Manager Tukoy announces that Ne
braska will play the University of
Minnesota in Lincoln on Thanksgiv
ing day thlB year. While Minnesota
lias not yet signed the contract, she
has written her acceptance to our
proposition and the matter is practi
cally settled. This will change the
loot-ball outlook materially. With the
hardest game of the year at the last
of the season, and on the home
.grounds, a vast amount of enthusiasm
should bo worked for the occasion.
The editors of the Nebraskan-Hes-perian
wish to announce that here
after the paper will appear on Wed
nesday. This is done in order to allow
the news gathered by the Tuesday
journalism class to appear in the pa
per of the week In which it is gathered.
It is rather hard to tell whether
KanBas can play basket-ball or not.
After tho overwhelming dofeat re--celved
here, the team went to Omaha
and on tho following evening defeated
the Omaha Y. M. C. A. Either our
team has improved wonderfully slnco
the Omaha team played here or the
KanBans took a decided brace in the
twenty-four hours that intervened be
tween the games.
Over In the University of Iowa, they
sro rejoicing becauso the legislature
save them all they asked for. We
would like to go to Iowa for awhile.
The Idler thinks that something
ought to be done. When a class of
green, over-grown freshman can come
In and show a lot of erratic sopho
mores how they ought to conduct a
class mooting on religious principles
and not indulge in personalities that
muko your hair turn grey and your
foot cold, it is time to have a mass
mooting and think it ovor audibly.
Of course if tho sophomores want to
run a grown-up museum and show off
their men with rubbur nocks and cast
iron Jaws, and forty-nine cont store
teeth, i is another thing. On the
other hand, thoy can't very woll do
this and keep a stand In with the
chancellor, who insists that all side
shows in the chapol shall be strictly
moral and of high grade character.
But several freshmen went Into tho
same chapel the other day, rubbed
their hnir, bit off a few extra chews of
Kios-me and when they got through
they had more officers and everything
else .than they knew what to do with
and havo been wonuering ever since
how thoy over did it.
But speaking of sophomores and
electing freshman officers reminds
the Idler of whut the manager of the
paper told him the other day. Ho
said that he had a string of sopho
mores about a mlio long down nt the
office last week after the paper came
out. It didn't seem to make much
difference which side they were on as
they wore all determined to kick on
what the Nebraskan-Hesporlan had so
truthfully and curefully delluiatod
about them. And each one wanted to
fight and he had to invite them sepa
rately out into the hall and carefully
explain to them that man was few in
a hUl and small potatoes and born of
women and equally as liable to orr
about Gophomores as some girls are to
air about the campiiB without their
hats on. Anyway if thoy did not fight
according to Marquis of Quoonsbury
rules, It couldn't bo expected that the
sporting editor could pick out the fine
points about tho scrap anyway.
But now things begin to look
brlghtor and wo can see prospects for
at least three or four junior annuals
next year, and a little furthor on, see
severnl business managers of said
Junior nnnualB, wearing patches on
the knees of their trousers and an old
coat that mothor sent In from tho
farm that father hod out grown a
few years ago, In a vain attempt to
pay for tho books and still have
plunks enough to carry thom through
school. Of course if plunkB wore
flunks they would have a superabund
ance. For junior annualB are much
work and poor pay at best. Worse
than all this, however, Is the trouble
brought on to the disinterested Btud
ont body that sits back and tries to
look wise and be non-partisan. When
several of the newly elected business
managers appear and pull out a roll
of paper and request you to take a
book to help out a good cauBe, you
begin to wonder what a good cause is.
And thereafter when you see one com
ing you dodge as if he had hin pockets
full of frozen potatoes. If he catches
you, we would suggest that you make
a dute with him in the gymnasium,
then get there a little early and when
ho comes through ine door, drop an
ax or u dumb bell on his magnus
nity to hear his classmates toll of his
earlier days.1 It was not until then
that thoy began to realize that their
acquaintance was meager indeed.
His kindness, love for humanity, and
his constant struggle for its elevation
was never more clearly brought out.
The statements came from those who
know him best, and can be prized accordingly.
Several changes are announced in
tho board of editors this week. We
deBiro that professors and students
familiarize themselves with this list
and when thoy know of anything In
teresting that is liable to be missed,
Tiand It to one of these persons. In
this way It will be possible to add
greatly to tho Interest of the papor
and mako It still more truly a repre
sentative of tho university.
"We are glad to call the attention
of the students to our Pennsylvania
lottor in this week's issue. It Is full
of Interesting facts concerning east
ern college life and every student can
read It with profit. Mr. Alexander is
well able to compare tho student body
there with Nebraska as bis undor
graduate days were spent hero.
No student was present at the me
morial services Friday who was not
touched deeply by the occasion. Many
"Lad thought that they know Dr. War
ner well, until thoy had tho opportu-
The all-year-session is a plan which
provides that tho university shall bo
open to students throughout the year,
'i hero will be four terms of twelve
weeks each, with a weok's vacation
between each term, and studies will
be so arranged that thoy can bo taken
up with profit at the beginning of
This system has interested the uni
versity authorities for some time, and
has been considered from a stand
point of economy and expediency. It
now deserves serious consideration on
tho part of students. In what way
will this plan benefit the Btudont?
Undoi this system ono may attend
school all tho year, three terms, two
terms or only one term, according to
his strength and means, If a student
studies the whole year, ho could thus
graduate In three years Instead of
four as Is now the case. But tho op
poneuts of this system say that this
will have a tendency to encourage
students to overwork and breakdown
thoir health for the sake of finishing
In three yearB, However, it is not
probable that any but the strongest
will attempt to curry work for tho
full time. Moreover, wo find peoplo In
other lines of work, such as mer
chants, book-keepers, thoso who fol
low professions, and othors, who con
tinue to labor all tho year, In tho sum
mer aB woll as In tho winter. Why
cannot the student continue his labors
tho whole year?
Ono of the greatest bonofits to be
derived from this system is found in
tho fact that tho work offered In one
torm is repeated in another, so that
ii a student by illness or for any
reason is obliged to leave school In
tho mlddlo of a torm ho does not
thoroby lose practically all the year's
work as 1b sometimes the case under
the plan now In operation. But he
can resume his work at tho beginning
of tho next torm, nnd thus the Inter
ruption Is not as serious as it proves
1)0 to undor the present system.
Tho "all-year-plan" is now In oper
ation nt tho University of Chicago und
also at the University of West "Vir
ginia, and has given satisfaction to
both professors and students, who say
thoy would not wish to return to tho
old system. Student.
