rOR ONE MORE WEEK
ART EXHIBITION WILL REMAIN
OPEN TILL JANUARY 23.
fINE EXHIBITION IS OFFERED
Nebraska 8tudents Given Chance to
See Unusually Excellent Display
of Pictures at Annual Exhibi
tion In Library.
Urged by the fact that there aro
yet many university students and citi
zens of Lincoln who have not taken
advantage of the oxhlbitlon of paint
ings now bolng mado in tho fine arts
hall o! the Library building, tho Ne
braska Art association has decided to
continue tho display for one more
week. Tho gallery will therefore bo
open all of noxt week. In connection
with tho extension of time, a member
of the association yesterday called at
tention to tho fact that all expenses
have now been met and all further
rocolptfl will bo used directly for tho
purchase of another art work for tho
"We havo been somewhat disap
pointed," said this gentleman, a pro
feasor in tho university, "over tho
showing mado th Bfar by tho stu
dents. The attendance has boon only
about two-thirdB tho UBual figure. Just
what is the cause for this falling off
I do not attompt to say. I fool, how
over, that tho students should bo lm
pessed with the fact that this exhi
bition, although not" conducted by a
uniyerBity organization, is yet so
closery allied with the university that
it deserves their heartiest support.
"The aim of tho Nebraska Art asso
ciation is to educate its members and
citizens of the state generally to a
better appreciation of art. To thlB
end it is endeavoring to establish hero
in Lincoln an art gallory of high
grade. This gallory Is situated In fine
Arts hall of the Library right here
on the campus-and Is thus a part
of the university to just as much an
extent as if It were tho property of
the university ltsolf."
Will Buy Pictures.
For several years past the art asso
ciation has brought to Lincoln and
exhibited a fine collection of pictures.
A comparatively normal chargo has
been made for admission to these dis
plays and tho money so obtained has
been devoted to the purchase of pic
tures for permanent places in tho art
gallery. Last year tho association was
successful in purchasing a fine piece
of work valued at soveral thousand
dollars. This year it hopes to be able
to make somo addition in either tho
form of a picture or of a cast or sculp
Tho expense of bringing tho pic
tures to Lincoln and of exhibiting
them have been met by tho early part
of the exhibit and every admission
now paty In is utilized directly toward
tho purchase of an art work which
will be of pormanent value to tho uni
versity, i This "alono should bo an In
ducement to university students to
patronize, the exhibit aside Jrpm the
personal advantage gained.
The personal value of viewing the
pictures is the most, important to the
university student It 1b seldom that
one who has not tho privilege of
travel to tho larger cltteB is able to
gain entrance to so yarled an exhibit
and to .one of 'bo high a standard. A
NebraBkan In speaking of the advant
ages to 'the student, recently summed
it up as follows;
"In the exhibition of the Nebraska
Art association, .there are, pictures by
all the 'foremost American painters
and by many foreign ones. Therp
are pictures portraying, all sides, of
life. These paintings cannot put be
of great- value to the university stu-
dont. By him especially they Bhould
bo studied not merely looked at. Tho
student must not think that ono visit
to tho gallory is sufficient. He should
go many timoB ovon though for only
a fow minutes each time. He should
study each picture, analyzing tho char
actors or scene and endeavoring to
understand whatthe artist has sought
to express. If this is done tho student
cannot but recolvo some culturo from
oach such study. This will bo tho
foundation of a still further apprecia
tion of art in later years. If not ac
quired at this porlod of tho student's
life, it is doubtful whether tho deslro
for artistic understanding ever will bo

JOSEPHINE HU8E A CANDIDATE.
Is First One to Get Into Race
Junior Class Head.
Miss Josophlno Huso is out for the
presidency of tho junior class. Her
cundldacy was announced late yes
terday afternoon when she consented
to make tho race on tho solicitation
of many of her friends. Miss Hubo
Is tho flrBt and only candidate who has
begun a campaign for tho junior office.
It 1b rumored, however, that another
candidate will bo In the field soon,
Last night It was said that Arthur
Darth, engineering student, was con
sidering the advisability of trying, to
get tho office. Nothing, though, is cer
tain yot about hlB making tho race.
Tho announcement of Miss Huso's
candidacy caused considerable specu
lation on the campus yesterday after
noon as to the chances of a co-ed's
bolng elected to tho highest office In
tho third' year class. Tho general
sentiment seemed to be that' under
tho present conditions in that class a
popular girl stood an equal chance
with a boy of getting the office.
