FRATERNITIES MAKE GOOD.
To Be No Restrictions on Pledg
ing at Kansas.
After receiving the scholarship
report of the different fraterni
ties of tho University of Kansas
at their meeting the other night,
tho regents of that institution re
fused to take action with regard
to pledging regulations for the
Greek letter organizations.
Last week representatives from
all of the fraternities met tho
board of regents and presented
to them tho reasons why the fra
ternity men believe that there
should bo no sophomore pledging
rulo. Their principal argument
was the fact that the scholarship
of tho fraternity men during tho
fall term of this year was above
that of non-fraternity men.

FOUR MEN FILE THEIR
NAMES WITH DR. CLAPP
CANDIDATES FOR ELECTION
TO ATHLETIC BOARD.-
MONDAY IS THE LAST DAY TO FILE
Reed, Amberson, Metcalfe and
Frank Announce that They
Are Candidates for
With tho time limit for tho fil
ing of names with tho secretary
of tho athletic board ncaring a
close, four men havo announced
that they aro candidates for tho
position of student members of
tho athletic board. These four
men aro G. E. Reed, A. B, Am
borson, Owen Frank and, W. A.
Thcso men aro all well known
athlotcs at the university and
havo participated in the various
lines of sports at this institution.
Each year five men aro chosen
from the student body by direct
votes of the students, tho faculty
mombers and alumni of tho uni
versity. Bosides these five stu
dent members of tho board there
are six faculty members choson
from tho univorsity senate.
All Candidates Athletes.
Tho prcsont candidates aro all
athletes. Reed is a well known
yenr on tho track toam. Ho won
his letter last year, and this year
ho is picked to win many points
for Nebraska in the short runs.
Amberson has been a member
of tho cross-country team for the
past two years and won his let
ter both years. This year ho was
captain of the cross-country team'.
Ho also won his letter on tho
basketball team this year, holding
down tho position of guard.
Frank last year won his "N"
on tho footb.aH team, where ho
played quarter and half back.
Ho is a member of tho baseball
team this year, and was recently
elected to fill tho vacancy on tho
athletic board caused by William
Chaloupka being graduated last
Metcalfe was tho star short
stop on tho baseball toamyand -this
year he is holding down tho
same 'positionon tho team. Ho
won his ".N" last year on tho
baseball team and has a fine
chance' of doing so again this
This is the third election under
tho ruling of the athletic board.
Previous to this time the olec.
tions were more or less of a fight.
Twenty-five cents was charged
for each voter to vote and this
led to more or less corruption by
a candidate buying votes and in
fact paying the fee charged for
the would-be voters to cast their , ,
ballots in his favor. This sys
tem caused much dissatisfaction
and tho present system of, voting
for the candidates by means of
the Australian ballot- system. This
new system has proven very sat
isfactory and is found to be the ,
best system to use iu electing
members to the athletic board.
