Announcement of Major and
Minor N Grants Flayed
AGREE RULE IS GOOD
But Present Enforcement
Considered Unfair to
Announcement of a new system
of major arid minor awards to par
ticipants In varsity athletics Mon
day drew the fire of varsity foot
ball players, who criticized the an
nouncement of the new rule on the
grounds of expediency.
According: to an official letter
issued this morning by H. D. Glsh,
director of athletics, awards for
varsity sports, starting- with the
present football season, will be of
two sorts, major and minor letters.
Major letters for football will be
given only to those men who have
played more than 100 minutes in
three -games, while a player who
has been in any two games will
be given a minor letter.
The new rule, according to five
varsity squad members inter
viewed Monday, Is a good one, but
its issuance at the present time
was regarded by all of them as
unfair to the player who has seen
more than forty-five minutes serv
ice in games this year, and who
would have received a regular let
ter under the rule existing before
Still further ground for their
feeling, according to the players
interviewed, was the fact that Di
rector Glsh, in a talk at the Uni
versity club before the season
opened, said that some change was
likely, but that if any were to be
made for the present season, it
would be announced before the
first game. They were practically
unanimous in their feeling that
the change should not have been
made for the present season.
I think it is unfair to the man
who has played forty-five minutes
this year to deprive him of & reg
ular varsity letter," Frank Prucka,
Omaha, now playing his third year
of football, said. "The rule in it
self is good, but its issuance at
this time may cause some hard
feelings among those of the squad
who have played -just about
enough to earn a regular letter
under the old ruling."
Steve Hokuf Kicks.
His sentiment was echoed by
Steve Hokuf, end, playing his sec
ond year. "The man who has
played enough minutes to get his
letter and now sees that he won't
get a regular award is likely to
feel that there is some injustice
some place," the giant Crete youth
declared. "The rule is good, for

Large Number of Pictures
Needed, Editor of
URGES GET PHOTOS SOON
After a special conference with
Kansas City engravers 'over the
week-end, Kenneth Gammill, edi
tor of the Cornhusker, has an
nounced that a new and original
layout will be provided for pictures
in the fraternity and sorority sec
tions in the books this year while
the junior and senior pictures will
be provided with special borders.
"The makeup which has been
arranged for pictures in the frater
nity and sorority sections will re
quire a large number of photos
from each organization," the year
book editor said.
Reports from Hauck's and
Townsend's studios indicate that
there has been a material increase
in the number of student photo
graphic sittings over the week-end.
Only Short Time Left.
. With only eleven days left be
fore the studios will be closed to
all students who want pictures in
the Cornhusker, the yearbook staff
is continuing to call for appoint
ments. Special emphasis is bein
laid upon the junior and senior
sections in order that everyone
may be notified in plentj of time
before the sections are closed.
"We have had fair co-operation
from the student body," Gammill
asserted, "but there are still a
large number of students who
have failed to have photographs
taken. We are confident, however,
that these will be taken care of
before the Nov. 25 time limit ap
proaches." No Complicated Arrangements.
There is no complicated ar
rangement involved in making
studio appointments, according to
the yearbook editorial staff. Ordi

First it is green caps, then
overalls and aprons, and now mem

animal husbandry society on the
college of agriculture campus, are
compelling their pledges to carry
canes. Green enps are the univer

It is a new tradition, so the
Block and Bridle men proclaim.
Fourteen junior men, consequently,
are tucking walking sticks under
their arms until they become ini

moreover, must have ample sup

Initiation will be held in the

White, president of the club,
stated. Plans for carrying out the
new tradition will be further dis

Present plans are to provid'i
each member of the club with a
cane as an emblem of the society,
the canes to be kept by the mem
bers as they graduate. The canes
will be blaek and will have the
figure of either a bull's head or the
head of a hog as a handle.

R. O. T. C. officers at the Univer

"big parade" to be put on as a
part of the annual Lincoln observ
ance of Armistice day Tuesday.
For the first time in a number
of years, the campus army of
ficers, from the colonel down to
the battalion leaders will have a
chance to use those weighty spurs
on their boots because they are
all to be mounted on horses.
To some of the officers the ex
perience will be new but to one,
Major Alan G. Williams, Lincoln,
it will be an old, old' custom.
Here's the reason: Last week
when Williams learned of the
forthcoming "mounted parade" he
immediately got busy, chartered a
horse and indulged in daily and
sometimes semi-daily horseback
riding practices all by himself.
And now, he believes, he will be
able to show the public how easy
it is to ride a horse.
The entire R. O. T. C. in the uni

festivities, which are held in col

Conduct of All Train
Hun ui' faculty sponsors to

turning from Lawrence SalUiay
night failed dismally. Long be
fore the departure time or lbs
special coeds found seats in all of
the coaches and refused to move
to the back of the train" in the
coaches reserved for women.
Lack of sufficient seating spacs
on th- 'irt ii dded to the contu-
train. Many coeds terusea 10 leave
their scats unless they were as
sured seats in the women's sec
tions. For the first hour of tht
trip the train was a veritable bed
lam of confusion but order was
restored with both men and wom
en students in every car.
After the first half hour no at
tempt was made to force coeds to
the rear of the train.
Dean Harper Approves.
"I was very well satisfied with
the trip," said Dean Harper, as
sistant dean of student affairs,
yesterday concerning the conduct
of the students on the K. U. spe
cial train Saturday. "I have mads
every trip since 1924," he said,
"and have never been on one that
was any better."
Mr. Harper said that the ap
parent more crowded condition on
the return trip was probably due
to the fact that going down there
were always many in the aisles
and parading from one car to an
other, while on the return trip
most of the students settled down
As to the segregation of the men
and women, Mr. Harper said that
the scarcity of seats on the return
trip made it practically impossible
to carry out the plans.
Students Only. - -
In the opinion of the dean the
exclusion of outsiders from the
train or. the Kansas trip helped
much in fostering better behavior
nn the train. In other years, when
the trip was not under university
supervision, .students got much
blame f: r things done by outsiders
who made the trip, since the train
was run bv the railroad comoany
and Pen to anyone wishing to

Faculty sponsors were unani
mous in praimng the behavior of
Nebraska students on the trip to
Kansas. There were approxi
mate! 700 students on the return
trip including the tootball team
which enjoyed a restful trip in two
Pullman cars. The spirit evi-
denced on the trip to Lawrence
was noticeably lacking on the re
turn journey to Lincoln.
