OF THE CROWDED CONDITION
IN THE GIRLS' COAT ROOM
Gub Lofgron, a Bonior engineer of
Ponca, Nebraska, has announced him
self as a candidato for the presidency
of tho fourth year class for this som-
Lofgron has been ono of tho most
prominent mon In his class through
out his university .course, and espec
ially in the engineering college. On
the Cornhusker football squad ho has
held tho position of right end for two
seasons and has played in all the big
games. Besides boing a noted foot
ball man ho has received honor in
other lines, having been chairman of
tho Junior hop and on tho committee
of Boveral other important hops.
It is tho goneral opinion about the
campus that Lofgron will bo a hard
candidate to defeat, accordingly
much interest is boing shown by tho
political dovotees in that class.
Juniors Taking Part.
Seemingly most of tho enthusiasm
. in political linos with regard to tho
jnior claBB came boforo tho examina
tions, and at present as thero aro
about as many candidates in tho field
as tho law will allow, things aro vory
quiot. Tho junior class candidates
aro Will Randall, Jerome Forbos and
Harry Cotton. All these mon have
been prominent in class affairs and
aro well known in tho University. In
view of thoso facts, tho race promises
to bo highly interesting.
In tho sophomore class two candi
dates have announced, Don Wood and
Carl Nagel. For sophomores these
mon have been vory active in tho Uni
versity, and aro therefore well known
in their class. Like tho juniors, tho
sophomores do not seem at present
very politically Inclined.
As for tho freshmen, nothing has
been announced as to who will make
a try 'for tho second semester honor.
However, it is rumored that Roger
McCullough, Phi Delta Theta pledge,
will bo announced in a few days by
somo of his fellow claBsmen.
A considerable amount of petty
thievery has been roported from tho
girls' coat room in tho Library. Art
icles of various descriptions from
lunches to money, havo been takon.
Ono co-ed oven roported that a hund
red pages of paper had beon stolon
This condition is probably aggra
vated by tho over-crowded condition
of the coat room. No locker system
is provided, in fact there is no othor
room of any kind in which tho co-eds
may hang their wraps, oxcopt a vory
small one in the gymnasium.
Because of tho lack of propor fa
cilities for taking care of tholr wraps,
tho majority of University girls aro
forced to wear tholr coats and hatB
to class, as they cannot afTord to run
the risk of losing them.

Strange to say no dearth of sub

entire enrollment subscribing before
tho first Issue was out.
Tho strains of "Cheer! Cheer!" will
in all probability continue to drive In
to distraction tho fastidious professors
of tho upper regions of University
building for tho roBt of tho semester.
Tho frQshmon laws wore changed at
tho beginning of tho semester from a
room on tho second floor to room 304
on tho third floor and there they will

With the present enrollment tho room
is just filled to a comfortable capacity
as far as seating facilities go and un

curs no changes will be made. Ac
cording to tho registrar, If any aro

strenuous this year than for somo

number of freshman girls entering in
