"University of Nebraska debaters on
December 12 were awarded another
double victory duplicating that of

Illinois and Wisconsin twenty of the
twenty-four judges in the eight debates
of the last four years voting for Ne
braska's representatives. . . ."
".... Fuller knowledge of the sub
ject, more careful use of evidence,
greater clarity, concentrated 'fire and
skill in refutation and rebuttal these
were the considerations that won the
votes of the judges lawyers, and pro
fessors of law, political science, and
". . The work of this year pre
sented' the job of training many new
men. Only four former team and
seminary members were in the group
of sixteen. Against Iowa and Minne
sota they met the teams which have
caused Nebraska more trouble in the
matter of judges' decisions since she
pulled into bigger company in 1901-02."
In further pages, news notes of in
terest were gien. It was especially
mentioned that three of Nebraska's
Rhodes scholars have been connected

OFFICERS GIVE ANNUAL
MILITARY BALL TONIGHT
Few Ttickets May be Obtained This
Morning Officers in Uniform Will
Have First Places In Grand March.
Owing to the recent ruling affecting
dancing, and permitting the tango and
other dances, the tickets for the mil
itary hall have sold like the proverbial
hot-cakes for the last two days. How
ever, there may be some left this

Comes as a Surprise
To Many Students
Although a number of students felt
that the authoritative atmosphere was
J becoming more favorable to the Intro
Iduction of the newer dances, the an
i nouncement that the ban had been re
moved, came as a surprise to the ma
jority. Knowledge of the new ruling
furnished the topic for much conversa
tion and discussion about school. The
impression gathered from Btudent com
ment is that they receive the long
desired liberties favorably and with
Student sentiment seems to bo to
live up to the standard now desired
in conformity to the rules, but owing
to the many varities of tango and
other new dances that have been in
troduced here, many seem at a loss
to know just what varities will be ap
proved. NOON GETS GOOD APPOINTMENT
