Serpeni," the "vvoild-IIerald undertakes I
to point out the bitter experience m j
other Institutions that have, receivod
aid from Mr. Rockefeller, and advises
our regents to take warning there
from. Two Instances are cited as prac
tical examples the reported falling off
of attendance at Brown and Chicago.
In referring to the former Instance, it
"Several weeks ago the World-Herald
printed a letter from a grnduato of
Brown University, showing a large fall
ing off in the number of students slme
the Rockefeller Influence was fastened
upon that institution."
During the school year of 185)9-1900,
when the first Rockefeller gift or $250,
000 to Brown University was an
nounced, the attendance at that insti
tution was 88. In 1900-01 it was 872.
And during the past two years it was
920 and 940 respectively. These figures
are official and not the statement of
any "graduate." They can be found
In the Brown University calendar foi
(lie years mentioned. Furthermore,
the attendance has been lessened by the
cutting out of special and unclassified
students and the requirements for en
trance being raised, and still there has
been a steady increase, So the shbw-
lug for these yoats can nanny ne u-
garded as a "large falling off."
To show that the attendant e is fall
ing off at, Chicago, the World-Herald
says that tho enrollment at that In
stitution was l,5tin this year as against
2.120 last year. The alendar of the
University of Chicago will show that
the total enrollment or that institution
was 4,403 last year, which Is a some
what larger number that the World
By these facts It is shown how bare
faced and Illogical Is t he action of the
World-Herald In attempting to show
that tho Influence of Rockefeller dona-tions-hns
had a detrimental effect upr
on tho attendance of the. Institutions
recehing them. The Insincerity of the
whole article is thus mado plain, In the
attempt at a bridged-over relation be

whole force of the World-Herald's ar

of the game that it ever bo precluded.
'Ihc taBk of picking a team entails, a
groat deal of responsibility and a man

qualities of a player Is alouo fit to

good material and we hope to bcc the
best possible use made of It.
Although the basket ball Benson has
been closed for our first team, the game
will continue to be played hero yet for
a limited time at least. The girls' teams
will be active for some time yet, as
they have some interesting games in
view. Saturday the Academy team and
the "Midgets" will meet and settle the
question of superiority. The first team
will also try conclusions with the sec
ond team, and this game promises
much of Interest. Girls' basket ball
has come Into vogue in most of our
high Bchools and is regarded as one
of the best forms of physical exarcis".

Because Dr. E. Benjamin Andrews
favors the acceptance by the Universi
ty of Nobraska of a substantial dona
tion from that rare old Baptist elder,
Mr. Rockefeller, the Grand Army post
of Kearney, Neb., demands that the
educator "be fired bodily" from the
.state. Dr, Andrews' experience, it !s
to be hoped, will n&ver reach so' dra
matic a climax. But one thing is sure
they can never scare him, even in

A Successful Educator.
I'rofessor Luckey just recehed a
letter from Supt. J. K. Stapleton, of
Bloomington. 111., in which he sajs:
"Since you recommended me to the
people of Bloomington, you will prob
abl be pleased to know that I haf
just been unanimously re-elected city
superintendent, for another year, wit 11
an increase In salary of $500, making
my salary for the coming year, $3,000."
Many students will remember Mr.
Stapleton as superintendent at Lc
Ington, Neb. He was very successful
in this state, and seems to be equally
so In Illinois. While in Nebraska lu

showing up the physical character of
the country on which Rome was built,
and then proceeded to explain the
magnificence of those mighty struc

city. Among the ancient buddings
thatwere shown and fully explained
-were the Roman Forum, the Arrh of
Titus, the ruins of the large temple
in which Cicero delivered his famous
oration that exposed the conspiracy of
Cataline, the Arch of the Silversmith
at tho cattle market, completed In 201
B. C. tho Arch of Constantine, whk-h
was the last of the great structures
built, and which marked the destruc

stood the fouutaln where the gladiators
quenched their thirst, and greatest of
all. tho plan and the wonderful mag-
nmeeneo of the Roman amphitheatre,
with Its Ionic and Doric finish, which
seated 87,000 people, and which could
be vacated In ten minutes..
The lecture was well Illustrated and
the suggestions by a good woud descrip
tion were highly commendable.
