Yamashita Yathichiro Writes to
Students and Faculty.
Sad as is tho word farewell I shall
treasure It Joyfully as It Implies a
"pleasaiit meeting.
Thus Yamashita Yashlcihro, the Jap
anese students, whoso struggles for a
higher education fn a strange country
far from tho land of his birth have ex
, cited the admiration of all who have
known him, takes his leave from our
"University. Ho receives his A. M. de"
gree In American history and sociolo
gy at the coming Charter Day exer
cises. Although he will not return
to Japan until next May, his careeer as
a student In our University, with
which his Interests While In this coun
try have been largely Identified, Is end
ed. In the meantime he will instruct
by mall a largo number of special pu-
"Trtla In San Francisco In "Social Com
position," and "Political Economy,"
and will endeavor to educate them into
an- understanding of Japan as a na
tion. In leaving he writes the follow
ing letter, which ho has handed to us
for publication:
To thevtkculty and Btudents of the
University ofNebraska: It was four
years ago that 'I entered this Univer
sity an entire stranger, but It was not
long before I 'became acquainted with
, rriany of -you;, Durlng-my University
life I have received much klndneEa
from you all. I have appreciated the
great advantages to bo found In this
institution, .which ds so practical and
so broad. I have learned tho customs
and the principles of the American peo
ple as reflected in the dally life of the
students, and the cMracter of the
study. Tho courtesy and friendship
which you have shown me are some
thing I treasure most highly and which
I Bhall-never forget, but I feel that I
have been unable to reciprocate aB I
should and as I desired. However, I
hope sometime to bo able to demon
strate my appreciation of your good
ness to mo. It will be my pleasant
duty toToward each of you as I am

I .mean that I shall do the very best
for all my fellowmen that lies in my
powor. I shall devote my life regard

mankind and in helping to make their
condition better. I Bhall go forth do
ing unto others as you have done unto
me, and, so the reward will -he yours,
for I merely exemplify the beautiful
in life ttia you, have so well extended
to me. I-am hot versatile enoush to

In nature. Character as It is common
ly interpreted Is the reflection of en
vironment and training, while nature
Is- the representation of the law "of all
men's minds no matter where or how
taught, showing the power that is
above us. Knowledge is quantity of
learning and the nature is the posses
sion of unknown facts. Learning in
tho west and the east has give me a
ics, showing the wode doistlndlunup
vivid insight into their character
istics, showing the wide distinction
between man in the west and tho east.
After wo know enough of man then
wo can learn what Is nature. My sym
pathy is entirely with the common
people who stand on the conservative
and reasonable ground, but not with
those carried away by feeling and ruled
by a- spirit of hate and destruction.
For thiB reason I hope to find the level
towards which these point. I may be
able tohelp unlto the extremists, that
none may wish to harm the other, bo
they poor or rich, but that they may
work for each, other's welfare. This
I shall mako my future work and by
this I hope to accomplish much good
ln the government-and perfple oV Ja
pan. .
My purpose and preparation have
never deviated from this Ideal and shall
follow It to its culmination.
I thank you for your valued support
In my study of man. I hope I shall
meet you all in peace If wo should
assemble to consider a question affect
ing national Integrity and internation
al welfare. Truth precedes peace and
truth asurea peace. Truth is mighty in
all things affecting right and duty. Le
gal and moral right and duty may not
always conform to peace, but truth
embraces all.
Let us seek truth instead of peace,
for peace is but an element of truth.
The eastern question Is not simply
a question of tho east, but it is a ques
tion of the world. It can not bo settled
by enforcing our legalrlghts, but by
doing our moral duty:
Secure a lasting peace by promoting
truth, not by depending on tho mere
condition of peace
Let us not Judge a thing by our un
derstanding of what is our right, liuf
what is our duty toward others.
Do not contend frpm tho legal-point
of view, but on the groundof moral.

but duty interprets the cause into
I hope earnestly' for your great- suc
cess, and that each of you may have
a prosperous life.
Departure is very sad for me, but I
know It is tho result of a pleasant

Without a parting there could have
been no meeting. Let mo repeat again
and again my thanks to you for your
kind support. My home address Is:

Track Men Come Out in Good
The track men Justified their claim
of being the best supporters of their
section of college athletics by the man
ner In which thoy turned out to tho
meeting in Dr. Clapp's office yesterday
morning at chapel time. Dr. Clapp
spoke briefly about the necessity of the
heartiest co-pperatlon of every man in
the university If wo are to turn out a
successful track team this year. He
then made arrangements for practice
each evening in the armory from 4 to 5
on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and
from 5 to 6 on Tuesday and Thursday.
Last evening' Lcsh, Bender and Hauser,
a hurdler from Beatrice, were out for
a little warming up.
There was no bosket ball practice
by the regular team yesterday on ac
count of the game with Wesloyan last
night. Tho second team was out for
a little goal practice. Beers has been
ordered out of the game for the season
by his doctor on account of ills in
jured knee. This will weaken the team
materially, as ho was a strong player
and was an especially fine team work
er, a branch of tho game in which our
team was woefully deficient last year.
Benedict will tako his place and Hewitt
will resume his old place at center.
Next Monday night the freshmen and
second Y. M. C. A. teams will meet,
and tho Senior High School ..gamo,
postponed from tonight, will be played.
This double attraction will be well
worth seeing.
The law team and Wesleyan were to
lock horns Wednesday night,- but Wes
leyan called the game off at tho last
minute as they wished to save their
men for the game last night.
Tho Junior Academics ancT Senior
Laws met last night in the chapel, but
a .referee could not bo obtained, so
every score was contested. Conse
quently, the last score obtainable was

The team will leavo on Jts eastern

It Is quite likely that it will, meet Min

Wesley an Beaten 25 to 9. Only
Played One Half.
Nebraska administered a severe do
feat to Wesleyan In twenty-five min
utes of play last night, to tho tunc of
25 to 9, and would have done ovon bet
ter had not tho failure of tho lights
forced the refereo to call the gamo at
tho end of tho first half. Tho Universi
ty team were at first seriously handi
capped by tho narrow- field at WeBloy
an, and their opponents had a corres
ponding advantage. The feature of tho
game was Hagenalck's goal throwing,
ho obtaining eleven goals from tho field
In tho slnglo half. Hoar's work at
guard was also very creditable, while
Lowell did tho best work for tho Wes
loyans. Tho only chance Wesloyan had
to sco re o was from free throws after
fouls by tho University, which were
unusually numerous.
Before the gamo tho Wesleyan Ju
niors and the Y. M. C. A. Juniors played
one half. Tho Lincoln boys were se
verely handicapped in size, but put up
a-very good gamo and held their oppo
nents down to the score of 13 to 17 in
favor of Wesleyan.

Nebraska-WeBleyan game follows:
