on tho necessity of having tho students
of the University fully understand what
constituted an amateur athlete. Ho Bald
that somo of our students through care
lessness, but mostly through Ignorance,
oftentimes committed offonses which
would debar thorn from competing in tho
ranks of tho collcgo amatour. Ho showed
how necessary It was that studonts should
fulHuundcrstand the term and keep thorn
from doing things which would cast re
flection upon the methods of tho Univer
sity of Nebraska in competition, with other
colleges In athletic affairs. Tho result of
tho talk was u motion that Dr. Hastings
be Invited to give a lecture somo time In
tho near future at chapel tlmo upon this
subject. Dr. Hastings seemed to think
tho motion a good ono and will undoubt
edly consent to accept tho Invitation to
mnko tho address.
Tho matter of tho election of basoball
captain wns brought up nnd discussed
generally. Tho bourd seems disposed to
go at tho matter In a Junt way and will
attempt to harmonlzo any contrary feel
ings that may exist among tho members
of tho club. This will bo accomplished
by having tho players all present at a
meeting of tho board, and tho will of tho
majority being exprcssod, tho matter cun
bo straightened out. Tho mntter brought

THE PREP. SCHOOL.
There seoms to bo qulto a genernl mis
understanding In regard to tho prepara

Th 3 gonoral belief is that thtf old iffiitra

is not tho case. The oxnet facts In tho
matter aro these. On nccount of tho sus
pension of (the free high school law In

studies of last year, but In no sense hns
tho old prepp'otory school been reopened,
as no new studies lmvo been opened up.

ho has set as to tho ability of tho faculty.

pluco Miss Reynolds hold last year. Mrs.
Jones hns tho reputation of being ono of
tho best pianists In tho west. Tho In
creased attendance mndo It necessary for
Director Kimball to make a flying trip
to Chicago to secure an addition to tho
faculty. Ho returned after having- on
goged the services of Miss Marian Treat,
who was Induced to come here and give
up her position In a Chicago collcgo.
