on- Jaw.
If Nebraska doesn't boat Minnesota
at Omaha, neit Saturday, It will not
be due to a lack of coaching. Five
coacheB were on the field In yester
day's practice, watching every move
ment and ready at all times to point
out the faults of the Individual play-.
ors and show them how to Improve
their work.
It was an Inspiring sight to side

The registration iBnot confined to
upper classmen, but many freshmen
have entered the lists. The increase
In registration over last year is due in
x large measure to the fact that while
two try-outs were held last year, only
one is to be held this year. This
try-out will in all probability como thd

Details of Try-Out Announced by Miss
Howell, Who as President of Club
and Head, of Department, Su-
'perlnterids Work.
The University Dramatic Club is to
put on some excellent productions this
winter in addition to many other
phases of the work, which will be
pushed with Unusual vigor. MIsb
Howell has already been beset With
many Inquiries regarding the club, Its
rules, and Its program for the winter,
and unusual interest is manifested on
the part of the club members them
selves. The club will hold its first meeting
Thursday evening at 7:45 in the club
rooms In the Temple, at which time a
short curtain raiser will be given by
Miss EHther Bailey and Mr. Searle
DayfB. . , .. ,.
Upper classmen seem to be mani
festing u.nusUal Interest in the work
this year. While in all branches of
college ,actl.yltlfis, .the lieginnlngpf the
college year is marked by a renewal
of enthusiasm, yet this year that of
the dramatic club is not confined alone
to the new men. Many of these have
already inquired regarding the date
of the try-outs, which, as was an
nounced last evening, are to be held
November 11.
Change In Requirement.
Admission to the club was not al
ways granted on the basis of a 'try
out" before judges. Eight years ago,
when the department of elocution was
new at Nebraska, Miss Hoytoll and a
few students who were Interested In
college dramatics, organized the club.
At that time all of the students in the
elocution classes were eligible for
membership. As the department be
came larger the club adopted the try
out plan, which is now In use.
Every fall Miss Howell, the pros!-,
dent of the club, appoints a commlt-
Itee of club members With perhaps
some interested member of the faculty,
before whom the students desiring ad
mission to the club present what is
called a "try-out." Usually some well
known scene from classic drama, . a
dialogue or a recitation Is chosen .by
the would'be member. Ten minutes
1b the tlme-llmlted for .the tryrout. A
list of good scenes is, always posted-in

Once admitted to the club, the inter
esting work begins. Before becoming
full Hedged members thd now mom-,
bern are required to present a play
bofore the club as an initiation within
a month after passing the try-outs.
During the year the club holds month
ly 'meetings In tho club room in the
Temple. TheBo meetings are partly
business and partly social in char
acter. A program consisting of a Bhort
play, u recitation or a talk on some
-matter of dramatic interest, Is always
arranged for by a special commlttoe.
During the year tho club always pre
sents several plays in public at tho
Templo Theater. Those given last
year wore, "Tho American Citizen" and
"Tho ToaBt Master." The cast of the
senior play, which Is the great event
of commencement week, Is always
chosen largely "from the dramatic
club, for those who have had experi
ence and training in thoir club work
are usually best qualified for the roles.
The aim and hope of thd club Is to
ralBe the standard of tho work done
by the members, year by year, until
tho Nebraska club can hold an famous
a place in college circles 'as the dra
matic clubs of the great eastern
schools, whertf). the Importance and
prominence of the dramatic club is
second to no other phase of college
