Engineers, for Whom $2,000 of It Was
Provided, Have Thus Far
Fought Shy.
The student loan fund which was
ready for disbursement several months
ago, is still lying idle It is not due,
however, to a scarcity of needy stu
dents. The fund consists of (hreo
donations. $1,000 each, made by J. R.
Webster. Omaha; Dr. J. A L Wad
dell, Kansas City, and W Whltmoro.
Valley Two of the donors designated
that their contributions should be
loaned only to engineering students
The third provided that only the in
terest of $2,000 should be loaned So
as It stands, there is only $50 per
year which can be loaned outside the
engineering department. It is a pe
culiar circumstance that engineering
studentB are the only ones who have
not applied for the money
One Prefers Hunger.
I'rofeBsor Chatburn of the applied
mechanics department said students
from the law and the arts colleges
havo applied, but engineering students
fight shy of it. "I know plenty of
needy fellows among thorn, one in
particular who I am sure sometimes
goes actually hungry, but when urged
to take out a loan ho-rcpHcs that h I
has a. Job for the summer and will see
if he can not scrape through until
school is out," said the professor
The engineering students will do
anything to get through, wait tables,
scrub floors or beat carpets As long
as they can get along without the
fund, the committee wishes it was in
shape so that It could be placed In
the hands of other students We pre
fer to put it out to some one who is
nearly through and jiiBt needs a little
more to finish up on The fund is In
school warrants and paving bonds,
where it could be instantly converted
into cash.
The $50 interest is loaned to a the
ological student

KOSMET KLUB ALREADY PLAN
NING FOR NEXT YEAfc'8 MEM
BERSHIP AND OPERA.
Tho following is a statement made
by one of tho members of tho Kosmet
Klub, in order that tho appreciation
of that organization might bo shown
directly to tho studentB for their sup
port and enthusiasm In tho progress
so far made. It also serves as a re
minder to all NebraBkans that another
opera 1b wanted
"Owing to the fact that 'Tho Diplo
mat,' presented by the Kosmet Klub,
will bo pulled off tonight, wo will
have no further chance to toll you"
anything more about it after this is
sue of the "Rag.' Of course, after tho
2fjj3nera is over and everyone has gone
P4i6Tfio well satisfied with the evening s
race, which win pe hold at Kansas
City this summer. Both balloons and
gliders from the various colleges will
participate. Ex.
Managing Editor of Daily Nebraskan
Going to Mexico.
Red-heads Progressive.
Another chapter haB boon added to
Jambda Tau Rho, tho "redhead" fra
ternity. Tho lateBt addition is at tho
University of Minnesota. There are
four chapters with a membership of
more than fifty. Ex.
Earle II. Taylor, managing editor of
the Dally Nebraskan, has withdrawn
from tho University and will leave for
hlB home at YateB Center, Kansas, on
Monday morning. After a brief vaca
tion he will assume a position in the
publication department of tho North
American Land and Investment Co.,
a concern handling Mexican lands
In all probability Fred McConnell,
associate editor for the past two se
mesters, will succeed Taylor as man
aging editor
Pel U's to Build.
Plans for tho erection of a now $40,
000 Psl UpBilon lodge are now under
way at Wisconsin. Tho house will be
completed by next Christmas.
Other 8chools Interested.
That other schools and universities
are interested In, and approving Ne
braska's Bocial customs; Its collego
festivals, fete days and traditional
"Btunts," are evidenced by a number
of letters received lately by tho ad
visor to women. Theso letters were
from neighboring universities and col
leges asking Information about Ne
braska's own peculiar "fetes."
and plans were made for tho nextT)lg entertainment, tho sketch will deserve
a short after-word, but all will agree
that it is no more than right
"What we wanted to hear at this
time is that tho Kosmet Klub is hero
to stay. While planB were being laid
for the formation and establishment
of this organization there were times
when success looked far away, and
tho outcome most gloomy. But in
vlow of the fact that evory student in
the University of Nebraska lias shown
so much interest in what has already
been done, there 1b no doubt that tho
Klub will grow more rapidly than
was formerly expected.
"What we want now Is another
opera written by a loyal Nebraskan.
It will be remembered that anyono
presenting tho proper sketch will re
ceive $75 as a compensation for his
labor; therefore wo hope someone
will be induced to hand ono in that
will be suitable, not later than next
October "
