CONG It ESS I ON A L DEBATES.
A valuable addition has recently been
made to the library by the American his
tory department. It Is a set of the con
giosslonal debates covering the time from
1KM to 1M7. This gives the library a com
plete record of the proceedings of congress
from the formation of the confederacy to
the present time with the exception of
a few missing volumes of the congress
ional Globe. Tho period previous to the
formation of the constitution Is covered
by the secret Jurnals, the record of the
period from 1787 to 1SJI, Is found In the
Annals of Congress; this Is follwed by
tht new set, the congressional debates,
running from 1X37. Then follows the con
gresslonul Globe, until 1837, and the record
brings the proceedings up to tho present
lime. In addition to tins mere is ivemon s
Abridgment of the Debates of Congress,
i mining from 17K7 to 1SS0.
The library at tho present tlmo receives
all the government publications of wbat
cvor nature. All these together give stu
dents In American history a tine oppor
tunity to do original work, and Professor
Caldwell sues to It that the materials are
Tho following petition Is being circul
ated and very generally signed by the
students and Instructors.
Wo the undersigned Instructors and
students of tho university of Nebraska,
do hereby petition that the honorable
body of legislators, recognize that the
sentiment of the student body has been
misrepresented by a "rtaln petition em
anating from a few students who are ad
verso to the gamo of football.' Tbo under
signed take this opiKirtunlty to respect
fully urge that no ofllclal action ho taken
against the gamo which has become such
an Institution In college life. The rules of
this game are sure to undergo such
changes and modifications as to remove
any and all real or Imaginary objections-
Hespect fully submitted by the undor
slgned petitioners to tho consideration of
the legislature o tho state of Nebraska.
Tbo above petition was drawn up to off.

Manager Oury and Captain Hhedd. dur
ing tbo past week, havo been eudiuvorlng
to get an audience before the commit
tot to which the bill bus been referred. It
If. their Intention to prppose an amend
ment, which will remove tho objectlonablo
features of the game, from the point of
view of the legislators. They want to
amend It so as to icqulro Unit every mnn,
beforo ho goes Into a ganio of football,
havo a certlllcate from a doctor as to bis
physical condition. Another clause Ih to
make It a misdemeanor for any team to
use "mass" play, during tho progress of
the game. It Is thought that mich changes
can bo made In tho bill, If the legislat
ors, listen to fairness.
Tho football bill has not yet appeared
for llnal action. It waK referred back to
tho committee for nmindmcnts, but tho
committee could see no way In which to
change the bill and yet have It gain the
end for which It wns llrst intended. It
has been placed on general file and will
come up In its regular order. It Is now
very evident that the bill cannot pass.
Speaker Gafllln who Introduced tho mens
lire, said that It would probably have to
be modllled and amended before It could
pass. This Is also tho opinion of mnny of
tho members and now that It Is to come
up for final action wltiiout such amend
ments, the prospects for the bill becom
ing a law are rather dubious.
