P. B. K. ELECTION
NAMES OF INITIATE8 FROM CLASS
OF 1907 ANNOUNCED.
Twenty-nine Out of One Hundred and
Ninety-six Receive Honor Men
and Women tn Proportion.
This 'morning at chapel time Dr.
Ellery Davis announced the names of
those In the Senior class elected to
Phi Beta Kappa. The list in its alpha
betical order follows:
Luella Agee, Albert Aaron, Thorne
Browne, Hugh Craig, Vera Darling,
Grace Denny, Dale Drain, Georgia
Field, Anna Foster, Dell Gibson, Edwin
Guthrie, Margaret Hannah, Wm. Han
nan, Scena Hansen, Fred Harden, Les
lie Higgins, Mira Kerns, Anna Krum
.bach, Lucile. Long, Emily Moore,
Edith Mttttoon, Mary Morgan, Daisy
Needham, Mabel Pepoon, Raymond
Pool, Vesta Shively, Roy Sunderland,
Edith Webster, Albert Wolf.
It is Interesting to notice that of this
list of twenty-nine, twelve are men and
.seventeen, women, and since there aro
eighty-eight of the" former and one
hundred eight of the latter in tt
class, the numbers of men and women
on the list are very nearly In propor
tion. This is the first time it has oc
curred thus In some seven or eight
years. The best grade made was 121
hours of 13 and 5 hours of G; the low
est grade in the list was 40 hours of E,
43 hours of G and 11 hours of M.
, In malting up the list of those to bo
elected, first, only those non-technical
'students with at least a few hours of
E wore considered. About half the
class were eligible on this considera
tion. Other tests for eligibility be
came operative. Each student to. be
eligible had to have 75 hours credit
In the University of Nebraska and to
have covered six of "the eight lines of
study outlined by the chapter. In the
present case this latter test was not
lived up to strictly because not thoro
ly understood by all, and three or four
of the candidates lacked an hour or
two in their sixth line. Even then,
however, about a dozen names failed
to pass muster because the students
lacked too many hours In the sixth
line of study.
The proportion of the class to be
elected and the tempering of the eligi
bility rule are matters left to the Fac
ulty Council. The proportion of the
class of 1907 elected Is about one
seventh. It should be understood thorbly that
the election Is a very formal matter.
It might be called almost perfunotory.
The grades actually made by the stu
. dent and filed with the Registrar by
the professors are what count and
all that count, after the candidate
passes the other eligibility rules con
cerning breadth of course, and so on.
Tho Junior hats arrived a few days
ago and are now 'a common sight on
the campus. They are a pearl-gray
cruBher or telescope (at tho option of
the wearer) with a red felt band. It
is 'the opinion of many that this Is the
neatest class "lid" that has made its
x appearance here since the '05 Senior"

A. H. Lundin, '06, Writes of Big Initial
On the evening of the fourth of
March at 6:30 the former studonts of
the University of Nebraska gathered
for dinner at the Seattle Commercial
Alter the breaking of bread, Henry
E. -Wilcox, '00, arose and the old "U-U-U.-N-I!"
echoed and resounded thru
the halls. E. J. -Carver, '98, an old Ne
braska fullback brought back live
scenes, speaking on the subject "Pig
Skin Victories." He pointed out the
fact that It was the scrappy, nervy
fight, In victory or defeat, which had
given Nebraska the prominent place
she occupies In the football world.
John P. Hartman, '70 relutod "Un
told Tales of Long Ago" and In re
turn was elected president of the Seat

fessor Henry L. Boolby, '05, now of the

the office of secretary-treasurer. The
object of the organization, as declared
by its constitution, Is to keep alive the
old "Cornhusker spirit," to strengthen
the ties which bind us to our Alma
Mater and to each other, and to ex
tend the hand of fellowship to all ar
rivals from the University. The old
enthusiasm for the University lives
At the banquet, Chancellors and fac
ulty were praised and extolled. Hon

inence were referred to as "Ed.," "Bill

secrets of the past were explored. It
was a great meeting. The thirty-three
members of the club contemplate giv

to which all University of Nebraska
men of the state will be Invited.

