in tho press of tho stato with his dec
larations Saturday morning as to
snobbiBh studentB and wasteful use of
monoy for pleasure alone. Somo of
tho anti-university residents of No
braBka attompt to boliovo that the
sentiment .of tho whole institution is
for thoso things rather than against
thorn. And there are others, too.
Tho announcement that the employ
ment bureau is not ablo to find enuf
positions for Btudent applicants is
gratifying In ono way, even If It te
disappointing to tho desiring workers.
It shows at any rate that thoro are
plenty of young men In the state who
reallzo that tho university stands as
a place whore a man may bo educated
regardless of social standing.
A GOOD INVESTMENT.
Tho university board of regents oc
casionally mako a good Investment.
During tho year just past thoy made
several which were without question
capable of paying good dividends, but
thoro Is none which Is more appreci
ated by tho student returning from his
vacation than tho expense incurred in
employing a landscape gardener to
look after tho campuB.
It was only after considerable urg
ing on the part of thoso favoring the
change ana much hesitation on the
part of tho "practical" members of tho
board that the landscapo artist was
engaged. There were undoubtedly
.several professors who looked with
envious eyes upon the salary appor
tioned to tho now official. How much
good that stipend might have done
some 'struggling department, if It had
not been wasted upon more "garden
But it is doubtful if there are many,
even of these envious ones, who aro
not now well pleased' that tho rogonts
acted as they did. The university gar
dener was (just beginning his work
last spring when the students left for
home and tho, results were not then
apparent. But with the return this
1$, . ' ' '
fall one of tho first things noticed by
tho studonts was tho appearance of
tho campus. That it had not been bo
boautiful in years was one of tho
common comments. Appreciation of
this work, as general as it is, should
bo noted by tho rogonts and should
glvo thorn cause to realize that the
unlvorslty Btudent 1b not an unfeel
ing machine, after all.
A 8TART AT LA8T.
In this Issue of tho Nebraskan there
1b printed a communication from Pres
ident Yates of tho Benior class anont
a now song for tho University of No
braBka. Mr. Yatos Includes a song of
his own composition which he offers
as a Bamplo of what ho believes the
Nebraska song should be. In all mod
esty ho disclaims any intention of pos
ing as a composer or a poet. But ho
rightly believes that someone should
start tho movomont for a new song,
and- for that roason ho submits his
contribution to tho unlvorslty public.
Sotting asido the question of tho
morit of Mr. Yates' production, which
must be submitted to the Judgmont of
the studonts and faculty, nothing but
tho thankB of tho students can be ten
dered to him for his step in starting
anew tho move for a now university
song. Such a movement waB Inaugu
rated during January of last year. At
that time tho sonior society of Inno
cents was back of the proposed schomo
for tho adoption of new words and
new music. Tho Innocents proposed a
competition for a prize of consider
able amount. By tho tentative . ar
rangement which thoy considered the
prize was to bo awarded for both mu
sic and words, and In case the com--petition
resulted successfully Nebras
ka was to acquire a new university
song now both in tho wording and In
But the plan of the Innocents ran
against tho same rock that has foun
dered many other enterprises at tho
stato university. The monoy neces
sary to carry out the scheme was not
forthcoming. Tho Innocents could not
find tho men who would put up the
financial backing to mako the compe
tition a success. The matter was car
ried over for several weoks and final
ly went by tho board with no definite
action taken Which in any way looked
towards the development of tho new
With Mr. Yates' contribution tho
matter comes again before tho univer
sity public. This time it should not
be allowed to drop. Other students
who have ideas of what a Nebraska
song should bo ought to put their
ideas In printable form and got them
beforo the public. It should not bo
nocesasry for the Innocents, or any
other body, to offor a financial reward
in order to attract competition. Tho
mere honor of having one's name at
tached to the ofllcljYl Nebarska song
should be sufficient. The idea that a
great Btato university such as Ne
braska' should have for its song a
mere adaptation of the "Orange and
Black" of an eastern institution is 're
pugnant throughout to tho inde
pendent spirit which is the founda
tion of western citizenship. It should
bo exceedingly distasteful to Nebraska
students. Tho song should represent
it too a, m.
tho individuality of the stato and of
Its university. Surely copying is not
tho function of Nebraska.
With Mr. Yates' effort as a starter,
other university students should get
busy and mako'thoir work known. The
Nebraskan stands ready to print all
contributions with any merit whatso
ever, and when this Is done, surely
some method of making a choice can

State Teachers Meet.
Tho State Teachers' Association
meets in Lincoln on tho 3rd, 4th and
5th of November, 1909.
Last year's splendid attendance
demonstrated the wisdom of fixing an
earlier date than the winter holidays
and a date when all teachers, school
ofllcers and patrons are most interest
ed in education. Thp association is
not a holiday celebration it is a
meeting of earnest men and women
for mutual help and inspiration in tho
work of making Nobarska's public
schools tho most effective in the world.
Tho executive committee, the local
committee and the Lincoln Commer
cial Club have given tho most careful
attention to eVory detail of program
and local entertainment required for
ten thousand school people.
A splendid program cannot benefit
thos schools whose ofllcers and teach
ers aro not in attendance.
