A Kii I n the University of Nebraska
i.ns been culkd upon for one of its in
stiiKtorH. It is hoped, however, that
Cnptnin Smoke will not accept the of
fer from Yale. While the students of
the university are happy to hear of the
monition of their commandant, yet
they would be equally sorry to lose so
elHi lent an ofllcer. In liis short serv
ice at tho head of the military depart
ment lie lias won the deep respect of
every cadet and student with whom
he has come in contact. From a feel
ing of apathy in military affairs Cap
tain Smako lias brought about an In
tense Interest on the part of the stu
dents and lias raised very noticeably
the standard of the department.
No salaries will be paid for this
work, but several students can obtain
good rooms at the settlement house In
exchange for services rendered.
It Is hoped that several will volun
teer to assist In this work which will
not only benefit the neighborhood, but
also give a valuable experience to tho
workers. This Is the philanthropic
and missionary work of tho univer
sity, and it ought to appeal to all con
nected with the university who can
give their services for tills cause. All
who fe 1 that they would like to assist
in any of tho lines of work above sug
gested, will kindly confer with one of
tile following: Professor A. I,. Candy,
Professor A. Ross Hill, Professor W. O.
I.. Taylor, Professor H. W. Caldwell
or C. K. Prevey.
REV. DOHL AT CONVOCATION.
Rev T M. Hahl spoke to the univer
sity students at convocation Wednes
day morning on homo missionary work
in Nebraska. The Norwegian senate
of whiih he is a member is almost a
half entury old, having grown from
an Insignificant body to one of great
impoitance. At the time of Its organ
Izbatlon it consisted of seven members.
Norwegians and Danes. Now it com
prises 300 ministers and about 000 con
gregations, besides numerous mission
Rev. Dahl lias boon traveling for the
past fourteen years in the interest of
this work. The congregations in Ne
braska are not very large, tho Ger
man Lutherans having the larger con
gregations, their ministers numbering
over one hundred. Rev. Dahl Is often
obliged to speak in school houses where
at times his congregations are not very
largo. He said that he had spoken to
one which was composed of only two
lone listeners, yet this does not dis
courage him for he believes it his duty
to do so. He travels yearly from
twelve to fifteen thousand miles.
GLEE CHIP ELECT OFFICERS.
The glee club and chorus met last
night in Memorial hall and formed a
permanent organization. As a consti
tution was adopted at a former meet
ing no more was necessary In that way.
About thirty appeared to show some
interest In tho proceedings. R. T. Hill,
temporary chairman, called the meet
ing to order. On election his place
was taken by D. D. Stuhl, who was
elected President of the organization.
Mr. Stuhl has been interested in such
a movement and is eminently fitted
for the office. He sings second base.
N. .1. Elliott was duly elected to the
olllee of secretary. Mr. Elliott is a
baritone singer. Robert T. Hill was
chosen to at t as business manager for
the i lub for next year. The following
men were appointed as a committee to
work up interest and get more men to
the meeting of the chorus: Horace
Sherman, chairman; Doane Powell,
Cornell, DIerks and Doubt. It was
definitely announced that the chorus
would meet for regular singing next
Tuesday evening at seven o'clock in
A CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS.
The college settlement house is Hear
ing completion. It is confidently ex
pected now that sufllcient funds will
come In to finish and furnish the
house so that work may begin at the
very opening of the next year of uni
With this prospect in view we wish
to call for volunteers from the faculty
and students of tho university who will
conduct class and club work at the set
tlement beginning next fall. Workers
will he needed for conducting evening
classes In the ordinary branches of
the graded school; also in manual
training, cooking, sewing, clay model
ing, drawing and music. .-Leaders will
be needed for clubs for boys and girls.
Some help can be given by taking
charge of the reading room during
certain evenings of the week.
CAPTAIN SMOKE HAS OFFER.
Tho student body and especially the
cadets have been distrurbod since the
publication of the news of a possible
chance for commandant Smoke to go
to Yale. It has developed that the
captain has offers to go to that school
and will meet the Yale officials in the
near future. Hut on the other hand
he assuies the university thut this
does not nuun that lie will leave.
Merely that this move is under consideration.
Captain Smoke expresses a desire to
remain in Nebraska as long as circum
stances aVe as pleasant as they have
been and now are. One objection about
the position at Yale is that he would
only be required to give a lecture
There are no cadets In that Insti
tution. Mr. Smoke prefers the more
active duties as he finds them at Ne
braska. The university administration
has been very kind and the cadets have
been very enthusiastic In the way In
which they have taken up the work.
