SPECIAL PRIVILEGES TO NONE.
Tho Daily Nobrnakan has been criti
cized roconlly by mombors of ono of
tho great political partlos for what
these men have boon pleased to term
Its partisan attitudo In publishing tho
news of the activities of tho republican
and democratic clubs of tho university.
TIioho men havo intimated that this
papor has intentionally left out news
about one of tho clubs and slighted Us
mombors by giving more spaco to tho
happenings or the other organization.
Such accusations aro absolutely with
Tho Nobraskan, as a university pub
lication has no favorites in the na
tional race betwoen Mr. Bryan and
Mr. Taft, and la treating tho nows con
cerning tho two clubs representing
thoso nion in this university without
bias or reference to porsonal prefer

a certain one- of tho candidates triumph
over his opponent and they would bo
pretty poor citizons if they did not
but they do not lot their political be
liefs color tho nows which is printed
in this publication.

they were asking too much, oven of a

get certain candidates to tho fore

A REMARKABLE FIND
DINOHYU8 DI8COVERED IN 8IOUX
COUNTY DURING 8UMMER.
ONE OF TWO KNOWN SPECIMENS
Charles H. Morrill Geological Expe
dition Makes Investigations at
Ranch of James Cook
Among numerous speclmentB se
cured by tho Morrill geological oxpedi
tlon in 1008 the most unique and valu
ablo was that of DinohyuB, the giant
hog of the Miocene. There is but one
other speclment of tho genius In ex
istence, and it is located in the Car
negie museum and is considered by
tho public their moBt interesting speci
men. Such a specimen nB the one at
Nebraska cannot bo bought for money.
Tho Morrill annual geological expe
dition consisting of Professor Bar
bour, Edwin Davis, Alvin Bumstead,
Leigh Kraka, and It. A. Van Orsdel
spent the season of 1908 in the famous
fossil Holds at Agate, Sioux county,
Nebraska, on tho ranch of Mr. James
Cook. There were associated five
distinct institutions, namely: Yalo,
Amherst, Columbia and the American
museum of natural history, Carneglo
museum, and tho University of Ne
braska. These aggregated a total of
more than twenty paloritologlsts, prob
ably tho largest number of field work
ors ever gathered together In ono spot.
Between forty and "fifty tons of ma
terial wore shipped from this ono lo
cation. Location of Specimen.
The giant hog was found In the
Morrill quarry on University Hill, op
poalto Carnegie Hill, on the south
bank of the Niobrara rlvor. Several
thousand tonB of rock were blasted
away by dynamite, In order that the
members of tho expedition might get
at tho bono layer which was located
some ten or twelve feet below the
surface. As soon as the coarqer rock
was blasted off the students began
digging with pick and chlel. One of
the students came unexpectedly upon
a bone two feet above tho bono level.
It Is counted very fortunate that the
biasing stopped where It did, other
wise an invaluable specimen would
have been damaged.
Description of Bones.

the monstrous shell of the giant hog
As the work continued the Bkull, low
er jaw, neck vertebrae; chest and rib
bones, back bones, plevls, fore limbs
and hind limbs were 'chiseled out in
turn. It was a veritable bone heap
about fourteen feet In length and five
feet In width. Practically every bone
is present, and in a state of the finest
preservation. The size of the animal
is about eleven o twelve feet In
length, with four or more feet In
height, with four quarters and a neck
so strong and massive that we can
scarcely Judge of Ub size. Tho first
vertebrae of the neck is fifteen Inches
through. Its skull 1b a little over
three feet In length. Its canine teeth
were almost tusks, being about eleven
inches in length and bout nine IncheB
In circumference. Its hind quarters
were quite unlike Its fore quarters,
being small and retreating rapidly so
that Its appearance was that of a
wild boar, though much vaster than
any domestic animal. Its legs were
long so that the animal was fleet
footed. It was capable of rooting like
the domestic "hog, 'and probably feJ
on the rich foliage around tho water
courses, although it was capable of
making long trips out on the plainB.
Th6 arrangement of the teeth sug
gest the' idea, that some at least of
his acta of browsing were performed
by closing his mouth on brushwood,
and then by a motion of his head
stripping the twigs of their bark and
leaves. The creature was plainly not
avorse to eating flesh, being much like
the domestic hog In this respect. ,
Require Glass Cage
Tho specimen when mounted In the
university museum will require a
glass caso about ten feet high, four
teen feet long and five foot wide

tributes the means for the mainten
ance of tho annual geological expedi
tion has, by this means, added nn
other Invaluable scientific specimen
to his long list of unique fossils now
In the University of Nebraska.

ELECTION OF JUNIORS
W. E. BYERT8 CH08EN PRESIDENT
OF CLA88 OF 1910.
BUT LITTLE INTEREST AROUSED
Most of the Officers Elected By Accla
mation President of Last. Se
mester Choice for 8er-geant-at-Arms.
President W. E. Byerts.
Vice-president Jess Clark.
Secretary Florence Ridell.
Treasurer W. A. Monsen. I
Sergeant-at-arm8 Harry Ingles.
The little interest which has been
evidenced In tho Junior class elections
was shown by the email crowd which
was present for the election of officers
yesterday. Only about fifty were pres
ent and only ono ballot was necessary
for the selection of a treasurer.
Presldena Harry Ingles called the
class to order and announced that tho
business of the meeting waB the elec
tion of officers. W. E. Byerts waB at
once nominated for the presidency by
Arbor Barth. A motion was then made
that tho nominations be closed-. Be
fore this motion could be voted upon,
another motion was made that the
vote be made unanimous for Mr. By
erts. This motion was out or order,
and the vote was taken upon tho or
iginal motion that the nominations be
closed. This was carried and the mat
ter was then dropped, It evidently be
ing considered that Mr. Byerts had
been elected. It is said that there will
be no contest of the election as there
seems to bo nobody else willing to an
nounce that he cares for the position.
Miss Riddell Elected.
Miss Ridell was then nominated for
secretary and was elected by acclama
tion. Mr. Maywood was nominated for
vice-president, but withdrew his name.
Jess Clark was then nominated and
W.A. Monsen and D. A. Harte were
both nominated for treasurer and a
ballot was taken to decided which one
should be tho class officer. Walter A.
Monsen was elected by a few votes.
Harry Ingles was nominated for ser-geant-at-arms
and was elected by ac
clamation. The matter of student memberB of
the publication board was discussed
and It was decided to elect the now
member at that meeting so that the
class might bo fully represented at any
meetings of the publication board to
be held in the near future. Arbor
Barth was nominated and It was then
moved that tho nominations -be closed
and tho unanimous vote of the class
bv cast for Mr. Barth. This motion was
carried and Mr. Barth thus became
tho representative of the class.
Mr. H. G. Byers, head of the chemis
try department of the University of
Washington, who has just returned
from a fifteen months' leave of ab
sence, Bpent In visiting German uni
versities and pursuing research work
in chemistry, has expressed himself as
thoroughly disappointed with the char
acter of work done in the higher Ger
man Institutions. In direct contrast,
he Is most agreeably surprised in the
comparative excellency of the work
In the American universities.
Dean A. R. Priest and other univer
sity authorities are surprised and grat
ified at the large registration in the
new journalism dopartment. Forty
students, have elected journalism as
their major and dozens of others are
enrolled for single courses. Unl of
Purdue reports a total enrollment of
1,659 on September 24.
