STUDENT REPORTER HAS
ADVENTVRE IN ART HALL
GREAT EXHIBIT CONTAINS GEMS
WHICH HE ENJOYED.
MUST HAVE FEELING FOR ART
Visitor Encounters Strange Feeling
When Taken for an Art
An unsuspecting reporter visited the
art exhibit yesterday evening to pro
(Sure a few aesthetic facts on art. The
reporter cannot remember much that
happened over there, as it was alleged
on the start that he did not have much
appreciation of art for art's sako, and
it took most of his time trying to be
come reconciled to this fact. How
ever, the story runs in .the following
A True Story.
Ye reporter was ushered Into a long
room in the Library Building which is
called the "Art Gallery." There were
many(people there, who were admiring
the picturea on the walls. Ye reporter
did his best to admire ye said pictures,
but not having the proper art training,
he was totally at a loss. Yo reporter
learned that it took many a year of
irksome toil to arrive at that point
where one could fully appreciate the
little dashes of the artist's brush in
making hills and valleys on canvas so
that they looked natural. Neverthe
less, ye reporter thoroughly filled him
self with interest as ho gazed at the
pictures around him, even with the
limited knowledge he possessed of
what was bad.
Reporter Learns of Art.
Ye said reporter had his own views
regarding what was pleasing to the
eye, but ho soon found that his vIcwb
did not amount to very much. There
fore he did his best to got the ideas
of those-who professed to know.
Ye reporter was tojd that a certain
picture known as "The Valley of the
Deer Field" waB very good, as it gave
one the idea of a typical New England
valley covered with snow, all of which
is brought out clearly and distinctly
on the canvas. Yo picture known as
"Hill and Meadow" Is another New
England scene noted not for its win
try effects, but rather summery atmo
sphere. This picture, so ye reporter
was told, Is very famous. Many peo
ple, It was stated, admired a picture
known as "The Blue Cup." This is a
reproduction of a yoling housewife
holding a blue cup in her hands.
Many Good Pictures.
There are many other pictures of in
terest on ye walls of ye art exhibit
which no doubt ye students of yo Uni
versity of Nebraska would bo glad to
see If ye had the proper degree of in
terest to buy a ticket.
Yo reporter was -much chlded for
not having made, his appearance be
fore, and because he did not appreci
ate art. Ye reporter was told to havo
some one else sent over who did know
something about the beautiful things
on all sides, and this in the future
will be done, Yo reporter gladly gives
iip the job.

- BY ANONYMOUS WRITER
HAS CANNON BEEfQ DONATED TO
QUEER QUESTIONS OF QUEERNMPLE
Relic of War Days Still Stands in the
"Front Yard of the
Tho old cannon which has graced
Nebraska's campus Blnco tho date of
the military ball Is tho object of no
small amount of attention. Not that it
is a new nrrlval. Oh, no! On tho
other hand, Its lengthy atay on tho
campuB Is what has caused so much
attention. One inquirer has submitted
the following interesting account of
"Ever since tho military ball wo havo
all noticed that tho old cannon which
continually meets our gazo as wo paBS
In and out of the campus gato has
nover been removed from its impos
ing position "In tho front yard." Every
day wo hear students eagerly ask
whether or not tho old relic of tho
War of tho Rebellion has been pre
sented to the University of Nebraska.,
In view of tho fact that wo cannot
answer this question with any degree,
of accuracy, our answer is Wo do not"
"If It should bo tho good fortuno of
our University to havo obtained this
old muzzlo-loador, with its prehistoric
powder-box in the rear, wo should like1
to know at onco whoso honor It will
bo to deliver the presentation speech;
or, on tho other hand, If It Is to bo
roturned to Company "F" of Lincoln,.
Nebraska, wo should Hko very much
o know when.
"Owing to tho particular position
this old cannon holds on our camnus.
we are well awaro of tho fact that all
measures should be taken to keep It
with us. Can it bo doubted that any
better scene could bo viewed any
where than some fair co-ed grasofully
perched on tho big barrel, with her
dauntless cavalier standing near-by,
during thoso long warm spring days
when ovon tho most studlpus show
symptoms of spring fovor? For a long
timo It has boon a problom of how to
beautify tho campus; accordingly wo
think tho old cannon had best remain
at any expense, for wo believe that
no greater- artistic touch could bo
realized than such a scene."
