did n " t get thru with mv Saturda - bakin ' this forenoon. The kitchen ' s pretty hot for you now. I guess. See, it ' s light as a feather. I Ml jest set it here to cool a bit before I frost it. Now what was you a-sayin ' , . ' Angelina ? " It was as easy for dear old .Mrs. Watson to become the receptacle for her friend ' s griefs as it was necessary for ' the widow to have a sympathetic dumping ground for all of her troubles. Mrs. Piper needed no further urging. There was a second or so of silence while her friend carefully deposited the cake on the table, ar.d then the widow rocked out her woes. " )h dear! oh dear! " she wailed. " There ' s no use talkin ' . Maria, nobody ever had so much trouble as me. My dear Peter in the ground and me here rll alone. If I ' ve wished once that I was d.cad, I ' ve wished it a thousand tinies. What shall I do? Oh. what shall 1 do ' " " Why. Angelina, you ought to be thankful that ou haint been left rale poor. " began Mrs. Watson, but Mrs. Piper interrupted her with: " That ' s jest it. There are so ma?ry things to be looked after and I do n ' t know what to do with ' em all. There ' s Speck and her little calf, the blind mare and the twin colts: there ' s the oxen and the ten pigs my poor husband bought last fall — and then the farm — oil dear me! how can a woman like me be expected to run things right? Xo strong arm to lean upon and it ' s so lonesome ' ivin ' all by myself, for 1 tell you, Maria, a widder can ' t toll who to trust. " Why. the other night Job Boles called on n e and he staid till nine o ' clock He talked and talked and talked. I thought he ' d never gc. He wanted to buy my stock. He said he ' d pay cash or give his note. Put. dear me ! I dare n ' t do it. He ' d cheat me on half a chance. My poor dear Peter never had no faith ni Job Boles, so I shan ' t sell him a thing.

" Glhr (rmtanlatton - ' i ' The following Saturday afternoon found Mrs. Piper as usual at Mrs. Wat- son ' s home. The old lady was carefully placing the last few stitches in a black stocking whose mate lay neatly mended on her knee. As she bit ofif the last needle- ful of darning cotton she noticed that JNIrs. Piper sat stiffly erect in the rocking chair. The visitor ' s eyes sparkled angrily. " Miv, Angelina, " exclaimed Mrs. Watson, " something ' s upsot you. I knowed ou was excited when you opened the door, but I thought perhaps you was jest tired from ridin " to town this hot day. But it ' s more than — " " Yes, Maria, I am upsot — and mad, loo. " ' interrupted Mrs. Piper vigorously. " And I get madder each time I think about it. (T can ' t stay long today, but I jest must tell you what happened last night.) The cheek that some men ' s got beats ine. (This is Gospel truth I ' m tellin ' you, so listen, Maria.) Job Boles actually came to my house again — yesterday evenin ' — and this time he staid till after ten. He was bound and determined to buy or rent mv farm. He coaxed and teased and tried to make me give in. He said there wan ' t a farm in the comity that so exactly suited him as mine. Do you reckon I ' d let him have it? Indeed not: I ' m thankful I " ve got some .sense left. ATy poor dear Peter never believed Job ' s word, so why should I? He ' d cheat me on the price, I ' m certain. If I went halves in crops, he ' d be sure to scheme for more ' n his share. Oh I know that man through and through. I hriin ' t lived nigh his farm fifteen vears for nnthin ' . Indeed I know him — so did n;y poor dear Peter. Xo. Job Boles shan ' t have my farm at any price, and he ' d better leave me alone. " As Mrs. Piper relieved her mind of its indignation, her sallow face resumed its usual sad expression and her eyes filled with tears. In spite of Mrs. Watson ' s protestations, .she arose, saying, " Yes, I ' V have to go, Maria. I wish I could stay longer, but I can ' t. Oh, I see plainly now that I never can trust any man again. If only dear Peter had not died ! It seems like twenty years instead of four months this June since he went from me and I miss him more and more every day. Oh. what will become of me, livin ' the rest of my lifetime all, all alone! " When the second consecutive week ' s end failed to bring her customarv Sat- urday caller, Airs. Watson was anxious. " I ' m afeerd .Vngelina ' s sick abed, ' ' the old lady said aloud tc herself, as she gave the last swish of her broom to the front porch, over and around wdiich ram- bled a profusion of June roses. Then she looked down the village street. " It ' s nearly six and she hain ' t come yet. She ' s probably worried and worried till she can ' t set up — jest like her to make herself sick that way. Well the poor woman does have a lonesome time since Peter Piper died, but there ' s others as has — Why, who ' s that coniin ' around the corner? I don ' t seem to recognize that hat. Why. bless my soul, it ' s a new one and .Angelina ' " s wearin ' it. There ' s a purple bow on the front of her dress, too — that ' s second mournin ' . I suppose. Well, that do beat me! " " Dear Alaria. I can hardly wait to -ee you, " was Airs, . ngelina Piper ' s eager greeting as she grasped her friend by the arm. You set over there in that chair by the window and I ' 11 set here b - this table. I ' ve somethin " more to tel! yon this time and do n ' t you sav a word till I ' m clean through talkin " . I did n ' t come 348 aiikp Until iHnsrs to town last week — I was too lieartsick to care whether 1 ever came again or not. But 1 " ve made up my mind, Maria, that it ' s wicked of nie to feel that wax-. 1 " ni not going to complain any more. J ' ve come to be thinkin " that I ' ve many mer- cies left. I believe I ' rovidence know-s what ' s best when He sends us our tribu- lations, don ' t you? There ' s surely some good to come out of " cm all. My trials has shown me one thing at least and that is that there ' s some as is real true friends. So I w on ' t wish my departed husband ' oack again. I ' m sure he ' s en- joyin ' a better world than this. Yes, I ' ve decided it hain ' t treatin ' the Lord right for me to keep on complainin ' . There. I knew you ' d be glad to hear me say this. -Maria, but wait — I ' m not through tellin ' vou ail yet. " and Mrs. Piper ' s withered cheek reflected a faint shade of the blush roses that filled a vase on the table at her side as she continued. " Last night Job Boles came to my house again, and he staid till after ttvclrc. He did n ' t care about my cattle nor my farm — this time it was me. He wanted me to be his wife. If I refused, he said he ' d never be happy again. He said that for my sake he was willin ' to take care of all my stock and the farm. He had been noticin ' how heavy this burden was restin ' on me. He was anxious for my sake, he said, to carry such burdens on his owr strong shoulders. Yes ' m — them ' s his very words, ain ' t they beautiful? You can easily see how unselfish he was, thinkin ' only about me. " It ' s this way, too, you see, Alaria, Job hain ' t never had much hankerin ' after marriage — (he ' s past forty-six, I ' m only fortv-nine) — but now he ' s come to believe that the Lord never meant for man to live alone. He said I jest had to marry him, for he could n ' t live if I did n ' t. Jest think how dreadful he must feel ! " Bless his dear unselfish heart ! I would n ' t dare to flv in the face of Provi- dence — that would be cruel, besides may be temptin ' the Almightv. Oh, the Lord has been mighty good to a poor widow like me in her loneliness. • ' And so, Mana. T told Jnh ■Yes. ' " Edith Llxile Ror.mxs. IGikr Into Masts Young yhs. Turner ' s e}cs were brimming with tears, and young Mr. Turner was thinking how pretty she looked when she cried. Xot that he was actually taking pleasure in her grief — that would be brut.-d — but a certain amount of lubri- cation or irrigation — ' " shov ers of spring " and all th; ' t. are necessary, it seems, to keep the feminine nature sweet and tender. Therefore he is fortunate whose wife ' s e}es don ' t get an ugly red or her nose swollen and purple when the gentle moisture flows. The body of a maltese kitten lay stretched out on the rug — and Mrs. Turner knelt mournfully l eside it. " I ' m going to miss her awfully. Fred. It was such a sudden thing. What do you suppose could have been the cause ? She .seemed perfectly well yesterday. " Mrs. Turner ' s voice was soft and tremulous — " liquid music " her husband mentally conjmented — he had only been married two months, . loud he said : iHikt Hutu Masts 349 " .Must have eaten something. " .Mrs. Turner was too young to have become faniiHar with this invariable masculine txDl?.nation of " everv ill that flesh is heir to. •She considered it. " Do you suppose it was a mouse? She wasn ' t old enough for such strong food, I iust know, but she was so ambitious — she would catch them. " .A. plaintive little sigh ended the sentence. After a pause she went on. " But where are we going to bury her, Fred? Every inch of the yard u paved with brick and the landlord would claim damages if we dug it up. Could n ' t you take her out to the park and make a little grave under the trees, when the policeman wasn ' t looking? " " But he would be looking, pet, and I VI be run in for a suspicious cliaracter. Besides, you know, I do n ' t get away from the office until after dark these short days and the ground is frozen hard as a stone. I could n ' t make a dent in it. " " Then — oh, I " red, I can ' t, I can ' t throw poor Flulf out on the ash-heap like a common