Plans fop Charter Day Meet Are Com
plete Will Be an Open Event
First Tryout Saturday
Things In athletic circles have In
deed been stirring of late. With the
departure of the . varsity basketball
team for a conference jaunt including
Ames, Kansas and Missouri; the an
nouncement that the annunl Charter
day Indoor nicety will be an "open"
event to all university students; and
the pent up Interest and expectancy
associated with the recommendation
of the committee appointed by the ath
letic board to investigate the quali
ties of the numerous applicants to the
position of all-year-round university
coach, which recommendation will
probably be made today, those ath
letically Inclined are prone to specu
late on the outcome of such a medley.
Basketball Conquest.
The varsity basketball team has un
dertaken one of the most severe con
quests of the year, consisting of a
series of three double-header engage
ments. Last night and tonight they
will be entertained by the Ames Ag
gies. Speculators on these game.B of
course give Nebraska the best of the
odds. Ames ought never to have been
allowed to "split-oven" with the Corn
huskers In their invasion of Nebraska,
and should not have done so had not
Hlltner been put out In the second
game. Now that Nebraska hnB taken
the Initiative, however, the chances for
a double annexation at Ames are fair
ly good. The "dope" on the Missouri
game Is not so favorable to the Mn
coin live, but nevertheless, It seems
highly probable tha.t the result can
not be worse than an oven break.
Charter Day Meet.
Definite plans have been made for
the annual Charter day meet. It will
be an 'o'pen" event; open In everj
sense of the word. All students In
any way affiliated with the unlverslt
are eligible for the try-out, this to In
clude state farm students and specials
The amateur standing will be the only
requisite to athletic aspirants.
' A try-out for this event will be held
next Saturday afternoon at 3 o'clock.
All who anticipate entering for the
contest on the must first appear
at the try-out and pass through the
sifting propess. Since there are so
many entries for the "open" evont,
those ofllclatlng have deemed It advis
able to cut out all but the six host in
all events except the sprint, the lat
ter to be limited to eight. No chnnge
of shift will be made after Saturday In
the entries.
Ail-Year-Round Coach.
'So ihuch has been said and pub
lished recently concerning the selec
tion of the university all-year-round
athletic coach, so little of which has
been official, that it Is Interesting to
note the actual conditions as they now
appear. At the Instance of theunlver-
-ffIty-TTthjfH't-'""wV n-f-nmmUtPQ was
appointed somo time ago to Investi
gate the, applicants to the position ' in
question and t to recommend to the
board one or more of these gontlemon.

You signed one, you say? Tlion

During the Dally Nebraskan bum
schlption campaign the Silver Serpents
tempted the students while the Black
.Mnsk robbed them in an extraordinary
manner, known only to the experi
enced maid of the mask. The Silver
Serpents solicited in tlie armory dur
ing registration week and during the
same days the Black Masks played the
hold-up game in the registrar's of
fice. Although several scores of new sub
scriptions were added to the list, many
others were simply renewals of the
old subscribers. The business man

The Dally Nebrnskan's campaign,
for subserli.tions was some Binall sue

who had never before taken tln,pti

Not all of the old tlmerB .have yet
come around, but the campaign for

Several came Into the olllco yeBtcr
day with heavy hearts and asked If
they could do their duty by signing
up "They didn't get me." wild one or
the young ladles, "but I want to take
the paper again this flemoster." It did
not take long to make out a receipt
for the dollar. Another university girl,
was happy.
The campaign is not yet over. The
business manager Is still receiving
subscriptions. Evory member of the
staff has a receipt book In IiIh pocket,
and all are on the lookout. The larger
