the athletic board of the state univer

of the foot ball team , was asked to

Ing In Nebraska and continuing In
the office of manager , If ho were reelected -
elected , but ho did not think there

law school at Harvard next year. Sev
eral names have been mentioned for

Prominent among them are E. P.
Davis , Phillip Harrison and J. K.
Morrison. The latter has been assist
ant manager this last season. The
election will not take place until after

cally completed , which means that the
now manager may not assume his du
ties until about the middle of the
Next year's schedule Is gradually
growing in size , and although few
dates have been settled definitely it
Is pretty certain that contests will be
held again with the Haskell Indians
at Kansas City , Knox College at Lin
coln , Bellvuo College at Lincoln , and
Illinois university at Lincoln. In ad
dition a new foe has been chosen , in
Crelghton college of Omaha , whom the

PHI PSI8 NOT WANTED AT DANCE
Politely Notified to Stay Away From
the Cornluiskcr Function Which
Wns Given by the Congress of Fra
ternities In Lincoln Last Night.
Lincoln , Dec. 17. The Inimical feel
ing of the combined fraternities of the
university against a Greek letter so
ciety known as Phi Kappa Psl has
broken out afresh and as a result the
latter fraternity was barred from attendance
tendance at the Cornhnsker dance
given last night by the Pan-Hellenic
congress. Manager Buckner of the
football team , Issued a notice to the
effect that the dance was not a repre
sentative function , and the Alpha
Theta Chi withdrew1 from membership
in the Pan-Hellenic congress. Yet
the dance went merrily on and enough
money was raised to pay off the do-
licit of $80 In the accounts of the con
gress , caused ny the expense of the
banquet to the football team nt the
close of the season.
It Is a well known fact that the fra
ternities do not care to have anything
to do with the Phi Psls and all through
the fall that organization has recog-
nixed the fact and sent but a scanty
representation to the university func
tions. All the fraternity , however ,
attended the football banquet , an
event planned by the Pan-Hellenic
congress. As two men of the frater
nity wore on the team , there was no
way In which their brothers could bo
Ono of the fraternities Informed
the congress that Its members would
not attend the 'danco unless they
were given absolute assurance that
no Phi Psls would bo present. It
was then that Secretary Green ,
sf the congress , wrote to the Phi
Psls a letter intimating that their
presence would not bo congenial ,
which read as follows :
" 1 am Instructed by the Pan-Hellen
ic congress , of which you are not
members , to Inform you that the Corn-
liusker Informal , to bo held on Wed
nesday evening , December 10 , Is a
function given by and for the above
named organization. To facilitate
matters , kindly govern yourselves ac
"This dance is not for the football
team nor in honor of the football
team , " said Mr. Green. "It Is given
by and for the congress to make up
JSO which they have paid out of their
own pockets. An attempt is being
made to construe our action as an
Insult to members of the team. This
can not bo when the team has nothing
at all to do with the matter. Wo
simply want a good time and want
the Phi Psls to stay away. "
Manager Buckner has evidently
looked upon the matter as rolle'cting
an members of the team , for Monday
ho issued a notice that the dance
would not bo n representative affair.
It Is as follows :
"Inasmuch as the assistant mana
ger , captain and one other member of
the Cornluiskcr football team have
boon requested not to attend the first
Cornhuskor informal on December 13 ,
the public is Informed that the same
Is not a representative function and
are requested to act accordingly. "

Buckner Is a member , withdrew from
Arrested for Wife Desertion.
Hastings , Neb. , Dec. 17. A painter
representing himself to bo C. P.

iff Powers of Douglas county and
taken to Omaha to answer the charge
of wife desertion. The complaining
witness is an Omaha woman who
claims to be his wife and that his
right name Is C. P. Burtolsen. Bow
ers was living with a woman hero
whom he alleged to bo his wife. She ,
however , disavows the relationship

son , the husband of the complaining
Omaha woman , but that it is a case
of mistaken Identity.

As showing the difficulties exper

witnesses , It may bo stated that two
Interpreters were necessary. The In

of them could speak English unit thus
It wan that a Sioux gave his testimony
to another Kloux , who Interpreted It

as long as my strength will permit.
I advertise because I have some
