jf HE local oratorical contest will be held next
f Saturday night, at which time the University's
representative will be chosen. It has been decided
to charge a small admission fee to defray the neces
sary expenses of the contest. It is to be hoped that
the students and friends of the University will make
up for their previous lack of enthusiasm and come in
such numbers as to encourage the officers of the
association.
dfc GRICULTURAL, horticultural, and bee-keep-(f
ers' associations have held their usual annual
meetings the past month. The members of these
societies, who represent the progressive farmers of
the state, are loud in their praise of the University
for the work the scl ool has been doing. The ac
tions of these progressive farmers indicate that they
appreciate and are in sympathy with the work that is
being done in their behalf by the chemical, botan
ical and zoological departments. The heads of
these departments deserve credit for their efforts to
bring about a close relation between the farm and
the laboratories; a relation that with mutual benefit
could exist.
STHE twenty-second anniversary of the founding
Y of the University of Nebraska will be celebrated
February 15th by a lecture by Dr. Peabody, presi
dent of the Illinois State University. The students
will certainly improve the opportunity of hearing
Dr. Peabody, and give him an aud'.ence worthy of
his ability and reputation as an educator.
The scientific boys are also making arrangements
to celebrate the day by throwing the labratorief. open
to visitors, and making an exhibit of their work.
This exhibit will probably answer for a formal open
ing of Nebraska hall.
