Close Contest.

The practice of the 'arsity was
cry fast last mght and tne men ar
all in tho pink of condition. 'Flic
men were all out, but Kingsbury and
Koehlcr were kept out of the scrim
mages. Captain Wcstovor filled bis
position at tacklo having recovered
sufllcktly from his lameness, to allow
him to play without danger of an in
jury which would keep him out of
tho Haskell Indian game on Thanks
giving day.
After a short signal practice in
which tho plays were run through
with, a dash and a nurry, the team
took a few minutes rest, then lined
up against the scrubs. McDonald
kicked to Drain who returned ten
yards. The 'Vaisity then worked
the pig skin steadily down tho Held
tor a touch down. No sensational
playing was done in making this
score but It was made bv steady line
bucks and short end runs, Drain
kicked goal. Time about I minute-..
Alter the next kick-on" the 'Varsity
pushed the ball down to the Scrubs'
lifteon yard line when It was lost on
a fumble. Then tho Scrubs were al
lowed to advance the ball if they
could. Hut they could do nothing
with the 'Varsitj ilne and arter six
successive line bucks and attempted
end runs, McDonald punted. On
the exchange of punts Pillsbury bad
decidedly tho best of the bargain and
a few k, Unites later the second score
was made. Pillsbury punted out and
Drain kicked goal. The practice
closed with a short run.
Tho game played between the So
phomore and Freshman class teams
yesterday was a very pretty exhibition
of football. The teams are very
evenly matched and thev played in
dead carnnest. Both teams are
very hoavv for class teams andthey put
up a superior article of football.
Thoy'olayed only ono half and that
was not enough to decide which Is
the bettor of the two teams as the
Sophomores could only scoro a saTetv
against their opponents, although
tho play wab largely in Freshman ter
ritory. Tho Sophomores wee able to
work tho ball t within a few yards
of tho Freshman goal and there they
stopped. After tho three attempts at
scoring tho Freshmen would relieve
them of the ball and punt it ut or
Bridge and Hood, right half and
quarter back of tho Sophomores, de
servo especial mention on account of
their work in the game. Bridge is a
fast and steady man and never failed
to advance tho ball when called upon.
Some dispute, has arisen ir Lincoln
high school football circles as to who
aro tho football champions of Iowa
and Nebraska.
Tho team that played in '90f were
champions then, and then, and the
team tins year being an entirely
different aggregation- claim the same
Each team Is unwilling to share
the honor with tho other, so tomor-
The Kansas team seems to be In
bad shape from the effects of the
Saturday game. They are sore. Up
sides having their feelings hurt by
the big score rolled up against thorn
they are a very sore jot ot men physi
cally. The Kansas City Journal says
or them:
'Tho Kansas Urmerslty football
team arrived in this city yesterday
afternoon from Lincoln, and a more
bruised up crowd would be hard to
lind. Every one has marks or tho
grueling stnmglo with the Cornhusk
ers, and while none of the injuries
are serious, they are more or loss
painrul and rather disfiguring. Buz

hair and made the long urn which
terminated in thotoiich down, Is the
worst crinnled playei of the team,
nut he will be ablo to get into the
game by next Saturday, when the
Jayhawkcrs play Texas at Lawrence.
He went into the gamo with a broken
rib, which recieed some hard j)lts."
The same paper commends on the re
cent Improvements on the Nebraska
gridiron in these words:
"Nebraska hs a score board ar
rangement ror keeping the SDectators
posted on tho progress or tho gamo
that would meet with the hearty
commendation of the local football
rans If adopted in this city. It Is
very hard lor one in tho grand stand
to follow the dons mid yards to gain,
but with the system used by Nebras
ka all or tnis is made plain. The
scoring board, which is aoout ten
reet high and fourteen feet long, is
so arranged that It gives the score,
who has tho ball, what down, yards
to gain and touchdown and goal.
Four men manipulate tho board and
another man stands on the side line,
and by a (system oT lettered cards
untitles tho men at tho board, who
have it chan .red berore the next play
is off. Hy this method any spectator
can tell the exact stage ol the game,
and without llrst consulting his
ntbbors. Tno Nebraska Held is
also ai ranged so that every one can
see. No crowding out onto the side
lines there. A high wire tencc has
uecn built lound the gridiron, about
firteen foct back of the side lines.
No ono Is allowed inside or the fence,
unless ho has business there, and few

been erected, which all In all givos

Addresses the Students on Pla-garism---Involves
Lying and
Stealing---Oalls it an In
sult to University.
"Plagarism luis the wickedness of
stealing one's coat or ha;, lb also has
nil the guilt of lying. A man gets
something that does not belong to
him and ho lies to get It."
These aro the sentiments of Chan
cellor Andrews, expressed in chapel
yesterday. He spoko at some length
or this vlco as found In tho studen
body. It consisted, bo s.ud, of ap
propriating matter written by some
one else and passing it off as ones
own. He had l.oped that It would
not Invade the University and lie
further hoped to be able to check It
at its Inception.
Palgarism Is lyln a no tno world
hates lying. A literary man could
lose his character no quicker than by
stealing the work or anothor.
He pointed out another aspect of
plagarism In addition to its degrad
ing effect on the character.
"Why would one. who wished to
devel'ipe his body deliberately eschew
food and oat chalk? Why do wo come
to the University If not to developc
our minds? Do vonot"really want to
learn to think and have real montal
pover'J ir not we might as vsell stay
The Chancellor then went on to show
that this vlco deTeats tho whole pur
pose for v hich students attend the
University. Tho time ono passes
upon the work or anothor Is not his
own time.
"Do your own work," he said, "let
us be honest enough with ourpclves
to pass in our own work howevor
poor it is. Do your own part then
the faculty will know your woak
points and will be able to give help
where it is needed." Ho urged stu
dents to be strictly honest in all their
The Chancellor explained the seri
ousness of the vlco of plagarism when
committed in tho University, A
bank, he asid, would view olshonotsy
in ono of its employees with suc
more severity than It would tho pil
fering of a sneak thief. The Univer
sity in the same way mubt look at
plugai ism as a much more flagrant
offense than It committed in tbo
common walks or lire.
"Such an offense. "he said, "cannot
be passed over. It insults tho entire
teaching force and every one of the
chirlnnfu ' '
Ho declared that if it becomes
necessary, tbo University musi yurge
itself of those who practico it. It Is
tho worst crime that could be com
mitted against the faculty.
The Chancellor will speak this
morning on the recent election in
New York city.