alley-cat. Aly little pet kitten! " and ]Mrs. Turner b egan to sob. Tears may be at times charming, but sobs are distressing. Turner spurred his wits, trving to think of some solution of the difficulty. " We might hire a man to take her out into the country somewhere and burv her, " he suggested presently. ' " Xo, we mightn ' t, " was the answer. " He ' d just throw poor little Fluff in the first alley he came to and go off laughing :it me. I do n ' t want Fluff thrown in an alle}-, and I do n ' t want to be laughed at. " Suddenly Turner ' s face lightened, but almost as quicklv clouded again. He ttood regarding Mrs. Turner with a doubtful, questioning look. " One thing we could do, " he began slowly. " You know where sixteenth street crosses Swan river — whenever I walk to the office I cross that bridge, and — well, many a good man has been ' consigned to the bosom of the deep ' vou know, why not — " He broke off and waited for his wife to say something. She was quiet a moment, then she murmured reflectively : " I believe that would be best, Fred. If it was an ugly river I do nt believe I could do it — Fluff ' was always so dainty ; but it goes away out into the country where there are n ' t any factories or .invthing and she ' d be carried out among the flowers and grasses — " ;Mrs. Turner went away to get a piece of something warm and soft to wrap the little body in. Turner hunted for a good-sized niece of brown paper and some .stout string. ; Irs. Turner wanted a box, but that would be likely to float and attract attention and then poor Fluff ' s rest would be cruelly disturbed. At last the preliminary wrappings were finished and the brown paper parcel, which was the final evolution, looked as little like the remains of a dead kitten as it was possible to imagine. In the morning Turner left the house, carrying the package under his arm. He started out briskly for the two-mile walk to his office. Just before he reached the Swan river bridge something hajjpened to remind him that Grimm Co. had asked for an extension on their account. Would it be best to grant it or not? He turned the question over and over in bis vnind and presentlv found himself at his 350 Cikr lltttu Ifluara office — his brown paper parcel still under his ; rni. He had crossed Swan river without ever thinking about it. " VVell, no matter, ' " he said to hin:self, " I ' 11 gti rid of it on my way home tonight. " When closing time came he started out for home, again carrying his burden. Just as he reached the first corner he foiuid one of his friends waiting for a street car. " Aw, come on and ride home. Turner, " was the greeting: " I know you be- lieve m exercise, but I ' ve got rheumatism tonight and do n ' t fee! ' ike walking. Besides, there ' s a little matter I want to talk to you about. " " AH right, " answered Turner, again forgetting all about the cat. " I do n ' t care if I do ride, I ' m pretty tired mvs-. ' lf. " As he started to take out his latch ' key. on arriving home, he av.oke to the fact that Fluff was still with him. He .stared at the parcel in dismay. Had the old man of the sea taken the form of a dead cat ' It began to seem fairly un- canny. Irs. Turner met him in the hall. She noted his shame-faced expression and his awkward attempt to hide something. " Why. Fred. " she exclaimed, and then repeated in a different tone: " AN ' h}-. Fred! ' " Yes, dear, I know, " he answered helolessly. " T forget it both times. I ' 11 remember it sure in the morning. ' ' Looking down at the parcel he observed that the string had nearly slipped off and the paper was much loosened. " Better make it tidy for the final trip. " he remarked, and placing the package on the hall table proceeded to unroll it, preparatory to doing it up more securely. Mrs. Turner started away to see abopt ser ' ing dinner at once. She had only gone a few steps when a horrified exclamation from her husband brought her running back to his side. There on the table lay — not the swathed fomi of her pet kitten, but a fine fresh roasting piece of beef ! " Fred ! " she gasped, " why, I thought v u had brought Fluff ' back again. " " So did I, " was the mystified rejoinder. " Then what — where in the world — how do you come to have this? " " The Lord only knows ; some fellow must have exchanged with me either at the office or on the car. " " Who do you suppose it was, Fred ? " " Haven ' t the least idea, but I ' 11 bet he ' ll be a mighty surprised man when he finds out what he ' s got. " " And we ' ll never, never know what became of mv poor kitten. " Mrs. Tur- ner was waxing sorrowful again. " Where ignorance is bliss, " Turner inv. ' ard ' y remarked, " it is folly to be wise. " Then aloud, putting his arm about his wife ' s slim waist, " Pet. wasn ' t it ] Toses whose sepulchre no man knoweth unto this day ? Fluff " " s in a prettv high class, seems to me. " And Mrs. Turner was comforted. N. B. P.

