Thoro ajo strango events that hnppon In
tbo rogular grind of college life. Some of
them are extremely pathetic. Hut they
happen unknown to anyone, and some poor
luckless fellow has departed with his
troubles kept to blmsolf. A city merchant
tolls an Incident Hint touches tho heart
of everyone who bears It. One evening.
Just before clot-lug a university student
approached him, and asked to borrow his
push cart. After sonio preliminary In
quiries, tho boy said thnt ho wanted to
haul bis trunk down to tbo depot. No,
It wasn't vacation, but ho was going home.
Tho fact Is" ho told tbo merchant. "1
Imvo boon on tbo ragged edge for a couplo
of weeks, and am Just toppling over." It
was tbo most cheerful way ho could put
It. Tho cart was returned boforo daylight
tho next morning. Cards marked "with
drawn" were subsequently seat to the ex
ecutive olllco, and tho educational career
of one young man was tomparurlly
cheeked. Wo will expect to see him agnln
noxt September, when he bus more money,
but such Incidents should servo to show
us what advantages we ore enjoying, and
make us appreciate them.

growth of tho Institution lias placed It aul 10 8tlirs wh ler w
where It Is unable to stop or recede. The wlnklB .ulyi )ou
Tho university oxtenslon course offered
In political economy. Is iccelvlng favor
able recognition by tbo general public.
Tho class consists at present of tbo lead
Ins business and professional men of tbo
city. The earnestness with which they
take up tho work Is certainly commend
able and frlutful results mny be antici
pated. Tho department of economics
hopes to make this course ns olllclont as
that offored In tho curriculum proper.
Thero Is no reason why It should not bo,
but every reason why It should. Tho aim
of the university Is to oxtond Its educa
tional Inlluoneo ns far as possible. Alio
every effort Is being inado by tho profes
sors through their public lectures to
arouso Interost In every department of
higher education. TbU step Is takon by
tho economic department under the di
rection of Instructor Steams, and Is a
now departure. But tho course will un
doubtedly bo a permanent thing In uni
versity work. Tho lending collogos of tho
country linvo rocogplTicd tbo necessity
and wisdom of such work, and wo certain
ly are not going to bo far In tbo rear, In
making It an offoctlvo sorvlco, Is our wish.
XI Is at this tlmo moro than an other
that tho eyo of tho public aro directed nt
the university. Therefore ovoryone should
sec that ho docs nothing In nn way that
could attract public criticism. Class
"scraps" aro ono of tbo ways that re
sult In drawing tho vulgar gaze to tho
doings of our students. Wo refer of
course to tho tho unsoomly notice thnt
has been drawn to tho law class. "What
does the public care about barb and
frats" Why Is It nocossnry for anyone
to write an open lotter of n column to In
sert In ono of the largest state papers?
What good did It do the writer? Nono, but
somo wary and crnbld legislator has prob
ably pasted It In bis scrap book, and is
preparing a impar on favoring "such go
ings on." More foolish arguments than
thetM were brought up two years ago.
If anyone has any grievance, his coller;
paper should be the first place be should
go to correct a mlsnpprebonslon. To In
sure, the Nebraskan might have not con
sidered such articles as have been pub
lished, yet they woro presented to neither
of tho college pnpors. Wo cannot correct
the editorial management of othor papors
but, studonts at loast should see that thoy
have no band In bringing uitfavorablo
comment upon tho university.
Tho dologatos to tho annual mooting of
the Western Intor-colloglato football
league moot at Lawrence, Kansas, tomor
row. Tho rogular business of scheduling
games will be done, and minor mattors
brought up. This year, tho Kansas and
Missouri gamos come to Nobraska, and
may bo played by us at any place we may
designate. Thero Is no question but that
Lincoln can patronlzo tho two games suf
ficiently to mako thorn both financially
successful. But wo should not schedule
more thnn ono moro game, if wo aro going
to have these two. Tho trouble this sea-
luereaoo In tho number of undents, the
higher and more etllclent educatlounl
methods of teaching, tho splendid labor
atory facilities and the advantages of a
largo and well erected library, all attest
the wondorful advance and the splendid
possibilities of the unlvorslty.
Wo are contldent that the university
will recelvo a liberal appropriation from
tho legislature In splto of tho Indebted
ness of the stnto and tho necessity of
practicing rigid economy. No taxpayer
In Nebraska will over regret the mite bo
spends to aid tbo freest and fullest devel
opment of a typical university. To hin
der a normal growth of tho many depart
ments of educational work for tho sake
of funds Is purely educational suicide. By
doing everything to mnko tbo members
of tbo legislature familiar with oven the
details of tho workings of tbo sevornl do-
imrtmonts, will Impress upon them tho
importanco of giving tho demands of tho
regents duo consideration. What Is plain
ly tho duty of every loynl student? It Is
evidently to let every legislator under
stand the exact status of affairs In this
Institution. Do not go home nnd think
only of having a good time during tho hol
idays. But tell your parents, your neigh
bors nnd most of all tell your ropresontu
tlvo of tho prldo our university Is to tho
state, of tho Important work It Is doing
and whnt Is nocossnry to Increase Its pres
tige. Tho students while at homo wlold
a mighty Inlluoneo not only upon tho log
Islntois, but for higher education, hot
us not bo wayward In our duty and we
will have no reason to complain.
