Cotnbueker 1909 ■ ' ■ ' :A- h-; ' - University Song BY EX-CHANCELLOR ANDREWS (Tune: " Tlie Old Oaken Bucket. " ) Alma Mater, vc hail thee with loyal devotion. And bring to thy altar our offering of praise. Our hearts swell within us with joyful emotion As the name of " Nebraska " in chorus we raise. The happiest moments of youth ' s fleeting hours We ' ve passed ' neath the shade of these time-honored walls And sorrows as transient as April ' s brief showers Have clouded our lives in Nebraska ' s fair Iialls. And when we depart from thy friendly protection And boldly launch out upon life ' s stormy main, We ' 11 oft look behind us with grateful afifection And live our bright student days over again. When from youth we have wandered to manhood ' s high station. And hopeful young scions around us have grown, We ' 11 send tliem with love and with deep veneration As pilgrims to this, the best shrine we have known. And when life ' s golden Autumn with Winter is blending. And brows now so radiant are furrowed with care. When the blightings of age on our heads are descending. With no early friends all our sorrows to share. Ah, then as in memory backward we wander And roam the long vista of past years adown On tlie scenes of our student days often we ' 11 ponder, And smile to contemplate Nebraska ' s renown. s: ri oyttct 1501-050 Zl0kine5o -4j fc - Bs,, ra At this, the crowning point of another school year, it is befitting that we call together some of the numer- ous instances which have gone to make up the many joys and the few sorrows of the past years of our col- lege life. It is with no small degree of pride that we look back upon the work which we have about completed and the success we have attained. It is, therefore, with a feeling of pleasure that we present this partial record of our affiliation with our Alma Mater. If it may call up old memories, most dear to the minds of our alumni ; if it may kindle a deeper love and enthusiasm for " Old Nebraska " among the under- classmen ; if it may preserve the most sacred mem- ories of the classes, whose history is recorded upon its pages, it will have fulfilled its mission. ir. forgf Sufrt (Ennftra in a)i)irrciation of Ijia rnliraiiara to promote tl|P " Npbraaka Spirit " mt rpajifrtfuUg bcitcatr tljts iiolumr of tlfp (Eornl UHkpr Dr. George Evert Condra DOCTOR GEORGE EVERT CONDRA was born in Seymour, Iowa, February 2, 1S69. After graduation from tbe Seymour High School and the Western Norma! Scliool at Shenandoah, Iowa, he became a student successively m Iowa, Michigan. Nebraska, and Cor- nell Universities, specializing in biologj-, chemistry, and geology. He received the degrees of B.S., A.M., and Ph.D. from our University. Dr. Condra ' s experience as a teacher has been wide and varied, e.xtending from the country school, high school, and normal school to the University. As professor of geography and economic geology at Nebraska he has had charge of lecture, field, and laboratory work for seven years ; at Cornell University he was head of the department of geography in the summer session. Dr. Condra has been connected with the State Geological Survey for fif- teen years. During this time he has traveled between three hundred and four hundred thou- sand miles in Nebraska and surveyed the greater part of the State for the State Geological Survey, besides sixteen counties for the United States Geological Survey. Dr. Condra ' s thorough, painstaking thought and his ability as a writer are best shown in some of his publications, which are mostly along geographical and geological lines: (1) " New Species of Coal Measure Bryozoa of Nebraska. " (2) " Coal Measure Bryozoa in Nebraska. " ' (3) " Geography of Nebraska " — used as a text in most schools of the State. (4) " Preliminary Report on Agricultural Geology of Nebraska. " (5) " The Geology and Water Resources of Northeast Nebraska. " (6) " The Geology and Water Resources of the Republican Valley. " (7) " Sand and Gravel Resources of Nebraska. ' ' His active interest in general scientific lines is shown ni his official capacity as chair- man of the State Conservation Commission, president of the Nebraska .Academy of Science, membership in the Association of American Geographers, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. But the remarkable energy of this man does not confine itself to instruction in the University nor to extensive investigations and surveys in his subjects. He is a well-known and able speaker, and delivers from fifty to seventy-five lectures during tbe year to teachers ' associations, farmers ' associations, commercial clubs, and national conventions. Thus far we have noted the intellectual and scholarly qualities of the man to whom our book is dedicated, but " a inaii has as many sides as he has friends, " and to the student body of the University of Nebraska Dr. Condra has represented an object only to be under- stood and striven for by a Nebraska graduate — " Nebraska spirit. " With this in view he was the originator of class Olympics ; with this in view he is the stanch advocate of clean athletics ; and with this in view he stands before the stiidcnt body and urges: " You can ' t win out in your studies by dreaming; you can ' t beat your opponents in football by shouting, ' We ' re all right, Nebraska ' s the queen of the West, ' but you ' ve got to knuckle down and say, ' We ' re going to work for it and we ' re going to fight for it, ' and then with this determination and purpose you will make good in the University and elsewhere. A helpful interest in student problems and a relentless and purposeful activity are the keynotes of this man ' s character and success. In recognition of this, the students of Ne- braska respectfully dedicate to him tlie .Xnnals of mon. The " Nebraska Spirit " The " Nebraska Spirit " College spirit is just as essential for the advancement of a univer- sity as patriotism is for the advancement of a nation. College spirit differs widely in different localities according to the manhood and womanhood of the student body: it may be good or bad — one of fair play, or of narrowness. Therefore, it is necessary in the growth of our " Nebraska spirit, ' ' symbolized by the " Scarlet and Cream, " that we look to the highest ideals and establish standards that will reflect the glory of our great State. Let us develop such a spirit in the undergraduate and alumnus that the fellowship of college chums and classmates at Nebraska will be cherished in the after years, and create an undying love for Ne- braska and our Alma Mater. Let us further promote the spirit of cleanness and fair play whether upon the athletic field or in intellectual pursuits, that our opponents may be filled with admiration for our practicum, and respect for the institution which we represent. Both Yale and Harvard are known for the quality of their spirit, which is now firmly established and reflected in their college traditions. May the " Nebraska spirit " grow. u V 3 i; X 7 C : O U i i!

So on this anniversary of that noted year the class of 1909 is born into the world under circumstances which prophesy that they, in their turn, will become as potent factors to control and direct the destinies of the coming generations as those brought forth a hundred years ago. This is but a prophecy, but based upon the analogy of years during which the present Senior class has existed, this prediction is the only natural conclusion which could be drawn. In considering the future of the class of 1909, it is fitting that for a moment we should look back upon the record made by them during their college course. In the fall of 1905, like the gathering of a nebulus, came our classmates, fresh from the parental environment of the high schools, to investigate the charms of higher education, whence comes that polish by which they are now distinguished. Late in September of the same year, through the assistance of the Registrar and the Dean of Women, order having been produced out of this chaos, a mass meet- ing was held, to which only those holding green registration slips, as proof of Freshmanship, were allowed within the inner sanctuary. During this conference was fought the memorable " Battle of the Pipe-organ, " when the sturdy Fresh- man hosts drove back the mighty horde of invading Sophomores. C. E. Elliott, the " Famous Journalist, " was chosen by the victors to be their standard bearer and captain to lead them on to greater glories. Nothing further transpired to mar the peace and tranquillity during the first semester. The second semester was marked by events which placed the class in the prominence which they have since enjoyed. S. M. Rinaker. our representative at Oxford College, took up the reins of government upon the expiration of President Elliott ' s term, and showed his abil- ity as an executive by being twice elected to this important office. During the first term of President Rinaker ' s administration our class won laurels by securing the basketball championship and winning the interclass indoor track meet. During the second term of this administration our class was neither aggressive nor aggressed upon to any great extent. ' T is true, a new class of be- ings entered upon the campus and usurped our cast-off domiciles. The proper station of these recruits was demonstrated when their chieftain, Heskett, was rejuvenated in the College Fount of Youth, situated at the cross-roads of nth and J streets. An attempt at retaliation was made by these beings, and Verne Gittings, M. of C. of the Sophomore Hop, was abducted and carried to Roca. . rescue partv composed of members of the class of 1909 nobly followed, steamed to the enemy ' s hold, and returned INIr. Gittings in time for him to execute his official capacity at the hop. This rescue at the same time laid the foundation of the class debt. At a later date, the Freshman M. of C. was taken to his hop at a very late hour, and passed the evening handcufifed to a member of the class of 1909. 18 Class of 1909 In the third year of college. Robert I. Elliott guided the ship of state, now bearing the colors of upper classmen. Led by a captain of strong voice and im- pressive bearing, we defeated the Seniors of 1908 on the gridiron and celebrated the triumph in the event of the season, the Junior Prom. Ed. Guidinger took the ship the second semester. The Seniors of 1908 were given a royal reception in the classic hall, the Temple, while all civil matters were fought out over the acquisition of the coveted position, editor-in-chief of the class chronicles, the Corniusker of 1909. War was waged and settled by ihe election of W. A. Robertson to that position of trust and hard work. Earlv in the fall of 1908, the dawn of the Senior year, clouds dark and ominous gathered on the horizon. A girl was to run for class presidency. The valiant men of the class averted such a catastrophe, however, and elected Guy Matteson to save the da y. and the class. All class business was started promptly and continued vigorously by the new president. The first burst of enthusiasm resulted in the Senior Breakfast. Octo- ber 17, held at Lincoln Park. Almost before the sun had commenced his day ' s journey. Seniors were seen streaming through the woods fittingly accompanied by boxes and baskets. Soon streams of smoke were seeking the rarer atmosphere, while on the glowing coals rested white potatoes, weenies, and coffee. Original songs and yells by the class, in two opposing sections, followed. Races and an informal dance sent the members of the class of loog home in jubilant and noisy spirits. Ere long the Play committee was in action, while, as a result of the Cap and Gown researches. Senior mortar-boards graced the campus. On the gridiron, the team of 19a) upheld the pristine glory of the class, and. to the pride of all their classmates, won the valued ' 09 sweaters. The month of February. 19CX), heralded the second administration, our last, under Elmer W. Hills. Arrived at the point of clear, far-sighted vision and calm philosophv, we measured the distance behind us and found it long; we measured the distance ahead, and found it short and wonderfully rich in possibilities. First we must leave our name, immemorable in the annals of the University of Ne- braska. What did our college need that it lacked? Ah, a Senior pin, a uniform pin, one that all graduates should recognize and be proud of. Representatives from the four classes, 1912, 191 1, 1910, and 1909, met and after lengthy and painstaking deliberations, chose the emblem which shall henceforth and forever give a character and an individuality to the grad of Nebraska. Realizing the faithful work of the chainuan of the play Committee, Besse Holcombe, and the careful selection of the cast, we look forward with joy to its staging in June. On February 5. we were ready to iilay again. Casting aside the dignity of cap and gown, donning the garb of childhood days, and the masks of jesters, we wended our way to the Temple and played droj) the handkerchief, spinning the pan, and other staid games. The stately ' irginia reel, the gayer two-step and rhvthmic waltz ended an evening filled with the charm " . 11 hail to i()09 ! " Even so as we have prospered, and been happy in the past may we prosper and be wise in the future. ATay our deeds always l e to our credit and to that of our Alma Mater!

