Score of Seniors Receive Rec
ognition of Scholarship.
This morning In chapel the list of
those elected to Phi Beta Kappa chapter
was read, arriid the demonstrations of
the large throng that was assembled.
The usual excitement preliminary to
the annual announcement was in evi
dence, and now those whose hearts
have been beating anxiously with ex
pectation are glad that it is all over.
The final meeting of the council was
held yesterday evening, when the final
decisions were made.
Doubtless many will feel disappoint
ed because they were not honored, al
though they have maintained a high
standard of scholarship all through
tneir college course. However, a large
per cent of the class have not had tht
required work, as It was the purpose
of those who originally founded the
chapter to prevent intense specializa
tion along one line. There are required
branches included In the list of require
ments. Full work in any four of these
will render a student eligible to con
sideration for the Phi Beta Kappa
chapter. The requirements are as fol
lows: Ten hours of either ancient or mod
ern languages.
Ten hours history.
Ten hours science.
Ten hours mathematics.
Six hours philosophy.
A glance at this list will show how
many lose out if they are not posted
on the necessary qualifications. Moral
character is also taken Into conslder-
r atlon, but it is doubtful if anyone was
debarred on this account. Following
is the list of fortunate ones who have
achieved one of the highest honors
to which a student of this university
can aspire:
E. R. Buckner.
Hose Clark.
N. M. Cronln.
Bessie Dumont.
Josephine Dumont.
Ethelwyn Hand.
Maria Kern.
Lula King.
Beulah LIvesey.
Patty Matthews.
Harriet Mitchell.
Addle IteynoldBon.
Ira Rynor.
Anna Van Zondt.

this time the teams will practically
be picked. Following that there will
be some contest every Saturday. Among
the events which may bo arranged are
meets with the Lincoln high school,
Doapo college, with the winner of the
state championship, and two Univer
sity meets, a handicap and an inter
class. Owing to the heavy track the hurd
lers and runners could not get out yes
terday afternoon, but the polo vaulters
practiced In tho Armory. Hagensick,
bibson and Morse are all doing well,
and havo cleared the ten foot mark.
Benedict can do better than this by
eight inches, and it is predicted that
he will clear eleven feet before the
season Is over. This should be as good
as anything Minnesota can do.
Dr. Elson, the president of the West
ern Inter-Collegiate Gymnastic asso
ciation, has notified Dr. Clapp that Ne

