Leaguo Tho Meeting.
Tho iinniiul mooting of tho delegates of
tha western Interstate football league,
met at Kansas City December 1!). 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. Professors S!mmi continues that,
under any circumstances It will bo Bovcr
al years before Iowa will piny Missouri
on hor own grounds. Ho Implies that
the annual Thanksgiving gamo between
Nebraska and Iowa will bo hold as UBUal

If she sootns so disposed. 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.

of tho league won him the good will of

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

'hero Is to bo no change In tho selection

upon. This will do away with all tho
unnecessary squabbling which takes place
just before each gnmo .
The following schedule was adopted:

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.

Regents Modest in Their Demands
upon tho State Legislature.
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.
