We seek to know, and knowing seek; We seek, we know, and every sense Is trembling with the great intense, And vibrating to what we speak. We ask too much, we seek too oft; We know enough and should know more ; And yet we skim through Fancy's lore, And look to earth and not aloft. O Sea, whose ancient ripples lie On red-ribbed sands where seaweeds shone; O Moon, whose golden sickles gone, O voices all, like you I die. C. B. Many Comhuskers Are Sold, Although Shipment is Delayed In spite of the uncertainty of the time of arrival of the Cornhusker, some thousand of the books were de livered to expectant customers yes terday and the full number ordered are expected to be dispensed with to day. The copies were delivered dur ing the morning hours from tables set at the west of the Temple and during the afternoon hours from the inside of the Temple hall. Thought having notice of the arrival of the books only by word of mouth, the throngs of stu dents crowded around the point of dis tribution and kept. Business Manager Kavan in a state of busy turmoil dur ing the greater part of the day. Three hundred more copies of th,e Cornhusker were ordered this year than last, the -number this year being 1,700. Of this number the University itself takes three hundred for distribu tion among the high schools of the state. With the. exception of a tiun- I dred extras, the remaindeVn.of the num- ber are those ordered In accordance with previous, deposits. Benefit Musicale by Miss Chapman Should IBe Well Attended The Temple theatre offers an attrac tion of unusual worth this evening. The Junior-Senior benefit mUBlcale given by MIsb Florence Chapman Is on the card. Miss Chapman is to pre sent a program varied and of more real worth than anything that the uni versity of Lincoln public has had the opportunity of enjoying In many months. The program Is certain to be most enjoyable and should attract lot itself, and in addition to that it de mands the' attention and support of all the student body in that it- is an unsel fish and unrequleted effort to help the two upper classes out of real financial difficulties. Miss Chapman's ofller is an unusual one and it should be re sponded to with eagerness and should be given very hearty support. The expenses 'for the affair are very light and a large audience will net big money for the two indebted classes. The evening may be warm, but the audience enjoyed the Dramatic club play Thursday with comfort, and there is little chance that it will be much warmer". Remember that the admis sion will be 25 cents and that there are no reserved seats. Professor Grumann Will Lecture on Senior Class Play Not a small feature of the Senior Play which is to be given at the Oliyer next Thursday night, is the prepara tions that are b?ing made for It on the campus. The plajing of "PIUarB of Society" has aroused quite a bit of in etrest in the works of the famous Norwegian, Honrlk Ibsen, and every effort is being made to make the per formance mean as much as possible to the University public. Next Tuesday's convocation will be devoted exclusively to the Senior play. Professor Grumann, director of the School of Fine Arts, will deliver a lecture on the early development of the author, with speclal(?&rence to his writing of "Pillars ofJ'Ssociety' Professor Grumann is a student of the modern drama, and ho is especially familiar with the life and -work of Ibsen who ranks as 'the-pioneer in the "new movement." In addition to thfs Professor Grumann Is "putting his classes through .jthe play, and is mak ing a translation which he expects to publish at some future date. The famous "rabble scene" in. the last act, where the whole populace turns out to do homage teethe "pillar of society," making one of the most effective scenes in the play;, will, be presented by two of MjsV. Howell's classes.'Un elocution, The students have teen working on this attire 'at special rehearsals anjl' it has been made a part,of the semesters twork MEMORIAL DAY OBSERVED CAMPU8 PRE8ENT8 BARE APPEAR. ANCE ON NATIONAL HOLIDAY CEREMONIE8 ATTENDED. SEMESTER ALMOST OVER Everybody Preparing to Leave Univer sity for 8ummer Work or Pleas ure Examinations Are Impending. Yesterday the campus was bare. Tho University presented fewer signs of life betwoen the hot hours of 2 and G p. m. than at any time during tho whole year. A few students at tended the various formal celebrations of Memorial day. Others took advan tage of the extra day with tho folks in near-by towns. Some wore playing gaily at the Beach. While many others especially law students, hunted tho coolest room they could find in the house, lighted their longest stemmed pipe, pulled down their cram sheet and their "Hornbook," and began tho long woary cram for next week's ordeal of exammlnations. The univorsity, observed all who saw it yesterday, does not die all at once. Long before the twelfth of May It 'be gins to fade away. Spring Bluffing, preponderance of empty seats, wo were reminded, began this season with the first hot day. Maytlme was rich in holidays, When the cream of insti tution activities would as likely be found under the trees of some park as beneath the campus shades. Finally there comes that awful silence as If beforo a storm. Short classes are held during the cool hours of the day for review, and the University awaits with batod breath tho outcome of tho final rush for enough credits to go out honorably. Despite the how-d'ye-do made about the abolition of .examinations a few years ago, the tests will proceed in all departments this year with all their pristine vigor. The professional col leges, belonging to' various college as sociations, are required to tax the. in tellects of their students as heavily as ever. In the arts and science college, the discretion -left with .the prdfessors will in most Instances bo exercised in behalf? of those "short quizzes" about what they'Jl - be nobody knows any more than he, did about the long ones.
