The ducks obtained by our bold hunters were served up to
them and their ladies on the evening of the 23rd at the Par
lor Restaurant. The supper was almost a banquet, and after
it had been well disposed of the party adjourned to the Sig
ma Chi parlors and spent the remainder of the evening in the
usual student way.
Students should be as much interested in the growth of
Lincoln as other folks. Therefore it pleases us to notice that
with all her railroads and water works the city isn't going to
stop but expects to go right along with a system of sewerage
ard a canning factory. The only other thing that the spring
weather presses upon our attention is the need of pavement
and better sidewalks,
We, who thought that "grim-visaged War had smoothed his
wrinkled front" arc apt to be disappointed. There are ru
mors of war, dire, disastrous war, and the University is liable
to be wrenched and torn as never before It is too bad that
we cannot have one year of peace; but it seems as if it cannot
be. It is to be hoped that the storm may blow over, and that
the friendly feelings now existing between all classes of stu
dents may remain.
It is frequently the case that some Prep, tries to get up a
mash with some other innocent; but it is out of the usual rou
tine to have a dignified Sophomore attempt such a thing. Ye
we are creditably informed that a fair member of 'SB together
with a friend is doing Ler best to create a hopeless longing in
the breasts of two male members ol the same class. In this
case it is love stronger than a brother's. Boys, take card
She is funning you. .
It was a mean trick, there is no doubt about that, but just
the same it was a good joke. Of course he was only waiting
for Ev. to copy his notes, which was perfectly legitimate.
And it was all right for her to go out with Ham. It was the
combinations of the affair which made it so funny. One look
on his face was worth four years of student life. If this needs
explaining ask Ham or Ev., or perhaps Frank can tell you, he
is so fond of a good joke.
Ansley, Pierce, Clark and Mockett went duck hunting.
Twelve ducks and one prairie chicken -were the results of their
expedition. But if you had only seen Ansley the next morn
ing when he came to breakfast He is a fearless rider but
when the broncho suddenly requested him to dismount, he
did so without murmuring, and lighted in amudhole. We do
not vouch for this last statement for it is only inferred from
his appearance next morning.
One of the happy events of the season was the marriage of
Miss IrmaBeghtol to Mr. Kate of Andubon, Iowa. MissBegh
tol had severed her connection with the University but she
had not forgotten the many friendships formed during her
short stay with us, which was shown by the number of students
she had at the marriage ceremony. The wedding took place
Saturday, 20th, .and biddingndieu to Lincoln friends the happy
conple started for their future home in Audubon, on the fol
Light from -"our lamp of new learning" seems to be in pretty
constant demand. Prof. Hicks is .at present in Chicago de
livering a course of three lectures before the Morgan Park
Theological Seminary and will, heiore returning, address the
ministers' conference of that city. Pxof. Edgren has been en
gaged to deliver the main course of lectures at Chatauqua this
summer. Pxof. Bessey has been compelled to decline many
pressing invitations to lecture, because it was impossible to
spare "the time from his -work in the University.
Among his most intimate friends it is generally conceded
that Willow Jones went to California to see his mother, but
among those not so well infermed a. multitude of rumors arc
afloat. The cxtremest is that having, in order to graduate,
embezzled funds entrusted to his care, he has been obliged to
flee. Of course it cannot be true, but the fact that it can be
believed destroys some measure of the implicit trust we have
heretofore had in Mr. Jones. Another report is that having
rcccvicd intimation that his attendance on Commencement
exercises would not De essential to those exercises, he has con
cluded that the air of California will be better for his health
than that of Nebraska. We trust that this also is infamous,
but if we do not get word from the absent one shortly we too
shall have to doubt.
Yes, they had a meeting the Juniors we mean. It was
held at the home of Miss Laura Roberts. They assembled at
an early hour and ordered the carriages to return at 10,30.
There was something peculiar about this Junior meeting, oa
account of the fact that one third of those present were Jun
iors, two thirds were Sophomores and Freshmen, and the re
maining one third were foreigners. Said foreigners were
Chevalier de Kontske, Baron von Poggendorf and Codding.
Ihe evening was passed in the customary manner, enlivened
by the foreign wit of the above mentioned gentlemen. Re
freshments were served, after which Miss Dell Stratton was
elected Class President, Mr. Cheney, Secretary, and other
officers too numerous to mention. Said officers to preserve
their official dignity until the next meeting which will be held
on May 10th at the home of E. H. Eddy, at which time they
will eat biscuits and honey. On account of previously con
tracted debts by some of the boys, the drivers refused to re
turn with the carriages and at 1 1 r. M. the meeting adjourned
in silence boys crestfallen girls mad foreigners hosaesick.
