Make Up Program.
Approximately five hundred frat
men assembled in the Lindell Hotel
banquet room last Saturday evening
to moke their annual "Pan-Hellenic"
Banquet a success. After a commond
ablo feed, Dr. Brvvin H. Barbour as
toastmaster introduced in turn the
following speakers: Fred D. Cornell,
Chancellor Avery, Lieutenant Gov
ernor 8. R. McKelvie, Ralph W. Gar
rett and John J. Ledwlth. The two
-bull doge, the important features of
the event, were presented to tho win
ning fraternities by Dr. Edwin Maxey.
Tho Beta Theta Pi fraternity was
awarded the first dog because they had
tho largest individual attendance. In
addition to their active chapter, forty
two alumni were present. The Sigma
Nu fraternity having had a 66 per
cent attendance of resident alumni,
was awarded tho Becond dog.
The scone in the ounquet room was
one of hilarity and unquestionable en
Joyment, Songs and frat yells were
constantly in order and harmonized
fairly well with tho orchestra. After
eight o'clock everyono seemed willing
to settle down for the program. Fred
Cornell handled in a humorous man
ner, "Some Bull" (dogs); S. R. Mc
Kelvie told about "Puttin1 on Dog";
Ralph Garrett emphasized seriously,
"You Gotta Quit Kickin' My Dog
Around," and John J. Ledwith, after
having hoard the previous speakers,
could hardry have spoken on anything
except "Well, I'll Bo Dog-goned."
Chancellor Avery dealt with "Frats
and Dogs" by relating some of his
numerous experiences. Dr. Maxey,
the noted humorist, entertained the
crowd during tho last part of tho pro
gram. The Beta Theta Pi quartet, com
posed of Bob Thompson, Kenneth
Wherry, Scrub. , vHanson and Art Mil
ler, was the music feature of tho even
ing. Orchestra music was a pleasing
part of tho program until the speaking

Tho Junior Promenade was a de

off. The committee in. charge was:
Win, Bauman, chairman; Russell

tho familiar ''old guard" were in. evi

When the business-management planned a five
column paper or rather planned how to finance a
larger paper, it was found necessary to have a paid
circulation of not less than 1400 to properly conduct
a five-column paper. Taking last semester s circula
tion figures as a basis, it was planned to make a
campaign for 1500 new subscriptions as shown above.
It was thought that one out of every three stu
dents would subscribe for the Daily Nebraskan dur
ing registration week and it has been very gratifying
to the new business-management to secure 642 out
of a total registration of 2074 or-in the ratio of
1 to 3.2.
No effort was made to canvass the members of
the faculty as it was thought they were too busy
during the days of registration and examination.
A systematic canvass will be made during the next
The regents of the university have subscribed for a net 225 Daily Nebras
kans to be sent to a list of 225 high schools in the state.
Basing the Daily Nebraskan circulation among the alumni of the past se
mester it was thought that with a special mail-subscription campaign 150 could be
secured. This is placing the figure as very conservative.
The list of 125 noted above is not a paid list, as it is made up of exchanges,
copies for files, copies sent complimentary to foreign advertisers, for local distri
bution among the advertisers, copies for use of reporters, etc.
Summing up the results of the campaign it is found that only a small effort
will be necessary to complete the work of making the Daily Nebraskan a five
column paper with a circulation which will compare favorably with the circulation
of other college dailies.
The balance of the week will be given up to a careful canvass of the city
and farm campus faculty and a mail campaign among the alumni of the last three
The business-management was most ably assisted during the campaign by
a number of students whose work as solicitors made it possible to secure such a
large subscription list. The business-management wishes to take this means to
. thank the following for their assistance during the past week : Misses Carrie Co
man, Elizabeth Hyde, Helene Minor and Erma Nelson ; Spray Gardner, Phil
Warner, Robert Harley, Mathew Herold, U. S. Harkson, Leon M. Palmer, Otis
E. Simpson, Theodore Kubik and Paul Pascale.
