About 7 o'clock the members seated
themselves to the long tables, which
had been tastily decorated and ar
ranged in the armory. The persons
present were a thoroughly representa
tive crowd of university people. The
banqueters were all in a happy mood,
singing together a number of familiar
songs and giving the university yell
at no distant intervals. The Y. M. C.
A. glee club favored the crowd with a
number of its best selections, which
wore well received.

C. O. WHEDON SPEAKS ON
Chapel exercises Tuesday morning
were conducted by Rev. W. C. Wil
liams, after which Chancellor An
drews Introduced Hon. C. O. Whedon
of this city, who spoke on- "Needed
In introducing his subject Mr. Whe
don mentioned the fact that during re
cent years anarchists from all parts of
the world have takon advantage of pre
vailing circumstances and have made
a city of the United States their headr
quarters. Anarchy Is antipathetic, and
the opposite of all government on the
part of the state.
Mr. Whedon spent most of the short
time alloted him in discussing the
principles of the most prominent an
archists of the time. Right, they be
lieve to be the power of might, and
laws are not to be obeyed unless they
appeal to the anarchist in the way in
which he believes to be right.
The Nebraskan announces that temporarily issues will be published
only three days In the week. This course is made necessary because of
lack of support on the part of advertisers, principally. The large firms,
whose patronage of college publications heretofore has been generous,
have this year been represented among tne advertisers either not at all or
very little. Tne subscription patronage has been, on the whole, good.
However, nearly one-half of those who have been receiving the paper reg
ularly have failed as yet to pay their subscription bills. These facts have
determined the board of directors upon the course here announced. It Is
possible that daily issues will be soon resumed. Such issues will be re
sumed as soon as tho support received from advertisers and subscribers
will justify It. For the present there will be Issues on Mondays, Wednes
days and Fridays. THE HESPERIAN PUBLISHING CO.

Anarchism is an egotistical right,
and help can only come to the masses
through egotlBm. It Is one of tho moqt
essential facts that the poor will al
ways wish to have more, and It is not
money that does the harm, but lack
of power to take It.
A prevailing system of anarchy, says
Mr. Whedon, means the complete abo
lition of classes. The liberty of man
consists in that he obeys the laws of
nature, and a change in our present
system of government could only end
in a civil war.
The anarchiBts of today do not op
pose organized society, but socloty as
now organized, and believe in (1) the
liberation of the producer, (2) tho free
dom Of. tVe government, and (3) libera
tion from religion. They act on the
principle of Do what pleases jrou, and
act as you think best.
Human experience, said Mr. Whedon,
teaches that those who commit crime
are those who have thrown off the
fetters of custom.
The hopeful side of the situation is
that moral degenerates are the excep
tion and not the rule. Under the
teachings of Christ humanity has ad
vanced. Everything belongs to all,
and anyone can take what he can.
