for sorvico; It 1b hero to sorve you, to
Horvo the UnlverHlty. In shaping our
policy, thlB shall always bo pro
eminent. "What can wo do for tho
University?" Is tho watchword.
To bo of real Hervlco wo must bo
more than a recorder of events past.
Wo must become a factor In those yet
to come. To do this we must put bo
foro the University public thorough
UlscuBBlonB of all general subjects.
Tho Editor can present his views. But
this Is not enough Wo want to know
what you think. We want you to toll
us what you think In this way the
subject may bo treated from every
standpoint, giving studonts the whole
of tho dlBCU8Bion that they muy form
an intelligent conclusion.
The Editor invites signed criticisms
of any editorial mattor. If you don't
agree with the stand tho paper has
taken, lot's know why. Then .and not
until then, can we got to the bottom
of it. Tho paper must take a stand on
important questions, a stand which It
considers tho best for tho University.
But perhaps It has overlooked Impor
tant considerations. Perhaps you are
better able to know tho facts. All
signed articles shall at all times bo
printed in tho "FORUM," and if of
sufficient lniortanco, shall bo given
front-page prominence.
In a word, we wish to encourago
sano discussion on all questions of
University importance. We wish to
mould student sentiment by present
ing a topic from all angles, by showing
each other what wo think, what we
desire for the best of the University.

factj.hat a convict cannot enjoy civil
rights, of which nttonding tho Univer
sity Is one, unless ho Is pardoned of
tho crlmo for which ho was convicted.
Studonts of tho UniverBlty and some
officers of tho sUo house believe
thero is no difference in tho civil
rights of a convict and of a foreigner,
as far as attonding tho University Is
concernod. Foreigners enjoy all tho
rights of a citizen oxcept tho right of
voting. Convicts do not enjoy any
civil rights. Our profeBBors were not
classed with tho German convicts, for
instance, when they worked for higher
dogreos In German universities Thero
aro Boveral convicts taking correspond
ence work, but are in no way classed
as students. Their names do not ap
pear on any official record. They pay
no fees. They receive no credits for
tholr work. They have no more
claim on tho University than they have
on tho congregation of the minister
who preaches to thorn each Sunday.
If at any time Murphy, or any other
convict, shows a full pardon and suf
ficient entrance credits it would not
bo necessary for the University au
thorltios to pasB on tho propriety of
admitting him Murphy will not bo
ublo to register before he Is given a
a full pardon. He will then be eligible
to any rights a citizen may enjoy

"I did not see you at the domoatli
science lecturo yesterday," said Mrr
"No," answered Mrs. Do Vote
"Thero is no use in my studying do

"Why not? They toll you Just whaj

I learned when I attondod the lectures,
Is rich In protoln, and tho body re
quires a certain amount of protein.
"I explained It all to my husband and
the boys and that settled the rice ques
tion forever. They said they didn't
care for drugs with tholr meals. They
said they ato for tho fun of tho thing;
not for their health.
"They made all sorts of fun of mo.
Mr. Do Vote would flay: 'Have some

spond, 'Sidetrack 'em, dad.'
"It was the Bamo with albuminous

said they didn't care for albumen. I

It would bo a deprivation to them not
to be ill. Suppose old Undo Wltter
kop should cure himself of all his all
monts by eating proper foods. What
a lot of good fun he would miss!
"Undo Wltterkop likes to take modl
cino. He can have more fun with BUch
symptoms bb he can extract than he
can with a Japanese puzzle or a cheml
can experiment. It 1b sclonce, philoso

hurries to the medicine chest with an
elastic step. He 1b anxious to see what

symptom. If the remedy wins he
Bmlles with delight. If the symptom
wins ho rubB his handB. It Is a splen
did game.
"It would bo a shame to feed Uncle
Wltterkop properly and thus deprive
him of all that sport.
"So I have decided to drop the lec
tures and let things take their course."
Japanese Superstition.

in Reply to Invitation to Sub
scribe for Daily Nebraskan.
"Have you subscribed for the Hag
Of course you have heard those
words within the past few days and
at tho same time you plunked down
your dollar to make tho Rag tho best
ever. But let mo tell you about a fow
of tho funny characters who are will
ing to show their school spirit in most
anything but honest coin; who will
get out and yell at a football game?
which ruins a perfectly good voice
and who will break a leg to attend a
tango party; but who can't conceive
of tho Rag us a University product or
as a true representative of bcIioo! sen
timent and opinions.
For a study In human nature let mo
recommend you to try to sell subscrip
tions. Take the vantage point of a
tablo placed where a constant stream
of students go by to register. Of
course they spot the graft long before
their portion of the lino nears the
table. They bristle up, gaze at you
out of tho corner of their eyes, pull
their hats down and get prepared for
tho springing step which takes them
out of your reach. With a smllo of
sympathy tho petitioners allow them
to escape to "mooch" thj Rag off
someone else.
Then there are those who spend a
sweet half hour in explaining how
their room-mate is a subscriber and
who pass by with a sigh of rollef at
their story well told. Then thoso who
look at you stonily and lie furiously,
knowing that you know the truth.
Then to relieve the heart-breaking
uncertainty, comes the loyal soul who
bustles up to fork over his dollar, and
smiles while he does it.
