Defends University '
It Is encouraging to find suchvsup
portors ;of the' University . througSbu
tho state as is the editor of the Ash
land Gazette. The following is an ed
itorial which appeared recently la the
columns of that jper:.
, Some weeks ago a local preacher
attacked thejellglous.splrit of the state
university in. an open" address at a
union meeting of the city churches,
asserting that tho institution was a
"hotbed of infidelity," and that its stu
dents and graduates were generally-
infidels of "the worst type. The Ash
land, dazetto challenged the statement
atxd made -Inquiry of the" registrar of
the state university for Information
theMIfe at the Inatitution., The Gazette
has slnceprlntedsa.statement from the
registrar thatT makes an ' interesting
showing. It shows that, of all tho in
Btructlonal staff with the rank ofi pro
fessor, associate professor,- 'assistant
professor and adjunct professor, sixty
per cent are members of some church
and nearly af are attendants at-omo
church. The university Y. M. 0. A.
has 300Tmembers, the, university Y, W.
C. A. .360 members. Of the' 594 fresh
men 373 "are church members, 187
church .adherents and 34 have no af
filiation. , The other classes run- about.,
the same. Of the total attendance but;
five pec cent have noafiliatton with
'any church. Almost every church In
iiincoln Is shown 'to have a university
class in its Sunday school. Out of the
eleven fraternities, seven have weekly
Bible classes cbnducted by the secre
tary of the university Y.M. Q4 A. or
one of their members, These classes
meet in thV chapter houses usually
Sunday afternoons or oa some evening
in the week.
In addition the Gazette calkf attea
tion to the fact that Chancellor 9.
"BenJ. Andrews 'is ome of the best,
known Baptist preachers la the west,
while the largest Bibto'claes ia the
First Baptist Suaday school U eoat-
posed entirely of ualYersity students.
