Many 8tudents Volunteer to Take
Orders for Annual Professors
First to Seek Receipts.
YeBterday was a biiBy day for the
CornhuBker people as the rush for
orderB was even greater than ex
pected. Professor Hinmaii was the
first to hasten across the campus the
moment the campaign wqb on, and
obtained a receipt for one of the an
nuals. Dr. Condra and Dean O. V. 1.
Stout proved close bccoikIb.
A largo number of students ox
pressed their willingness to aid In the
taking of orders, but owing to the
fact that only a few were needed, the
first on the spot in the morning were
chosen. Among thiB number were
Gus Iofgren, "Biddy" .Mead and
"Stub" Hascall, who headed the list in
the numbor of orderB taken.
A Busy Spot.
At the entrance of the chapel, where
the all-Univprsity convocation was
held, there were two tables with a
large sign on each to the effect that
"orders for the CornhuBker are taken
here," and from a general observation,
it could easily have been seen that
the youths in charge had about as
much as they could attend to in mak
ing out the receipts for the students
At the end of the day's campaign,
a count was made of the number of
' Cornhuskors Bold, and It was found
that the number was about five hun
dred. "Tomorrow," in the wordB of
Business Manager Coffee, "we'll make
the number 1,500 or bust."
Copy All In Soon.
Slnco the call for all the copy to be
in by Friday was made, much of the
best material that will appear In the
book was turned in during the time
the order takers were busy on the
campus Some of tho editors still
ha e a few write-upB and Jokes yet to
bo handed In, but special terniB were
made with theso authors, as their
work requires a few days longer in
order that something might happen
which would bo worth comment In
the book. This being tho case, any
other good write-ups, or jokes espe
cially, will be accepted a few days
More than ever beforo tho annual of
this year will portray the truo Ne
braska spirit, and for that reason If
no other, it will bo a book that every
student In tho University ought to
have. Previous editors of tho Corn
husker have been invited In to look
over tho copy and cartoons, and with
out an exception they all agree that
"it is hard to beat."
Special efforts have boon made to
obtain tho matorial that has been of
true interest to tho students of Ne
braska, and, on account of those
things, nothing funny, or of a serious
nature, which has boon of Interest to
tho loyal Cornhuskora this year, haB
been passed without Bomo note.
