No Date With Iowa.
Thoro is a report abroad to Iho of
foct that Nebraska will not play Iowa
on tho gridiron noxt fall. This roport
is as yot unauthorized, but indica

According to roports, Iowa authori
ties deliberately closed a dato with
Purduo which Manager Eager had pre
viously asked for. Tho Iowans thon
said that thoy would play tho Corn
buskers on Nov. 19, but this date was
not satisfactory to tho Nebraska man

astrous to Nebraska before, and tho

rated at Unlversltyby Registrar
Harrison Considered a 8uccess.
Conflicts Not 8o Numerous.
Tho oxpocted attendance at the uni
versity for this year wfl.1 in all proba
bility bo reached. At tho beginning
of tho yoar tho oxecutlvo department
of tho university announced that tho
mark of 4,000 studcntB at the upivor
sity would probably bo reached. That
thiB high mark in the attendance at
tho institution will In all probability
bo reached is now announced.
Tho definite figures for the present
semester havo as yet riot boon deter
mined. But it is known that the num
bor of now BtudontB registering for
work this BomoBtor Is far in excess of
the number of thoso who commenced
tholr college work the second semes
ter last year)
Large Registration.
Tho number'" of Btudonta' who reg
istered for work nt the university
proper is vory largo. About 1,900 peo-
plo passed through the doors of tho
registrar's ofllco to hand in tholr slips
and signify tholr intention of taking
work for tho coming semester. Con
sidering tho numbor of students who
registered at tho beginning of tho
first semester and tho Increnso of now
students this semester tho mark of
4,000 students is almost .certain to bo
reached. Added to thoso who register
for work at tho university t aro tho"
largo number of students who register
for tho regular work at tho college of
agriculture. Thoro aro also t tho num
ber of short term studonts at tho farm
to bo added to this total and alBO tho
number of students at tho conserva
tory of music. As tho year at tho
conservatory 1b composed of four
terms, the now students at this part
of tho university Increases with, tho
inauguration of each torm. Tho num
bor of students who take rogular sum
mer school work at tho university also
must be considered. To this large
number of students muBt bo given the
credit of making tho attendance at tho
university very near the mark Of
Fees Increase.
Tho Increase in registration figures
at tho university is not alono in the1
attendance. Tho students havo paid
moro 'money into tho treasury of tho
university man tnoy did last year.
Tho total receipts by Treasurer Dales
for the first wook of tho second som-
OBter last year was "$15,649. This in
cluded all laboratory, professional 'and
Incidental fees. During tho same pen
rlod of timo this semester tho fees
have been $17,729. This shows an in
crease of $2,270 over the total of last
year. That this increase would have
been muoh larger is apparent but a
largo number of engineering students
paid foes for work last semester that
they woro unablb to tako on account
of tho.non.complptlon-ot-tho-new-en
glneering laboratories. Instead of re
funding tho mosey the university al
lowed this to bo applied on the fees
for the .Work In that college this sem
ester. This difference amounts, to
about r400, making In reality the in
crease of fees, paid' this semester
about 12,700 over that of tho secotid
semester of, last year ,
System a 8uccess.
Thar systom In voguo for. the regis
tration of .students for tho past two
semesters has .proven a great success.
Everything has gono smoothly and the
office has, been bothered less with
changes .in, the registration-of- tbe'stu-.
dents.' Formerly the students had
many conflicts and thoy woro thus
forced to chango tholr coursos. ThlB
now systom of having tholr courso
mado out by thoIi advisor, then
chocked by tho doan of tho collego In
which thoy aro taking work, and thon
rochockod by tho assignment commit
too hns causod vory fow conflicts and
also prohibited an overcrowding of
classes. This how systom 1b being
perfoctod and in timo will obvlato all
chanco of mistake and conflict in

Is football to' bo droDDdd by 'the

At a recent mooting of tho faculty
board of athletic control, Coach Stagg
was authorized to schedulo '1910' soc
cer games, but "was not authorized to
schedule any regulation football con
tests. Tho action was taken at a spe
cial meeting of the board and means
that soccer is tho only authorolzed
game for 1910 at' the university up to

The faculty's failure to endorse 'foot
ball is interpreted as meaning that the
game Is Under suspension until' ttie
