Amendment of President Roosevelt."
Tho Bun.remo court two years ago
held that university students, except In
certain caseB, had a right to exercise
their suffrages at the seat of the uni
versity. It Is tho duty of every Btudent
who Is qualified to do so, to cast a
vote, and by so doing help to make tho
government of his state what he would
The need of more space in the gen
eral reading room of the library is
growing more apparent every day. Ab
the weather becomes colder more stu
dents do their studying In tho library
rather than walk back to their rooms
between classes, or loaf about on the
campuB. During somo of the periods
in the forenoon a chair is at a premium
and many who would like to put in a
spare moment studying can not do so
because a place can not bo found.
Some of tho advanced students in
botany found Borne cardb a fow days
ago which wore printed eight years
ago on the occasion of tho celebration
of the quarter centennial of the uni
versity. These sot forth the facilities
in tho department at that time, and the
contrast Is quite pleasing. Then there
were forty-four compound microscopes,
now there aro eighty; thou tho her
barium contained forty thousand
plants, now there are about one hund
red thousand; than there were thirty
seven periodicals taken in the depart
ment, now that number is fully dou
bled; then there were ten lines of bo
tanical study, now there are more than
forty courses open ,to students; then
there w,ero about sixty students doing
university work in botany, now there
aro about three times that number.
Tho following Blgned article written
by the editors of the Junior Annual will
explain to the advertisers of tho

hold In the university. In the commun

have been "periodical." The field cov

R. A. M'NOWN.
It is evident that Nebraska will have
her hands full next month, if the In
dians, Kansas, Knox and Northwest
ern aro beaten, and It will take tho
hardest kind of work. At all events
tho people of Lincoln will have the
privilege of witnessing several con
tests of unusual excellence. The In
dians are playing better ball than they
did last year, and have already scored
twice on Illinois, one of the best teams
of the "Big Nine." They simply over
whelmed Missouri by a score of 40 to
0. Knox has an all star aggregation
and in causing all the big teams trou
ble. Although Chicago has by far the
best eleven that she has possessed
since '98, Northwestern gave her a
bad scare In spite of the fact that the
latter team has been peculiarly unfor
tunate in having her star players sent
to the hospital. Chicago was oit
played in the first half but managed to
score twice In the second. It Is gen
erally conceded that Noithwestern will
have a formidable team long before
Thanksgiving. Kansas always npears
at her best on Nebraska field, and is
stronger this year than last.
Class Athletics Awaken,
Class athletics are livening up among
tho girls. Much Interest is being

ture tour yesterday morning, well
pleased with the reception accorded
him at the places he visited. Ho says

proval. A choice will be made by the

greater knowledge and care, the choos
