as. Has Been' Case
bo appointed by tlio Intor-frnt athlotlo
board to decide upon the events which
will make up the prograniH of all thrco
Lmeots. n
The' committee appointed by1 Dr.
Clapp was as follows: Jim Harvey,
chairman; J. Cv Knode, E. P. duldln
gor, P. E. Dlnsmorc and John Alex
ander, In viCw-of the fact-that 'this plan
linn progressed so far it is believed
that the Athlotic Board will dqcldo
"not' to have the lnter-cWs, indoor1 meet
on Charter Day but will faVor having
the proposed meet. In case this ac
tion 1b taken by the board the inter
class indoor meet will be held later,
prouaply, about tho module or .March.
On account of a' conflict'' In dates
with tho Kansas-Nebraska basket-bull
game on January 30, the intor-frnt
meet which was scheduled for that
night will b0" postponed. It 1b prob
able that it will be held on February
6, and that the non-frntoniity meet
wll come on the following Saturday,
Fobruary 13,' or vice verBa.
Further aotion taken by the intor
cluss committees on "Wednesday even
ing was to pass resolutions of con-
Instructors In Some Departments Av
erage Much Higher Than Others
Considering 'Number -of Stu
dents Taught and Time.
; Wednesday evening in tho Cdrn
lftiskd'r ofll'cV the lntdr-class alhlollc
committees, which wore recently ap
pointed by tho presidents of each of
too four classes, mot and 'transacted
some very important buairiess. They
Organized into an inter-class' rithlotic
board and made a rough dra,ft of a
(institution which, upon being revised
by a committee appointed for that pur
pose, viil be submitted1' to thef Uni
versity' A'thldtlc board for Ratification.
It Is believed that this constitution
Will bo ratified without any trouble
fad hat from now on tho Inter-class gratulation to Captain-elect Boltzer of
athletics at the university will bo I the football team, and to appoint a
placed upon a better and firmed foot-1 committee, consisting of Hummell and.

f hisi constitution has not yet been
compietea iDuyasaon as n w, iw yy
bo publlBhre'din'thoaDaily'' Nobraskan.
Among tb'mbst Important features
of t)ie now ordeKo'fHljitfgs will bo- the
admlSsIon qt freslihion to'tfl'lnter
class athletics, Thla hdfs berirt.R sub
ject . fjor dlscbBBlofi at theuniverslty
for years' and every, ypar It has hod
to lie decided ono way or' the other.
iipife frequently than not tho fresh
men havo been barred from football
and often from baBoball and basket
ball. This has beon'.cbrfsrjlered un
fair tJ tho freshmen, but the upper
classmen have usually barred' them
becauso the strongest class teams
usually came' from tho freshman
'Freshmen Lost Out.
Last spring, however, when tho
MlBBtrnr I- Valley- -Conference waB or
ganized, a. provision was made which
forbade froBhman football teams from
competing with' teams from other
schools and as a consequence, since
they, .were barred from Inter-class ath
letics at home, tho Nebraska fresh
men were "all in, down and out."
This was manifestly unfair to the
t'roshmen and as a result tho action
of this Inter-class board is welcomed
by all. p
Provision will be made in the con
stitution for five different forms of
intor-claBS athletics as follows: Foot
ball, 'baseball, basket-ball, , indoor
traok meet, and outdoor track meet.
Tho outdoor meet will be held on Ivy
Day, as it was lust year, but tho date
of the indpor meet is not yot definitely
known. Tho inter-class board passed
resolutions in which thqy- asked that
tlio lnter-class indoor moot be hqld
In tho place of tho Charter Day'meot;
these resolutions will bo submitted to
the University' Athlotic Board and th'e
Vesulf will' depend upon their action.
' The Other Plan.
Upon the action Mt the dthlotlc
board In this matter depends the out
come of tht other plan which Is being
the following form:
"fL.miolnNeb., Jan. C, lbok
"To'Mr. O. A. Beltzer, -Captain Univer
sity of Nebraska Football Team:
"We, the undersigned officers of the
lnter-class athletic board, in accord
ance wltl1 the .action of the board on
you t!te congratulations oi tho poaru,
upon your olpctlon as captain of tho
unlvorsity football .team, and do
further assure you of Its hearty sup
port and co-operation in your every
effort to produce a winning team."
(Signed) "S. P, Dobbs, President.
"S. A,.MaloOd, Sec'y."'
The formal petition for establishing
tho custom of holding an nnnunl in
door Inter-cInsB meet reads us follows:
"Lincoln, Neb., Jan. G, 1909.
"To. Dr. It. G. Clapp, Physical Direc
tor, University of NobiuHka.
"We, the undersigned officers of the
Inter-clasB athletic board, in accord
ance with action taken by the board
on tho above date, do hereby respect
fully submit for your consideration
and approval the holding of an an
nual 'indoor lnter-class athletic meet'
Such meet to be held under your su
pervision with the assistance of a
.committee from .the board.
"We further suggest that the uni
versity athletic board bo ashed, to pro
vide suitable prizes or trophies, and
that tho said meet be held on each
recurring Charter Day.

