Tho mombors or the Y. M. C A. who
are taking an active Interest in thla
Work should bo given a great deal of
credit for what they have accom

is by no moaiiB an easy one and the

Tho extensive 1 improvements which
woro mndq on tho campus during the
summer months should meet the com

Now that tho sorority season is "over
it Ib hoped that tho excltelnont of tho
glrB of tho university will be pacified
for at. least two months. However,
sororities are a necessary part of ev
ery cojlege, flie same as fraternities.
Thetato Journal, however, states
tbiSit "according to sorority ideals a
girl hasno close friends outside of her
small and unimportant society," If
this Is the case, Ihen It is tlmo thnt
tho sororities at Nebraska woro abolh

Into tho future. But at the same time
they aro not narrow enough to allow,
their members to move only In the
strict society of Its own organization.
Tho glrlB at Nebraska aro broad
minded enough to realize that they
would be classed aB a organization of
"hei.B" by tho Btudont body if this
wore tho enso. This Ib not tho caso

organizations, firBt becnuso the girls

SERVES GINKGO FRUIT.
Dr. Bessey Treats Friends to Pink Ber
ries of the Orient.
"Have you cvor Been tho fruit pf tho
Ginkgo treo?" Dr. Bessey has received
a candy box, filled with pretty pink
berries, which was aent to him from
tho state of Washington. He carried
tho fruit In his pocket yesterday, ask
ing his frlonds to have a bite. The
fruit 1b very delicious but the odor
Ib not at all agreeable. At least that
is tho story told by some of Dr. Bos
One university professor, who had a
bad cold In his head, ato the fruit en
thusiastically. Several hours later, he,
however, was hoard to remark, "I
tasted that miserable thing for six

tho fruit eaten and tho seeds returned

Although the ginkgo fruit, when ripe
looks very much llko a pink plum. Its
odor Is moro llko that of a musty col
lar. The ginkgo trees grow in Japan,
the eastern parts of Korea and China,
and in the stnccB or Oregon and Wash

residents of these two western states
are fond of thorn as one of their best
foods. It is the favorltw fruit of the
