In addressing the students the
chancellor snid that when tome of
the students enme to him and
liroiched the in. liter, lie was only
too glad to do all in his power to
start and aid the movement.
lie then introduced Senator Rnth-

from Colorado and New Hamp
shire. He also explninel how it
was possible for the relief eommis
sion to purchase coal for SH) cents
a ton, for which the individual
would have to pay $ The same
proportions in saving in many
other necessities eould'be takenad
vantaire of.
The chancellor then asked every

value which could be worn by

everything went, but they drew

The senator's remarks were very
well received. As he had just
come from that district, he had the
mciics of suffering fresh in his
mind, nnd his earnest pleading and
descriptions, caused many a hand
to go a little deeper in the pocket.
He aid in part: "I have been
called to tell you of the drouth dis
trict from which I have just conic.
It represents the saddest people in
the state. In lsyo we had a total
failure of crops. The two following
years were fairly good ones, but in
W.i.'J the failure was severely felt,
and as you know the last year was
a complete failure. Merchants
have been driven out of business
because the fanners could not pay
their accounts. The merchants
have trusted them relying upon the
prospect of good crop-., but now
all these accounts are worthless.
No one can get credit there. The
man who owns J(!o acres of land
unincumbered cannot borrow a dol
lar on it The people there have
no grain, hay, provisions, or cloth
ing. They do not know where the
next meal is coming from. Think
of the little children going bare
foot in this kind of weather.
They cannot go to school because
they Imv.o no clothes to wear.
From personal investigation I
know that whatever is intrusted to
Mr. Ludden, the secretary of the
state rebel committee will bo
properly distributed. There is
positively no reason for complaint.
Mr. Ludden was then intro

In the Library.
Miss Jones has found a treasure
which she considers more valuable
than Captain Ividd's, or any bodv
else's. For the last twenty years,
more or less, a book of poems,
written in 1MJ, has been in the
library. It was treasured only for
its antiquity until about a week
ago. In some way Miss Jones
happened to look at the i-(n side
ways and discovered the picture of
a landscape with boys nnd trees
nnd cows nnd slice) nnd houses
painted on the odirc of the leaves
in wntor colors. The picture enn
not be seen unless the pages arc
rolled in a certain way, and Miss
.Jones wouldn't sell it for a farm.
Five books, which are probably
of more practical value than any
live books in the library have been
added during the holidays. This
set is a history for ready 'reference
and topical reading. The books
contain concise but complete arti
cles on every subject which history
has to do with, from Algebra to
Omaha. The articles are taken
from the best authorities, are up
to date in every way. I n many cases
different authors are quoted. Al
together it is tho handiest and most
practical thing in tho library.
The annual meeting of the Inter
state Football Association wns held
at Omaha, Saturday, .January .Mh.
lliM-e were present Fred 1 James,
president, from Nebraska: Prof.
Greene from Kansas; Breninor
from Iowa, Manager Tcele of Ne
braska wns also present. For some
unaccountable reason Missouri was
not represented and no explana
tions were sent.
Very little business was done on
account of the absence of the dele
gate from Missouri. The pennant
was given to Nebraska. The pool
ing of the Thanksgiving games was
discussed long and earnestly. Ne
braska and Iowa have always ad
vocated pooling these games be
'uise the attendance at the Kansas
City game is much larger than that
at the 0m ilia game. Missouri and
Kansas hive contended against the
pooling as it lessened their profits
to divide with the others. Prof.
Greene said he was very sure lh-it
Missouri would never "consent to
pooling, and he knew Kansas did
not wish to submit. No conclusion
was reached.
The question as to whether Kan
sas should refund to Nebraska the
''ticket mono'," was then consid
ered. Nebraska domiaulcd it. Prof.
UYcHittT ttjftv-Ui - citsjiiattti ie-of
Kansas, said that, personally, he
believed Nebraska should have it,
but that his association did not
wish to pay it. Iowa was unwill
ing to decide the question alone.
For that reason the matter was laid
over until Missouri should be present.
Officers for the eiisuinir vciir
were elected as follows: President,
l-mrraboo, ol Iowa; A'ice-president,
Tefl'ts. of Nebraska. Kansas and
Missouri have not elected their
men for the other offices yet.
The meeting then adjourned to
meet Saturday, .January luth, at
the same place. It is to be hoped
that all the colleges will be repre
sented at this meeting. Very little
could be done before ou.acco'uiit of
the abenco of Missouri. On no
account should the, latum u. which
mis uone so much to encourage
their friends a de ightful s ,
ing party at the lie km -dno.di
night. The in n:i was urrfvi.
After one of the best tim ' uu igin
able nt the boieh, when it wns be
ginning to grow late, and the skat
ers beginning to grow weary, Miss
llarley escorted the party to her
home, where a most delicious
spread awaited them. The rest of
the evening was spent in dancing.
That Miss llarley is a capital host
ess is the opinion of all present.
Happy New Year was the greet
ing of scores of young men at the
home of Miss Cochran on .January
first when the young hostess kept
"open house,"' assisted by Misses
Clara Wat kins nnd Marion Smith.
The reception was informal, the
y'img ladies wearing street dresses,
but was none the less enjoyable on
that account. The rooms were
prettily decorated with roses
and potted plants. During the
afternoon refreshments of 'sand
wiches, coffee, and cake were
served. The young men who went
the rounds on New Years declare
the call at Miss Cochran's one of
the jolliest of the afternoon.
On New Years day Miss Sadie
Burnhain celebrated her return
from school at Andovor. Msis. bv
a very pleasant reception at her
uoine. rsiie was assisted by Misses
Georgie Camp, Agnes Sewell, and
Ella Kaymond. The house was
darkened and the rooms lilled with
soft light, showing the evening
dresses of the girls 'to the greatest
advantage. A profusion of flow
ers decorated the rooms, and
sinilax wreathed the, iln'ir-wiv
and festooned the chandeliers.
Miss Willoughby's orchestra fur
nished sweet music during the af
ternoon. In the dining room re
freshments wore served. After

1 1 Providos for a Levy of a Half
Mill For Two Years
Nj TolllnR Whether tho Measure
Will Pass or Not-Frlendiv Fool-
InR Toward tho Unl.
Of course nothing definite can bo
said concerning the prospect for the
university from the legislature now
insession. There is nothing but.
friendly spirit, in both houses of the
legislature and a disposition on the
part of all members to do whatever
they can the condition of tho state
careful ly considered.
Senator MeKeeby of "Webster has
taken the initiative by introducing
senate file No. 87, which provides
for a special levy of one-half mill
for a period of two years to be
used for building purposes. This
idea lias already met with favor,
and the request is so reasonable that
it is thought the bill will readily
pass. So far the state has given
only $2o,000 to the university for
building purposes. The remainder
has come from funds which should
be held sacred for instructional pur
poses and current expenses.
The levy amounts to 50 cents on
a valuation of 1,00, which will
amount to $SO,000 for each of the
two years. This amount will
complete the library building and
leave enough for the erection of a
recitation hall. If tho measure
passes, bids will bercccived and tho
contract let to have the librnrv
fully completed by September 1st.
The bill is in this form:

One of the least known nnd

Tho subject originated Avilh

There is great demand for' persons
