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 wise not got. It Is cortaln that thoy bocomo acquainted with moro people, and lead a moro ploasant social life, i than thoso who belong to no organi zation whatever. 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 nished and spacious. Tho Dollans moot In tho old chapel, but 'expect to havo a hall of tholr own when a largo appropriation Is mado by tho next legislature. 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 gram. Tho Unions also havo a piano, and its use is a noticeable feature In tholr programs. 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.
