Now that the mid-semesters are here, what are you going to do
with them? They mark the half way place in our journey into the
second semester, and leave but little more than two months until the
clse ot the year. Now is the time to "hit 'em hard," and dispel all
doubt as to the probability of losing any hours later on. An extra
watt or so of electricity consumed today is not wasted. In two weeks
we will board the cars for home, and will spend a few days talking
things over with father and mother. Think of the home-cooked
meals, and of lieing in bed until you are good and ready to get up.
No eight o'clocks to worry you, and no conferences with the Dean.
It's a good old world after all, so buckle down and "hit 'em hard."
OUR FRESHMEN KNOW NAUGHT OF CAMPUS ETIQUETTE
Our freshmen do Jot appreciate the freedom they are permitted
on the campus of the University of Nebraska. They know naught of
strict rules as to what they shall wear; how they shall act; what
they shall not do; etc. Life for the freshman at Nebraska is a merry
one. They associate on equal standing with upperclassmen; date
when they please; wear corduroy pants and smoke cigarettes if they
choose. They attend junior and senior parties, and think nothing of
asking for dates with senior women. Such is the untamed attitude
of the first year prodigals at Nebraska.
Freshmen at other universities are not so fortunate. They dare
not smoke on the campus, wear sport coats or white flannels. They
occupy certain seats as chapel, and must get off the walk if an upper
classman approaches. Their life is not altogether one of roses, and
is sometimes associated with thorns. Princeton freshmen are sub
jected to the folUwing restrictions according to the Boston Tran
script: Freshmen shall pot wear college colors in any form.
Only blac.k shoes, socks and ties may be worn; no fancy vests of
any description are to be worn.
After the 5 odock bell has rung in the evening freshmen are
expected to remain in their rooms.
The regulation headdress for freshmen ih a black skull cap.
Freshmen shall not walk on Prospect street.
Freshmen shall not loiter on Nassau street.
Freshmen shall Lot walk on the grass.
Freshmen shall not smoke on the streets or campus.
Freshmen shall not enter Renwick's.
Freshmen are forbidden to play football or basketball on any part
of the campus except Brokaw and Goldie fields.
Freshmen shall not walk on the walk in front of Nassau Hall or
on McCosh walk.
As seniority of class determines the possession of the sidewalk,
freshmen are expected to get off the walk for members of all other
Unless accompanied by visitors, freshmen shall not eat in tie
main dining room of the Nasau Inn, nor occupy seats in the grand
stand at University Field, nor ride in automobiles.
Freshmen are always expected to carry wood for the bonfire
celebration of important athletic victories.
The riding of bicycles by freshmen is forbidden.
Freshmen may not wear white flannels, knickerbockers, macal
naws, or short coats of any description.
Freshmen shall not appear on the campus without a coat.
Freshmen shall not sit around the Sun DiaL
Freshmen shall always occupy the gallery seata in Alexander
Freshmen shall at all times observe modesty in dress.
.One of the pests of the University community is the same we
meet wherever we roam, the braggart. We cannot help but know him,
for he is not the kind to sit back and let others do the talking, or a
fair share of it, conscious that an overuse of "I" and "me" is not the
most entertaining sort cf conversation. If be doesn't happen to be
orating, he can generally be identified by his chest expansion.
It is always amusing to hear a veteran at the game of braying
tell about it, particularly if you happen to know him and "if mean
ing any incident in which he is the hero and consequently can make
a pretty clear distinction between gospel and local color as the story
ripens. Everything that ever goei wrong for him is a break of bad
luck; certainly it could never have happened if he was truly appre
ciated. Contrast with thii loose-tongued individual the retiring fellow
who really does things but never thinks they are worth mentioning.
The world knows about his deeds Just as qalckly as It does of the
affairs of specimen No. 1, but with this difference; he is appreciated
and his ability 1 respected. The braggart meets the fat of the
shepherd boy in the fable: he talks so much about what he doesnt
do that he is apt to get diminished credit for any noteworthy thing he
may happen to do. Ohio State Lantern.
