This Is the last Issue of the Dally
Nebraskan until Thursday morning,
A knocker Is bad enough, but sonic
of these sneak thlcvcB havo all the
soiiB of the hammer beat forty ways.
For example, one of theBO gentleman
ly looking crentureB walked .into our
ofllco ycBtorday and displaying nil tho
Innocence of a little child, picked up a
copy of tho Nebraskan J list as though
he were a subscrltier. Ho stood
around a whllb nnd nfter rending a
few momentB folded the wholo paper
there is not a charity organization
within the university to give nlms to
these poor victims of financial depression.
Wo believe that if any collogo
should uphold the fundamental prin
ciples of Justice, tho law college
should, V beljevo-tlmt thfe law col
lege should be a democracy so far as
possible and not an absolute monar
chy; but we further believe that tho
law college of Nebraska has violated
absolutely these standards by not an
nouncing the Theta Kappa Nu's and
freBhmcn law prizes, yesterday .morn
ing. In tho first plnce, law is based upon
custom and precedent and as soon as
theBe are ignored especially without
notice or BtibBequent explanation
there is no element of democracy in
the administration, and the will of the
power In control is tho only law
known. Are concessions and awards
of merit to be thrown out as it pleas
eth the master? It has been the cus
tom for sevornl years to announce th
law honorB on the same day that tho
Ph Beta Kappas are made known, and
any breach of this custom is at onco
a shock to every one, especially when
no explanation is offered, to sny noth
ing of a sufllclont and acceptable rea
son or excuse.
It would be just as fair to call an
assembly for the announcement of the
Phi Beta Knfipus and then only have a
debate. Would this be fair to tho stu
dents of this Institution? Would it be.
"to fulfill that whlph wo itfay reason
ably expect from another or othors"?
-TJicXQ-JJL another feature: the fresh
men prizes are In trust to oo given"
out on this occasion, and a breach of
that trust I believe is a just cause for
tho highest indignation, if not absolute
mutiny. The writer is Just a law stu
dent 'who haB no hopes for any prize,
but who has u little sense of juBtico.
The Temple high school -class play
will bo given in the Temple theater
For Men. In gray and brown, in
pencil curl telescope. One of the
classiest hat I ever had for $2.50
up, put It in his pocket and walked
out. WaB that nerve? No. It was
simply the act of a genuine cheap
skate trying to Impose on the good na
ture of tho Nebraskan circulation de
partment, and get all he could for
nothing. How strange It is that the
paper is not worth their money but
they will go clear out of their way and
steal a copy. Is It the money? No, it
1b the nature of the brute.
This Is getting to bo a qommon oc
currence. There is not a morning
goes by but what tho circulation man
receives calls for papers from about a
dozen who are not subscribers. These
callB are In the nature of the request
of tho little waif who says "Gimme a
nickel." It Is most unfortunate that
