retained, the college winning the
cup three successive limes will
keep it as permanent property.
As wsts anticipated Missouri
would consent to no pooling ol the
.thanksgiving games. Oi course
ll is very natural mat Kansas and
Missouri should not wish to pool
lor . i' gide receipts ill Kansas
City, as they iire very much larger
ilian ihe leceipls ol Iowa and
.Nebraska at Omaha, the league
should by all means not be broken
up lor such a minor consideration.

It will readily bo beon that this

Kansas on our own grounds and
tho Missouri game at Omalm, prac

Tho prospect for ono of tho
licreesl contests between tho barbs

enjoyed for soino time is very
bright for this afternoon at 1
o'olook. At this important hour
tho election of officers and dele
gates of tho local Oratorical asso

are working hard, tho frats loss

tho Univorsity, tho color company
for this year is company "B."
Las! .June, bnforo admiring
thouands(), Company "IV swept
up the Held of tho competitive
drills amid deafening applause,
an easy winner. The Omaha cup,
that beautiful trophy won by
Company "A" in Omaha in 1 ,
was theirs. They had scored
higher than any company had ever
done. In other wonts they were
right "in it". '1 hat night the
company ate ice cream on Dixon
the gallant captain. They smoked
the peace pipo (doe Beardless)
around tho big boulder; they
yelled: they went wild; they had
spasms (ol joy).
And ihe other cadet stood
around in a da.o and stared en
viously ill Co. 'U"
Company "1'' also won the ar
tillery guidon. This year there
were promoted from Co. "IV
two captains and two lirst ser
geants, showing what the victory
meant to tho individuals.
And so the members of this
year's company have decided to
celebrate by giving a military

Mrs. Bryan will Speak.
At the present time a now char
ter for tho city of Lincoln is about
to bo prosontoxl to the legislature.
It is therefore opportune that tho
political economy club of the State
University has secured two ad
dresses on municipal questions to
bo given at its next meeting, Wed
nesday, Jan., 2tf, sit 8 p. in., in
room 8. The lir&t address will be

bo followed' by a paper by Miss
Mary L. Jpnes on ''Corruption in
City Government." All are in
vited to attend.
That Senior Hat covers a
Tho Horticultural Exhibit.
On last Tuesday afternoon the
mooting of the Nebraska Horticul
tural Society began its midwinter
session in room 11, Nebraska Hall.
Long tables wore built and plates
by the hundred were soon displayed
containing apples of every descrip
tion, color and size. There wore
yellow apples and red tipples and
speckled apples. Apples that made
one's mouth Wider to look at. In
looking id the splendid exhibit one
would never suppose that there
had been a drouth in the stale. The
tables looked like they had boon
sot for a least to Pomona. Beauti
ful palms lent it tropical appear
ance to the place, and the lucioiis
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 to Temptation"
and like admonitions thill it was
possible to retain tho exhibit. Some
waggish student, with no fear of
consequences in his soul, wrote lit
tle signs, such iis "Take One,"
"Help Yourself," and put them
on the templing plates of apples.
Soon after these signs wont up the
overcoat pockets of some ol the
students bulged suspiciously when
they left the room.
1 he sturdy farmers came with
all their unsophisticated iiirs and
discussed the weighty subject of
the manner in which to raise the
dill'erent sorts of apples, how to
prevent blight and disease from
destroying the trees, and other
matters interesting only lo growers
A few ilowors wore on exhibition
along with a largo collection of
ptil ins. After ii prosperous and
well attended session the meeting
closed on Thursday night. The
apples wore packed away and the
tables dismantled, and tho exhibit
was a thing of the past.
Mr. Barrett has just received ii
cane from John (i. Goss of Bollvue
Nob. There is nothing specially
noticeable about tho cane until its
history is found out. It was carv
ed from the wood of the old trad
ing fort built at Bollvue in 1S10.
Mr. Barrett thinks it a valuable
addition to tho historical museum.

Logan Foutanelle tho last chief of

TO MAKE A REVISION
Mooting of tho Athlotic Asso
TO CHANGE THE CONSTITUTION
Objoottonablo Poniuros of liloctlnff
0rflcar8 to h clono Awny with
Thore will bo a mooting of tho
athletic association Tuesday at 1 p.
m. Tho object is to take somp no
tion looking to si revision of the
constitution. This matter has boon
talked of for some time as ii great
deal of clamor and grumbling has
arisen at various stages in tho his
tory of athletics in the U. of N.
over the. election of ollieors for the
'various associations. Some plan to
take away the power of the college
politician is to he devised, and any
one who has si plan is requested to
make the same known.
One. measure that hits been pro
posed is to elect a hoard to consist
of nine members, throe from thy
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 bo legally done without its
approval. These members arc to
bo selected by a majority of the
students present. Another plan
is the adoption of the rules which
wore published by the Nkiiuaskax
;is "suggestions" hist December.
There are quite a number of them
but al! will apply very littingly to
tho condition ot athletics in tho
Another importiint thing to be
decided is a dido for tho field day
exorcises, the appointment of com
mittees, etc. It is thought every
one can be present who will, id this
hour, but thore is so much to be
done, it is feared' that it will have
to be protracted unless expediency
is exercised. It has been suggest
ed that many of these things should
be considered before, so that
iill will bo prepared tor 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 Ciiite" in Ashland about Jan.

year by the Harvard Dramatic
Club in Boston, over which the
critics raved. The hitter is ono of

doubtedly a social sis well as a
It is to bo hoped that when the
club appears bejore it Lincoln audi

turn out and give the club tho sup
port to which it is justly entitled,

Tho oflicors of tho Oigani.ation
are: I. M. Bout ley, president; Maud
Shaw, secretary; Mrs. Manning,
director; Fred C. Cooloy, manager.
The Banjo Club.
Tho Univorsity has ait last a real
banjo club. It is not a club of two
or throe mandolins, a guitar, and a
couple of banjos as was the club of
last year, which callod itsolf n
"banjo club,''' but it is composed
of two banjoanrircs, live banjos, a
pioillo banjo and two guitars.
The men are all old players and
their progress under Mr. Planque
of the Conservatory has been truly
remarkable. Tho glee club will
have to look to its laurels in earn
est, for the banjo boys intend to
play second to no musical club in