LAW ' ■ ICrnal tthicB ICrgal ttlnrs The subject of legal ethics is before the bar of the comitrv for serious consideration just now because the American Bar Association is preparing a written code of ethics which it hopes to get the various state bar associations to adopt and to make effective. As legal ethics is a subject which every law student should reflect upon as early and as often as possible, it deserves special mention in the Law College space in the Corkhusker. Despite what is said about lawyers by the unthinking, and despite the commercializing tendencies discernible in the lawyers of today, the fact remains that lawyers on the whole are moral and high-minded in professional affairs, and that it is only in particular lines of legal endeavor that the unrighteous lawyer can achieve even the semblance of a permanent financial or other professional success. Ihe unscrupulous so-called " criminal lawyer " (who deserves his title in both senses of the term I. and the lawyer who makes money by an am- bulance-chasing system of getting clients — wl ' .o rew;rd him with large contingent fees, often give the young lawyer the same distorted view of the moral attitude of the bar which some laymen have of it. but a larger experience enables him to relegate these objectionable lawyers to their relatively unimportant position at the bar. There is so much said about the different phases of legi ' l ethics that one is aot to over- look the vital point. The importance of the various matters of professional good taste, of courteous behavior towards all, and of high-minded dealings with clients which should gov- ern the lawyers ' conduct and which are so much discussed in books on legal ethics must not be under-estimated; but the fundamental danger to be emphasized is something far more serious. The temptation which constantly besets the lawyer is subornation of perjury, — not of the kind that would be provable in any court e.scept the court of conscience, but never- theless a genuine kind. What makes the ambulance-chasMig seeker after contingent fees such an objectionable individual is mainly the anioimt of fictitious claims which he persuades people to make and the amount of false testimony with which those claims are bolstered up in order to make the fee as large as possible. So " , too, the viciousness of the argument thai a lawyer may with a free conscience defend a client in a criminal case when he knows that the client is guilty lies in its justification of the conscious participation of the lawyer in per- jured testimony. While subornation of perjury is peculiarly apparent in the career of the ambulance chaser and of the unscrupulous criminal lawyer, it should be noted, however, that the temptation to let a client or a witness stretch the trutl " . to gain a point orescnts itself with greater or less frequency to every lawyer. The stateinent of the American Bar Associatiop s co-nmiltee on Professional Ethics, " that many men depart from honorable and acceptable standards of practice early in their careers as the result of actual ignorance of the ethical requirements of the situation " — a state- ment which calls upon every law teacher to see that his students at least do not err for want of enlightenment — makes it important to warn those who are to enter the legal profession of this very insidious temptation. Forewarned of the temptation which besets the lawyer to take unfair advantage of his client and of others, the voung lawyer is so forearmed against the teinptalion as to find it relatively easy to overcome. He should be helped just as much against tlie recurring temptation to countenance and further perjury. Fortunately for him the great majority of his professional bretiircn are setting him tlu riyht kind of expmple by honorable and professional practice. Geo. p. Costig. x. Jr. alir iSanuf (tmitVnnirr 359 ISrintUs iif thr iSrrrnt (Unufrrrnrr at thr league We are told by the casual observer, that most inaccurate and omnipresent of individtials, that the recent Hague conference was a farce. This may be due to the fact that it is difficult for many to realize that success and failure are relative terms. Partisans of a given plan are very prone to think that if they do not get everything they had hoped for, they are not getting anything at all. Remember- ing this tendency in human nature, it is not stu ' prising that many .should conclude that the recent Conference at 1 he Hague was a farce because ii refused or failed to adopt some of the plans v.hich to their minds seem sufficient to usher in an era of universal