Stanford University, Cal., Oct. G,
1900. Nobraskan-Hcsporlan Sirs:
Your paper readied mo a few days ago
and it is needless to say that I am
much pleased with It. Your registra
tion number was attractive and well
gotten up. I could easily Imaglno
myself mingling with the throng of
students as thoy moved from table to
toblo and from professor to professor
fixing up their recitation schedules.
A different system of registration pre
vails hero at Stanford. Each student
has a major and a minor study and
consequently a major and minor pro
fessor. It is the business of the pro
fessor to assist tho student in the
preparation of his study card, which Is
afterward filled out and filed with tho
registrar and tho necessary fees paid.
Graduates from accredited institu
tions aro permitted to take all tho
first year subejets in law; and as their
subjects count toward graduation and
the degree of A. B., a studant may con
sider himself either a graduate student
or a senior. Personally, I havo iden
tified myself with the latter aggrega
tion and expect to be in lino for a
sheepskin next June. A thesis of three
thousand words or more will do tho
Tho law department hero in some
what In its infancy yet, but it is mak
ing rapid strides to tho front. Tho
professors without exception aro
either Harvard or Columbia. In
struction is given by means of tho
Case system which was originated by
Prof. Langdell of Harvard and is fol
lowed in most of the first class law
schools of this country.
On entering the university grounds,
ono is immediately struck by tho mag
nificent scale on which things are dono
here. The buildings aro all of stono
and aro finished In hard woods of var
ious kinds. The new chapel which
will bo completed next spring is an
imposing structure and will cost over
ono million dollars.
The dormatory system prevails hero
to a great extent. Enclna Hall is tho
homo of about 300 men. Tho co-eds
Hvo in Rable Hall which will accom
modate about 1C0 students. Besides
these halls there aro a number of
private student enterprises In and
about tho campus. Life in Encina Hall
Is about like that of any dormatory

While the juniors and seniors keep
up the class spirit In tho U. of N., tho
Freshes and Sophs do It here. Tho
first four nights were made hideous by
tho yells of the unlucky Freshies as
they woro plunged into tho cold water
of tho Enclna bath tub. Tho "babies"
havo become organized now and aro
repaying their big brothers with in
terest. They had a scrap on tho cam
pus a week ago that lasted nearly all
night and was only Btopped by tho
interferorxso of tho night watchman.
Stag parties in the club room am
all tho go now. An informal hop will
bo given In honor of tho university
girls next Saturday evening. These
parties nro given ono or two in each
Athletics aro given a prominent
place in student affairs. Football
with Coach Yost at the head is all tho
go now. Yost is very popular horo
and has tho confidence of tho stuoents.
Tho faculty from tho president down
to the lowest assistant will accompany
tho team to San Francisco on Thanks
giving day, when wo meet tho Univer
sity of California on their homo
grounds. For fear of wearying you, I
With best wishes for your success,
I am, sincerely,
