LY JLL JL i .l J V STUDENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY HAVE JOLLY TIME HERE Five Hundred Come Up to Spend Day in Omaha, and They Keep Busy Kcjrardless of Kain That Poured Down. TAKE TIME FOR SEEING TOWN Festivities End With a Dance at the Auditorium, Following the Lap Lunch. BOWLING MATCH WITH ORANGES I lie climax of a big day's enter tainment came last night when the visiting htudents of the University of Nebraska enjoyed the lap supper, fol lowed by entertainments and a dance at the Auditorium. Although the rain kept many away from Omaha, so that only .lot) stu dents came on the special train, it proved that many had eoine over on lluiisday evening, and Mill others came on afternoon trains Friday when the rains ceased. Thus when the crowds were all gathered at the Audi torium in the evening fully 500 were present. For an hour the students feasted on the big supper prepared by the manufacturers and jobbers of Omaha and handled by the merchants' market v.-eek committee. MareiV colored orchestra struck up taglime and even before the tables were chared a score of couples were dancing. And the Dance Is On. Noon the tables were cleared and .hutitlcd out. Then dancing became general. Joe Kelley, chairman of the merchants' market week committee, stepped upon the platform and made an announcement. No matter what he said, no one Jieard him, for there was lots of noise, and, anyway, Kelley had not finished his supper. He had his mouth full of ice cream which he uas getting in big bites from an ice cream brick in his hand. Following the announcement, the program went on in good shape, so it was assumed that he had announced its continua tion. Scores of students had pocketed ('ranges from the table and they be gan to roll them across the open space on the Auditorium floor. One Mopped in the middle. The students then began to roll at the one for a target. The snort developed into a big game of bowling with oranges. "I 'op, squash," and i two of them came together in a head-on collision in the center of the floor. Others struck the wreckage, arid in a moment broken oranges were scattered over the floor. v . , Engberg Restores Dignity. Dean Fngbcrg walked with charac teristic dignity out upon the floor. He began to kick the oranges out of sight and to clear the floor in general. It was wonderful how soon the orange rolling stopped. Dean ,Eng hcrg is the man who signs all the blue envelopes that "can" the hoys out of school. So there was silence and the orange howling stopped. The Knights of Columbus Glee club rendered some lively selections. Ga latea danced some of "her" noted writhings and Henry Cox's Omaha Symphony Study orchestra rendered a number of selections that were highly appreciated by the students. U. S. Ilarkson, a student, leaped upon a table in the center of the room and led the college yells until the big Auditorium walls fairly bulged with the pressure of the shouting. The dance started and continued until shortly before 9 o'clock, when the students hurried from the Audi torium down to the Burlington depot and boarded the train for Lincoln, pretty well pleased with the day's out ing, even it it did rain most of the time during their stay in Omaha, Met By High School Band.

Rare Elevation. His was one of the rare cases in which a parish priest was elevated without intermediate steps to the rank of archbishop. Late in 1914 he returned to St. Louis on a vinit and was given a re ception at St. Leo's chapel church, which he founded twenty-eight years ago. He later toured America and went to Koine, After a journey through Europe lie returned to the Philippines, 1 Extends Omaha Jurisdiction, v Cathode clergymen of Omaha who were asked concerning the amioint- mcnt of the new archbishop say that an archbishop here will bring under the supervision of its head the bis hoprics of Kearney, Cheyenne and Lincoln, Omaha's importance in church circles will be greatly en larged.

None of the local clergy is ac quainted with the archbishop, but all arc satisfied that his long residence in St. Loins will make him thoroughly familar with the problems existing here and they look for his administra tion to be of the greatest benefit to fhe Catholic church in this territory.

It is purely . speculation, however, as to who this successor will be, it being -asserted that if any person .iiiows, "the one pernou. is Judge Lov elt of Nvw York, the chairman of the executive committee of the road and also chairman of the board of direc tors of the Harriman system of roads The board of directors will hold its meeting in New York next week and immediately thereafter the an nouncement of the appointment of a president is expected to come from the executive committee.

Thompson, chairman of the legislative conmrittee which has been investigating wire tapping acti vities ot the police, "of treachery to the United States" because of bis at tempt to investigate ihe tapping of the telephone of the munitions-dealing firm of Seymour & Seymour. Mayor Mitchell in his statement demanded that Police Commissioner Woods be given an opportunity to explain publicly before the commit tee Ihe activities of the police in tap ping telephone wires "so far as they relate to the local situation." "Treason to the government" read the statement, "is defined in the law as giving aid and comfort to the ene mies of a government or a nation. To deliberately destroy one of the most powerful weapons in the hands of the government to detect and prevent the operations of public enemies; 1 brand as treachery, Every repetition of these attempts to disclose the op erations of the city police force made in the interest of self-advertisement constitutes a cumulative act of treachery toward the United States." This statement was issued after Chairman Thompson had announced that the inquiry into the wire tap ping would be continued at today's session, although in executive scs-, sion. Thompson told Corporation Counsel Lamar Hardy, representing Mayor Mitchel, that "there is not now and never was a question of in ternational interest involved in the case." This was after Hardy had pro- i tested against further inquiry into I the Seymour case on the ground that the national interests were at stake if publicity were given 10 the case.

"The official Italian reports of May 16 and 17 state that the Austro-Jfun-garian losses in these engagements were enormous. These reports were invented in order to diminish the im pression made by the Italian retreat. J he losses of the enemy can be es timated only by those who hold the battle field. The Italians are not in that position. The Austro-Hunga-riafls. while appreciating at its full value the sacrifice of every brave sol dier, are able to declare that the Austro-Hungariaii losses have been exceedingly small, thanks to the ability of the infantry, the powerful protection given by the artillery and the experience in war of the com manders."

A report on Ihe trial of Jeremiah C. Lynch from the American consul at Dublin, dated yesterday, was received at the State department today from Ambassador Page at London.
