NATURE HUMAN AND OTHER
WISE. . . . "Tho uncertain glory of an
Which now hIiowh all tho beauty of
And by and by a cloud takes all
Tho Two CJentlemen of Verona.
This uncertain bouhou of the year
1b now upon uh, it cubIb its alturnat
ing gloom and exuberance upon ub
and leaeB our minds in a whirl.
Tho Biinny morningH remind uh ot
the HiicceHHeH we liae achieved, and
tho plans we hae lor the summer
Wo hae isions ot our more present
able grades, our social victories, and
our llnancial obligations well met
Wo recall that eentful day when we
made the Ulank club, or that evening
when it stopped raining just as it was
time to start for the Prom.
Such lllghts of fancy, and bursts of
enthusiasm uro scarcely completed
when a shower ot cold rain dampens
clothing and spirits, and our mental
kaleidoscope tuniB to a consideration
of the darker objects. Tho condition
in 14 looniB up liko a sunken
hulk, tho prospect of hunting a job
among heartless employers causes us
to shrink -into a shell of "what'B-the-ubo,"
and tho memory of that time
when we Bpent several dollars fool
iBhly brings up tho picture of a yjtit nl
letter home and a llery answer
Such are the vagaries of the season,
we must endure them and resist as
far as posbible, that the storms within
may not piove too strenuous lor the
THE OTHER SIDE.
In Saturday's "Rag" appeared an
article In which it was stated that a
certain coed had eused her con
science, perturbed at a gift of flowers,
with tho Idea that by accepting them
she was preventing her friend from
spending tho money on tobacco or
pool. What a soothing thought!
PorhapB tho resourceful co-ed does
not know that tho price of a modest
bunch of violets (two dollars will buy
forty Backs of Durham, which, allow
ing forty cigarettes to tho bog, will
mako sixteen hundred clgarctteB
Think of tho nicotine which the at
tractive coed kept out of her friend's
HyBtem; cotiBlder tho sixteen hundred
blown to his constitution from which
sho saved him! Put, on the other
hand, perhaps the violets would hae
bought the young man n shirt, or a
half dozen pairs of socks; It might
havo paid for two pleasant evenings
at tho Orpheum, or several afternoons
at tho ball park Let us not forget
that two dollars Is a day's wage for
many men, on which they support
families The expenditure of two dol
lnrs for a bunch of fast fading flowers
Is an extravagance No amount of
apologies can make it anything else
I do not say that as an extravagance
it Is necessarily wrong, but that it
cannot be justified on any other
grounds. R L F
Tho following is a suggestion, to
gothor with a reason, suggested for
the athletic field-
Tho athletic field of the Universitv
of Minnesota bears the name of Presi

nothing at Nebraska to call to mem
ory tho name of President Emeritus
Andrews. Because of his long service
and great constructive work he merits
acknowledgement more than anyone
else. Why not Andrews Field?
