With the announcement of tho can
.didacy of Searle F. Holmca for presi
dent of the senior class, tho opening
gun of the fall political campaign was
flred yestorday. Clayton S. Radcllffo
and Herbert Potter are tho probable
aspirants In the third year class, and
bo far nothing has been heard from
the yotmsey politicians.
Holmes for Sure.
Searlo Holmes, better known as
""Pink," had not been regarded as
oven a. likely mark for the big Job,
but when some of His frlendB tackled
him, earnestly beseeching him to an
nounce himself, he consented. Holmes
is a progressive. Ho was a member
of tho Junior play cast last year, and
was tho grand mogul of tho junior
prom. He is a member of Phi Gamma

more sought after than the senior, If
the number of candidacies is to count
for anything. Clayton Radcllffo and
Herbert W. Potter are roported to bo
plunging headlong for a doadly battle.
Radcllffo waB on tho ground earlier
and his friends wore soliciting votoB
for him, but It Is thought that Potter
will pull a largo following. A num
ber of strange happonstanceB enshroud
this contest-to-be. Both men are law
Btudonts and both aro frat'ornlty men.
With this in view it has .been said
that an academic or an engineer
would stand good chances of splitting
tho law vote all to pieces and grab
bing the bacon.
FRAT RU8H STARTS TODAY.
Greek Hunters Will Enjoy a Short
Six o'clock this ovoning will mark
tho beginning of the open season for
Freshmen among Nebraska fraterni
ties', and already some few huntsmen
"are seen afield. Tho prospects seem
to bo especially promising this year,
and from all appearances rush week,
though short, will bo far from sweet.
A large number of "rushing;
smokers, parties, picnics and affairs
of all kinds have been scheduled, and
. a right merry time seems to loom
ahead of those fortunate enough to be
considered game by Greok-lotterdom.
The sororty Beason closed Satur
day, but on account of unavoidable
delays in a number ,of registrations,
"only part of the .pledges were per
fected, and ttfe Inter-sororlty "council
decided to withhold, the names of

Tho opening address of tho chan

convocation hour today. As previous
ly announced, no classes will bo held
at the 11 o'clock hour this year, all
attention being given over to convo

thought, will enable Btudonts to more

Tho chancellor's address is an an

tho nature of a greeting to the now

tho older ones. Last year the room

RUSH FOR SUIT8 AND SUPPLY
Manager of Athletics Earl O. Eager
has been forced to put In a hurry or
der for football equipment, although
the season has scarcely been begun.
A rush of FreBhmen yeBterday after
noon completely exhausted the supply
of suits and shoes on band, and after
a round hundred had been given out,
Eager throw up his hands. "I never
so many big men at Nebraska," said
he. "Every man that comes in wantB
a 42 jersey and takes a number 10
shoe.""" ' -" -
A fresh supply of the large sizes
was ordered by telegraph, and it is
thought will arrlvo today.
Practice at Farm.
Practice yesterday afternoon was
taken to tho Fdrm campus as tho rain
of Monday had softened the freshly
sodded field to such an extent that
scrimmage would have ruined it. The
entiro squad was taken out in a spe
cial car, and put through two hours
of gruelling training work. No heavy
scrimmaging is allowed at present, aB
Coach Stlehm doeB not wish to have
the development of the team delayed
by Injuries resulting from rough work
while the men are soft.
Several teams, picked at random,
were set to running elementary sig
nals, in various partB of tho field,
while the new men were being in
structed in tho gentle art of tackling
and falling on tho ball.
'It comes hard," said a Freshman,
grimy and perspiring, "but I gueBS it
will take just that to boat Michigan."
BOTANY 8TUDENTS HELPED.
Cut Rates on Outfits .Cause Run on
Sophomores and Freshmen who
registered for botany this semester,
have enjoyed a "rushing" season, for
Porter, the school supply man, has
cut and slashed the price on botany
outfits so that the same supplies
which sold for $2.75 last year aro sell
ing at $2.00 this fall. A first class
botany equipment for only $2.00
caused a sensation, and all of the Btu
dents acknowledged Porter' as "The
Cut-Rato Man." . v '

Physical defects that elude tho eye

In former years tho privileges al

said to have been abused by men who
obtained such reprelves, and then
failed to report either for practice on
the field or for drill. Manager E. O.