October 5, 1906. Robert Clark, Hitchcock, Nebraska: Dear Old Bob — At last I am fairly launched, a member of a full-fledged class, upon the rather boisterous sea of University life, and am coming to you to unload my first impressions. You have been through it all and can understand something of the trials of a Freshman. Registration week wore me out completely. The fellows were fine about showing me how to do it and helping me to get my bearings on the campus, but in the office I got it with all the other Freshmen. You know how it is. — crush, hurry, push, jam for the eight hours of the working day. After two days of it I needed the remainder of the week to recuperate. Having succeeded in satisfactorily explaining to the Rhetoric Department " who I am and why I came to the University of Nebraska. " and having satisfied several professors on various points of interest in my chequered career, I was at liberty to turn my attention to " divers and sundry " student activities. Following the lead of classes who have gone before, the class of 1910 met at Memorial Hall for permanent organization. The occasion was certainly most inspiring. While without the sacred portals a mob of curious and husky Sophs howled and shouted in impotent derision, we on the inside carried out our purpose strong in dignified calm. Upon A. J. Heskett was bestowed the honor of being the first president of the class of 1910. and amid loud cheering our organization was completed. But alas for our jubilant spirits! The foiled Sophs sought their revenge. They swooped down in numbers upon our unsuspecting and unprotected presitlent and a few of his friends. They were marched to the fountain at nth and [ and there, before a crowd of jeering Sophs, were ingloriouslv ducked. Now we have in turn sworn revenge and await the opportunity for evening up things. Rest assured 1 will keep you posted as to the result of our plots. Jack. December 20. 1906. Dear Bob — We have been having great sport since my last epistle Hitch- cock-ward, and I congratulate myself on having some one like you to enjoy it with me all over again. Since the Varsity football season closed, class doings have kept tlie air filled with excitement and are still claiming the most of our attention. Chief among these affairs has been the develo])ment of the 1909-10 feeling. Football offered us our first opportunity to humiliate the Sophs. In the class champioiishi]i series we beat them thoronghly and further added to our glory by tying with the Seniors for the championshii) of the school. That was a great game, and with any luck we would have won it. The Sophs planned to hold their annual Imp December 15. This was another opportunity, and we made the most of it. ( )n the morning before the hop we cap- tured the master of ceremonies. The l)oys had an auto waiting. We hustled him into it and were off to Roca before the Sopiis discovered their loss. Leaving the M. C. in the little burg guarded 1) two husky iM-eshmen. we returned to Ijiicoln to threw the Sdiihs off the trail. ' I ' hev were " (in. " however, and we oidv man- Class of 1910 21 aged to delay them here until evening. Then somehow they got information that made them sure of the place, and in two autos we raced to Roca. Unluckily we broke down. The Sophs of course then beat us to the house, overpowered our guard, and rescued their man. About six the next morning we were back in Lincoln. Suspicion had fallen on a certain house here and, undaunted by our failure of the night before, we surrounded it and waited hopefully. But we had been misinformed and discovered it only when it was too late to make any other plans. We lost out there, but we took it in true 191 o style and marched to Sam ' s cafe. There we held a rousing good banquet and swore vengeance once more. We still have time to pay the Sophs back and they had to work this time to beat us. I will be home in a few days and tell you more. Jack. February i, 1907. Dear Bob — Once more we have gotten the best of the Sophs. We had our big Freshmen Hop January 25 at the Lincoln, and it went off perfectly. The lit- tle party we had in Memorial Hall before Christmas was unmolested, but we were looking for trouble this time. The Sophs made gallant but ineffectual attempts to capture Lyle Davis, the chairman of the committee, and even more strenuous efforts to get hold of Harry Ingles, the M. C. With almost Soph-like wisdom we kept them both successfully hidden, and so our first big social stunt went off in regulation style with all officers present. Our presidential campaign passed off quietly this time, and L. J. Weaver was elected with very little opposition. Jack. May 5, 1907. Dear Old Pal — Strenuous college life with the spring weather on is mighty hard to keep up with, and it is a good thing that there is a considerable amount of fun mi.xed up with the work. Otherwise I could not stand it. Class affairs have been plenty this spring and we have much to be thankful for in that line. Once more we defeated them in athletics. Our basketball season was about the most satisfactory thing of the whole year. We have a splendid team and took everything in sight. They beat the Sophs easily and won the cham- pionship from the Seniors in the finals. The girls ' basketball season was not so successful. They lost to the Sopho- more girls by a single goal and so had no chance to fight the Seniors. The tour- nament was played as usual in the armory behind closed doors labeled " Ladies only. " As usual, the east door of the armory and the windows in all the nearby buildings were filled with the curious ones who were not " ladies. " May 4 we had our second hop. Whether the long inactivity of the Sophs had rendered us careless or not I do not know. At any rate we were only able to save Frank Wheelock, the chairman, from the hands of the Soph kidnapers. La wrence Holland, the M. C, was captured. All efforts to rescue him before the dance failed, but at about nine o ' clock he appeared at Fraternity Hall hand- cuffed to one of his captors. We are just about quits now, and so I suppose will end this year. Jack. October i, 1907. !My Dear Bob — Back at school again and everything is once more in running order. I thought last vear that I was fresher than most first-year men, but I know that I was not in the same class at all with some of these ' 11 Freshmen. They are green enough to suit St. Patrick himself. Being Sophomores it was up to us to get busy early in the year. Our own 22 Class of 1910 political fight was short and close. J. M. Alexander was elected by a small ma- jority over F. O. Wheelock. Having thus quickly disposed of our own politics, we turned our attention to the management of Freshman affairs. . s benign Juniors, our friends of " 09 found it impossible to keep out of Freshman-.Sopho- more scra])s. They proposed to take charge of the first Freshman meeting, to instruct the credulous youngsters in the ways of the University world, and to give them a paternal push in the right direction. Scenting in this arrangement an un- warranted interference with our natural rights, we got together in a plot to stop it at once. About si.xteen of us met at the high school the night before the Fresh election. We knew that there were four candidates in the race, and for a time we were stumped. Finally some one suggested that we get them all. ' e mapped out a brief campaign for the night ' s work and separated about nine o ' clock. There were four divisions, each after a certain man, and we had planned on meetings and reenforcements where we felt that it would be necessary. The group which was detailed to get Weaverling, whom we felt to be one of the im- portant candidates, had a hack to aid them. With some difficulty we persuaded Weaverling to go with us peaceably and escorted him across the viaduct. Under guard he was headed for Capital Beacli, and the hack returned to help the others. A second division arrived at Hascall ' s home about nine o ' clock. Mr. Hascall was not at home. When would he be in? Hard to tell. He was at a dance; 9:30. 10:00, 10:30, and Hascall did not show up. At last shortly after eleven o ' clock the half-dozen watchers were rewarded by seeing the candidate, whistling in fancied security, come toward his home. He was taken on his own doorstep, marched down South street, out across Salt Creek toward the old Western Nor- mal. The party spent half the night wandering around in the wilds of Salt Creek valley, and finally arrived at the rendezvous at 3:30 a.m. The Junior president had been captured, too, and the entire party, the Sophs shivering and the Freshies roasting, spent the night and the ne.xt day in hiding at Robber ' s Cave. At about four the next afternoon we started back to town. At the viaduct a band of Sophomores met us with the news that Weaverling had been elected. We released Hascall, and, painting Weaverling a bright green, paraded him down O street. He made a speech, and as we knew what he had been througli the night before we decided to forego the ducking which, in memory of our Freshie days, we felt that he should have. Point I for 1910! Jack. February i. 1908. Dear IjOB — We are certainly feeling fine as regards our athletic stunts. The success of the Varsity seems to have passed onto us. Once again we have squelched those gentle I ' eshmen, adding a football victory to their long list of grievances against us. Then we properly humiliated our old enemies, the Juniors, by defeating the Seniors in the fast finals. So we have ended ;i fine .season with the ehami)ionship and sweaters belonging to us. In their over-anxiety to even up, the Freshies did a rasli tiling. ( )ur class hop came off in January with Jesse Clark managing. Of course we expected trouble, but not so soon as it came. Fully a week before the ilance Dale McDon- ald, M. C, was kidnaped by a mob of Freshmen and driven to Beatrice in an auto. Not satisfied with their feat the foolish Freshies boasted, and their vanitv proved their undoing. The Chancellor took a hand in the affair and demande.l that McDonald be returned to .school. The Fresjiie president was excited and pro- posed to defy orders; but the class, with greater wisdom than their previous ac- tions would have led any one to exi)ect from them, dicidi l to ohev. antl .McDonald was returned. Point 2! fAcK. Class of 1910 23 May 15, 1908. Dear Old Bob — We have been more than busy and to some purpose, for we have won athletic honors and others as well. Harry Ingles defeated S. A. Ma- hood in the run for the presidency and politics generally has been rather exciting. We again won the championship in basketball — another score against the Juniors. The girls lost their tournament, hovve er, allowing the Seniors to take the honors there. A hop at Fraternity Hall May 8, with W. E. Byerts chairman and L. H. Harte as M. C, closed our social season. The Freshies did not succeed in making us any trouble and it proved a financial success as well. On Ivy Day, the first trial of a new system for the program was made, and 1910 shone brilliantly in the results. The interclass meet we lost to the Fresh- men, but our part of the evening program was voted by the judges " the best " thing offered. Jack. December I, 1908. Dear Old Bob — Varsity work and Varsity athletics have so completely taken up my time that I needed your questions to make me sit up and notice what the class was doing in that line. VVe had splendid representation in Varsity track work and football. After a hard fight our boys lost the class championship in football. Our Varsity men were of course not allowed to play, and this recollec- tion comforts us for our loss. Things have been going fairly well this year. The election of W. E. Byerts to the presidency was accomplished without much opposition. Jack. March 18, IQ09. Dear Bob — You should see us now ! Natty, blue bull-dog caps with gold class numerals appeared on the men early in February and created such a favor- able impression that hats for the girls are to follow soon. Paul Yates won the presidency from Josephine Huse by only one vote. It is the first time a co-ed has ever run for the office, and as you see she was strongly supported. The rest of the officers were, as usual, easily disposed of. The Junior Prom, February 5, was successful beyond all precedence. J. M. Ale.xander as chairman managed the finances with the most satisfactory results and the dance itself, with Arbor Barth M. of C, was a splendid affair. The success of our men in athletics win.s us the championshij:) for the third consecutive time. Just now our attention is on something rather new in University life. They have begTui a series of interclass debates ; and we stand well up in the chances for the championship. The success of our men in athletics, winning us the cham- pionship for the third consecutive time, makes us even more an.xious to make good in the new line. Our girls were once more defeated in the tournament by the very small mar- gin of I point. Hard luck seems to tag us there, and we wonder if a tournament open to men as well as co-eds would not prove to be the step necessary to " fly the hoodoo. " We have just elected Ralph ]Moseley as editor-in-chief of ne.xt ' ear ' s Coun- HUSKER. We are preparing to be Seniors, you see. Oddly enough, I don ' t be- lieve that I will be ready to leave the Varsity in one year, and I know that three years have been very short and full of new and pleasant experiences. Every week brings fresh interests into our lives. Every new friend adds to the ties that hold us to dear old Nebraska! In one vear we will be leaving, but in that year we have time to do something and learn to be something that will count for the glory of Nebraska and the class of 1910! Jack.

Tioa sii rer Class of 1911 25 Class of 1911 NEARLY two years has elapsed since the class of 191 1 entered the Univer- sity of Nebraska. Of the six hundred students who were enrolled for the Fresh- man year only about three hundred and twenty-five are still seen on the campus. In those two years many changes have taken place, as the second year class, the Sophomores, grasped at University customs and attempted to fall in line with the spirit of the school. Emerging from a hard-fought election at the beginning of the school year, at which J. E. Lawrence was elected president, the class began to marshal its strength in preparation for the " Olympics, " as the annual class fight between the two lower classes has been dubbed. Ushered in by cold weather, it seemed as if Dame Fortune had deserted the camp of the Sophomores, and with a tie score in the individual events it seemed as if the Freshmen were to defy all well-estab- lished rules of University life by defeating the upper classmen. The Sophs ral- lied in the grand finale, however, and in the " free-for-all " used the Freshmen as ploughs for the dust at Antelope park. That was the beginning of better days. Following in the footsteps of the victory was the Sophomore Hop under the man- agement of Walter Weiss, chairman, and Arnold Bald, master of ceremonies. Although the weather man tried to hand out a lemon, the attendance exceeded the expectations of the most sanguine, and the hop proved to be a great financial success, giving the Sophomores the distinction of holding the only dollar-and-a- quarter dance at the Lincoln which resulted successfully financially. A few weeks later the Sophomore Informal with Phil Fredericks as chairman proved equally as popular. " Coup d ' Etat " describes the action of the Freshmen Laws in the election the second semester. By a clever movement they elected Nye Morehouse of Fre- mont. Morehouse has proved an able executive. During the second semester the class has been well represented in other activities. The football team was strong, defeating the juniors 5 to o, but losing to the championship senior aggre- gation after a hard gridiron battle. Fourth place fell to the second year men in the indoor meet, but the leaders were only a few points ahead, and all four teams were very evenly matched. In debating the Sophs were defeated by the cham- pionship Freshman team by a two-to-one decision. Viewed from the Sophomore standpoint the past two years have been most successful.

Treasurer IT IS annually reported that the new Freshman class is the greenest of all green things that have as ' et appeared on the campus. Xotwitlistanding the fact that the class of nineteen-twelve was at first accused of being greener than the grass of spring, we have rapidly lost our verdant appearance and assimilated the customs and traditions of the University. Like one who looks from the sunlit hilltop down into the darksome valley we look back to that period of mute aston- ishment and trepidation which extended over the days of registration and the opening weeks of school. Now we are toiling to unravel the double knots here meted out to the Freshmen, and we have begun to realize that the task falling to our lot is the task of men. The Freshmen rather expected some attempt at interference upon the part of the Sophomores at the first class meeting, but being fearful of either our num- bers or the Chancellor ' s hand, they caused no disturbance. Three rival candi- dates for the presidential chair mounted the platform in Memorial Hall so as to give the class an opportunity of judging their respective abilities. Naturally the man who presented the best stage appearance won, and Gerspacher was elected though closely pressed by Rohan. During this administration a class hop was given at the Lincoln hotel. This was a success from a social point of view, but the finances fell short. This year marks the inauguration of organized class rivalry. The first time at Nebraska an official " class rush " between the Sophomores and Freshmen was held. This was lost by 19 12 although hotly contested. The opposing sides were distinguished by colors worn at the calf of the leg ; the Sophomores wore a bloody crimson, while the Freshmen wore the innocent white. The Freshmen won a majority of points in wrestling and boxing, and they also won the Marathon race over a course from Mr. Bryan ' s home at Fairview to the field at Antelope Park. The supremacy of brawn over brain was plainly demonstrated when we lost the tug of war. This victory of the Sophomores gave them the right to frame rules to govern the conduct of Freshmen while on the campus, and very soon these rules appeared posted in prominent places. These rules were never obeyed, and the placards quickly vanished, since some of us desired them for souvenirs. .A.t the second election of officers greater enthusiasm was shown. The cam- paign of the candidates was more spirited and the interest of the members of the class more general. A landslide elected Thomas. In both football and basketball we have shown very promising material, and can expect to take an important part in University athletics next year. In the interclass track meet we won the relay race, which is generally acknowledged to be the most important event. In debating we have already demonstrated our superiority over the Sopho- mores and are about to debate the Seniors for the championship of the LTniver- sity. We expect to enter this line of activity with the same energy we expect to show along athletic and other lines. As the year draws to a close it is plain that the class has become more unified, and is now increasing so rapidly in that respect that it promises soon to become a factor and a power in the LTniversity affairs. D. B. V. State Farm Class Officers LlEiiERS, T ' risickiil Isham. Vice-President Wli.cox, Secretary Ei.iiiiK, Treasurer Vanskivek, Sergeant-at-Arnis Kdhkktson, Class Editor Senior Class State Farm 29 Senior Class State Farm IN THE FALL of 1906 there assembled from the various parts of the United States a class which was destined to be one of the most prominent and enterpris- ing of any class which had ever been in the Nebraska School of Agriculture. The exceedingly congenial spirit and enthusiasm of this class was oftentimes the subject of comment. So it was from this state of affairs that a plan was fonnulated which was to bind them still closer together and also furnish an in- tellectual as well as social benefit. Mr. L. C. Robertson conceived the idea of a literary society, and thinking, with some people, means action. As a result the first literary society was organized and called " The Davisson Literary Society, " in honor of Professor Davisson. The class spirit grew, and in their Junior year a flurry of excitement was brought upon the sedate, peace-loving students by the arrival of April i. There is nothing in that simple date which sounds alarming, yet to have empty class rooms was the cause of much amazement and consterna- tion to the instructors. Panic seized the community and tongues were set wag- ging as to the whereabouts of the class of 1909. But they all came back the very next day, and if further proof of their return is necessary ask Rands, Anthony, Kindig, and some of the others who found the farm pump especially alluring. But as is often the case, there are always some who grieve at youth ' s caprices, and it proved true here. The " Duke " summoned the class and pointed out to them the folly of their fun, and told them that as he always had the welfare of school and class at heart, he hoped the practice of Sneak Day would be abolished. The class, repentant and contrite, tried to make up for past indiscretions by enter- taining in a royal manner the outgoing class. In athletics their prowess is well known, having carried away the class base- ball championship in both the Freshman and Junior years and a brilliant outlook for the present season. And now the last year has come, and this remarkable class continues to dis- tinguish itself. Perceiving that one literary organization was inadequate, a sec- ond one was formed, which is known as the Ophelian Literary Club. Then our distinguished classmates, Mr. Moseley and Mr. Carse, got busy. Knowing that soon the class would disperse and go back to the farm, it would behoove the amateur farmer to know the best metliods obtainable in the field of agriculture by which bigger potatoes and larger apples could be grown with less destroying insect pests and growing of lemons and the like, consequently the " Ne- braska Budders " came into existence, expecting to put into practice the theories learned at school. But all too soon the day comes when each student receives his degree and leaves the preparatory department to enter the School of Life where, from past history, we find it to be a constant struggle and finally the survival of the fittest. May each one in the class of 1909 find himself fully prepared to meet and overcome the difficulties which beset his way. May Providence pour out her rich- est blessing and prosperity on the best, the largest, the most active, wideawake class which has ever g-one out from this institution. 30 The Graduate School The Graduate School Samuel Averv, Ph.D. Acting Chancellor and President of Univer- sity Senate Lucius Adelno Sherman, Ph.D. Dean of the College J Members of the Faculty G.

