In urging all students to go to this

of tho school. It ought to be a privilege
oagerly sought to be permitted to hear
such a thing as an Intercollegiate de

liant oratory, the most concise and
powerful atatemont of a great public
question that a largo university can
boast, ought to ho a thing that would
bo a true ploasuro to a serious minded
student; to one who Is at the univer

This Is what an Inter-colleglato debato

WRITES AN ARTICLE FOR FORUM.
Dr. Maxey Discusses Election of
United States Senators.
In the December numTfer of The
Forum appears an article entitled
"The Election of United States Sen
ators." by Professor Edwin Maxey or
the college or law.
In his article, which covers a little
over three pages, Dr. Maxey takes up
briefly the history or the question and
the methods or election oy direct pri
maries In somo of the states. He
takes the stand that our present sys
tem or senatorial election is a relic
which has outlived Its usefulness. He
To do away with the use of hacks
at university dances, including the
rormal affairs or the different soror-1
itles and fraternities was the object j
of a movement recently started by a
number of the members of the Girls' j
Pan-Hellenic congress. At the next
meeting, which takes place In the near
future, the question will come up, a
motion being put that girls refuse
to go In hacks to the dances.
Of vital importance to the recent
reforms which have been passed In
the university, considerable opposition
will no doubt arise to tho proposed
changes. The custom or taking hacks
to the university dances is not to be
swept away so lightly, Tor there are
many students in school who would
view the proposed change with deris
ion. It has been the custom Tor years
for students to take hacks to all of
the fraternity or sorority parties, to
the senior and to tho Junior proms.
An Expensive Necessity.
The man who Is Invited to many
forjnals during tl.ie school year ilnds
his pocketbook pretty well depleted
at the end of the school year by the
needless expense which society and
custom has placed upon him. To the
man who is working his way through
college, such affairs at the university
are denied and as dancing Is about the
only amusement or diversion of the
students, he is practically prevented
from taking part in social gatherings.
Taking the average membership or
tne fraternities as a basis it Is saro to
estimate that never has a formal party
been given whore the cost for hacks
alone does not amount to close to $l0.
Some times this Item of expense runs
close to $100. With twenty such par
ties In a year the cost or hacks for
fraternities and sorority parties alone
will exceed $1.."00. Where the most
money Is spent for hacks, though, Is
at the junior and senior proms. The
hack lines do a land otllc'e business
and the receipts from these two dances
will reach close to $f00. Thus, of the
$8,00 spent for university dances (ex-

of the faculty have expressed them
selws as extremely favorable to tho
proposed change, and view it as one of
the best reforms that lias come up for
consideration in some time.
Providing that a motion is passed

body to request that they give their
hearty support to one debate a year.
The expanse Is trilling but the good
to tho university Is enormous. A
great dobate Is the highest expression
of tho serious side of school life, It Is
tho supreme test of a person's ability
to think clearly and quickly and ac
curately, It Is because of this that It
deserves the support of every student.
The debate which will take place
tonight In Memorial hall Is a light for
victory between the University of Ne
braska and the University of Illinois.
It Is jiiBt as great an honor to win
and just as bad to lose a contest of
this kind as it is tho greatest football
game, and tho result will have even
more significance to the thinking peo
ple of the state. If tho students at
Nebraska do nflt give their hearty
support to a thing of this kind it will
carry an Impression throughout the
state that will not bo beneficial, to say
The final reason why the students
should turn out in force tonight is be
cause a debate of this kind Is very ex
pensive and is Impossible without ade
quate financial support. It is very
expensive for a team to come as far
as it is necessary for the Illinois team
to como and-it Is very expensive for
our own team to go to Wisconsin.
These expenses must be mot, and they
compares It with the method of elect
ing representatives, showing that the
election of tho house Is attended by
fewer .Inconveniences and better re
sults than the election of senators by
tho legislatures. He enumerates the
reasons favoring the popular election
of senators and shows the evil effects
of the presont system upon the sen
ate, the state legislatures and the peo
ple. In closing Professor Maxey takes up
at some length the methods and pos
sibility of amending the constitution
to provide for the election of senators
by direct vote of the people.
At Michigan they think that the
only men worth mentioning for an

movement result In the doing away
of the custom of taking hacks at uni
versity dances the saving to the stu
dent body would reach upward of
Girls Favor Movement.
It Is thought that additional
strength in the campaign for the aboli
tion of the present system will be add
ed by the fact that a large number
of the girls also favor the proposed
system. Except in rainy or unfavor
able weather, the larger share of girls
would prefer to walk or take a car to
the dance. Last year about this time
a similar movement was started but
after a few weeks it died out and noth
ing' was done to do away with the
system of taking hacks to dances.
However those at the head of the
movement this year Insist that Ahoy
'will see to it themselves that the mat
ter comes up before the girls' Pan
Hellenic congress for consideration.
Just what opposition will develop in
the meantime is uncertain.
In addition to receiving tho support
of the student body at large, tho plan
to do away with hacks for dances has
the hearty support of tho majority of
members of the faculty, .who look upon
the present custom as a useless ex-
