A t-ilnexilny nftemoou.
Tho university has never ornnol with
better prospects for n successful year's
work. Tho chances In the faculty, we
may pride ourselves on tho fact, have beon
In every respect satisfactory, Tho now
professors are everyone thorouRh scholars
of wide reputation and acknowledged abil
ity. AlthouRh we repret exceedingly tho
departure of some of the faculty of tho
last year, we cannot but congratulate our-
netves vitn tne met ilmi ilum Mt J;.ve
been filled by such excellent men. On
ward and upward In tho grant cause of
higher education, will bo our watchword.
There ts going to lr some fntlmslnsm

1s tin- tlnn to mlk up the matter and
make tin- proper niTnngementx in tee
thnt fv-rl'od Is prepared. It 1 not
onl mom timi is needed, but men. If
you have nt money to give, you m nt
leost use some or your time In urging
some of your big friends to come out
and at least practice on the second elev
en. But tnlk up the footlml sulnorlptlon
ntnl let us show the mnnngor that ho
will not he hampered this ynr liy lack
The Nebrnsknn extends the heartiest
welcome to Conch lloblnson. From what
has beon soon of him, It is snfo to say
that Xelirnska hns secured a jewel this
year. Mr. Kohlnson's character. Is above
reproach, and ho has every attribute to
make up the soholnr and man, He in
tends to study lnw, and towurd that ond
ho will probably register ns a junior law
In our own university, as he Is avorso to
wasting his time. This looks ns if the
bo) s" would not lie regaled so much th
coming Hoason by elaborate accounts of
Yolo and Harvard contests. Tho tonm can
bo sufoly trusted to go on any trip in oaro
of tho coach and managor this year.
The opening of the year is tho time to
work up college enthusiasm. Everyone re
turns fresh, and reudy to entor the lists
to compote for honors of some kind. The
first somester Is usually glvon over to
athletics. This year will bo no oxcoptlon.
The Interest already aroused among tho
football men Is certnlnly gronter than an
ticipated. Thore Is over' Indication, there
will bo no donrth of applicants for places
on tho flrst eleven. Let no loyal studunt
fall to offer his assistance, physloally.fln
anclally or otherwise In making this
season of athletics the best In our history.
It can be done. With tho advantage of
early training, we nood have no fear but
that our boys will make a good showing
To tho new student The Nebraknn
wishes to glvo a few words of ndvloo. M'o
otjer them howover In a humblo spirit and
therefore auk the usual orodullty of the
public. There Is one quality whloh 1b oon
duelve to more Rood to the new student
than almost any other quality of whloh
humanity is the possessor. That is self
esteem. A student of a modest retiring
disposition generally consumes two years
at .college crawling out of his shell, and
then when he Is out, tho ohango makes
him unoertaln, whether he ought not to
crawl right back again. Let no now stu
dent dwarf his capabilities. Do not wait
until after years of oollego life havo
passed hofore seizing opportunities favor
aide to developing a brighter and better
manhood. In the social world everyone is
the peer of his companions. So use dis
cretion. Muoh depends on the beginning.
It is always hotter to leave those who
havo had years of experience to take the
Initiative In college doings. Those who are
destined to become leaders In oollege ai
falrs will And their pluces. Far mlt
never falls to -win whenever it Is found.

CLASS OF NAUGHTY NAUGHT.
Here's an Interesting problem In pho
netics, college slang and propriety all
combined. AVhnt shall the incoming
class of freshmen In the American col
leges be cnlled? According to cus
tom they should be designated as the
slass of -on." Hut on" is nut likely
to be adopted either in writing or in
speech, for It lack the requirements
of n class numeral, whose sound, when
sung or shouted, should have a sonor
ous, far-reaching quality, which shall
enable thi eiasMnen 1 make their pres
ence or their nchievments known in an
emphatic manner, nnd there's nothing
emphatic, phonetically or verbally
about '"00." A happy thought came to
a Johns Hopkins 'US man, who now sug
gests that the next freshman class
shall be known as the "class of
naughty-naught:" This Is n typically
eolleginte way out of it, and never
would have occurred but to an under
graduate, it ought to be a "go." If
any other collage undergraduate has a
better suggestion, let him send it in.
The noble class of 1D00 cannot be al
lowed to come Into xlstanc without
a fitting appalation for strictly collo
quial use. Ex.
