The epidemic of weddings which is
woiking such havoc in the homes of
Omaha, Des Moines and other neigh
boring cities, is taking a harmless form
in Lincoln. A sort of matrimonial van
street in order to escape the embarrass
ment of audible criticism of their ap
pearance from fraternity members sit
ting on the porch, is a credit neither to
the university nor to the town. In older
oloid has prevailed since the severe at- fraternity chapters of established rep-
tack last June, bat the more dangerous
phase of the disease has not appeared.
How many incipient cases are existing
In the homes of Lincoln's smart set, it
is impossible to state. Germs of this
peculiar disease are especially active
during the vacation months, and the
air of the seashore and mountain re
gions renders summer tourists particu
larly susceptible to infection. WeekB
and sometimes months elapse between
the exposure and the full development
of the disease; hence by holiday season
our city may be the scene of a matri
monial epidemic in its worst form.
Last Saturday afternoon the Lincoln
high school football team won some
kind of a victory over a more or lees
formidable opponent. To celebrate the
momentous event the overworked high
school bell was obliged to put in several
extra hours of hard labor in the effort
to convince our citizens that the stu
dents had done something which was a
source of satisfaction to themselves,
though a matter of profound indiffer
ence to the majority of Lincoln resi
dents. Making a great noise about a
small matter Ib an unfailing sign of
youth. Another symptom of extreme
youthfulness is the lack of common
courtesy and consideration of other
people's feelings which is the most
prominent characteristics of a bell-ringing
panic like that of Saturday night.
It is a matter of regret rather than of
gratification to citizens with normal
ears and nerves when the high school
students are winners in any contest
The deafening and nerve racking per
formance which follows every victory
more than counter-balances the natural
pride which would otherwise be felt in
our high school's achievement. Cour
tesy is a quality which never fails to
characterize true sportsmanship. Loy
alty to party or class or football team
is indispensable to success, but this
partisanship often becomes aggressive
and ignores the rights of disinterested
citizens, too frequently also expressing
itself in actual rudeness to the oppon
ents. The University of Michigan
made a fine reputation throughout the
west last year by its courteous treat-
utation such rudeness would not bo
tolerated. In this as in other cases of
impoliteness, youth and ignorance and
lack of innate refinement are plainly
Miss Alice Roosevelt, the oldest
daughter of the President, will arrive
in Washington the latter part of this
month. By the date of her arrival the
thirty days of official mourning will
have expired; however, there will be no
official functions given by the President
before the New Year's reception, after
which they will be resumed with the
usual regularity. Society in Washing
ton is not always regulated by the cus
toms of the White House, and after
noon teas and receptions will be in
dulged in by the young members of the
official set after the first of November.
It is expected that Miss Roosevelt will
make her first appearance in Washing
ton society at these informal functions.
Her formal debut, however, will not
occur until next year, as it will take
place at a reception at the White House.
In the interim she will receive callers
with Mrs. Roosevelt, and will really
participate in the social life of Wash
ington before her formal presentation.
The marriage of Mies Helen Morton
daughter of Hon. Levi P. Morton, for
mer vice president of the United States,
to Count Boston de Perigord, son of the
Duke of Talleyrand-Perigord, took place
last Saturday at St. Mary's Roman
Catholic church in London, England.
The witnesses of the marriage were the
bride's cousin, F. Grand d' Hauteville,
and Mr. W. C. Eustis, third secretary
of the United States embassy, for the
bride, and Baron de Seiliiere and Count
Louis de Perigord, for the groom.
Over one hundred members of the
Matinee Musicals attended the opening
reception given Monday afternoon by
the president, Mrs. D. M. Butler. A
very enjoyable musical program was
given by Mrs. Will Owen Jones and
Mrs. Holyoke, with Mrs. P. V. M. Ray
mond as accompanist. Mrs. Jones'
numbers were "Fruelingsrauschen" and
"March Grotesque," by Siuding, with
ment of visiting teams. After the Iowa MacDowell's "Song of the Sua," as an
team had won its great victory in De
troit and the corn-huakers had gone
home to celebrate, the yellow and the
blue-were cheered as lustily as their
own colors, and for no other reason
than that the Michigan players acted Following the program

Throughout the year visiting teams in
Ann Arbor were given rousing recep
tions, and all good plays were applaud
ed. The least sign of rowdyism was
promptly frowned down, and the uni
versity gained a reputation for cour
tesy which is worth more than the win
encore. Mrs. Holyoke sang "A Mes
sage to Phyllis," by Gilbert, and "Sere
nade to Juanita" by Jouberti, kindly
repeating one verse of the "Serenade"
in response to an enthusiastic recall

Mrs. Jones and Mrs. Holyoke. The re
