DEATH OF MISS KERNS TUESDAY.
Former University Student and In
structor Succumbs to Tuberculosis.
On Tuesday, October 5th, occurred
the death of Miss Mira Kerns at her
home in Adams, Neb. This news will
doubtless, come as a great shock to
oven those who had known of hc-r ill
ness during the past few months.
Miss Kerns Is a graduate of the
University of Nebraska, and last fall
returned to f the university after a pe
riod of very1 successful teaching, to
take work leading to a master's de
gree. As a fellow In the German de
partment' she had charge of classes
whose m,emhers remember her work
gratefully and who were -reluctant to
have her leave when her falling health
demanded that she give up her work.
Although her indomitable spirit, and
unswerving, courage in ,the face, of the
dread disease, tuberculosis, seemed to
offer a hope of recovery, she was un
able to overcome the already deeply
rooted hold of the disease.
MIsb Kerns possessed a nature so
bright and cheerful, so full of helpful
hopefulness that she was an inspira
tion to,. the, discouraged, at all times.
She had1 '..a moBt excellent record as a
student and was ever ambitious to at
(tain the fruits coveted by the true

itor cannot fail to go away with a
much clearer idea of the kind of work
the state' college is 'doing in teaching

BIG EVENT OF THE ASSOCIATION
YEAR TO COME OFF.
GOOD TIME IS GUARANTEED TO ALL
Beginning at 8 p. m. the Association
Promises an Entertainment That
Will Leave Nothing
Tho annual Y. M. C. A. stng recep
tion will be given in the Armory Sat
urday evenlng'at 8 o'clock, and will bo
the big Bocial event of the associa
tion year. 'Preparations are under
way to make 'it tho best "stag" over
given by that organization.
There are stags and Btags. But
tho Y. M. C. A. stag given annually by
the association is perhaps the biggpst
stag hereabouts. At any rate It has
tho reputation of being such. Last
year it Was a big success, the students
present being drawn from every side
of university life.
The features of last year's recep
tion, the program of which was large
ly athletic, were boxing matches,
wrestling, horizontal bar work and,
last but not least refreshments. Some
of the stuntB, In which most of the
guests took part, were largely humor
ous. Pillow lights in which tho com
batants were astride a horizontal bar
with their feet tied, proved perhaps
the most popular of these.
Besides affording lots of amuse
ment, tho stag reception proves to be
one of the best places in which to
mingle with and become ono of the
student body. The program this year
will be varied from that of last, al
though those In charge guarantee
that it will be as good if not better
than that of last year. The program
will include short talks by represent
ative men from the various phases
of university life and student activ
ity. Besides this there will be the
