The meeting is an open ono and the

There Is an organlgatlon at Nebras
ka known as the Iron Sphinx, and last
Saturday evening the members gavo
a formal party. This fact is perhaps
well known to all the University stu
dents, but a few things that happened
at that party are not so well known.
It seems that the chairman of that
formal had just footed up tho bills and
was well satisfied that he could make
out In good shape when a most unex
pected bill came to his ateatlon.
If any one has over been in tho Lin
coln hotel they havo no doubt noticed
that there aro several brasB cuspidors
on the first and second floors of that
well known placo. There is also some
very beautiful fine linen and a num
ber of very beautiful vases on the ta
bles In tho "ordinary," all of which
are very atractivo to tho eye. While
there had been no definite statement
made as to whether or not the Iron
Sphinx "or any part thereof" laid
hands on any of these beautiful things
the statement has been mado that
while the danco was going merrily on,
some of the above said effects turned
It was on this account that the man
ager of tho Lincoln hotel was forced
to send tho chairman of tho ball an
unexpected bill for $26.85 for cuspi
dors, vase's and table linen which
were alleged to havo been there beforo
the danco started and were missing
after its close.

Sovoral rumors havo boon going tho
rounds of tho campus latoly among
the student-cadots concerning tho an
nual spring encampmont. Ono of thoso
is to tho effect that tho camp will bo
held at tho state fair grounds, with
both farm and campus cadetB in at
tendance. T ohoht8rthloirrKittlo-bV
tendance. Tho othdr Is that tho ca
detB will go to tho now government
rango at Plattsmouth. Still anothor
side of the question presents itaolf
when Beatrlco is considered.
These reports have gained quite a
hold upon tho cadets and yot thoro
has boon no ofllcial action on tho mat
tor. Last spring the camp was hold at
Beatrlco on tho old Chautauqua
grounds. This camp was very satis
factory. Both to tho cadots and to tho
offlpors In charge Tho ground was
shady, dry even after rains, and as
sanitary a placo for camping as ono
could wish. Tho cadets thoroughly on
joyed thomsolvos, and they woro treat
ed so well by tho cltlzons that tho
general sentiment among thorn favors
Beatrlco for tho coming camp.
Finds Fewer Backers.
Tho plan of going to tho fair ground
does not havo so many backors. Tho
rumor has been that tho two regi
ments of farm and campus cadots aroj
to carry on tholr rogular class work.l
Capt. aYtcs suld there was no truth!
in tho various reports slnco nothing!
had been decided as In regard tol
camp. He said further, that tho fair
grounds idea was not a good ono be
cause It would bo lmposslblo to com
bine the daily routine of camp with
class work. Besides, the maneuvering
of tho troops would bo hindered by '
lack of sultablo ground.
Colonol Smith substantiated tho
commandant by denying that thero
was any plauBlblo ground for tho ru
mor. Ho said that tho matter had boon
talked oyer, but that nothing had been
Cadets Like Range.
As to tho roport that tho camp
might bo hold at Plattsmouth, tho
samo denials by tho comamdnant and
Colonol Smith hold good. No placo!
has been considered further than tho
others. Some of tho cadots aro
pleased with tho idea of camping at
tho range. It has recently boon locat
ed there, having been moved from
Ashland, and is up-to-date In overy re
spect. Tho ono objection to tho camp
at Beatrlco would bo mot thoro, for
at Beatrlco thero Is no rango. How
ever, loss Is known of tho camping
grounds and facilities offered as com
pared with those of Beatrice.
It lies between tho novelty of tho
Plattsmouth camp and the good treat
ment of that at Beatrice, as tho cadets
seo it. However, thero is no Immediate
likelihood of tho question being settled
since tho date, has not yot been set
and thero aro many details to be
worked out before a final decision.
