Language Study Room In University Hall The English and modern language study room and library, recently opened in the north wing on the third floor In University Hall, is meeting a long felt want at the University. Besides providing a quiet, roomy and well-lighted place for students or languages and literature to study, it also serves to relieve the. congestion both at the tables and on the shelves in the main library. The entire classical library has been moved to the new quarters. Perhaps the distinguishing feature of the language library Is the splendid assortment of encyclopedias and die tlonaries. It alBO contains lexicons In Spanish, French and German as well as in English, Latin r.nd Oreek Special reserve shelves or books are being selected by instructors and transferred to the new libra.y for use In special courses. Mrs. Nellie li. - .ckup, librarian in charge, will assist students in making the best use or inese accommodations.

QUOTA FOR SPECIAL NOT YET COMPLETE ONE HUNDRED TWENTY-FIVE MUST SIGN IF TRAIN SECURED. Slim Response Made to Call Student Rooters to Accom pany Team, for RICE FIVE CENTS. Watch This Space Until Thursday, October 28 Request Made for List of New York Alumni MATHEMATICAL SOCIETY TO MEET HERE AT UNIVERSITY SOUTHWESTERN SECTION WILL HOLD GATHERING IN NOVEMBER, Representatives from Neighboring States to Discuss Problems at Joint Conference. It is up to 125 persons at the Uni versity to advise Chairman Guy Reed immediately that they desire to take advantage of the f 170 round trip fare to New York for the Rubers game, November 2, if a special train is to be chartered fdr that journey If the required number of fares have not been sold before Friday of this week. the special train feature will be abandoned. The number of students who have declared their intention to go on the "special" has been so small that there is every indication that the project will not be under taken. Although many students had visions of leaving on a special train with the squad, the fact that mid-semester examinations will be given when most of them would be out of school, has dampened their plans somewhat and has led them to delay signing up for the journey. Yesterday it was known on the campus that automobiles in the city will be ready to make the- trip at fares slightly under one hundred dol lars. It would nccessaiily take longer by car than by train to make the trip Whether the student goes by automobile or train the minimum number of days he would miss from the classroom is nine. Team Leaves Friday The football men, numbering ap proximately thirty, will leave Friday afternoon at 4:30 on the Burlington railroad. The itinerary includes five-day stofj in Xew York City, visits at Niagara Falls, Chicago and at State College, Pa. The players will have a light workout Saturday in "The Windy City" and in the after noon they will be given an oppor tunity to witness the cla3h between two of the leading teams in the Big Ten conference. Sunday will be spent In Niagara Falls. All we want is enough time at the Falls to go over them in a barrel." said a member of the team yesterday. The southwestern section of the Mathematical society will hold its an nual meeting at the University of Ne braska during the Thanksgiving re cess. Representatives from the Uni versities of Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, Texas, Oklahoma, the Daketas, and Nebraska will attend the meetings November 25 and 26. Dr. Wm. C Brenke of the Department of Maths matics is president of the socieLy and Prof. L. Ingold of the University of Missouri the secretary. A smoker for visiting members will be one of the social features of the program. President Brenke hopes to able to show the mathematicians some very interesting mathematical antiques in the form of eld manu scripts of which he has learned. The manuscripts are in the library of the curator of the Department of Botany. M. J. Fitzpatrick, from whom Dr. Brenke hopes to obtain them for the November meeting. A member of the rational commit tee on secondary' school curriculum will be present and give an informal talk. The morning and afternoon sessions will be given over to pre sentation of papers and discussions.

The affair will be held in the Lincoln Commercial club ball room. The committee is now planning features 10 add in creased enjoyment to eve.y moment of the evening. A.s the number of tickets bring vali dated is limited, it is expected by those in charge that the greatly in creased club membership will mean a proportionately heavy demand for tickets. It is desired by the commit tee that all new members share this opportunity to enlarge their social ac quaintance. Old members who at tended the parties of last year need no special invitation to put November 1. on their social calendar. AGRICULTURAL STUDENTS PLiNiHL STOCK SHOW Baby International to Be Held First W$jk in November at Uni versity Farm. The Baby International, an annual stock show given by students in the College of Agriculture, will be given Friday, November 5, at the Stock Judging Pavilion on the Farm cam pus. This show is patterned after the International show at Chicago and is given with the purpose of dis playing the animals which will go to the big show in Decembei and to give students in the animal husbandry classes an opportunity to fit and show stock under the same conditions that they would encounter in the show ring. Prizes will be awarded to the winning student Judges. The show is under the supervision of the Block and Bridle club and a committee of forty is working to make this the largest show ever given at Nebraska. Bleachers will be erected in the ends of the pavilion, thus allowing more room for spec tators. Entertainment being planned to relieve the monotony of the show and music bv a-i orchestra will add variety to the program. Method of Allotment. Early tbia.week, the method of the selection of animals will be announced to the animal husbandry classes. The animals will probably be allotted to the first comers at a certain set lime. By using ibis method of allotment each man will have a fair chance and those who do not take the opportunity of presenting themselves early must content themselves with nuing and exhibiting the less desuabie animals. Great interest is taken in iiiis an nual stock show. Last ear some exceedingly well fitted animals were presented for exhibition and students realized the need of such a shQw. With the added faciliti'.'o of this ear, and the variety of program that will be offered, the Baby International will no doubt be the largest and most appreciated that has ever been held t the Farm. The price of admission will be low, probably just enough to over expenses.

The meeting was prompted by the coming grid clash with Rutgers at the Polo Grounds in New York City November 2. Each member of the group happened to be an engineer. None of them knew of the existence or an active University or Nebraska club or organization in New York City. Mr. Stunner writes that he would be grateful if some person having such information at hand would advise him whether br not there has at any time been a Ne braska University club in New York City and if so, would give the names of its officers. Names and addresses of Nebraska alumni now liv'ng in the United States metropolis would also be appreciated by the group. Mr. Sturmer expressed for the group the hope that Nebraska may be victorious over the eastern college and said: "We are very anxious to be rr such help to the U. or N. and to the football team as we are able to be."

The Nebraska forwards will average better than IM pounds, while, the backs top the 180 mark. which means a team average over 185 pounds. The little which the Rutgers and Penn State scouts scanned of Ne braska's offensive system may not be or material value to their eastern superiors the head coaches to whom the scouts have already reported.
