In llic Butler Collegian wc notice nn editorial urging lite

Gules Index is using its best endeavors to show why
Gates College should live. It believes that there should be
two Congregational colleges in Nebraska. There may be
such a need, but it is certainly not a crying need. The crying
need, wc should think, would be for funds for the college
drawing its support front the drouth stricken district of Ne
braska and South Dakota.

considerable space to accounts of fool ball games by the
Dickiiisnnian team. It gives reports of five different games
played within a mouth, in two of which the Dickinson team
won. From reading the accounts a student of the U.of N.
need have no occasion to feci ashamed of out leant. In one
game the score was only 52 to o. If athletics occupied the
minds of the students of the students of DiclJtnson ns much
during November ns they have the Ditkinsonian for that
mouth, recitations must have been a howling success" there
and students a howling vacancy.

To the keen-sighted observer it is quite evident that
America is rapidly drifting towards the goal that marks the
termination of the great republics of antiquity. America
furnishes only another instance of w maxim that: "history
