BIG PRIZE ALMOST ASSURED
FACULTY AND 8TUDENrS WJLL
BE ASKED TO CONTRIBUTE.
Effort to Have a Genuine Nebraska
Song Different From All Others
At Last Likely To Be Car-
To a Successful Finish.
University professors aro solidly be
hind the movoment for a new univer
sity song, if the Interviews obtained
from 11 representative number of the
faculty are wortli anything. Every
professor questioned admitted that ho
believed tho idea to be a good one and
In only one caso was there any fault
to be found with tho idea of tho pro
moters to glvo a big prlzo as a stimu
lus to the school's writers.
Some fifteen professors wore inter
viewed on the song matter. They rep
resented all sections of tho universi
ty and their opinion is regarded as
being a- fair indication of that of tho
university faculty in general. Those
professors agreed with, the charge
of the song promoters that the Uni
versity of Nebraska is in need of a
typical Cornhusker song. They saw
as well as the students the figure that
Nebraska cuts in having her official
song a mere parody on that of an
Above Prize Idea.
Not only did the professors approve
of the general proposition, but they
nlso gave their 'approbation to tho
proosal of the. song promoters that
a "big prize bo raised to encourage com
petitive offers of vorscB and music.
One faculty member did not agree
with the idea in all its details but
tho rest wyero enthusiastic in their
belief that the offer of a prlzo running
up into tho .hundred of dollars would
stimulate effort as no other one thing
The plan now is to raise a fund of
about $400 to bo given as prizes for
the composition and verses. Two
hundred and iifty dollars of this
amount would bo rasided among tho
amount would bo raised among tho
tr the plan as now roughly outlined
The remaining $lc0 tho promoters
hope to raise among the members
of tho faculty. Each of tho oloven
fraternities and the nine sororities in
school would bo asked" to donate a
snmH amount. Othor societies, in
cluding .Honorary and professional or
ganizations, would bo ilkowlso given
an opportunity to aid in providing" Ne
braska with, a new" song. ' Whatever
amount thon remained to bo raised
would be sought from . the' student
body in Individual contributions from
loyal students. ' k !;?,,,
Since. Jtho first , announcement? that
a prize of largo amount would prob
ably be given for a song composition,
thp Nbraskan office has been ma'do
the object or numerous Inquiries as to
the nature of tho offer and the regu
lations governing its award. No def
inite announcement has yet been
-made as to these particulars nor wfil,
one , bo; made untilt-ie funds for rfthe
prlzo1. are in aI0iti; ijs -unjfcub'tefy
howpver, that tho competition will bo
jppen to all university student?.
Whether or not tho, music and tho
;jsnot decjded,-, but tho, difficulty aris
Jng from suoh a,, course is consider
track," said one of tho t professors
interviewed. "Nebraska Is no longer
a baby Institution. It is a full-grown
university and It should tako on tho
outer appearance bofltting its char
acter. It would not need to take a
parody on a tradition of another uni
versity for what should bo ono of Its
moBt coveted personal possessions.
NO, song which is a parody upon that
of another school can really give to
Nebraska tho Independent charactor
which she should tako in her outer
emblems as well as In hor real bo
ing. "This being so, I am heartily glad
to see tho song movement started in
so energetic a manner. I bellevo that
the prize idea is tho right way In
which to got a song that will bo
worthy of tho school. It is fitting,
too, that the composition should be
the product of a Nebraska student.
That is eminently proper."

zine of the Komensky club Is out. It

A now ruling of the lntor-fratornlty

cause excepting, rain or wot grounds.
Tills rule means that every gamo this
year will have to bo played whether

long as tho weather permits. This
regulation was made in order to keep
any .member of the lertguo,,from. post
poning a gamo until some of its men

other senseloss. reason. .r ,-,,
A committee of three men will bo

of a 8chool.
In Hplto of tho fact that Nebraska
has no school of citizenship, offectlvo
work is being dono along that lino
and tho rosponno it has mot with in
tho various departments which would

dicative of a growing roallza'tlou of
tno necu of work along that lino.'
Tho incrooso in tho past fow'yoars
In tho deportments of Amorlcari oncl

and political sclonco and sociology
has been wry rapid. SlatlstlCB could
only bo obtained from ono dopartmont
at tho present tlmo, but tho growth
in it alono Is enouijh to illuatrato
this rapid growth. Tho dopartmont
of-political sclonco awl sociology was
founded threo years ago. In tho first
semester of Its existence 92 students
registered for tho work. Tho roglstra

moster as follows: 124, 192, 315, 392
and 508. Thus It will ho soon that.jnflk

Tho Idea of-a school of cWfznnniiin-
