Sopbomoros Win from Seniors and Juniors
from Freshmen at Glass Tourna
ment. Junior Claim
(Irani Memorial liall wiir tho scene
of intense excitement and (lass rivalry
Saturday night, where, before a repre
i(Mitntio unlveislty audience, two
games of basket-ball were playrd be
twcoii the class teams, as follown:
Seniors s sophomores, and juniors vs.
lieshmcn. Tlie sophomores defeated
the seniors by a score of 24 to 21 and
the juniors won from the freshmen by
a score of 111 to 10.
The championship series was begun
by the game between the sophomorcB
and seniors, i he game was one of tne
prettiest exhibitions of class basket
ball witnessed in the armoi'y for some
time. At the end of ine first half the
score stood 10 to 8 In favor of the
under classmen. Myers at forward and
Audreson at guard did excellent work
for tne sophomores, while Rose, Kel
logg and Morrill proven to be the stars
on the senior team In the last half
Teach for the seniors took the place
of Nelson at guard, but was unable to
keep Myers, the sophomore forward,
from throwing goals. Once during the
last half the score waa 1!) to 17 In
favor of the seniors, after which the
score was tied and remained 21 to 21
until very near the close of the game,
when Myers,, taking advantage of a
free throw, found the basket and
brought the final score, 21 to 21.
The game was well played and was
free from the usual rough playing
characteristic of class basket-ball.
The senior team, although unable to
win a game during the year, has put up
a good exhibition at every jame and
has given every opponent a hard con
test. Three games have been played
with the following results: Seniors vs.
Sophomores, 10-15; juniors vs seniors,
2X-21; sophomores vs. seniors, 24-21.
Total wore of seniors for the season is
of), opponents 67. In te game Satur
day evening, for the seniors, Kellogg
threw four goals, Thomas and Morrill
one goal each. Thomas threw three
fouls. For the sophomores, Myers
threw five goals, Elliott two and Mc
Cutchen three fouls.
The second game of the evening was
the most exciting because it was to
decide whether the freshmen or the
juniors were to be champions. Class
rivalry was at Its highest. Squads of
freshmen collected on the south side
of the armory and kept up a continual
yell, while the juniors, aroused from
their proverbial lethargy, were well
organized In squads at the west end
under the leadership of President
Black. While -the rooting of both
classes waB effective as an inspiration
-to the teams, it, at, times, partook of
dlsngreoableness. Hissing at individ
ual players in attempts to throw fouls
was common, especially among the
freshmen, and a few times both classes
undertook to rebuke the referee, un
necessarily. The game was fast and well played
from beginning to end, the freshmen
halng a little the better of the game
In team work. The first half whs ex
ceptionally interesting, neither side
throwing a goal from the field. Each
team threw a foul and the score stood
I to 1. Thesecond half brought out
renewed vimlin the juniors. Ferguson
succeeded ill throwing two goals,
Noyes one and Hiltner one, while for
the freshmen McDonald and Hankins
each threw a goal and Lehmer threw
three fouls. Hiltner for the juniors
of both teams was good, the Individual
playing was much better. The fresh
men guards. Hoar and Beers, did ex
ceptionally good work. Beers succeed
ed in keeping Ferguson, the tall Junior
forward, from making more than two
goals. Hiltner and Gilbert proved to
be the stars of the junior team.
There was considerable discussion
after the game as to whom the cham
pionship belonged. The sophomores
hold that the championship cannot be
claimed by the juniors, who have not
yet played them, while the juniors
claim the honor Bince they have de
feated the freshmen, who previously
defeated the sophomores after the
sophomores had won from the seniors.
It will perhaps be necessary to submit
the matter to a committee on arbitra
tion before the minds of the disputants
can be satisfied.
During the evening the Ideal Mando
lin club furnished excellent music,
playing before the games began and
also between halves. The line-tip of
the teams was as follows:

8. T. Goishardt Speaks on thoir Dovol-
opmont and Construction.
Ideal is Not Yet
The evolution of the art of library
building has tended to emphnsl.c In
terior decoration first, and outward
decoration afterward, said S. L. Gels
thnrdt in an address before the convo
cation Friday. This evolution has
been from the first conception of a
library building, which was the old ca
thedral plan, to the present style.
which, he asserted, Is not yet ldenl.
The speaker declared that while
architects abound In great number who
can put tip a dwelling which is almost
perfect in Its appoointments, there are
not so many who enn contsruct a
library building.
There are some rules of construc
tion recognized by all modern design
ers. The building should be adapted
to the needs of the community In
which it is built. It should be planned
from within outward. Economical ad
ministration is imperative. Architec
tural features should be subordinated
to convenience. Interior decoration
should be of such a kind as not to de
tract from serious work. Upon these
features there are few who disagree.
Mr. Gelsthardt warmly espoused the
open shelf system of arranging books.
Instead of a vault where the volumes
are stored and drawn out by the libra
rians, he believed in shelves accessible
to the public. In thlB way a taBte for
reading is stimulated. The immense
good done and the Baving In the time
of the library force more than coun
terbalanced the loss by petty thieving.

An enthusiastic meeting of students
interested in the present campaign
which is being waged in Lincoln
against saloons wns held in the "old
chapel" Saturday afternoon. A tem
porary organization was first effected
and a committee on resolutions ap
pointed. The name of University Non
partisan Anti-License league was
agreed upon. The following officers
were then elected: President, J. D.
Dasenbrock; vice president, E. F.
Bliss; secretary. J. L. Schuyleman;
treasurer, L. W. Turner, and as repre
sentative to confer with the city or
ganization, S. C. Hawthorne.
A press committee and a program
committee were appointed, and full
preparations made for pushing the
work from now till election.
Professor Hodgman being called
upon, responded with some very prac
tical remarks on the situation from
the standpoint of the university and
the business man. He said in Bub
stance that the organization should be
above all, non-partisan. As to the
moral phase of the question, the over
whelming opinion Is that the saloon is
harmful. The question is, "What Is
the greatest good to the greatest num
ber?" Tne voters as a whole seldom
come out at city elections and leave
the decision to a small part of the
community. A few Interested people
thus dictate to the great majority who
have absolutely no use for the saloon.
A few arguments were brought for
ward representing each side. There
would, he said, bo forty-two empty
buildings and ?i2,000 less in the school
fund. There would bo less support in
political campaigns. He pointed out
that on the other hand the university
and the students expended $760,000 in
Lincoln every year.
"Shall we," he said, "allow the sa
loon to dictate to us? Ninety-nino out
of a hundred students have no need
of the saloon in any way. Tho strength
of tho saloons depends almost entirely
on jthelr.. solidarity and,, the cash with
wnfcfi they will oack tho movement
University men, he declared, must
unite as "nrrniy"and bo as energetic as
they and then the movement will bo
successful. A
