In this work the iissoclatlon has Ml
the great need existing for a univer
sity Inllrinary.
The music committee, under t'he d'i
rcctlon of A. T. llubbell, has provided
music on all special occasions, as well
as looked after the singing at flic reg
ular Sunday devotional meeting. Thin
dopiirl'incntH has aided1 materially In
milking the Kcrvlees of the association
nttnietilve. John Doug'licrty. (Mark
Obcrlles and the 'IVlyn quartette arc
deserving of mention for special ser
vice rendered I lie association till rough
this department.
The association has done rather ex
tensile advertising thK year and
found it to'lune been of great benellt
to the work. Some wOicrcIn the re
goln of $5 'has been expended In pio
grams, limitations, annoiin'ccincnts
and dodg-ers. llesldPH this, quite u lit
tle work has been done on the type
writer and mimeograph. Y. (5. llilt
ncr 1ms looked after tlhts part of tlhe
advertising. The elTlcacy of tlhls de
partment has been much increased by
the use of a large bliick'board. In fact
this form of advertising" has lieeome so
popular that t'he board has licen in
constant demand 'by oUun; university
organizations. .1. V. Sloltz has done
good falt'hful work "along this line.
This Is just a new department In the
association, but iilrcady its polhll
ities for usefulness to the student
1ody in general 'hiis b,,,,i dtnrMistral
cd. ' A fuller account .f tihl work ap
pears clsewliere in this number.
Id was not without a good deal of
hesitation and forethought that the
association dwided to take Mie ad
vance step of securing' a general sec
retary to superintend Its work. The
need for sonic one to devote his time,
giving more Minn the president or any
member could and also carry his reg
ular school work, wo.s plainly evi
dent. The pre! 1 nil nary plans of the
cabln't were brought to some de
gree of delinllencs-. at tlie visit of C.
C. 'MiChciier hist. May. and a little later
the association vo'ed unanimously to
employ a genral secretary. .Tolin S.
Moore was secured for this office.
While the new feature is sti.l pretty
much of an cvperlinent, yet there i
not the slightest doubt existing Imt
that. 'It has licen a most pronounepil
success and money well expended. The attained tliroui!'h the labors
and faithful work of Mr. Moore has
placed the as-oeiation among the
most successful of any In tlhe leading
colleges and universities in the laud.
For the first time in the history of
tlie association it lias secured u 1oartl
of directors ito oversee the entire work.
The hoard consists of stuoents, mem
bers of the faculty and oltizens of
Lincoln. At present the following
gentlemen, beldes the regular asso
ciation officers: JSootyc, Marsh, Doyle,
and Allen are serving; Dr. Henry
Waul and ..illnin W. Hasting, of tho
faculty, and Clark Obcrlles ami lir.
II. i. Paine, cttlzciu. Hoard meetings
are held once a moutn.
CONCI.l ....
In concluding tills report we feel it
but justice to the association to state,
that its work would undoiihtedly have
been greater and further-reaching had
It not ttulVered greatly the loss of
some of its staiinclicst workers und
truest friend, hy enlistment in the
United States army. It Is with pride
and gratification, however, that we
note the prominent part "our soldiers"
hnve taken In Ohrlstlaii' work In the
army camps'. We have a., labored
faitflifully and earnestly, ami God has
blojwed our efforts.
Itospect fully submitted.
