The Cornhusker Will Not Appear Be-
" fore the Twenty-fifth.
It is now announced that owing to
further delays on the part of the print
ers,, the 1907 CornlniBker will not ap
pear until about the twenty-fifth of the
month. The copy has been placed with
the printers as rapidly as they could
use it and there has been no delay in
file reading of the proof, but there
have not been enough men at work
making up the forms" to get out the
book on time. The agreement wns
that the' printing should be fin
ished by April 30, last Tuesday,
but present Indications are that it will
not be completed before next Saturday.
There are yet eight forms to be made
up and since the workmen count that
the preparation of two forms a good
day's labor, there Is no very strong
likelihood of the Immediate comple
tion of this branch of the work. Each
book will contain 4G4 pages and will be
bound in stiff leather covers of two
colors. The edition will reach 1,000.
'The total cost of the publication will
be considerably more than was antici
pated, It is found also. The estimate
made dt first placed the cost of tho en
gravings considerably below five hun
dred dollars; now it Is found it will
exceed six hundred. Tho work of tho
vurlous artists will cost something like
a hundred dollars, incidental expenses
will amount to five hundrqd dollars,
and the printing to twenty-two hun
dred dollars. The total cost will ap
proach tho thirty-five hundred mark.

Regent Allen Brings Suit Against the
Regent Allen on behalf of John J.
Ledwlth has brought mandamus pro
ceedings against the state auditor to
compel him to Issue warrants agalnBt
tho -1-mlll levy fund belonging ,to .the
University. Mr. Ledwlth has a claim
of $25 against the school and the suit
Is a.frjendly affair to test the ruling
of tho auditor that no warrants wlH bo
Issued until th6' money from tho 1
mill levy Is actually In tho treasury.
Mr. Allen holds this ruling nullifies
the law providing for' the registration
of state warrants. The case will come
up today in supreme court.

Out of Eight.
The committee with which is vestod.
the regulation of .tho requirements to
Phi Bota Kappa has announced that
for next year tho rule made, that
Seniors to be eligible to membership
must havo completed seven out of
eight of tho prescribed UneB of Btudy,
has been changed temporarily. The
committee feels that, considering the
short time this'rulo has boon before
tho University public, It would bo nn
Injustice to tho prosent Junior class
were all its momborB required to live
up to the lotter of this law and con
sequently the requirements for next
year will bo that the student to bo
eligible to election must have com
pleted only six and a half lines of
study out of the prescribed eight lines.
This allows more freedom and thoso
In the Junior class will havo greater
latitude In arranging their courses.
The required subjects aro , as fol
1. Mother Tongue: English Litera
ture, Rhetoric, 10 hours.
2. CIbsbIcb: Greek, Latin, 10 hours. t
3. Modern Language: Fronch, Ger

cmatlcs, 10 hours. ., .
i 7; PhysTcal Science, ri Chemistry,
Physics, 6, hours. ' . ' 4
' 8. Biology: Botany, Zoology, 0 hoilrs.
Now under tjie now regulations tho
Btudent will havo to complete, for In
stance, supposing a case, tho required
numbor of hours In Biology, Physical
Science, Exact Science, Philosophy,
History, and Modern. Language; in
tho Classics) ho will then have but 5
hours to work into his schedule and in
Mother Tongue In aucir a case he will
havo no work to . arrange for. ,-Jt 1b
probable that after next year, how
ever, tho full ' requrrem6'nfB,,'6rB0ven
out of eight lines will be lived up to.
This year, It will bo remembered, but
six out of eight lines wore required.
Tho committee is planning, a.t pres
ent to get a copy of the constitution,
by-laws and requirements of the or
ganization into the hands of each
Junior within a, short period and all
will havp ample time to "get them
selves Into line so far as eligibility
goes, if they care to do so.
