Scott Pleased With Mem
bership of Cast.
For the Interest showo and
trouble taken In preparation,
the Koamet Klub wishes to ex
preBB Its thanks to all thoBo
who were participants In Its
annual tryout, held February
4th and Bth.
The "Klub" further wishes to
anpounoe that the selections
"were made upon the candl-
dates' general qualifications for
the part in question. This in-
dueled appearance, temporn-
ment and dramatic ability.
BecauBo of the wealth of un
UBually good talent, selections
were Jlfllcult to make, thus
causing the announcement to
be delayed until this time.
Forty-seven people have been
chosen for the cast of the Kosmet
play to be staged Friday night, May 1.
The, tryouts were held last week and
tho work of the judges has just been
completed. Owing to the large num
ber of talented contestants, tho com
mittee found it somewhat hard to
make the selections, which caused tho
Seyeral of last year's cast will ap
pear again this season, but tho great
majority of the parts will go to now

charge of the production, Is particular

PUNS OF COUNCIL
BOUNDING INTO SHAPE
Meeting Last Night Thorough Dis
cussion of Problem Three
The committee on student council
plans met again last night. They con
tinued the discussion of systems used
at other universities and tried to
formulate some definite plan of action
for Nebraska- AH Information re
ceived has been tabulated and placed
In form for rapid reference. Several
constitutions and many letters have
been analyzed and the material
"pigeon holed" In trying to get definite
plans for Nebraska use. The Investi
gation shows that there are three pos
sible, plans: First, a council might be
organized which would control all
lines of University activity, Including
the athletic board, publication board,
etc.; second, a body which would con
trol merely the ordinary or more gen
eral activities, that, Is much the same
work' 08 is now done by tho Innocents
sad" the Black Masques; third, no
council' at all the present system.
The third plan is, of course, given no
consideration. Nebraska is familiar
with, ka workings.
