SCM BOT INITIATES
TAKES IN NEW MEM1ER8 AND
A UNIQUE ORGANIZATION
No Other Western University Has
Been Able to Support a 81m'
liar Organization Though
Many Have Tried.
With tho Initiation and advance
mont Thursday ovening of nino mem
bers tho Som. Dot. of tho university
took in its twenty-third class of uni
versity students connected with . tho
botanical department This organiza
tion, which hnB flourished nt Nebras
ka for nearly n quarter of a century,
is the only one of its kind in tho
country. No other university hns a
society which combines tho educa
tional character with tho grotesque
noss and tho good-fellowship hucIi as
Is had In Nebraska's Seni. Dot.
Tho membors' enrolled or advanced
Thursday aro as follows: In the do
greo ordlnnrri J. W. Roberts, Miss
Pool, C. R. Tlllotson. In tho degree
enndidati O. N. Lamb, P. W. Huff
man, U. B. Stone and Miss Ingram.
In the degree novitli Miss Wndoll,
C. E. Tomplo. Somo of these have
been members of the organization
prior to Thursday, but at that time
thoy were elovnted to degrees higher
than they hnd heretofore held.
All Had Pie.
te.Tho initiation ceremonies wore con
ducted by Lord Warden Pool. Tho
featuro of tho nffair was tho pie-eat-lug
contest, won by G. N. Lamb. This
institution Js ono peculiar to Som. Dot.
and dates from tho organization of
The Som. Dot. Ib in all Us forms a
secret organization, but Ms whole pur
pose Is work. It was founded nventy
threo yoarB ago by seven Nubmskii
men, overy one of whom is now iv
ognized as a leading botanist in the
Institution, whore he Is at work. At
that mooting Roscoo Pound, who haB
mince become one of tho most dis
tinguished graduates of the univer
sity, was tho youngest man present,
it wob ho who was delegated by tho
f AS II I ON ABLE
otliorB present to go down town and
purchaso pies for the crowd. Begin
ning with this Incident the famous
"pie" of Sem. Bot. had Its start. At
overy initiation Blnce that time, plo
has hoon tho only refreshment served.
It Is ono, of tho things which gives
grotesquensss to this organization,
marking it apart from all others.
Let the Ladles In.
In 1900 tho society was thrown open
to tho girls onrolled in tho hotnnnical
courses, previous to which tlmo thoy
had not heon admitted. Tho socloty
meets every two weeks for tho dis
cussion of botnnnjcal subjects. It
has no constitution save nn unwrltte i
one, but tho laws "of its tradition have
proven sufficient government for its
Tho largest work undertaken by Iho
bot. som. was tho publication of the'
flora of Nebraska, in eight volumes.
TIiIb task is not yet entirely complete.
It is a work of great value to students
and to tho farmers, of the state. In
addition to this, tho society ha pub
lished a considerable number of other
works, including numerous paninhlatR
In 1904 Dr. F. E, Clements, w Ne
braska graduate and a loyal member
nof ttho hot, som., endeavored to start
a similar organization nt Minnesota,,
at which school he is head of the
botanical department., Tho 'attempt
proved unsuccessful," however, al
though Dr, Clomonts has not yet Kivon
up hopo of securing a start later.
Tho society seems to exist at Ne
braska from somo peculiar condlllon
which does not appear In other Insti
tutions. It ,lB;pnoof the fewMrndi-'

the Kansas team will cop the pennant
this year. .Tho Jayhawkers have lost
but ono game In the southern divi
sion, winning the championship easily.
Nebraska had n hard time copping
tho rag in the northern section and
therofore Kansas looks strong. Kan
sas defeated the Cornhuskers by good
scores in exhibition games and this,
too, makes the .Tnyhawkors rule fa
vorites for the championship series.
Coach Allen wat more worried about
the games with Washington and Mis
souri thnn with Nebraska. He bo
llevos tho team will win easier than
In tho fight for the championship of
the southern division.
