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 tions soom to yorlfy tho rumor. . 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 ager, and accordingly football rela tlonos botweontho two schools aro at an end, unlessQio athletic board over rules ManagorEagor, and arranges for Novombor 19 as tho dato when tho two schools arp. to moot Nebraska has a gamo with Kansas Novombor 5, and tho following Satur day they moot Ames. This leaves them with Novombor 19 freo, which la necessary, as a hard gamo Is to bo playod Thanksgiving. A schodulo with, four hard gamos has proven dis astrous to Nebraska before, and tho management does not care for a sim ilar experience. GIVE8 TWO LECTURE8.

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 4,000 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 X IN FEE X Inauau 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 tho schodulos of tho Btudonta. O MORE NIGHT WORK.

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 date. " The faculty's failure to endorse 'foot ball is interpreted as meaning that the game Is Under suspension until' ttie rules'are changed. -If the changes lg the, .rules to be. made in New York next month fall to satisfy the profes sors, the future of 'the old' style game at the nildway Institution if mA to be problemallcal.'
