Continued reports have come to the "Nebraskan-, of dishonesty
among students. To be frank, there are men and women on the
campus with not enough pride in living their lives straight to keep
from taking other students property.
It has ceased to be "merely an accident" and has passed beyond
the joking stage. This state of affairs is vital to the morale of the
University. It is a shame that the suspicion has to be cast on every
student of the University simply because a few are willing to indulge
in dishonest and corrupt practices.
When a Nebraska student has lost his personal honor to such an
extent there is little to be said to him unless it is to his face after
he has been convicted. The unusual feature about the stealing is
that the thieves are not In need. In fact, usually, they are students
who have not the slightest need of stealing a single article.
Our verdict to such students is to beware of detection, or your
stay at Nebraska University will be of short duration. The time to
"set down" on such actions is RIGHT NOW, and examples should be
made of anyone found guilty.
DON'T TRY TO FOOL THE PUBLIC.
Some members of this University, mostly Freshmen, have not yet
come to realize that they are no longer high school athletic heroes,
but merely common units of a larger and better educational institu
tion. These debonaire individuals daily attend their classes, clad in
the sky blue pink trophies won with mighty endeavor from the foot
ball field of Pumpkinville-Center where they were chosen, from the
entire student body of fifty members, to represent their school.
Wearing these sweaters adorned with a huge letter shows poor spirit
toward the University. It's time to rip them off and quit advertising
your prowess of high school days for, if you are a good man, Coach
Schulte will find it out soon enough and, if you're not, don't try to
fool the public.
He vat a college student. He had his good points, but "he never
had time." '
A place on a Y. M. C. A. committee was offered him. About a
half hour's work for each of a half dozen socials during the year was
all that was required. "I am carrying an unusual heavy study sched
ule this year," he said.
"I haven't got time."
His fellow literary society members expressed their opinion that
he could make good at debating and hoped that he would increase
his society's chances of winning by entering the tryouis. "Can t see
my way clear," he replied. "It would take an hour a day for several
I haven't got time."
He had played football in his high school days and had been
accounted worthy by the country newspaper writer to be listed among
those who "played good ball." The coach eyed his athletic build and
upon urging that he appear for practice was answered, "I don't be
lieve I have any chance of making the team, there are too many ot
the old men back and besides,
I haven't got time."
It happened to be a college where chapel was not noted for large
student attendance. The suggestion was made to him that one ot
the ways in which he could get most out of his college career was to
make some effort to be regular at chapel. Without much hesitation
and with no thought he declared, that, "somehow I always have a
lesson which other school duties prevent me from getting before the
chapel hour and the recitation comes right after, so
I haven't got time."
-Come out to the game and yell for the team," the local fans
asked him. The rooters were not doing their best for they h id not
recovered from the sting of the last defeat. The next game was a
crucial one. With. the proper support of the student body, victory
was not only possible, but very probable. All this was made clear to
him "The team is playing too ragged to deserve support," he ex
cused himself with. "The little yelling I could do won't count, and
anyhow, I am too busy,
I haven't got time."
It is not recorded how he got through after life, though the lack
of such record does not seem strange. Perhaps he did not have
time to live. Most certainly it did not take much time for him to die.
Saint Teter accosted him at the celectial gate. "You were so busy
on earth " said the guardian saint, "you won't be at home here with
out something to do; come right in, we will find you a Job at once."
Promptly and without thinking force of habit got the best of him
bnt Peter saw what reply was coming, and as the heavenly gate
closed between them Uf-re t ame floating in through the lattice work
of gold, the old familiar strain so often beard at college,
1 haven't got time."

