at tho postofllco at Lincoln,
as nccoml-cluHH mall matter
Act of Congress of March 3,
Anil now comes tho complaint that
wo nro writing too lightly, writing
simply for tho ontbrtulnment of read
ers. Of course, It is vain attempting
to please everybody, but if the seriouB
side of tho question discussed ' yeuter
day is desired, nothing would give us
nioro pleasure than to spek of it.
It is, indeed, a serious subject, and
tho more serious slnco a habit stand
ing in a way, as an index to certain
tendencies of our moUern life. Did it
over strlko you that tho people of to
day aro rather prone to overlook small
things? to aim at some vague abstract
aftor his first sthokoj but ho goes on.
Tho physical harm done, however,
is not tho most important, of course.
Anything which violates bur physical
lifo somehow dotracts from our spirit
ual lifo too, especially when a pander
ing to appetite, a surrender to some
thing not higher. And such action
loses us nn opportunity for acquiring
just so much moro strength, Is a slip
back in our struggle thru difficulties
up to something higher. You do not
agree? Yea, you do, but smoking is
only a small thing, and the evil en
tailed being of no great degree, you
are cardless, that Is all.
To tho Editor of Tho Nebraskan:
Tho last year of University society
has been exceptionally spectacular for
its infinite number of new secret or
ganizations. No period of pur Univer
sity's history has been so celebrated
for Its multitude of new student or
ders. In fact, theso upstarts are so
general that some have philosophically
suggested that we aro passing thru
an epoch of "Wild Cat" societies.
Tho latest born of these mushroom
organizations is tho "Wooden Sphinx."
To such a degree of obscurity has this
fanaticism of chartering new orders
crazed people that tho records of an
tiquity lack sufficient wlerd titles to
christen them all.
No sane person will criticise a lim
ited number of sensible organizations
organizations which have a definite,
Instlng, vital purpose. A few compre
hensive, stable societies among tho
students aro Imperative.
They organize, crystallzo and ce
ment the diversified, interests of the
University. ' But to overdo this, as It
has been done recently, is farcial and
It Is gonorally acknowledged by the
moro conservative element that such
ephemoral institutions aro clogs In
stead of motors of progress, and their
burlesquoness is tho sport of sober
minds. For a few blunt visioncd indl-
Wo claim to be the beat GLEANERS and DYERS In Lincoln and
aro here to prove It Our methods and machinery aro tho VERY
LATEST and our workmen the best that money can secure.
We clean the finest drosses and? robes without danger of fading
or shrinking and guarantee not to injure them In any way. Wo also
clean gentlemen's clothing of all kinds. Goodtt called for and deliv
ered. All goods thoroughly sterilized. We do altering and repairing.

Bill 348. Auto 3881
Tho preliminary vote for the elec
tion of the officers of the Y. W.C. A.
I. for the coming year will be taken
Thursday, February 14. All Y. W.
girls are asked to drop their ballots
In the box In the Y. W. rooms that
day, stating thereby their choice In
the selection of officers. Only the oije
day will bo given for this,
altruism, then enter untlilnklngly and
unconcerne'dly into trivial practices
and pastimes from which a really sen
sitive mind would shrink as contain
ing somo Inherent, tho Bcarce defin
able element, perhaps of tho non-ethical?
Whatever be tho answer to that
question, no one, .when.. brought to
consider the small things of a dally
life, will deny their Importance.
Smoking is u small thing. It will
not kill you, unless you smoke too
much, the evil effects are scarcely
noticed as you go along and from tho
process you gain considerable physi
cal enjoyment. So, It Is simply a mat
tor of exchange,. A man gives up
a small part of his better spiritual
and Intellectual llfe for the sake' of, a
few moments physical gratification.
He knows nicotine hurts him, tho he
may not feel It now; It was told hlra
at his mother's knee; It was proved
to him In the' class room; Jt was, dem
onstrated to him about half an hour
vlduals to plunge Info an agreement
which Is as undellberately broken as It
Is made is a more gravo offence
against society than the immortalized
"Sin of Ingratitude."
' A SENIOR.
Thoedltors are much aggrieved to
think anyone's apprehensions should
bo stirred over tho birth of the
"Wooden Sphinx." Allow us to de
claro at once that the "Wooden
Sphinx" Is, and has over been, merely
a creation of imagination.
