There is nothing that will foster n true atholtio
spirit quicker than a vigorous class rivalry in col
lege games. The class football league last fall gave
birth to somo hearty enthusiasm and tho base-ball
tournament now in progress seems fully as produc
tive of interest.
The time has come when tho university needs more
open literary societies. Tliere are enough studouts
in tho uuiversity, besides those who beloug to frator-
nities, to support live or six such. The outlooK seems
good for nearly two thousands sttuhuts noxt year
and with this increase will come a greater uemaud
for tho open society .

college annuals and deserves tho hearty support of
every univcrdity student.

Tho difliculty of our representatives in tho Kansas
Nebraska debate to arrange tho order in which they
should spoak, has boon tho subject of no little dis
cussion the past week. Iu fact matters looked ser
ious for awhile. But as suggested in tho Hkspeman
of last weok a compromise has been olTectod and tho
matter definitely settled. Mr. Groon will lead, Mr,
Donison will spoak second, Mr. Baker, thud Mr.
Baker will also havo n closing speech. Tho univer
sity, this year, probably has tho strongest represen
tatives it has ever had in any Kansas dobato It is
to bo hoped thoy will work together not only In
order to do justlco to themselves but for tho honor
of tho university
Thero is undoubtedly qulto a difference between
eastern ami western students but each class has pur
haps excellences which the other has not. Iu tho
cast, because of many generations of easy circum
stances and culture an ability nnd taste for scholarly
attainment is inhorited. This with tho access to
gooil libraries gives tho eastern youth an earlier ac
quaintance with a literary lifo. On the other hand,
tho young man or woman of the west, generally in
meager circumstances early learns tho necessity of
plauning for tho business part of lifo To do this
one must havo his wits about him and thus we linil
tho western studout quick to concievu plans and
eq mlly able to o trry them out. Western college stu
dents havo a vim and power of pouotration common
to themselves and although not as polished as thoso
in the east, are quite as proficient in original investigation.
