be Held in Lincoln on May 20.

DREAD DISEASE AND DRASTIC MEASURES ARE ' v
TAKEN TO CHECK IT
"Within, a few days a certifl-
cato of vaccination or permit
will bo roquired for all students
attending university olasses. Stu-'
donta may be vaccinated today
from 9 to 12 a. m. and 2 to 5
p. m. University womon will bo
vaccinated in tho woman's study
room in University Hall, and tho
men in 310 Nebraska Hall.1'
The spread of the dread dis
easo smallpox has reached a
crisis. The university authori
ties have been battling bravely
for the past few days in an at
tempt to stamp out the foul fiend.
But their efforts have been to no
avail. Yesterday it was learned
that moro now cases among;, the.
students had" .devoloptfcand that
drastic action must beckon at
once. Immediately tho' in tor-high
school othlotic meet and tho state
Tngh school championship debate
were indefinitely postponed. This
action was followed by tho issu
ing of two bulletins by the au
thorities in charge of tho cam
paign against the dread disease.
The first bulletin was read to the
various classes throughout tlio
university this morning. At least
Jihat was tho intention of the au
thorities when they were issued.
In several classes this was not
done, and oven by 11 o'clock pro
fessors did not cohiply with the
instructions of the first bulletin,
that they were to be read before
the members of their classes.
The second notice, which was
issued about 11 o'clock this morn
ing-, gave notice that it is advis
able that all students who- have
notbe vaccinated during tlio past
year bo vaccinated at once, or at
lonst consult a physician. Ar
rangements have been mado for
free vaccination on the campus.
All university, womon may be vac
cinated in room 7, Nebraska Ilall,
by Dr. Inoz. ?hilbrick and Dr,
Daisy. ITanseii, wlulo Dr. Wyman
and Dr. Waito will vaccinate all
men who come to them in room
310, Nobraska Hall. '
L Compulsory Vaccination. ,
Iast evoning Chancellor Avery
conferred with tho city health of
ficial in regard to. the action the
university authorities should take
in checking tho spread of the
smallpox opidemic. It was decid
ed that all' the students should
be vaccinated; T'his, means that
a compulsory 'general vaccination
rule has been established. The
bureau for vaccination which was
established will bo continued.
Thoso of tho student body who
have strenuous objections ,of sul
mitting to the operation have f
chance to evade the ruling. Ar-
INFECTED YFSTFfinY RY'tHr
rangemonts have boon mado for
tho issuing of certificates to thoso
of tho university students- who
are vaccinated and thoso who aj& . '
not will be granted permits, but
theso permits will only bo issuod
to thoso studonts who nrnspnt
themselves to Dr. ninmi nr nmn
other riorson each rhiv.
.This rulo must bo comnlied
with,, as after two 'days nov stu
dent in the university will bo al
lowed to attend classes unless
thoy aro ablo to presont oithor a
certificate or a permit. This rulo
will bo strictly complied with in
every respect . and no atudont
without either paper will bo al
lowed to attend classes. Tho
proposition of dismissing classes
throughout tho university was
nlso discussed at this .meeting,,
but it was decided that if this
action was taken that tho stu
dents will depart for their homes
over tho state and in that way
spread the infection. As tho uni
versity has no power to compel
students to remain tho city if
class woro dismissed, this prop- -osit:on
was vetoed. . -
Yestor'day three now additions
were mado to the list of tho uni
versity studonts at the pest house
Tho first student to. be taken to
tio hospital was Michael J.
Hughes, who rooms at 245 South
Fiftconth street. Hughes is 7a
member of the senior class and
has a prominent part in tho senior
class play, and his absence will
hinder tho workof the nlav com-
Imitteo to a great extent. It. II. '

vyrninoy was another university .
student who was laircn to tho iso
lation hospital to join tho univer- ;
fiity colony already there. ., .,
Tho first university woman to '
bo infected by tho' diseaso was
Mrs. Wolfe. She attended classes .
yesterday morning, and in, 'tho ,
afternoon she went to tho vac-'
cination bureau in Nebraska ilall
to bo vaccinate After awaiting
her turn to undergo tho opera- '
tion it was discovered that she
was already suffering from the
disoase, and was .irafmediately"
confined to a room in tho builds .
ing until she could bo taken to
the hospital. All university girls -,
have been cautioned to take ex-.
tra care against tho spreaa1 6f '
