Thisremlnds us that not long ago we
were asked by a certain "co-ed" if we
believed in eo-educatlon. Most cer
tainly wo do. In fact, how could the
dear creature exist without some of
the portentious, omnipresent II. K.
H.'s, 11. S.'s, etc. We remember read
ing in that dainty, iconoclastic, cynical
little "Philistine" about a doctor who
cured forty-eleven eases of hysterics
in a girls' school by allowing the
young ladies to associate with young
men an hour or so each day. We doubt
if some Nebraska cases could Im cured
by such economical treatment, but do
not think the venerable doctor very
far from the proper mode.
The class of 1000 deserves the praise
of the entire school for the admira
ble manner in which they conducted
their election for the annual board.
From the looks of things at their prc
ious meeting it was feared that parti
san spirit was so strong that the class
would be seriously divided, no matter
who should be elected. However, af
ter being given time to cool off the
class got together last Friday and
elected a loard which seems to be sat
isfactory to all factions. No ill feeling
whatever seemed to be engendered by
With such good feeling and loyalty
to the class as was shown, there is
scarcely any doubt that the century
-lass will put out an annual which will
equal in merit if not excel any similar
publication sent out previously.
The board seems to represent all
tactions and organizations of the
school, which will go far in obtaining
the necessary financial support.
The editors elected seem to be the
best persons 5n the class for their re
speetivc positions, which goes far to
wards ensuring a successful sombrero.
The annual oratorie.it contest of the
University of Nebraska takes place in
the chapel this evening. From the
general interest displayed there will
doubtless le a large attendance to en
courage our orators in their efforts.
No student, who has any interest
whatever in eollege events, can alTord
to be absent from the chapel this ev
ening. It is the only way that we have of
showing our loyalty and appreciation
to the institution to which we owe so
much. There is little enough that the
students here can do to repay, in even
the smallest degree, the favors that
are being showered upon them by the
It is only by upholding the honor of
our institution in all events in which
she is interested and in showing our
interest by our attendance that we do
anything at all in return for what is
leing done for us.
As long as it is the will of the stu
dents that there be oratorical contests
and that the University of Nebraska
remain a member of the State Orator
ical association, it is certainly their
duty to support these contests in ev
ery possible way. Tonight the way to
show an interest is io Imj present at
our local contest.
There is a movement on foot among
the fraternities to establish a I'an
Hellenic Baseball league in the Uni
versity. This Idea has been successfully car
ried out in numerous eastern colleges
and universities, furnishing much
amusement and sport to the members
of the Greek letter societies, and to
the schools at large.
The plun is a good one nnd should
be pushed forward by all those who
are interested in such matters.
Last spring some enthusiasts tried
to work up buch a scheme, but for
jsome reason or other things never materialized.

to guide us in oratorical matters. Our
subjects are well chosen, no doubt,

will enthuse an audience if languidly

and it remains for us to bring the
matter of a chair of oratory practical

Could not the Oratorical association
do much in this matter? The fact
that Kansas University has a regular
Instructor in oratory ought to spur
us forward. No doubt such a stop
would greatly aid Mrs. Manning and
relieve her of her arduous bunion.

Miss Sargent, the Woman's Dean nt
Lake Forest university, Chicago, and
Dr. Marcus A. Btiell, dean of theology
in the Boston university, gave short
talks in chapel Monday morning. Miss
Sargent's "little vvonl" to the students
was to the effect that they should
choose a life work that would be pleas
ant for them, instead of an uncon
genial occupation. There, is too much
striving in wrong places already. If
one does not know the profession that

it comes in its own time.
