Wo call attention to our that In.sue
with pride, conlldont that It will receive
the pralso It merit h. Kvon koiiio of our
learned professors wore heard to re
mark, "Well, that's the best looking col
lege paper yot Issued at this univers
ity." You heard us mention something
about "small type." This Is the said
type( To toll the truth (we always do)
The Nt-Vaskan Is set by linotype ma
chines, which accounts for that clean
and neat appearance. We only hope
our enterprise nnd determination to
give our readers the best college paper
at the lowest price Is appreciated.
O, where Is that courtesy of the stu
dent body, the chancellor congratu
lated us upon Tuesday morning? Sure
ly It is lacking In that class In English?
We blush to think of how that profes
members of the faculty of the Unlvers
ter It In public. This clnss numbers
nearly two hundred and fifty and hero
just where consideration for others Is
mo3t needed, It Is most noticeably mis
sing. In reading such a list of unfa
miliar names, it was next to Impossible
to pronounce them all correctly, yet a
majority of the class sat and giggled
like a lot of fourth grade scholars when
ever a name was mispronounced.
Gentlemen should have sense enough to
curred was laughable, still It was not
necessary to go Into hysterics over It.
Gentlemen should have snse enough to
abstain from applause at another's
"break," even If they are unablo to re
strain their laughter.
It Is evident that our stock of college
spirit Is running low. Did anyone no
tice that no football practice was hold
Tuesday evening? Uecausc not enough
candidates for positions on' the team
turned out. This is a deplorable state
of affairs. The prospects last week
were considered the brightest that we
ever possessed at the beginning of a
season. The boys nro thoroughly
equipped with sweaters, etc. A pleas
ant and extensive trip has been planned
and the expenses guaranteed. Enthus
iasm and rivalry for positions kept the
boys at work last year and made them
Invincible. Scarcity of material Is a
condition that should not threaten us
with these bright prospects In view.
Wo do not wish to bo considered as
calamity howlers, but merely the facts
are stated. Our team has pulled out
of worse holes than this. We can come
out victorious this yoar If wo go at It
the right way. Thero are a dozen husky
fellows In school who ought to bo rolled
around the foot ball ground a few times
then thoy would wako up and possibly
play a position on the team. We
plead for these fellows to come out and
play. A good shaking up will do them
good. If everybody who was not built
to play would come out and oncourago
the players at practlco, they would bo
working an untold bonoflt toward work
ing up a victorious foot ball team for
the season of '95 for the old U. of N.
The time has como when there should
be a little more care shown in making
promotions in the military department
of the university than there has neen
of late, This department, like all oth
ers, should be run In such a manner as
to give all who enter an equal show
for advancement. But Is it? If class
standing, credit and military form are
all the requirements needed for promo
tion, and they should be, there certain
ly has been lack of painstaking care
In making promotions. State Journal.
Now the State Journal needn't mind
about our military appointments. In
the first place, class standing, credit
and military form are not all tho re
quirements, nor should thoy be. Each
Individual cadet's military record for
tho entire year Is gone over each de
merit noted In making tho promotions,
it Is to bo noted that somo members
of the 'Varsity Utiles fared better than
non-members, ami this Is but right.
Tho drill somo of these men experienced
last year was more rigid and did them
moro good than nearly all of tho re
quired drill. Furthermore, by entering
this company, theso men showed them
selves anxious to drill nnd that they
were Interested In tho work. It Is llt
tlng that they bo rewarded by promo
tions. After a cadet's credits are
looked up, tho next consideration Is his
military record, and fitness for tho po
sition. The amount of drill a man has
had figures largely In this.
As a rule, tho appointments this yoar
give nu much satisfaction as they gen
erally do. Of course, It Is possible a
few deserving men were overlooked,
but as a rule It was their own fault.
Somo had not registered, others had
not taken pains to correct mistakes,
whloh might have occurred In tho cata
logue. It may bo put down as a rule
that tho capable and deserving got theic
anyway so they may depend upon It
that merit will bo recognized sooner
Around the Capmus.
This morning the halls seems more
than usually lively. To the casual ob
server in the main building each morn
ing seems to be much busier and
noisier than the preceding one, but on
this particular day the noise and bus
tle was almost appalling. The Ama
teur Thespian slowly sauntering
along wns struck by the strangeness
of the situation. He was so surprised
that he was almost on the point of ques
tioning some one as to tho cause of the
commotion, but he Instantly dismissed
tho Idea partly because he never asked
questions and partly because he knew
that anything he did not know himself
would be too grave a question for any
one else to answer, so he wisely con
cluded to look around him for his ex
planation. Ho put a black derby on the
back of a very curly head of hair he
knew he should never do such a thing
Indoors, but It wns lots easier than
holding It In his hand and anything that
had the nature of work did not com
mend Itself to tho Amateur Thespian's
The only two persons who were sit
ting down were tho Social Struggler
and tho Gilded Fool. They were perch
ed on tho rndlator near the door. Pres
ently the Shy Youth timidly picked
his way up to where the Amateur
Thespian was standing.
