BIG PREPARATIONS GOING ON
Committees Work Hard Sending
Letters and Making Ready.
Fussy Fixings for Fair
Examinations are over. Sorority
rushing Is now a thing of the past;
co-eds but silently await the outcome.
Registration 1b an accomplished fact
and we have parted from our money
with the universal resolve that "next
semester we are going to Btudy and
excuses will no longer be the night
mare they have been."
With the passing of these Important
eventB, however, comes the ever-present
and ever-prevalent desire to "turn
our attention to the next thing of real
Importance." What is it? Univer
sity society with one accord has
turned its eyes upon the coming
February 22 as a day of Importance
is not merely the birthday anniver
sary of a certain historica 1 char
acter possessing cherry tree fame, but
it now assumes a new and nearer
significance, it is the date upon which
will be held the University of Ne
braska's greatest social function.
Other events when viewed by them
selves are all well enough, but when
compared with tho big they become
luminaries of less importance and the
Junior-Senior Prom, clearly shines
forth aB a star of the greater magni
tude. There are three main reasons for
this greatness: First. The auditorium
floor Is large enough to accommodate
both upper classmen and alumni. Sec
ond. Because the number accommo
dated and the $4.00 price of ticket put at
committee's disposal a fund two to
three times as much capital as has any
previous Prom committee had. Third
Because every dollar of the funds will
bo spent to make the Prom the suc
cess that It Is sure to be.
Special features are: A scheme of
decorations by an expert, favors that
are sure to make a hit, a good bunch
of "unique" features which the com
mittee will not dovulge, and a floor
that wll be the equal of any in the
city. Tho Commercial Club and the
committee are spending between $60
and $75 in planing, leveling and wax
ing the floor.
The largest number of alumni that
ever attended a University dance will
be at the big 1913 Prom. The Omaha
alumni have taken the lead by making
reservations and inquiries are coming
from many other places. The fact that
tho dance is to be held on Saturday

ment. Dr. Maxey brought tho wholo

SORORITY RUSHING OVER
Final Parties Saturday Close 8eason.
Much Dissatisfaction Over
First Bemester sorority rushing
closed Saturday with final parties
given by many. Pledging will not oc
cur until the final reports are all in
which will not be before February !
at the earliest.
Much dissatisfaction has been ex
pressed throughout the whole period
of rushing over the inefficiency of tho
new rules from which bo much was
expected. Both the freshmen girls
and tho members of the various so
rorities are worn out with continual
entertaining and being entertained.
Much complaint is made that the
freshmen have had their heads turned
and that in general they are as far
back in their studies aB they would
have been with pledging coming after

DECISIVE SCORES IN EACH CASE
Carrier Plays 8teady Easy Game
Which Promises Him Position
on Missouri Valley Haskell
Does Fast Work.
On Friday and Saturday of laBt week
the home team won Its first two offi
cial games in tho northern half of
the Missouri Valley conference. Fri
day Nebraska beat Drake by tho ecoro
of 32 to 7 and Saturday by tho score
of 24 to 15.
The two victories coming as they do
after the defeat at tho hands of Min
nesota aro a source of pleasuro to tho
followers of the game. After the loss
of Hiltner, Frank and GibBon, laBt
year's stars, It was feared that Stlehm
would have difficulty in building up
another chaplonshlp team. But tho
two easy victories over Drake show
that again the name Nebraska will be
dreaded by our sister institutions.
Within two minutes alter the start
of play Friday, Stryker tossed the ball
Into the basket from the center of the
floor and an Instant later Haskell
brought the audience to its fet by a
duplicate Aside from the spectacular
long shots by Nebraska the game was
slow and uninteresting. Drake's play
ing being especially poor. The visitors
seemed to be rattled and persisted In
passing tho ball Into Nebraska's hands
or throwing it away. During tho sec
ond half Drake did not make a goal
from tho field and Nebraska Indulged
In a brisk game of hide and Beek.
Determined not to be again humili
ated tho visitors came back Saturday
and gave tho home boys an Interest
ing tussle. Captain King of Drake
especially played a hard game. Ills
splendid dribbling received consider
able applause. Time and again when
unable to find a teammate free he
would dash across the floor dodging
several players, and shoot for the bas
ket. For Nebraska, Captain Carrier
was tho star, securing four field goals.
Stryker again easily outplayed his op
ponent. In fact he prevented Colville
from getting a Blnglo goal in either
game but in tho second ho and Page
fought each other hard, each Becurlng
Drake is again met, this time on her
own floor at Dea Moines on Febraury
19 and 20. By that time developments
may have appeared which will give
