The university has had a most un
eventful life as far as appropriations
for educational purposes are concerned.
The legislators from some parts of the ,
state have been sadly nonconversant
with tho university. Its life and what
it needs. It may with reason be hoped
thut the university may be more fortu
nate this year than at times in the past.
The readers of this paper will readily
see that It Is not and can not possibly
be a partisan paper in any sense of
the word. Any matter which is pub
lished Is not for the purpose of satis
fying any particular desires of the
management. Neither can anything in
any sense be construed as for political
policy. It is entirely through dlsin
teredness that any matter of a political
nature finds It way Into the pages of
this publication. This statement Is
made to sufllce for all time, and as long
as the present management has any
thing to do with the inibllshlng of the
paper. No one, then, can with any de
gree of reason, construe any news pub
lished as satisfying definite partisan
The trains leaving Lincoln since last
Saturday have almost all had students
aboard who were going home to vote.
A large number have taken the chance
to spend a few extra hours at home.
While the men have gone home to cast
a ballot, the few extra days of vaca
tion are sought otherwise. There Is
something commendable when a stu
dent will leave his work, and pay his
own passage to have the right to cast
There is probably no class of people
In the commonwealth who are more
Interested In the present campaign and
vitally so, as the students of the uni
versity. The administration of tho
state concerns moBt Intimately the uni
versity and much of the welfare of this
great educational center depends on
the men who are elected to carry on
the affairs of state.
The following is a criticism of ama
teur reporters by a reader In the Eng
"The other day a reporter for the
'Dally" came Into the English office,
and asked In a gentlemanly way for
some news. I looked out of the window
It was a back window at that and
gave him two or three snappy things
as fast as I could translate them into
presentable English. He took them
down half doubtfully, and went off
slowly, as though pondering on the
suddenness of the transaction.
"The trouble with these amateur re
porters seems to be that they have not
the ability to pick up a clean, fresh
scent If the figure is not offensive.
They are willing enough and trot duti
fully in search of news, but they expect
the teachers and their fellow students
to give them material ready-made, and
will not use their own eyes. The afore
mentioned reporter could have looked
out of the window and seen what I
saw; but he simply did not realize that
the apparently tilvial matters going
on under his eyes needed only a skil-
! full 'write-up' to become an interesting
1 bit of news,"
The Minnesota Daily quotes the law
to those who mutilate the books or
other library property:
"There is no doubt that a number of
times before have magazines and books
been mutilated and stolen, and al
though the offenders have not been
caught in tho act, yet persons inclined
to take advantage of the faith placed
in them by the librarians know from
this time on what risk they are run
ning if they destroy the property of
the state. It may not be generally
known what penalty Is provided by law
so as a hint to the wise we publish the
following, which is the state law cov
ering Biich eases:
" 'A person who mlllciously cuts,
tears, defaces, disfigures, soils, oblit
erates, breaks or destroys, a book, map,
chart, model, apparatus, specimen or
other work of literature, or object of
art or curiosity, deposited In a public
library, gallery, museum, collection,
fair or exhibition is punishable by Im
prisonment in the state prison for not
more than three years, or in a county
jail for not more than one year, or by
a fine of not more than $55 or by both
such fine and Imprisonment.' "

An Englishman Common t on Humorous
AdvortUlns: In Thli Country.
Said an Englishman at the Bates
House, Indianapolis: "This is my fifth
visit to the United States. I am bo
ginning, aa you say over here, to
'catch on' to tho spirit of American
humor. It Is of a broader character
than we are accustomed to In England.
You have a way of exaggerating In
cidents, trivial In themselves, that wo
English cannot understand. It crops
out everywhere. In my country the ad
vertising is dignified and common
place. Over hero much of It is of tho
raciest humor. Some tlmo ago. In a
Western city, I saw a large plcturo
painted in bright colors on a billboard.
It represented a bald-headed man to
whom an Indian In war paint was of
fering a scalp of long, flowing hair. It
advertised a hair restorer. The othor
day, walking down South Meridian
street with an acquaintance, I saw a
lithograph In a window advertising
some kind of a cigarette. The picture
represented a gigantic cowboy, cigar
ette In mouth, who had grabbed a cig
arette dude and, lifting him high abovo
tho ground, was helping himself to a
light. In Chicago a few days ago, I
saw a sign that read. 'Fearless Buttor
Company.' Nothing but oleomargarlno
was sold in the place, and tho humor
of tho Blgn struck mo mightily. Wo
have none of that kind of advertising
