There was not much enthusiasm
manifested at tho freshman election

attendance was small, tho main busi
ness being tho olectlon of tho minor
officers. Before tho election, a report
on tho Olyniplcs was hoard and it was
decided that tho qlass should stand
part of the expenses provldod there
could be. Anequitable division -as- to
the cow bells.
Tho freshmen claim they aro only
human, consequently they refuse to
pay for something they did not got.
Last year before tho Olympics there
was an agremont between tho two
lower classes, In which they agreed to
share tho expense of tho contest. Tho
sophomores have paid their part and
aro waiting for tho first year men to
donate $G.G5 as their share. Tho
freshmen, however, point to one of
tho items for cow bells, and insist that
as they cannot account for any of tho
bells they do not feel duty bound to
pay for them.
A reading of tho class constitution
as drafted by tho committee was heard
but discussion deferred until tho next
meeting. Tho olectlon of officers fol
lowed. There was no balloting, and
each person nominated was mado tho
unanimous chose of tho claBS. Tho
new officers chosen woro: VIce-jreBl-dent,

neBday without discussion accepted
tho report of the special committee on
university removal. This does not
moan, however, that there 1b no op
position to removal. It is known that
some members will fight the proposi
tion, but what their strength is
is hard to tell. In tho sonato tho re
port was laid over on account of the
absence of somo of the senators.
A measuro was Introduced Wednes
day in both houses which deals with
ways and means of removal. Section 1
of tho bill provides for the creation of
a special university building fund to be
raised by a 1 mill levy on all property
In tho state during tho year 1911 and
each successive year until 1918. Sec
tion 2 provides that all money derived
bo used for the benefit oftho Univer
sity of Nebraska and bo spent by tho
board of regents in bringing about the
removal to the stato farm, In equip
ment and such other purposes as tho
regents deem necessary to carry tho
project through. Section 3 authorizes
and empowers tho regents to Bell the
whole or any part of tho buildings on
tho present campus, tho proceeds to
bo turned into a special university
fund. Section 4 provides for a formal
appropriation of ono mill tax levy for
tho ensuing blennium.
Tho bill was introduced in tho houso
by Kirk of Knox and in tho sonato by
Smith of "Fillmore. It will bo taken
up by tho houso next Wednesday at 2
