Housing the State University.
The authorities charger! with the
management of Nebraka State univer
sity are beginning to realize that the
next big problem before them la that
of housing the institution. Housing the
university as It exist" today presents a
difficult, enough task, but the still
more important demand is for a far
seeing plan that will not only provide
for present needs, but will be adapted
to the vastly expanded requirements
of the not distant future.
While buildings and campus, in
themselves, by no means make a uni
versity, the rapid growth of our state
university has prevented adequate at
tention being devoted to this feature.
Nebraska's university compares well
with similar institutions of other pro
gressive states in everything but ma
terial surroundings. It is significant
that it waited for the perfection of a
plan for comprehensive development
of the medical department at Omaha
to emphasize and accentuate the
marked defects of the building group
of the parent institution at Lincoln.
The problem of suitably housing the
state university Is not to be worked
out over night. It Involves the question
whether it is better to try to extend
the present cramped location or to
transplant the university bodily to a
new site free from existing encum
brances and affording ample room to
grow. It Involves the question of style
of architecture and landscape garden
ing. It involves the question of fixing
the boundary line of the university's
activities. . It provides the question of
the relation of the Institution to its
student body and to the city of Lin
coln as a business center and a social
community. The problem of housing
the university calls for careful and de
liberate consideration, and yet the de
cision cannot be too long deferred.
Our Variegated Alphabet.
Since the modern school system dis
carded the teaching of the alphabet
some of us old fogies who studied
their A- B C's have had reason to
lament no longer, for one of the great
university psychologists has given a
newer dignity and distinction to. the
alphabet that should restore It to its
pristine precedence without delay. In
brief, the theory is that each letter has
its own color tone, as orange for I,
reddish for Z, deep blue for O. Any
one who knows all the letters can
readily see that before the list is com
pletely painted the alphabet will have
made Joseph's famous coat take to the
woods and hide among the autumn
It is an undeniably pretty theory
and has infinite possibilities. Starting
with the knowledge that S has a yel
lowish tone, we may Instantly conceive
that the $ mark is pure golden. Carry
ing the scheme into words, we recog
nize the cucumber as green, and the
politician as a rich plum color. Blue
blazes has long been recognized as a
characteristic of some forms of ex
pression, just as the air has been
known to be made black .with some
other varieties, andwe now realize
that the responsibility of talking one
deaf, dumb and blind" may be traced
to the dazzling tints displayed in the
conversational pyrotechnics. But the
scientific discovery presents a dlscour-
aging outlook in the prodigious work
that will be entailed In the remodeling
of familiar expressions. Aa for in
stance, the term "hue and cry," which
in the face cf this color scheme is dis
tinctly tautological. The word cry
necessarily carries Its own mournful
hue, just as the word smile immedi
ately suggests a mellow glow that is
Invisible after 8 o'clock.
But these color tones In letters and
words are really a great thing, and the
close student of the scheme may be
able to frame up a personal vocabu
lary In such harmony that he shall
always be able to radiate either a
heliotrope or a rose-colored atmos
phere when calling upon his best girl,
or a fawn color when seeking to
negotiate a loan. Welcome anew to
the alphabet, so long laid away in
lavender, and let us acclaim its varie
gated glories with all the honors for
merly accorded to only red letter days.
Troubles of the Accountants.
Expert accountants and professional
bookkeepers are sighting all sorts of
troubles in front of them arising out
of the corporation Income- tax en
grafted on the new tariff law. The
phraseology of the law Is naturally
open to various constructions as is the
phraseology of nearly every law, but
more than that the basis on which the
tax on corporate net revenues is to be
adjusted Is pronounced by them to be
unscientific and violative of every rule
of safe and sound accounting.
The question propounded by the tax
gatherer is to be, What are the net re
ceipts of the corporations for the pre
ceding calendar year after making cer
tain specified deductions? Taking the
basis of net receipts instead of net
earnings, is denounced as unscientific
because actual collections and outgo
are not necessarily the same as actual
revenue earned and obligations In
curred. The arbitrary fixing of the
calendar year for all corporations, not
withstanding the fact that the corpor
ate year may overlap from one year to
another, also makes It incumbent on
such corporations to balance accounts
and charge off various Items of ex
pense a second time Instead of only
once. The penalties of the law for fail
ure to comply with Its requirements
are likewise held up as threateningly
dangerous to corporations whose book
keepers make unavoidable mistakes.
There is no doubt that the new cor
poration tax law means a great deal of
work for the accountant and auditors.
and for some big corporations will en
tall no small burden to got out the re
quisite returns. The whole law, of
course, la likely to be contested In
court, but, assuming that it holds
good, it will take time and experience
to put the machinery of the new
tax Into smooth running order. Yet It
may be reasonably taken for granted
that the policy of the government will
be to facilitate compliance where an
honest effort to comply is manifested
and that the penalties will be Invoked
only where there is evidence of de
liberate Intention to Ignore the law
or evade the tax. The accountants who
keep books for corporations will be ex
pected to do their best to make the
returns called for by the law, and have
a right to expect in return an oppor
tunity to correct unintentional mis
takes. The Latest in Locomotion.
