The Inter-collegiato debates between the
State University and Cotner have proved
very entertaining and instructive to say the
least. The interest that has manifested
itself in the State University is a good sign
for next year when the debate with Kansas
will ocenrr. The Union boys believe in
taking time by the forelock and in preparing
early for the fray. They will doubtless
have a representative in the joint debate
next year. The energy they show now. is
worth regarding. (
Nebraska, weather is the least conducive
to study of any weather in the whole
categroy of weathers. The wind blows in
Nebraska 367 days out of the 365. This
department is totally nnablo to stop the
warm, enervating, south winds from blowing,

every student to disregard it and study just

faculty have begged the Hesperian to re
quest the students to do a little more work
before June. Proving that a simple request
from this paper would cause them to labor
without ceasing. Wo cheerfully grant the
favor to the faculty and hope the request
will have more weight than our protests do
with the south wind. Selah.

rather juvenile to come from one high in
authority, and while his manner toward
many students in the University has been
anything but amiable, he should be treated
with kindness and consideration. There is
no proof at all that Mr. Summers aided Mr.
McMullen in any but the most legiti
mate way, and indeed there is good proof
that he did not. While Mr. Summers has
not been lavish of his courtesy or kindness
toward the student body, wo fesl that we
owe it to the future Attorney General of
Nebraska to make this acknowledgement of
a blunder made in the heat of great excite
ment. Now we talk business. The worst thing
to run a newspaper on is a promise. The
Hesperian is approaching the end of . the
year, when promises from .students have
little monetary value. If there is a student
who is "broke", he is sure to be the one
