UP FOR FRAY
Vrsity Engages Freshmen in Scrim
mage Tuesday after
noon. WASHBURN GAME IS SATURDAY
Selections for Positions on First
Team Not Yet An
nounced. With the opening game of the sea
on but three days distant, Coach
Schulte la now exerting every pos
sible effort to whip his team into
shape for. that date. This week has
witnessed a decided improvement in
the appearance of the Bquad on the
field. More fight and spirit has been
manifested by the Varsity than any
time hitherto. Schulte seems to be
ploased . with the progress of his
proteges and evidently believes that
the invading host from Washburn is
due for a licking next Saturday. He
is by no means letting up in the work,
however, as be realizes that the Kan
tans are likely to give the Huskers
a real tussle.
In scrimmage practice yesterday
the Freshmen and .Varsity battled
fairly even, neither seeming to tiave
any decided advantage over the other.
The lines of both eleven were ap
parently evenly matched as both back
Qeld combinations made about the
tame amount of gains. Newman, at
quarterback, generaled the Varsity
ranks and Dale, Moore, Hartley,
Hubka and Thompson lugged the pig
ikin. The Frosh were unable to stop
the terrific smashes of Hubka, the
Husker veteran going through for sev
eral long gains. On the .Yearling
crew, Noble, Dewitz, Morgan, Lamb
and Lewellen comprised the back
field. A reat forward pass completed
by the Freshmen, Lewellen to Lopp,
was responsible for the longest gain
of the entire encounter. Whether or
not the Varsity and Freshmen will
scrimmage again before the Wash
burn game has not yet been, an
nounced but it is probable that
Schulte will prescribe another skir
mish in order that the Varsity will
be in fighting trim Saturday.
Speculation is rife as to what lineup
will prance Into the field for the Scar
let and Cream in the Initial combat
of the year. No Inkling of what men
will start the game has as yet leaked
from the Athletic Department and
consequently the fans are making
various conjectures as to the men
Schulte will select In the backfield,
Newman will probably be stationed
at quarter, Hubka at full, and the
two halfbacks chosen from Wright,
Hale and Howarth. The line will be
likely to contain the familiar names
of Swanson, Dana, Pucelik, Weller.
Monte and Wade Munn and Captain
Day with a possible addition of
Voung, Moore, Berqulst and Scherer.
Whatever lineup will be started, how
ever, there Is little doubt but that
practically all of the squad will be
used unless the Washburnites take
Into their heads to pile up a, few
touchd- wns on the Cornhuskers. This
1an."M l not considered thieatening.
although the strength of Washburn is
by no means underestimated.
Freshmen Still Work at Farm.
AsRistant Coach Schlssler is still
drilling his plucky squad of Yearlings
on the State Farm gridiron. Schissler
is well pleased with the showing of
his proteges against the Varsity last
Saturday and believes that the next
time the two elevens meet, the Fresh
men will have things pretty much
their own way. The . Husker school
is certainly to be congratulated on
the wealth of first-year material pres
ent this year. The "Frosh" backfield
boasts of three huskies who can tear
off one hundred yards In ten seconds
"at In weight, took as well as speed.
Schlnsler's squad is not lacking. The
beefy Yearling forwards piled the
Varsity backs for losses time and
gain In the Saturday scrimmage.
TL'. Athletic Department hopes to
book several games for the Freshman
team this year, matching them with
the strongest teams of the state con
ference. The young Hufkers should
have ilttle trouVe In disposing of any
college eleven in the state.
NEW STUDENTS TO BE .
GIVEN MENTALITY TESTS
Dr. Winifred Hyde, of the Fsycology
Department, will examine all the stu
dents of the Freshman class today
She will use the mentality tests tnat
were originated at the University ol
Columbia. These same tests are now
given in every state university in
Dr. Hyde said that she will give
this same class a second examination
when they are Seniors as an experi
ment to discover whether the mind.L'
of the students will have changed
after four years of. study at the Uni
verslty. She admits that some w4!
show much more advance than others
depending on the effort that is excrter
in acquiring a. higher education. Dr
'Jyde has given the army psycology
test for two years, but has found tha'
it is inadequate for her purposes.
The tests will be given to groups of
two hundred each and will last threr
and a half hours!
The results of the tests will be
watched with interest by many people
outside the University.

Committee of Investigation Announces
Additional Names on Fra
BLOCKADE GRADUALLY LIFTING
Three men were today added to the
list of fraternity pledges. The process
of investigation is still in order arid
more names will probably bo added
to the growing list This controversy
has bten the result of a tangle in re
gard to pledging men into the Univer
sity Greek-letter organizations from
similar high school societies.
The affair has caused great delay
in tho acceptance of pledges by .the
special committee of investigation.
Considerable feeling has arisen be
tween the two factions concerned.
The blockade seems to bo clearing up
gradually as the high school secret
organizations give up their charter?
and membership lists. It appears
that the result will be the disbanding
of the Nebraska high school fra
ternities. The following are the lat
est additions to the lists:
Sigma Phi Epsilon.
David Derring, Sutton.
Sigma Alpha Epsilon.
Ralph Redfleld, Omaha.
Phi Kappa Psi.
Robert B. Parrott, Beatrice.
The lists are still incomplete, but

program offers a worthy cause tr
which every student should freely

2,800 Football Cards Given Solicitors
By 11 O'clock Tuesday
CAMPUS COMPETITION IS KEEN
Organizations and Fraternities Rating
Hundred Per Cent to Be
The campaign for the sale of stu
dent season football tickets for six
games on the home field started off
Tuesday morning with the momentum
of a drive of the allied armies. Over
2,800 season ticket booklets were
handed out to solicitors from the Stu
dent Activities Office before 11 o'clock
yesterday morning. An earnest effort
is being made to sell $3,000 worth or
tickets, and to pass the goal of $2,500
which was reached by committees
working under the guidance of the
Innocents Society last year.
As early as Monday noon groups of
cr.-eds from various sororities and
other organizations made the rounds
of dormitories, fraternity houses and
rooming places to urge students to
"promise" them their orders for
books. Each organization is behind
one individual who is working with an
eye for the round-trip ticket to the
Rutgers and Penn State games which
will be the prize for the person sell
ing the largest number of season
tickets before the end of the cam
paign Friday evening.
Record Made of Each Purchase.
When solicitors take the $5 which
entitles the bearer to a season ticket
for all home football games, they hand
the purchaser a card, bearing the
buyers name, address and class.
This card must be exchanged for the
coupon .booklet at the Student Ac
tivities Office. This book will admit
the purchaser to the Student Section
in the stands without reservation. A
record will be kept of every student
purchasing a ticket in order that stu
dents will know the organizations
that are supporting campus activities.
A list of 100 per cent organizations
and fraternities will be announced
after the drive closes Friday night
Two organizations hae already
pledged 100 per cent and many others
are fast rearing the goal.
The price of each ticket, which is
five dollars, enables students to save
seven dollars and makes the admis
sion price of each game lens than one
dollar. "I would gladly give five
dollars to witness the games with
Notre Darne and Washington State,"
said a Junior yesterday.
