Unconfirmed Rumor Says Fresh
ies Will Meet at Last.
SopliH to bo Ontriulncl. TIo .Junior
Vrcfthlent In tlie Cluilr.
Shoitly before our going to press
last eening, an apparently well au
thenticated rumor reached us to the
effect that the Freshman class has at
last roused enough courage to call a
class meeting. According to this re
port the meeting will be held In Me
morial Hall next Thursday morning,
with Mr. L. T. Sldwell. president ol
the .Junior class. In the chair, and
Chant ollor Andrews, sergeant-at-arms.
The meeting of last Tuesday, which
was wholly In the hands of the Sopho
mores, will be disregarded entirely,
and under the auspices of the Juniors
and othe r peaceably inclined upper
classmen, who will not stand for the
"ileepptlsm" of the Sophomores, a
whole staff of officers will be chosen.
In fait, no Soimomores are to -lie ad
mitted to the meeting, and the Fresh
men will be afforded a fair opportunity
Immediately on hearing the rumor
as above, a representative of the Nc
braskan called at the executive office
for confirmation of It. The repot t was
neither confirmed nor denied, however,
and we can thorefoie assume no re
sponsllillty for it, though agtiin assert
ing the ayiarent reliability of our in
formant In 'this connection, the following
communication was handed us yester
day afternoon, for publication We
publirh communications gladly, assum
ing. loweer, no responsibility for
their contents or sentiments:
" Editor Nebraskan: I beg your per
mission to address, through your
columns, a few remarks to the Fresh
man class. They are as follows:
"Eeiyone has begun to marvel and
wonder about whether or not there is
a Freshman class in the university,
and were it not for the numerous

clansmen that are now Sophomores
were organized and conducting their
own affair with bulldog tenacity, and
their record of achievements stands
untai niched in the history of our in

from off your feet and get into the
ur.iveislty band wagon,
"Haven't you got any one inyour
overwhelming numbers who has
enough class spirit, business and cour
age to post a notice' and call a meet
ing; or do you expect to go through
your four years college course with

"Every class above you has already
elected officers and completed Us busi

you aie absolutely dead, no sign of
any movement whatever toward get

gether any better when you call your
first meeting you'll be a sorry looking
bunch when the Sophs get through
with you. Where is your energy? Are
you still moping about the familiar
scenes at home and dragging your
selves about the halls still hunting tor
recitation rooms? If so, cut it out and
mix with the rest of us, be university
students, not green-horns. My class

The athletic- editor of the Chicago

noticed that they are looking for great
things from Nebtaskn:
"Two great western athletic contests
