Mr. Teters was chosen from the
seven applicants for the scholarship.
Only three of the applicants were Uni

not more applicants from the Uni

be at least twenty-five candidates for
each selection. The Nebraskan hopes
to be able to furnish, in the near fu

the requirements for candidates for

that a lock of information prevents

the Law College at the University,
gave his first lecture to the entire
college at the iiew lecture period
hour, eleven o'clock, Friday, Septem
ber 24. This course of general lec
tures is required and must be taken

the plodder should confine their
work to application of textbook
knowledge gleaned from the course
they are taking.

SCORE 15-7 AT END OF SIXTH
The Cornhusker football season was
inaugurated Saturday when the Var

tune of 15 to 7. This score was
somewhat smaller than was expected
on the part of the Varsity but goes

scheduled game with Washburn Col

Every man on the Varsity and
Freshmen squads had a chance to
show what he could do Saturday.
Both coaches used enough men for
three teams. Most of the play in the
first six periods of the game was in
Freshman territory. Very few for
ward passes were used by the Var
sity. The freshmen had much diffi
culty in making any substantial gains
through the Varsity's line but were
more successful on end runs. The
"Frosh" also completed more for
ward passes than the Varsity.
The lineup at the beginning of the
game was lined up as follows:

LESS THAN LAST YEAR
Dean Burnett estimates that ap
proximately 400 men and women have
registered for work in the College of
Agriculture. Up to last Saturday, 218
men and 176 women had registered.
This is a little less than the first
emester last year but about the same
as the second semester.
Registration for the School of Agri
ulture opens October 5. Last year,
50 were enrolled the first semester
and 471 the second. Boys entering
the school must have at least three
months of actual farm experience and
be seventeen years of age while the
girls must be sixteen ;'ears. The
room question will become acute
when the short courses open because
they are scarce and with the addftion
of the School of Agriculture students

Convocation for Freshmen girls will
be held Tuesday at eleven o'clock in
the Temple Theater. The purpose
of this meeting is to acquaint the new
girls with the names and work of the
various organizations and societies
having to do with women of the Uni
versity of Nebraska. Every girl
should be interested in knowing what
lines of activities she can enter into
and this is an opportunity to find out
about such things.
The presidents of the various or
ganizations will each give a talk on
the work done by their particular
group of girls.
Janet Maitland is the chairman in
charge of the convocation. She will
give a talk on Black Masque, the

H. O. Werner, secretary of the Ne

that a movement is on foot to estab

more effective means of marketing
this big Nebraska crop. A meeting
of potato growers, agricultural agents.
commercial representatives, State Sec
retary of Agriculture Leo Stuhr and
others was recently held at Alliance
to perfect plans for the exchange.
It Is planned to establish a central
exchange at Alliance, with affiliated
local exchanges or associations over
the potato belt. The local exchanges
will market their potatoes through
the central exchange. The local asso
ciations are to be organized imme
diately and a mass meeting of dele
gates from such associations held to
complete the organization of the cen
tral exchange. It is planned to have
the exchange in operation in time to
handle this year's crop. Potato grow

The ten o'clock classes are proving
the most popular, while three o'clocks
and two o'clocks are absolutely
tatooed by students. Nine o'clock
classes are next in line in the number
registered in them. Many students
find that eight o'clock classes are
after all, quite desirable, as the mind
is clearer at that hour than at any
other time. "Go and get it over," is
one explanation they have for the
popularity of first-hour classes.

ANIMAL PATHOLOGY BUILDING
ONE OF FINEST IN COUNTRY.
One of the most modern animal
pathology and hygiene laboratories in
the United States was dedicated at
the University State Farm Friday
afternoon. Dr. Theobald Smith, di
rector of the Department of Animal
Pathology of the Rockefeller Medical
Research Institute, Princeton, N. J.,
was the principle speaker. Short
addresses were delivered by Chancel
lor Avery, Regent E. P. Brown, Dean
E. A Burnett Dean I. S. Cutter, Dr.
L. Van Es, chairman of the Depart
ment of Animal Pathology and
Hygiene, and Dr. S. W. Alford, presi
dent of the Nebraska Veterinary Asso
ciation. The dedication services
were held in the Agricultural Hall
Dr. Smith pointed out the import
ance of the study of animal diseases
in connection with the production of
food. And as the production of food
is becoming a greater problem the
study of animal diseases becomes of
vital importance. Domestic animals
perform a service very necessary to
the sustenance of mankind, and that
is the conversion of nature's abund
ant indigestible roughage into milk,
muscle and fats, that are nutritious
and easily digested. The study of
animal diseases has ceased to be
merely for the benefit of scientific
knowledge but is of tremendous eco
nomic importance as well. The in
creasing demand for food has placed
an increased burden upon the animals
in that they are called upon to fur
nish an increased output of offspring.
eggs, milk, fat and muscular tissue
and wool. Animals must not only
maintain health but must increase
their efficiency. It must use cheaper
grades of feed in place of the feeds
and food now used directly as human
food. This increased pressure upon
the animal must be closely studied.
The pathologist must determine to
what extent animals may be pushed
to yield energy before internal equili
brium is upset and diseases begin.
He must watch changes in food,
whether they contain harmful poison
ous substances or not, and whether
or not they are sufficiently nutritious.
"An ounce of prevention is better
than a pound of cure," according to
scientists, and research work directs
itself towards this point Large, de
structive forces have small begin
nings and therefore it is only in the
beginning that we can stop them.
The object of research work is to get
as close as possible to the beginning
of those natural phenomena we wish
to oppose or destroy.
