UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA, LINCOLN, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY S7, J903.
A SUCCESSFUL DAY
Mid-Winter Commencement Ex
ercises Go oil Smoothly.
Tho mld-wlnter commencement of
the University occurred yesterday with
tho usual manifestations of Interest.
The entire Institution was thrown
open to the public and exhibits were
"held In the various laboratories, show
ing visitors the character of work as
-well as the facilities used by tho stu
donts In their Investigations. The ex
hibits of tho zoological, botanical, geo
logical and engineering department
were especially well arranged. Stu
dents were stationed at convenient In
tervals to explain the working of ma
chinery and the object and results of
Perhaps tho most Btrlklng feature of
the day's program was tho presenta
tion of the Pershing cannon to tho
Pershing Rifles. " At 2 o'clock the
artillery fired a salute to Governor
Mickey, who at that moment arrived
to take part in tho exercises. The
University cannon had been stationed
on the front campuB and continued to
boom for a quarter of an hour after
tho program began. The Pershing
cannon was presented to the company
by Chancellor Andrews. In a short
und effective address the chancellor
commended tho cojnpany on its good
appearand and sain thjot Buch con
panies as the Persuing Rifles provided
the verr best defondo. for tho country,
and If trouble Wore tfver to occur they
would be the ilrst to be called upon.
Tho Porshlng cannon, he said, was
only a reminder of what had been and
would never bo used again.
Governor Mickey was called upon
and spoko briefly to the Pershing
Rifled. Ho agreed With tho chancellor
that such companies are a good safe
guard, commented the men on the high
Btandard of their drilling -nnd paid a
worthy tribute to the national guards.
Ho said ho hoped to make the militia
of the state much more efficient than
It had been, through the law now in
congress providing for a strengthening
of the national guards.
After tho Pershing Rifles gave an
exhibition of drill tho crowd wfts en-
tertalned by tho cadet band and tho
annual indoor athletic contest.
Because of a lack of advertising patronage, The to
4 Daily Nebraskan is today temporarily suspended. If to
you will glance over the ads appearing in today's
T issue you will discover those business firms of Lincoln If
who sufficiently appreciate the patronage of the Uni- j f
Y versity to stand back of tke college paper. Of the to
$ others, note the following facts:
Lincoln has six largo dry goodB stores, deriving from University
trade approximately $75,000 a year. Outsjde of Miliar & Palne's
liberal patronage, Tho Nobraskan has carried less than $10 worth of
advertising for theso six large stores this year.
Lincoln has four large clothing houses, receiving approximately
$35,000 worth of student trade yearly. From them Tho Nebraskan
has received a llttlo over $50 worth of advertising in five months,
Lincoln has six large tailoring establishments, patronized by tho
young men of the University to tho extent of $10,000 yearly. Two of
them have invested in The Nebraskan this year a total of $25 worth
of advertising; the others, nothing.
Lincoln has five laundries, deriving from University trado $10,000
yearly; one laundry runs a one-Inch card In Tho Nebraskan.
Lincoln has Ave millinery shops, patronized by the young women
of the University ovAr C' 000 worth annually. Thoy have expended
$10 in Nobraskan at' 'ertiBlng this year. And this does not take into
account drossmakir j patronage of over $10,000 annually.
Lincoln has th.-ee florists, drawing from the fraternities alone
something like $2,500 yearly; all told, thoy have patronized The
Nebraskan to the extent of $3 this year.

Peru, Nob., Feb. 12, 1003. '
This has boofi an ovontful week at
the Stato Normal. No less than throe
bodies of visitors, composed of mem
bers of tho stato legislature, have boon
to seo us. They bolong to Boveral im
portant committees, such as public ed
ucation, public lands and buildings,
university and normal schools, lnsano
and other asylums. Such mon, repre
senting as they do widoly separated
sections of tho state, aro always wel
comed by tho Normal School. After a
visit of only a few hours thcBo men
appreciate more fully than speeches
and newspaper report? can toll, how
completely their own Interests and tho
interests of tho school aro Identical.
Most of those who visit tho school tho
first time aro froo to say that tho
school and tho town have not only not
been adoquatoly represented, but that
both have been positively misrepre
sented to them. Among the many
good words spokon by theso visitors,
perhaps tho best was tho sentiment
uttered by one o them, that "while
the appropriations of monoy for asy
lums, Industrial schools, etc., might bo
considered In tho light of charity by a
philanthropic people, tho appropria
tion of monoy for tho training of
teachers could bo considered in no
other light than that of an investment
which would return a hundred fold."
The immediate hopo of the-school is
centered about a larger assembly room,
better library and laboratory facilities,
and somo provision for physical train
ing. Interest during tho next two or three
weeks will bo centered in tho pre
liminary debates for the selection of
those who will represent us In tho in
terstate contests with Kansas and Mis
souri in tho near future. Tho Nobras
ka State Normal has won two succes
sive victories over tho Kansas State
Normal at Emporia, and also over tho
Missouri Stato Normal at Klrksville.
The winning of third is not improb
able. Having no Indoor facilities, athletics
are In abeyance pending tho approach
of warm weather and dry ground. Tho
