Chancellor E. Benjamin Andrews of
the University of Nebraska tendered
his resignation, to take effect January
The board of regents voted to accept
the resignation. No suggestion as to
his probable successor was offered.
The resignation of Chancellor An

health, Dr. Andrews tentatively resign

him to remain.
Since then his health has so improved
that his stay as head of the school was
supposed to be indefinite. So . far as
known there has been no friction be
tween the chancellor and the regents.

The Nebraska Lighting Company
last night gave an exhibition of the
comparative lighting qualities of the
Houlevard gas lamp, the arc lamp
and the incandescent lamp. The ex
hibition took place at the corne r of
Seventh and Vine streets and was
given for the instruction of the; mem
bers of the council and the public
generally. Tse result was a mass
of varied opinions some of the spec
tators favoring the arc while several
favored the incandescent and a great

promise to refrain from the use of liquor
or. the frequenting of saloons. Speck's
conduct for several months past was
so good that.it had a favorable weight
with the judge. He will have to pay

Miss Ktliel Leyda Surprised. ..
A very pleasant surprise party
was given to Miss Ethel Leyda last
Saturday night by a number of her
young friends, the occasion being the
eighteenth birthday of the young
lady. In order to make the surprise
complete the young lady had been
invited away to a neighbor's for
supper and during h"r absence th'
guests came in and took possession.
For the occasion the rooms of the
Leyda residence had boenhan I.-ei.i- ly
decorated in red aurl whin- chrys
anthemums for the table de.-oratious.
When the young lady returnel home
she found her unexpected guests i:i
full possession of the house and her
surprise was indeed complete.
The evening was spent in pro
gressive hearts at which the- party
had exciting games. The king priz--;
fell to the lot of Miss Helen Spits,
who played the finest game- of th
series while the consolation prize
went to Esther Larson.
After the games there was served
by ; Mrs. Leyda a ve ry elegant three
course luncheon which the party
demonstrated its appreciation of in
no : mistakable manner. Punch was
served ; for the party by Miss Ellen
Leyda and little Max Asernissen. The
party did not depart until a late hour
when all extended their congratula
tions to the happy young lady, and
wished her many raone milestones In"