Brenke, Ph.D., RLithematics THE COLLEGE OF LITERATURE. SCIENCE AXD ARTS was the first department to be established under the act of February 15, 1869. One build- ing was erected in 1870, and the college opened September 7, 1871. Actual work began with five professors and twenty students. The first year Allen Benton, A.M., LL.D., was chancellor and also professor of intellectual and moral sciences. Five more chairs were filled, those of Ameri- can language and literature, mathematics, rhetoric and English literature, chem- istry and natural science, Latin school, and agriculture. For many years the College of Literature, Science and Arts maintained three courses of study, classical, literary, and scientific, each leading to its particular degree. Later the scientific course was transferred to the Industrial College. The first twenty years, in 189 1, showed a great increase. Charles E. Bessey was Acting Chancellor at this time. The new departments were mental, moral and political philosophy, Greek language and literature, modern language and lit- erature, i nglo-Saxon, rhetoric and English composition, history, botany and hor- ticulture, geology, modern language and Sanskrit, analytical chemistry, physics, oratory, economics and political science, classical phiiologv. philosophy, agricul- tural chemistr ' , history of art, painting and drawing, forestry, biology, piano, organ, violin, voice, and harmony. This year, 1909. is the fortieth anniversar - of the University. Dr. Samuel A. Avery, owing to the resignation of Chancellor Andrews, was chosen Acting Chancellor January i. Not only in the attendance but also in number of faculty has there been a constant increase. New departments have been added as follows : Roman history, literature and language, Greek history and literature, American history, European history, German language and litera- ture, science of education, political economy and commerce, political science and sociology, jurisprudence, public law and diplomacy, practice, history and theory of teaching, physical education, educational psychology, logic and metaphysics, history and criticism of fine arts. There are ten buildings now on the campus, and the College of Literature, Science and .- rts occupies the greater part of six of them. These are hardly suf- ficient for the 850 students registered in this college. Since the University opened there have been six Chancellors and three Act- ing Chancellors, all of whom have been directly or indirectly affiliated with this college: Allen R. Benton, philosophy, 1871-76; Edmund B. Fairfield, philosophy and economics, 1876-81 ; Henry E. Hitchcock, mathematics, 1881-83: Irving _f. Manatt, Greek, 1884-89: Charles E. Bessey, ' ' botany, 1889-91: James H. Can- field, history, 1891-96: George E. McLean, literature, 1896-1901 ; Charles E. Bes- sev. botanv, 1901 : E. Benjamin Andrews, history, philosophy, and economics, 1901-09 : Samuel A. Avery, chemistry, January, 1909, were the different Chan- cellors of this institution. Actinff Chancellor.

Music College of Pedagogy ONE of the highest and most important aims of education is social better- ment. One means to this end is improved teaching. This demands the siii erior training of teachers. The pubhc school men of Nebraska recognized this need, and in response to their call for a professional school of collegiate rank for the technical training of teachers, the Teachers ' College was established in February, 1908. The concensus of opinion among our best educators in this country is that the minimum academic requirement for the high school teacher should be gradu- ation from a reputable college or university and, in addition to this, such pro- fessional training as would acquaint the candidate with the principles and history of education and the theory and practice of teaching. The Teachers ' College aims chiefly to prepare high school teachers and su- perintendents and candidates for professorship in normal schools and colleges. It offers facilities for the training of supervisors in such special lines as agricul- ture, domestic science, manual training, and the fine arts. For some vears, the University has maintained a department of education, which has done much toward raising the standard of the teachers profession in this state, and has been a stepping stone to the establishment of the College itself. This original department has been expanded into a college by the addition of nu- merous academic and professional courses, and by the enlargement of its faculty from a few members to thirty-three. The curriculum is strong and thorough. A teacher first needs a broad gen- eral education, a strong academic foundation. This is met in the first require- ment work in the College of Liberal Arts. The second need of the teacher is met in the second requirement — a special knowledge of the subject to be taught. The third requirement meets the third requisite, an acquaintance with the professional aspect of educational science. Doctor Charles Ford)-ce, who built the department of education in the Ne- braska Wesleyan University and who served for a period of ten years as dean of the College of Arts and Science in that institution, was made dean of the new Teachers ' College and also professor of educational theory and practice. Through his eft ' orts and tireless energy a model training school for the observation and practice of teaching has been established in connection with the professional work of the college. This experimental school is modeled after that of the Teachers ' College of Columbia University, the first of its kind in this country and also the leading one. This training school occupies quarters in the new Temple building, where there is equipped for its purposes a commodious assembly hall, seven large class rooms and laboratories. In this school are sixty students of high school grade under the charge of a skilful principal and several experienced high school teachers. The prospective teachers, after completing the academic and theoretical courses of instruction, are required to make a careful study of the methods of teaching in both this school and the Lincoln city schools. After having formu- lated methods of procedure, thev are required to organize and teach a series of lessons under the critical guidance of the professor of educational theory and practice. Arrangements are now completed for a number of the academic pro- fessors to give at least one course in the special methods of teaching their sub- ject, and to direct the practice work in the line of their department in the mode! school, so that this experimental scliool may incorporate the highest ideals of the department concerned in the training of the secondary teaching. In the year 1888-89, the enrolment of the Teachers ' College, which after- ward became a part of Columbia L niversity, was 211 students. Seven years later it numbered 362. In i9o8- : , the first year of the Teachers ' College in Nebraska, the enrolment numbers 390 students, and ho ' ds the enthusiastic support of Re- gents, Faculty, and public school men that prophesies that it will become a great factor in shaping the educational history of our state.

' pplied Mechanics UNDER the charter of the University as adopted in 1869 a " College of Practical Science, Civil Engineering, and Mechanics " and a " ' College of Agri- culture " were created. These were soon merged into the " Industrial College. " Not much more than a foundation was laid by the year 1884, when we find a total of thirteen students registered in this college. The ne.xt year, 1885, the requirements for admission were changed so as to place the college upon the standing it has since enjoyed. The first buildings erected for this department were a barn and boarding hall at the College Farm and old Nebraska Hall on the northeast corner of the cam- pus, which was then known as the Industrial College, being so called in the ap- propriation bill providing for its erection. By a rearrangement of the University work in i88g, the general scientific course and an electrical course, which has since become the electrical engineering department, were included in the Indus- trial College, and in those five years the number enrolled increased from thirteen to ninety. As the branches became larger and the required work became more and more extended, it was found necessary to provide adequate facilities for doing the work, and, during this period of development, the material part of the industrial department was increased by the additiori of other buildings. The machine shops were added to the group of buildings on the campus, followed soon by the erec- tion of two laboratories known as Bacteriological Laboratory and the Dairv Lab- oratory at the Farm, giving the agricultural department its first impetus, and in- cidentally starting one of the greatest agricultural schools west of the Missouri river. At the beginning of the year 1895, the College had expanded so as to include courses in agriculture, biology, chemistry, physics, the engineering groups, gen- eral science and mathematics, and in the next ten years the growth in number of students had increased until there were nearly a thousand enrolled. The increased number of students made it necessary to secure more room, and thus we find added to the list of buildings during these years the Mechanic Arts Hall on the campus, the E.xperiment Station Hall, the Dairy Barn, Machin- ery Hall, Agricultural Flail, and Home Economics Hall at the Farm, and last the beautiful new Engineering Hall on the campus, which is now uearing completion. The growth in the engineering and agricultural departments made it neces- sary to subdivide the Industrial College into the College of Engineering and the College of Agriculture, and thus the last legislature, by House Roll No. 76 ( com- monly known as the Kotouc bill) created the Colleges of Engineering and Agri- culture and sounded the death-knell to the Industrial College of the L niversity of Nebraska.

A majority of these men have j raduated from some one of the engineering courses, although p considerable number left befdre graduation, and a few who graduated in othe: " lines of work have become engineers. Engineering instruction, in the hirm of a course in civil engineering formu- lated by Col. Edgar S. Dudley, L " . .S. A., who was the first commandant of cadets, was first offered in 1878. John II. Silvernail. now deceased, graduated from this course in 1881, and took up the jiractice of civil engineering. E. J. Robinson. ' 84. is the earliest graduate engaged in the practice of engineering. . n electrical engineering degree was first given in 1892. tlie recipient being James A. Uarkley. now and for a number of years representing in an engineering and financial way important liritish interests in South . frica. . ustin J. Collett, ' 00. now electrical engineer of the L ' nion Pacific R. R. Cn.. was ilie first graduate in mechanical engineering. Kion J. . rnolfl is clearly the most distinguished engineer to whom tile Uni- versity can lay claim. Mr. .Arnold attended the University in the early ' os, be- ing a contemporary of Professor Caldwell. Since 1895 he has been |)resident and I)rincii)al stockholder of the organization now known as the .Arnold Company, Chicago, wiiicli makes a specialty of steam railway shop work, and takes contracts for the construction as well as the engineering. During the period i8i 5- 8 he developed tlie rotary converter, substation, high tension, direct current system of electric railways, whicli soon Iiecame standard. In i()oi and for five years fol- lowing he took the leading i)art in the electrification of the Xew ' ork t ' entral in and out of .Xew ' ork citv. This work involved a direct expenditure of about $15,000,000 and collaterally of something over $f)o,(:KX).ooo. Since ii o he has been chairman of the Hoard of .Sujiervising Engineers and chief engineer of the work to lie done in L ' hicago with reference fo the traction properties, involving the expeiidiltne of a])proNiniateiy $40,000,000. He was consulting engineer for the electrification of tlie .St. Clair tunnel, the heaviest electric railway service in the world, lie has been |)resident of the An ' erican Institute of l-llectrical luigi- neers, and also of the Western Socit ' lv of JMigineers. lie has medals for inven- tion or engineering achiivenKiUs from ilie I ' laiikiin liistitule. the Trans-Missis- Engineering 115 sippi Exposition, Pan-American Exposition, and Universal Exposition of St. Louis. It will be noted that (Uir men are represented in nearly all fields and all grades of engineering; that their work is to be found north, south, east, and west in our own country, as well as in. the other countries of this continent, on other conti- nents, and in the islands of the sea ; that an infinite variety of opportunity seems to have opened to the young engineer; that success may be won at home, even in the University city, or in the most distant lands. It must also be said that it is true, even to a much greater extent than will appear in what follows, that the men who have gone out from these departments are loyal to the University, those who have been the most successfvd and who have accomplished the greatest things be- ing among the most loyal. Leonard E. Hurtz graduated in electrical engineering in 1903, entered the employ of the Lincoln Gas Electric Light Company, later took charge of the electrical department of the city, and has now for two or three years been gen- eral manager of the Lincoln Telephone and Telegraph Company, being at this time one of the best paid and most influential young business men of the city. N. A. Kemmish, ' 04, is assistant superintendent of the Lincoln Traction Com- pany, having charge of the power plant, the shops, and all construction work. John Westover, ' 04, is proprietor of a thrifty and growing structural steel works in Lincoln. He employs University engineers, and is frequently patronized by University engineers who are in charge of steel construction. These are instances of success at home. Going further afield, we find Joseph A. Sargent, a member of the class of 1899, enlisted with the volunteer engineers in the Spanish-American War, was mustered out in Havana, and entered the em- ploy of the War Department there, soon becoming one of the half dozen men who were at the right hand of Col. Wm. Black, U. S. A., in the making over of that city. On the termination of the American occupation in Cuba he engaged in rail- way work in Mexico, .followed by a few years in the United States Reclamation Service and on the New York subways ; thence again to Cuba as chief engineer of the Van Horn railwa ' s, following which, at the call of Colonel Black, he en- tered the employ of the L nited .States Provisional Government as chief engineer of the Oriente Province. James W. McCroskey, 91, is chief engineer and manager of foreign con- struction for the J. G. White Company, Ltd., of London, England. His duties take him to all parts of the world where engineering work of magnitude is to be done. J. G. White, by the way, was instructor in physics in this University in 1885-86 and 1886-87. He is now the head of one of the greatest engineering and contracting organizations in the world. Another of our men who is now in his employ is James A. Green, with a salary materially in excess of the total annual appropriation for salaries, equipmeiit, and expenses for the department in which he was a student and assistant only five years ago. C. H. Purcell, ' 06, is in Peru, .S. . ., in a responsible position and at a salary which is high for so young a man. He also has employed some of the men of the later classes. J. C. Hitchman. ' 98, after experience on surveys, railways, and canals in this country, in Cuba, and in Mexico, reports his present position as follows : " In charge as manager Hacienda Cu atolopan. " His address is Cuatolopan, Ver, Mex- ico. Hi_tchnian and A. L. Hoagland, ' 00. are instances of men who have gradu- ated in one branch of engineering and have taken up and followed another. Hoag- land locate l and constructed the new and improved line of the Burlington from 116 Engineering Lincoln to Milfortl. the heaviest earthwork construction on the BurUngton west of the -Missouri river. H. B. Xoyes, electrical engineering. i8y8, has for several years held the po- sition of chief engineer of the Omaha Council Bluff ' s Railway. Some of the younger University engineers are making good progress in his employ also. Chas. E. Fritts, ' 96, is chief engineer of the .Metrnpolitan Street Railway Company, of Kansas City, Missouri. Cieorge H. Tinker, ' 90. is bridge engineer of the X. Y., C. St. L. R. R., with headfiuarters at Cleveland, r)hi(). His continuing interest in the I ' niversity is shown by llie fact that he is at present giving general su])ervision to the thesis work of two members of the class of IS)09. who are working out a subject in which he is interested as relating to his work. Norton Ware, ' 04. is bridge engineer of the Western Pacific Ry. and has en- tire charge of the design and construction of the bridges for this new line of rail- way, which extends from San Francisco to Salt Lake City. Bruce C. Yates, ' 02, is assistant to the chief engineer of the Great Homestake Alining Company, of Lead, South Dakota. C. C. Griggs, " 97, now at Eureka, Utah, has made a notable success as a min- ing superintendent, having put a number of n.on-paying propositions on a strong dividend basis. Frank A. Manlev has s])cnt in the employ of the Union I ' acific Coal Com- pany practically all of the twenty years since his graduation, reaching in 1891 the position of chief engineer. He is now general superintendent of the Superior Coal Company and chief engineer and superintendent of construction of the Union Pacific Coal Company, his address being Rock Springs, Wyoming. Hugh Wilson, 97, went into the operating side of railway work, and became a division superintendent at the age of twcntv-eight years. He is now in charge of 382 miles of the D. R. G. R. R., with headfjuarters at Salida, Colorado. The military service of Charles W. " eeks, ' 98. landed him as an officer in the United States . rmy, and he has been since 11J05 ccinimand.uu of cadets at the State University of Jowa. Robert H. White, ' 05, is ehiei ' electrician and assistant maintenance super- visor of the Schenectady works of the . merican Locomotive Company, where 6,000 men are employed. .Arthur B. Smith, ' 01, is assistant i)rofessor of telephone engineering at Pur due University. .• dolph . ' hane, ' 01. is associate professor of electrical engineering at Iowa State College. Walter E. Rowe, ' 96, is dean and ]irofessor of civil engineering in the State University of Kentucky. Herbert S. I ' vans, ' i)H. is professor if electrical engineering in ihe University ' of Colorado. J. B. Davidstjn, ' 04, is professor of agricultural engineering in Iowa State College, and occupies several cx-officio ])ositions in the college and in the state. L. W. Chase, of the same class, holds a similar |)osition here. These two men, gra luating in mechanical engineermg, took up this new line of work, and have thus early become the undis|)uted leaders of it. The ' are the joint autliors of a voluminous text on " barm Machint ' ry and I ' arm Motors. " ( iraduates of the University of .Nebraska are engineering |)rofessors and in- structors also in the University of I ' enns) Ivaiiia, l " oliiia lo t ' ollege. University of Washintrton. and the Universitv of Id.aho. Engineering 117 Karl C. Randall, ' 97, after some time spent in Central America in the employ of a company operating- power plants in that region, returned to this country, and now occupies the responsible position of engineer and chief of the transformer department of the Westinghouse Electrical and Manufacturing Company. All transmission and transformer work done by this company comes under his charge. G. W. Elmen, ' 02 and ' 04, is development engineer m the physical lal oratory of the Western Electric Company in New York. Herbert E. Reagan. )j, after six years spent in the sales department of the Western Electric Compan -, became a railroad contractor, being now a member of the firm of Yale Reagan, and also president of the United States Equipment Company, of Chicago, which owns and leases more than $1,000,000 worth of steam shovels, locomotives, cars, etc. Dan (jutleben, ' 00, who in his day here was distinctly the leader of the engi- neering students, is now a building contractor in San Francisco. A. A. Miller, 98, has been since 1902 in Seattle, where for several years he has handled all the large negotiations of the Westinghouse Electric and Manu- facturing Company in the Seattle territory. Lerov P. Sawyer, ' 99, is secretary and treasurer of the Buckeye Electric Company of Cleveland, Ohio, and as such is in charge of an extensive business in electric lamps, having branch offices in several of the larger cities of the country. L. J. Belnap, ' 98, is Montreal manager of the Allis-Chalmers-Bullock Com- pany. Ernest H. Haughton, ' 95, known in his student days as " Breezy " Haughton, is general manager of the Bryan-Marsh Company, of Chicago, and employs U. of N. men in his business of making and selling incandescent lamps. Em G. Eagleson, " 89, has been surveyor general of Idaho, and is a substan- tial business man of varied interests in Boise. T. C. Stevens, ' 05, has become one of the most expert hydrographic engineers in the country. He has been since graduation in the employ of the United States Geological Survey, and is now district engineer for the Columbia River district. W. H. Sawyer, 94, having had extensive electrical engineering and sales ex- perience at home and abroad, is now engineer in charge of the New York office of Ford, Bacon Davis. Ralph E. Turner, ' 06, is associate editor of the Practical Engineer, a monthly magazine for stationary engineers and power plant superintendents. Bruce W. Benedict, ' 01, after several years of service in the motive power department of the Burlington R. R., became editor of the Railway Master Me- chanic. Chicago. He is now ' supervisor of schedules for the Santa Fe system. That the University engineers have in more ways than one been loy al to the institution is shown by numerous entries in the Alumni Directory such as the fol- lowing: Mary Home Sargent, ' 96; Jessie Stanton Crook. ' 99; Georgina Case Sawyer, ' 97; Edith Robbins Day, ' 07: Josephine Tremaine McCroskey, ' 92; Min- nie Guile Brackett, ' 03. The accident insurance companies will not write as a preferred risk a man who is actively engaged in the field work of engineering. That there is a basis for this is indicated by the fact that a seemingly undue proportion of our men have met untimely deaths through accident and exposure. Instances which come to mind at once of men who have been stricken down on the work, some of them in distant and benighted lands, are: A. H. . ndrews. Elver Shinbur, Leroy Thomas Edmund Turner, Victor Yont, Frank Rush, and Raymond Hill. 6. V. P. Stout, Engineering 119 Class of 1909 I. — Arthur Leo Anderson. Seward High School.

