It Is to bo rogrotted that class
politics are bringing forth a certain
amount of mud-slinging. It would bo
well for aspirants to any office, whoth
or it bo a university offlco or other
wise, to loam that tho best way to
impress anybody is to tell him what
your bwn qualifications are and have
reBpoct enough for his own intelli
gence to believe that "ho will bo able
to judge proporly of tho qualifica
tions of tho other man.

The cold snap which swept over
Lincoln and the unlvorslty yesterday
emphasized more than over tho ne
cessity of bettor "heating facilities at
tho university. Several of tho early
morning classes had to be dismissed
.because of tho intense cold, and many
of tho rooms in which classes wore
finally held wore not warm enough to
properly accommodate tho students,
Just such a cold snap us this camo
during examination week, and it will
be remembered that students were
required to sit during examinations
of several hours in rooms that were
not pfoperly heated; This was espe
cially the case with tho law students,
who took a four-hours' examination in
Memorial hall, -which Is nover ad
warm as It should be.
.Tho university can get along with
buildings that n're old if the condi
tions arc such that good work can

bo performed. It Ib, however, abso
lutely impossible for a high Btandnril
of scholarship to be maintained when
students cannot bo In physical com
fort during tho progress of classes.
The most' trouble with tho cold
seemed to bo In University Hali, the
oldest and one of tho hlghost build
ings on the campUs. It was found
Impossible to got any heat at all Into
several of tho rooms on tho top floor,
and as a result much Inconvenience
and even actual suffering was en
dured. Such conditions emphasize the
fact that while tho old main building
has many sacred memories attached
to It, It in faBt becoming unlit for ubc

A POINT WELL MADE.
In a recent editorial In the Dally
Kansan a question that Ib of vital
Importanco to tho students of tho Uni
versity of Nebraska is discussed and
tho point of the argument driven
home sb effectively that the editorial
is well worth printing.
It is often contended throughout the
presB of tho state that tho university
Is a place for young people to gather
and waBto tho hard earned cash of
their purents. It Ib contended that
tho state university is a place whore
habits of extravagance aro learned,
and where many young lives are
ruined. Tho answer of the Kansan
Is sharp and to tho point and is just
as applicablo to conditions at Ne
braska aB it is to conditions at Kan
sas. Tho editorial Ib as follows:
"Tho papers of tho state that Js,
the llttlo papers in the small towns
where rumorB aro given more cred
ence than facts havo been making
much ado over tho alleged fact that
tho university is a rich man's Bchool.

A number of articles have appeared
which pictures tho university as a
place where idle, glided youths, profli
gates, a crowd of 'spenders' wasto
their time, As most of tho students
hero come from tho small towns and
rural communities of the tato, theso
misleading, articles seem a reflection
upon tho citizenship of Kansas. Tho
fact that seventy-two por qont of tho
students aro making their way
through school by following fifty
different avocations shows that the
'spenders' here at least make the
money that they spend. Pretty thrifty
bunch ,o students, Isn't It, that go to
school, spend tho fabulous Bums of
money they aro reputed to spend, and
then make their own money?"
HOWARD ON SUPREME COURT
Professor Thinks Judges Should
Change Present Trend.
In his regular lecture in Political
Scienco yesterday Professor G. E.
Howard took the occasion of a discuB
sion of Chief Justice John Marshall
to point 'out a needed reform in tho
present court system. .Inferring to
Judge Marshall's incomparable work
In building up a constitutional law for
the new American republic at a tlmo
when no nation on earth' had such a
legal system founded on a writton
constitution, Professor Howard said:
"We may well honor John Marshall
for his work in giving ub, through
his interpretations of the constitution,
such a .system of constitutional law.
Wo ' may honor him deservedly for
establishing tho powor of Uie supremo
court, until then a croaturo with but
timid authority. And yet I -believe
that now without present conditions
of political life, changed as they aro
from those of tho earllor day, if we
should have a now John Marshall or
even the old John Marshall, wo'
should have a now sort of decisions.
Tho entlro trend of thought now in
dicates that the people fear that the
supremo court in the light of lt3 pres
ent attitude has too much power.
"I do not think that an amendment
to the constitution Is necessary to
bring the court to meot tho changed
conditions of tho country. I believe
that if wo had men on the bench
who were less regardful for precedent
and more in sympathy with the pres
ent, a constitutional amendment
would bo necessary. Progressive de
cisions would take its place. I be
lieve In the cour"tH meriting the de
mand of tho living. I do not believe
in . being ruled by the dead through
the decisions of the courts."
