How happy is the Senior, happy thing,
While he has a pretty maiden, on the string,
But how his thoughts do tussle,
O'er the fact that he must rustle,
Or he minus a diploma in the spring.
Wc hear that the "Two Johns," Margarty and Fohlc held
the bag in a game that savored much of the old time snipe
hunt one evening last week. They report game plenty hut
hard to capture.
One of the senior girls is wearing a handsome diamond
ring, and an alumnus of the U. of N, who is a very particu
lar friend of hers, is erecting a residence in Lincoln. What

The unusual amount of encrg y that is being expended by
science professors upon the revirsion of the course is expected
to alleviate the crush ol laboratory work during the Sopho
more and Junior year without materially changing the quan
tity or quality of the work done during the entire course.

Mr. Wheeler and an Omaha quartetttc.
The commencement invitations will be the most novel
ever sent out from the University of Nebraska. They will
be engraved and printed by Drcka, of Philadelphia, and
besides the class autographs so much admired in the invi
tations of '88, will contain two composite photographs, one
of the boys and one of the coeds of the class. They will be
a very neat invitation.
The State Oratorical association met in the University

The band boys with their coeds spent a very enjoyable
evening last Saturday. They met at the Uni with the appar

out to Eighteenth aud L to the accompanient of the Major
drum, before Males thought to remember that it was the
occasion of his twenty-first birthday and to conclude that he
was marching the band out to scicnade himself. They
persed early Sunday morning. Bryan receives
neatly working up the surprise.
The marriage of Mr. Will T. Gadd and Miss Lydia G.
Reynolds last week was one of those pleasant surprises that
are hardly a surpr.se after all. Miss Reynolds is well known
among University pi,pplc, having been a studeut for several
years past. Mr. Gadd is "son" in the well known real estate
firm of E. T. Gadd & Son of the city. They left iinmcdi

student friends are discussing the situation and preparing to
give them a hearty reception on their return.

umpire been square. The score is as follows:

The board of editors has thought that the students might
appreciate a double Commencement number of The Hesper
ian, containing reports of all exercises and synopses, at least,
of all the commencement orations. This would be the most
convenient form in which to have a full account of the week
to preserve or to send to friends. But this will mean a large
extra outlay of money on the part of the business manager.
It will be necessary for a large number of extra copies to be
taken by the faculty and students or the expense cannot be
borne. It rests with you then, whether you will have a full
or a scant report of Commencement week. If encouragement
is shown you will have the double edition. Give your names
to the business manager or to any of the editors with the
number of extra copies you will take.
