THE ENQINEER8' NEBRA8KAN.
With tho appointment of tho Htaff
to edit tho engineering number of the
Dally Nobraskan, tho attention of tho
student body is again brought face to
face with the fact that tho engineer
ing collogo of this university Is one o
tho leading schoolB In this lino found
in tho United States. That there an
few schools of the engineering world
in which tho members of that depart
ment tako charge of the student dally
and run it as a papor for engineers
nnd about the engineers of thut hcIiooi
should bo complimented upon. That
1b a rocognlzod fact. But nevertheless.
this 1b what the students of the en
gineering collego of tho University of
This is a fact that the members of
that dopartmont of tho university
mon upon whom tho world (looks as
bolng only capable of understanding
complicated machlnory and mathe
matical formulas are able to tako
charge of a students' daily newspaper
and run it along pure nowspaper lines
Is a thing upon which these men aro
worthy of credit. The fact also stands
that tho papor which the engineers
aro ablo to put out is worthy of com
ment. This is shown by the paper
which they published last year and
which too was the original edition of
the engineers' annual number of the
Nebraskan. This paper wob a marked
success and was of interest to all tho
students of the university and not
alone to tho engineering students and
That other organizations of tho uni
versity should adopt this plan of edit
ing the Dally Nobraskan for one edi
tion each year is our suggestion, thus
helping to increase tho spirit of prido
In tho separate departments of which
the university is composed. That this
Is a possibility is ahown by tho way
the ongineers have done it. Why is it
not as truo with tho other depart;
ments of the university as it Is W1U;
"KNOCKING" V8. SUPPORTING.
Again wo have met the Gophers and
we aro theirs. This time it is not In
athletics, but in Intercollegiate de
bate. But it was no fault of tho mon
who represented Nobraska. They
were the very best mon "who were in
tho university that could represent us
. in this line of intercollegiate activV
i tips. When tho university football
,s season closed on every hand was heard
tbe ring pf the "anvil chorus" trying

ed and alBo for that reason that we
loBt tho dobate.
Why should It bo? 1b this tho truo
condition of ovory school? PorhapB
It is, but since Nebraska is considered
one of the leading schoolB in tho west
lot ub tako tho load in this matter and
push together for tho benefit of the
Scarlot and Cream spirit and to tho
dismay of tho "knockers." That there
aro men in school who are debaters
of first-class ability who do not try
out for tho squad 1b a well known
fact, and thoBo men are tho ones who,
as a rule, are doing tho greatest part
of tho "knocking." Why is It that if
they think they can do so much bet
ter than the mon who do do things
that they don't como forth and show"
tho student body that they havo tho
ability to do this which thoy claim
thoy are capable of? If thoy do not
havo tho ability of which they cluim
so much, thoh we ask them to kindly
keep still. If they would do this the
univorsity as a whole would bo better
off to a largo oxtent.
That tho knocking is not ulone in
tho university is also admitted. In
the editorial column of one of the
dallies of our metropolis we find u
little Irony in tho statomont that the
present record of thlB year's debating
team should bo kept as a permanent
record. This statement 1b entirely un
called for, especially as it comes from
ono of tho leading state papers. We

and Soft Hats. All
suggest that instead of this paper try
ing to "knock" state affairs, especially
those of the stato university, that It
would be better If they would lend a
helping hand to this university nnd
try to bring it into a better light In
tho eyes of tho people of the state.
AGRICULTURAL CLUB MEETING.
Talks from Members of Teams 8ent to
National Judging Contests
Tho Agricultural Club held Its regu
lar meeting last Saturday night at tho
Temple. There was a large attend
ance of members and an Interesting
program was listened to. Tho talks
were summed up under the hend tltlo
"Trips," being reports froip team
members of tho various contests to
which the university has sent judg
ing teams this fall.
Tho first speaker was R. H. (lamp,
1913, who was high man on tho team
at tho international live stock show
at Chicago. Mr. Camp gave an inter
esting account of the work during the
contest and the way the Judging was
done. Louis R. Anderson, 1912, who
led the Nebraska team at tho croBB
country run at Chicago, told of the
race in a manner which drew a greaj
deal of appreciation from tho audi
once. O. H. Liebers. 1913, gave an
account of the Council Bluffs horticul
tural show. Mr. Liebers ranked first
among tho Nebraska team, which took
llrst place in the Judging at tho show.
The Nebraska Judging teams this year
have won two firsts out of four na
tional contests entered, easily giving
it first place In Judging among the
schools of the country.
Howard Gramlich,' assistant in the
department of nnimal husbandry, told
of the prize? won by tho animals ex
hibited by the University of Nebraska
at the International. A large sum of
money was won, besides a number of
scholarships. Several Nobraska ani
mals took first place in their class.
These havo been hold over and pros;
poets aro good for winning the grand
championship noxt year. In the car
cass contests Nebraska took practical
ly all of tho prizes.
A business meeting was hold after
tho program. Some now members
wore voted In. Refreshments were
served nt tho close. Tho next meet
ing of the club will be held January
8, at which time papers will be given
on three different phases of agricul
ture in western Nebraska.
