it is made, as a matter of convenience
to avoid the necessity of earnest ef

temperance and industry, and his

the Farm, Tuesday.. Nearly the en

thusiasm. ' '
Tho campus has been bombarded.
The Military Ball committee got
busy yesterday and, in the woe small
hours of the morning, hauled a cannon
on to the campus to use as a sign
board. This same cannon, which be
longs to tho United States govern
ment and is a part of the ordnance
outfit of Company F, stood on the
campus all day Tuesday.
A sign tied to tho cannon explained
that it was only placed there as an
advertisement for the big three-dollar
dance. At tho Convocation hour the
old relic was the center of interest
The Daily Nebraskan reporter, who at
tempted to run down some sort of a
romantic life history of the cannon,
was disappointed to find that Chair
man, Newman and Master-of-Core-monies
Van Duson were delinquent in
their research work In this particular
branch of history.
The cannon, it is understood, will
remain on the campus all, day today
and possibly Thursday. It is mounted
onUght field gearing for field service.
One man yesterday throw away all his
cents and remarked, "If Chairman
Knew-Man, what would Van Dusen?"
