,iAftegl8trar Harrison, acting in his ca
nity as chairman of the revision
committee of tho Inter-fraternity coun
cil,,, has Just Issued to tho eleven fra
ternities of tho University a letter call
ing tor suggestions as to rushing rples
and briefly stating what tho council
nas -accomplished since 'its organiza
tion three years ago:
Tho call for suggestions as to now
rulQB comes about -as a result' of tho
action taken by tho council some tlmo
ago looking towards tho general re
drafting and' revision of tho rules gov
orning the plodging and initiation of
now men Into tho Nebraska Greek let
ter socloties. A committee waB then
appointed to take up the rules matter
and to draft entirely new regulations
for tho conduct of the rushing next
fall and for subsequent years. The
general .idea of the council was that
sovoral rather radical chants could
be made with excellent advantage and
tho pommitteo was instructed to con
sult with oach of the fraternities In an
ondoavor to got a system as nearly
suited to the desires of all as possible.
HaB Improved Standard.
Along with tho request for sugges
tions, Registrar Harrison has reviewed
the work'of tho council in a short let
tor. He states that tho personnel of
tho men taken into tho Nebraska fra
ternities has been markedly, improved
under the influence of the council. At
the time tho "council" wasTofmod there
was considerable antl-fraterhlty sentl-
mont and tho fraternities were said, to
bo in danger of radical restrictive
moasuros if they did not mend' their
ways. Tho socloties have so improved
in character in the past three years
that there are now comparatively few
familiar with their workings who do
not realize the fact that conditions
cannot belaid to be injurious to tho
Nebraska student body, The charac
ter of the initiates, under the regula
tions of the inter-fraternity council,
has been considerably bettered.
In tho matter of scholarship the im
provement is noticeably directly ln'the
standing of the fraternity men .then
and now. Instead of a delinquency list
amounting to 40 or 50 per cent of "their
act! vo enrollment, the Nobraska fra
ternities how, hayo only about' 13 per
cent of, their members on thodeiin-
quoncy roll, this percentage ranking

Historical Society Requests Appropri
ation, and Tells Why.
In a brief document laid before the
members of tho state legislature yes
terday the Nebraska State Historical
Society relates the reasons why It
needs a largo appropriation from that
body. Tho argument urges the pass
age of H. R. No. 481, and deals largeiy
with the problem of moving the 'so
ciety's material from tho present
quarters in tho basement of the LI
brary. Two years ago the legislature ap
propriated $25,000 for the basement
story of a historical building on con
dltlon that tho city of Lincoln donate
a alto. In 1908 tho city of Lincoln
purchased the half block at Sixteenth
and H for $37000 and deeded it to
tho State Historical society.
It is the Intention ofttio Historical
Society to build a first-class fire-proof
building, Iri which to preserve collec-i
tlons "which cannot no replaced. Pro
gress will bo made on such a bulldlnsr
as fast as the legislature things ad
vlsable. In no event will a che&n or
destructible structure be erected.
Contract is now let for the excava-
tlon and brick work of the basement
It will require about $150,000 to con-
struct the wing now under way. When
finished It will take care of the-Historical
Society library and'collectlons,
Including the legislative reference de
partment, and will accommodate some
of the oyer-now from the crowded
state house. There will still remain
two-thirds of tho half block donated
by tho city of Lincoln for such, future
use. as the state shall desire. ,
