ancient hunger for Nebraska's scalp.
Nebraska won last year. They havo
that to avenge. But when they get

Dissatisfaction is abroad among
tho recently applonted caaet olllcers.
H-indlcatlons are correct, resigna

largo number of the officers and non
commissioned officers. It was rum

that tho list would include men of

The reason for tho step is said to

claim that the recommendations of

Mr. Smith after reading a few
