CLASS ORATOR CHOSEN
One of a Number Suggested by
Chancellor Andrews Is a
Graduate of Rochester
The senior committee appointed to
secure a class orator for commence
ment haa made final arrangements
with Rev. R. S. MacArthvir of New
York city. Rev. MacArthur was the
sixth or seventh man on the list that
the committee made out and submitted
to the class. He was placed on the
list at the suggestion of Chanrellor An
drews, who added several names to the
The senior; class is to be congratu
lated on Its good fortune in securing
an orator and lecturer of such promi
nence. R. S. MacArthur is known as
ono of the very beBt orators in the east
and, although he has not been west,
his fame has reached the shores of the
Pacific. He has. been pastor of Cal
vary Baptist church of New York city
since 1870. Besides being a noted ora
tor and lecturer, he has gained dis
tinction as an author and editor. For
many years he has been connected with
the Chicago Standard and the Chris
Rev. MacArthur was born at Quebec
in 184 1, was graduated from the Ro
chester University In 18G7, took his
doctor's degree from the same insti
tnnr, in isn nrul received his L. L.
D. from Columbia In 189G. He was
graduated from the Rochester Theolog
ical Seminary In 1870 and entered upon
his duties as pastor of the Calvary
church In the same year, which posi
tion he has since held.
As an author R. S. MacArthur has
gained v wide reputation and has pub
lished a list of small broke. Among
them are: Calvary Pulpit; Divine
Bulustrades; The Attractive Christ
and Other Sermons; Quick Truths in
Quaint Texts; Current Questions for
Living Men; On Bible Difficulties;
Lectures on the Lanu and the Book.
Supporters of athletics In the univer
sity should make an unusual effort to
be present at the Haskell game Satur
day night. A large crowd Is needed,
not only to aid the management in
financial matters, but also to help the
tram win the game.
Manager Hlltnor has scheduled a
game with the Indians at considerable
expense, and unless the students of the
university manifest more enthusiasm
than was evident at the last game the
funds will not be forthcoming.
Of more importance, however, Is the
matter of support duo to the team.
Nebraska has turned out a winning
team in baseball and football, and
there is no reason why she should not
do the same in basket-ball. We have
plenty of good material, and under the
control of a competent coach there Is
every chance of development on the
part of the men. Tn the matter of old
men the team is at a disadvantage.
Only one of last year's team, Captain
Hewitt, is in school this year, but the
rest of the team are experienced men,
and know the game. Hewitt, Hoar.
Elliott. Hiltner and Ferguson lined up
against the Y. M. C. A. and the line
up will in all probability be the same
It is the same old story of necessary
support that has been harped upon so
long that by this time every person
In the university should be thoroughly
acquainted with tho importance of hiB
individual efforts to mako the game a
success. Basket-ball Is not as exciting
as football, nor does it possess the
same attraction as baseball, especially
when baseball serves as a good excuse
for not studying on spring afternoons,
and for that reason perhaps it has not
met with the same support that has
greeted the other games. However,
those who would enjoy an hour of ac
tive sport will not make a mistake by
attending the game Saturday night.
Come out and help show our friends
the Indians that we are proficient in
basket-ball as well as in football.
Nebraska Will Have the Negative
About Thirty Men Have
Registered for the Pre-
Miss Hayden Speaks
Convocation period was occupied
yesterday morning by Miss Hayden,
who gave an Interesting talk on art
ard tho art exhibition.
Tho speaker aald that art was not
for artists alone, but that Us study
develops a very important Bide of overy
Individual's life. The reason we see
but little beauty In many really won
derful works of art, and often- of na
ture as well, Is that wo have not been
trained and taught to appreciate things.
In order to get much qut of a picture
we must study tho artist's Intention.
A study of art enables ua to appre
ciate nature more. Everyone can learn
to understand art, and bad art will
give way to a much higher quality as
soon as more of us study it and learn
more about It.
Palladians to Spel! Down
After a short program to bo present
ed by Misses Colwell and Gibson and
T. M. Hewitt next Friday night, the
Palladians will turn the meeting into
an old-fashioned spelling school. Miss
Payne will act as teacher and conduct
the spell-down. Prizes will be given
to tho winners. This will afford an
unusual opportunity for a good time
and all Pals should be present.

braska will have the negative. This
was decided by lot on Saturday by
President R. H. Jesse, of the Univer

The Kansas-Nebraska question Is as
follows, suggested by Kansas: "Re
solved, That as a general princlplo the
continuous operation of public service
industries in the United States should
be insured by legislation compelling
the arbitration of disputes between the
companies and their employes."
The negotiations on the part of the
Kansas Debating league were conduct
ed with tho business-like dispatch
which marked last year's pleasant re
lations between the institutions. To
the visit to Lawrence Nebraska Is look
ing forward with decided pleasure.
Tho Kansas men who were hero in
Nebraska assured the Nebraska team
of a hearty welcome. Tho question
is particularly timely and Is regarded
as perfectly fair.

tions on the interstate teams closed
Saturday night with W. F. Meier, sec
retary of the debating association.
Though larger than it was last year,
the list of candidates does not contain,
as It used to do, students who have no
chance whatever of getting on the
