Now that politics lias beumi to
assume sumo tanuihlo form throueh
uti the state it is also appearing
in the student body. The students
as a rule do nnl enter or take any Irn
pnrtant part in sucli alTairs before
tho regular canclldates have been
named by their resuective parties
However, when a manwho has been,
at some time or other, connect en
with this university is mentioned
for a prominent ofllce, they use
their influence in his favor.
Especially when tho man so men
tlonen is a member of our faculty,
the student Interest Is itensified.
The mention a few days ago in the"
city papers or Hon. H. H. Wilson as
a desirable candlnato for p.over'uor
has set many or the students, especi
ally tho law striirlents to work in Is
behair. While Mr. Wilson has not yet
announced himself as a candidato ror
this ofllce his friends aro very activo
In Jjjioir desire to secure his nomina
tion. Mr. Wilson is one of tho In
structors In the eolleuo of law where
he Is recognized as a man of excep
tional ability and highly respected by
all wlio havo met or had dealings
with him.
The University Podaguuloul Club
will hold a meeting next Thursday
evening at 7:110 in tho Y.W.C.A.

club will bo addressed by C. S. Al
len,'8(5, ex-president, and at present
a meiuber, of tho Lincoln board for
education. Ills subject will be
"Personal characteristics that in

point of a member of tho school

To tho collection of "Grimes of
All Nations" deposited In tho Mu
seums of tho UnlTorsltv of Ponnsyl
Tanla, has rccontly been added a num
ber of tho most popular games played
by tho people of tho PillpDlnos. Judg
ing from theho exlbits. the panics
played by the Filipinos do not differ
much from those of more cultivated
nations, althouuh some of them may
havo had their origin In eastern
countries. Among the exhibits nnd
uames most commonly used by tho
uatlres for uambllng is that known
as "Putl-puli-itim, ' which is a dice
game consisting of two wooden dice,
each marked with a single dot on
each face, two red. two white, and
two black. The players lay their
stakes on a cardboard with three
divisions, marked red, blue and
black respectively, the player putting
tho monoy on tho division
selected by him. Thedlco are thrown
and If tho colored spot of the dice
turns up on tho colored dl Msion
plaved, tho player receives double
the amount he bet; and if two spots
of the same color drop on tho division
of tho satm; color, the plaver gets
four times tho amount ho bet.
Another gamo equally popular
among the Filipinos is one known as
"Damn," which consists of a small
wooden table inscribed with a dia
gram similar to a checker board. A
lottery known as "Rlpa." is also a
favorite among the natives of the
more thickly populated district.
Tho paraphernalia for this game Is a
little more complicated than the
others, consisting of forty little
wooden hemispheres, each contain
ing a number corresponding with
the numbers on forty cards. These
cards aro sold to players, tho hemis
pheres aro deposited in a laro oottle
and thrown out one by one and tl 0
playor whoso card number is first
thrown out twicewins the pot.
One of the most curious of the
I'hllipDino exhibits at tho Museum
is a largo boat-shaped log of wood
containing fourteen holes, in each
ono of which there are seven shells.
Tho gamo Is thought to be of Arabic
origin and is rather complicated.
Another exhibit closely resembles
our 111 odor n pool ana billiard tables
and nails, ana is played not unlike
our own game.
Tho collection Includes numerous
ither interesting ana novel games.
among wich may bo mentioned
"pungitan," a game of shooting with
a shell at a smaller shell placed in a
ring; "tabita,"a board gamo, playea
with a diagram and a disk, which is
flipped In the air" cara cruz" and
"biraohapa," head-and-tall games:
"prlnmola," played with a hexagonal
top dio, spun in a saucer, and a card
with six divisions; "tapan," aboard
gamo, in which six round pieces of
wood form tho men; "oapona," which
consists in counting off small sholls in
fours and bottlng on tho remainder
and Is identlfiea with the Chinese
game of fan-tan; "ohabiqul." a lot
tery game, played with a woodon
tablet with painted numbors from
ono to twelve, ancTaborresponaing
number of numbered oaras;
"Ian so," a puzzle gamo made of
bamboo and a football mado of rat
tan Is also among tho collection:
tho game, hoover, as played by tho
Filipinos does not rosemblo the groat
American college sport.
