The Dally Ncbraskan appears after
a Bummer's silence for the new school
year, and with the best prospects of
success since, the beginning of newspa

Dally has had one year's trial and
found to be necessary to the life of
the school. With the co-operation of
faculty and students it can be made
a very useful Instrument at the uni

The mere fact that the leaders in
Nebraska football are talking only
carefully and quietly ought to fill foot
ball enthusiasts with more of a de
teimlnatlon to make the team of 1902
one of the teams with a record in the
history of Nebraska athletics. It Is
the best thing not to be too enthusias

in, there 1b some certainty of actual
It will be observed that the office
of the Ncbraskan has been removed
from downtown quarters to the univer

and will be more closely indentifled

"The Dally Nebraskan" Is a medium of
notices and bulletins of the university.
Us columns are always open to all fac

Every ten years the census reports
Clve the number of persons able to
read and write In any language. These
figures throw light upon the extent to
which the rudiments of educatioriarc
being acquired and also upon the work
ing of school systems. A large amount
of Illiteracy among adults Indicates
that they were reared under an imper
fect system oft schools. But neither il
literacy among emigrants nor illiter
acy among elder natives of the coun
try is any index of the present condi
tion of American schools.
Probably the most light upon the
working of a school system is shown
by the per4 cent of children between
ten and fourteen years of age who are
able to read and write. The statement
prepared at the census office shows the
percentage of persons in the several
states between the ages of ten and
fourteen years who were reported as
able to read and write in 1900.
Nebraska enjoys the distinction of
heading the list, closely pressed by
Iowa, and Illinois is fifteenth, below
nearly all the other western and north
ern states. In 1890 Iowa headed the
list, with a percentage of 99.23, Illinois
being then Blxth, with a percentage of
only 98. 75.
In every state and territory, except
Arizona and Nevada, the percentage
of children ten to fourteen years of
age able to read and write has mate
rially increased during the last decade,
Indicating, therefore, an Improvement
in the efficiency in Mie school system.
Even the two exceptions named are
more apparent than real.
