Thoro Booms to bo an impression

people that tho Dally Nebraskan Is a
froo ndyortislng medium for all thoBO
who havo any announcement to make
to tho students or havo anything
which they wish to oxplolt upon tho

Tho Daily Nobraskan occupies a
vory peculiar place In tho framework
of university society. If it serve'd no
function except to mako known tho
"nows" of tho university It would not
bo worth tho effort involved In its
publication. It has, however, a much
I wider range of influence. Through Ub
columns it is ablo to help boost uni
versity activities that nee.d boosting;
it is able to oxnoBe practices that are
not proper; It i,abo to glvo a full
expression to student opinion; it is
ablo to. keep beforo tho student body
high ideals. In tho exercise of these
functions, aside from thb mere pub
lishing of news, it is always necessary
to distinguish with tho greutest of
care what is propor boosting of col
lego functions and activities and what
is a use of tho paper as a moro adver