Dr. Condra Takes
While Nebraska Cornhuskers battled
for supremacy with Notre Dame on
the Athletic Field Saturday, Dr.
George E. Condra, with his pilot, K.
V. Gardner, just returning from a.
1200-mile flight over the length and
breadth of Nebraska, zoomed out of
the clouds, darted low over the cheer
ing thousands, circled the field a few
times, and snapped some pictures of
the closing moments of the game.
Dr. Condra, head of the Geoghaphy
and Conservation Department at the
University, left on this (lying venture
October 12. The trip has attracted
wide attention because of i s extreme
Purpose of Expedition.
The purpose of the expedition was
to secure motion and still pictures
of the topography of the country, the
soil regions, and the cities and vil
lages over which the route passed.
This tour through the air is part of a
plan to study Nebraska's resources
and institutions by means of photo
graphs and motion pictures.
"The first stop was made at Nor
folk. The. plane then flew to O'Neill
These towns were visited the first
day. The second day of the- trip took
the party to Valentine and Chadron.
No Tying was clone on the third day,
as Dr. Condra took a jaunt by rail to
the Black Hills country. The Pine
Ridge section was visited the fourth
day. Nebraska's table-lanes in the
vicinity of Alliance were studied from
the air. From Alliance they flew to
North Tlatte where they spent the
night. Saturday at 10:45 they started
on the return trip, which took them
to Lexington and Kearney. Actual
flying time of the journey was thir

Once a Lama and Swami
Saw a Chamois do the shimmie;
'Twas yama-yama Chamois
And she shook a wicked shimmie.
"Oh. Lor' lumme," said Swami

Shouted: "Shimmie, Chamois,

dav. and again without a stop, .as a
civil service man opened all the
aerial mail routes east of Chicago.
During the war he was an aviation
camp instructor. He now lives in
Lincoln where he is connected with
the Nebraska Aircraft Corporation.
Dr. Condra said that from the air a
train moving at a great rate of speed
looks as though it were crawling
along the landscape. There is no
sense of speed, he says, and mile
roads pass almost in rapid succession
beneath the rlane. "Horses run from
the buzzing of the plane, cows have
little fear of the machine, and
chickens run to cover as from a
great hawk," explained the traveler.
Scarcity of cattle grazing on the
sandhills was a surprise to Dr.
Condra. Very little corn was being
picked throughout Nebraska. Fall
wheat fields in the southern part of
the state looked exceptionally green.
Weather conditions were quite stable,
although the plane had to tiy against
the wind at times. A strong up
current was encountered between the
two forks of the Tlatte River.
"I counted ninety lakes from one
side of the plane in the sandhill
region." remarked Dr. Condra in

Looking for something new and
different to carry your powder
puff and lip stick in? Then
snatch up one of the new can
teens I saw today before they're
all gone. There is a cute flat
box effect - of patent leather
that is $6.95, or if you prefer
something more Scotchy choose
a diminuitive red or navy
leather one for $4.50. Uiree
enough almost to be useful to
members of the Cheese Club,
are certain clever hexagonal
boxes, priced at o.uu
Would you pay $44.75 for a
good looking winter suit? Usual
ly, you'd pay much more but
not if you choose from a cer
tain lot which we have spe
cially- nriced for the rest of this
week only. Of course they're
not the sort that will cause any
stiff necks among the men, but
if you're looking for a smartly
and conservatively styled sun
Tiirelv tailored from good ma
teriais, just come to the second
Femininized pajamas! can you
imagine anything more delight
ful? They start out with the
regular honest -to -goodness
checked stuff like the men's are
made of, but then they get
ambitious. The result is short
sleeves, a V-neck and attractive
trimming bands in white or a
contrasting color. White, pink,
and blue are the colors and
you can choose your favorite
one for $3.75.
What is your taste in a dark
wool frock? If it runs to navy
tricot ine, and doesn't involve
too much capital, you're in
luck! I saw two of the smart
est affairs yesterday. One has
an accordian pleated skirt, one
of those cute little fish fin
tunics and a bright red leather
belt. It was $30. Its next door
neighbor was all done up in red
and blue yarn couched on in
gold, and the effect was nothing
if not neat and tasty. It is
yours for $35. Lots of other
cute dresses are priced from
$16.50 to $37.50.
