One hundred girls whose names will
be announced later, will aid Miss

and to decide on the details of the
campaign. It is planned to reach
every girl of the University either
through talks at the dormitories and
sorority houses or by personal inter
views. There is to be no fee for mem
bership this year as there has been
in the previous membership drives,
but each member in Joining pledges

Two Sections to Be Formed One for
Training Work and Other of
Social Nature.
Camp Fire groups will be organized
in the University this year for the
purpose of giving girls an opportunity
to train for . guardians work and to
bring together Camp Fire girls from
different parts of the state. A meet
ing was held Wednesday to discuss
plans for organization and to interest
girls in the work. Ruth McKenney,
a former member of the University
Wrolohi Camp Fire, was in charge of
the meeting.
Two groupB will be formed ir
enough girls signify their interest
One will be a Guardian's training
class which will meet one? a week.
There is a demand among University
girls for such a class because often
when they go home or to teach school
they are called on to lead Camp Fire
groups of younger girls. The work
will be similar to that of the past
three years when Mrs. F. F. Teal a class,' organized under the
name of the"VVololil Camp Fire. The
Camp Fire was rearded as a model
group. As well as learning how to
carry on the work the girls did prac

The second group wiil be more of a
social group. There are a large num
ber of girls In the University who
have at one time been actively asso
ciated with the Wolohi Camp Fire or
who have been Camp Fire guardians
in their home towns. For tnese girls
who can not enter the guardian's
training class the social organization
is planned which will meet less fre
quently but will keep the girls in
touch with Camp Fire.
Any girl in the University, whether
or not she has had any Camp Fire
experience, is invited to Join one of
the groups. A meeting will be held
Monday afternoon at 4 o'clock to
perfect plans of organization. Those
who can not attend this meeting but
who wish to take up the work are
asked to give their names and ad
dresses to Ruth McKenney. The
year's program and group leaders
will be announced later.

chairs and tables; it has the refer
ence library for modern and classical
languages, several new dictionaries
and lexicons and English reference
books. Two private rooms for gradu
ate students of language are provided.

there furnishes a welcome for the stu
dents of classical languages as well.
The light and air are good and help
to make a pleasant study room. Mrs.
Nellie B. Pickup la the library assist

Freshmen Girls Work Hard .
For Only An Hour's Credit
"What an easy way to get a credit,"
remarked an interested onlooker as
he passed a class of Freshman co-eds
learning to twirl Indian clubs. Per

their disinterested faces as they
listened to the directions of the In
structor. A few minutes earlier they were a
mass of hot humanity in the small
crowded locker rooms, each interested
only in finding her locker, and elbow

One Freshman girl had no trouble in

Students from Metropolis to Gather
in Social Science Auditorium
Tuesday Night.
The Omaha Club will hold a meet
ing Tuesday night, October 26, in the
Social Science Auditorium to organize
their work for the year. The meet
ing has been called by Jesse Patty,
president of. the organization.
The club was organized early in
the spring this year to bring about a
closer relationship between active
students in the University and Omaha
alumni. The students were active in
providing entertainment for visitors
attending the High School track meet
held here in the spring, and took
care of the old grads who attended
the commencement week festivities.
Last year there were over 200 mem
bers in the club and it is hoped
that, with the large number of Fresh
men entering the school fro.n Omaha
this semester, the club membership
will reach 300.
The officers elected last year will
retain their positions until next
spring, when officers for the follow
ing year will be elected. The active
officers are as follows: Jesse Patty,
president; Dorothy Hippie, vice-president;
Ray Stryker, secretary; and
Harry Latowsky, treasurer.
Mary Baker Elected
to Advisory Board
Mary Baker, '21, was elected a
member of the Senior Advisory Board
at the meeting of that body Thurs
day night. Miss Baker will fill the
vacancy caused by Grace Lufkin, ex
'21. who did not return to school this
fall. The newly elected member is
one of the prominent Seniors on the
campus. Besides being a competent
Y. W. C. A. worker and one of the
thirty captains on the Committee of
Two Hundred, she has done much for
individual girls in school.
only the co-ed herself can realize how
well-earned is that compulsory credit.
To her it seems a waste of time and
she thinks of the unprepared French
lesson. Her arms become limp,, a fly
tickles her nose, but she dares not
knock it away lest she lose her credit
for the year, and still the instructor
snaps forth the hated directions. She
thinks with envy of her roommate
w"no, "Lucky one," secured a reprieve.
"How did she get it," she murmurs
and at the same time almost hates
herself for being so healthy. To her
gym is the cause of all evils. No
wonder she is late to her next class.
And of course It Is the alleged cause
of all colds.
But suddenly she forgets her un
pleasant thoughts, her pout becomes
a smile, she hears the ever welcome
words, "Class dismissed."

South Dakota, 88.
First downs Nebraska, 11;
South Dakota, 2.
Punts Nebraska 11 for 388

Passes incomplete Nebraska,
5; South Dakota, 3.
Passes intercepted Dubai.
Drop kicks attempted Ne
braska, Dana, 2.
Nebraska's Cornhuskere proved
their ability as football ar'.itts Satur
day by taking the South Dakota ag
gregatlon into camp to the tune of 20
to 0. This makes the third shutout
of the season for Nebraska.
The advantage in weight that Ne
braska had over the Coyotes was one
of the main factors in the victory.
Coach Schulte's warriors had all the
"breaks" in the game as fv as luck
was concerned. The Coyotots had lots
of fight but could not withstand the
rushes of the heavy Nebraska for
wards and backs.
The first half of the game; was not
much better than the average high
school team puts on and was very
disappointing to the followers of the
Huskers. Most of the flvei half was
taken up in a punting duel between
iue two teams with honors about
even. Nebraska seemed to be in a
trance and unable to come out of it.
The Huskers failed to niake first
downs many times in this period of
the game but woke up later on.
Neither team seemed capable of hang
ing onto the ball and fumbles were
frequent on both sides.
South Dakota kicked off to Ne
braska the second half and Nebraska
began to display some real football
ability. The Huskers were able to
make first downs without much diffi
culty at this stage of the game.

University Dramatists Plan Series of
Plays Proceeds Go to School
Activities or Charity.
The University Tlayers are plan
ning a number of excellent produc
tions this year. The organization will
send a number of plays out Univer
sity Week during spring vacation.
The tla vers are chosen from stu
dents studying dramatic art and those
appearing in Dramatic Club plays.
Often alumni of the University appear
when a particular "type" is needed.
The class of plays preseu'.ed are oi
the best Last year the following
plays were given: "It Pays to Ad
vertise." "The Witcnin,, Hour,
Under Cover." "Twelfth Night" and
Mrs. Bumstead-Leigh."
Three or four weeks of intensive
practice must be put in before a play
readv for presentation. Beiore
they are given in the Temple for the
University, practice performances are
given to "smooth up" any imperfec
tions. As an advertisement for the Uni
versity, the Players have an advan
tage over any athletic activity, ioi
ih Rhowsi that are presented over the
state give patrons of the school a
definite Idea of what is heir oone.
Th r1av nresented often cost tne
producers as much as 50 a night
mvultv. The profits made by the.
players are devoted to school activi
ties or benevolences. Two tnousanu
rWlsra has been pledged toward the
Memorial rnnnasram. Last year the
entire proceeds of one performance
was lren to the French orphan
