Tilt GLEE CLUB
DIRECTOR GILLESPIE PREDICTS A
George Johnston Leader of Mandolin
Orchestra Ireland Back Man
ager Agee Plans Trip.
Director Budd Gillespie, when in
terviewed yesterday In regard to the
University Glee Club and Mandolin
Orchestra, said: "Prospects are par
ticularly roseate for one of the great
est clubs that was ever In the West."
In this opinion Mr. Gillespie Is appar
ently not alone, for all members of.
the club of last yoar who are back In
the University are enthusiastically
pushing plans for reorganization.
. Bulletins have been posted on the
bulletin board In University Hall ever
slnce registration started, urging new
men to try out for places-in both or
ganizations, and every day tills week
from 9:00 a. m. until noon application
blanks may be secured In the halls of
the Library and University Hall. There
are openings on every part of the Glee
Club and In the Mandolin Orchestra
men are wanted to play the mandolin,
guitar, flute, violin, cello, clarinet and
liarj. Director Gillespie urges every
man who can sing or play one of the
above instruments to put in his appli
cation. ' AP least two hundred appli
cants are expected and Mr. Gillespie
stated that the size of the clubs will
hot be limited if good material shows
up. At the present writing more than
thirty men have applied for member
ship from the freshman class alone.
; Practically all of the men .to whom
the-success of last year's clubs is due
are back 'in the Unlvprslty. George
. Ireland; the star first tenor and
"whistling bard," who had jptepded
to go to Chicago this year, has finally
been prevailed upon to remain in Lin
coln and will be at his-place on the
-tenor end. George Johnston, Lincoln's
leading tenor, besides filling his usual
place in .the Glee Club, will also as
sume direction of the Mandolin Or
chestra and will be its leader for tho
Carl "Beghtol, Louis Meyer, arid
Charles Duer ar.e all back in school
arid are expected to fill their usual
places. Sprague will not bejpack but
there are two new mandolin "sharks"
who will take hiB placer One of these
.men "will assist Mr. Johnston with the
Orchestra and it is the intention to
make the club about thirty strong.
Ed. Johnston, "coon artiste", and
Glen Mason, the "sweet tenor singer,"
are on hand and Chester Parks will'
be at his ojd place at the piano and in
the ranks of the baritones.
The finances of the clubs are in ex
cellent condition. 'From the financial
difficulties of last year, Mr. Agee, 'the
present manager, has succeeded in re
ducing the indebtedness to a .very Jow
figure and has already booked a num
. "ber of state dates with good guaran
, tees, .Mr. . Agee will c .make no an
npune'ement about a big trip until all
'' arrangements are completed. It Is
known, however, that a Colorado trip
is under consideration' arid that there
is tlie possibility of a still longer trip,
perhaps as' far south as Texas.
Director Gillespie announces that the
affairs of the clubs will be run on a
strictly business bnslB thruout the yoar
ami that delay In application for mem
bership will seriously Injuro the ap
plicant's chance for election unless
there Is a satisfactory reason for It.
There Is no foe necessary for appli
cation and all applicants are expectod
to act promptly.

Former Nebraska Instructor Accepts
Call from Badger Institution.
Professor Cook, formerly of this
UnivorBity, but for tho past two yoars
Instructor in law In tho University of
Missouri, has accepted an Invitation
to become a mombor of tho faculty of
the University of Wisconsin, where he
Glen Mason, captain and fullback of
Nebraska's team, received his football
training at tho L. H. S., playing end
for two years. Ho Is now playing tils
last year on the. Varsity, and Ib one
of tho moBt popular captains that Ne
braska .has" ever had. Ab this year's
fullback ho will bring to the game the
experience and cunning of throe
strenuous years at that position. v
will Instruct in the college of law.
JThe many friends of' Professor Cook,
among both the. faculty mombors and
alumni, of tho University of Nebraska,
will be greatly pleased to learn qf his
rapid advancement In his profession.
Although a comparatively young man,
Professor Cook Is today recognized as
one of America's leading Instructors
Professor Cook goeB to the Univer
sity of Wisconsin at 'a marked Increase
of salary; yet It was not for that rea
son atone that he left the University
of Missouri. Tho former institution
furnishes far greater opno.rtunl.ties for
research work and original investiga
tion tl;nn Is afforded at the Missouri
school. It was fora similar reason
that Professor Cook left Nebraska, .the
University of Missouri offering him
more leisure time in which to write
and publish his works on law.
During the Bummer quarter, Profes
sor Cook lectured on criminal law at
tho " University of Chicago.

J. H. Moggs, one of tho men whq

November, visited Ihq University Mon

had for carrying off Western h,onrs
again this year. "With tho exception

Relative to the revised rules, Mr..
Meggs said that It was the general
opinion among football men, both play
ers and coaches, that they will prove
a detriment rather than a benefit to
the game. Especially true is this re