and perpetual peace. To a very different class it seems to have been a farce because of a conviction upon their part that no matter what it did, its action would have had no practical effect. To such it was from the start destined to failure. Before expressing an opinion uDon the views of these extremists let us look at the facts. The Conference unanimously adopted a resolution providing for the appli- cation of the rules of the Geneva Convention to land warfare : and for the appli- cation of the principles involved in them to naval warfare. True, some nations had previously bound themselves to observe these rules, but several had not. Hence, to those who believe that the humanizing of war is a desirable thing and that an advance in international law can accomplish something in this direction, the action of the Conference relative to the rules of land and !iaval warfare wi! be looked upon as a distinct advance. To those who do not look upon the hu- manizing of war as an achievement worthv of effort, the conventions on this sub- ject will be looked upon as either useless or mischievous. There are those who believe that war should be made as terrible as possible in order to hasten its dis- appearance. But the facts of history do not bear out this theory any more than they do the theory that lynchings and revolting legal penalties lessen crime. Whatever brutalizes men or nations increases the chances of an appeal to force rather than reason as a means of settling controversies. Though war can never he abolished so long as any nation insists upon appealing to force, the movement away from barbarous practices is a much more hopeful sign than is a movement in the opposite direction or a determination to maintain the stains quo. The declaration in favor of the inviolability of neutral territory was an ap- proval of a principle which, though not new. needed emphasizing. This endorse- ment of the principle will keep the violations of it by Japan in Korea and by Rus- sia in China from being considered as evidence that the principle has been abandoned. The assertion of the general principle was followed by the specific declaration that belligerents are prohibited from installing radio-telegraphic sta- tions on neutral territory, as was done by Russia in China. The Conference failed to agree upon the .American proposition to abolish the capture of all private property at sea. contraband excepted. But it received the approval of a large majority of the delegations. And this may justly be said to be the strongest endorsement which it has vet received. While I can see no suffi- cient reason whv this proposition should not have received unanimous approval, I do not share the view of those who assert that no progress has been made. The consideration given to the question will contribute to the final adoption of the rule. The convention providing that either a declaration of war, or an ultimatum containing a conditional declaration, must precede wai. is a salutarv check upon a growing practice in the opposite direction. 360 (ihr ffiauur (Cmifrrnur Substantial advance was made in the direction of encouraging the use of good offices and mediation. 1 lie Mrst Conference stopped with the averment that the tendering- of good offices with a view to preventing war is useful. The Second Conference went a step further and declared such action to be not only useful hut desirable. That considerable can be accomplished in this wa . when the work is undertaUen in the right s] " irii, has been repeatedly tlemonstrated within the past few years by the experience of the United .States in furtherance of pacific relations between Latin-American slates. With this record before them, the delegates advocating the amendment coyld readily acquit themselves of the charge of being impractical dreamers or promoters of a mischievous policy of intervention. Mr. Chelate ' s proposition for the establishnu-nt of a permanent court of arbi- tration was defeated mainly because of the insistence of Latin-American delega- tions that each of the forty-four states should be represented on the bench. Such a proposition was too much of a shock to the nervous system of those Eurooean states whose re-spect for the judicial temperament of Latin-American statesmen is not such as to withstand a great deal without breaking down under it. Whether or not the plan would have been ailopted had it not been hand-caijped with such impedimenta, it is impossible to say; but even the diplomacv of Choate could not save it from the hands of its friends, such a load wouKl have sunk a navy. One of two things must happen before a permanent court of arbitration can be made a tribunal of world-wide jurisdiction. — either it must be relieved of the above