The barbs, the third political

AH Are Well Known.
The six athletes to enter poli
tics this fall are all well known
in the sports world. One candi
date, Bill Weir, is out for fresh
man football, but he also has an
athletic record in high school as
well as in his own family. He is
a brother of Joe and Ed Weir,
both of whom posses gridiron fame
st Nebraska, and is a member of
Delta Phi Gamma (Acacia.)
Aside from 'offering Weir as a
candidate for freshman president,
the blue shirts have included Chris
Mathis and Steve Hokuf as other
Mathis, member of Farm House,
out for sophomore presidency, has

in track and basketball.
Gammill Is Journalist
Kenneth Gammill, Delta Upsi
lon, who has thrown his hat in the
ring for senior class leader is the
only blue shirt not to be asso
ciated with sportdom. Gammill,
however, is of journalistic lean
ings, being editor-in-chief of the
1930 Cornhusker. He is also a
member of Innocents.
All except the freshman candi
date in the yellow jacket slate are
of athletic renown. One of the
athletes is .a footballer, another a

The three yellow jacket athlete

Ely has b. n at center position

squad, while Maclay has been pre

for the Scarlet and Cream cagers.
Both are Kappa Sigmas.
Tomson, a Phi Kappa Psl, has
smashed many records in the field
of track. He is one of the confer
ence leaders in broad jumping.
Due to erroneous information
i received at the Nebraskan office
regarding the affiliation of Kappa
Psi, a correction is now in order.
Kappa Psi, according to blue shirt
leaders, never did leave their
group, but have remained faithful
throughout. It was an uninten

CORNHUSKER ONE OF
Edmonds Says Some Schools
Require Students to
DRIVE FALLING BEHIND
The yearbook at the University
of Nebraska is distributed on a
much different plan from the
system followed in a number or
other universities, according to
Ed Edmonds, business manager or
the Cornhusker. At Nebraska
the purchase of an annual is
largely a matter of the student's
own volition, wnue at several
other schools compulsory pur
chase is in effect.
At this university." stated
Edmonds Wednesday, "we attempt
to put out a book of quality, a ;
book which the students will want
to buy, and a book which they I
will always want to keep, instead
of merely getting out an annual
of any kind and tben selling it by
Price Is Moderate.
The price of the annual in com
parison to the size or the school
more moderate at Nebraska
than at any other school, accord
ing to Edmonds. In a question
naire sent out by a national press
association it was found that there
are only five schools in the United
States who have a sales price be
low that or the Cornhusker. In
each of these cases the school is
smaller and the yearbook is pro
portionately less complete.
"There are thirty universities
which sell their yearbook at $ti,"
Edmonds asserted, "while seven
schools offer their book with a
$7 price tag. In that the Corn
husker has been selected as one
of the five best annuals in the
country we believe that we are
offering Nebraska students some
thing exceptional when we place
the price of our book at 0."
Convenient Finance Plan.
The plan of securing finances
for an annual is slightly amer
ent and much more convenient tor
the students at Nebraska than at
most other schools, the question
naire indicates. Twenty-rive uni
versities have compulsory assess
ments on juniors and seniors,
ranging from 2 to $7. which
must be paid in order to subsi
dize the book's publication.
In view of the easy plan ar
ranged in order that every stu
dent in the university may secure
a yearbook, Edmonds rinds It hard
to understand why the sales are
moving so slowly.
"I am sure that everyone wants
a Cornhusker. but as yei we are
behind our weekly sales quota of
1.500. which we must reach by
Saturday night or the present
plans for the book will have to
be modified," Kdmonds concluded.

W illiam. Alan Williams named to
consult the faculty committee on
student affairs in order to deter-
mine the council's Jurisdiction in
matters pertaining to parties. The
discussion concerning this matter
arose when the down town party,
to be held at the Cornhusker hotel
this weekend was brought up.
Matter Left For Faculty.
For the present the body de
cided that it would take no ac
tion on the so called Cornhusker
Fall party but would let the matter
rest with the faculty committee. I
The problem of how much campus I
organizations may pay orchestras
was also discussed but no official 1
action was taken on the matter by j
the council, inasmuch as a pre
vlous rule on the books states that :
party bands may be paid no more
than $8.00 per member as a re
muneration for musical services.
It was moved and passed by the
council that it be recommended to
the university to purchase the
signboard in front of Pharmacy
hall, now owned by the Barb coun
cil. Basis for the action was based
on the contention that the Barb
council was renting the use of the
sign board to other campus or
ganizations and the majority of
the members of the student gov
erning body did not feel that this
