manifested athletic ability of any vari
ety should participate In tho Ivy day
meot. This Is considered by the track

to give him a valuable lino on the
first year athletes. Tho freshmen won

It- was definitely ascertained yester
day that the Unlversl.ty of Nebraska 'Is
to havo a new dramatic club. Tho
movement was started last fall by

No names havo been given out, but
It Is understood that tho now club will
not conflict with tho ono which has
been in existence for somo time. Tho
lines of study will be more along tho

started by several prominent Juniors
and so far ,momtiers have not been
