MAN AND MAIDCLIMB TREE
BUT PROMINENT JUNIOR8 WERE
ONLY DOING IT IN RE-
HEAR8AL FOR PLAY.
It is supposed to bo an established
fact that when folk become college
students they refrain from Indulging
in some of tho pastimes of their child
hood, yet a discovery was made tho
other day concerning two prominent
juniors that would tend to rebut this
It was in a near-by "orchard" that
the two wero seen discriminate es
saying a cozy nook formed by the
spreading limbs of ono of the trees.
Their desire was to attain tho dizzy
height. So without deliberation and
other dignified accessories, they clung
to the bark and climbed to the top of
the tree, where they disappeared Into
Tho whole performance was truly
shocking. Yet It loses its charm when
upon Investigational Iss Hostetler and
Mr. Coffee, the culprits in the case,
were found to be merely rehearsing
ono of their situations for a play in
which they carry tho leading parts.
The next time this little perform
ance is pulled off, they aver, it will
bo for the benefit of tho public. The
occasion will bo tho second act of "A
Royal Family," which the Juniors will
give at tho Oliver, Friday night.

decision was reached af,tor some dis
cussion, and is duo to tho charactor
of tho tipora, which, to attain Its full
possibilities, demands real fominino
The music Is of a high order and
would bo ruined by any attempt at
burlesque. Contrary to tho prevailing
opinion, the opera is not to be exclu

Favorite Haunt of Campus Is In Wery
Somo years ago the class of '06
showed that it still was Imbued with
the truo Nebraska spirit and donated
to tho campus a stone soat. This was
erected around a tree near the library
and thero it still remains, but In a
very sad plight. -Every since it's first
appearanco on tho campus it has been
a source of pleasuro to lass and lad
who had a few moments between
classes. Moreover, It added a touch
of beauty to the campus. It then cor- ,
tainly seems regrettable that it should
now be in the condition in which it
Is; half of It has been allowed to fall
down almost entirely and the rest of ,
it Is the worse for many cracks, and
this half, too, Is ready to tumble down
at any moment.
Jt seems desirable that the old seat
be put in good repair for the warm
spring afternoons when a demand for
its use will again arise. Then, too,
perhaps it Is due to the class that
gave this remembrance that 'It be appreciated.
