Iast Saturday morning the students were
formally welcomed to the university, when
the Chancellor gave his annual opening ad
dress. In a few well chosen remarks the
Chancellor welcomed the students on behalf
of the members of the faculty and then gave
some advice as to the conduct of all students.
He urged upon all the fulfilment of the bond
which binds us together as an institution, the
bond of honor. Honor is the watch word of
the university, the motto of every student.
He urged loyalty to our University, to our
professors and to our work.
The change in the order of chapel exercises
is most acceptable, and makes them much
more attractive and impressive than they
were ever before. As usual the students gave
vent to their enthusiasm by clapping as the
different members of the faculty entered at
the new stage entrance. The exercises were
closed with the college yell, given with a
spirit characteristic of the Nebraska students.

A certain university publication which, but
last year, aspired to be the "official organ"
of the university, announced last week that
Prof. Howard was here to take post work in
American history under Prof. Caldwell. We
do not give the following solely for the bene
fit of the staflT of that paper, for it is possible
it will be of interest to preparatory students
snd wiinc of our ea tfern exchanges.

normal with the class of "71. He entered the
University in 1872 and graduated in 187(5.
He went to Europe and studied at Munich
university for two years. He returned to
America in 1878 and began teaching history
here in the university. In 1891 he was called
to the head of the history department in Ice
land Stanford university. He, is now away
from there on leave of absence. Leland Stan
ford has a systein that every seven years it

provided he study. Prof; Howard is writing
a book of two volumes on the. "History of
Marriage." He will use the library here for
