Board Elects New Businesa-'ManagQr
and Editor.
At tho meotlng of tho Student Pub
lication Board yesterday afternoon the
resignations trom tlio "Dally Nobraskan
staff of M. A. MJlls, oditor-ln-chlef, C.
E. Elliott, managing editor, and H. C.
Itobertsop, business manager, were ac
cented. These reslKnatlons will take
effect at the cIobo of the present se
mester. W. R. King was elected to succeed
Mr. Mills as editor-in-chief and George
M. Wallace was chosen for tho posi
tion of business manager.
The Nebraskan is badly In need of
competent newspaper men now, and
any student who aspires to become a
Horace Greeley may secure work on
the best college dally In tho West as a
good starter.
The position of managing editor and
associate editors will bo filled later by
An Innovation.
Before his class in European history
ProfeBBor F. M. Fllngyesterday intro
duced an Innovation which greatly en
hanced the interest In the work. Tho
subject of the regular lecture vnfs"Mo
dleval Architecture." To give prac;
tical Illustrations of the development
of the Gothic principle, Prof. Fling util
ized a large number of steroptlcan
views of French structuroB. In his ac
companying talk he pointed out tho im
portant features.
Prof Fling 8tatedi prior to his lec
ture that It was a fault of this uni
versity that no proper place had been
provided for using a steroptlcan In
.connection with a "lecture which re
quires note taking by students. A
largo room should bo equipped with
electric lights so that those could be
switched on or off as the use of tho
machine demanded.
After tho show or party just drop
into the Boston Lunch for a sandwich
and a oup of coffee or an oyster stew.
"You Never Can Tell" is a Good Type
of the Modern Play.
Sometime ago the Dally Neoraskan
printed an article In regard to (he pro
gress of the American stage, In which
It was stated that tho opinion of ranny
of the leading critics ngree that it is
up to the Universities of the country
to set a high standard of plays for
the public. Of course It Is preposter
ous to suppose that collego people can
play aB well as professionals, but they
can at least get at the fundamental
principles of dramatic art, and Instead
of catering to the cheap melodrama of
the times, they can .pick out deeper
No better case of this principle can
be found than in the University of Chi
cago, where for the past season "they
of isben, Shaw;, Materjhn,jdrnany
have been playing representative plays
other of the modern draniatlsts. Theqe
plays are put on with as much sincer
ity and earnestness as any phase tin
collego life for the modern writers
Biich as arc classed with the above
j men, are -all -writers on the deepest
.and mpst important subjects of the
ago. It Is to them thai the world has
been looking for ideas. In fact many
educators, agree that the cause of ho
recent renaissance In thought andjthe
awakening of tho public conscience
even In America Is duo to the Influence
of Isben and of the dramatists -who
have followed In his footsteps.
Bernard Shaw ranks with the high
est of this school; and we may be
particularly intereste'd In him, since ho
Is the only one among them that
writes in the English language. If there
is one thing he can standi for supreme
ly it is his remarkable humor, but in
all his plays he has a sincere purpose
at hand. Tho play MYou can never
Toll," is perhaps his most unimportant
play In that regard, for it was written'
chiefly to get the effect 6f brlljlancy
but oven In It you can see the careful-
