To a student, a sound body is of no less import
ance than a sound mind. With this fact in view, it
is difficult to see why shivering students are expected
to spend these cold days in unheated buildings.
With reference to the first battle of the class wars
of theyear: The few sentences from faculty to stu
dents were models of reasons and courtesy. We are
certain that the students failed to do their part only
through the unavoidable absence from chapel of the
Sophomore class, and their consequent failure to heai
the words addressed to them. Class wars are the
natural manifestation of a healthy college spirit, and
no man of judgment could wish to see them ended.
It is the duty of the studentshowever, and it should
be their thought, to se,e thq thgy.bpng nqdisqredit

THEcardinal dfference between the administration
of the present and that of the past is that the students
now receive such usage as gentlefolk may expect and
claim. Here there is certainly no necessity for iron
clad discipline; and to us there is nothing more
obnoxious than ostentation and parade of authority.
This term we have been asked to do certain
things and not to do certain other things, and the
requests have, in cyery case, met with the ready and
cheerful approval of the listeners. We have claimed
to be gentlefolk. If we are to substantiate this claim
we are bound to accede to any reasonable request
that is made in a courteous manner. So think the
students, and so they act. It may be said that every
request so far made, has more than satisfactorily met
both these conditions.

marks the beginning of a oe.v era of svodtf-wide ap
preciation for the University .otfeVraska,''' though it
may be many years before this appreciation produces
any direct result. The ability and the learning are
here; and all that was lacking was some means of
demonstrating this fact to the world. Now the Board
of Regents have kindly made a temporary financial
provision for the work, but as yet it is only
an experiment. The students and all those interested
in the future success and fame of the university most
sincerely wish that the publication may be placed
upon a firm and permanent foundation.
The students are aware that our faculty contains
.men that have already attracted the attention of the
entire learnd world. This they have done as indi
viduals, and it is as individuals that they are now
thought of elsewhere. One result of the new publica
tion will be to keep constantly before the minds of
those at a distance the fact that each of these emi
nent specialists is a part of our university. This can
not at all detract from individual reputations. It
will only give to the Alma Mater the name that is
A glance at the pages of the first number is suffic
ient to show that "Studies" is .not intgndedftfjgen
eral circulation; but it may not be out of place to
offer a word in explanation of its real character. It
is designed to represent the results of strictly original
investigations by western scientists. No paper is to
be admitted that is merely a new treatment of old
subjects. Each number is to be a contribution to
the world's knowledge, and a contribution that no
I specialist can afford to pass by. The aim is high, to
