Tho reprcsentntlvo from Iowa was not pres et, nnil according to the constitution. uiiInh each tnvmbor has a delegate to the nniuinl meeting, such member Ih to b droppotl from tho league. Ah Iowa failed to show up, tho rules of the con itltutlou wero compiled with, but al lowances wero made In arranging tho Slmms of Iowa. Mr, Slmms sayfl that Iowa's absence from tho mooting wnB un intentional. Their mnnngor, Mr. Prion was sick at tho tlmo and tho matter was not broitKht to tho attention of anybody. He says that they consider that Missouri has forfeited her right to momborBhlp, and that Iowa cannot come Into tho li'MKUc unless satisfactory terms aro Riven them by Missouri In settlement of n claim Iowa has against tho Tlrfors. Un less Missouri and Iowa eomo to a mulunl agreement, the claim cannot bo Bottled, as this should have been brought up at the league mooting As It wnB not, It looks probable that Iowu must lose It by default, with nobody to blamo but her self.

Uuslncss was then transacted In the regular routine. Somo amendments of minor Importance were made to the constitution. Ono of these Is the definition of the word "com pensation." This was dollned as Includ ing railroad fare, to or from the place of pluylng, and board at the training tables, but this must not exceed tho leg ular rate of student board. Tho claim of Nebraska against Mls uori was brought up. Nebraska claimed that Missouri fraudently kept buck sixty-five dollars which should have been ap plied In paying tho xepensea of the visiting team. Mr. Oury compromised by accepting ono half of tho amount. Ho was given a duo bill against Missouri, which In- cannot at present realize on. The pennant was olllclally awarded to Iowa, Kansas second, and Nebraska third. The following olllcers for next ear, were elected. President; Dr. II. Aers, Missouil, vice-president, J. 1. Cameron, Nobruskn; secretary-treasurer. I. K Moody, Kansas. F. D. Cornell was re-elect. d manager without opposition as hi Impnrtlal management of tho affairs of tho league won him the good will of ry member In it. It was decided that Iwrcufter the man ner, ut tho beginning of tho season, should prepare a list of officials, which to bo sent to tho manager of each tea:n. Ho is to make his selections Im mediately, or mako out a now list. This ' nt back to tho manager who dotor m'nea from this who shall act as officials t tho different games. This la final and 'hero Is to bo no change In tho selection ' officials, nfter fney are once decided upon. This will do away with all tho unnecessary squabbling which takes place just before each gnmo . The following schedule was adopted: October 30 Missouri vs. Nebraska at Lincoln . November 13 Kansas vs. Nobraska at Lincoln. Thanksgiving day Missouri vs. Kansas a Kansas City, Mr. Cornell, manager of tho league Is the members of the footbnll team met in room three for the purposo of electing a captain for the ensuing year. It was a foregone conclusion us to who would Ih elected, hence nobody was disappointed and every one was pleased when it was announced that the honor had fallen to Oeoigo Shedd. There was practically an opposition and Mr. Shedd was unani mously elected. The election of Mr. Shedd together with thn fact that many of tho old players will return next year, makes our pros-IK-ots for winning the pennant exceeding ly bright. Without any disparagement to the other memlHirs of tho team It can 1). farcly said that no ono Is as much en titled to tho honor of tho captaincy aa tho person who for two seasons has filled thu position of right half back and filled It so faithfully and well. Captain Shedd has been one of the mainstays of thu team and above all 1.4 a clean and conscientious player. He Is a hard worker and docs not lose his head In the excitement of the game.- Ho Is eminently qualified for tho difficult pos ition which he has been elected to 111). The newly elected captain has tho beat wishes and support of tho students and under his wlso leadership, Nebraska can be depended upon to glvo a good ac count of herself and be closo to tho top when tho season ends.

Respectfully submitted AMY C. BRUNER J. W. 8 E ARSON Chairmen. ARE NOT ASKING FOR MUCH Regents Modest in Their Demands upon tho State Legislature. EXTRACTS FROM THE BUDGET Miss Mary I Jones, librarian Is ne gotiating 'for tho loan of tho Copley Prints published by Messrs. Curtis and Camer on. This exhibit will be held during Charter week in tho art rooms of the library building. Conspicuous among the collection will lo reproductions of tho mural painting in tho Boston public li brary, and a full series of prints of tho sculpture and painting now boing done for tho new building of the library of congress In Washington; The plates for Illustrations in Professor Barbour's article soon to appear In tho "University StuUles" havo arrived. The Regents Ask for Two nulldlngs, a Recitation Hall and a Dairy School Hall Appropriations from tho General Fund. Tho chancellor la prepnrlng extracts from his biennial budget In a pnmphlot form which Is to bo sent to each member of tho legislature. Concerning tho need for buildings, tho report sayBi Tho regents reluctantly nfter mature deliberation nnd caroful inspection, do cided that they must ask at tho very least for tho following buildings, In or der not to turn away Nebraska boys and girls during tho coming blennlum. Tho overcrowded condition of tho build ings uKn the campus Is actually unsan itary. Tho point has been reached whero It will bo economy in salaries to provide more space, so that professors can mako their tlmo and strength go farther. To put It in Another way, the need of a re lief building on the campus arises from tho fact that there are no rooms at present avallablo of sufficient capacity to hold tho largo classes which now reg ister In many departments. In conse quence It becomes necessary o hear the classes In several divisions, often as many as five, which require as many ad ditional: Instructors, prevents Instructors from doing proper work, and entails need less expense. Tho board voted to ask for $30,000 for tho wing of a building to afford general relief to pressuro for lecture and recl tatlon rooms, said building to be used ul timately as a departmental building for the collego at mechanical arts. Tho work at present in the collego of mechnnlcal arts, Is .only .haf opened up for lack of ftpaco. Miowood .worlc and Biqlthy in tho department of practical mechanics aro provided for, but tho metal work and foundry aro not offered becnuse thero aro no shops. Tho United States fur nishes funds for uppnratusscs but not for buildings for these purposes. Tho government expects tho whole of this collego to be opened. There aro two bills pending before congress and likely to bo passed during tho coming year, that would give our university further In structors In this college and apparatus , If wo can houso them. It becomes Im perative that our relief be so constructed that It shall be a collego for mechanic arts. Tho school for mechanic arts would also be benefited. It Is believed that people of the stato who at this par ticular time have need to study econo my upon tho development of thes re sources of tho stnte, would welcome tho erection of this building. A new building for the farm and dairy school, costing 20,000 Is asked for. Tho following Is a schedule of tho amounts per year for which an appro priation must be nsked from the general fund. (This legally comes to the univer sity for running expenses.) Repairs, $4,000; furniture and apparatus $3,500; books $2,000 fuel, gas and water, $5,600; Student labor $1,000 dairy and farm school $3,000 farmers' Institutes, $2,600 summer school, $300; expenses of inspect ing schools, $1,600. Including the appro priation asked from tho state for tho erec.lon of the two buildings, tho total amount Is $309,000. THE FINAL DEBATES. Bnker Green nnd Dennlson nro ad Judged tho Victors. Tho final debate to select our oratorn to go to Kansas, was held In tho chapel Saturday night before vacation. Tho audience was large, and at timed waxed enthusiastic.
