PRIMARY DAY YIELDS JOBS FOR
MANY AND A NEAR ARREST
Primary election day was a fruitful
one for students of the University
Probably two score of thorn wore em
ployed by the various candidates to
distribute campaign material and
others secured jobB as clerkH in Uie
polling booths One fortunate young
man, by acting as clerk for both the
city and county in the Fourth A pro
duct, made $9 OtherB pulled down
from $2 to $7 HO
A rather unpleasant experience was
suffered by a number of members of
one of the fraternities. Those young
men wore employed by the Taft camp
to write certain data on the sidewalks
in chalk It happeiiB that this 1b in
violation of a certain city ordinance
anent the marring and defacing of
public property. Ab a result the stu
dents fell Into the hands of tho police,
but were releaBed on their own recog
nizance to appear Friday morning in
police court. Nothing of consequence,
however, came of the affair, the city
attorney ruling that unless the owners
of property along the sidewalks ob
jected to the writing there waa no
direct violation of the ordinance No
such objection was made and the
youths were released.
Much difficulty was encountered by
many In casting their voteB, since a
large Bhare of the men Btudents of
otlng age had failed to register last
registration day In consequence they
were compelled to secure two free
holders from the precinct In which
they rcBidod, go to the city hall and
there fill out a certificate signed and'
sworn to by the freeholders. An un
usually large number of Btudent votes
were cast and, according to Lincoln
politicians, the University vote will bo
felt In the general result in the city.
MEN PAYING GREATER ATTEN
TION TO THIS FEATURE OF
FORMAL PARTY SEASON.
While there has been a great deal
of talk this year about the extravagant
cost of formal parties, little attention
haB been paid to tho Item of flowers.
More flowers have been Bent during
tho proBont formal season than ever
before. Formerly, evon at fraternity
formals, it waB unusual to see more
than two or three co-eds wearing flow
ers. Now, however, at all formal
partieB at least half of the fair sex
como into the dance hall wearing
bunchos of roses or other favorite
flowerB There Is one custom in par
ticular that seemB to have sprung up
only thiB year, the representatives
asked from other fraternltioB very
often send flowers to tho girl they are
"I felt rather guilty at flrBt," said
one co-ed, "when the men would aBk
what color of flowers I wanted It did
seem rather extravagant to let them
buy them. But the more I thought
about It, the more I thought that It
was a whole lot better for the men
themselvoB to spend their money on
flowerB than on pool games and to
bacco So now, every time I get flow
ers I Just think that I am helping the
men and I accept them with thanks "

TEACHERS jRE WANTED
MANUAL TRAINING INSTRUCTORS
ARE IN DEMAND BY NE
The demand for inon prepared to
teach manual training in high and
grade schools in tho state is greater
than it has ever been before. Tho
recent action of tho N. E. A. in de
claring itself in favor of such voca
tional education has resulted in many
schools installing an equipment for
bonch and lathe work, and the supply
of toacherB will not fill tho demand.
There iB a good chance for engineers
who want to try a few yearB of audi
work at good pay to stop into excep
tionally good positions. Men with
some athletic ability, coupled with
their training in woodwork, should
" have no difficulty in getting positions
as athletic director in some high
school, where they would have charge
of tho manual training department
also. Tho teachers' bureau of tho
University rocolveB calls for teachers
from over tho Btate, and positions are
bolng filled now for next year. Any
men interested should apply ut the
office of the bureau, room 203 Admin
istration building, to look up the proposition.

Mary had a little lamb
'TwaB Persian on nor coat;
She alBo had a mink or two
About a dainty throat;
A bird of paradise, a tern,
And ermine made the hat
That perched at Jaunty anglo
On her coiffure, largely rat.
Her tiny boots were sable topped,
Her gloves wore muakrat, too,
Her muff had heads and tails of
Half tho "critters" in the zoo;
And when she walked abroad I ween
Sho feared no wintry wind.
At keeping warm, 'twas plain to see
She had all nature "skinned."
