GRADUATE CLUB MEETS & Last banquet of year held in temple la8t night. REGENT COUPLAND GIVES TALK URGED CONSERVATION INSTEAD OP DESTRUCTION. Professor Aylesworth Is Chosen Presi dent of the Club Miss Needham Secretary . and Mr. Pool Made Treasurer. The last and most Important ban quet and meeting of the year for the graduate club waB held In the Temple last evening and the capacity of the hall was taxed by the number present. The occasion was particularly to di rect attention to the work of the grad uate college and to listen to an ad dress by Regent Coupland of Elgin. Br. Condra occupied the position of toaBtmaBtor with his usual hearty eh- thuslasm. Introducing Air. CouplandJ Dr. Coadra took occasion to say that he Was a ruan who was and had been carrying on research work in his own line. "Mi. Coupland then said. "I supposed from the first notices I received to address this body that it would be before a crowd of agricultur al students, but I see such is not the case. It is a great inspiration to meet the student body directly, because, for the most part we find ourselves deal ing with the instructors of the univer sity. This institution is doing a splen did work. I would that every instruc tor of every department would realize and appreciate the fact that they are upbuilding the community through tho, students of this institution and lay: ing the foundation of a better individ ual life. Not Too Much Education. "You can not give ,us too much of higher education in any thing that helps us to grow and develop and bring forth fruit. 'Thirty years ago I settled on the homestoad that is now my home. It was bare prairie and I was a young man. These thirty yeara have brought much experience to me. Many things have fastened thehiselves upon my memory and one or two of these things I want to speak of to night. "The problqm of maintaining the best intellectual life on tho farm is one of the most perplexing problems that confronts the farmers of the state. It is the hardest plaoeand the easiest place to develop the highest intellectu al, life. When the student goes hack to the country, unless the individual comes back to tho land with tho de sire to grow intellectually, he will gradually lose his hold upon tho higher things. There are many things which detract from the farmer's devel opment. The o.wnor of the stable, and the overalls must not come as such into the homo for these things, all good in their places, must givo way tho home and its conditions. "The hard question before us Is tho keeping alive and the assistance of the Intellectual life and the environment promoting it. This Is tho most ser ious problem the farmer has to meet oh his return from school. The girl, too when she goes back; to take her place must develop and seek 'to main tain the same position as the man. When you teachers come in contact wlth'those going back tp. thd farm, do all possible to promote the reserve. pf intellectuality, under , trymg;.circum- stances. !, Much fo Do.

Every student may follow out the thing which is most interesting to him and may bring himself tho greatest satisfaction and yet itvmay not make him a multi-millionaire. Still there are many things which we would not sell for they aro our own. "The student comeB bore and .finds a congenial place to grow, but on the farm there Is a wonderful place for" research work. Hero in Nebraska our soil could be removed to a depth of thirty feet and yet wo would still find good soil. Here are opportuni ties to study the productiveness of our soil. Think what it will carry and produce. We aro JuBt on the border land of learning more. All we ask of you is to co-operate with us. Tho problem then, to my mind, is the high er efficiency socially and intellectual- ly and a growing ability to take the part of the trustee. Conserve and do not destroy. Wo must practice con servation. I feel most Intensely that following this principle this state will make wonderful advances" Following Regent Coupland, Dr. Condra Introduced Professor Lo'Ros? slgnol, who leaves Nebraska this year; He quite briefly seconded the note sounded in the provioUB nddres Bin ro- gardto ,thcuj,tlyatiqn of our environ ment, and declared that wo can then best understand ourselves. Elect Officers. Dr. Jones, representing the dominat ing committee, proposed as officers for the next year as follows: President, Professor Aylesworth; secretary, MIsb Needham, and treasurer, Mr. Pool, The persons nominated by the committee were unanimously elected. Mr. Ijaul Clark, an attorney of Lin coln and a( well-known alumnus of the university, was called on for a two minute talk; t He said that he entered Nebraska j twent-nlnVears ago yesj; terdayfand that 'much of h'ls farming had been," teaching calves;1 to drink from, a bucket; ;He realized now that his Ideas of farming were fifty yeara hohind. ?

SCIENCE DEGREE FOR GRAipif ATE8 HAS EXTRA LETTkH. )', NEBRASKA UNIVERSITY RIGHT History of the Controversy, Founded In Ignorance, Which Causes a Difference In American University Degrees. Tho degreo bacholor of sclonco la not B, S. and tho dogroo B. 8, is not B. Sc. Dosplto tho declaration of many dictionaries ,and of many unl vorsitioB who glye their sclontlflp' graduntoB tho tltlo B.

B. 8. moans Bacho lor of Surgory and nothing olao. For a quarter of a century thb Uni versity of Nobraaka has hold to tho degreo of B. Sc, and olthor knowingly or unwittingly, It haB given tho cor rect degree to ita studohts at a timb when many American univorsltios and particularly thoso of tho weat worb erring In tho matter, How It Happened. Tho story Is told in thlB connection, of a young man, a graduate of an American unlvorsity who wont to Europe on business. He was an elec trical engineor and according to cus tom had frequent use for his card In a business wny. Whon traveling ho met a university professor who knew of tho difference in tho meaning of the abbreviations and wno congratulated him en bolng a graduate of a unlvorsi ty which gave the correct degree. "Ob, but they don't," said the en gineer. "I had to put that on myself. I tried to ilso tho degreo which the university gave me. If was b! S. They all thought over here that I was a surgeon. I had to change the lettors in aolf defense." ,: . Nebraska Is Might. Tho practice qt the University of Nebraska is justified in "spite of tho fact, that one finds many men who make no distinction between the ab breviations for bachelor of surkory and bachelor of sclorico. No doub'f the institution's that cottfuse these abbre viations do flo Unwittingly, the raat'ter never haliig been called to IhV'alteiir tlori of thd a'uthoritfosT .Perhaps one reason for this is the fact 'that very few college presidents hold a science degree, and have never thoueht ser- lo'usiy (if , the master.
