ligh t of these serious mutters, those whom modern society
designates as "mashers."
Mr. Editor: I am pleased to sec so great interest taken in
your paper a has lately been manifested, and heartily concur
with Sans Detour concerning the support a college paper
should receive at the hands of the students. I come forward
emboldened somewhat by the freedom with which that cor
respondent has expressed himself, not with the ostensible pur
pose of benefitting the paper however, but with the idea of
giving expression to feelings which I have in common w ilh
most of your readers, but which 1 have so far suppressed. I
can recall a time when The Hesperian as well as other pa
pers throughout the slate sent in a plea for changes here which
all deemed necessary if the .University was to live. I also re
member how this petition has been answered. The Hester
IAN has an influence in University matters which no other pa
per can claim, and this by virtue of its being the exponent of
the views of the students. The Hesperian has witnessed
discord in our ranks and it has seen the causes of that discord
removed. It has seen places filled by incompetent men and
the University suffer h ihcrr mismanagement. It has also
seen the most of these places refilled, this lime by good and
competent men. And now it again .becomes your duty to
point those in authority to a new, though old, source of com
plaint, -the management of the College Farm.
As heretofore managed it has come lo lie a thorn in the
flesh lo every supporter of ihe University. It has lccorac so
necessary to bring up for investigation the management of
the College Farm, and at snch regular intervals, thai it really
seems as if student life would be an insipid thing without the
attendant excitement. I come forward with no new charre.
for it is a lamentable fact that the grounds for the Mine old
charges still exist. That there is at present not a single stu
dent in the Agricultural dc"partmervihal there has been but
one during the year, and that the prospects for the next year
arc no more flattering, all this givcsevidcncc of even poorer
management than the Farm has ever before reached. But
why is this? I will not go into details; but when students see
the harvesting of a crop cost twice as much as it is worth
when harvested, when they sec the stock poorly cared fort
when their own class work is neglected, under these circum
stances who, I pray, will wonder at the lack of interest Ufkcn
n the Agricultural Course?
There is yet another phase of the question. We all know
the desire on the part of many to remove the Agricultural De
partment from Lincoln, and we know that men have said op
enly hat from now on they will ight every measure proposed
for the benefit of that department. We know too, with how
great difficulty measure pertaining to the welfare of the whole
University were passed by our last legislature; wc know that
, promises were made then to the effect that thh department
should be made a credit to the University and to the state,
and only on the strength of such assurances were the mach
needed appropriations made. In the face of these facts
there is great need of immediate and permanent improvement.
When the existence of the University is thus made to depend
upon the success of that department it becomes a matter of no
small moment. Whether or not a change will be necessary
before the improvement can begin we do not ask, only, let
its have improvement.
I know that there has been some little trouble between the
management and the Farm students, but I am not of that
number, and moreover am not actuated by any prejudice
against the management at the Farm. Neither is it because I
like to find fault that I notice the sad condition of affairs. It
is, finally, because it will soon be noticed by persons less char
tabic, who will aim not at righting, grievances but rather at
the destruction of the whole institution.
Yours in the interests of the University. '
