THE DAILY NEBRA8KAN
FORESTERS ARE ADVERTISERS
STUDENTS CARRY PRAISE OF
NEBRASKA DURING SUMMER
So soggy It will hardly go down
If yon never hnvo met thin doctor's
Hun like - when you sec one keep
out of it r Bight.
The wide dispersal of the forestry
students during tin summer montliH
each year gives rise to a considerable
amount of advertising of our school at
Nebraska among many other large in
Htitntions thruoul the country This
iH an item of no mean alue to the
school, for it is a thing to he desired
that the 1'niversity should he known
uh a live wire and mean more than a
mere name to the more distant schools
with which there is usually hut little
The area covered by the foresters is
great For example, this past sum
mer there were twenty-eight men in
the held from the l'niversity of Ne
braska, who were located from New
York to the coast range in California
and from the Canadian border in Mon
tana to Texas. Kvery state west of
Nebraska, except two. had at least one
forest with a Nebraska student on it
The fact that the men were so largely
scattered does not, however, signify
ho much as the fact that they were in
intimate contact with foresters from
other schools. It is this close rela
tlonship with the men from many dif
ferent schools that brings Nebraska
to bo known far more widely than oth
erwise. There is nothing that will
make men know .each other better
than to work side by side in the Held,
and every college man delights in tell
ing of the glory of his own school. So
it is, that thru the toil of the long sum
mer months each forester is doing his
duty by the school back here in Lin
coln, by sticking up for it thru thick
and thin and nwor tiring in praising
its sterling finalities.
Hut advertising may be either good
or bad and some may fear we do a
poor job. With these we have but lit
tle time to argue, but can say that
from the very large per cent of Ne
braska men who have made good in
the Held we certainly can hold out
place with all comers.

THE LIFE OF A FOREST HANGER
The poets have written their songs of
Of the man who loves to toil,
Who is stirring around before dav
And who burns the midnight oil.
Hut I waken the Muse to show good
Of the wiser Hanger Man.
Who inner will work unless lio must.
And who loafs whenever lie can
lie watches the struggles of the other
Witli a calm, superior smile;
For as long as they work
He knows he can rest and write his
For the dov eminent takes care of th
And so it will ever b",
So why should he struggle and worry
When he Hs a good living free
The only true philosophy
Is that of the Hanger Man,
Who never will work unless he must,
And who loafs whenever he can
He has no cause to lny up wealth.
I le has no cause to na e.
For the (iov eminent will pay his sal
ary through life,
And the couhty will dig bis grave
The Hanger's liTe is Jov
His days are speii' 111 play;
llis weeks aie fun without illlnv ,
His months one luippv round dc lav
Hut just to Keep himHcIf in dim.
He works a bit each day
Monday sees a mile of trail.
Hlocked by a landHllde's fall
He mends a couple of bridges frail.
And cuts a grade on a canyon wall.
Hut aside from putting the grade in
He does no work at nil
Tuesday finds him full of sand,
And clean as a chimney sweep,
lie rides ten miles to the dilveway
And tallies ten thousand sheep.
Hut seeing this trifle duty done.
He spends the day In sleep
Wednesday morning some tourists
Ixmdod with ignorance, matches
Well primed to set the Forest allame
And burn the timber straight and
He trailed them until they were sale
Hut otherwise did no woik at all
Thursday a couple of thieves he
Filing fake claims to get the wood
This day's work almost came to
For they were friends of Senator
Hut after the gang was safe In jail,
He loafed as a Hanger should
Friday he made a timber sale
With u certified diw.k an Kucurity;
He figured the stand by the decimal
And branded "V. S." on every tree
So while ho might have done some
He passed the day in ecstasy.
And Saturday, like the rest of the
He played at tennis and golf and
He shod his pony, cleaned the creek
Hurtled some litter and built a stall
Hut generally speaking, the livelong
He wrote his reports that's all
The Forest Hangers' mottoes stand.
"Create, Protest, Hestore,"
To help home builders with the land
And bring comfort on every hand
Now and forever more
Seedtime and harvest he computes
And from her plontlous store
.Summons Uaine Nature's attributes;
To make two saplings shoot theli
Where one shot heretofore.
lie stops the Pies that send the floods
Which tear the valley lloor,
And ruin the farmer's corn and spuds
So the two cows mil) chew their cuds
Where one cud heretofore
Where onl.v sage and cacti grow;
With ditch and reservoir.
Fed from the mountain's protected

Where Hone (lowed heretofore
And as the fruit of his master- hand
And knowledge of Forest lore.
Hearing the Stockman's glaring brand
We sec a team of horses stand
Where one stud heretofore.
So here's to the Hanger's fireside.
May his tribe increase galore.
And may ten Forest Hangers ride
On road or trail or steep divide,
Where one rode heretofore
Trees grow on mountain sides, in re
mote country districts, and In some
residential districts They furnish
shade, presidential timber, and when
sliced thin, delicious breakfast foods.
Trees are useful for cutting down,
and furnish occupation for the other
wise unemployed In the form of rail
road ties, they furnish a basis for
bond Issues and for stock market
Trees may be oak, beech, chestnut,
or elm, but they are always popular
They make excellent Hre. especially
when made Into some novels.
Trees ure brown and green, but
when made into paper are gj'iierally
yellow. This is when they bark loud

hanging purposes. Now we use In

the advance in civilization.
Among rock-a-bye babies the tree
top Is a favorite. Iater on the Christ

the only tree used Is the hat-tree.
Americans consider themselves su

cut them so. Llpjdncot's.
