Tho friendly rivalry existing between them acts only as a stimulus to greater exertion. But they should Ije careful lest, in their zeal for new members, they reccivo students who will be neither a benefit to tho so ciety nor themselves. Thero is danger of gelling more material than they can float. Pursuant to call by the executive coinmittco tho ora torical association of the U. of N. met on last Wednesday and, after ordering some work done in ilio way of drafting -a constitution, adjourned till the next day. Then this re markable organization that had sent delegates to a con vention and arranged for a contest before it was theoreti cally born, got itself into cxisto ice, and the treasurer be gan to collect the duet. Warner resigned tho presidency and Will O.Jones was unanimously chosen iu his cloud. Another resignation of Bus., Man. folio wod by another election. The lato conduct of the board of editors was too much for Mr. Foree and he at once resigned. O. B Polk was ininicdia'ely elected to fill tho the vacancy. But before his election he was questioned as to whether ills character could Maud the strain ami whether his rep utation would not suffer from associating with the editors. These questions being properly ans.vered ho was allowed to go forth and prey upon any poor hapless student who is unfortunate enough to have fifty cents. Verily, the way of tho transgressor is hard. So at least the present board of editors have found it. Not sat -isficd with having hunted them out of town, tho associa tion met and parsed resolutions of censure. Mr. llowo made fruitless effoi Is to get back his fifteen cents, and ' Sig". Polk insii-ted between gaps, that "we have a right to the money if we want it"; but all to no purpose, the board still has the possession of the money, and has not yet decided whether it will make a trip around tho world or go to Hie exposition at Now Orleans. The Union girls have organized a giriV auxiliary so ciety which will probably be known by the soubriquet of G. A. S. The mime is significant, but the energy with which the girls have taken hold of the matter would in dicate that something more than gas will bo evolved. Sketches critical, mid analytical, of tho works of some prominent author together with a biographical sketch of his life, will be produced at cacli meeting. In order to vary the performances, each programme will be inter spersed with music. It is tho intention of tho girls to make tho occasion of these meetings a social as well as an intellectual treat. Delegations of students from Doanc, York, Ilaslincs, and the University met, pursuant to call, in the Union nail the 21st ult. for the purpose of organizing the state orator ical association. A temporary organiz ition was effected willi C. G. McMillan In the chair. The convention went, into a committee of the whole for the purpose of prepar ing a constitution. Tho committee having arisen and the constitution adopted, the organization was made perma nent by electing Mr. Braught of York, President; G. W Horton of Dano College, Vice President; and W. E. Johnson, secretary and treasurer. The first contest will be held at Hastings on the third Wednesday of April Each delegation was fully awake to the necessity of en ergetic work for the first contest, and the prospects are that tho coining contest will be one of tho most interest ing events of college life that has yet taken place in Nebraska. Now the unnd boys arc mad. They went to tho Capi tol to serenade the legislature, tho last night of the session, and while playing one of their in i3t hoirl-rondiii; strains, a note, purporting to bo from Church Ilcwe, was handed to them.Biuiing thai if llicy would play somo of their very nicest pieces he would go down with llieiu to Crit tenden's and tcl up the oysters. After playing all their pieces two or three times, U.iurchlll remarked that his arms were tired, and Frankfurter declared that ho had lost his lip, and the others said they were played out. It was sugges'id that they should remind the senator of his promise; but judge of their bitrprlse when the messenger returned with the report tnat Senator Howe was -Ignorant of any such promise. The truth gradually dawned upon the boys that they were the objects of a practical joke nnd they quietly gathered themselves up and stole away into tho darkness, vowing vengeance upon the perpetrator.
