Preparations for tho big University
' Night have at last taken a definite
form. It Is scheduled to occur Fri
day night, February 17, In tho Temple
theater. Tho last clause Is purely op
tional, however, and if tho affair ac
quires greater proportions than aro
warranted at present, tho placo of Its
presentation will probably, bo changed
to tho Oliver.
A New Idea.
Tho idea of holding an all Univer
sity Night, in .which no association or
organization Bhould receive favorable
discrimination, was conceived by a
univorslty Btudent sevoral months
ago. At that time student interest
was solicited and secured, and suf
ficient endorsement was obtained to
u.arantee least one succejgfjL.&t:
tempt. Slnse that time promoters of
tho University Night havo become
very ' enthusiastic over the prospects
of making tho. event an- annual fea
ture of university entertainment. That
such" will bo the case is now almoat
Tho Univorslty Night at Nebraska
will bo essentially the same as the
university nights held at other Insti
tutions. In fact tho success of such
a form of entertainment at many of
the large schools, such as Illinois,
"Wisconsin, West Point, was partially
tho cause of its recommendation to
Nebraska; this rccommondation pri
marily coming from the university Y.
M. C. A. The Night, aB now planned,
however, Is not under tho super
vision of tho Y ,M. C. A., Innocents,
or any other particular phase of school
activity, but will bo directed by a com
mittee appointed or selected from
each; organization represented, this
committee to act as a whole.
The program, partially prepared, for
University Night Is as follows:
Fraternity minstrel show, now ex
pected to be tho leading number of
the bill, In which every fraternity in
tho school will be represented. This
is under tho surveillance of W. H.
'Coulter, Phi Gamma Delta. Ho prom
ises some novel entertainment for
the students that will rival the most
delightful productions of Eddie Foy
or Eva Tanquay. The Dramatic club
is to present "A Pair of Lunatics,"
which is anticipated to be very appro
priate to and harmonious with the
general character of tho evening. The
literary societies, Including tho Pal
ladlan and Union, have not announced
anything definite. The glee club will
give a musical entertainment, prob
ably of a more serious nature than
the other acts. The Medical society.
Is to present a farco operation of a
"faculty" member. This is destined
to be highly humorous and more gor
geous than gory. Because of certain
conditions- involved, this will un
doubtedly Be'TieartlI appreciated
GHILOS MEETS THE ATHLETIC
Mombers of the athletic board had
as their guept of honor at a luncheon
at the Lindell hotel, when about
twenty-flvo were present, yesterday
noon C. C. Chllds, who Is a prom
inent candidate for tho -all-year coach
at Nebraska. In fact, tho purpose was
to allow Mr. Chllds to meet the mem
bers of the board and Chancellor
Avery and becomo acquainted with
tho condition of affairs at tho uni
versity. Dean C. R. Richards acted as toast
master and Chancellor Avery was the
first speaker. Mr. ChlldB then told
of his first Impression of Lincoln and
the university. Ho expressed himself
as being pleased with tho treatment
accorded him by tho authorities of tho
univorslty during his stay, and ex
plained tho necessity of puro ath
letics. Professors Wolfe and Caldwell
told of the early athletic history of
tho school, and Professor Barbour
gave an Interesting account of the
gameB of old Rome.
Those present were then given a
chance to meet Mr. Chllds and talk
with him iporsonally. Tho latter was
not disposed to say much concornlnc
hrthletics nndrHnade-'no prophesies of-
eitner success or failure along that
line. He made many friends.
While there Is nothing official, this
has been taken to mean that Mr.
ChlldB Is the choice of tho board and
will bo recommended to the regents
for tho Nobraska coachshlp.
During tho day the athletic situa
tion at Nebraska was gone over In
detail and tho needs of tho school
along that lino discussed. Mr. Chllds
will remain In Lincoln today and will
return to Yale to take tip his college
work again tho first of tho weok.
Tonight the freBhman and Bopho
nioro will settle their differences In
tho last contest between tho two
classes. Having won tho Olympics,
the first year men aro confident that
they will ue ublo to ropeat tho trick
ngnln tonight. Those best acquainted
with tho .line-up also favor them as
the winners. Tho sophomorcB'on tho
other hand bellovo tho over-confidence
of their opponents will bo a decided
advantage for them and It may result
In a second year victory. In sovoral
of tho events they havo men entered
who are some of tho best In tho
school. After the two contesting
teams havo faced each other In tho
armory tonight It will bo far more
easy to tell the result. All mombers
of both classes aro bolng urged to got
out and make a noise to cheer their
Try-outs for the Charter day meet
-wUl-boheldthi8-Trftornoon In tho
gymnasium, only bIx men can enter
the finals In the meet, and Uiobo who
do not appear In tho preliminaries
will not be allowed to compote. So
far enough have signified their Inten
tions of taking part so as to assure
the success of the event, and tho out
look Is most encouraging to Bay the
the tactics and science In a novel
"take-off" on "things .In general." This
will resemble a similar "analogy"
made last year.
