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
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.
Jonathan Small, escaped convict
Mr. Druoim.
Inspector I'nen, Scotland yaid Mr.
Wiggins, gutlei snipe Mr. Clifton
Tonca, East Indian dwarf Mr. Bel-
Major Sholto, retired array otneor
Mr. Franklin.
Mordocal Smith, owner of tho "Au
rora" Mr. Lathrop.
Mrs. Sholto, tho major's wife MIbb
Mrs. Hudson, lodging house keepor
Miss Mackoy.
Bessie, Mrs. Hudson's niece Miss
Mrs. Smith, wife of Miss
Mary Maston, an oiphan Miss Car-tor.
Cash Prizes of Almost $700, and Two
$250 Scholarships for Ne

Orpheum Vaudeville.
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
