CONCERT ON CAMPUS
PROVES BIG SUCCESS
MORE THAN FOUR HUNDRED STU
DENTS ENJOY AFFAIR.
'NEBRASKA" SANG AT THE CLOSEIflG
Benches, Steps and Other Choice
Spots Filled by Listeners
The band concert on the campus
last night was a success and a little
more. A largo crowd of -students oc
cupied all the benches, steps, and a
considerable portion of the campus,
and all seemed to be enjoying the
music as well as the other diversions
offered by the time and place.
The concert began at very nearly
the appointed hour and lasted until
,eight o'clock. The band occupied a
pobitlon In the center of the campus
south of Unl Hall. A number of pop
ular selections were rendered, the
concert closing with the rousing
strains of the Nebraska song, the stu
dents adding their voices to the band
Weather is Ideal.
The fate that presides over the dis
tribution of weather was kind indeed
for the evening was a perfect one,
warm and with just the right sort of
One or two hardened grinds studied
in tiie library throughout the concert,
but it is safe to say that more than
four hundred students took advantage
of the opportunity o enjoy a well spent
hour out of doors.
LAW "TANK'lEEDEO FIXING
AT LEAST THAT'S WHAT THE
PLUMBERS WERE TOLD
Two of Lincoln's plumbers are look
ing for the law student that played a
practical joke on them. Two men,
cairying monkey-wrenches and solder
ing out tits, appeared at Dean Hast
ing's ofllce yesterday.
Where is the tank up in the law
school that has sprung a leak?" asked
The dean was bewildered.
There is no tank hero," he an
swered. "Well, we got a telephone message
saying that a tank needed fixing," as
serted the persistent plumber.
Therefore, Dean Hastings called up
Superintendent C'howins and aBked
him if he had ordered a tank llxed.
The superintendent disclaimed all
knowledge of tanks of any kind, espe
cially for the law school.
' It must have been a joke," sug
gested the dean.
"It's no joke for us," said the plumb
ers as they wrathfully departed.
"We'd like to meet the fellow that

THE "DIPLOMAT-TOMORROW NIGHT--AT THE OLIVER
ANONYMOUS WRITER TAKES
RAP AT MAN WHO WROTE
lie following is an anonymous reply
to the article which recently appeared
under the head, "Another for the Suf
fragettes." The writer wishes it
known that ho Is of the male persua
sion, in order that the sentiment in
volved in the writing may not seem
This reply is one of a number that
rrcent articles in the "Rag" have
evoked, and regardless of the just
ness of either side, the very fact that
replies are prevalent, shows that
some interest Is being taken in what
the Nebraskan has to offer.
"The author of 'Another for the Suf
fragettes' must either be a man of a
voracious appetite or a despairing an
ti-woman suffragist, probably the lat
ter. Those who have the desire to
maintain the honor of the men of
the University at least hope that his
outbreak of enthusiasm for the preser
vation of IiIb own sex and downtrod
den brethren was due to Home loftier
motive than to satisfy his own appe
tite. "It is true that the cafeteria was
intended primarily for men of the Y
M. C A., or of the University, but no
body would say that under our sys
teni of co-education men should be
specially privileged. Those in author
it y do not fail to see the injustice of
such discrimination and they try to
give the same treatment to all regard
less of sex. All conditions could not
be foreseen when the idea of a Uni
versity cafeteria originated, and now
that the situation is appreciated it
should be dealt with justly and in ac
cordance with our democratic regula
tions. "The cafeteria was established by
state funds, to which the parents of
the women of the University contrib
uted perhaps in the same way as the
parents of the men students"
CO-EOS LOOK ASKANCE
HOW TO VOTE BY AUSTRALIAN
BALLOT SYSTEM BOTHER
The new Australian ballot system
which will be used today for the first
time in the election for the executive
council of the (Jlrls Club, is puzzling
nuny of the co-edB.
"I want to vote tomorrow," said one
co-ed yesterday, "but I am afraid of
that new system. I hear you have to
write your names on the ballot. If
I signed my ballot and then they
found out afterwards that I hadn't
pa4d my dues, I'd have all that trouble
for nothing. I like the old way best."
"That Isn't the only trouble, either,"
answered another. "I hear those hor
rid men are going to hang around the
polls and make fun of us while wo
are voting, for being suffragettes. The
new system may turn out all right,
but I have my doubts."
Notice to Girls.
All orders for lunches for the Girls'
Club picnic, which will bo held Satur
day, muBt be In to Manager Orr of
the cafeteria before Friday morning

MEANS A STEP FORWARD
STUDENT DRAMATICS WILL
GIVEN IMPETUS BY "THE
The production by the KoBinet Klub
of "The Diplomat" inakeB a distinct
advance In University of Nebraska
dramatics. For the first time in the
history of the University a musical
comedy will be Btaged by students
Previous plays have as often as not
been unsulted to student acting, too
often they have been heavy, out of
date, slow and tiresome Only the
fact that th audience was composed
of the friends of the performers has
made some of them tolerable at all.
The present production aims to avoid
these difficulties. Intensely modern,
it reflects the taste ofNUoday's theater
going public. With music of the catch
iest variety, a lively chorus of pretty
girls, a leading lady who can really
sing, and a host of characters so var
ied that the taste of everyone must be
satlslied, it bids fair to be a great suc
cess. The play is laid in a tiny Turkish
principality, according to the tradi
tions of comic opera, and of course,
it haB a careless ruler, a charming
princess, a bewitching widow, army
oflicers, Turkish guardsmen, ladles in
waiting and Americans. To tell how
the country becomes involved in dif
ficulties, and how the bold American
youth, by showing the way out of
them, wins the hand of the princess,
would be to give the story away.
Not only is this show unprecedented
in kind, but it also differs from its
.predecessors in that it was written
right here, even to the music, new and
original. It is to be hoped that this
performance will be only the begin
ning of greater activity in this work
Success to it.
Mrs Raymond to Speak.
Mrs. Raymond will Bpeak today at
r o'clock in the Y W. C. A. rooms on

HARSH HTFJOR BURGLAR
FOUR DISTINCT ATTEMPTS TO
PRACTICE MEET WIHT
The cadet bugle corps was Ill-fated
last evening; after making four sep
arate and distinct attempts to prac
tice its musical arts It finally gave up
in despair and retired to the conflneB
of tho armory.
Tho first rebuff was mot near the
armory, where the quartermaster's de
partment objected to the racket; un
daunted they repaired to a spot near
Nebraska Hall, only to bo wafted
away by Dean Bessey, who waa In
volved In a delicate plant operation.
Their third attempt was made In the
vicinity of the shops, where their
strains interfered with the practice of
the band; thoroughly discouraged
they hid behind tho engineering build
ing only to receive tho curses of tho
Inmates of that structure.
Not believing in another trial they
returned to their starting place and
declared a strike.

MORE PLANSJOR CAMP
SPECIAL TRAIN WILL LEAVE FOR

ment of the university cadets have
been arranged except a few minor de
tails. The special train will leave
over the Burlington for Crete about 1
o'clock Tuesday afternoon, May 14.
First mess will be served Tuesday
evening after tho tents are all pitched.
The Chautauqua grounds are so situ
ated that it will be poBsiblo to keep
tho entire regiment in one street. This
is a welcome change from tho condi
tion last year, when tho battalions
wore compelled to separate on account
of the crowded quarters.
Those who have seen the camp
grounds are enthusiastic over tho
choice. The many trees will provide
plenty of shade, and the proximity of
the Blue river promises aquatic diver
sions. A big military ball is planned
for Ftlday night. Camp will be
