Mr. C. E. Tingley bus an article in this issue
which it will be worth your while to read carefully.
Professor Micks' many friends will learn with
rtgret that he is to sever his connection with the
university. Professor Hicks has been with the
university for several years and has been a consci
entious worker in I is department. He has made
many friends among the students and in the city.
We wish him abundant success in whatever field he
may be employed in the future.
President Chas. L. Ingersoll, of the Colorado
university, has been asked to take the chair of agri
culture in the University of Nebraska. President
Ingersoll is a graduate of the Michigan university,
has since been president of the agricultural college at
Perdu, and is eminently fitted both by education and
by practical experience to fill the position he is
invited to by our board of regents.
The interest in college oratory is growing rap
idly. Several special prizes are now offered by the
different literary societies, and are being contested
for with a vim of no uncertain meaning. This is
eminently proper. Heretofore but little interest has
been shown in oratory until a few weeks before the
state contest. These society contests, together with
our local contest will serve to keep up interest in the
question. Let every society see to it that they are
well represented in the local contest next year, both
in numbers and in talent. The regents and faculty
will do what they can to furnish instruction.. The
association must provide what is lacking.
No regular and sstematic work is being done in
the gymnasium. This "dropping in and taking a
turn when convenient" means that no turn will be
taken. . Supposing history, mathematics, or mili
tary science were taught that way. There should be
by all means regular schedule time for work in the
gymnasium, and this work should be icquired of all
students. As it is now the work is done by fits and
starts and no permanent good can be expected to
result from it. We have the necessary conveniences
for the work; and the regents have authorized the
faculty to put the work on schedule time, and to
make it to a certain degree compulsory. Cannot
something be done in this matter? Surely this work
is of sufficient importance , that the necessary time
may be taken from other college work
