THE UNI. LOCATION QUESTION
26,600 Names Obtained More Than
Amount Required by Law Filed
With Secretary of State
November Election.
Petitions asking that the question
ol tho State University's location be
submitted to the people at the next
general election in November have
tiled with th secretary of state by
i he University amnoriTiPir Twenty
six thousand six hundred names were
signed to tho large number of pet
lions, which if placed one after an
other would make a list several hun
dred feet long.
The law requires 10 per cent of the
votes cast at the last election to be
signed to such a petition. According
to this, 25,912 would be the requisite
number, which leaves a bonus of 788
names. Secretary Walt will make a
canvass of the names upon the peti
tion to ascertain the validity of the
number.
The petitions were circulated under
the direction of the University offi
cials, who are anxious to have the
matter settled In order that the three
fourths mill levy for expansion can be
applied to that purpose. A great
number of the names were secured
through the efforts of students who
canvassed their territory while home
on their vacations A number earned
their railroad fare at Christinas time
in this manner.
(Generally the names of the signa
tures have not been hard to obtain,
but the difficulty seems to have been
in getting tho papers before the ten
per cent of tho voters required for a
referendum.
Those, who are interested in the
question count this another step
toward tho final disposition of the
much-discussed problem.

THINK VACATION IS
THE SPICE OF LIFE
Professors as Well as Athletes, De-
baters, Etc., Make Extended
Trips.
Each year as the autumn season
come 'round the football team la or
ganized and they soon start on their
conquests to "Gophertown" in search
of Gopher hides and to Lawrence after
their "beloved Jayhawk." After tho
football season the debating team de
cide they need a change, so they take
a little trip up to tho city of Malcolm.
Next comes the basketball team. They
practice long and hard and are re
warded by trips to Minneapolis and
Drake, etc. Now, the strange part
about tho whole thing is that tho pro
fessors aro getting the habit of taking
a short trip also. Of course they have
to go to Omaha to judge a debate or
deliver an address or for some other
equally good reason. But the point
still remains, it is a good thing to
take a little change of atmosphere at
tlmeB during the school year. The
professors think so. Moral, if you can
not make the football team nor basket
ball team nor debating team, be a professor.

IOWA WRESTLERS HERE
FOR BIG MATCH TODAY
Five Fast Matcnes in Store for Mat
Fans Co-eds Invited as Well
as Men. ,
The wrestlers of the University of
Iowa will meet Nebraska tonight in
the Armory The referee has not
been selected. This dual meet, which
is nothing short of a tournament, will
begin at eight o'clock. Five matches
will be pulled off. The weights are
125 pounds and under, 140 pounds and
under, 145 pounds and under, 1 tiG
pounds and under, and 17 pounds and
oer. Nebraska will bo represented
by Pascal, Oanz, (lunther, Balis and
Kruse.
Coach Daily, Friday afternoon, made
this prediction: "Nebraska will give
Iowa a run for her money. I don't
care to pick winners, but will say that
I expect three Cornhuskors to pin
their opponents' shoulders to the mat.
The boys are in good condition. They
are going in to win. From a specta
tor's point of view tho matches will
be full of pep."
Every Nebraskan should turn out to
help give Iowa a trimming. This is
tho fourth time the two institutions
have met on the mat. Iowa has won
one dual meet and Nebraska has won
two.
Knock Tango.
It is understood that a number of
first and second year men are being'
called to account or the fact that they
are not taking physical training.
Suggestion: Why not follow the
example of Chicago and Wisconsin,
where the faculties are contemplating
substituting tango lessons for the re
quired physical training. The men
would get tho same amount of exer
cise, and the "gym" classes would
prove the most popular of the whole
curriculum. Drake Daily Delphic.
