It is hoped that tho weather will bo
fine enough to permit many to witness

ought to bo enough appreciation
shown by tho mombora of tho school

done in upholding thoir class honors
to cause enough' members of tho
classes to got out and aid thoir team
in at least this small way.

Tho action of .tho laws followed a
brief agitation by somo loading moln
hers of tho class. Tho plan mot In
stant favor, and It will undoubtedly bo
carried out with enthusiasm. Tho
laws Intend to show tho rest of tho
school what thoy can do and thoy
will sparo no offort to do tho stunt
right It is posslblo that scarlet and
cream caps or somo othor uniform may
bo worn to designate tho laws from
tho other banqueters.
Others May Follow.
With tho freshman laws starting the
movo, it is posslblo that other organi
zations may fall In. with tho idoa and
attend tho banquot in a body. The
Innocents announce that reservations
may bo mado so that any who deslro

ed. Some of tho regular student clubs
or somo of tho othor classes may tako
the matter up and docido to do their
part in boosting the banquot.
Tickets for tho annual dinner woro

tho purchases have been satisfactory.
The Innocents, who havo charge of tho

his dollar should receive 'full roturx
for his money. Following tho dlnnev
thoro will bo a series of toasts by
prominent students and alumni. Plans
for tho toast-list aro not yet qulto
complete, but it Is 'believed that a
prominent, Lincoln business man will
bo secured to introduce tho speakers.
The speeches will bo of interest- to
every student, and tho man who misses
tho banquet will lose something which
he cannot well afford to go without:
Tickets are selling at ll'por plato
and can be obtained from any mom
ber of the Innocents. "
