At the risk of bocoming monot
onous wo must again burst forth
on tho subject of song. The de
cision of the Nebraska song eon
test committee which was given
out yesterday may be disappoint
ing to the students who have
been awaiting tho appearance of
tho true Nebraska song. It may
oven soom like the dangerous
lack of decision upon which we
have , commontcd sovcral times.
The matter, howevor, should
not bo dismissed with this hasty
judgment. Tho verdict of the
. ;studont body should depond upon
the kind of -a song tyo student
body wants for tho true Nebras
A song that will bo popular for
a time will not answer tho pm
pose. A song that contains the
highest art and the best poetry
will not answeiuthe purpose. It
is tho song with tho snap, with
the life, with the true Nebraska
spirit that we want.
"We cannot forco the students

tho same degree of enthusiasm.
It is a high ideal. But not too
high. ' No amount of grinding

composition will over attain it.
It must bo inspired.
Is this too much to usk of a

only commend tho action of the

braska with a song which thoy
