large attendance will prove that we
Htill have enough college spirit left
to support one of the. nioHt. important
organizations' in the University.
The sixteen debaters are bard at
work preparing for the. final content,
which promiscH'to be an exciting one.
Each Ih Hiire to excrclne bin greatest
ability. To produce n successful argu
ment requires hours and hours of deep
and scientific research. It requires
careful discrimination to Include Ihe
material and exclude, the- Immaterial.
The best of langunge only can avail
the successful aspirant. More time,
more research, more care, more orig
inality and more ability are necessary
in the preparation of one. of these de
butes than in the writing of any paper.
The satisfaction of victory and the
benefits of experience are all the re
wards offered Why could not ar
rangements be mnde whereby extra
credit might be received for this extra
work? In some departments credit is
given on papers that do not represent
one-half the work and care devoted
to one of these arguments. We. com
mend the idea to the faculty and trUst
it may meet with due consideration.
The University oratorical content
takes place in the chapel a week from
to-night. It should be one of. the most
important events during the Univer
sity year. It. will be if the students
do their Hhare. The officers of the
association have done everything in
their power to make the contest a
grcnt success. Owing to their elTorts
an extremely strong number of con
testant have entered this contest. In
dications point to n most successful
contest, providing attendance and en
thusiasm is whnt it should be. But
without the support of the students at
tblB time this annual contest will be
u failure. If there Is any college spirit
left with us let it be shown at this
time. Let everyone turn out to the
mass meeting Wednesday in order to
get the proper amount of inspiration
for the contest-Friday night. Let all
who .have any pride in our University
make it a point to be in attendance
nt tho contest. As long as there is an
oratorical association in the Unlver
Hlty of Nebraska it is the, duty of
every loyal student to support it by all
means in their power.

If the class would change Its pnllcj

its chances for getting out an annual

the expense of a deserving classmate.
Yet the perpetrator of such dishonest
tricks has the tangible hope of going
to class prepared for recitation.
To wilfully appropriate the property
of others with the Intention of rob
bing the owner of Its use Is not only
dishonest, but also a crime In sight of
the law. Such offenders, when appre
hended In our midst, are usually sum
marily expelled from the institution.
That they are not treated more harsh
ly is due to the fact that tho aa is, in
the majority of instances, surrounded
by extenuating circumstances, "llrst
offense," "great temptation," et cetera
Hut there is a class of offenders who
pester the student body without even
these shadows for an excuse, (io into
the library at any time from 8 in the
morning till 10 In the evening and you
will rccogni.e them at almost every
nothings. Their tongues keep up n
continuous chick. An occasional titter
is but partially suppressed with diffi
culty. Students, real students, try In
vain to ignore their presence. Freez
ing glances and reproving looks phase
them not. Like the Hies or summer
they continue, their pestiferous buz
zing oblhious of how they Inflict the
innocent. Such people are but para
sites on the student body proper. If
their home training has been so far
neglected, or if they so far neglect
their home training that the renroofs
of librarian nnd friends go unheeded,
decisive steps should be taken at once.
A few suspensions or expulsions would
doubtless create the desired effect. In
such action the authorities would have
the support of seventeen hundred suf
fering students, so let the good work
