page four of this same lssuo of March
31st appeared a notice that created
no little lntorest among the members
of tho student body. Manager Swift
of tho Cornhusker was to glvo away
one do luxe book to one out of every
hundred persons who placed their or
ders beforo 8 a. m., Wednesday, April
1st. Tho book was to havo the lucky
person's namo on It In gold. Tho win
ners were to bo determined by a sys
tem of numbering and drawing. Fur
ther, out of every hundred copies sold
after 8 o'clock one person was to be
given ti tie lu.vo book ' in place or a
standard which thoy might order. Tho
names of tho winners in tho drawing
wero to be announced in tho "Rag"
and on the Cornhuskor bulletin board
In front of tho ofllce. It may also be
noted that those commissioned to take
orders used tho drawing thus provided
for as an Inducement In urging stu
dents to subscribe.
In tho Nebrnskan of April 3rd, Man
ager Swift was quoted aB saying that
the salo of Cornhuskers was "the host
over." Evidently ho was even then
being asked to namo tho winners, for
the same article goes on to say: "The

Wo firmly believe with Thomas Jcf
forson that all tho people aro wiser
than any Individual or group.
The Innocents, wo aro reliably told,
choose, on the other hand, tho men
that they believe will further their
own specific ends, not those that will
have power, or thoso who havo earned
for themsolves popular recognition in
thp University.. Neither Is any sort
of representation aimed at, nor is
recognition for past achievements
taken as proper criterion for choice.
Now wo ask, just what aro theso ends?
They aro doubtless what thoso thir

versity. Again refer to Mr. Jefferson.

The last of that week and the first

from Manager Swift. Ills silence has
been broken but once. On April 9th
