Petition Asralast Ckavnsjlnsr.
The petition below signed by about 1.00C
members of the student body ot the Uni
versity of Nebraska, was presented to the
Board of Regents:
We, the undersigned students of the
University of Nebraska, believing that
university athletics should be at least par
tially under the control of the students,
desire to petition the Nebraska. Board of
Regents to defer action on the recommen
dation of the chancellor and athletks board
until the proposed plan Is made plain to
aJl members of the university.
First We believe that athletics In their
nature are something which should be
controlled by the students and yet be sub
ject to faculty regulation.
Second That the proposed change should
be presented to the student body before
final action Is taken on it by the Board of
Regents. . ...
Third That the centralising of the con
trol under one man, as a director of ath
letlos, would not be for the best Interests
of the university sports as a whole.
Fourth That the new method has been
carefully worked out and secretly planned
by faculty members of the athletic board
without the consent or knowledge of the
student members of that body; and that
the recommendation has been "railroaded"
through contrary to the wishes of the stu
Dr. Ward, dean of the medical college
recommended that the requirements of the
medical college be increased so that It
will be necessary for applicants to have
had at least two years college training
before they will be eligible for entrance.
The recommendation Is that the require
ments include a minimum of at least two
years' college work lu addition to the
other requirements. This was referred to
the acting chancellor-elect.
Dr. C. Bl Bessey also recommended the
regents accept two splendid gifts which
nave been offered to the university. One
consisted of a collection of 38 specimens of
plants collected by. William Cleburne, for
merly of Omaha and now residing at New
port, Ky., and the other was a collection
of several thousand specimens ot Ne
braska plants collected by Prof, H. 3.
Webber, a graduate of the University of
Nebraska In 1839 and now a professor of
expert plant breeding at Cornell uni
versity. T. A. Klesselbaoh, a graduate of the Uni
versity of Nebraska, was el'eoted Instructor
In fields crops.
Dean Ward of the medical college rec
ommended the board secure the services of
Dr. F. Crelghton Wellman, a noted au
thority on tropical diseases and tropical
Mology for a series of lectures In Omaha.
The board adopted this resolution:
In the death of Dr. Blcknell, adjunct
professor of opthalmology and otology ot
ihe Omaha Medical college, we recognise
t severe loss to the university. In arrang

and the Omaha Medical college and in
solving the difficult problems which have
.(risen since then. Dr. Blcknell, as secre

GOVERNOR GARST IS EARLY
Iowa. Executive Bays He Wishes to
gee Exaosltloa as Well as
"I came a day early because I wanted to
see the Corn exposition," said Qovernor
Warren Garst of Iowa. Governor Oarst
will be a speaker on "Governors' day,"
Saturday. "All Iowa Is .interested In the
exposition, so far as I can Judge, and the
attendance from our state will be large.
"Iowa Is quieter in a polltloal way than
for years and there Is every prospect that
this will continue. It is a consummation
devoutly to be hoped at any rate."
Governor Garst assumed his title only a
few days ago upon the 'elevation of Mr.
Cummins to the senate. He had been the
latter's right hand man In the Internecine
warfare, which ha raged for several years
among Iowa republicans, and was the
candidate of the "progressives" for the
governorship In last June's primaries,
when Cummins was beaten by Senator
William B. Allison, and Garst by Governor
elect Carroll. Governor Garst seemed
likely to retire from Iowa politics, but the
death of Allison and th success of Cum
mins over Lacey In the senatorial primary
In November permits Mr. Garst to occupy
the gubernatorial chair for a time.
Mrs. Garst accompanied him here.

wrote me that he wanted me to come to
him Just as soon as possible and that he
was trying hard to get us a :ice Utile
home and would send for me soon. He
did not say that that home wo-ild be In
the city of Boston, but I expect some

STREETER AMAZED AT GROWTH
Former Omahaa Says lie Would
Scarcely Know City, Such Proa;

"How the old town does grow," said
Ed Streeter of Portland, Oregon at the
Henshaw Friday. "If 1 had been turned
loose without knowing whera I was 1
as sure I would not have recognized Omaha
from the changed appearance of the whole
sale district alone."
This from a man, who, at one time was
one of the head men In the house of Pax

mayor of the city of .Omaha, against E. E.
Howel. He sold that Omaha was surely
forging to the front and showing a pro
