Our University is for "Academic Freedom:"
We believe in the widest liberty of thought
and the fullest investigation of all subjects.
Wo want professors who have opinions and
not characterless non-entities. Willi the.
staunehest of opinions we likewise desire the
utmost liberality of discussion. We warn
the small-bore politicians of all sorts to keep
hands off; wo will have none of their knavish
pettifogging and contemptible narrowness.
Nebraska is too big a state; the State Univer
sity is too big an institution to be pestered by
the insignificant littleness of petty partisans.
This organization is full of vim; its atten
dance is large, its membership mature and of
good quality. This year promises to bring
forth no factional ditl'erences and the notoriety
Alumni gained last year must give way to a record of
Business Manager substantial achievement in the coining months.
Here are men of more years than in other de
partments; their experience is wider, and
views broader. A fair set of oll'uvrs have
been chosen and under linn guidance and
ellicient presiding officers, the Hcsi'KitiAX
knows of no reason why this club should not,
rank with the strongest in tlu institution.
Th j future of the club is in its ir.uml ev; they
