work of the state.
Tho Nebraskan has been requested
by those In charge of the convocation
exercises to set aside some place
where chapel announcements may bo
made in order that tho students may
always know exactly where to look
'for them. The Nebraskan believes
that chapel should havo more thor
ough support from tho studont body,
and if such action will in any way
help to accomplish this result it will
bo glad to fulfill the request of the
convocation committee. A block will
therefore In the future be placed at

whatever announcement the convoca
tion committee wishes, will be made.

muted than in almost any other lino,
tho unanimous verdict is that Ne
braska graduates are inforior to none
and equalled by few.
The moaning of this is plain: Tho
University of Nebraska is surpassed
by few as an institution whore offlci
ont, capablo graduatos are turned out.
Thoro is a tendenoy at the prosent
timo to feel that the outlook 1b dis
couraging; tho student hesitates to
boldly declare that, for opportunities
to do roal work, tho university is sec
ond to none. This attitude is suicidal,
it is impossible for any institution to
make rapid growth with such a feel
ing, just as It 1b impossible for a
business to succeed when tho em
ployees are shlftlesB or careless.
Tho University of Nebraska Is in
great noed of better physical accom
modations, but yot fine buildings
nover have and never will make a
great unlvorslty and a great student
body. Tho students who come from
Nebraska homes are as intelligent as
any in the world; tho faculty at Ne
braska includes among its numbers
some 'of the most prominent author
ities in tho world and is, as a whole.
as fine ub that of any college in the
country. These two factors contrib
ute in themselves all that is necessary
to make tho University of Nebraska
ono of tho most efficient in tho coun
try. Nebraska needs more buildings and
bettor equipment, but when we are
tempted to complaint, and declare
that the university 1b not what it
Bhould be, it Is well to stop and re
member that we have something in
finitely moro valuable than marble
buildings and sohiothing without

PURDUE HA8 TROUBLES.
While there has been a great deal
of talk at Nebraska about the value
of organizations of different kinds, the
same difficulties and tho same prob
lems are confronting other colleges
that are found acre. Tho Purdue LiX
ponont recently printed an editorial
expressing approval of the fact that
organizations wero becoming fewer
and fewer in that college. Tho edi
torial is as follows:
"LaBt year an address which was
given in Fowler hall lamented tho fact
that there were so many organizations
about the campus and that nothing
outside of them could elst health
fully. The statement was correct, but
now It may bo said that tho other ex
treme seents to have taken Purdue.
There has been tho reaction, and yot
tho students have an abundance to do
to fill their minds. The most notice
able fact has been the practical cessa
tion of tho state clubs. Last year and
the year preceding the ExpononVvWus
filled with notices concerning heet
ings of tho various state clubs. Thls
year these drganlzatlons have taken
a slump, perhaps with tho best results.
Wo do not say that tho meeting of
Ltho men' from the some states is not
a commendable thing and ono in
which the jnen. may find plenty of
bonollt, butitjio permanent orgnniza-
of such is hardly to bo expected
when BlKmany other worthy organiza
tions are about us. The over-organized
conditlonHhen is loosening up so
that work of all Kinds may be more
nearly normal. Thisaffects the wholo
university in a boneficiaKway. Mat
ters seem to move moro smoothly and
wUh less complications. This haVdone
away with tho noed of tho student!
DO PLANT8 HAVE EMOTION?
Eastern Magazine Asks Nebraska Pro
fessor About It.
An 'enterprising eastern magazino
writer 1b interested in a theory lately
advanced In certain quarters that
plants may have emotion. In an at
tempt to discover the majority opinion
on the quostion, he has written a num
ber of tho leading botanical professors
in the country for their opinions on
the subject. One of these is Professor
Bossey of Nebraska's botanical depart
ment. Dr. BesBoy believes that thoro is no
doubt but that the plants have the
beginnings of sensations and func
tions which, when developed highly
enough result In mentality, including
thoughts and emotions, but he thinks
It unlikely that any plant has yet at
tained such a development, nor is It
likely to do so Blnco the plant tissues
are all of too simple a constitution to
suggest this possibility.
Plants have definite physical sensa
tions and they accomplish certain phy
sical action because of offects upon
these sensations, but it scorns unlikely
that mentality is among their posses
sions. The mere physical action is not
sufficient proof of it.

LAW-MAKERS STUDENTS' GUESTS
Kansas Undergraduates to Entertain
The students of Kansas state agri
cultural college are planning a day
that will be tho most unique of any In
the history of the college, In fact, of
tho state. The Kansas stato legisla
ture has been given an invitation to
visit tho great institution here at the
expense of the student body.
A mass meeting was called and tho
big auditorium was crowded to the
limit on the .main floor, and tho gal
lories were over half filled with stu
dents. Never In tho history of tho
college has anything of this kind been
seen. Nearly two thousand students
singing their college song and pledg
ing their money, In order that tho leg
islative body of the state might find
out what Kansas really possesses, was
an exhibition of patriotism seldom
seen at Kansas.
When Cllf Stratton, secretary of tho
Student's Promotion committee, asked
how many would contribute ono dollar
each, the entire assembly Btood up.
Somewhere between $800 and $1,000
wbb raised to charter a special train
and provide for the oxponses of tho
Kansas law 'makers. Tho plan Is to
'charter the train, bring tho legislature
hero, havo the domestic science girls
glvo them a-blg banquet and make the
legislators feel, that they aro the hosts
of a large body of students who desire
to have their guests Inspect tho col
lege arid its work.
