THE MA88MEETINQ. If the atudonts at Nebraska Uni versity wish to show whore they stand on the question of the liquor traffic they now have the chance. Today's Convocation 1b solely tho result of student sentiment and the belief that this sentiment ought to be more wide ly known In Lincoln and over the state. An educational institution ought to stand for a clean community in which it is located. The old argument that prohibition will not accomplish this result is mere pandering with tho is sue and particularly in a city like Lin ing election. There can be no ques tion as to tho answer. A Nebraska caso directly in point has been construed by two members of the law faculty as permitting but a very small number to vote. The decision in this cubo reads: "The rule Is well established that a student who goes to a college town with the intention of remaining there simply as a student and only until his education Is completed and who does not change his intention, doeB not ac quire a residence there and retains the domicile of his origin. He must in order to gain residence have no other place to go in caso of sickness." Again In tho same case: "A person who comes to the seat of the University mainly for the purpose of gaining an education, if not dependent upon his parents for support 'and Is accustomed to leave the University during vaca tion is entitled to vote at the seat of the University. Clearly, there are very few men who can conscientiously All all of these re quirements, and no student ought to let his enthusiasm for a good cause in fluence him to swear to a He in order to help tho cause along. But we can be a help in the campaign by 'showing that wo want Lincoln clean and that we think that making it dry will do a great deal toward accomplishing that rosult Education and culture stand for nothing consistent with the liquor traf fic and when the students of an educa tional institution are so directly affect ed there is all tho more reason for a strong and determined effort to do away with an evil that is undermining the lives of so many young men. Advertising in college journals has undergone quite a change in the last few years. This is nowhere more no ticeable than In the Dally Nebraskan. Now is the Time We sold thousands of dollars worth at our big auc tion, but still have many beautiful pieces of jewelry and silver and they go at actual cost until April 1st., when the remodeling of our room commences. HALLETT, Jeweler, 1143 0 Street coin, where tire-intemperance of so many young students, due to public drinking houBos would be practically done, away wlthby killing the-saloon. A prominent member of the Faculty who is in a position to know, made the statement yesterday that one-third of the male students of this university go into saloons. A big majority of these are young fellows who have learned to drink un der tho tutelage of older students. They are away from homo and their associates easily influence them into going to the saloons by example which would not be possible even though liquor was obtainable in a more un lawful and difficult way. Not even the advocates of license among the students can deny that the student body would be materially benefitted in this respect by prohibition. Why then, shouldn't the student body express its sentiment in the matter? The students' of Illinois were able to considerably Influence the city elections without voting, but- merely by taking a definite stand for a dry town, There has' been some discus sion as to whether the students ought to register in order to vote in the com- Nebraskan advertisers have almost passed the stage of the stereotyped "ad" boastfully declaring some gener ality about quality of goods and econ omy of price, as a glance at our col umns will show. Lincoln merchants are paying as much attention to tho advertisements they write for these columns as to those they write for the larger dailies. It has not been an un common thing to find an advertise ment run in the Nebraskan one day and duplicated the next in one of the down-town papers, following in detail the "set-up" of the Nebraskan. Does advertising in a college paper pay ? Lincoln merchants no longer ask this question in regard to the Daily Ne braskan. In the old days it was often necessary for the advertising solicitor to get his "ads" by advancing a charity plea. The adyertiser was told that he helping support a good cause, that the University brought a large amount of trade to Lincoln and therefore he should help out student enterprises. No Buch thing now-a-days. Advertis ing is solicited only on the merits of the Daily Nebraskan as an advertising medium and tho Lincoln merchants are not slow to realize that their ad vertisements are being read with the same bargain-hunting zeal as those in the city papers. for young men we present without exception - - ' " ' !
