BRADSTREET'S MAN TALKS
TO STUDENTS OF COMMERCE
Advises That Commercial Agency Is
of Recent Origin Methods In
Use by Bradstreet's.
J. E. Kizer, superintendent of the
local ofTlco of tho Bradstreet's credit
agency, delivered an interesting talk
before tho Business Organization class
yesterday. He stated that the com
mercial agency was of comparative
recent origin. Previous "to 1840 there
had been no systematic attempt to
organize a commercial agency. Only
haphazard methods were used and
but poor results obtained. In 1849,
however, J. M. Bradstreot Inaugurated
tho System which constitutes the
D.xsls of the lator system which has
developed Into tho Bradstreot agency.
Tho prime work of the agency ha
been to get the commercial ratings
all the manufacturing, jobbing, mor
cantllo ana Business' coucerii-"Iu the'
country. In this -work credit has been
qualified by character, capacity and
capital. Tho latter'in. .part forma1 tho
basis of credit. In this respect tho
commercial agency has a world-wide
Jnfluenco, inasmuch as it gives infor
mation about credit without wjilch
nittlo cummorce-could-be-tranBaoted, ,
Bradstreetls gets Its .JnfQrmatifin
usually by sending out traveling re
porters Into all the towns about twice
a year, who request statements from
each firm and colect all information
possible. From tills ,tho -agency de
termines the .rating of each firm.
Those results are published quarterly
in large volumes, which are soldTto
largo concerns. Tho subscription for
two books and 100 special reports Is
$123 per year.
In the March, 1914, volume there
from 90,084 places. As compared with
the first printed vojumo of Brad
street's, there has been a decided in
crease, for then (he 'book contained
but 17,100 names, from nine cities.

A DECIDED SUCCESS
University Chorus Under Mrs. Ray
mond Took an Active Part
Cornell Well Pleased.
The most successful music festival
ever given in the city of Lincoln came
to a close Monday with two superb
concerts by the Minneapolis Sym
phony Orchestra. The Oliver Theater
was crowded, to Its full capacity at
each performance by an audience
which was raised to tho higuest pucn
of enthusiasm during many of the
numbers. The programs were com
posed throughout of the best typo of
olassical music and It Is to the credit
of the audiences, which woro largely
made up of University students, that
every number received tho undivided
attention of oaclrporsuu prosenfc-The1
of times, but never before haB
such perfect sympathy been estab
lished with tho audience. At the con
clusion of tho afternoon program 'they
refused to leave the theater until Mr.
Oberhoffer had responded to two en
cores. Of the evening program the State
Journal says: "Tho evening concert
was of particular interest .because of
Lincoln's .share in the program. The
University Chorus, with orchestra and
soloists, presented"that part of Franco
Leonl's "Gate of Life." entitled "Dedi
cation of the Temple of the Sun," un

ternal organizations to sit up ahd'takei
notice and there is a generalderaandT
for higher scholastic standards.
Several -wayward freshmen'-havo

have been gl,ven' the ordeal by their

and It is to bo hoped that tho results
of this semester will not cause the
withdrawal of any more men.

The man who has found It difficult
In college to put tho serious side fore

that he Is handicapped in starting out

and must form the serious attitude
