The Week's Convocations.

Now that tho football Beason Is past
the attention of students will be direct
ed toward basket ball and debate. Both
of these matters are receiving due at
tention from those most Interested In
them, but the latter especially needs
bettor support from the student body.
It Is of prime Importance that the
movement along tho linos of debate In
the university receive as vigorous sup
port as has been given to football
Blnce Nebraska has become prominent
In athletics, because tho university Is
undoubtedly destined to ns great suc
cess In the field of debate as she has
attained on the gridiron.
The sweeping icorles of last year
tend to stimulate Interest in this year's
contests, but tho average student is
not t fully awake to tho real Import
ance of debate and the position that
Nebraska occupies. To create greater
interest is the question that Is now
engaging tho attention of those moBt
interested. Soveral plans have been
proposed. One of tho best suggestions
perhaps, is tho proposition that tho
different classes of the university con
test for championship honors and that
sorno Inducement bo offered to give In
terest to tho contests. Such a tschemo
it Is believed, would Induce a larger
numbor of students to take part In de
bates and would create a general
arousal throughout the entiro institu
tion. The students once made to real
ize the importance and benefits of de
bates, there would bo no question as to
support in the coming inter-state jcon
tests. The Junior and Senior classes have
already made arrangemtna to debate,
butthe contest will not come off until
lato In the semester.

Miss Paxson, secretary Y. W. C. A.,
addressed the studontfl at convocation
hour yesterday. She said In part:
Clod did not create the universe nnd
leave It. Ho takes care of all His
creation. There never was a time when
wo could not see the hand of Qod In
tho affairs of life. It Is a beautiful
thing to look hack over history and
see how God's plan has been unfold
ing. Sometimes Tie has called single per
sons, at other times small hands to
serve as the nucleus to carry out His
work. The Y. W. C. A. are such bands.
The latter Is only about sixteen years
old In this country.
The Y. W. C. A. meets a great need.
With the advent of young women to
our colleges, which has come In com
paratively recent years, there was a
calling for Just tho work this organiza
tion Is doing. It means a good deal for
a young woman to leave home and go
to college to meet an entirely new
environment. Here tho Y. W. C. A.
steps In and helps the student to lead
a Christian life. No other organization
could do this so well.
President Draper says that he does
jnot know what our Bchools would be
without thcBo Christian organizations.
They are Inseparably fixed In our edu
cational system. Faculties unite In
saying that they have better discipline

Is spiritual advancement. A young