requirement as to representation or there must come a revision amounting to a revolution in the European estimate of the juristic attainments of Latin- Americans. The attempt to substitute com])u!sory for optional arbitration was untimely born and perished. Little besides confusion can be e.vpected of a law. whether municipal or international, which is very nuich in advance of public opinion. Xor is it open to very grave doubt that the Conference went as far as public opinion would warrant by agreeing that compulsory arbitration x applied without re- striction to the settlement nf " differences in interpretation and application of con- ventional stiijulations. " In this modified form the proposition received the ap- proval of all but four of the delegations. General Porter ' s proposition to do away with armed force for the recovery of contractual debts due from one government to the citizens or government of another country received the approval of thi ' .ty-nine out of the forty-four delega- tions. This proposition undoubtedly ijossesscd the greatest political significance of any presented to the Conference. Its bearing on the political ]olicy which we call the Monroe Doctrine is too clear to admit of doubt. The unanimous agreement of the Conferer.ce iii favor of establishing an in- ternational I ' rize Court is an achievement which furnishes sufficient ju-;tification for the meeting of the Conference. L ' n to the present the judge in prize cases has been virtually a party to suit, because it is difficult, arid in most cases impos- sible for a judge not to make his country ' s cause his own cause, and as men do not make good judges in their own cause, the chances of securing justice are greatly increased by the substitution of an international for the national prize courts. XN ' ith these facts before us we can readily see that while the ])essimist may find some food which suits his taste, the optimist can find considerably more. While not evervthing was accomplishet ' v.hich under nwe favorable conditions, i. e. under a fuller assurance uj-ion the p?rt of the delegations that public opinion demanded more, enough was done so that it is hv no means in accord with the ullir (6rcat Caiitju ' r 361 facts to call the Conference a farce or anvthinp ' ajJiiroachinq- a far ' -c. It is en- tirelv possible that more woiikl have been accon.iplished had there been a more equitable basis of representation or liad the leadership been entrusted to some state other than Russia, but this criticism should not blind us to the fact tliat sub- stantial progress was made. Such matters fhould be considered carefully when the next Conference is called, but they should not be permitted to intrude them- selves into the work of taking an inventory of what was accomplished by the re- cent Conference, as such intrusion is sure to promote confusion rather than clearness. Americans ma - take a jiardonable pride in the fact that the part played bv our oavn delegation was in all cases creditable and that the success of the Con- ference was due in large part to their wise. firn:. and dijilomatic efforts. Edwin AIaxey. She (Srrtit IGamurr One of the greatest bijoks of the world sa s, " Each man is of the same nature as that ideal on which his faith is fixed. " This does not mean that when one em- braces an ideal he becomes it at once. He may be very far from it. But it does mean that, however profounrl his learning, however acute his understanding, however logical his mind, however great his industry, he can not become a dif- ferent man than he really is inside, for the stream can not rise higher than its source; and " each man is of the same nature as the ideal on which his faith is fixed. " There are men who will reail these words, whose marks have not been high, who have not in themselves any idea that thev can become great lawyers ; but every man should bring out the best that is in him, and no one can tell what is really best in him until he has really tried to bring it forth. The law student should have in himself, therefore, the ideal of a great law cr, and he should do his best to make that ideal actual in his life. Xow, what are some of the cliaracteristics of a great lawver? Or, to make the answer to my question a little easier to make clear, what are some of the char- acteristics of the great lawyer of the immediate future? One thing needs to be said at the outset, which is : Great learning in the law is highly desirable, yet it is not of so great importance as the legal mind. It was said of the great Chief Justice Shaw of the supreme judicial court of Mas- sachusetts that he would have been a great lawyer had he been born on a desert island where there were no law books. He had a constructive legal