Professor Hoffman Speaks at Red
Room Dinner, Comparing Budget
of Y. M. C. A. to "Overhead
Expense" of Factory.
"The University Y. M. C A. is the
natural socinl center for all Univer
sity men and might well be called
the young men's club of the Univer
sity. At this club every man, re
gardless of nationality, social posi
tion or creed, is welcome. Every
normal man needs an outlet to his
social nature and ought to come in
contact with his fellows in a social
way, Many a man has been a fail
ure because of his inability to mix
with his fellows The association
offers a Bplendid mixing place for
University men.
"The Y M. C. A cafeteria Is prov
ing to be a fine place where Uni
versity men can gather around a
common board, and is solving the
high cost of living for the Univer
sity man.
"The association can be made an
increasingly greater force in the
moral and social life of the Univer
sity and deserves the moral and
financial support of every man who
is truly interested in the highest
welfare of the University.
"Asst. Prof, of Zoology."
The first official day of the Univer
sity Y. M. (' A financial campaign
closed last night at the workers' din
ner in the red room of the city asso
ciation Team leaders turned In their
reports at this feed The contribu
tions of the first day easily equaled
the daily average which must be main
tained in order to raise the budget.
A number of the solicitors related
their experiences for the benefit of
each other A number had secured
contributions as high as $10, and some
of these amounts came from freshmen
Tho meeting closed with a talk by
Professor Hoffman, who answered an
objection met bo often during the day,
"I don't get any benefit from the Y.
M. C. A and so why should I help pay
its bills?" The professor Btated that
no student can escape the benefit from
the Y AI C A because Kb influence
surrounds and envelopes all University
life, forms ideals, fills a social need,
tones up the very air we breathe "The
expense of the association is analo
gous to 'overhead expense' in facto
ries; while, very essential it can not
be charged to any one account nor in
dividual, but is divided equally among
all. So this Y Al C A. budget is
overhead expense' in this institution
and must be borne by all, for it affects
all, directly or indirectly."
The Count and Countess Luetzow,
who last spring were gueBts of the
University, have presented the Bone
mlan department with a large flag It
is now in the local customs office and
will be delivered to the school some
time this week, and placed on exhibi
tion in room 106, AI A
This flag is the national emblem of
Bohemia and is really a work of art;
a silver lion rampant on a scarlet
field It Is the second gift which the
department has received from Count
Luetzow, the first being a complete
set of his own works, both In English
and Bohemian. Miss Hrbck displays
with pride a number of clippings from
foreign papers in which the Count
speaks very favorably of his visit to
Nebraska University.

Alinnesota looks with apprehension
upon the approaching football clash
between the Cornhuskers and the Go
phers This Information comes from
Searle F Holmes, who writes from the
home of the Gophers
"I am delighted to hear of the rose
colored atmosphere which hangB over
the football field at old Nebraska. It
is a marked contrast to the predoml
nance of gloom and mutterlngs which
characterizes AllnneBota's football ac
tivities. After the South Dakota game
the local papers even went so far as to
criticise the lack of spirit among the
students, and to characterize the root
ing as 'weak and lacking in spontan
aclty.' "NeedleBB to say, these develop
ments have filled me with fiendish glee
and a growing desire to see the Corn
huskers. Of course, the Gophers are
now receiving a thorough shakeup, and
the moBt strenuous kind of coaching
under Williams, Tom Shevlln and Ale
Govern, so they may develop wonder
fully. One thing, however, is certain
they are anticipating tho Nebraska
game with more genuine fear and trem
bling than has possessed their souls
for several years."
Holmes was editor of the Nebraskan
last Bemester and graduated from the
University with Phi Beta Kappa hon
Ho Is now located with an advertis
ing establishment In Minneapolis.

Says Army Officers In Favor of Peace,
But Nations Not Ready to Arbitrate.
Tho University Cadets were given a
welcome surprise last evening, when
Commandant Bowman announced that
for once tho weather condition would
not nermlt ontslek drill Ah n re '
suit the three battalions were seated
in the chapel and were given a thirty
minute lecture by the commandant
He answered tho main objections to
drill aB proposed by the Btudents whose
out conscience bothers them on peace
questions, and outlined briefly the
present status of the United States
in regard to war and arbitration. He
said In part: "There are some things
that a nation can not arbitrate and
at the same time keep Its Belf-respect
There are no men more -in favor of
universal peace than a group of pro
fessional army officers, and yet they
believe that the day has not arrived
for all nations to throw down their
arms " In closing he pointed out the
advantage of strict discipline and
urged the cadets to work earnestly.
