The crowded condition in classes in

sizes tho fact that Nebraska is grow
ing too faBt for Us accommodations.
Its quarters are too small to take care
of the Increasing number of students
who como hero each year. Within a
few years, -Jf tho present Btream of
freshmen continues to pour into this
university, thoro will have to bo an
extensive expansion In the way of now

alternative is for the regents to order

NOT ALL TREACHEROUS
JUDQE N0RRI8 DEFEND8 THE FIL
OPPOSE EARLY INDEPENDENCE
Declares the Dominant Qovernment li
for the First Time In History
Bearing Burdens of the
Wo are in tho PhlMpplnes to bear
the white man's burden. For the first
tlmo In our hlfltory the American
school teacher, and missionary works
sldo by side with the government For
tho first time in the history of the
world tho dominant government is
boarlng tho burdens of tho serving
cIobs." Thus declared Judgo W. F.
NorriB in a scholarly address at chapel
yesterday. Continuing his address he
spoke as follows: "What shall wo do
with the Philippines Is tho question
which waB askod in 1898 and the same
quoHtion Is still beforo the American
people. Some people say, "Lot us sell
tho Islands," others say, "Let us trado
them for something more valuable,"
and still others say, "Let us keep
them." Wo must, at least keep the
Philippines until we have fitted them
Opposed to Japanese.
"As soon as It was reported that the
United StatoB might sell the IslandB to
tho Japanese a storm of protest
at once aroso among tho FillplnoB. The
Filipinos do not wish to come under
tno control of tho Japanese for many
reasons. In the llrst place tho Japan
ese government Is an absolute mon
archy and tho Filipinos look toward ul
timate Independence. The Japanese
are a non-Christian people and the Fil
ipinos are a Christian people.
"Judgo Norrls declared that he
wished to remove some of the false im
pressions about the Philippines. Al
though tho question has been dJscuBBed
for so many yonrs the Americans do
not seem to have a much clearer Idea
of tho nature of the Philippines than
they had in 1638. In some discussions
of subject the Fllllplno Is painted as
having a treacherous and decietful
character. In others hlB character Is
painted all white. Now tho truth of
tho matter Is that tho FUllpinos are
very much like other peoplo, neither
all black nor all white. Men find
others to be a good deal as they treat
A Composite People.
"Wo are not holding the Philippines
space will put you wise
againBt the consent of tho people. It Is.
utterly wrong to say that the FUll
pinos, as a people, desire any one
thing. Tho Filliplnos are a composite
people with vastly different ideas and
desires. Some FUllpinos desire imme
diate independence, others desire that
the United States shall hold the Is
lands until they reach tho point where
they are capable of governing them
selves. Some desire protection for the
Christian religion, some des'lr'e protec
tion for Mohammedlsm, the men in the
lowlands desire protection froni the
raids of the mountaineers, the men liv
ing in the mountains desire protection
from the exortlon of the men In the
lowlands. .Under these circumstances
it is Impossible to say that any one
thing is desired by the FUllpinos.
Native Government Bad.
It is sometimes said that if the
American government v&hould be with
drawn, the Philippine government
would fall Into, the hands of an edu
cated oligarchy which would bo. as
good for the people as an American
oligarchy. While It may be true that
tho government would come Into the
hands of the educated classes it is not
true that this would insure a good gov
ernment The educated FUllpinos are
a very different sort of peoplo from
the educated Americans. The schools
of Manila turn out an entirely different
person than such colleges as the Uni
versity of Nebraska.
"Tho great landowners of the Is
lands make their own laws and by
means of their bands of retainers force
the carrying out of their commands.
The whole race is not treacherous' or
deceitful, but by far too many people
are of such character." -

reads as follows:

reflect tho will of tho peoplo.
3. We hold that It is tho right and
the duty of the peoplo to rebuke party
leaders when they allow political or
ganizations to be influenced by con
siderations of private interest
4. In the exercise of this right and
duty we express our intention to vote
for candidates who are pledged to fur

At the University of Nebraska every
candidate fora class office Is required
by the university rules to announce
himself a stated time in advance of
the election. The date of the election
is known a considerable time in ad
vance, and by this means every mem
ber of the class has a chance to take
part In the election and to know just
what he is doing. Here at tho Uni
versity of Kansas, the "old school" of
politics still flourishes, with packed
caucuses, "dark horses," and hurried
elections, and the trail of the gum
shoe Is over It all. Whether this Is
tho best political training that can be
given men who are expected after they
leave the university to play the game
of politics Under the most enlightened
primary and election laws of any state
In thq country may well be doubted.