mind. Most men can not in one lifetime make themselves entirelv over, but this much must be said, that the problem does not present the kind of difficult - for which most students are looking. As in many other things in the present age, necessary moral qualities are minimized, while undue weight is given to what are generally called the " ' intellectual qualities. " Let us illustrate. Force of charac- ter, will power, is a moral quality, yet it made Theodore Roosevelt over intel- lectually. Had it not been for that he would not have been the intellectual as well as the moral force that he is today. fi:si:;hf into the true relation of things which gives tlie power of discrimina- tion and lies at the foundation of sour.d judgment — something which everv law- yer must possess — is often called an inteikjtual qualit -. but in its nature it is 362 e,hr (i rrat iCaunu ' r essentailly moral. Insight tells us what is the truth, without reasoning on our part. Call it common sense in men, in matters of religion call it intuition, in ethical ques- tions call it conscience, but in all, whate er else may go with it, it is the faculty of insight. It is not primarily a mental faculty, though it undoubtedly makes use of the mind for its own purposes. Primarily, insight is a faculty of the soul, of the man himself. Like all faculties, its facility of operation is increased by exercise ; and in- creased facility of operation in one direction renders it easier to acquire facility in another. In short, to apply all this to the matter in hand, the continual exer- cise of the faculty of insight on the plane of the conscience, in the broad-minded, earnest desire to do right, tends to increase the facility of exercise on the planes of intuition, good judgment, discrimination, and common sense. In other words, my dear boy, sometimes discouraged that other law students acquire much more knowledge with far less efi ' ort than yourself, do not lower your ideals on that ac- count, or grow faint-hearted. Study continually that you may fill yonr mind with the materials upon which the law most directly works. You will do this if you have the moral qualities of will and dot-jrniination. If yon Jo this, and if, in ad- dition, you try to do right both in thought and in action, vou can not but help increase the faculty of insight in thought as well as in action, for thought is the action of the niinr!. In the course of time yon must by practice come to see the right relations of men towards each othei ' in this work-a-dav world, your flesire to do and think the right thing will lead yon to use your best discrimination and sound judgment in .giving advice and directing the affairs of your clients. Your fidelity, another moral quality, will make you careful and painstaking both as a sworn officer of the court, and as counsel for your client, and will keep you in the straight path of duty towards both — an essential quality of a good lawyer much appreciated both in the courts and by all desirsble clients. You may never learn to be eloquent, and juries may never hang breathlessly on your words. Your name may not often appear in the newspapeis, but you will get results, and that is what clients wish most of all. But what has this to do with becoming a great lawyer? It has very much to do with it. except for one thing — the great lawyer must have a great concep- tion of the law. He ought to be a painstaking student, and be possessed of the mental (|ualities to which I have alluded, but he must have the moral qualities about which I have written, and the chief of these is a great conception of the law and loyalty to that conception, combined with the spirit of helpfulness that he can not have unless he has the right kinl of a heart. Men have succeeded in a way in the eyes of the world, in ways which are not to be envied. Today it is becoming more and more diffictilt so to do. An old fashioned sense of righteousness, coupled with a broader humanity, and a stronger conception of universal brotherhood is alive in the world today. Now a lawver is in a certain sense the keeper of his client ' s conscience, and it is remarkable how easily most clients can be led in the right directions by that counsel. Xo lawyer today can stand long against this larger righteousness, and this broader conception of man ' s duty to his neighbor. " .As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. " If yoti would become a good lawyer, above all else keep in nur heart the spirit of loyalty, the spirit of helpfulness, and the desire to do right. If the flame of your heart feeds on these things, it will urge you into strong en- deavor, and no man knows how great may be the result. George D. .■ ' vvr.Rs. rljularslti;i ifratrntitira ;i63 .

