CHANGES IN DRILL,
Alterations are Provided for
New Regulations. -
The new drill regulations, concern
ing which there lias been so much
speculation during the past week, are
said to include some very radical
cnanges, which will materially affect
tho drill or the university cadet bat
talion. The setting up exercises have been
reduced In number from seventeen to
.Six. Tho"companles will fall In with
a distance between the-back of the
front rank and tho breast of tho rear

inches. The now distance will bo main

lations is that of tho Squad, in close as

ImportanrMn the old regulations only
in extended order.
Changes in tho manuej of tho piece
are very few, most of thom being in
tho school of tho company, battalion

of the magazine gun, but may-bo made

CLASS WILL GIVE "HOP"
Junior Class Will Make up the
'07 Cap Deficit.
Another chapter has been added to
the memorable Freshman-Sophomore
cap controversy of last year. It is well
known that the '07 caps, which tho
Sophs burned last year have never
been paid for and a little matter of
about $75 la still outstanding against
thorn In consequence. Yesterday morn
ing President (SIdwelL of tho class of
190G,-appointed a committee to devise
some means for clearing tho fair name
of the class, and tho committee has de
cided that the boat way out of the dif
ficulty will be to give a dance noxt
For this purpose the art room of tho
library has already been secured.
Dancing will begin at 9 o'clock sharp,
and everyone la advised to get their
tickets at once, because a quarter extra

As a special Inducement, It Ib an

TWO MORE CANDIDATES.
New Additions to Ranks of Presi
The already swelling ranks of as
pirants for Freshman class honors re
ceived two new recruits yesterday af
ternoon. Mr. Byron Eaton, of Omaha,
and Mr. Leslie Mills, of Alma, are the
gentlemen In question. It is reported
that neither gentleman has the support
of the Sophomores, but Mr. Mills is
recognized as a person of great weight
among his classmates and ought to
prove a formidable candidate. " Mr.
Eaton Is, supposed to be tho .choice of
the Omalmfrcshmen and will doubtless
pou a large voic. mr, mmib nas not
authorized thd'uso of his name In con
nection with the presidency, but he is
being mentioned for the position much
more frequently than anyone else.
It is rumored that the two upper

men, should the-Sophomores attempt
tp bring about a repetition of last

QRINNELL IS DEFEATED
Cornhuskers Have an Easy Time
With the Collegians.
Saturday's game gave tho rooters
their first opoprtunity to get a line on
the real strength Coach Booth has so
far developed In tho varsity, and re
sults were very satisfactory. In spite
.of tho fact that a wet field made Bene
dict's end runs almost impossible, and
rendered long gains very difficult, Ne
braska piled up 4G against Grlnnell,
whoso team, with the exception of cen
ter, was but little lighter than tho
Less thnn three- minutes were re-
Qulred lor the first touchdown to be
made and goal kicked, and then it was
only a question of how big a score
the varsity would, roll ip.
With What so far seems tho rogular
team, 28 points were registered on the
semaphore at the end of the first half.
w In the secpfad half, with jqow jnen
taking the place of the regulars, all
the time, only 18 points were scored.
The left side of the 'line seemed all
that could be desired, but too often the
men lrom Iowa found weak spots In
Nebraska's right. Evidently this la
where material Is needed, but quantity
of men will yield quality and some of
the subs Saturday held their -own like
Bohlnd tho line excellent work' was
done and Glen Mason. Bendor and
Eager rarely failed to gain when
Benedict's punts were excellent. In
Bplte of a muddy, slippery oval, his
kicks averaged good distances and he
kicked nearly every goal.
The tackling of the varsity was very
satisfactory, considering tho condition
of tho field, Grlnnell men vory rarely
returning a punt or kick-off flvo yards.
During the second half Richardson
went in for Borg, and Speor. Denslow,
Ryan, Standeven, Barwlck, Fenlon,
Marsh and Weller formed a new line
up before tho game' ended.
Bender made two touchdowns, Cy
Mason, Eager, Barta, Johnson and
Weller, one each. Twenty-five and
twenty-minute halves wore played.
Cornell officiated as referee; Erwin,
umplro, and" Harry 'Tuksyhcad HneB
man. Under the leadership of Ramsey and
Allen tho men in the rooters' section
did very effective work.' The new yelL
is a good ono and next time three times
as many men should turn out with
megaphones. A true sportsmanlike
spirit was shown by tho rooters being
almost Impartial in the yells g(ven,
Ntibraska yells alternately With that bf
Grlpnell with even regularity.
Among Nebraska's opponents for this
season Illinois succeeded in defeating
Knox by a score of 11-0. Minnesota
ran up 65 on Carelton and Iowa piled
an 88 score up on Cornell.
Last night the usuaj punting and
catching was the order. Candidates
for line positions were coached pretty
thoroughly in blocking-and charging. I

Dr- Andrews Gives a Short Talk
Chancellor Andrews spoke on several
matters at convocation yesterday morn
ing. An audience of unusual propor
tions listened to his remarks and ex
hibited a lively Interest In what he bad
Dr. Andrews urged greater prompt
ness amdng the students, not only to
their cIobbcb, but to lectures and less
Important matters as well. He also
entered a plea for greater cleanliness
en the campus and especially empha
sized the fac.t that the building and
goneral confusion now going on on tho
campus did .not furnish an excuse for
carelessness, but added a greater ob
ligation for further exertions. He de
sired greater care in tho buildings as
well, particularly the library, and called
attention to the rule prohibiting
smoking on the campus, this regula
tion not having been very strictly ob
served so far this year.
Unnecessary roughness among the
men, particularly in connection with
fraternity Initiations, was especially
warned against. The chancellor also
concurred in Hhe remarks made by
Dean Davis last Monday in regard to
"rushing," asserting that the end of
the year or semester, or at least, next
month would be a much better time for
such ceremonies, conducing to a better
quality of membership for t.he frater
nities and sororities and to the gen
eral dignity and comfort of the student
The tendency of Home of Ihe Ira-,
ternlties to exalt the social side of col
lego life, over the more serious matters
the chancellor believed to bo a mis
take. Social functions should be merely
incidental to study, he declared, and
should not be unduly lndulgecTjn.
In conclusion, Dr. Andrews' advised
more oxerclso among the studentsas
an Invaluable did' to clear study arid
general health. "Without It." he saitf,,
"success in your studies Is Impossible:"
