Ono hoars on ovory Bide tho com
plaint that teachers cannot bo ob

many havo had to bo closed. It is Buch
conditions ub thiB that show tho wis
dom of tho board of regents in creat

in improving theso conditions and giv

Tho importance of tho School of

njqn.t Th.o ago in which wo aro living
is ono in which tho humanitarian side
of h,uman activity is most notlqoablo.
It is theroforo natural that such sub
jects, as political science and sociology
should occupy tho limelight, and in
toropt in government and humanitar
ian problems should bo uppermost in
tho udnds of thV student body, Tho
establishment of a school of citizen

AN UNFAIR CRY.
Thero is ono cry that Is raised
agalnBt the University of Nobraska by
tho smaller and moro especially tho
denominational colleges qt tho state,
thaj is QBponUally unfair. It is argued
that, thp university has not that roligl
qus arqpsphoro that should bo essen
tial to a woU-bolancod institution.
It is truo , that discussion and
thought upon dogmas and creeds finds
Hoi placo In tho actlvo life of tho
university. When it comes, however,
to tho real spirit of, religion and to
tho .interest which is taken by tho
student' body in humanitarian move
' mehtB, tho university takes rank with
the boat colleges In the land.
Ab ai -lndlcaUp.n, that tto real re
ligious spirit is not lacking ono may
point to tho flourishing condition of
tho Y. M. C. A. and tho Y. W. C. A.
Both theBo organizations havo ho ac
tivo support of a largo part of tho
student body, and both of thorn aro in
as thriving condition aB similar or
ganizations in othor schools. Besldos
thiB many students tako an actlvo in
torcBt In religious work in tho differ
ent churches of tho city.
Tho university Is not a placo for
thoologlcal discussions and tho airing
of religious vlows. It is a placo for
study, and it is juBt as inconsistent
to supposo that roligion ought to bo
taught and discuBBod directly in a
college as in any othor line of dally
work. Because tho principle which
lay bohlnd tho separation of church
and stato has boon developed to moan
tho separation of secular and roliglous
things, It docs not mean that In tho
change tho individual has become
moro or less rollglouB. It simply
moans that tho university is confining
itBolf to its legitimate functions and
recognizes tho right of oach individual
to think and act as ho bclloves right
in religious matters.
Thoro is ovory inlluonco thrown
around tho Btudont at tho University
of Nebraska to induco him to lead a
pure and upright life. Every oppor
tunity is glvon him to pursue his
choson lino of work to tho best ad
vantage. Beyond this no university
has the right to go. If tho Btudont
Is interested In religious questions he
can find ovory opportunity for devel
oping this side of .his nature among
tho churches of tho city, and among
student organizations for tho purpose
A LE880N TAUGHT.
An editorial in a rocent Isbuo of tho
Minnesota Dally points a lesson from
tho life of St Patrick that is of espe
cial value to the student- Tho edi
torial is quoted in part below:
"St. Patrick, tho patron saint of tho
Emerald Islo, was born in Kilpatrlck

tho latter part of tho century. At
tho age of 1G he was sold into slavery
and taken to Scotland, where ho re
mained sovon long years in bondage.
At the age of 23 ho effected his escape
and Hod to Franco. Here ho was wel
comed by St. Gormaln and spent many
years aB a pupil of this pious scholar.
Years of toil and drudgery, of pains
taking labor in securing an education,
ho gladly gave for ho know that ho
must bo prepared for his Hfo work.
Finally when ho had flnishod his rigid
course and was thoroughly equipped,
ho revisited bis native country, Ire
land, and spent tho remainder of his
Hfo in uplifting his superstitious,
down-troddon countrymen to a higher
plane of integrity ""Jjnd honor.
"Tho lesson of his Hfo teachcB us
that preparation is ossontial in any
field of endeavqr, in any walk of life,
and that tho greater the work to
which wo aro called the more rigid
and sovoro will bo tho preliminary
preparatory coursp through which wo
shall havo to pass.
"Wo need today moro mon like St
Patrick, of a sjnglp vision who will
steadfastly pross onyrard in splto of

"ono out of twenty who como to tho
misBlon from tho Blums aro college
graduates. Educated men, ministers,
doctors, lawyers, ono and all," ho Bald,
"aro includod in tho mass composing
tho Blums of Now York." Ho road the
statemontB of several of the missions,
ono of which had recived 50 or 60
college graduates in ono yoar and an
other which had had 293 applications
from) college mon in tho slums for
bods, clothing and tho like. In an
other, tho East Sldo Mission, 400 uni
versity men had. applied for similar
conveniences. (As a -reason for this
ho quoted a prominent mnn as saying
that "Tho colleges do not give tho
Btudonts onough of tho old-time ro
ligion." Ho said, "Tho tondoncy is to
develop Intellect and not enough to
Ho showed a clipping from tho New
York World which stated that in this
bread lino ono out of ovory ton wore
college men. At ono tlmo 59 college
graduates wore counted in this line.
"Soma big business firms both in Chi
cago and Now York ovon go to the
extent of refusing to employ college
"A man takes his first drink because
ho thinks it is big. Ho does not think
it will lead him to the gutter. I did
not think bo, nor does any man." Ho
wont on to Bhow tho Results of the
many vices acquired 'while in college,
sending many, oven ministers, to
prison or tho gutter. "Two or three
por cent, of tho prisoners in Sing Sing
are college graduates. The educated
man does not steal a bunch of ba
nanas, but ho does a big job whllo
ho Is at it"
Ho olosed his address by giving tho
many causes which lead men into tho
slums. He complimented Nobraska
on its reputation as a clean college.
"While I h.avo painted," he Bald, "the
dark side, thorp 1b a bright Bide. There
aro tho clean mpn of the college, but
tho lesson to bo drawn from what I
havo said is as appliablo to Nebraska
as to any school. Not to bocomo
skeptical, but to look at what tho life
of Christ has done for men."
