Vou want to jjot. a holiday Nu
HiiASKAN' before Ihoy arc all gone.
An able contemporary informs
us that ''Professor Wilson is gol
tin out an addition to Virgil." It
is the earnest wish of the second
preps that he will not make the
thirteenth and following books
harder than the tirst twelve.
AVk have on hand several copies
of the holiday number which we
are desirous of getting rid of as soon
as possible. There will be no All
ium' publis'?d this year, but while
we do not consider this issue in any
w.iy a rival to the Sombrero, still it
remains the only publication worthy
to be retained as a memento of
your college life for the year '5)4-5.
When those on hand are gone,
they cannot be reproduced and it
behooves every one to secure a copy
as soon as possible.
Tins Nkhkaskan asks for more
liberal contributions from the stu
dent body. Tin-: Neukaskan is
hero for 3'our benefit, and we want
you to use its columns and space
to the best advantage. Write us
something of some sort or other.
Lot it be some local news item or
literary production. If you happen
to crack a legitimate "joke"1 jot it
down and hand it in. We will not
take oath that everthing is pub
lished which we receive, but any
thing that is worthy will receive
duo attention. Better try a few
times and seo what you can do.
The dale of our next field day
is to be sot at the next meeting of
the Athletic Association. Jt seems
to be the general desire of those
who intend to enter the contests
that a later date be decided upon
than that of last year. The objec
tion is that sufficient time wa not
given for training, as. the weather
would not permit, until late in the
season. The hist Saturday before
Decoration da' litis been favorably
spoken of as the proper time to
hold the field day contests. This
will undoubtedly tend to make the
exhibition of much more interest,
and the events a little more spirited.
The imputation of carelessness
or indifference on the part of the
University authorities in the mat
tor of meddling with students' prop
erty, which has been made by cer
tain parties not responsible for
their actions, is utterly and totally
without foundation, as many stu
dents know, to their cost. The au
thorities have been constantly act
ive and very active along this
line, but they complain that the
greatest obstaclewith which the'
have to contend is the unwil
lingness of the students to co
operate with them in detect
ing the guilty parties, and an un
willingness on the part of many to
combine in a very energetic protest
against any dulinilo notion being
taken when a friend or olnssumlo
happens to bo deteoted.
If the students of the University
will with one consent and heart
ily unite in securing information,
and in other ways assist the author
ities; if thoy themselves will insist
that the student found meddling
with the property of another shall
bo dismissed, no matter what his
excuse may be, the whole trouble
will cease in a single week.
This is the surest and quickest
way to remedy the evil. We have
no use whatever for sneaks at this
uniVersity. If tho trouble lies
with the students we cannot blame
the authorities -for L The Ne
ltitASKAN will not hesitate iu giving
the full name of 11113' one caught in
this disreputable business. If they
have a regard for public opinion
let them beware!
The meeting of the athletic asso
ciation which is called for next
week, should be attended by every
loyal student of tho university.
Some very important measures are
to bo considered which should re
quire the careful attention of every
one. The main object of tho meet
ing will be to provide some means
to prevent ''college politics" from
entering into the loeal elections.
Every manly student knows that
some such idea should bo adopted.
In its issue of Decohiber 7th, The
Nkukaskan published as "sugges
tions" a number of rules which it
is thought would bring about tho
required result. Wo think the
adoption of these would entirely
reined the present evils.
The one measure which has been
proposed, is not adequate to bring
about the required result.
It would indeed be a great im
provement, but while wo are about
the matter, it may just as well be
done right, A board composed of
nine members will lie an unwieldly
body. They will never be able to
get together, and it is hardly pro
bable that three alumni can be found
who will take enough interest in
athletics to be present at a meeting
of the board.
While it is tho general opinion
that the measure is a good one still
that of adopting those rules as pub
lished is considered better. These
"suggestions"' wore culled from the
constitutions of the various athletic
clubs of such institutions as Yale,
Harvard, University of Michigan
and others. The' represent the
meat of the rules in vogue at those
places. Mairy experiments have
been tried by all colleges through
out the United States, and the re
sult was the adoption of some such
a code of rules. There ma' be some
objectionable clauses in these, which
can be stricken out. There may
be alterations and additions that
can be made, but as a whole, those
rules are aptly iitted to the condi
tion of athletics at this university.
Indeed they wore prepared only
after much careful thought and
are considered peculiarly fitted for
our state of affairs.
The magnificent response of the
students and faculty of the univer
sity to the appeal of tho western
sufferers for aid is certainly very
gratifying. A large furniture van
was required to haul away the
clothing contributed. In addition
to this, $D5, has boon collected and
placed at the disposal of the state
This money will be used to pur
chase fuel, feed, and whatever is
needed most to provide for the
needs of the sufferers. By placing
it in the hands of the state relief
committee not only will free trans
portation bo obtained and a great
discount in buying, but tho rolio
will bo sent to those points where
if is most needed and will bo dis
tributed to those persons to whom
it should go.
The name of tho senders will
accompany each carload, so tho
people of western Nebraska will
know that the students of their
stato university sympathize with
them and gladly sn.l thorn what
aid thoy are able.
Tho readiness with which tho stu
dents responded when the papers
wore passed, showed that thoy were
interested and gave, not because
they felt it an obligation and duty,
but because thoy felt it a privilege
to lend a helping hand to someone
weaker and poorer than themselves.
Almost every one gave some
thing. One very noticeable fact
was that the contributions of tho
girls was much larger than those
of the boys. There must have been
some reason for this. Is it a faet
that the girls are more sympathteic,
warmer hearted, anil generous?
Perhaps thoirallowances are larger
and their expenditures smaller.
This might bean interesting ques
tion for Dr. Wolfe's class in psychology.
Tho Junior Prom.
Tho class of 'IHJ, in face of tho
fact that the Annual was no go this
year, are making very extensive
preparations for tlio coming Prom
enade, and promise that this
event will be iho greatest of the
university. The pious senior class
of 'SJ5 originated ami founded tho
"Prom" and 'DO is going to do tho
right thing this year. The com
mittee on the hop comprised tho
following: McLueas, Seugwick and
.Miss Whiting. After the great
efforts of Air. AlcLucas and a care
ful survey of the situation it was
decided to give the ball in the Lin
coln hotel upon Thursday evening
February Htli. Tho sale of tickets
will be strictly to university stu
dents and those connected with the
college. Since the Lincoln hotel
will not admit of more than seventy
live couples dancing and since from
between one hundred and lifty to
two hundred dollars will bo expen
ded upon the affair, two dollars
will be charged for a ticket.
Friday the original committee
wsis enlarged and now embraces
the chairman V. K. jMcLuuis, Fill
bury, Brown, Sedgwick, Wilson,
Adams, Pulis, Kccd, Abbott, Miss
Webster, Miss liarley, MUs Kick
etts, Miss Whiting and Miss Tay
lor. From the general committee were
selected for the committee on pro
gram, Adams, Wilson, Miss AN co
ster, Mi&s Kicketts and Miss Tay
lor. For tho committee on decora
tions, Miss liarley, Fillsbury ami
Brown, for the committee on re
ception, Sedgwick, Pulis and Miss
W luting; for committee on ticket:,
McLueas, Sedgwick anil Keeu.
Tickets may be obtained from mis
last committee on Wednesday tlie
3Uth, as only seventy-five ticketb
will be sold the quicker they are
obtained the better.
