A number of our professor do not look
with npi'oiul fuvor upon college uthlutleH,

nfTairH lu which the students participate,
Their oiithutiasiii for the success of the
Ainiuid in renmrkahle, pue of the (no
ulty in speaking to the business iiiun
agcr of that publication wild: "While I
am not much of a man for athletics, I
want to see the Annual made a 'howling'
huccchh. Put me down for one.1'
The work offered by tile Hnglish de
partment in public speaking cannot be
commended too highly. It to offering
the students something practical, some
thing that will be of great value to them
in the every day life of the world. Some
are inclined to look upon this work as a
"snap," but we know from our own ex
perience that it to not. There Is as much
hard conscientious work done in this
line as in many departments of the Uni
versity, and the benefits derived are in
comparably greater. No student who
ever hopes to be able to tell others what
he knows, or thinks he knows, should
fail to take a year's training in this class.
The Seniors have, we think, acted
wisely in drawing the line as sharply as
possible between the Academic and In
dustrial colleges and the College of Law.
They have decided to ignore the mem
bers of the I.aw School in the matter of
commencement invitations and class day
exercises. A college education is some
thing entirely different from a profes
sional education. We might as well offer
a six months' course in book keeping
and call that a college education. The
requirements for admission to the Law
School and to the Preparatory depart
ment are the same. The law student
need not be a college nran, in fact he
seldom is. They should have a separate
commencement. The Senior who has
spent one or two years in the I.aw School
should not have the honor of graduating
with the student who has earned his
sheep-skin by four or six years of hard
work. Kithcr the requirements for ad
mission to the Law School should be
raised or the faculty should provide for
separate days of graduation.
Thh NmiRASKAN is glad to note
the growing interest which is be
ing manifested by both students and
faculty in the system of joint debates.
This is as it should be, and Tint Nit
iikaskan hails it as the presage of such
a revival of the almost lost art of oratory
as will convince the most confirmed and
dyspeptic growler that there is plenty of
oratory and oratory in the true sense of
the word in the University, which has
only been awaiting a fitting opportunity
to manifest itself.
And for another and a weightier reas
on Tint NitnitASKAN is rejoiced at this
tendency. There is one thing, and that
a most essential element of University
greatness, in which we are, as yet, sadly
lacking and that is college spirit par
tisanship first, last and all the time for
the University of Nebraska. Anyone
who has been among eastern colleges
and Universities knows what college
spirit is in these institutions, knows
what it accomplishes for the school, how
it strengthens and solidifies it, how it
extends its fame and glory, how it unites
students into one harmonious body
working for one paramount object the
advancement of their own college.
Bveu an onlooker has felt his blood to
thrill while witnessing the intense and
unswerving college patriotism of eastern
students. As to our own University,
tuucli remains to be accomplished in this
direction. Tint Nbhuaskan had hoped
and believed that our Charter Day exer
cises would accomplish much and they
did. And yet we are confronted right
now with such a spectacle ac never could
occur where there was true college spir
it. Let us not disguise the facts. Let
ns lookrat them as-they are. We see the
best orator hat has represented this
University and this state for years enter
ing the inter-state contqst, not with an
enthusiastic "nud united.' student body
behind him, encouraging and spurring
him on to a victory which would be the
common glory of the untlre University,
but with dtocordaut and belligerent fac
tious at hto back, Hcralchlng and fight
ing like Kilkenny cats, with the "reprc
(tentative (?) college paper" striving in
every way in Hh power, by despicable
personal llings, by insult and abuse, to
discourage that champion whose inter
est, regardless of personal feelings,
should be the common intcrcHl of uh all.
This unfortunate stale of affairs to due to
a lack of college spirit. And Tint Nil-
iiuahkan believes that thto syHtem of
joint delmtcH to just what to needed to
mipply thto want. There can be more
genuine enthusiasm, more honest college
patriotism worked up over an inter
collegiate Joint debate than over a half
dozen oratorical contests, and for thto
reason we welcome the joint debate,
Tin; Nhiikaskan, therefore, calls on
all patriotic students to In lores! them
selves in the joint discussion which is
soon to be arranged Mr with Kansas,
and which will be held early in the next
school year. Let us sec that good men
are selected to represent us in that de
bale, and let us select those men, not
on account of their University allilia
tlons, but on account of their ability to
do our institution honor in that tourna
ment. Anil above all, let us do our
lighting before the selections arc made,
In the meantime, let us all see that the
letuin debate of the U, II. D. C. with
Cotner University, to be held here on
May 1 1 Hi, is made a rousing success.
Let us, as students, evolve out of our
Inner consciousness enough enthusiasm
to show at that debate that we love the
grand old University of Nebraska, and
let us, each and every one, demonstrate
that love and give all possible encour
agement to our debaters. They will do
their part; let us do ours.
In the March number of the Nebraska
Wvxlejan there appears certain remarks
about the contest, which were evidently
penned by the defeated orator, Mr.
Shank. The following letter, however,
signed by two of Wesleyan's represen
tative men, shows the attitude of their
college towards the Stale orator:
Univkrsity Pi,ack, Nun., April .).
University of Nebraska,
We believe a word here will not be out
of place with a view towards vindicating
what may seem to be the sentiment of
the Wesleyau with reference to our
recent State contest.
In the March issue of our Nfbruxku
Wcslrian there appears some interest
ing remarks on "oratory," "Louisiana
state lottery " "the cost of judges," etc.
As representatives of the Wesleyau Uni
versity, we wish to disclaim these insin
uations as representing in any sense the
opinion or sentiment of the fair minded
student body of our institution. The
winning orator, Mr. McMullen, has fairly
earned his place, and we recognize him
as our representative and will support
him as such. Sincerely,
P. II. ESSltRT.
