gineers, but in the other classes the
fight was not waged at all on Lit-Engineer
The Seniors met yesterday morning
to elect officers. Two names were
placed before the class, that of Miss
Grace Coppock and that of R. H. White,

votes, Miss Coppock receiving but 47.
Miss Mary Harris was elected vice
president by a unanimous vote, and
the same unanimous voto was given
to Miss Minnio Petrashek for secre

of last semester, was re-elected to this
position unanimously. Tho only con

Quietness and lack of contest char
acterized tho election of the Juniors,
although tho ballot showed a strong
Interest in both candidates. Mr. Cos

president. Mr. Geo. Tunlson, his op
ponent, stacked up sixty-three votes
against Mr. Costelloe'B nlnoty-five.

ing was tho order of balloting., on

and up to tho time of balloting the
result could- not bo foreseen. A third
candidate had been put in tho Hold
a. few days ago, but yesterday decldod
to pull out, "leaving tho contest to tho
two candidates. There was no con
test over tho other offices, and tho
following were elected: Miss Pearl
Archibald, secretary and treasurer;
MifiB Ruth Thompson, vice-president,
und Mr. Sidwell, sergeant-at-arms. It
was thought that the contest for sergeant-at-arms
would wax warm and
strong, but on account of his good ser
vices while holding tho office of presi
dent, Mr. Sidwell was given the place
without a dissenting vote.
Mr. Costelloe is a mining engineer
student and a member of tho Union
Literary Society. Miss Archibald is a
member of Pi Beta Phi Sorority and

A CONDITIONAL GIFT
Morril Offers a Neat Sum With
Mr. C. H. Morrill, ex-regent of the
University has offered to give $5,000 to
strengthen the museum. That Is pro
vided the state legislature is willing
to appropriate money to make the pro
per addition to the building as now
used and according to tho plans of the
board of regents. He Defuses, however,
to sec the valuable collections that
are delivered to the University author
ities and donated to tho state, buried
under ground and stored In boxes piled
iip in corn cribs.
Mr. Morrill has been interested in
the geological expeditions of the Uni
versity in the past and has been instru
mental In sending out yearly expedi
tions for the collection of valuable
specimens and tho material has been
used In an exceedingly rough manner
on account of tho meager displacement
and unsafeness of the geology building.

SOPHS TIE WESLEYANS
The Second Year Men Put Up a
The Sophomore class team was suc
rr i ful In holding Wesleyan down to a
tie game on Wednesday evening on
their floor. The Sophs proved to bo a
stronger aggregation than Wesleyan
had bargained for and they received
a surprise The playing of the Sopho
mores was of first class order and this
fenm would give the average college
team a hard fight.
The stiongest feature oT Wednes
day's game wus the good team work
"lit up by both teams. Probably the
Wsleyan team had tho bettor of It
in this part of tho game.' The game
woe very fast from beginning to end
and characterized Jy many spectacular
plays by both teams. The game was
very clean and free from tho number
of fouls that usually enter Into a game
played on so small a floor and teams
so evenly matched, rhe game was in
favor of Wcslejan during tho first half
and the score for this half was 28 to 30
in 'thoir favor. But the Sophomores
took a brace the second half and
'evened tho score by gaining tho three
points thoy had lost the first half. The
work of Meyer at center and Snilth
and Swan at forward, and Captain
Powitian aUguard .was excellent. " For
Wesleyan the work of Cherrington,
Lowell and White is especially worthy
of mention and those men were the
main dependence of their team. The
lineup was as follows:
Swan . . .
Jones .. .
Bowman , Applechoppor

This game will be followed by a
game with Baker University on Sat
urday night, Feb. 11. These two games
promise to be as interesting and close
ly contested as any games played in
I incoln this season. Baker Uiffverslty

history of that University. The
Omaha Y. M. C. A. is very strong this
year and succeeded in holding the 'var
