FRESHMAN LAWSUPAGAINST IT
EMBRYO ATTORNEY8 ARE ASKED
TO MOVE FROM 8ECOND
FLOOR OF U. HALL.
Wanted A recitation room.
Tho freshman law claBS is again in
trouble. They aro so numerous and
noisy that there are no rooms for
them to recite In.
During tho past semester they have
been using the second floor of Univer
sity Hall. However, tho professors in
that vicinity, not caring for tho gentle
littlo Bongs and cheers, havo emphat
ically demanded that they bo moved
to some other part of the building for
the rest of tho year.
So the Registrar, on the schedule,
put all their classes In U. 304. Dean
Hastings thinks that room Is needed
more for uppor classmen than for the
meek littlo freshmen. He suggests
the Temple as a place of refuge.
Anyone with a solution wil please
see the authorities.

DR. JONES CONVOCATION
8PICE8 FATHERLY ADVICE WITH
WELCH WIT IN ADDRE88 BE
"Tho classics are in danger of tie
ing discounted in the modern curricu
lum of the college course," said Dr.
Jenkin Lloyd 'Jones of Chicago in a
talk to the students at Convocation
yesterday. "Tho teBt of llfo, after all,
is tho amount of onjoyment we can
obtain from It, and if a collego educa
tion does not open your eyes to new
beauties and train your ears to ap
preciate new harmonies, you had hot
ter go home, ovon though you might
get your diploma.
"It is excusable if a fellow without
any chance goes nround with a grouch
on his face, but it would never do for
you. Don't go homo and peddle in
digo; spread cheerfulness, radiate
sunshine PcBsimlBm Is based on
ignoranco; optimism 1b tho sequel of
study. If thoro is ono thing that col
lege culture should give you, it is the
gift of sunshine" n
Dr. Jones gave tho students somo
excellent advice, impressing upon
them tho things that really count In
life. He encouraged them to appreci
ate tho opportunities that lay before
them, and to make tho most of their
advantages. His remarks wcro given
in a kind and fatherly way, and his
anecdotes and Welch wit-combined to
make it an address which was highly
appreciated and onjoyed.
Ho Is a man of national renown and
morlts woll his reputation. He Ib de
voted to litorature and tho classics,
and is a great lover of Drowning, Ho
is tho organi'or of tho Browning So

NEBRASKAN STAFF WILL
CLOSE JfEAR THIS WEEK
ORGANIZATION OF PEN-WIELDERS
READY TO QUIT AND BE GOOD.
PLEAD FOR A LARGER PAPER'
Cornhusker Dally 8heet Far Behind
Smaller School In 8lze
For Lincoln and Vicinity: Fair and
slightly colder. Thursday's tempera
ture: Maximum, 34; minimum, 31.
Tho work of tho presont Nebraskan
staff is almost done, and we quit with
our Tuesday's Issue. Then wo shall
turn our attontlon to our examina
tions, which havo been calling our
serious cogitation for somo littlo timo.
During this semester we havo tried
to ploaso the studonts in our efforts
to collect tho daily campus nows and
condense It on tho pages of tho col
lego papor so that thoy might know
what is taking place. Wo aro awaro
of the fact that wo havo mado mis
takes, but whon ono considers that wo
aro only human, this undoubtedly can
not be hold against us. Next Tuosday
morning, promptly at 11:00 a. m., Wo
shall put tho oil cloth covers on our
typewriters, screw tho top on tho
pasto can (If we don't forgot), jcork
up tho ink bottlo, and withdraw from
tho office of the Daily Nebraskan.
It Is not without a tinge of regret
that wo will do this, although our
duties at times have been hard and
disappointing; howover, wo wish tho
now Nebraskan staff much success
and pleasure in tho work of putting
out the collogo newspaper that wo aro
about to leave behind us.
Yot, boforo wo go, wo should like
to say a fow words regarding tho
futuro success of tho Daily Nebras
kan. To make this paper a success
ovory student in tho University Is no
doubt awaro that It will take tho con
tlnunl cn-nnnratlnn or tho ntnrinnt !
body. Why can't wo put out a papor
with five columns Instead of four.
Other schols aro doing it, and some
of those oth'er schools cannot boast of
the collogo spirit or of tho enrollment
that Nebraska can. Therefore, It la
tho duty of every student who Is re
ceiving the benefits of our University
to think upon this question and to
subscrlbo for tho Daily Nebraskan at
once if ho has not already dono so.
A few months ago the University'
of Kansas received flvo hundred new
subcsrlptions to their paper, which,,
at that time was not a dally, but with
tho now subscriptions they found it
to their advantage t6 make tho paper
a dally and put It on a more substan
tial basis. Tho Daily Nobraskan has
been a dally publication for a good
many years, though at present It has -,
not tho number of columns as, for In
stance, the Daily Kansan has, which
had its birth as a dally only a few
'Now, students pf4he. University of
Nebraska, are we going to let Kansas
beat us in our respective efforts In
putting out a 9d, strong, enthusias

them In football' and In 'other lines
commonly known as college activity.
Accord(ngty why should we be beaten
In the publication problem, when we
