IT tho Installation or Alpha Chi
8l?nin at Nebraska moans that No
Drnuka chemists will have tho oppor
tunity of doing hotter work In their
jiiofeHslon than before, then It Is cor
talnly a fine thing for tho school.
There la always tho possibility, how
ever, that more organizations do not
necessarily moan bettor opportunities
for consistent work.
Tho largo crowds which turned out
to hear both tho junior and senior
progrnniB show that tho student body
Is favorablo to tho change which has
boon mnde this year In doing away
with all attempts at humor In tho
programs. A great deal more real In
terest can bo aroused In any event
when the best sorlous effort of those
who participate Is required for suc
cess. The exorclBos on next Friday In
honor of the visiting high school stu
dents will be this year as nover be
fore In charge of tho student body.
It Is now up to the student body to
make tho kind of an Impression Fri
day that will bring a largo number
hack to Lincoln next fall as students
of tho. University of Nebraska.
When rightly compiled) statistics aro
of great vnluo In showing tho effects
of different causes and the growth of
an Institution. When carefully and
reliably gathered thoy' are a mine of
Information and Invaluable as a guldo
to tho future.
Tho criticism has boon frequently
made that statistics of tho growth
and development of this university
have not been and are not being kept
in such a way that thoy give clearly
'the amount of Information that thoy
might. The criticism wns especially
mndo during tho- time that tho legis
lature was in session that many facts
which would bo very valuable could
not be Obtained because' of a lack of
tho necessary statistics. It was de
clared by members that thoy could
not got Information which thoy felt
that thoy needed.
At the present time statistics as to
the growth of many phases of. uni
versity activity aro only kept, if thoy
are kept at all, by the departments
of the university and are In no place
gathered togothor bo as to bo avail
able for use. This fact has been
especially brought to tho attention
of the NebraBknn when It has several
times attempted to 'write up some
story which It was forced to drop
because of a lack of the propor sta
The practical value of statistics to
a university dopondent upon tho good
will of a legislature Is well illustrated
by the powor which statistics Rave
to Chancellor Strong of KanBaB unl-J
verslty, .He gathered information as
to the number of young men who wore
working to pay their expenses while
attending tho University" of Kansas
, and1- also Information as to the way
vthey wore treated by their' class-,
mates. '"Now, whenever the charge Is

made that tho Univorslty of Kansas
is n Bchool for the rich and is un
democratic, Chancellor Strong can at
once produce tho flgurds to bIiow Its
fnlBlty and forover silence the charge.
A state university is n constant tar
get for every kind of chargo and
abuse. Tho only way It can defend
Itself Ih to bo able to produce the
deflnito and nhsoluto ovldqnce ofthe
falsity of tho charges. This the Uni
vorslty of Nebraska Ib not at the
present time In a position to do,
A vast amount of valuable informa
tion Is in tho hands of tho different
departments that would at least bo
Interesting If not valuable In the wny
above mentioned. It would seom
that It would pay for It to be made
tho duty of some university officer to
gather and tabulate all this Informa
tion. NOT WHAT IS CLAIMED.
Tho Dally Maroon, of the Univer
sity of Chicago, has come to the con
clusion that tho man who considers
a college oducntlon as tho beginning
of n great business career Is liable
to bo sevoroly disappointed. The edi
torial Is quoted In part below:
"James R. Garfield, Roosevelt's sec
rotary of the. interior, and himself a
comparatively recent graduate from
college, is extremely pessimistic In
his opinions of the college man's ac
complishments In actual life. In a
speech made by him recently, he said:
" 'Since leaving college I have often
been pessimistic about the college life
and what educated men are doing for
their country- It is the Idea that they
a.re a specially privileged class which
has made college men fall to take the
places they ought to have taken
"This criticism of the colloge man
Is not altogether new and It derives
additional forco from that fact. Her
bert. Parsons, a New York congress
man, arrived at about the same con
clusion in a discussion of the college
mnn in politics written by him for
The Maroon. It. T. Crane, In n letter
sent to tho University Commercial
Club, finds himself entlroly out of ac
cord with everything In tho line of
higher education and Intimates that
he would think several times before
he decided to employ a college man.
Mr. H. B. Riley, speaking before tho
University Commercial Club, tolls Kb
members that the college man is too
impatient of details and routine to
succeed In business.
"It may be that these sentiments
are exaggerated. Perhaps the worthy
flpoakors have given some aid In the
manufacture of tho ghost with which
thoy try to bring college men to a
realization of their shortcomings.
But tho college man should bo
WISCONSIN HIT BY LEGISLATURE.
Contended TlVht the University Is Un
democratic. Nebraska is not the only state uni
versity to Buffer from attacks made
upoh It by tho legislature of tho state.
Tho univorslty 'of Wisconsin has Just
received n 'severe scoring at tho
hands' of the legislature of that state.
It has been contended that the uni
versity was not fulfilling tho purposo
for which It was created.

"Tho state university, as managed
