would not bo called "upon to select
the first list of names.
It has been suggested that local de
bating clubs and public speaking
classes agree upon some plan of se
lecting a certain number of contest
ants. A more satisfactory provision must
be made for placing the debating asso
ciation on a firmer financial basis. A
reasonable fee should be paid by each
contestant. Last year the deposit of
?1 was returned to those who failcu to
get places. This plan was not ade
quate to meet necessary expenses.
We must entertain Kansas and Col
orado debaters this year and more
funds must bo provided. The outlook
for a successful debating season is
very encouraging, the personnel of
each of the clubs being good.

HAVE YOU CALLED
Editors Nebraskan-Hcsporlan: Dear
Sirs I note your issue of October
10, in which you say that there is gen
eral satisfaction concerning the ap
pointment of officers for the cadet bat
talion. I wish to contradict this, as 1
have heard very many complaints.
As you say, the appointments have
been made in regular order of promo
tion, but I wish to say that the fra
ternities got all the big appointments,
and, in fact, nearly all. This brings
us down to the root of the evil. The
way the start of the regular order of
promotion is made is by appointing
corporals and nine-tenths of the offi
cers and non-commissioned officers
now belong to tho fraternities. Be
sides this, in tho selection of tho cor
porals at this time, any cadet who has
drilled here before may be selected,
tho choice being devolved on those
who are most efficient in drilling
squads. Now, I find on investigating
that nine-tenths of the men who are
drilling squads are "frat" men, and
they are tho same ones who drill tho
new men every evening,
I speak this as an interested out
sider and say that the fact of the fra
ternities controlling not only the cadet
battalion, but also the foot ball and
base ball management, is a disgrace to
the university. Yours truly,
FRANK M. BROWN.
PALLADIAN GIRLS ENTERTAIN.
During tho week the Palladiau boys
received neat invitation cards, stating
that' the Palladian girls would be at
home to them in the society hall Sat
urday at 5:30 o'clock.
The hall was tastily decorated and
converted for the time Into a parlor
with comfortable rocking chairs and
lounges in abundance. Fifty Palla
dians were present and some ten In
vited guests. The evening was pleas
antly spent in social converse and In
partaking of light refreshments. Ices,
candles, nuts and wafers were served.
Rena Alderman and Florence Edith
Payne presided over the punch bowl.
The evening throughout was an ex
ceedingly bright and enjoyable one to
all who participated. Before parting
the merry crowd gathered about the
piano, as their custom Is, and sang
some favorite college songs.
To the Palladian girls is due all
honor and credit for the successful ac
complishment of their brilliant undertaking.
