Tne debating board held its first
meeting of the year yesterday after
noon in the trophy room, the new mem
bers, Dean Pound and Professor
French, meeting with the board for the
first time. By unanimous vote it was
decided to discontinue the annual de
bate with Missouri University this year,
and to meet instead Washington Uni
versity at St. Louis. Of this decision,
Secretary Ira Ryner telegraphed Mis
souri last night, and the following let
ter was sent:
Lincoln, Neb., Dec. 14, 1903.
Mr. Redmond S. Cole, Sec'y of the De
bating League, University of Mis
souri, Columbia, Missouri.
My Dear Mr. Cole:
As a result of the first meeting of
our debating board, held today, It was
decided to discontinue the regular an
nual debate with Missouri this year.
We greatly regret that matters were
not d'nltely fixed earlier, but in viev
of the fact that you say that you have
offers for debates from other institu
tions, and that we ourselves are In
receipt of recent overtures from other
universities which facts show that
those matters are yet unsettled with
other institutions we feel that this
action will work no great inconven
ience to Missouri.
In lehalf of our Board I bog to wish
Missouri the largest success in dobate,
and hope that friendly relations be
tween Missouri and Nebraska may con
tinue I remain, most sincerely yours,
Secretary of the Nebraska Debating
Washington University is much larg
er than Missouri University, haing an
attendance of over 2,200 last year. It
Is a wealthy school, heavily endowed,
and part of the world's fair buildings
go to the University. Among their de
partments is a strong law school, and
in science they also rank high. They
expect to draw the members of their
team, as does Nebraska, from all de
partments of the University. The head
of the English department is A. O.
Lovejoy, a friend of Professor Fogg,
the two being acquainted at Harvard,
which fact may have had something
to do with arranging the debate be
tween Nebraska and Washington Uni
versities. Professor Lovejoy, former
Professor of philosophy of Leland
Stanford, was one of the three judges
which gave Nebraska the unanimous
decision over Missouri In 1902. in the
street railway debate, In which Craft,
North and Meier defeated Missouri.
Alter this debate he said.. JThe discus
sion of the question was far better
than the mayor of St. Louis and a
Missouri congressman7 discussed it."
Our other debate this year Is with
Kansas, which will come off here. Both
debates will bo rousing hot The Kan
sas debate is the sole connection be
tween the two Universities. For Kan
sas it is one out of three to win and
they will come prepared. They have
adopted- a new stylo of debate and will
send a team strong and efficient in
every respect. As for Washington
University, wo may consider ourselves
fortunate In securing a debate with this
strong Institution where debating holds
a high place, and will meet In them
a foe worthy of our Bteel.
Mr. Ryner has written South Dakota
regretting our Inability to accept
their courteous Invitation to meet them
in debate this year, and that we hope
to meet them another year. The change
from Missouri to Washington finds
popular favor In Nebraska, being In
duced, perhaps, by the element of nov
tley, after th,e five straight decisive vic
tories, four of which were over Mis
souri and Kansas.

characters. The committee, Miss
Howell, MIbs Stephen and N. J. Elliott,
will receive names until Friday, and
parts will be assigned to be committed.
After the holidays active work will
commence and parts will be heard by
the committee. Miss Mabel Stephen

The Seniors met yesterday morning
in U. 106. E. P. Tyner, business man
ager of the Senior Annual, reported
that the contract for pictures had been
let to the Elite Studio, and requested
that all Seniors have their pictures
taken before going home for the Christ
mas acation. This is Important and
all should1 attend to the matter at
once in order that work on the Annual
may not be unnecessarily delayed.
A vote was taken for a class pin,
and No. 9 of the list, an original de
sign, by a member of the class, won
out on the first ballot. The pin will be
manufactured by Hallett, the O street
Jeweler, where they should be ordered
at once. The class also voted to have
a yell, and President Elliott was em
powered to appoint a committee to pre
pare a yell, and instruct the class in
its rendition. For this Newton, Bell
and Miss Brayton were named. The
matter of class orator again came up
and since no conclusion has been
reached it was agreed to empower a
committee to confer with Chancellor
Andrews and that the procuring of the
speaker be left to their discretion.
In regard to the class play Miss
Howell was asked to present the mat
ter, which she did very ably. She em
phasized the fact that it will take some
extra time for those who take part,
but no one should allow this consider
ation tosand in the way of his trying
for a place. There will be some honor
In representing the class in this phase,
but honor should by no means be the
first consideration. To presennrTjood
play comes first and secondly the
amount of good each person derives
from the training a play of the stamp
furnishes. Two plays have been thought
of, ono of which will 1)e selected.
Shakespeare's "The Taming of the
8hrew," and Goldsmith's "She Stoops
to Conquer." These are both well
known plays and when once mastered
will be well worth the effort.
Miss Howell asked that no one be
backward In trying for a place, not
even to let modesty stand In the way,
