Lela Berry Is President of the Girls
Miss Alice Ensign Ardent
All University of Nebraska women
may not know that the University has
an organization with the express pur
pose of ''grandmothering" them
looking out for them when they are
sick, loaning them money when they
need It, keeping them from getting
lonesome, and, incidentally, keeping
them out of bad company. But such
is the case. The organization is
called the University Girls' club, and
it Is controlled by a board consisting
of four seniors, four juniors, four
sophomores, and flvo women mombers
of the faculty, ono of whom is Miss
Alice Ensign, the Adviser of Women.
Board Meeting Held.
The board hold Its first meeting yes
terday morning. Tho officers solqcted
last spring for this year are: Lola
Berry, president; Lucllo Reeder,
treasuror; Lorena Bixby, secretary.
The now board started with a deter
mlnatlqn to expand tho Influence of
tho club and to broaden Its alms. It
found that a largo majority of Uni
versity gttjs did not know of tho ox
lstonco of tho club, and, to remedy
tilings at onco, tho president sont out
during tho summer, a letter to ovory
girl student tolling all about the club
and Inviting hor to Join. Over two
hundred girls responded. The club
therefore starts out this term with a
membership that exceeds any former
Miss Ensign is vory enthusiastic
about tho club and Its work. "Wo
want it to bo tho organization of tho
school best fitted to look after . the
largo interests of University women,"
she said when Interviewed. "I am
very hopeful for this year's succobb.
Tho girls aro starting right"
Any women student Is eligible to
mombership, and tho only feo charged

28, in tho University Temple.

All students are requested to leave

The; list for the students' directory
will soon1 bo made up and It is de
sired that It be as complete as possi
Tho school authorities of tho University of Nobrnska havo given out a Btntcmtnt
concerning tho books In tho university book store, which Is controlled by them, and
their gcnornl policy in regard to tho store. An enumeration of tho reasons that
mpcllcd them to make tho statement, a list of tho bodkB and an explanation of the
list 1b given below:
'Tho purpose of giving tho public Information concerning tho workings of tho
book store controlled by tho unlverstly is three-fold. In the first placo, tho list of
text books prepared 'by tho members of our faculty is a long and creditable ono.
While American universities do not lay so much emphasis on the professor being nn
author, as tho Germans do, yet after nil much of tho famo of tho unlvorstly depends
upon the production of subccssful texts by members of its teaching staff.
Want Facts Known.
"Tho second object is to glVo tho public Information concerning certain financial
details. Anyone who may bo In possession of information that any of theso books
are sold at retail at a lower prlco elsewhere, will confer a favor by reporting at onco
to tho university authorities.'
"Tho third reason Is that somo students, and patrons have a misconception of
what may bo considered an ethical standard of relations between professor and stu
dent, when tho former's own text Is in use.
"For convenlcnco In considering tho last mentioned plmso of tho subject, tho
texts may bo divided Into thrco classes: class ono Includes thoso printed by tho uni
versity; also thoso of which tho university has secured tho entlro edition. Hero the
professor can have no posslblo Intorcst in any future sales and it Is a matter of In
difference to him financially whether tho books nro used by his students or not. In
class two, tho professor writes his book and disposes of tho copyright to a general
Publisher Fixes Price.
"The publishing house fixes the price of tho book In accordance with general
trade conditions, and tho professor has no Interest In tho ubo of his book except tho
small amount of royalty that ho receives froh his' own students, along with that
from sales clsowhorc. This practice Is universally considered ethical. In our own
state. Dr. Bossoy, termed by Mr. Basset t of Gibbon ns 'tho best beloved man In the
state of Nebraska,' has for muny years used 'Bcssey s Essentials of Botany,' pub
lished by Holt & Co., In his classes. This book Is tho printed synopsis of tho best
that Dr. Bessoy con give to his pupllH. To dlspenso with It would Involve great
waste and loss. As a further example I might mention that Stato Superintendent
Crnbtrcc, when president at Poru, saw no Impropriety In using the Crabtreo Spoiler
In tho training school of tho Peru Normal. The name of tho stato superintendent
Is mentjoncd inasmuch as ho stands very openly and fearlessly for clean book
Permitted to Write,
Under class threo, where tho professor Is his own publisher, some question might
arise ns to tho propriety of tho use of tho professor's book. In this connection I may
mention that two professors had prepared their texts nnd put them on tho markot
before coming to tho University of Nebraska. Permission was glvon thorn to con
tinue this business ns part of tho consideration under which thoy came, to us. Wo
were especially anxious to secure them, ns authors of successful texts. Tho only
stipulation was that our own students should havg tho advantago of a low prlco on
their books. Another professor had his trndo relations and an oxtcnslvo sale estab
lished beforo tho beginning of tho prosnt chancllor's administration, and tho latter
has not seen fit to disturb themo trndo relations as long as tho prlco of tho book
to our students Is less than that to tho general public, and less than that of any
other book that would servo tho purpose.
Adopt New Policy.
"In tho futuro it will bo tho policy of tho university to rcproduco either by
mimeographing or by printing, such minor helps' ns professors may need for class
work. Tho book stOro will endeavor to relievo professors of tho necessity of Invest
ing considerable money in theso class helps with tho expectation of gradually reim
bursing thomsolves through sales. In a word, tho University Is trying to .enrry out
tho wishes of tho legislature by selling books to the students at actual cost, includ
ing a small per cent for express, freight and handling."

NAY BE HELD AT NEBRASKA
Cornhutker Prominence In
Possibly Bring Meet
A Missouri Valloy conforonco cross
country run will bo hold this year if
tho plans of sovoral of tho schools of
tho valloy aro carried out. Consider
ation of tho question Ib being taken up
by tho athlotlo boards of tho schools
of tho organization at tho present
time, and somo decision will probably .
be announced before long.
Dr. Clapp Heads Committee.
Dr. It. Q. Clapp of tho Univorsity of
Nebraska Is ono of tho primo movers
in tho now ovont of athletics and for
that and for tho reason that Nebraska
Is prominent in cross-country work
tho ovont may bo hold In Lincoln.
A committee appointed by tho Mis
souri Valloy conforonco, of which Dr.
Clapp 1b tho chairman, is consulting
tho different schools composing tho
Missouri Valloy conforonco in regard
to possibility of holding tho mooting
during tho fall. Three schools have
boon heard from favorably and it will
bo put up to tho Missouri Valley con
foronco to authorize.
Tho placo of Its occurrence is in
definite. Missouri and Drake have in
vited tho schools to hold tho moot at
Columbia and Des Moines, but Ames
suggested that tho run should bo hold
at Lincoln as Nebraska has done tho
most in cross-country running. Wher
ever it is hold, it will probably bo in
connection with somo of tho important
football games, as this will avoid any
complication in tho matter of dates.

but it was ruled out of order by acting

and every precaution was taken to
'prevent a stuffed vote. Men took an
active interest in the campaign, but
very few girls turned out to tho meet
