This evoniiiK our basket ball team
team will piny Its flrBt Kame, and It is
Indeed desirable that It should start tne
seaflon with a victory. The Wesleyan
aggregation Is a strong one, and has
already given an Indication of Its
strength within our own territory.
The game tomorrow night will he vig
orously played; hence a fitting attrac
tion will be presented with which to
open the season. It will be certainly
an exciting athletic event nnd merits a
The matter ot regular attendance
at the convocation exercises can not
he emphasized too strongly It is safe
to say In the outset that there is no
equal period that the student will find
more beneficial In the long run than
the half hour spent at these exercises.
Perhaps many are not aware that there
is a regular committee in charge of
the chapel exercises and some ol their
best efforts are given to providing at
tractions daily which shall be enter
taining as well aa highly Instructive.
Those who have been attending chapel
will agree that the committee has been
entirely successful in Its efforts. The
speakers who appear are masters of
their subjects, and treat such subjects
as nil ought to be informed upon. The
glj'e you an Insight In the course of a
few minutes into what would oidinarily
take extensive investigation for you to
dig out for yourself Any one who
has not been attending convocation
should cultivate a habit of going at
once, not so mm h for the good of the
cause as for his own good The musi
cal attractions are of an especially
high order and merit a large attend
ance. At the Sophomore class meeting yes
terday morning a number of state
ments were made which were either in
tended to give false Impressions or else
grew out of a misunderstanding. While
we do not undertake to condemn any
one, we feel that it is our duty to cor
rect" a number of Impressions attempt
ed to be conveyed concerning The Ne
braskan. It was stated that The Ne
braskan had not in the first place been
authorized to advertise the price of the
Sophomore Hop as being a dollar, and
that we, although being requested, had
failed tfi announce that the price had
been raised to $1.50. In this connection
It was said that It had been intended
all along to charge $1,50, but that we,
acting without. authority, had set tno
price at $1.00. Although this explana
tion was officially accepted, It did not
give entire satisfaction to the class.
Ndw In the first place, there was
nothing to warrant the price being
raised to $1.50 a point which we do
not believe was explained. If $1.00
had been (barged all expenses would
have been covered, and a reasonable
profit left for the officials In charge of
affairs. Hut overlooking this all-Important
fact, let us consider the state
ments that were made. The card ad
vertising the hop that first appeared
In our columns was written by one of
our staff at the dictation Of one of the
two leading officials of the Sophomore
I Hop committee, and $1.00 was the price
stated. The card appeared Just as dic
tated, with no variations whatever.
Hut after it had run In one issue, we
were requested to leave it out for a
while, being informed that the price
"might" be raised. This we did and
upon special request Inserted the card
later without announcing any price,
presuming that nothing was wrong.
The evening before the Hop occurred
we were requested to announce that
th? price had been rnised to $1.50 tnis
being the first Intlmntlon thnt we had
had thnt such definite action had been
decided upon. Hence, we did not will
fully or even actunlly conceal until the
Inst moment the fnct thnt the price
had been raised, as alleged.
This is our explanation, nnd we think
It will stand. We have no desire to
condemn anyone, ns afore stated, but
we want to clear away all impressions
that we were mixed up In the dis
graceful victimizing of the Sophomore
class Whatever directions were given
In regard to advertising the affair we
carried out to the letter, and can cer
tainly be excused from the absurd at
tempts to lay any responsibility what
ever upon us
Y. W. C. A. Xmas Service.
The Inst Y W. C. A meeting of the
j ear wns a Christmas service. Spiigs
of holly were provided for all who at
tended Miss Allene McKachron fav
ored the audience with a vocal solo.
Miss Myra Withers then addressed the
meeting and In her charming manner
brought -homo to every girl the real
meaning of Christmas time, which she
said," wns a giving time, the whole
glnd enrth around."
Miss Van Zandt took charge of the
'recognition service," in which over
twenty girls were formally received
into the assoc iation.
Hour of Liederkranz Changed.
Professor Kossler announces that the
University Liederkranz. which has
heretofore met Mondays during the
convocation period for rehearsal, will
niter the Christ inns vacation meet
Wednesdays at 1:15 p in. This ( liange
it is hoped will enable more to take
advantage of the German song service,
which Is so ably conducted by Mrs.
Itaj mond Thevhorus is already large
but there is still room for more, nnd
the management is desirous that as
many as can will come out to them1 re
hearsals. The songs practiced nnd
sung nre GermniTTTntlonal hymns, to
know which is a privilege that all who
have any knowledge of German should
avail themselves of. The chorus, as
stated above, will meet Wednesdays at
1:15, beginning after the holidays.
This will not conflict with class meet
ings and other affairs which formerly
conflicted with the Liederkranz's time
Chancellor Andrews contributes an
article to the last "Independent," on
"Eastern and Western College Stu
dents." Dr. Andrew's estimate of the
two lives is clear and appreciative and
should prove interesting reading for
college men throughout the country.
His regard for western men Is especial
ly gratifying to Nebraskans.
