Late Registrar Passes Away
Early Friday Morning.
Miss Ellen Smith, win Hpori the
larger part of her active life In the
University of NobranKn. died yestorday
morning at 1:30 at lior home on U
street. For thr past year Miss Hmitr.
has been 111, but m one believed that
tho end was near. The cause of her
death probably came from a cancer
that developed about one vear and n
half ago. An operation wag performed
which promised success, but an abscess
was the final outcome. In hopes of
getting relief, Miss Smith spent a port
of last Bummer in Beatrice, where n
course of medical treatment was con
ducted. Miss Smith was born in a little town
in northeastern Ohio, attended Hills
dale College, Michigan, and took her
bachelor's and master's degrees from
that Institution. She was employed at
Hillsdale for a time as Instructor and
was called to Lincoln by Chancellor
Fairfield In 1877. For several years
she taught Latin and mathematics In
the University. Later she was put in
charge of tho library, as attendant.
This was before the offices were dif
ferentiated and registration was con
ducted in the library. When the office
of registrar was finally created, in
1882, Miss Smith took charge and faith
fully discharged her duties as registrar
until about one year ago, when she ro
slgned. After her resignation, Bhe was
retained in the office as consulting
registrar until tho end of last school
year. As registrar she was known as
"Ma" Smith and was sometimes called
unkind, but those who learned to know
her found her a true and loving friend.
Her unexpected death touches deeply
tho sympathy of both the students and
alumni of the University, a large num- i
bor of whom knew her very well. Miss J
Smith had no relatives in Lincoln.
Sho leaves a sister and niece In Ohio
and a nephew In Chicago. Tho
nephew arrived last night and will re
move the remains to the old home of
the deceased in Ohio.

List of Debaters Who Are to
Honors In Interstate debate at the
University of Nebraska for 1903 were
conferred yesterday afternoon upon the
twelve men who will represent the
University at Colorado Springs, at
Lawrence, Kan., and at Lincoln
against Missouri. The competition this
year was close and hard, and the com
mittee, upon whom devolved the re
sponsibility of Judging further after
the squad was selected at the prelimin
ary debates the first of February, has
taken its time In forming it Judgment.
During tho three weeks there have been
three or four other debates.

The three men from last year's vic
torious teams have reputations to
maintain. Mr. Doubt's well-remembered
dissection of the Kasson French
treaty in the Kansas debate was a
knock-out blow to the genial and
worthy sportsmen from Kansas; Mr.

Colorado debate the Pike's Peakers will

In regard to the prospects for tho
year, Professor Fogg said last night
that he was surer that tho teams would
get Borne stiff and practical training
than he was that they would win in
tho Intercollegiate sport episodes of the
regular disciplinary work of the year;
that on political questions especially
there is large uncertainty In the judges,
for there Is always difficulty in securing
three unprejudiced. Judicially-minded
men who are at the same time able
rapidly to follow a close, recondite
economic argument and .weigh the evi
dence accurately. This difficulty is al
ready facing the debating board In ar
ranging for the Nebraska-Colorado de
bate, in which Nebraska maintains that
trusts are not Inimical to public wel
fare. Notices were posted last evening re

9 o'clock this morning in U. 309, and
tho Kansas team at 10:30 o'clock.

