Seniors Decide to Do Away with Cap
aad Gown fomnieive.
meat Week.
Are caps and gowns a necessary part of a
high sphool student's graduation? Is tbe
question which was most hotly debated
In the senior class of the Omaha High
school. In fact, this minor question re
ceived more discussion than questions
which were of far more Importance to the
class as a whole.
More sensible counsels prevailed In this
weighty point of appearance of the class
during Its commencement week and exer
cises, and It was decided that the graduat
ing youths and maidens would appear suf
ficiently mature and dignified If each one
was dressed in merely his or her Sunday
It was announced at the meeting that a
senior annual would be published, as usual,
by the high school paper, the "Register."
Lumlr Buresh, editor of the paper, wss ap
pointed chairman of a committee to get
bids on photographs this firm to get the
entire, contract for taking all the pictures
of the entire class of 200 students.
Mr. Graff, principal of the high school,
spoke to the class on making their prepara
tions for the commencement exercises and
the attending festivities economical enough
so that no student's pleasure would be
spoiled by his feeling that it would In any too expensive for him to undertake.
The class heartily endorsed his sentiments.
Warren Howard, one of the prominent
track athlete of the class, was elected track
captain, and will lead the class In lis con
tests with the other classes of the school.
Among other events announced was an
entertainment to be given about the middle
of April to show the talent In the class and
te raise a little money for a senior banquet
or social entertainment In which tbe whole
class will participate. As part of the show
the High School Glee club will furnish an
octet to take part In a minstrel show. The
Mandolin club will also take part. Other
features of the evening will be living pic
tures and tableaux, music by a capable
orchestra and minor acts.
The High School Cadet band will give a
band concert later In the season, under the
direction of Prof. Oeorge Green, band In
structor. Miss Kate McHugh announced Wednee
day that. In all probability, the commence
ment program of ths high school would be
held In the Brandeis theater.

elected mayor, P. H. Shields would be ap
pointed chief of police. Democratic spell
binders hoped to draw a few Bohemian
votes. It was confidently affirmed by the
same parties that In the event of the elec
tion of W. H. Queenan, Captain James
Sheehsn would b promoted to the office
of chief of police.
Last night P. H. Shields put an effectual
end to the talk of his position by slating
emphatically that he did not want such
a position under an elective board and that j
he would not seek nor accept the place If
offered. He said he resigned his position
expressly because the board
elicilve. He was offered the
chief of Armour & Company'
and considered It a far uetter placo In
many ways than service for the city.
' From the above statement which Mr
Shields authorized It will be seen that the
democratic plans will have to be altered.
The fact that James Sheehan Is openly
named as chief of police will not be pleas

First Day of Regis! rat loo.
The first day for the revision of regis
tration for the election of April 6 will be
March 10. The revisions will be conducted
by the Board of Registrars at the several
polling places of the city as heretofore.
The revision will be completed on the last
of three separate days. The fact that
many unregistered voters swore In their
vote at the primary does not place them
on the poll books for the election. These
men will have to appear before the
boards of registration and be enrolled.
Mayor Frank Koutsky has been busy i
with his election proclamation and will
soon have the same ready for publication.
In connection with the use of the Aus
tralian ballot it Is expected that the man

filed today, so that the questions involved
may be settltd In time to determine what
must be done.
