The lirst contest look place net ween

school teams, resulting in ietniy lor

two teams weie vei evi nlv malclieil
and nave a very pretty exhihtiimi of
the (,'iinii'. The niils Irom alum
were decidedly I h" stronger passing
the ha!l wit h considerable sk i II and
always in t h" name from hi ginning
to the end. At, times tneir playing
was so sharp t hat lluir dainty neinh
Lots trom the metropolis were .at a
loss to Know, w hat to do.
A Iter the first hall' of this L'ame
had heen played the Omaha Y W ('
A and the I 'diversity second leam
'played a swift and cxcitlnn nam'1 re
sult inn ii'a score of 1 1 to 7 in favor of
thevisiors. At the start t ninns look
er! very lavorahle for the uni verisly
nirls, Miss Ciai makinn a lmin throw
Irom the Held. This was at. once
followed by switt work from the
visitors, Miss Matliisand Miss Cor
t nidi" Maromlier. who recent ly granua
t tvi'f rnni the university tikinn sev
eral throws. The successful manner
in which Miss Matins threw goals is
worthy of note. Miss Maeomher
seemed not, at all emharassed by the
fact that she was playing anainst her
old associates on the university team,
llur plavinn was hard and swift from
start, to finish.
After these two panics caine the ex
citing contest, of fiie eveninn when
the pigmies from Wahoo, havinn won
their lirst name, were to wrestle
with tin; Y W C A team from Oma
ha which too had won in thelirsl
eon test. The sympathy or the au
dience seemed in bo with the little
nirls from Willi no, duo largely no
douiit to tin; fact that they were so
much smaller than their competitors.
The name started out hot and furi
ous. The pigmies were all over the
Moor at the same I line, iilockmn lung
throws and preventing almost cer
tain goal;. .So nreat was the dill'er
ence in the height of I he two compet
ing leauis that the Wahoo girls were
frequently cum el led Lu tlnow the
hall on the Hour in order to pass it
at all.
The game nejonged to either

a number of chances at the goal from

the convoc'ii inn last Friday. Mi
Meade is highest aulhoriky on Ihe li
ng. it ion quest Ion and gave some argil
incuts that aie well woilhym" c.ircliil
consideiat ion.
lie was reminded, lie said, ol t he
old itidian who could not see how
niari could be made mi; i, dnsl . Ne
braska, and in not I he ent ire est,
have plenty ol dust but that is not
sullieieni : we need water and mud.
The queslim of nrigat hm involves a
groat social problem. In past" wars
flic eastern portions of t he country
were in use and the neid of irrigation
was not, feif beci'iiso t here was plenty
of rain. the fill ure must, lie Tar
dilTeient liom tin; past. Arid re
gions, hit heito unset t led, will have
to maintain a populat uni and come
under t he plow.
There are today, said t he ' speaker,
between 7,."itio,0()() and oimi,uoi acres
under irrigal ion. This is a wonder
fully large amount, when we consider
that it has all come about through
private enterprise, and with no legis
lation whatever. It has been done,
however, in a haphazard way, because;
there was no need of economy. St reams
furnished plenty of water for all. To
lap a stream was a simple matter,
and nobody objected, but henceforth,
irrigation will have to be promoted
by lame corporations or by the state.
Private "apital will be entirely in
sullleicnt The question, said Mr Meade, is
not at all now. The future must tie
built upon the past and this very
fact gives the problem a complexity
that is almost never realized. Iiy
long years of usage, riveis have come
to be claimed Iiy diloreut peoples.
Even if the government were to as
sume full control of irrigation, what
would be dune with existing rights
and claims to streams and ditches-:'
Then; was at t irst such a disregard
nf rights that men have come to own
water supplies, as they own farms,
the rights to which can he bought
and sold. Yet. t hese sources of water
ought to be common property: for,
in the moral sense, there is nu such
a tirng; as"private owership or a
stream. Water wajs belong to the
county through' which they pass.
The distribution of water is or
greatest importance and can be dealt
with only by legislation. This ract
makes the problem too complicated
to oe solved by individual states. It
makes federal ownership uccehiiary.
Put the present need is nu edu
cation or the people so as to over
come a prevailing prejudice. People
