From all that can 1k lenrned. the other
colleges of tin' stntc are lonving to the
student of the university of Nebraska,
the task of defeating the anti-football bill.
The Nebraska!) wishes to suggest to Its
exchanges, that wo are not the "only
shirt In the laundry" If we do think so and
students of other colleges should talk the
mntter over with senators and represen
tatives from their district.
There are hardly requisite words In the
English language that are competent to
express the amount of ridicule the aver
age fraternity man would like to unload,
at the resolution Introduced Into the
house of representative- by Hyatt of
Platte. To attempt to check tho greut
American college Greek letter fraternity
system, Is laughable In the extreme. Tho
system has been In vogue for several
enrs, but the ridiculous reasons set forth
bj Mr. Hyntt for nbollshlng fraternities
from the university of Nebraska, well
Just Imuglne. The only reason thnt the
gentleman hns. that nppears on tho sur
face, Is. that If Major McKlnley la n frat
man. that Is enough to condemn the sys
tim in his eyes.
ture are taking In tho wolfaro of tho uni
versity, lint It fnllH to seo tho necessity
of upending energy and tlmo In consider
lim tho wisdom and oxpodloncy of cor
Inln college eimtonm nnd practices. TIiobo
nro matters which are purely of a local
nature and undoubtedly come within tho
provlnco of tho unlvorslty autl.orltles. If
t'.istoniH and organizations prevail among
the students which to somo are ethically
wiong, there Is no ono who will sooner
renllzo It than the fnutilty. Wo doubt thu
advisability of bringing college rtolngt Into
the domain of legislation, unless It Is an
urgent necesMlty for our preservation anil
development. Tho antl-frntemlty bill wiih
I'irtalnly Introduced without forethought
and Investigation on tho pnrt of the auth
or. To bring such n question Into tho
realm of politics Is uncalled fi r nnd pro
duces unnecessary common. 'e do not
doubt thu right of ilui hif.l-'lntoi" to look
Into all college practices To l sine,
some eastern collugus have Ih-oii accus
tomed to bolsterousuosH and In fewer In
stances allowed college spirit to go so fur
as committing nets which aro disgraceful
to an Institution of learning. Hut (his
doos not hold true with western univer
sities. The students of tho latter always
have had a loftier conception of coltego
doings. We are far from criticising the
action of the legislators In university af
fairs, If their policy Is conducive to grout -
ot elllolcncy In educational work.
A DARWINIAN'S MEMORY.

Where rich perfumes would well nigh

When I had older grown, and swam tho

And when the coast was clear, I'd some

Harvard tm Yalo are again united, Af

Tho Dual agreement directly resulted from

Next Tuesday evening tho political
economy club and wo might say. tho uni
versity Is to bo favored with a leoturo by
Dr. Victor Rosewater . His subject, "Tho
Difllcultie of City Charter Making" t do
serving of study by every student. No ono
Is more competent to present this com
plicated problem of municipalities than
Mr. Ropc-wnter. And It Is to be hoped that
the students generally will seize the op
portunity of hearing this important sub
ject handled In a scholarly manner. Tho
political economy club has been doing ef
fective work In the line of procuring good
lectures upon the live topics of the day.
and the club urges that the students, re
gardless of whether they are members or
no. should patronize the lectures. No one
can fall to get some Ideas wortny of tr
'ous thought. The work of the club Is .n
connection with the university work prop
tr. and everyone ought to appreciate the
opportunities It offer.
There are a few of our brightest stu
dents who persist In utilizing the class
hour with unnecessary questioning nnd
tedious discussions with the professors.
This may be all well enough for the par
tlcb concerned, but It Is decided')' weari
some and unlnstructive to the rest of tho
class. We go to the class room to hoar
the professor lecture and not to listen to
a dialogue upon a favorite topic of some
particular student. The claim as a whole
loses Interest and nomv of Us members
even become drowsy. The student who
wants to display his Intellectual attain
ments before the class must bear In mind
that he is doing it at the patience of his
classmates. A sensible questioning is al
ways allowable and certainly appreciated.
Even a terse and lucid discussion may be,
at times wise and appropriate. Rut in
some classes these privileges are carried
to the extreme, until they are productive
of more harm than good. Remember there
Is a limit at which forebearanee ceases to
bo a vlrtut. If the professor has anything
to say. we want to hear it, and not the
ideas of some particular student. It is
not always the student who does the mo.t
talking In the lasB room that best under
stands tho subject studied.
The Nebraskan certainly appreciates
