out what the real- sentiment was in
the University In regard to the sa

Some Nebraskais Who have Refused
Scholarship Honor..
At this season of the year elections
to Phi Beta Kappa are being made In'
universities and colleges, the country
over. A University- ofr California
senior has refused the usually coveted
honor because he "did not believe that
it was fairly earned by students In the
general culture colleges, as some of
the courses offered In them were veri
table snaps in comparison with the
work in the engineering colleges."
The Daily Callfornian calls him "the
only one of his kind." A five minutes
scurry around the campus revealed a
number of Nebraska graduates who
have refused the honor, though none
of them for the Bame reason as that
given by the Callfornian.
A partial list of these is as follows:
G. E. Howard, '76; Mrs. G. E. How
ard, '76, nee Miss Alice May Frost;
Chas. N. Little, '79; H. W. Caldwell,
'80; Samuel D. Cox, '80; H. K. Wolfe,
'80; E. P. Unangst, '81; ,and Jay A.
Barret and Hovey Barret, '88. Mr.
Unangst is at present a judge of the
Superior Court at San Luis Obispo,
Cal.; Mr. Little Is professor of civil
engineering in the University of Idaho"
at Moscow; Mr. Cox ,now deceased,
was a well known editor of Nebraska,
at one time editing the Dally Call In
Lincoln and later a paper at MInatare,
Nebraska; while Messrs. Walfe,
Caldwell and Howard are members
of the faculty at Nebraska; Professor
Wolfe being In the department of
Education; Professor Caldwell, head,
of the department of American His
tory, and Dr. Howard, head of the 'de
partment of Political Science and
Three members of Professor Cald
well's class were elected to the so
ciety and all refused, the other two be
ing Samuel D. Cox and Professor
Wolf. Thus the class of 1880 is not
represented in the Phi Beta Kappa
