The univorBlty band on dross parade
hftB been the Hubject of considerable
comment. The concerts which have
l)een given at convocation have always
been well received, yet the music fur
uished by the band on dreHH parade
Ih not deserving of the 'same pralHe.
and it Ib Bafo to Hay that it compares
very unfavorably with former bands.
The only plausible excuse for this
Hee.mB to lie ih the fact that an undue
amount of attention is given to eon
(crt music with an absolute indiffer
ences to marches, which should bo the
chief music of a military band Buch
as this should be. Though concort
music may appeal to the greater part
of tho student body let the band be
able to do that which is expected of It
before It taken up concert work.
A very small but delighted audience
listened to President Droppora of tho
University of South Dakota ob he
spoke on Monday evening at tho Uni
versity on tho Bubject of Missionary
and Educational work In Japan.
President Droppers' close association
with the field In question, and hlB con
tact with the people of Japan during
the time of hlB identification with one
of her most prominent educational cen
ters, makes him a particularly Interest
ing Bpeaker on tho subject. He pleased
his audience particularly with hlB de
scriptions of tho life of Japan; of tho
wonderful possibilities and of what has
already come to that progressive country.
Tho seniors held an enthusiastic
meeting yesterday afternoon. A num
ber of Important questions relative to
class events at the close of tho year
were discussed and from the interest
shown it Is very probable that a
marked advance will be made upon
former class events.
Chairman O'Gara of the Ivy day
committee reported that various plans
were being considered to make this
event of a kind that will oxcell any
thing heretofore attempted. The time
has not yet been definitely arranged,
yet it is expected that it will take place
in the latter part of May. It is very
probable that a part of the day will be
set aBlde in order to give the seniors
aft that they may want in tho matter
of tlmo. Chairman Clinton of the class
dinner committee gavo tho cheering
nowB that arrangements for the dinner
wero being concluded and that from
present indications It promised to be
one of the most successful Innovations
which the clasB haw over made. The
dinner will be given at the Llndell
some time during examination week
A number of invited guests will be
present. A liflt of toasts is now being
Manager Teach of the basketball
team made his final report. Strange to
soy, the team closed the season with
a surplus rather than a deficit In tho
treasury. A number of other reports
were made showing that the clasB
is ery busy preparing for the last
month in the university.
A number of suggestions were made
as to the best way In which to leave
a fitting memorial. That a bust of Mc
Klnley placed In the library would be
the most fitting tribute that the class
could leave was very eloquently set
forth by one member. Others believed
that the class should in some way show
Us appreciation of the services of Miss
Smith as registrar. It was finally de
cided to place an oil painting of her in
the library building.
Provision at this meeting was also
made for the customary class tax to
defray the expense of this and similar
undertakings of tho class.
Negotiations between Iowa and Ne
braska for a football game next fall
have been declared off. At a meeting
between Managers Engle and Me
Cutcheon In Omaha some time ago the
former mado a proposition which was
presented to tho Iowa athletic board.
At its last meeting tho board passed
upon It and decided not to accept the
Tho proposition made by Manager
Engle was for a game at Iowa City on
November 15, the date on which the
Knox game is scheduled to be played.
According to the terms offered, Iowa
was to pay whatever expenses might
be Incurred from Nebraska's failure to
keep the date with Knox. This Item
was incorporated in the proposition be
cause this date had been offered Iowa
before it had been filled and Iowa re
fused It. Later when tho Hawkeyes
showed symptoms of wanting a game,
it was decided to allow the date to be
changed provided they paid the ex
pense of making the cnange.
Students will be grieved to learn of
the death at Creede, Col., last Sunday
of Frank Shimer father of C. E. Shimer
of tho baseball team. The death 1b
supposed to have been due to heart
failure. Mr. Shimer on his visit to the
university last fall impressed all who
met him as being a man of great re
finement and the students therefore ex
tend to the son their deepest sympathy.
It Is very probablo that C. E. Shimer
will not return to school again this

If yon will look into the history of bicycle selling during the past
three ears you will see the justice of this observation. The enor
mous increase in the sale of Recycles every year in thiscity proves that
the bicycle is no longer "in it" as a competitor. The reason why the
Racycle has proved so popular is because it's built right. The pull of
the chain and sprocket is between the bearings. We have a full s'.ock
of 1902 Racycles. Several improvements. See us at once.
