A8 TO ADVERTISER8.
With each day tho Dally Nobraskan
Is seeking to enlarge Its list of adver

to persuade the merchants of Lincoln
that its columns nro a' profitable

that which yields them no return.
Thoy ndvortise in tho Nebraskan be
cause they believe that the advertise

dents and that tho Btudonts aro at
tracted by the wares so displayed. It
is plainly a business proposition with
them and they are not guided by

.Nebraskan manager In soliciting ad
vertisements depends wholly upon tho
manner In which the readers of the
paper patronko tho mon who aid him.
If thoy pay little attention to the ad
vertisements of the paper, either by
not reading them, or by, not following
out tho suggestions mado therein, tho
Nebraskan loses patronage that is
worth much to It. Subcsriptlona do
not pay for publishing this paper. Tho
advertisements constitute the bulk of
tho receipts. Tho welfare of the pa
per therefore depends upon the stu
donts In the advertising as well as in
the subscription department. It Is a
fact stated by many advertisers that
tho students at Wesleyan and Cotnor
patronize them better In proportion to
the advertising in the school papers of
those colleges than do the university
irion. These students, they say, think
i loyalty to their school paper to aid
its patrons. So It should be with uni

to find somoono capable of taking his
place, but so far hiB efforts have been
vain, and, unless Colling finally de
cides to throw up his job for tho foot

Ewing and Wolcott, strong mon for
guard and tacklo positions, aro up
against tho scholarship rule and both

squad. Captain Beltzor is not in the
best of physical condition, owing to
sickness during the summer, and thiB
adds to tho worries of tho coach.
With those four men out o'f. the
game, four distinct places in the
CornhuBker line-up are weakened.
Could ColllnB, Ewing, and Wolcott
come back, the lino would bo much

would not appear nearly bo Bllm "as

not faked, if tho words of Colo and

Chancellor Avery tendered the as

work the assignment committees had

At tho banquet tho guests discussed

Rhodes scholarship, many Nebraska
undergraduates aro getting busy re

of Samuel Rlnaker will leave a va

examination will be held the 19th and

any student who has reached at leaBi

The scholar chosen from this state
will take up his residence at Oxford
next fall. Two scholars aro ohoson
from each state, but some of the
states, as Wyoming, have not been
taking advantage of the offer. The

been more widely advertised and
sought after in tho eaBt than in the

number of competitors. Heretofore

a candidate was , examined. Many
students disliked the Idea of talcing

debarred from competing.

This has been changed, however,
and a competitor Is now allowed to

Another change In the policy here
tofore followed in the choosing of the
Rhodes scholars Is the recognition
now given to the general ability of
the candidate in other lines besides
scholarship. Athletic ability, popu
larity with fellow students, personal
character and many other similar at
tainments and characteristics all now,
play their part In the choosing of the
lucky scholar. The examinations
have been lightened this year for the
purpose of allowing more candidates a
chance tq pass and so as to obtain .a
wider selection of men representing
the other attainments In combination
with scholarship. All of this has been
done so as to eliminate the mere

A Rhodes scholar receives $1,600 a
year, and according to the Nebarska

living expenses are lower there than

the college system of that, school each

sense of the word and aro described
as the cream of American. manhood.
Sam Rlnaker of Beatrice, who will
graduate there in June, has been
spending tho summer in this country.
George Marsh of Cotner Is the other

at tho present time. He will receive,
