MAY MEET IOWA
Chances Good for Debate With
Negotiations arc undet way for" a de
bate with Iowa, and the chances seeui
Rood for a successful issue. Owing f
the failure of Wisconsin and Iowa to
como to an agreement for a contest.
the latter university has been open i
negotiations from other institutions,
All arrangements for a meet with Wl-
(onsin had been made, but owing to
contingencies that have ari.sen Iowa
has been obliged to give up the con
test and seek to make arrangement
Iowa is strong in debnte, having es-.
tablitihcd nh enviable record in forenfelc
contests. Nebraska's excellent record
Is well known, and in view ot the repu
tation of both of these institutions the
idea of a clash between them seems
quite logicnl. In fact the Idea lb a tak
ing one here, and such a contebt would
be looked forward' to with considerable
interest and speculation.
If a debate is arranged it will tak
place early in May. That will give our
debaters plenty of time to prepare.
Nebraska has submitted a question
and offored Iowa choice of sides and !t
is not improbable that an early under
standing may bp reached. Iowa wK!
have to niako new arrangements- for
holding the preliminaries, as Wiscon
sin's refusal to debate has disorganized
the ones already made. Two literary
organizations will present rival teams,
and the members of these will fight It
out for the places. Steps are being
taken already to reorganize the pre
liminaries and it is quite likely that
the contcet will take place in the near
Wednesday's Daily Iowan has the fol
lowingtosay regarding-the matter:
"There is every probability that the
offer of the Nebraskans will be ac
cepted and that the debating leaguo
will hasten toward the selection of a
final team to appear against the rivals.
The refusal of Wisconsin to continue
In the contest with Iowa this year dis
organized somewhat the prellmlnarj
contest which was to hayc been held
between Irving ami Zetagathla for the
selection of a final team. Two mem
bers of the Irving team in the prelim
inary have withdrawn from the con
test, leaving Irving with only one man
on tho preliminary team. At the meet
ing Friday night it was decided to go
ahead with the selection of another
team. TJho now members of the team
have not,yet been chosen, however. It
is probable that the two teams wl.ll
hold on early, preliminary taking for
the subject the same question that has
been submitted by Nebraska."
ZZr WILL HAVE A DANCEI
Step is Taken to Insure Larger
Crowd at Wisconsin Game
The Athletic Board has at last c4me
to llfo and decided to hold a dance in
connection with the basket ball game
with WjBConsln on March 5. This pan
is generally pursued at most of the
schools In the west and while is to
be regretted that such a measure Is
necessary to draw a crowd to the gam(
that ranks with football, still it is pos
sible that when the students, of the
Unlvorslty are compelled to seo a game
in order to dance, lliey will finally de
velop a little enthusiasm over basket
The usual enthusiasm is being
evinced over tho annual girls baskol
ball tournament toillght. All the teams

spirit. The Juniors feel certain that
for tho third time thoy will carry off
tho scnrlet pennant, but tho other

The classes begin the precedent this

auspicious. Prof, and -Mrs. Hodgmnn

One of the Cadet Companies May
For several days vague rumors have
been In circulation about the campus
Kgardlng the reorganization of the
Cadet Battalion, which wbb said to bo
under consideration by the military i
department. Wo havo not heretofore
published these roportB because wo
wore reliably informed that they were.
Indefinite nnd undetermined. Tho de
velopments of the past weok havo, how
ever, necessitated urgent remedy for
tho conditions which now confront tho
battalion, and It Is possible, if not
probable that at least ono or the pres
ent companies will be dissolved for tho
purpose of strengthening the remainder
of tho battalion. Captain Chase In nn
interview with a Nebrnskan reporter
yesterday, stated that unless tho prcs
ent companies were strengthened num
erically in tho near future, some such
,plan would, be resorted to. fTho com
panies as thoy exist at present aro too
small to be practicable, he eald, and
some scheme to Improve their effi
ciency is demanded, even If one com
pany must bo sftcrlAcctl for the bonefl,t
of the others.
A staff officer of tho battalion told
our roporter that so serious had be
come the consideration of this project
that an order for the dissolution or
Company D had actually been made
out, but rovoked at the last minute In
the hope thotrSomc other romedy might
bo devised for the situation. Adjutant
Bell said that Company D would not
be abandoned If a maiorltv of tho
chronic Bluffers In tho battalion could
be forced to comply with the military
The results of the proposal will not
be known until some tlrao next week.
The officers of the whole battalion arc
strenuously opposed to tho Idea of
splitting up Company D, and Captain
Chase is vory loath to carrying It Into
effect unless it is necessary. Notice;
will be sent to the men who aro dlsrc
gnrding the requirements of the de
partments, and If this has no effect a
wholesale susponsion from the Univer
sity will doubtless take placo. . This
course would be rair, not only to thi
battalion as a whole, but to Its IndlvN
dual members, Avho are complying with"
their military regulations.

in the band last evening:
To bo sergeants:
