Now that drill has commenced for
this year, some discussion has arisen
among tho non-commissioned olllcera
of the battalion as to the advisability
of doing away with tho gold chevrons
and returning to tho black cloth chev
rons of two years ago. When tho gold
chevrons were adopted last year it was
urged in favor of tho change that on
battalion parade the non-commissioned
officers would bo easily distin
guished, whereas tho Mack stripes on
the blue background were not suf
ficient to distinguish tho officers from
However, there seems to be a reac
tion In favor of the old style, which
had the double advantages of cheapness
and neatness. Tho black chevrons
looked as well at tho end of the year
as at tho beginning, while tho same
could not be said of tho gold chevrons.
This is especially true if tho cadets
work in the chemical labratory, as
the gold stripes ?pon turn to a dark
greenish color. Another advantage In
favor of the old chovrons is that they
are not so loud and can be worn any
place without attracting attention.
Ab nearly all the privates in tho
Pershing Rifles are non-commissioned
officers in tho battalion, the black
chevrons would greatly improve the
appearance of that company, as tho
boys can hardly afford two blouses.
At present tho Rifles present much the
appearance of a brass band with all
their gold stripes, and It is hoped by
many of Ub members that there will
be a change soon.
Among the many late articles writ
ten upon the "Education of Women,"
is one by President Canfleld of Ohio
State University, which has appeared
recently in an eastern publication.
The title of the article Is "An Experi
ment in the Education of Girls."
President Canfleld has outlined in this
article a scheme for education in
domestic science. Tho course is regu
larly four years, one-third of which
deals directly with domestic science.
Tho scheme is broad, capable of giv
ing general culture and bids fair to be
immensely practical. In the genoral
culture course little is given to'
directly fit young womon for what, in!
the natural course of events, will be-
come their life work. This plan Is'
certainly admirable and has been os-j
tabllshed without university prcco-l
dent. Much depends, however, upon ,
the activity of tho young women In1
taking hold of the course. , i
The talk given by Dr. Hastings in '
chapel Monday morning was indued i
beneficial. If our athletics aro to be
athletics In the college sonso, lot ua
have them always and forever free
from any taint of professionalism. If
our athletic name in the east 1b not
as bright as it should be, let us strive
that this year it may be well burn
ished. Nebraska Is capable of bettor
things along this lino,
If one may Judge by tho '98 class
meeting, class spirit, at least, is not
dead In Nebraska. The sophs also
give evidence of class activity in the
challenge sent to the freshmen. We
have reason to hope that by the time
of the first foot ball game a large
sized college spirit will be forthcom
ing. Tho Nebraskan would klndl sug
gest to a few that tho University is
now in good running order and that it
Is high time to buckle down to work.
The "critical period" In tho life of
the student comes In the first half of
tho freshman year. A realization of
this Bhould mean work.
Tho North Western Monthly Is bo
coming almost a University publico-'
tlon, judging from tho numbor of con
tributors who aro Unlvorslty profes
sors. In tho September and October
Issues may bo found tho beginning of
3ovcral series of articles by various
professors, which would bo a great
help If read by studontB, who, at times,
fall to get tho full thought or signific
ance of a lecturo In tho class room.
Among nrllcles now running may bo
mentioned: American History Studies,
II. W. Caldwoll; Studies In Literary
Interpretation, L. A. Sherman; Munic
ipal Government, Mrs. W. G. L. Tay

History, R M. Fling. On tho Teach

Having three horses for hill work, the

by a clrclnglo wrapped nearly twice
