Invite Your Friends.
In addition to acting as hosts
to the special delegates from the
accredited high schools and
academies to the Quarter Cen
tennial, all students who have
friends attending other colleges
in Nebraska should invite some
of these to be present at this

To England Again.
Because of the hard times, the
University authorities had not
thought it advisable to make any
proposition whatever respecting
a trip abroad for the coming
summer. But several students
have already taken this matter
up and some others are making
inquiries ; so it seems best that
opportunity should be given for
expression in this matter.
If ten students, or less students
and their friends, enough to
make a party of ten, desire to
visit England and Scotland this
year with possibly a short trip
to the continent Professor Lees
is willing to undertake the work
of preparing and caring for the
party. The expenses would be
$250 ; or more, as the party
might decide. The t'me and
route will be determined by the
amount of money which the
party should think best to ex
pend. It will be understood,
however, that for the minimum,

Answering the Call.
Manv students are verv indif
ferent in the matter of answdV
ing calls from the executive
office. They seem to take for
granted that they know what the
purpose of the call is, and that
it does not .bear immediately
upon their well being; and
therefore answer at their conven
ience or not at all. '"
The simple fact is, no student
can tell what is the purpose of a
call issuing from the executive
office. It is not at all infrequent
that embarrassment, annoyance,
and even positive loss has corne
through the negligence of stu
dents. Etcry call from the
executive office should be ans
wered at once, to the neglect of
all other business. This is de
manded not onlv bv the Regents'
the students themselves, it is
time that this matter received at

the call comes direct from the
Chancellor or from the Regis
trar ; any call from the executive
office must meet with an imme
Students who are not in the
habit of getting their mail at the
University should not forget that
the only way of reaching them
is through the University mail
boxes. They should, therefore,
consult these frequently.
