NOTES AND COMMENTS.
A BOXER OUTBREAK.
Hostilities have begun and from now
on, until the class of 1901 leaves the
university there will be constant war
fare between it and its rivals, the class
The skirmishers aro out and already
there has been somo desultory firing
from both sides. The lines are closing
in slowly but steadily and very soon
tho campus will ring with the echoes
of awful strife.
The seniors "knocked tho chip off
the shoulder" of tho class of '02 .hen
they toro tho Junior flag from the li
brary wall, and now it is up to the
juniors to assert their independence.
One attempt has been tried but
"With what innocence did Tukey read
that note asking him to call ut the
mailing room in the basement, and
what light steps carried him into the
awful darkness of that lower hall!
THE TUKKY COLLAR.

He was almost there, "but what won
drously long arms reached out from
the inky pit and circling themselves
about the fair senior' waist, drew him
choking and scuffling Into the recesses
of the lower regions. He returned, but
jwhat a transformation! Instead of
that wondrously glorious smile, which
spreads In all directions from his ra
diant countenance, behold u monstrous
Chinese convict collar about his neck,
bearing the inscription "This Is the
man who swiped the Junior flag."
He and his deligbtcd captors start
ed on their way to pay their respects
to the admiring and astonished public
in chapel, but It was not to be.
Tuke was not courting publicity Just
then and hiked off on a D. T. to find
some of his class mates. Why he
'sought fcr seniors In the Y. M. C. A.
rooms, and how be knew where the
rooms are will never be known, but
being the nearest room there abouts it
may have first "struck" his mind.
There he found a number of Com
pany "A" men, who were faithful to
their chieftain. With the aid of crow-bar-and-chlsel
ihey managed to break
the lock and set the prisoner free.
When a reporter of the Ncbraskan
Hesperian approached Mr. Tukcy on
the subject of what he and his class
would do, he replied In words which
would not look well in print.
Thus Is the history of the first scrap.
It will not be the last one for secret
rumors are afloat of dark plots forming
under the wise guidance of wiser sen
ior heads, which will astonish and
durafound tho juniors.

Tho s. & c. association met Fri
day in tho old chapel. A very inter
esting and instructive program was
rendered. Hit. billy iieakt tho editor
in chief presided. Mr. C. C. North tho
secretary was absent on a hunting trip
trying to find some more members of
the association. Mr. F. K. Nellson act
ed as secretary during his absence.
Mr. Hart announced that the first
number on the program was tho elec
tion of Mr. J. A. Duff as president of
the association, vice Magulre resigned.
Mr. r. nans vessel nominated Mr. Duff
who was unanimously elected. The
noes were not called for on this ques
tion. Mr. Duff ascended tho dais and
read an Interesting but somewhat
lengthy speech of acceptance which
was in part as follows, '"Gentlemen of
the association, To say that I am sur
prised by this unexpected election
which you have contered upon me does
not express It. I feel that I must con
gratulate tho association upon the ex
cellent cholco which it has made. This
act marks a new era in the advance
ment of our glonous association. As
was said so feelingly in tho little
motto in our last edition, our associa
tion Is indeed a "student's paper
democracy," a paper democracy in
every sense of the word. By this little
device, we have succeeded in building
up our circulation and at the same
time keeping the control of the paper
in the hands of those who know and
love it best. The s. & c. ha3 given us
good service, it may not be as good
as some other university papers but
It is good enough for us."
Mr. Duff's speech covered twelve
closely typewritten pages and as we
have already stated was Interesting in
The next number on the program
was a Financial Report: r. hans
Mr. vessel spoko as follows, "Ath I
look at tho intelligent ana thcrene
fathethes of thoth prclhent today, I
realithe that you are the tbamc crowd
that wath here latht time. I had
thinthercly hoped that we thould
thucthecd In making a few moro con
versions to the faith beforo thith
time. Our finanthial condition ith
eckthcllent there being now in the
theathury the thum of thirteen dol
lartbs and thirty theven thenths. A
new pair of throutherths hath been
purcbathed for the editor in chief and
a new pair of thox for the buithneth
manager of which articles both were
badly in need. Tho editor in chief
hath thruck for a new pair of tohx
altho but it wath not deemd betht to
indulge in any more luxcrics until we
got tbome moro cath on hand."
The next number on the program
was the election of an associate editor
to take the place of Mr. W. J. Hunting,
Mr. vessel nominated Mr. Dan Har
rison. Then Mr. Heart who did not
have a copy of tho printed program
nominated two more. This caused a
temporary consternation in the ranks
but the difficulty was finally gotten
over by electing ill three. Mr. Peter B.
Weaver then volenteered a few re
marks and tho meeting adjourned.
These meetings aro attracting a
great deal of attention and tho attend
ance 13 rapidly increasing twenty-one
being present at this meeting against
only 18 the last time. It is hoped that
the number of conversions will reach
24 by the next meeting.
