Convocation-Thursday, Feb. 23d
Mr. L. J. Hervog
Mr. Wobstor'B plea qt tho peace
convocation for larger armies and na
vies as a guarantee of peace scorns
rathor strange on first thought Mr.
Wobstor is like tho Irishman who do
dared that ho was going to have
peaco if ho had to fight for it.
It is unfortunate from tho student
point of view that none of tho basket-
not in thought or In thorough prepar
ation but in dollvory. Nebraska has
novor boon surpassed in Intor-colle-glato
debato in ability to present her
chbo clearly, to marshall hor facts In
tho strongest posBiblo form,, and to
think rapidly and to tho point; but
Nebraska has been surpasBOd In tho
brilliancy and resourcefulness of hor
BpeakorB. It is for this reason that
anything whjph tonds to develop tho
art of speaking at tho University of
Nebraska will bo peculiarly wolcomo
at this time.
Undor tho auspices of tho Colloge
Of Law an oratorical contest will Boon
bo hold which deserves tho attention
of all thoso who are interested in this
kind of work. The contest Is tho only
ono of tho kind that takes place at
Nebraska during tho yoar, and it do
BQrvcB enthusiastic support.
An oratorical contest of this kind
has more significance than tho aver
ago university ovent. It lays empha
sis upon ono sido of lifo that not only
students but a great many pooplo out
side of colloge lifo entirely fail to
tako into consideration. It emphasizes
tho importance of turning out work
in such a way that it is easily under
stood by thoso for whom it is in
tended. How frequently ono hears a schol
arly address that has tho most beau
tiful thought entirely ruined by tho
poor dellvory of tho speaker. How
frequently on receives an Important
letter bo badly written that It is Im
possible to tell its exact meaning. In
every walk of lifo work that is clear
and easily understood Is ranked far
nbovo work that in itself may bo far
aero scholarly and havo taken far

WHY PAY MORE?
ball games in tho championship Borles
betwoon Kansas and Nebraska can
bo played hero in Lincoln. Tho sup
port which tho studentB havo given
to baBket-ball this season shows that
a good gamo is appreciated and will
draw a crowd. It is also likely that
tho Nebraska team would bo ablo to
play a much better game at homo
Several of tho college publications
whfch como to tho exchange table of
tho Daily Nebraskan havo recently
been Riven over, for onq or more is
sues, to a staff of co-eds. This might
bo an ldoa that could bo worked out
by Nebraska irls, and developed Into
'something that would bo worth while.
At tho University of Texas each
class In the university has been given
the opportunity of appointing" a board
of editors, to tako charge of tho col-"
lego publication forgone Jbsuo. Tho
plan seems o havo boon started with
the intention' of .promoting chiss riv
alry and .giving to morp students tho
Practlco of getting out tho college
Buch condition whon it Is finished that
it cannot .bo valued at its full worth.
It Is a fjequont exporlonco for stu
dents in tho university to find that In
soma classes they aro unable to con
centrate their attention upon what the
profesBor is saying. His lectures are
unintdrcsting and a torturo to sit
through. Anothor professor, on the
other hand, with much loss roal learn
ing:, makes his work so clear and bo
easily comprehended that the student?
go away with a Teal increase in tholr
knowledge and much moro intorest in
Outsido of tho. university thlB same
phase of lifo Bhows itself under diff
erent forms. Everywhere thoro seemL
to be a general failure to appreciate
tho fact that tho way In which a
pieco of work is presented is almost,
as Important as .the content of tho
work. Tho oratorical contest which
will soon bo held by tho colloge of
law lays 'emphasis upon exactly this
phaso of life, and 1b therefore of deep
significance. It should arouse keen
competition among all university stu
dents who aro At all iqt'prested in this
lino of work.
