HERMAN STUDENT CELEBRA
TION. An Interesting account of student
lii'u in Germim universities, written
by Miss Leo Loomis, a former stu.
dent of the university nnd at present
studying in Europo, appeared recently
in the Fremont H lull School Specta
tor. Miss Loomis gives the foil owing ac
count or a "knmnioroc." In response
to invitations to a student "Koni
incrce,' we took our places with other
ladles In a balcony, which surround
ed a Iiuiro ball Moor. The hall, in
whlto and gold was decorated with
every imaginable design in Hags,
helmets, swords, banners and laurels.
The bust of Kaiser Wlinelm, draped
In Prussian colors, faced I lie audience
from tho stage, outlined by a back
ground of palms. The music henan
to awaken old fraternity m us which
made the heart wild with patriot
ism. Hem-nth were six long tables
hemmed by chairs. Suddenly from
sevoral doorways appealed six uni
formed waiters, each carrying two
swords draped In colors. The swords
were laid at each table, and a sea of
uniforms appeared to roll Into the
room. The uontlemen were seated.
The lloor seemed converted Into a
rainbow. Hero the bright red uni
forms, hero tho orange and black,
iioro yellow ana blue, there green and
black, blue and white, violet and
crimson. Tho alters brought
basket after baskot of (lowers, pre
sented by tho admiring sex which Is,
in (lormany. excluded from the gran
deur of fraternity life. Wo In
America might say, "If we can't bo
in It, thoy won't recolvo any llowers
from us," but that Isn't tho Gorman
nature. Man great, stalwart,
powerful, saber-cut man, is tho Ideal
Hut tho "Kommorce" continued.
Klrst Ono fratornlty was "proas tod,"
(toasted,) then another. They paid
respect to six frats, tho ladles, the
Kaiser, tho school. Germany, Hanover
lovo, brotherly union, succoss, the
militia, tho crown prince, the otlicers
of each frat. tho progross of mankind,
bravory, manhood, tho pledges tho now
inombors and the alumni. Those
who weren't very oxporlonced In the
business began to wonder whon it
would end. At twelve o'clock tho
music became sorious. Thegontlomon
at the tables' head, each grasped a
sword in his loft hnnd and his part
ner's hand In tho right. Words wore
sung to tho effect that as long as thoy
lived thev would remain truo brothors,
each doffed his cap and thrusting the
swoid through it, passed tho Jnstru-
- moot to his neighbor. At last oaoh
tablo hold two swords thrust through
some fifty caps and thoio is a plodRO
and tho ladles leave for homo. To bo
sure tho ladles often carry a cap homo
for ff-trophv-,-but-ooona -knows.-iiow.
it Is obtained.

We have looked over with somo care and growing pleasure a little
volume of verse, by Will Reed Dunroy, issued by the University Pub
lishing C"., entitled "rumble Weeds." We find Mr. Dnnroy an inter
estmg person. He un-'ertakes large things, and approaches thotn in a
largH way. He aims evidently for nothiog short of the highest work.
It will be furious to see what a young man with this ambition can
achieve. Mr. Dunroy Feems to be distinctly a western man ono of
those who nre quite content with their own environment, as a sphere
for action and growth His themes are things that exist, and that he
can see around himself; it is men who'cau take this view, it seems to
us, who are going to count on the future of our wo iterft civilization.
One little poem on "Dawn" attracted us p irticularly, and another on
Sergeant Floyd. We wondered a little at Mr. Dunroy's baring thought
it necepsury to put a pretty little thing about Nebraska- into apostro
phe's dialect. A peculiarity that struck us wab a strain of devoutness
that runs through some of the poems, together, with some tonons of
displeasure with the church organizations.
