j So far the measure about which there
I is the most talk Is university removal.
Many people of Lincoln oppose the re
moval. The students are Interested In
the outcome of the fight ami the student
paper wie day this week contained an
editorial In answer to the addrees of
l'rof. Wolfe, who oposes' removal.

a spree, not a Minting trip, not a recre
ation camp. It Is a part of real life."
Exactly and just that is wnat a greai
manv of the students do not get. We
believe that the greatest function of a
college education lies In Its effort to
give a man some conception or nis rela
tion in other ncoDlr. sonic laea oi
character ns applied to the devotion of
self to the Interests of others. We do
nrtt mean by this .that the student must
lose account "f practical things, and Ik
educated to discount the importance of
n existence. The latter is a
condition of which wn are constantly and
oppressively conscious. Most ot us are
brought up with me iaea or enrnine
llvltiK ami are made to see that with
out so doing we will s deprived of en
joyment or comfort In living. Hcnct

In Its place spend our time In acquiring
that for which wo came, nnd we can or.
this, wo believe, without losing oui
position as men who are able to stand
up against tho ravages ot business and
professional life.
The environment of the olty Is not
essential to the completion of a succese
ful college, education. It Is a mere Itv
sldcnt. Harvard was performing it
mission In education long before Cam.
bridge had street cara or cafes. The Uni
versity of Chicago Is a great Institution
In spjto ot the environment of the windy
city. Urbana, Columbia. Madison, Stan
ford, I-nwrcnce. Princeton, and many
other places where colleges are located
are essentially college towns built up for
the purpose of supplying the wants ot
attending students.
The fact of the University ha inspired
the growth of tho town. Instead ot the
reverse, as we would be led to believe ws
the case. The modern university derives
its strength from the stuff of which It Is
made. Rxternal Influence Is unimportant
save only ns It affects the Internal life
and organisation of the school. The func
tion of tho university finds expression,
wo behove, in what It s ablo to give Its
students from its own resources and
faculties. What It receives from the out
side Is not essentlul, Indeed It may be
detrimental to Its Interests, If the accept
ance of tho gltt Is accompanied by a re
sulting sacrifice from the Inside.
Tho Importnnt Issue In university re
inovnl Insofar ns tho students are con
cerned is: Will a greater impetus ne
given to tho growth ot a student settle
ment, will student life be made less a
born and more a rcaJlty? In other
words will the students be physically
grouped so as to make them appreciate
that they are social beings, that they

there lurks some apara oi nunraimy, mm
degree of character, and some lingering
likeness to their fellows. The students
need to be brought together, and any
arrangement that tends to discourage
the satisfaction of that need, should re
ceive the hearty and enthusiastic oppo
altlon of the students themselves.
At the present time the atudent body
knows no home of Its own. The students
arc separated from each other by living
In "All parts of the city." They have
nothing to tie to save their landlady and
a few interests they may have in college.
They certainly have little in common with
each phcr for the simple reason that
they do not live together and can not
get acquainted. Prof, Wolfe thinks that
such a condition tn desirable. We think
it Is dcporable, and It university removal
Is going to relieve it, we aro strong for
it. It by getting away from the charms
of tho city, wo can get together In the
country, let's go back to tho simple life,
and enjoy our own company Instead of

LINCOLN, Neb., Jan, 19.-(BpeclaU-It.
IL Wheeler ot Lincoln, who for years
has Jssilrd. tho complied statutes, Is very
much pin favor ot the legislature adopt
ing he revision of the code as prepared
by a code commission. He gave out tho
following statement advocating favor
abla action by the legislature.
Tliero Is a difference between a
staute and a compilation of statutes,
which It Is well to beur In mind, al
though the word "statutes" In common
parlance has the two meaning.
, There is a necessity for an authentic
compilation. Therefore, the work of tho
i-ominlsslon should be adopted. If it Is
not adopted, there will be none, unless
sumo private Individual publishes one,
which Is unlikely, as thero is no pecun
iary profit In tt.
The work Is onerous and the sale
limited, unless tho state subsidises or
protects tho Infant Industry, so to speak,
evou In Its old age. as tt has done up
to the present time, which tt should not
do. (Bee decision III beet sugar bounty

