There is probably no sectarian school in Nebraska
whose students, or a large part of whose students, are
so narrow-minded and bigoted as are those of the
Wesleyan university. The students of no other sec
taiian school in the state have so few friends outside
of the little reformatory in which they are confined.
The account that was given of the recent contest,
not only in their sophomoric college organs, but also
the reports that they sent abroad in the Christian
Advocate are fair samples of their angelic utterances.
In all of these school boy reports they attempt to
throw discredit on the state university because the
state students blew the tin horns. They "boil over"
with righteous indignation when they remember that
a Ave cent banner was stolen, or removed; from their
car, an incident that they well know our students
as a whole were in no way responsible for. Yes, my
friends, one of our number, in his enthusiasm, may
so far forget himself as to remove a banner from your
car, but no state student has as yet so far forgotten
himself as to steal an oration from another. Neither
has our institution as yet been so hard up for an ora
tor that our faculty had to induce the winner of a
state contest to go on the second time. No, Chris
tian friends, we may blow "infernal horns" ana be
characterized by such Christian epithets as "low
lived" "hoodlums" "dirty" etc., but we write our
own orations and win our local contests without
"doctoring" the reports of the judges. In sending
out such reports in your papers you do not deceive
anyone who is at all familiar with your methods, but
only make yourselves the more ridiculous if that is
Now for a university debating club. Such an
idea has been dormant in the minds of various
students for some time, but not until lately has thr
idea found expression. Professor Bates has suggested
a pln that will undoubtedly be adopted. It is pro
posed to organize a university debating club, com
posed of the three debating clubs already in exist
ence, and such other members as may be afterwards
admitted. There will be no iron clad provisions,
however, to debar any desirable student from becom
ing a member. Our fraternity brethren will be no
less welcome than members of the open literary soci
eties. The club will probably meet in chapel every
