Her Little Hand.
I held her little hand in mine,
The hand I loved so well;
And how I loved her face divine
I vainly tried to tell.
And as we spoke of hopes so bright,
And both our futures planned,
I held her little hand so tight,
I held her little hand.
But, O, how much I was deceived,
My days of bliss were short,
For all my tender notes received
An airing in the court.
And now my darling cuts a swell
On damages so grand,
She played her little hand so well,
She played her little hand.

We are very sorrv to note the
dcaln Gf Edgar Harmon, a
member ot the juniur ciass,
which occurred Friday evening,
January 19. Snort services were
held Saturday morning at 'the 1
home of his sister, Twelfth and
R streets, where he had lived.
The remains were then taken to
the home of his parents at Au
burn, accompanied by student
friends. Mr. Harmon was a
capable and estimable young
man, and the students of the Law
School extend their sympathy to
his bereaved parents.
An important and, strangeMq-'
say, peaceful meeting of the Ath
letic association was held last
Saturday at 1 1 o'clock. It was
decided to accept the oiler of
the Kansas City Athletic club
for an interstate field-da' if they
would alter their condiion slight
ly. They offer the colleges,
Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, Ne
braska, sixty-five per cent uf the
net receipts. It is the opinion of
the Nebraska A. A. that this
should be made sixty-five per
cent of the gross receipts or a
guarantee of" expense;. Some
changes were suggested in the
program. It was thought best
to omit the pole-vaults, the re
lay race, and putting the 56
pound shot. This would leave
the 50 and 100 yard, the quar
ter mile, half mile, and mile
runs, the standing and run
ning broad and high jumps, put
ting the 16-pound shot, throwing
the 16-pound hammer rtnd hur-
die race. Boxing and wrest-
count for ints cup
will be given to the college win
ning most points.
A motion was made to appoint
a committee to draft a new con-
stitution for the association. This
constitution is to put the general
supervision of athletic afiairs
into the hands of an advisory
board composed of members of
the faculty, the alumni and the
association. This would take ef
fect next year.
