It is too soon to state what has been done for the
University by the legislature. But let the friends of
the University remember hereafter, that in order to
make its welfare secure, they must ever be vigilant.
"Warm love will turn to bitter hate." Once
upon a time a certain man advertised himself as the
friend of higher education in Nebraska. Notice the
action and course of that individual in the capitol,
and does not the old adage apply to him?
The local contest will probably take place in the
chapel, Monday evening April 1st. It would be wise

Thf proposition to substitute two joint exhibitions
for the four annual exhibitions of the literary societies
should receive more attention. When only two such
societies were in existence their annual exhibitions
formed attractive features of commencement exercises.
When each of the four societies proposes to have an
annual exhibition, it is too much. Of course mutual
sacrifices must be made on the part of the societies. But
there are other considerations to be taken into account
than the claims of the societies. The students should
consider the matter of joint programs candidly.
There are two sides to the question at least.

of law. Twenty-three percent are engaged in teach
ing either as fullfledged professors or principals ot
high schools. Five peicent are engaged in the prac
tice of medicine. Eight percent are engaged in news
paper work. Five percent are ministers. Five per
cent are engaged in industrial pursuits, five percent
