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.
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
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. '
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-

whore yo.u go you hear that familiar
phraso. It scorns particularly preval

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

"Any man or women in tho Univer

courso In any department may natur

carrying a full courso with credit and
still finds timo to ongngo In student
