Q.. -Wh. then, did the most notice

of lowdyism which took no stock in
the dignilled purpose ol the banquet?
A- llecause the men mis-interpreted
the purpose. Hecause they allowed
their conceptions ol a "good time" to
run riot, and (allied to an extreme
the 111 timed suggestions of a few. And
because the element of leadership
which necessarily belongs with affairs
of this kind was lacking.
One cannot help looking back on
the Cornhusker banquet without a va
riety of emotions. It was undeniably
a success from the standpoint of at

Nebraska standing. Football victories,
debate results, student dramatics and
the control of organizations have their
influence. Hut the influence exerted
by this gathering of men, when marred
by such an evidence of common-ism
(not democracy), can put to naught

this real spirit. Mut unfortunately It
was a composite of good and bad
which was evolved. The real spirit
