The University gladly welcomes its "War ClAuR-ellor" back today.
Chancellor Samuel Avery has been absent from the University a year
doing important work for the Government in the chemical research
department of the national council of defense. The University feels
especially fortunate that it can welcome its Chancellor as well as its
boys who aie coming back.
When Chancellor Avery left Lincoln to enter the service he went
in the capacity of a "dollar a year man." He gave all of his time and
energy to the cause for which Nebraska gave so many of her men.
Later he was commissioned major and taken into the war department
officially. After his term of duty he has been honorably discharged
and he is back in his office today. We are as happy to have the Chan
cellor of our University back, as we were proud when he was gone.
IN REGARD TO UNIFORMS
The Students' Army Training Corps received order to disband
before the men who comprised that unit had received uniforms. The
S. A. T. C. of the University of Nebraska has been in operation since
October first. Recently two carloads- of uniforms arrived at the quar
termaster's department but were returned at once "because there was
not time to distribute them." The distribution of uniforms of neces
sity entails an enormous amount of work and no little expense. Fur
thermore the officers at the post are encumbered with the task of
According to an official statement the men who at any time of
the war have had the right to wear uniforms have the right to so on
wearing them for four months after the close of the war, or four
months after they receive their discharges. The government has
allowed the men in the University's Students' Army to wear their own
citizens' clothes pending the arrival of uniforms. Many of them have
disposed of most of their clothes and have kept only what they needed
until the equipment from the government should arrive. After two
months of hard wear they are left with nothing more than what they
had. The Commanding Officer announced that only issued equipment
was to be worn, but as no uniforms had been issued the men were per
mitted to, wear their own clothing for the interval. They acted in
accordance with this order. In the meantime there was delay. Tliere
was also ridicule which was hurled, not at the men in "cits," hut, nev
ertheless, ridicule which was borne by them. Those affected by the
order have been patient and have done very little complaining. When
Kansas came to Nebraska for the Kansas-Nebraska game the S. A. T.
C'a from there took back with them a very belittled opinion of the
Students' Army here. In a consequent isRte of the "Daily Kansas."
the official aper of Kansas University, our men were described as
very ludicrous to the observer. Various papers in the state remarked
about the dearth of uniforms and the substitutions made for them.
There were witticisms 10 the effect that if appearances alone were to
be considered the University's men looked more like a "gang of I. W.
W.'s than like a unit of the United Slates Army."
Nebraska's Student Army is one of the largest in the country.
Uniforms have come here later than to any of the neighboring units.
It is the general opinion of the men, and of the University public that
the members of ihe S. A. T. C le issued the uniforms to wear for
the four months that is allowed bv the order.

May Continue Insurance

The following telegram regarding j
I the contiuation of government insur

Commanding Officer, S. A. T. (,

The commanding general directs that
you institute immediately an active
campaign to explain to all officers and

l"rn! insurance into standard forms of
government insurance including ordi
rary life, twenty payment life, endow
ment maturing at age sixty-two anri
other usual forms. A soldier may con
tinue government insurance after hi
is discharged. It is highly desirable
that men now in the service keep up
their insurance and continue to keep
it up after they return to civil life.
If a soldier permits insurance to
laps,, he will loe valuable right to
convert same into standard forms of
government insurance. This should
be impressed on all officers and men
by their ommandiag officers in per
