Hall of Lincoln Hotel Annex the 8cene
of Beautiful Affair Last Evening.
'Why University Girls Refused
Bids to Formal' Party.
For tho first. time In the five yearB
of ttaoir existence tho University For
estry club will give a dance on Satur
day evening, March G. The 'affair will
take placo in the Temple music hall
and the club has restricted the attend
ance to students in the forestry de
partment The members of tho club decided to
hold a dance at a recent meeting and
the deitallB of tho affair have been
rapidly settled! A committee under the
chairmanship of H. S. Stophenson has
been making arrangements for the
hop, and it promises to be one of the
most entertaining social gatherings of
the year. The music hall of tho Tem
ple will be sumptuously decorated for
the occasion and the music will be
of the best. The affair will be infor
mal in every way and Its central pur
pose will be to give a jolly good time
to the foresters of the university.
With tho acceslon of the foresters
to the ranks of the dancers, the num-
ber of university organizations which
are not In tho social swim Is decreased
by one. Rumors of a hop by the Bot.
gem. have been current but these
could . not be traced to a definite
source. Officers of the society deny
that thero is anything of the sort con
templated. It Ib admitted, however,
that almost anything may bo expected
In view of the epidemic of dancitls
that has struck Nebraska In common
with' other western universities. At
Texas the German cjub recently gave
a" successful hop and at Idaho the fac
ulty club tripped tho light fantastic.
Junior Prom a Success. -
Yet,, despite, the frequency of
danceB, a good proportion of them
have been successful beyond expecta
tion. Tho junior prom last evening
was no exception to tho rule. This
formal affair ot the third-year men
proved to be successful in eyery way.
The pick of university dancers were
present to lend themselves to the oc
casion and it is Improbable that n
more stylish crowd of university stu
dents could have been gathered to
gether. The music by Eddie Walt's
orchestra left nothing to be desired.
Lunch was served In the ordinary of
the Lincoln.
The committee in charge spared no,
effort to make the scheme of decora
tions a beautiful one. The gallery of
the rotund was .tastefully hung with
ponan'tsVajid dottier forms of ornament
weraiso hiked. J. M. Alexander was
chairman, of the dance and Arbor
BartVmaBjer of ceremonies.
Qlrlf Wouldn't Go.
Whether or not some girls are
forced to turn down Invitations to
formal parties because of a lack of
gowns sufficiently stylish is a question
that might entertain the minds of
some undergraduates. Thdre Is at
least' one case on record of a Univer
sity of t Nebraska girl refusing to ac
cept ;a, formal bid, because of a lack
of, a: suitable dress, and there ,may
haye been others. Whether or not"
thqse refusals were sincere or mere'
excuses is a question that may haye
bothered the men . in the case. The
matter id being discussed at Wlscon-

"Democracy at Wisconsin Is further

for flowers and carriages at tho prom;
but thero is one placo where reform,
badly needed, cannot reach, and that
is In the matter of nrom gowns.
"It is stated on good authority that
as many as two co-eds have refused
prom bids because they could not
have now drosses for tho occasion.

The class series of basket-ball
games will be Inaugurated this after
nobn jn the university armory when
the senior nnd freshmen basket ball
fives will meet at 2:30 o'clock In what
promises to be a fiercely fought con-
test. Tho first year men are "doped"
as winnerB, being more carorimy
trained. Tho senior five Is composed
of some good basket shooters, but the
fact that the fourth year men have
had Jlttle practice this winter will
handicap them In the gamo this after
noon. The senior squad which will go
against tho young men of tho freBh
men aggregation is composed of Har
vey, Crltes, J. R. Smith, Waters,. Hills
and Guidlnger. Three of this number
Harvey, Crltes and Smith were
members of tho senior five last year
and played some rather fast ball.
Crltes and Smith play nt forward and
probably will do the goal tossing for
tho fourth year men today. Both of
thorn are .accurate basket shooters and
with good support from tho guards
ought to- be able to roll up quite a
respectable score for their side.
Harvey Is a hard fighting guard and
should show up well in tlio game this
dfternoon. Waters will hold down the
other guard position. He probably is
the fastest player the seniors have

good playing done by his team this af

Hills, a heavy center, .will do" tho
work at the pivotal position for the

bling in practice, and, in case ho is In

Within a 'couplo of days almost ovory,
student living outside of Lincoln has
left tho city with tho exception of the
fourth-year men, who must wait an-'
othor week for their diplomas.
Week of Events.
This week of commencement ovonts
contains tho annual concert of the
school of music, tho baccalaureate
sermon, tho annual; Phi., Beta .Kappa
oration, -the class day exercises, the 1
observance'' 6i 'Alumni Day, 'and then
'the final presentation of diplomas. The,
weok 1b given over entirely ' to those
exorcises, the seniors as1 well as the
undor-classmen having finished their
examinations during tho preceding
week. But few of tho men outside "the
class will remain solely for tho enter
tainment. Consequently the "seniors
receive their diplomas with due pomp
in the presence of the faculty and In
terested towns-pooplo with perhaps a
few close friends. TJut a great many
of their friends made during their uni
versity course .sea their commence
ment only through the medium of the
newspapers of the state. '
This condition, has been recognized
asta necessary evil until the Innocents
this year decided to attompt some'
means of remedy; They propose that'
the senate recommend tho chango4 to
the regents to be acted upon February
15-. In their petition they propose
that tho senior examination' either be
held the week' prior to other examlna-
Uons or that tho seniors be graded by
some other system for their last half-:
semester In college. The details are
left to tho discretion of the. senate.