Bacteriology and Pathol,.g - The Ideals and Achievements of the College of Medicine WHEN the College of Aledicine was organized in iyo2 it incorporated into the University the Omaha Medical College, which was at once the oldest institu- tion for professional training in this region and the one which had consistently maintained the highest standards. The faculty of the old college was attracted to the new undertaking because of the ideals of the Chancellor and the Hoard of Regents for the development of the institution. The standards of admission were raised at once, and have been steadily in- creased since then, imtil they now include two years of college training above the full high school course. This standard takes effect next year, and with its intro- duction the University has reached that point in strengthening its preparation for medical study towards which it has been aiming since the start. Owing to the existence on the University campus of scientific laboratories already favorably known at home and abroad for the scholarship and research work of both students and teachers, the scientific work of the Medical College was at once established upon a very high plane. By virtue of the strong faculty, the large hospital facilities available, and the introduction of sectional clinics and bedside teaching into the clinical years which are given in Omaha, the results of these years have exceeded even the most sanguine hopes. By virtue of high standards, the College has appealed to the best class of men ; those who wished a short, low-grade course have gone tii other institutions ; and the effect of this selection, combined with the unusual opportunities offered, are to be seen in the results obtained. Thus far three classes, 1906, 1907, and 1908, have completed the course under University auspices. Xot a single student has yet failed in an ' state board examination. The College has been rigidly inspected many tiiues during recent vears by various agencies. It has never failed to be rated in the highest class by all in- spectors. It stands in preferred relations with every state board. Even abroad its work has evoked favorable comment, and just this year the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in England, which is the English examination board, has voted, after careful consideration and inspection, to grant our graduates the privilege of entering English licensing examinations on presentation of creden- tials only. This privilege is granted to very few medical schools on the American continent. Graduates of the College have gone for graduate work in medicine to the great institutions of the East and of the Old World. They have been able to hold their own, and have returned enthusiastic advocates of the ideals which the College is following. These results have not been achieved without labor on the part of both Fac- ulty and students. In their achievement there has been the heartiest cooperation from both sides. The University can not boast of a splendid campus or of magnificent build- ings, but in view of the achievements of its graduates it may with pardonable pride point to those who carr - its medical degree, exclaiming like the Roman matron : " Hie mea ornamenta sunt ' " H.

In the Leipzig and Berhn papyri is recorded the fact that plants were collected for re- medial purposes at a very early period by the Egyptian priestly class who were also the physicians of that time. The earliest Greek physicians, the Asclepiadae, collected their own herbs. Early in the Christian era the collection of medicinal plants became an important industry, and a class of collectors, known as " root cutters, " arose that made a business of the collection and sale of plants to physi- cians. The Pompeiian excavations give evidence that drug shops existed in Ro- man times. However, specialization proceeded slowly, and it was not until the Middle Ages that pharmacy became an independent art and received a distinct recognition from Emperor Frederick II, who was patron of the University of Salerno in the thirteenth century. By the ancients pharmacy was held in high esteem. As an art and science it was not considered inferior to medicine. In modern times, however, pharmacy has fallen into disrepute. This is due largely to the fact that commercialism has invaded pharmacy, so that pharmacy as a business dominates pharmacy as a pro- fession. The simplest formulae are given fanciful names, patented, advertised, and sold as panaceas. Specialization in this direction has gone so far that any kind of soil may be impregnated with a sweet smelling volatile oil and sold as a most potent agent for the cure of disease. Add to this the fact that a large per cent of the medical profession has fallen into the habit of prescribing proprietary medicines, and we have the chief factors which have compelled the pharmacists of our time to become mere vendors of patent medicines, and in many cases have led them to the illegitimate handling of narcotic drugs. But conditions are changing. Medical men and pharmacists alike are united in an effort to rid the professions and the public of the quackery, graft, and de- ception which menace public welfare and public health. As a result of this agi- tation these conditions have been brought to the attention of the people. Legis- lation followed which in 1906 culminated in the passage of the national pure food and drugs act. Realizing the shortcomings of pharmaceutical education in our western country and the necessity of giving thorough pharmaceutical training in our own state, in order to prepare men to meet the higher professional and governmental standards which are being required. Chancellor E. Benjamin Andrews early in 1907 appointed a committee, consisting of Professors Avery, Bessey, Ward, and Lyman, to investigate the advisability of establishing a School of Pharmacy in the LTniversity. This committee reported favorably at the February, 1908, meeting of the Board of Regents, and the School was established at a special meeting of the Board, April 23, igo8. Dr. Rufus . . Lyman, of the College of Medicine, was made director, and Francis J. Perusse. of the L niversity of Kansas, was chosen as instructor in pharmacy. The School was organized and work began in September, 1908. Such is the history of the newest school in the University. School of Pharmacy loi Class of 1910 I. — Ethel May Cole.

" Dental College 155 History of the Lincoln Dental College, Associated with the University IN THE Fx LL OF 1892 Drs. S. H. King and Clyde Davis consultcfl the University authorities concerning establishing a college of dentistry, and it was finally concluded to include in the miscellaneous fund of the University budget to the state legislature a sum sufficient to purchase the necessary equipment. The legislature saw fit to cut down the amount in the appropriation, and the above- named gentlemen were informed by Chancellor Canfield that the Regents had de- cided that they were too sorely pressed for funds to take up the new work. After this reverse matters rested, till finally it was decided that the financial hindrance could be overcome by financing the school from without, and then as- sociating the institution with the University in an educational way. To that end a small stock company was organized in June, 1899, and the necessary money raised for equipment. To legalize the granting of diplomas and to economize in the teaching of sub- jects akin to, or a part of, a medical course, the college allied itself with the med- ical department of Cotner University, and the members of the Faculty who were interested in those early days recall with pleasure the many helps extended to them and the school by that institution while striving for a creditable existence. The first session was opened October 2, 1899, with but eight matriculants in the building at 127 South 14th Street, commonly known as the former Hotel Ideal. Two years later the increased attendance demanded more commodious quar- ters, which were secured in the F. and M. building at 15th and O Streets, where the infirmary and dental technic laboratories are still located. It was early realized that if success was to be obtained, high standards as to preliminary educational qualifications and course of study presented must not only be maintained but must be a recognized fact. Therefore the requirements of the dental departments of the leading univer- sities were adopted and assiduously adhered to. The school having thus shown its colors, the Board of Regents of the State University, on its regular meeting on April 24, 1903, saw fit to associate the school with the University, thus allowing the Dental College to maintain its separate financial existence, yet controlling its educational career, placing its course of study, subject to revision and guidance on the part of the University, that the high standards of the University would at all times be maintained and assured. It was also provided that the general science teaching should be done at the University, and at the present time the major portion of the class work is done at the University campus. The infirmary and the dental technic laboratories are separatclv maintained at isth and O Streets, close to th business center of the city, which facilitates securing an abundance of clinical work for advanced students. Application for membership in the National Association of Dental Faculties was made the year of association with the University, and full membership was attained the following year ( 1904). This, together with the fact of full recogni- tion by the National Association of Dental Examiners, makes the college one of universal credits and recognition, one or two years here being given full credit in any University, and its di plomas gi ■en the recognition accorded to any dental school in America. The members of the Faculty point with pride to the fact that everv graduate to date has been able to pass the various state board examinations, which they attribute largely to the University influences within which thev have beeii educated.

" GOUlyBGB OF - UAW FIAT JUSTITIA COLLEGE " LAW WHAT is now known as the University of Nebraska Collei;e of Law had its beginning in the year i88y, when an organization known as the Central Law Col- lege was started in the Burr block under the management of W. Henry Smith. The faculty was composed of leading lawyers of the state, among whom was Professor H. H. Wilson. The exact ntmiber of students is not accurately known, but is estimated at about fifty in all. The Central Law College had existed but two years when the Lancaster County Bar . ssociation urged the Board of Regents to provide for a law college, and accordingly in 1891 they incorporated the Central Law College into the Uni- versity, with Mr. Smith as Dean, which position he held until 1893. During this period the classes were started in Nebraska Hall, but inadequacy of space com- pelled a removal to the Burr block. With the resignation of Dean .Smith, Judge AI. B. Reese, at ])resent Chief Justice of the Nebraska Supreme Court, was made Dean and the text-book and case system was instituted in addition to the lecture courses. Among the Faculty at this time is noted Judge Frank Irvine, the present Dean of the Cornell Law School. During these years the number of students enrolled increased rapidly, until in 1902 we find 164 registered in the College. The next year was one of important changes — the course of instruction was extended from a two-year course to three years, and Dr. Roscoe I ' oxuid was elected Dean. The extension of the course of study did not retard its growth even temporarily. In the summer of 1907 another change took place. Dean Pound resigned and Professor George P. Costigan, Jr., was elected as Dean to carry on the work of advancement. Our College now has 185 students and is rated as one of the best in the West, for our standards have been kept high. Our growth has not been confined alone to numbers of students, but our library, which had its begin- ning fifteen years ago, now has between five and si.x thousand volumes of reports and text-books. The State Library, comprising 60,000 volumes and embracing every law book of importance, is within reach of the students. Nebraska students also have a splendid opportunity to study court procedure, since there is located in Lincoln the justice, county, district, the state supreme, and the United .States district courts. But our pride in the .Nebraska College of Law is not limited to tlie growth in numbers of students alone, but extends also to the results those students have accomplished. Nebraska College of Law graduates are located in every state and territory in the Union. In our own state the " Nebraska lawyer " is becoming more and more important. This fact is shown by the list of county attorneys, among whom are eight who have been sent out from the College in the past two vears. The First Congressional district of .Nebraska is represented in the Congress of the United States by John A. Maguire, a graduate of the College. United States .Senator E. J. Burkett is a Nebraska law man. Chas. E. Magoon, who has held the position as Governor both in Panama and Cuba, is a Nebraskan, and Judge Charles S. Lobingier, the present Chief Justice of the Philippine Islands, graduated from the Law College. Thus we close this brief sketch, feeling that the Universit - can well he proud of the record made by the College of Law. and look forward to greater advance- ment in the ftiture.

