For many poor )cople among us, who need the direct j means of earning a subsistence, it is ather absurd to give th?m the studies of the leisure class. Also many a boy dull in mathematics or science may have a good eye and a steady arm, and may make a skilful carpenter or brick layer. Of course, the possibilities are as wide as the diversity of men. . Ger many is far ahead of us in providing technical schools for the artisan class. In short, we should make it as easy in our public schools for a boy or girl to obtain training in mechanics, plumbing, woodworking, cooKing, telegraphy.etc, etc., as in geometry or chemistry. All Will A. Robinson Is Editor Of the 1909 Nebraska Cornhusker the greatest book ever by students. As stated on its title page the Corn husker is "published annually by the upper clashes of the Univernity of Ne braska, volume throe being a partial record of the huppenings during the cwllejje year lOOlHOOX" To make this recurtJ there are Ail pages of bright, snappy matter, including photographs, drawing and cartoons. Two hundred pages of the book are devoted to a hintury of each of the classes with individual paragraphs and photographs for each of the upper class men. This matter is arranged .by col leges, each department of the univer sity having its graduates and junior ttmuped together. Athletics claim forty-nine pages ,and the military tiw.nts are given fifteen pages. Sixty ugs are given over to the fraterni ties and Bororitiej, fifty pages are taken up hy other societies, and the rest of the book is devoted to literary coni o ijilions, roasts and jokes. lit I'Jiw Lornhu.-iker is more tnan a catalogue of the university. It gives a chief of the publication. He is a mem her of the law fraternity Phi Delta I'ei and of the Masonic college organization known as Acacia. He has been presi dent of the university republican clul and a member of the junior prom, com mittee. His home is at I'lattsmouth O. Bentley, business manager of the book, is a junior engineer. He is member of I'hi Kappa I'si and of the engineering society. He has been man acrer of several class athletic teams He is n graduate of Lincoln high school As managing editors the Cornhusker has E. W. Hills, 190!), K. S. Moseley 1010, C. P. Peterson, law 100!), and L. H. Studevant. medical 1000. Associate editors are named as follows: Helen Gray, 1000, Gcrtrud Neilson, 1000, Lies sic Holcomb. 1000, G. W. Peters, 1001), Ethel Perkins, 1910, Florence Uiddell 1010. Jessie Deming, 1010, Vallery White, 1010. There are some forty other assistants on the staff who have had a part in getting together the ma terial which makes up the book Probably the most noticeable feat ure of the 1010 Cornhusker, wherein it differs from the publications of pre vious years, is in the artistic effect ob tained in grouping the individual photographs. In the arrangment of the junior and senior pictures a stand ard form has been followed throughout the book, but in the fraternity, sorority and society departments there is dis- this applies to women as well as to men. women s wages are low be cause they are usually unskilled and al so in a crowded class. Our cities and our towns should be dotted with train ing schools suitable for giving practical preparation for agriculture, manufac tures, and commence. At present, the unemployed or the very poor have no trade of any kind, or are confined to some one habitual task, like sewing on clothing cut by machinery. Today, when carpenters or plumbers get four dollars for a day of short hours, and even "make work." no man handy with tools need be poor or out of em ploymcnt long. It should not be neces sary to press this matter upon the reader; its effectiveness for increasing the wages of the very poor must ap pear at a glance. In addition, its ulti mate end is to inculcate individual in dependence and self-respect; it frees the laborer from servile dependence for his post upon the mere caprice of an employer. The increased efficiency given to an unskilled man increases his utility to his employer, and increase the demand for his services. Middle and Western states, where the tralfic is comparatively light, we take land of an average value of $100 per acre and cut it up with highways sixty-six feet in width, practically two thirds of the same being given over to weeds which furnish an inexhaustible supply of seeds for the adjoining farm lands. The farmer in Germany who has conquered the weeds on his ground need have no thought of them being started again from uncultivated or uncared-for land along the roadways. There are r.o weeds, no mud, r.6 chuck holes, no sand stretches in the roads. One of the simplest and most practi cal measures that could be taken for j inc uuttt-'i inc. ik u. lua'ia ... tuc 1 States would be to reduce their width to from one-third to one-half of what they now are. In the United States, public high ways in the states given below may be estimated as follows: Minnesota, 80,- 00); Wisconsin. 60,000; Michigan. C0, 000; Iowa, 70,000; Kansas, 70,000; Ne braska, ,"0,000; Missouri, 80,000; Illi nois, W.000; Indiana, 70,00'); Ohio, 80. 000; total, 7OO.0U0 miles. Reducing the width of these public highways, which now average sixty-six feet, to thirty six feet, would irive back to the farm ers of these states, for cultivation, 1; million acres of generally tillable land, which, at an average valuation of $100 per acre, would mean the restoration to the producing values of the state: '.Mid p.'ace.'ul glade? and fra -rant dells, Wlu-te Nature's song is full and free, Bts'de ti e inurm'iii.g brook, that tells A wondrous story unto rue Where velvet mosses softly cling To serried bank, and gnarled tree.

There has been an attempt everywhere on the part of the editors to gain for their boooks this"Nebraska spirit." It is manifest on the dedica tion page in the words with which the v?ork is dedicated to Dr. George Evert (Jondra, professor of geology, who has detsrt conspicuous among the faculty as a. chumpion of school loyalty. It is manifest in the verses of the universi ty ong, composed by ex-Chancellor E. lienjamin Andrews, and it shows else nwKire in the book wherever there has Iteen a chance to bring in the "Ne Itnki spirit" to the front. The Cornhusker stall is itself com jiojwd of students who are generally recognized as having the spirit which they have striven to give their book. VV. A. Robertson, law 1000, is editor-in- page designs which serve as a back ground for tha individual photographs. In most of the sorority pictures, for in stance, tho pictures have been arrang ed in a form symbolical of the soroiity pin or some other emblem peculiar to the particular organization concerned. This idea has never been tried before in a Cornhusker or other university an nual and it gill probably meet with the full approval of the students. Not only are the pictures arranged artistically, but tha general art work in the publication is above the average of university books. A number of full page drawings by P. K. Fredericks, 1011, are worthy of note and heading by "Deacon" are well executed. ' The one noticeable deficiency of the book is in fun. The 1000 Cornhusker will probably rank as the most serious annual ever yet published by the uni versity students. There are plenty of roasts, but real downright fun is lack ing. Lincoln Journal.

This advice U coming from all sides as a result of re cent experiments on foods to determine which arc the best for strength and en durance. It has been proved that caters of Quaker Oats and such cereals are far superior in strength and endurance to those who rely upon the usual diet of heavy, greasy foods. When all is said and done on the cereal food question, the fact remains that for economy and for results in health and strength, Quaker Oats stands first of all. It is the most popular food in the world among the foods sold in packages.
