Those students aspiring to positions

recommendations may be accomodat
ed b, u new rule of the faculty. A
committee has Imhmi apHintcl who
upon application will invest ignte the
records of the students and so far as
possible interview the instructors un
der whom the applicant has taken
work. They then correspond directly
with the parties to whom the student,
refers them. This is an excellent
method of securing the best, scholar
ship for the schools of the state, and
an individual or a. school lioard receiv
ing any of our students from this com
mittee may be sure hat they are writ
ten with authority. Hut. as there are
iniuiv qualifications other than intel
lectual attainments, necessary for a
successful teacher the svstem is jkt
eeptibly not infallible. Doubtless,
however, it is an improvement, on tin
former entire !iek of system.
Yes, we are interested in the trou
ble with Spain. We have nearly four
hundred cadets that are drilling three
times a week and most of these are
awaiting a call front the government.
A few would lx too young for serviee
but enough would volunteer, if nec
essary to swell the total to an approx
imate five hundred. Vive hundred
trained men, subject, to marching or
ders on a few hours notice, are a suf
ficient eause for the manifest interest
in the international difllculty.
The unanimity with which all arose
in condemnation of the base insiuuaU
tions of an evening paper shows how
part ,v prejudice can be cast aside when
the occasion demands. Regardless of
political beliefs, populists, democrats,
republicans and mug-mumps vied with
each other in attempts to rent the
clouds with cheers for McKinley.
"We are Americans" was the motto
when we paraded the streets to show
our disgust at the comments of a cer
tain paper. The same motto should
guide us and our nation in the trou-
oie wiui hpam. Ilecatisc we are Am
ericans and because of base trcaeherv
on the part of Spain, our property was
destroyed, our seamen killed, and our
nag hishonored, we are readv to con
tribute to the resentment of the in
sult .ind the upholding of national
The Friday afternoon business meet
ing of the State Oratorical Association
at Crete should convince the I'niver-
sity of Nebraska that she is no longer
a congenial memlier of the. state or
ganiition, if indeed she ever was.
There was in that meeting an evident
and well developed puroso to crowd
us out. From start to finish then was
a studied effort on tho part, of the
other colleges to antagonize our dele
gation at everj- turn and to defeat
ever proposition whatsoever that
seemed to have our support.
With her usual promptness in pub
lic matters, Doane. was on hand with
her customary nestfui of hot schemes,
prepared for her annual rag-c'hewing
prepared Xo turn what might other
wise have been a pleasant and profit
able business meeting into a prolong-
ed jangle flooded with unbearable non
sense. She had poured her chronic
tale of woe into the credulous ears of
lielltue and Grand Island until they
felt a sort of religious infatuation for
vanquishing some uiicircumcised
Philistine. Itut as usual the Philis
tine would not vanquish.
This is no new state- of affairs, how
ever. We have become a customed to
this childishness, this jvunpered dis
trust on the part of small politicians,
this petulant bickering of high school
The proceedings of Friday have but
one explanation. These colleges were
won not able to compete 1 1 li Mr
Denis in, and hence they rcsoited to
that constitutional bubble to shut out
an opponent In whom they recognled
superior ability and attainment. We
are forced to the otherwise superci
lious conclusion that the University Is
too large for the Association. We can
not atVord to handicap ourselves by
keeping at home our Ik's. In order to
match ourselves with second class
schools as the.se colleges confess them
selves to be. The sooner we learn this
and act upon It the better for oratory
In the University and In the state.

To sleep! alas, to wake! Ay, there's
