LINCOLN, NEBRASKA, MAY i, 1893.
There is much dissatisfaction expressed
regarding the management of tho reception
given to the Ann Arbor students. Tho
complaint is so general, in fact, that The
Hesperian considers it best to mention the
matter. The ground for ill-feeling seems
to bo this: that the students have been sys
tematically excluded from every University
ovont of general interest. While the Uni
versity authorities wore in no way responsi
ble for tho distribution of invitations, still it
is tho general feeling that tho reception
might have heen hold in the armory and
thus have allowed all tho students to attend.
In an affair of that kind it seems to us more
important by far that tho students should be
represented than that invitations should be
lavished upon Lincoln society people.
TJie University of Nebraska unquestion
ably affords splendid opportunities for in
tellectual culture. Tho faculty includes men
of national repute, both as educators and as
scholars; but whore, within the jurisdiction
of the University, can a student obtain the
other essential of a well-rounded education,
namely: social culture? Understand, that
we do not mean by social culture, dexterity
in using ono's pedal extremities or the
auility to emit an endless quantity of vapid
inanities. What wo mean by social culture
is an ease of bearing, a grace and facility of
expression that under all circumstances
stamps a man as a gentleman. Such polish
can be attained only through social inter
course with older and more experienced peo
ple. Wo ask again, whore do our students
find such opportunities ?