Invention is traveling fast in
quest of faster locomotion until
have grown accustomed to the rapid
supplanting of new devices designed
to revolutionize travel. The turbine has
developed amazing possibilities of
speed for the steamship. Automobiles
and airships have added their measure
of bewilderment to the rapidity of
flight over the earth's surface and
above it. But railroads have continued
to be our chief traffic-bearer and rail
roads, as we know them, seem to have
reached the limit of their capacity for
Practical operation has Just been
demonstrated, however, of a new form
of railroad that appears to merit all
that Its Inventor claims for It, a swift
ness exceeding 100 miles an hour In
comparative safety. Louis Brennan,
who became famous through his Inven
tion of the torpedo which bears
bis name, found the world skeptical
when he announced some time ago that
he could combine the gyroscope and
monorail into a practical form of loco
motion, yet that Is what he la now
credited with having accomplished.
In his public demonstration in England
a few days ago he used a forty-foot car
carrying forty passengers, operated
over a single rail In an upright posi
tion by two huge gyroscopes. An elec
tric motor kept the gyroscopes revolv
ing and drove the car at high speed
along stretches of straight track and
around sharp curves with an easy and
Now that this achievement Is of
ficially applauded as the beginning of
a revolution In railroading, we may
look for its present application as at
least a possibility. Every boy who has
ever spun a top will at once recognize
the principle of the invention, which, if
completely successful, will transform
an ancient toy into an, agency for
man's fastest flight. I
Getting- the Ringleaders.
From the latest announcement Im
plicating men higher up In the sugar
frauds It Is evident that the watch
word of the government U, "Let no
guilty man escape" against whom
there is evidence warranting prosecu
tion. The difficulty of securing tangible
proof appears as great in these sugar
fraud cases as in the notorious whisky
ring frauds which burdened the second
term of President Grant. In that his
toric episode it will be remembered
that while the administration was not
directly Involved, officials of the reve
nue department were found to be in
league with the crooked distillery in
terests and that because of the intri
cate care with which the plot was per
fected Secretary Bristow of the Treas
ury department was confronted with a
gigantic task in ferreting out the
offenders. Ultimately the men higher
up were caught and nearly 250 indict
ments brought against distillers and
revenue officials, conviction of the
ringleaders being fttially secured. Al
though the government had been de
frauded of nearly $1,700,000 before
the extent of the conspiracy was mani
fest, the people had the satisfaction of
seeing the whisky ring broken up and
the conspirators either placed In prison
or made outcasts for life.
Corruption In the customs collection
occasionally crops out In spite of the
utmost vigilance and the sudden in
fusion of new blood is having a visible
effect on the health of the service.
Powerful interests have assailed the
activities of the administration in pur
suing the sugar frauds just as they
assailed those attacking the whisky
ring in Grant's time, but having
started In to clean house Uncle Sam
must do a thorough job and can be no
respecter of persons.
Home for the Holidays.
What a merry, old-fashioned flavor
arises from the little paragraph in the
current news, simply stating that "the
president will spend the Christmas
holidays in the White House with his
family." Here is presented a picture
of home-gathering which will in
stantly appeal to every American fam
ily, father returned from his Journey
lngs and the children back from
school. The responsibility of official
position disappears for the time and
the chief executive becomes the man of
family, closely akin to all other fathers
similarly celebrating the annual festiv
ities at the hearthstone.
Christmas at the White House con
jures up a scene of holly and ever
green, with good cheer toning official
dignity, and with substantial comfort,
elbowing its way good-naturedly
toward fireside and table, for a time
relegating the formalities of state. In
contrast with the pomp of regal pal
ace, the very name White House Is
suggestive of the simplicity of Amerl-t-au
traditions, and the quiet announce
ment of the plan for a family reunion
at Yuletlde reminds us all of the
wholesome fart that our presidents are
representative of us as a plain people,
and Infuses the real Christmas spirit
Into our lives In preparation for the
Thanksgiving celebration that Inaugu
rates the busy term of gift-platnlng
and holiday-making, which is at its
merry best under the home roof-tree.
The Family Unit of Society.
The steady Increase of divorce is
generally regarded as a most ominous
menace to the progress of the race.
That there has been a tremendous In
crease in the proportion of marriage
dissolutions, and that the rate of in
crease Is still growing in this country
has been demonstrated over and over
by the statistics. Is the divorce evil
ultimately to disrupt the family as a
unit of civilized society? This is the
question that is self-propounded when
ever the subject of divorce is under
It is reassuring to find that the most
recent and most exhaustive study of
the diVorce problem answers this ques
tion in the negative. A volume Just
Issued embodying the investigations of
Dr. James P. Llchtenberger Into the
facts of divorce which he calls "A
Study in Social Causation" Insists that
the modern Increase of family dis
union is produced by changing condi
tions in the industrial, economic and
social relations of the sexes; that It is
due to the spread of intelligence and
the emancipation of women manifested
In social friction that Is Irritating but
not necessarily destructive. The new
conditions make it necessary that
there be greater freedom of divorce
rather than less, so that the family of
the future may be founded upon vol
untary will and not on external force.
Summing up his generalizations, Dr.
Llchtenberger formulates the follow
The single palling; family will persist

