custom' for the purposo of leav

lasting memorial to commemorate
tho happy-busy years which 'they ..
had spent" in tho University of
Nebraska, and to pay tribute to
the great institution that they
would in a. short timo 'call their
Alma Mater.
Tie said it was fitting that they
should express their gratitude t