Tho report of Chairman W. W. Mun
son, of tho junior informal committee,'
shows ,that the dance suffered a de
ficit of only about $10. The sale of
tickets at the door was" large and the
threatened largo deficit waB thereby
averted. Coming as it did, on -the
night before the sophomoro hop, and
with a dance at the governor's man
sion on the same evening, the com
mittee are to bo congratulated upon'
their' success with the dancp.
Moot courts In the law college will
open again Saturday after the Christ
mas recess. ,A large number of cases
are on docket, and the court will
probably bo busy most, of the day.
Tho jury panel has been drawn and
the members served with summons.
AMES. AGGIES TONIGHT
FIR8T GAME OF THE CHAMPION
HOT CONTEST IS ANTICIPATED
The Non-Fraternity Men Decide to
Hold Their Meet on February
Sixth The Committees
Agree on Events.

Umpire Plnneo, ex-Northwestern.
Referee Hewitt, ex-Nebraska.
Tonight in tho nrmory tho univer
sity basket-ball five will lino up
against Ames In tho first contest of
tho Borles for tho championship of tho
Missouri Vnlloy. The contest prom
ises to be one of high class and It, as
well as tomorrow night's gamo be
tween tho same two teams, is attract
lng considerable attention.
It will be remembered that tho
schools of tho Missouri Valley confer
onco havo been divided Into two sec
tions in order to cxpidlto tho arrang
ing of the basket-ball schedule. Tho
southern dlvlBion includoB tho teams
from Missouri, KanstiB and Washing
ton, while tho northern. .section, is
made up of Nebraska, Ames and
Drako. Tho way things aro now ar
ranged each team In each soction will
play four games with every other
team in that section, two of the games
to be on tho homo grounds and tho
other two to be on the grounds of tho
opponents. In this way every team
in the league will play eight games
in tho championship series durlrig tho
season. After these games havo been
played tho team In tho northern sec
tion having the highest percentage of.
games won will play a series of throo
games with tho team of tho southern
section having tho highest percent
age In that division, for tho champion
ship of tho Missouri Valley.
Early Games Don't Count.
On account of this arrangement it
will be seen that all of the other
games which havo been played here
tofore this season between teams of
tho Missouri Valley conference do not
count In determining the champion
ship title. Ames has met both Kan
sas and Missouri, and Nebraska has
met Kansas but none of thcBe games
count as a part of the championship
series. It is for thiB reason that very
little disappointment was felt, by the
local enthusiasts when the Cornhusk
era were defeated at Kansas last
It was not tho aim of Dr. Clapp to
have the team In first rate condition
for tho Kansas games aB such prepar
ation would havo been unnecessary.
However, the local squad has been
working hard every night this week
and thoy will be in excellent shapo
to meet tho Aggies, in tonight's con
test Judging .from comparative scores
it Is expected that the CornhuBkers
will be able to win both of theso con
tests, but a hard fight Is expected In
both of them.
Tho Jayhawkers were able to defeat
the Ames aggregation by a larger mar
gin than thoy did the Nebraska team,
and Wednesday, night tho Agglos werp
defeated by tho Wosleyan team by a
score of 31 to 21. However, in speak
ing of, this game, Dr. Olapp says that
he does not bonslder it too strong an
indication that the Cornhuskers will
have an easy time of.lt tonight He
says that the Wosleyan team is
stronger than it has( been for years
and' that they put up a great game
against the Ames team. ' ,
Yesterday morning the committee
appointed hy tho non-fraternity mon
to havo charge of their Indoor moot
mot In Dr. Clapp's office together with
a similar commlttoo appointed by tho
president of tho Intor-frat athletic
board, for tho purposo of dotorminlng
the list of ovents to bo obsorved In tho
Charter Day meet and to agroo on tho
scoring of the ovontB. Sovon ovonts
wore agrocd upon as follows: 25-yard
daBh, shot -put, polo vault, high kick,
running high jump, fenco vault, end
ropo climb. In tho Charter pay moot
an Intor-clasB rolay will bo substituted
for tho fratornlty-non-fraternity relay.
It was decided to scoro tho ovents,
5 points for first placo, 3 for second.,
and 1 for third. The A. A. U. rules
will govern tho moot.
Tho following Bchomo has beon de
cided upon for admission to tho throo
meets. ReBorved seats to any ono of
tho three (that is tho Intor-frat moot
tho non-frnt moot, or tho Chartor Day
moot) will bo twonty-flvo cents, but
for thlrty-flvo cents a ticket can bo
bought which will bo good for a re
Bervod seat to each of tho throo.
