War Department Will Maintain All
Cadet Companies Here Until
State Has Time to Act
Cadet drill will be a feature of
unlverelty life thlB year as other
years until after the state legislature
adjourns late In the Bprlng. Whether
It will be continued after that time
depends on the attitude of the legls
' lators In providing for suitable drill
The battalion organization haB been
put In Jeopardy because of the ac
tion of the university regents In
erecting the new engineering build
ing on the old athletic field. Ne
braska field served as parade ground
for tho cadets and it Is stipulated
In the act of CongresB under which
the Nebraska institution receives a
money grant of several thousands
that such drill facilities be provided.
If they are not put at the disposal
of the military department the ap
propriation is Bubject to discontinu
ance. The appropriation for this year was
made .byXonsresa. in. Jnnn..anrt,ifl.
now subject to the order of tho uni
versity. Since that time the govern
ment inspector has recommended
that further appropriations not be
allowed and that the detail of com
mnndant and equipment be withdrawn
If Immediate steps are not taken to
comply with the provisions of the
law. The Nebraska legislature meets
In January and If it does not show
a definite Intention 6f doing some
thing, it is altogether probable that
Captain Worklzer will be recalled and
the war department will no longer
sanction the drill maintained by the
Drill This Year.
No such action will be taken, how
ever, until late in the spring, which
insures a practically full course for
this "years battalion. The command
was organized at 5 o'clockyesterday
afternoon in five companies and a hos
pital corps. Company I is the new
company, It being under the command
of Captain Coop. Other captains are
Holland of Company A, Jones of Com
pany B, Xanger of Company C, Crites
of Company D and Streoter of the
Hospital Corps. B. A. Froyd is major
of the battalion and Cramer is adjut
ant. Further appointments will prob
ably bo announced shortly.
According to the figures at the reg
istrar's office about 450 men are sub
ject to the drill requirement This
is somewhat larger than the enroll
ment last year. The actual strength
of the battalion will of course be
somewhat less than 400 owing to the
fact that a number will be excused
or reprieved for various reasons.
These figures do not include the four
companies at the state farm, 'which
will not be organized at present.
The Pershing Rifles will furnish
uniforms by much the same system
as they pursued last year. Tho out
fits will cost $14.60, each including
suit, cap and leggings. This Is slight
ly less than the amount paid by last
year's cadets. Chairman Mahood of
the committee urges that all cadets
be measured at the office of the de
partment at once so that as little
dolay as possible may be experienced
In getting the battalion in uniform.
Captain Workizer returned Satur
day from an extended vacation trip.
He visited nt Atlantic City and other
eastern points. Part of his time was
spent at West Point, tho national
military school for officers. Later he
visited Fort Riley, Kansas.

So far as the registration returns
are any Indication, the University of
Nebraska will have, during the com
ings year; the largestatendance in ltB
history. Yesterday 136 students reg
istered, making a total registration
thUB far of 1785, as against 1,568 for
last year. This is a gain of nearly 15
per cent. The -opinion was expressed
.to the registrar's office that at leas':
150 would register today.
While no definite Information is yet
available concerning the registration
in the different-departments, it was
stated that the engineering depart
ment was keeping well in the lead.
Although the registration returns
have not been given out, the chemis
try department reports a heavier rush
than in any previous year. The per
sonnel of the force Is the same as
last year with tho exception of Mr.
Darnebey, who haB beqn promoted to
assistant instructor. Several men
have been-worklng "in" flie laboratories
since August 1, and everything is in
fine shape for the year's courses.
Rejoicing and regret characterized
the conversation among the enthusi
asts at Antelope park yesterday after
noon. The regret was caused by tho
news that Ex-Captain Charles Borg
will be Ineligible to play on tho Corn
husker eleven this fall, all former
(newspaper reports to the contrary
Several days ago tho return of tho
famous ex-captain was hailed with de
light by the many admirers who have
not forgotten tho old gridiron hero.
At that time It was given out that
Borg would bo eligible for all games
except the one with Minnesota, but
that the contract for that game would
not permit his participating In it.
With Borg back again tho center
position could safely bo Intrusted to
him, leaving Collins to fill the vacancy
at tackle caused by Matters failure to
return. This seemed to bo nn oaBy
solution of an Intricate problem, but
Is has proved to bo of no use.

of the school year beforo an appre
ciative audience' of university stu
dents His speech was forceful and
possessed of excellent figures.
The chancellor, while expressing no
serious objections to a technical edu
cation, yet pleaded for a broader edu
cation. He declared that tho young
men and women of today need a schoV
astic course which broadens anden-
larges tho mental vision. In thbChan
cellor's opinion one of tho finest fields
in a university curriculum b that of
fered by courses in sociology. It
drills like calculus; It fills as does
perhaps no other study known.

William Jennings Bryan, Jr., son
of tho great commoner and thrico
leador of the Democrnoy in its raco
for tho White Houso, Is being boomed
for president of the class of 1011 by
a number of tho young man's admir
ers. The campaign was bogun Inst
week without tho sanction or know
ledge of the young Bryan and Is now
bolng pushed quietly and assidously.
The managers of tho boom aro pur
suing "gum-shoo tactics and claim
they are making many votes for their
candidate. They have enlisted sev
eral girls in their work and aro go
ing after the co-od vote to clinch it
before other candidates begin pulling
wires. They claim that they hove half
of tho supporet of tho class pKlged
to their candidate
There Is but one other candidate in
tho field at tho present time and ho
hnB once held tho highest office In his
clasB. That candidate Is Ralph E.

the first semester of Its freshman

Weaverllng was elected president
of his class a year ago this fall after
a short campaign, but was. suspended
from the university with three other
freshmen for kidnapping the sopho-
moro master of ceremonies, His sus
pension was later made pormanent and
he went to the University of Kansas
whero he attended school for the sec-1
ond semester. He returned toNe
braska last fall, being allowed to reg
ister hero again. ,
Some of his classmates look upon
him as a martyr to tho cause of class,
spirit and think that by putting him in .
office ho will bo vindicated. They)
have not done much active work as
yet, but have bpon "feeling around",
to get the sentiment of tho class on,'
