Thursday, April 30, 1914. THE STUDENT COUNCIL CONVEN TION. It seema qujlo evident that ,tho representatives of tho various classes choBen to framo a constitution lor a student council havo taken tho law Into their own hands and havo de elded that thoro Is no demand for a student council In Nebraska. ThlB Is tho wrong spirit on their part. It should bo of no matter to theso people whether or not their plan would be adopted. Thoy havo boon dolegated to do a definite work. Thoy should do that work regardless of all clrcum stances. But perhaps tho way In which things aro working thomaolvca out Is, after all, not far from a good solution of tho problom. If no ono cares enough about tho council to raise His voice in protost against such inde fonsiblo dolay and .inofflcloncy of thoflo In chargo of tho movement, thon cortainly wo aro not ready for solf govornmopt. If no ono cares enough about It to demand tho action which 1b so nocoBsary to tho movement, then If adopted wo could hopo for llttlo real Olf-govornment, W.o aro in favor of self-governmont of every Intelligent body. Wo bo Hovo that self-government would bo a good thing for Nobraska. But It Is so palpably ovldont that tho greater part of tho school either thinks tho Dthor way, or else dooB not think at nil, that wo hdvo- gravo fears whether or not self-govprnmont could bo sue coBBfu'ly attomptod hero. Wo bollovo tho only way to start a council at Nobraska would bo to band togethor soveral supporters of tho plan, havo them draft a proposed con stitution, havo them" glvo it tho neces sary publicity, and then submit it to tho students. It will be accepted as a matter of course. Then may It bo- mmi n leal Nebraska institution;! through use and through custom. Its possibilities can only bo realized through oxporlonco. Wo havo found out that tho ono way to "put ono over" bo It a candidate or a student coun cil Is to band together a group of men whoso IntoreBt is sufficient to guarantee their earnest work. Such a body is tho only ono that will succeed. fTho sense of duty is sadly lacking In tho average University student. Thoy havo not tho slightest idea of tho meaning of tho term. Soe how thoy accept their duty on ho conven tion. If, Instead of elected representa tives of classes, wo had a body of mon vitally interested in seeing a council "put across" at Nebraska, wo would havo action ana havo It at once. You can not oscapo It. Tho fact Is that personal interest will accomplish what It sots out to do; class repre sentatives seldom if ever do. What tbo school wanted was a draft of n constitution to voto upon. Mon who wantod to see a council bad enough to work hard for it would submit tho best possible constitution becauao they woro so anxious to havo it adopt ed. What do wo care who frames it? What wo havo wanted is action, tin dor tho present system wo havo not had It Wo aro forced to await the advent of tho other. ENGINEER INSPECTION (Continued from Pago Ono) Lincoln Traction Company's Plant 3:00 p. m. to 4:00 p. m. Tho trip through tho Havelock shops Is limited to twenty men, but tho other trips will bo opon to all mon going on tho inspection.
