Attention cannot bo dlroutod too
strongly to the advantage whloli de
bating clubs and tho training In elocu
tion and public speaking off or In thin uni
versity. Tho ability to express one's
thoughts readily before an audience Is
In the majority of cases acquired rather
than natural. A fluency of language and
terseness of expression are, qualities
which tho world .Is muro and more de
manding of tho college man and woman.
Tho thoughtful public asks for some
thing more than rhetorical phrases.
Speech must be accompanied by dullness
of Intellect. The thoughtful will tolerate
no other kind. Where may wo get tho
training ncvcsinry for this olllelencyV
The public Is not a lit object upon which
to experiment. Wo must go elsewhere.
A society or class of those who are all
united lu their efforts to reach tho same
Si I affords tho best advantages. Each
ono Is eager for tho training that conies
from mutual exchange of Idca3 and crit
icisms. Sj thoro Is n fooling' of general
The debuting clubs In tho university
give every student a splendid opportun
ity for training In public speaking. Do
mostliiinos when questioned us to tho host
method of oratorical training Is said to
have replied; "Practice, practice, pract
ice." Time has demonstrated tho wis
dom of his saying. This discipline- must
bo Included in every well-rounded course
of study. So to thu now students; and
others as well, tho debating clubs cor
dially extend Invitations to visit mid Join
In their meetings in this noblo work.
A week from tomorrow, the football
teams of the university of Nebraska and
of noano college, will moot In tliU city.
With n possible exception, this will be
tho only Interesting game that the ma
jority of our students ran expect t" wit
ness. It therefore lielioovos us to make
tho most of It Tln-ro Is leally a good
chanco bore to bilng out some of our
"moss buck" studonts, and show them a
good time. Everything Is conducive In
making this date the most enjoyable one
of tho your. Iloro aio two oollego which
uro to moot In good naturod rivalry.
Doano has always shown her onthuslusni
In sending it largo delegation to Lincoln
to witness this nnmi'il struggle. What
ought Nobraskn to do on hor own
grounds? At the least calculation, there
ought to bo eight hundred university stu
dents wttnuss this eontost. Tho coming
strugglo Is surrounded with all the col
lego accessories to mako It tho most en
joyable Those of us who pine for tho
opportunity of seeing ono of tho big east
ern gunios, can make this ono Just as
Interesting. If wo put a little of tho col
lege tone to It, rather than that of a
funeral, the students of this unlvorslty
can bo treated to tho boat amplo of
what collogo life moans.
Well, we aro ut tho samo old stand
crying for college songs. This time it U
tho Doune game that Is bothering us.
Everybody Is going to bo right hero on
the spot, and thoio Is no rouson In tho
world why wo can't have some well or
ganized shouting and singing. Tho No
braskan's columns are opon to all, and
next wopk wo expect to print some
choice selections. Now show your loy
alty by trying to concoct Homo unearth
ly conglomeration of words that won't
mean anything, yot that will mako lots
of nolso and sound horrible and wonder
ful. Wo must remombor that on tho duy of
tho Doano game, that wo uro hosts. This
Implies all In referonc.o to ourselves as
opponents, as It does to tho host of tho
hlghoU socloty. True, Doune did not give
us a good example to copy after, but
It might bo that we could do fulrly well
if wo attempted It In our own Ignorant
way. As an exemplary university, wo
should try it at least.
It la to be hoped that tho Unlvorslty
Gloo club will organize early this year.
Tho good work dono by the club in past
years Is certainly recognized. It Is a
duty which wo owe to our Alma Mater
to mako this undertaking one of tho beat
of our college doings. To be sure, tho luli
has not received the financial assistance
heretofore necessary, but we may truth
fully predict that this will not happen
tho ensuing year. Every loyal student
recognizes that a good gloo club lllls un
important plnco In college life. U not
only speaks highly of those who aro
members, but It reflects nonor on our
university. All tho loading universities
uro enthusiastic in this respect uf col
logo doings. Certainly no little tlmo and
money Is spent. Although working up
u good glee club may moan sumo sac
1 illlco on the part of tho students, yet
It Is a matter which ought to be oncour-
aged and made u success.
Tho usual complaint Is mndo of stu
dents disregarding property rights. It Is
to bo expected that nmong u largo num
ber of busy students, there will be a
slight fooling of carelessness In dally af
fairs. When an overworked student
conies rushing out of a recitation and
llnds his hat Is gone, and a poor one left
In Its place, It Is to say the least, provok
ing. Of course It Is always simply a mis
take, but It's queer the trade Is always
one way. Few leave a good hat In place
of a poor one! If It Is collogo splilt to
appropriate what does not belong to us,
lot us restrict our efforts to looting the
enemy. Wo aro all poor financially and
equally unable to purchase extra hats
and unibrollns In thoso hard times. Let
each and every student regard the pro
perty of others as well as of himself.
Hy so doing, unpleasantness and possible
trouble mny bo avoided.
Home means ought to be Invented to
prevent nlmlessly wandering students
from Intruding themselves so suddenly
upon a filled recitation room. Not men
tioning tho disturbance to tho members
of tho class, tho look that conies over
the face of such an Intruder, Incites pity
and compassion from tho unprotected
public. Of courso ho Is not to blame for
supposing that such and such n room
Is not occupied. Oftentimes It Is necos
sary for him to know, and thoro Is onu
way of finding out to make a fool of
hlmsolf for a moment. Hither a p.mo of
ordinary glass ought to bo substituted
for tho ground glass now In the dours
of tho various recitation rooms, or pro
fessors should havo some moans of post
ing a bulletin on tho outside, that would
Inform would-bo Intruders, when a reci
tation was In progress.
As a university wo lack a means of
gathering togothor under tho form of an
organized body. Wo havo no "student
body" as such, a fact that has boon much
deplored on sovoral occasions In the past.

