We know our ideas are narrow, Our utility systems are rude, For exploring a system our systems Are distressingly narrow and rude; We arc thankful that "Chapel is better This year than ever before," Ant we fear that with much more improvement To a place cxcourprrlu 'twill soar. ; Then we'll reach the acme of culture Of which some fair sisters are proud. I suppose 'tis a proof of advancement That for chapel is weaving its shroud. Yet I lind that my soul is repining As drops in a cage a poor pigeon, I'Vr it still hopes to lind in the chapel A trace of its old time religion. So our hearts are stilt longing and hoping For some good old-fashioned devotion, Of the brand that our mothers wore famed for, Not fixed up by newfangled notions. We'll accept the account of creation, Or the story of Eve and the apple, But, O Lord, we beseech thee to spare us From a "poly i'on" prayer in the chapel. The university is forging to the front in development of force in debate. Wo are glad to announce the formation of a new club, known as the "Webster and Hayne Debating Club." This organiza tion is but the continuance of a similar one in the Lincoln High School. A few days ago a worthy Pall, while listening to the echo of his own voico as ho practiced his masterly oration, was surprised by the Chancellor and sovoral visiting legislators. They were so im pressed with the young mini's eloquence that no amount of pleading excused him and ho was compelled to make a speech. The result has not been made known, but the next legislature will undoubtedly have a university student from Falls City.
