Many Friends Pay Last Tribute
to Miss Smith.
Memorial hall was crowded Sunday
afternoon with the friends of the Into
Miss Ellon Smith, gathered with her
visiting rolatlves to pay their last re
spects to the memory of one of the old
est and most faithful servants of the
University. On the platform masses of
flowers surrounded an oil portrait of
Miss Smith, painted by Miss Hayden.
The services were more commemora
tive than eulogistic. I)r J. K. Tuttle
followed the solos of Mr. Wilbur Starr
with a talk on the two-fold character
of the late registrar the stern and
forbidding aspect she presented in the
performance of her official duties, and
the sweet and kindly disposition which
won for her the lasting friendship of
thoso who knew her In her home and
social life. The helpfulness and nobil
ity of her personal life and the loyalty
and efficiency of her official life were
commended as worthy of both praise
The remains of Miss Smith were
shipped last night to the old family
home at Orwell, Ohio, where they will
rest beside those of her mother
The State Historical society took ad
vantage of its oppoi limit ies and had a
death mask of Miss Smith made Satur
day. Miss Smith has been in the em
ploy of the state for so many years and
has been so closely connected with the
University tnat the historical society
thought it appropriate to get a mask
made and place a cast of the late regis
trar lu the historical rooms below the
library. John T. Mllek, a student of
the law school, who has done borne
work along that line and who is some
what of an artist, was secured to take
the imnr'flHBfikrhe result was a good
, JL Mr. Milek thinks will
u very good cast, in spite of the
tct that the fate did not look quite
natural. If resultb prove entirely satis
factory, two casts will be made from
the mask, one of which will be sent to
Miss Smlth'B nephew in Chicago and
the other retained at the University.

Chancellor Andrews addressed a
large and enthusiastic audience at the
city Y. M. C A. men's mooting, hold
at the Oliver Sunday afternoon. The
parquet was occupied principally by
members of (J A R , University bat
talion and Lincoln Light Infantry.
Secretary Mayne presided. The Uni
versity Glee Club aided in the singing
of patriotic hymns, and Mr. Steokel
berg rendered two violin selections in
such a finished manner as to win tre
The chancellor spoke on "George
Washington." pointing out the traits of
his character which caused the Amer
ican people to honor him more than
any other Amei lean statesman. In the
first place, said the speaker, George
Washington was at all periods of his
remarkable career something more
than a politician. Lincoln was at one
time a politician, but after a time he
became a groat statesman Washing
ton was never a politician. Another
important trait of Washington's char
actor was his many-sidedness. He was
groat in war and groat in peace. It
was clue, in a groat measure, to Wash
ington's strong character and states
manship that the thirteen colonies were
held together during the years immedi
ately following the Revolution Wash
ington's groat personality inspired con
done e In the men who came In contact
with him. He possessed a reserve force
which was not expressed oven in the
groat deeds and works of the man. A
third cause ot Washington's greatness
was his firm faitu in God. Ho believed.
as we believe, that he was struggling
in a righteous cause, and that success
would ultimately c rown his labors.
Alter the address Mr. Steokelberg
tendered another selection. Rev. Row
lands then gae the benediction. The
meeting was a success in every way, as
was shown by the Interest and appre
ciation of the large audience.

Glee Club's Splendid Concert
Before Small Audience.
The University Glee Club, which has
boon training for several months under
the direction of Professor Starr, gave
Its first concert in Memorial hall Sat
urday night The program was an ex
cellent one and had been arranged with
especial care, because it was expected
that the University people would an
ticipate a good entertainment and turn
out In large numbers to encourage the
club as well as to be entertained. The
club did its part thoroughly and pre
sented a program thnt would be appre
ciated by any audience. The students
and city people, however, did not turn
oul and fill the hall. The student and
factulty element was lacking to a no
ticeable extent. The center aisle was
partly filled and a few seats on the side
aisles and In the galleries wore occu
pied. The program consisted of eleven
numbers, solos, quartettes, with a read
ing by Mr. Bates and a mandolin solo
by Mrs. Starr. The music was diverse,
representing the humorous, the pa
thetic, tho gay and the sad. Two
numbers. "His Funeral's Tomorrow"
and "Tho Grasshopper." a dramatic
cantata, furnished much amusement.
The latter number Introduced McCul
loch as Miss Hopper, Broi kway as
Aunty Hopper. Stull as tho Turkey
Gobbler and Chesslngton as tho Bum
ble Bee Four ballads were sung Ger
man, Scotch, Irish and English which
told the story of the grasshopper on
the sweet potato vine, his death and so
on. Aunty Hopper and Miss Hopper,
dressed in appropriate attire, were a
source of much enjoyment. The club
received encore after encore to which
they cheerfully responded.
The concert was a brilliant success
in every way, but from a financial point
of view. The management hoped to
secure a good audience Saturday night
that would give tho club a start on its
contemplated trip to Omaha. Wahoo,
Hastings and seeral other cities of
the state. Saturday night's entertain
ment, however, merely paid expenses.
What the club will do now is a ques
tion. The manager said yesterday:
"One tiling is sure, we will not sing
again in Lincoln."
Gordon Will Coach.
The athletic board voted, at last
night's meeting, to engage Eddie Gor
don to coach the baseball team. Mr.
Gordon's ability is well known, and
with the experience he has had on
Western league teams he will be of
great service to the nine. Eddie takes
a deep personal Interest In the Univer
sity and will do his best to build up a
winning team The baseball manager
was authorized to arrange for the east
ern trip, which will occupy two weeks.
Tho track manager was authorized to
arrange for the meet with South Da
kota at Sioux City and the meet with
Kansas at Lawrence.
