Tint NitiiUASKAN would not presume
to advise the lmrny-lianded sous of toil
of Lincoln, Imt when tliey, In conven

for oii'ployinK ! dents who work for
their hoiuil, we would rise to remark that
those students wlm work eiht hour,
a day over their lessons and eight homs

truly laboring men as are the aforemen

A good deal of history has been made
in this nation during the past few weeks,
and If wo but knew it we are living in
stirring time . Pioui n hundred cities
and towns "armies of the commonweal,'
numbering anywhere from ux to 2,o.iO
men each, are marching to Washington.
Coxey's army, at first a est, has giown
to assume an aspect no longer mirthful,
but rather grave an serious. What this
movement means and in what it will end
time aloi e can tell. And while these
armies of the unemployed are marching,
150,000 coal miners, whose earning ag
gregate over 550,000,000 annually, have
quit work, and from present aspects thi
strike, involving the greatest number of
men of any in the history of the United
States, will be of long duration and per
haps entail unparalleled suffi ring before
it is finally settled. Ami so we say,
these are stirring times. If. you, oh.
pale young man with thoi ghtful bro
have some ideas of worth and originality
upon these topics, write them up and
boil them down and send them to Tint
The Sunday edition of the morning
paper of this city Is one that is uuexcel
led for general literary merit by any
similiar publication this side of the
Mississippi, and Tint N mm ask an is
tempted to ask, how many of our stud
ents have thought of the reason why? It
takes 01 ly a little notice to discover the
cause of thnt merit to be the students of
the University of Nebraska themselves.
There is scarcely a page of the lit rary
supplement of every Sunday's Jmirnal
that does not contain articles of worth
and originality, articles displaying
thought and culture, to which are ap
pended the names of our students, or
which, being unsigned, yet betray the
ear marks of University work. Watch
and see. The Nhhraskan takes a pride
111 this evidence of the tendency of our
University men and women to push to
the front in literary work, and is glad to
mention it as testifying both to the ef
ficiency of the work done in those de
partmenU to which this advancement is
mainly due, and to the fact that we have
ta ent and brains which are bou d to
manifest themselves, among our student
The University of Nebraska is the
center of the thought and culture of the
state, and the people of Nebraska are
beginning to recognize this fact The
best young men and young women iu
Nebraska, young people with brains and
ambition are seeking every year in great
er uunilers those advantages of learning
ami culture and association which our
University ik so abundantly fitted 1o
give. This it us it should be and we
hope that our students will mention such
facts as thefcc to ever' one they see or
write to, and ask them to tell ever, one
else. That is the on'y way to build up
We understand that at a recent meet
ing of the faculty the question of recom
mending the reduction of the years of
required drill from three to two was
voted down by about twenty to five. It
is said that it was urged at that meeting
that the members of the batallion them
selves were not objecting to three years
of drill, and that so long as they were
satisfied the proposed change was use
less. Tint Nkiikaskan is satisfied that the
faculty is very much mistaken if they
believe that the members and prospec
tive members of the batallipu do not
heartily favor the reduction of the years
of drill. Aside from those few whose
eyes are dazzled by the brightness of
shoulder straps either present or coming,
the great majority of the students of
Whom three years drill Is required, are
and have been for many years, very
much dissatisfied with so long a period
of required drill. It is a suggestive fact
that just as soon as it was learned that
the opinion had been expressed In the
faculty meeting that the students them
selves dltl tiol ask for the change, that a
petition was at once started praying for
this reduction of the years of dril, and
we are told that four out of five of the
uontbers ol the biitalllon who are askeil
to sign this petition can hardly write
their mimes big enough and often enough
to satisfy their enthusiasm.
The fact is that thr e years of compul
sory drill ts very distasteful to the great
majority of the young men of the Uni
versity, and the only itnson for which
they have submitttd qutilly to this re
quirement is one with which the faculty
should be familiar, the constant eud"uvor
of our students in con form wilhc.u grum
bling or signs of dissatisfaction to the
requirements of the thriculum. And
so, while theie has been for a long time
widespread satisfaction among students
because of what seemed to them an nil
leasoni'ble amount of tcquited drill,
they "nave dieuied it fitting, in view of
the benefits which the University is con
ferring on them, to keep this dissatisfac
tion to themselves.
Hut now, when the statement has been
made that there is 110 general objection
to three years of drill, the membeis of
the batidliou, in our opinion, will be
perfectly justified iu letting the faculty
and regency know exactly where they
stand. Anil if the students should ex
piess themselves with any degree uuiui
imity in favor of this proposed change,
the faculty and hoard of regents will cer
tainly take their wishes into considera
tion. We believe that if the students
themselves once take their stand in re
questing but two ears of required drill,
Unit but little reason could longer be
urged iu favor of the retention of the
Two years of drill should certainly be
enough to fit students for that visionary
conllict. And if twoyeais are not enough
to satisfy individual students, they could
elect as many years more as would satisfy
their thirst for military glory, without
compelling their fellow students, who
have neither the time nor tne inclination
to keep on "hepping" with them
