may bo consoling to tho long suffer

column will burden tho paper only
once a week, and that tho outbursts
will deal with phases of college life,
and not with Buch oxhlllarating topics
as "unity," "mass," and "coherence."

SOME "RAG" HISTORY.
Prof. E. "V. Washburn, of tho Uni
versity of Illinois, called at our ofilco
ono day last weok (In tho terminology
of tho small county newspaper) and
wo wish to stato publicly that wo
more than enjoyed tho call.
Washburn was tho first business
manager of the Dally Nobraskan. In
1900 ho became managor of tho
Weekly Nobraskan Hesperian, which
was at that time about thirty years
old. It was under his administration
that a stock company was formed to
put tho paper on a moro solid basis,
and that tho now "name and daily
policy woro adopted.
Tho Dally Nobraskan, as originally
incorporated, was owned by students
and faculty members. Tho capital
stock amounted to two thousand dol
lars, distributed in shares of five dol
lars each. A board of directors was
olected, composed of two students,
two faculty mombers and ono alum
nus, J. W. Crabtroo was tho first
president of tho board. It was under
this management that tho original
"Rag" was published, with Mr. Hal
Roberts as editor-in-chief.
Whilo wo are referring to tho work
of tho "old-timers" and pioneers, it is
not out of placo that wo go a stop
further and honor them. Thoy dot
servo credit for tho work thoy did.
