Small Chance to Prolit by thfc
Rhodes Scholarships.
lfilercstin Papers Presented at Saturday
EvcnlBg'S Session.
The graduate clUb toot at the Col
lego club settlement house, on 20th and
N streets, Saturday night, and enjoyed
ah extra good programme. The Inter
esting features were two papers by
t)r. Kuhlraann and C. W. Wallace oil
"Lamprecht's Historical Method," and
"The Rhodes Scholarships." Mrs. Chas.
Hagchow played a selection from,
Strauss, which was well xocoived. Af
ter the programme was completed, the
entire club sang college songs and en
tered Into considerable old time enthu
siasm. Dr. Kuhlmanh, in his discussion of
Ijimprecht's historical etftbd, Bald
that it includes under history all sUch
subjects as sociology and political sci
ence, which Lamprecht considers the
vfconBtant element in the Solution of
fjocety. The establishment of Lam
frecht's method practically and theo
retically denies the separation of siicfo
subjects and places them all In the
category with hlBtory. It is a common
and a wrong idea that Lamprecht tries
to establish metaphysical laws. He
makes the same generalizations that
historians Usually make1 df ail' tho so
cial sciences, If Lamprecht is "to bo
attacked at all It is riot Upon a wrong
method, but nlontr the line of a oradtl-
cal subdivision of labor The position
of Lamprecht, represents the reaction
of historians ' against the ' encroach
mentof other social Bclerices, on the
field of history. - '
In the absence of Mr Wallace, A.
- E. Sliotaott read the1 paper tin the
Rhodes scholarships. In substance, it
was as1 foilow's: No will since; Caesar's
2ptolves mdrd interests and has tnbre
Tar-reaching designs than that of Cecil
Rhodes, It provides for the dlstrlpu
tion of approximately 25,000,000
among the Teutbnlc nations in the
form of scholarships at Oxford. t Each
state of the union receives two of
these scholarships, each of which
amounts to a sum of $1,600 annually.
The matter that haB been discussed
most widely refers to the class of stu
dents that will bo eligible and what
will bo the methods of appointment.
It is commonly supposed that univer
sity students would recelvo those ap
pointments, but evidently Mr. Rhodes'
Intention was to draw from othor
countries two hundred young men who
would bo on an equality, in every way,
with those students who enter Oxford
from English institutions. The nuaii-
flcatlons are scholarship, fondness for
sport, manhood and moral force. Tho
first and last points are determined by
school authorities and count for a to
tal of six-tenths. The remaining two
points are determined by school fel
Iowb and count for four-tenths. Tho
final average shall bo passed upon by
the trustees or some one appointed for
the purpose.
The fact that high schools do not us
ually give a cburso in Greek practically
shuts out high school students, for
Greek is one of tho requirements for
admission to Oxford. University stu
dents are aa a rule barred by the pro
vision that scholarships shall be
granted only to those' under twenty
one years of age. This seems to leave
tho benefits of the will to the small
Tho question thnt concerns us ia
with reference to the effect the Cecil
Rhodes scholarships will have on
higher learning. What Influence will
they have on our men who go to Ger
many for advanced degrees? Will it
call them to England? Will it take
graduates" or undergraduates from our
own institutions?
These questions, and especially the
last, were discussed by the graduate
club. Ib Hill advanced the idea that
students would go to Oxford from our
universities in spite of the adverse pro
visions of the will. He said that there
are always a few students who make
college before they have attained
their majority and such wjll have bet
ter preparation to meet the require
ments than have students from either
the small colleges or secondary schools.
Such has been the cose In Canada
- .f
where scholarships to English instltu
tlons are given.
Chancellor Andrews Latest One
to Receive a Challenge.
Although tho news has been known
to tho town people for a week or bo
that Chancellor Andrews' recent ad
dress on Socialism had brought him a
challongo to debate from tho over
ready 'millionaire socialist," H. Gay
lord Wilshire, University students
may still find the following letter of
readablo Interest. It Is addressed to
tho chancellor, and was printed in a
recent number of tho Nebraska Inde
pendent: NeW York, Jan. 29, 1903.
Chancellor E. Benjamin Andrews, Ne
braska University, Lincoln, Neb.
Dear Sir: I have read with interest
your address on socialism delivered be
fore the state bar association of Ne
braska on January 9. As you have
misrepresented the socialist nnauinn
so completely I think It Is only fair
for you to meet me or some other Bd
clallBt on tho public platform and de
fend your arraignment of Socialism,
which I contond Is based upon a fal
lacy. I will agree to go from New
York to Nebraska at my own expense,
hire any ball yoU may think suitable
and pay all the expenses connected
with the debate, If you will agree to
meet me any tifate within the next two
months, t shall be lndobted to you If
you will wire your answer upon re
ceipt of this. Faithfully yours.
Chancellor Andrews does not expect
to avail himself of tho opportunity for
public discussion, and remarks that
aside from some little modification of
his outline of tho Marxian theory he
thinks the address referred to
will do for a fair expression of
his views Upon the subject of socialism.

The Sunday afternoon Y. W. C. A.
meetine was devoted to a. nrpRAntntlnn
of a desirability of a svstematin nhirlv

Interesting and convincing argument
for a wider acquaintance with tho
Bible, not only as literature, but as the
word of God. Miss Griffin favored the
meeting with & vocal solo. These Sun

in interest and attendance, and will
amply repay any young woman for the
time taken to attend them.
