FACTS REGARDING PLAN

Annual Trip to Loup City Alumni
From 8urroundlng Territory At
tend Heartily Endorsed.
It has become customary for the
Dramatic Club to mfye an annual trip
to Loup City. Its offerings thoro have
always boon, received very well andi
they aro each time invited to come
again. When there they are visited
by all the alumni in that portion of the )
state. It is unquestionably one of the
biggest and best bits of advertising
tho University of Nebraska gots.
A group of business men get to
gether find guarantee tho expenses of
the trip and sond a cheek for same "In
advance. Then, after all expenses are
paid, whatever profits remain are dl-
tho profits aro usually not great from
a financial standpoint, It must bo re
membered that tho advertising is of
the utmost importance and value.
This is a concrete example of What
University organizations can do. If
It can bo-done by the Dramatic Club,
why can it not bo done by tho other
organizations? It has boon successful
in Minnesota and on this very small
scale in Nebraska without any organ
ized force behind It. This success of
the Dramatic Club -augurs Well for
success in a University Extension

tho Unlvorsity. This it accomplishes
In several striking ways. '

Team, tho Band, tho Conservation and
Soil Survey Department, , and pthr
similar orgauizatlons, will present
tholr spoclal lino of work In about a
dozen cities and towns of the state.
Each city ortown. on t the circuit will
have its "University iWok' that is,
each one will have billed at its opera
houso or hall one week of University
entortalnmont and" instruction. The
whole will bo In charge of the Depart

towns thomsolvos none .will fall on
tho University. Each "nuniber" will
be on the road two weeks, giving. their
'.'act" in twelve amerent towns during
this time. For example: a circuit
might 1o made up of .Beatrice, jiWy
moro, Pawnee City, Humboldt, Dawson
and Falls City. On Monday night In
Beatrice might be tho Dramatic Club,
In Dawson the Qlee Clttb, and In Falls
City, Dr, Condra and his "movies."
Tuesday evening they would all ad

Beatrice. Tills might be one circuit
