teaching the various branches nnd tho
constnnt addition of literature on the

disciplined mind to do tho most of
fictiu work. Tho wldo nwnho stu
dent, with tho culture ami refinement
of a collcgo course, has certainly
something to do. Tho faculty may
lender much needed assistance in fur
thering tho causo in which thoy have
devoted tho study of a lifetime. With
tho hearty co-operation of faculty and
alumni, a mighty band of men and
women is arrayed against the shack

The Nebraskan certainly regrets the
resignation of Professors Alien and
Wilson. In thoir respective depart
ments they have done thorough work
and helped materially in raising tho
standard and ranking the university
among the higher institutions of
learning. The success which hns
crowned their work hero has In no
small degree paved Jie way for thoir

It must be done. Every means
should be exhausted within our power
to keep professors of national repute.
We must not only keep abreast of
other colleges, but we should surpass
them In the race for leadership. To
do so we must hold tho grent minds
that are In our faculty. Lot It not bo
forgotten that students alono cannot
make a collogo grent. A unlvorsity
that lias a faculty mado up of men
learned in thoir specialties must go
onward and upward. With the resig
nation of three of our most oiriclont
Instructors this year, we. to bo sure,
realize no slight Joss. While we hopo
success may follow them In thoir now
work, let every effort be spent to
make any such changos in the fac

It has boon said from tlmo to
time that we lack higher culture nt
thf university. Those coming to us
from abroad havo told us of the pol
ish and refinement of our oastern sis
ters. We havo hoard with admira
tion of the achievements of their stu
dents. So much has boon made of
their feats in prose and verse, of thoir
orations and forensic eloquence, that
we have come to regard tho oastern
graduate as a higher order of scholar.
To cmulato is natural. We have
longed for higher culture. Thinking
it to lie in mental attainments, we
have bent ourselvos to the acquire
ment of knowledge and tho cultiva
tion of the esthetic. The environ
ment of western life has lavishly sup
plied us with physical strength and
hardihood. Tills endowment wo have
augmented somewhat through athlet
ics. But we have labored more for
scholarship and refinement.

make himself very much In evidence

of a hired man and the wild gallop of n

When he meets you on tho tloor he
stands on your feet with both hools and
waits there a little space of time while
he catches step. If he finds he can't
stand on you, he will job you In the back
with his elbow or kick you on the inside
of tho ankle while you are reversing. If
you happen to be a girl he will step
through your dress two or three times
and nation out your sleeve and walk
up and down your foot whllo you are
debating whether to drop dead or yell
for the patrol wagon. If, however, you
are unfortunate enough to bo a boy, he

leathers and Jabs his elbow In your

leaves an X ray photograph of his
grimy hand on the back of the light
dress of every girl he dances with a
highly original method of labeling them.
Whenever ho takes a girl after refresh
ments he always manages to spill a
quart of ice In her lap. He never
learns how to dance well It Is a pity
he ever learned at all yet hr never sits
a dance out. Ho never apologizes and
never offers to repair a damage. He
is the one human being without a re
deeming foaturo, the one cloud without
its sllvor lining.
