Lincoln, April 19, 1909.
To tho Editor of tho NobrnBkan:
In tho Saturday 'number of tho No
braskan appeared a quotation from
ono of our most loved and lovable
faculty men to tho effect that it is
not only omphatlcally truo that col
lego students aro oxtremoly selfish as
a clasB, but that tho individual stu
dont ought to bo self-centered, and
must bo so, If IiIb school work Is to
Tho harshest criticisms aro often
passed upon universities by people
who have discerned tho veiled pres
ence of this fooling in university life,
and now, so frank a statement has
been made of it by a man whose
utterances aro so esteemed I think if
is reasonable and pertinent that an
opposite thought of student Hfo
should bo prosonted qui to. as. frankly
and earnostly by some one also a
part of the university life.
I believe that selfish self-centered-nosH
is absolutely fatal to tho truo
university spirit nnd to the realiza
tion of t.hno'iinl varsity's hicrhost nlm
IIn its students, and for three seasons.
First. I tako it that tho ossonce
of culture is Included in a living in
terest in human llfo and nil Its forms
and manifestations. How absurd for
a student to "grind" and "dig'' at
history lessons, trying to find out
what people did and how society de
veloped a hundred years ago, und
pass by with indifference all IiIb op
portunities to observe tho history now
in the making and the dovolopmont
pf the society about him as it is nbw
Second. Tho professor referred to
admits in a way that self-centered-ness
is fatal to these important
things, but says lot the studont
leave the attitude behind him as ho
leaves tho college doors. Will that
.work? Are not the days in college
those which are most formative of
character and especially of mental
bent, of one's general attitude to
Third. The reason the state of Ne
braska or any other state supports a
university is because It expectB of
it service, and the highest quality of
service, in return. But surely it is
self-evident that no matter how much
of Intellectual training a man re
ceives he Is not thereby fitted to
serve anyone, ir ho has diligently re
frained from cultivating tho "spirit"
or "service." Our country neods
leaders, but It needs big-hearted,
sympathetic leaders, able to under
stand the problems of all classes of
men. How are our university grad
uates to bo of any uso In solving
tho negro problem, the immigration
problem, the labor and capital prob
lom, ir during their "learning" years
they have purposely neglected to
learn the ways or men and women,
their prejudices and their feelings?

Theme . of Commencement Oration
Announced by Mr. Williams.
Word has been received from John
Sharpe Williams, who has beon chosen
as commencement orator for tho class
of 1909 that his subject will bo "Dlxio
Land, Its Placo in tho Union -Past,
Present and Future And Its ProB
lems." Mr. Williams is particularly wo'l
qualified to speak upon this subject
as ho has been identified with tho
progress of the South for many years

has been a member of tho house of
representatives slnco 1893 and has re

studied at tho University of Virginia
and later graduated from tho Univer

High class acting and a kocn pore
ccption in tho interpretation of char
acters In "Tho Comstock Mystery" by
Miss Charlotto Parry and her com
pany at tho Majestic this week, pro
duce a skillful dolineation of divers
porsons such as is seldom seen on
a vaudeville stage. Miss Parry is
an actress of high dramatic sensi
bilities nnd she brings out the small
est touches of character. In "Tho
Comstock MyBtery" she assumes the
role of seven different people, nlil
with equal display of high class act
ing. "The Comstock Mystery" has
Its plot in the murder of a man by
tho young girl whom ho haB com
promised. Several witnesses nro
called in by a great detectlvo in run
ning down the crime. Miss Parry
works opposito tho detective in tho

has several new, clean jokes and a
good voice for his class of work. He
was vociferously applauded laBt night.

and ono man, reproduce with much
accuracy and vivid detail a Borlos of
