Many Have False Idea that Students
Are Prohibited.
Students entitled to vote at the
elections today are those who claim
Lincoln as their residence and haye
the other qualifications of the ordinary
voter. The proposed bill to prohibit
students voting did not pass the legis

not vote at the i rlhmrles for that rea
son. All those who have registered
may vote and those who did not may
do so by certificate, if ..they can furnish
a valid reason for not having reg
istered. The mere fact that one
student at tho university does
have any effect upon the matter.
