There has been a growing spirit in the
University of Xebrnbkii in favor of de
bating organizations and opposed to ota
torical associations. I.nst ear arrange
ments were made to bold annual debates
with Kansas University, which proved
an honor to both institutions in the de
bate which was held in Kansas last June
This year a greater mtetest is shown
in the work and thirty-one have regis
tered in the preliminary debates, which
will determine who is to represent Ne
braska in the next debate, which will be
held in Lincoln. All the students should
turn out to these preliminary debates
and help this good work on. I here is
nothing more helpful to a student who
wishes to become ellicieut in public
speaking than these debates, and we
should do all we can to aid them.
Among the important steps that the Uni
versity has made this year is the found
ing of this college debating association,
and it is hoped that it will prove a
We know how to receive a victorious
foot ball team. We did it last year in a
manner that was entirely satisfactory to
all. Why can we not do it tins year?
The result of the Denver game, whatever
it may be, should not have any influence
with the amount of enthusiasm we are
to raise ou the team's return. The boys
are coming back from their first trip.
Now is the time to show your enthusi
asm. There is no cause for waiting until
tlie end of the season before any demon
stration of our appreciation of the team's
work is shown. We want to do it now.
At the beginning of the season, when it
will count, is the proper time.
There ought to be a mass meeting
called for Friday or Saturday afternoon
or evening. That rope we used last year
is stowed away in one of the Co-op lock
ers. It is within easy reach. I.et a com
mittee of two or three be appointed to
make the proper arrangements, and with
the co-operation of everyone we ought
to have another "howling success."
If all that can, will come to that mass
meeting with very little time and trouble,
a program can be arranged for the recep
tion of the team. This ought to be done.
It is our duty. Let some energetic fel
low get ahold of this project and push it
along it's a good thing.

countenances at this neglect ou the part
ol the managers in overlooking them,
but they make up for it by taking one
out of the box anyway. This is nil riubt.

Why do not our wheelmen orgnnUe a
club? Judging from the number of
wheels we see about the campus every
day, we think an organization of this sort
could have a large membership. Itoth
the University and the wheelmen would
be the gainers Some good bicycle races
could be arranged for field day, interest
ing wheeling matters could be discussed,
possibly with a close organization some
accommodations for the wheelmen could
be seemed. Then one would not have to
be wondering if his wheel was safe when
he ought to be listening to a professo. "a
lecture. Moreover the social advantages
which the members would obtain would
alone be worth what little trouble it takes
to organize. Permission to use a room
for regular meetings could be easily sec
ured. Here discussions and a good social
chat could be held, bringing men with a
common hobby together. They would
know what to talk about. Who ever saw
two wheelmen, although they be total
strangers, who could not thoroughly en
joy themselves in a conversation pertain-
AROUND THE CAMPUS.
The Quarter-back, the Hanjo Fiend,
tho Gilded Fool and the Mar Idiot
were in a group near the south door,
talking about the races. They had all
been out to the paik the dav'betore
that is, all except the Star Idiot, but
since he was an exception to all gen
eral rules ho was never counted in.
The reason why the Star Idiot was not
out was because he-did not know that
the races were on that particular day.
Ho had read the adveitiseinenls and
had a vague idea that tliov wit- in
corny fl sometime, but he did not
think of looking lor the date, and, of
course, no one told him, because they
never told bun anything it was too
useless. The Gilded Tool was evident
ly very much worked up and his stam
mering talk was full ot "honiestietch,"
"broken tandem" and "mini in blue
suit." Whenever the Gilded Fool was
intensely interested his tongue never
seemed to work right, and today his
speech was very ineohoient. lie was
one of those very neivous people who
got oxolMl over nothing and when
anything interesting occurs are on the
verge ol insanity. The Gilded Fool's,
laugh was ptutly exuberant and partly
'What made mo tired," stud the
Quarter-back in his usual drawl, "was
the way they cut us out of that last
"JJut the riders had to catch the
train," broke in the Gilded Fool.
"Catch nothing,-' sniired the Uanjo
Fiend. "Don't make that sort of a
drive at mo. I'm from Missouri."
"Why, I thought you were from Da
kota," said tho Gilded Fool, iimonmiilv.
The Gilded Fool could never grasp the
moaning ol a slang phrase until after
everyone had abandoned it on account
of its age, and humor, except in its
simplest stnges had no charms lor him.
"I hoard an awfully funny story yes
terduy," began the Stur Idiot, in his
nerve-nicking monotone. "It was
about " J ust then the door opened
suddenly and the Social Straggler
swept in. She did not notice the group
near the radiator and was about to
hurry on when a shaft of ijht from
the closing door shone on the frater
nity plu of the Uanjo Fiend. She
turned around with a winning smile,
which was the result of lonir and dili.
gent practice, and greeted them indi
vidually and collectively. The sparkle
of a lrat pin had a wonderful effect on
the Social Struggle:-. She had been
brought up to believe that a frat pin
was me symbol ol everythitnr desirable
in mankind and she consequently took
great pains to speak to the possessor
oi every badge. The fact that she was
a frat herself did not have anything to
do with tho magical olio t the plu had
ou tho mind and notions of tlm Suoliit
Straggler. The Gilded Fool did not
notice the Social Strugglur; ho was too
luisv tolling tho Star Idiot how "tho
second fuller passed tho II rat one and
thou thoy wore caught up with by tho
follor In blue and tho tandem wasn't In
it and tho man in hluo boat by a half
n wheel " Of course tho Slur Idiot
did not know what ho was talkltur
libout, but ho gavo him his undivided
attention and looked very interested,
which was enough Tor the Glided Fool.
When ho did turn around ho was unite
effusive and asked her If she had seen
tho moos. She replied In the negative
of course, since she never wont inuoh
of anywhere except whore tho Glided
l-'ool was her escort.
"1 want to toil you people a story,"
began tho star Idiot, who soomod de
termined to bo henid. "It was awful
funny and "
"Your English is bad," said tho
Uanjo Fioml. "You should not mix
your adjectives with adverbs." Tho
Star Idiot was not in tho least hurt by
this interruption and was going on
when the Sweet (.'roaturo canto around
tho corner and shut him oil' again,
much to the relief of the rest of tho
crowd. Tho Sweet Cieature was look
ing for the Perfect Monde, but was not
at all disappointed to run into the
Quarter-back. Tho Gilded Fool im
mediately began to toll hor how tho
"man in blue won tho mile open by a
half a wheel." The Hanjo Fiend was
meanwhile grow lug restless; he did not
eaietohoar tho Gilded Fool tell his
tale for tho thirtieth time, and besides
he saw tho Star Idiot watehiinr bis
chanco to tell his story, so ho broke
away and went over to tho mail box to
talk with the Politic Maid. Ho did
! not admire the Politic Maid very
much, but she had a charming cousin
in school, and it was a good" plan to
stand in with the family.
The group by the radiator had been
augmented by the Shy Youth and
the Ladies' Man, and they wore all do
ing their best to choke off the Gilded
Fool. When he had told lliein for tho
hundreth time that the "man in blue
came over tho tape ami a half ahead,"
his breath gave out and he was com
pelled to discontinue his narration.
"1 heaid an awrully funny story,"
began the V-ir- IUiot again, "and it
was just " but that minute the
chapel bell rang and the Star Idiot's
story was never told. n. S.
