Professor Davenport Says Thoir Con
nection with Universities is
Advantageous Isola
tion UndeBirablo.
Professor E. Davenport, Dean of
the Illinois collego ot agriculture and
Regent E. ton Forrol Rave brief talks
-before the Univorslty convocation
yesterday morning.
Professor Davenport who is in at
tendance at the meeting of the No
Ijraska live stock association, gavo a
short discussion of the aeslrablllby of
having the University composed of
riilloront schools. Regarding the
question of conducting an agricultur
al school In connection with the Uni
versity, much doubt has been going
on soroo holding that it would not
be to the Interest of either. How
ever, he salo, thcro were strong reas
ons whv tho two should work togeth
er. Tho University on tho whnlo Is the
embodiment of all kinds of thought,
literary, scientlDc, legalete. For this
reason there is not only co-education
as Is commonly understood but also
oo-eoncatlon of different schools. The
University thon Is in reality a little
world oy Itself whero BtudentB can
find those who aro to represent the
.active life for which thsy aro prepar
ing. Tho stuaent of law, when he en
ters into thopractloal world, will not
bo thrown among lawyers alone, but
itmonir men representing all the pro
fessions. Then the college training
should bo such as to prepaio the stu
dent bThcluing him to oultivato tho
acquaintance with other ideas than
those in which he is directly interes
ted. The ease of the agricultural school
is not different. It should not be
isolated from the rest of tho colleges,
but thrown into the same environment
as these. The University will then
present the whole mass, though the
upper strata it is truo. And according
to its principle of heredity, said Pro
fessor Davenport, it is from this that
all greatness must come, and cot as is
"sometimes supposed, from anticident
greatness. Professor Davenport was
pleased to see that the University of
Nebraska had an agricultural school in
connection with the other colleges,
thus giving each the benefit of ming
ling with tho other
Regent Forrel Impressed upon tho
students the necessity of keeping two
things in view while striving for a
college education. To gain power ac
companied by the ability to do was
tho first thing to bear in mind. But
without the second object in mind
tho training would doubtless result
In failure. This object Is the getting
of an inspiration for a deslro to do.
When the student leaves collego with
the ability to do and tho desire to do
ho has tho two qualities that are abso
lutely essential to success. The world
wants men ror what, they can do and
not for what thoy thinK.
It will be possible for a limited
number of students to begin work in
the machine shop, next semester,
taking the regular work listed as
Mechanical Enigneering f. Students

chanical Elgnecring 1. 2, and n. and
preferably 4 as well.
Eight or ten men are all that can
bo accommodated and assignment of
days for work can only be roada
after forming tho section in Mechanic
al Eglnoering 0. Persons desiring to
tako this work should confer with
0. R. Richards at once.
A class in Mechanical Engineering
80 (tho heating and ventilation of
buildings, two hours credit) will be
organized by Mr. Elsworth, provid
ing six or more students register for
tho work. Any one desiring to tako
this work should leave his namo with
C. R. Richards as soon as possible.

Tho meeting of the Engineering

The game to he played In tho Ar
mory baturday evening batween the
University bakset ball team and the
city Y. M. C. A. team promises to
bo a very exciting ono. There Is
enough rivalry between tho two
teams to oauso each to put forth
ovory effort to win.
Tho Y. M. O. A. team Is an excep
tionally strong one. Tho men are
practicing on an average of 'three
times a week. Mr. Coats, tho Y. M.
C. A. phyiscal director and a man of
wide oxporlonco in all kinds of ath
letics, is coaching tho men.
This team won tho state champion
ship last year. Tbrco old men are

Dairymen and Stock Breeders Hold
Sessions at tho University
University Men
Two very interesting programs wore
given last night at tho Unlvoristy,
ono in tho old ohapol by tho Nobras
ka Dairymen's Association, the
other in Memorial hall by the Livo
Stook Breeders Association. The
University cadet band favored both
audiences with a fen choice selec
tions of muBic.
The meeting of the dairymen was
doubtless tho most popular us
ndicated by the large attendance of
women who were interested In tho
Chancollor Andrews welcomed the
association to tho Univreslty which
ho said was unusually fortunato In
being able to secure all theso associa
tion meetings. Theso wero oppor
tunities that wero rarely had at
other instltuioos of the country. In
a short address (short because he
believed that the shortness of his
addresses was the reason for his be
ing asked to speak so often) he show
ed tho desirability of pushinc tho
dairy industry in Nebraska which ho
bollcved could mako tho greatest
state in tho union in this industry.
There would always be a market for
good butter as thcro had been from
prehistoric times. Tho way to suc
ceed in this work was to make use of
nature, which, he said, was always
free to give but liked to be asked
with propriety.
Acting Governor Steele, In behalf
of Governor Savago and tho state
welcomed the association of dairy
men. -'
The audience was then favored
with a vocal sojo by tho celebrated
Jules Lombard of Omaha. The very
presence of Mr. Lombard was tho
signal for applause and, ho was oblig
ed to respond with an encore.
The principal address of tho even
ing was thon gien by Mrs. JSertlm
D. Laws of Minnesota, on tho
"American Girl in tho Home." To
her mind the dairv cow is the sub
Ject of more attention and Is better
fed than any other animal in Amer
ica. The farinors gave more atten
tion to the cow valued at fifty dollars
than thoy do to the human help
which Is Invaluable. Tho necessity
of educating the girls to a placo in
a hoffle was tho main theme of her
able address.
No girl, she said, could not bo
considered a real success, no matter
what her accomplishments, who was
unable to mako a home. The tend
ency in America is for parents to edu
cate thoir daughters in overy other
way than for house keeping. Women
are rapidly taking up work formerly
performed by men and aro oolng it
creditably, yet, said Mrs. Law, the
greatest calling on earth for the
Amorlonn girl is tho making or
homo. """
At the mooting of the llvo stooK
breeders association In Memorial
hall addresses wore givon on "The
breeders of pure-bred Btock and the
ranchmen;" "Some legal aspects for
tho trade in pure-bred stook;"
"Hearing ynupg booves for market."
Meetings Will bo held both tho fore
noon and .tho evening. J
