Rules of Missouri Valley Inter-Collegi-
ate Athletic Association States
Vote to include Nebraska.
The Athletic Bonrd met list nlsjlu
and had a long discusBion upon the
question of scheduling football games
with town and Wisconsin for next fal'.
These two schools demand that clit
games be played under the "Big Nine'
rules, to which the Nebraska boar l
is distinctly opposed. No conclusion
was -arrived at, however, and the flmu
decision was put off until a special
meeting thnt Is to be hold Wednesday

City meeting of the faculty representa

and Washington were present and vot
ed to include Nebraska as a charter
member making thereby a "Big Five."

was sent to the Nebraska Athleliu
Board with a strong invitation to join
the Conference. The Cornhusker
Board has taken no action toward be
coming a member of the association
but now since the "Big Nine" schools

tion on the rules to govern the games
with Nebraska, are considering the
proposition very seriously.

Cabinets Hold a Novel Progressive
Snowmd Slush last Saturday even
ing could not dampen the enthusiasm
of the Y. W. and Y. M. Cabinets, who
carried out all the details of the com
mittee's, mysteriously planned pro
gressive dinner. , At six o'clock about
thirty-five young people assembled at
the University Y. W. rooms to be
formed into ranks and marched away
somewhere, the destination not ex
actly knwon, but a hope pervading
all minds that they would find "festnl

Florence Parmalee and Le3lie Hlg
glns, chairmen of the two committees,
led the long column thru the "sludgy,

rooms, where the first course of the
dinner consisted of delicious hot
soup. From this aggravating appeti
zer th'ey were marched to the home of
Mrs. Kimball on 18th and G, where
they wore treated to a royal feed that
appeased tho appetites of the pedes
trians. Somewhat less zealous, but still in
a cheerful mood, they marched to the
home of Mrs. ZImner on 17th and L
where another festal spread greeted
them. Again they partook with what
ardour there still remained, and then
slowly plodded back to tho city Y. M.
C. A. w"here desert was served. After
this the brigade dtabanded and each
chose his own way homeward, thoroly
tired and thoroly pacified, Tho affair
was novel in. every respect, and all
agree that the committees desrve
praise for their ingenuity.
