But Fail to Secure Chairman of Party
Honors wore about evenly dlvidod
yesterday In the Freshman-Sophomore
class scrap, which is -generally under
stood Is but the preliminary to the
real contest for supremacy today. The
Sophomores were able to easily secure
C. A. Currio, the master of ceremonies,
yesterday morning, but experienced
apparently unsurmountable difficulties
when they trlod to spirit off McLaugh
lin, the chairman of the party com
mittee. The Sophomores wore on the alert
early yesterday .morning for any favor
able opportunity to secure the much
desired men. Having learned that
the master of ceremonies was at the
Sigma Alpha Upsllon fraternity house
and thnt his "body guard" consisted
of but a single freshman, about ten
Sophs after having a rig easily se
cured their victim and carried him
off to seclusion.
The "second act" In the scrap was
just the opposite of the earlier one.
The Sophomores planned to sleze upon
the chairman of the committee as his
cadet company entered the armory
and by quick work escape with their
man before the "Freshles" could make
, any resistance.
Much to their disappointment, how
ever, an lntercal of several minutes
elapsed between the time the com
panies entered the armory and un
fortunately for the Sophomores the
last company to quit the field. Under
these circumstances, with the body
of Freshmen, who had been dlsmised
from the other companies, standing
about the armory door, the "Sophs"
seemed to lose some of their usual
grit and alowed "The Chairman" to
pass quietly Into the armory,
i Once inside his fellow classmen
crowded around him and by employ
ing their superior numbers to good
effect they charged down the stair
way past the .Sophomore dray and
succooded in landing him safely In a
hack which the freshmen had on hand
having anticipated that some such at
tempt would be made. The Sopho
mores put up a spirited flglit consid
ering their inferior numbers, but the
Freshmen unhitched their team and
while a small party of "Freshles"
pulled the dray off down Twelfth
street the "Sophs" struggled in vain
to koep their would be victim from
reaching his hack.
Purdue, 5; Nebraska, 3.
Purduo proceodod to pick out the
red oars of corn yesterday and kissed
Nllsson's curves enough times to
bring In five runs. Tho 'Varsity was
evidently a little off color for they
could only connect with the opposing
pitcher for three tallies. But instead,
they aided their opponents by mak
ing eleven erora. Nilason cannot bo
censured for ho pitched good ball but
the support given him was not of tho
best. It Is hoped that tho team will
lift the cloud today and let a little
sunlight shine in the shnpe of a victory.

All Engineering Student are Invited, i t
Work on First Wing to Begin in
Work on the wing of the Museum
building, for which tho last session
of the Nebraska legislature appropri
ated $50,000 on tho request of the
Board of Regents, will probably begin
early In July. The present room oc
cupied by the collection already In
tho hands of the cureatur Is entirely
Inadequate, many of tho specimens be
ing at presont stored In the tunnelH
on the campus and other places where
they have ben put In emergency
casus. For this reason several at
tempts have been made to secure
more room and these finally resulted
In the request made by tho regents
last fall when tho legislature was In
The structure will be located be
tween the building now occupied by
Professor Sweezy and Memorial hall.
The building will be made flro proof,
and will have cement floors and parti
tions. It Is erected for the exclusive
uso of the department of geology and
tho state museum. This will be
the first of four wings tho others being
addod to tho first as fast as the funds
for the purpose can be secured.
Tho regents' committee appointed
for that purpose has decided on the
man whohi they will recommend for
architect, but owing to the fact that
their action Is subject to the approval
of the regents they refuse to make
their decision public.
The erection of this building will
make it possible for tho state to enjoy
the benefit of the $1,000 a year for five
years, to be used in geological Inyestl
gatlon In tho state, which ex-Regent
Morrill generously offered to place at
the disposal of tho state geologist
whonover adequate room for storing
the spoolmens could bo secured. Mr.
"Morrill Is a pioneer Nebrasknn and
has always taken an actlvo InteroBt
!n-the pushing forward of thlB work.
It Is largely due to his personal in
terest in tho work that the offer of
the donation was mfiue."'
