The Carnegie pension bill, after a
long fight, has at lUBt been dofoatod
by the legislature. This moans that
tho other colleges of tho west will
still have another advantago over tho
University of Nebraska in tho mat
ter of salaries which they pay to
their professors. Tho legislature un
"doubtecUy acted on a high moral
prlnclplo, but its action Is. only half
cotnplotod it has now to find sonfo
othor means of making tho salaries
40. Two Stores
of Nebraska professors equal to those
paid in other states. If it fails to
do this tho final result to tho 'State
'will be a cnlamlty" piuch greater than
could over follow tho acceptance of
tho Carnegio pension.

' ,' It Is not generally known that ttito'

years ago placed on the' campus by

university Is ono of tho most Inter

Not only Is tho Btudont body Ignorant
of its history but tho rock Itself has
been seriously injured by tho- treat
ment which It has received. Graduat
ing claBBcs havo for many years
found It a most excellent placo to put

The Daily Pennsylvanian recontly
printed an editorial declaring in tho
strongest terms that collego athletics
havo paBsed beyond tho limits of good
sport and are now a horrible strugglo
to win at any cost. This may bo a
truo picture of conditions in tho east,
but it is not at all a picture bf things
ub they exist in western colleges.
Perhaps it is becauBo rivalry Is not
so intense; perhaps it is because stu
dents realize that .athletics aro not
tho first aim of student lifo, but what
ever it 1b, there is no domand made
that a man injuro his bodyand do
grade his ideals when he makes tho
