Those who attended convocation yes
terday morning had the pleasure 'of
listening to an account of the famous
Andrews raid by D. A. Dorsoy. Mr.
Dorsoy was a member of tho plucky
band participating In this remarkable
movement, being one of eight sur
vivors of the raid still living, and the
only one residing in Nebraska. The
knowledge- of this fact added Interest to
his account. The expedition was or
ganized early in 1862, under the au
thority of Major Gonoral Ewoll, who
was operating in Tennessee. It was of
a Becret nature and was planned and
led by a gentleman of the name of An
drowB, who was a spy in General
Ewell'B servico. It started on tao even
ing of April 7, 1862. There wero twenty-four
in the party, all dlsgulBed as
citizens. Shortly after starting An
drews explained tho nature of the ex
pedition to his followers and pointed
out tho dangers that would be Incurred.
They were to plunge into tho onemy'B
country and truBt to fortune for their
safety. Although they were given the
privilege of returning to tho Union
lines if they so desired, none took ad
vantage of the offer. Tho band split
up into squads of threes and fours and
proceeded to Chattanooga. They
crossed the river to tho depot on that
side and purchased tickets for Mariet
ta, Georgia. Only twenty of tho party
arrived there, as two had beon obliged
to turn back, and two enlisted In tho
Confederate army as a means of safety,
and in time managed to desert to the
Union lines again. At Marrletta the
party got off on the left side of the
train. Despite the fact that there was
a camp of 4,000 Confederates nearby,
they managed to cut the train and get
away with the engine and three box
cars. Andrews and the engineer and
fireman took possession of the engine.
The enemy were dumfounded. Two
miles out tho party cut the wires and
tore up a section of tho track. An
drews passed as one In charge of pow
der for Beauregard's array. Being a
native of Kentucky and a typical
Southern gentleman, his deception
worked to perfection. The object of
the raid was to burn tho bridges south
of Chattanooga. General Mitchell was
supposed to bo marching from Ala
bama to meet the party, but delayed on
tho way. Meanwhile tho enemy were
In close pursuit, having pressed a coal
car Into Bervlco, which made pretty
good time on the down grade. When
they came to the break in tho track
they wero dumped out, but Bet the car
on again and continued the pursuit.
They finally secured possession of an
engine, which they Boon abandoned for
another one at Kingston. From that
point the chaso becamo a hot one.
Five engines were used by tho pur
suers during the race, which lasted for
about a hundred miles. So close were
tho pursuers that It was Impossible to
burn any bridges at all. The Confed
erates, however, got a message through
to tho general at Chattanooga, but
neglected to give tho numbers of the
party. Thinking that a much larger
force was at work than there really
was, the general sent the greater part
of his array to Intercept them. Had
Mitchell pushed forward then he
would have been able to eat a late din
ner In Chattanooga, as the place was
practically deprived of its dofenders.
The engine finally ran out of fuel and
tho party took to the woods, but were
all picked up. Eight were executed,
but tho rest escaped with their lives.
Thus onded one of the most remarka
ble expeditions known to tho civil war.

Thoso expecting to teach next year,
who havo taken work In tho chorus
class, will find tho training received Lo
be of advantage In Becurlng a position.
Many schools prefer teachers who have
had musical training and who are ablo
to instruct the pupils In the rudi
ments of music. The chorus class gives
just such training as is required, and
for this reason as well as for many
others, is entitled to the attention of
all students in tho University who ex
