MATERIAL WEALTH NOT A SUCCESS In Germany Men Aro Taught the In significance of Private Interests When Compared With Public Welfare. Governor A. C. Shallonborgcr gave an nddrosa at convocation yesterday. If attendance Is to bo taken as a criterion for judging tho university student appreciation of a visit by the stato chief oxecutive, the governor may consider his mcBBago and his time well repaid. In the course of his lecture, Govor 'nor Shullonberger sovercly censured citizens of the United States for one thing an inability or refusal to rec ogoo the value of public service. He emphasized tho facts that wo owe moro to our state than to ourselves; that wo attribute too much attention to .the accumulation of tho dollar, and as evidence of this evil in other coun tries, he cltod Germany's attempt to initiate this policy of subordination of private to -public interests Into all lier state Institutions. Ho doomed It es sential that we stimulate and develop a certain spirit of American patriotism nnd Impress the obligation of render-' Ing lndlvldual'servlces to our country. He also robuked American people for submitting and yielding themsolvcs to tho politicians' appeal to public sontl ment otherwise public prejudice thereby causing all reform measures to die a promature deuth. Ability to Think. In brlof, Governor Shnllenborgor said: "Tho thing of paramount Impor tance among the numerous things which wo attempt to learn during our university career is the anility to think. Tho majority of us have a jtrxngconcej)tlQnjof what suocesB really Is. Wo haven't been taught to perceive Into tho future and know that tho accumulation of dollars ai)d mate- t rial wealth is not success in fact, It Is an insignificant factor In the field of uctlvltlqs which properly make ono successful. One thing abovo ull that most of us lack is a truo realization of the value and dignity of public ser vice the voluntary service of an Indl- ' virtual dlrectod toward tho betterment of his country. One thing that we all prldo our- solvos In is our origin. Every ono points to his ancestors ub evidence of his worthiness. I, like you, exult In this peculiarity. My ancestors woro all farmers. . First In Pennsylvania, and from there tney may be traced to the slopes of tho Alps, all as poor as the crags upon which they clung-but , frpo. Thoywere as independent as Iho birds that fly; they briwod tp.no autocrat; thoy -knew no aristocracy. Friends, think what It means to live as theso people lived; to throw off the . sovereign shackles, to. enjoy free, dom of speech, politics, and-religion. Who wouldn't bo proud of such a fam ily troo? Who wouldn't cry-out for Immunity from royal ancestry? .'i?..Jtw1cj vnn' dnn't nnnrfflntn fyouth. You have an innate desire to grow up;, to have responsibilities thrust upon you; to bo wealthy ; to be successful. You forgot that the two ifilervcpnd'ltlons ore not synonymous, Wealth Is not success. Gentlemen, af ter due consideration, which ond of ypu.wpujd change places today with Rockefeller, Carnegie and other of our consplcuoiitf conglomorators of the al mighty dollar? 'He, who would has no plage in an Institution of learning. Condition In Germany, VIp .Germany, men. are taught tho insignificance of private interests when compared with public Interests, and as a consequence, tho most ablo.of GcirmunB will Joll for a bare subsist" once- In ordoT thai Ihoy may, T)y lutb He service, remove tho debt which thoy owo to their state. Tlioy con sider it tho highest tribute that man can pny thorn If thoy are reckoned among tho state benefactors. This Is the sjjlrlt that America must $nd will dovelop. "Another of tho great evils of tho American Btato is tho willingness' of Amorican citizens to yield to tho ap peal of polltlclanB-thoroby cauBhTg public prejudice against tho beneficial movements. Truth, gentlemen, will always triumph but not necessarily until tho end. Because of this, poli ticians have bo formulated their pub lic speeches that public projudico has destined a Waterloo for overy reform measure. I, at present, enjoy moro nowor than the king of England If, I however, you should appeal to tho Amorican public to mako mo a king and Invest mo with all kingly powers, thoy would revolt from tho very Idea, but prefer rather to allow mo to exor cise nil. kingly and. Bovorolgn preroga tives under tho name, governor. All because of public projudico. "Tho greatest opportunity for an American effort Is right hero at homo the opportunity for ub to oncourage the development of tho highest typo and character of American citizen ship." Preceding the lecture of tho gov ernor, Miss Malono of tho senior class rendered a piano boIo. Tho senior class has volunteered to provide a musical number at overy convocation, and it the subsequent numbers nro as high clasB us tho one this morning, no ono should fail to hear them.

This ovent Is left open to no veteran except Gra ham. Ilussoll has left school for tho present semester nnd Hummoll will bo out of tho meets on account of an Injured ankle. This leaves the entlro work to Graham, unless some excel lent frcshmnu material develops In tlio.ueat-.fujUire . AtprfiSPJiLther6 are only two men working at. tho pdlo vault outside of Graham. Theso are Llndstrom and Hammond. Hammond hns done no work In the vaulting line except In Indoor meets. Llndstrom hns done most of his vaulting out doors and may be counted-onari a strong man to bacl Graham up In. any. of theso Indoor meets. Ontlrelalreinnriiildillc-TltBtnircD-! runs the university has a good line-up of material, Campbell, Ileod, Burke .and Amberson. arc a quartet of run ners which are hard to beat In the Missouri Valley. Campbell ond Reed are tho mon to represent tho univer sity in the short distance runs, unci with Burko and Amberson on tho mid dle, and long distance runs the univer sity will be represented to ascertain extent. Good Freshman Material. BesldOB theso men as veterans thero are several freshmen who are doing excpllent work,, in track athletics. Funkhausor, who broke tho university record In tho shot-put, will bo an able second to "Sid" Collins with tho weights. Collins for the past two years has been considered ,tho best wolghTman In the Missouri Valley, and his work- will go far in winning meets for the Cornhuskors. In tho (fashes foy, a freshman, Is ono who hos shown up strong, nnd along with him are two sophomores, Powers nnd Flaak. Powers has showed up well. laBt year In tho 220 run nnd also In tho short dash In tho Charter Day moot this year. In the, "hurdles Flack has shown good form and ought to help Dale MacDonald-win points In tho high and low stick runs. This is tho limit of the material' out for par ticipation In these meets.' With, the number of men limited as a rule to the veterans and with the quality of tho newer men unknown, Cuptaln Burke of tho track team has been busy urging more men to got out nnd take an interest In track "work. Freshmen are, not barred from these moots, a,nrt they may. participate If thoy show that they have, tho quality necessary to hold down places on tho teams.-- '' ..-$l8140 At -the 'same tlmo theso men will be All J'i" ' bonolltcd by coaching thoy recolvc for thoso niootK, and thus be better pro pared to win places In the meets which they will ho eligible fdr noxt year on athletic Holds at the univer sity or at other schools. Another sovero handicap to the team will bo the loss of liummell in tho high Jump. Huinmoll was tho best university Jumpor, nnd with his abBcncX) this ovent will all fall to Graham, tho polo -vaulter. Graham has jumped live foot soven Inches, but in thin evont Hummoll had slightly the better of the argument. In tho jump thero aro a numbdr of mon who nro adoptB at this part of track athletics who would bo of valuable assistance to tlio team ft tlioy" would report ' for" practice.
