to solve the industrial problems of
today and to solve the quesllons arls-

pensation Act," saying that it was
formed to abolish suit and to award
compensation to the laborer.
The Law College vr.lued the talk

The new directory embraces many

and Peter Frederlcksen, '21, are to be

located at the following places: Social
Science hall. University hall, west
entrance to Armory, Law building and

Societies of University Asked to Furnish a Guarantee Fund to Secure
Success of Undertaking Innocents Behind Activity.
Plans for the Cornhusker song book
are rapidly ncaring completion. The
movement is receiving wide publicity
and meeting approval all over the
state. Already University organiza
tions are backing the book wkh
Not only is the Daily Nebraskan
helping with the publicity, but the
Lincoln and Omaha papers and other
papers throughout the state are help
ing, both in their news and editorial
sections, to make this book a success.
Clarence Haley, president of the
Innocents Society, stated the stand
taken by the organization as follows.:
"The Innocents endorse and hearti
ly approve of the work planned by
the Cornhusker song book committee
and are ready and anxious to back
this committee both financially and
by co-operating in every possible way
to successfully publish a song bo6k
for the University of Nebraska."
Financial Plan.
Ruth Kadel, Ruth Lindsay and
Russell Bailey, in charge of the
financing of the book, have outlined
the plan to be followed. It is decided
that! each organization in the Uni
versity will be solicited for the sum
of $10 to form a guarantee fund In
order that the work may commence
at once.
This plan was elected because ' it
would not affect individuals and
would be too small a sum to affect an
organization materially and would
give students an opportunity to back
up a worthy proposition.
As soon as each organization has
been solicited a list of those con
tributing will be printed in the Daily
Nebraskan, and it will appear in the
song book when it is published.
The fund secured in this way will
be handled through the Student Ac-
tivilies office, and a financial state
ment will be published at a later
