Harry Linton, chairman of the Com
mittee of Two Hundred, has an
nounced the program for the 1,000
student banquet to be held in the
Scottish Rite Temple, Tuesday eve

largest banquet ever given at the

Nearly all tickets have been disposed
of and only a very limited number
will be on sale today at the Y. M.
C. A. office. Every student should
buy his ticket at once. Plates will
be at a premium by Monday noon.
The all-University banquet for a
thousand students has for its imme
diate objective the deepening of in
terest among the students in the
opportunities of religious education
offered them in the city and on the
campus. There seems to be an un
usual interest in the activities of the
University which tend to strengthen
the moral and develop a wholesome
University life.
Dr. John Timothy Stone, of the
Fourth Presbyterian church of Chi
cago, will be the principal speaker of
the evening. Although Dr. Stone is
well known to students and faculty
of other universities he is to make
his first visit to the Nebraska Uni
verslty next Tuesday. Other speak
ers on the program are Guy C. Reed,
'11. and Dean Buck. Marion C. Mote,
'22, and Clarence Dunham, '23, will
make four minute speeches represent
ing the students. Harry Linton, '21,
will preside.
Dr. Stone is a graduate of Amherst
and a trustee of his Alma Mater. He
has been chosen University pastor for
fvprnl of the universities and col
leges and is frequently a speaker at
student conferences of various kinds.
His messages are always full of
human interest and unusually sym
pathetic with students in their edu
cational problems.
He is a great lover of nature, and
for many years has spent his sum
mers in the Rocky Mountains, where
he has a commanding view from his
summer home overlooking Estes park
and looking out upon the snowy range.
Alumni Teachers Will

Alumni of the University who are
attending the State Teachers' Asso
ciation in Omaha will be entertained
at a University of Nebraska luncheon
November 4, under the auspices of
the Alumni Association. Alumni
President Dan J. Riley, during his

the forming of new acquaintances and
to renew old friendships, according to
President Riley.

Plan of University Is to Also Hold
All-School Athletic Games,
on New Tract.
The four blocks of additional cam
pus, which have been visibly incor
porated into the University extension
program, will soon be in use as a
drllkand parade ground for the R. O
T. C, and aso as a field for the all
school athletic games which are on
the new programof the Department
of Physical Education. According to
Chancellor Samuel . Avery the new
quad may be used by bothdepart
ments so long as space is availabl
As new buildings become necessary
to house the University's increasing
equipment for her increasing number
of students, the new grounds will be
gradually utilized for these structures
and additional campus space. The
space is already mapped for newly
authorized buildings and gardens
Four new structures have already
been erected on the original six-block
tract of which this area is the remain
ing plat
Houses and Trees Removed.
The new campus, "outside the Iron
fence," has necessitated the removing
of a number of dwellings and many
of the most venerable trees In Lin
coln. Chancellor Avery has directed
that all houses on the tract that are
not suitable for dormitory purposes
be vacated at once and the dwellings
and sheds removed from the newly
laid out plat. Trees some of them
nearly a century old have been dyna
mited from the ground. According
to E. L. Goldsmith, assistant superin
tendent of construction, who has been
in charge of the grading and clear
ing, a dynamite charge of about fiv
pounds removes a fair-sized tree, roots
and all "as neatly as you would pul!
a dandelion out of your lawn."
The new four-block trat includes
the space of ground between Bessey
Hall and the Social Science Building,
from Twelfth to Fourteenth street
To date the houses have been torn
dewn in this district and the debris
has been carted ' away. The cellars
have been filled up and the ground
l;elled off. A force of some fifty
graders and wreckers under the direc
tion of Superintendent C. E. Chowins
of the Grounds and Buildings Depart
ment, has transferred the "No Man's
Land" of the University to other parts
of the city.

Want Pep and Fire.
It is possible that some member ol
the Innocents Society will be present
to give the Freshmen a better idea
as to what the significance of the
Olympics are and the real value de
rived from them.
President Craig asked for the larg
est place the University affords to
hold a meeting. When given the
privilege of using the Temple Theater
he seemed a little disappointed.
When questioned he said that he did
not know whether the Temple would
hold all of the enthusiasm or not.
Freshman Olympic Committees.
The committees for the coming
Olympics have been announced by
President Craig of-the Freshmen. He

President Philbrick Will Announce
Appointments at First Meeting
of Group This Year.
Sophomores will be given the
chance to raise their stock in the
Olympics at least a hundred points at
the first class meeting of the year,
Tuesday morning, in Law 202, at
11:30 o'clock. Class committee ap
pointments will be announced by
President Philbrick and preparations
for the coming Olympics will receive
fresh impetus. Up to date not
much enthusiasm and spirit has been
shown by the class over the approach
ine Olympics struggle. There has
been a feeling that the coming clash
will be easy for the Sophomores be
cause of their victory last year. The
Freshman class of this year are in a
position to put up a much harder
scrap than the class of 1922 gave the
Sophomores last fall. It will take the
support of every man in the class if
the Sophomore colors are to . come
out on top at the struggle Saturday
Few Report for Tryouts.
Much remains to be done in the
next, few days in preparation for the
scrap. The finals in the wrestling
and boxing tryouts are to be run off
and a team picked for the 400 yard
relay. Only a handful of men showed
up for the relay tryouts Saturday
morning and few of these had track
experience, although all had an
abundance of the Sophomore spirit.
More men must try out before a team
can be picked.
All Sophomores will have a chance
to show their pep and spirit at the
Tuesday morning meetirg. Plans for
organizing the class into an efficient
fighting body will be perfected. Co-eds
as well as men are urged to join in
the preparations for the Olympics.
With several hundred fair co-eds
cheering them on, the Sophomore
warriors can not fall to tear the
Freshmen up in the annual scrap, is
the opinion of most of the second
year men.
Original Cartoon of
Commoner in Library
Walter S. Whitten has presented
the Universtiy library with an origi
nal Bryan cartoon by the famous
cartoonist, "Ding" of the Des Moines
Register. The cartoon is one pre
sented to Mr. Whitten by the artist,
J. W. Darling, and is inscribed with
his well known nom de plume. It
will be added to the University's
unjue collection depicting various
phases of the great commoner's pub
lie life as pictured on the front pages
of the press during three presidential
campaigns. The cartoon originals
forming the collection are drawn from
both sides of the political fence. They
are interesting, not only as examples
of newspaper art but as a historical