board. This association takes in Min

The Senior Prom.
Arrangements Made for Two
Dates. Baseballists Busy.
The dates for the Minnesota and
Coloradq meets havo now been definite
ly set. The former will occur at Lin
coln on Saturday, May 21, and the Col
orado contest will take place at Boul
der on Wednesday, May 11. An at
tempt was made toiave it either the
13th or 14th, so that the men would
not bo absent from classes for the
greater part of tho week, but the Colo
rado Interscholastlc field meet takes
place on those days, and the Qnly thing
left to do was to take a mid-week date.
The South Dakota meet has already
been Bet for May 30.
Now that the principal dates have
Ijeen. fixed the secondary meets will be
arranged The first orio will be tho
regular preliminary, and April 1G has
been selected as the day for that. At
The attention of the University pub
lic is again called tcAhe Senior Prom.,
which is to be -hold at tho Lincoln,
hotel on April 8th.
There seems to be an Impression
abroad that this is strictly a class af
fair. This-ls a mistaken Idea. The
Senior Prom like all class dances, Is
Intended for University people general
ly, but is only conducted by tho Se
niors, It Is an opportunity for "old
grads" to come back and keep in touch
with the University and renew old ac
quaintances. It is the last class dance
of tho year and many people, especial
ly those who are now in their last
year, will desire to avail themselves
of this last opportunity to participate
in one of the most enjoyable functions
of the year.
In the past this has been considered
more or less formal, but in fact many
of the studentB havo slgnnfled their
Intention of not being deprived of the
pleasure of this function on account of
a mero matter of form.
Tho committee Is prepared to enter
tain a large and representative Univer
sity crowd. The halls, the large floor,
Eddy Walt's orchestra, and long
dances are features which will make
this most a pleasant evening for all
Chancellor and Mrs. Andrews, the
faculty and students of the College
of Medicine will bo tendered a recep
tion by tho Medical Society of the Uni
versity at Art Hall, Friday evening,
April 8th.
During" the early part of the even
ing there will bo speaking by Dr. An
drews and other distinguished guests
both from Lincoln and from out of
town. Tho chancellor Is but slowly re-
'vering from his recent sickness and
this will practically be his first ap
pearance In public since his return
from Chicago.
In this reception the Medical So
ciety has a two-fold purpose, primarily
as a manifestation of welcome to the
chancellor, and further to promote ac
quaintance and good fellowship among
those interested in medical work In tho
A party of students on return from
a recent visit to tho Omaha depart
ment of tho college, report having had
a very enjoyablo and profitable trip,
inspecting the facilities of the institu
tion at that place, Especially wore they
Impressed with the mothods employed
In conducting clinics and by the
strength in numbers and quality of the
active teaching staff. Both faculty and
students from Omaha will attend the
reception, thereby Increasing the cer
tainty of its being one of tho memor
able social events of tho year In Uni
versity circles. Doubtless many of the
guests will remain over and be visitors
to our campus the following day.
Music will be furnished by Hage-
now's orchestra and refreshments ap
propriate to tho occasion will be served.
Practice Debates are Being Held.
. Debating Elsewhere.
Another practice preliminary debate
was held yesterday afternoon from one
to threo o'clock in Memorial hall. The
speakers on the afflrmatlvoVwero J. D.
Brady, T. T. Johnson and R.VJ. Hender
son. Tho negative side of tho ques
tion was supported by B. G. Lwis, L.
C. Llghtner and C. A. "Sawyer The
squad will meet again this afternoon.
Most of the members of the squad'
will remain here during tho recess, only
three or four of thom going home for
tho vacation.
At California there are thirtyappli
cants for positions on the team that
will meet Stanford In tho annual con
test. A California alumnus has offered
a prize of $100 to the team If it suc
ceeds In defeating Stanford. Tho pre
liminaries aro being held In tjiree sec
tions, with three sets of judges.
The work of making tho next sum
mer session a material factor in the
general work of the University is be
ing zealously pushed. Arrangements
have boen perfected for the excursion
to the World's Fair, which will leave
Lincoln Juno 25th, and return July
2d, and which will be open to all tho
studentB attending tho summer Bchool.
Very reasonable rates have beon se
cured, in fact the cost of attending
ti.e fair will be hardly half as much bp
it otherwise would bo. Hotel rates of
vx.50 a day havo been secured. Ordi
narily each person would be obliged
to pay $20 to $30 per week. Fifteen
dollnra will cover all actual expenses
of each student, which In itself would
be almost enough to induce students to
attend summer school even If they
wore not inspired with a deslro for
further culture and enlightenment.
Only members of tho faculty and regis
tered students will bo allowed to profit
by these rates. Others desiring to go
will havo to pay advanced prices.
In all probability tho band will ac
company the excursion. It contem
plates making a tour In the state this
summer, and If It does It will bo held,
together until tho date of tho oxcur
sion. If it goes It will help mattors
greatly. The excursion will bo adver
tised extensively all over tho state as
a feature of the summer school, and It
ought to bo a good drawing card.
The calendar is out and presents an
altogether different appearance from
the usual order of summer school cal
endars. It Is printed on better paper
and all tho composing work was done
by hand. The variety of type gives
form and tone to the book throughout,
features that havo been noticeably
lacking heretofore. Tho titles of tho
courses have been put in bold-face
type, the names of tho professors In
capB and the names of tho faculty In
connection with tho courses they give
have boen put in large heavy capitals,
and tho title of the course in Bmaller
The list of tho faculty takes up four
pages and la longer than ever before. A
general page statement follows enum
erating the colleges and schools In the
University, followed by a statement as
to the length of the courses and the
degrees. Then follows a 'seven page

advantages of the session. -
Tho style of this bulletin as to Eng

form to generally recognized literary
usages. For Instance nil the malh
words in. the title of colleges and
schools are capitalized," as well as the
Imaln words In the title of each course.
rpeWer abbreviations will be used than
heretofore, and the description of each
course also followB more or less close

and there are many more courses. Over