may have most pernicious effects. If It
be not arrested. To ono familiar with
the attention given In this country to
day to the means of rendering environ
ment of our daily life more beautiful, to
give that life a setting capable of awaken
ing In us, finer fasten nnd higher
thoughts, of silently but constantly
counteracting the effects of tho sordid
things of life, to one familiar with all
this and appreciating Its significance and
value, it Is unnecessary to insist upon the
educational Importance of beautiful build
ings and grounds for our new university.
But unfortunately there are those who
take a somewhat narrow view of life and
consequently of education. There aro men
who earn nothing for architecture and
mint lire, for nnlnttntr. literature and
landscape or of a sunset, and who look
jupon all theso things as the unnecessary
frills of life. These things are not "prac
tical." The only philosophy of life these
people possess Is that of business suc
cess, and whatover does not contribute
directly to It Is brushed asldo as visionary
and worthless. The schools, they believe,
should teach readln and spelling, writ
ing .arithmetic and bookkeeping, for ono
must know these thing ot least In order
to get on at nil In life, but If anything
be added to these. In the mind of the
"practical" man, It should be such sub
jects as' enable one to secure a better
Income, to live more luxuriously, and to
rise In the social scale. To such a man
the saying ,"Llfo Is more than meat and
the body than raiment," is unintelligible.
The world may have raised monuments
to those who In the past havo "tied thoir
wagons to a star," but the "practical
man" Is able to appreciate the worth of
such men only when seen through the
perspective of the ages. As neighbors
and contemporaries, they have his deepest
commiseration. It Is true that we must,
have meat and raiment, and that the
production of these necessities should be
properly cared for, but the great funda
mental fact that "meat" Is not "the
life" and "the raiment' Is not "the body"
must never be lost sight of. If existence
Is not to become a sham and a delusion.
This view of the meeting of life may
possibly force us to glvo a different an
swer to the question of what Is "practi
cal" In education. If the final end of
education Is to teach man how to "build
more stately mansions" for his soul, to
put a larger spiritual content lntoo life,
the Jlst of "practical" means of education
must bo extended and reclassified from
the point ot view of ultimate values. It
may turn out that some of the most
"practical" means for the education of
the Individual by the creation of an Ideal
environment have beon strangely neg
lected Can a man or woman be said
to, be cultured, educated. In the host nnd

Deeper lnslglrt Into the meaning of llf
and Inspiration to better tvlng may come
from an Inspired teacher or from a beau
tlful environment. That we appreciate
the value of n beautiful environment is
shown by the choice of a spot to build a
home; in the effort to render tho house,
externally and Internally, pleasing to tho
eye In form and color: in planting around
It trees ad shrubs and flowering plants.
This aprnclatlon of a beautiful environ
ment Is shown in a larger way in tho de
sire to possess beautiful public buildings
and grounds beautiful parks, and even a
"Hly beautiful." If all of this can to
ustlfled and who would question It-how
much more Important that tho environ

