WEDNESDAY. DECEMBER 8, 1909.
Nebraska cfitUo seem capable of
winning prizes ovon If the university
students-dld not coma up to tho stanrt
nrd thoy hnvo sot for themselves In
Hastings collego 1b tho school which
will bo roproBontod at Oxford, Eng
land, next yonr, In case tho applicant
from that Institution satisfies tho sec
ondary tests of tho Rhodes trustees.
Ho was tho only ono of a dozen men,
Including several university students,
who passed tho examinations held in
Octobor. Undoubtedly tho Instance
will becomo the toxt for this year's
argument of the Bmnll college against
Circulars aro out appealing for
teachers in tho whilo and colored
schools of tho Panama canal zono. No
braBka students in other departments
havo mado a success of their Panama
experience and thoro would seem to
bo no reason why thoy could not mako
good in teaching. It would seem that
there Is an excellent opportunity of
fered for students of average ability
who have a desire to see tho southern
country and acquire valuable experi
ence. "Stroots of All Nations" Is to take
tho placo of the County Fair, annu
ally' given by the Y. W. C. A. Tho
county fairs have been unique attrac
tions in the past and with the inno
vations this year tho annual stunt will
probably have all tho greater patron
age. It certainly deserves It.
BE CORNHU8KERS TONIGHT.
Tho annual Cornhuskor banquet Is
to bo bold tonight at tho Lincoln. It
1b the ono occasion of its kind In tho
traditional history of tho unlvorslty.
It is the ono chanco of tho year when
Nebraska students can meet tho mem
bers of tho football team and thank
them for their' work of tho season. It
Is tho one opportunity offered for
alumni and students to go't together
and talk over tho plans for Nebras
With theso things bo, it Is no won
der that tho Cornhuskor banquet is
recognized as ono of the big events
of tho Bch'ool year. Last year over
two hundred students were present at
tho meeting In celebration of tho vic
tories of 1908. -Tills yoar'over three
hundred should gather to do honor to
the.hard-workrnK squad of 19091

bloacbers and Watched these men fight
tho battles on tUo field should now be
oagor to show that they too aro boost

THE TWO PROM8.
Tho action of tho university senate
In rojectlng tho request of tho Junior
and senior prom committees for the
suspension of tho midnight oIobIhk
rulo In tho cases of Uiobo two formal
dancoB was a considerable disappoint
ment to many students. Students
who are working to make these two
affairs similar to tho big proms of
othor universities will feol the effect'
of tho senate's actions.
Yet It should be understood that
tho faculty acted only after delibera
tion. The social committee dlHousscd
the question at length before report
Ingn to tho senato and a chance was
given for debate by that body. The
unanimous voto resulted largely from
the belief that such a precedent would
encourage othor petitions which could
not well be granted. While the peti
tioners win undoubtedly reserve the
right to disagroo from tho faculty be
lief In this regard, thoy must still re
alize that tho senate has dealt in all
falrnesB with their petition. The fac
ulty simply does not Bee the matter
f All wool. A
from the same standpoint as do tho
committeemen nnd others Interested.
While this fact may be regretted as
an obstacle to the development of a
prom tradition, the committees can
only go on and do the best that they
can in accordance with pie midnight
THE SUMMER SESSION.
The change mado In the organiza
tion of the university summer session
marks another step. In the Improvement
of tho unlvorslty administrative sys
tem. The summer session is now to
bo given a definite charncter as a half
somestor of tho regular university
course with its work carried on direct
ly under the authority of the chancel
lor and registrar.
Under the administration of Profes
sor P. H. Grumann, who hus sacri
ficed much to tho benefit of the sum
mer session, 4tinjU.djjpartmont of tho
university's activity has grown rapid
ly. The session haB been built upon a
Bolid foundation, with close regard to
the high quality of work demanded of
such a course carried on in connection
with a university of tho standing of
Nebraska. Teachers of tho state havo
come to recognize its value for ad
vanced work and it has filled a posi
tion which guarantees It continued
What would tho Nebraska regents
say If they should wake up some
morning to find that the university
fraternities had petitioned them for
funds with which they might build
new fraternity houses In Lincoln?
Would they think It nervy? It cer
tlnly seems likely.
Yet this is just what the Greeks at.
Northwestern havo dona. Hero is the
' "At n meeting of tfie'tybard' of frus
' tees of Northwestern Unjvorsity afew
days ago itho '. question ;bf fraternity;
houses on the campus was taken up.
' . r w i.r
PetltionB Were presented from Several
fraternities, asking that the univer
sity advance a part of the necessary
funds, provided the fraternities should
raise a specified amount.
"Last Bprlng there was considerable
agitation for dormitories on the
campus in which tho vnrioiiB fraternities-
should rent suites of rooms.
Tho plan, however, is felt to bo open
to a number of criticisms and both
the board and the fraternities have
lot it drop.
"In case the board takes favorable
action on the petitions which have
been presented, It Is probable that
several fraternity houses will be erect
ed on the campus in ihe near future."
According to figures available In