"What are they making so much
noise about?" he asked In his Incohe
rent monotone; "what are they doing?"
"They are not doing anything." an
swered the Amateur Thespian dryly.
"They are merely prancing through the
halls to make a noise. Poor fools."
The Shy Youth did not answer the
last ejaculation of the Amateur Thes
pian. He rarely said anything unpleas
ant nnd when he did, It was la a low,
mumbling tone which no one under
stood. Ho was quite sure of not of
fending anyone, in this way.
The couple on the radiator were very
much pleased with each other's com
pany, and their insipid conversation,
Interspersed with little shrieks from
the Social Struggler and Inane laughter
from the Gilded Fool, went on swim
mingly. The Social Struggler liked the
Glided Fool In every sense of tho
word that Is, she liked him because
ho was glided and because he was a
fool. The relations of tho Gilded Fool
ami tho Social Struggler were quite
amusing. She smiled on him because
he took lior out and he took her out
because she smiled on him, and as
smiles came soldom toward the Gilded
Fool and Invitations were rather scarce
for the Social Struggler, their friend
ship meant a great deal to them both.
They made a very Interesting study of
"It Is a shame to let those two go
together," said the Amateur Thespian,
Indicating the enamoured pair on the
radiator. "The Gilded Fool would
make a real nice harmless child If he
were only left alone."
"Why? Isn't the Social Struggler all
right?" asked the Shy Youth a little
surprised at the tone of the Amateur
"Not for little boyfa. Many an Indi
gent youth supposed ho knew what It
was to be strapped of every cent, until
he met tho Social Struggler. She is a
systematic puller of masculine limbs,
her system is sometimes a llttlo bad
and her method a llttlo cheap, but what
sho lacks In taut and grey matter sho
makes up In Intensity."
"Oh, what of It," broke- in the Ladles'
Man, who had Just appeared on tho
scone. "Don't blame tho girls. AVu
can't got along without 'em and wo
can't got along with 'em, you know."
"I hardly think I would make that
as a general assertion," said tho Ama
teur Thespian. "Wo have never tried
to got along without them, but I am
sorry to say, most of us have tried to"
get along with them."
Just then tho Quarter-back canto to
ward tho door, closely pursued by tho
Princess Pocahontas. He was almost
at the door when the Social Strugglor
called to him. Ho turned and came
back with t-ome HI grace. He had hoped
to escape both girls, but Fate seemed
against him. As soon as tho Princess
Pocahontas saw what was happening,
sho also wont to tho radiator and be
gan to talk to tho Gilded Fool, not bo
cause she had anything to say to
him, but she did not trust tho Quarter
back out of her sight. Tho Princess
Pocahontas was not much of a manag
er, but that sho was a hard and earn
est worker was shown by the hard and
earnest way In which sho worked the
Tho Amateur Thespian wns vastly
amused at the turn affairs had taken
and ho regarded ho group with a gen
erous pleased smile. He was about to
explain matters to the Shy Youth, who
seemed a little mystified, but Just then
tho Politic Maid came sailing along
(perhaps floating would be a better
word anyhow she always gave tho
Impression of stepping on air).
"There she goes," said the Amateur
Thespian, "and If you hurry up you
can walk down to tho car with her."
The Shy Youth wavered a llttlo and
then with his timid little heart In his
throat he went after the Politic Maid.
When tne Amateur Thespian turned
and looked at the group on tho radiator
he was so tickled that he laughed
aloud. Somo of tho Quarter-back's
boy friends were leading him away to
talk musical matters over, although
the reproachful look In the eyes of tho
Princess Pocahontas would have
brought tears to the eye of a statue.
"ity George," said the Amateur Thes
pian to himself as"he slowly went out
doors nnd down the steps, "that poor
girl Is having awfully hard luck. This
Is the second time In a week that the
Quarter-back has escaped her," and he
laughed again as the Princess Poca
hontas came out the door looking
lonely and heart-broken.
A few moments later the Amateur
Thespian saw the Shy Youth come
down the wnlk with the Politic Maid
"Well, It seems that he caught her,'
he soliloquised as he lit a cigar. "Or
else she has caught him," he added as
ho noticed that the Shy Youth was
carrying eight largo books and an um
brella. H. s.
