Miss Cornell made a visit to her cousin, Glen Talbot, car rying away a pleasant impression of the U. of N. Miss Alma Benedict has gone to St. Louis for a week's visit with her brother.

Wagner was elected at the last meeting of the I Ins 1'KRIAN Association, as associate editor. The board is at last filled and with a strong representative. And now comes the spring time when "a young man's fan cy lightly turns to thoughts of love." The south alcoves and stairs will be more in demand than ever. Miss Sopha Myers, '86, who is teaching in Heatrice this year, spent last Sunday in Lincoln. The University saw but little of her, owing to a severe attack of neuralgia.

The Palladians displayed their appreciation of good musia by subscribing $250 towards a new piano. Their boy's de bating club made a very acceptable presentation of a hand some secretary to the society, Friday, Mar 4th. There arc few students who can make a two days trip and capture a silken ringlet from some hard hearted metropolitan lass. Matthcwson is one of them, however, so he says. In quire, and he will, besides telling you the whole thing, invite you down to have oysters on the strength of his prospective in-law. For some time the third year German class has been con ducted on the plan of a class in a German university. No lesson is given out, but each student brings his dictionary and grammar and docs his study in the class, getting over as much ground as possible. They all think they have a soft snap.

The library should be preeminently a library for the stu dents; a library of reference, where students can pore over the volumes, acquire a personal acquaintan e with the most important works and authors. To do this they should have free access to the alcoves, leaving the proper care of the books to the students; in iacl the present system should be abolish ed and the students put in possession of what was originally purchased for them.- -C. S. P. Well, you know, I don't just believe in this here society ex clusiveness, where your social advantages are limited and where every question concerning the University or the stu dents are looked at with the same colored spectacles of socie ty conservatism. I believe in class feeling, where the mem bers of the same class can get together and have just a x ping old time, and each not be compelled to think whether the members of his society are getting enough honors or oc cupying a prominent enough place.
