.University Republicans Meet
Committees Appointed.
They May Bond Delegate to the Inauguration.
"University republicans were pres
ent at the meeting of the republican
club hold atll a. m. In U 207 yester
day. President Ozman called the meet
ing to order and announced that the
president's Inaugural committee was
planning to have a large delegation of
representatives of collego republican
clubs at the Inaugural ceremonies held
In Washington, March 4, and that Ne
braska had been Invited to send repre
sentatives. Mr. Ozman further stated
that a rate of one faro plus two dol
lars could be Bocured and that this
would mako a cost of about thirty-four
dollars per man for transportation.
The club Is without the necessary
funds to send a representative and the
sentiment of the meeting was that no
member of the club could afford to at
tend unless his expenses were paid. It
was suggested that some of the Uni
versity students might bo In Washing
ton at that time or that some of the
alumni who are in Washington might
represent the club. A committee of
thrpo wtia appointed to find out If any
of the students of the University con
template attending the ceremonies and
also to secure a list of the alumni now
In Washington.
The members of the club seem to
feel that there Is a lack of enthusiasm
among tho republicans of the Univer
sity. A committee was appointed to
consider tho advisability of having a
club banquet to arouse Interest.
President Ozman announced the fol
lowing committees:
Inaugural representative R. A. Van
Orsdalo, chairman; A. G. Nelson, F. D.

Fraternity Hall, March 3
Traces of Outside Work is Dis
covered, Tho flre which caused considerable
loss to tho University book store seems
to have been the work of incendiaries
Mr. Gilbert, one of the proprietors, left
the store a half hour before tho flro
broke out, but returned to get some
thing he had forgotten. Ho found
everything In good condition and again
left, and not twenty minutes after his
departure the alarm of flre was turned
In. Investigation seemed to indicate
quite clearly that somo ono had fired
the building. There was no flre in tho
stove, and the box in which matches
wore kept was not even scorched, while
tho contonts of tho same drawer was
badly damaged. None of tho clerkB
employed in the store ever smoked
and no cigar ends could have been left
lying about. When the flro department
arrived the front door was found
broken open and tho money In the two
tills to the amount of some fifteen
dollars, was gone. There is ovory indi
cation that tho flre was not due to ac
cident. Inventory of tho stock is be
ing taken today and tho exact Iosb has
not yot been determined. Enough In
surance is carried, however, to Insure
tho owners of the store against any
financial loss.
Dance Successful.
Tho dance given in tho Art hall after
the Qleo club concert Thursday even
ing was a success. The floor was in
excollent condition, and Eddie Walt's
music was never better. The hall was
tastefully decorated In University col
ors and pennants. No programs were
used for tho dances, tho affair being
entirely Informal.
Last Wednesday a re-argument on
the case of Green vs. Wllko was held
In tho district court of tho Law
School. This case was tried somo time
ago but the jury failing to agree the
case was waived and argued to the
court. The counsel for tho plaintiff
in error was ClTarles Beavers. Tho
counsel for tho defendant in error was
A. N. Mathers. The court has taken
the case under advisement.

To Erect Addition.
Superintendent Chowlns Is figuring
the cost of erecting an addition to tho
shops building at tho State Farm. This
addition is intended to make more
room for the storage of tho varloiiB
kinds of machinery which manufac
turers send to tho farm for permanent
exhibition. The present room, forty
by sixty feet in dimensions, Is only
about one-third largo enough, and Is
packed full of gasollno engines, bin
ders, mowers, harrows, cultivators, and
almost every other sort of agricultural
and dairy machine. The addition now
being figured on Is to be of the same
dimensions as the present machinery
room, but Mr. Choyins desires to
build this two Btorles high, and to get
the beat results from tho money so ex
pended, proposes to fit up tho second
floor Into a room whore lectures can be
given to tho farm students. LaBt sum
mer Professor DavlBson visited a
large number of agricultural imple
ment manufactories and tho various
merits and defects of tho different ma
chines are explained to the embryonic
farmer. Many of the manufacturers
will send their products to tho Farm
upon request, and almost any machine
mado con be had simply by paying the
freight from tho place of manufacture
to tho Farm. If tho figures are within
reasonable bounds this now addition
now being figured on by Superinten
dent Chowlns will undoubtedly bo
