the Prom, every fellow has had his best

To surpass the Junior Promr, of pro-
ious yeais will be no small undertak
ing for the committee that is in charge.
Of the Proms, in former years some
hae been all that one could wish,
while others have been made to line
Individual pockets at the expense of
the evening's enjoyment. This year
however, competent men have the af

time is insured
Since? its origin at Nebrask the Ju
nior Prom, has been the greatest,
most elaborate and expensive social
function in the University society cir
cles. Alumni from everywhere use
the Prom, as an excuse to visit again
their alma mater, schoolmates and
l'rat brothers. With the Prom, there
omes a reunion. Old acquaintance
aro renewed, new ones made and old
ties strengthened. Dormant interest
in their University is aroused in the
farads., and then, besides being a social
event, the Prom is of incalculable alue
to the institution. The alumni of col
lego institutions are the roots and
stems through which it lives and per
petuates itself. The great body of
alumni is tho great feeder of the Uni
versity and so whatever keeps alive

WANT $f70 DAMAGES.
Artists Make Modest Demand
of Art Association.
The Beard of Directors of the Ne
braska Art association held a meet
ing a few days ago. with tho expecta
tion of holding felicitations over the
encouraging outcome of the recent art
exhibit. But their spirits were some
what dampened by tho presentation
of a bill of damages of $170 from the
Packeis Co., on behalf of the artists
of New York City, whose work was
exhibited here The damages weie al
leged to have been sust3ilned by the
frames of the Alexander pictures
which attracted so much attention
here. These pieces of costly frailty
aro alleged to have suffered to a con
siderable extent, which is to Lc re
gretted if such Is the case. But this
bill If paid would wipe out all the sur
plus and more too. The demand Is
considered unjust, becaube the plcturep
left Chicago In an unsafe condition,
as tho frames were about to fall apart,
as a memorandum from the Chicago
Moreover the gilding had been nibbed
off of several of the antique picture
frames and an enterprising University
emploje with a laudable desire to make
the frames presentable to critical Lin
coln sight-Beers, sought to remedy this
defect by a device of his own. He
smuggled In some bronze paint and un
known to anyone else, In the generos
ity of His heart rotouched the frames
In beautiful and artistic style. Now
tho artists claim that the touch of
antiquity has been forever lost. The
antiquity was of course the beauty of
the frames. Consternation reigns
among the board of directors, although
Miss Haydeif claims that she can doc
tor up those daubs of the zealous and
worthy employe so that even the wise
Solcns could not detect the imposture,
ijno expects to accomplish this result
by means of a chemical solution.
Pres. F. M. Hall is too good a lawyer
and possessed of too many pugnacious
tendencies to allow the association to
be Imposed upon to such an extent as
Is httempted. He has telegraphed the
New York packers that tho board will
resist tho ciailm. There has never been
a season yet In which claims for dam
ages were not made, and the board's
generosity in tho past In dealing -with
these claims seems to encourage the
New York artiBtis to try their luck
again.. It fs indeed a compliment to
our association that the eastern world
of artists think that it is bo wealthy
oa to pay largo sums for damages
without a careful investigation of the
lust Ice of the demands.
Senior Candidates Scarce.
The candidates for the presidency
of the Senlorclas8 aro not overwhelm
ing their constituents by importune
clamors for support. Although the
election is close at hand, only one can
didate is Known to be in the Held. Mr.
Edwin F. My.er8 has announced his
willingness' to enter the race and
seems to bo well endorsed However,
other candidates are expected to de
clare themselves, and the race for the
place will devolop some excitement yet.

THE TRACK TEAM
Candidates to Meet in Dr. Clapp's
Office This Morning.
Attentlin Is ngain called to the meet
ing In Dr. Clapp's ofllce this morning.
It Is absolutely essential to a sueeetc
ful track team to get out and push.
Meets nre practically arranged with
the University of Colorado at Boulck.-,
with South Dakota at Sloyx Cltj, and
with Ames and Minnesota in Lincoln.
To win theso meets will requiie an ex
ceptionally strong team, and our rec
ord of last year fhe records broken
must be equalled at leaEt.
Another matter demp'ndlug atten
tion from all gymnasium men is regis
tration for lockers. All men holding
lockers last semester must re-register
for them before Saturday night or the
locks will be cut off.
All men taking gym or athletic work
who have not taken a physical exam
ination this year must do bo at once.
This week is being devoted to these
examinations, and there will be no floor
work until next Monday, except in
course 32, the ladieb" section, which
will meet Saturday at 4:30 p. m.
All is quiet in football circles, fur-
ther arrangements being prevented by
Iowa s failure to reply to our last tele
gram. A game Is assured with Colo
rado for next year, and Grlnnel 1b to
take Colorado's placo on the schedule.
As soon as the Iowa date is settled,
Knox and Haskell can be attended
to. Already November 12 has been
practically agreed upon for Haskell.
Tho first team Is to play Wesleyan

