ProBpccts for a Thanksgiving Gamo
with toam good Ooach Booth
Undecided- May Leave
tho Gridiron.
Judging from tho word received
from Manager Cowgill yestorday the
project for a Tbanksigving camo
with Jowa noxt year lias fallen
through. A telegram from him an
nounces that ire omi schedule a game
with Northwestorn for that date on
cortaln conditions. These are that
Nebraska guarantee them $1,500 with
an option of half tho gate receipts if
thoy so desire. Tho anwser of the
board to tho effect that the offer
wiuld bo acceptable if Northwestern
would promise Nebraska a game year
after next on a tlftv per cent basis.
This telegram .is taken to mean
that nono of thev other members of
the big nine would schedule for that
date. It r as tho acsiro of tho board
to closo tho season with an old timo
contest with Iowa next year. Evi
dently no Buclr arrangements rjould bo
made. If Northwestern thinks
avorablv of tho terms it is probable
that tho gamo will be scheduled.
Manager Cowgill will 'return today
from his Chicago trip.
Tho announcement that thero is a
possibility of losing-Goach Booth has
brougnt tho student body to a real
ization of what his loss would mean
to Nobraska. It is felt that the po
sition the University occupies today
in western athletics is due in no
small measure to him. Jusc now as
Nebraska, for tho first timo In her
history, is on a linn financial footing
the loss of Coach Booth would be a
serious blow
Nuthin'e dofinito oan bo announcod
yot as conditions aro such that tho
Coach will not be aolo to render a de
oision for a few weeks. IIo nas not
fully decided whether ho will coach
next year or not. IIo may decido to

board has aono all that thoy can do
to induce him to remain ana it is
thought that in case ho decides to
contlnuo his football work Nobraska
will have a decided advantauo Coach
Booth expresses great satisfaction at
his treatmont since his connection
with the University and unles3 some
financial Inducement is offered,
which tho Nooraska board cannot
meet he will probably coach tho team
noxt year. Thoro is some talk that
if the board Is not able to meet tho
"proposition of Wisconsin, a subsorlp
' oa among tho studonts will bo
rosortcd to in order to meet the do-'
flclenoy JIhh, latter" proposition
Bcoras to meet with general" approval
with tiio students. '
Instead of secret practlco last night
as announced, tno team lined up
against tho scrubs before a good sized
crowd of football enthusiasts. The
play was fast and snappy and tho
earn showed up in excellent form.
Except for a few minor injuries tho
effects, of tho Kansas gamo have on
tlroly worn off. t
J A ElNght injury to Cortelypu's knee
' ast night may keep hint off tho grid
iron for some timo and may prevent
lilsigoipg in tho ganqo.Thursday. bomo
bf tho ligaments in his kneo were m-
v jurcd and while tho injury Is not
considered serious ho will bo unablo
to uso Ills leg for a few days at least.
A rumor to tho offect that Pillsbury
would not play Is evidently falso and
the rootors may count on seeing him
in tho game. Ho was out as usual
last night. Bonder will also bo In
die line-ap from now on.
If Nobraska plays a poor game
Thursday It will not be on account or
over confldonco. Whllo every one
looks for a victory none of tho team
aro expecting anything but a hard
game of genuine rortball. It will.
Without doubt, be a much better ex
hibition than cither the Kansas or
tho Ames game. With the exception
of Minnesota tho Indians have been
victorious over every opponent thoy
have met this year
Tickets for tho game aro sellinz
rapidly. The assuranco of shelter
afloidod by tho new grand stand is
attracting many who would not
otherwise attend.
Owing to the fact that a number of
tho mombors wish to start homo
Wednesday afternoon to spend tho
Thanksgiving vacation, the regular
mepting of tho Engineering Society
will rako place Tuesday at 7:30 pm.

In his opening words Professor
Howard stated that thofe was noth

"I amvglad to get baok," ho further

ProfoESor Howard aUo added that
ho hoped Nebraska would bv all

athletics and said no pains shou'd bo
spared to such an ond.

Professor iloward then touched on
tho subject of co-caucatiun and ex
pressed himself in vory warm terms
of his belief In tho value of such an
institution. "Thero is a lovellng
and a moulding up of tho sexes, and
tho womon In some cases aro loading
tiro men."
"It Is nooessary for a state institu
tion to oncourago all the social virtue
possiblo, and crudencss and rudoness
ln.all things should be taken out." ,
Tho sophomores and seniors will
contest for championship class honors
on the grldirjm. this jitternQQnaL

Thero is much rivalry between tho
two teams and an exciting contest is
expected The senior "Co-Eds" will
bo out to root for tho senior boys.
C. E. Teach will bo In charge of tho
senior rooting squad.
In order that tho contest may bo
a clean class contest, lists will be sab
raittedby each team to the Registrar
to ascertain tnat each man is en
titled to play on his olass team.
This will shut out all men who aro
not In tho respeotivo class and who
have no right to play.
Tho seniors defeated tho freshmen
-Saturday by tho decisive score of 12
to .0. The Sophomores won from them
with a score of 2 to 0. -Judging
from'comparativo scores a close and
interesting game can bo expected.

al "annual boards" .electod by tho
sonlor Law class rcslgnd last night,
in order to offect a compromise. A
mooting is called for this afternoon
to elect a now and harmonious board.
Tho Sonlor Academics voted in
their Saturday mooting to glvo tho
Senior Laws four days in whioh to
Bubmit a list of three fourtns of tho
senior Law class who would havo
thcli cuts put In tho senior book and
actively support it.
If tho "LawyorB" cannot secure
tho required number, tho plan for a
joint publication of the olass annual
will bo abandoned and tho "Acaao
rales" will proceed on Thursday with
out the co-operation of the Law
class, to arrange for the publication
of a distinctly acadomic book.
This dcoislvo action was necessary
to prevent delay, which would injure
liho-success-of-tho-boolc. -
The factional fight In the Law
class had assumed the character of a
foua and, promised to continue all
year. So the aoadomlcs thought suoh
deoisivo action as was taken might
effect a compromlso and at the samo
time hasten the work on tho annual.
At tho opening of tho mo eting the
two factions were given sovon min
utes each to present the facts of
their case to tho class. The ''regu

glns atid tho "Antis'.' by O'OOnnelir
Several other lawyers wero presenb'to

the grounds that all "Law olass

of tho ''Academic" class wore cn-

Much friendly feeling is manifest
and 1f tho ''senior Laws' ' arebla
to secure harmonious action the Joint