STUDENTS DO CARE.
Question of Text Booka at Cost Ap
In section 15 of tho act to estab
lish the University of Nebraska provi
sion is made for the furnishing of text
books to the studonts at cost by the
Regents of the University. Tho act
was passed In 18G9 but no action of
any kind had been taken either by
the Regents or the legislature, up to
the time when Representative Cone of
Saunders County recently proposed an
amendment to the general appropria
tion bill for tho University, providing
that tho $5,000 appropriated for
"books" should be used for
this purpose. This amendment has
met with tho approval of the Board of
Regents and will soon como before the
legislature. The argument has been
used before when this matter was up
for consideration, that University stu
dents did not care very much Whether
they got their books at cost or not,
but now an effort will bo made to show
that this contention Is altogether er
roneous J All 3tudents who- have been Inter
viewed are very decided In their ex
pressions in favor of the amendment
and It Is urged that all with any Influ
ence or acquaintance at the Capitol
get busy and show their attitude to
ward the question.

WITH WISCONSIN AND IOWA DE
"Big Nine" Schools Refuse Ruling of
Jthq Nebraska Board 8t. Louis
Thanksgiving Other Notes.
Nebraska will not moot Wisconsin
and Iowa on the gridiron noxt fall."
This announcement was made by
Manager Engor yesterday aftornoon
upon the receipt of letters from tho
two "Big Nino" schools, stating that
thoy would not play Nebraska noxt
year unless the Cornhuskors would
agree to bo governed by tho "Three
year Rule" and tho "A. B. Rule." Mr.
Eager Immediately notlflod tho two
Conference schools that tho Nobraska
board was still "standing pat" and
would not recodo from Its position.
Negotiations for games with Wiscon
sin and Iowa will bo dropped.
Tho two rules which Nebraska
would not agree to aro:
1. "No student shall participate in
intercollegiate athletics for moro than
three years In tho aggregate. To bo
offectlvo September 1, 1900, except for
students who participate in intercolle
giate athletics in tho academic yoar
1905-00; for these It will be effective
Decembor 1, 1900.'
2. "Participation shall bo confined to
students who have not graduated from
any department of a college or uni
versity. Eftectivo Septombor 1, 1900.'
Tho failure of Nobraska to agreo
with Wisconsin and Iowa upon these
rules, means that other schools will
havo to bo secured for games on Octo
ber 20 and November 16, as those dates
were scheduled to bo filled by tho "Big
Nino" teams. Manager Eager oxpects
no trouble in this lino, however, for
there are many strong elevens that
wish to meet tho Cornhuskors noxt
fall, and are anxious to havo the dales
left vacant by Wisconsin and Iowa.
The Thanksgiving date in the Corn
husker schedule has been filled and
Nebraska will play the football team
of the University of St. Louis at the
Missouri metropolis on turkey day
K. C. Meet.
The second handicap indoor meet of
the K. C. A. C. which was held last Fri
day night was a decided' success.
About three hundred athletes com
peted, Missouri, Kansas, and Nebraska
Universities, William Jewell College,
K. C. A. C. and M. A. C. being among
the organizations represented. One
world's record- was equaled In the In
vitation fifty yard dash, Archie Hahn
of Michigan reeling It off In Ave and
two-fifth seconds, and all the perform
ances were high class. Benedict
won the half mile In an exciting race,
passing his last compelltqr within ten
feet of the tape. The time' one minute
fifty-nine and four fifths seconds with
a ten yard handicap was' remarkably
fast. Alden ran a good' race In tho
mllor finishing third. This event was
won from scratch by Jackson of Mis
souri, one of the fastest distance run
ners the Missouri Yalley has ever pro
duced. - None of the other of the Ne
