surprise Monday by defeating the
Ottawa team by a score .of 'M to 0.
From all accounts the game was a
walk avay for the u odors. The Ot
tawas had no chance of a score at any
time in the game. The only excuse
that can be offered foi the Kansans Is
that thoy had a hard game Saturday
and were not in the best nt condition.
The Interest In tho class foot-ball

To this, memoers of the faculty and

The Missouri team will be In
charge of Miss Helen Pender, of tho
University or Michigan. The play
ers come as tho guests of the 'varsity
team, who bring them from Colum
bia and entertain them. The invita
tion was extended in September and
the team should bo a strong one. It
is expected to reach Omaha with tho
foobtali team and to come to Lincoln
The 'varsity team for Nebraska
consists of three new players and
three old. Miss Eleanora Miller was
cautaln for two years and her clevor
and experienced work as forward
needs no comment. She is a good
general, knows the game well and Is
swilt and reliable Her colleague
this year Is Miss Minnie Jansa, a tall
freshman, who distinguished herself
as guard on the Wahoo team In the
tournament last year. Miss Jansa
prefers to plav guard, but is sure at
catching and a brilliant thrower, so
that her services woro demanded as
forward, in plnco of Biancho Em
mons. The centers aro nannah Pjlls
bury (captain) and Gertrude Macom
bor, promoted from tho position of
captain of the second team. Miss
Plllsbury retains hor old time speed
post and combining reckless disregard
of Injury with trustwortv guarding.
It Is folt that those forardR must
00 well who scoro against Miss Sly
and Miss Shields.
So far, tho team as a whole Is
poraowhat disorganized, owing to the
fact that they havo played together
but five or six times this season ahd
havo boon out of training; but it Is
likelv that by the end of the week
team work will be smoother and will
paBB under better control.
CHANCELLOR ANDREWS UK
CEPTON AT BROWN.
A privato lottor from a professor
in 13 row n Unlveristy to Professor
Metcair of tho Botany department,
contains the following account ol
Charcellor Andrews' reception at
"We havo been giving 'Benny' a
warm reception; never sinoo I havo
been professor hero has any man re
ceived such an ovation from students
and faculty and alumni. It was pre
arranged that tho faculty should
meet ano entertain him on Thursday
evening at tho Gorman seminar. The
students, however, to whom his fame
has descended added extra features
to the program. They first rang the
University bell for about an hour;
then with drum and life, red fire
and ronian ca'idlcs went down the
Infantry hall where he was speaking
and Just after 0 pm. escorted him
with immense enthusiasm and cheer
ing, back up tho hill to the Univer
sity. Thero they forced open the
gates and forming in double colums
escorted him and President Frauncc
to the front stepb of Soylo's Hail.
Thero he turned and addressed the
sea of young eager faces, who hung
upon his every woro. Comments all
around were: "This Is a mant"
Then while the faculty wero cntor
taining Andrews, the boys adjourned
to Lincoln field, where thoy built
several big bonfires, and cheered and
sang "For Benny's a jolly gftod fel-

Sam Crawford of tho claulnnati
baseball team and a Nebraska boy,
was married October :u to Ada M.
Latin, daughter of J. W. Lattin, an
Omaha stockman. In the season of
1001 ho made moro home runs than
any other player In tho national

and actlvljLyand her nj )illty to rise
to crises. To Miss Macomber has
rallen the difficult lot or filling the
place left vacant by Minnie Guile.
Miss Macomber is steady In match
games, koups hor hoad well, and is
always likely to emerge from a scrim
mage with the bab. Her work as
guard Ik gcnorally reliable. When
theso two centers have had oppor
tunity to get used to each other and
to work together better, they should
make a strong ouet. - -
Miss Sly, guard from last year's
team, now counts as one of tho
strongest guards the 'varisty team
has had. With the possible exception
of Miss Jansa, she is tho surest of
tho team at catching, is strong at
throwing and never fouls. So far
this season no playor matched against
her has been able to scoro a single
goal. Except for Miss Taylor's abil
ity to co-oporato with the centors,
Miss Sly's work seems .not less fault
less. The second guard, Miss Tay
lor's successor, is a player promoted
from tho second team, Miss Zora
Shields. There aro many promising
guards in school, some of them in
some ways moro brilliant. Miss
Shields was soleoted to help ..defend
tho Missouri goal because exporienced
