Fete Day Brings Large Crowd.
All Have a Good Time.
Tho first high school fete day was
ushered In with a blaze of colors and
streamers. At an early hour the first
of the visiting delegations began to
arrive, and by 10 o'clock the campus
was thronged with gay and happy
groups. Under the direction of Uni
versity guides the different bodies of
students inspected the grounds, build
ings, and laboratories, thus being en
abled to form some ideas of the scope
and character of the work with which
higher education is identified. The
museum and .Historical Bociety were
the chief centers of interest, both
places being continually thronged with
curious spectators. The laboratories
were also a center of attraction, while
smaller groups wandered at random
through the various departments that
wore opened to their Inspection.
The exercises of welcome In Me
morial hall were preceded by enthusi
astic demonstrations on the part of the
high school delegations, who, in emula
tion of the University slogan, vied with
each other in giving their yellB In the
absence of Chancellor Andrews, Dean
Davis delivered the address of wel
come. In behalf of the University he
welcomed the high schools and ex
pressed his appreciation of their pres
ence. In addition he said that not only
the University, but the state itself
wishes Its sons and daughters to re
ceive the advantages of higher educa
tion, such as the University affords.
Students are wanted to come and work,
and in accordance with President
Roosevelt'B advice, they Bhould work
while they work and play while they
play. Here each student should de
velop a spirit of thought and research
for themselves, and not take things
for granted, merely upon someone else's
say-so. 1 no lneai bluimjih ucci
without thinking, and the men who are
the greatest in public life are those
who plan before acting.
State. Superintendent Fowler, speak
ing first in response, thanked the Uni
versity authorities and officers for the
fine opportunity given to the high
schools to inspect the buildings,
grounds, and laboratories In his
opinion every child In Nebraska by
constitutional provision should have
access to a high school course. He
considered It not only a privilege, but
a duty that the young students should
o otiH tnsnert tho University. The
University is a wonderful incentive to
the high school students, the cadet bat
talion inspiring them to military bear
ing, and the football and other ath
letic teams to greater endeavors in
Principal H. K. Wolfe, of the Lin
coln high school, expressed his appre
ciation of the University to" further
the Interests of higher education. The
University does not need buildings bo
much as she does an increase of pres
t,lgo In the minds of the high schools
of the state. Such efforts as the pres
ent occa8lonVttWear more fruit than
buildings and endowments. He Invited
the visiting students to visit and in
spect the Lincoln high school before
leaving the city.

dents which happened when he was a
Btudent of the University. In conclu

one can realize what the University
is without coming hito contact with
the men who constitute the faculty.
Attempts to elicit speeches from

Caldwell responded to an invitation to

Nebraska met her old rival. Notre
Dame, yesterday and went down before
her by a score of 2 to 13. Wh'lle It
was hardly hoped that the game would
be ours, better news was expected of
It than that which came over the wires
last night. According to the report,
the Cornhuskers did not play up to
tho standard that they had all but
established. Notre Dame has always
been strong, especially in baseball, and
she seems to have lost none of her
skill on tho diamond. Tho trouble, so
far as the dispatches Btate, did not Uo
in errors or poor playing on the part
of the individual members of the team,
but in the fact that Nebraska found
herself far outclassed by an older in
stitution, with more firmly established
So far as we can make out from last
night's telegram, errors were about
equally divided between the two teams.

much praise for our own state and In
formed the audience, which filled the
Auditorium, that no one need go east
for sight-seeing, because Nebraska has
