Clark entertained the mem bers of the boys' gynnslum classes at his home Wednesday. He furnished pleasant entertainment for them In way of new games. Fuller won the prize a dozen lead pencils for making the funniest face out of a circle, by four strokes of a pencil. A. D. Kyle was presented with a hand mirror the reward for his ability to recognize the Inrgest number of portraits of famous Imilvliliinls. Sides were than chosen and a regulation gnn?e of looTbaTft played. A blown egg served as the pig skin two tumblers at each end of tile "Held" for the goal jtosts. The force necessr ry to push the ball over the line was breath from the lungs. Everylrody got down on their hands and knees nnd "blowed" till they were dizzy. The score did not assume the dose figures a well played game on the campus would. Strawlterry Ice and cakes were afterward served. The doc tor talked about the coming gym nasium exhibition nnd made all the members of the class enthusiastic over It. Professor Nicholson has been re cently elected a member of the council of the American Chemist society. The' jtositlon is an imiKirtant one and his election Is a recognition of the profes sor's standing In the scientific world.

WHAT SENIORS ARE DOING THE USUAL PREPARATIONS Making Hontly for UotmnonoMiiont Wook -Arrangements for tho Senior l'romonndo. Tho senior class mooting Friday wns umimtnlly well attended. The order of business was the reports c.f various committees. Those committees that wore able to do so gave definite reports nnd tho more unfortunate ones re ceived a slight reproof and were asked to make haste speedily. The most Im portant committees to report were those on class play, fund scheme nnd permanent organization, and senior promenade. The reiwrt of the fund committee was placed In the Nebraska n and ac tion will bo taken upon It nt tho next meeting. .All non-subscribers of tho Nobrasknn were furnished with copies of last weok's Issue, so that Intelligent action nt least can bo taken on the re port. The promenade committee, having held several well organized meetings, was able to rejjort In good shape. A committee to arrange dates for commencement week wns appointed, nnd the meeting adjourned. A great denl of credit Is due this class for the amount of work It did In about four hours. SENIOH PROMENADE. At a meeting of tht senior promenade committee, very definite arrangements were arrived at. it was decided to hold this dance at the state houso on account of tho peculiar advantages of the hall of representatives and be cause It will be able to give due dig nity to such an event. The number of pieces of music and hc programs were decided upon. V. U. McLucas war elected master of ceremonies and Ed Adams, treasurer. No action was taken on the box scheme, but It wns 'unanimously con-ct'ted't''bi'-a good -os. A number of boxes. It Is planned, will be erected In the hall. These will be sold at auction to the different organi zations or individuals of the university. The boxes are Intended to be the par ticular stamping ground nnd feed trough that evening for Its particular purchasers, and are to be decorated ac cordingly. The number of tickets will be strict ly limited to sixty, the price of which will be J2. On sale at present writing by the committed. Misses Hnrwood, 1 ticket ts and Taylor; Messrs. McLucas. Pulls. McCarthy. Pollard. Adams. Reed, Warner. Schwarz. Dixon and Abbott. Senlo- class met Tuesday at 1030. The class has all kinds of business to at tend to and it keeps our worthy seniors busy. They have teei a little b.t slow through all their college course and now are realizing that there is but one chance left. Commencement time Is al most upon them and you had better be lieve they are hustling. Chancellor MacLean addressed this meeting. As we all know the chancellor Is an active member of the class of '9C. He spoke of his desire to become better acquainted with the members and pro posed several schemes to accomplish this end. He also asked the members of the class who desired to teach next year to call on him, for already he had been approached In his tra veiling .over the state by school trustees asking for recommendations. Hence the neces sity of a better acquaintance. The chancellor was rather handicapped In that he has had but one year to learn all about his classmates, but we trust they all know him. The fund committee's report was then considered. No amendments to the constitution as published In last week's Nebraska were made, and the scheme was voted adopted provided that the committee obtained the signatures of two-thirds of the clasB, which virtually means thai the class will be perma nently organized. SIGMA ALPHA ENTERTAIN. Mr. Ernest Haughton entertained a party of young people In the room of the Sigma Alpha Epsllon fraternity Friday evening. He was assisted In entertaining by Miss Alice Slaughter. The evening was passad In whist play ing. At 11 o'clock some mpst palatable refreshments were served.

