WAS QUITE A CRUSH
NEW SYSTEM OF REGISTRATION
DIDN'T ABOLI8H RU8H.
STUDENTS' HURRY THE CAUSE
University Men and Girls Crowded
Registrar's Office on First Day of
Week Despite Fact That Plen
ty of Time Remained.
The new syBtem of registration tie
vised by Registrar Harrison and in
cluding numbered tags, specially ic
served hours, and study rooms, was
tried out yesterday In the ofllco of
the registrar and In the adjacent hall
of the administration building. At tin
conclusion of the day's work It was
stated at the oflice that tho new sys
tem was operating successfully tti
every way, this despite the fact that
at times the crowded conditions were
vivid reminders of past registration
From the Opening of the oflice at 0
o'clock to the closo at 5 p. m. there
was practically one continuous pro
cession " of students registering for
numbers which will entitle them ro a
reserved time during next week when
they may arrange their schedules and
pay their fees. At sevoral timss dur
ing the afternoon the oflice was
Jammed and tho hall outside was
called Into service to accommodate
the overflow. At these times thro
were as many as one hundred stu
dents in line waiting for their tuin
at the desk and when such was the
case It required anywhere from thirty
minutes to an hour for one student
to get his number.
Students to Blame.
At thp registrar's oflice tho .espon
slbillty for the Jams was laid upon
the students themselves. It was stated
that there wore five days after yester
day in which to obtain the numbers
and that there was no excuse for so
many attempting to got tho printed
slips on the first day. There seemed
to be an Impression among tho stu
dents, however, that unless they wore
on hand early they might be forced
to take periods not convenient to them
during the regular registration week.
To some extont this idea had been
encouraged in order that students
might not put off their appearance at
the office until late In the week and
at that time bring about a Jam. There
seems to be no danger of such a con
dition In view of tho situation yos
Another thing which delayed mat
ters very considerably and which was
not the fault of the students was the
lack of examination schedules during
the morning and early afternoon. Only
one copy of tho sheet listing the exam
ination periods for tho different
classes was In tho registrar's office.
Without consulting this, tho students
had no idea when ho could present
himself next week for ilnal registra
tion and consequently the scarcity was
tho cause of a great amount of in
convenience and delay. In mid-afternoon
printed copIeB of tho schedule
were received and those wero placed
on Jthe ofllco countor In Buch a position
that anyone wishing a copy had to
break through tho lino ready to got
tags, this resulting in confusion nnd
in further delay for many students
who had not tho "nerve" to shove
themselves to the head of the line out
of their proper sequence. Others had
the nerve in plenty, however, and
there wero numerous ones who boast
ed of getting numbers ten minutes
after they entered tho bfllcb In which
some less enterprising students had
been patently waiting threo tlmeB as
ll- A Dyb'e 8ystem.
The slowjiesq yesterday was partly
duo also to tho fact that for a great
part of tho time but one man was giv
ing out tho tickets. Late In the after
noon additional service was applied
and the students went through tho
process of being tngged at a faster
rale. When the ilnal registration Is
made next Week there will be a double
line with two separate systems of reg
istration so that the operation will be
complete twice as fast as has boon tho
case in the past.
In at least one department of the
university the system of the registrar
will be extended to the clnss-reglstrn-tion.
In tliih tie par tin en t all students
have been requested to go to the ofllco
as soon aH they have been registered
and at once receive their assignments
to class sections and laboratory

NEBRASKA WINS I WO
AMES AGGIES DEFEATED IN THE
FIRST GAME8 OF SEASON.
NEBRASKA VS. DRAKE THIS WEK
Dr. Clapp Anticipates a Fiercer Strug
gle Against the Des Moines
School Than Was Neces
sary With Aggies.
The Nebraska basket-ball live more
than made good tho expectations held
out for them In tho two contests with
the Ames Aggies last Friday and Sat
urday evonlngs. Thoy won both
games .handily, the first by a score of
42 to 20 and tho second by 10 to 21,
and as a consequence they are now
well, on their way toward tho cham
pionship of -the northern section of
the Missouri Valloy.
Nebraska has eight games to pla In
the championship sories of the north
ern section nnd by winning these first
two she has got a good lead on tho
other two teams, Ames and Drake.
Drake comes to Lincoln for two games
next Friday and Saturday and. after
that the Comhuskers will play no
more gnmes which will count for tho
championship until February 8, when
they meet Ames at Ames on their
way back from their northern trip.
They piny two games at Amos at that
time, followed immediately by two
with Drake in Des Moines on Febru
ary 10 and 11, which games will wind
up the series In the northern division.
The team in this section having tho
highest percentage of games won will
then meet the best team of the south
ern section which now appears to bo
either Kansas or Washington for
the Missouri Valley championship.
Comhuskers Do Well.
In the Ames games last week the
Comhuskers cortainly played good
ball, much better than they havo ex
hibited at any other time this season.
Throughout both contests their guard
ing was very careful and sure nnd
their team work was developed to a
much higher degree than was that of
The Ames team lacked speed and
team work, and they were obviously in
poorer physical condition than tho
Comhuskers, who wero able to stand
tho hot pace of both games without
a let-up. These facts, together with
Inaccurate passing nnd poor dribbling,
probably account for the fact that tho
Ames aggregation wore not able to
make a better showing. Tho Aggies,
however, expect to make some rapid
progress in the course of the next two
weeks and they hope for revenge when
tho Nebraska team comes there noxt
In discussing tho prospects in tho
Drake games, Dr. Clapp sayB that he
anticipates no such easy task in de
feating the Des Moines bunch. Thoy
are reputed tp. have a much stronger
team than Ames, although no accurate
dopQ can bo obtained from tho Drake
team in tho way of comparative
scores. Drake college is situated in
Des Moines, a basket-ball town, whore
tho crack Y. M. C. A. toam gives an
impetus to the spprt. It is said that
two of the present Drake 'players are
former Des Moines Y. M. C. A. stars.
