Miss Brinkerhoff Is Given
$200 for Article on
Horse Riding.
Martha Brinkerhoff, a senior In
the school of Journalism, recently
received a check for $200 in pay
ment for a story on horseback rid
ing which is to appear in a future
i:'sue of the Woman's Home Com
panion. The title of the story Is
' Just all In Knowing How."
This article was written a year
ao in a class In agricultural
journalism which was conducted
by R. P. Crawford. It is unusual
because of its novel approach to
the subject, the story being of a
practical nature though it is com
bined with a bit of humor.
The article is 3.000 words in
length and has commanded the
highest price of any story written
by agricultural journalism stu
dents, Mr. Crawford said in com
menting upon the success.
Miss Brinkerhoff has had a
great deal of experience in horse
back riding and was an instructor
in this sport in an eastern camp.

Double-Ballroom Party Will
Need Two Orchestras
Instead of One.
Prom Girl Announcement Is
Set to Take Place in
Main Ballroom.
Innovating a new plan for one
of the threw major pnrtles. the
Junior-Senior Prom, arrangements
bave been made by the committee
to present the traditional party iu
two ballrooms at the Hotel Lin
coln with two orchestras yet to
be selected.
According to the plan as an
nounced by Don Orison prom
chairman, the annual formal end
ing the "stiff collar" season will
be presented In an entirely new
manner. The main ballroom at the
Hotel Lincoln and the Venetian
room will be connected by two
runways, in an attempt to handle
the crowd that ordinarily attends
the major parties of the univer
sity. Report of the committee was to
the effect that the two-ballroom
Idea would be accepted with en
thuslasum by the student body be
cause of its unusualness, its plan
of decoration, and the choice of
two orchestras for dancing. Ar
rangements have been made with
the management of the hotel to
handle a large crowd, as three
checking rooms will be available
for the students.
Feature in Main Ballroom.
Presentation of the prom girl
will take place in the main ball
room at a prescribed bed time
when activities can be centered in
one room. Dancing will be held in
both rooms and entertainment
staged in both places. According to
representative student and faculty
members of the Ida of a double
party would be met with approval
due to the maganlmlty of the oc
casion and crowd.
Due to the fact that, according
to Student council and faculty
committee rulings, no out of state
orchestra can be brought in to play
for any party at the university,
the committee felt that the new
idea for staging the Junior-Senior
Prom would be successful.
Ticket sales for the prom will
not begin before Feb. 24 and may
be sponsored by activity organiza
tions on the campus. Definite an

Installing Ticker to

Reports from the 1930 Corn

indicated that the limited space
for junior and senior pictures in
the yearbook is rapidly becom

Junior photos was cut In third
Tuesday when one of the three
available spaces was taken by
a junior student.
The Daily Nebraskan office,
anxious to keep up on the cur

has suggested that a ticker be
Installed In the Nebraskan edi

Favor Publication of News
Of Sorority Parties in
Head of Student Council,
Innocent and Barb Give
That the panhcllenic ban on pub-
liclty for bocinl events of sorori
ties should be iirteu Is the expan
sion of opinion of seven of the
right presidents of sororities who
were interviewed yesterday, mak
ing a total of eighteen who favored
the revision of the present ruling.
Although Maxine Mathers,
president of Pi Beta Phi. doca not
favor the policy of sororities striv
ing to outdo each other for the
sake of publicity, she sees no rea
son for its being withheld from the
columns of The Nebraskan .
"As 1 see it, publication of ac
counts of sorority parties will do
no barm, unless they take up too
much space." stated Ruth Pilling,
Alpha Chi Omega president. Miss
Pilling advocates the revision of
no harm, unless they take up too
tut Ion to make publication per
missible. Rule Reasonless.
That anything which Is a part
of the university may rightly be
published In the university daily is
the belief of Kathryn Bauman
president of Kappa Delta, and of
Frances Robinson, Sigma Delta
Tau officer. Accounts of such
events have a definite news value
sttaed Miss Robinson.
"I don't see any h:u-m in its

Those Given Now Will Last
Three Years Instead
Of Merely One.
A new ruling governing special
certificates authorized by law of
the 1929 legislature was announced
by State Superintendent Taylor. It
is to the effect that certificates is
sued this year will be valid for
three years instead of one year.
All applicants must bave earned
a minimum grade of 70 percent
with an average of SO percent.
This means the applicant s prep
aration will be given a definite
grade. This grade will be averaged
with the grade earned in the dem
onstration of their ability together
with the grades earned in their
preparatory courses. This must
average 60 percent with no grade
below 70 percent.
Another rule provides that the
certificate may be renewed by
earning twelve semester hours of
college credit, including three
hours in education. This require
ment is identical for all other cer
tificates issued by the state super
intendent of public instruction.
Examinations will be held at the
office of the state superintendent
July IS and Aug. 29 this year, and
Jan. , 1931. The fee for issuance
of tbe certificate is one dolar. The
expense of the examination snail
be prorated among the applicants.

Marjorie Williams, Omaha, is the

any university coed is free to en

last semester.
Players Eat and Eat, Audience Gets
Hungrier and Hungrier at New Play
Food and more food! That is
what those who are taking part
in the University Tlayers produc
tion of "Enter Madame" get. A
real meal is served on the stage,
and to all appearances it is more
than a meal. It Is a banquet.
"Stage property and stage scen
ery is worked out on the theory
of illusion," declared Robert
Reade, stage manager for the
players. "Everything on tbe stage
is prepared with the specific pur
pose of making the individual who
is sitting in the last row think
that he is gazing upon a room in
which he might live himself."

"I don't understand what is
