in debating Is especially olt color. It
seems that few caro whether tho Scar

braska should havo an array of pat
riots at her back, willing to sacrifice
tho price of a theatre ticket to fur
ther her prowess. It only demands
a llttlo Nebraska spirit.

In an Institution as lurgo its Ne
braska University .wiicro It is not easy
to niako tho acquaintance of follow
Htudonts, It Is Important that ono
should Join homo social organization.
Many students go through college
almost unknown, except by a low
whom thev chance, to hocomo ac
quainted with In tho execution of
Iheir dully duties, bchool should
not bo a drudgery. It should bo a
social period In the llfo of every m
alvldual as well as a tlmn of mental
growth and attainment.
Tho re is a class of students, here
as well as in other schools, no doubt,
wlm room to havo an enormous snnKo
of their own importance. In other
worciB they aro filled with supremo
egotism. Perhaps they havo suffered
an Illusion and think themselves sim
ply Belt-possessed. If so It can only bo
lamented: Would that they might
oo themselves ns others seo them.
Thoy certainly do glvo ono the im
pression that thev aro possessed but
by the same Satanic Majesty as pos
sessed tho Biblical swine. There's
u world of difference between egotism
and- confidence. The latter is com
mendable but nothing Is more dis
gusting than the former.
Nobraska lacks spirit. Some few
students back ono project, others an
other, but there Is lacking that uni
versal support, whether It bo In bas
ket ball or short story contest. In
otjior colleges the debater is escorted
to the train aud cheered on his way.
If the contest bo at homo, the repre
sentatives face a cheering multitude
Whether or not. Nebraska will
schcdulo basketball games with Min
nesota and Wisconsin rests with tho
student of tho University. With
proper support from tho student
body tho management will fed them
selves safe in undertaking tho ex
pense of games with those instituti
ons. No ono who is Interested in the
game can fail to see tho advantage
of contost with these athletic leaders
of the weUi. Michigan and Wisconsin
aro to western athletics what Har
vard and Yale aro to eastern athlet

scheduling theso games, students

Under the head of "Free Hecr at
Tech.," and similar wild and woolly (
tlt'cs tho daily papers of Hostmi and
vicinity for two or three weeks team
ed with accounts of doings at that
popular engineering school, which
accounts were wholly calculated to
bring roproach upon it. The excite
ment ran high for a time. Parents
began to worry for tho moral safety
of their boys. Prospective engineer
ing students linked askance at a
school that sanctioned the practices
alleged to bo in vogue there.
The whole trouble arose over a
"Kommer." A "Kommer" it may
bo explained 13 a (Jcrman Institution
which when hold in America 1b com
monly known as a "smoker." The
"Kommer'' Is, however, a llttlo
more than a smoker in that tho re
freshments consist not only in tobac
co but also in commodities of a
moistor nature. In brief a smoker
was held at Tech. under the auspices
of tho junior class aud under the sanc
tion of tho faculty at which beer was
To add to the scandal onl a few
weeks before, Prelsdent Prltchard
had, in an address, commended tho
democratic gatherings of German
students at which It Is understood
raoro or less beer is consumed. This
was suniclent to set the press of
fiostoji agog. Boston Tech. got
moro frco advertising within the
next few weeks than for years before.
Whether or not it was of a kind cal
culated to do more goon than harm
Is a question.
Tho outcome or tho oxcitomonb
seems to be that the Tech. will not
abandon tho "Kommer." Thoy will
only cutout thobcer. The Students
feol that thiswill give thorn tho ad
vantages of democratic meeting place
tor tho different classes and at tho
same time obviate tho objectionable I
advertising that followed their first
efforts at German democracy.
