.n.ocQflfllty , of an academic training for
.a high .quality of work in tho special
.coljcgps, and aro making creator do
mands for tho preliminary training of
tho students. For several yoars tho
requirements for admission to -many
of- Nebraska's sister stato Insti
tutions have boon moro exacting
than those at Nobraska and a higher
value has been placed on tho educa
tion of tho graduates from thoso
Hchools. It is an undonfablo fact that
two or throo years' academic training
bottor fits a Btudent to lncreaso tho
quality of his special work, whether
that bo law or medicine.
Dean Georgo P. CoBtlgan of the Ne
braska law college has scon tho no
coslsty of raising tho admission re
quirements to tho law department of
this unlvorslty If Its placo among tho
law Bchools of tho country Is to bol

Nobraska law college requirements bo
Increased to ono year of collego work.
His report reads in part as follows:
"It is belioved that tho time has
come for raising still further the
ontranco requirements of tho college
of law. Our feollng, constantly bolng
strengthened, has boon that tho qual
ity of our work can be lncreasod only
by roqulrlng a bottor preliminary edu
cation on tho part of our studonts,
somo of 'whom each year of tholr own
accord loavo us to tako college work
before completing tholr law course.
Tho requirements for admission to tho
collego of law now call for the four
years' high school course, but In my
judgment thoy should bo increased to
ono year of oollego work to take offect
two or three years in tho future. That
thiB rccommondatlon is in lino with
tho development of other law schools
Is apparent from tho fact that Illinois,
Minnesota, Texas and Washington
stato universities have taken action,
to go Into effect in 1909 or 1910, which
will require tho equivalent of ono yoar
In collego for tholr law degree. Tho
faculty of tho University of Michigan
has also unanimously recommended
such action. It 1b now before tho
board of regents for consideration.
HE WHO KNOWS WEARS

goes to show that an Increase in en
trance requirements haB only a tem
porary effect on law school attend

HELD LARGE MEETING
AMERICAN ASSOCIATION FOR AD
t '.VANCEMENT OF SCIENCE.
ADDRESS Of DR. C. E. BESSEY
Head of Nebraska .Botanical Depart
ment Delivered One of the. Prin
cipal Addresses Before the
Tho American Association for tho
Advancement of Science met Decom
bor 8, 1908, to January 4, 1908, in Bal
timore Md professors of tho Univer
sity of Nobraska wore In attendance
at the sessions of tho association and
ono of tho principal addresses made
l)oforo the botanical soction was that
of Di Charles E. Bessoy as retiring
president of that division of tho po
Probably 2000 of tho 6,000 members
of tho assoclatloiNwere prosent at tho
meeting in Baltimore, Tho leading
mombors of nil sclontlfia professions
attended and tholr presencbsalded in
making tho sessions notabloNThls
year mariteu tno sixtieth anniversary
ui iuu iiiak illuming ui mu uuuiuiy
which has over Bince its organization
been a potent factor in the scientific
progress of tho country.
In addressing the botanists, Dr.
Bossoy took a radical stand on certain
points of question in regard to tho
proper classification of plantB. His
address was considered to bo most
striking from a scientific point of view
nnd was of interest to all of tho 150
botanists In attendance.
Dr. Besaey'a Address.
Speaking on tho topic, "The Phylotlc
Idea In Taxonomy," Dr. Bossoy argued
that since nil botanists aro evolution
iBts thoy should recognize this prin
ciple In tholr classification of plants.
No botnniBt now considers a species
to be a separate or special creation,
but gather a more or less distinguish
able variation from somo other form.
With a practical agreement among
botanlBts it needs no extended argu
ment to show that a natural classifi
cation must bo aa expression of a
theory of evolution. Several theories
as to tho relationship and classifica
tion of plants were criticized for their
failure to -take practical cognizance of
tho doctrines of evolution. It waB
further urged that no theory of classi
fication should stand in its entirety
after tho theory of evolution upon
which It is based has experienced any
modification. The two must be changed
simultaneously, for they aro partB of
a common systom.
Tho principal features of tho theory
of evolution so foas they bear upon
taxonomy wore enumerated In fifteen
"dlcta,' somo of which are as follows:
Lowor plants came into existence
first; higher plants sprang from the
lower; higher plants nro mora com
plex than tho lower; o volution is not
always upward, but ofteninvolves deg
radation nnd degeneration; retrogres
sion once set in usually persists, and 1b
not followed by a progression; all
llant relationships are genetic; plants
are related up and down the genetic
After brlofly describing the, gjjat
groups (phyla) into which plants may
bo classified, beginning with the sim
plest sllmo-algao and ending with the
flowering plants, Dr. Bessey discussed
the origin of tho latter from the cyc
ads.and held that buttercups, roses
and similar plants must havo been tho
earliest types, contrary to the prevail
ing view that tho apetalous families
aro primitive. From tho buttercup
type there sprang throe diverging
lines, ono running through lilies and
Irises' nnd culminating In tho orchids,
unomor running through pinks, prim
roses and phloxes and. culminating .In
BlV " Cellege

thcNmints, while the third, running
throughvroses, myrtles and umbel
worts, reaches Its culmination In tho
great sunflower, family, tho highest
point attained inho Vegetable King
dom. The Majestic.
Manager Gorman of tho Majestic
suroly picked a bunch of stellar attrac
tions when ho selected this week's
bill for tho Majestic. He has secured,
without doubt, the best lino of acts
that has been presented at tho vaude
ville house this season. All of the
program made a hit with tho first
nighters at tho performance last even
ing nnd the actors were tho recipients
of more applause than any perform
ers havo received at tho. Majestic for
many a week.
Georgo Hillman and his eight Red
path Napanees, were listed as tho
headliners, but thoy wero compelled
to share first honors with Mr. and
Mrs. McGreevey, musical entertainers,
Tho Redpath actors presented an ox
tromenly funny act called "Fun in a
School Room." It was funny, too. The
act was made very pleasing by the
presence of a pretty girl in the .chorus,
who made a hit with tho audience.
An automobile stunt by Lavlno and
Leonard mado the Lincoln owners of
autos who wore present last night
hold their sides with laughter. It is a
vehicle that Is an extraordinary en
tertainer. Other good numbers on tho bill are
Homer Lind and company, in "Tho
Opera Singer;" Fritz Houston, car
toonist; Tho Great Kinker, contortion
ist; and Julian nnd Ryer, "In Stunts
"Dolly Primrose" is the offering at
the Lyric. It Is aB popular as the play
of last week.
