Entered at tho postofllco at Lincoln,
Nebraska, as second-class mall matter,

May o, 1911.
Tho Kansas meet has demonstrated
tho fnct thnt Nobrnska Is to be count
ed In Missouri Valley truck athletics.
Tho showing of the team and tho in
dividual1 was good. There was a large
crowd present, but the number of
spectators, was smaller than it should
have been. The relay race alone was
worth the price of admission.
The students have put the dande
lions under control. Now lot tho gar
deners keep busy and tho yellow flow

senate is to be congratulated on the
wisdom of this regulation,
BILLIE BURKE AT A MATINEE.
Request of 8tudents for Afternoon
Performance Is Granted.
Owing to the fact that many stu
dents had sent In requests to the
management of the Oliver theater thai
BIHIe Burke play a matinee perform
ance on Saturday afternoon, May 13,
tho favor Iibb been granted. There
were many who desired to go to the
military ball that evening and at the
same time did not want to let tho
chance go by to see the famous ac
tress. Now tho two events will not
conflict in tho leaBt Those who desire
to go to the ball may attend, tho play
in the afternoon. The matinee per
formance has been scheduled entirely
because of tho request of university
students. It was no easy matter to
got Bllllo Burke herself to consent,
and tho effortB of the Oliver manage
ment to arrange their shows so as not
to conflict with n university function
should bo appreciated by all.
IVY DAY MAY 20.
A Week from Saturday May Be Chosen
While there has beon nothing dell
nlte announced it is probablo that Ivy
dayi will be held May 20. It is also
probablo that some features of flic
program will be omitted. This has
been made necessary by the postpone
ment. At first It was thought the pro
gram would be given on fete day, May
19. For good reasons the change to
May 20 will likely bo made.
YATES RIFLE CLUB SHOOTS.
Beckman and Wohlenberg Secure
Tho Yates Rifle club, which is com
posed of cadet officers, has been en
gaging In regular practice. The shoot
was held indoors and artificial light
was used. The range was seventy-five
in that New High Toe
and Heel, $2.50 1415 O ST.
Next year should bo a great one
for track athletics, since with the ex
ception of ono man tho university ath
letic board Is composed of men who
take to the cinder path.
Some of you smokers' have been
forgetting and crowd over on the walk
at tho south gate. Step aside a little
farther if you must smoke between
hours.. Tho pedestrians must have the
unrestricted use of the walk.
That idea of abolishing examina
tions will be hailed with delight. After
nil it is a sort of barbaric way of test
ing the mental strength. The exam
ination has been the Mecca of all sluH
fers. If a man were reasonably
bright It was no difllcult matter to
get through the yoar without doing
any work njul then by a few hours'
cramming come out with higher
grades than a consistent student who
was not so lucky.
Getting through on chance will bo
done away with. It is tho real, hard,
steady work that counts under such a
system. There avo matjy who do good
daily work and got a llttlo excited In
the examination and are then unablo
to pass. This is an unavoidable in
justice under thooxaminatlon. Now'
the undeserving will fall and the Re
serving will pass. Such a method .will
undoubtedly raiso the standard of
scholarship at tho university. Tho