stiff knee and will probably be re
lieved by Benedict.
Friday night the Seniors will play
the first High School team In the nr

a better game against the first team
than Wesleyan did, and as this team
defeated the Seniors, the outcome is

said to a Nebraskan reporter last even
ing that the game would not prove a
paying attraction and that arrange
ments had consequently been discon
tinued. Entries for the Charter Daj indoor
ontest must be In Dr. Clapp's hands
by Wednesday, February 10, at G p. m.
Ail those men who intend to do track
work and also all the gymnaBts In the

Fence 'cult for height.
Running high kick.
18-foot ropo climb.

Medals will be given for first and
second places In each event. InBtead

is to be hoped that more fraternities
will enter tho relay race' than did last
altogether unfounded In fact.
Tho number of candidates lor places
on tho Interstate debating squad Ih
growing rapidly and promiECs to ex
ceed last year's in registration. In
addition to the list of twenty-five pub
lished Monday several now registra
tions have been recorded. Those enter

will be held In about two weeks, each
candldato will bo at liberty to support

will be called for about a week before
Although the board has not definite
ly settled tho matter, it may be said
that the time allowed each speaker
will not bo more than ten minutes
and may be slightly less.
The order of speakers will be deter
mine d by lot in a few days.
Cross Country Running.
Tlir cross country runs will bo ic
Eumed next week, after a delay oc-.
'nii'.ucd by tho setting in of tho pres
ent cold spell. It Is quite probable
that In the future theso runs will
take place at 5 o'clock on Tuesday
and Thursday each week and on Sat
urday afternoons. Before the cold spell
the squad went regularly two or three
times a week, and upon each occasion
there were at least nine or ton men
out. While many of the men are show
ing up well, the squad is short on
weights and sprintfl. It is planned to
continue theso runs as in the past to
tho packing houso northwest of the
city and to tho fair grounds, where
tho track has been utilized for prac
tice. Today all of the candidates for the
track team are requested to meet In
Dr. Clapp's ofllce at 10 o'clock. It is
hoped that a largo number of men
will bo present. Tho inducement of
fered by this opportunity for healthy
outdoor exercise ought to appeal to
many University men who havo no
other chance. A numbor of strong
men havo already shown up, but moro
TO GO THROUGH MILL.
All Men Out for Places on Debate
Must Earn Therm
. A report gained circulation yesterday
to the- effect that members of Inst
year's Interstate teams would be ad
mitted to the squad this year without
running tho gauntlet of the prelimi
naries. This report Secretary Ryner, .In be
half of the Debating Board, says is
Candidates Out For the Office of
Many vaguo pophesies are a.float
these days about the different candi
dates for president of the Freshmaai
class. None, however, havo announced
their Intention of making tho raco, but
many It Is believed have an Inward
longing for tho honored position, and
may have made a secret canvass among
their friends. Judging from the broad r
smiles . and tho warm political hand
shake of the moro prominent mem
bers. It Is plainly visible that a mighty
struggle will occur at the election of
officers next Monday morning.
The methqd of campaigning this se
mester has varied greatly from that
of last fall a.nd the would-be candi
dates are not announcing themselves
so publicly for fear of added opposi
tion, but anticipate tp storm the meet
ing. It Is understood that President Scott
has refused to be a candidate for a
second teVm, wishing to glvo way to
some others who have been Instru
mental In shaping the best Interests of
the class and In this manner passing
the office around to different members,
which, of course, is very commendable
considering his successful administra
tion. Who tho favored son wili.be is j
tho subject of much gossip, but noth- .
ing is definite as yet, so the field lies
with plenty of good material and only
ono place td fill. However, wo will
await the results of what wrtj certainly
be an Interesting affair. -
