MUCH REMAINS TO BE DONE
Subscription Taken in Proportion to
Number of Men Interviewed No
Membership Fee Charged
It gives me great pleasure to have an
opportunity to express my appreciation
of the good work that the Y. M. C. A.
is doing In this university. I enjoyed
especially the meeting that you had at
St. Paul's Church during the winter,
and believe a finer or more manly set
of young fellows could not be found
anywhere. It Is indeed worth a great
deal to the young man coming to the
University to have the privilege of
such associations as the Y. M. C. A.
affords, and the opportunities offered
are of the greatest Importance in the
formation of a student's character.
Chancellor S. A Avery.
The second day of the finance cam
paign of the University Y. M C. A.
closed last evening at the meeting In
the red room. Team leaders reported
good amounts raised on the second
lap of the campaign, although but one
fifth of the University men have been
Interviewed and the time 1b one-half
The meeting last night was the laBt
official gathering of the workers, al
though the canvas will be carried for
ward till the close of the week.
Personal Interviews Necessary.
ThiB afternoon the teams will go
over the list of freshmen again and
reapportion all not yet assigned for
Interviews. This plan tobuUb from a
convlcltion born of experience that the
deciding factor for succeBB Is Inter
viewing all the men. This feeling is
justified by the experiences of all
their daily totals being exactly In pro
portion to the number seen.
No Membership Fee.
This campaign differs from preced
ing ones in that It has no connection
with membership; the membership so
licitation will be given special atten
tion in the near future. However, It
should be noted that no membership
fee will be charged. Any man In school
may Join the Y. M. C. A. this year
without paying the traditional fee.

POLITICAL SITUATION QUIET
Dennis Appoints Campaign Committee
Unrest in Freshman Class To
day Last Day of Filing for
Phil Southwlck, aspiring to preBJ
dentlal honors, pricked the sophomore
political bubble yesterday and an
nounced himself a candidate for the
office. He Is the fifth candidate In tho
field, under the new regulations, and
Is the only representative of his class
to enter thuB far. Whether It Ib a lack
of Interest or too-absorbing Interest In
other things, viz, study, which causes
the light registration In this phaso of
college activities, Is not known, bnt
the fact remains that considering the
records of former years there Is a
slump In the University political
Southwlck, who would assume tho
reins of government for the sopho
mores, Is a Lincoln man and la well
known among hiB claBsmates He was
chairman of the hop committee for hla
class last year, and In other ways has
gained a wldo acquaintance among:
them. He Is a member of the Phi
Kappa P8i fraternity So far as can
be learned there Is no one working in
opposition to him.
No Further Candidates.
Mulligan still remains the only se
nior candidate In the Junior class
there Ib no change In the contest,
Trumble and DlckenBon being the only
men in the field. The Juniors have
shown more Interest In the election
than any other clasB, and as a result
this class is the only one represented
by two men.
Dennis, the only freshman candidate,
is handling his campaign in a thorough
manner and has appointed the follow
ing campaign committee M E Thur
ber, Lincoln, chairman; II. E. Perkins,
Lincoln, treasurer; B. L Taylor, Lin
coln, secretary; McMullen, University
Place; Herold, Plattsmouth; Miliken,
Fremont; KeyB, York; Ackerman, Lin
coln; Underland, Omaha; Elliott
Whether he will have opposition Is
not yet known. Filing closes Friday
evening, and until that time the field.
Is open to all. The feeling is bolng
expressed openly by freshmen, how
ever, that the office should not bo
given without competition. Lincoln Is
represented and backed by Omaha
men to some extent, so the problem
Ib to find a man from another place" on
whom tho different elements may
