THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
READY FOR CAMPAIGN
FRATERNITIES WILL 800N BEGIN
RULES ARE NOW. VERY STRICT
No Activity Permitted Before the
Third Friday In October and
Pledging la Prohibited Be
While rushing and pledging among
the Bororltlos of tho unlvorslty camo
to a close luBt Friday ovenlng, tho
rules adopted by tho Intor-Fraternlty
council provent rushing among the
fraternlUes until tho third Friday In
Octobor. This rushing prevonts the
bld-tlmo whirlwind rushing which
was a featuro of tho opening of
school ovory year, and nlBO makes It
posslblo for the fraternities to use
greater caro In tho selection of thoir
men and makoB it possible for fresh
mon to know tho men In tho different
Tho inter-Fraternity counoll, which
is given full power by tho university
authorities to regulato fraternity af
fairs, is composed of ono alumnuB and
one actlvo member from each academ
lo fraternity and also one member of
tho faculty. Professor Barbour 1b now
president of tho council.
Date for Pledging.
According to tho-rulos now In force,
"no fraternity shall pledge or Initiate
any now Btudqnt In either semester
until after tho mld-semcster reports
aro rocclved In tho registrar's ofllco,
and not even then shall any now stu
dent bo pledged or Initiated whose
name appears on tho delinquency list,
or who 1b reglBtorod for lesB than
Concerning the commencement of
tho rushing season tho rules state
"that no student Bhall bo entertained
within or without the chapter house
by or in tho Interests of any fraterni
ty, before tho third Friday In Octo
ber. No now student shall be Invited
to functions given by tho fraternities
or bo entertained by them except on
Friday evenings and Saturdays.
Ono rulo which has meant a great
deal to tho fraternities 1b tho ono
which forbids fraternity men from
mooting now students at the train.
This used to be one of the favorite
methods of rushers and grew with the
years until it became a common thing
for fraternity men to go as many as
thirty miles to meet a freshman. To
say tho least this rule proves a great
relief for the fraternities.
Punishment for Violation.
Tho punishment provided for in
case the above rules are violated,' Is
severe enough to make them well ob
served. Tho rulOB of the Fraternity
council provides that "If any fraterni
ty shall violate the rulo of thlB coun
cil with reference to rushing or pledg
ing of a student, such fraternity shall
not bo allowed to pledge or Initiate
such student wlthlna period of one
year from the date of such violation.
Any student pledged or initiated in
violation of tho rules of tho Inter-Fra-tornlty
council shall bo liable to, expul
sion from the university, and itho
chapter shall be publicly reprimanded
as directed by the council."
Tho council has no regular meet
ings, but comes together upon call of
the president, whenever any question
arises whicho must be decided by tho
council. It is expected that a meeting
will be hold within the next few days
to consider revisions in the rules.
The different fraternities in the
University of Nebraska are now pro
paring for the rushing Beason which
Is soon to open. As many have
changed their residences during the
summer there is a vast amount of
work to be done In getting the houses
Jn presentable' shape. When, how
ever, rushing season finally opens,
there will be no let-up until tho re
ceipt of 'the mid-semester reports by
the registrar makes it possible for the
fraternities to pledge their men.
Some of our readers subscribe 'for
.out-of-town friends. What do you
think about it?

ONLY FEW ALTERATIONS MADE.
Forward Paaa Rule Changed for Thla
Changes in tho football rules aro
not as many as In previous years,
but they aro important. A change
in tho forward pass, rulo which will
likely have a decided bearing on tho
gamo has been made. When a for
ward pass Ib legally touched only the
man of tho passer's side who first
touched It shall be entitled to re
cover the ball until It is touched by
If a forward pasB Is thus legally
touched, fumbled and touched by an
other player of the" passer's side be
fore the ball 1b. touched by an oppon
ent tho ball shall go to the opponents
on the sldo where It was Illegally
Tim rule will make It more danger
ous for ihe aldo In possession of tho
ball to try a forward pass. If a man
misses the ball It practically means
that the other aide will get the pig
skin. The forward pass will, there
fore, probably not bo uBed bo ex
tensively this season.
While tho ball 1b In the air for a
forward paaB, players on the defensive
side may not use their arms or hands
on opponents except to push them
out of the way In order to got the
ball themselves. Players of the Bide
making the pass who are ineligible to
recelvo the pass may ubo their hands
and arms as In the case of players
going down tho field under a run.
Neither Bide may, however, "hold"
or "tackle" an opponent who has not
tho ball. If tho ball 1b illegally
touched outBldo of these provisions
the penalty provldeB that the ball
will go to the opponents on tho spot
where the pass was made.
Time will be taken out during tho
enforcement of penalty for incom
pleted pass. If a ball on a forward
pass or kick strikes tho uprights or
the croBB bar of the goal posts the
ball shall be considered aB having
crossed the goal lino.
In caBe-the ball. accidentally atrlkes
an official the play Bhall bo started
over again. A change which appears
to be somewhat uncalled for is the
lengthening of tho Intermission be
tween halves from ten minutes to fif
teen, minutes. The referee must
notify the teams three minutes before
Five minutes after this notification
If either team has failed to appear
the ball shall be put In play as first
down by tho offended side on the of
fending side's thirty-yard lino.
In order to render tho rules and
penalties more consistent the rules
which govern the conduct of playera
and persons not in the game who
sometimes cause fowls are made to
read: "Lobb of fifteen yards, point
to be gained and number of downs
to remain unchanged." Penalties for
fowls may be refused by the offended
side except penalties under the for
This, however, in cases wliere the
penalty includes disqualification, dooB
not save the player from being put
put of the game. If a player bats
the ball forward his side Iobcb tho pig
skin. This corned under tho jurisdic
tion of the umpire and ileld-Judge.
The field Judge also is the timekeeper
in place of the head lineBman. The
score of a forfeited game shall be
1 to 0. This distinguished It from
all other possible scores.

the commoners son aald yesterday

Not 8eeklng Office.
Young Bryan is not seeking tho
claBs honor and the present move
ment is being run without his au
thorization. LaBt year a few of his
personal friends sought to get him
to make tho raco for the class presi
dency but he refused to conBlder the
matter. He is of a retiring disposi
tion and the publicity so dearly loved
by his father has no glamor for him.
Ho haB refused to do any work in tho
interests of his own campaign this
year and Is letting the office seek him.
HIb frlendB claim ho has many of tho
qualifications of hla father for holding
office and declare that he will make
the class of 1911 an excellent execu
tive In event of his election.
Politics In the othera classes are not
stirred up much as yet but activity
will begin to manifest Itself within a
few days. So far the only talk heard
has been regarding the senior presi
dency. Helen Gray, Delta Delta Del
ta, has been montloned for the office.
She has many supporters and It Is
claimed that she will make a strong
race. She la said to be willing to make
a try for the office.
