Governor Delivers Short Address
at Convocation.
Yesterday morning at convocation.
Governor Mickey addressed a large au
dience, in spite of the fact that It was
not known until shortly before chapel
lime that he would talk. His subject
was, "Problems to Solve," and proved
to be most interesting. Extracts from
it follow:
"To assume that any Individual cver
becomes entirely independent of en
ironments and conditions is a manl
iest error. In the moment of his fan
cied security, when circumstances are
all apparently In Jiis favor and not a
(loud dims the horizon of his pros
pects, the waves of adversity may come
without warning and in a moment
chaos and ruin exist where formerly
security sat enthroned. AM the teach
ings of human experience Impress upon
our minds this one fact that the boast
of indicldual independence is vain.
"Thore is an analogy between the
individual and the nation between the
atom and the object of which it is a
part. The inherent strength or weak
ness of the one is sure to have Its
counterpart In the other and the mere
process of multiplication does not
change the ratio existing between vir
tue and vice. We look with pride to
the wonderful results that have been
accomplished since the Pilgrim Fathers
set foot upon Plymouth Rock and laid
the foundations for an era of liberty
and national genius such as the world
has never before contemplated. On
various patriotic holidays and public
occasions we are prone to recount our
national strength and the history of
our achievements, while our hearts
swell with pride at the recital. Truly
t is a magnificent subject and slug
gish indeed are the wellsprlngs of
I atrlotism that are not stirred by it.
"In these days of multiplied popula
tion, stupendous industrial activity, ag
grandized wealth and corporate monop
oly is there not a -tendency to depart
irom those principles of equality be
fore the law, of self-restraint, of fra
ternal interest and religious consecra
tion which characterized our earlier
years as a nation? It seems to mo
that there is and that the groat need
of our times Is for consecrated leaders
who can distinguish tfte right through
all the sophistries of error and who
can lead the people out from the perils
which threaten them. Abraham Lin
coln was such a man. I believe that
he was ordained of God to perform his
mighty part In the drama of human
liberty, but that God made use of him
because the bent of his thoughts and
t nergles was In harmony with the
Divine will. When, in the memorable
senatorial campaign of 1858, Lincoln
enunciated the famous principle that
"this nation cannot continue to exist,
half 6lav'e and half free," he conse
crated his life to the gigantic struggle
against sHjivery. His closest personal
frionds advised him against tho ut
terance, urging that the time was not
opportune. But I incoln was led by a
higher power. His mental islon"saw
beyond the present, comprehending
that the very existence of the Union

Foot Ball Men Work Hard For a
Big Game Saturday.

I ast night practice was full of snap
and ginger, the cold weather making
fast playing easier. McDonald wan

shifted from center, and Botg replaced.

last night to make final arrangement
for the game there next week Upon
his return Saturday definite announce
ment can probably bo made legardlng
the proposed excursion to Minnesota.
Saturday we meet the doughty team
from Knox. While this game Is not
causing the speculation that some
others are. yet it will be a good one.
Two years ago the men from Gales
burg sprang a complete surprise on
us and held Nebraska 7-0. Last year,
while the score was some larger, they
scored and this year they report one
of the host teams In their football his
tory. All of Nebraska's men' are In
good condition again, with the excep
tion of Borg, whoe ankle Is still too
stiff to stand much strain. Saturda
the rooters will be able to get a final
line on the team as lined tin before
meeting the Gophers. The new t usli
line, with Benedict and Johnson at
ends will be given Its first trial, and
the result will be watched with a good
deal of interest, for this is the vVay
things should be The athletic board
Is put to no little expense to bring
the Knox men here, and a good crowd
should turn out. New yells and songs
have been received and will be used
then for the first time. Let tho root
ing section be full, and every rooter
accompanied with a megaphone.
