Edltoi Daily Nebraskan I Hubmit
below a football song which came to
me the other night after a slight in
discretion along the buck-wheat cake
line. I trust that you will print it,
not because of any merit which it
may possess In itself, but in the hope
that it will provoke some one to
write a good one.
You will observe that the tense may
oasily be changed from the future to
the past. This will make the song
suitable for use after the game.
Whether it could be changed to the
passive mood in case our fondest
hopes are dashed, I cannot say.
What's the use? .1. A. K.
Air Coon, Coon. Coon.
Look out you big Norwegians.
Wc'io coming after you;
Last year we got your money.
We'll get the game now, too.
Nebraska's corn-fed players
Will make you look like tramps
And send you sprawling,
To your lumber camps.
Fix up the chapel bell.
Pull the rope like well.
Run up the old red light
And let it shine from Unl. hal
Because we'll beat them right.
You'll find your boasted line is
As full of holes as cheese,
And if there are no holes there
Well make them where we please.
You might as well look pleasant,
There's nothing else to do,
And take what Booth's got
Fixed for you
Another dose of Pill.
And If a man gets tired
Cap. John don't need to curse,
There're several more-just HkeMm, .
Or different, which Is worse.
We're going to play Northwestern
Upon Thanksgiving; so
Send one word "Victory"
O'er the telegraph.

AMONG THE DEBATERS.
Leland Stanford I Mate nl a Pos
sibility New Methods of
( housing Debaters Contemplated.
No new developments are an
nounced In the Leland Stanford-Nebraska
debate. The matter Is being
considered by the association.
it Is the growing belief on the part
of many of the members of the asso
ciation that the expense of the contest
would be too heavy to warrant the
University In taking It up. It 1b re
ceiving the serious attention of the
association, however, and the result
may be a meeting between the two
universities. The expense which
would be somewhere near $600 would
have to be borne in part by the visit
ing team. If a debate Is arranged for
at Leland Stanford this year a re
turn contest next your would have U
be promised. There is some doubt
expressed as to whether the students
would support U well enough to make

NEW BO'fLERS AT THE BOILER
Two new Heine boilers have been
placed In the boiler house and are
doing very satisfactory work. These
bollera are of 150 horse power each
and furnish enough steam and light
to supply the shops, laboratories,

the addition of these two boilers,
John Green, the engineer, will be able
to furnish all the heat and light nec
