we are "hlsn." At any rate the Colo
rado debaters were scheduled to arrive
in Lincoln at 5 o'clock this morning,
when, they were taken to the Llndell
hotel, where they will be the guests
of the debating association. Those
who are not able to get a glimpse of
the "Websters" from Colorado during

versity hall on the" faculty ' bulletin.
They look as If they came for busi
ness and it is very probable that the
Memorial hall tonight will be the
busiest place In Lincoln.
Extensive preparations have been
Koing on for -some time and the debate
tonight promises to be a very success
ful affair from every point of view.
Not only will those attending be given
an opportunity to listen to the best
speakers whiph tho two universities
can put up, but also to hear the gov
ernor of Nebraska preside at the de
bate and the university band render
some of tho selections which have

governed by their ability to debate, it
is very probable that all the law stu

that the speakers may not be inter

no one will bo permitted to enter while

Tho Judges of tho debate for the

to Interrupt the speakers.
The attendance at convocation Wed
nesday morning was not as large as it
should have been and the mass meet
ing In tho interests of debating was
rather devoid of the enthusiasm so
manifest in like meetings last fall.
Chancellor"vAndrowB, in Introducing
the subject, laid Bpecial stress upon
the support duo all teams of the uni
versity by tho student body.
Prof. E. A. Itoss. who is lecturing at
Harvard this week, sent the following
note, which Chancellor Andrews read
and emphasized:
"Though I am absent, my heart is
with you In the debating roll. Surely
the team which has for three months
been working in silence will be greeted
by a full and cheering house. Every
footbnll enthusiast wjll attend, unless
ho thinks brawn deserves more en
couragement than brain."
Professor Fogg, when Introduced,
gave two reasons why the university
shquld support the thinking contest

The Nebraska Wesleyan nine proved
easy victims to the superior skill and
ability of the 'varsity team yesterday,
being defeated by a score of 18 to 1,
after seven Innings of rather one
sided play. ThlB was the first game of
the season with a team from another
school and the boys were given a fair
chance to show what they could do.
The Methodists were out-played in
every respect, and could hardly make
tho game Interesting to Captain Bell's
colts. The Wesleyan men have not
had the practice and experience of the
university team, and It Is greatly to
their credit that they were able to do
what they did
