r We tiro griovod to notice the lit

ity affairs by the groat mass of the

novor jro anywlioro. bomo give

i poor excuse. It costs but very lit,
I tlo to bo interested in athletics, so-
cietics, oratory, debating, and the
welfare of the university. Don't
bo a clam and shut yourself up in
your shell, but come out among us
and let us see who you are and
what kind of stuff you are made
of. It is a lamentable fact that
there are hundreds in the university
who do not belong to societies,
fraternities, or any of the active
animations of this institution.

Kllio interest is not what it should
"', Tho only way to get out a
wd at a class meeting or an
athletic election is to have a genuine
(k scrap" worked up a week before.
Is it tiny wondor then, that Ave
havo such littlo college spirit, and
that confined to a comparative few!
What are wo hero for? Some seem
to be horo for the express purpose
of doing nothing. Others, who
are hard workers but indifferent
and lack the true spirit, are here
to grind away at thoir book with
out noticing anything else, until
thoy got to bo petrified moss
backs. Study and reciting tire by no
means tho wholo of a college edu
cation. Tho rubbing up against
your fellow-student, learning their
ideas and views of life, meeting
them in open contest on the ath
letic field or in joint debate, associ
ating with them in society; these
are tho things that make tho man.
Give us ono who understands his
fellow-man, who lives in tho samo
world as ho does, and who makes
the world better and happior by
We are horo to get all tho good
and do all tho good wo can. If
we simply got our lessons, we get
but part of an education and lose
opportunities that will never pre
sent themselves again.
In viow of these facts lot every
loyal student of tho Uni. of Neb
raska got out and show his colors,
interest himself in something and
make this institution tho greatest
center of activity in tho west.
Noxt Tuesday Avill decide a great
many questions in Nebraska. The
present campaign has been ono of
tho most exciting in tho history of
this commonwealth. That tho ma
jority of students of the university
of Nebraska aro awako and Jiro
taking active interest in the cam
paign has beon shown on moro
lhan ono occasion.
There is no body of people Avhich
should bo more interested in poli
tics than those persons who study
politics and tho art of government,
who are well versed in tno history
of thoir country, and who have tho
best interests of thoir country at
heart. As students it is our duty
to do whatever wo can to make
good government and place cloan,
honest, upright men in powor to
administer that government. Our
votos will not count no moro than
tho Dagoes of tho street, but our
influence cannot bo measured.
Think what a powor tho graduates
of U. of N. would bo in this state
if till were working for a common
cause Avith Jill the vim and energy
of true college-bred men. Tho
times call for men of principle who
Avill stand by thoir principle, evon
though it cost them thoir office.
Domagouges havo controlled of
fices long onough. Wo want mon
at tho holm now.
It may seem presumptuous in us
to leoturo our follow students on
their duty as voters. But there
are students in the university, qual
ified to vote, avIio avouUI not take
the trouble of spending a 1'oav min
utes oA'ery year in casting their
b'allot for a righteous cttuse. They
say they care not Avhcthor republi
cans, democnits, or populists jtre
in poAver, one is as bad as Hie other.
Those men seem to care only for
their books and their meals. Thoy
forget that all public questions are
of vital importance to them indi
vidually. It ma Ices ti grcjtt differ
ence Avhether avo pay hetiA'y or light
taxes; Avhcthor Ave are cheated
out of large sums of money by cor
rupt "rings," and bad legislation,
or Avhether that money goes into
tho proper channels.
The interests of tho university
are at stjtke in every election to a
certain extent. The funds of the
institution have to bo appropriated
by the state legislature and it makes
a great difference Avhethor large
minded, liberal men arc in power,
or whether selfish men with few
ideas have control of the govern
ment. In viow of tho above considera
tions see to it that you get out and
cast your vote next Tuesday for
the men and for tho principles you
believe Avill best carry, out your
Atholetic sports Jiro bound to
come to tho front in the university
somo day. Wo have abundant ma
terial to dniAV from, but tho proper
spirit is not present. W hen a little
collego like Doane, with about one-
oighth tho number of students, do-
feats us in foot ball, or any other
jithelolie sport, there is something
Avrong somoAvhere. Our foot ball
team has ahvays boon handicapped,
partly from lack of funds, partly
from lack of support, Jtnd partly
from lack of coaching. This ycjir
a iioav hindenmco looms up and
may cripple tho team quite seri
ously. It is tho refusal of parents
to alloAV thoir sons to play such a
rough game. Jones, Fair, and
Shuo, three of our best mon, have
thus been laid upon tho sholf.
There is no doubt that foot ball is
ji rough game, but it has boon so
greatly oxagorated that many par
ents actually believe thoir boys in
imminent peril Avhilo playing.
Mean? should be employed to dis
posess theao people of this idea. It
has boon suggested that somo of tho
old alumni, who aro out of school,
Avho knoAV what thoy jiro talking
about, and who aro freer from pred
judices than tho undergraduate,
should write to these parents stat
ing the condition exactly and ask
ing that tho boys bo allowed to
Tho preliminary debates for se
lecting representatives to tho Kan-sas-Nobrjiska
dobato Avill bo hold
noxt week, beginning Tuesday
evening, Tho success of this von
turo Avill dopond largely on tho
interest taken in it, as shown by
tho attendance and by tho prepara
tion of tho participants. All Avho
aro desirous of making this debate
ji permanent iixturo to bo looked
forward to each year, should come
out to at least tAVo of those debates,
if not to Jill of thorn.
Tho members of tho Y. M. C. A.
hold an informal reception in tho
parlors of the iioav conservatory of
music, Hallowo'on. The halls woro
brilliantly lighted and tastofully
decorated with plants and univer
sity colors. The boys spent the
evening in gotting jicquainted with
ono another, playing games, and
singing college songs. Tnis is tho
first of a series of receptions to
bo given by tho association dur
ing tho year. Although "sidewalk
fever' ' and various parties at
tracted many of tho boys elsoAvhere,
a goodly number were in atlond-
A NEW IDEA.
A Proposed Bill to Educate
Students in Practical
A iioav department for tho uni
versity is promised by a bill Avhich
hits been drafted in the rough, and
which will be presented to the next
legislature, providing tor the crea
tion of a State Board of Charities
and Correction for Investigation
and Counsel. Tho new bill, which
originated with the Prison lieform
Association, is intimately connected
Avith the slate university, as it pro
vides that tho general secretttry
shall offer definite instruction at the
university to such students as sire
properly qualified to receive it.
Such instruction is to equal tAVo
hundred and lift' student contact
hours for each jictulemic year.
The boarol is to consist of four
commissioners, besides the Gov
ernor, and president of the board
of regents. The now department
to bo established is tho study of
sciology, The student is to bo di
ected to the study of practical re
form. Tho various state institu
tions and their government Avill be
studied and attention directed to
tho Avrongs that exist here. The
iioav bill also provides that the
officers of all state institutions shall
bo appointed by the Governor with
the recommendation of the new
board. It is from this last chiusc
that tho projectors expect strong
opposition, as this Avill interfero
greatly with tho usual practice of
politicians of putting any sort of
men into olfico Avho have a political
