NEW AND NOVEL FEATURE8 FOR
THIS YEAR'S EVENT.
Tho plans for cadet camp and com
petitive drill, tho big events of tho
year for the cadets, are now belftg
worked out by tho military depart
ment. Dana Van Dusen, captain of
Company K, has boon given charge
of tho plans for "compot," and it is
his desire to make the event one of
more goneral student interest.
Tho Interest and spirit of the ca
dets, which usually roaches a maxi
mum on that day, will bo further
holghtoned by holding the drill on
May 30, Decoration Day, which will
bo given over entirely to military
affairs, if present plans are success
ful. Cadets to Jojn In Parade.
The Lincoln statue will be un
veiled on that day with impressive
coremonioB, and tho cadet regiment
will have a part in them. There will
bo a parade of militia and Civil War
voterans, and the cadets will march
with them through the city, but not
to the cemotery.
In tho afternoon tho competitive
drill will be hold on tho campus. It
is planned to make tho company drills
faster this year, with Iosb intervals
botwoon thom. Last year tho com
panies wero kept Btationed about tho
campus until it was their time to
"come on," and much time Yipj spent
In marching tho companies on to the
field. This year, by keeping them
just outside the athletic Held, these
delays will bo done away with.
An Added Feature Planned.
To make tho program one of real
military interest an offort is being
mado to bring a machine gun platoon
horo from Fort Crook, which will go
through fancy and regular maneuvers.
Thoro has boon nothing like this seen
In Lincoln before, and a special of
fort will bo mado to induce tho gov
ernment to send the platoon at this
time. A campaign is being carried
on by the government to popularize
military life, and alBO to popularize
university drill, for it is under tho
sponsorship of the government that
drill is conducted In universities. So
It 1b thought that this will bo an op
portunity which tho government will
take advantage of to mako an lmpres
