MAY TOUR THE STATE.
Dramatic Club Would Like to. Make a
Trip With a Play.
It is rumored that tho executive
committeo of the Dramatic 'Club has
under consideration the advisability
of a tour of the state, producing some
well-knovn play one of Shakespeare's
in all probability. As yet no definite
plana havo been made ,and deepest
secrecy surrounds the entire subject,
but if it is found to be practicable
some such trip will undoubtedly be
made, performances being given in a
number of the smaller towns in south
eastern Nebraska. If it is deoided to
have such a trip it will be a wonderful
incentive for all who have any lean
ings toward tho draamtlc art to join
the club In order to be placed on the

Officers' Club Organized.
Tho commissioned officers of the
cadet battalion met after drill last
evening and perfected an organization
for tho year. Major Crites was elected
president and Lieutenant Jackson,
socrotary. -The principal business of
the meeting was to eolect the master
of ceremonies and the chairman for
the officers' hop, which occurs annual
ly. Just before Lent begins. Q. IV.
Cheney, first lieutenant of Company
B, was elected chairman) arid II. H.
Thompson, adjutant, was elected mas-
tor of ceremonies. Tho date for tho
hop has riot been settled as yet.
Basket-Ball League Formed.
Representatives of the leudlng uni
versities of tho middle west met in
Chicago tho day aftor Thanksgiving
and formed an intorcolloglato baxket
ball leaguovto be known as tho West
ern Intercollegiate Basket-Bail Asso
ciatlpn. It will bo composed of teams repre
senting Chicago, Northwestern, Illi
nois, Minnesota, Wisconsin and pos
sibly Iowa. Tho schodule for the sea
.son, which' will start immediately
aftorChrl8tmas and will bo ton woeks
in etxent, is to include two games for
each team with every other team, to
be played at alternate gymnasiums.
Conference eligibility rules will gov
ern the league, but Freshmen will not
be barred, as the season does not com
mence until after the end of tho first
semester. Professor Angell of Wis
consin was selected as chairman of
the association and F. E. Reed of Min
nesota as secretary.
Heretofore basket-ball has had no
intercollegiate standing, tho different
institutions making their own eligi
bility rules'- and matches being ar
ranged between the colleges them
selves without reference to an Inter
collegiate body. The formation of tho
league will place basket-ball on a par
wflh other forms of athletics.
