Nebraska, as second-class mall matter
under the Act of Congress of March 3.
There are two points of view from
which to judge a course that of the
professor and that of the student. The
best course is usually one on which
both parties concerned most nearly
agree as to the value of the work. Stu
dent rarely believe in the great impor
tance of one particular line of work
and attribute such alleged differences
to the swollen importance of tho in
structor. There are a good many people in
school who never take an Interest in
anything outside of class work and who
Who are the "flunkera?" One class
of them is composed jof the underclass
men who never fall to attend tho first
performance of the week at every ten
cent thater In town, who know before
tho year is well begun whero the best
pool hall or bowling alley Is or who
have begun to cultivate the gentleman
habit at one of the city saloons. An
other class is composed of those short
lived individuals who are "finishing"
with us. Some of those society people
go to more dances than classes at
which they are " actually able to
recite intelligently. They fall simply
because what brains they have are de
voted to purposes other than those for
which the school is run. A third class
of Hunkers and tho most harmful to
the Interests of the institution is the
upperclaBB flunker; for he not only
does damage to himself but sets a low
standard for those who should look up
to him as an example. He stays in
rfohool simply because his deluded par
ents furnish the money.
It is the constant effort of the au
thorities to get these Hunkers either
in or out of school, yet they havo nev
er fully succeeded. How any man or
woman can fail to pass in a subject is
beyond comprehension. It doesn't
take even the average amount of
brains; it doesn't even necessitate
"hot air slinging." Just a little inter
est and attention is all that is needed,
yet oven this is Impossible when a stu
dent is more interested in vaudeville
Lat the Lyric than school work. Pros
perity and the chance to spend money
in a town the size of Lincoln is getting
to be a curse to the student body.

From every source comes the infor
mation that there is a great troat in

No student in the University should ! 7, at the Temple in the Power's illus
fail to hear Dr. Powers of Boston, In trated lectures. Professor Dann says
his wonderful Interpretation of art at of him: "Professor Powers has the
the Temple on Wednesday, Friday and ' ra,e Gift of seizing the essential thing
In a work of art and making It clear
to his audience. Especially does this
ability to reveal' hidden meanings
como out in his lectures on Michel
angelo. For most of us, the great ar
tist, solitary, silent, and profound,
needs just such an interpreter as Pro
fessor Powers." Great credit is due
tho Nebraska Art Association for
bringing Dr. Powers here. Ticket: aro
one dollar for tho three lectures nnd
' may bo had at the Co-op and Universl
! ty book stores. Reserved seats at Cran

politicians who get the plums by pat

may bo a few students who go through
school and end up with a wrlto up In

not as numerous as the men who make
an effort to get acquainted while in

strangers on the bnck. No one resents
being spoken to on tho campus.
Mr. Canlleld, formerly chancellor of
this university, In his report on Eng
lish, and French education, romarks
, that tho test of scholarship in schools
of different grades are Knowledge for
secondary schools, Power in the Uni
versity and Promise in post graduate
work. It sems as though these tests
ought to be exactly reversed. Promise
is an estimable thing in youth but
wo rather expect post graduates to bo
getting at the real thing. Too often
such promise is mere surffice en
thusiasm which is all over when the
desired degree is attained or grows In
to a hobby.
Saturday evenings of this week. It
often happens that the average stu
dent is so burdened with his Universi
ty work and social duties that he feels
compelled to forego any intellectual
treat that may be offered by outside in
terests. This is a mistake. These out
side Interests have a distinct place in
one's education Just as much as the
prescribed courses in the class room.
These illustrated' lectures given under
the auspices of the Nebraska Art As
sociation havo an educational value
not only because of their broad cul
ture along art lines, but also for their
close analyses and the bou'ntjful style
of presentation. Dr. Powers comes to
Lincoln with the strongest possible en
dorsement not from two or three per
