If tho attendance at tho Friday
nftornoon convocations can ho takon
as any Indication of their value, thoy
can not thus far ho considered a very
great buccoss. Both this year and In
years past ltAhas boon Impossible to
got more than thirty or forty pooplo
to attend. As thoro 1c no tlmo In
tho week thrt studonts have moro
tlmo to attend a thing of that sort, It
would soom that a largo attendance
would ho present without any urging.
Tho programs that have boon given
thus far have boon of such a nature
that thoy woro of vital InteroBt to all
unlvorslty students who are really in

only explanation that can bo offorod
Is that tho studonts do not roallzo
how much thoy aro missing, and It Is

tho futuro will show a largo Increase

snobbishness in our colleges overy
year, and around tho homo fireside
tho children aro taught to bowaro of
tho collego snob. Tho latest weighty
discussion of this Bubject appears in
the Wisconsin Cardinal, which dis
courses as follows:
"Possibly tho most useless expres
sion of college lifo is tho college Bnob.
Wo do not Bay thoro aro such at
Wisconsin, but a university commun
ity is always apt to have ono in tho
making. Ho is a peculiar specimen,
hard to classify becauBo ho possesses
such unusual attributes. He struts
about hla own little world Imagining
himself tho cynoosuro of all oyes. As
ono of our law profossors dryly re
marked of a gentleman: 'Know any
thing? Ho nover oven suspected any
thing!' And nobody daps expect thQ
snob to possess mentality, must less
to -over acquire tho democratic man
ners of n gentleman. Llko all social
parasites, ho Jsfi hard to exterminate,
and must bppatlently borno."
A PROPER MOVEMENT.
It Is highly fitting that tho univer
sity should tako a prominent part in
the movement for universal peace that
is now occupying such an Important
placo In tho attontlon of the world.
Even though Its part in this move
ment bo limited to devoting ono hour
of its time overy year to a consider
ation of tho problems of poaco it. Is
yet worth while and may bo tho begin
ning of an even broador movoment
for peace In which tho universities of
tho world will tako a moro prominent
part just as they now load In other
activities and reforms.
This morning at 11 o'clock tho sec
ond annual peace program will be
given at tho university and it is of
vorsltios of tho land havo a very real
interest. It means the preservation
of such conditions that tho universi
ties can do to tho best advantage tho
work for which thoy havo been cre
ated. It means tho triumph of tho
intellectual ovor the physical.
Happenings of the Past
Seven Years Ago.
A warmly contested game of basket-ball
was played between tho soph

and discussion. When It is moro fully
'realized that tho child Is tho coming
man and that tho conditions under
which tho child lives determines to
a- largo extent tho character of tho
futuro citizens of the nation thoro will
bo moro responsibility felt by those
who aro in a position to act over tho
conditions under which the children
of tho country are living.
Tho movement of late years for tho
establishment of juvenile courts and
tho growing objection which Is being
made to tho confinement of young
boys In jails with hardened criminals
nro tho first indications that tho gov
ernment Is coming to realize its re
sponsibility for tho futuro citizenship
of tho nation. It is to bo hoped that
through discussion and education this
movoment will grow and spread until
it makes impossible the oxistence of
such conditions as havo recently been
exposed in many of our larger cities.
THE COWLEGE SNOB.
Onco again wo' hear of that much
abused and- long suffering individual
'trie? college; snob. Of all tho characters
ofHho pastjand present it is doubtful
if any can boast of being so widely
known as tho collogo sonb. - Tho coun
try nowspapers loyo to ravo and froth
over tho depravity of tho young Amer
ican citizens' who aro, being taught
great importance that university stu
dents show their Interest In this move
ment by dropping their work for one
hour and listening to the best thought
on tho subject Judgo Lincoln Frost
of Lincoln and Hon. J. L. "Wobster of
Omaha will bo tho speakors.
Tho universities of tho land stand
for Intellectual Ideal, for tho predom
inance of clear thinking and efficient
acting as opposed to the law of brute
force. Universal peace means a tri
umph of tho intellectual ideal. It
means that tho tremendous 'damage
and destruction of war will como to
an end and that tho world will go for
ward wjth fewer obstructions to the
progress of civilization and moro at
tention to the development of the
higher side of life.
Tho existence of war moans that
all tho organizing .elements of our civ
ilization arc at once removed and that
brute force comes lo bo tho deciding
faotor In any question of right and
wrong. Tho existence of peace means
that' tho world will have tlmo to pur
sue a higher Intellectual development
instead of being entirely consumed In
tho rush for placo and power. It
means that tho universities will lead
and mould public opinion instead of
being relegated to tho background.
Tho probom of preserving universal
peace is then one in which the uni-
