It made him shiver to seo Mndnm ent,
to hear Madam eat, to know that Madam

a tender question. Tho student who Is

Owing to tho unusual business depres
sion this yenr, tho task of publishing tho
Sombroro will be harder thnn nt first sup
posed. To prevent It being a llnanclnl
failure, every student must sbouldor a
little of the responsibility. Thoro Is such
a largo number of our studonts who lot
these things pass as not concerning thorn,
that no enthusiasm or Interest Is displayed
at all as to tho probable outcome of this
onterprlso. Truo tho business managers
liavo been elected to tnko tho financial
responsibility of tho publication of tho
Sombroro. Hut unless a llttlo more caro
nnd Interest Is shown by a lnrgo number,
It can bo said Justly, that the business
mnnngors wore solicited to tako charge
under false pretenses. Thlp Is roally
what It amounts to. A student should not
reason that ho can get nlong without a
copy of the Sombroro, thoroforo ho will
not got one. Ho should reason thnt ho
must not permit himsolf to be without one,
and mnko a sncrlflco somowhero olso to
procuro a volume.
The work tho department of publicity
Is doing for tho unlvorslty will probably
result tho most beneficially of any that
can bo directed toward advertising the
university fnvorably. It Is the object of
this department to procure Interesting ar
ticles on university subjects, and send
them to vnrlous newspnpors and period
icals, which aro glad to receive them.
Tho Omaha and Chlcngo papers will bo
supplied with Interesting matter from our
unlvorslty. Besides these, the homo pa
pers and the Wostorn Newspaper union
aro well supplied. Tho latter company
print the Inside pages of nearly ovory
country weekly In Nebraska, A groat
deal of university matter finds It way Into
these columns, through the department of
publicity. This mattor could not bo put In
a better space, ns It nlfords state news to
ovory render of country pupors In Nebras
ka. Professor Taylor has ohargo of this
departmont, nnd ho Is pushing It with all
of his characteristic business sagacity.
All the members of tho Journalism class
are assigned special subjects, from which
they aro to work up special nrtlcles. As
credit 1b given for this work, tho students
lmvo tho time to Inquire Into their topics
and get details und facts that tho ordin
ary wrltor would not stop to Inquire about.
Professor Tnyloi would be glad to re

with a vlow of having them published.
