The program on Ivy Day has always been Impressive, and yesterday's program was no oxeoption to the rule. The weather was all that could bo asked for.

As a piece of scholarly' work 'and as a prc seiitatipn of dcop thought and ii'i .teiffld patriotism, tlie oration wS .generally concoded to be one of tho greatest over dolivored by a student of tho university. Ivy Day Honored Custom. . In beginning, Mr. Rico said that tlie class had assembled in accordance with a time honored custom' for the purposo of leav ing upon tho campus a fitting and 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 thjj acuity, tho chancellor, tho regents, and tho whole state for the good education that' they had 1UUUIVUU. . . In discussing the planting of the ivy, Mr. Rice compared it. with ibd lifoo a student in the university. The. freshman,, like tho ivy, is small and weak, Small and weak in mind, if not in body. They plant themselves in the rich fields of learning in the univer- . sity. They put forth their onor gicB, like tho tendrils of tho ivy. in search of knowledge, light and truth., After four years under the influence of tho university, with its fostering care, protec tion 'and support, they are ho longer the sprout, but tho grow ing plant. A Worthy Aim. ' - ' The closing paragraph of the oration was as follows: "Let us, then, hero this morn ing, make a firm resolve to sup plement .the education wo have received, with a life of industry and energy, with a life of useful ness. Lot us by cultivating tho virtues of honesty, " integrity, charity, and: justico toward "ail, , build iov ourselves a character that Will bo an inspiration and an example to those whom misfor Qontinuecl ouPafeQ 2 i m 3 ;) .'!
