Tho sorority girls nro to bo compli

tho unnocoBBary 'OXiiensoH Incldont to
tho formal pnrtlos annually given by
each of tho nlno organizations. Whllo
at first thought tholr action Bfloras
lesB radical than that of tho men In
abolishing half of tholr formalB, a lit
tle thought will Bhow that tho ro
suits of tho two methods will bo qulto
allko. Tho glrlB can, If they will, cut
tho expense of tho formats practically
In half, which will equal the saving

THE 80PHOMORE CONSTITUTION.
Tho presont sophomore cIbbb bo
lievoB In doing things a bit different
ly from others, his tendoncy has been
manifest at several times during tho
past somester, but at no tlmo more
beneficially than in the provisions of
tho constitution adopted Tuesday.
Tho new constitution provldoB def
initely, for tho class voting frnnchlso.
It expressly prohibits tho participa
tion in sophomoro affairs of sonlor ac
ademics carrying freshman law work
and It fixes tho status of -other law
Htudonts. By those provisions It
mnkos ImposBlblo the wrangles simi
lar to thosb which have disturbed this
and other classes.
Tho best foaturo of tho wholo docu
ment, however, is tho chango made in
tho mothod of selecting an Ivy Day
orator. Horotoforo UiIb ofTidal has
beon appointod by a committee, Itself
appointed by tho presldont, or oIbo
ho has been named directly by tho
executive. This system topidod to
lower ono of tho principal honors of
tho university to tho lovol of a politi
cal Job. Almost Invariably tho politi
cal activity of tho various aspirants
was an Important flguro In determin
ing his selection.
Tho now system to a considerable
oxtont kills this influence. Tho com-
of-classroom features of IiIb collogo
If, then, the thing which wo valuo
most after college lifo Ib over Is not
tho practical but tho fellowship, the
social, doeB it not profit ub to have a
caro that tho fellowship and tho bo
clal side of our collego lifo is equally
dovoloped with tho practical and aca
demic? College is too serious a mat
tor with a largo percent of students.
Tho sacrifice which precedes and
which Is necossary In order that many
may enter collego at all, rostrlcts and
restrains. Having howed t6 tho lino
rigidly In order to reach college, tho
how to tho lino tondency still rules.
Good studonts aro tho result. Prac
tical values aro obtained. But the
soclnl self is noglectod, pushed Into
tho background as an Impertinent
and In futuro years whon
studonts are met, thoro Is not that
shout of good fellowship which Is de
scribed as tho chacactorlstic of tho at
titude of "Old Grads." Students who
havo thus Btarved their social solves,
who havo mado it subsidiary to all
othor Interests, live a life which is
a trlflo narrower, a llttlo less pleas
ant than tho man -who has been, In
good fellowship terms, a "mixer." If
in futuro lifo tho social phaso Is going
to havo predominance it behooves ub
to glvo attention to tho out-of-class-room
phaBo of collego life today. Tho

1415 O St.
and non-fratornlty athletic moots, cul
minating in a frat-barb meot on Char
tor Day was tried for tho first tlmo.
Tho criticism of various faculty mem
bers and students to tho effect that
tho plan would tend to cultlvato an
antagonism between """the-fratornlty
and non-fratornlty elements was dem
onstrated to bo without foundation.
This year thoro Is every indication
that tho meots will again bo success
ful. Already both Greeks and barbs
aro taking an Interest In tho affair
and it Is to bo hoped that somo closo
contests will result.
THE 8ENIOR PLAY.
Tho senior pla,y commltteo havo
mado an arrangement -with Miss Allco
Howell, an Instructor In tho univer
sity, whereby BhoMBto recelvo ?200
for her services In coaching tho sen
ior, play. Entirely asldo from tho le
gitimacy of tho arrangement, In vloW
of tho regents' action In forbidding
financial transactions between facul
ty members and students, It Is to bo
wondered wether or not Buch a
chargo Is justified. Could not somo
competent coach havo been secured
for a less salary?
With a definite constitution now at
hand upon which to baso tho organi
zation of tho intor-class debating board
no tlmo should bo lost In undertaking
tho work. Tho members of tho board
should bo olected within a week and
thoy should at onco organize and got
Already it Is impossible to carry
out that provision of tho constitution
which provides for tho selection of
tho. first question boforo tho Christ
mas vacation. If tho proper authori
ties, which in this cubo aro tho class
presidents, Inaugurate immediate ac
tion it will however'bo poBsiblo to car
ry out the rest of tho program pro
vided for. Tho intpr-class debates
aro valuable features and the delay
mlttoo of fivo which picks tho orator
Is to bo oloctod by tho class. Whllo
It is possible that a candidate for or
ator might make np a Blato and push
through Its oloctlon, it is not likely
that such mothods will bo pursued.
That would bo almost too openly po
litical tactics to socuro tho rospect
of tho students for tho man who
would uso such means to gain what Is
roally an Intellectual honor.
It is to bo hoped that othor classes
will follow somo ayBtom similar to
that of tho BophomoreB.
AN OMAHA MEET.
Tho Bchomo of a big indoor athletic
meot In Omaha during March should
bring gratification to overy man who
is Interested in tho Nebraska track
team. Tho holding of such a moot in
Omaha means that Nebraska's ath
letes will havo an opportunity of test
ing their metal against tho represen
tatives of other schools and athletic
clubs. Thoy will gain much by com
petition with strong rivals which thoy
could not gain In practice
But more than any benefit to In
dividuals is tho gain to bo mado by
tho university. Tho Omaha meet,
whllo not undof the direct Jurisdiction
of tho university, will nevertheless bo
popularly connected with tho institu
tion. In this way Nebraska will be
favorably advertised among western
athletes and to somo oxtont over a
larger field. Sho will bo able to as
sume a higher rank, directly through
her management of tho meot as wdll
as through tho betterment which will
come to her athletes.
MIX AND BE SOCIABLE.
Tho collego educated business man
takes tho practical valuo of an edu
cation as a matter of fact. What the
college educated business man clings
to when again ho comos into contact
with his former schoolmates is not
a consideration of practical valuos,
but the sentiment, fellowship, the out-
