and n large majority of Hiic legisla-;
tors. Especially worthy of commend-'
ation n ml remembrance were the ef
forts of the university alumni mem
bers in her behalf. They were always ,
alert and were untiring in their zeal. '
But the University had many nunc
staunch friends in both houses who!
belieed in the University and wmo
not willing to see her crippled by o I
policy of false economy. It is especi-1
ally encouraging to see that there is I
now no one who is opposed to the in
stitution as such, the onl question
causing difference of opinion '.icing
in regard to the amount of money .ic
cessary to keep Nebraska in her pres
ent leading position.
The following taken from ur. edi
torial in the S. V. I. Quill seems to in
dicate that Iowa is likely to KMurn
to her old place In Ulie western int'M'
collegiate toot ball association, from
which she withdrew two ywu ago.
The editor's dates arts somewhat
mixed, inasmuch as Nebraska won the
western pennant in '07, as well .is ')s
However, the sentiment is good and it
is to be hoped thai Iowa will act up in
the advice given and return to her
place in the western league, wlile'i is
rapidly making a place for itself in
the foot ball world:
"Dissatisfied with the treatment re
ceived at the hands of one of the mem
hers of the association, Iowa after
winning the championship in '07, re
fused to remain in the league longer.
At the meeting last year she was asked
to reconsider her action, but tvfused
to do so. We have been grievously
mistreated by Missouri, our relations
with Kansas had not always been
pleasant, and we believed that irnnrs
with the three universities could be re
placed witOi eastern games. Nothing
less than an attempt to mako the
change would satisfy us. But the re
sult lias not been what was so fondly
hoped, instead of playing Missouri
and Kansas, we piny Simpson and Up
per Iowa. After the Chicago game,
which occurs early in October, our
team mils lnt,o a stale of Indifference
until the end of the season brings tho
llrlnnell ami Nebraska games. In that
middle period Interest collapses, team
work and snappy plays arc unheard of,
and too often we play a close or cvei
losing game with a minor Institution
when we might have played stieccsa
fully In a more Important, game.
Prejudice ought not to keep lid from
alliance with the league that will furn
ish good games. If the old wrong
has been or can be righted, the pres
ent proposal ought certainly to be con
sidered in the light of our best Inter
ests." The report of the Inspector .if ac
credited schools, as well as the -itiitls-tics
in the report of the rcglstiur,
iiinki'M It clime that the ureiiai'Otm v
work for the university may be well
I done throughout the stale without the
further continuance of the fragment
ary preparatory work carried ,tl the
university. When the free attendance
high school law was declared uncon
stitutional by the supreme court, the
regents, In order to keep the pathway
for free education open, pertnlttxil he
relics of preparatory work at the uni
versity to continue. They have now
resolved, provided the free attendance
high whool law Is re-enacted, to cut
oil all of this work excepting the be
ginning work In (Ireek, (icruuin, and
French, and the highest work in pre
paratory Latin, the Virgil. These stud
ies will be carried as sub-freshman
pt tidies for those who may enter with
out "conditions" on account of their
coming from schools not yet strong
enough lo maintain these subject.-..
The Inspector's report demonstrites
that In the inspectorship we have one
of the most elllcient means for pre
serving the unity of the school system
anil of making the university to serve.
The old system of inspection by dif

The engagement of Helena Mod
je.ska, vvlio is no doubt, the jrreatost
living exponent of the legitimate
dmnm, has of course aroused a lively
enthusiasm in the minds of those who
love tin' stage for the best and not for
the most trivial that it lias to offer,
lodging by the reports of her engage
ments elsewhere this season and the
local interested anticipation, there are
not likely to be any vacant seats on
her appearance next Thursday, April

managers, with reason no doubt, con
tantiy bemoan the fucu that Shakes
peare spells bankruptcy, and possibly
Madame .Modjeska, who is among the
very few to whom genius mny be truly
ascribed, is the one great exception
which proves the rule. The unique po
sition which Modjeska occupies with
regard to the .stage in America sug
gests giaphicnlly enough a reflection
upon the conditions which surround
her. The constant plaint of Jh. cut
ieally inclined that the modern stage
has been given ovtvr to the trivial and
frivolous, and that the" playgoer him
self is to blame because he will pat
ronize nothing else, is not neeeiNirl
Without venturing it as a positive
fact, it may be that the playgoer is
as much interested in the way the piny
is interpreted, especially as r.eard
'ks pivotal character, as in the play it
self. The dearth-of really go. id ac
tors is itpver so cfinchi-ivel'y d" n n
sirated as on the production of i force
ful and literary drama. This is no
more evidenced in the provincial town?
