UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA.
LINCOLN, NEBRASKA, SEPTEMBER 24, 1!)7
A breath of the idle summer.
The tinge of a light romance '
For ships that meet mid-oeean
Salute on the lone expanse.
But the trifling heart may languish
Though sundered the ties that were.
By years, dull years and distance,
Tonight, I am thinking of her.
A violet here, a red rose there.
A blooming garden yonder
But flowers are easy enough to blight;
"What though the days grow fonder?
The cold moonlight through (he latticed porch
Swift words, set lips, a blurr
But out in the world's own darkness
Still I am thinking of her.
And whether 1 tread the tropic glades
Where constant summer bides,
Or whether amid the Thousand Isles
My shallop noiseless glides,
Or whether I lose myself among
The pine and tow'ring fir
Or whether I wake or whether I sleep.
T am thinking and dreaming of her.

Inspector Crahtrci, after reading the IIi
I'Ekiax article on 'Society or Fraternity?"
said: "I always advise new students to stay
out of fraternities their first year at the uni
versity at least. Jn the first place students
just entering aiv not prepared to decide
whether it is advisable to belong to a
fraternity at all. Then there is a great
difference in these fraternities. It would be
much better for the young man to remain out
of the university than to become a member of
some of these. But these worst ones are the
ones that work the new students the hardest.
"If the new student desires to enter a fra
ternity, he ought to take a year to determine
which one he will ciiter. I have tried to start
a movement in the fraternities against initiat
ing students during their first year at 1'ie
university, and I believe one of them has con
sidered the advisability of such action. T be
lieve it would be a good thing for the student,
the fraternity and the university if students
could not enter a fraternity during their first
year in the university. I have thought some
of suggesting this to members of the faculty."

The university is fortunate this vear in get
ting from the large number of new arrivals
from Beatrice a male quartet. It is composed
of four of the finest young men of Beatrice:
Maynard Swart,, Ben LaSelle. Lewis Stringer
and Claude Heed. Their singing at the county
teachers' association last Saturday attracted
considerable attention in university circles.
Prof. Kimball is highly pleased with their
singing and will give the boys special training
during the year.
Supt. W. II. Skinner of Nebraska City has
put out a book, "Studies in Literature."
which promises to revolutionize the teaching
of English in the west. He has simply pre
pared a book which gives the high schools
some of Dr. Sherman. The book is going
into use rapidly, not only in Nebraska but in
all parts of the west.
Mr. Earl Wehn of Beatrice played two
pieces on the cornet and two on the piano at
the Union society last Friday evening. His
playing at once attracted attention. Besides
having unusual natural talent, Mr. Wehn has
studied music in the leading conservatories in
California. He has entered the conservatory
of music here for special work. The univer
sity is prou.d of Mr. Wehn.
Kev. Dunning, pastor of the Second Pres
byterian church of this city, led chapel exer