Managing Editor Com- hunkers OiK Dear Friend Stuart — We are appealing to you because of your keen interest in our sorority in general and in one or two members in particular, ' e were much surprised at that article which appealed in the paper, giving what is supposed to be the present state of the beauty contest. Ueally after seeing that paper, we hate to even call it a beauty contest. If those re- turns are true, it is certainly convincing proof that your alleged friendship for the Chi Omega ' s is not true. In fact. Mr. F. M. Menefee told a friend of his in our crowd (we needn ' t mention any names) that ho was in the office and heard you urging an undecided perstm to vote for a mem- ber of the sorority Just across the street. If .lou desire to retain your present status with our sorority, it is up to you to see that things change. We leave It all with you. Yours fraternally in Chi OmeRa, Marv Stilahorn. Editor of Ihr Cornhusker. City: Dear Sir — In last night ' s Star we saw a no- tice of what purported to be a beauty contest curried on by the CokNIitrsKER. If any person ct-nnected with college affairs does not know that such statements as these contained therein arc false, be must be gifted with beauty blind- ness. Forgetting our soreness for tbe moment, let me ask you if you would not like a picture of eUher or all of the Misses Wallace, Rhoadcs, Steiner. Kotiinan. or of dear little Babe to keep in your office for the edification of any voters Willi are so unfortunate as not to know our bunch. If so. tb ' . ' sc will be cheerfully forwarded, express charges prepaid. By tbe way. can you not make us a visit some Sunday, or ask any Alpha Tail how crowded our bouse Is on all calling days. Very patlentiv yours, ALPHA OMICUON BI, Editor of Ihr Cornhuskrr, City: Dear ' :st Editor — You lan never know what a dear good fellow we think you are. Since you gave us a place in the contest we have spent most of our time in de ' idlng how to repay you. f bad made a box of fudge to send you. but Biotlier George Tunison liappened along just at that time and Sister Otis gave It to him. We were also going to send yoi: a picture of our fiat, but Brother Tate drojiped in at that mo- ment, and of lourse be had to have 11. Then we were mak ' ug you a pillow for your couch In the office, but when we had it almost done Sis- te ' - Strawberry turned it over to her Beta friend. Wasn ' t that too bad? K. K. G.

Miss Korsmeycr smiles at her purpose tell And locks the door. Students dash up the stairs a half second late And rattle the knob, but inexorable fate Has barred them without, no excuse can they state, She ' s locked the door.

Glorious Rosabella read the signs of care aright and peeped coquettishly out from her golden veil. Then she nnirmured: " You do look so ridiculous, dear one, with your lower lip sticking out like that. " Stalwart Alphonse turned angrily and his sword smote the air twice, thrice. " You do not care. " thundered he. Then, without v. second glance in the direction of poor Rosabella, he plunged down the path. .A moment later a shriek rang out over the ff)rest. It was the voice of glorious Rosa- bella. Stalwart Al])lionse paused in his mad rush and his heart bounded into his throat. Then suddenly he turned and madly sought his way back to Rosabella. He fonnd the wretched maid perched upon a high rock her silvery robes gathered about her. " Oh, . Iphonse, " she cried, with panting sobs, " it is a horrid green snake. " " Where, oh where, dear heart? " cried stalwart Alphonse. " There ! " she cried. A single blow of stalwart .Mplicnse ' s sword and the dreadf il reptile lay dead and bleed- ing.

There is here a striking similarity to the inspiration which prompted " The Star Spangled Banner : " The Co-eds recently have asked I " or equal rights with men. There is no honest reason why We should not grant it then. We ' ve heard their clamor loud and clear, We mean to grant it still And yield them equal rights with men. We ' ll let the Co-eds drill.

Neighbor Mills made a pleasant call at the Record office yesterday. He dropped in to pay his subscription and stopped for a little chat with the editor. He told us that his boys, who attend the University, are making Osceola proud of them. Milton will soon be presi- dent of his class. Although he was unwilling to take this high office, a petition was circu- lated by two of the professors, Prof. McWhinney and Dr. Cramb, asking that he do so. Milton has edited the University paper since entering school and is winning laurels as a journalist. Webster ' s line of study, it seems, is somewhat different. He is specializing in manual training and bench work, and has been taking a keen interest in the prohibition cam- paign in Lincoln. He has not only made addresses on temperance, but has joined a secret club called the T. N. E. club, which has taken a very positive stand on the question. It can be plainly seen that Osceola has every reason to be proud of the Mills boys. laobrrt EUinlt Robert I.