The Youthful Philosopher wap never

u few adoring atollltos. It wai his

though they mount the mmv thing to
the Youthful Phllouophor. On ihla par
tlcular day, ho was much gratified with
tho size of his audience, lie stood In thu

looked over the group beamingly like n
Sunday school teaoher surveying a cl,is,
until his iyo rusted tiMn the Star Idlut
who was dangling about on the bench
as If he had been dropped out of the
tree and stayed Just where he lit. The
Youthful Philosopher know that the Star
Idiot should havo been In tho lab at
that hour, and ho thought some reproof
was necessary. So ho said slowly, "I
suppose you know-" this was certainly
a safo supposition where tho Stnr Idiot
was oonoorncd-"that It Is a disastrous
practice to skip lab?"
"Yes, I know It," argued tho Star Idiot
cheerfully, "but I knew I wouldn't learn
anything If I did go."
This was certainly an unanswerable
argument, so the Youthful Philosopher
choso to Ignoro It. At thut momont tho
Professional Flirt floated out on the
south steps with all her colors flying
with tho possible exception of tho colors
she had put on that morning and vhlch
wore not Intended to fly. Sho was look
ing for tho Youthful Philosopher, though
sho protended sho wasn't. On the othor
hand ho felt quite relieved at being ho
well gratified, lie sat down on a bench
and win about to unload hoiiio original
observations when ho w'ns Interrupted
by tho advent of tho Cracked Tenor, who
saw tho Scrub Chemist and tho Low
Comedian and decided that It would be
a good thing to sing, "Hho Mny Have
Seen Hotter Days."
"Lot's sing 'em a lino," said the
Cracked Tenor, adjusting his hat so that
It looked a trlflo worso than It did before,
"Well, what shall It bo?" said tho
The Youthful Philosopher began to lock
much worried. Thw Professional Flirt
wa.s still on tho stops ready M pounoo
on him and make him walk down town
with her. If such a thing its this did
happen, tho Youthful Philosopher know
what would bo the sad result. Ho didn't
have vory much money with him. but
ho wanted to keep what ho had. On
tho other hand ho felt It was asking too
much of his nervous system to remain
while the hastily Improvised tilo sang
eight or ton verses of a iopular air. He
decided to make an appeal to tho vocal
ists, from tho other source ho knew thoro
was no hope.
"I wish you fellows wouldn't sing. A
trio don't sound nearly as well as a
quartet. Walt until nnothor man conies
along. A trio sounds as If"
Ho wus suddenly Interrupted by tho
Perfect lllond coming up behind them
on tho walk with the Dear Thing beside
her. Tho Perfect lllond was piloting the
Dear Thing mound to seo she didn't get
lost. Tho Dear Thing really never
should havo been allowed to venture out
without a nurse, but tho Perfect lllond i
made a very good substitute. Tho Per
fect lllond was glad that the boys wore
all close together so that one broad '
smile of recognition was enough to satis
fy tho lot. Tho Dear Thing tried to bow
and smile to each ono separately and as
ono might expect was not remarkably
successful. Sho nenrly walked through