Arln (a) "Jerusalem Thou That Kll leth the Prophets" from St. Paul, Men delssohn; (b) "An Irish Folk Song," Ar thur Foote, Amelia June Smalls. The Instrumental numbers were more enjoyable than the vocal. There seemed to be a hesitancy on the part of most of the singers so that tholr work wns slow and labored. This was less noticeable with Miss Closson and Miss Rlsser than with the others. The violin numbers were especially good. Prof. Conway McMillan lectured be fore the botanical semlnnr on Friday night. He entered Into a profound discus sion of each part of his thesis. His subject Is one that is agitating the botnnlcal world for the first time. Professor McMillan Is one of the many of whom Nebraska should be proud. He lived In Lincoln from boy hood and graduated from the univer sity In 'STi and took his second degree In the following year. He has for some years occupied the chair of botany In the university of Minnesota and has done considerable excellent work in his chosen line. The professor Is staying at the home of Chancellor MacLean. He will re main In the city a number of days. NOTICE. SENIORS. Members of the senior class will please leave orders for commencement Invitations at tho Co-Op at once. The orders must all be sent in by Monday. May i.

God lard. editor of the Engagement Ex press, iwld a visit to the university Tuesday.

"Should Divorce Laws Be Strict or Liberal'" Is the question for debate. The speakers on the affirmative will be Pearson and Burleigh, and on the neg ative, Countryman and Sayer. Professor Urace has been wearing a broad smile lately. It Is the result of a successful experiment with the X rays. A large photograph of a cat was made, every bone of Its skeleton being clearly defined. Even the eyes of the two needles employed to hold the flaps in position are discernible. Don Cameron's lunch South Eleventh street counter, 118 ADMISSION FIFTEEN CENTS THAT'S WHAT DOANE DID Hold up tho Union lloys-Thy Woro Do foncoloss Tho way Donno Re turns a Courtsoy. The second In tho series of Joint de bates between Donno college and the Union Roys' Debating club was held In tho tastily decorated Congregational church at Croto last Saturday evening, under the auspices of Donno college. About llften couples of onthuslnstle Unions took ndvontngo of tho reduced rates to attend the debate. Immedi ately after arriving at Crete tho merry company were escorted to the parlors of the Cosmopolitan by the Donne re ception commute, after which they en Joyed a delightful stroll through tho vlllngo and about tho campus In the fragrant evening air. President P. J. Magulro called the meeting to order nt S:20, and appropri ately Introduced tho debate ot tho even ing on the question: "Resolved, That too much weight has boon given to precedent in Judicial decisions in the courts of tho United States." Donno wns represented In the nlllrmntlve ot the question by Messrs. Kenogy, Reed, Hotye nnd Leos. Tho U. II. D. C. speak ers were Messrs. J. A. Magulro, Mr Guffey, Rnker and Rnrr. In substnnce, Donno maintained that the observation of precedent dulls tho faculties and shifts the responsibilities of Judges. Judges both abuse nnd misapply prece dent. Crime seeks refuge behind it; Judges fortify themselves against ab solutely wrong decisions behind prece dent, nor do they often enquire Into the precedents presented by the bar. A number of specific cases were cited to prove the folly of slavishly following precedent. In refutation, tho U. B. D. C. showed that of the three great systems of law despotic, codification, and precedent r.ystems the precedent system had made possible our national life and growth, nnd Is the only system In keep ing with our progressive system of hu man thought. Precedent Insures uni formity, maintains consistency, and In sures stability in laws relating to contracts. The question of certainty In legal contracts Is tho most vital prin ciple of organic law. Precedent may violate Isolated Individual rights, but it crystallzes the vested rights of the whole community. This system taxes all the common sense of the present Judge and Includes the common sense of all the supreme court Judges gone before. Precedent precludes and In duces the healthiest progress. The U. R. D. C. then gave specific citations to a large number of cases proving their position, and gently re minded the Doane boys that in all their citations they had given but two defi nite, specific references. On the whole, the Doane boys did not show a thorough acquaintance with the question In its widest significance, while the Union boys showed a more careful understanding, and greater resources at ready disposal. The fact that an admission of 15 cents was charged limited the audience to a very small number. Not even the Doane students turned out as they should. Little enthusiasm was shown on the part of the student body of the college and manifestly less on the part of the patrons of the city. This Is not as It should be. And It Is not as it will be when the spirit of the few faithful there gradually inspires the whole student mass. The Union crowd needed no exhorta tion to "enthuse." With colors, cheers, and yells they appropriately "backed" their worthy representatives. Their spirits were not even dampened by the 15 cents admission. On the whole the kindliest of feeling prevails toward the "Little Brother" and the Union boys look forward expectantly to the next year's series of debates. Albert Watklns entertained the class In Journalism by a very entertaining lecture Tuesday. He took the atten tion of the members from the financial part of the profession and talked of the type of manhood different phases of newspaper life developed. He set everyone thinking about this Important feature of the work.
