Tho awkwardness of the present plan of
appropriating university funds should be
called to th attention of tho members of
tho legislature. All funds recolved by the
regents for university purposes, except
moneys accruing under tho provisions of
tho Morrill nnd Hatch bills, must ilrst be
turned into tho s.nto treasury und thon be
appropriated by the legislature before they j
can bo used. All proceeds from tho endow- !
mont fund; nil Incomes from university
and agricultural college lands; all taxes
levied by the stato for university purposes;
and all matriculation, diploma and lab
oratory fees go into tho stuto treasury
and cannot bo used by tho regents until
tho legislature appropriates them.
Why should such a system bo main
tained? It places tho university in a pe
culiar position. Money that has been
raised especially for tho university, and
cannot bo used for any other purpose,
must wait for tho sanction of tho legis
lature before it can bo used. The statutes
of the stato preset Ibo that all matricula
tion fees "shall bo held ns a library fund."
This fund cannot be used for any thing
else, but beforo any books can bo bought
U must bo appropriated by tho legislature.
Why should tho legislature be burdened
with this unnecessary registration? Tho
plan of appropriation should bo simpli
fied. All of these funds should pass di
rectly Into tho hands of the regents and
bo appropriated by them. Tho regents
know where they are needed, they are ac
quainted with the conditions of the Insti
tution, and tho regents ought to be free
to Invest these funds at tho time and In tho
place where they nro really necessary.

Tho university authorities are to be
commended for their action in establish
ing check rooms for students' clothing.
Although It comes rather late, and ns a
necessity, still from present Indications,
warm nnd costly clothing will be worn
for somo weeks yet. The fortunate ones
who yot havo overcoats left, can go to
classos and recite without worrying and
wondorlng whether thoy will have to go
back to their rooms with no.hlng on tholr
hacks. Now that tho rooms havo been
put In working order, thoy should bo pat
ronized liberally, as every tlmo n coat Is
stolen, It does not advertise tho univer
sity favorably. Now ',hat such nn ovont
is mado impossible if tho propor caro Is
taken, studonts should see that It does no;
happen. Anyono who Is too lnzy to walk
to tho basement for tho purpose of secur
ity to Ills wourlng apparel, desorves to
suffer by loss.
Everybody should soon bo ready to lend
their support and enthusiasm to baseball.
Nebraska promises to show up well In
this branch of athletics this year, nearly
overyono of the old players aro back, and
with the promise of having an efficient
coach, our boys ought to lead tho other
neighboring colleges a hard race for first
place. It will tako good patronage at all
tho homo games to meet expenses. This
sport has more sanction from those out
side of the university, than has football,
and tho Btudents owo It to tho unlvorslty
to seo that It Is properly supiorted.
No ono can complain of the way the foot
ball finances were managed this year. In
THE SUBSTANCE OF HIS HOUSE.
(Q. P. Putnam's Sons, Publishers. N. Y.)
"Llfo Is at best a shadow on the wull
That pleases children, death an Idle tale
Of ghosts, told In tho nursery, when palo
And low the lights burn."
So says Mr. Prosser Hall Frj'o In "The
Subsumed of his House", nnd to thoso
who hold his vlow (Of llfo ajid death,,

strong exponent of a trend of thought
very marked among a certain olass of
writers at tho present time.
The sympathies and energies of the
poet nro not turned outward to vitalize
things animate and inanimate. For us
tho poem "Silence" questions;

Or culm, hushed evenings, when tho sun

Or somo melodious song that clings about

How shall I sing, when 1 have aome to

And this questioning,
"Probing, anil forovor probing with Its
To loose tho secret centers at it eoro,"
Is tho burden not only of tho Initial
poem, "Tho Substunoo of his House" -but
of tho ontire book. In tho "Vision
