Proposed Change.

The authorities seem to fall In read
ily with the plan, the approval of
many of tho professors having already
been secured. Tho chancellor will
probnbly call a meeting of tho univer
sity senate this week to pass upon
the proposed plan, nud at present It
looks as though tho change would be
The date fof the annual cadet en
nimnrapiit mnv be n train changed. A
committee Is now working up a plan
whereby camp may be held two days
earllor. than at present scheduled and
still not conflict with examinations.
The plan, when completed, will be
submitted to the university senate,
which will probably pass upon it some
time this week.
The difficulty with the present da'te
nrlseH from the fact that various
members of the battalion have promi
nent parts in the senior piny which
will necessitate theit attendance at re
hearsals. The committee now consid
ering the plan is composed of repre
sentatives from the military depart
ment and the senior play.
Leave Earlier.
Two plans are under 'consideration.
The one which seems to gain the most
favor, is that which will provide Tor
tho cadets going to Ashland two days
earlier than the date as at present
-announced. This will not necessarily
bring the examinations at any earlier
date, as the clasB schedules aro so
arranged as to enable tho majority of
the examinations to be held, as al
ready scheduled, and not conflict with
with the proposed date for tho en
campment. It is proposed to provide
that those who have to take exami
nations after the cadets leave will bo
permitted to do so, being excused
from camp during that time.
This change In tho date will, It la
believed, bo beneficial to all con
cerned. The date for the encampment,
if changed, will bo from Juno 2 to
June 7, instead of June 1 to Juno 9.
This will mean that the cadets will
leave here Wednesday and return on
the following Monday. The other plan
which also provides for tho encamp
ment from Wednesday to Monday Is,
to, hold all of tho examinations on the
two days previous to the battalion's
" departure.
8eniors Support It.
The senior class is supporting tho
change of da$o f,pr several reasons.
the flrBt place several officers and
momber8 of the battalion are occu
pying places In the cast of the senior
play which Is to'be given on Juno 10,
As all, of these characters are Im
portant to tho success of, the . play,
and, as It will be almost imperative
that ihey attend at least two. dress
rehearsals before theplay. isTglVen,
the change In date will v benefit the
play greatly In this reBpecL The ca
dets returning on Monday will also
enable thorn, if they so doslre, to see
thp1 morning matinee, before leaving
for home. It is believed that many of
them "will renrnln in Lincoln for this
mutlnoe and thus the. benefits of tho
changed date wlll be reaped by both
the cadets arid tho senior class. There

To Be Distributed
Among High 8chools.
Up to last evening less than 100
copies of this yonr's issue of the Corn
lnisker remained unsold. Tho action
of the board of regents, taken Satur
day evening ift securing lt"0 copies
for free distribution to all accredited
high schools of tho state, brought tho
remaining available number down to
less than one hundred. These cdpios
are Bocured for distribution among
the schools of tho state for the pur
pose of Interesting students In the" uni
versity. The present nrrangeinent of tho
books makes It especially" well fitted
Tor this purpose. It shows up each
department In n separate division and
gives a good, clean idea of the work
being done here along all lines.
Two hundred pages of the Annual
are now on the preBs and the re
mainder of tho book Is almost ready.
It is being printed nt tho rate .of thirty-two
pages a day. This year's book
will contain about double the number
of outs in last year's ('ornhusker,
and the individual "write ups" have
been worked up In much more inter
esting fashion.
Tables, at which orders for tho book
will bo taken, are established In the
lobbies of the Engineering hall and
the Library, and tho management Is
conlldent that all of the remaining
copies will bo sold by Friday night.
Only one thousnnd copies of tho book
will be printed this year, the forms
being tnken down ns soon aB these are
run off.

Professor Powers Thinks They
Important 8tudies.
Profetfor J. H. Powers yesterday
spoke briefly before his class In zool
ogy In defenso of the natural sciences,
which another university professor re
cently declared to bo comparatively
unimportant alongside the historical
and economical studies. Professor
Powors disclaimed any Intention of re
flecting discredit upon his colleagues
of tho other school, but he declared
that his branch of lenrnlng had an ar
gument in its favor.
Professor Powers dwelt briefly up
on the conditions In Germnny. There
he declared the leading educators wore
coming more and more to believe In
the natural sciences. He stated that
these branches were being emphasized
not only in the high schools and sec
ondary colleges, but In tho universi
ties as well.
Aside from this, he bolloved that a

Small Track Squad.
Having less than twonty men on Its
track squad, tho stnto university this
spring Is threatened with a doarth of
candidates that may prove fatal to the
chances of putting out a fast team;
and this, too, in a season when thoro

would give the Cornhuskor Institution
the strongest bunch of representatives
on tho cinder -path that It has had In
many years. Tho cause of the small
size of tho squad is more serious than
the absence of suitable candidates
from tho student body and It Is due
entirely to the lack of an nthlotic

Tho prnctlclonors' course was inaug
urated Inst year, At flint tlmo only

tho work wont through without a

and tho course Is enlarged to meet

Tho idea of such a course is takon
from tho University of VIonna In Aus

has annually hnd such a courso and It -Is
attondod by physicians from all over