" r scHoo: OFT USIC Affiliated with the University of Nebraska THE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF AfUSIC is just closin- its fifteenth year, having been established in 1894. In this short period it has demonstrated the power of music in no uncertain sound. Its mission is the education of teach- ers, and it sent forth into every town and hamlet in the state those who are cre- ating a sentiment for that kind of art which elevates and enriches the home life, which enters into every phase of life, an art which never debases and which inai es all life more tolerable. From the smallest beginning it has steadily expanded, unaided by iniblic or philanthropic purse, and depending on its product and the kindly expression of its friends for its support, until the present time, when it takes its place as the largest, the strongest, and most efticieiit institution of its kind associated with western universities. With a faculty of twenty-five men and women and an en- rolment of six hundred students, representing seventeen states, it offers instruc- tion in all branches of theoretical and applied music, instruction which is in har- mony with the teaching of the most noted masters abroad.

In March, 1894, the Regents an- nounced that tlie - proposed to open in Se|)- leniber. 1895, i Sch(X)l of Agriculture and the Mechanic Arts. The announcement was not (|uite in accordance with the facts as they actu- ally occurred, for the School o])ened in De- cember (jf 1895. In the organization act of the L ' niversity in iSCxj, provision was made for a UoUege of Agriculture antl a College of I ' raclicil Science. Mechanics, and Civil Engi- neeiing. In icSjj the legislature changed the title to i ' lie Industrial C " ollege. embracing agriculture, practical science, civil engineering, and the mechanic arl. . I ' rcvious to the announcement referred to alx)ve, several attempts were made to satisfy the demands of the people for instruction in agri- culture. These, however, amoimted only to the giving of a few short courses in which there was no eiuhusiasm manifested on the jiart of either stmlents or instructors. When the time came to open school, the Regents found theiuselves embar- rassed by the entire absence of :w building ' in which the instruction of agricul- ture could be ort ' ered, so thev were ol)lig.(l to begin the work of the school on the University campus. The .session l penell in necembrr. i8c 5, and only fifteen stu- dents availed themselves of the o|)pnrinnit fi r in trnction in agricidture. In iRf ) the Regents succeeded in securing funds for the erection of a small frame building on tlu ' University Farm. This building constituted half of the present dairy building. There was a (hnr l;d)oratory below and a lecture rooiu alxive. Besides these extensive facilities for instruction there was a chemical laboratory, in a small cement house now occupied by Mr. Frank . " chmitt who i ' in charge of ihc b.irns. ;md .1 lecliu-e room in llie n|)per h;df-story. School of Agriculture 1 5 In tlu- summer of 1897 the cast half of the present dairy builcHng was erected and the whole structure veneered with brick. The writer very well recalls with what feeling-s of exultation the Faculty prepared to open school in December. At the fall election of iiSi;7 Hon. E. vonl ' orell, now of Scotts lUuff county, and Hon. George F. Kenower, of Wisner, were elected to membershii) on the J!oard of Regents. Both of these men were enthusiastic for agricultural education, and Mr. vonForell especially so. Besides, the young men of the school had begun to feel that agricultural education was not a " fraud, a delusion, and a snare. " but a thing worthy of the pursuit of any one seeking learning of a sort to make him successful in life. Just at the close of school ' n March, i8ij8, the students were entertained at the residence of the then Chancellor of the University, Dr. George E. MacLean. At the close of the delightful evening given the students by the Chancellor, it was proposed by him that an association of agricultural students be organized for the purpose of continuing the work begun in the school. The suggestion was re- ceived with favor, and the next day a meeting of the students was held at the fann. The question was brought up as to whether such an association should be organized. It was unanimously favorefl by the students, and an invitation was sent to Chancellor JMacLean and to Dr. Bessey to come to the farm for the pur- pose of organizing the association. It was certainly the most commendable thing in both the Chancellor and Dr. Bessey to be willing to come to take their place as sponsors for a movement looking toward the advancement of the cause of agri- cultural education when there was so little to start with at that time. For several years there was talk of providing facilities for the instruction of girls from the farm as well as boys. Such facilities were, however, not provided tmtil a year ago, when a course in home economics was instituted, and students were invited to come. Though the building was not vet completed, very success- ful work was done by the home economics department, with twenty-five girls who registered. No more enthusiastic students and no more faithful in the matter of study could have been found than the young women who applied for registration last year. This year the completion of the building, together with the addition to the corps of instrtictors, has made possible the strengthening of the work, and there are fortv-seven voung women availing themselves of the advantages offered. Last spring the Board of Regents established the Teachers ' College, and the principal was requested to take up the question as to whether the School of . gri- culture could, in any way, be made to affiliate with the work of the College. .A plan was agreed upon bv which teachers who possess a second grade certificate can be admitted to the School of Agriculture and do one year ' s work in agricul- ture and subjects related thereto, thus fitting them to carry on instruction in rural schools along lines which have a tendency to direct the minds of pupils of such schools to the advantages of farm life, and at the same time to give to these pu jils a trend of mental and physical activity that can but result in the improvLMuent of the farm conditions in the matter of better buildings and more tasteful arrange- ments of grounds, as well as their adornment. .Altogether, it ma - he said that the School of Agriculture is now in the posi- tion to oflfer not onlv that instruction which will directly affect crop production, and production along otlier lines of agriculture, but which will also have an im- portant influence upon the educational ])olicy of the state. It will be seen that the School of .Agriculture is affiliated with two colleges in the University, the reg- ular work of the School belonging to the Industrial College, while the work of the summer session and the work offered to persons who possess second grade certificates to teach belong to the Teachers ' Collecrc.

Clapp Coach Cole 203 William C. Cole WILLIA.M C. COLE, known as " King Cole, " who has just closed his second season as coach of the Cornhuskers, has a record as a coach and player of which any athlete might well be proud. His early training in athletics began in 1899 at Marietta Col- lege, where he played on the baseball and football teams until 1902, when he entered the University of Michigan. At Michigan " King Cole " showed that he had the nght material, filling the position of tackle on the famous Yost machine. The next year, having played his four years of college football, he coached the Marietta College team for a year, and in 1904 returned to Michigan as assistant to Coach Yost. During the seasons of 1905 and iyo6 he coached the football teams at the University of Virginia, where he demonstrated his ability as a coach by bringing the unknown ' irginia team to the standard of the eastern teams. The coming of Cole I0 Nebraska raised the hopes of Corn- husker supporters, who had become disheartened by the records of the team in the years just preceding, and the successes of the Ne- braska teams have proved that their confidence was well placed. Cole will coach the Cornhusker team during the next season, and it is safe to predict another successful year of football at Nebraska. 204 Captain James Harvey Captain James Harvey ( )R " CAl ' TAl.V JIM, " whose career in college foot- l all closed witii the Carlisle Indian game, represents the type of football man which raises the standard and the popularity of the game, and at the same time coni- inanfls the im failing and enthusiastic support of the student Ix)dy for himself and for the team. " Captain Jim " came from the Wilbur High School to the State University in the fall of 1904. During the football season of 1906 he played guard. His work this season, with Captain Glenn Mason leading the team, scciinil fur him recognition from football en- thusiasts and a firni and permanent place on the team. The football season of 1907 o]x;ned with bright lirospects for Nebraska. King Cole was the chosen coach. A heavy and strong team developed naturally when a man like Harvey held right end. . t this time ihc (jualities were evinced for which afterwards he liccame especially known : great strength combined w ith cool, unerring judgment and a thorough knowl- edge of the game. Recognition (if his work and ability came in the election to the much-coveted and time-honored posi- tion. Captain of the Varsity Football Team. The sea- son opened with the splendid game and victory over Doanc. l ' rol)al)l the largest attended and most sjiec- tacular game of the season of 1908 was that with tiie . ' Vmes Agricultural College, on Omaha grounds. ( irandstands were i)acked. side lines were crowded, the college bands fairly burst with music and uitlnisiasm, and — Nebraska won by a score of j to 17. In all these games, these tests of strength, of courage, and of ability, the captain of the team was recognized as their standi, reliable leader, and as such lii-M the esteiui of his team, his classmates. ;ind his college. 2; .5 CO . , - Jiti s C , i .

I JTt c n s c rt o 1 0x B -S ► lq-= FOOT BALL ON A LATE October morning of the season of 1904 the railroad station was thronged with students of the University of Nebraska. That sober autumnal morning was enlivened by waiving streamers and pennants of scarlet and cream, rousing Cornhusker yells and songs to old Nebraska and her team. For a full hour before the arrival of the train that was bringing back our defeated football team from Minnesota, that great crowd of rooters evinced a genuine spirit of true sportsmanship. Rousing speeches were made that contained some singu- larly striking truths concerning college sports. Doctor Roscoe Pound, that most amiable dean of those days, displaying as he always did a fine patriotism for his own University, impressed his hearers with the necessity of standing by the team at all times. Our own Dr. Condra spoke with splendid spirit. He reminded the men and women of Nebraska that the squad that was coming home that morning were " our boys, " that they had been fighting " our battles, " and that we should be with them in their defeats as well as in their victories. When at last the train pulled in, the football team was borne high on the shoulders of stalwart and big-hearted men. A great bandwagon, decorated in our magnificent colors, was drawn through the streets by a thousand cheering students. Flowers were showered upon the men of the gridiron by loyal co-eds. The songs and cheers there at the homecoming of a defeated team touched a responsive chord in the hearts of all true Cornhuskers. This was the best lesson in college spirit ever taught at Nebraska. The team had lost its biggest game, yet no squad had ever been received with such pomp and display. The spirit of good fellowship prevailed there, and it seemed at last that the people were beginning to understand the real business of football in a university. The passion for winning games had been cooled. The notion of zciiiiii ' iie . zviiining at any cost, was somehow superseded by a sense of love and respect for that squad of men who had journeyed so far to fight a battle which was not. in- deed, the squad ' s battle, but which was in every sense the affair of the whole school. We who were there that morning seemed to appreciate the feelings of the men who had endured the exacting discipline of a season ' s training. We saw in that team the men who had felt the strain and anguish that attends the game ; men who had borne the scars. We well knew that these men had played their hearts out on a foreign field for the fellows who had remained at home and for the love of their college. The unselfishness of the whole business seemed to touch us, and now, whether they had won or lost, we were rightly receiving them as heroes. We cheered and yelled ourselves hoarse over a beaten team and. what was best of all, we were beginning to understand the spirit that prompted us to do it. Football 213 Is n ' t the mere winning of games, then, after all, of very small consequence to the football man or to the university which he represents ? In a dozen years, when we look back upon these days, we shall scarcely be able to remember whether we won or lost in our games against Ames, Kansas, or Minnesota. No, it is not the winning; it is the playing that counts. The playing of a clean game of football, for all it is zuorth by a young man idio is worth something, is as much and as little as football amounts to. The thousands of rooters who are obliged to remain on the side lines becaitse they are worth just a little less than the team as far as football is concerned are given the finest examples of self-sacrifice and bet- ter lessons in " facing the music, " " sticking it out to the bitter end, " and " playing the game, " than they could ever get in a class room. There is something beauti- ful about these lessons of the gridiron. They are indispensable to the young man or woman who is obliged to catch step with the strenuous life, and the unique and forceful method by which the ' are taught causes them to be woven into the fabric of our characters. There is a better lesson, however, to be learned from football. The hardest and best lesson to be learned in the game is not learning to win, but it is learning to lose. The man who has always won at football and never lost has missed one of the best lessons that the game teaches. To learn that lesson and learn it well he must have trained hard a whole season for a big game, and played it over many times in his mind before the day arrived. Then when that day of days, which seemed to hold the most important event in his whole life, finally comes, and he played with his whole heart to win, never knowing he was licked till the final whistle blew, and then, cut and bleeding and tired out, he drags himself back to his quarters amid the deafening cheers of the other side, he begins to understand what it means to be licked. It is like being licked when we were children. It is being licked for discipline, and before we have undergone that painful experience many times we begin to learn how to take a licking and to " face the music " like men. We are taught not to be " hard losers. " In our after years we shall play these games again, though not inde ed with a pigskin. A pigskin is, after all, only a symbol. It is a business deal, an engineering project, an important legal pro- ceeding or, if you please, just a job. The pistol shot in the board of trade tells the tale of the man who has never learned to lose. He can ' t " face the music " ; he is a " hard loser. " It is essential, then, in college football that we learn to win and that we learn to lose. It is difficult to get a line on the relative strength of the Cornhusker team for this season. I think, however, that the general results of the important games between western teams will show that we average up well with other schools. Our conduct on the gridiron both as to the actual scoring done and the display of sportsmanship was highly satisfactory. We started off with a dash, beating Has- kell, Iowa, Ames, Wabash, tying Minnesota, and being defeated by Kansas and Carlisle. This is a rapid summing up of the season. It ended in an anti-climax, but the last two defeats do not cause the earlier victories to shine with any lesser brilliancv, nor can we in any sense look upon the season as an unsuccessful one. Nebraska lost but one of the five big games on her regular schedule. Minnesota was played to a tie on Northrup field early in the season. Neither side was able to score. Nebraska found that the Gophers had opened up their style of play con- siderably, and were making an effort to adjust this open play to the revised game. This was the first serious trying-ou: of the new game by Coach Williams. In the season of 1907 he was playing the old form of football, using the beefiest men he could find and relying upon the old line hammering st de of play instead of the creations which the new rules introduced. Coach Williams, like the other coaches of the old school, had doubtless looked forward to the more pronounced reaction from the new game, causing a return 214 Foobtall to the old, fuiulaiiK-ntal foothall. Such a reaction did not set in, however. And so the tardy coach of tlie ( iophcrs found Iiiinself at the beginninjj of the season face to face with the same ])roposition that he had Ix-en evading for two years. His results could he no different from the results secured by the other coaches in this first season of new football. His games were a series of experiments, with many defeats and few victories. Nebraska went after the Gophers hammer and tongs. We solved their at- tack at the very outset, broke uj) their plays time after time before they could get them properly formed, and succeeded always in effectually blocking their attempts at field goals. One could scarcely imagine a team more alert on the defensive than was Nebraska. Our line men were particularly aggressive. They played well to the ground, and charged with such speed and fierceness as to frequently drive their opponents back into their own plays. ' J ' he work of Nebraska ends in this game was especially commendable. They were cautious, yet sufficiently ag- gressive to enable them to break up end plays before any appreciable gain had been made, and when they tackled it was hard and sure. On the offense. Captain Harvey ' s team had great speed. They got their plays off in a creditable fashion, making many brilliant runs, although they were somehow unable to i)ush the pigskm over the goal line. Time after time the stal- warts of the Scarlet and Cream carried the ball dangerously near the Gophers ' goal, only to be balked by a stone wall of the Maroon and Old Gold. Both in in- dividual sprints for long gains and in team play Nebraska excelled her opponents. Every Cornhusker i)laye(l an elTective, brilliant game, never weakening nor play- ing any less fierce than at the outset. On the Saturday after the Minnesota game the Cornhuskers journeyed to Iowa City. Oiir boys were up against a hard ])roposition in Iowa, considering the fact that this game was scheduled immediately after the Minnesota contest. With a formidable drop kicker in the ranks of the Ilawkeyes, Nebraska was kept busy blocking attempted field goals. They did this effectively, however, and succeeded in beating Iowa by a comfortable margin in one of the scrappiest games of the season. Our men ]jlayed a steady, beautiful game. Kan.sas came with the best team in her history. They were in the pink of condition and of course keyed up to Nebraska. It is only just and fair to the men to remember that their fine edge was worn dull by a severe schedule, and as a con- sequence the men were in i)oor physical conditi(Mi for this contest. We were licked by Kansas, however. We were licked in a fair, clean game, and we are not offering any excuses. The . ' mes game was played at ( )iii:ilia in tin ])resence of several thousand rooters. It was the prettiest conte.st of the season. Nebraska had smashed the line of the Aggies and circled their ends for seventeen points, while the . mes team, too, had bucked our line so fiercely that by the time the second half was well under way the score was seventeen to seventeen with each team struggling harder than ever, and no very bright outlook for the game ending other than a tie. Nebraska ' s i)lay was open and spectacular. Several long passes had Ix-en successfully manipulated, enabling Cornhusker backs and ends to race down the field for long gains. Ames had offered a different form of attack. They .seemed to be reiving upon the steadies ' system of smashing away at our line with their heavy back field men. It was well towards the end of the second half when Cooke, our elusive little (|uarler-l ack. so like our iohmiie Hender of other days, tucked the pii skin luider liis arm. dodging and side-stei)ping clear of the . ggies, and ran down the field for :i touchdown. This was .i brilli;ml victory for Ne- braska, and llu- l)est game in the season to look at. Wll.l. X. lollNSON. 9 ?

