GREAT MILITARY BALL
THE SECOND ANNUAL SOLDIERS'
PROM PROVES TO BE A
Tomorrow evening the baggage
men, ticket agents and, In fact, the
entire passenger departments of the
railroads which are fortunate enough
to run Into Lincoln will bo very busy.
During the next thirteen days the
University of Nebraska will bo hero
in a body, not In spirit; in fact, even
a great many of the faculty intend to
take advantage of the breathing spell
and to obliterate from their mlndB
visions of roll books and sleepy coun
tenances. Tho Lincoln sudents are planning
many hops, feeds, bridge parties, and
Now Year's watches, and several fra
ternities Intend to hold Informal ban
quets. Many Lincoln folks who go to
the Eastern schools will come home
for tho holidays, so that the Boclal
festivities n tho city will assume
quite an auspicious air.
Practically all students will take ad
vantage of tho chance to go homo;
to many who live some distance away
the sight of "home and mother" will
Indeed be a welcome one.
To others, regardless of the location
of their home, the sight of "homo and
father" will not be so pleasant. For
the sake of clearness, it might bo
well to state that the students here
referred to are those who have been
preceded by Httlo Xmas notices sent
out over so often by Professor Eng-
borg. To such wo wish a Happy New
Year and extend a hearty Invitation
to visit us next year.
Next Monday the red neckties, nail
fllos, bookmarks, embroidered hat
pin holders, brass pen trays, and other
such atrocities will bo given and re
ceived with thanks and good wishes;
during the ensuing week society will
reign supremo, and on the following
Monday those who have survived the
strenuous period will return to the
source of knowledge to rest up.
So here's to vacation! Get your
studies one day more and this cruel
war wilst be o'er.

party in honor of the Junior girls last
Saturday evening. Quite naturally,
every girl was Invited.
Tho Military Ball haB been pro
nounced a success by all who attend
ed. It was a gay affair. Whllo there
has been some adverse comment-coming
chiefly from non-commissioned
officers and others, who would have
attended had they owned dross suits,
tho general opinion seems to bo that
It was not only a formal ball, but a
Tho new uniforms of the cadotB, the
silken gowns of tho girls, tho military
band, Hagehslck's orchestra, tho
novel grand march, and tho decora
tions all played their part in making
It an enjoyable event. The band and
orchestra were seated bohind a great
white gate draped at either side with
an Immense flag. In tho contor Old
Glory was crossed by tho rogtmontal
standard of scarlet and gold. The
grand march was effected so that all
of tho officers with sabres drawn and
held at an angle formed an archod
way through which tho guests
marched. Tho excellent band music
was a real feature of tho ovoning.
Each of tho sixteen dances was
dedicated to a sponsor as follows: U.
of N. Cadets, Mrs. H. E. Yates; Regi
ment, Miss Bertha Roach; Quarter
master's Department, Miss Katherino
