The class of '89 is showing commendable enter
prise in its efforts to establish class day exercises
during commencement. Class day is almost univer
sally obseived by other colleges, and the University
of Nebraska can not afford to be behind in this
respect. There is no reason why class day exercises
can not be made the most enjoyable and entertaining
of all exercises occurring during commencement week.
It is to be hoped that '89 will be successful in its
A yell is needed for the students a genuine
western, lun;-developing yell. Some genius in the
University ought to be able to furnish such a yell.
If any student can remember the vigorous efforts of
his early childhood and can evolve from these a suit
able college yell, he will be a friend of the students
indeed. A yell we must have. On this account if
any student will bring a vigorous yell into ihe Hes
perian office and place it at the disposal of the
editors he will be rewarded. Now then get out and
rustle before springtime comes.
It is said that the associations with which a stud
ent is thrown in contact while in college, and the
knowledge of human nature formed in consequence
have much to do in devloping his character. This
is true; and yet there is one tendency to which many
students are given that is to be condemned.
Some students seem to think that a college lite
is a fitting time in which to develop political smart
ness. Time and again in the history of this institu
tion have several students combined and schemed
for the accomplishment of some particular plan or for
the political downfall of another student, merely for
the sake of political training. It is against such a.
tendency that a protest should be made. The Uni
versity is not a training school for politicians whose
ambitions are but little higher than those of a ward
boodler. It is too much to knife a certain student or
a certain class merely for the sake of working a polit
ical scheme. In other words, there is a desire among
some students to become sucessful college politicians
even if the rights of others are sacrificed. College
politics can soon become an evil, and can work great
injury. This fact should never be forgotten by the
