THE UNIVERSITY LITERARY SO
CIETIES. It is said by Bomo who havo grad
uated from tho Unlvoralty, and who
havo boon members of eomo lltorary
socloty, that thoy havo rocolvod as
much good from tho society as from
ton hours of University work. Those
who aro active momborB of a lltorary
society get an actlvo training In pub
lic speaking which thoy would other

There aro at present throo lltorary
soclotlos In tho University of Nebras
ka, with tholr adjunct dobatlng clubs.
Tho Palladlan will soon colobrato Its
thirtieth birthday. Tho Dollan and
Union societies aro younger, but Just
as active, and do much good for tholr
members. Tho Palladlans and Unions
havo halls of tholr own, nicoly fur

Tho Palladlans havo a piano, posting
sovoral hundred dollars, which 1b all
paid. This piano is a result of the ef
forts of former Palladlans who saw tho
need of music In tho course of tho pro

When these societies were first In
stituted membership was limited to
boys and tho girls camo only to look
on. In a few years girls were given
membership and tho time-honored cus
tom of scratching tho slate began.
This Is for tho purpose of getting the
male members of tho society distri
buted properly among tho girls. It
provonts tho boys from asking tho
same girl for her company.
Upon Investigation It will be found
that many prominent professional and
business men of today owe a part of
tholr success in life to tho training
thoy received in theso societies. There
aro members of the faculty of tho
Unlvrslty wllOM names aro upon tho
old records of tho societies. It is true
that not all of them havo belonged to
tho literary society proper, but they
havo belonged to tho dobatlng club
connected with It. There aro tho
Palladlan, Dellan and Union Boys'
debating clubs, which meet every Sat
urday night and discuss tho questions
of tho hour. Hero Is where many
young men got their only opportunity
for training in parliamentary UBagos.
Tho literary societies meet on Fri
day evening of each week and carry
out a program consisting of essays,
recitations Talks, and music. Some
times a short play is given.
Visitors aro invited and aro mado
to fool at homo. Their acquaintance Is
cultivated by members of tho Bocloty,
for each socloty wants new members
of the proper kind.
