Not least anions the beuellts tie
rlwd from President Kchiirmnn's visit
was the bringing to the Cnlverslty for
the first time, possibly, of Cornell men
resident In Nebraska. Especially
ninoiif,' Omnlia men, anil we think we
speak advisedly, is there a. lack of
knowledge of the exact nature of the
work of our University nnd of its prop
er position nmou educational institutions.
The ideals set forth by President
Schurmnn touched u responsive chord
in Nebraska hearts. He impressed us
ns n fearless, stronp-wllled, whole
souled mnn whose life work has been
and is the. upbuilding nnd education
of the minds of men. We mny have
forgotten ere this his exact words, but
the thoughts and impressions reninin.
His very presence was an Inspiration
we ennnot soon forget.

friends in the student body. Feel that

part of your individual burden. Sub

Doubtless the order kept by the stu
dents in the library is not ns it. should
be. Doubtless the whispering and
laughing is much in excess of actual
needs. Doubtless the librarians do
have a hard time with tlie unrcgune
rntes who frequent the library build
ing. Hut we venture to say thut there
is nothing in the student conduct
which is of so much annoyance, to the
actual workers as the ringing of the
bell which enls up the janitor. For
absolute hidcousness the noise emit
ted by that electric bell is not to be
compured with any other noise going.
It is enough to drive a nervous per
son to distraction and an ordinary per
son to drink. Students linve been
known to hear thnt bell in the day
time nnd then use it as a basis of
dreadful nightmares when they should
have been building worn out tissue.
Jf students whispering is a nuisance,
the ringing of thnt bell is still more so.
If the one is to be suppressed certainly
the other should Imj also.
The class of "lis" has shown tlie
burnt enterprising spirit of any class
In recent years. It has had winning
football teams and base ball tennis. It
has published a junior iiuiiual and Is
soon to Issue a senior book, In every
sphere of cIiism action It has shown
that It Is made of tlie proper stuff.
One thing more needs to m done in
order to pereptuate Its memory, Some
token should be left upon the
campus which would servo always to
remind tlie public nnd future generic
tions that there was a class which
graduated In ISDS. The class of "Ita"
did well but It seems thnt events will
happen which were not, expected and
for some time to come It Is probable
that the gift of "02" will serve to call
to mind the folly of youth niMter than
the enterprise of the. old class. Hut
the present graduating class can erect
some monument to Itself that can not
be burled or serve for the sport of the
rising generation. Something can be
left behind which will serve nlways to
connect "US" withthe University.
Something can be left behind which
will call up a feeling of pride and love
for the class when uuy one of "US"
happens back to Its early Held of ac
tion. Seniors should ponder over the
Idea nnd think up some scheme by
which the nbove object can be idealized.
The proposed cinder trnck is the
most important thing for athletics in
the University thnt has Immjii ndvanced
for years. Not until such track is
built can there be any hope of tlio
University taking the rank that be
longs to her in the athletic world.
It is indeed gratifying thnt such a
movement is at last on foot with ev
ery prospect of success.
The lack of such a trnck has kept
this institution far in the rear of oth
er Universities of equal importance.
It lina lost to Nebraska the chance of
competing with the colleges of the
same calibre, in track events. We have
have had every chance to come in con
tact with crack teams, only to bo con
fronted by tho fact that our nthlctes
have been so handicapped by poor fa
cilities that they felt unequal to meet
ing the teams that they should.
With the prospects of a dual meet
between tho University of Nebraska
nnd Minnesota and nlso the big west
ern meet at Omahn, such a track is an
absolute necessity if the University of
Nebraska expects to stand any show
It is to be hoped that all students
The constitution of the debating us
soclatlon is sadly in need of revision.
Especially is this so with regard to
the method of choosing debaters for
the different debntcs which the Uni
versity will lx engaged in. Under
the provisions recently adopted the
winner of tlrst place in the finals shall
have his choice of debates, the second
in rank will have next choice nnd so
on until the last in rank is forced to
take the only remaining place.
This year we have three debates,
one with Kansas, one with Missouri
nnd one with Colorado. Naturally the
Kiiumih debate Is fur and away the
most important of the three, it is
the debate which was first, entered in
to between Nebraska and any western
institution, and is the debate looked
forward to by all student interested
in debate. In addition to this, the un
pleasant events of last fall during the
foot ball season makes victory espec
ially to be desired. We wish to show
the men from Kansas that, not only
in foot ball but in debate can we bent
And yet whnt is the situation which
now seems to confront tho debating
nssoeiution and the University? The
three debaters who won the first three
places have almost decided to go to
Missouri, the next three in rank have
decided to go to ('(dorado while the
last three are forced to reninin here
to debate with Kansas.
There is no means of judging the
debaters except by the marks given
by the judges. So the man who was
marked first is to all intents and pur
jkisch the best debater in the Univer
sity, while the ninth man on tho list
is the ioorest of those who obtained
places. Hence we see the three. lest
mnn going to Missouri.the three mid
dle men going to Colorado and the
three lowest in rank staying in Lin
coln to represent the University of Ne
braska on its home grounds against
its oldest and most bitter foe.
How can we expect to compete with
Kansas when she sends her very best
men here and our best men go else
where? Certainly If any one ever owned
the University a. duty our foremost
debaters do now. They owo it to
themesclves, our students and to the
University to which has done so much
for them to stay in Lincoln and con
tend against our friends from Kansas.
It is our only hope for victory nnd
victory we must hnvc.
Every means possible should bo
brought to bear upon the three, men
first in rank to induce them to relin
quish their first choice nnd stand by
the University of Nebraska in its
great fight against its southern rival.
FRATERNITY HASE BALL LEAGUE.
The inter fraternity base ball league
is at last an accomplished fact Tues
day morning representatives from the
different fraternities met and perfect
ed an organization. All the fraterni

At the meeting n committee of two
consisting of Art narmon nnd C. L.
Spencer were appointed to arrange a
schedule and to attend to any other
preliminary business in connection
with tlie establishment of the new
