Imported Dancing Professor to Culture
Students In Neglected Art.
Are you going to tho "Tango Tea"?
Or Is it a "Tho Dansant"? Or, in fact,
is there any tea at all Just tango?
But tho tango, well Borved, is enough
for tho most exacting. And they do
say there Is to be SOME service. An
honost-to-goodnoss professional tango
man and his dancing partner have
been imported from Omaha to show
tho boys how It 1b done.
This Is tho first venturo of Its kind
at Nebraska, but It 1b by no means
new to the college world. Chicago
University 1b about to Btart a class In
tango Instruction. Students have peti
tioned tho faculty to establish tho
class In lieu of gm work. Practically
all tho students have signed tho peti
tion. Tho faculty have no objections.
In tho opinion of the Daily Maroon,
tho petition will bo granted in tho near
What would you say if, when tho
University catalogue comes out next
spring, you saw an announcement of
tho newly croated Department of the
Tango and Allied Dances? Tako this
as a warning. Perhaps tho impossible
may not be so Impossible after all.
But just now It looks as if we must
resort to private parties to quench tho
burning thirBt for knowledge. Tho
University is failing to Instruct us in
the most Important singlo(?) science
of today. More money, more time,
more energy is spent today on the
tango than on all other serious inves
tigations. And yet we have to go to
a private school for training. The
first class, which will Instruct begin
ners as well as "old heads," will meet
in L(indell) Hall, Saturday afternoon
at 2:30 p. m.

presentation of tho poBltivo merits of
their dance. But here it is, the bona
flde "dope" on tho big event. Judge
"As the last danco given under tho
auspices of tho flrBt semester regime,
tho Junior Hop waa announced yester
day as scheduled for February 28, the
last day of the month (really, know?)
and on Saturdaj night Tho place will
bo the Now Llndell Ball Room, made
bo famous by the successful Senior
Hop recently held there.
"Since tho class of 1916 is entirely
out of debt through the success of the
Junior Prom, every cent taken in will
bo spent in giving tho beBt Informal
of tho year. Programs will bo some
thing out of tho ordinary and will bo
worth keeping as favors. Tho refresh
ments are promised by Mr. Johnson of
tho Llndell as the best that ho can
furnish and he guarantees that no slip
will occur In tho quality, Buch aa was
experienced at the Lincoln at the
Junior Prom. The music will be
largely tangos and hesitations, owing
to tho demand being made by student
sentiment for melody of this type.
Tickets will cost $1.25 and one hun

Tho faculty at the University of
Minnesota are considering the adop
tion of the "quarter system" in the
agricultural college. By this plan tho
school year !s divided into four quar
ters instead of halves. Examinations'
are to be given at the end of each
quarter. This system 1b considered
especially desirable for agricultural
students, who find it difficult to return
to school as early as September, and
for those earning their expenses.
