With scarce a. month elapsing Blnce tho dedication of tho now athletic field, steps are already being taken to use a part of tho ground for purposes other than those for which It was orig inally purchased. Just as tho old Ne braska Hold was gradually given, over to other uses, so tho flrBt encroach ment upon the new field Is already pro posed. Tho suggested chango which 1b arousing opposition among students familiar with the circumstances has Its basic feature in the proposed removal of tho medical collego animal house and tho carpenter shop to sites in tho corners of the new field. These build ings, which aro little . more than wooden shacks, stand in front of Me chanic Arts hall and are a consider able offense to those observers pos sessing a sense of what Is beautiful and what is not. Move by Regent. The proposed change is suggested by one of tho board of regents who is anxious to see tho main campus cleared of tho present unsightly struc tures. He proposes to move all the shacks which are not fit for tho cam pus back to the athletic field. This idea meets with emphatic opposition on tho part of Manager Eager and oth ers. In -speaking of tho proposition, Man ager Eager said yesterday: "It simply means that tho same old story Is to bo done over again. With tho old field it was first a corner hero and then a lot there, until finally they chopped off tho whole end of tho field with the Physic building. Then a lit tle later camo tho Engineering build ing and tho whole field was gone. Now the same thing is being started on the now field, loss than six weeks after it was completed. "Wo havo not room enough for tho athletic interests of the university on tho new field, let alone tho other buildings. Wo need a club house on the field and other little buildings of our own for athletic uses. But we felt that wo wore too cramped for space to afford UBing it in that way and bo we dispensed with our own building. If wo aro to havo a decent gridiron and a track of any sort at all wo must have tho use of the entire space now glvon us. Will Spoil Plan. "It has been tho plan of the ath letic management over since starting tho now field to havo a field that would be a credit to Nebraska. We intended to havo a nice, clean-appearing ground. Now it Is proposed to dump over upon ub all tho old buildings which aro not thought fit for tho main campus. Wo want our part of tho campus good looking, just as othorB want their end of It to appear well. "But the big difficulty is the actual room Itself. We need all that wo have got, and we cannot 'afford to give a bit of it up." The Lyric. Tho Lyric Stock company is putting on this week the great detectivo story, "Tho Sign of the Four," by A. Conan Doyle. It is a thrilling drama and has a deep laid plot, with a climax at tho end of tho third act that holdB tho au dience breathless. Sherlock Holmes, the great detective, is the hero of tho nlav and tho rolo gives Mr. Noble a chance for some very powerful acting. The costumes wore appropriate and tho scenery was good, tho air of mys tery and crime being well preserved throughout. The applause given Miss Carter, who played tho orphan, Mary Anderson, attested to her great popu larity, but she did not havo much chance to show her skill. Besides tho high drame(.lc interest there are bits of good comedy in Boveral placeB. The play will bo glvon tho rest of the week. Tho cast of characters Is as follows: Sherlock Holmes, detective Mr. No ble. Dr. Watson, ex-army surgoon Mr. Klrkland. Jonathan Small, escaped convict Mr. Druoim. Inspector I'nen, Scotland yaid Mr. Murdock. Wiggins, gutlei snipe Mr. Clifton Tonca, East Indian dwarf Mr. Bel- lalro. Major Sholto, retired array otneor Mr. Franklin.

One of tho best bills of the season is on at tho Orphoum this week. Vari ety and excellence of Individual acts combino to make tho program a most pleasing ono. The first three numbers aro each of high grade and it Is hard to pick tho hoadllner. Mr Ray Mont gomery and tho Healey Blstors open tho program in rather disappointing novelty singing and dancing. They got steadily better, however, and the close of their act is unusually good. The sisters fail to qualify as regu lation choruB girls, but as hayseeds they make a hit. Mr. J. F. Kelly and MIbs Kent aro billed as "two real vaudevilles," and thoy come well up to tho title glvon them. Their wit is keen and new. Miss Winona Winter is the third of tho trio of superlative opening acts. Miss Winter sings and Imitates in a delightfully winsome monnor. Her oxcellont imitation of the SwodlBh- Amerlcan and tho knowledge that she is a Minnesota girl hint strongly at her own nativity. But, not question ing her nationality, the audience lik Miss Winter. With the llrst three numbers out of thq way, Clark's monkeys provide poor entertainment. Tho stunts are poor, old and tircBome. Subers, Cook ley & McBrlde In minstrel stunts are Y. W. C. A.

Tho ranking of tho collogos who com peted is as follows: Amos, first; On tario, second; Ohio, third; Kansas, fourth; Nebraska, fifth; Missouri, sixth, and Texas, Bovonth. AmoB, tho winning team, had first placo by a margin of over 150 points out of a posslblo 1,000. Nebraska's closest ranking competitor, KanBas, only had a margin ot two ovor tho Cornhusk ors.
