Tho great discovery was disclosed
at a mammoth mass meeting held
Tuesday afternoon on tho campus.
Only girls were admitted and after
tho last co-ed had entered tho doors
were bolted and barred to prevont the
entrance of the masculine olement at
However, tho world famed suffrag
otte reporters of tho Daily Nobraskan
were on the scene and so the glad
news is out in spite of the precautions
taken to insure secrecy.
A number of plans for taking advan
tage of this great opportunity at the
earliest possible time wero discussed.
Miss suggested that a meeting
of University , men bo called to gather
in the auditorium just before tho be
ginning of tho leap-year eighteen
days from today.
Here all tho co-eds would appear
and, standing in tho balcony, make a
selection, naming the lucky one. Then
a porter would come in and remove
Graft! Displeasure! Unpopularity!
Three words tell the story of condi
tions in the military circles at Ne
braska University. Officers of tho ca
det regiment, who told their men to
be sure to purchase shoes at a cer
tain "best" store, are longing for
peace and some relenting of their ac
tions. The. shoe situation is tho key to tho
trouble. "Wo don't want to bo told
where to buy our stuff and then get
rpuped," said one disgruntled fresh
man last night to a Nebraskan re
porter. "Nolhln' against the military
authorities Jt ain't Yates' fault
either," he went on, "but somo of
those officers go juBt too far."
The freshman stated that tho officer
in command of his company had read
an order before the company one
" night at drill hour telling them that

It seems that a pair of tan shoes pur

officer is being severely criticised.

all would end happily.
Object to Plan.
Serious objections to this plan wero
raised by Miss Tailor, who stated that
In her opinion very few of tho strong
er sex would still bo "unspiked" at the
late hour of eloven-thirty on Leap
Year's Eve, and that in her opinion
very few of tho fair ones who did not
have a lirm grip on her choice at the
moment tho clopk strikes, would have
any show at all. After much discus
sion, these objections prevuilcd and
the plan finally decided upon was
"The best possible way to do this,
ut least in my opinion," said Miss
Ritchell, "would bo for each girl to

These should be mulled to tho pro
spective victims und a personal visit
made early on the morning of the first
day of tho glorious leap year."
After a hot contest, tho second plan
was adopted by a voto of 789 to 7G7,
and a committeq was appointed to soe

A plan to place a lunch room in the

Chancellor Avery said that tho Re
