Idea and Purpose.
The idea of a University Night is a
new one at Nebraska. Similar affairs
are current In rilffp.rpntMuilvnrq ltleB of
the United States, among them 1111
nois, West Point and Nevada, and
have proven so successful that they
have become traditions In those insti
tutions. The purpose of University Night Is
to give each organization in the school
an opportunity to present their lines
of entertainment before the university
public. It is also thought that by this
scheme tho many societies can be
brought into a closer relationship to
It requires no more than a glance at
the program to know that it is a
"hummer." Weeks have been spent
in the preparation and no pains have
been scared to make it pleasing. Both
the serious and frivolous are much in
"A sketch of university life as seen
by a freshman" Is laughable to say
the leost. for the cadets seem to have
discovered many amusing Incidents.
The Glee club makes Its first appear
nnce before university people under
tho new organization and will render
several selections, all of which will
be serious (?). "A Medic's Revenge"
is given in order to show tho people
of the state the .dexterity of tho com
ing doctors; and let them know that
their .appropriations are not being
wasted. .M'nrlo Douglass and' Earl
Sage will star In "A Pair of Lunatics."
The wise ones refuse to say that many
tears will be shed.
The, College Inquisition.
Tho grand finale Is "The College In
quisition," by the fraternity minstrels
and a special orchestra. One of the
ctist, weary from many hours of re
hearsal, talked In his sleep, and from
what ho said It is safe to assort that
the delinquency committee will ap

GOVERNOR ALDRICH SPEAKS
ADDRES8E8 LARGE GATHERING
SHOULD TRAIN THE MIND TO THINK
IS NOT THE PURP08E TO MAKE
IT A STOREHOUSE.
Speaker Declares College Course Is of
Much Importance, Though Greek
or Algebra Is 8eldom .
Used In Life.
A large audience greeted Governor
C. H. Aldrlch on his first appearance
before University or Nobrnska stu
dents. Those who heard him agreed
that his address waB one or the best
that tho students have had an oppor
tunity to hear this year. A large num
ber or the faculty were present.
Govornor Aldrlch snld ho never rolt
more at homo In his lire and never
rclt younger. It had not been so very
long since he had been In college and
attended convocation, becnuso It was
compulsory. He said that slnco ho
had had nothing to do since tho HrBt
or January the audience might expect
n very carefully prepared speech.
The Purpose of School.
Mr. Aldrlch wondered If the stu
dents really comprehend what they
Trrc-tn -thO"linTVTraIty,ToT: Tmr-qireiF-Hon
has been asked students for ageB
and has been discussed all over tho
world. The speaker thought It augured
ror the people or this country that
the question has been so all-absorbing
In the United States. The American
nation will be whatever our citizens
make it. Each and every one Is n
government builder, and stamps Ills
ohnructor upon it In somo way or
other. Everyone then should bo abfo
to act Intelligently upon all matters
that will affect tho public.
Tho governor said ho used to Im
agine that about all an education wns
for was to make the mind a storehouse
of all sorts of Information. Slnco
then ho has changed his mind. Ho
told some of his colleges experiences.
He had, to get his degree, to take
four or five years or Greek and Latin,
and a number or other hard studies
and had practically no olectlves. When
he got through college he had hoped
to get n superlntendency of tho
schools or some great city, but finally
contented himself with going to
UlyBees, Neb. At the present time ho
probably could not read much Greek
or Latin, he had never used geometry
or algebra in his work as a practicing
attorney, yet his. college course hail
been of Inestimable Importance to 1)1 in
In whatever he had done. '
Learn How to Think.
The speaker said an education was
to teach us how to think and how to
act. it is necessary to pursue those
studies which require evary atom of
strength the student possesses. The
way to be taught how to think Is to
think. So by pursuing tho courses
which reqnire tho most thought,
you will bd beter equipped for. hard
thinking In after life, Wo uncon
sciously pursue the saints habits of
thought when meeting tho problems
'pt life that we follow In school, When
you get out of school tho world does
not core what degreo you have or what
your proficiency was in college. The
question will be, "Can you mnko
good?'.' . , ' .
The governor urged his hearers not."
