WEDNESDAY, MAY 19, 1909.
Tho victory of tho Nebraska track
tonm over Minnesota at Minneapolis
last Saturday was one of Iho ploasant
oBt bits of athletic ntfws that could
come to NobraBka. " On noxt Saturday
tho track team will again have a
chance to nhow Its strength In tho
meet scheduled with Kansas at Lin
coln. Kansas has beaten Nebraska
time after time during tho last year
and tho last chanco for Nebraska to
redeom horaelf this year will be In tho
moot Saturday. Tho best wlBhcs of
every university Btudent will bo with
Nebraska's athlotes on that day.
NEW SY8TEW OF ADVISOR8.
A new system of advlBors has been
adopted by the faculty of the college
of literature, science, and the artB and
an attempt will bo made to make tho
8y8tem of more practical value in tho
future. Tho freshman Btudent com
ing to the university in the future will
remain under tho direct supervision
of his advisor until his major is
During the last few years there has
been an unusual amount of critlcUm
each year at the results of tho advisor
system In ubg and the main criticism
from the student point of view has
been that thevo was In many cases
too much adviBo for the good of the
student. Often tho advlBor systom, has,
in the past, proved little more than
a proselyting agency by means of
which unpopular departments have
tilled their clasBOs with unsuspecting
If the new ByBtom of advisors is to
prove a roal remedy for past evils It
muBt obviate the worst features that
have grown up in the. past. Cases
have been known whero freshmen
have been permitted to take all of
their work in a single department
with the result that only the severest
kind of labor prevented them from
making a complete failure of their
work. Tho welfare of tho student
and not of any particular department
In tho university must be made tho
chief end of the advisor system or It
would be better to have no advisors at
It was also provided in tho now
rules that the faculty committee on
delinquent students should be re-organized
and that the regents should
bo requested to provide a paid secre
tary for the committee. If this means
that the work of looking after delin
quencies Is to be put In the hands
of a permanent Body with tho means
' 'avestlgating each case that comes
tore it, it will mean much more
real justice In thj? matter of delin
quencies. There is always danger
that 'serious Injustice may be done
through the arbitrary enforcement of
rules that are perfectly just In normal

Offenders Are Seen by President

After a chase from "fussers' " knoll,
over tho campiiB and almost to the
university gate, President CyniB
Northrop of the University of Minne
sota succeeded recently In capturing
two academic studentB caught smok
ing on the campus, against the rules
of the university.
President Northrop caught sight of
the men from his ofllce. Getting hit
hat he started out after them. Ad
soon as they saw lnm approachlm.
they rose and started to walk from the
campus. President Northrop started
after them, but the students quickened
their puce and were about to escap
when the president deputized another,
student in the pursuit.
"" The men were stopped, and when
Presidont Northrop came up they ad
mitted they knew it was against the
rules of the University to smoke on

tory excuse for disobeying the rules.
They were released on condition that
they appear before the president at
nino o'clock the ne,xt morning.
IS A LIBERALIZING FORCE.
Chicago Professor Tells of Power of
"Education Is the great liberalizing
force," said Dean Vincent of the Uni
versity of Chicago recently In an ad
dreSs before tho Junior college chapel.
He continued his talk by telling of'
the advantage of education.
"Education," he resumed, "sets men
free from fear. It liberates one from
the dull, sordid, and petty routine of
life, which is so lacking in Imagina
tion to many people, who have not
had the opportunities of education.
"Liberal education emancipates one
from narrowness and prejudices.
Lastly, It frees one from the limita
tions of his own Impulses, emotions
and passions and emancipates him
from his lower powers."
