The Hesperian is glad to note the move
ment ' originated by the student body and
joined in by the faculty, for the University
to provide relief, so far as lies in the power
of so poverty stricken an institution, for the
starving citizens of Western Nebraska.
The movement has boon taken up, with
out exception, by the various colleges, and
universities in and around Lincoln, andprom
ises abundant success. The suffering in the
West is something awful; the thought of
women and children lying at the door of
death because of a want of 'the bare necessi
ties of life is certainly enough to move every
student to contribute all the aid he possibly
It is to be sincerely lipped that all who"
have not already given to 'the extent of their '
ability will do so at once.
This, fellow students, is an appeal to the
humanitarianism of the University. Let us
moot it in such a way that we, at least, can
not be accused of parsimony.. Let it never'
be said that the withered and emaciated hand'
of hunger was ever stretched to us in a vain
plea for bread. Lot us meet this doman'd
and meet it nobly. It is much hotter to know
that your quarter will be expended for bread
for a starving mother than to know that it
has gone into the pocket of the next eminent
tragedian or comedian who holds forth at the
Lansing. Stay away from the show, dis
pense, with that now tie, go without your
dinner if you must, but in the name of hu-.
manity, in the name of your solf esteem,
give something to people who are starving.
