more probable that It will advance in

appropriation for thnt purpose out of

harmless athletic contest. Really, the
reverse ought to bo true. and the two
classes should be brought closer in

The great roaBon for the strained
relations between tho fraternities, as
a class, and the non-fraternity men,
as a class,-, Is thai neither side has
tried to put itself closer to the other.
And for th.U) condition the non-fraternity

Sheldon Recommends Liberal Appro

In his message to tl.o ' thirty-first
session of tho Nebraska legislature
Retiring Governor George L. Sheldon
spoke for a better 8tato university
In the following wordB:
"You havo every reason to bo proud
of our great state university. Tho
state has profited much through the
higher education that has been af
forded through it to tho young men
and women. While at times it may
have seemed to some that tho cost of
building up tho university was con
siderable, I feel you will agree with
me that that cost has been well worth
tho whilo. Wo should not forget
that some members of tho faculty,
who aro classed among the best edu
cators of this country, through loyalty
and dovotion to tho university, have
remained at a much ' dmaljer salary
than they could havo commanded if
they had accepted offers from other
co'mpnny. His present position gives
him supervision of large telephonic in
terests throughout the state of Ne