In tho university, of those who are to be
the leaders and Insplrers of their fellows,
should havo a beautiful ono? A man
might conceivably feel a spiritual uplift
within the four walls of an office In Wall
street, but his senses are stirred by tho
light of the setting sun. falling through
rose windows, and softly lighting the dim
interior, nnd by the tones of tho organ
and of chanting- voices. More favorable
conditions for the development of the
fine side of the student's personality are
found In the quadrangle and gardens of
Oxford, on the campuses of Cornell, or
Chicago, or Ieland Stanford, than In an
"eight-story office building with an ele
vator." Kducatlon, In tho larger sense.
Is not a "get-rich-qulck scheme," nor a
"short-order lunch counter." It Is
doubtless Important to havo tho buildings
so located that the students may get
from ono to the other in ten minutes, but
that Is not the sole, nor the most Im
portant consideration relating to the or
ganization of university environment. The
student must, of course, be. brought Into
contact with the teacher, but it may be
well to remember while talking ot the log
with Mark Hopkins on one end and tho
student on the other, that the boy does
not spend all of his twenty-four hours
during four years, silting' on the log with
Mark Hopkins. Manv students are edu
cated more by their environment than by
their teachers. An ugly, inartlstlo en
vironment Is a hindrance to the best edu
cational work: Is It uosltlvely not simply
negatively bad.
The present location of the university
campus Is positively bad from the point
ot view of a beautiful environment. It Is
located next to the railroad yards of
Lincoln and in what Is not simply the
business seotion of the city, but what la
clearly destined to be the wholesale busi
ness section. It la bod enough now, but
It will be worse In the future. No matter
how many blocks may be added to the
campus on the east or on the north, the
badness of the looatton will still remain.
No matter how much these few acres
may be beautified, they will always re
main an oasis In a desert of rallrond
yards and business blocks. At the farm
the situation Is qulto different and every
thing indicates that It will always remain
qulto dirforcnt. When, some years ago,

PLATTSMOUTI I, Neb., Jan. 19.-tBpe-clal.)
When the carpenters working on
the H M. Boennlchsen building arrived
at the building this morning they were
and the first good building had been built,
1 went out for the first time to take a
look at tho location. I was o Impressed
with Its beauty and with the possibilities
It posawsed of a greater university cam
pus that 1 came back ronvlnced that
Prof. Bessoy was right. I am acquainted
with all tho campuses of the great uni
versities of this country and I believe
that we have an opportunity to develop
a campus at the farm that will be sur
passed by tow places In the country- If
we realize what an opportunity wo have
and take full advantage of It, we can
havo a campus hero a beautiful, perhaps
mora beautiful, than thoso of Oxford,
Chicago or Loland Stanford. And why
should we not have It? If a beautiful
environment Is a necessary Part of the
equipment of the university, why should
not the environment of the boys and glrla
In the University of Nebraska bo madu
as beautiful as that ot any university In
the country? Why should they go east
or west to find what they ought to be
able to find lioro? No ono will venture to
suggest thnt the state cannot afford It.
It cannot afford not to havo It.
A spacious compus, with buildings of
one style of architecture nnd material,
artistically grouped in the midst of
groves of trees, of shrubs and flowers,
with shaded walks, with statues and
fountains, would have such on educational
value for tho state that could hardly be
overestimated. The boys and girls, from
all parts of Nebraska, who had paseed
four years In suchenvlronment, would
go back to their homes with eyes opened
to the necessity nnd possibility of better
artistic surroundings. Houses and
grounds city streets and parkp, public
buildings, would all, In time, show the
Influences of the years passed on tho
beautiful campus at Lincoln. And thesa
benefits would be received not alone
by the well-to-do. Attractive dormitories
would house rich and poor alike, and
the poor student could sit and eat In a
dignified university hall Instead ot at a
lunch counter, enjoying a better and lers
expensive meal together with the com
panionship of his fellows.
No serious obstacle to removal Is found
In the motley group of buildings If they
can bo called a group on tho ajty campus.
Many of them should either bo aban
doned at once or must be abandoned In
the near future. Nebraska Hall was de
clared unsafe some years ago; the old'
main building cannot lost much longer,
and all the other buildings on the com
pus, with tho exception ot the physics
building", the administration building, the
new engineering and law buildings
worth together about $300,000 havo been
outgrown and must be replaced. Tho
whole plant on the city campus, ex
cluding the Temple, not paid for by the
state, Is not worth over $00,000, and the
most of It must be replaced tn tho near
future. Shall It bo replaced or shall a
new plant be built at the state farm?
Eventually, aa much money will have to
be put into buildings down town as at
the farm, and the land for campus cx
tention in the city must be purchased
at a high valuation. An equally good
group of buildings with an adequate set
ting will cost more down town than at tho
farm and the farm location will always
be the superior one.
