Considering tho frequency of such
pessimism and skepticism, tho note
sounded by Rov. Hays may woll attract
collogo students. Rov. Hays Is not
poBBlmlstlc. Ho readB tho signs of tho
times In a way which for him at least
indicates a renewal of othlcal stand

I fool very kindly towards tho person

not havo taken a cover costing only
twenty-flvo conts. I'm suro he's a
gontloman, for ho was kind enough to
loavo my notes which had taken mo

ton on both out sldo covors on a
"Co-op" slip, and if tho porson will re
turn my cover, I will glvo him enough
to buy a now ono. Will also bo glad
to lend him money occasionally to help
him get through tho school year.

donning of tho mortarboards has led a
prominent senior man to suggest tho
propriety of like action on tho part of
tho men of tho class. Ho does not

for tho seniors to wear class capB of
Tho idea is not at all bad, and may
woll bo considered by tho sen lore.
Hero at Nobraaka tho woaring of claas
cap8 has always been a moro or I08B
perfunctory custom, aomotlmea fol
lowed quite generally, but moro fre
quently passed by without much no
tice. In somo othor schools tho woar
ing of aomo designation marking each
of tho claesea has become a traditional
cuatom. While Nebraska is founding
traditions it might be well to remem
ber this ono.
but tho rivalry has boon of a clean and
healthy aort, woll calculated to work
to tho bonoflt of both schools.
With Ames back on tho Cornhuskor

that both Amoa and Missouri could bo

.Tho report of Professor Ohatburn to

decrease in student delinquency at tho

AN ETHICAL STANDARD.
In his convocation address TueBday,
Rev. S. Mills HayB issued an appeal to
tho young man of tho twentieth cen
tury for adhoronco to tho ethical stand
ard rather than to tho domand for gold
at any cost Ho declared that in his
belief tho present century was to mark
tho roturn to higher form of business
competition with moro regard for oth
ors and with loss porniclous grood.
Rov. Hays' suggestion is woll for
university studonts to dwell upon. Ho
sounds a note of optimism which Is
well worth noting amid tho many pes
slmlstlc utterances which aro going
tho rounds of both pulpit and press.
Too many men, thomsolvea of high
character, deem it noceaaary to de-
ploro tho present business methods
and tho morals of tho men engaged In
commercial enterprises without offer
ing any light to lead tho way out of
tho alleged dark paths of moral turp
itude. They point out tho ovlla exist
ent and then leave tho youth to medi
ta(;o upon tho wickedness of his ago
without offering any solution 'of tho
difficulty, and many of thorn without
apparently expecting anything but a
steady progress to tho eternal bow
wows. ' '
