Tho Dally Nobraskan wIhIiob to urgo
tho students to support tho first vos
por servlco, which will ho hold In
chapel nt 5 o'clock this afternoon. A
great amount of work has boon put
upon, the program by thoso Interested
in tho work and it 1b guaranteed that
the program will bo worth much more
than tho time that it will take.
A certain story very damaging to
tho reputation of the university and
to tho gobd sense of tho faculty has
been widely circulated. Tho story
has obtained too wide publicity to bo
Ignored by tho university nuthoiitioB.
It Bhould ho thoroughly investigated
and olthor provon to bo a basoloBs
fabrication or tho full truth should
bo known. Any professor that would
mako such a statement as is reported
is not fit to hold a position in this
school, and should bo dismissed. Such
a statomont gives an utterly false
vlow of tho attitude of tho univorsly

At tho basket-ball gamo Wednesday
evening there was a very small crowd
present. There should at least bo
enough class spirit in tho university
to got out a crowd nt a class game.
Of course those who go will not see
a gamevhere tho greatest skill will
bo exhibited but they will see a gamo
that Is fast and Interesting.
Thoro are five more gameB to be
played before tho present series is
closed and tho students of' tho uni
versity "should show their interest In
clean affairs by attending. On Friday
the JUnlors will play tho seniors and
on Saturday tho freshmen will play
the sophomores Thero will be no
school on these nights, and thero Is
no excuse for such a smallf crowd as
was preBont Wednesday night.
A BIT OF HI8TORY.
Statistics show the peculiarfact
that with tho growth, of American
universities tho proportion of salarlen
of professors to tho" cost of -buildings
and improvements has steadily do-
i creased. The whole question has been
''' worked out In admirable fashion In an
edltdrlal In a recent Issue of the Cch
luinhla .Spectator, and is given In full

tion as tho valuo of tho plant for
formal education In this country dur
ing tho year 1900-07. Analyzing tho
BtntlBtlcs, Professor Thorndiko shows
thnt tills plant was directed and oper
ated by 560,000 teachers, who were
paid $300,000,000 to teach 18,000,000
students' of varying grades.
"Tho figures also call attention to
tho fact that omphasiB has beon on
buildings and apparatus rather than
on personalities In 1890, expenditures
for buildings an i apparatus were $20,
200,000 and for teachers' salaries, $91,
837,000; whilo last year tho figure
wero $G5,817,870 and $190,980,919, re

"The old Idea was that tho teacher
mado the school; where tho teacher
wont, tho students followed, and thoro
was tho schood. All that is changed
now. Wo no longer judge a high
school or university by its faculty, but
rather by tho beauty of its grounds,
tho slzo and modern fittings of ltd
buildings, tho prestige in athletic
sports, or tho number of Its students.
And to what 1b this regrettable fact
duo? Is It because great toachers aro
less nmherous or because we appre
ciate, tholr worh loss than formerly?
Probably neither of these is the true
cause, but rather must wo look t
tho natural conditions of modern life.
"Tim profession of pedagogy is still
a most honorable one, but tho de

a material point of view) tipporlun-'
