Apathetic is the proper word with
which to describe the condition of
society in these closing days of
Lent. The approach of Holy Week
and Easter, . have doubtless had
some influence in repressing any ten
dency to gayety in social circles.
Whether Easter will be followed by any considerable movement is
not very certain. But Lincoln has usually enjoyed a brief season of
social activity in the epring, and we believe that this season will
prove no exception. There are enough weddings in prospect em
bracing a period commencing in April and extending into July, to
give life to the spring season. The month of April will bring a few
other functions of more or less interest. ,

public loss in the death of Mrs. E. D. C. Menzendorf, for nine years
a member of their body. Her kindliness of spirit, her devotion to
her pupils, her almost unexampled patience, and her loyalty to the
institution in all its interests, made her work from the first effective
a nd strong and her influence felt throughout all circles. Her en
deavor was always for the good of her pupils, never for personal
praise or profit. Caring nothing for show, never discouraging bu t
always appreciating earnest effort, she was never ashamed of honest
attainments, however humble. Being personally without prejudices,
considerate of others opinions, charitable to others faults, she en
deared herself even to many not known to her. Beyond obligation
and often beyond reason the servant of the university and the pub
lic, she was a model of the faithful teacher whose example will not
be soon forgotten. The teachers of the university would also give
expression of their deep sympathy with the husband and the father
in their great affliction.
