Lower 8alary Offered Than He Asked,
and Another 8tudent Has Ap
plied for Position
as Coach.
At a meeting of the athletic board
yesterday afternoon, B. M. Cherring
ton of Oraaoh was 'elected to fill the
position of track coach this spring.
The matter now rests with Cher
rington himself as to whether he will
coach the cinder path squad this
spring or not. The salary that ho
was offered by the board was some
what lower than tho amount ho agreed
to do tho work.
At a meoting of the board last
week I. P. Hewitt, who coached tho
basketball team this so)i6on, was
tendered tho position. The meeting
of the board was poorly attended and
the student members of tho board
were favorable to Hewitt and ho was
Faculty Members Oppose.
Tills action was vigorously opposed
by tho faculty raombers of- the board,
and one of the student mombcrs of
tho board moved for reconsideration
of tho matter. This was done and the
meetingyestorday was held.
The question at stnko now is, as to
whether Cherrington will .accept the
conchship at the salary offered. If he
does not accept, oho of tho other mem
bers of tho student body who has
made application for the' conchship
job will be appointed.
The board also elected Owen
Prank, quarterback on tho football
team last fall, to fill tho vacancy on
tho board caused by tho resignation of
William ThTUoupkoT .

on tho toam for four yours, and in his
senior year won the all round athletic
championship of the school. While
in high school ho was also a member
of tho Y. M. C. A. track team. Ho
graduated from high school in 1904,
and with tho exception of one year
has been employed as a coacH of ath
letics since that time, including in
the teams that he has coached prac
tically .every, lino of athletics.
; Tho first ''year he was out 'of high
school, In 1904-5, he was employed as

bolfh basketball arid track and wort
the football championship of southern
Michigan. In 1D0G In tho southern

years nlBO, the Adrian Y. M. C, A. bas

track. His work in dovoloping a
championship track team was all tho
more remarkable from tho fact that
It was practically tho first toam that
Omaha had had for eight years and
was developed entirely from nw ma

Feel that They Should Have Pay as
Assistants for the Time that They
Spend as Officers of
the Battalion.
Pay for tholrtwork. Thnt Is 'whrtt
the four-year men of tho cadet battal
ion want. Ever since the cadot bat
talloa was organized the men who
have drilled four yoars havo rtfcolvod
no compensation for their work ex
cept tho honor of having been tho
captain of one of tho cadot companion
or perhaps major of tho battalion.
Tho matter has been discussed to a
great oxtept by tho members of the
battalion, (espooially.apiong tho .uppor,
classmen who are drilling, and they
aro of the opinion that fmy should
receivo somo compensation for tho
timo that they put into drill besides
tho honor of commanding ono of tho
cadet companies.
Are Assistants.
Thero are many of tho cadet cap
tains who have in the past drilled for
tho honor which they havo gained by
doing so. They havo liad to purchnso
their uniforms and spent four hours
oachsweok for. this, honor. Tho cttdall
captain's uniform costs nearly twonty
dollars, and added to this the time
that is spent thoro is no return for
tho labor which tho cadet captain
doos. The captains nnd other four
year men are ranked tho stuns as
assistants iit'thla department, but they
aro assistants without pay. Therefore
the men of tho battalion havo been
considering tho proposition of drawing
up a potitlon to tho university senato
id see If tliey cannot bo granted pay
for the timo they spend In, drilling tho
freshmen and sophomores.
Tho men who drill" three yeurs nro
given two hours credit each somestor
'for tho work they do In that depart
mentT' This Is llstq'd In tho unlvorslty
catalog as course T'S2t" and "82" Jn
the department of military science.
Tho course for the third-year men who
aro taking this Work In the 'depart
ment is called a course in tho Instruc
tion of cadets. Tho four-year mon of
tho battalion argue thnt if tho men
who have drilled but two years aro
allowed two hours crodlt In tholr
third year of drill the mon who havo
drilled three years should either bo
given assistants' pay for their work
in tho fourth year In that department
or moro university credit. At the
presont time tho four-year mon got no
unlvorslty credit nt all for tholr wqrk
In drill.
No Action Yet
As yet tho cadets havo taken "no ac"

yot whon thoy will net. Tho matter
huBilJeenidiscjiHHcd to a groat length
by tho4four-ycur mon In tho' battalion
and somo deilnito arrangement will be
taken it is thought shortly. The
matter of petitioning tho unlvorslty
senate to consldor tho -matter Is
thought most favorablyof and it is
highly probable-that this will bo tho

Changing of Requirement Rules In

Makes Seniors Worry.
Another question has been Uikon.
Tho mombors of tho Junior nnd fresh
man debating teams will not discuss
tho county option question, which was
tho subject of tho dobatos In the pro
limlnnrlOH between tho froshmon and
sophomores and botwoen tho sonlors
and Juniors.
After tho dobato botweon tho Juniors
and Honiorsr Jn which tho- roprosontn-
lives of tho Junior olnss wero .victori
ous, tho proposition arose that a now
question for tho championship debnto
was neodod. At a recent mooting of,
tho In tor-class dobntlng bonrd it was
decided that another question would
bo debuted.
Fifteenth Amondment.
The question which will bo dobntod
on tho 22d of March In Memorial hall
botweon tho representatives of tho
Junior and freshman class Is, "Re
solved, That tho fifteenth amendmont
of tho Constitution of tho Unltod
States should bo repealed." This de-t,
bate will bp on Phi Bota Kappa day at

X nw to Thota Kappa Nu will bo

to Phi Bota Kappa, but Its. member
ship is confined to thoso receiving the
highest scholarship record Jn the.
senior class of tho college of law.
Tho number of tho members of the ,'
senior class to bo olectod, to Phi .Beta '

yot. Tho rovlsion of tho oloctlvo sys
tem in which In tho collogo of arts
nnd-sclonces only six of the oight plecr
tlves nro required has made a nuniber
of tho mombors of tho sonior class In
eligible for Phi Beta Kappa. Tho con
stitution of tho organization provides' -that
mombors of tho senior class must
.havo taken seven of tho eight linos 'of
