friendly to the advertisers, See how friendly you can
be. It may help you and will certainly help us.
40MPOSITORS are curious creatures. If it
were possible, we would get along without themj'
but we cannot. We tried to say in our last issue,
"It would now seem that it is possible for a man to
graduate from the University and retain his religious
convictions." The compositor made it "impossible"
and. in spite of a correction in the proof, it so appear
ed in the paper. We hope that no wrong impression
was created by the error.
RATORY, and oratorical contests do not arouse
any visible amount of enthusiasm in the Univer
sity tl.is fall.. The time for the local contest, which
should have been during this term, is not yet decid
ed. Yet when a meeting was called for the purpose
of deciding on a date, scarcely any one heeded the
call. If the University of Nebraska does not wish
to be the laughing-stock of our visitors next May,
more ir.terest and more energy must be shown in the
local association, and more united action must be tak

this manner, but the student-body can blame no one
except themselves, if we do so, for they have the pre
ventative in their own hands. Let them use it.
SjrHE first preparatory is doomed, though its
'V'b actual abolishment may not occur for some
time. The first move was made by the faculty last
week, as noted elsewhere. This is no doubt a proper
step, and one which all have been accustomed to
think of, in the future. However, bidding farewell
to the pretty prep girl, precocity in knickerbockers,
and the country boy just from district school, makes
us consider. It will produce quite a revolution our
social affairs, but it will tend to raise the average
maturity of students, the general character of Uni
versity work. Abolishment will be hard on preps
and on some upper classmen who are fond of preps.
Prepdoin will however soon be superfluous, and it
