First Real Co-Ed Honorary Fraternltyr
The five girls In the lino arts school
who formed -a. local honorary sorority

lost week by tho grand Secretary of
this organization, who said that their
petition would he granted and tho In

If the university roqulrcs moro than
tho student can furnish It Is only an
acknowledgement that ho does not be

WHAT COLLEGE IS FOR.
It seems strange that, after the col
lege haB been in exlstenco for a num
ber "of yonrs, tho question should bo
raised as 'to Its purpose. It Is as if a
housewife, after using a washing ma
chine for ten years, should ask What
a Is for.
Yet the collego presents such a
wide field of activities and different
colleges present them so differently
that tho purpose of tho college Is open
to a number of Interpretations.
President Wilson of Princeton ex-
proBsed his views on the subject us
"No one," he says, "ho over
'dreamed of imparting learning to an
undergraduate Learning Is tho enter
. prise of a.llfo-tlme," Social, physical
(and mental activities aro all In "tholr
particular degree necessary, but
their relative and proper Importance
is not. perceived! by too student. Tho
world calls for men of "quick appre-.
tlon that somes from study, not from
natural readiness or moro prnctlcal
experience. Tho Bido-showa need
not bo abolished, but merely subordi
nated." President Wilson, wo take It, In his
characterization of .the college studont
has particular referonce to tho Btudent
In tho academic college. Ho speaks of
the general comprehensive education
ns tho kind demnryled by the world.
Yot this attitude of the academic Is
llttlo to bo wondered at. Ho gazes
upon tho "clrcim" and finds llttlo that
ho can put to lmmedlnto use. But per
haps In one or tho other of tho nu
merous "sldo-shows" ho may find
something that has special bearing on
his futuro occupation. In consequence
ho makes that side-show ns important
as any of tho studies Included 'in tho
curriculum. Becnuse tho average stu
dent prefers tho Immediate' and tan-
IHblo to tho distant anil Intangible, Is
ho bo tj(uch td blame?

Whether overy sentence will begin
with a giggle and end with" a curl pa

tho front page of tho Dally Nebraskan
tomorrow wlth-the doings of tho asso
ciation. In addition, the columns
usually filled with tld-bjts of .wisdom
mutilated in tho procesn of passing
through- the mind of x the. editor will
,be occupied by real editorials from
the co-ed pen.
