Tho response to Tim Xhiiuahkan's

The following, sung last year, has bosn
changed somewhat (o lit the occasion

In Atlanta, Ga., on the eighteenth
of November, will como one of tho
moat inteiesting gatherings, if not pro
portionately important, of this year of
big meetings. It is expected Unit rep
resentatives of every college fraternity,
and it is hoped, frun as many of tho
chapters of each as possiblo, will as
semble in tho interest of tho general
fraternity movement, to stimulate the
grand old idea that "in union there is
strength," to grasp hands in friendship
and to dispense around a vast banquet
board, that all-ombracing pun-Hellenic
spirit that is tho fraternity spirit.
Pnu-llollonlsin is based on a vory
simple philosophy that of genuino,
broad-hearted altruism and is the
only consistent development of a sin
cere and vigoious fraternity feeling.
So tho fraternity man should encour
age tho action of the promoters of this
convention, and propose to himself tho
possibility of accepting tho hearty in
vitation which has been sent broadcast
among tho Greeks of the country. Am-
(Sieek intending to visit Atlanta's
great exposition would not do well if
ho chose any time for tho trip other
than a period including tho date fixed
for tho congress. Ho will got a taste
of southern hospitality then, for this
invitation is made by southern gentle
men, chiefly of Atlanta, and they have
a pride in such things.
Wo beliovo that tho fraternity idea
is more enthusiastically cherished in
tho south than in this section, and this
may be due fundamentally to that In.
born spirit just alluded to and for
which southern manhood is justly fa
tuous. It is u broad spirit, a noblo one, and
tho proposal for tho Pan Hellenic con
gress seems to bo tho natuiai oNpres
sion of it. University Courier.

Under such circumstances it will not

The entoitiilniuent the membeis of
tho Omaha club provided at Van Den
berg's parlors last Friday for the stu
dents who entered tho University this
year from that city, was a success in
every particular. It was u novel and
inexpensive way of bringing the
Omiihii people together. All became
acquainted witli each other and had a
good social time.
There was an oven thirty seated at
tho continuous ro:v of tables when
Proaldont Whipple called order. Ices,
candies and cako wore sorved, after
which tho program of toasts as pub
lished in last week's Nebraskan, wa
given. Tho class toasts were enjoy
able in tho extreme. Anyone not
knowing Omaim High School patriot
ism might have thought tho speakers
were tho greatest monumental fabri
cators on earth. Hut the mombors all
know how to tako snob hoiiRis mwi
praises and enjoyed them immciisoly.
Tho toast of Miss Nellie Randall for
'05 was the best of tho evening. It
was sot to tho metro of "Hiawatha"
and delivered in her charming way,
convinced all that '1)5 know how to talk
if it wasn't so much of a class. The

Tho members of tho club wish to ex
press their tliaukii to Mr. Van Denborg
for tho excellent service rendered by
hlmolf and clerks and recommend
him to any other club desiring to give
a yarty of similar nature.
