CREASE 18 ONLY TWO CENT8.
SIX DAYS INSTEAD OF FIVE
THIS MAKES UP FOR LESSENED
Target Ammunition Alone Will Cost
. Nearly Two Thousand Dollars,
This to Be Furnished by the
Government Free of Charge.
That tho increased proportional
camp fee lis fully( justified by the fact
that csuup will' this year last a day
longer than In the .piiBt Is tho state
ment made yesterday by Captain J.
G. Workizor, -commaiidaiit ' of univer
sity slu'dents. Captain Workizor lias
all the plartB of camp under his super
vision and It was he who fixed upon
tho $r camp fee per student. Sinco
the announcement of tlio amount of
the charge there has boon sonio crit
icism among students on the grounds,
that Che feo was greater than the cost
of transportation would justify.
Captain Workizpr has a table on tho
wall of hlB 'office which ho points out
us justification for his figures. The
camp Tee last year was $5.25. This
ear the railroad faro will be $1.10
less than the charge per man to Ne
braska City. This makes the foc'fbr
a five-day camp $4.15. But this year
the camp will cover six days Instead
of five and on tho basis of tho old
figures, the commandant figures that
thlB extra day will coat each man 83
cents, making the total for a six-day
camp $4.98. Captain Workizor con
fesses to adding two cents to tho pro
portional charge and says . that ho
stands ready to refund a stamp to
cadets calling for It.
Big Lot of Ammunition.
...... ?. ' . " '
The cadets will this year use an un
usually large amount of ammunition
in target practice and in tho sham
battle. Tho government Is particular
ly anxious that tho battalion bo well
trained Jn shooting and tho war de
partment will sot aside nearly $2,000
worth of ammunition for the Nebras
ka camp. Tlio exact amount 1b $1,872.
Captain Worklzer has returned from
Ashland, where he mado arrangements
for camp groundB and other con
veniences. The camp is to bo locatod
lp. the clty park. This ground Js an
ideal camp location, level and sandy
soil, capable of quickly drying. The
rifle range Is three and one-halt miles
from the camp and tho companies will
be transported to tho range one at a
time for targot practice. Arrange
ments h;two been mado for wagon
transportation to and from tho range.
The citizens of Ashland have ox
pressed a spirit of cordial good will
to the university men. Tho mer
chants of tho 'town are to furnish the
grounds and light for tho camp, They
aro all desirous of seeing tho cadots
liuvo a good time and seom glad to
volcome tho. battalion to the town.
, The culinary department of tho
camp will this yoar bo under tho bu
Dervlelon cf tho university Y. M. 0. A.
This organisation put in a bid for
the service, that was considerably be
low that of any other concern ami it
Is expected that the result will not
. Snjy be .better grub, but a savltfg to
the cadets. Any "surplus loft after ox-,
peuses'itro paid will bo refunded to
the students camping. K'. ,f

TO WEAR CAPS AND GOWNS,
Senior Girls to Attend Classes
in Dignified Garb. i
A moyement Ib bolng stArted by
the senior co-eds to promote tho wear
ing of caps and gowns on tho campus.
Tonight a meeting of tho senior girls
will bo held nt 5 o'clock in U 10G to
discuss the proposition and It is hoped
to push the matter through.
Tho movement Is backed by many 1
of the most prominent co-ods of tho
class of 1909. who are putting forth
every effort to secure tho co-operation
of all 5f the femlniuo portion of, tho
Tho wearing of tho cap and gown
will bo confined, of course, to - tho
girls who will wcar them on the cam
pus during the remainder of the
school year. It Is advocated that this
custom will, when once stdrtcd, lend
something of the dignity rightfully
due their position as seniors to that
class. It Is a custom practiced exton-,
sively at othor colleges and those
back of the project believe It would
add one more to tho list of customs
at Nebraska which go far to mako up
the beauty' of the traditions of' tho
older colleges. Auothor argument ad
vanced in its favor is that, although
securing caps and gowns, tho senior
girls aro at present only nblo to
wear them on two or three occasions
after which they must be laid aside.

Best in Country.
Professor Roth Is undoubtedly tlio
best educator in forestry In tho
Unitedt Stut.es at tlio present tlmo;- Ho;
Is the 'author of a largo number.", of
pub'llca,ti6riB and , his treatise" vbnUhof
structiiro of timber is!theuneBt,oyor
issued In tho English language. This!
book has boon translated into French.
His text yook known as tho "First
Book of Forestry" is used In ovory
forest school in America.
Tho professor was born
many and lib is thoroughly cbnvcp,
sant with tho IntenBlvo forest condi
tions provalent In that country. Pro-
vious to his appointment as dean
of tho F,orost School of tho University
of Michigan ho Was chief of the divi
sion of forestry under tho government;
land office. He had", tho professorship
in forestry at Cornell when that;
school wob the ranking fordst school
in tlio United States :
Much Valuable Work.
' . .;,;
In his capacity as chief of tho dlvl
slori of forestry he became thoroughlyi
conversant with ever part of 'tho!
United States. His work in this coun-j
try has been, of Inestimable value.vHel
devlsod-tho preserit system of con-
ducting tlio forest service land ne ;,was)
tho first man to effectually "prosocutei
