Among the coeds of this 'university
there is a Freshman who is both a
baseball player of no moan ability and

according to report from her home
city, a national reputation. She comes

ture, Science and tho Arts. Hor name

During the season just closing on
the diamond MIbb Clement umpired
baseball games In three states and
played ball on a team In her home
town. In performing tho duties of
"umps" sho is said to have had no
trouble over tho decisions, which she
rendered in all casos, the reports from
Hudson declaro, she gave entire satis
faction to both the members of the
opposing teams and tho fans on the
bloachers and In tho grandstand.
Fame Spreads Fast.
Tho fame of hor fair judgments in
the first gameB sho umpired Boon
spread over South Dakota and tho
adjoining states and sho was sought
after to handle tho Indicator in many
of the cities in her own and In other
LaBt season Miss Clement was not
only an umpire, but also took part In
more than one game. At Hudson, hor
home town, she had boon engaged to
umpire a contest between Falrvlow
and Hudson, which was scheduled to
take placo one afternoon last summer.
During tne game the first baseman of
tho Hudson team was injured and
Miss Clement volunteered to take his
place, and sho was stationed on tho
initial sack, where Bho played a re
markable gamo for tho Hudson nine.
Makes Safe Hit.
On hor first time at tho bat sho se
cured a neat single and made first
with ease. While tho Falrvlew pitcher
was not on tuo watch she got a long
lead off first and ran to second with
out being caught Sho finally got to
third base, but did not reach home,
being left on that baB at the closo
of tho Inning wnen tho fourth batter
went out on a""fly.
Miss Cloment decided laBt month to
take a courso of physical training at
tho University of Nebraska, and came
hero last month. Sho Is registered for
fifteen hours work this semester. Nine
of these are physical education? three
philosophy, and three zoology.
A dispatch from Sioux Falls, S. D.,
to tho Sioux City Tribune says the
following about Miss Clement:
"That she also has ability as a
player was demonstrated by Miss
Amanda Clement, of Hudson, who has
gained national fame by her ability as
a baseball umpire, during a recent
game of baseball between the teams
of Hudson and Falrvlow. During the
gamo boo played first base for Hud
son. She secured during the game
one hit, stole second and third and
would have scored out for a fluke by
the batter who followed her. Miss
Clement has decided to take a courso
of physical training at the University
of Nebraska at Lincoln and perfect
herself Idl a number of studies also.
Miss Clement was physical directress
at Yankton college for two terms and
was exceedingly well liked, both by
the faculty and by the students. This
has been her most successful season
as a baseball umpire, her services
having been In constant demand
throughout . the season. During the
season she umpired ball games In
three different states and In each In
stance gavo comploto satisfaction,

JUNIOR MEETING THIS MORNING.
William Byerts Only Candidate for the
Contrary to tho usual custom of
electing tho senior class president be
fore tho junior head Is choson, the
third year class will moot in Memorial
hall' this morning at 11:30 for tho pur
pose of electing, their president for tho
ensuing semester. Owing to difficul
ties which will delay tho senior elec
tion for a few days President Ingles do
cided to havo tho junior meeting at
once and thereby eliminate any un
necessary cause for Inaction on the
part of the class in various affairs.
W. E. Byerts is the only candi
date for the highest honor tho clasB
has to bestow upon any of its mem
bers. Ho is a graduate of tho Lincoln
high school of the class of 1906, is
first lieutenant In Company "D" of tho
cadet battalion and Is said to bo well
qualified to servo as president, having
been identified with many class affairs
and having held a similar position
while in high school.
As was the case last year, when R.
I. Elliott was elected president of tho
clasB of 1909, .the campaign has been
rather quiot, aB no active opposition
has made itself manifest. From all
Indications it 1b thought that Mr. By
erts will receive the unanimous vote of
the class. In all previous elections,
excepting one, tho contests were keon
and necessitated the use of all avail
able political 'machinery.- Thls year,
however, things are quite different.
But to mako up for tho apparent In
action at present it is believed that
thero will be some spirited contests
for appointments. These appointments,
which includo the chairmanship of sev
eral Important functions and tho man
agership of the football and basketball
teams, aro not made by vote of tho
class, but by tho president.
In spite of the fact that little ex
citement has been created over tho
election it 1b believed that a large
number will attend It
LARGE INCREA8E IN CHEMISTRY
Number of 8tudents 100 More Than
Classes are exceedingly crowded in
the chemistry department this year.
There aro bo many studonts registered
for tho work, that in tho laboratory
thoy aro compelled to share their lock

fifty more students than the labora
taory was remodelled to accomodate
about four years' ago and if tho regis
tration continues to increase in the
future It is expected some tall stretch
lng will bo necessary to keep things
within the confines of Chemistry hall.
The total registration in the de
partment is about a 100 Increase over
that of last year. In 1907 It excelled
that of tho preceding year by about

MORE COMMODIOUS ROOM.
MEMBERS FEEL SERIOUS SLIGHT
Donated Large Sum for Temple and
Think They Should Be Given
Sufficient Space to Prac
Indignant at what thoy boliovo is a
serious slight on tho part of tho uni
versity authorities, tho mombers of
tho University uand.havo petitioned
Chancellor Androws for a more com
modious and a bettor room in which
to carry oh tneir practice. The mat
ter has been presented to tho chan
cellor by Capt Worklzor, under whoBO
direction tho band carrios on its work,
it being part of tho rogular battalion
organization. No answer has yet boon
The band mombers state tholr side
of the case simply. Thoy assert that
when the funds oi tho Temple were
being Bollcliod the band raised a large
sum and turned it, over for the con
struction of the now building, which
was to house 'the social and religious
interests of the university.
Wanted Good Rooms.
It was understood at tho time that
the band would be given suitable
room to do Its work, similar to the
places provided for the literary, re
ligious, and scientific societies. Now
that the Temple has been1 completed,
the ban has .been assigned a room
down in the south end of the base
ment. The room is under the stage
and is but Indifferently lighted and
ventilated. It Is far too small for
comfortable work and with forty mem
bers in this year's band the utmost
difficulty is experienced In even
crowded all Into the Bpace.
In speaking of the matter yesterday
Capt, Workizer declared that In his
opinion the band had been tne "yel
low dog" ever since be came to Ne
braska. He says that everybody ex
poets 'the band to behave properly
and to do whatever anbody else wants

Must Support Themselves.
During this weok the band mombors
must not only support thomsolvos In
Lincoln at considorablo oxponso, but
thoy aro also sot baok just that much
time in starting their Bummer's work.
This Is especially hard considering
the fact that many of tho band boys
aro supporting thomsolvos by their
own efforts whllo in school.

remembered that tho band must con

exhibition work, tho work is not such
a soft snap as somo think it, accord

Need the Band.
What tho band will do in caso tho
chancollor recuses their request for a
better room Is a matter ot conjec
ture. The work Is not obligatory and
some -of the men may conclude to
take drill instead, , .That this action
would bo a harm to tue university is
evident The band, is an Important
factor in tne camp life of the bat
talion and It figures extensively in
other ways. Whenever a football rally
or any other mass meeting is held the
band Is usually on hand to render music
to help things along to the best of Its
ability. At football contests it is a
force to bo considered by rooting
At present there are forty pieces in
the band. All members are univer

men and sophomores. Ray Harrison
is band leader for this year and in

will do excellent work. As' in the past
