The attendance has been very good.
Not only have- the ndulta taken ad

talks will be given by F. M. Hall. Miss
Hayden, Dr. Fling, Miss Walsh, Pro
fessor Barbour and Professor Hodg-
Miss Hayden spoko entertainingly
. last evening at the art exhibit. She
first took up the question, "How the
artist conceives his subject" She
rioted tho difference between great and
inferior pieces of work. She Illus
trated the point by reference to the
work of Milet, tho great French art-'
1st He was not so strong In coloring
and drawing as in showing humanity
overcoming the soil.
One man may bo superior In tech
nique and yet not be able to paint a
great picture.
She mentioned Chas. Warren
Eaton's "A Bruges Canal," and spoko
of' tho skilful manner In which tho
artist realized the'same light through
out tho picture. The speaker compli

of Its remarkable lines and color.

Georgetown University Desires to
Meet Nebraska In Debate
Other Debates. "
The Debating Board Is in receipt of
another challenge for debate from tho
Georgetown University School of LaW,
Washington, D. C. Last fall a chal
lenge waB received from thlB Institu
tion, but for financial roasons Nebras
ka replied that the proposition could
not be considered.
Tho challenge now at hand strongly
urges Nebraska to accept and Is in the
nature of a compliment to Nobrnskn,
whose fame in debate last year- has
apparently reached the eastern col
leges. Recently the Georgetown Uni
versity thrashed Wisconsin and the
latter Is asking for another opportuni
ty to show hor prowess. Georgetown,
however, refuses to accept Wisconsin's
challenge until It Is certain that a de
bate can not be arranged with Ne
braska. She "would like to debate
Nebraska because of her reputation."
The society decided. to put the ex
hibit of flowers and fruit next year on
O street instead of at the university.
The object of UiIb move was to place
the fruits where larger crowds could
see them.
Tho first biennial jreport of tho Ne
braska Public Library Commission, of
which Mr. J. J. Wyer is president, has
just been published. Tho law creat
ing this commission wferit Into effect
Juno 28, 1901, and active work was be
gun the "following Novomher. This
report gives a brief summary of the
rjv fission's work, Its purpose, and
."' nendix containing . a list of Ne
ttie Colleie Song
In answer to soveral inquiries con
cerning tho prize offer for the best
college Bong, we will say that "some
gentlemen connected with the Faculty
offer a prize of ?100 to the student
or graduate of the University of Ne
braska who will write an original
University of Nebraska song, which a
committee shall agree to be of suf
ficiently high merit to deserve such a
Dean Sherman and Professor Fossler
will act on the committee and they
will select a third member to act with
them.- Mbre detailed conditions will
be announced In Tho Dally Nebraskan.
Tho offer holds good until May 10,
1903. All manuscript must be handed
to Dean Sherman on or before that
Nebraska is urged to send a speedy
reply In order that "negotiations al
ready entered Into with other colleges
can be broken off," providing tho Ne-bruska-Georgetown
debate 1b arranged.
The Debating Board has the matter
under advisement. Some members are
In favor of accepting the challenge'',
others are of the opinion that It would
be better for Nebraska to meet univer
sities of the middle west. The Board
has written Georgetown for specific
terraB as to tho time of holding a de
bate and as to the financial aspect of
the matter. It is possible that the
two institutions may meet In debate
this spring.
Tho Georgetown Law School ranks
high In the debating world, being in
the class with Columbia and Pennsyl
vania. A large majority of her stu-.
dents are college graduates.
Missouri has chosen tho negative
side of the question as to the Inimical
influence of trusts.

Mrs. SawyerSpeaks .
Mrs. Sawyer, of this city, gavo an in
teresting talk vesterdav mornlnc at
convocation on tho "Life and Charac
ter of' Susan B. Anthony."
This woman, said Mrs. 8awyer, has
won & place In the minds of posterity
that will alwayB enduro. Her great
ness is contained In the great good
-tfiat she was able to do for others. In
almost overythlng she can bo hold up
as an Ideal. Her greatest ambition
was to do good and to show other
women that In many Instances their
rights are Infringed upon by man. Sho
taught women that theywere slaves
through choice, largely;" that In most
cases they forged tho chains that
bound them In servitude. Sho hold
out to woman the fact that tho great
sceptre of responsibility was to be
placed in her hands if the affairs of
the world were to be conducted as thoy
should be.
Mrs. Sawyer said that while oppor
tunity counted for something, useful
ness counts for more. It will do us,
but little good to learn the problems of
life If we can not apply our knowl
edge bo as to make the world hotter.
In all these respects Suskn B. An
thony's life was a success, it being ono
of true service to others.
Mrs. Sawyer Is (i very able and In
teresting speaker and holds the atten
tion of her audience as few can.