Perhaps more interest in basketball was shown this season by the student body than in any previous j-ear, and with this sort of encouragement prospects for winning teams in the future h.ave materially increased.

The work of the indiviiluals com])osing- the teams was commcndahly consistent and it resulted in the establish- ment of several new L ' niversity records. However, the most fjratifying feature of the season was the summary and humiliating defeats administered to Nebraska ' s old-time rivals, Kansas and .Minnesota. Both of these teams suffered iofiioniin- iously at the hands of the Cornhuskers. Owing to the lateness of the spring and the consequent difficulty in training, the preliminary meet held at the State Fair Grounds. May 2, produced nothing phenomenal, but neither were there any notable failures, and the spirit for the year ' s prospects was generally optimistic. This anticipation was completely verified a week later when the Nebraska team met Kansas on McCook Field at Lawrence. Of the fourteen events on the program, Nebraska won first place in eleven. The points resulting from these firsts alone were sufficient to win the meet, leaving out of account the inniierous seconds which were won. There were only three events in which the Cornhuskers failed to score, the two-mile run. the (|uartcr, and the mile relay. S. M. Collins won first in all three of the weight events and broke the L ' niversity record in the discus by throwing it T15 feet 6jj inches. I ' erry also broke a L ' niversity record in the broad jump. His distance was 22 feet 2 inches. The score at the end of the contest stood 68 to 49 in favor of Nebraska. The third track event of the year was the interclass meet on Ivy Day at the State Farm, May 13. . dverse weather conditions and a poor track again pre- cluded fast time or unusual records. The Freshmen won the meet, the points be- ing divided as follows: Freshmen, 57; Sophomores, 43; Juniors, 17: Seniors, 17. On May 2} , Nebraska took ]jart in the first .Missouri N ' alley Conference Meet at Kansas City. The events were pulled off between downpours of rain on a track with si.K inches of mud and on a field running with streams of water. Under these conditions all principles and laws governing efficient work were swe])t away, and the outcome of the meet is not to be taken as an absolute criterion of the com- parative strength of the teams. Nebraska tied tor fifth place with Kansas at 11 jioints, after .Kmes, Missouri, Drake, and Washington respectively. The liest work was done by the men who hatl the advantage of working on dry ground be- neath a ])avilion. Knode tied for first with two others in tlie high jump at 5 feet 10 inches, thereby tying the l ' niversity record, aiul McMasters took second in the pole vault at the height of 10 feet 10 inches. I ' erry also won a second in the broad jiunp, and thirds weri ' made 1 McDonald and Collins. It was exiK ' cted that the Cornliuskers would lake the meet with the ( ioi)hors on May 29, but so complete a walkaway had scarcely been hoped for. Out of the fourteen events Nebraska won twelve firsts and eight seconds, while Minnesota took two firsts — the half-mile and the pole vault — and six seconds. The best work of the day was done by McDonald in two siilendid hurdle races, lie broke l oth University records, establishing the new mark of 154-5 seconds for the high and 26 seconds for the low hurdles. Wildman tied the University record of 222- seconds in the 22()-yard dash, while Mueller made a very ])rett ' run in the (|uar- trr, capturing the v: cv in ;i r;ilher scnsation;d liiiish.

Again this year team work jiroved to be Xebraska ' s strong point, and too much credit can not be given to Ca])tain IJaumann. who sacrificed his chances of winnin g individual honors in order that he might stay with the team and aid them in crossing the line. Five schools entered tJie race, and tile scores were as follows: Nebraska tirst witli 41 ]joints : I ' nrdne second with 31 jxiints ; Wisconsin third with 59 points; Chicago fourth with ' «; jioinis : aiul Drake fifth with 105 points. Tile in- dividual medals were wnn as follows: tdmstock. Chicago, first: Kinkaid. Pur- due, second; and Meiiiarcb. Wisconsin, third. Xebraska owes her victory to the bunching of her team, the men crossing the line with Trump sixth, llaunumn sev- enth, (iable eighth, . niberson nintli, and ( leorge eleventh. This is the fifth Western Intercollegiate Contest and was held this year under the Chicago Conference. The new troi)hy is a beautiful shield, and is given under the same rules as the Spalding euj) was given, i. e. that it is to remain the prop- erty of the team winning U each year and to remain the j ermanent ]:roperty of the college wMuning it at three annual conttsls.

The meet this year was lield in Lincoln on . pril 17. there beinti five colleges competing in the event. Nebraska was represented 1) but three men: D. C Mitchell. Ditterline, and Trnnivi. and conse(|uenlly was iniable to rank well in the team work. The results were: Chicago first with 12.634 points: Mijmesota second with 10.886 points: Wisconsin third with 10,633 points: Ne- braska fourth with 6,4a) points : and Washington fifth with 28S.4. While Nebraska did not compare very favorably with the lead- ers, yet a Nebraska man, D. C. Mitchell, carried off the individual honors — the scores standing: .Mitchell. 385.8; Berndt. Chicago. 370.9 ; and Uzzel, Minnesota. 326.6. Mitchell showed considerable nerve when, in the tumbling event, he injured his ankle, but went into the last trial, and in spite of the injury won the decisive contest. This being the first meet held at Nebraska, there will be un- doubtedly an increased interest taken in this branch of athletics, and the possibilities of .Nebraska ranking well among the leaders is assured.

Mem- bership in the Tennis Association, which has control of this sport at the Univer- sity, numbered about thirty. The spring tournament developed several promising players who later met the Kansas team. University doubles were won bv Flower and Richey, but owing to rainy weather the singles championship was not decided. The Xcbraska team met Kansas at Lincoln during the latter part of Ma v, the matches being played oft ' at the Country Club courts. The actual result of the match was a disap])ointment, but the experience gained should prove of great ben- efit to the team this coming season. All of the Xebraska players were inexperi- enced in tournament ])lay. while the Jayhawker team was composed of veterans, ranking as the equal of any college team in the Missouri X ' alley. so the Kansas victory was a foregone conclusion. Prospects appear flattering for a very .-successful season at this time. Flower. Richey, Erskine, Racelx ' , and .Slaughter, who took part in the Kansas matches, are all back in school and should play a much better game, and in addition to this nucleus there are several new men who play a good game. . return match will be played with Kansas, and in all jjrobabitity Minnesota, and jK-rhaiis Iowa will be met. It is safe to say that with the advent of the new athletic field, tennis at the University of Nebraska will take a forward stei) to the jiosition it merits in the college world of sports.

Nebraska ' s players must practice on the league grounds, and then only at such hours as are not taken up by the league for games and practice. Another factor in weakening Nebraska ' s baseball chances is the fact that most of the games must be played away from home, and the enthusiasm of the student body is not there to cheer on the men who are worn out with the long and tiresome tri]«. This is also due to the lack of an athletic field. The season of 1908. while a disappointment to all loyal students of Nebraska, has some redeeming features, and shows that our team, under more favorable conditions for practice, could easily have been an " ever victorious. " On May 6 Nebraska won from Iowa, and the next day played Minnesota a 4-to-4 tie game. And again on ] Iay 15, Nebraska lost to the strong St. Louis team by a score of 1 to o and in a twelve-inning game the next day won from St. Louis by a score of 10 to 8.

The first battaUon is stationed at Lincohi, and consists of companies A, B, C, D, and I, the Band, and Hospital Corps. The second battalion, stationed at tlie State Farm, is composed of companies E, F, G, and H. The cadet regiment has undergone great improvement in the past few years, under the able command of Captain John G. Workizer, second Infantry, U. S. A. A very complimentary report was made last year by the Government Inspector to the Secretary of War. During the past winter an officers ' school was held, and a very interesting course in " tactics " was pursued. At the beginning of the University year, on account of the increase in size of the first battalion, a new company was formed. Although company I is handi- capped by a lack of traditions, its members intend to manufacture a few at the next " Compet. " The annual competitive drill lor the Omaha Cup was held last year at the State Fanu. Company A won first place, with companies D, C, and B finishing in the order named. The drill was one of the best ever held at Nebraska, and the results were very close. The annual encampment was held at Nebraska City, May 26 to 30 inclusive. Beautiful weather, ideal camping grounds, and " good grub " made Camp Roscoe Pound one of the most enjoyable occasions of the year. The cadets made very good use of the horse cars, and often employed them, regardless of the fact that the horses were missing. Nebraska City also furnished a " Good Indian " for the band, and the citizens were tempted to employ the cadet slogan, " The band did it. " A highly exciting sham battle was held in which Company A, defending the camp, was totally annihilated by the rest of the battalion. In this engagement the Hospital Corps was enabled to save several lives. The cadet hop given by the people of Nebraska City was very well attended. The large drill grounds afforded an e.xcellent o])])ortunit - for battalion maneuvers and great advantage was taken of this. When Captain Workizer rejoins his company next fall, the University will lose a very efficient officer who has always had the good of " Nebraska " at heart, and we v ' ish him the best of success. ■I. • . — ■ , ' ■. .v.?- — c z _ =-_. s _. - a - .

Membership is by election, and each cadet is required to have one semester of drill at the University. This eliminates all but the best drilled men of the battalion. The company was organized in 1893 by Lieutenant Pershing, who was then Commandant of Cadets. He saw that something besides the regular drill was necessary to give each individual an opportunity to become proficient. Its founder not only contributed in no small measure to the work of the company while here, but has rendered great service since leaving his 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 LTniversity. The Rifles meet every Thursday night for drill. Monthly s]X ' ll-(lowns full of keen competition offer an incentive to attention on the finer points of drill. The prize, a gold medal, must be won three times in succession before it becomes the property of the winner. Those having w ni the medal at least once this year are H. J. Cary, J. A. Scotney, and S. A. Mahood. The Pershing Rifles last year established the custom of marching to the an- nual cadet encampment, by making a practice march of seventy miles to Nebraska Citw This vear the Rifles will make a trip to . shland. .Another innovation be- gun this year was the competitive drill with the Workizer Rifles, which was held at the State Farm, April 21. The Pershings won the " compet " by a score of 81.3 to 71.0. The custom was adopted last year of having all cadet uniforms ordered through the Pershing Rifles. Besides permitting cadets to save money on uni- forms it nets the Pershings a profit, with which they have recently purchased a scarlet and cream standard for the battalion.

At the close of the first registration week, in the fall of 1871, some of the students of the new University — it was no more than a " prep " school — gathered and began the work of organizing such a society. And they named it Palladian. So large a part did this society play in the student life of the early years that the name Palladian is, to the " old grad, " a subtle charm, to bring to life again all the half-forgotten memories of college days. Mere existence through many years, mere histor ' , is no crown of glory. Pal- ladian has other things to its credit. Through all these years it has done much to keep alive the precious, and often threatened, democratic ideals of the founders of the University. It has been a strong open literary society. The regular Friday night meetings in Palladian hall have given to several thousand University stu- dents a valuable training not afforded by any department of the University, a training not only in the literary but also the social side of student life. A number of parties are given each year, and certain traditional Palladian festivals are annually observed. This is the second year in the new Palladian hall in the Temple, and it has truly been a prosperous and successful one in every way. One of the notable events of the year was the thirty-seventh annual banquet, held at the Lindell Hotel December 18. Although a few had departed for their homes to spend their Christ- mas vacation, yet more than fifty gathered around the festive board. This unex- pectedly became the occasion for the loyal followers of the Chocolate and Cream to do honor to one of their alumni, Dr. Samuel Avery, whose election as Acting Chancellor had just been announced. " The good old Palladian spirit " was never expressed with more fervor than when the Palladians who were assembled in the banquet hall greeted Dr. Avery when he rose to respond to the toast, " Among Ourselves. " The name Palladian stands for earnest scholarship and good character. It stands for an active participation in University affairs. It stands for a sane and wholesome social life. . In these days, when criticism is heaped upon the extrava- gance, the dissipation, the ensnobling effect of modern college life, it is good to find that, in the old-fashioned literarv- society, young men and young women may avoid all these things and still enjoy the great benefits of friendly association with their fellow students. The year is nearly over, and many " Pals " will have completed their University course. But not soon will be dimmed in their memory the many pleasant and joy- ful times they have spent together in " old Pal hall, " and many a time on Friday evening there will be present in their hearts a longing to be once again among the " Pals.

