New Friends Sign the
According to a long-established cus
tom, the Daily Nebraskan, or "Rag," as
it has come to be called, placed a
number of tables about the different
points of registration, and opened for
business early yesterday morning. The
subscriptions rolled In quite rapidly

Old students are eager to renew
their subscriptions, knowing that it is
almost impossible to get through
school without its help. The fresh
men, unaccustomed to so large a
school and the necessity of a daily
paper to keep track of events, are
slower in handing in their names.
The tables will be maintained dur
ing the remaining days of registration,
and non-Bubscrlber8 are advised to
hand in their names at once. If ex
penses are heavy and cash is a little
tight juBt now, simply sign one of the
blank cards handed you and pay when
your ship comes in.

Mrs. Raymond, However, Has Plenty
of Room for More Aspirants
for Vocal Honors.
Tho University choruB, under the
leadership of Mrs. Raymond, will again
this year offer a plan of partial ex
emption for the members of the three
upper classes from military drill aB
well as a plan whereby freshmen may
'Ikev've undertake the work in addi
tion to military drill. Tho chorus of
fers opportunity for musical training
that Is pronounced by those who have
been active In It to be Interesting and
The University chorus has for paBt
years been a very active feature in
the school life of Nebraska. Last year
the BingerB gave well-attended con
certs at Thanksgiving and Christmas
times, before the Peace meeting at St.
Paul's church and before the Matinee
Musical Club, singing "Lohengrin" be
fore the latter organization and pre
senting "Hiawatha" as the final num
ber of the year.
Owing to the conflict between drill
and chorus work tho following plan
has been adopted:
1. A limited number of men may
partially Bubstituto chorus for drill,
meeting with the former at 5 o'clock
p. m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, and
Fridays, and taking military drill the
same hours on Tuesdays and Thurs
days. Those adopting this plan will
receivo for the chorus work one hour
credit and from tho military depart
ment ono-half hour credit.
2. For thoso wishing to take tho
full military drill and who would llko
also to take the chorus work, a special
rehearsal has been arranged for men
only on Monday evenings at 7 o'clock
This rehearsal lasts one hour and Is a
substitute for tho 5 o'clock rehearsals
on Monday and Wednesday. It 1b open
to all men who may for any reason
find it more convenient to come at
this time rather than on Monday and
Wednesday at 5 o'clock. Thla plan
gives one hour credit for drill and ono
hour credit for chorus.
Further information on the subject
of drill chorus may be Bocured from
Mrs, Raymond in her office at tho
Temple Music Hall between 2 and 4
o'clock any day this week.
