Through a typographical error the
"Daily"' Btated yesterday that tho
Union debating club defeated tho Max
wells in tho debate Saturday night.
The decision was given In favor of the
negative instead of the affirmative.
An editorial appeared in yesterday's
paper concerning the scarcity of room
in the general study room of the uni
versity. It has been suggested that
with the coming of weather when more
indoor work Is done, that the students,
in order to have something to sit down
upon after reaching the library, should
procure for themselves and carry with
them camp stools, which they can
draw up to table corners. They are
not over cumbersome, can always be
along and will save tho state from
increasing library room.
As the time for the Haskell game
draws near, the necessity for perfect
ing the organization of rooters becomes
more apparent The game with the In
dians is no doubt the hardest game
that Nebraska has on her schedule this
year and If rooting can ever be used to
good advantago It can be used next
Saturday. There will bo a mass
meeting of some kind.
A meeting of representatives of all
organizations in school at one of tho
fraternity housesjust as was done last
year would bo a good thing.
As an evidence of the growing pop
ularity of a daily paper it can be stated
that the academy students are now be
coming subscribers of the paper. To
increase the circulation and consequent
Improvement of the Nbbraskan every
student In the university should make
It a point to bo a subscriber. This
Is not a matter of charity, because
the "Dally" doesn't need It, but selfish
reasons to every student. A man has
to know what he Is talking about and
Bhould talk about tho news of the day.
Tho "Dally" will try and help you
In these points. Do not wait to have
tho circulator boo you, but send or
bring your names to the office.
The co-edB of Chicago caused more
or less of a sensation last Saturday.
When tho football game was finished,
with the players covered with mud and
soaking wet, the young lady admirers
of tho team made a sudden descent
on them and in tho general meleo
which resulted therefrom there was a
more or less vivid reenactment of the
"HobBon" demonstration. Reports
show that tho young ladles In emerg
ing from tho struggling mass were as
muddy and bedraggled looking as tho
The mere mention of such among the
Nebraska team would probably send
them Into Bposms and make them whol
ly unfit for further playing. An open
question now Is whether the Chicago
men will survive the treatment they
sustained and play as good football as
up to the present tlmo.
Nebraska had a representative on
tho team, "Deacon" Kochler. His
frletids are waiting to hear from him.
The most Important thing accom
plished in the Freshman class meeting
was the passage of a motion abolishing
in the class of '06, the system of rake
offs that has prevailed throughout the
other classes of the university. On ac
count of a fall-out between different
members of the committee over the
partition of the expected gains, like
a phoenix from a (Ire, arose tho adop
tion of this motion by the class, and it
is a long step toward the purification
of university iolitics. The Freshmen
are fortunate In attempting this re
form early in their college career for
If they had watted until Jhey became
accustomed to the rake-off habit and
allowed their committees to pocket
funds that belong to the class it would
bo a hard thing to stop.
Politics can not be weeded out of
the university, but they should be con
trolled as much as possible. The pres
ent system smacks much ol world poli
tics. In truth the university now is
a first rate training ground for politt
claiiB, but the purpose- of the Univer
sity of Nebraska is to make good citi
zens for the state more than to turn
out every year a certain quota of the
Dr. Moritz Gets Degree.
It is not generally known to (he uni
versity that Dr. Moritz, while spend
ing the greater portion of last year
in touring England, Germany, AiiBtrla,
France and Italy, found tlmo enough
between trains to write a dissertation
and pass the examinations for a doc
tor's degree in Strassburg, Germany.
He is full of praise for that university
and considers Strassburg with its pres
ent faculty, and equipments, a better
place to study mathematics than Goet
tlngon, the former Mecca of American
mathematicians. Dr. Mortiz's disser
tation, which has just appeared in
Goettlngen, Is entitled "Ueber Contlnu
anten und gewlsser Hirer Anwendun
gen 1m Zahlentheoretischen Geblete."
Dr. Mortlz enjoys tho distinction of
having obtained his doctorate In a
shorter time of residence than has
ever been possible in the better Ger

road as draughtsman. Mr. Clinton will
