With tho prospect of an Interesting
flolil day exhibition, seme pood hasolml
matches, and. Above nil. the football
gam9 next full, it Is dcslrablo that the
univemlty of XobraskA should poats
sonio swt of an athletic Held. Stops
should be taken ImnwdJiMr? to secure
one. In view of our present financial
condition such a proposition looks like
n drown, but it Is possible. Wo could
buy a fleJd with the mosey we had to
pay for the uso of ono last fall. It
would not be long bofore the oxpans
would pfl for itsolf. It would be an
easy matter to lease piece of ground
for four or five ywire at a low price.

rtmdents upon finishing thedr college

character which makes the alumni as
sociation. A history of the class may
be l&ept, showing what each member is
doing for himself and for thm world.
When there is a general reunion of the
class preparations will be made to at

OUIt SPRING VACATION.
The que ton of vacation Is very close
to a student's heart. Tho gteat nnxl
oty is generally over the longth of it.
It has been announced that tho stu
donts will be glvon a vaontion for the
gonorous porloil of ihreo days. If It
wore not for tho fact that wo hnvo
grown nccuatomed to tho kind and no
blo deeds of the faculty, wo should un
doubtedly feel a small surprise nt hear
ing small joyful news.
U used to be (tfie custom to grant tfw
students a week vacation in tho spring,
and according to nil accounts no stu
deQt ever raised an objootlon thnt It
was too long. Of Into, howevor, we
'.tare only been getting a half of tha;,
time. The faculty decided that a week
was too long to tear a student from the
pleasant company of his instructors, so
chiefly out of regard for the students
they shortoned tho length of the vaca-
t'on. Porhapa titc stttdonts might have
t)ioughtafm things about Uio question
thomsolvos if they wore gi-cn the op
portunity, which thoy wore not.
This mongro recess it should not be
gnlfied by the name "vacation" is
i what students look forward to with
Joy ami expectation from January to
April, and after April thoy have the
i anal examinations to look forward to.
There Is one groat trouble about the
, shortness of the timo that possibly tho
faculty ovorlooks. If you happen to b
! very tlrod whon you go to bod. you arc
quite likely to sloop through the whole
vacation without knowing It. This is
the moat discouraging phase of tho
three days' intermission between
A plan quite prevalent among a cer
tain number is to add a couple of days
(to tho recess on their own authority.
This sdheme seems to have strong rec
ommendations, but unfortunately few
sUidonts feol that their class average
oaa stand itiho inevitable zero bestowed
by the several professors.
AMONG THE PROFESSORS.
ProfOfiser Caldwell's class in Ameri
can history smashed any university
record this week. When they assem
bled the other day the professor failed
to ahow up, but the class wore net to
be balked. They chose one of their
number as acting instructor and went
on with the ceremonies.
Professor Bates will take up his work
on the Cincinnati Enquirer about Hie
first of April.
They are (telling a good thing on one
of the younger members of the faculty,

Ha npjHoached a fellow professor one
day and said:
"AJuny dear fellow,you ought to take

don't And In ah Nebraska."
"Is that so?" said the other. Where
i would you advise me to go?"
"Well, Harvard's about as good as
anj I don't suppose you've ever been
to the oast?"
"No," the friend replied, "I never was
in the east, but I spent three years ait
Leipsig and two at Paris. Perhaps I
missed the culture and polish, though,
by -not going to Harvard."
Chancellor MacLean delivered an ad
