' .to Make a 8howlng.
Track men are now recovering from
.their seance at Ames last Saturday
and are rounding 'themselves into
shape for, the struggle with the Go
phers day after- tomorrow. It is gen
erally felt that Nebraska has n better
- opportunity to show its ability in the
v coming contest and the members of
the team are .working with genuine
spirit. Not only did' Ames havo the
advantage in superior facilities ' for
traiping, but she had one of the very
)jest teams inJ the Wcdt, this result
, ing from the fact that every spring
the school gets-out no less than three
liundred men, it is,' said, to try out for
positions, on the track and baseball
teams., At Minnesota is a very strong
aggregation aiso;;but .one more nearly
in the claBs with Nebraska. N

in spite of all 'the adverse elements,

To Curry by Machinery.
A currying" machine for horses has
lately been installed at the State
Farm. It runs by electricity and is
giving very good satisfaction. Mr.
Perran says it does the work quickly
and much more thoroly than it can
be dono by hand.
The milking machine placed in the.
dairy farm last .winter has proved a
success, and a largo per cent of the
cows .at the; State Farm are now being

A KEEP "THE IPfttJ; IAT FAT
"HOW THn COLD WORLD FEELS."
Third of the Articles on the 8ubject
by Recent Alumni.
The third of the series on the frig
ldnos8 of the world comes from Mau
rice Benedict, '06, one of "Nebraska's
old star athletes in football, basket
ball and track work. Mr, Benedict
graduated from the forestry course,
but has now gone nfter something that
glitters a little more, so he declares.
He expresses himself as follows:
I might add to the old idoa that tho
world is a "cold place "that nil Is not
gold that glitters," but I beliovo there
is enough of the real thing to go
around so there is no need of worry
ing as to how cold the world is oi
seems to be.
1 have been out of school a year
npw and admit that my ideas of the
world have changed a good deal in
that short time. I don't beliovo I am
an exception because I thought that as
soon as I got out of college some fel
low was waiting to receive me with
open arms in order to make me a suc
cessful man. Perhaps that statement
is a iittle extravagant, but probably
ivd till, have, more or less of jm ego
tistical Btreak in us and perhaps, too,
it Is a good thing to haver-in small
I "believe ar fellow's school life is ohc
of the happiest times of his existence,
for afterwards ho must- enter into real
life and he has qt greater responsibil
ity thrown upoi him for he has a fu
ture. to make, tho importance of which
has never exactly dawned on him bo
fore.r '" That Is getting, off the subject,
I guess. Somehow the, world has not
felt very cold to. me. so fars tho of
course, there are times when a fellow
I have ventured into the mining' in
dustry, and am now seeking earth's,
"golden treasure.' It, has a "wonderful
fascination for one, but most people
(i Nebraska have an idea that the
seeker for gold has as much chance of
finding is at had the olden knights In
their search for the "Holy Grail." To
one who has been west and among
the mountains where men live almost
entirely by the products of the mine,
a new conception pf the Industry
comes. It is clean money and is not
produced at tho expense of others'
No, i am optimistic about tho "cold
world," and hope and believo there is
a place for everybody in its busy life.
At least a fellow can try tp be happy,
and "Tp. be :happy is to be great" so
the sages Jell us.

three times larger than the Depart
ment of Botany at Nebraska and eon-,
ployes Ave professors, whilo Nebraska
has but two. Tho salaries pf the pro
fessors nt Minnesota also are larger
than those at this institution and tho
position which Dr. Clements has; ac
cepted pays him $1,000 more than
he recelyos here. ,
