A FRESHMAN ASPIRANT IS RUMORED Roger McCuiTaTiT Phi Delt Pledge, May Enter Fight to eHad First Year Students. THIEVES TAKE ADVANTAGE 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- estei'. 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 from her. 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 scriptions has been folt, almost tho 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 likely remain tho rest of tho year.

Tho rushing is expected to bo more strenuous this year than for somo time past, on account of tho unusual number of freshman girls entering in the middle, of the year. Thero will bo no rushing or pledging until tho sec rushing nor pledging until tho sec ond semester.
