The Former Huslc Department of the University.
To Mr. and Mrs. Menzendorf belongs the
credit of building up and creating the music de
partment of the University.
Nine years ago the late Mrs. Menzendorf com
menced her work with a class of five pupils. Two
years later Mr. Menzendorf commenced his work
in the University, and in connection with his
private work organized the University orchestra,
which has made remarkable progress and has
been a credit to the University.
The chorus, which grew up from a small num
ber, has become a strong and praiseworthy organ
ization. The chorus and orchestra separately
and combined under the careful and thorough
drill of Mr. Menzendorf have been, enabled to
render music of the highest order, and the musical
people of Lincoln have learned to look forward
, to the concerts and recitals of the music depart
ment with much pleasure.
Through all these years, while the different de
partments of the University received the aid and
support of the authorities, the music department
was left without assistance or encouragement,, to
struggle along the best it could.
Yet, in spite of the discouraging conditions'
under which the instructors have always had to
work, the department has flourished and prosr;
pered and gained a reputation of highest merit..
The success attained by the department is due
entirely to the untiring zeal and efforts of the in-'
structors, whose constant aim it has ' been to ele
vate the standard of music in the University to
the highest possible degree.
Although Mr. Menzendorf has severed his con
nection with the University he will continue to
give private instruction in piano, violin, viola,
cello, harmony and theory. Students desiring
the best and most thorough instruction at a mod
erate price, can make arrangements by calling at
the studio, 1 5 1 2 R street, only three blocks from
the University. t
After two weeks of laboring under difficulties,
the foot-ball team is at last beginning to show
some signs of organization, and, in spite of the
disadvantages which have been met with, the
prospects are that the team will be fully as strong
as it was last year.
The chief trouble is the scarcity of men in
practice. There is abundant material in the
University this year, from which a winning team
could be selected. Yet, half the time there are
not enough men out to form two elevens. As
long as there is nothing for the team to play
against there can be but little improvement.
Those who come out and play on the second'
eleven are entitled to great credit; for it may
almost be said that the second eleven makes the
Another evil is that there are a few men who
think they have a "cinch" on their positions on
the team, and therefore do not come out to prac
tice unless they feel like it. Without any remarks
as to the ability of these men,, if they would stop
to think that their presence is of the greatest im
portance in the development of team work, they
would soon get over the idea that they are too
good to need any practice. Every absence on
the part of a member of the team interferes greatly
