The critic at Union hall last Friday nrght, looking at the
freshman girls, who during the entire program had been bus
ily makirg the nobby freshman caps for the cane rush, said:
"The Carthaginian women who plaited their hair into bow
strings, if compared with the freshman girls, arc nowhere."
Last Sunday Mr. Kingman spoke in the chapel to the
young men and women of the Christian associations. He
made prominent the fact that man's life is most useful when
his work is what and where God wishes it. lie followed his
short address with a brief description of the superstitions and

James Lunn was just about to smash the burly policeman,
and the policeman was wondering whether he had better use
his "billy" or his heels when Talmagc, stepping between
them, and roaring in terrific tones, bade his "copship" to
stand back. The wiclder of the 'billy" thought "disccn
lion to be the better part of valor" and stepped back. He wil
never again try to drive from a freight house a howling mob

Deputation work has been started among the college
christian associations of the state. Each college association

Thursday evening, Mr. Obcrlics, president of the class of
'95, recklessly put his home at the disposal of the freshmen.
It was a hilarious crowd. They sang, "The freshmen on the
bank and the sohpomorcs in the pool!" and all the rest of the
songs in no gentle accent. They laughed, talked, played
cards, and feasted (You should have seen Haughton and the
cake!). The toasts, "Cane rush," "Frchman Girls," "Our
President," were handsomely responded to. The sophs did
not show up, although the freshies looked for them with cagei
The state historical library is opened on Monday and
Wednesday and Friday afternoons from 2 to 5 r. M. The
library contains 4,538 volumes of which number 126 have
been procured since September 10. Nearly all the docu
ments relating to early colonial history may be found in this
library. Nearly everything printed that pertains to Nebraska
is contained within its alcoves. A newspaper department has
recently been added and many of the leading papers of the
state are placed on file. They will probably be bound and
preserved for future generatious. The secretary is very desir
ous oi obtaining every book, pamphlet, or article that appears,
which in any way treats of Nebraska. Contributions will be
Last year the signs pointed to the total extinction of that
terrible and useless ordeal, the final examinations. Now,
however, the evil Is upon us worse than ever. It seems that
last year's idea of doing away with the examinations was not
out of regard for the students, but to save the expense of
examination paper. At any rale we now not only must take
the examinations but we must furnish all the paper, and have
good enough any imrc. Double glossed pap:r must bs used.
We also understand that these books arc to be forever pre
served, stored away in the archives of the university. Just
why this is so , no one seems to know. Six hundred students
will use some four thousand of these books each term, and to
the tax payer it looks as though the time is not far distant
when a new building will have to be erected to preserve fo
posterity the genu of thought that have forever, heretofore
passed into the fire merely as examination paper.
Last Thursdxy the jaiior class m:t tod;:id: wjjthr it
should publish a class annuil. Professor H irbour, th; pro
poser and advo:ator of the nr.v cutcrpriss, w.is present to
explain to the class what an annuil is and whit is necessity
to publish it. When the class had qnizzsd Professor IJ.irbour
and had examined Yale, Harvard, and Iowa City collcg:
annuals as samples, it decided by unanimous vote to publish
an annual during the present year. In order to g:t to work
at the earliest moment the class proceeded at once to elect a
board of editors. Messrs. H.irdy and Mirlcy were chosen
editors in chief. Messrs. Stroman, Johnson, ILirber, and
Pizcy, and Misses Upton and Gray were elected associate edi
tors. The editors were empowered to choose two business
managers, and chose Mr. Wing as one of thcii:. An annual
is a regular publication in every first rank college in the cast.
It is an evidence of college spirit, enterprise, and ability.
Such a publication in this institution, while it will give a
little glory to the junior class, will do more than any one
college enterprise to advertise the university, to foster college
organizations, and to direct the overflow of college spirit into
