"What is college spirit?" when
Sympoalumlcus opened for him
prospect of more sleepless nights
plain of tho generosity if Mr. Cynicus
finds also a fow kraks In the line of
mental operations of the "professor"
Once upon a time ai.certainpioCessoM'whtr'hrolunteered to explain the terin
idertook to fill this long-suffering "college spirit." There Ib too much
mortal with a generous growth of
"college spirit," and so subjected him
to a long oration and peroration on
football and football enthusiasm;
"for," said he. "football enthusiasm Is
the seventeen times purified essonco of
collego spirit." But the heart of Cyn
icus remained cold. With a sudden in
spiration (supposedly) tho professor
asked: "Have you ever been In love?"
a startling question, the Initiated
ones will agree, especially because of
the past tense of the verb. Cynicus re
plied reproachfully that he had had no
trouble with the law; whereupon the
professor, seeing his listener had got
ten things slightly tangled, explained
that love did not necessarily have
anything to do with the law was In
fact noted for its lawlessness; that
only the "ego" and the alter ego" were
concerned in it. "College spirit,!' he
said, "Ib like love you must feel it
to understand Jt." Slowly Cynicus be
gan to dissolve, arid promised to try
'the thing on the "alter" (never mind
the declension.) Gratifying success
followed this venture, for soon a sojt
of growing sensation was experienced
somewhere between the stomach and
the clalcle. But tho sound pf "Eu
reka" had not died away whe.n sym
poslumlcus blew his. fierce trumpet
.blast, and said, "Nay, nay; thou hast
tt not!" Sp what Is a poor soul to do?
Well, Cynfcus said a heartrending
farewell over the gate post,, gathered
I together bis "ego," minus the. growing
sensaUpn, and is now ready to demand
satisfaction from the rude Mr. Sym,
postumlcus and his whole following.
Attention, guard! and have at them,
villain! .-.., ;

posiumlcus, "to speak of college spirit

with tho spirit which prompts those in
their early teens to give frequent evi
dence of their verdancy. Cynicus will
not now argue on the Intrinsic value
of these things, but contents himself
with asking if they constitute college
spirit." If so, Is it worth while to
make so much noise about It? Is there
any urgent need of a special shipment
of tenr-bottles to Lincoln?. "Such ac
tions," continues tho professor, "as
stealing, carrying books out of tho li
brary and getting away With valuables
in aHy manner should be suppressed."
Amen! But "true college spirit should
decry such thoughtless !! perform
ances and stamp them as something
vicious and ontlrely beneath" the tol
eranco of an Institution with the rank
of the University of Nebraska." Is
tho real article "true college spirit"
then so much like these "thought
less performances' that many cannot
tell tho difference? Cynicus" submits
that "true college spirit' must paste
on another label and let theae"thought
less performances" be dealt with In

erally supposed to receive their dues.
Let "college spirit" put Itself at the
service of the court.
