Loavo a Fitting Memorial With Impres-
Biyo Osromonies in Memorial
Hall. Prizes Given
In spite of (ho fact that Director
l.oveland sent around a driz.ling rain
which began shortly after one o'e loi k
and continued all afternoon, the se
niors celebrated their Iy day in gala
style last Wednesday afternoon. Ow
ing to the unexepee ted ( hange in the
weather the preparations whit h had
been made for a platform with all its
decorations near the library building
were all In ain. The seniors, how
ever, were equal to the occasion and
soon repaired to .Memorial hall where
hasty decorations were made. The
program thus being ghen within had
to be varied somewhat, the iy being
planted in the rain by a committee.
By two o'clock the hall was filled
with students and their friends, though
doubtless many were Kept away by
the rain which continued to fall. Short
ly after two o'clock the university
band, under the directorship of Mr.
Hamill, rendered a very pretty pro
duction which won a hearty applause.
ihe Beniors then sang their class song
with band accompaniment. The song
was written expressly for the occasion
by Miss Clare McPheo.
President Harbor then made a few
introductory remarks on the origin
of Ivy day in the university, and its
real significance to the seniors. Mr.
Kellogg then followed with an original
poem which had also been written for
this occasion. In presenting the Ivy
day orator, the president said that it
was fitting that Mr. F. K. Nielson had
been chosen, for it was to him that
the president of the class of 11)01 had
presented the trowel with the under
standing that lie use his influence to
see that the class of '02 observe the
day. This he had done, and as recog
nition for his services he had been hon
ored. Mr. Nielson spoke on the true
meaning of university life with all its
pleasures. He discussed at length the
significance of college spirit as was
evidenced by the desire of the senior
class to leave a suitable living memor
ial before their departure from the
university. The address was consid
ered a Bplendid effort and appreciated
by all.
The ivy having been planted with
duo ceremony, President Harbor then
called upon President Black of the ju
nior class to whom he presented the
trowel with which the ivy was planted
with a special request that he use his
Influence to see that his class would
observe Ivy day next year. President
Black responded in a very neat ad
dress In which he commended the work
of the seniors and promised that the
juniors would, do likewise.
The. distribution of prizes which fol
lowed was one of tho most entertain
ing parts of the program, and was
doubtless the host that baa ever been
attempted along this line. Mr. Horn
in his humorous way, called upon the
different members of the class who had
been selected aa the recipients of the
gifts, and proBented the following. A
mirror to Miss Parks, for having ex
colled In beauty; a mirror was also
given to Mr. Vobb for being richly
blessed by nature; Mr. Garrett, a harp,
as a recognition for his musical abil
ity, Mr. Sage, a shaving mug. while
Mr Milliard was ghen a spade sym
bolic of his industry.
At the conclusion of the program
the seniors repaired to the armory
where one of the most enjoyable times
of the year was had. (James of all
Kinds were played as well as dancing
by those who preferred The senior
c lass desires to express its thanks to
Professor Wilson and the university
band and especially to Mr. Hamill for
assisting in making tho program successful.
The annual track meet with Kansas
which was to have taken place next
PanHellenic Dance!
I Tonight.
Saturday, has been called off. A mes
sage was received from the manager
of the team to cancel the date This '
was followed by a letter saying that
the Kansas track team was in bin h a
demoralized condition that It would bo
of no use whatever to c ome to Ne
braska. In the meet with Missouri
last Saturday the team was almost
snowed under, and should It come to
ie with the track men of Nebraska
it would, in all probability, receive a
worse drubbing. Therefore in order
that the management here may not
lose any money by having the team
come here the date has been called off.
JuBt why the Kansas team is In such
a poor condition for track athletics
is not exactly known. In part It is at
tributed to the fact that there is no
suitable gymnasium at Kansas univer
sity. The men have also been with
out a trainer during the year. Ac
cording to the letter received very lit
tle is looked for in the way of a team
for next year, and it is aflked that the
annual meet for next season be also
called off. Just what will be done re
garding the contract calling for a
game next year ia not yet known.
Nebraska is very anxious to meet Kan
sas as these meets have always proved
one of the main features of the athletic
Gives an Interesting Disoussion of Reoont
Legislation by Congress.
Many Important
Professor Ross spoke yesterday
morning on the recent and pending
legislation of congress. He took up the
different bills in particular and then
enlarged upon their provisions nnd
The Chinese exclusion act Is one of
the most important acts of congress,
said Dr. Ross. Under the former law
all officers, travelers, students, mer
chants wore allowed in tho country.
The sennte has refused to act on the
limitation because it is an unfriendly
act. All will be treated alike.
Tho oleomargarine bill Is one of no
small consequence, as this question
has been an unending basis for dis
cussion for a long tune A reduction
has been made from two to one-half
a cent duty per pound When the prod-
net is colored an additional duty of
ten cents per pound is levied to make
up for difference In cost of butter and
this product.
The permaneaL census bureau bill Is
one of the groHpst Importance, nnd Is
what the scientific men and stnticians
hae been begging for for a long time.
1 he irrigation bill Is of utmost Import
ance to the western states in partic
ular, 'i .10 expense of Irrigation will
be met by the proceeds from the sales
of public lands in sixteen western
There are other bills before congress
which are of the greatest Importance.
Among them Ib the bill which has
passed the house, but not the senate
for election of senators by popular
vote. Another bill is for the admission
of New Mexico, Arizona and Oklahoma
as new states. The ship Bubsldy bill
and the army reorganization bill are
receiving considerable attention. Free
rural mail delivery has been placed on
the salary baBis. The Balariea have
been fixed at a maximum of $G00.
The question of the government of
the Philippines is one of interest
among legislators. The local govern
ment will be extended with the grow
ing condition. The Cuban reciprocity
measures bring up the tariff questions.
The Introduction of Cuban sugar has
been opposed by tho Biigar men of UiIb
country, who Insist that an open mar
ket will destroy their business. The
Necaragua canal bill occupies a very
prominent position and is coming in
for a great share of the present leg
islation. TENNIS TODAY.

The rain Wednesday was a source
of great disappointment to many who
expected to attend the Highland Park
