Now that the local contest is over, let us all pin
hand', irrespective of factions, and do everything
possible to help our representative in the State con
test. The local assosociation should take steps, at
once, towards training our orator. In every state
contest, so far, the university has ranked high 0:1
manuscript, but low on delivery. This has always
been our failing. Now is a good time to remedy
this. If we ever expect to send a representative to
an inter-state contest, wc must raise our standard of
delivery. Let no pains or expense be snared that
will bring about this desired change. Let us engage
the best talent in Lincoln to train our orator this year
and see what he can do. Give him training that will
place him on an equality with his competitors, and
the universitv need not fear the result.

The recent orders published by the military
department have given rise to a great deal of dissatis
faction among the cadets. There has been a marked
tendency during the last few years to increase the
work and expense of all students connected with this
department. Until this year, students were compelled
to drill only six terms, ard a term once completed
credited the same as any other study. Now; every
male student, unlets excused for excessive poverty,
or physical inability, must drill nine comsccutive
terms. In other words, he must drill three out of
the four years of his college coure in order to get a
diploma. In war so imminent in this great commer
cial age thai we must transform our colleges into
military academic? The orders that have caused
the most complaint are those which directly infringe
upon individual rights. These dictatorial orders are:
first, that hereafter no cadet will be allowed to wear
any part of his, uniform when off duty unless he
wears the wholr. Second, that hereafter cadets will
have no choice in the selection of their own iuiu.
'Hie lieutenant and some clothing bouse iniheea.it
will dictate price and quality.
Now, what will be the result of these decrees?

the future it is bound to lesson the attendance to
some extent. Now that we have an excellent gym
