at WiHconslu and a number of the
other turgor schools of the United
Stiitcs. The luBt Junior Weok piny at
WIbcoiihIii drew tho lurgest crowd in
tllo history or that institution. Thoro
is no reason why It should not bo
equally successful at Nebraska. All
depends on whether tho students care

considered tho big class event. In
fnct It was tho leading social affair.
But whore (ho junior pluy has been

training' and intelligence while the

different. The play Is tho grand
crowning evont of tho week and one
at which all tho university can and
should bo present.
To tho Editor of tho Nobraskan:
Recontly the Rag devoted its edi
torial column to calling tho law stu
dents a bunch of rouli-nocks. Yostor
day It used Its Bpace to toll us that

walks should be stopped and that gos
siping at tho library had become la
mentably common, while today It tells
tis that wo should not walk on the
I realize how dlfllcult it is to find
material for tho editorial column and
that turning out an editorial every
day becomes a grind. Still I thinlc
that somo of the subjects which tho
Rag haB chosen are lamentably shal
low and that they do not warrant dis
cussion, at least not the space that
tho Rag gives them. Take for In
stance tho matter of riding bicycles
on tho sidewalks, which the Rag would
lead us to beliove has become n seri
ous nuisance, demanding immediate
attention. As far as I can see tho of-
fondorfl consist of a fpw nrofoflflors
who oro willing to sacrifice dignity to
speed, that they may devoto a Tow ex
tra minutes to breakfast before hur
rying to their eight o'clocks. Who
would bo so heartless as to deprive
them of this small privilege? Wo can
Thon, too, calling the laws names
helps nothing. Bveryono knows that
tho laws are noisy and that thoy have
boon, slnco any 'one remembers.
Probably thoy always will bo. But
who can oxpoct a bunch of lusty
lunged Btudonts, deprived of tho soft
ening influence of tho co-eds and con
fined In a small corridor to bo silent
and dignified? Why should thoy?
Tho editor attacks another custom
that has always existed and most llko
ly always will. He objects to the Btu
donts goBsipIng at tho library en
trance. Ho says: "It is no credit to
tho university to liavo a largo number
of men and women out on the front
Bteps . . . this condition has bo
come Intolerable and those people
., ,. . should-bo r-ofuscd-ttdmisslou-L
to the library." How ridiculous! Bo
cause a friend meets a friend on tho
library steps and stops to talk things
over he should be refused admission
to tho library! NoRher do I agreo
with tho editor when ho says "has be
come." I cannot soo that there Is
any more conversing on the library

copt that tho warm weather has mado
It possible to linger longer outside.
Perhaps the editor would llko to turn
tho university Into a convent. As to
tho presence of tho students on tho
stops being no credit to tho university,
it certainly Is no discredit. The
broadening influence that conies from
mingling with ones follows, to say
nothing of. the pleasure that coiiicb
from It, Is'ono of tho most beneficial
Influences that a university possesses.
Were It not for this we might as well
do our studying with a' correspond
In ending, I will add that I am In
sympathy with tho Rag, that I appre
ciate tho efforts made to mako It a
good paper, and that my criticisms are
made that It may profit by them. So
omit tho knocks and tho editorials
about tho trivial, potty things and fill
your columns Instead with boosts and
things mora vital to the development
of tho university and tho student
body. ROBERT L. FERGUSON.
