Entered at the postofflao at Lincoln,
Nebraska, as second-class mall matter
under tho Act of Conirress of March 3.
A royiow of somo of the things ac
complished at Nebraska durlqg the
yoar 1907-08 rovoals tho fact that tho
institution 1b making wonderful pro
gress. In a material way there have been
added Bovoral new buildings, both on
tho campuB and at the Farm. The
new Temple building in particular has
added so much to tho life of the stu
dents that many who wore skeptical
about accepting the gift from Mr.
Rockofollor now look at the matter
favorably. Wo are Boon to have an
engineering building that will make
room for the great number of hereto
fore crowded students of this depart
ment. Tho now historical library, too,
while not on the campus, will be a
groat addition to tho University. The
Museum has boon re-installed in very
respectably quartors that promlBQ 9
Increase as room is needed. At the
Farm the now domestlo science build
ing represents a great triumph for
thopo who have worked so hard toward
this end. And noxt year we are to
have a College of Education, which
will add greatly to tho strength of the
These, and many minor improve
ments, havo all come within the last
year. But there are otherB no less
important. Fraternity life haB been
improved by the inter-fraternity coun
cil. Somo of the bad features of room-lng-houBo
life Twyo been .abolished.
The University, after years of dllatorl
ness, has been living up to tho law
this yoar and now furnishes books
to tho students "at wholesale pricos,
plus a reasonable cost for handling."
Athletics have been put under a busi
ness management which accounts to a
representative board of faculty and
students. And finally there Is to bo
a now system of registration, seek
ing to leave tho choice of each half
year's work with the individual stu
dent, but advising and limiting hlnf
and giving him tho opportunity to
consider the matter three months be
fore finally making h)s choice.
These advances in equipment and
mothodB indicate beyond a doubt
which way the University of Nebras
ka is moving. Somo of the men who
havo done most ior tho school can re
member when the enrollment was not
over flvo hundred. In view of tho ad
vances that have been made under
these men, who will attempt to pre
dict tio progress of our University in
tho future? Already its graduates are
a powor in the state and each year
displaces the old skeptical forces on
educational matters with those whose
young energy and determination is
devoted to tho cause of hlgner educa
tion. The University's growth will bo
a geometrical progression.
To our Chancellor and Board of Re
gents, those members of tho faculty
whp'haxe done bo much for young No
braslca, and those citizens with whom
the University is an intimate interest,
this" growth ought to be a source of
great, gratification. State institutions
Of learning are taking the educational
scepter and to those who guide Ne

Women and Government
That the women at Nebraska are
taking an increasing interest in public
affairs is evidenced not only In the
new Equal Suffrage Club, but In the
records of tho Political Science de
partment aB well. This department
has been in existence but two years.
The first semester of last year but
four of every twenty-two students In
the department were women; and the
second semester flvo of each twenty.
The first semester this year the pre
centago was twejvo put of forty, and
this semester fourteen to forty-seven.
In other words, the percentage of
women In the department haB In
creased from 18 to 30 In two years.

When the students return to school

will bo some consolation In the fact
that a new engineering building will
be partially constructed, which will
be a credit to Nebraska.
