tlrofiMident body. This nfternoon nnd

Christmas buoyancy most sthmgly
The Christmas holidays form a va
cation In tho truest sense of the word.
They come after a poriod of hard work,
which In many caBe.s has not beo nln
terruptod slnco the beginning of school
In September. They came at a time
of tho your when vitality and enthus
iasm hnve reached their utmost llmltsl
iind when tho interim granted can bo
spent In vigorous pleasures rather than
University public tho Dally Nobrnskan
oxtonds Its best wishes for A MERRY
CHRISTMAS and A HAPPY NEW
YEAR. Tho members of Its staff be
gin their vacation from tho work'Of
tho paper with tho distribution of this
Issuo. Publication will bo rosumod
with tho opening of tho University
after tho New Year and will continue
without Interruption until tho week of
final examinations. It is hoped that
tho holidays may be productive of
much good for the paper and that tho
Issues for January can keep up the
standard of Intorcst which wo believe
to have been already established.

THE FIRST MOVE.
Simplified Spelling As It Was
A recent discovory made by ono of
tho University's Industrious studonts
of history goes far toward proving that
President Rosovolt Is by no moans the
llrst advocato of simplified spelling. In
a Washington dally of August, 1838,
was found a verbatim account of an
advertisement posted on a small bunk
room door of a ploasuro boat on Lake
Georgo. The ad. roads as follows:
"Tharo Is sum live rattall snalx tu
bo scan In a bocks on this boto fur
sick spunts h clto for groan foax, and
children halt prise.
"Please tu call on Old Dick.
"N. B. Kash pade or no sho."

In the recuperation of enforced Idle
ness. More than this, thoro Is nothing of
sadness In tho thought of the Chrlst
mns vacation. In Juno, when tho sec
ond semester draws to a cldso, there
Is among a largo number of studonts
the knowlodga that a roturn to Lin
coln 'when tho University opjjns once
more, Is an absolute Impossibility.
This Is not true at Christmas. Every
one of us Is planning to como back
aftor the Now 'Yoar has oponed. Each
one of us knows he will roturn to his
studios with an Increased zest, ,and
with an Inspiration that .tho holidays
always bring to him who uses them
Wo are all glad at tho thought of
going homo. Two weeks from now
we will all hS glad at- the thought of
tho roturn to our work In Lincoln.
This Is essentially as It should be and
we wish to openly recognlzo tho wis
dom of those who first ordained a two
weeks vacation at. Christmas.
To each and every member of tho
President's laurels to say that ho pla
giarized the literature of the keeper of
a snake show; but whether he drew
his Inspiration from this source or not,
tho fact remains that the old tar "beat
him to It."
