Elections at tho State University,
held Tuesday morning for tho pur
pose of choosing football and basket
ball captains for the coming year, re
sulted In a tio vote in tho former caBe
and tho choice of Sam Currier in tho
Dewey Harmon and ErneBt Erank
were the opposing candidates in the
field for the football captaincy. Tho
vote stood four to four, only eight of
the sixteen men eligiblo to voto be
ing present. This was tho second
football election this year, tho one laBt
fall when "Jerry" Warner was chosen
to lead tho Cornhuskers for tho sea
son of 1913, having been rendered
old by tho latter'B leaving school.
May Resort to Proxy.
Six of last fall's letter men are now
out of school (Jibson, Shonka, Elliott,
(hauner, Warner and Potter. The
rules roquiro a majority of the men
eligible to vote to elect. Sixteen men
received letters last fall and became
eligible. With six out of school and
four standing pat for either candidate
tho required nino votes can not be
obtained except by proxy.
-LoXgreiL-amLSwiuiaQii were ab&ejiU
from tho meeting on Tuesday, tho
latter boing sick with tho mumps.
For whom the voteB of Uicbo two men
will go is, of course, not certain, al
though they are thought to favor
Frank. Even with both of their votes,
however, the latter would still require
tho support of some of tho others.
Dr. Clapp has called a second meet
ing of tho team men eligible to ote
for April 17.
Tho election of Sam Carrier to head
Nebraska's basketball team was unan
imous. Not the First Deadlock.
This la not tho first deadlock which
has occurred in the election of Ne
braska's football captains. The last
one occurred when "Buck" Beltzer
was elected as a compromise candi
date. This former fight was carried
on with tho T. N. E. affiliation as an
issue and disrupted tho team to such
an extent that, with excellent mater
ial, Colo and Beltzer had tho poorest
team of years tho next season.
To prevent any auch friction from
occurring again, tho board enforced a
rulo that the football team should
elect its captain at a meeting to bo
held Immediately after tho giving out
of Initials or olso that It Bhould pasa
over to tho board. This rulo can
hardly apply to UiIb cfltao, aa It did
not take Into consideration tho with
drawal of a captain from school. It Is
probable, however, that If a deadlock
appears to bo certain after another
voto, tho athletic board will take over
tho election.

Work on tho 12 inch equatorial tele
scope being made by students In the
Mechanical Engineering department Ib
being rapidly pushed forward Over
half of tho parts have been com
pleted. It has been five years since
the planFWoro llfBt made, Tnost -of
that time having been consumed in
making the patteriiB. It will not re
quire nearly that length of time to
finish tho remaining partB. Tho tele
scope, If made by contract, would cost
$11,.')00 It will require considerable
room and will demand a new observatory.
Special machlno tools had to be con
structed and changes made In old ma
chines to meet the demands of the
work required on tho telescope. Ono
of the most Important of these, though
not made primarily for work on tho
telescope, is a graduating engine de
signed and constructed by W. S.
Payne of tho Department of Mechan
ical Engineering. This Ib a machlno
for graduating metal dlscB. It can bo
adjusted so as to divide a circle Into
parts aB small as five minutes. It Is
tho result of soveral years of effort at
odd times on tho part of Mr. Payne,
and though operating successfully, It
Is not yet perfected to the extent do
Blred by him. The Inventor Intends
to apply it to tho graduation of linear
scales as well as to circular gradua
tions. Tho machine Is constructed on
an entirely different plan than thoae
employed by tho manufacturers of
surveying and similar instruments.
