Second Year Students Hold Spirited
Tho Sophomores awoko yestorday to
tho fact that In class spirit and push
they have been eclipsed by their youn
ger rivals, tho Freshmen.
A meeting more remarkable for Its
unanimity than for Its numbers wa3
held yesterday and It was then decided
to appoint a committee to make all
arrangements for a Sophomore Inform
al party to bo hold In the very near fu
ture. The Sophomores are certainly to
be congratulated for making this move
which may help to revive the class en
ergy sufficiently to bring a large crowd
to their meetings. Mr. Benedict read

Iowa University Has Not Joined the
Tho report that tho Slate Unlvor-
slty of Iowa had Joined tho proposed
"JBIg Five" appears to bo erroneous.
Tho Iowa Athletic authorities deny
that their representative at tho Kan
sas City conforenco Saturday waB any
thing more than a "looker-on," and
say ho had no power to enter tho or
ganization. Sentiment at Iowa seems,
however, to bo In favor or a now con
ference body similar to tho "Big Nine."
Iowa is interested in. the "Big Flvo,'
of courso, because that university usu
ally plays one or moro of the western
football teams that are to compose tho
"Five." Nothing definite has boon
done by Iowa as yet in regard to tho

Infinite wisdom and goodness to take

COLLEGE SETTLEMENT &ENEFIT
TO BE DECIDED NOVELTY.
Company of Native Swedish Dancers
to Appear In Folk Plays In Memo-
. Hat Hall Friday Evening.
"Unique" is tho only adjective that
can define concisely tho nature of tho
program which is to bo rendered on
Friday ovonlng of. this wook in Mo
morial Hall by tho troupo of Swedish
dancors which tho College Settlement
Board has engaged to perform for a
College Settlement Benefit.
Contrary to tho rumor that has In
somo mannor come into circulation
that tho dances which aro to bo on ex
hibition Friday ovonlng aro to bo glvon
by Swedish students In tho University
or by members of Mrs. Clapp's gym
miBium classes, tho truth of tho mat
ter is that tho performers aro Swodos
who havo only recently comp to Amer
ica In a trained troupo for tho ospeclal
purposo of touring tho United States
with their high class entertainment of
native dances and folk plays.
Tho dancers are twelve in number,
with two fiddlers In the troupo be
sides, and each ono of them will bo
In tho provincial cbstumo of a district
of Sweden. Tho dances which they
glvo aro said, by. those who havo had
tho privilege of attending their enter
tainment, to be tho acmo of graco and
artistic posing. The dances, of course,
aro not at all In tho naturo of our mod-"
era round danco, but consist chiefly
of rythmical movement and stops of
an unusually pleasing type.
Ab bns been stated in tho Nebraskan
before, tho dances of this troupe aro
tho result of a movement by tho folk
lore societies of Sweden which were
organized about 1897. They fropre-i
sent tho lifo of tho common people In
all its picturesque variety and are of
value to the student who takes an in
terest In sociology and the history of
the nations as well as to tho seckor
after an entertaining spectacle.
There is a movement on foot amorfg
the Swedish students of the Univer
sity and tho Swedish citizens of Lin
coln to tender an informal reception
to the members of the troupo immedi
ately after the conclusion of their pro
gram In Memorial Hall on Friday even
ing. It Is probable that tho affair will
bo carried thru and If "it is, ,it will af
ford an opportunity that will undoubt
edly bo very acceptable to many of tho
audlonco to come In' personal contact
with representatives of tho moro pow
erful and progressive of tho Scandi
The net proceeds of tho entertain
ment will be devoted to College Set
tlement work in general and to the
establishment , of a Manual, Training
department for both boys and girls in
tho Settlement house at an early date.
The work of the College Settlement is
too well known to need exposition
hero. It is sufficient to say-in this
connection that the new department
Is almost a vital necessity and that at
the present time the Board has not the
wherewithal required for its establish
ment' and maintenance.
