Phi Gamma Delta gave a delightful
afternoon dancing party Saturday at
Walsh's hall. These daylight parties
have been very popular with the east
ern fraternities and It would seem that
they will take well in Nebraska, judg
ing from the Delta party. The parlors
and hall were decorated with frater
nity banners and the royal purple of
the fraternity. Mr. and Mrs. Crancer,
Professor and Mrs. Maggl and Mrs.
Gates chaperoned the party.
The members of the Palladian,
Union and Dellan literary societies as
sembled In Walsh hall Friday evening
for their annual union party. The
care and worry of examinations were
over and the members made this an oc
casion to relieve their minds from the
strain they had undergone during the
last month. ' Throughout the rooms
stands were arranged, upon which
games of different sorts were found. In
the dancing hall an orchestra dis
pensed music, which mingled pleas
antly with the-joyful voices, and those
so inclined Indulged in the pleasures
of the waltz and two-step. Various
other amusements were planned by
the committee on entertainment, to
whom much credit is due for their ad
mirable work. Acting Chancellor Bes
sey and wife, Professor Caldwell and
wife, Mr. H. H. Wilson and Mrs. Wil
son, dean of women, were guests of the
Ignace Jan Paderewakl, Indeed, is by

Pole, and Poland is the Nlobe of the

Is tho mocking tradition of a brilliant
but Irrevocable past, and the Iron of
vassalage has entered Into Uiolr very

clouded by sore bereavement, by a long
struggle for baro existence, nau ni
Intellectual equipment been less, his
emotionalism might have taken a mor
bid trend; by this saving grace it ha
developed a spiritual aloofness from
the spurious realities of life, a vivid
insight Into Its Inner mysteries.
It Is this quality, not elsewhere dis
cernible, which I concelvo is the secret
of tho extraordinary fascination that
Paderowskl exercises over an audi

of fact, Paderewsu- is singularly free
from pose or other affectation. He
does not throw "nods and becks and
wreathed smiles" at his audience like
the "great Choplnzee," nor cast him
self into a fine frenzy on tho platform
like Sauer or Rosenthal. Even his
much ridiculed "aureole," like Mr.
Gladstone's collars, is mainly the crea
tion of tho caricaturist. That some
times tho hero-worship of his admirers
has taken an hysterical and very ludi
crous form when, as Punch has It, "all
tho ladies in dabbling dresses weep
and gasp and shriek out 'dlvvine,' " is,
I am quite sure, as distasteful to him
as to his critics. Nor can It be argued
that It Is simply the perfection of his
technique that draws the crowd. Vir
tuosity is common enough today; and.
although his technique Is undoubtedly
superb, it is not of the character which
Impresses the multitude. At no time
did he arrest attention by digital agil
ity or merely dynamic effects. Digital
facility ho has cultivated, but only as
a means to obtaining a pure singing
tone and absolute control of tone-color
under all conditions.
TO GET ORATORS.
Committees have been appointed by
the literary societies to secure a regis
tration of contestants for the prelim
inary oratorical contests. The con
tests are open to all university stu
dents, and the Pailadian and Delian
societies each offer a first prize of $10
and a second prize of $5 to the win
ners. The Union society has no stand
ing prize, but expects to make a sim
ilar offer or an equivalent. Those wish
ing to enter should see the chairmen
of the several committees at once.
They are: W. J. Hunting of the Palla
dians, 0. A. Davis of the Delians and
E. W. Meier of the Unions.

Pneumonia is one of the most dan
gerous and fatal diseases. It always
results from a cold. Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy will quickly cure a cold
and perhaps prevent an attack of pneu
monia. It is, In fact, made especially
for that ailment and has become fa
mous for Its cures over a large part of
the civilized world. It counteracts any
tendency of a cold toward pneumonia.
