Special Convocation to Be Held to
Promote Interest in New
It has now come to pass that the
students of the CniverBlty of Nebras
ka will have something to consider
that will be of great benellt to everv
one concerned The question is do
we want a better college paper, and
do we want our athletics run on a
more thorough financial basis? These
are the problems that are soon to be
soh ed
At present all that will be required
of the students is to watch tho bul
let In boards and to be present at the
special convocation next Thursday
morning; among other things, it
might bo well to watch the Thursday
issue of the "Rag" on this very impor
tant occasion
While tho plan haB not yet been
spread broadcast over the campUB,
and It has been deemed w iso to wait
until Thursday to formally present It,
at the same time it might be possible
to saj a woid about It here Just to let
the students know what it is all about
No doubt ever Btudent wants to see
a good, live 'Rag," one like the i'nl

see Nebraska play more of the great
universities in football every fall Ac

willing to pay an all unlverslt fee?

from two to eleven dollars This, it
will be understood, entitles the stu
dent to all the events throughout the

these conditions, and the senior "'In

merit there can be no doubt and
Thursday, at the special convocation
the students will bo able to hoar a
few worthy opinions expressed on this
point The speakers will be Dean
Beosey, Coach Stiehm, Anan Raymond
and Professor Hunter.
For the pride of the I'niversity, and
for the future welfare of the students
and the alumni, it is urged that every
one concerned take thiB matter under
consideration and do the thing that
