ON nro KANSAS
Dr. Soupuk of thoAuBtrlan parlia
ment gave an Interesting locturp bo
foro tho Komensky club on Saturday
evening on tho "Students' Social and
Political Lifo In Bohemia." ,
Ho' said that if tho students wish
to form a club or publish a paper thoy
must first got . permission from the
polllical authorities, and ii usually
takes about a yoar to got such per
mission. The students are undor the
supervision of not only the college
but also the civil authorities. All
public, students' meetings must come
under tho official censorship of the
government. No meeting may be hold
unless the subject and purposo is an
nounced, some time in advance. The
reason for this ia, the fact that tho
government fears another students'
uprising such as the one of 1848,
when the students were at the head of
a revolutionary movement to get. a
new constitution f or Bohomla. 'These
students were exiled from the coun
try and were the first Bohemian em
migrants to America.
'Ho observed how froo the students
woro in expressing their views In tho
unlvnrnltv nnnnrn nrvrt that. riip.1i tran-
LSdom of press was not allowed in tho
nivorsity papers of Europe.
'': Praises America.
"Dr. Soupup spoke very onthuBias-
ically about America and its people,
but ho predicted that China would be
tho country of the future. He said
that culture and power had boon mov
ing westward, starting in India and
coming west to Greece, Italy, Ger
many, England, until now the United
States are tho nvpst powerful and cul
tured nation, but ho prophesied that
the position that tho United States
' now holds among tho other nations
would eventually bolong to China.
What ho especially admired about
America was that wo are not under
armament like all tho countries of
Europe with the exception of Belgium
and Switzerland. He said that in Bo
hemia every young man at the ago 'of
21 must start a two years' service la
the army, which is the principal rea
son that the peasantry is always so
poor. Another reason ho gavo for
this is the tax that Is put on every
article of food use! by tho people.
Injustice In Politics.
To give some Idea of tho Injustice
of Austrian politics ho stated that out
of tho 242 members of the Austrian
parliament only seventy can bo elect
ed by the votes of 1,000;000 common
people: Thirteen members are elected
by only thirty-three rdyal families.
Fifty-four are elected by only 347
other noble families, so the nobility
easily have tho majority.
Dr. Soukup is a member of the So-
clallstle Democratic party, which is
the party of the common people.. "'
He aajd that the University q; Ne
braska ranked well with all the other
universities he had visited.

The plan of the university authori

not an" ontlro success.
Miss Ensign is trying to reserve the
second Saturday of each month for tho
club meetings. Many students, how
ever, belong to tvo or more clubs,
causing considerable trouble to do-
clde as' to which one they shall go.
It is thought by many that the pres
