P. W. Meredith, instigator of the
plan for getting the sport back.

forty houses have the petitions and

movement to get the national
pastime back Into the athletic pro
gram. Freshmen students in the
college of agriculture distributed
the petitions to the houses some
time ago.
Students Favor Return.
"Despite the fact that there has
been a lull in the activity of get

all houses, the enthusiasm for the
return of the sport is not de

Thursday nieht. "We are abso

Republican Candidates for
President and State
Offices Win.
The senior law class of the Uni
versity of Nebraska registered
their opinions on the present polit
ical situation at a meeting yester
day afternoon in the law college
which resulted in a republican
landslide. The effect of this poll
is especially noteworthy due to the
fact that these men will at an
early date be themselves actively
engaged In political pursuits and
their enunications denote the
trend of a considerable portion of
our future public officials.
Bryan Fails to Score.
The official results as computed
by the president of the senior law
class. Arthur Griswold. and the
secretary, Dick Ricketts were as
follows: Hoover 22 votes, Roose

NEW YORK. Because it failed
to comply with a faculty censor

week was suspended by
H. Moore.
He had demanded that all copy

it waa not "consistent with the

Cribbina Durina Exams Is Symptom of
Common Disease,
"Cribbing on the part of college'
students is a sympton of a disease
which afflicts people in all walks
of life," said Dr. C. H. Patterson
of the philosophy department in a
talk at a joint meetiDg of two Y.
M C. A. groups, the Freshman
council and the Engineer's Huddle,
which was held in the Temple
building, Wednesday evening. "The
disease is none other than that of
a self -centered life, in other words,
an attempt to get something for
nothlcg or t gt out of life more
than is put into it."
"The business man who tries to
accumulate a fortune by putting
something over on the public, the
lawyer who charges as much as he
thinks he can get by with, the doc
tor who thinks more of himself
than he does the welfare of his pa
tients, the politician who seeks of

Auditor's Statement Not of
Immediate Concern to
School, He Says.
Declaring that warrants may
have to be registered by the state
for payments from the general
fund, Deputy State Auditor Harry
Parsons issued a warning Wednes
day that expenditures from the
fund must be cut down. Such war
rants which are issued in lieu of
cash payments bear interest and
are payable by the state as soon
a; the general fund is re-established.
University professors as state
employes would be subject to pay
ment in such manner in all prob
ability, according to Chancellor
Burnett. The possibility of such
a state of affairs was minimized,
however, by the chancellor, who
declared that since the legislature
ia to meet in such a short time,
measures would likely be taken for
meeting the emergency.
Even if such warrants were is
sued in payment, before the legis
lature meets, the chancellor said,
in all probability they would be
paid uo in a short time after the
legislature had met.
Have Been Issued in Past. j
Warrants have been issued in
times past to pay state employes,
at one time such warrants only be
ing received by banks at a dis
count. Parsons declared that the pres
ent or "term deficit" in the gen
eral fund amounts to 51,610,077.17,
based on the difference between re
ceipts of the general fund, mostly
tax collections, and expenditures
for the period July 1931 to Nov.
1 of this year.
Explaining details of the audi
tor's report. Parsons pointed out
that the balance at the beginning
of the biennium was $2,103,665.22.
Deducting $1,610,077.17 leaves a
balance of $493,489:05.

Lively Audience Expresses
Views Not Previously
The open forum and discussion
held jointly by tha three organized
political groups on the campus,
was a lively meeting in which not
only the three representative
speakers explained the stand of
their parties on present problems
but into which Ihe audience en
tered, bringing out views and ideas
that have gone unvoiced hereto
fore. Charles Gray, socialist, was the
first speaker recognized by John
Gepson, who presided as chairman.
He eave a very pointed talk in
which he did not stick to any set
procedure, delving immediately
into the heart of the issues being
debated at the present time.
The second representative, who
presented the democratic side of
the discussion, was Howard Holtz
endorf. After calling attention to
the fact that prohibition was not
an issue in the present campaign,
he proceeded to criticize the gen
eral farm board.
"Farm Board Success."
Ignoring the socialist party and
stating it has no place in the pres
ent campaign, Charles Steadman
confined his address principally to
the protective tariff, pointing out
that a high protective tariff is in
dispensable for the good or tne
country. His final statement was
that the farm board has been a
success which assertion immedi
ately started a lively discussion,

club president, will probably make

These six students were seiei-i-ed

sort of dramatic effort to the
committee, including poems, char
acter sketches and humorous
skits. They were judged on their
poise, stage appearance, voice,
reading ability and general char
acterization. Each presentation
lasted from three to five minutes.
In addition to being scholastic
ally eligible, the pledges must
produce skits before the members
of the club which meet with their
approval before they will be initi

Instructor Believes Straw
Vote of University
Not Expressive.
That the various newspaper
straw vote polls, including the Lit
erary Direst coll. show more ac
curately the trend of the ideas of
the citizens than do those staged
by universities was expressed by
J. P. Senning, chairman of the Po
litical science department. "This,"
he said, "is due to the fact that
the students voted on an ideal
standard. They think abstracted
ly, while the older people vote ac
cording to tne way uaeir mmeui-
ate interests are affected by polit
ical conditions. That is, they think
in the concrete. When the students
actually become affected by the
immediate results of the election
then they will also think in the
"Also many students vote as
their father votes. They are per
haps voting for the first time for
a president and many are partici
pating in the poll who do not have
the right to vote in the regular
election. This is probably the rea
son why there is a difference in
the results of the university and
other polls."
As to tne cnances oi jcuy.c
changing their minds immediately
before the election, Mr. Senning
said, "It ia my own beiiei mat me
great amount of energy that has
been made by political parties in
campaigning has had very little
effect in changing the minds of tne
people in their intentions to vote.
The vote next iucioj
many people is more in the nature
of a protest vote rather than a
vote for a candidate and those who
desire to nrotest have made up
their minds long ago any igu
ment is ineffective. Otherwise it
would be hard to explain the re
sults of the straw votes.

that has ever been cast will be cast

Captains and leaders for the Y.

lunch at Ellen Smith hall to turn
in results of the campaigns so far.
The time for the drive has been ex
tended to Monday, Nov. 7.
The speaker for tbe occasion
was Mrs. Green, a former Y. W.
secretary in this university and at
present a member of the board of
directors. Mrs. Green stressed that
she was talking to girls who were
sincere in their work and who be
lieve in the work of the organiza
tion. She said that in talking with
girls, the solicitors should urge
them to sacrifice something of
their worldly desires for an intan
gible thin in order to keep a char
acter building institution alive.
She continued by saying: "The Y.
W. has had a long and glorious
life here, and it cannot die." Her
speech was concluded with tha
ftmnt lhat the city Y could
do its duty much more easily if
the university x did its pan.

Every one can give if she i only

in Y. W. work had exactly $50

maanged to give S10 to the Y. W.
