The member of the IcgMl.iture are evi

It does not seem probablo that anything
will como of the attempt of the committee,
appointed to request the regents to en
force the old law, that books should be
furnished students by them, at cost. If
this law could be practically carried out,
It Is certain that the regents would have
done their duly In tho matter when the
law was made. The students who Mind
It, have not made a great dlcnerv. It
has been rend to th.m every thirier.'iy
and published at odd times, evi i since it
was Inserted In tho statutes. In ire llrsi
place, the regents, as a company, could iku

second place, they would Incur more ex

students, estimating the number required,

This question has been agitated before,
and It does not seem necessary to bring
It up again.
There Is an alarming number of colleges
In the I'nlted States which have closed
the football season with a deiieli. Now
this seems to be due ns much to
mismanagement on tho part of tho various
managers, as from lack of loyalty and
support from the students. Those who
have charge of the tlnancus do not eem
to appreciate the responsibilities of their
positions. They start out by hiring a
coach, trainers etc., without llgurlng

the Solons in the department of Ameri
can history Professor t'aldwell proceeded
to give the committee one of his entertain
ing and instructive lectures which brought
forth mat y questions from his Interested
listeners. Every member of the committee
was highly pleased with the facilities for
good educational work, the prollcleucy
with which the several departments are
managed, and the desjutch with which
the work Is done. One legislator was over
heard to remark. "I had no Idea that Ne
braska was honored with such an Institu
tion of learning. It is far above my high
We are certainly gratilled with the fav
orable reception the work of the univer
sity was received by the members of the
committee. It only attests the already
strong belief that we will receive liberal
appropriations from this .eslon. In spite
of the heavy Indebtedness under which the
slate Is laboring. The action of our legis
lators shows beyond doubt that the twenty
third assembly Is comprised of men of
strong educational procllvlsles. It Is use
less to say that the committee was ad
vised by each department of lis needs, and
what was conducive to the healthy growth
of the university. We hoie thai before
the legislature adjourns, every member of
the present session will have visited the
university so ihnt they may go home to
their constituents impressed with the
fact, that the state university is an Institu
tion of which the citizens of Nebraska may
be justly proud.
Today, Friday 23. end the tlrst .semester
of tho present college year. In some ways
this has been one of the most successful
in the history of the university. With the
elimination of part of the preparatory de
partment, we have taken a step toward
making this a university in the fullest
sense of the word. The different depart
ments have made their work the very best
that a summer's study and investigation
can -)o. They have left nothing undone,
that the conditions would permit, by way
of Improvement. As a proof of this fact,
it need only be noticed how many new
courses the heads of certain departments
have offered. In history, economics, phil
osophy and agriculture, new courses have
been added. In addition to these, the fin
al orzanlzation of the graduate school Is
indicative of progress. Among the events
of the semester should be noticed the
activity and Influence of the university
students In the late election, the Pallad
ia n silver anniversary, the addresses In
the chancellor's course, the debate and
also the good work being done by the col
lege settlement. All these together with
the recitals, receptions, entertainments,
and the general satisfactory work dono In
the class rooms, make the semester Juit
closed one of the liveliest and most pro
ductive In the history of the institution.
providing that say. ten percent of the
surplus should go to the manager, maybe
this would be a sulllclent stimulus to pre
vent a dellctency from piling up at the
end of the season. One thing Is certain.
Itadical steps must be taken by tho var
ious associations, or they will bring their
colleges so Into debt that It will relleet
unfavorably upon these institutions.
The L'nlversPy Glee club has returned
from a successful tour. Who says that
we have not the material for a glee club
that will challenge favorable comparison
with those of eastern colleges? The train
ing which tho boys have gone through le
SHaks credit to themselves and Manager
Kimball. The reports received from the
cities the club visited aro complimentary

in the state pres. Ia?1 the boys keep up
their good work and the university will
profit thereby. In all probability the cluo
will entertain us with some of their de
lightful -ongs on Charter-day. Wo certain
ly as a student tody will gratefully appre
ciate their kindness.
When the university of Nebraska places
herself in comparison with other univer
sities of like standing, she sees that she
possess some qualities that makes her ex
tremely proud of herself. One of Hie. Is
the absence of hazing. Another, the abol
ishment of the annual scrap between
freshmen and sophomores over the fresh
man social. The university of Nebraska
Is young, and these ancient customs have
not had a chance to take a strong hold
upon the members of the various clashes.
When we read of such doings and action
that hapiten at the more cultured easiern
colleges, we are inclined 10 pity them.
As a whole our university may pj,-
some bad qualities but we are frej from
some things and we are tni'y thankfu.
Judging from ihe manner that athletl
are run at the university of Iowa, ii is
no wonder that they did not have a rrp
tcsentatlve at the league meeting. It ap
pears that there is less college spirit in
our sister university than there is in our
own. Now that Iowa's faculty begins :.
take some Interest in her athletics, maytx
thoy can do something better. There U
nothing that will kill athletics in any
college quicker than Indifference on tin
pan of members of the faculty.