It was decided to hold tho non
fraternity moot on Saturday evening;
February 6th. Tho date for tho intor
frat moot hns already beon set for
Friday ovonlng, February 12th.
EMPHA8IZE8 ITS IMPORTANCE.
Dr. Fling Discusses Art Exhibit at
Ton minutes of tho chapol period
yesterday morning were given to Dr.
Fllug to speak on the importance of
thn art exhibit which la now being
h'eld In tho art gallery of tho Library.
Dr. Fling told briefly of tho import
unco of tho work which has been dono
In bringing this exhibit to Lincoln
nnnunlly, and spoke also of tho im
portance of- preserving tho reputation
of Lincoln as an art center.
While interest In tho art exhibit has
been growing both in tho city and In
tho schools of Lincoln, Interst in the
university has even seemed to bo
growing loss for tho last year or two.
This Is probably duo to the fact that
tho students havo not had tho matter
fully called to their attention but
nevertheless it fs n state of things that
should not bo ullowed to oxlst
Dr. Fling declared that up to tho
present timo the expenses of tho exhi
bition havo beon just about paid. From
now until the close of tho oxhlbitlon
all money that is taken in will bo ap
plied towards the purchase of a new
picture for tho local gallory. There
fore every dollar that is spent by
students for admissions in tho futuro
will .be a direct contribution towards
tho onlargoment of tho local gallery.
"A ROYAL FAMILY" 18 CH08EN.

far in advance' of that novel. The cast

ADOPTS NEW SYSTEM
REGULATIONS FOR REGISTRATION
TICKETS TO IE GIVEN OUT
Failure of Students to Prooure the
Tickets Will Be Likely. to Re
sult in Their Being Forced
to Pay Three Dollars.
Tho great trouble which has invari
ably been experienced by tho- regis
trar's office In enrolling tho total num
ber of Btudonts of tho univorsity in
tho short tlmo of ono wook now prom
iBes to bo obviated by tho how plan
which has boen workod out in tho
registrar's ofllco for tho registration
of students. Tho oBsential foaturo of
this plan is tho fact that it Books' to
avoid the confusion and rush of the
last few daya of registration by giv
ing all students, in advance, num
bered tickets which entitles thorn to
register at a cortain hour.
At tho beginning of this year an
attempt to rollovo tho congestion of
registration was mado when all sta
donts were required to register before
thoy went homo for the summer vaca
tion. Tho plan did not, however, se
cure tho desired results, bocause stu
dents woro permitted to register as
they came, and consequently sV iea,
lino ,wus -always we&tii&lobffitk&'
door, and many woro unable' to regis
ter witliin the specified time, ovea
though they were on hand for several'
dnys while registration was la pro
gress. Details of Plan.
Registration this semester will last
from 10:00 a. m., Monday, January 25,
to 6:00 p. m Saturday, January 30; '
All students, wtiothor regular or un
classed, will bo required to secure
numbered tickets in advance of the
regular registration days. These
tickets will bo impartially distributed
at tho registrar's office during the
week of January 18.23', and are so
given out as not to conflict with ex
aminations. It will be more than over neces
sary this year for students to consult
their advisers bofore going to the
registrar's office, as tho failure of the
student to be ready to 'complete- his
registration when his timo comes is
likely to result in his bolng forced to
pay tho lato registration fco of $3.00.
Only tho number of tickets will be -given
out for each half day that can
bo easily accommodated by the- force
in the registrar's office.
Engineers Cared For.
At tho beginning of tho present se
mester a great deal of confusion was.
caused among the engineers of the.
university by the attempt to have the
laboratories in use both during the
mornings and the afternoons, This a
necessitated a. doublo shift, so that
students who had. laboratories in .the
morning might take their class work
during tho afternoon and students
who had laboratories in tho afternoon
might take their class work in the4
morning. The plan did not work, en
tirely smooth, and to obviate .this all
engineers must this semester see the
engineers' program committee' for the
schedule of subjects and the assign
ment of recitation and laboratory
As an" additional aid to quick regis- ,
tratlon and a convenience to students t
who have examinations to pass, room
204 in Administration hall will be
fitted up as a waiting and study room. .
The registrar is confident that these
provisions will make registration
week this year the most successful of
any In recent' years and will at the ,
same time make it much the easiest,
for the office force.
