country as a holiday. It 1b, however,
particularly a Nebraska day nH tho
Idoa of Arbor day was llrst developed
by the lato J. Storllng Morton, one of
Nebraska's most distinguished citi
zens. According to present plnns the
tiny will bo celobratod at the Btate
farm by the dismissal of school and
by elaborate oxerclsos of tree plant
ing. No plnns hnvo been made, how
ever, for any observance of the day
at all on tho campiiB In Lincoln.
The program for tho day which has
been Issued by the agricultural school
declares that the celebration at the
farm Is the celebration of tho Universi
ty of Nebraska. As a matter of fact a
very considerable part of tho Univer
sity of NcbraBkn has no knowlodge
whatever of any celebration and will
be busy with regular classes.
It would seem that It would bo only
proper for the whole university to cel
ebrate Arbor day with appropriate ox
erclsos instead of merely one part. Tho
fact that the day Is peculiarly a Ne-
braska institution nnd the added fact
that the celebration nt tho farm Is be
ing advertised as the celebration of
the University of Nebraska, would
seem to bo sufficient warrant for such

university and the public would profit

It is hard to understand the preju

could bq n)oro proper .than that In

THE RIGHT IDEA.
In his baccalaureate address to the
graduating studonts of tho state agri
cutlural school Sunday evening, Dr.
Wharton expressed a thought that de
serves the widest publicity and con
tains an immense amount of truth. It
was a thought intended directly for
those who plan to make tho stmly of
agriculture their llfo work, but it Is
one that deserves careful considera
tion no matter what line of work the
student plans to follow. Here are the
words of .Dr. Wharton :
"You are to promote tho public
good, In tho wholeness, you are to be
masters In the art of fine living, you
are lo be a contagion of good spirit
which all the community will catch
from you. You are to make society
grow, you are to so build up tho body
of the public that it can staunch the
surgery of the moral reformers and
other persons who perform tho heroic
One who has watched during the
last few yoars the great exposures of
corruption that have taken place, and
the inner rottenness thnt has been
exposed to view lu this country will
agree with Dr. Wharton thnt what Is
needed In this country Is a now back
bone of moral consciousness. The uni
versities of tho country ought to sup
ply this eloment of our civilization
that is apparently doflclenj. In other
nntlpns of the world that" aro op
pressed by despotic governments and

unfavorable conditions the strongest
lovo of liberty and tho leadors of pub
lic opinion are found among the stu
dents of the groat universities.
While Dr. Wharton was speaking di
rectly to the students who plan to
spend their lives on farms, his words
are just us applicable to all other stu
dents. If tho university turns out men
prepared to form the backbone of so
ciety, men with deep respect for hon-
eBty nnd morality, It has performell
a great work for tho good of clvlliz
tlon, whether thoso men aro evor

Monday evening the niombers of
tho Pershing Rifles were challenged
to a compotetfve drill by tho mouthers
of the Worldzer Rifles. Tho Pershing
Rifles Is an organization composed of
the host drilled men of tlio cadet bat
talion. The organization was founded
several yoars ago by Brigadier Gon-
oral Pershing,' who was commandant
at that time. Tho Worklzer Rifles Is
a similar organization, composed of
the students at tho state farm, but was
only organized last year. Tho Persh
ing Rides have accepted the challenge
and will meet tho "Worlclzor Rifles In
compototivo drill this afternoon at
1:80 nt the state farm. Tho judges
will be Ex-Cadet Captain R. E. Guth.
