moving of the departments of botany and physics to Nebraska
Hall and the rearrangement of the chemical laboratory it will
be impossible to open a regular summer school this vacation.
In so far, however, as work may not be interrupted by the
removal, teachers arc free to pursue such studies as they
wish. In the near future this school for teachers will be a
very important part ol the work of the University.
In the University of Nebraska the significance of the
term and coeducation is shown by the broad interpretation
which it receives. A base ball nine has just been organized
by a few of the enterprising young ladies. Every pleasant
Saturday afternoon this team of loveliness may be seen in
all its glory on the base ball grounds about two miles from
town. Their suits, a great attraction, are sa;d to be neat,
natty and becoming. Last spring the girls gave their atten
tion to drilling. At present the craze is base ball, and
another year will probably reveal unusual talent in another
direction. Perhaps the co eds will win all the prizes in ath
letic sports on Fild Day.
Professor Chas. E. Bcssey, "69, is at present acting Chan
cellor of the University of Nebraska, he having declined the
chancellorship, preferring his own department of botany and
forestry. Professor Bcssey is a member of several prominent
scientific societies. Upon the invitation of the State legisla
ture of Nebraska he delivered an address before that honor
able body last winter, his subject being "The object and
needs of a State University." Professor Bcssey is now revis
ing the sixth edition of his botany. He is also preparing a
treatise on Systematic Botany, and has under way an Ele
mentary Botany, both of which will soon appear. Speculum,
Michigan Agricultural College.
One of the most enjoyable and pleasant meetings of the
year was held at the home of Miss Ellen Smith, Saturday
evening, May 25. Our esteemed librarian invited the Senior
class to partake ol her hospitality and have a good time gen
erally., This was done to the utmost satisfaction ol all con
cerned. The refreshments were somewhat novel but fur
nished an unlimited amount of fun, when it is remembered
that the Seniors had just completed their final examinations,
the pleasure enjoyed can'be appreciated. At a seasonable
hour '89 took leave with best wishes for the happiness of
their kind hostess.
The Hesperian board of editors now feel that it is not
in vain that they occupy their exalted positions. Last week
a very courteous letter was received from President Foss, ol
the Crete Chautauqua Assembly, announcing the attractions
for this year and enclosing complimentarics for all the board.
Such favors arc appreciated by everyone of us. The
assembly will hold forth from June 27 to July 9, and cveiy
student who can possibly attend should do so. Not only will
.they find the assembly grounds beautiful and the pleasures
afforded great, but the most excellent lectures, music, musi
cal instruction, etc., will make the occasion very profitable
as well. Such names as Dr. Alexander McKenzie, Dr. J. T.
Duryca, Professor R. L. Cumnoi k, Hon. J. W. Donovan,
Ex-Gov. Will Cumback, Hon. G. W. Bain, Professor Frank
Beard, etc., are sufficient to guarantee an intellectual treat.
The Imperial quartette will be one of the musical attractions.
Fourth of July, Editors' Day and Lawyers' Day will be the
great days, but it will pay you to go any day.
The arrangements for Field Day are going on apace; in
other words, they are booming. The committees, always
faithful to thrir duties, have kept things lively in making
preparation. Such a prograr has been arranged that all the
students may take part, if not in all, at least in some of the
exercises. The business men of the town, with their usual
liberality, have come down well with the prizss. The stud
ents will do well to keep in mind these liberal, open handed
men be assured that they can always do well in trading with
them. All the prizes have not yet been secured, but before
Field Day a prize will be secured for each exercise.
The program as arranged is as follows: 100 yard dash
standing broad jump; running broad jump, straw hat given
by S. Schwab; putting the shot; wrestling, lightweight, prize,
Uantc's Inlcrno, given by A. I. Iteming 6: uo.; wrestling,
heavy weight; tug of war, first and second tugs; standing
high jump; running high jump; hop !kip and a jump; 300
yard dash; long run, half mile, prize, flannel shirt, given by

three volumes, price $7.50, on the heavyweight wrestle.
