The Univc tsity of Nebraska Club

there will be a great love feast of Uni
versity people in and around Chicago.

ulty of the University, Ex-Regent

and others will be present. Mr. Har

not mean a poor dinner rather the

no chance' to earn money, and that
there is a general increase of prices in
Paris already. The only safe plan
will be to take enough money to pay
all expenses.

The paper on "Literature of India,"
by Dean A. H. Edgren, Ph. D., of
The University of Nebraska, recently
published in the home study circle
column of the Chicago Record, is of
interest to all lovers of literature, and
should be of interest to all students.
The paper shows that although this
l'terature is very old it reveals some
beautiful sentiment. Tne Hindoo lit
erature, though largely religious and
philosophical, is also in no small de
gree secular. The poems which the
people sang to their gods are good
evidence of their aesthetic spirit.
