Plans fop Charter Day Meet Are Com plete Will Be an Open Event First Tryout Saturday Aafternoon. 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. FOR THE DAILY NEBRASKAN 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 lfi.th 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. "Whero's vour tag?" "Do you take the-ItagT ,4You ought-to-slgn. a card You signed one, you say? Tlion show your tag. What, you dldnftt get one? Well, you better just sign up now and be done with It, for you'll get stung again soon." And the col lege man signed up. 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 ager had a dream last week.

A number of upper clasBinen, who had never before taken tln,pti per. were added fo the list or the elect.

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.
