Entered at the poitofflqe at "Lincoln, Nebraaka, aa aeoond-olaaa mall matter nndr the Aot of Contreaa of March I, 1179. i - - THURSDAY, MAY 20, 1909. Tho placing of tho human hoad ovot dno of tho gatOB to tho campus yoBtorday morning was Undoubtedly intended as a good Joko by those who put It there, but It 1b moat certainly arrylng a practical Joko a little too far. Such an exhibition Is oppoBOd to nil tho ' teachings and customs of civilized society and can hardly be excused ub a college prank. Such a thing may not shock a medical stu dent, but medical students are but a small proportion of tho total number tii at pass under tho gates every day. .Considerable cbmplaint has been made during the laBt few days that several Bhrubs that are now in bloom on tho campuB nro bolng seriously In jured by students attempting to pull bloBBoma. The purpose in planting the Bhrubs -was to beautify the cam pus and not to provido students with a private greenhouse. Notice of the damage which is being done should bo suillclent to cause students to re frain from doing anything of tho kind. SCHOLARSHIP 8TANDINQ. As far as statistics go they would seem to show that Nebraska has about tho samo standard of scholarship as neighboring institutions. Kansas has a slightly higher standard of scholar ship while tho University of Missouri has a little lower, but tho difference 1b only slight in each direction. It Is possiblo moreover that a slightly different basis might have been used in compiling the ilgurcB In tho difforent Institutions so that no defin ite conclusions can be drawn from a comparison. The chief Interest in tho statistics published in yesterday's Nebraskan lio in the light they cast upon tho scholarship standing of tho fraterni ties, fho figures for Nebraska indi cate that the average for fraternities 1b Just about tho same as that for the whole school. This Is seen to be a peculiarly good showing when it is remembered that fraternities have to consider many things besides scholar ly abilities in picking their men. During the past winter there has been considerable agitation of tho fraternity question over the state und it has been contended that' the pres ence of fraternities was bad for the scholarship standing. The table pub lished yesterday ought to silence tho charge that fraternities have lowered the scholarship standards at Nebras ka University. ' MEN WHO HAVEN'T TIME. In the university public Uie class of men who declare, whenever they are asked to do anything, tha they haven't time is unusually prominent and perhaps more noticeable because most 6f the work in college must be done without much present hope of reward. A recent editorial in the Dally Missourlan contains a discus sion of this question that is worth re printing. The editorial is as follows: KJThe' largest class of po'ople on earth, 'is' doubtless the 'vast army of 'fiaven't time' men and' women. Every- CONVOCATlON t r ! -' - t'Vm ". . ; SIDNEY Piano Temple Theatre whore yo.u go you hear that familiar phraso. It scorns particularly preval ent among students. Supposo you ask a man to contribute to a college pub lication, to Join a literary Bocioty, to take part In a debate, or to help push forward any lino of Btudont activity, how many times will you hear tho answor, 'I haven't time.' "Any man or women in tho Univer sity of Missouri who is carrying a full courso In any department may natur ally bo oxpoctod to bo fairly busy, but when that evaslyo phraso rises to your lips, just think of tho man who is Working his way through Bchool, carrying a full courso with credit and still finds timo to ongngo In student activities. Twenty-four hours 1b a long enough day for anybody If you'll Just 'got busy' and few can conscien tiously answer, 'I haven't time,' when keoping tho wheels of progresB mov ing." Alumni Notes. C. It.
