Capt. Pershing Donates Relic o!
the Philippine War.
MUST REMAIN ON THE CAMPUS
Pershteg Miles will Mount and Formally
Present it to the University.
Capt John J. Pershing, of the Fif
teenth United States cavalry, now
Borvlng In tho Philippines, has sent to
the University a cannon to be present
ed to the Pershing Rifles, with the
understanding that it shall always re
main ov the campus and bo the prop
erty of ho University.
Tho cannon was captured in Janu
ary, 1901, in the campaign of North
ern Mindanoa, against" IHllpino in
surgents under Captain Caplstra'no.
The captors were under tho command
of Gfitt. William A. -Kobbe. Captain
Pershlrig was adjutant general on .Gen
eral Kobbe's staff at that t(me.
In mafce and design the cannon is
similar to the one which was mounted
near the Library building three years
ago, but It is much smaller. It is about
three feet in length, with a 4-lnch
bore and wefghs about 400 pounds.
Like most o'f tho Spanish guns cap
tured in Cuba and tho Philippines, it
is very ola foshlorifcd. Tho Pershing
Rifles propose to .mount this piece of
ordnance aa soon as they can raise tho
Captain Pershing "was commandant
at tho University four years (1891
1895). 'During that time he did much
to raise the offlcionoy pt tho military
department and his good work is re
membered by members of the faculty
as well as by former Btudents, Since
that time ho has covered himself with
glory In performing hi? duties as a
soldier. Captain Pershing has always
taken a great Interest In this institu
tion and in his letter presenting the
cannon he sayB: "I shall over treasure
pleasant momorles of my scrvlco at the
University of Nebraska, and Bhall al
ways take a deep interest in very
thing that pertains to her welfare."

The Kansas University basket ball
team met its second defeat In Lincoln
Monday night, at tho hands of the city
Y. M. C. A., In tho association gym
nasium. The Christians won handily
by a score of 32 to 21. Saturday night
Nebraska dofeated Kansas in the Uni
armory to tho tuno of 28 to 18, and
the Jayhawkers attributed the outcome
to the fact that they were in poor
physical condition. They claimed thoy
"had ridden on the train for some -nine,
hours straight and had gone into the
game without any supper. Tho mon
desired to retrieve themselves, but re
mained over only to lose another game.
Tho Kansas team was weakened
Monday night, however, by the loss of
Capt. J. Alford. through Illness. Be
sides, the Y. M. C. A. field Is very
small and any strange team is handi
capped when playing upon it.
Kansas made a desperate effort to
win, but to no avail and their oppo
nents led throughout tho game. The
play was fast and snappy on both
sides and the first half ended 21 to
18 In favor of the Y. M. C. A.
Kansas braced in tho second half and
kept the ball bounding from their
screen for throe minutes straight, but
oven D. Alford, who had thrown four
goals In the first half, was unable to
find tho basket. The Y. M. C. A. se
cured possession of the ball and Cap
tain Hammel threw three goals. Ha
gonslck added fivo points from the
foul line and KansaB made only three
points in the second half and they
were on fouls.
For Kansas D. Alford threw four
goals, Allen two and Wherry two and
Ave fouls. For the Y. M. C. A., Ha
genslck three three goals and twelve
straight fouls, Hammel threw six goals
and Quthlng one. Hewitt, Benedict
and Ferguson officiated.
The Kansas team played Omaha Y.
M, C. A. last night and will play High
land Park Wednesday, Des Moines Y.

"Of course I don't approvo of stu
dents marking up the library books,"
confided a liberal user of tho library
shelves to a visitor, "and I always put
my foot athletically down upon nny
budding gonitis I may happon to catch
at such a task. Nevertheless, I occa
sionally run across something that al
most makes mo wish I wero conscien
tiously ablo to lndnlgo In a smllo of
appreciation. For instance, take this
llttlo satire from the margin of one of
tho AnnalB of Congress: 'Some people
aro born smarter than others. Tho
unfortunato qpes are very thankful to
their gifted brothers for marking all
important passages' Really, It's quite
a question where humor leaves off and
A Freshman rises to remark: "I
have spent more time this year In
learning rto doHFthir Romans tIo than
I have on my studies. I camo here
Com a small acadomy, where tho halls
stood on a par with the sidewalks as
to manners. It took mo nearly a week
here to discover why peoplo smiled at
gallery or else glvo us tickets entitling
us to one hour's use of a library chair
each day. Tho present method will bo
tho ruin of my moral constitution
nnd my physical ono, too, If somo
wrathy chalrlcss ono happens upon mo
at an lnopportuno moment somo day."
A snowstorm Is perhaps a peculiar
way of rovoallng tho stato of student
prosperity, but It is a pretty fair one.
A few years ago there was moro sup
ply than demand of student labor for
cleaning off walks after a snowstorm.
This year thoro has been considerable
difficulty In securing enough help for
such work. ThoBo who used to make
their money In this manner aro now
engaged in more profitable and con
siderably pleasantor lines of work, and
the snow shoveling jobs go bogging.
It will be interesting to discover, when
a period of hardor times comes along,
whether this abandonment of the
harder lines of manual labor la a per
manent condition or meroly ono of tho
phenomena of J,good times."
"There's one advantage a student

Senior caps and gowns wero ached
uled to make their appearance this
week, but yesterday's weather rather
discouraged tho donning of any extra
or ornamental apparel. As tho
weather bureau promised "fair" for
today, somq of tho braver ones may
perhaps be encouraged to venture out
pretty well loarned, I had occasion to
visit Wesleyan. As soon as I got in
side Uie door I yanked off my hat but
only to meet with that compassionate
smile peoplo always bestow upon the
exposed greenhorn. Thus I learned
4.hat at Wesleyan they don't remove
their hats in the halls. Next week I
am expecting to visit Union College.
Can you toll me what their custom is
there?" The reporter was unable to
do so, not having been there himself.
"It Is just about as bad down town,"
resumed the youth by customs afflicted.
"I took off my hat In one of tho big
store elevators when ladies were pres
ent, and met such a derisive grin from
tho youthful Solomon In charge that I
never had the courage to go back.
Next place I kept my hat on; and was
promptly Bcolded by one of my most
valued feminine friends for my 'lack
of courtesy.' Oh, yes; r am learning.
But It is a painful process for a sensi
tive youth frosh in from tho back
woods. If you can refer me -to any
one who cau post me on the proper
thing to do on all occasions, I will bo
your everlasting friend, sure."
"I declare, I don't know what I'll
do' announcod a discouraged student
just before the end of last semester,
"I have to act like a sneak-thief to'
get a seat In th'o library these days.
Monday I took possession of a 'turned,
up' chair after it had been vacant for
ton minutes at least, and fivo minutes
afterwards I was asked to 'pleaso glye
It up.' , Today I swiped the 'please
don't remove' chair from the table in
the stack room, but 1 couldn't sit
around all day just to bold it down,
and. when J tried to steal it asecond
time I was caught" red-handed. I'm
afraid they'll have to put in a. library
feelings of a plutocrat when I sit In
my comfortable room and watch tho
soulless absorber of my monthly rent
laboring manfully with a two-foot drift
on his front walk. YeB, there aro some
compensations in 'rooming,' after all."
