A pK-asing quartet bearing the name
"Trans Mlnnlie Four" are the head
lines at the Majestic Their singing
is fine but their efforts to be funny
are dismal failures.
Outshining the quarti t Tor real en
tertainment are Charles Wayne and
Company In a novelty act entitled
"The .Morning After." it Is something
now to "Lincoln audiences" and deserves
much more applause than it received
Other numbers on the bill are: The
Harrison Brothers comedy entertain
ers; Muriel Wlndom. a young prima
dona who pleases; the Petite Mailing
Twins, dancing and acrobatic girls;
Yorke and Crawford, clean mlnistrel
comedians; Dorsch and Russell. "The
"The Blue and Grey, a war melo
drama, is the Lyric bill for this week.
The popular play. "The Time, the
Place and tht Girl." will be seen for
the second time within two years at
the Oliver lor this evening only
TO ABOLISH THE FRATERNITIES.
Kansas Legislator Will Soon Introduce
Roprusunuitlve-elect Ravonscrnft, of
Clark county, hns prepared a bill
which he will introduce at the coming
session of the legislature which has
for its object the abolition of fratern
ities at all the state schools.
The need of such a measure for
the statutes of Kansas, says the
author of the bill, is that tho college
fraternlltes are undemocratic, un
American, and a breeding place of
extravagance -and evil habits.
The K. V. Kansan remarks that the
author of tho blU probably has a son
In one of the schools who Is a member
of a frat, and whose bills he Is obliged
All students who have sung in tho
Messiah In provious years are urged
to assist In tho coming rendition of
tho work which will take placo on
ThurHday, Docemhor 17. Rehearsals
aro hold in the Temple Music hall
(second floor) on Tuesday, Wednes
day and Thursday at 6 p. m.
Considerable Interest hns been
aroused about school over the Impend
ing election of the captain of the 1909
Every day the question is heard on
the enmpus, "When are they going to
elect the captain?" or "Hns the team
taken any action on the election of
next year's captain yet?"
There arc several reasons wh there
has boen no action taken on this mat
ter yet. In tho first place the captain
of the football team will be chosen at
a meeting of all the men who have
won their "N's" this season, and the
letters hnvc not yet been awarded. The
athletic board will meet one week
from today and at that time the are
expected to award the letters so that
the election of next year's captain may
be looked for soon after that time
Delay Last Season.
Last year the election of Captain
Harvey did not take place until long
after the holidays but it is hoped that
tnis delay will not be necessarj this
Acocrding to the rules adopted by
the athletic board a player Is not elig
ible to receive a letter until he shall
have played one lull half In one or
more of the live so-called "N" games
or the football schedule. The "N"
games of this year's schedule were as
follows: Minnesota, Iowa, Ames, Kan
sas and Carlisle. This ear for the
first time the athletic board will be
called upon to interpret explicltelj a
question which has nevqr before con
fronted them on the matter of awai cl
ing letters. The question is this: Shall
v man who has played a part of each
half in one of the "N" games, the
aggregate time of his participation in
the game being greater than the length
of either half, be considered as en
titled to a letter? On a basis of time
the question admits of easy solution,
since the mnn over whom the question
arises played abouty thirty-seven min
utes during the Iown game, while the
Hrst of the two halves was only thlrty
fle minutes and the other was but
thirty minutes In length.
Must Pay Board.
Still another requirement with which
the football men must comply before
they can hope to be awarded a letter
is that they pay up In full the amount
they owo for bfiard at the training
table. There have been one or two
cases In the history of the Cornhusker
training table where men were denied
their "N's" on this ground, but It Is
not anticipated that anyone will lose
out on that account this season.
At the table tho men are expected
to pay the same amount for board that
they payed before coming to tho table
and the balance, if there is a deficit,
will be mot by the athletic board. How
ever, It Is provided In tho constitution
of the Missouri Valley Athletic associ
ation that the total amount expended
by any school for a training table shall
not exceed four hundred dollars, which
provision makes it necessnry for the
board to chargo a reasonable amount
for meals at the table and to Insist
upon its being payed.
At the next moelng of thetboard an
appropriation will doubtless be made
for the purchaso of sweaters for the
varsity squad and the scrubs. It is
hinted that the regulars may be given
two sweaters this year, a custom
which Ib observed at many other
CONVOCATION FOR CHANCELLOR.
