LAWRENCE. Kas.. Dec. 9.
The University of Kansas athletic
board after spending several hours
yesterday listening to Dean George
C.Shaad's report as faculty rep
resentative, approved his action
which led to the reinstatement of
Kansas In the Big Six.
This action, which came as a re
suit of the action instigated by
W. A. Tarr, of the University of
Missouri, seems to have definitely
brought to a close the squabble in
the conference over the subsidiza
tion of athletics. Whether or not
the action of the Kansas represen
tatives is a concession to the other
Big Six schools Is a doubtful qucs

the Cornhusker team this year will
give any opposing team quite a
run for their money. Four vet
erans, all of them capable of play
ing a high grade of basketball, to
gether with several promising re
cruits, are the men on whom Coach
Charley Black will pin his faith
duting the season.
The Huskers will have the games
with South Dakota and Pittsburgh
before vaaction, and the trip to the
west coast during Christmas vaca
tion under their belts before they
tackle the conference schedule.
THE announcement that the team
this week will make the trip
by automobile is the first indica
tion of the expense cutting pro
pram of the athletic officials.
While some may question the
transporting of the team in auto
mobiles, the members of the squad
do not seem to be taking much in
terest in the matter.
It is granted that the depart
ment will not make the trip by car
unless the school to be visited is
close and the trip will not work
any hardship on the plavers.
in the case of trips to Manhat
tan and one or two other Big Six
schools, the train connections are
so poor that it will be better to
drive than take the train. The
athletic heads are not only saving
money they are making a wise
stp in providing automobiles for
some of the trips.
MRLS' intramural spoils here at

some figures presented, there are
twice as many girls out for sports
now as in previous years, which is
The big trouble with the gals,
as well as the fraternities, seems
to be getting the members inter

snorts are newer than men's sports
and it is quite a problem to get the
coeds out for athletic teams. 1 nc
sweet, demure little things who
lounge about sorority houses can
hardly imagine themselves going
out and actually competing in a
sport. They think it destroys their
f")N plan that seems to me would
be quite effective in getting
girls out for sports would be to
establish a certain group oi re
quirements in each sport and in
stitute a letter system of some
sort. This might even be applied
mall emblems or pins might be
given the girls who "lettered" in
various sports. It would be pos
sible to make the awards so at
tractive that each member would
want to win one of them.
The trouble with the plan of giv
ing an award to the girl in a soror
ity who makes the most points dur
ing the year is this: Other girls
who do not have a chance for the
trophy or are not adapted for sev
eral sports will not try lor we
trophy. But if these small pins or
emblems were given for each sep
arate sport and were fairly hard
to win them, the girls would try
hard in each sport and plenty of
them would compete.
"THE main thing is to stimulate
sport and have them compete be

The letter system fo rathietics
here at Nebraska proves effective

feel that it is an honor to wear a

"'Look,' reply the dreamers, 'to
the cathedral at Barcelona. Work
on it now has been going on for
many years. A poor tailor and a
few friends were the real founders
of that great church, one of the
hugest in the world. A 20 cents a

among laboring people, with vol

Uils humble fund that the great

which the old world cathedrals in

Historical 'Brown Derliy Serves as
Dunce Cap for Law College Freshmen
BOULDER, Colo. The anti
quated and historical "Brown
Derby" of the law school soon is
to be mounted in glass after about
fifteen years of usage, and a new
one is to take its place.
The "Brown Derby" became a
tradition among the lawyers about
fifteen years ago, when Livingston
Farrand was president of the uni
versity. At one of the regular as
semblies, all of the freshman law
yers filed into the hall wearing
brown derbies. However, instead
of stopping at his seat, one man
with an exceptionally small head
walked up onto the platform and
placed his little derby on the ex
ceptionally large head of the presi
dent. Since this incident, it has
been customary for freshman law
students who make the dumbest
crack to wear the ''Brown Derby."
The "dummy hat" changes heads
every week.- The award is made
from a vote of the class which de
termines the dumbest remark for
the week. Although the "Derby"
appear.- to be an ink spot, it is
only the innumerable signatures
which so darken it. Upon the hat
a homelike atmosphere.
Johanna Kollmorgen, an arts and
and science sophomore from Wept
Point, said that students should
not be compelled to live in dormi
tories. "I wouldn't like to be
hurdled into a big mob of girls and
be obliged to do what they tell
you to. Students wouldn't be sat
isfied with their conditions if they
were compelled to live in dormi
tories against their will, and, be
sides, many students could not af
ford it," she said.
Prefers Smaller Units.
Mildred Bartosh, Dodge, a sen
ior in teachers college, stated that
she would not care for dormitoT
ies. "I prefer housing girls in
smaller units," she stated. Gene
vieve Jefferies, a home economics
freshman from Odell, echoed the
same opinion. "I wouldn't fare to
live in such a large congolmera
tion of girls," Miss Odell said.
She stated, however, that she
thought the present dormitories
were a mess and that she would
not like to live in one of them. If
the university erects new and bet
ter dormitories Miss Boyer stated
she believed she would like to live
Mary Oddo, a teachers college
freshman from Omaha favors
dormitories, "because it would give
you a chance to study." Several
other girls stated that they
thought dormitories would be a
good place for freshmen. Dorothy
Countryman pointed out that most
freshmen are inexperienced and
unable to make a wise choice in
selecting a rooming house. "They
do not know which houses are the
best and consequently land in the

It might be stated that the law
yers might well consider them
selves fortunate that they still
have this dilapidated relic to
mount in a glass cage for the law
library for several years ago the
precious token was stolen by the
engineers. Horace Van Valken
burgh, after keeping tbe law stu
dents in a quandary as to the
"Derby's" whereabouts for six
months or so, returned it un

the hat this year: Sidney Pleas

The new brown derby was placed
in circulation this week, according
to reports from tht law building.
The first law freshman to receive
the honor of wearing it is John
Lockley, who will exhibit it all

Fine for Freshmen.
Wilma Wittmerschehouse, Cedar
Bluff, a teachers college freshman
favors dormitories because it
would be a good place for fresh
men. Lucille Poppe, Bern, Kas.,
an arts and science sophomore, is
willing to take a chance on dormi
tories. "I have never lived in a
dormitory," she said, "but I think
I might like it." None of the girls
favoring dormitories stated that
the campus was crowded or that
present bousing facilities were in
sufficient to care for the present
Some girls stated that they were
not satisfied with the conditions
of their rooms and that most of
the houses near the university
campus were "positively shacky."
No Choice of Association.
Marie Marrow, a freshman in
the school of journalism, fears that
dormitories would allow students
no privacy. "One wouldn't haye
any choice of his associates," she
said. Miss Marrow pointed out
that students would be deprived

bers of other students. She said
that a pimllar condition existed in
sorority houses but that a girl se
lected her own sorority and bad an
opportunity to call at the house
and get some kind of opinion of

Eleanor Sammons, a junior in
the college of business administra
tion, believes that the dormitory
system would not work at Ne
braska because of tbe large and
cosmopolitan student body. De
loris Deadman, Fairbury, a teach
ers college sophomore, and Esther
Marrow believe that the dormitory
system would work a hardship up
on many students. "Lots of girls
work for their room and board and
many more students Just live from
hand to mouth, nip and tuck with
expenses. A compulsory dormi
tory ruling would compel many
girls to leave school," they said.
