The football team arrived home to
day about 1:00 o'clock over the north
western. The 'Varsity spent yester
day at Lake Mlnctonka. sailing, fish
ing, hunting and boating. Professor
Wyer entertained the boys at his
father's home on the lake shore.
There was no practice for the first
toam last night. Only one team of
scrubs was out but they put up a fast
practice. For a new man that has never
played any football Myers Is putting
up a very fast game at half back. The
men worked steady and fast. Only a
few fumbles were made and the prac
tice was generally satisfactory to As
sistant Coach Melford. Hickle is mak
ing a good showing at center. In case
Koehler should be Injured he will
make a .strong substitute. While he
Is inexperienced he is rauldly devel
oping and with a year's work would
uphold the average of Nebraska's
centers. Tho practice closed with a
long run of several times around the
Captain Westover's tackling dum
iny will be rigged up for practice in
tackling. After -a day or two's rest
the men will be out again for regular

HOW THE NEWS OF THE GAME)
The Daily bulletins, were the only
ones that pretended to keep up with
the game Saturday. From three
o'clock 0& ttyey camein at intervals
of from five tiJlx minutes. From
the.ofllce fn, corns of messengers' hur
ried the bulletins to the waiting
crowds In front of the Ewlng Clothing
Cq'b. windows. No time was lost. The
Daily's telephone kept one man busy
all the time up to six o'clock when the
calls became less frequent.
From three o'clock on, eager crowds
watched Ewlng Bros.' show window
as the bulletins came In. At times
tho showers would drive some to
shelter but the main body shivered
and watched through It all.
At 'the same time a crowd nearly
filling the old chapel watched another
bulletin from the. Dally office. As
soon as the footsteps of the messenger
were heard on the stetfs a dozen men
would rush for the door eager to hear
For a time all were hopeful. At the
end of the first half there was still
enthusiasm enough to" make the old
chapel ring as the yells went up.
But as the score mounted higher and
higher and still Nebraska made no
points the cheers failed to come.
,When the last bulotln came In the
crowd filed silently out and some one
started to toll the chapel bell.

SOPHOMORE PROCLAMATION RE
PEALED. The Sophomores a short time ago
Issued a proclamation to the Fresh
man, the main contents of which were
that any Freshman should refrain
from smoking pipes and wearing golf
trousers on the campus.
Copies of the proclamation were
placed on all the sidewalks leading
to the University. The faculty, on
seeing them, dlsaproved greatly be
cause the sentiment seemed to be In
troductory to hazing and the language
was offensive. Several prominent So
phomores were called before the
disciplinary committee. On being
questioned ,they said, they were not
alone to blame, that the proclamation
was an action of .the class. The com
mittee decided that if these few could,
obtain the signatures of thirty of the
class to an apology, they would be
allowed to go without further pun
ishment. K. U. Weekly.
