It is wonderful how Intensely loynl
sciro ol our great dully newspapers
oft on Ix'conr.e. Their zeal In taking of-f-jnbo
at a ellfeht cast upon somo great
national figure, Is so great that it of
ten loads thorn Into an exercise of the
Imagination, so that they are able to
detect such si! hts where nono are In
tended or cvch oxlst Thus It 1b that
wo nro informed that Chancellor An
drews called Abraham Lincoln a boor
In an article- In Success. Anyone who
road the article through wouldi upon
sober-minded reflection hesitate to as
port that such n statement was made
1 herein, nut why are not these papers
v illlng to bo exact? Why do they not
Ftato that Chancellor Andrews said
that Abraham Lincoln would have been
less of a boor if he had had college
training, audi then let the people draw
the inference, if any can reasonably be
drawn? They bIiow too gront a will
ingness t find Chancellor Andrews at
fault, and prefer to interpret what ho
says to suit thomselves. One thing is
certain. No paper has ever shown
conclusively that Chancellor Andrews
has said oxpllclty that Lincoln was a
booj and the statements alleging that
lie did must be taken with a certain
amount of reserve. Any loyal citizen
would be quick lrr-resenting a slight
cast upou Abraham Lincoln, and we do
not believe that anyone would bo any
more prompt in so doing than Chan
cellor Andrews, for he fought under
him and was wounded during the war
and served three years under him In
a personal capacity.
The second' Junior theme is now duo.
and the asking of extensions is now in
order. Most students find it difficult
to- pick out some certain time for con
centrating theli efforts in evolving a
production U.at they are willing to
allow to pass nsthelr best, when a time
limit extending over several months is
ullowod'. This is especially difficult for
the busy student who has practically
the whole of hisi timo speciaflcally
taken up. Yet there is no truer test
of the progress that a student has made
in college and of the Increase in men
tal capacity than the writing of such
themes. Everyone who alms to ac
qulro a good education should seek first
of all to become prolific in expressing
himself, as well as in forming new
ideas and to cultivate a stylo that is
peculiarly hlB own. A person may copy
after another, but at the best ho can
only bo an imitator, and if he follows
too closely, his own stamp of Individ
uality will bo lost In tho attempt to
assume ono belonging to someone else.
The English courses here are Intended
to give tho student a knowledge of the
Only a week remains before the
Rhodes scholarship examinations, and
it is certainly timo now that those who
aro thinking about ontoring the contest
should have their minds made up, The
fact that tho examination is merely a
qualifying ono ought to encourage
many to enter, who might have reason
to fear if tho outcome was to be the
result of a test of scholarship alone.
Tho fact that athletics and' qualities
of character are taken so largely Into
consideration, shows tho liberal views
of tho man who has given this oppor
tunity to so many American students.
Whoever wino will havo to work for
it and show himself well fitted In all
tho requirements demanded. Consid
erable interest in the examination lias
been aroused among the people of the
state, as the conditions and general
purpoBo havo been published widely.
Ono drawback is that some of the best
men in school are so greatly occupied
with other duties that they can not
afford tho timo necessary for prepara
tion. Yet wo can rest assured that the
man who does succeed will be deserv
ing of the place.
Hair-cutting has come to figure quite
largely In the manifestation of class
spirit at Michigan, and somo of tho
students there havo shown great ex
portncsB as amateur barbers. This Is
somewhat similar to the customs of
the aboriginal inhabitants of the coun
try, only the students aro content to
do with less. There Is certainly pome-
tliing very gratifying in beholding a.
rival classman shorn of beveral of hi.
locks, his beauty being thus marn d. At
any rate It makes work for tho bar
ners. and they at least can not object.
Tho existence of class spirit is often
made evident in peculiar ways, but wi
think that the Michigan students nro

Junior Boys Meet This Morning.
The Junior boys will meet during tlu
chapel period this morning to stir up
IntouoBt in baseball matters. Will Ram
sey has been elected captain or the
team. All of the places on the team
will have to be competed for, and no
man will find a berth waiting for him
unless ho makes some attempts to se
cure it. Tho Juniors are confident
that they have material for a winning
teanv. President Allen has appointed
W. J. Woods manager of the team. The
Seniors and Sophomores have already
chosen their managor and captain, and
tho Freshmen will very shortly be right
In line. Class baseball should create
some excitement this year, as the s,ioit
is a healthy one and affords' an exi cl
ient opportunity for the rival oigani
zatlons to compete with each other
without tho loss of life or limb.
High Sch ol Debate.
Professor Fogg addressed tho South
eastern Nebraska Teachers' assocla
tlonat Beatrice last Friday night at
the close of an unusually fine debate,
in which eight high schools of the state
participated. His subject was, "De
bate and Its Value." E. H. Clark was
ono of the judges of the contest, which
resulted in the victory going to Mr.
Ronnoker, of Beatrice.
Professor Fogg reports an excellent
time and a debate of extraordinary
merit. A crowd of eight or nine hund
red was present and much enthusiasm
was in evidence. Each town represent
ed in tho debate sent a large dolgation.
and much rivalry for chldf honors lent
unusual spirit to tho contest.
