PETITION BEING CIRCULATED FA
WANT REAL MILITARY LIFE
Instigators of the Movement Believe
That University Cadet Regiment
Can Hold Camp With Credit
to the College.
A petition is about to be circulated
by the captains of the cadet companies
which will determlno the status of
opinion in regard to the reinstatement
of the annual military camp. The
"We, the undersigned, members of
the First Regiment, University of Ne
braska Cadets, having affixed our sig
natures to this petition, ask that the
annual military camp be reinstated
this spring. It Is understood that we
favor a MILITARY camp, and that we
will hold ourselves subject to such
military rules of discipline as the offi
cers in command deem necessary. We
shall expect it to be such a camp as
will be a credit to the University."
The nature of this petition might
Indicate at first that, because the paBt
few cadet camps were unsatisfactory
in more ways than one, it is the inten
tion of the proBent propagaters to pre
scribe that this one shall bo devoid of
all freedom and conducted as a strict
disciplinar- propaganda for field in
struction alone. This is by no means
the general purport of the petition or
the design of conducting the camp.
It Is, however, the earnest Intention of
those favoring the proposition to boost
and support a camp which Bhall be
not only a "credit to the University,"
but which shall give the cadets a
chance to become acquainted with real
military camp life In all its various
phases, and to receive practical and
expert instruction In every kind of
field work. And this can be done
without eliminating the social .aspect
of the camp. The hours of "off duty"
will be as frequent as ever and it Is
expected that one and all will make
use of these periods to do whatever he
chooses to have a good time, so long
as It does not reflect upon the good
name of the camp. Those who are in
touch with the general sentiment of
the cadet body are certain that this
can be done.
If the circulation of the petition
proves a success, detailed plans for a
first-class camp will be presented.
There are already three or more
schemes which are being elaborated
for a profitable management of such

Petition to Create Tango Class Finds
Favor With Students.
The petition to the faculty for a
class in tango dancing, to take the
place of part of the gymnasium work,
has met with great favor. Many
names have already been, received,
and1 if the present rate Is kept up,
practically every student in the Uni
versity -will sign before Saturday.
Since none of the faculty have talcen
a stand against the movement, and
since it deems to be so popular with
the students. It Is probable that the
petition' will he granted In the near
future.-T-The Dally Maroon.

8kull Caps Cause College Row.
Irritated because the student body
had voted to allow the freshmen to
wear gray woolen skating caps during
the winter instead of the conventional
black skull cap, one hundred mem
bers of the sophomore class of New
York University walked out of the
student assembly meeting in a body.
After this secession the student body
debarred the sophomores from organi
zation until an apology was offered.
The sophomores have issued warnings
to the freshmen, saying that they were
forced to wear the skull caps when

In the past five years aver one
thousand students have won free

Mr. Ira M. Smith and Mr. H. W. Frey.
There is an unlimited number of such
free scholarships, bearing a cash value
of from $250 to $1,000 apiece, avail

scholarships are not competitive in
any sense of the word. Any student
of good character is eligible to win
such a scholarship.
President Woodrow Wilson, together
with five prominent college presidents,

Tho University Cadet Band gave its
annual indoor concert Monday even

Jn the quantity of the audience was
made up for in the quality of the
music. ThoBO who did go were con
vinced that tho title "America's Great
est College Band" has not been mis
applied. The program ranged from a raggy
trombone slido to the "Second Hun
garian Rhapsody." A specially ar
ranged trombone sextette and the old
"U-U-U-N-I" tune played by the bands
of the various nations. An unbiased
critic made the remark after the con
cert that the clarinet section was espe
cially strong, but that tho heavy base
pieces should have come out stronger
in some places. But, at that, it so
pleased tho audience that no piece
went without spirited applause.
The Canoe Quartette gave two se
lected numbers. They were not as
popular with the audience as might
have been. They didn't moke enough
noise; they didn't sing the ever-popular
