THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
Tho girl was animation itself. She
seemed to be extremely enthusiastic
about the subject. He tried to switch
the conversation to something more
personal, but failed. Ho wickod him
self mentally. Was it possible that
she hadnt noticed that ho had not
called lately? The idea worried him.
Ho got to thinking about It so hard
that ho answered her only In mono
syllables. Finally he broke right in while bIio
was talking "I haven't beeen here in
quite a while, have I?" he said, sud
denly. The girl looked puzzled. "Why, I
don't know. I hadn't thought of it,"
"No, I haven't been here in quite a
while," persisted the man with a sigh.
"Come to think about it, you haven't
It's been over a week, hasn't It?" said
the girl demurely.
The man frowned. "It's been just
four weeks and five days," he growled
The girl smiled cautiously behind
the curve of her hand. Then seriously,
"Really' as long as that?1" she safilT
"Isn't It funny how fast time goes?"
"Then you didn't miss me, said.
"Isnt it funny how fast time goes?"
"Then you didn't miss me," said the
far-sighted man, showing his 'hand.
"Why, I don't know that I could Bay
exactly that I've missed you," said the
girl. "I haven't thought anything much
about It to tell the truth. I've been
so busy, you see, helping father with
his letters and" The girl recited
glibly a long list of her recent activi
ties. The man in desperation gave up
all attempt of dissimulation.
"Well, I've been terribly lonesome,
to tell the truth," he burst forth. "I'm
never going to stay away so long

book had to pretend for a moment
that she was looking out of the win

THE SERVICE MAN.
I was a ranger on the Bow
In tho Service's early days,
With a sealln' stick and an army Colt,
And a nerve you couldn't feaze,
A veteran of tho cattle war
And the Leadville riot row,
With a keen contempt for tho east
erner, The pin-head, town-bred easterner
Who called a steer a "ceow."
I know the kinks of a ranger's job
From A to tho letter Z,
Fire patrol in the Snowy Range
To side camp cookery.
Slingin' my tarp when the sun went
In the Rockies' fencelesB campin'
None of the eastern college kids
Could show a thing to mo.
His tables of yield and growth per cent
Would make a cayuse smile.
To see him throwing the diamond
Would pay you to hike a mile.
He came with a thin-skinned silken
His grammar was certainly excellent;
But grammar don't count for a copper
When savvy and sand's at trial.
The pace wo led the assistant man
Wouldn't be god to tell.
But a8 the years are speedin' on
And the seasons come and go,
We're comin to see that the easterner,
GIRLS TO BE AWARDED "Ns"
Athletic Women Will Be Awarded for
Excellence In Gym Work Will
Arouse Interest In Physical
A co-educational Institution should
bo one that gives tho same privileges
and advantages of development to men
and women. If preference is given
one the other drops into a secondary
place and we find men going back to
Cornell on Harvard to be educated,
and girls sent to Vassar or Hrownell
to recelvo full opportunities necessary
to tho perfecting of a young woman
Tho physical development of neither
men or women of the University of
Nebraska has ever been neglected, I
but it has been thought by a few that
proper recognition of the merits and
skill of the women students has been
lacking. In order to show the skillful
some appreciation and to encourage
others to a less one-sided physical ef

award N's as a mark of proficiency.
Unlike the custom among the men, Ns
will not be given for work in one sport
or excellence in one event but will be
given to those showing efficiency in
different types of physical work, usual
ly set off in three classes, gymnastics,
team work, and track athletics. We
see in these three types of training, a
development of ability to do formal
hygienic exercise properly and there
by derive the proposed benefit, ability
to co-operate with team for a common
result, and the individual excellence
of outdoing all others with one's great
est effort of strength or endurance
The "N's" to be awarded the wo
men are planned after a consideration
of the above facts and a consideration
of the present equipment of the insti
tution for athletics. Beginning witn
records made this year, and if upper
classmen are otherwise eligible, In
cluding their back gymnastic grade,
N's will be awarded those who do all
three of the following; play on a class
team as a regular member of it, win
a first, second on third place in a field
meet, and get a grade of "E" in gym
nastics. The style of the official let
ter will be determined by a board who
are to award them this Bpring.
In one of our neighboring states
there is a rule to the effect that the
girl's official letter will not be given
any girl who has at any time worn a
college letter unofllcclally.
If space for tennis and equipment
for swimming became' permanent they
will be added to the list of sports from
which N's may be gleaned as trophies.
It will be very interesting to Bee
how many come up to these strict re
quirements the first year. Of course
the number will increase as the girls
realize the opportunities thus available.

The quick-brained, school-trained east
erner, Is a pretty good man to know.
We've camped, and smoked, and rode,
And run our lines together
When the misty mountains loomed up
In the Bow's October weather.
We fought the fires of nlneteen-ten,
(Fought, and ran, and fought again,
Sectional lines were forgotten then),
That mado us pards forever.
