The university is so fortunate, this
yvar, as to have in prospect two an.
minis, the Senior clnss book and the
flfuh volume of the Sombrero. TJiOhe
in charge of both nre apparently very
active and the indications arc that both
will be thoroughly representative and
creditable volumes. A kindly rccep.
tion should be necorded them, for they
nre enterprises well worthy the sup.
port of every one.
The local oratorical contest will 'be
held in the chapel next Friday night.
This Is a really important event and
merits the hearty support of every
student. It is important because it
is at this tlnu that the university's
representative to the stnte contest
will be chosen. It is important thnt we
should have an especially strong man
this year because the winner of tflic
state contest will represent Nebraska
in the intern to vcoivt est to be held in
Lincoln this year. Do not fall to make
your plans so thnt you enn be present
next Friday evening to encourage
those who are striving for oratorical
A IHtlp more hard work on the part
of some of those, who nre interested
In n thirties, would not be amiss. The
debt standing agninst tho athletic
board will not rnlse Itself, nor will stu.
dents be likely to hunt up some caper
person, with whom to record a sub.
scription. Something should be done.
If n mass meeting is not feasible, at
least an organized canvass of the stu.
dents should be made. Let twenty
young men, who are rustlers be got.
ten together, with some one as lend,
ing spirit among the twenty, and that
little debt can be raised In n week. The
Nebrnsknn will not believe there aro
not patriotic students enough, willing
to give fin cents or one dollar each, to
pay off this apparently everlasting
Harvard University hns established
n system of retiring allowances for
those professors, who have reached a
certain age in the service of the col.
lege. This is certainly a step in the
right direction. It is only justice to
thc-c, who liave spent the lxjst years
of their lives in the service of an lnti
tution, and usually most unselfishly,
tint their old age should be provided
for. Men of such abilities ennnot well
nlVord to run the risk of some day V.
ing left with their families unprovld.
ed for, when had they turned their at.
tention to business, they could have
accumulated a fortune, perhaps. It is
to be hoped thnt other institutions
will find it possible to follow the ex.
ample of Harvard.
SCHOOL OF MUSIC.
(Truce lleynolds and Joinv Martin
have accepted an invitation to sing at
an entertainment in Peru next week.
ilohn Randolph read a apcr before
the Folk Lore society on "Negro Songs
and Traditions," at its last meeting.
The society is a newly organized itf.
fair but will soon be united with the
national society of that mimic. Dean
lOdgrou is the leader nuid it promises
to be a success.
The stringed quartet has returned
from the Black Hills and reports a
great success. Tho people were much
! interested In music and have a high
opinion of the work in the school or
music. In one or two places standing
room room was at a premium.
The lllec club also which is the pride
of most universities was heard wlt'h
much pleasure on Charter day. In
many of the eastern Institutions it la
encouraged and maintained by tho
funds from Hie alumni and other
friends of the university, while hare
it lias received no support except such
(is has been secured from the members
themselves or from the director of the
School of Music.
It Is a remarkable fact that two of
the six or seven greatest pianist in
tli? world have visited Lincoln! hlssea
son. Madam Furinic ltloomilcld Zclsler
whom the world of music has feted
and cheered with deafening applause
for years was here about a month ago,
and not long ago Teresa Carreno
came, who for the past twenty years
lias been in the forefront of pianists
of the world and who still retains her
iofty place as one of tnc greatest in.
I terpreters of compositions of the
! masters who has ever lived. Surely
Lincoln should be proud of this fact
and it is evidence that it is fast becom.
ing a musical center.

PLAGIARISM IN IOWA.
Students of the University of Iowa
are worked up over a charge of pla:i.
arism in the school. The Vidctte.lle.
porter of February has the following:
"Members of the literary societies
have been much excited over a charge
of plagiarism on one of the orations in
the contest. It is a grave charge and
it Is to be hoped that it is not true.
The unpleasantness began when a
couple of members of the executive
committee refused to allow the mat.
ter to be submitted to the President
according to the rules of the Const!.
tutlon. Hut rather than have the suu.
ject Inld before the student body, the
committee has finally re considered
the subject. This seems the only satis,
factory thing to do, for It gives the
accused an opportunity of clearing
bimsclf. This is the first time that
such a charge has been made in many
years, and we hope, for the sake of
the man and for the university, that
a verdict of "not guilty" may be ren.
Kansas has had her state oratorlcil
content and hns chosen Northrop of

the Kansas Unlvcis'ty Weekly th.T
was rivalry of the most atrocious sort
It Is usually expected that men, who
play foot ball, will come out of hanl
games with some bruises. But usually
the spectators are safe. From this
Kansas oratorical contest, howevet
one mnn, not a contestant, returned
with "a deep gash in his bend." Tin
Kansas University is said to have
"fought a good fight ngnlnst the
combined hosts of Methodists from B.
U. and Bnptlsts from 0. N. nsslsted by
bootblncks, policemen, draymen ind

returned home on a same train and
