BOHEMIA LAND OF CULTURE
PROFESSOR HRBkOVA8 LECTURE
ILLUSTRATED BY STEREOPTICAN
PICTURE8 SHOWING SCENERY
AND LIFE APPRECIATED.
Prague Saw the First World's Exposi
tion and the First Newspaper
Komensky Issued First
Professor Sarka Hrbkova gave a
stereoptlcon lecture on Bohemian life
yesterday morning at convocation that
proved very Interesting to those pres
ent. .Miss Hrbkova said that the term
Bohemia was misunderstood, It being
applied to so many other things than
the race of people. The term was
first used to designate the people by
Julius Caesar, and they stfll prefer the
old application of the word.
The speaker told of the location of
Bohemia in the nation called Austria
Hungary and of Its size and' shape.
Nebraska has 100,000 people who are
Bohemians, which is as large a Bohe
mian population aB any state in the
union. Pictures of some of tile great
men of Bohemia were shown and their
works told of. Bdjiemia has turned
autBOm"e" great scholars, musicians and
painters. Komensky turned out the
first text book that was ever used in
schools. A picture of a page of the
book showed work in four languages.
The first newspaper that was ever
published was "printed In Prague in
1515. The world's first exposition was
also held in Prague.
Some very beautiful slides showing
scenery in the mountains and valleys
were thrown on the screen. A num
ber of native costumes proved very
Interesting. The Bohemian's love for
the land of his birth Is well known.
Miss Hrbkova showed the national
hymn and expressed the hope that
they might find this country, which so
many have adopted for their home, a
land whore their dreams might be fulfilled.

During the rest of the year these

than In the past. Every endeavor Is
being made to make the programs In
torestlng and attractive.
Heated elections so far as the class
of 1911 is concerned are over. After
one of the hardest campaigns that hns
ever been waged for a class preslr
dency In the history of the University
of Nebraska, A. B. Amberson wob
chosen to fill tbo executive office for
the rest of the year. Never before
hns there been so large a vote polled
in a senior election, which shows the
interest that had been worked up, and
It required the second ballot for a de
cision. The sophomoreB Btlll maintained the
dignity In their election that bas char
acterized them throughout the cam
paign.' In spite of the fact that the
result was very doubtful, there were
fewer votes cast than in the senior
Seniors Dread to Act.
A. Ft. Raymond, the retiring presi
dent, upon calling the meeting to ordei
asked If there was any business to
come up before the election of a 'presi
dent. B. M. Cherrlngton moved that
the class select its Ivy diay orator at
a class meeting to be held not more
than three weeks hence. In oxplana-
stltutlon of the class made no provl
Blon for the selection of an orator for
Ivy day, and aB It was one of the
highest honors the class could bostow
It might bo best to have the class as
a whole select the orator. The mo
tion carried unanimously.
When the nominations were de
clared In order no one seemed to want
to break thoftre. Ralph Weaverllng
moved that the secretary bo instructed
to caBt the entire vote of the clasB for
A. R. Raymond for president. The
chair ruled this out of order. S. A.
Mutz then nomnlated Yale Holland in
a rather lengthy talk. H. W. Plasters
presented the name of Harry Hath
away and C. J. Lord' nominated A. B.
Amberson. Balloting was begun Im
mediately. Neary 300 Votes.
The first ballot resulted: Hathaway,
105; Amberson, 92; Holland, 8C. Mr.
Holland then withdrew. A good many

ballot. A good deal of Holland's

Clifford P. Phillips of Beatrice was
elected, after one of the cleanest clasB
campaigns ever waged at the Univer
sity of Nobrnska, and Kenneth Am
merman of St. Joseph, Mo., was do
feated. The campaign was strictly a
gentleman's scrap. Both candidates?
as well as their friends, refrained
from any "mud-Bllnglng." A persist
ent policy of advertising the favored
man Instead of running down tho op
ponent, mado the campaign and tho
election a quiet affair.
TJiequeBtlQn.wJB. decided injfnvor
of Phillips yesterday at the rate of
132 to 78. The meeting wbb held In
the Temple theater. It had originally
been scheduled for Memorial hall, but
when tho seniors wnnted the use of It
for today, the sophomores arranged to
Bhlft their meeting to tho theater.
Phillips 1b a six-year law student,
and Ib at the present time registered
In the college of science and arts. Ho
has been prominent in the affairs of
Ills class, and has been chairman of
three Important class committees. He
is a member of the Delta Chi frater

H. B. English reported for the class
committee on intorclass debate. Can
didates for tho debating team are to
hand their names to C. L. Rein or
H. B. English before February 16. The
sophomore try-out will be held on Feb
ruary 22. The sophomores are expect
ing to put out a strong team.

Several Applicants for Registration
Refused by the Committee.
Nine applicants for entrance to the
University of Nebraska have been re
fused permission to register. Tho de
linquency committee at its meeting
last night decided to refuse registra
tion not only to seven studentB who
had already been held up, but also to
two others. All of them were reg
istered In the university last semester.
The educational standard of the
University of Nebraska Is steadily be
coming higher and students who have
a desire to "sluff" all of the time are
not welcome within the college fences,
at leaBt as students.
ProfeBsor Engberg, secretary of the
delinquency committee, sald-last-nlght
that the only cause for refusing regis
tration to these students was pure de
linquency. The cause for the delin
quency of one of the students was im
maturity or tho Inability to do the ad
vanced rtype"ofwrokrTeqnulred--of a
university student. One of the stu
dents had reglstered-ln a certain sub
ject for four consecutive semesters
and "flunked" each time. The cause
of delinquency of the other seven was
nothing more nor less 'than pure
"slufllng." The seven are all bright
young peojile, It is said, and any one
of them should be capable of making
a good allowing as a university stu
dent, if he was only willing o buckle
down to good hard study.
Slowly but Surely Hideous Bush Dis
appears from Legal Lips.
Mustaches in the senior law class
have had a short career. Slowly but
surely they have been disappearing,
and very few now remain. When It
wub first decided by tho 'class to wear
the hairy decorations, terrible punish
ments were threatened the first one
who should refuse. Accordingly they
all made a start.
None cared to commit themselves,
so It was impossible to learn the .of
ficial reason. One man ' remarked:

Cessation of Interest In tho frosts

which was dominant a fow days ago
has now entirely disappeared. Many
entrlos, some entirely uneuspoctod,
have been added to tho first meager
list, and sufficient enthusiasm has
been demonstrated! by frequenters Of
the gymnasium to warrant prospects
of a big success. If such Is the case,
tho freshman-sophomoro Indoor meet
1b destined to becomo an annual ovont
in the history of tho two lower classes.
Tho management of both the, first
and second year teams huvo concurred
on a definite program for Saturday
night. ThlB wa8 announced after all
the try-outs of tho respective classos
had been completed last night. All of
tbo freshman try-outs were held last
night, and were such a demonstration
of "athletic "Ability "us forebodes- tho
downfall of the sophomore at tho
hands of tho "Intrusive" freshman.

In the sophomore camp.

made by tho freshman class:

The university basketball varsity
five will play Kansas university to
night on the Lawrence floor. Fate has
certainly been against the Nebraska
boys on the present conquest of con
ference teams. Their failure to get
bettor than an even break with Ames
was a. surprise and a source of regret
to the local students. It appeared
that in all probability they would an
nex both games of the Aggie series.
This was not the result. The same
misfortune accompanied them to Mis
souri and they failed to show the Co
lumbians a victorious Inning. Why
they could not land a double-headed
wreath Is a mystery to the followers
of tbo game. The chances at Kansas

are exceedingly poor, and if they
