Ex-Chancellor Benton Talks.
Ex-Chancellor Benton addressed tho
students at convocation yesterday.
His remarks were of a reminiscent
nature. Thirty-one years ago. the 7th
of this month. Chancellor Benton be
gan his work as the first chancellor
of the University of Nebraska. Tho
first semester one hundred students
were registered and the one building
was ample for this accommodation.
Like other new institutions the Uni
versity of Nebraska had Its share of
misfortunes. Shortly after Its inaug
uration the state was visited by locusts
which destroyed "almost the entire, veg
etation. Tho year following the peo
ple thought they could not Btand any
additional expense and the university
Beemed doomed. But the men who
had been instrumental in obtaining a
state university were not to be
daunted. They came to Its assistance
and it outlived the storm which threat
ened its downfall
At tho end of Chancellor Benton'B
flrht year of administration the en
rollment numbered 200 and the univer
sity was no longer an experiment
In closing the Chancellor asked the
students If they appreciated what tho
state of Nebraska wua doing for them.
He said the sin of ingratitude was, in
his opinion, worse than all the evils
of the human race.
Amid squals and storms of various
kinds the freshimn ship of state was
launched yeBterday In tho old chapel
during convocation half hour. A few
freshmen and about as many upper
classmen, contended with each other
In creating a disturbance. Finally the
class suceeded In electing Mason
Wheeler temporary chairman.
Mr. Wheeler celebrated his advent
by Bome decisions on the knotty
points of parliamentary rules that
were decidedly original.
He finally suceeded In persuading
Mr. Matheson to take up the onerous
duty of recording the multitude of
motions pouring in from angry con
testants. After this, he was quite calm
amidst confusion and ruled a motion
to adjourn out of order without a
flinch because there was business be
fore the house.
Out of the confusion it could be
gleaned that the most prominent can
didates for president are Mr. Wheeler
and Mr. A. 0. Schrleber. After ap
pointing a email constitutional com
nilteo tho class adourned to meet again
at a later date. An upper classman ex
pressed himself as very much irritated
at the persistance of other upper class
man In creating disturbances.
The Nebraska Wesleyan Athletic as
sociation Is considering tho Idea of or
ganizing a football team this fall. They
have been down watching U. of N.
