THE UNIVERSITY MARCHES ON
The University is welcoming to the campus this
week-end alumni who have come back for class re
unions and an opportunity to see the University in
action." Various entertainments, staging of tradi
tions," banquets, and other memory-recollecting fea
tures are in store for them. All these features the
alumni will no doubt enjoy, but most of all will they
probably be satisfied when they see first hand that the
dear old University, the subject of many disquieting
rumors all winter and all spring, is running along to
all intents and purposes as efficiently and smoothly as
of old. .
Several excellent professors have left in the past
year. One or two may leave next year, but an over
whelming number of other excellent men and women
still remain on the faculties to guide the destinies of
As one old and honored member of the faculty
who has seen the University through many trying per
iods in the last thirty years has observed, there has
never been a time when there were not alarmist pre
dictions for the future. And there never has been a
time when the University did not steadily rroerfsp
nearer and nearer to realization of its ideals of service
to the state in training of better and better citizens.
For every lamented departure of excellent professors,
the University has always somehow been able to find
men that would grow and develop to occupy the same
positions, without mention of the many outstanding
sons of the University who have literally grown up with
in the campus walls.
Yes, the University has weathered many a storm
of criticism. Probably others are in store in the distant
future. But ever and ever has the University made
itself better, more useful, and more valuable. Each suc
ceeding reunion within the shadows of its halls bears
out this great truth to alumni, young and old.
One of Lincoln's most popular springtime evening
sports this year seems to be auction sales. Several times
a week the streets i nvarious parts of town are crowded
for blocks with cars of scores of people eagerly bidding
for bargains as households effects of some disbanding
family are disposed of under the auctioneers gavel.
NO MARTYRDOM HERE
In the adjoining column is printed an editorial
which appeared yesterday in the Omaha Bee concern
ing the recent outbreak of instructor Jensen of the
department of romance languages.
The editorial simply reflects the common sense
attitude of a great many people towards a situation
wherein a subordinate instructor of the University finds
himself in open conflict with the governing board of
the institution, and riot satisfied with that, openly
flouts its authority and integrity. Of course, Mr. Jensen
has a most perfect right to his opinions as the Bee
editorial points out, hut the right to stir up trouble
and cast discredit on the governing board is somewhat
in question when he is at the same time an employee
of the institution. In this connection it should be stated
that every student, faculty member, and employee has
the right of respectful petition to the Chancellor
and the Board, but when that right is used in an
abusive manner and to all intents and purposes in an
aggressively combative and seemingly purposely pro
vocative manner, the time is ripe for some disciplinary
The Chancellor and the Board of Regents have
displayed extraordinary patience in dealing with Mr.
Jensen. It is safe to say that in hardly any other insti
tution, public or private, would his connection with the
payroll have continued after his present and past
Perhaps the great display of patience on the part
of the Chancellor and the Regents has been prompted
in part by a reluctance to make Mr. Jensen a "martyr".
In fact the suspicion can hardly be quelled that some of
Mr. Jensen's outbreaks, and especially this last one,
have a "martyr" motive behind them. As the Omaha
Bee intimates this procedure has been a favorite with
men of the type of Scott Nearing and others. "
After reading Mr. Jensen's Wednesday morning
circular in which he charges the Daily Nebraskan with
making a cowardly attack upon the contents of the
letter he wrote the Board of Regents, the Daily Ne
braskan is more than ever doubtful about the many
charges which Mr. Jensen is hurling so promiscuously
against the Regents, the Chancellor, and other University-Authorities.
Apparently perfectly consistent- with his system T6I
logic which seems to have as its major premises the
propositions that everything that Mr. Jensen does is
right, proper, and meritorious, and that everybody
who disagrees is a liar, a coward, a sneak, and a scoun.
drel, it is no wonder that Mr. Jensen finds extreme fault
with the Daily Nebraskan.
Finding it rather difficult to believe that both the
city papers as well as the- Daily Nebraskan should have
independently scaled the news value of his letter down
to zero on the simple basis that locally it was not news
considering the source, Mr. Jensen promptly goes about

already too long list of rules. And, the additional
ones like most of the ones we now have would be
violated on every hand. There are rules regulating the
conduct of men that many do not know exist.
On the other hand if such a man were employed
he would be unable to do justice to the duties he would
be given in view of the management of the University.
To cite a specific example, a dean of men would no
doubt be concerned with the living quarters of men.
To familiarize himself with conditions under which
men live and to attempt to correct any malarrangements
would take up his entire lime. Thus he would have no
opportunity to execute other duties which would be
Again to hold conferences with students, give ad
vice and do the million and one other things expected
of him while in his office, would take up his entire time.
And all of it wpuldVRe of little avail.
The University has progressed very nicely without
a dean of men so far. We are unable to see where we
could fit such a man into the arrangements of things
here to any great advantage.
So, since we already have more rules than we have
any need for, since such a man would not have suf
fi.iaxf timo fn An justice to his Dosition, and since we

have thus far progressed nicely without one, we cannot
see where Ohio State needs a dean of men.