Nebraska maintained her traditional
standard by defeating the city Y. M.
C. A. basket-ball team last night by
tho decisive Bcore of 33 to 20." The
game was played In the University
armory. Only once were the Chris
tians in the lead and that was when
Hagenslck made the first score of the
game by throwing a foul. The Unl
has not played together for two weeks
and plainly showed tho lack of prac
tice. Besides, it seemed an unlucky
evening for them, as time after time
the ball would refuse to enter the
basket and bound away only to be re
turned. Tho team work on both sides
was about equal. The game was fast
and spirited. The crowd was not as
large as was expected, only about
eighty being present.
The first half ended 20 to 14 in favor
of the Uni and in tho Becom. the Y. M.
C. A. only made (1 more, while the
wearers of the scarlet and cream piled
up 13. After Hagenslck had begun the
scoring, Benedict started tho good
work for Nebraska with a long goal
from tho side lino. Hammel threw a
goal which did not count. In the mean
time Ferguson had added two points
for the University. Hlltner fouled and
Hagenslck added one point. After sev
eral exchanges Elliot found the bas'ket
and tho score stood G to 4. The Y. M.
C. A. undertook to brace, but Elliot
soon followed up with another goal.
FerguBon repeated the dose. Hagen
slck came to the rescue for his team
ami enlarged their score by a goal.
Captain Hewitt threw two fouls In suc
cession and the score stood In the ratio
of 2 to 1. Hewitt throw a goal and
Fields got even by doing likewise.
Ferguson threw two goalB. Fields and
Hewitt each threw a goal; the former
soon threw another. Time was called
with tho score 20 to 14 In Nebraska's
In the second half the Y. M. C. A.
showed determination to win, but to
no avail. Hagenslck made all the
points for his team, throwing one goal
and four fouls, whllo every Nebraska
man helped increase the score. This
half was really a repetition of the first.
Benedict threw another long goal from
the center of the field, Hewitt threw
two fouls. Hlltner and Ferguson one
goal and Elliott a goal and three fouls.
Between halves the second 'varsity
and Y. M. C. A. teams battled for
honors. The latter was victorious by
a score of 15 to 12. i i.e first half end
ed 6 to 4 In favor of the college boys.
This 1b the second time the second five
has lost to the second Y. M. C. A. In
the second half the visitors took a de
cided brace and put up a much faster
game than at first. The University did
not throw a single foul and made the
same number of points each half. For
tho Y. M. C. A. Walsh made seven
points, Wilhelm six and Hawley two.
For the University, Luddon made four
points, Myers four, Noyes two and
For the first team, Elliot made nine
points, Hewitt eight, Ferguson oight,
Benedict six and riiltner two.
For the Y. M. C. A., Hagenslck made
twelve points, Fields six and Hammel
two. Six points were made on rouis

The meeting of the regents of tho
University, Monday afternoon, was an
Important one, not only from tho Uni
versity view point, but also from that
of the general public. Tho matter of
greatest Importance considered by tho
regents referred to tho merging of tho
School of Music with tho University
proper. Tho committee previously ap
pointed to look into tho matter of af
filiation reportod, presenting a plan for
the purchase of tho School of Music.
The plan contemplates securing legisla
tive consent to the creation of a float
ing debt of not more than $50,000 for a
term of ten years. This debt, If this
plan Is carried out, will not Increaso
the coHt of the University to tho stato,
but will be paid from tho anntial In
come of the music school, a part of
the proceeds being used for salaries of
Instructors and running expenses. After
the floating debt shall havo boon ro
moved, the school will be conducted
and maintained as another department
of tho University. Tho executive offi
cers of the University were Instructed
to proceed with tho purchase and to
make temporary arrangements for car
rying out tho work of the music de
partment to tho closo of tho present
year. Mr. Wlllard Kimball, It Is un
derstood, will continue as manager of
the Bchool, but as a salaried official of
the University. It Is thought tho merg
ing of tho conservatory Into tho Uni
versity will give tho school greater op
portunities than it has ever had and
that under tho influence of Improved
conditions it can be made one of tho
strongest schools of ILb kind In tho
woBt. The merger has mot with no op
position and It Is believed the assent
of the legislature will be readily ob
tained. Besides the proposition to purchase
the School of Music, and tho granting
of diplomas and the conferring of de
grees upon twenty-five seniors, several
matters of minor Importance were con
sidered by the regents. Dr. F. D. Heald
was appointed to fill tho vacancy In
tho department of botany occasioned by
the resignation of Dr. Metcalf, who has
accepted a chair In the University of
South Carolina. A leave of absence
was granted to Professors Lees and
Lyon, who expect to study abroad dur
ing tho summer and a part of next
year. The titles and professorships of
Greek and Lntln were changed to
"Greek history and literature" and
"Roman history and literature," re
spectively. Several appointments were
made to tho staff of instruction of the
medical department, B. B. Davis being
made a member of tho faculty of tho
medical college at Omaha. The ques
tion referring to greenhouse facilities,
which has been agitated considerably
at tho University, was taken up and
referred to a committee consisting of
Regent Ernst, Jt-rofessors Bessey and
Emerson, and Acting Superintendent
Feo, who will report at the next meet
ing of the regents. '
