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.

Eastern colleges have one more lino of sport to amuso themselves with than the western universities This Is tho Bo-called balloon racing or avia tion. It Is said that it Is extremely ex citing and that loyal supporters of their respective schools exchange large sums on the occasion of a race. Harvard, Yale, Princeton. Pennsyl vania, Cornell, Virginia, Dartmouth, and Williams all hold membership in an Intercollegiate Aeronautical asso ciation The annual meeting of th soclatlon was held a few weekB GOUDS TOJIEJELIIOED 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.'

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 Taylor, managing editor of the Dally Nebraskan, has withdrawn from tho University and will leave for hlB home at YateB Center, Kansas, on Monday morning.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 " Companies Draw for Compet.
