THE "HOOP."
Tho other' day floated In a sound
lllto the faint tinkling of a sheep boll
from a far green hill, just that softly
and pleasantly, you know, and inter
portod, It ran, "Tho Nobraskan staff
has Jumpotl thru tho hoop; ha, the No
braskan staff has Jumped thru the
hoop."
In ono aspect, this might give some
body a swift pain, hut wo prefer tho
funny side of It. Now tho UiughnlUo
part HeH not In tho conception of the
jumping, but In tho holding, once con
ceive of tho hoop, and it 1b easy to fig
ure In tho jump, but, oh, tho hoop!
one may have tho ability to fun a class
and may possess an appalling amount
of knowledge, yet not be overly bur
dened with a real personality. But
even such people have their usefulness,
nnd wo shall get what we have come
for, presumably, by taking In recep
tive spirit what' they have for us and
paying no heed to the superfluous rot. j
And further, even If there bo two or '
three such whom wo do not like aro wo
forwlth to shy at all tho rest of tho
body of Instructors?
Wo wish to say right here (and no
body gave us a quarter to do It, either)
that some of tho strongest, broadest,
and most nearly real men are to bo
found on the faculties of our colleges
nnd universities. And we can get at
the real meaning of education only so
far as wo get truth In sympathy with
these men.
Tliero Is hero nt Nebraska altogether
tod much of a spirit on the part of
some to stand back and eye tho fac
ulty with suspicion as 'if they feared
getting their head into a halter. Of
courses, we are young and skittish yet,
but one of these days wo shall grow
up, maybe, and then wo shall look
notions and smile.

' What have wo hero, anyway? A lot
of grade-school children regarding tho
teacher as a master and education as
an oxorciso? Are wo hero becauso
papa and mamma sent us to undergo a
cruel course thru starch and rollers In
order that thereby wo might get some
thing of a gloss put on? And so, do wo
fel tho moment wo cease struggling
tho It may be, to this process, that
wo aro surrendering our manliness
and womanliness, and conducting our
selves nfter tho .manner of whipped
puppies? It Is natural to feel some
thing of an antipathy toward those
setting a task for us; nobody enjoys
tho bidding to go to work. But tho ab
surdity comes in just when we consid
er our education a series of set tasks
and our faculty an aggregation over
ijs with tho solo purpose of seeing
that certain Instructions nre fulfilled.
. Now, of course, there are in every
school somo two or three professors
who like to run things, tfnfortunatoly,

the foreman of the Apprenticeship De
partment of tho Westlnghouse Elec
tric & Manufacturing Co. of that place
is ready to take In as many of our
engineers for tho two years apprentice
ship course as tho department can rec
cominend. Ho considers that tho train
ing given at this Institution leaves
nothing to be desired, and says ho' Is
only too glad to speak a good word for
the Nebraska engineers.
The Kansan says that the Jay
hawker team which was defeated here

to tho unfavorable condition under
which they played," a .result of their
late arrival in Lincoln and consequent
lack of time to get properly prepared
for thq game.
