The sophomores held tho first class
hop at the Lincoln Hotel, November
22nd. This affair was yery success
ful, and because the habit had been
acquired through necessity, the old
dances were thoroughly enjoyed.
Afler Thanksgiving recess, tho first
events of note were the annual Corn
husker banquet and the newly-Installed
girls' Cornhusker party. It is
hard to say which was the more suc
cessful, and probably no unanimous

room of the Llndoll with a very Uvoly
party, which waB Justly termed one
of the classiest dances of the year.
The result of this success wus the com
petition between tlie Lincoln and Lin
doll hotels, which not only amused
University students, but also added
fraternally and financially to their en
joyment of dances at these halls.
The season of tho first semestor's
social affairs was ended in the grand
splurge of the Junior Prom and the
men's Pan-Hellenic banquet. The
Junior Prom may be remembered not
only as a very' successful social event,
but aB a financial boon to the junior
class, which was in need of such lifts.
The Cornhusker banquet is reported
to have been particularly graced with
napkin decorations on the chandeliers.

Need of Officers Felt.
"When, the Spanish-American war
came we had plenty of volunteers, all
the men and more than were needed,"
Captain Laubach said. "But there was
a shortage of officers. We had not
men to put in command of the com-
of men. Immediately after that war
tho government entered upon a policy
of making the military instruction at
the schools and colleges that had a
cadet corps more practical.
"Perfect knowledge of drills was not
so essential as giving the cadets a
thorough knowledge of camp sanita
tion and tho handling of men so that
half the company would not be in the
hospital in a few months. The ofllcers
detailed to the schools as instructors
havo been giving the cadet corps prac
tical instruction. Each year there are
graduated or turned out from the
many BCholB at which the. government

know tho manual, but' who have a

eight or ten years, whon they are
dropped to make room for new lists.
"For example, there is a list of
