In speaking of high school day the
rules read asvfollows.
"Wo urge that tho high school prin

original purpose of giving their pupils

Surely it Is not such nn inspiring or
unusual thing to see a student en
gaged in study. Tho old method gavo
a strong incentive to induce high
school studonts to come to Lincoln,
but now that this Is romoved It seems
hardly Ilkoly that thoso who are not
directly interested in tho university
will care to mako tho trip. Before,
wo had a chanco of interesting thoso
who wore not already Interested. Now
we can hope only to hold tho interost
of thoso who are considering coming
to the university.
In speaking of tho cadet encamp
mont, tho rules read as follows:
"The annual encampment shall bo
hold at Lincoln, at such time of the

sovon days and shall bo required to
attend nil regular clnsses until 4:00 p.
