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.
