The series of games between S. TJ. I. and
U. of N. bsao ball teams promises to be a re
markable series. Arrangements have been
completed for three games, one of which will
certainly bo played in Lincoln. The fact that
the winner of this series is to receive a 850
trophy, offered by Herpolsheimer & Co., will
only make the games more vigorously contested.
Several students of Oberlin have been sus
pended for smoking. The IIehpekian glories
in the porsonal liberty in the government of
the University, but if peddlers, book-agents
and advertisers can be prohibited from the
grounds, why not the cigarette fiend? It may
appear manly to some; it may oven win the
smiles of mnvn of the co-ed to go about the
campus with a pipe in ono'd m uth but, act
ually, by some, it is not considered the highest
mark of intelligence.
Acting-Librarian Eppes' little talk in the
library on Tuesday morning was a start in the
right direction. We hope that the' librarian
means business. Already too much time has
been lost by genuine students whoso work
lias been broken into by the childish gossip of
a fe,w whose home training has been neglected.
All must realize that, in this University state,
there are special privileges for none. There
must be one law for all and one obedience
from all. The sooner the disturbers of the
peace are weeded out the better.
Petitions in favor of, and petitions opposed
to, the annexation of Hawaii are being circu
lated this week. It is a surprising and a la
mentable fact that som3 students sign the3e
petitions regardless of what they believe on
the subject; a few going so far as to sign both
for and against. A petition is circulated for
a purpose. It should never be signed "just
to get rid of the fellow carrying it." The
right of petition is sacred, and if properly
used may be an efficient power in legislation.
When a University student signs a petition it
should mean something. He should believe
what he says ho believes.
Dr. Draper spoke truly when ho lauded
the State Univeraity of toiiy as the developer
of the natural talents of young Americans.
The prime virtue of the State University lies
in its freedom freedom of thought, of action.
Every man in it is his own master and must,
to a great extent, solve there the plans of his
future life. True, this very freedom is a det
riment to some who are deficient in will power
or energy but such as they had better never
gone to college at all. Better for them had
they followed the plow on their father's farm
or kept his books in the country store. Such
as they were made to follow not to lead. Even
tho church school with its many restrictions
cannot help them. It may develop their
deceit and hypocrisy but it cannot develop
what they do not have genuine manhood.
H. P. Lau was promoted to 3rd sargeant of
Co. A last Wednesday night.
Frank Raine was promoted from 3rd sar
geant of Co. A to 1st sargeant of Co. B, to
take the place of Jim Fechet resigned.
