Not for several years has tho work
of the Inst five or six weeks of the
yefir been so subject to Interruption na
It Is this spring. First tho president's
visit, then fete day. last week com
petitive drill and the olrcuB, this week
the down-town carnival, and next week
cadet encampment what an awful de
moralization of schedules It has
wrought perhapB few on tho outside
realize. "What can't be cured miiBt
be endured," but even enduring it will
not offset Its evils. For the seniors,
whoso last months nro usually devoted
to a hundred other things than study,
thlscloslng of the year chaos will not
cause much concern; but with many
underclassmen it is becoming quite a
question JuBt how the crowding of sev
enteen hours of work to a successful
semester's end Is going to be accom
pllshed. There Is a limit to even the
cramming capacity, and If other yearB
develop the same frequency of Bprlng
Interruptions, something must give
way either the students' nerves or the
Brick walks have one great advan
tage over stone: they don't Invite red
paint In times of student celebration.
In another column, Dr. Ross takes
exception to our Saturday editorial on
the subject of debating. To his final
question, whether our victories in this
line have not proven "worth while,"
we are Inclined to return an affirma
tive answer. This, however, does not
remove the difficulties referred to in
Saturday's editorial. As an instructoi.
the writer Jias seen the whole value
of the second semester's work in cei
tain of his courses practically lost by
some of the best of his students, mere
ly through the absorption of their tlnu.1
and attention by debating. The course
in such case could be of no real vahw
to them, and they should not have
tried to take It. If even for only three
months, the time of the debaters is to
be monopolized by the intercollegiate
work, during that tlhie they ought not
to attempt to carry full work. The
best student cannot adequately make
up three months' back work In the
fourth and last month of the semester,
and do either the work or himself Jus
tice. If Dr. Ross, or anyone else,
can suggest a better method for har
monizing school and forensic work
than the one we have given. It will
be welcomed by all who are directly
or Indirectly affected by the present arrangement.
Dr. Ross Defends Debating.
Editor Dally Nebraskan:
Apropos of Saturday's editorial on
the work In debating let me make the
1. The debaters register for certain
courses In forenslcs which differ from
other courses chiefly In the fact that
the work is concentrated In the first
half of the semester.
2. The debaters are urged to and
usually do register for less- than the
customary number of hours of Uni
3. The labor of the debating teams,
unlike that of the athletic teams. Is
not tangent to. but parallel to the In
tellectual discipline for which a uni
versity exists. Forenslcs, therefore,
cannot become an abuse In the same
sensfl as athletics.
4. The athletes are presumably aver
age in scholarship. But no one can
get on the debating teams who is not
strong both in capacity and in scholar
ship. Why, then, cannot a professor
safely let the debater do some of his
class work a little later In the Bemester
than the rest ?
5. By working twelve good students
unusually hard for three months In the
year the University has been able In
the last two years to equip six re
doubtable teams, achieve five power
ful debates and to raise the debating
standards of the middle west. Has it
not been worth while?