Political Science Department Pur
chases Series of Maps.
Recently the political science de
partment has t received an Important
uddltlon to Its equipment. A -series
nusned by both, tbfl fraternity and non-pf abouty thirty maps valued at $125
fraternity men. That plan Is to have
two Indoor meets, one open o'nly' to
frat meti arid tjio other only td non
fraternity men, during the irst two
weeks of February, the winners of tho
events In each meet to qualify for tho
finals which wlll'taico pIhco on Charter
Day, Fobruary . 15th. Tuesday morn
ing in prf (Clapp'8 office there was a
meeting "of prominent rion-fralovnlty
men for the purpose of deciding upon
whether or not they should hold suteh
a meet,, and they doplded in favor of
it. A committee was appointed by
Dr. Clapp, who presided at tho meet
ing, which Is to have1 charge of -'the
non-fraternity moot and which, will
confer with a similar' committee"" to
have been purchased by the depart
ment and will make It possible for
the work to be carried, on ifauch more
effectively in the future.
These nlaps are Intended for use In
classes, in anthropology, sociology and
political science. They are therefore
designed to show with clearness the
political rather tlmn the physical fea
tures. "While thoy- would l not ' empha
size such things a trado routes,, they
lay emphasis on political divisions
and capitals,. They are especially de
signed to show also tho political dl
visions of, .countries of especial inter-

Prof. Davis' Figures.
Proressor Davis, In muklng his re
port to the regents, summed the mut
ter up for the llrst semester of the
yenr 1907-1908 In the following tables.
Table No. 1 Is a compilation of tho
student-hours per week. The first
column gives tho number of hours
taught by the several departments
each week. The second column gives
the number of students registered In
tho same, and the third represents the
product of the numborB taught In the
vurlous cluBses nnd tho time spent.
This, lust column 1b the nggreguto
number of hours spent by tho depart
ments on n single student busls.
To take an example, one instructor
hus clusses meeting live hours, four
hours, nnd three hours a week, con
sisting respectively of thirty, twenty
and ten students. The number of student-hours
in each cIusb would- there
fore bo the product of tho students
by the hours, which would give for
these clusses 150, eighty nnd thirty
student-hours. The. sum, which. Is 200,
represents tho work of this Instructor.
In tuble No. 2 the salnrios of the
Instructors nrd similarly compiled.
Column 1 gives tho number of tenchi
erB, column 2 their nggreguto salaries,
and column 3 represents the division
of their aggregato wages uy tno num
ber of student-hours taught by "them,
as shown In the first table. Tho fig

Ington thut tho wur department would
not bo justified in having an officer
at tho university unless an -adequate
drill ground was maintained. Ho do:
clared that while a drill ground as
provided ut the state farm it was ;lm:
practical for tho students in Lincoln
to use it, and that therefore the ro;
