The Nebraskan, a paper published at
the Stale University, prin d last week a
page containing the entire contents of
'The Hesperian" another and a rival
publication at the university. It is inti
mated on another page that the excerpt
is printed in derision, but to the unbiased
reader that particular page which, hap
pens to be the fourth, contains the only
matter of any literary merit in the paper.
The poem signed by Annie Prey and en
titled "Hachel," is sensuous, simple, and
full of poetic feeling. The criticism on
Kipling's "Captains Courageous' shows
critical acumen and is very interesting.
The rest of .he page is made up of coll
ege news and witticisms. The other
three pages contain dreary,commonplaces
sweetened with a self complacency and
self consiousness that would nauseate
everybody but the partizan readers of a
college paper. The Hesperian, on the
contrary, shows no traces of such crude-'
ness. If the page reprinted bjT the Ne
braskan is a fair sample of its issues the
latter paper should study it with humil
ity that might improve its style. Lin
