Annual Affair To Be Held at the City
The annual Pan-Hellenic dance,
given by the university fraternity men
will bo held tonight at the auditorium.
It is expected that upwards of 300
university fraternity men and slrls
will attend the hop, It being by far
the largest function of the yeai.
Contrary to the iiBiidl custom the
Pnn-Hellehic will not be held this
year on the evening of "Compet." The
date for tho annual competitive drill
between first battalion companies was
first fixed for today and tho Pan-Hellenic
was dated accordingly. Now thq
date of compet has been shifted to
May 27, but it was too late to change
the dance date, which remained as
May 21.
M. M. Welton is chairman of the
committee in charge of tonight's af
fair, and E. C. Johnston is master of
Senior Play Promise's to be the" Big
Success, of the Year.
Tickets for the senior play were on
sale yesterday and an enormous sale
was recorded up to Jast evening. A
table was maintained- In the Library
and at the last reports, all of the
downstairs seats and part of the bal
cony were sold out. This is an unpre
cedented sale and means that the play
this year will be a success financially.
As far as tho play is concerned
everything, is working out splendidly.
Some hard work is being" dOh'o by the
cast and the play is rounding out into
good form, The cast are all working
up their parts and It looks as though
the play would be something .better
than haTs appeared, ut Nebraska for a
long' time. The title of the piece Is
"The Royal Family," -and It is one of
Charlesi Frohman's" productions, ithe
right to, play it being secured from him
bythe senior class. The play will1 be
given in the Oliver theater, June 10,
a morning matinee and an evening
performance being given.

Nebraska coach has his men sized up
to win the games by a margin approxi
mating nine points.
The Kansas toam with a small party
of Btudenta will reach Lincoln this

rest before tho contest. Reports from
Lawrence convoys news to tho offect
that tho southern athletes aro In oven
bettor physical condition than they
wero when they defeated Missouri In
last Saturday's meet. Tho students at
Lawrence, so the report runs, aro con
fident their team will win the con
test from tho Cornhuskers by a very
small margin.
A rally of the Nebraska students
will be held in Memorial hall thte af
ternoon at 5 o'clock. Several good

Kansas StrongerTCtiyy.
With Perry out of form, Nebraska
stands 'to lose the broad jump. Kansas,
in Martlndell, this season, has a star
broad jumper, Already this spring ho
has broken tho Kansas unlvorslty rec
ord by doing 21 feet, 8 inches. Perry
last year established a new Nebraska
mak by going 22 feet, 2 3-4 Inches.
This spring the Comhusker has been
Bick, however, and will hardly be In
good enough form to boat Martlndell,
Present indications are that Nebras?
ka will win first in both the high
Jump and tho polo vault.
rTho fight for first honors In the
high jump will be closb with Hamel
and Hummoll doing the beBt work for
Nebraska and with Smith leading for
Kansas.- -Just now Smith of tho Jay
hawkers has thobe'stof the .dope, for
he has done 5 feet 6 inches this spring,
which Is a few Inches higher than
plther, Hamel or Humraell has gone.
i r t , t ,-
ingBldo with tho bar Haling at 6 feot
6 InchoB. In prnctico and in tho ihi
door meets tho past wintor, Hamol
wont 5 feot 8 Inches. In a closo con
tost with tho Jayhawkers ho should
go this high again.
Fight m Weights.
In tho weights Nebraska Is going to
havo no such an easy tlmo winning as
somo of tho dopestors hnvo be'on pro.
dieting. S. ColllnB, tho lending Corn
hUBker in nil three wolght oVenta, is
llkoly to moot defeat in tho dlBctis
throw In competition with Jayhawkor
Winter. The beBt tho Nobrasknn hnn
dono thla yoar was a throw of 109
foot, 11 1-2 Inches, mado at Morning
side. Wintor on tho other hand, broke
tho Kansas record by tossing tho plato
114 feet, 9 Inches In tho Manhattan
games. Collins last soason sot a now
mark of 115 foet 6 Inches In the Kan
sas meet. Should ho attain tho samo
form ho had thon ho ought to win from
Wintor hero, but It is doubtful whoth
or he will bo In Bhapo to hurl tho dis
cus more than 110 feet.
Tho hammor throw will fall to Col
lins. ,Ho is probably tho best man in
the valloy with this wolght and al-
ready this spring has smashed tho
CornhuBker record with a throw of
1G1 feet 7 inches. In tho Mornlngsido
moot he made a mark of but 125 feot,
8 inches, this being tho samo distance
that Myers of Kansas put the weight
In the meet'agalnst tho Kansas AggloB.
At Mornlngsido Collins wns not
pushed very 'hard, or olso ho would
havo sent the hammer several feot
Contest for 8hot Put.
Collins and Stevenson, of Kansas,
will bo the chief contenders in the
Bhot put which will probably bo one
ot tho best ovents of tho meet. The
Jayhawkers havo the best marlc for the
present season having pushed the'ahot
35 feot, 10 inches In the Aggie meet,
while tho best Collins has done was
35 feot 7 inches, the distance ho
made at lornlngsfde. Stevenson is
not capable of doing much better than
his best put of the Agglo games. Col.
Una, though, should bo able to go
nearly 40 feet closely crowded, a fact
which gives him an edge of the dope
for the cOriilng meeU Chaloupka, who
took' second place inline shot-put at
Mornlngsido forv Nebraska, will prob
ably be the third winner in the event
here. ' f '
