Students in the college of artB and
sciences may hereafter graduate with
125 credits, of which only 48 are re
quired studies. In the past tho ab
solute and elective requirements have
amounted to a minimum of 58 hours,
leaving 63 hours for free electives.
The action1 of the fnculty of tho col
lege of arts and sciences yesterday
afternoon givos the student the right
to drop two pt tho eight groups of' re
quired given electives instead of one.
This reduces the number of required
Tho action of the faculty conies as
a surprise to tho student body, but
the matter haB been under considera
tion by members of the teaching force
for Borne time. The old system of
seven-of-elght required electives was
in a number of cases onerous and tho
faculty members have been looking
about for some satisfactory method of
change for several months.
The Provisions.
Following are the provisions which
will In future govern tho graduation
of students from tho college of arts
and sciences, subject to tho approval
of the board of regents:
"In the college of arts and sciences
rhetoric 1 and 2 t hours and drill
(men) or physical training (women)
4 hour? are absolutely required.
"For tho degrees of Bachelor of
ArtB the student is required to take
six out of eight of tho following olght
groups of studies whfch must bo com
plete before tho end of tho third year.
The two groups omitted must not bo

"Division A.
1. The Mother Tongue 6 hours.
2.The Classics (Greek or Latin)
10 hours,
a. Modern Language (Fronch.or
Gorman) 10 hours.
Division B.
' 1. History and Sociology G hours.
2. Philosophy and Economics 6

I. Exact Science (Mathematics,
Astronomy) 10 hours,
! 2. Physical Sclenco (Chemistry or
Physics) C hours. .
.3. Biology (Botany, Zoology) 0
Fewer Requirements.
i The plan more briefly contemplates:
,l A. Absolute requirements 8 hours.
B. Required electives 40, 44 or 48
C. Freq electives 77, 73 or 69.
It Is believed by the arrangement of
the "groups Into divisions and tho pro
hibition as to dropping' two In the
same division that tho taking of a
snap 'course will bo avoided as well
as formerly under tho old rules. Tho
, new r'uloB will go inlo effect when

campus for the past few days.
An unusual number of students hnvo
this year, "been nBked by one 'or,., the

position's at tho polls in checking off
the voters. It Ib declared that ovon

Club In Charge.
As an Indication of tho part which
the university is coming to play in
the politics of the city It may bo stat
ed that tho republican club of the
unlvorslty has been placed in complete
charge of checking the voters of that
party. Mr. E. Cornelius, A. B.' 1907,
and who graduates from the law
schools this spring, as president of
the club has genernl chargo of this
part or his party's campaign.
The question or prohibition is tho.
one that has stirred tho university
most deeply and has brought out the
most decided expressions of opinion.
According to every Indication tho uni
versity voto will bo cast strongly In
favor of prohibition. It is also de
clared that aevoral uinvorslty pro
fessors are taking an active part In
tho work that Is being done at tho
polls today in tho Interest of prohi
bition. Thla activity on the part of
the students is the result of a grow
ing Interest which has been aroused
at Nobraska, in good government. Last,
year considerable interest was taken
In the city election,, at which time a
demonstration was made on tho part
of a large body of students in favor of
prohibition. A procession .composed
of 'representatives of various iactly
itles or tho. student body, the battalion,
and the: nthlotes, marched the length
or 0 street. ll
' More, Quiet Now."
This year the activity has been dis
played In a mora quiet manner, but
moro real interest In tho political sit
uation has boon aroused. Nearly
every yotqr" in tho university has reg