Murray, Secretary of Association at State Farm Early in September through the invitation of W. J. Bryan, Jr., there assembled one even- ing at Fairview some thirty-five or forty of the leaders in Y. M. C. A. work. So great an enthusiasm was secured that the work started off with a greater earnestness than ever before, and this fact alone is largely responsible for the great success and progress that the Associa- tion has attained this year. With large, spacious rooms nicely furnished and supplied with many conveniences, with strong leaders and able corps of assistants, the Association has grown in numbers and in seriousness of purpose until today it is perhaps the most potent factor in moulding the lives of a large part of the University men. During the first two weeks the workers were especially active. Many thousand dollars of employment has been furnished to needy students. Hundreds of students have been as- sisted in securing their rooms. Scores of Freshmen were visited in their rooms, getting them acquainted with the right sort of men. Hundreds were entertained at the popular " open houses " held in the Association rooms during the week of registration. Hundreds of Hand- books were given free to the University students. The leading magazines have been placed upon the reading tables: and a pianola piano has been secured, which affords many pleasant hours to those who desire to use it. Later on in the year other events, such as Stag Social in the Armory, feeds at the Red Room and in the parlors of St. Paul Church, were pulled off. Perhaps the crowning feature of the year in the social line was the big joint banquet with the Y. W. C. A. This was a new feature, but bids fair to become a permanent one. In many other lines the Association has been active. Tbe membership has increased to over 700. Over oOO have been enrolled in Bible study. Five delegates were sent to the In- ternational Bible Students ' Conference at Columbus, Ohio, held in October. Some fifteen delegates went to the Hastings Convention in February. Several men were at the Western Conference of Y. M. C. A. men at Cascade, Colorado, last June, and many are planning on being there this year. In March. Edward C. Mercer, of New York, held a series of meetings, and much good was done in broadening and deepening the student conception of religious duty in life. Truly the Association has grown to exert an influence upon the student body such as no other or- ganization does, and the leaders for the coming year go forth with even brighter prospects and no doubt will surpass the accomplishments of this year. 18 Officers.

Although all the committees have done excellent Wijrk, special mention can here be given to the more important ones only. The Bible Study Committee reports 200 girls in systematic Bible study. Besides the usual Bible classes, we have had this year a two-houi; accredited course under Reverend Laur; Wild. The Missionary Committee reports si.xiy girls in mis- sion study classes and mission reading circles. Here also wt have had accrediteil work, a one-hour course under Mrs. T. ]• " . A. Williams. The Social Connnittee has been doing good work all the year. Some of more important social events have been the " at homes " held at the Association rooms each afternoon and evening of registration week, the annual reception held this year at the home of V. J. Bryan, the County Fair, the Bible study Imnciuel. " gym " party, Old Maids ' Convention. Membership campaign " feed, " joint banquet with the Y. M. C. A., and the May Morning Breakfast. The Finance Committee, in spite of tlie usual trials and tribulations of such a connnittee. has carried on its work splendidly. A new line of work which has been introduced this year is the extension work in fac- tories and other such establishments in the city. The work is iiroving very successfid and full of interest. Miss Mabel Snyder, our president, ;:nd .Miss Vibbard. our general secretary, must have special credit given them, for it is they who have borne the responsibility and heli)ed with the plans of all these various branches oi ilie work. The .Association is very proud of its rooms and is only too glad to have other jieople enjoy them also. The Woinen ' s Club makes use of the rooms one afternoon each month. The reception given to the Minne- sota basketball team by the Nebraska girls was held in the nxmis. The teachers atlemling the Nebraska Slate Teachers ' .Association made use of the rooms, ibe .Association girls serv- ing refreshments two afternoons. The Black Mas(|Hes have held their annual reception in the rooms the | ast two years. The girls theinselves use ihe rooms consi.mlly, not only for their meetings but for reading, studying, resting, ele. We take for our motto the motto of associations the wurld over: " Not by might no - by power, but by my Spirit -Jiitli the l. " rd of Hosts. " Organizations 277 The English Club THE ENGLISH CLUB of the University of Nebraska is now entering upon its fifteenth year. It was founded in 1894, and, with the Botanical Seminar, is one of the oldest special departmental clubs in the University. Two, Dr. H. B. Alex- ander and Miss Louise Pound, who were among the charter members of the club as students, still take, as faculty members, an active interest in the Club. Another earlv member. Miss Flora Bullock, is now instructor in English at the State Farm. Among former members who contribute work to current periodicals are Keene Abbott, Dorothy Canfield, Willa Cather, and George C. Shedd. The Club holds meetings, partly literary and partly social in nature, about once a month, at the homes of members. The latter generally give the program, which consists of various numbers : essays, critical papers, verse, dramatic sketches, and short stories. Election to membership is based on proficiency in writing, on knowledge of the mother tongue, the language, and the literature, and on scholarship. Officers. S. B.

IN 191)2 Miss Nellie Dean and Mrs. Ruth Bryan Leavitt, together with some other en- thusiastic Latin students, formed the Latin Club of the L?niversitj ' of Nebraska. Little is now known of the life of the Club during its first two years. In 1904 the present constitu- tion was adopted. Membership is thereby limited to twenty-five, and members are chosen because of unusual ability in the study of Latin. At monthly meetings various subjects pertaining to the classics are discussed. In De- cember we quite surprised ourselves with the vast number of celebrations and glorious fes- tivals which we found our old Roman ancestors indulged in during this month. At the January meeting we heard some interesting discussions of Latin comedy, and the ne.xt month a sample was presented by some of the members. Thanks to the Dramatic CJub, the play was presented in the Dramatic Club room in the Temple. The comedy chosen was the Menaechmi of Plautus. This is of especial interest, since from the amusing entan.gle- ments of the twin Menaechmi, Shakespeare has developed the plot of his Comedy of Errors. Costumes and staging similar to that used in the olden days made the presentation novel and interesting. Due chiefly to the good work of Miss Hunter, earnest and generous as ever, the performance was a great success. During the festival of the Mardigras, the last of February, in New Orleans, was held the convention of the classical association of the Middle West and South. Professor Barber attended this convention and gave the Club at its March meeting a very entertaining and in- structive account of his trip, the important numbers upon the convention program, and the delightful entertainment afforded the .Association members while there. Our annual banquet last spring was held at the home of Miss Jessie Thompson. This was indeed the proverbial " feast of reason and flow of soul. " As a culmination of the year devoted to serious work, this last gathering was given over to fun and feasting. It has long s ince been our custom to set aside four-fifths of our dues for the purchase of some permanent memorial for the Latin Department. In this line nothing has been done further than the " setting aside, " since the beautiful head of Augustus was placed at the east end of the hall on the second floor of University H:.ll in the Latin office.

John Sherlock, Gertrude Radeniacher, and Loretto Donovan, all of the class of that year. Previous to that titne the scarcity of Catholic students had rendered a permanent organization impos- sible. The extraordinary increase in the number of Catholics in the University in recent years has removed those difficulties and resulted in the present flourishing Club. Its purpose is to secure definite cooperation in the promulgation of Catholic literature, the study of Chris- tian doctrine, and the promotion of social intercourse. Through the efforts of the local Club, similar organizations have been established in the various normal schools of the state. Each year these institutions send delegates to Lincoln to meet with representatives of the local organization. At the first gathering a constitution was adopted for what is now known as the Nebraska Federation of Catholic Students ' Clubs. This federation has materially strengthened the course of Catholicity in our state institutions. In 1907 at the University of Minnesota there was organized the National Federation of Catholic Societies of America. This organization was established with a view of embracing all clubs similar to our own in the various universities of the country, and has for its purpose the furtherance of Catholicity in those institutions. The local club became a member of the national organization early in the present semester. The following is a list of the local Club for the year liios-inoii: FIRST SEMESTER Joseph Ebert Otto F.

Hutchinson W. J. Wohlenberg F. N. Wildish THE ENGINEERING SOCIETY of the University of ' ebrasl a was or- ganized November 2 , 1900. In response to an appeal from the Electrical Engi- neering Society to the Civil Engineers ' Club and the Mechanical Engineering De- partment, that an organization might be formed representati ve of the engineering school, representatives from each department met and organized the present en- gineering society. The purpose of the Society is to bring the members into closer fellowship, give the engineering school more prominence, and provide instructive and enter- taining programs for the public. Each year at least two informal receptions are given to all engineers, while the Annual llanquet and Engineering Society Hop give further opportunity for social fellowship among the engineers. In the regular meetings of the Society, which are held in their room in the Temple, popular engineering suljjects are presented and discussed by the mem- bers, or lectures by prominent engineers are heard. . 11 of these things evidently unite the engineering school and bring it into the prominence deserved by it. 1) - e " 5 e Organizations 289 American Institute of Electrical Engineers University of Nebraska Branch Organized 1908 THE A. 1.

Under its direction electrical units and measurements have heen standardized and electrical work as a whole brought into more systematic order. The Institute is represented by members in thirty-nine foreign countries, and its total membership is 5,450. Among the more prominent are such men as C. P. Steinmetz, Alexander (iraham Bell, Professor Elihu Thompson, Xicola Tesla, Thomas A. Edison, and Michael 1. Pupin, all of whom are universall - recognized as authorities on electrical subjects. The local branch was organized June i, iyo8, and has been an active factor in bringing the electrical students together for the discussion of electrical sub- jects. Prominent engineers have been secured to lecture before the branch on topics of present interest and to discuss with the members the proceedings of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers.

It is named in honor of John Amos Comenius, the Czech ethicator of the seventeenth centur_v. It is the first and only organization of Czech students in America. Its organization at Xeliraska dates back to tlie month of November, 1903. At that time, upon the suggestion of Prof. B. Shinek, of Iowa State University, twelve Czech students met and organized the first " Komensky " club. The idea met with such universal approval that soon after similar organizations were ef- fected among the Czech students at the Iowa State University and Ames, Iowa, Urbana, Illinois, and Minneapolis, iSIinnesota. In addition to the university or- ganizations, the alumni of the various schools have organized clubs among the Czechs at Cedar Rapids. Iowa, South Omaha, Table Rock, Humboldt, Wilbur, and Crete, Nebraska, and other Czech communities. In January, 1908, the several clubs sent delegates to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, who met with representatives from the local club. At this convention a consti- tution was adopted and an organization efifected known as the National Federa- tion of Komensky Clubs. It is believed that this federation will materially strengthen the separate clubs and secure a better cooperation in the spread of the doctrine of education among the Czech people than has heretofore been possible. At Nebraska the movement has resulted in the establishment of a department of Slavonic languages. Thus many Czechs, through a study of their native lan- guage and literature, become interested in education and culture in general. Elsewhere, reading circles are being organized and libraries furnished with Czech literature. During the past year several lectures have been given under the aus- pices of the Komensky clubs.

The club meets frequently for study of its subject and dis- cussion of current events ; at times, also, it holds purely social meetings. It is not the purpose of the club to " agitate " ; nor has it ever campaigned for meml er- ship. It is, however, deeply interested in its subject, the e.xtcnsion of the fran- chise to women, and finds its enthusiasm constantly growing. The officers of the national organization, of which the local club is a branch, are: President M. Carey Thomas, president of Bryn Mawr; Secretary Caroline Lexow, daughter of ex-senator Lexow, New York city ; Treasurer Margaret Long, Denver, daughter of ex-Secretary of the Navy John D. Long. Among the vice-presidents are: Mary E. Woolley, president of Mt. Holyoke ; Miss S. P. Breckinridge, dean at the University of Chicago ; and Mrs. C. S.

Alice Howell, head of the department of elocution, the members of her classes organized a club for the purpose of in- terpreting and presenting the drama. At that time any member of any elocution class was eligible to membership in the Club. Later, acting upon the advice of Miss Howell, the Club decided to admit members only upon merit, the merit to be determined by a trial perform- ance before a committee of competent judges, the try-outs to be open to any student in the University. That the Club, in its desire to attain a greater excellence in the interpretation of the best dramatic thought, has helped its members to greater opportunities is shown by the fol- lowing facts. The caste of the Senior Play is made up each year largely of Dramatic Club members. Several members of the Club have become competent coaches and teachers of elo- cution. Among these are Ruth Bailey, who has coached many high school and several large dramatic club plays ; May Edholm, also very successful ; Fay Ewing, teacher of elocution at Hastings College ; Flossie Erford, teacher and coach : Glaideth Denny, who coached the Senior Class Day Play in 190S ; Roy Sunderland, Helen Day, Bashie Tully; and Mrs. Bessie Brown Hartigan, teacher in Hastings College, is also a dramatic reader of some renown. Two former members. Homer Hunt and Harry Melick, are winning distinction playing with excellent companies in New York. Very creditable work is done every year in the way of presenting plays both at home and in the neighboring cities. The best work has been " David Garrick, " with Miss Howell and Mr. Walker Booth playing the leading parts ; " The Russian Honeymoon, " with Miss Carnes and Mr. Edgerton as the principal characters; and " A Scrap of Paper, " with Miss Guthrie and Mr. Hewitt taking prominent parts. Other representative plays given recently are Ber- nard Shaw ' s " You Never Can Tell, " " The American Citizen, " and Percy Mackeye ' s " Jeanne D ' Arc " in monologue by Miss Howell, president of the Club. When possible noted artists are secured to read before the Club. This year Mr. Walter Bradley Tripp was presented in Dickens ' " Martin Chuzzlewit. " FIRST SEMESTER H. Alice Howell J. A.

Since the opening of school last fall more than one hundred students have availed tliemselves of the advantage of this train- ing. The organization and procedure of a regular parliamentary body are observed in all meetings of the society. In her own home Mrs. Raymond ' s hospitality toward the chorus has greatly promoted zeal in the work and the mutual acquaintance of the members. During the present year " The Vikings. " " Allclui-forth. " and selections from Handel ' s " Messiah " have been sung in chapel ; and four vesper services, the string quartet assisting, will have been rendered before the Conmiencement. Great plans have long been under way for the May Festival, in which a renowned orchestra will appear. The Choral Society aims to endear it elf to all music lovers, and with this purpose in view the efforts of its director are steadfastly engaged. FIRST SEMESTER George Heflfelhower Maude Miller F. C.

