NEW SENIOR SOCIETY.
A Class Organization to be Known
as "The Innocents."
For some time there have been ru
mors afloat to the effect that a senior
society would be organized In the Uni
versity of Nebraska, following the
same general lines of senior organiza
tions in eastern colleges, notably Har
vard, Yale, Dartmouth and Princeton.
It was learned yesterday that the per
fection of such an organization is al
ready an accomplished fact. Several
seniors have been working on the Idea
ior some weeks. They received part of
their inspiration from an idea that has
had a vague existence for years past
in the minds of a few faculty members
and University alumni. Roscoe Pound
urged tho formation of such an or
ganization four or five years ago, on
the grounds that the very purpose of
its existence, If It copied eastern ideals,
was to advance University Interests
at every possible point; to furnish a
compact corps of harmonious workers,
where college spirit and enthusiasm
might be generated; to give a body of
men who would be pledged to put their
shoulders to the wheel in all Univer
sity undertakings; to be a guiding
central body to lead in those things
that fall in tho University of Nebraska,
because, being left to the student body
In general, tho old maxim applies,
''What is everybody's business is no
Chancellor Andrews has given his
approval to the organization, after an
examination of its constitution, part
of which is given below. Faculty mem
bers who are in sympathy with the
Idea and are giving their assistance feel
that this organization, drawn as It is
from all colleges and social claBBes In
the University, will serve as a long
needed unifying element, since tho
present arrangement of courses is not
conducive to class spirit and tends to
leave the student at graduation almost
aB Ignorant of tho powers and pur
poses of his fellow classmen as when
Probably one of the most meritori
ous features of this senior society Is Its
plan of electing alumni members from
tho different years, back to tho first
clasB that graduated. This election has
already been made and almost all or
tho alumni who have done work In the
outside world, work of which their
alma mater Is proud, are now on the
senior society alumni list. The pres
ence of a half dozen of tho men who
have been elected from previous years
Is sufficient to lnsuro the future suc
cess of the new organization, the de
tails of which may bo gathered from
the following excerpt from Us consti
tution: Article 1. Name This organization
shall be known as '"The Innocents."
Article 2. Objects The objects of
this organization shall be to further
the unity and spirit of senior life and
In our qlumni days to foster and ad
vance the standards of our alma mater.

Professor Davis of tho mathematical
department has In tho April number
of School Science an article on "The
Condition of Secondary Mathematical
Instruction, with Some Hints as to
Remedies." Tho article deals with the
question of tho advisability and the
method of correlating this branch with
that of physics, and emphasizes the
value of independent investigation In
mathematics, as well as in the field of
science. Professor Davis thinks the
teaching of mathematics should break
away from tho old formalism and keep
the science In touch with what Is go
ing on around us.

Nebraska Scored 8 to Indians' 5
Nebraska's speedy nine upheld Its
reputation yesterday and secured tho
bloody scalp of tho Nebraska Indians

from the north. Tho grounds had been
sprinkled in the morning and wero
free from dust.
Longanecker in the box for tho 'var
sity was hard hit, but received good
support and allowed no ono to walk.
Steon Covered himself with glory by
landing a ball ovor the new gate and
bringing In two men, with a home run
for himself. Shelmer In center field
made a couple of nice catches, but
seemed afraid to tacklo several other
chances that looked easy. Bender was
