TJ1J4E have heard some gentle murmurs against
M the proposed ball at the inter-state contest.
Our paper, as the representative of a Christian denom
inational college, protests against any such entertain
ment. We have it on good authority that students
from jnst as Christian institution perhaps as the one
protesting is heartily in favor of a ball.. Now we
do not care to express an opinion either way but
will be content to let the proper authorities settle the
matter. If it has been customary to have balls at
previous inter-state contests we see no reason for de
parting from the rule. As it has been said we care
nothing for the ball but desire to see everything done
that may in any manner serve to make the trip to
Lincoln pleasing to the visitors.
HE HESPERrAN has observed with pride the rapid
development of the department of political
economy under the present instructor Formerly
there was but one three hour study in this department.
Now in addition to the prescribed course there are
several electives in this department. Formerly no
one, not evenjthe seniors, seemed to have the faintest
conception of the great social problems that are at
tracting the attention of live political economists all
over the country. Now, one may easily judge, from
the matters discussed in our literary societies, that our
students are taking the greatest interest in those social
problems that the nation will soon be called upon to
solve. Formerly political economy seemed to be dry
and uninteresting. Now it is quite the reverse.
This state of affairs is highly gratifying. What the
country needs is practical, intelligent, thinking men
and women. There is a lack of those who are posted
upon social questions of the day. Free trade and
protection is not the only problem that confronts the