basis of "mutual attraction and prefer

wifehood of choice and a motherhood of
privilege will Insure not more numerous,
but better born children. The higher edu
cation and mora systematic development
of women will result In the better train

be entrusted with the problem of secular
education and the church with the re
ligious instruction, but the borne will con
tinue to be the only school adequate for
the development of strong personality and
the attainment of life In all its highest
After all the alarms sounded over
the admitted evils of divorce and all
the dire predictions of certainty of
family chaos unless divorce is wholly
suppressed, this statement from an un
biased authority, who haa approached
the subject as a scientific problem, at
least lets In a ray of hope to Illumine
the darkness of the future and to en
courage faith that the family unit of
society will eventually be strengthened
The Missionary Pathfinder.
Inclusion of a bequest of nearly
$3,000,000 for foreign missions in the
recent will of an American millionaire
afforded opportunity for the custom
ary criticism of those who are opposed
to this particular cause. Adherents of
the Christian church are familiar with
the apostolic doctrine of their faith
which commands to "go forth Into all
the world and preach the gospel to
every creature," and believe that for
eign missions are but an exponent of
this fundamental. But as a matter of
fact the missionary la more than an
exponent of a religious propaganda.
As a matter of business, to put the
matter in Its basest light, money spent
for missions Is a form of Investment
on which returns are expected.
Any merchant familiar with the de
velopment of the world's commerce
will testify that trade follows the mis
sionary. That has been the experi
ence in all lands. Our own country was
originally opened up to traffic largely
through the Instrumentality of the re
ligious apostle of civilization and the
nomenclature of the west is full of
relics of those early pioneers. The
missionary does not force his creed
upon any native; indeed, in many
lands the converts are few and far be
tween; but wherever the mission Is ex
tended, not only are the civilizing
forces of the white man fostered
among a people who are benefited by
them, but also the commerce of the
white man takes a new foothold and
begins a further advance, so that prac
tically, as well as ethically, the occa
slonal gift of a few millions to., the
cause of missions Is not to be con
sldered money thrown away.

were playing, and not a player piano.
"Then, too, one must give the Melville Clark people credit for turn
ing out the FIRST "88 note players" the "Solo Apollo" Is an "88
note player" and you wouldn't have the "lesser note" kind after
hearing THIS make.

AN 0L' SAYIN' OF MOTHER'S. .
John D. Wolls.
The older that a body gits
The better, seems t' me.
He ret-kolecls the folks an' Jokes
An' things that used t' be;
Like other night, whilst settln' there
An' rompin' through the years.
An' drlftln' on the back'urds way,
1 swan I heord my mother say:
"Go wash yer neck an' ears!"
It took me back fer forty years.
An' l'a a boy again,
With same dislike fer water that
Was natural to me then;
I seemed f feel my snecrlt rise.
An' feel my boyish tears
A-rollIn' down In same ol' way.
Like when rny mother used f sayt
"Go wash yer neck an' ears!"
Clean neck an' ears you reckolect
Was purl' nigh disgrace
There wa'n't no sensn In washin' 'cept
Perhaps a body's face!
We ut;e4 t' think that mas was mad
To add to boyish kecrs,
An' stand around In boasin' way,
When boys waa tlredest, an' say t
"Go wash yer neck an' ears!"
An' ylt I'll warrant that tonight
You'd like f go f Led
In same ol' room, with locust bloom
On shingle roof, an' hold yer breath
With all your boyliih fears,
An' hear ol' mother softly creop
I'pstalra an' ask y'; "Gone to slee.pT ,
Didju wash yer neck an' ears?"
