It Ib a safo bot at almost any oddB
that tho tiling moat studiod by uni
versity students yesterday was tho
genoral election of national and local
officials. In ovory class and whorover
a group of men happened to got to
gothor daring tho day tho topic of dis
cussion was invariably tho olectlon.
Numbers of tho men had a direct In
terest Iri tho selection of tho loadora
who are to govern tho nation on ac
count of thbir right of franchise. t)th
ors were Interested becauso they real
ized that hefore another four years
have brought around another genoral
olectlon they, too, will have acquired
tho privilege of voUng. Tho girlB
wore Interested because tho rest were.
All In all, class work took a decided
slump yesterday, both morning and
afternoon. Numbors of the students
were at home in various parts of tho
state casting their ballots and many
others, who had established residence
In Lincoln, were obliged to miss one
or more classes In order to vote. A
fow of the most ardent politicians
wore actively engaged throughout tho
day In hustling tho voters" of the city
to the voting booths.
Instructors generally recognized the
intense interest which prevailed by
dealing leniently with absentees and
quite a number assigned brief lessons
In order that their studentB jnlght
have more time to vote and to watch
tho returns In tho ovonlng. In one
class where tho regular assignment
was given out at tho closo of the class,
tho Instructor reduced It to one-third
tho uBual amount on being reminded
that yesterday was election day. It
was well that some instructors acted
thus since in all probability thero was
little studying done by a majority of
tho students last oyonlng. Thero was
tho excitement of a four-yearly crisis
Mn the air and. -the university students
felt It aB much as did the town voters.
While largo numbors wont homo to
vote thero "were qujto a number who
did their duty and yot managed to
stay in Lincoln by palrjng'off with an
other mn who would have voted on
tho opposite side of tho ticket If ho
had caBt his' ballot In this way tho
voters saved tho expense' of a trip
home and at tho samo time made suro
that tho Iosb of their vote would not
hurt either of tho two parties.
It was by some such an arrange
ment as this that Captain Harvey of
the football team an Bill Chaloupka,
both from Wilbur, had intended to
stay In Lincoln, yesterday. rBut Jim
couldn't roBt in peace while thinking
of how Taft might lose tho election
from lack of his vote. Hence, about

station without letting his fellow
townsman, who is a Bryan follower,
know his intention. He boarded tho
train 'all right and chuckled over tho
way In which ho had won a vote for

But Jim didn't quite credit Bill with
as much worldly wisdom as the husky

dust fly In his frantic endeavors to

He did a stunt that

Thoro are sonio Taft men in Coach

tho result shall be, tho disappointment
of, tho boaten ones will not be allowod
to -hurt-tho Cornhuskor play.

OUR CITY GOVERNMENT 18 POOR.
Interference In Municipal Affairs by
Organization of Nation and State
"I havo often hoard it said," de
clared Arthur Weathorly at convo
cation yesterday, "that tho city
is a Joint Btock company In which
the citizens nro tho stockholders, but
I moBt omphatlcally dony thlB. Tho
metaphor totally falls. Tho city Is a
dwelling together of human bolngs ln
which every man gives somothlng to
tho city that all may onjoy groator
advantages. Now York City Is not, In
tho trtio-BonBO of tho word, a city, but
It Is rntner an aggregation of Indi
viduals. "Tho real City has an atmosphoro
which expresses unity of purpoBo and
unity of lire. This Is tho only kind of
a community from which can como
great genius and great art The fact
that in 150 years Athens gavo to tho
world five immortals resulted from
the porfect unity of action ln tho city
and from the fact that all wero movod
by a common purpose In the me
devlal cities tho spirit and art which
was tho glory of tho world was de
veloped by tho same means.
"In order for the city 'to attain to the
highest, degree of ofllcloncy It muBt
express ovory phase of tho city's or
ganic life. Tho end and aim of tho
organization of the modern city should
be to obtain unity of organization,
which means tho development of unity
of life. When tho city owns tho -water

ment ln America, and we can give
several 'reasons for tho inofflclonpy of
our governments. First nmong'thoBO
may do considered the Interference of
,tho state and of national politics.
Very few cities are permitted to do
anything that Is not specially stated
in tho charter. Another reason for
our failure was tho attempt to mako
the form of government which was
satisfactory for the nation do for the
"In. municipal gerernmont, as it has
existed for tho past, responsibility
has not been centered where it should
be. English municipalities have ar
rived at a high degree of efficiency and
responsibility wlthoutrthe intorforenco
of the nation, and with the use of
wards for the election of city officers.
I am in favor of the commission form
of government, becauso it places tho
responsibility upon tho people them
selves. It puts tho matter of good
government up to the peoplo, and-with
this situation we can develop unity of
action, out of which will como a higher
development of art and a higher sys
tem of Ideals."
