The board of editors take great pleasure in pre
senting tHis issue of The Hesperian. They are glad
the custom of printing a full account of Commence
ment week in the college paper is inaugurated. They
hope it will be continued. This issue is the fruit of
much time, labor and money expended. If it is
faulty, please ascribe it to lack of ability and to the
hurried manner of preparation. Our intentions have
been good. We take this occasion to thank the fac
ulty and students for their support which has made
this enterprise possible.
The summer vacation has now begun. The stud
ents will be free from the college work for three
months. But let no student forget that he still
remains a part of the University. Let everyone have
the welfare of the institution constantly in mind.
Seize every opportunity to speak a good word for
your alma mater. The students form the best cri
terion by which the University can be judged. They
represent the University far more than the faculty or
regents. Upon the love displayed by the student
for their school, and the pride they take in it depends
to a great extent the favorable opinion of the public.
Do not be slow to make known the fact that you are
a student from the University of Nebraska. Speak
of its facilities, its aims and its work, wherever you
go. Urge the necessity of suppoiting it with proper
spirit. Cry down any spirit of hostility that may be
manifested toward it. Invite criticism, and at the
same time urge comparison with schools of a like
nature. But throughout all your conduct manifest a
fair and candid spirit. Show by your conduct what
you have gained as a student. The measure of you,
as a student, by the people you meet, will be the
measure of the Univeisity. Let every student
remember that he has a duty to pay and that he is
responsible for very much of the future progress of
this institution. The students must realize quickly
how important a part the) play in the career of the
University, and then must be quick to act accord
ingly. Be a true friend to the University upon every
occasion, and let slip no opportunity for making it
known. If such a course is pursued by every student
the University will ncver lack for iriends. Never
forget your obligations to your alma mater.
