Students Engage in the Annual Demon
stration. About two hundred and fifty Univer
sity students indulged in the annual
"night-gown parade" last Friday even
Ing, in celebration of the competitive
drill which was held that afternoon.
They marched through the theaters,
the Auditorium where the Pan-Hellenic
dance was taking place, a drug
store and other places, as well as pa
rading all the down-town streets for
about three hours.
At eight o'clock they left the Univer
sity campus, led by two buglers, and
marched to the Chancellor's home,
where a rousing cheer was given.
Then, after marching through the Audi
torium, interrupting for a time the an
nual Pan-Hellenic dance, they ylslted
RIggs' Pharmacy, where they wero
treated at the soda fountain. When
they approached the Oliver Theater
the lights In the lobby were turned out
and the doors locked, but the paraders
broke through the stage door and
swarmed on to the stage in the midst
of a dramatic climax. The beautiful
heroine Is said to have fainted limply
into the hero s arms, while the villain
stood In the wings with folded arms
and bowed head, angrily twisting his
moustache, while his eyes flashed with
resentment at the Interruption of his
perfidies. The audience, however, was
good-humored and applauded the stu
dents. After going through the
Woman's Building at Twelfth and Q
streets, they went to the Majestic
Theater and were allowed to enter,
staying about half an liour. With a
cheer for the Majestic, they went to
the Lyric. A special performance was
put on for them after the second even
ing show and the students roundly
cheered the performers' who consented
to- do this. Prom the Lyric they re
turned to the campuB and disbanded.
The parade was more orderly than
usual. The street cars were not mo

Captain Oury of Fort Crook Inspects
University Cadets.
Promptly at 2 o'clock yesterday af
ternoon the four companies of the
battalion of University Cadets wore
assembled on Twelfth street, between
S and R streets. The occasion was
the annual government inspection by
a United States army officer. Captain
Harry Oury of Fort Crook was do
tailed by the United States govern
ment to do the Inspecting here. After
passing In review, the battalion wus
formed In columns of companies and
prepared for Inspection. Captain Oury,
followed by the commanding olficnr of
each company, and by Captain Wor
klzer and staff, passed slowly down the
ranks, carefully Inspecting the arms
and general appearance of ovory man.
Then followed a few battalion move
ments, with Major Wasson command
ing. After this, the companies wore
drilled separately in both extended
and close order. The next formation
was "dress parade," followed by a
sample of "guard mounting." The com
panies were then dismissed and after n
series of questions to the officers of the
battalion by Captain Ourv, the inspec
tion was over, with the" exception of
the clerical work of the department.
Tile Inspection, lasting nearly three
hours, was perhaps the longest and
most rigid held for several years. Cup
tain Worklzer is to be highly compli
mented, not only upon the general ap
pearance of the battalion, but also up
on the finer .details of the drill of the
battalion. Captain Oury seemed to bo
quite favorably impressed with the
work of the battalion Itself, but in re
gard to the suitable and oonvonlent
drill grounds which the' University
agrees to provide, he, of course, Is not
favorably Impressed. In fact, the bat

In the flrBt annual track meet Of tho
Missouri Valley Conference, hold last
Saturday at Elm Ridge Park, Kansas
City, Nebraska was able to win only
elovon polntB. By doing this thoy tied
for fifth place with Kansas, whom they
defeated so decisively two weeks ago.
The final scores of the meet wero as
AmeB 52, Missouri 22, Drake 19,
Washington 13, Nebraska 11, Kansas
11, and Iowa 7.
Tho meet took place under tho poor
est conditions Imaginable. On tho
night before tho meet there was a
heavy rain, putting tho track In abom
inable condition. On Saturday morn
ing the track was harrowed so as to
loosen it up .and dry It If possible, but
It began to rain again soon after noon
and kept It up all during tho meet.
The sprints and hurdle events wero
run on the grass within the enclosure,
as fast running was out of tho question
on the-muddy track. The distance
events were run there, however, and
the slow time made tells the whole
stor in itself.
Ames was represented by an aggre
gation of twenty-six men. Their dis
tance and weight men were largo and
their size and weight made them in
vincible in tho mud. It is generally
conceded, moreover, that the final
scores of the meet do not represent by
any means tho relative strength pjC-the
contesting teams. 7 T.
The only two events which.- cotno
anywhere near being the real thing
wore the high Jump and the polo .vault.
These wero held in a pavilion where
the space was cramped, but tho heights
made were very creditable. Knode of
Nebraska was one of three to, tie for
first place In tho high Jump at 5 feet
10 Inches. McMasters of Nebraska
tied for second In the pole vault w,lth
Challis of Washington, at 10 feet 10
