'dien Await Orders From
Maclvor to Move in
Nebraska the First S. A. T. C. in
the Country to Send Men to
The twfnty-eight men who were se
lected from the S. A. T. C. to a'.iend
officers' training camps left Friday
afternoon. October 11. ai 4:30. Four
of tbem went to Camp Hancock. Ga.,
and the rest were sent to Camp Mo
Arthur. Waco. Texas.
It is of particular interest to note
that the men who left from the Unl
Tersity of Nebraska to become officers
In Uncle Sam's army were the first
S. A. T. C. men to be sent from any
part of the United States. The inci
dent reflects the good work of the
recruiting officer. Professor George
Chatburn. and of the commandant.
Men will be picked from the S. A.
T. C. at irregular intervals. Prob
ably the rookies will be picked as
fast a? they show signs of promotion.
The plan of the S. A. T. C. work is to
prepare men for the officers' training
ramps. Therefore men will" not be
kept here any longer than necessary.
Everybody has an equal chance. The
man who works the most intelligently
will get ahead.

Some of the equipment is not in yet.
However, orders have been given for

Captain Maclvor expects to an

changes affecting both classes in
school and drill requirements.
Dean Engberg announces, for the
benefit of certain university men who
have been on needles for some time,
that the engineering reserves and
other reserves" will be taken into the
S. A. T. C. during this week. The de

Following s a copy of a letter re
celved on Friday morning by Dean
Engberg from Edward E. Nicholson,
district educational director. District
"S" of the S. A. T. C:
1. Out of the total schedule of fifty-three
hours for the week, eleven
hours Is to be set aside for drill and
Saturday inspection, and forty-two
hours is to be reserved for scholastic
work, class work and preparation.
2. For men In engineering and
medicine of the sophomore year and
above who have had one year of mili
tary drill at your institution or its
equivalent, the military requirement
may be reduced from eleven hours to
not less than six, with the understand
ing that this excess time is to be filled
up w 1th strictly technical work.
3. Juniors and seniors in the tech
nical schools need not take the war
aims course. In the other schools,
thes,e students who have had a course
practically equivalent to war aims
may be excused. I suggest the fol
lowing procedure for them: That they
make application for excuse, report
ing too the man in charge of this
course, he to pass Judgment as to the
equivalents, approving or disapprov
ing. They should then pass through
the hands of one man yourself, for
instance, as I expect to ask that there
be appointed in each institution one
man with whom I may deal directly.
4. In the case of engineering, only
two terms of war aims will be requir
ed of the freshman and sophomores
six months. This should be combined
with the rhetoric course as per in
structions. Students who may have
had war aims course last year may be
excused by following procedure as

Complyinp with the emergency order-of the Lincoln city coun
cil issued Saturday all classes of the University have been closed
until the Spanish epidemic is fully under control. The regulations
require that all schools, theatres, churches and places of public
amusement or gathering remained closed indefinitely.
Chancellor Hastings interpreted the order to refer to the Uni
versity and slates that school will remain closed in accordance with
the directions until a definite agreement has been made. Captain

BOOKS FAST ARRIVING
TOR i WAR AIMS COURSE
It is interesting to note." said Pro-
to the -warlfetsof Guernsey Jones, "how soon
after there is a demand for a certain
kind of text book, that they -can be

for the war aims course have already
been prepared, and more are appear

The order came after a meeting of
the city council to consider the reso
lution presented by John Wright,
commissioner of public safety, rec
ommending that all public places of
instruction and amusement together
with churches be closed Immediately
to prevent the further spread of the
Spanish influenza which had gained
considerable progress in the city to
ward the middle of last week.
This order contradicts directly the
policy proposed by C. F. Chapman,
superintendent of health and the mem
bers "of the health department, who
considered that the epidemic wai
sufficiently under control to warrant
the continuance especially of the
The council upon consideration of
the situation, however, conluded that
the wisest thing for the present was
to close every place where the epi-
j demlc might gam ground and thereby

I tlon where it might be guarded against
j any serious outbreak of the disease.

A new epidemic, more violent than
the Spanish influenza, is rapidly
spreading over the campus. Every
day new- cases are reported of vic
tims stricken with the fataV maUdy;
diagnosed as "Love's Young Dream."
Up to this time, men in civilian
clothes seem to be more or less ex
empt from the affliction, the greatest
suffering occurring among the soldiers
No place on the campus is free
from these unfortunate beings. You
see them on every bench, on every
walk, beneath every tree, in every
secluded nook. As far as the eye can

The symptoms of this plague are
