H. G. Paine of New York City, sec

Board, has written to the editor-in-chief
of The Nebraskan. asking that
the paper adopt the twelve words
recommended by the board and al
ready adopted by the University, and
suggesting that some of the simpler
forms could be introduced without the
paper becoming at all radical.

to the University. Coach Stewart has
said that it may mean the loss of the
game not to have the band, as it has
accompanied the team on every trip
for many years past. The vigor with
which the football men are pushing
the sale of tickets is ample evidence of
the Importance they give to the trip.
The goal that is being tried for. is
$2,600. This is a scant allowance to
take the organization of the fory best
players to the coast and return, and
yet with this amount in hand, the ath
letic board feels that it can assume
the rest of the burden.
Best estimates on the number of
tickets that can be sold for the Friday
night party place it at 1 2,000. There
are almost that many men students

not less than $200 will be raised by

University girl to give a little more