Woods .Mvine Zumwinkel DURING the past two years the growth of the For- est Club both in numbers an in enthusiasm has been very gratifying to members of the organization. The member- ship has doubled. Interest has been greatly increased by lectures by such men of na- tional reputation as R. S. Zon, William L. Hall. F. B. Moody, and William H. Mart, and by the interest which has been shown by the alumnae of the forestry course. These men have not onh ' sent in many specimens of value to the department, which with other donations has increased its equipment tenfold, but they are also planning to give employ- ment each summer to the undergraduate students of the forestry course. The motto of the Club is " Pull for each other and for Nebraska. " Summer work, spring work at the Halsey planting station, and a trip to some forest region in the winter should so fit the Nebraska men that they will be equaled by few and excelled by none, a reputation which has already been acquired by our alumnae. The active interest of the members has been further shown by the unqualified success of the annual dance, banquet, the unique and mysterious pow-wow, and by the launching of the annual forestry publication which deals with scientific forestry problems. This publication is the iirst of its kind in llic country, and will be of great value to future forestry students. Officers FIRST SEMESTER A. G. Hamel S. Hallett A. T.

Its purpose is to give oppor- tunity for practice in debate and forensic oratory. While the technique of debate is not lost sight of, large stress is laid on ease and effectiveness of delivery. Then, too, the Society is essentially a student organization. It devises its own rules and programs without restraint from outside sources. This fact, and the presence of an audience not too critical, encourage the speaker who might feel discouraged or embarrassed under other circumstances. The Club meets each Saturday evening for debate on some question of current interest. .Ktter the debate proper the topic for the evening is thrown open to the audience, and each one given a chance to express his views in an informal way. The program is sometimes varied by substituting a series of orations on dilYerent phases of the same general topic. The Club has had an enviable record since its organization six years ago. Last year the Club ' s team. Hills, Hare, and Bates, were victorious in a debate at Peru with the Nebraska State Normal School. It is a significant fact that five out of the six speaking members of Nebraska ' s Debating Teams this year were members of the Students ' Debating Club. Preparations are now being made for an oratorical contest in the near future. A gold and silver medal will l)e awarded the winners of the first and second i)lace. The Club this year has a membership of about fifty. Officers FIRST SE.MESTER .■ ECOXD SEMESTER A. M. Hare President Ross W. Bates A. D. Smith Vice-President S. C. Stoner S. V. Shonka Secretary W. H.

Nebraska is a member of the Central Debating Cir- cuit, which inchides Illinois. ' isconsin. Nebraska. Minnesota, and Iowa. The membership of five makes it possible for each university to meet every other uni- versity once in two years. Each university debates the affirmative at home and the negative at the University which it visits. All the debates have the same sub- ject under discussion and all of the debates are held the same evening. This ar- rangement makes it im])ossible for an - school ti have oid - the poor side of an unequal subject. " Should -American Cities . do])t a Commission l- ' orni of City Government? " was the subject argued this year. ISednar, Driscoll. and liates represented Ne- braska in the debate with Illinois. While Nebraska ' s victory was not sustained by the unanimous decision of the judges, yet it was plain from her arguments that she had made a more careful and thorough investigation of the question. On the same evening. December 1 1. N ' otava. Rice, and Dobbs argued the negative side of the question against Wisconsin at Madison. Here. too. although she was excelled in delivery. .Nebraska exhibited an accurate knowledge of the (|uestion. There is every reason to believe that Nebraska will at no very distant date excel in delivery as well. The peculiar excellence of i)reparation found in our teams is no douln due to the methods em])loyed in choosing the team. lughteen men are chosen in a comjictition thrown ojjen to the whole school. These eighteen men meet for daily seminaries. The to])ic under consi leration is thoroughly aired, and doubtful or important points assigned to definite individuals for close examination and re- search. This plan makes it certain that no imiiortant detail has been overlooked. It extends to each nuniliei- of the seminary the benefits of training in dee]) think- ing and systematic work. Nebraska ' s record ibis year was surprisingly successful, when one remem- bers that none of the team members had before taken |)art in an official I ' niver- sity debate. John Rice excels in accuracy and ])recision of thought. Stuart V. Dobbs has had much experience in debate: he was the leader of the Wisconsin team. Votava has an admirable delivery, and at times is even el(M|uent : IUmI- nar proved him.self of great cai)acity when he filled witli large credit tiie place of a team member. Mr. While, who was obliged to withdraw from illness, .Mr. Ilednar ' s stvle is particularly persuasive. Dean DriscoH ' s work is marked b a rapid fire of argiunent which is both logical and cimvincing. On the whole the year has ni t been one wilbont promise for deliale. and there is every rea.son to ho])e for the hit me.

Their purpose is not only to give opportunity for practice in the art of public speaking, but to arouse class spirit and incidentally interest more men in inter- collegiate debating. The teams are chosen by coniijetitive try-outs. . constitu- tion has been adopted for an Jnterclass Debating Hoard which will make the de- bates a permanent University function. The Senior team, consisting of Frank Reinsch. Searl Davis, (ieorge F ' reston. and alternate W ' estover, met and defeated the Junior team, P. J. Haldorson, J. E. Scotncy, John Alexander, and Ralph Moseley, alternate, on the evening of l- ' riday, March 12. in Memorial Hall. The next evening the I-Veshman team, Clark, Rogers, and Hates, met the Sophomore team, A. M. Hare, H. C. Halhawax-. A, M. ( ' Ijertelder, and Hahne. alternate, and the Freshmen were victorious.

Still the clouds had drifted downward, crawling, frowning, near. And ' t was not until the evening, till the closing of the day That the south wind of November drove the clouds away. Sharply smitte n all that morning was the north glass-pane. Dark and threatening drove the drizzle, threatening more than rain. Till to east it swung, then southward, but ' t was later in the day That the south wind of November drove the clouds away. Black the house-roofs and the chimneys stood against the light. Light that cleared out to the westward as the clouds took flight. When the wind moaned o ' er the grass-fields and the rain-pools where they lay. When the south wind of November drove the clouds away. Then the great thick pall was rended, stars shone out between. Two black patches parted and the moon came sailing in; And the dim bare trees bent northward toward the coming winter ' s sway .■ s tliL- south wind of November drove the clouds away.

How it broods o ' er the shadowy view; How it lloats so frail, and it sinks so pale Through the light and the dark— hut ' tis creeping, ' tis creeping And from somewhere thrills a woodland air.

Take heed, brethren, lest ye fall in the pit and be consumed. For the evil have laid their traps in high places. Yea, even in the sanctuaries of the Profs, have they placed their snares. 2. Thou art bewitched with soft words and shy glances. Thou hast whirlcy- gigs in thy head and thy heart fluttereth. Behnld ! Thou hast turned from the straight and narrow way. 3. Thou art made to forget the words of the Profs., and thy steps are turned towards the dwelling places of the sororities ; where thou art compassed about by much ice and placed in cold storage. 4. And the days pass and the e.xams. come, and thou art unprepared. And lo — it is as I have said, thou passeth not. 5. But doth thy girl care? 6. Nay, she sheddeth no tears ; yea, she is even as gay as a lark in the spring. 7. For a woman is like a weed of the fields which taketh unto itself all good- ness, yet returneth no goodness unto the earth. 8. Stay ye, therefore, in the straight and narrow way and depart not from it, lest ye receive the ossified glance. 9. For damned are they who hang around the abodes of the Co-eds. By the inhabitants thereof, h the other loafers, and li ' the Dean of Women. -J. H. Ah! yes, I think, ' tis Vera Fink Whose heart so wildly tlirohs And palpitates when ere one states The name of Stnart Dobhs. Ji Jt Ji I ' d like to say to Helen Day, " My heart I ' d give to thee.

She made the test f|iiite easy, bnt she sadly shook her head And she sighed with pitying glances, as to them she gently said : " Remember what 1 ' ve told you, about the way you write. Make your letters close together, and all of equal height ; And though your thoughts all leave you, and you feel of sense bereft. Do n ' t forget about the inargin, the margin at the left. " She gathered in the papers, she glanced them quickly o ' er, She saw that they were worse than they had ever been before ; For those who had good answers forgot their margin space And those who had wide margins left an almost spotless face Hardly touched upon the questions. She knew not what to do. Which ones should be flunked flat and which should be let through. " I admire the brains, " she murmured, " but still more the hands so deft- I can ' t flunk those with a margin, a margin at the left. " Full many a year hereafter, when her busy hands are still. And she enjoys the blessing of the Carneigy Pension Bill, Her friends will come to see her, and no doubt they ' ll want to laugh. When they see her thoughts all centered on her tombstone epitaph. She ' II say, " The time is coming, when this mortal life shall cease, .■ nd I ' 11 want a tombstone o ' er me that my bones may res! in peact.

I sat in the class room one warm day. But heard not what the Prof did say. For I gazed outside to the cool green lawn, And drowsy I got till I had to yawn. And the class passed out while I snored away. And they left me alone on tliat warm day. .. J .

" Say " Ling Roasting Ears 418 Echoes from the Class Room Prof. Conant (in class on Cori oniliuns) — Mr. Ferguson, you may give us your notes on the case of Head versus Head., Fcrgie — The defendants were the Heads of the insolvent firm of Head Head. One was a wise old Head, the other was a rather peculiar fellow, sort of a puzzle Head. The wise Head died, and this is a suit by the Head cred- itor of the firm to sap Head of the assets of Head Head. The question involved is. Should the live Head of Head Head be required to pay the debt of Head Head to the Head creditor, who was a fat head, for he weighed 300 pounds ? By the decree of the court. Creditor Head came out ahead of Head of Head Head, for it was held that the puzzle Head could not block Head, the fat Head, from recovering from Head Head, but tliat the Head creditor could not recover from the dead Head. Herr Clemsens came late to German class one morning and in reply to Professor Fossler ' s " Sind sie schon frisch und munde? " cheerfully replied in the affirmative. Then wishing to further ascertain the extent of the student ' s vocabulary, the Professor put the question, " Was batten sie fiir Friihstiick ? " " Zwei Stucke Brot, zwei Tassen Kaffe, " he returned and then hesitated, hav- ing forgotten the word for eggs. A whispered co nsultation with his seat- mate elicited the desired term, and he finished with the startling informa- tion, " Zwei Hennifruiti. " First Prof — What do you want? I haven ' t any money — the school owes me 40 cents yet. Second Prof — Do you get that much a year from this University? Prof, Conant — Mr. Patton, liovv do you conform these two cases? Pus Patton — In the lirst place, I don ' t conform them, and in the second place, I don ' t see why either case was decided tliat way in the first place. After a Delta Gamma party at Colonel Bills ' house last winter Augusta Harnsberger and Arthur Jones were saying goodnight to Breta when Breta said, " Mr. Jones. I want vou to meet my mother.

Only a grain from Time ' s hour glass. The Hour Bells clang with loud appeal, Clarion tones from a tongue of steel. Opportunity rests with you To rise or fall, to fail or do. Only a slice from the loaf of Day, Nourishing life or thrown away. Day Bells all the earth are waking. Habit forms from one day ' s making ; Soft as w.ax was the habit begun, Hardened to steel with the setting " sun. Only a page from the Season ' s book. The record Guardian angels took. The Bells of the Week swing side by side, Seven-fold chimes together ride. Sum up your efforts and count the cost, A week well spent or rare chance lost. Only a starry cluster of seven Lighting to doom or the path to heaven. The Bells of the Month a chorus rings, Tuned by a harp of thirty strings. The push and roar of a mighty throng; No idlers here in the strife belong. Only the waves of a mighty tide The faithful floodgates opened wide. Slowly the Year Bells swell and wave. What have you done with the time God gave? Closed the Calendar, ring the knell, A life ill spent or work done well. Only God ' s mercy now the key To open for us Eternitv. —1. S. H.

It took several moments for him to recover himself; then he saw that he had stepjieil off the side- walk into the dusty road. In fact, the sidewalk stojiped there abru])tly, and only the highway bordered b ' trees stretched on ahead for a short distance when it made a turn. There were only a few houses in sight behind him. " Dear, dear, " murmured the Professor, " I must have walked to the edge of town. " He fumbled with his watch. " Half ]iast two! 1 nuist lnirr . At three I have to be — .

" I remember it was something which I had been looking forward to, and it was at three o ' clock, " he kept repeating to himself. " Where was it?

" Ciood afternoon, Samuel, " crie l the little man, hiirryini; joyously through the dust to his friend ' s side. " Er — er — Sanniel, it wasn ' t a tea, was it? " " Tea! " the other ' s voice rolled out ponderously, " what wasn ' t a tea? eh. ' " " Where 1 was oing, " e.xplained the Professor, gazing at his friend over his glasses. " The fact is, Samuel, I — er — er — was thinking of something else and I forgot — forgot where I was going. Do you — that is, can you tell nie — ? " But Samuel had begun to rumble in a most alarming manner. The rumble grew in volume, broke into a roar, and ended suddenly between a sneeze and a squeal. The Professor watched in trepidation. In fact he could never remem- ber that he had not watched with an.xiety when his friend laughed. It IcMjked so dangerous, for the round face (|uite disapi)eared in the many chins, and the whole big body trembled violently. Then the end was so disconcerting; it left one stranded, as it were. " Forgot! Forgot where you — ! ( )h. Lord! " wheezed Sanniel, trying desper- ately to compose himself. The Professor stood ineekl - by and waited. . t last he ventured : " Do you know where it was that I — er — was going? " By this time Samuel ' s face had again appeared. " Where you were going? To be sure I do. Jump in, Dave, and we ' 11 go together. 1 " m bound for the same place. Forgot where he was going ancl he the chief mourner. " and he threatened to e. ])lode. " Chief mourner!

" here — , " began the Professor. " Think I ' m going to tell? Xo, sir. This is too big a joke. Vou ve got to remember yourself. Say. Dave, do you remember the times you usetl to forget to go to class, an " the boys would have to come for you? I tliought that was bad enough, but this — I " Samuel wheezed with delight. . s for the Professor, he was too taken up with clinging to his small port ' on of the seat to be annoved at his friend ' s too active memory. In after years he forgot many things, but never that ride. ' ainly he racked his mind while his companion dug up the forgetful ])ast. Once several elderly gentlemen passed them, and, as Samuel said that they w ' ere bound for the same ])lace, the little gen- tleman ceased to worry. He would be among friends wherever he was going. . t last they turned into a side street and a few moments later stojiped be- fore a little gray church. .Sanniel lifted himself iKinderously over the wheel and tied Psyche, who was already fast asleep.
