DELIVERS EXCELLENT TALK AT
Compares Russian and French Revolu
tions 'as to Motive and
Professor Fling gavo an Instructive
tulk on the "French and Russian Revo
lutions" at Convocation yesterday
morning. By way of Introduction, he
quoted the old Greek saying: "I am a
man, and nothing which concerns hu
manity can be of Indifference to mo."
The movement in Russia Is part of a
movement as old as society itself, as
was' the one In France many years be
fore, both emphasizing the political
side. These movements In Russia and
Franco are parts of one political move
ment lasting for several centuries. It
began In England, followed later in
American colonies, then crossed to the
continent, culminating In France. In
1870 constitutional government was
established thruout Europe, except In
Russia. In Asia Japan took it up, and
oven China may bo ahead of Russia in
its adoption, thus making Russia, with
the exception of Turkey, the last coun
try In the civilized world to have this
form of government.
One hundred years ago the French
turned to Greece and Rome for models,
referring to Brutus and the Greek
heroes. References. In Russia are now
constantly mado to France, for the
French Revolution influenced Russia
directly. Much study and writing has
.been done in Russia, valuable litera
ture being in possession of the Rus
sian universities, but in one sense the
French Revolution has been studied as
A comparison of the two revolutions
must be rapid and superficial. The
Russian revolution has just begun, yet
the cond'tlons are similar to those
which p Availed in France. There Is
cSSftal arbitrary government, abun
dance of graft, and taxations oppres
sive to the poasants, who are mostly
ignorant. There uxiBts a lack of lib
erty, of speech and Of person, and an
ignorance of privileges. A long period
of agitation has led to a similar course
of events. Foreign, wars in both. cases
have incurred great debt, and these
wars have caused also the calling of
assemblies. The rulers, Louis XVI
and Nicholas I, have both been- in
efficient but well-meaning men.
Again, new elements have come in.
Russia must contend with industrial
problems, trade unions, strikes, social
ism and anarchy. France wanted a re-,
public, and the agitation was conduct
ed by parliament and the educated
people struggling against the govern
ment. In Russia the peasants are
leading, thus making the aims differ
The course of events during the, first
year differs widely. In France the

Budd Gillespie, the popular and ef
ficient director of the UnlvorsityGlee
and Mandolin Clubs is too well known
among tho student body to require in
troduction. In 1897 ho assisted Wlll
ard Kimball In organizing and train
ing the Glee Club. He has always
the central power of the king, and de
stroying the feudal system. In Rus
sia the revolution Is bloodier, for the
government remains firm and the
troops loyal, so that there has been no
advance. It is a question of world In
terest lujw constitutional government
should be established in Russia.

Dr.Bplton Outlines Work Flnancet
in Good Condition More
Tho Collogo Settlement Board of tho
Unlvorslty of .NobrnBka is making
preparations for an unusually vigorous
campaign thruout tho coinlng year.
Already appeals for tho funds nccoa
Bnry to carry on tho work of tho Set
tlement have boon taken to tho busi
nosB men and othor citizens of Lin
coln and tho response has boon unusu
ally gratifying to all frlondB of tho en
terprise. 'An urgont appeal Is now oxtendod to
tho Faculty and to tho studont body
to renew their Intorost In tho -Settlement
and to glvo gladly and enthusias
tically tho assistance in tho actual
work of tho enterprise that is noces
sary for an unqualified succobb. Tho
Settlement Board urges that It Ib In
cumbent upon tho Unlvorslty as a
wholo to make good at tho Sottlomont
houso and bo make tho best of tho
financial assistance already rendered.
Tho Sottlomont has -at Its disposal
two commodious houses, comfortably
furnished and especially adapted for
tho work In hand. They are located at
Twentieth and N streets, an admirablo
situation for drawing tho boys and.
girls who would bo moBt benefited by
such instruction as tho Sottlomont of
lers. In years past exceedingly largo
classes have rewarded tho efforts o
tho workers and an increased enroll
ment is confidently expected this year.
In a general way tho work of tho
Sottlomont is woll. known. The pur
pose behind it, of courso, Is to bring
to the citizens of Lincoln the practical
advantages of a higher school of edu
cation, such as tho University is, and
to show them that tho University
means something for the general so
Tho practical work of tho Settle
ment is perhaps not so well known.
During tho past year clubs were
formed for tho purpose of bringing tho
boys and girls of the Settlement sec-,
tion together socially and they met
with marked success. BeBldes. Ihis,
classes were conducted in- oarpentry,
cooking, and sewing under thokdlrec
tion of University students who were,,
lir turn, under the supervision of Unl
vorslty professors and other experts.
It Is planned to enlarge the work along
these lines during the .winter and
what workers have already returned
are entering Into It with apparently
unbounded enthusiasm. Any Univor-,
slty students desiring to participate in
this work should see Professor Bolton,
oi some other member of tho Board
at once or all available positions will
be filled. This offers students desjrlug
to engage in Settlement v work after
graduation an excellent chance to get
in touch with the elementary require-,
raents of tho field.
