The following Is the program for convocation hour for the ensuing week: Thursday Dr. Jones, the British edu cational bill. 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. President Hadloy of Yale recently defeated tho varsity crack at tennis. Iss Paxson at Chapel. 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 slnco tho Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. entered the schools. Their chief aim Is spiritual advancement. A young man or woman who leaves college with a big head and small soul Is not truly educated. College Settlement.
