the barbarian cause only last spring, said: "I
consider that a debating club a do more for
a student than any other organization, except
theY. M. C. A." Tn the language of the
street he would have said: "These fraternities
are not what they are cracked up to be."
This should serve as a warning note to any

is by no means a stranger to Lincoln music
circles. At the recital last week Mrs. Jones

In justification of the existence of college
fraternities, our esteemed contemporary quotes
an eastern publication to the effect that col

themselves, but for the University school of
music. They are welcome and valuable ad

The law department of the University
