Battalion Notes.
Lieutenant Pershing spent Mon

prepared their tactics' lesson. .
For some unaccountable reason

which tho 'Varsity Killed cherished
for a few sweet moments has fallen
It was announced last Wednesday

Tho Horticultural Exhibit.
On last Tuesday afternoon the
mooting of the Nebraska Horticul
tural Society began its midwinter
session in room II, Nebraska Hall.
Long tables wore liuilt and plates
by the hundred were soon displayed
containing apples of every descrip
tion, color and size. 'I hero were
yellow apples and red apples and
speckled apples. Apples that made
one's mouth water lo look at. In
looking at the splendid exhibit one
would never suppose that there
had been a drouth in tho stale. Tho
tables looked like they had been
set for a feast to Pomona. Beauti
ful palms lent a tropical appear
ance to the place, and the lucious
fruit was templing enough for the
Apple-hungry people crowded
the exhibit, and it was only by
posting up signs containing the
legend, "Yield Not lo Temptation"
and like admonitions that it was
possible to retain tho exhibit. Some
waggisli student, with no fear of
1 1 1
consequences in his soul, wrote lit
tle signs, such as "Take One,"
"Help Yourself," and put them
on the templing plates of apples.
Soon after these signs went up the
overcoat pockets of some ol the
students bulged suspiciously when
they loft tho room.
'the sturdy farmers came with
all their unsophisticated airs and
discussed the weighty subjects of
the manner in which to raise the
diU'erent sorts of apples, how to
prevent blight and disease from
destroying the trees, and other
matters interesting only to growers
of fruit.
A few llowors wore on exhibition
along with a largo collection of
palms. After a prosperous and
well attended session the meeting
closed on Thursday night. The
apples were packed away and the
tables dismantled, and the exhibit
was a thing of tho past.
Historical Notes.
Mr. Barrett has just received a
cane from John G. Goss of Bollvuo
Nel). There is nothing specially
noticeable about jtho cano until its
history is found out. It was carv
ed from the wood of the old trad
ing fort built at Bellvue in 1S10.
Mr. Barrett thinks it a valuable
addition to tho historical museum.

There will lie a meeting of tho
athletic association Tuesday at 1 p.
m. Tho object is lo take somp ac
tion looking to a revision of tho
constitution. This matter has boon
talked of for some time as a great
deal of clamor and grumbling has
arisen at various stages in tho his
tory of athletics in the U. of N.
over tho election of ollicors for tho
various associations. Somo plan to
take away the power of the col lego
politician is to bo devised, and any
one who has a plan is requested to
make the same known.
One measure that has been pvo
posed is to elect a board to consist
of nine members, three from tho
students, three from the alumni
and three from the faculty. This
board is to have the say of "yes"
or "no" to any action taken by tho
association or any of its organiza
tions, or in other words, nothing
can be legally done without its
approval. These mombers aro to
1)0 selected by a majority of tho
students present. Another plan
is the adoption of the rules which
were published by the Nkhkaskan
as "suggestions'' last December.
There aro quite a number of them
but al! will apply very fittingly to
tho condition ot athletics in tho
Another important thing to lie
decided is a date for the Held day
exercises, tho appointment of com
mit tecs, etc. Jt is thought every
0110 can be present who will, at this
hour, but there js so much to bo
done, it is feared that it will have
to be protracted unless expediency
is exorcised. It has been suggest
ed that many of these things should
bo considered before, so that
all will be prepared for what is
coining. 1 bus no objectionable
measure can be railroaded through.
The Dramatic Club.
Arrangements are being made by
the manager of the Dramatic Club
to present "Chums" and "The
Open Gate" in Ashland about Jan.
2."), 1 SJ.. The former is a rollick
ing college farce, produced last
year liy the Harvard Dramatic
Club in Itoston, over which tho
critics raved. The latter is 0110 of
Charles FYohman's popular curtain
The affair at Ashland will bo un
doubtedly a social as well as a
linaucial success.
It is to bo hoped that when tho
club appears bejore a Lincoln audi
ence, the entire si udeut body Avill
turn out and give the club the sup
port to which it is justly entitled,
as strictly a representative univer
sity organization.
The ollicors of the organization
aio: J. M. Bontloy, president; Maud
Shaw, secretary; Mrs. Manning,
director; Fred C. Cooloy, manager.
The Banjo Club.
Tho University has at last a real
banjo club. It is not a club of two
or three mandolins, a guitar, and a
couplo of banjos as was the club of
last year, which called itself a
"banjo club," but it is composed
of two Imnjeanrircs, live banjos, a
picillo banjo and two guitars.
The men aro all old players and
thoir progress under Mr. Planquo
of tho Conservatory has boon truly
remarkable. The gloo club will
have to look to its laurels in earn
est, for tho banjo boys intond U,
play second to no musical club in
tho Uni.
