BEBflMG OF THE REGEriTS
They Transact Lots of Business in
CONSIDER OVER 100 ITEMS
Let (he Contract for tho School ol Mechanic
Arts Increase Importance- ol Summer
School Appropriate lor Dairy School.
The n gents of tho University hold
their nnniiul winter session during tho
past wti'U. Tlio eununicd Tuesday
afternoon at 3 o'clock itntl closed tholr
labors '1 humility afternoon, after hav
ing transacted " onormous amount of
business Altogether souiQthlng ovor
a lmntlivil ItoniB wore acted tti)on.
The two features of tho session woro
the subjects of hog cholera and tho
summer school. A communication was
rcml from Secretary of Agriculture
Wilson, who recognized tho University
as n pionilnont experiment Btutlon In
the Hiilijfft of hog cholera, and ho
promised hlH co-oporntlon with tho
University In this mater. This Ih re
pirded as the culmination of tho work
of ... cr:il years to secure with ua tho
co-operation of tho federal govern
ment. U Ih iiIho u deserving tribute to
our station, which now holtlB tho rec
ord nmnni; all states on hog cholera
experiments, and our station is a path
finder in that regard. Whon It Is con
sidered that tho losses from hog chol
era aggregate millions of dollars an
nually, tho Importance of tho experi
ments may ho easily recognized.
By the action of the regeutB tho sum
mer school now becomes nn estab
lished part of tho University and will
bo regarded simply as tho summer term
tot tho Unlverfll,tytl, Thus tho U".ftP.r"
slty will In reality bo open all tho your
round. This will bo of great sorvlco to
the teachers of tho state, and also to
our own students, who can gain credit
during the summer as at any other
time. There will ho as many depart
ments represented as possible and tho
work will lie mainly collegiate in char
acter. Another matter acted upon which
will be of Interest to tho students Is
the changes In tho gymnasium. Alter
ations will ho made so as to permit of
the building of a baso ball cage. Tho
luniiion, lockers, and ball trough In
Hie bowling alley will bo removed and
a new partition will bo put in llvo

tho hands. Tho ball used Is Inflated,

baso ball and leather covered. Tho
game consists In volleying It to and
fro ovor a not six feet high. A point
Is scored against tho team allowing It
to touch tho floor after It Is onco

The gamo of basket ball has been
engaging the attention of the Univer
sity public during tho, past week, and
though tho crowds which wltnossed
tho championship sories Monday and
Tuesday nlghtB woro not large, yet
they Boomed to enjoy tho sport. They
wore generous in tholr npptiuiRo and a
good play was novor allowed to pass,
Monday night tho teams from tho 8
and 11 o'clock divisions contested.
Tho teams wore just about ovonly
matched and the result of tho gamo
was a conjecture until tho roforeo'B
call of time. The score then stood 12
to U In favor of tho 11 o'clock class.
During tho first half tho 11 o'clock
men showed up bettor than their op
ponents. They played fast and hard
and the score stood 10 to 5 in tholr
favor at the call of time. Captain
Sayer's men braced up In tho Becond
half and only permitted two goa'B
from fouls to bo scored against them,
at the siinie time securing six polnttf
themselves. For tho winners Placok
played the best all around gamo. Ho
played all over the Hold, while watch
ing his position closely. Ho mndo
Bomo pretty passes, from which goals
were easily thrown. This was Placek's

for some time, as ho loft for his homo

THE SECOND GAME.
Tho game Wednesday oyonlng be
tween Yoder's team and tho 5 o'clock
men was probably ' more lnterestnr
to watch than Monday's contest. This
was duo mostly to tho superior play
ing of tho 5 (('clock men who aro all
around athletes, tho majorty of tliomi
also being old players. Tho manner In
which tho two Andreson boys played
was especially good. They played tho
positions of guards, and frequently
cnrrlod tho ball to tholr forwards,
down tho wholo length of tho flold.
Tho 11 o'clock men woro greatly weak
ened by tho Iohh of Placok. Hopowoll
was forced to play forward a posi
tion which ho has never played beforn
and Hidden played guard In Hope
well's placo. HeldenV provlous basket
ball oxporlonce is limited to twenty
minutes, which ho played during a
class game. However, ho put up a.
strong game all the way through and
worried his forward all tho tlmo.
At tho ond of tho first half the scoro
stood 9 to 3 In favor of the 6 o'cloolc
men. Tho "3" being mndo In thrown
During tho second half the result
of tho game was In doubt until two
minutes before Iho call of tlmo.
Yodor succeeded In throwing ovory
goal from a foul whon ho was glvon a.
chance, and llopowell's brilliant goal
from tho Hold brought tho scorn to
"it and." It was just four minutes
heforo tlmo was called that tho 5
o'clock men took a torrlblo braco and
succeeded In scoring four goals from
tho field to tholr opponents' one, thlis

and Captain Shedd, of tho foot ball
team, will leave for Kansas City,
whore thoy will represent this Univer
sity at the annual meeting of tho

business to be transacted will be to

to arrange tho schedulo for noxt year.
As the schedule will bo mndo out as
usual. Nebraska will havo no homo

able, however. Tho position of Iowa
In tho league will bo taken up. IE
that unlrerslty has a representative
thoro the permanent oxlstonco of tho
loaguo vill probably bo established.
If tho Missouri management can come
to terms with Iowa nil will bo well;
If not the league will probably go to
pieces. However, tho four univorsltles
have so much In common, nre so near
ly equal In enrollment, curricula, etc.,
nnd present such good conditions for
tho maintenance of n league that It Is
not thought that a llttlo quarreling
will break it up.
This event would not be disastrous
for Nobraskn, as tho Thanksgiving
gano Is n fixture and Minnesota nnd
probably Wisconsin would enter Into
a league with us and Iowa.

Tho event tended to arouse moro
genuine collego enthusiasm than any
meeting which has taken place thla

playors mot chancellor and professors

a desire not only to see that their
studying should continue to bo na

that their foot ball playing should bo
