TIiIr was followed by a three-Inning
game of volly ball between the morn

plnjod well, the game llunlly going to
the afternoon cIiirs by a wore of 24

The work of the. evening was closed
with the "pyramid" which reached a
height of four stories. About 250 en
joyed the exhibition and were greatly
pleased with the work.
Dr. Hastings is about to undertake
a series of unique and Interesting ex
periments throughout the state, the
results of which will be on exhibition
at the trnns-Mlssissippi exposition.
They are to lie n thorough physical
examination of the school children
throughout the state.
The work is under the auspices of
of the District Society of the Ameri.
can Association for the Advancement
of Physical Education. The work was
inaugurated by Dr. Porter of St. Louis
who has made exhaustive investiga
tions and has reached may interest
ing conclusions, which further inves
tigation seems destined to affirm.
This society has had printed four
cards. Two of them contain ques
tions on the physical appearance,
form and development of the children
male and female taken separately.
Another, intended for the parents,
has questions concerning the family,
while the fourth is for the Instruc
tion of the observers. Each child is
given a enrd to take home to Ik filled
out by its pnrents and returned the
next day. The children are arranged
in the order in which they sit. at
their desks, girls and boys separately.
The observers stand in line. Each oil
server hns one particular observation
or mensurement to make on each
child. The children pass nlong in line
before the observers. In this wny it
is expected to handle one pupil a
Pnrents are assured that no names
will be published in connection with
individual mensuremeuts and thnt no
personal defects will be pointed out
before the other children.
These measurements will afterward
be classified and from the averages ob
tained, charts and tables will be mnde
out, and will be placed on exhibition
at the trans-Mississippi Exposition.
Theso charts will show the tyie of
ench nge for the state of Nebraska,
viz: just whnt the normal child should
be nnd wil show the proper physical
basis for intellectual advancement.
For instance, Dr. Porter, in one exper
iment, took pupils eleven yenrs of age,
throughout nil grades from the flrwt to
to the eighth, nnd found that the av
erage height and weight Increased
regulnrly from those in the lower to
the higher grades. ThiB connection
between physical nnd intellectual
growth is one of many interesting

Preparations are Mug made on a
grand scale for the great game with
Kansas, which Is to take jJaee on the
campus May 30. The thirteen Inning
game at Lawrence shows how well the
teams arc matched and a hat tie royal
Is confidently looked for. Monday be
ing a holiday an immense crowd from
the city is certain and of course all
University fans will turn out to this,
the groat game of the year and cheer
the boys on to victory. Cnptain Klud
ler nnd his men are bound to take this
game and should be loyally supported
by tho students. Tickets will be on
sale Monday for only 2." cents, al
though all neighboring lnicrsltics
charge 30 cents and Manager Hyon lias
been advised to do the same, but. he
decided in view of the recent expenses
of the students to place the admission
fee within the reach of all and count
on the loyalty and interest, of the
school to held pay the expenses.
Owing to the inroad the war has
made on the b.iti'ion, th. recent,
changes necessitated by the enlist
ments nnd tho general unsettled air
among the cadets, it has been decided
not to have competitive drill this year,
As the companies have all been chang
ed over so recently, no company spirit
or enthusiam exists, and the usual in
terest taken in the competition would
be lacking. Under the circumstances
the decision to give it up seems to
have been wisest.
For much the same reason the $20
prize offered by the Farmers and Mer
chants Insurance company to the best
drilled cadet in thelKitillnn. will not
be eon test if for this spring. As many
of the best drilled eadet.s in the school
would not lw present It was not con
sidered fair to the company to decide
the matter as at first intended. For
thnt reason the contest will 1h post
poned. Owing to the near approach of the
end of drill, Major True has decided
not. to fill the vacancies caused by the
enlistment of Captains llendy and
Haggard. The first licircnants of
their companies will enmmiud for the
rest of the year.
