The offleci'H of the Oratorical usso elation llae )lanncd for a iiiiihh meet Ing of Htudenta and faculty nest Wed ncHdny after chapel time In the Inter ests of the oratorical content next Fri dny night, KpecehcH will be made by repreHentativeH of the faculty and nlso of the Hturients, It Ih planned to have thiH iiiiihh meeting rival those that hac been held In past yearn, for a nlmllar purpose. It Ih hoped that, it 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. The sophomore class meets to-day to elect a board of editors for the. Som brero, which they expect to publish next year. Already a multiplicity of candidates have nppearcd to contest for the. vari ous ofllces. In order to satisfy all ele ments in the class there is a sentiment noticed on the part of many to create more places, so that nil may be satis fled. While it may smooth iiiutiow. out at this time to elect three editors thief ami Hire, business nmiiii"!'-. j it will be a Hcomee of uiu-ii-iing trouble in the future. It was the e- perlcnce of the boiiril,!! editor "f the Hoinbrero Issued !). " '118" that two. or even one, editor in chief unit two haul iichh malingers are ample and Hlmpll (Ich matteiH to ?i ninrlced degree. Two headH to the undertaking eonipllentes inatterH much, but three would I)'1 lm ineaHiirably worse, Hindi work a Ih required from the editor Ip chief Ih en tirely esecutlw In Its nature and can better be performed by one person than by two, and much netter b, two than by three. If the class would change Its pnllcj from that of satisfying all factions to that, of getting the, 'vvy best men for the places there Ih no doubt that its chances for getting out an annual would be greatly lucren-cd. Such a thing as three editors in chief Is a tiling unheard of In college cir cles and the class of 11)00 should be very sure that their cuiim Is right before starling out lids innovation. It Ih to be deplored that factional spirit Ih so strong that it Ih put nboe class spirit. It Is to be hoped that to day some elements mny be found loyal enough to their class to lay aside their own personal wishes and go In to elect a board of editors who have the quiili lleatloiiH necessary to get; out a suc cessful annual. To hide hooks away while one In gone to a meal or to a elans is deserv ing of eondeinniijlon. To fall to get a lesson is better than to prepare It at 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 ad infinitum. 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 begin.

"Did it ever occur to you." said the mathematical man in the Co-op., who delights in figuring out difficult prob lems, "how many sheets of paper of the size used in the history folios are used by the students in the courst of a ycuYV" The members of the old ernnir sit Uni on the counters nnd desk stopped dis cussing the Maine disaster and turned with an Interested air toward the speaker. "Did is ever oetmr to you," he repeated, "how much pnper 'these students use in the course of a vear'" The blank faces of the gang assured nun tlicy had not given the matter much thought. Seeing he had made the desired im pression, the mathematical man con tinued. "Well, sirs," he said, picking up a pile of papers covered with a mass of figures, "I have figured it out that these students use in the course of a year 1, .100,000 sheets of this paper.'' i ins last was pronounced in an im pressive tone and he looked tip to see what effect he had made on his lis teners. They shifted uneasily In' their.) seats. Hut he Wl.n- 0I). m-. iMa amount would make a sheet over the campus two deep, inclusive of the are. occupied by the buildings, and would leave enougn over to paper all tho rooms." One of the gang fell off his soap box, but the mathcnmtleal nmn continued undisturbed.

The annual competitive drill Ih al most iiiohI three months distant from the present dale, but. nevertheless the captain of the six companies of the cadet regiment hae their eyes on the cup and each Ih gong about In his own way to win it for his company. Hery one knows how much depends on those in the ranks as well iih on Hie olllcers, when It comes to eompetl the drill, A little enthusiasm ainong the members of the, company always tends to make Hie men drill better ami try harder, For this reason the captains are making arrangements for entertain ing their company in a manner which will serve to arouse the grentest amount of company spirit tuul en thusiasm. Captain Roddy of company 10, wan the llrst to start the ball rolling by giving his company an informal feed at his rooms last Tuesday night, Ev erybody enjoyed the refreshments which were served, and judging com pany spirit by the amount of food consumed company K Is bubbling out With enthusiasm. I.uter In the evening the members of the company spent a short, time in a practice tug of war. Company K Iiiih received a challenge from company V to a tug of war, which will take place in about two weeks, in order to pre pare for thin event Captain 1 toddy had ids men Indulge in a little battle among themselves with a long rope he had secured for the occanlon. One cry pleasant, feature of the evening was a recitation by John Dickinson, of a poem from his own ncn on the re cent disaster to the battleship Maine. By unanimous vote Mr. Dickinson was made the company poet. A civil orgu- ni.ntion of the coin-winy was perfect ed In order to more thoroughly unite its members. Mr. Henry was elected president and Jesse Beans secretary. A company yell was also adopted. It wiih doubtless the vigorous rendi tion of this which caused the. land lord to mistake the noise for some, stu dents singing and to send for the po lice to quell the riot. The' olllcers who responded to the summons made no arrests and the boys were allowed 'to proceed with' their yelling. Following Captain' Noddy's example uipiatn .oyes is preparing to give company V a "blow out" sometime, next week. Jn addition to this the llrst annual eomixiny F hop will take place on Friday evening, March U at Courier hall. The committee on ar rangements consists or Messrs. Drown, Cleland, Clarke, Adams and Atwood. On Tuesday evening, March 15, com pany I) will have a. feed at the Alpha Inn Omega house. Plenty of good w ngs io eat and appropriate toasts will be the order of the evening. Com pany H will give its third annual hop I- rlday evening, March a.',.
