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 (Continued on Page 4.) GOVERNMENT INSPECTION. 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 (Continued on Page 4.)

The Events Are Pulled Off In Rain and Mud Scores Do Not Represent True Merits of Teams. ft -" .lV- t9000009p00QQ0 o o oooe 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 follows: 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 inches.