Every now and then another of our ideals of col
lege students is sent to the discard. All these folks
who are supposed to be the cream of the country and
the torch-bearers of future progress are rapidly turn
ing out to be flops if one is to believe what one reads.
Several more or less noted persons hp ve voiced the
opinions that college students are parasites and a bunch
of snobs turned out by an educational factory. They
are incapable of having an original idea or of doing
any constructive thinking.
Now comes along James P. Moore, commissioner of
parks and public buildings in Buffalo, who says students
are impossible as manual laborers also.
"When is comes to work, college students are use
less," says Mr. Moore, "and I have forbidden the em
ployment of any of them in the department this sum
mer. I hired some last summer and most of their time
was spent in strumming ukeleles or shooting craps."
Think of that! It must be said in defense of Mr.
Moore, that he gives them credit for the ability of play
ing a ukelele and of shooting craps.
Although we can't take Mr. Moore's statement se
riously, we wonder just what it was that prompted his
scintillating indictment of the college student.
Perhaps the gentleman unconsciously envies the
life and vigor of the college students and resents the
fact that they won't be driven like a bunch of oxen as
are many of the common laborers.
Oh, well, Mr. Moore, we will stay out of your
town this summer.

The overseers of Harvard College have voted not
to accept a legacy of $60,000 left by Dr. J. Ewing
Mears for the endowment of a chair in eugenics with
the stipulation that it be used at all times for instruc
tion in accordance with his own teachings. They took
the position that an educational institution should not
pledge itself to teach for years in the future theories or
opinions to which its faculty might be unwilling to sub
scribe. In this incident, though the fund in question was
comparatively small, is a lesson not only to the govern
ing bodies of other educational institutions, but to
benefactors of such institutions also. It has been
charged against American colleges receiving their sup
port primarily from endowments that they are not
always free to teach the truth as they see it because of
the nature of their support and the danger of cutting
off important sources of income. Sinclair Lewis prob
ably exaggerated the danger in "The Goose Step," but
he called attention to a situation which had been the
source of no little discomfort to many a college faculty.
If higher education is worthy of the support of
persons of substantial means, it will justify this support
only to the extent that faculties are permitted to pursue
their search for knowledge without regard to what they
may find, or how their findings may affect the interests
of their contributors. Funds accepted with strings at
tached, even though at the time they are contributed
the conditions imposed seem to be' harmless enough,
could very easily embarrass the institution receiving
them, and in the end defeat the ends of liberal educa
tion. No aspect of academic freedom can be more im
portant in the end than the freedom of educators a
generation or two hence to teach the truth as they see
it Nothing can be more inconsistent with the aims
of science than a condition that certain funds con
tributed for educational purposes shall always be used
to teach an opinion which the donor of the funds be

cash prizes of $250 each. One is for
the best high school essay, and one
for the best essay produced by a col

essays are limited to 250 words each.
The teaching authorities them
selves will determine the best essays
written by pupils and students under
their jurisdiction. Those selected
will be forwarded directly to the
American Railway association for
final consideration. The contest is

being built, one on the west and one
on the north. The external feature
of the edifice is the loggia porch
which will be open for the present
but will be enclosed latter on.
A unique interior arrangement will
consist of a hall running through the
center of the building, a north and
ane east parlor, quarters for the
chaperone, a guest room, and a tea
room. The second and third floors
will be made up entirely of sleeping
rooms, with sitting rooms on each
floor and a study hall on the former.
There will be no dormitories. Ac
commodations for thirty-five girls
will be available. The new home
will be completed in time for the
opening of the school year.
Of the new sorority homes, the
one nearest completion is that of
Gamma Phi Beta, located on North
Sixteenth between R and S streets.
The architecture of the building is
Georgian type. The building is so
well under way that it will probably
be finished before the fall term
opens. This new home is somewhat

Prof. Anton H. Jensen seems to have about ended
his career at the University of Nebraska. If his course
had not already assured this, his latest outburst un
doubtedly justifies the conclusion that he is through,
and that he knows it
He came into notice some months ago by his op
position to compulsory military training at the uni
versity. This he coupled with other activities that met
the disapproval of the authorities. It is quite within
the right of Professor Jensen, or any other man, to
differ from the policy of the institution he is expected
to serve. Also, his right to voice his opinion, and to de
fend his views. To secure support and to bring about
reforms he deems for the good of all.
So' far there can be no quarrel with the professor.
He is Unfortunate, though, in failing to enlist sufficient
support to make his ideas prevail. Those who have
charge of conduct and discipline at the University of
Nebraska differ sharply both from and- with Professor
Jensen. He could not bring them to his way of think'
ing, so he violently denounces them. Charges them with
doing a lot of things, of which deliberately falsifying
statements is the least.
Such conduct naturally would subject the offender
to discipline, but in the present case the course of
"'lowing him to finish the end of the year and then
not re-employing him will be followed. However the
people of Nebraska may divide on the subject of mili
tary training at the university, it is not likely they have
lost confidence in the board of regents or the chancel
lor. They do not believe that these men will tell lies,
or be guilty of sharp practice in the management of
the big school. Nor is it conceivable that all the faculty
heads or members are so distrained from utterance
that they would supinely submit to such maladminis
tration as is charged by Professor Jensen.
Professor Jensen has apparently set his foot on
the path blazed by Proessor Scott Nearing. It is an
easy road to public notice, and has opportunities for
reward not always available to one who devotes him
self to his professorial duties. He will not be envied
nor obstructed in his pursuit of that path. As far as
the University of Nebraska is concerned, it wW pon.
