They consider It will be no small
honor to tho University of Nebraska
that she. shall be the mother of an or

that" tho Initiative has been taken,
will becomo a national affair. Already
the girls have an invitation to install

,A large audience collected at regu
lar convocation yesterday for tho pur
pose of hearing a lecture by Dr, C. E.
Barber of New York, his lecture was
to havo been delivered under tho aus
pices of tho university Y. M. C. A
but because of inefficient train service
tfio speaker of ,tho day failed to make
nn appearance,. A timely suggestion
from tho renr of the room prompted
Professor Grummann to request Dr.
Lelnnd of this city to speak until tho
arrival of Dr, Barber.
Dr, Lelnnd gavo a brief address.
Previous to tho announcement of Dr
Loland, a request was modo that at
Thursday's convocation tho lowor
seats of Memorial hall bo reserved for
the men and tho gallery softs bo gra
ciously given to tho fair co-ods. To
this roquoBt Dr. Iceland made an Incl
dental quotation from the following
pnsBugo or serlpluro: "God made man
a little lower than tho angols."
In the course of his talk Dr. Lvland
emphasized tho expediency of organ
izing a world's federation or Chris
tian workers and designated the uni
versity students or today us tho poo
plo to promote this work and accom
plish this taHk. Bocuuso of thoir do
tailed work In specific lines or study
because ns professional men thoy will
prove export londors, Dr. LoTnnd
assigned to them tho duty of leader
ship in tho reformation of this world
to tho right chnnnols of religion and
"Trained mon," ho said, "aro want
ed; they alwuys will bo wanted, for In
them only can training bo found which
Is commensurate with tho Intricacies
of tho great rollglous and moral prob
loms thnt today may result from the
slightest provocation."
In conclusion Dr. Lelnnd Bnld; "In
stitutions of loarning should be hit In
spiration to ovory young -man. Thoy
should detcrmlno tho courso of young
people's educational training and
should so inspiro him or her with the
thought of thoir obligation to the
world that they can surpass all others
In actual work. Ho who does not re
ceive this Inspiration loses ono of tho
greatest of university contributions."
