However, Classes Will In All Probabil
ity Reimburse for Outlay Much
Credit Given Men for
Stand Taken.
In depieoation of tin recent attack
made upon student organizations for
failure to pay obligations, the chair
men of the .Junior and Senior Commit
tees oi tile Cotillion have undertaken
to pay tho deticit incurred by a Uni
veisny attalr with tlielr own Minus
The magnitude of the liability which
they assume may be inferred from the
fact that the amount still due for the
dance amounts to nearly $lf0 It is
pit Mimed that the respective clashes
of tlie two chairmen will indemnify
th m in -.onie manner, but until such
is done the obligation becomes a per
sonal one and will be paid by the two
inuhidual agents of the classes
1' is expected that certain action
will be taken b the committee on
student 01 ganiations to prevent
clabses heieafter lrom giving affairs
until all back debts have been paid,
but as yet nothing lias been definitely
decided upon.

Tells Small Group of Listeners Moral
Education Is Necessary.
Rishop .J H Tlhen talked to a small
audience composed mostly of men at
convocation yesterday He spoke on
the necessity of moral development as
well as intellectual development for a
successful education "The aim of the
University is higher than that of the
ordinary school, which instructs only
to keep up with the world, while the
University aims to guide the world"
Showing the practical connection of
the knowledge of men to business, he
said, "mere knowledge does not suffice
for an education; moral training is
necessary to guide the educated in
tellect to operate in the channels which
will be the most beneficial to society.
Educated persons are naturally lead
ers, so the responsibility restB on them
to lead up, not down."
There will be an important meet

March 25 Snowbound In tho western
sand li 1 I1m of Nebraska is the plight
of twelve embrgo foresters who came
here last Tuesday to do some practical
work in their chosen occupation Each
spring the government calls on the
University for foresters to help thorn
in the spring planting of pine seed
lings Those that answered the call

sll to know thai this forest nursery
was the oui come of several years of
work on the pail ol l)r Ressey to in
duce the government (bat pine trees
could be planted in the sand hill
region of Nebraska
At first the government laughed at
the. idea, but I)r Ressey was so per
sistent that they experimented and tho
result of the last nine years planting
has proved the wisdom of his idea.
Rut to the University men who
were willing to miss two or three
weeks of school to do some practical
work It looks as if their trip after all
will merely be an outing.
The first throe days the men wero
snow bound in the bunk houso and
tents, for it snowed practically all of
that time The snow of laBt week,
"the worst blizzard since '88" so the
natives say, has not disappeared, so
there is plenty of snow in this region
yet to melt before the men can start
to work
The only chance the men have had
to show their prowess is in poker,
cribbage, and the sorority parlor game
brldgewhist in those games they are
becoming experts.
Yesterday, the men went out for
the first time, the bunk house becom
ing monotonous. They climbed the
snow clad hills, shooting jackrabbits
and scaring up quail. A largo snow
drift one one side of a hill, with a
slope of three hundred feet, was found
and since then they have amused
themselves sliding down on coal
shovels, boards and haven't enjoyed
themselves in such a way since their
younger days.
If tho present weather prevails, tho
men will probably bo sent homo, and
their chance to add, by manual labor
to their exchequer, wil be lost.
It was only 16 degrees below zero
j Friday morning.
